#REDIRECT [[Jinchūriki Forms]]
[[Naruto Uzumaki]] is the third [[jinchūriki]] of [[Kurama]] — the Nine-Tails. He is gifted with its enormous supply of [[chakra]], to which [[Kakashi Hatake]] estimated it to be a hundred times greater than his own when its influence is not suppressed.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 315, page 11</ref> It also gives Naruto accelerated healing (recovering from minor injuries within seconds and major injuries within a day). Also, depending on the amount of Kurama's chakra he's using, Naruto is given an increase in strength, speed, and his healing factor are pushed to such levels that he completely recovered from a [[Chidori]] through his chest in mere moments with no lingering signs of injury.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 228, pages 10-18</ref> At times, he is also granted a fox-shaped chakra shroud with massive invulnerability, being able to resist being pierced by [[Orochimaru]]'s Sword of Kusanagi, a sword known as being able to cut through [[Transformation: Adamantine Staff|adamantine]], and is completely undamaged by the [[Leech Gap|alkali substance]] excreted by [[Saiken]], which was able to damage [[Gyūki]] and disintegrate its surroundings rapidly.
Due to the [[Eight Trigrams Seal]] that his father, [[Minato Namikaze]], the Fourth [[Hokage]], placed on him, it had allowed a small amount of Kurama's chakra to always mix with Naruto's own. Kurama's chakra first came to Naruto during life-threatening situations, given to him by the fox itself to ensure its survival, but after training with [[Jiraiya]], Naruto learned how to contact Kurama and demand some of its chakra. Alternatively, Naruto could give into his anger or frustration, allowing Kurama to force its influence upon him. Depending on how much he gained, Kurama's influence within its chakra could make Naruto lose control of his senses, devolving into an animal that attacks anything within reach, as well as damaging his own body, slowly shortening his lifespan. Although a number of methods had been devised to break its influence over Naruto (Jiraiya's [[Chakra-Suppressing Seal|seal tag]],<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 277, pages 9-10</ref> and [[Yamato]]'s [[Hokage-Style Sixty-Year-Old Technique — Kakuan Entering Society with Bliss-Bringing Hands]], which was facilitated by [[Hashirama Senju]]'s [[First Hokage's Necklace|necklace]] Naruto wore before its destruction),<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 296, pages 15-16</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 438, pages 2-4</ref> Naruto simply limited his use of Kurama's chakra, and tried not to allow his anger get the better of him, but he eventually attempted to exercise more [[Tailed Beast Control|control]] over it, in which he was able to achieve during the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]].
After combining his chakra with Kurama's and recently developed a trusting relationship, Naruto and the fox can switch control of his body at will, allowing Kurama to speak through him.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 594, page 5</ref>
== Initial Jinchūriki Form ==
[[File:Glowingnaruto.jpg|thumb|left|Naruto's initial jinchūriki form.]]
By simply tapping into Kurama's chakra, Naruto's body begins its initial transformation. His blue eyes become red and pupils become slitted. Following this, his nails and canine teeth grow longer and sharper and his blonde hair will grow longer and spikier, as it stands on end. Naruto's whisker marks will also widen and thicken, adding to his feral appearance. While he can still stand on his own two feet, Naruto can move at greater speeds by manoeuvring on all fours in a manner that looks similar to the [[Four Legs Technique]] used by the [[Inuzuka clan]]. Depending on how much of Kurama's chakra was unleashed, it was capable of glowing around his body in an untamed way, similar to fire. Until he achieved the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, it was the only form which resembled flames.
Even though this was the weakest state of his jinchūriki forms, it still increased Naruto's physical strength,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 48, pages 16-18</ref> and its healing rate was able to regenerate wounds that were beyond normal repair.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 228, pages 10-18</ref> This form also increased his speed to such levels that nothing short of a fully matured [[Sharingan]] was able to track his movements. He could also use the chakra as a shock wave, sometimes merely using a [[Tailed Beast Shockwave|roar]] or thrusting his fist out to send a rush of energy at his opponent.
When Naruto encountered [[Nagato]] face to face, he was shown to be able to simultaneously fuse his initial and [[Sage Mode]] forms together. His eyes took on the combined appearance of a mixture of them both. The exact capabilities of that form are unknown, but it was enough to completely resist Nagato's control of his [[Chakra Disruption Blades]] when it impaled Naruto.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 444, page 4</ref>
== Version 1 ==
[[File:Vermillion Rasengan.png|thumb|Naruto in his one-tailed form, forming the Rasengan.]]
During Naruto's battle with Sasuke at the [[Valley of the End]], Kurama granted Naruto more of its chakra, which enveloped Naruto's body as a bubbling chakra construct, with one tail, which [[Jiraiya]] referred to as the {{translation|"demon fox cloak"|妖狐の衣|yōko no koromo}}.<ref name="ch291">''Naruto'' chapter 291, page 11</ref> Naruto's Version 1 forms had all the initial jinchūriki form's physical traits, but the black rings that surrounded his more berserk-looking eyes were also present. In this form, Naruto could use his elongated, sharpened claws instead of his fists, and run at greater speeds on all fours, making him more beast-like. The chakra itself in this form was noticeably denser than it was in its previous form, going from a gaseous state to a boiling liquid state. The chakra produced by these forms was powerful enough to cause the shadow clones Naruto produced to double over in pain.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 277, page 9</ref>
[[File:2 demonic tails.jpg|thumb|left|Naruto's two-tailed form.]]
Unlike jinchūriki who have learned to control their tailed beasts, like [[Killer B]], Naruto's transformations were almost always triggered by his emotional state. The more he was distressed, the easier it was for Kurama to manipulate him through its chakra; its control over Naruto usually corresponds with the number of tails grown. Naruto was able to reach the third tail of Version 1 and remain in control over his body, but will become highly aggressive and dangerous due to the negative influence of Kurama's chakra.
[[File:ThreetailsNaruto.jpg|thumb|Naruto's three-tailed form.]]
Naruto's most powerful weapon in that state was the demon fox shroud itself, and it appeared to have a mind of its own; when a strike that was meant for Sasuke missed, the chakra itself stretched off of Naruto's arm and managed to hit Sasuke before he had time to react. Since the chakra was sentient, it was extremely difficult, if not impossible, to predict, as Naruto was followed with the Sharingan, but the chakra was not. The shroud granted Naruto some measure of protection, as it could endure attacks like the [[Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 231, pages 5-10</ref> Naruto could also use the shroud's [[Tailed Beast Chakra Arms|chakra arms]] and tail as grappling hooks to either grab onto objects or enemies from great distances, and use it as a shell to help him create a [[Rasengan]] without the help of his [[Shadow Clone Technique|shadow clones]]. However, the shroud was not without its drawbacks; after Naruto used his left arm for a number of attacks against Sasuke, it was left numb from overuse and the constant damage of Kurama's chakra on his body.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 232, page 8</ref> Despite this, every advantage that the shroud gives Naruto increases in strength with each tail. For example, his [[Tailed Beast Shockwave|roar]] that simply caused a powerful shock wave in his initial jinchūriki form, created an even more devastating wave of destruction when his third tail grew.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 292, page 9</ref> In ''[[Naruto Shippūden 2: Bonds]]'', while fighting the [[Zero-Tails]], Naruto was able to use the demon fox shroud to use the chakra arms as makeshift wings for semi-flight.
== Version 2 ==
[[File:Four tailed transformation.jpg|thumb|left|Naruto's four-tailed form.]]
During [[Team Yamato]]'s mission to find Sasuke, the group found and fought [[Orochimaru]], who continually baited Naruto with news of Sasuke. After the three-tailed form was rendered ineffective, Naruto became furious and instantly grew the fourth tail. Within his subconscious, Naruto passed through the gates of Kurama's cage and into its grasp. Its chakra burns through his skin, forming a black sphere that was mixed with Naruto's own blood until the sphere explodes, levelling the area around him and revealing Version 2. Unlike [[B]], who has shown to be able to enter Version 2 with any number of tails, Naruto cannot achieve this form on his own, instead was forced upon his body by Kurama through the weakened seal, which allowed the fourth tail to grow. Once the sixth tail grew, the beast's skeleton began to form out of the chakra.
[[File:Six Tailed Form.PNG|thumb|Naruto's six-tailed form.]]
Unlike the previous forms where Naruto remained in control, Kurama had complete control over Naruto's body, making him a mere endoskeleton for its chakra. The chakra's internal support became Naruto's physical mass, with every living thing in its way a target.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 295, page 3</ref>. Every benefit of the Version 1 was transferred to Version 2 with massive upgrades; a simple wave of his hand was powerful enough to fire shock waves and the chakra wrapped around Naruto's body was so hot that victims were burned and poisoned by the foul chakra. Whenever Naruto was hit, a second body would form out of the chakra to attack instantly, and Kurama was able to fire a [[Tailed Beast Ball]] that was powerful enough to destroy [[Summoning: Triple Rashōmon|three Rashōmon gates]] without losing momentum.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 295, pages 6-11</ref> In the anime, it could generate numerous bodies, almost completely altering its own form into an amorphous blob, with which it was able to attack from all directions, and create a [[Nine-Tails Twister|twister]] with just one slash from its claw.<ref name="ep167">''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 167</ref> By the six-tailed form, the chakra was so intense that Kurama was able to resist the [[First Hokage's Necklace|seal of the First's necklace]] and force [[Pain]]'s [[Shinra Tensei]] back on him. Curiously, in the anime, the six-tailed form's demon fox shroud managed to swim through and direct a body of water with its own movement without vaporising it, and also touched the Deva Path without burning him.<ref name="ep167"/>
In the end, Version 2 was Naruto's greatest downfall. Because Kurama's chakra was constantly destroying and creating new cells, it [[Wikipedia:Hayflick limit|shortens Naruto's life]], similar to [[Tsunade]]'s [[Creation Rebirth]]. When the four-tailed form was finally repressed, Naruto needed immediate healing, as his skin was completely stripped off.<ref name="ch291"/> Naruto first slipped into this form when he was on a two-and-a-half year training with Jiraiya, who had used the [[Eight Trigrams Sealing Style#Key|key]] to weaken the seal for just a short time. And for that, it allowed enough of Kurama's influence within its chakra to leak out of the seal and produce the form, in turn almost killing Jiraiya.
[[File:Seven tailed form.png|thumb|left|Naruto's seven-tailed form.]]
In the anime-exclusive [[Chikara Arc]], after being overcome by Kurama's will while in an imperfect Tailed Beast Mode, Naruto underwent a transformation into Version 2. Naruto's manifestation of Kurama, which had previously been the yellow colour of his own chakra and possessed six tails, took on the colour of Version 2 and grew a seventh. Its head and hands also took on a more feral appearance, and the bones and skeletal structure that had appeared in Naruto's six-tailed form also formed, although within the construct of Kurama as opposed to outside of it. Within the construct, Naruto himself also entered a Version 2 state; when the larger manifestation later vanished, Naruto's own chakra cloak briefly took on its appearance, with seven tails and Kurama's bones visible inside of it.<ref name="ep295">''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 295</ref>
== Partial Transformation ==
[[File:8 tails.PNG|thumb|Naruto's partial transformation with eight tails.]]
As Kurama fought Pain through the six-tailed form, Naruto, within his subconscious, thought of Pain's plans for peace, and pleaded for someone to help him with a response. Through his suffering, Kurama tempted Naruto to entrust his heart to it so that it could destroy everything that was causing Naruto pain, thus distorting the seal and allowing him to go from the six-tailed form to the eight-tailed form.<ref name="ch439">''Naruto'' chapter 439, pages 10-13</ref>
The size of this form was much like Kurama's, with muscle and tissue forming around the enlarged skeleton that is seen in the seven-tailed form. Though Kurama lacks its ninth tail, flesh, and fur, the tailed beast is powerful enough to break through Pain's [[Chibaku Tensei]] with brute force.<ref name="ch439"/> In the anime, for the brief time it was unleashed, it breathed a [[Nine-Tails Fire Breath|large stream of fire]], which burned through the debris of the Chibaku Tensei, making it look like a meteor shower falling down toward the earth.<ref name="ep167"/>
After obtaining his Tailed Beast Mode transformation, his partial transformations have changed to reflect the unique nature of the form. He can manifest Kurama's arms, head and tails to attack or defend from just the cloak.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 598, pages 1-6</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 600, pages 14-15</ref> He could also form a full [[Tailed Beast Ball]] with just Kurama's head formed.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 598, pages 11-13</ref>
== Full Nine-Tails Form ==
[[File:Chibi Kyubi.png|thumb|left|Naruto's first attempt to attain the full Nine-Tails form.]]
At first, Naruto couldn't fully transform into his tailed beast when using the full extent of Kurama's chakra. This was due to the hostility that had existed between Naruto and the fox. When he attempted to transform into his full Nine-Tails form, he instead transforms into a miniature, comical version of Kurama. It was also shown that Naruto cannot maintain this form for very long, as it drains him of its chakra significantly.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 519, pages 7-9</ref>
== Nine-Tails Chakra Mode ==
[[File:Kyubi Chakra Mode.png|thumb|Naruto's Nine-Tails Chakra Mode.]]
The {{Translation|'''Nine-Tails Chakra Mode'''|九尾チャクラモード|Kyūbi Chakura Mōdo}}<ref name="ch538">''Naruto'' chapter 538, page 1</ref> is a form that Naruto gained after he separated and [[Torii Seal|sealed]] Kurama from its chakra. He can access its chakra directly whenever he needs it without interacting with the beast at all. In doing so, he gains a chakra shroud that resembles the [[Sage of the Six Paths]]' silhouette. The colour of his eyes changes from blue to orange when he is in this form and while the demon fox shroud is red and releases chakra as acidic bubbles, this form's shroud is yellow and releases chakra as flickering flames.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 499, pages 12-15</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 505, page 7</ref>
With Kurama's power under his control, Naruto's strength is significantly increased to the point where he can push a fully formed [[Tailed Beast Ball]] through a [[Thirty-Six Layer Self-Repairing Barrier|multiple layered barrier]] with one arm,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 536, pages 8-11</ref> and could also neutralise [[White Zetsu]] with a single kick despite their durability.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 545, page 11</ref> In this form, Naruto's speed also increases to the point where [[Killer B]] had trouble determining if he had used the [[Body Flicker Technique]] when attacking [[Kisame]],<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 505, page 12</ref> and could even surpass the speed of a [[Lightning Release Armour|fully charged]] [[A]], who was noted to be the fastest shinobi in the world since [[Minato]]'s death.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 544, page 11-12</ref> Though he can still feel pain, this form's chakra shroud gives Naruto a great amount of protection; regular swords are unable to pierce it, [[Lava Release Armour|extreme heat temperatures]] slightly burn him,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 558, pages 19-20</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 565, pages 11-12</ref> and [[Steam Armour|extreme physical attacks]] do little damage.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 541, pages 6-7</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 565, page 13</ref>
The shroud's [[chakra arms]] gives Naruto greater range of attacks as well as greater dexterity and manoeuvrability to his fighting style without the use of shadow clones. The strength of the chakra arms are so great that when first using them, Naruto was able to crush stone without even trying.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 515, page 8</ref> He is also able to use the chakra arms to push himself off a platform<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 553, pages 2-3</ref> and to extend his reach,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 553, pages 3-5</ref> where he would otherwise create a shadow clone to use as a landing point in mid-air.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 420, pages 3-4</ref> or to propel him through the air.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 442, pages 16-17</ref> Naruto has also used the chakra arms to help him create his [[Rasengan]] and could even use [[Twin Rasengan|two Rasengan]] at the same time.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 594, page 20</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 567, page 11</ref> He has also used the chakra arms to create new Rasengan variants, such as the [[Spiralling Strife Spheres]], [[Spiralling Absorption Sphere]] and the [[Planetary Rasengan]]. He can also create and throw his [[Wind Release: Rasenshuriken]] in this form by using the chakra arms in place of his shadow clones to create it. Using his chakra arms, he can guide the Rasenshuriken towards the enemy, allowing him to redirect it back at them, should the initial attack fail.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 554, pages 1-3</ref> He can also create a [[Mini-Rasenshuriken|miniature Rasenshuriken]] with just his index finger and two small chakra arms. When he mastered the [[Tailed Beast Ball]] in Tailed Beast Mode, Naruto later developed a miniature version of the technique in Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, the [[Super Mini-Tailed Beast Ball]], which he launches at the target by using a single chakra arm, creating a very powerful explosion upon impact.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 595, pages 6-14</ref> The power of his techniques have become so great that, unless they already have some inherent durability, such as the [[Third Raikage]], [[Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation|reincarnated]] ninja have a hard time regenerating.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 558, page 1</ref>
Like his predecessor, [[Mito Uzumaki]], Naruto also gains Kurama's ability to [[Negative Emotions Sensing|sense negative emotions]], something that not even the best [[sensor]]-type ninja can do.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 505, pages 9-10</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 534, pages 13-14</ref> In addition, he is capable of sensing Kurama's chakra signature, even while he was inside a [[Tailed Beast Temple|chakra isolation chamber]] within the [[Falls of Truth]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 529, page 1</ref> Due to having Kurama's [[Yang]] chakra in this form, [[Wood Release]] techniques will react to the chakra's life-giving properties and mature into full-grown trees within a matter of seconds, either by contact or close range.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 370, pages 12-13</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 505, page 8</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 545, page 14</ref>
[[File:NTCM Risks.png|thumb|left|The risks involved in the usage of Nine-Tails Chakra Mode.]]
However, using the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode was a huge risk as Naruto had to temporarily "shelve" his own chakra in order to use Kurama's, which allowed the fox to automatically drain Naruto's own chakra. If Kurama managed to take all of Naruto's chakra, Naruto would die. In addition, [[Gyūki]] advised him against the use of the [[Shadow Clone Technique]], as Kurama would absorb every portion of Naruto's chakra even faster for each clone he made. Moreover, Naruto also had to be careful about the amount of time he spent in this mode as Gyūki stated that there was a limit to how much chakra Naruto managed to pull away from Kurama, implying that the converted chakra would eventually run out.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 519, pages 10-11</ref> Despite these risks however, once Naruto was on the battlefield, he deployed several of his shadow clones while in this mode to the different divisions to confront the enemy [[White Zetsu Army]],<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 545, page 17</ref> and was further able to stay in this form for an entire night, and most of the following morning during the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]], because — as Gyūki noted — at some point Kurama had purposely stopped taking Naruto's chakra.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 567, pages 16-17</ref> However, due to Naruto and Kurama's recently developed comradery, this weakness is no longer an issue.
[[File:Incomplete Nine-Tails Chakra Mode.png|thumb|Naruto's incomplete Nine-Tails Chakra Mode.]]
In the Chikara Arc, despite the fact that Naruto had not yet subjugated the Nine-Tails' power, motivated by the [[Tonika Village]] orphans' plea to save [[Dokku]] and [[Shiseru]], Naruto temporarily assumed an incomplete version of the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode after breaking free from Kurama's influence. During his brief time in the form, Naruto was able to form an incomplete [[Tailed Beast Rasengan]] as well.<ref name="ep295"/>
== Tailed Beast Mode ==
[[File:Naruto's new cloak.png|thumb|left|Naruto's shroud in Tailed Beast Mode.]]
By melding Kurama's unrestrained chakra together with his own while in Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, Naruto is able to enter {{Translation|'''Tailed Beast Mode'''|尾獣モード|Bijū Mōdo}}, with his shroud undergoing a drastic change. The shroud itself parts down the middle and opens into a full-length coat (haori), revealing a black undergarment with magatama near his neck, whilst his seal's numerous swirl-patterns, which were located all over his body, open out into complete, dark, circles. Naruto also gains slit pupils, not unlike those of his first tailed beast transformations, and his whisker-markings become much thicker.
While in this form, his speed and strength are enhanced greatly to such an extent that he was able to deflect five [[Tailed Beast Ball]]s by simply moving past them.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 571, pages 4-5</ref> With the help of a [[shadow clone]], he could even move fast enough to two different locations of a battlefield at the same time.<ref name="ch608">''Naruto'' chapter 608, pages 12-13</ref> He is also capable of using the [[Rasengan]], and the [[Super Mini-Tailed Beast Ball]] with a single hand in this form.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 598, page 11</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 601, page 13</ref> He could even use [[Twin Rasenshuriken|two Rasenshuriken]] in both of his hands at the same time.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 617, pages 10-14</ref>
This form also allows Naruto to transform into a replica of Kurama as well as manifest parts of the beast's body, such as its head, tails, or arms. However, rather than becoming a true flesh-replica of the fox, Naruto's enhanced chakra shroud instead enlarges into a tailed beast-cloak that recreates Kurama's overall form, while retaining the exact same [[Torii Seal|seal]] that was previously present on Naruto's body. As opposed to the normal nature of the chakra, it no longer burns those who touch it, and is also translucent, as Naruto can be seen inside the replica's head throughout the transformation.<ref name="ch571">''Naruto'' chapter 571, pages 8-10</ref>
[[File:Naruto transforms into Kurama.png|thumb|Naruto's Tailed Beast Mode.]]
This form gives Naruto the ability to use the full extent of [[Kurama]]'s considerable powers. In this state, Naruto can release a [[Tailed Beast Shockwave|powerful shock-wave]] that is strong enough to knock back five fully transformed [[tailed beasts]] at once.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 571, pages 5-6</ref> Like most other [[jinchūriki]] who can transform into their tailed beasts, Naruto is able to use the [[Tailed Beast Ball]] and was even able to create one equalling the size and power of that collaboratively formed by five other tailed beasts,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 571, pages 16-17</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 572, pages 2-3</ref> as well as fire them [[Continuous Tailed Beast Balls|continuously]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 610, page 12</ref> Naruto can also use this form's tail-like [[chakra arms]] to grab five tailed beasts at once.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 572, page 4</ref> Naruto is still capable of using his original techniques while in this form, such as the [[Shadow Clone Technique]]. While in Tailed Beast Mode, Naruto has demonstrated the ability to create shadow clones of himself in his regular form, which can then enter [[Sage Mode]], as well as both Nine-Tails Chakra Mode and Tailed Beast Mode all by themselves, although only the original body has demonstrated the ability to fully transform into Kurama.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 571, page 5</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 572, page 4</ref><ref>''Naruto'', chapter 600, pages 14-17</ref><ref name="ch608"></ref>
Seemingly, the only flaw to this transformation is that the length of time it can be maintained is dependent upon the link between Naruto and Kurama, with Kurama noting that they could only keep the form for five minutes during their first transformation due to the fact that they had not yet developed a perfect bond.<ref name="ch571"/> The amount of time they can consecutively maintain the form increases as the two continue to work together, extending the duration to eight minutes by the time of the [[Ten-Tails]]' revival.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 611, page 6</ref>
After Kurama had generated more chakra and gave it to Naruto, the chakra was sensed all the way in [[Konohagakure]] by [[Sasuke Uchiha]], [[Suigetsu Hōzuki]], [[Jūgo]], and [[Orochimaru]] — none of which, as Orochimaru noted were [[sensors]]. The shinobi which Naruto [[Chakra Transfer Technique|transferred]] this chakra over to manifested a tailless "Version 1" cloak along which came a tremendous bolster to their techniques such that [[Hinata Hyūga]] was able to use a simple [[Eight Trigrams Vacuum Palm]] technique to deflect one of the [[Ten-Tails]]' attacks. [[Chōji Akimichi]] upon receiving the chakra, automatically regained the weight he had lost as his body naturally converted the chakra to calories. The binding on [[Ino Yamanaka]]'s [[Mind Body Switch Technique]] was also bolstered as [[Obito Uchiha]] seemed unable to break the technique. The binding on [[Shikamaru Nara]]'s [[Shadow Imitation Technique]] was also strengthened to the point that it could restrain the Ten-Tails.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 616</ref>
[[File:Incomplete Tailed Beast Mode.png|thumb|left|Naruto's imperfect Tailed Beast Mode.]]
In the Chikara Arc, Kurama willingly gave Naruto more power when he was at risk of being killed by his [[Nine-Tailed Naruto Clone|clone]]. Naruto was able to overcome the influence of Kurama's will and enter an imperfect version of the Tailed Beast Mode, in which his seal spread over his body, forming unique markings. Much like Tailed Beast Mode, Naruto's chakra manifested into a replica of Kurama, although it lacked legs and possessed only six tails. In addition to the shroud's tails, Naruto was capable of forming chakra arms to bind his opponents while in this state. Naruto was unable to maintain this form for long as he soon succumbed to Kurama's will and instead entered a seven-tailed Version 2 form.<ref name="ep295"/>
