<section begin=summary/>'''Nine-Tails Chakra Mode'''<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 538, page 1</ref> is a heightened [[Jinchūriki Forms|transformation]] unique to those with the [[Nine-Tails]]' chakra sealed into them. [[Naruto Uzumaki]], as the Nine-Tails' [[jinchūriki]], is able to enter the form using the beast's [[Yang]] chakra. [[Minato Namikaze]], having sealed the beast's [[Yin]] chakra into his body immediately before his death, has been able to access the form once [[Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation|reincarnated]].<section end=summary/>

While this mode is active, the user gains a chakra shroud with six [[magatama]] markings around their neck, two distinctive horns resembling the [[Sage of the Six Paths]]' silhouette, swirl designs similar to the [[Uzumaki clan]]'s symbol, and various other lines extending along their body. Minato's shroud had six additional magatama markings around the collar of his mantle as well as patterns extending from his sleeves to the palms of his hands, the latter of which can also appear on Naruto's shroud at times.<ref name="ch628">Chapter 628</ref>
While this mode is active, Naruto gains a chakra shroud with six [[wikipedia:magatama|magatama]] around his neck and two distinctive pieces of hair-like horns resembling the [[Sage of the Six Paths]]' silhouette along with a swirl design that resembles the [[Uzumaki clan]]'s symbol. Naruto's chakra shroud is also covered by various other black lines and spiral patterns, which expand further along his body in certain situations.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 520, page 1</ref> At times, Naruto's shroud gains the additional seals that appear on his hands while in Tailed Beast Mode.<ref name="ch628">''Naruto'' chapter 628</ref> 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 name="c505">''Naruto'' chapter 505</ref> While in this form Naruto's chakra signature and smell are different as noted by [[Neji]] and [[Kiba]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 559, page 4</ref>
 
   
When used by Minato, this mode holds resemblance to something in between both of Naruto's two shrouds; while predominately looking like Naruto's Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, Minato's shroud has additional seals on his hands and feet as well an additional magatama design that appears on his collar, causing it to resemble Naruto's shroud in Tailed Beast Mode. When Minato first entered this mode, the bangs at the sides of his face went upwards as well.<ref name="ch631">''Naruto'' chapter 631</ref>
+
The user's eyes become orange when in this mode and whereas the [[Version 1|demon fox cloak]] is red and releases chakra as boiling bubbles, this form's shroud is yellow and releases chakra as flickering flames.<ref>Chapter 499, pages 12-15</ref><ref name="c505">Chapter 505</ref> While in this form, Naruto's chakra signature and smell are different, as noted by [[Neji Hyūga]] and [[Kiba Inuzuka]] respectively.<ref>Chapter 559, page 4</ref> In the anime, a slight dark aura is seen covering Minato's chakra cloak.<ref>''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 374</ref>

Two years later, with both halves of Kurama now sealed as a whole inside him, Naruto's appearance in this form changed again. His chakra mode's markings now has a more simplistic design with thicker lines, two of which wrap around his collar above the six magatama. His centre also has a single dot with a partial circle around it opening at the top and six lines stretching out from it; two of which spread down his legs where the part and wrap around his feet. The other two lines wrap around his waist that connect behind him next to a circle on the centre of his back.<ref name="TheLast">''The Last: Naruto the Movie''</ref>
As with all jinchūriki transformations, the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode gives the user increased strength, speed, and defences. Nine-Tails Chakra Mode's increases are noticeably superior: Naruto becomes strong enough to push a fully formed [[Tailed Beast Ball]] through a [[Thirty-Six Layer Self-Repairing Barrier|multiple layered barrier]] with just one arm,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 536, pages 8-11</ref> neutralise [[White Zetsu]] with a single kick despite their durability,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 545, page 11</ref> and, in collaboration with B in his [[Tailed Beast Mode|full Eight-Tails form]], he could also knock down Tobi's [[Demonic Statue of the Outer Path]] with an uppercut.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 592, page 7</ref> Naruto's speed is so great in this form that [[Killer B]] even had trouble determining if he had used the [[Body Flicker Technique]] when attacking [[Kisame]],<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 505, page 12</ref> he could even surpass the speed of a [[Lightning Release Armour|fully charged]] [[A]],<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 544, page 11-12</ref> as well as blitz the extremely fast Third Raikage before the shinobi had any chance to react.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 554, page 4</ref> Naruto's durability is also very high in this form, so high in fact, that he was able to endure [[Lava Release Armour|extreme heat]] with only minor burns.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 565, pages 11-12</ref> He could even withstand the [[Tenpenchii]] technique in this form and while the shroud was completely destroyed after this, he only suffered minor physical wounds.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 629, page 4</ref>
 
   
Naruto is able to use [[chakra arms]] while in Nine-Tails Chakra Mode. Like other jinchūriki he can use the arms to improve his dexterity and manoeuvrability, granting him increased means of interacting with his environment and his opponents. More unique to Naruto, he uses the arms as substitutes for [[shadow clone]]s in his creation of various [[Rasengan]]-variants. Instead of needing a shadow clone to help him with [[shape transformation]], he can do both with just one hand, either his own or the hands of his chakra arms.<ref name="c567">''Naruto'' chapter 567</ref> He still needs more than one hand for the [[nature transformation]] of the [[Rasenshuriken]], but this also is accomplished without shadow clones. Once the Rasengan-variants are formed, Naruto can then use the chakra arms to deliver them across long distances or, in the case of Rasenshuriken, guide them to their target.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 554, page 1</ref> Initially, Naruto tried to create a technique related to the Tailed Beast Ball: the [[Tailed Beast Rasengan]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 520, pages 1-5</ref> However, he later develops a more effective version of this technique: the [[Super Mini-Tailed Beast Ball]], which is basically a miniature Tailed Beast Ball that he's able to control with the help of a shadow clone.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 595, pages 4-6</ref>
+
Years later as the Seventh Hokage, Naruto's Chakra Mode changes again. Similar to his Kurama Mode from during the war, his upper body gains an inverted colour-scheme where his shirt turns dark while the lines turn bright, along with the circle on his abdomen being full. His cape also gains similar circle marking around the shoulder area. He also regains the markings on the back of his hands.<ref>Chapter 700+4, pages 4-7</ref> His six magatama around his collar also seem to be missing.
   
Like his predecessor, [[Mito Uzumaki]], Naruto 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 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> as well as the ability to sense other chakra signatures from great distances.<ref name="ch631"/> 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 name="c505"/><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 545, page 14</ref>

[[File:NTCM Risks.png|thumb|left|The risks involved in the usage of Nine-Tails Chakra Mode.]]
+
== Attributes ==
Using Nine-Tails Chakra Mode was initially a 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. If Kurama managed to take all of Naruto's chakra, Naruto would die. Shadow clones provided an additional risk, 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 there was a limit to how much chakra Naruto managed to pull away from Kurama.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 519, pages 10-11</ref> Despite these risks, once involving himself in the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]], Naruto deployed several shadow clones while he was in this mode and even managed to remain in the form for an entire night. The [[Eight-Tails]] says this is because at some point Kurama had purposely stopped taking Naruto's chakra.<ref name="c567"/> After Naruto forms a friendship with Kurama these handicaps no longer apply.
+
The Nine-Tails Chakra Mode grants the user enhanced speed, strength, and durability. Naruto becomes strong enough to neutralise [[White Zetsu Army|White Zetsu]] with a single kick,<ref>Chapter 545, page 11</ref> and knock down the [[Demonic Statue of the Outer Path]] with an uppercut in conjunction with [[Killer B]].<ref>Chapter 592, page 7</ref> Naruto's speed is enhanced to the point that he could dodge the [[Fourth Raikage]] using his [[Lightning Release: Body Flicker Technique]];<ref>Chapter 544, page 11-12</ref> B compared Naruto's own usage of the Body Flicker Technique to the [[Yellow Flash]].<ref>Chapter 505, page 12</ref> Naruto's durability is also high enough to withstand [[Lava Release Chakra Mode|extreme heat]] and [[Erupting Strong Foot|steam-powered physical attacks]] with only minor injuries,<ref>Chapter 565, pages 11-13</ref> and to endure the [[Ten-Tails]]' [[Tenpenchii]], albeit losing his shroud in the process.<ref>Chapter 629, page 4</ref>
  +
  +
While in this form the user can produce [[chakra arms]] to interact with their environment or as a means of increasing their manoeuvreability. Naruto initially used the chakra arms as substitutes for [[shadow clone]]s when forming the [[Rasengan]] and its variants, using a single arm to perform the technique's [[shape transformation]],<ref>Chapter 567, page 13</ref> and two arms to accomplish the shape and [[nature transformation]] of the [[Rasenshuriken]], which he is able to throw while in this mode.<ref>Chapter 551, pages 13-15</ref> Naruto could also make use of chakra arms to guide his Rasenshuriken to its target.<ref>Chapter 554, page 1</ref> Unable to perform the [[Tailed Beast Ball]] without Kurama's cooperation, Naruto initially attempted to create the [[Tailed Beast Rasengan]] as a substitute,<ref>Chapter 520, pages 1-5</ref> but ultimately developed the [[Super Mini-Tailed Beast Ball]] instead.<ref>Chapter 595, pages 4-6</ref>
  +
  +
Like his predecessor, [[Mito Uzumaki]], Naruto gains Kurama's ability to [[Negative Emotions Sensing|sense negative emotions]],<ref>Chapter 534, pages 13-14</ref> and can also sense chakra across great distances.<ref>Chapter 631</ref> He is capable of sensing Kurama's chakra signature even while inside a [[Tailed Beast Temple|chakra isolation chamber]].<ref>Chapter 529, page 1</ref> Naruto's immense life force while in this form causes [[Wood Release]] techniques to quickly mature into full-grown trees through close proximity,<ref name="c505"/> and White Zetsu to transform into trees upon contact.<ref>Chapter 545, page 14</ref>

[[File:NTCM Risks.png|thumb|right|The initial risk of Naruto using Nine-Tails Chakra Mode.]]
  +
Using Nine-Tails Chakra Mode was initially a risk to Naruto as he had to temporarily "shelve" his own chakra in order to access the chakra he removed from Kurama, during which time the fox could drain Naruto's own chakra, potentially resulting in his death. Shadow clones provided an additional risk, as Kurama could absorb chakra from each clone he made simultaneously. Moreover, Naruto also had to be mindful of how long he spent in this mode as there was a limit to the chakra he managed to pull away from Kurama.<ref>Chapter 519, pages 10-11</ref> Despite these risks, Naruto eventually deployed a large number of shadow clones and still managed to maintain this form for an entire night. [[Gyūki]] attributed this to the fact that Kurama had willingly stopped taking Naruto's chakra.<ref>Chapter 567, page 18</ref> When Kurama later accepted Naruto's friendship, the two combined their chakra and these limitations no longer applied.<ref>Chapter 570, page 10-15</ref>

=== Kurama Mode ===
  +
[[File:Naruto TailedBeast Mode.png|thumb|left|Naruto's shroud in Kurama Mode.]]
  +
By synchronising his heart with Kurama's, Naruto is able to enter the complete version of Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, referred to as {{translation|'''Kurama Mode'''|九喇嘛モード|Kurama Mōdo}}.<ref name="d4">Fourth Databook, page 250</ref> In this form, Naruto's shroud parts down the middle and opens up into a full-length haori, revealing a black undergarment with three magatama on each side of his high collar. The shroud's numerous swirl patterns become complete, black circles, and the whisker-like markings on his face become thicker. In Kurama Mode, Naruto has access to the most powerful secret abilities of a jinchūriki, including the [[Tailed Beast Ball]] and [[Tailed Beast Transformation]].<ref name="d4"/>
  +
  +
[[File:Naruto's Partial Transformation.png|thumb|right|Naruto's partial transformation in Kurama Mode.]]
  +
Naruto's speed and strength are once more increased in this form, to the point where he was able to deflect five Tailed Beast Balls by simply moving past them at high speed.<ref name="ch571"/> He is also able to perform [[Jinchūriki Forms#Partial Transformation|partial transformations]] in this form, producing only Kurama's head, arms or tails as needed.<ref>Chapter 598, pages 1-2, 6</ref><ref>Chapter 600, pages 14-16</ref> Naruto is able to [[Chakra Transfer Technique|transfer]] his and Kurama's chakra to others, granting them tailless [[Version 1]]-like chakra shrouds that greatly enhance their techniques: [[Hinata Hyūga]], for example, was able to deflect one of the Ten-Tails' tails with a single [[Eight Trigrams Vacuum Palm]].<ref>Chapter 616, pages 10-11</ref> [[Kakashi Hatake]] stated that the power and volume of the transferred chakra was even greater than when Kurama had directly handed chakra to him, which had improved his [[Kamui]] at least three-fold.<ref>Chapter 617, pages 3-4</ref> Despite Kurama's contribution, [[C]] claimed the transferred chakra more closely resembles Naruto's own.<ref>Chapter 616, page 6</ref>

{{Main|Tailed Beast Mode}}
All jinchūriki can enter [[Tailed Beast Mode]], which grants them all the strength and abilities of their corresponding tailed beast. However, where other jinchūriki become full-scale replicas of their tailed beast, Naruto and Minato enter a form very visually similar to the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode. For Naruto, The shroud parts down the middle and opens up into a full-length cloak (haori), revealing a black undergarment with three [[wikipedia:magatama|magatama]] on each side of his high collar. His seal's numerous swirl-patterns, which were located all over his body, open out into complete, dark circles. His eyes become red and slitted and his whisker-markings become much thicker, as they do in his early transformations.
+
[[File:Naruto and Minato TBM.png|thumb|left|Naruto and Minato in Tailed Beast Mode, with the former using Sage Mode as well.]]
  +
Like other jinchūriki, Naruto and Minato are able to manifest their tailed beast's body, but rather than physically becoming the beast as other jinchūriki do, their chakra instead forms a translucent construct of Kurama — Naruto's being the same colour as his shroud and Minato's being a darker shade of yellow — and the markings on their backs trail off into a pattern resembling a skeletal structure.<ref name="ch571">Chapter 571</ref> Whereas Naruto originally had to enter Kurama Mode before manifesting Kurama, Minato does so without entering an additional form.<ref>Chapter 645, pages 6-9</ref> Similarly, after both halves of Kurama are sealed inside him, Naruto no longer enters Kurama Mode when manifesting the Nine-Tails.<ref name="TheLast"/> Both jinchūriki's eyes become slitted when entering this form.<ref>Chapter 645, pages 1, 6</ref>
   
Naruto's speed and strength are once more increased in this form, to the point that he was able to deflect five [[Tailed Beast Ball]]s by simply moving past them.<ref name="ch571"/> His ability to perform the Rasengan without a shadow clone remains. Additionally, he can transfer the Nine-Tails's chakra to others, granting them [[Version 1]]-like chakra shrouds that greatly increase the power of their techniques: [[Hinata Hyūga]] for example, was able to deflect one of the [[Ten-Tails]]' tail arms to the opposite side of the battlefield with a single [[Eight Trigrams Vacuum Palm]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 616, pages 10-11</ref> [[Kakashi Hatake]] estimated the transfer to be even greater than when [[Kurama]] performed it with him, which increased his [[Kamui]] three-fold.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 617, pages 3-4</ref> Naruto can remotely control each individual shroud, such as forming tails for his allies to deflect incoming projectiles.<ref name="ch628"/> Despite the Nine-Tails' contributions, the chakra produced more closely resembles Naruto's than just Kurama's as noted by [[C]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 616, page 6</ref>
+
Kurama is able to control and speak through the construct without taking over its jinchūriki's body,<ref>Chapter 610, page 8</ref> and the jinchūriki can allow others to enter its body, where they can be healed and reinvigorated by its chakra.<ref>Chapter 610, page 8</ref> They are also able to transform Kurama's tails into chakra arms to interact with other large targets,<ref>Chapter 572</ref> and retain the ability to perform their regular techniques, such as the [[Shadow Clone Technique]] or a [[Parent and Child Rasengan|larger-scale Rasengan]].<ref>Chapter 645, page 7</ref> Naruto initially couldn't maintain Tailed Beast Mode indefinitely because he and Kurama had not yet formed a perfect bond. At first they could only last for five minutes,<ref name="ch571"/> but they extended the time to eight minutes by the time of the Ten-Tails' revival.<ref>Chapter 611, page 6</ref> Naruto later increases his Tailed Beast Mode to an unspecified time limit during his subsequent transformations. In his final battle with [[Toneri Ōtsutsuki]], Naruto demonstrated the ability to manifest Kurama outside of his body, allowing the two to fight independently while both are still able to access their respective Chakra Modes.<ref name="TheLast"/>

[[File:Minato and Naruto TBM.png|thumb|left|Naruto and Minato in Tailed Beast Mode.]]
+
== Senjutsu Influence ==
Naruto and Minato are able to become a full-scale replica of Kurama. However in both their cases, their Tailed Beast Modes are more energy-based, rather than being a full flesh manifestation. The Nine-Tails Chakra Mode enlarges into a tailed beast-cloak that recreates Kurama's overall form, while retaining the exact same seals that were previously present on Naruto and Minato's bodies. Both jinchūriki's eyes become slitted when entering this form.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 645, page 1</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 645, page 6</ref> As opposed to the normal nature of the chakra, it no longer burns those who touch it. It is also translucent, as Naruto and his father can be seen inside the replica's head for the duration of the transformation.<ref name="ch571">''Naruto'' chapter 571</ref><ref name="ch645">''Naruto'' chapter 645, page 7</ref> Appearance aside, both jinchiriki gain the usual advantages of Tailed Beast Mode, notably the ability to create [[Tailed Beast Shockwave|powerful shock-waves]] and perform [[Tailed Beast Ball]]s. As only shown with Naruto, he can even use the tails of this form as arms to interact with other large targets. As only shown with Minato, he can use the Tailed Beast Mode mantle as a medium for the Rasengan.<ref name="ch645">''Naruto'' chapter 645, page 7</ref> Uniquely to Naruto, he can still perform his usual techniques while in this form, such as making shadow clones.
+
[[File:TBM combines with SM.png|thumb|right|Naruto's combination of Kurama Mode and Sage Mode.]]
  +
Naruto can combine his Nine-Tails Chakra Mode and its various forms with [[Sage Mode]] to further enhance his abilities with the power of [[senjutsu]].<ref>Chapter 645, page 8</ref> In this state, Naruto was able to create a [[Tailed Beast Ball#Senjutsu Influence|senjutsu-enhanced Tailed Beast Ball]],<ref>Chapter 645, page 10</ref> as well as add senjutsu chakra to Minato's Rasengan.<ref>Chapter 645, page 8</ref> The eye markings of Sage Mode also reflect on the manifestation of Kurama formed in Tailed Beast Mode, and as Naruto noted, he is able to absorb [[natural energy]] more quickly than usual while in Kurama Mode.<ref>Chapter 645, pages 6-7</ref>
   
[[File:Naruto's SM&BM.png|thumb|right|Naruto's combination of Tailed Beast Mode and Sage Mode.]]
+
Two years after the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]], Naruto utilised his senjutsu-enhanced form against Toneri Ōtsutsuki and showed numerous improvements. His power had improved to the point that he could easily shatter Toneri's [[Truth-Seeking Ball|defences]] and overpower the [[Golden Wheel Reincarnation Explosion]], which was capable of cutting the [[moon]] in half. Naruto seemingly demonstrated the ability to achieve flight without relying on the [[Six Paths Senjutsu]], and could partition all of the power of this transformation into a single part of his body for [[Chakra Enhanced Strength|enhanced strength]].<ref name="TheLast"/>
Naruto cannot maintain Tailed Beast Mode indefinitely because he and Kurama have not yet formed a perfect bond. They are improving: at first they could only last for five minutes,<ref name="ch571"/> but by the time of the [[Ten-Tails]]' revival they extend it to eight minutes.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 611, page 6</ref>
+
{{-}}
   
Upon being given permission by [[Kurama]], Naruto can now combine Tailed Beast Mode and [[Sage Mode]] to greatly enhance his abilities, even infusing [[natural energy]] into the Tailed Beast Ball to make it stronger.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 645, page 08</ref>

=== Six Paths Sage Mode ===
  +
{{Main|Six Paths Sage Mode}}
  +
[[File:Rikudō Sennin Mōdo.png|thumb|left|Naruto's shroud in Six Paths Sage Mode.]]
  +
With the [[Six Paths Chakra|power]] given to him by [[Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki]], Naruto is able to enter a form known as [[Six Paths Sage Mode]], in which his [[Sage Mode]] loses the orange pigmentation around his eyes. Using the chakra of the Tailed Beasts, he dons a shroud that once again forms into a yellow coat with a black bodysuit underneath, but his skin is no longer covered by the chakra.<ref>[[Naruto and the Sage of the Six Paths…!! (volume)|Volume 70]] cover</ref> The bodysuit covers his torso, reaches down his arms to his knuckles, and down his legs to the point just above his sandals. He gains a pattern of six magatama around his collar and the usual marking of the Six Paths Senjutsu, composed of the [[Rinnegan]] above nine magatama, on his back. In this state, Naruto is able to fly and manifest nine [[Truth-Seeking Ball]]s.<ref>Chapter 673, pages 14-17</ref><ref>Chapter 680, page 12</ref>
  +
  +
[[File:Naruto's_Battle_Avatar.png|thumb|Naruto's conjoint Tailed Beast Mode with three heads and six arms.]]
  +
Naruto retains the ability to manifest Kurama's senjutsu-enhanced construct,<ref name="c695">Chapter 695, page 5</ref> whose might rivals [[Sasuke Uchiha]]'s [[Complete Body — Susanoo]], being able to deflect its sword slashes with a single tail and clash with it fist to fist.<ref>Chapter 695</ref> Through the use of shadow clones, Naruto has shown the ability to combine three Kurama avatars into a single construct with three heads and six arms, which greatly resembles his ancestor [[Asura Ōtsutsuki]]'s own chakra avatar.<ref>Chapter 670, page 17</ref><ref>Chapter 696, page 15</ref>
  +
  +
Years later as the Seventh Hokage, Naruto used his Six Paths Chakra in conjunction with his [[Kurama Mode]].<ref>Chapter 700+4, pages 4-7</ref>

Users

The Nine-Tails Chakra Mode is a heightened transformation unique to jinchūriki of the Nine-Tails.

Appearance Edit

While this mode is active, the user gains a chakra shroud with six magatama markings around their neck, two distinctive horns resembling the Sage of the Six Paths' silhouette, swirl designs similar to the Uzumaki clan's symbol, and various other lines extending along their body. Minato's shroud had six additional magatama markings around the collar of his mantle as well as patterns extending from his sleeves to the palms of his hands, the latter of which can also appear on Naruto's shroud at times.[4]

The user's eyes become orange when in this mode and whereas the demon fox cloak is red and releases chakra as boiling bubbles, this form's shroud is yellow and releases chakra as flickering flames.[5][6] While in this form, Naruto's chakra signature and smell are different, as noted by Neji Hyūga and Kiba Inuzuka respectively.[7] In the anime, a slight dark aura is seen covering Minato's chakra cloak.[8]

Two years later, with both halves of Kurama now sealed as a whole inside him, Naruto's appearance in this form changed again. His chakra mode's markings now has a more simplistic design with thicker lines, two of which wrap around his collar above the six magatama. His centre also has a single dot with a partial circle around it opening at the top and six lines stretching out from it; two of which spread down his legs where the part and wrap around his feet. The other two lines wrap around his waist that connect behind him next to a circle on the centre of his back.[9]

Years later as the Seventh Hokage, Naruto's Chakra Mode changes again. Similar to his Kurama Mode from during the war, his upper body gains an inverted colour-scheme where his shirt turns dark while the lines turn bright, along with the circle on his abdomen being full. His cape also gains similar circle marking around the shoulder area. He also regains the markings on the back of his hands.[10] His six magatama around his collar also seem to be missing.

Attributes Edit

The Nine-Tails Chakra Mode grants the user enhanced speed, strength, and durability. Naruto becomes strong enough to neutralise White Zetsu with a single kick,[11] and knock down the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path with an uppercut in conjunction with Killer B.[12] Naruto's speed is enhanced to the point that he could dodge the Fourth Raikage using his Lightning Release: Body Flicker Technique;[13] B compared Naruto's own usage of the Body Flicker Technique to the Yellow Flash.[14] Naruto's durability is also high enough to withstand extreme heat and steam-powered physical attacks with only minor injuries,[15] and to endure the Ten-Tails' Tenpenchii, albeit losing his shroud in the process.[16]

While in this form the user can produce chakra arms to interact with their environment or as a means of increasing their manoeuvreability. Naruto initially used the chakra arms as substitutes for shadow clones when forming the Rasengan and its variants, using a single arm to perform the technique's shape transformation,[17] and two arms to accomplish the shape and nature transformation of the Rasenshuriken, which he is able to throw while in this mode.[18] Naruto could also make use of chakra arms to guide his Rasenshuriken to its target.[19] Unable to perform the Tailed Beast Ball without Kurama's cooperation, Naruto initially attempted to create the Tailed Beast Rasengan as a substitute,[20] but ultimately developed the Super Mini-Tailed Beast Ball instead.[21]

Like his predecessor, Mito Uzumaki, Naruto gains Kurama's ability to sense negative emotions,[22] and can also sense chakra across great distances.[23] He is capable of sensing Kurama's chakra signature even while inside a chakra isolation chamber.[24] Naruto's immense life force while in this form causes Wood Release techniques to quickly mature into full-grown trees through close proximity,[6] and White Zetsu to transform into trees upon contact.[25]

NTCM Risks

The initial risk of Naruto using Nine-Tails Chakra Mode.

Using Nine-Tails Chakra Mode was initially a risk to Naruto as he had to temporarily "shelve" his own chakra in order to access the chakra he removed from Kurama, during which time the fox could drain Naruto's own chakra, potentially resulting in his death. Shadow clones provided an additional risk, as Kurama could absorb chakra from each clone he made simultaneously. Moreover, Naruto also had to be mindful of how long he spent in this mode as there was a limit to the chakra he managed to pull away from Kurama.[26] Despite these risks, Naruto eventually deployed a large number of shadow clones and still managed to maintain this form for an entire night. Gyūki attributed this to the fact that Kurama had willingly stopped taking Naruto's chakra.[27] When Kurama later accepted Naruto's friendship, the two combined their chakra and these limitations no longer applied.[28]

Kurama Mode Edit

Naruto TailedBeast Mode

Naruto's shroud in Kurama Mode.

By synchronising his heart with Kurama's, Naruto is able to enter the complete version of Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, referred to as Kurama Mode (九喇嘛モード, Kurama Mōdo).[29] In this form, Naruto's shroud parts down the middle and opens up into a full-length haori, revealing a black undergarment with three magatama on each side of his high collar. The shroud's numerous swirl patterns become complete, black circles, and the whisker-like markings on his face become thicker. In Kurama Mode, Naruto has access to the most powerful secret abilities of a jinchūriki, including the Tailed Beast Ball and Tailed Beast Transformation.[29]

Naruto&#039;s Partial Transformation

Naruto's partial transformation in Kurama Mode.

Naruto's speed and strength are once more increased in this form, to the point where he was able to deflect five Tailed Beast Balls by simply moving past them at high speed.[30] He is also able to perform partial transformations in this form, producing only Kurama's head, arms or tails as needed.[31][32] Naruto is able to transfer his and Kurama's chakra to others, granting them tailless Version 1-like chakra shrouds that greatly enhance their techniques: Hinata Hyūga, for example, was able to deflect one of the Ten-Tails' tails with a single Eight Trigrams Vacuum Palm.[33] Kakashi Hatake stated that the power and volume of the transferred chakra was even greater than when Kurama had directly handed chakra to him, which had improved his Kamui at least three-fold.[34] Despite Kurama's contribution, C claimed the transferred chakra more closely resembles Naruto's own.[35]

Tailed Beast Mode Edit

Main article: Tailed Beast Mode

Naruto and Minato TBM

Naruto and Minato in Tailed Beast Mode, with the former using Sage Mode as well.

Like other jinchūriki, Naruto and Minato are able to manifest their tailed beast's body, but rather than physically becoming the beast as other jinchūriki do, their chakra instead forms a translucent construct of Kurama — Naruto's being the same colour as his shroud and Minato's being a darker shade of yellow — and the markings on their backs trail off into a pattern resembling a skeletal structure.[30] Whereas Naruto originally had to enter Kurama Mode before manifesting Kurama, Minato does so without entering an additional form.[36] Similarly, after both halves of Kurama are sealed inside him, Naruto no longer enters Kurama Mode when manifesting the Nine-Tails.[9] Both jinchūriki's eyes become slitted when entering this form.[37]

Kurama is able to control and speak through the construct without taking over its jinchūriki's body,[38] and the jinchūriki can allow others to enter its body, where they can be healed and reinvigorated by its chakra.[39] They are also able to transform Kurama's tails into chakra arms to interact with other large targets,[40] and retain the ability to perform their regular techniques, such as the Shadow Clone Technique or a larger-scale Rasengan.[41] Naruto initially couldn't maintain Tailed Beast Mode indefinitely because he and Kurama had not yet formed a perfect bond. At first they could only last for five minutes,[30] but they extended the time to eight minutes by the time of the Ten-Tails' revival.[42] Naruto later increases his Tailed Beast Mode to an unspecified time limit during his subsequent transformations. In his final battle with Toneri Ōtsutsuki, Naruto demonstrated the ability to manifest Kurama outside of his body, allowing the two to fight independently while both are still able to access their respective Chakra Modes.[9]

Senjutsu Influence Edit

TBM combines with SM

Naruto's combination of Kurama Mode and Sage Mode.

Naruto can combine his Nine-Tails Chakra Mode and its various forms with Sage Mode to further enhance his abilities with the power of senjutsu.[43] In this state, Naruto was able to create a senjutsu-enhanced Tailed Beast Ball,[44] as well as add senjutsu chakra to Minato's Rasengan.[45] The eye markings of Sage Mode also reflect on the manifestation of Kurama formed in Tailed Beast Mode, and as Naruto noted, he is able to absorb natural energy more quickly than usual while in Kurama Mode.[46]

Two years after the Fourth Shinobi World War, Naruto utilised his senjutsu-enhanced form against Toneri Ōtsutsuki and showed numerous improvements. His power had improved to the point that he could easily shatter Toneri's defences and overpower the Golden Wheel Reincarnation Explosion, which was capable of cutting the moon in half. Naruto seemingly demonstrated the ability to achieve flight without relying on the Six Paths Senjutsu, and could partition all of the power of this transformation into a single part of his body for enhanced strength.[9]

Six Paths Sage Mode Edit

Main article: Six Paths Sage Mode

Rikudō Sennin Mōdo

Naruto's shroud in Six Paths Sage Mode.

With the power given to him by Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki, Naruto is able to enter a form known as Six Paths Sage Mode, in which his Sage Mode loses the orange pigmentation around his eyes. Using the chakra of the Tailed Beasts, he dons a shroud that once again forms into a yellow coat with a black bodysuit underneath, but his skin is no longer covered by the chakra.[47] The bodysuit covers his torso, reaches down his arms to his knuckles, and down his legs to the point just above his sandals. He gains a pattern of six magatama around his collar and the usual marking of the Six Paths Senjutsu, composed of the Rinnegan above nine magatama, on his back. In this state, Naruto is able to fly and manifest nine Truth-Seeking Balls.[48][49]

Naruto&#039;s Battle Avatar

Naruto's conjoint Tailed Beast Mode with three heads and six arms.

Naruto retains the ability to manifest Kurama's senjutsu-enhanced construct,[50] whose might rivals Sasuke Uchiha's Complete Body — Susanoo, being able to deflect its sword slashes with a single tail and clash with it fist to fist.[51] Through the use of shadow clones, Naruto has shown the ability to combine three Kurama avatars into a single construct with three heads and six arms, which greatly resembles his ancestor Asura Ōtsutsuki's own chakra avatar.[52][53]

Years later as the Seventh Hokage, Naruto used his Six Paths Chakra in conjunction with his Kurama Mode.[54]

Trivia Edit

  • Upon first observing Naruto's chakra shroud in Kurama Mode from behind, Kakashi momentarily mistook Naruto for Minato.[30]
  • Prior to Naruto entering Kurama Mode for the first time, the markings on Naruto's chakra shroud would extend further along his arms and legs whenever he attempted to form the Tailed Beast Rasengan, causing his cloak to briefly progress toward its complete form.[55][56][57]
  • In Kurama Mode, the facial markings on Naruto's cheeks resemble Bagua trigrams, specifically the ☰ trigram.
  • In Power, despite the fact that Naruto had not yet subjugated Kurama's chakra, 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. He was also able to 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.[58]
  • When Minato first entered this mode, the bangs at the sides of his face spiked upward and his chakra cloak gained horns similar to those of his son. However, he reverted to his origial hairstyle after being kicked by Obito in chapter 639 and it remained that way from chapter 640 onward. This change was replicated in the anime, with Minato's hair changing after being kicked in Naruto: Shippūden episode 378.
