<section begin=summary/>The {{translation|'''Ten-Tails'''|十尾|Jūbi}} is the original, primordial demon of the series. All nine of the [[tailed beasts]] are but portions of [[chakra]] divided from the Ten-Tails by the [[Sage of the Six Paths]]. The beast is considered to be the progenitor of the world as well as a signal of the beginning of the end of the world, should it ever be revived.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 594, page 2</ref> [[Obito Uchiha]]'s ultimate goal, which was inspired and designed by [[Madara Uchiha]],<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 606, page 12</ref> the [[Eye of the Moon Plan]], is to capture and merge all nine of the tailed beasts back into the Ten-Tails, and become its [[jinchūriki]] and then cast the reflection of his Sharingan on the [[moon]], casting a genjutsu known as the Infinite [[Tsukuyomi]] which will put the entire world under his control.<section end=summary/>

<section begin=summary/>The {{translation|'''Ten-Tails'''|十尾|Jūbi}} is the incarnation of the [[Shinju]] and [[Kaguya Ōtsutsuki]], created to reclaim the chakra inherited by Kaguya's sons, [[Hagoromo]] and [[Hamura]]. It is regarded as the progenitor of [[chakra]], and is tied to the legend of the Sage of the Six Paths and the birth of [[shinobi]].<section end=summary/> To end the beast's rampage, the Sage became the Ten-Tails' [[jinchūriki]] and later split its chakra into the nine [[tailed beasts]] to prevent it from causing further harm. Centuries later, its revival became the objective of [[Madara]] and [[Obito Uchiha]], who both sought to become the beast's jinchūriki in order to further [[Eye of the Moon Plan|their objectives]].

[[File:Depiction of Kaguya.png|thumb|left|Kaguya depicted with the fruit.]]
Centuries before the founding of the hidden villages, the [[Sage of the Six Paths]] saved the world from the Ten-Tails. He managed to subdue the beast and [[Fūinjutsu|sealed]] it within his own body, becoming the first jinchūriki. However, this offered merely a temporary solution to the menace: in the event of his death, the seal would dissolve and the Ten-Tails would once again be unleashed upon the world. Knowing this, the Sage searched for a more permanent solution. Ultimately, the Sage succeeded by using his [[Creation of All Things]] ability to separate the Ten-Tails' chakra from its body and divide it into nine separate constructs that would later become known as "[[tailed beasts]]", scattering them throughout the world. As a final precaution, using [[Chibaku Tensei]], the Sage entombed the physical remains of the Ten-Tails within a colossal stone prison and hurled it into the heavens, creating the [[moon]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 467, pages 15-16</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 510, pages 11-12</ref> The astonishing feat of not only successfully sealing the Ten-Tails, but also suppressing it, made the Sage a deified hero throughout the shinobi world.
+
Long before the founding of the hidden villages, during an era of endless wars between mankind, the Shinju, a tree revered as a deity, bore a chakra fruit once every thousand years. Although it was forbidden to consume the Shinju's fruit, it was eaten by Princess [[Kaguya Ōtsutsuki]], who used the power it granted her to end the wars plaguing the lands. Some time after this, Kaguya gave birth to two sons who became the first people born with [[chakra]]. Later, deciding that her children's chakra was rightfully hers, Kaguya incarnated together with the Shinju into an entity that became known as the Ten-Tails, which ravaged the land in an attempt to obtain said chakra.<ref name="ch681">Chapter 681, page 9</ref> However, because Kaguya's true motives were not realised, it was instead believed that the Shinju itself had taken on the form of a monster in an attempt to regain the chakra that Kaguya had stolen.<ref name="ch646">Chapter 646, pages 6-9</ref>
   
Centuries later, after the Rinnegan would once again manifest itself in one of the sage's descendants: [[Madara Uchiha]], a method to summon the empty vessel of the Ten-Tails called the [[Demonic Statue of the Outer Path]] was realised.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 606, pages 13-14</ref> This ability would later be passed on to [[Nagato]] of [[Amegakure]], and later [[Obito]] as well.

{{ImgRight|Ōtsutsuki vs. Shinju.png|Hagoromo and Hamura battle the Ten-Tails.}}
  +
In the final battle between the Ten-Tails and Kaguya's sons, [[Hagoromo]] and [[Hamura]], they managed to defeat the beast and [[Fūinjutsu|sealed]] it within Hagoromo, making him the first [[jinchūriki]]. This act, along with many other great deeds throughout his lifetime, resulted in Hagoromo becoming revered as the "''Sage of the Six Paths''". However, knowing that his death would unleash the Ten-Tails back into the world to continue its rampage and reclaim the chakra he had spread among humanity, Hagoromo separated the monster's chakra from its body and used his [[Creation of All Things]] ability to create the nine [[tailed beasts]]. Hagoromo then used [[Chibaku Tensei]] to seal the Ten-Tails' [[Demonic Statue of the Outer Path|husk]] in what would become the [[moon]].<ref>Chapter 467, pages 14-16</ref><ref>Chapter 510, pages 11-12</ref>
  +
  +
Unbeknownst to the brothers, Kaguya had created [[Black Zetsu]] prior to her sealing in order to facilitate her revival. To this end, it spent centuries attempting to unite the chakra of Hagormo's sons, [[Indra]] and [[Asura]], in order to cause one of their [[reincarnation]]s to awaken the [[Rinnegan]]. Eventually, thanks to Black Zetsu's machinations, the Rinnegan would once again manifest itself in one of Hagoromo's descendants: [[Madara Uchiha]]. With his new power, Madara [[Summoning: Demonic Statue of the Outer Path|summoned]] the empty vessel of the Ten-Tails back into the world and named it the [[Demonic Statue of the Outer Path]].<ref>Chapter 606, pages 13-14</ref> Joined by [[Obito Uchiha]], who continued his work after his death, Madara devised a means to reunite the Demonic Statue and the tailed beasts back into their original form so he could use the Ten-Tails to enact his lifelong ambition: the [[Eye of the Moon Plan]].

According to [[Kurama]], the Ten-Tails cannot be sensed through such means as detecting [[Negative Emotions Sensing|negative emotions]] as it has no feelings or ideals of its own.<ref name="ch610">Chapter 610, pages 5-6</ref> Despite this, when it sensed the presence of the tailed beasts' chakra inside [[Naruto Uzumaki]] and was reminded of Hagoromo, it reacted by gathering chakra and strengthening itself.<ref>Chapter 629, pages 5-6</ref> It was believed that the Ten-Tails was an incarnation of the Shinju with the singular goal of regathering the chakra that Kaguya had stolen from it,<ref name="ch646"/> but in actuality, it was following Kaguya's will to reclaim all chakra for herself.<ref name="ch681"/>

Silhouetted prior to its introduction in the story line, the Ten-Tails is cyclops-like humanoid in appearance with a conch shell-like upper body and spike-like protrusions on its back. Its unique eye, taking up most of its head, has four concentric circles with nine [[tomoe]] in the three circles closest to the pupil. When seen in a flashback, the Ten-Tails appearance was a bit more "crass". The spiky protrusions on its back were much higher and its tails were bushier.<ref name="names"/> When revived, though not fully restored, the Ten-Tails has six tomoe in its eye instead of the full nine.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 609, pages 16-17</ref>

The Ten-Tails is brown in colour and titanic in size;<ref>[[Ten-Tails (volume)|Volume 64]] cover</ref> one of its hands is larger than any of the tailed beasts.<ref>Chapter 611, pages 2</ref> While the beast possess multiple forms, common attributes include a [[Rinne Sharingan|single eye]], which takes up most of its head, and spiky protrusions growing out of its back in a shape reminiscent of a [[Wikipedia:Conch|conch shell]].<ref name="names" /> When it was initially revived in an incomplete form, the Ten-Tails possessed a grotesque bulb-like body with long arms and clawed hands, but no visible hind legs, as well as a wide mouth with multiple rows of pointed teeth and a single spike on its chin. Dark veins similar to those of a plant ran along its body, and the endings of its tails resembled leaf buds, which unfurled as it began entering its second form.<ref>Chapter 610, pages 2-3</ref><ref>Chapter 612, pages 16-17</ref>
  +
  +
In its next form, the Ten-Tails took on the shape of an emaciated humanoid with elongated limbs and a twisting neck. It now possessed visible legs, which it used along with its right arm to stand, as its left arm was missing from the elbow down. The beast's head was altered greatly, as its eye remained on the front of its head, it grew a single ear on the right side, and its mouth — which now contained straight teeth and bore a grin — moved to the left side, with a single triangular nostril appearing above it. Several horns formed on various parts on its head: two above each side of its face, two beneath its eye, and another below its ear. As it transformed, the bud-like attachments on its tails detached, revealing extendable tails which ended in humanoid hands.<ref name="Chapter 613, pages 4-5">Chapter 613, pages 4-5</ref> After further maturing, the Ten-Tails' body became less emaciated, it grew a complete left arm, and it began standing on its hind legs.<ref>Chapter 628, pages 11-12</ref> It later gained an even more muscular appearance and the horns on top of its head grew in size.<ref>Chapter 629, page 6</ref> When Hagoromo and Hamura encountered the Ten-Tails, it strongly resembled this form, albeit with a bloated appearance and additional spikes on its body.<ref name="ch670">Chapter 670, page 11</ref>
  +
  +
After becoming the Ten-Tails' jinchūriki, Obito expelled a construct of the Ten-Tails from his body, which then split open to reveal a gigantic tree, much like the original Shinju. This tree form, which completely dwarfed the Ten-Tails in size, possessed a tall, straight trunk with a single purple bud situated on top, inside of which was the Ten-Tails' eye.<ref name="ch646pg12">Chapter 646, page 12</ref> This tree form was initially stated to be the Shinju,<ref>Chapter 646, page 5</ref> but it was later referred to as the Ten-Tails.<ref name="ch673pg6">Chapter 673, page 6</ref>
  +
  +
When Kaguya Ōtsutsuki lost control over the tailed beast chakra inside her after being hit by [[Naruto Uzumaki]]'s [[Sage Art: Super Tailed Beast Rasenshuriken|attack]], she unwillingly transformed into a non-humanoid Ten-Tails that manifested as a bloated, white, rabbit-like form, with the heads of the nine tailed beasts growing from various points on its body. This chakra-based form of the Ten-Tails retained Kaguya's Rinne Sharingan on its forehead as well as ten tails ending in hands.<ref>Chapter 688, pages 11-15</ref>

[[File:Shinju's Power.PNG|thumb|The power of the Ten-Tails.]]
As the original form of all nine tailed beasts, the Ten-Tails was said to possess massive and overwhelmingly foul chakra that is potent enough to bring total despair and destruction to the world. According to Kurama, not only is the Ten-Tails the source of all chakra, but is also the progenitor of everything that exists in this world. Kurama stated that it was a god that created countries and had the power to swallow oceans, split the land, and carry mountains. In addition, Kurama admitted that it alone wouldn't even stand a chance against the Ten-Tails, and stated that the Sage feared that its revival would result in the end of the world.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 594, pages 9-10</ref> As a tailed beast, it is presumably able to create a [[Tailed Beast Ball]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 519</ref> It was shown having a single unique eye, but what it is or if it is a unique [[dōjutsu]] is unknown. Despite being in an incomplete state, a combined Tailed Beast Ball from [[Naruto]] and [[Killer B]] didn't even damage it.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 609, page 13</ref>

The Ten-Tails is said to be the progenitor of all that exists in the world. A god that created countries, it has the power to swallow oceans, split the land, and carry mountains. Kurama admitted that it alone wouldn't stand a chance against the Ten-Tails, and stated that the Sage of the Six Paths said that its revival would result in the end of the world.<ref name="ch594">Chapter 594, pages 8-10</ref> The Ten-Tails cannot be [[Sensing Technique|sensed]] through traditional [[Sensor Type|means]] as it gives off the same sensations as the [[natural energy]] circulating throughout the world. When Naruto attempted to gauge the power of the Ten-Tails using [[Sage Mode]], he was overwhelmed by the vastness of the beast's power, which Kurama claimed was immeasurable.<ref>Chapter 610, pages 5-6</ref> [[Gyūki]] stated that the Ten-Tails would be unbeatable if it was allowed to reach its final form.<ref>Chapter 630, page 5</ref>

=== Chakra and Physical Prowess ===
  +
[[File:Bijudama flick.png|thumb|left|The Ten-Tails deflects Gyūki's Tailed Beast Ball with one finger.]]
  +
Considered to be the source of all chakra, the Ten-Tails has massive and overwhelmingly powerful reserves that are capable of bringing total despair and destruction to the world. Its potent levels also enable it to survive the death of its jinchūriki, forcing Hagoromo to divide its chakra into several portions (the nine tailed beasts) that are still considered to be immensely powerful.<ref>Chapter 467, pages 15-16</ref> In subsequent forms, the beast's chakra increases significantly, enough to completely warp the shape of the [[Sensing Water Sphere]] at the [[Allied Shinobi Forces]]' [[Allied Shinobi Forces' Headquarters|headquarters]] into two connected spheres after reaching its second form.<ref name="Chapter 613, pages 4-5" />
  +
  +
Befitting its size, the Ten-Tails has immense physical strength and is deceptively fast, attacking Naruto and [[Killer B]] before either of them could react.<ref>Chapter 610, pages 10-11</ref> It also easily deflected a [[Tailed Beast Ball]] with one finger,<ref>Chapter 611, page 2</ref> and created a [[Tailed Beast Shockwave|shockwave]] strong enough to tear up the surrounding landscape with a single swipe of one tail.<ref>Chapter 610, pages 8-9</ref> The beast is durable enough to withstand the backlash of its own point-blank Tailed Beast Ball; when its own along with Gyūki's detonated inside of its body, it briefly inflated before shrinking back down largely unaffected.<ref>Chapter 615, pages 11-13</ref> Even [[Scorch Release: Halo Hurricane Jet Black Arrow Style Zero|wind-enhanced black flames]] only irritated the beast with no lasting damage, despite [[Amaterasu]] on its own being able to neutralise Gyūki.<ref name="Chapter 634, page 13">Chapter 634, page 13</ref> In its second form, the beast's tails effortlessly broke free from the various restraints created by the Allied Forces,<ref>Chapter 613, pages 2-3</ref> and can freely expand in length and thickness in order to attack distant foes.<ref>Chapter 617, page 9</ref>

[[File:Shinju Bijudama.png|thumb|The Ten-Tails creates a gigantic Tailed Beast Ball.]]
  +
As the original tailed beast, the Ten-Tails can create a [[Tailed Beast Ball]]. In its initial form, the ball is fired as a continuous beam which could overwhelm [[Continuous Tailed Beast Balls]] from both Gyūki and Kurama without losing momentum.<ref>Chapter 610, pages 12-15</ref><ref>Chapter 611, page 10</ref> When the Ten-Tails matured into its second form, its Tailed Beast Ball took on a conical shape and gained an immense increase in range, firing speed and destructive power. By seeing across vast distances with its eye, the beast could hit targets great distances away from itself and destroy both mountain ranges and entire cities with a single shot.<ref>Chapter 613, pages 7-15</ref> After further maturing, the Ten-Tails demonstrated the ability to unhinge its jaw, allowing it to unfurl a [[Wikipedia:Rafflesia|rafflesia]]-like appendage that functions as a cannon capable of firing massive and extremely powerful Tailed Beast Balls, capable of heavily distorting even the nigh unbreakable [[Four Red Yang Formation]].<ref name="ch630">Chapter 630, pages 4-6</ref>
  +
  +
[[File:Tenpenchii Anime 1.png|thumb|left|The Ten-Tails unleashes its Tenpenchii technique.]]
  +
After amassing its chakra, the Ten-Tails' roar can stir a series of massive [[Tenpenchii|natural disasters]].<ref>Chapter 628, page 15</ref> The Ten-Tails also has the ability to manipulate and alter its own body to some extent, allowing it to regrow lost limbs, purge burning flesh from its main body,<ref>Chapter 635, page 13</ref> and form additional hands to grab enemies navigating on its surface.<ref>Chapter 637, page 7</ref> To defend itself, it can spawn [[Ten-Tails Fission|fission beings]] of many shapes and sizes, ranging from humanoid to animal-like in appearance, some of which wield weapon-like appendages on their arms.<ref>Chapter 632, page 11</ref>

Madara and Obito could control the Ten-Tails in its first form by producing tendrils from its head, which then attached to their own necks.<ref>Chapter 610, pages 6-7</ref> To properly control it in its second form, however, they had to reinforce their connection using [[Hashirama Senju]]'s cells,<ref>Chapter 613, pages 7-8</ref> and Madara suspected it would be impossible to control the beast in subsequent forms without becoming its jinchūriki. While connected to the beast, Obito used it as a medium for his [[Wood Release: Cutting Technique]].<ref>Chapter 614, pages 6-7</ref> According to Kurama's [[Yin]] half, there is a side effect to the Ten-Tails being extracted from its jinchūriki: while the tailed beasts' removal will not put the host in mortal danger due to the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path's powerful life force, the individual will be left near death and rendered paralysed for a period of several months.<ref>Chapter 656, pages 12-13</ref>
  +
  +
In its tree form, its roots can extend and capture enemies as large as tailed beasts in order to [[Chakra Absorption Techniques|absorb]] their chakra, turning humans into dessicated corpses in a matter of seconds.<ref>Chapter 646, pages 2-5</ref> Its jinchūriki can shape these roots into other forms, such as giant wooden dragons.<ref>Chapter 650, page 5</ref> When the bud at the top of the tree blooms and the eye within is revealed, the [[Infinite Tsukuyomi]] can be activated.<ref>Chapter 646, pages 11-12</ref> If the Ten-Tails is revived with only a piece of some of the tailed beasts' chakra, the bud may take up to fifteen minutes to bloom, though the process can be accelerated by absorbing more chakra.<ref>Chapter 647, pages 8-9, 11</ref> Those who are caught in the Infinite Tsukuyomi and [[God: Nativity of a World of Trees|attached]] to the roots of the tree are gradually reduced to shells of their former selves, ultimately becoming [[White Zetsu Army|White Zetsu]].<ref>Chapter 679, pages 8-9</ref>

During their battle with [[Obito]] and [[Madara Uchiha]], [[Naruto]] and [[Killer B]] prepare a massive [[Tailed Beast Ball]] in order to destroy the [[Demonic Statue of the Outer Path]] before the Ten-Tails could be fully revived. Though the statue's chakra vanished after the attack, once the smoke settled, it was revealed that the beast had successfully been revived. With this, Obito declared the end of this world and Madara notes that they should get on with the plan.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 609, pages 13-17</ref>

=== Fourth Shinobi World War: Climax ===
  +
[[File:Jubi's revival.png|thumb|The Ten-Tails' revival is completed.]]
  +
Though only able to obtain fragments of Gyūki and Kurama's chakra, Obito fed the [[Benihisago]] and [[Kohaku no Jōhei]] to the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path, beginning its regeneration into the Ten-Tails. As Madara joined the fray, Naruto and [[Killer B]] attempted to destroy the Demonic Statue with a massive [[Tailed Beast Ball]] to stop the Ten-Tails from being fully revived. Though the statue's chakra vanished after the attack, the supposed victory was short lived as the Ten-Tails emerged from the settling smoke, causing Obito to declare it was the end of the world.
  +
  +
[[File:Jubi vs. Kurama&Gyuki.png|thumb|left|The Ten-Tails battling Kurama and Gyūki.]]
  +
With the revival complete, Obito and Madara situated themselves atop the beast's head, from which two tendrils manifested and connected to the two Uchiha's necks. Not wanting to waste any time, Obito noted that he wished to cast the [[Infinite Tsukuyomi]] immediately while Madara wanted to test the beast's power first. After being attacked by the beast, Kurama and Gyūki launched [[Continuous Tailed Beast Balls|a barrage]] of simultaneous Tailed Beast Balls at it only for the Ten-Tails to counter using one of its own. After the dust cleared, Naruto's [[shadow clone]] and [[Kakashi Hatake]] were launched above the Ten-Tails, where Kakashi [[Kamui|released]] Gyūki, who then fired a point-blank range Tailed Beast Ball at the Ten-Tails' eye, only for it to flick the ball back at its creator with a single finger. The two Uchiha then attempted to decimate their opponents with a Tailed Beast Ball, but missed as a result of Obito momentarily [[Mind Body Switch Technique|losing control]]. With the battlefield now shrouded in [[Hiding in Mist Technique|mist]] and all [[Sensor Type|sensory]] skills being [[Insect Jamming Technique|jammed]], the remainder of the Allied Forces arrived to assist in the battle.
  +
  +
[[File:B stops the Ten Tails.png|thumb|Killer B clashing with the Ten-Tails.]]
  +
The Alliance launched a barrage of techniques in order to incapacitate the Ten-Tails in an attempt to attack Obito and Madara, but failed as the Ten-Tails entered its second form and broke free of its bindings. The Uchiha then proceeded to devastate several towns as well as the Allied Force's headquarters with a series of Tailed Beast Balls. After the Uchiha strengthened their control using Hashirama's cells, Obito used the Ten-Tails' body as a medium for the [[Wood Release: Cutting Technique]], with [[Neji Hyūga]] among those fatally wounded as a result, before the beast was restrained by [[Kitsuchi]]'s [[Earth Release: Sandwich Technique]]. Ignoring Madara's warnings, Obito once again attempted to annihilate the Allied Forces with a Tailed Beast Ball at close range, but before he could fire, Killer B forced the attack down the Ten-Tails' throat using his own Tailed Beast Ball, causing the beast to collapse.
  +
  +
[[File:Ten-Tails cages the Alliance.png|thumb|left|The Ten-Tails cages the Alliance.]]
  +
After Naruto [[Chakra Transfer Technique|distributed]] his and Kurama's combined chakra to the Allied Forces, the Ten-Tails was quickly overwhelmed and [[Shadow Imitation Technique|restrained]] by the [[Nara clan]]. With the assistance of Madara's power, the Ten-Tails was able to resist and attempted to assault the shinobi with its tails, only to be stopped by their combined efforts. The beast subsequently formed a cage around the Allied Forces with its tails, but the shinobi pressed forward undeterred and severed two of the beast's tails with Naruto's [[Rasenshuriken]], separating Madara and Obito from its head with their subsequent attack. Now acting on its own accord and maturing even further, the Ten-Tails unleashed its [[Tenpenchii]] and decimated its surroundings. As the technique's effects dissipated, the Ten-Tails sensed the presence of seven tailed beasts within Naruto and was reminded of the Sage of the Six Paths, which prompted it to gather more chakra, increasing its form once more. It opened its mouth wide, producing a flower-like structure to create a gigantic Tailed Beast Ball, which easily smashed through the Allied Forces [[Earth Release: Practice Brick Technique|Earth Release barriers]], but was [[Flying Thunder God: Guiding Thunder|warped away]] by [[Minato Namikaze]] upon his arrival to the battlefield.
  +
  +
[[File:Ten-Tails clones at bt.png|thumb|The Ten-Tails' clones are deployed.]]
  +
After the [[Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation|reincarnated]] [[Hokage]] had properly positioned themselves, they trapped the Ten-Tails within a [[Four Red Yang Formation|large barrier]] topped with Hashirama's own [[Sage Art: Gate of the Great God|restraints]] to further immobilise its movements. The Ten-Tails, aware that its capture was imminent, produced [[Ten-Tails Fission|miniature clones]] to defend its main body. With the help of their respective [[Summoning Technique|summons]], Naruto and the newly arrived [[Sasuke Uchiha]] got past the Ten-Tails' clones and, by combining their [[Wind Release: Ultra-Big Ball Rasenshuriken]] and [[Blaze Release: Susanoo Kagutsuchi]], unleashed the [[Scorch Release: Halo Hurricane Jet Black Arrow Style Zero]], which dealt a direct hit to the Ten-Tails. While Naruto and Sasuke argued about whether to remove the tailed beasts inside the Ten-Tails or simply let it burn, the beast separated the burning flesh from its body. Obito then emerged from [[Kamui's Dimension|another dimension]] heavily wounded and landed on the beast's head, prompting Madara to attempt to control him in an effort to properly [[Outer Path: Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique|resurrect himself]] so that he could become the beast's jinchūriki. Obito resisted this control and used the opportunity to [[Six Paths Ten-Tails Coffin Seal|seal]] the beast within himself, becoming the Ten-Tails' second jinchūriki.

=== Birth of the Ten-Tails' Jinchūriki ===

[[File:Ten-Tails tree.png|thumb|left|The Ten-Tails in its tree form.]]
  +
Once inside Obito's body, the Ten-Tails caused Obito to suffer a psychological breakdown and lose control over his own body, before ultimately gaining control over the beast's power and undergoing a second transformation. Later deciding to press on with his plan, Obito expelled the Ten-Tails from his body while remaining its jinchūriki and caused it to transform into a gigantic tree for the purpose of casting the Infinite Tsukuyomi. Once in this form, the tree's roots began [[Chakra Absorption Techniques|absorbing]] chakra from the Allied Forces, reducing the time that the bud containing its eye would take to bloom. As Obito continued to dominate the battle, waiting for the blooming of the tree's bud to be completed, the [[senjutsu]]-enhanced teamwork of Naruto and Sasuke was able to land a critical hit on Obito. This allowed Naruto, [[Gaara]], and Killer B to latch onto the tailed beast chakra within him using their own, and with the combined efforts of the entire Allied Forces, the tailed beasts were freed from Obito, halting the tree's development.
  +
  +
[[File:Madara summons TT.png|thumb|Madara summons the newly revived Ten-Tails.]]
  +
Later, after Madara once again sealed the nine tailed beasts within the Demonic Statue, the Ten-Tails revived once again. Shortly thereafter, Madara summoned the beast and sealed it within himself, making him its newest jinchūriki. When Naruto used the [[Sage Art: Lava Release Rasenshuriken]] to cut the tree left behind by Obito in half, Madara was told to absorb the falling tree, interpreting the voice in his head as the Shinju's desire to unite everything into one being.

[[File:Ten-Tails sealing.png|thumb|left|The tailed beasts being freed from the Ten-Tails.]]

Once Madara had completed the Eye of the Moon Plan, he was promptly betrayed by [[Black Zetsu]], who proceeded to use Madara as a medium to absorb enormous amounts of chakra from the victims of the Infinite Tsukuyomi, thereby completing the revival of Kaguya. During [[Team Kakashi]]'s subsequent battle with Kaguya, Naruto was able to hit her with [[Sage Art: Super Tailed Beast Rasenshuriken|nine Rasenshuriken]], each containing the chakra of one tailed beast. Resonating with said chakra, the tailed beast chakra within Kaguya's body grew unstable, causing her to unwillingly transform into a rabbit-like incarnation of the Ten-Tails. However, as she was within her [[Kaguya's Dimensions|core dimension]], Kaguya was able to continue siphoning chakra out of the Infinite Tsukuyomi's victims and quickly returned to her original form. At the battle's conclusion, Kaguya was [[Six Paths — Chibaku Tensei|sealed]] once more by the combined efforts of Naruto and Sasuke, causing her to transform back into the Ten-Tails and ultimately the Demonic Statue as the tailed beasts and Madara were expelled from her body.

The Ten-Tails (十尾, Jūbi) is the incarnation of the Shinju and Kaguya Ōtsutsuki, created to reclaim the chakra inherited by Kaguya's sons, Hagoromo and Hamura. It is regarded as the progenitor of chakra, and is tied to the legend of the Sage of the Six Paths and the birth of shinobi. To end the beast's rampage, the Sage became the Ten-Tails' jinchūriki and later split its chakra into the nine tailed beasts to prevent it from causing further harm. Centuries later, its revival became the objective of Madara and Obito Uchiha, who both sought to become the beast's jinchūriki in order to further their objectives.

Background Edit

Depiction of Kaguya

Kaguya depicted with the fruit.

Long before the founding of the hidden villages, during an era of endless wars between mankind, the Shinju, a tree revered as a deity, bore a chakra fruit once every thousand years. Although it was forbidden to consume the Shinju's fruit, it was eaten by Princess Kaguya Ōtsutsuki, who used the power it granted her to end the wars plaguing the lands. Some time after this, Kaguya gave birth to two sons who became the first people born with chakra. Later, deciding that her children's chakra was rightfully hers, Kaguya incarnated together with the Shinju into an entity that became known as the Ten-Tails, which ravaged the land in an attempt to obtain said chakra.[3] However, because Kaguya's true motives were not realised, it was instead believed that the Shinju itself had taken on the form of a monster in an attempt to regain the chakra that Kaguya had stolen.[4]

Ōtsutsuki vs. Shinju

Hagoromo and Hamura battle the Ten-Tails.

In the final battle between the Ten-Tails and Kaguya's sons, Hagoromo and Hamura, they managed to defeat the beast and sealed it within Hagoromo, making him the first jinchūriki. This act, along with many other great deeds throughout his lifetime, resulted in Hagoromo becoming revered as the "Sage of the Six Paths". However, knowing that his death would unleash the Ten-Tails back into the world to continue its rampage and reclaim the chakra he had spread among humanity, Hagoromo separated the monster's chakra from its body and used his Creation of All Things ability to create the nine tailed beasts. Hagoromo then used Chibaku Tensei to seal the Ten-Tails' husk in what would become the moon.[5][6]

Unbeknownst to the brothers, Kaguya had created Black Zetsu prior to her sealing in order to facilitate her revival. To this end, it spent centuries attempting to unite the chakra of Hagormo's sons, Indra and Asura, in order to cause one of their reincarnations to awaken the Rinnegan. Eventually, thanks to Black Zetsu's machinations, the Rinnegan would once again manifest itself in one of Hagoromo's descendants: Madara Uchiha. With his new power, Madara summoned the empty vessel of the Ten-Tails back into the world and named it the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path.[7] Joined by Obito Uchiha, who continued his work after his death, Madara devised a means to reunite the Demonic Statue and the tailed beasts back into their original form so he could use the Ten-Tails to enact his lifelong ambition: the Eye of the Moon Plan.

Personality Edit

According to Kurama, the Ten-Tails cannot be sensed through such means as detecting negative emotions as it has no feelings or ideals of its own.[8] Despite this, when it sensed the presence of the tailed beasts' chakra inside Naruto Uzumaki and was reminded of Hagoromo, it reacted by gathering chakra and strengthening itself.[9] It was believed that the Ten-Tails was an incarnation of the Shinju with the singular goal of regathering the chakra that Kaguya had stolen from it,[4] but in actuality, it was following Kaguya's will to reclaim all chakra for herself.[3]

Appearance Edit

  • First form.
  • Second form.
  • Third form.
  • Tree form.
  • Unstable form.

The Ten-Tails is brown in colour and titanic in size;[10] one of its hands is larger than any of the tailed beasts.[11] While the beast possess multiple forms, common attributes include a single eye, which takes up most of its head, and spiky protrusions growing out of its back in a shape reminiscent of a conch shell.[2] When it was initially revived in an incomplete form, the Ten-Tails possessed a grotesque bulb-like body with long arms and clawed hands, but no visible hind legs, as well as a wide mouth with multiple rows of pointed teeth and a single spike on its chin. Dark veins similar to those of a plant ran along its body, and the endings of its tails resembled leaf buds, which unfurled as it began entering its second form.[12][13]

In its next form, the Ten-Tails took on the shape of an emaciated humanoid with elongated limbs and a twisting neck. It now possessed visible legs, which it used along with its right arm to stand, as its left arm was missing from the elbow down. The beast's head was altered greatly, as its eye remained on the front of its head, it grew a single ear on the right side, and its mouth — which now contained straight teeth and bore a grin — moved to the left side, with a single triangular nostril appearing above it. Several horns formed on various parts on its head: two above each side of its face, two beneath its eye, and another below its ear. As it transformed, the bud-like attachments on its tails detached, revealing extendable tails which ended in humanoid hands.[14] After further maturing, the Ten-Tails' body became less emaciated, it grew a complete left arm, and it began standing on its hind legs.[15] It later gained an even more muscular appearance and the horns on top of its head grew in size.[16] When Hagoromo and Hamura encountered the Ten-Tails, it strongly resembled this form, albeit with a bloated appearance and additional spikes on its body.[17]

After becoming the Ten-Tails' jinchūriki, Obito expelled a construct of the Ten-Tails from his body, which then split open to reveal a gigantic tree, much like the original Shinju. This tree form, which completely dwarfed the Ten-Tails in size, possessed a tall, straight trunk with a single purple bud situated on top, inside of which was the Ten-Tails' eye.[18] This tree form was initially stated to be the Shinju,[19] but it was later referred to as the Ten-Tails.[20]

When Kaguya Ōtsutsuki lost control over the tailed beast chakra inside her after being hit by Naruto Uzumaki's attack, she unwillingly transformed into a non-humanoid Ten-Tails that manifested as a bloated, white, rabbit-like form, with the heads of the nine tailed beasts growing from various points on its body. This chakra-based form of the Ten-Tails retained Kaguya's Rinne Sharingan on its forehead as well as ten tails ending in hands.[21]

Abilities Edit

Shinju&#039;s Power

The power of the Ten-Tails.

The Ten-Tails is said to be the progenitor of all that exists in the world. A god that created countries, it has the power to swallow oceans, split the land, and carry mountains. Kurama admitted that it alone wouldn't stand a chance against the Ten-Tails, and stated that the Sage of the Six Paths said that its revival would result in the end of the world.[22] The Ten-Tails cannot be sensed through traditional means as it gives off the same sensations as the natural energy circulating throughout the world. When Naruto attempted to gauge the power of the Ten-Tails using Sage Mode, he was overwhelmed by the vastness of the beast's power, which Kurama claimed was immeasurable.[23] Gyūki stated that the Ten-Tails would be unbeatable if it was allowed to reach its final form.[24]

Chakra and Physical Prowess Edit

Bijudama flick

The Ten-Tails deflects Gyūki's Tailed Beast Ball with one finger.

Considered to be the source of all chakra, the Ten-Tails has massive and overwhelmingly powerful reserves that are capable of bringing total despair and destruction to the world. Its potent levels also enable it to survive the death of its jinchūriki, forcing Hagoromo to divide its chakra into several portions (the nine tailed beasts) that are still considered to be immensely powerful.[25] In subsequent forms, the beast's chakra increases significantly, enough to completely warp the shape of the Sensing Water Sphere at the Allied Shinobi Forces' headquarters into two connected spheres after reaching its second form.[14]

Befitting its size, the Ten-Tails has immense physical strength and is deceptively fast, attacking Naruto and Killer B before either of them could react.[26] It also easily deflected a Tailed Beast Ball with one finger,[27] and created a shockwave strong enough to tear up the surrounding landscape with a single swipe of one tail.[28] The beast is durable enough to withstand the backlash of its own point-blank Tailed Beast Ball; when its own along with Gyūki's detonated inside of its body, it briefly inflated before shrinking back down largely unaffected.[29] Even wind-enhanced black flames only irritated the beast with no lasting damage, despite Amaterasu on its own being able to neutralise Gyūki.[30] In its second form, the beast's tails effortlessly broke free from the various restraints created by the Allied Forces,[31] and can freely expand in length and thickness in order to attack distant foes.[32]

Ninjutsu Edit

Shinju Bijudama

The Ten-Tails creates a gigantic Tailed Beast Ball.

As the original tailed beast, the Ten-Tails can create a Tailed Beast Ball. In its initial form, the ball is fired as a continuous beam which could overwhelm Continuous Tailed Beast Balls from both Gyūki and Kurama without losing momentum.[33][34] When the Ten-Tails matured into its second form, its Tailed Beast Ball took on a conical shape and gained an immense increase in range, firing speed and destructive power. By seeing across vast distances with its eye, the beast could hit targets great distances away from itself and destroy both mountain ranges and entire cities with a single shot.[35] After further maturing, the Ten-Tails demonstrated the ability to unhinge its jaw, allowing it to unfurl a rafflesia-like appendage that functions as a cannon capable of firing massive and extremely powerful Tailed Beast Balls, capable of heavily distorting even the nigh unbreakable Four Red Yang Formation.[36]

Tenpenchii Anime 1

The Ten-Tails unleashes its Tenpenchii technique.

After amassing its chakra, the Ten-Tails' roar can stir a series of massive natural disasters.[37] The Ten-Tails also has the ability to manipulate and alter its own body to some extent, allowing it to regrow lost limbs, purge burning flesh from its main body,[38] and form additional hands to grab enemies navigating on its surface.[39] To defend itself, it can spawn fission beings of many shapes and sizes, ranging from humanoid to animal-like in appearance, some of which wield weapon-like appendages on their arms.[40]

Other Skills Edit

Madara and Obito could control the Ten-Tails in its first form by producing tendrils from its head, which then attached to their own necks.[41] To properly control it in its second form, however, they had to reinforce their connection using Hashirama Senju's cells,[42] and Madara suspected it would be impossible to control the beast in subsequent forms without becoming its jinchūriki. While connected to the beast, Obito used it as a medium for his Wood Release: Cutting Technique.[43] According to Kurama's Yin half, there is a side effect to the Ten-Tails being extracted from its jinchūriki: while the tailed beasts' removal will not put the host in mortal danger due to the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path's powerful life force, the individual will be left near death and rendered paralysed for a period of several months.[44]

In its tree form, its roots can extend and capture enemies as large as tailed beasts in order to absorb their chakra, turning humans into dessicated corpses in a matter of seconds.[45] Its jinchūriki can shape these roots into other forms, such as giant wooden dragons.[46] When the bud at the top of the tree blooms and the eye within is revealed, the Infinite Tsukuyomi can be activated.[47] If the Ten-Tails is revived with only a piece of some of the tailed beasts' chakra, the bud may take up to fifteen minutes to bloom, though the process can be accelerated by absorbing more chakra.[48] Those who are caught in the Infinite Tsukuyomi and attached to the roots of the tree are gradually reduced to shells of their former selves, ultimately becoming White Zetsu.[49]

Part II Edit

Fourth Shinobi World War: Climax Edit

Jubi&#039;s revival

The Ten-Tails' revival is completed.

Though only able to obtain fragments of Gyūki and Kurama's chakra, Obito fed the Benihisago and Kohaku no Jōhei to the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path, beginning its regeneration into the Ten-Tails. As Madara joined the fray, Naruto and Killer B attempted to destroy the Demonic Statue with a massive Tailed Beast Ball to stop the Ten-Tails from being fully revived. Though the statue's chakra vanished after the attack, the supposed victory was short lived as the Ten-Tails emerged from the settling smoke, causing Obito to declare it was the end of the world.

Jubi vs. Kurama&amp;Gyuki

The Ten-Tails battling Kurama and Gyūki.

With the revival complete, Obito and Madara situated themselves atop the beast's head, from which two tendrils manifested and connected to the two Uchiha's necks. Not wanting to waste any time, Obito noted that he wished to cast the Infinite Tsukuyomi immediately while Madara wanted to test the beast's power first. After being attacked by the beast, Kurama and Gyūki launched a barrage of simultaneous Tailed Beast Balls at it only for the Ten-Tails to counter using one of its own. After the dust cleared, Naruto's shadow clone and Kakashi Hatake were launched above the Ten-Tails, where Kakashi released Gyūki, who then fired a point-blank range Tailed Beast Ball at the Ten-Tails' eye, only for it to flick the ball back at its creator with a single finger. The two Uchiha then attempted to decimate their opponents with a Tailed Beast Ball, but missed as a result of Obito momentarily losing control. With the battlefield now shrouded in mist and all sensory skills being jammed, the remainder of the Allied Forces arrived to assist in the battle.

B stops the Ten Tails

Killer B clashing with the Ten-Tails.

The Alliance launched a barrage of techniques in order to incapacitate the Ten-Tails in an attempt to attack Obito and Madara, but failed as the Ten-Tails entered its second form and broke free of its bindings. The Uchiha then proceeded to devastate several towns as well as the Allied Force's headquarters with a series of Tailed Beast Balls. After the Uchiha strengthened their control using Hashirama's cells, Obito used the Ten-Tails' body as a medium for the Wood Release: Cutting Technique, with Neji Hyūga among those fatally wounded as a result, before the beast was restrained by Kitsuchi's Earth Release: Sandwich Technique. Ignoring Madara's warnings, Obito once again attempted to annihilate the Allied Forces with a Tailed Beast Ball at close range, but before he could fire, Killer B forced the attack down the Ten-Tails' throat using his own Tailed Beast Ball, causing the beast to collapse.

Ten-Tails cages the Alliance

The Ten-Tails cages the Alliance.

After Naruto distributed his and Kurama's combined chakra to the Allied Forces, the Ten-Tails was quickly overwhelmed and restrained by the Nara clan. With the assistance of Madara's power, the Ten-Tails was able to resist and attempted to assault the shinobi with its tails, only to be stopped by their combined efforts. The beast subsequently formed a cage around the Allied Forces with its tails, but the shinobi pressed forward undeterred and severed two of the beast's tails with Naruto's Rasenshuriken, separating Madara and Obito from its head with their subsequent attack. Now acting on its own accord and maturing even further, the Ten-Tails unleashed its Tenpenchii and decimated its surroundings. As the technique's effects dissipated, the Ten-Tails sensed the presence of seven tailed beasts within Naruto and was reminded of the Sage of the Six Paths, which prompted it to gather more chakra, increasing its form once more. It opened its mouth wide, producing a flower-like structure to create a gigantic Tailed Beast Ball, which easily smashed through the Allied Forces Earth Release barriers, but was warped away by Minato Namikaze upon his arrival to the battlefield.

Ten-Tails clones at bt

The Ten-Tails' clones are deployed.

After the reincarnated Hokage had properly positioned themselves, they trapped the Ten-Tails within a large barrier topped with Hashirama's own restraints to further immobilise its movements. The Ten-Tails, aware that its capture was imminent, produced miniature clones to defend its main body. With the help of their respective summons, Naruto and the newly arrived Sasuke Uchiha got past the Ten-Tails' clones and, by combining their Wind Release: Ultra-Big Ball Rasenshuriken and Blaze Release: Susanoo Kagutsuchi, unleashed the Scorch Release: Halo Hurricane Jet Black Arrow Style Zero, which dealt a direct hit to the Ten-Tails. While Naruto and Sasuke argued about whether to remove the tailed beasts inside the Ten-Tails or simply let it burn, the beast separated the burning flesh from its body. Obito then emerged from another dimension heavily wounded and landed on the beast's head, prompting Madara to attempt to control him in an effort to properly resurrect himself so that he could become the beast's jinchūriki. Obito resisted this control and used the opportunity to seal the beast within himself, becoming the Ten-Tails' second jinchūriki.

Birth of the Ten-Tails' Jinchūriki Edit

Ten-Tails tree

The Ten-Tails in its tree form.

Once inside Obito's body, the Ten-Tails caused Obito to suffer a psychological breakdown and lose control over his own body, before ultimately gaining control over the beast's power and undergoing a second transformation. Later deciding to press on with his plan, Obito expelled the Ten-Tails from his body while remaining its jinchūriki and caused it to transform into a gigantic tree for the purpose of casting the Infinite Tsukuyomi. Once in this form, the tree's roots began absorbing chakra from the Allied Forces, reducing the time that the bud containing its eye would take to bloom. As Obito continued to dominate the battle, waiting for the blooming of the tree's bud to be completed, the senjutsu-enhanced teamwork of Naruto and Sasuke was able to land a critical hit on Obito. This allowed Naruto, Gaara, and Killer B to latch onto the tailed beast chakra within him using their own, and with the combined efforts of the entire Allied Forces, the tailed beasts were freed from Obito, halting the tree's development.

Madara summons TT

Madara summons the newly revived Ten-Tails.

Later, after Madara once again sealed the nine tailed beasts within the Demonic Statue, the Ten-Tails revived once again. Shortly thereafter, Madara summoned the beast and sealed it within himself, making him its newest jinchūriki. When Naruto used the Sage Art: Lava Release Rasenshuriken to cut the tree left behind by Obito in half, Madara was told to absorb the falling tree, interpreting the voice in his head as the Shinju's desire to unite everything into one being.

Kaguya Ōtsutsuki Strikes Edit

Ten-Tails sealing

The tailed beasts being freed from the Ten-Tails.

Once Madara had completed the Eye of the Moon Plan, he was promptly betrayed by Black Zetsu, who proceeded to use Madara as a medium to absorb enormous amounts of chakra from the victims of the Infinite Tsukuyomi, thereby completing the revival of Kaguya. During Team Kakashi's subsequent battle with Kaguya, Naruto was able to hit her with nine Rasenshuriken, each containing the chakra of one tailed beast. Resonating with said chakra, the tailed beast chakra within Kaguya's body grew unstable, causing her to unwillingly transform into a rabbit-like incarnation of the Ten-Tails. However, as she was within her core dimension, Kaguya was able to continue siphoning chakra out of the Infinite Tsukuyomi's victims and quickly returned to her original form. At the battle's conclusion, Kaguya was sealed once more by the combined efforts of Naruto and Sasuke, causing her to transform back into the Ten-Tails and ultimately the Demonic Statue as the tailed beasts and Madara were expelled from her body.

In Other Media Edit

Video Games Edit

Although it is not a selectable character, Obito summons the Ten-Tails in its second form as his awakening in Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution.

Trivia Edit

  • Deidarabotchi, also known as Daidarabotchi (ダイダラボッチ, Literally meaning: Giant), was a yōkai of titanic proportions in Japanese mythology. Kurama's explanation of how powerful the Ten-Tails is reflects Daidarabotchi's role in the formation of Japan's wilderness, such as the two peaks of Mount Tsukuba, according to Japanese myth.
  • The name "Datara" may refer to Ippon-datara (一本ダタラ, Literally meaning: One-Legged Blacksmith), a one-eyed, one-legged blacksmith said to live deep in the mountains of Kumano. Myths vary on his nature as a yōkai or the fallen deity Ameno-me-Hitotsu. Either way, the legends say of Ippon-datara's ability to forge living things from metal that makes another reference to the Ten-Tails as the progenitor of the world.
  • The Ten-Tails' Rinne Sharingan has been depicted with varying numbers of tomoe on different occasions. When first shown as a silhouette, its eye contained nine,[50] but it was then consistently depicted with only six tomoe after its revival.[51] The eye contained in the bud of the tree produced by Obito was once again shown to contain nine tomoe.[18] During its battle with Hagoromo and Hamura, its eye was depicted with four rows of tomoe, indicating it contained at least twelve.[17]
Ten Tails Anime

The Ten-Tails as depicted in its anime début.

  • In its anime début, the Ten-Tails' eye was first depicted red with nine tomoe during its battle with the Sage of the Six Paths, but when it was about to be sealed into the moon, its eye was instead purple and lacked tomoe. This mistake was corrected in subsequent appearances.
  • The mature humanoid form of the Ten-Tails' head has three primary features: an eye, an ear and a mouth. This is possibly a reference to the maxim: "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil".
  • The twin rocks Hagoromo and Hamura are seen fighting the Ten-Tails on in Hagoromo's flashback are a reference to the Meoto Iwa, a pair of stones off the coast of Japan that are considered sacred in Shintō. They are bound by "shinenawa" (標縄, enclosing rope) and represent the union of the Japanese Kami, Izanagi and Izanami. In the real world, the two rocks are located near the Grand Shrine of Ise, the most important location in Shintō.
