The '''Tailed Beast Ball''' is the ultimate technique of a [[tailed beast]]. To form the attack, they gather both {{translation|positive black chakra|+の黒チャクラ|purasu no kuro chakura}}, and {{translation|negative white chakra|−の白チャクラ|mainasu no shiro chakura}}, [[Shape Transformation|shape]] it into a sphere, and then compress it inside their mouth. The black and white chakra needs to be balanced at an 8:2 ratio respectively or it will backfire.<ref name="ch519">''Naruto'' chapter 519, pages 16-17</ref> The ball can be fired differently, either in sphere form, which can be detonated for a wave explosion or launched to form a dome-shaped blast which flattens and erases everything around it, or as a concentrated beam of energy which gives it explosive penetrative power. A Tailed Beast Ball is incredibly dense, as when [[Naruto Uzumaki]] in his [[Naruto Uzumaki's Jinchūriki Forms#Version 2|four-tailed form]] created one, ground around him sunk beneath his weight after he swallowed it.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 295, pages 4-5</ref> When used in close proximity to other tailed beasts performing the technique, the Tailed Beast Balls can be combined, vastly increasing the attack's destructive power and size.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 571, pages 11-12</ref>

The '''Tailed Beast Ball''' is the ultimate technique of a [[tailed beast]]. [[Jinchūriki]] can also use Tailed Beast Balls when [[Jinchūriki Forms|transformed]].
   
The power of the attack is relative to the power of the user. The technique fired from a four-tailed Naruto broke through [[Summoning: Triple Rashōmon|three Rashōmon gates]] without losing its momentum.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 295, pages 6-11</ref> A fully charged Tailed Beast Ball from Gyūki can fill an entire valley with the explosion as well as plough through a [[Thirty-Six Layer Self-Repairing Barrier|multiple layered barrier]],<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 414, pages 6-9</ref><ref>''Naruto'' chapter 536, page 8</ref> while Kurama's own can create an explosion that is far larger than the [[Hokage Monument]] and the mountains around it,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 502, pages 7-8</ref> as well as equal that of a combined ball of five tailed beasts.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 571, page 12</ref> Individual Tailed Beast Balls from [[Matatabi]], [[Isobu]], [[Kokuō]], [[Saiken]], and [[Chōmei]] seem to be on the same level of destructive power since they all easily vaporised large mountains after Naruto deflected them with his speed.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 571, page 3</ref> When used by the [[Ten-Tails]] in its mature form, the Ten-Tails' Tailed Beast Ball took on a conical shape,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 613, pages 8-9</ref> and upon impact was able to destroy an entire village some distance away.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 613, page 12</ref>

Gyūki is even shown doing something in between, not consuming its Tailed Beast Ball yet still firing it out in a wave.<ref>Chapter 414, pages 6-9</ref> There is no limit to how much chakra can be put into a Tailed Beast Ball so long as the 8:2 ratio is maintained: on one occasion, [[Kurama]] pours almost all of its chakra into a Tailed Beast Ball, making the ball many times larger than itself;<ref>Chapter 499</ref> on another occasion, five tailed beasts combine their Tailed Beast Balls into a single large one.<ref>Chapter 571, pages 11-12</ref>
   
The tailed beasts' [[jinchūriki]] can also use this ability, though they need to be in their full tailed beast forms.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 519, page 9</ref> Should the jinchūriki lose control of their tailed beasts, they can perform this technique despite not being fully transformed, as seen when Naruto used it in his 'Version 2' form.
+
Tailed Beast Balls are incredibly dense, such that, when a [[version 2]] [[Naruto Uzumaki]] consumes one, he starts sinking into the ground due to the increased weight.<ref>Chapter 295, pages 4-5</ref> Despite how heavy they are, they travel rapidly once fired, enough to hit a target several countries away in only a few moments.<ref>Chapter 613, pages 11-15</ref> Tailed Beast Balls are very destructive, creating explosions that are visible from far away and that vaporise almost everything in the blast area.<ref>Chapter 613, pages 8-12</ref> The extent of the damage is dependent upon how the ball is fired and how much chakra it has, but at its "standard" size it is enough to destroy mountains.<ref>Chapter 571, page 3</ref> Tailed Beast Balls are comparatively weaker if a jinchūriki uses one without entering their [[Tailed Beast Mode]], yet it is still enough to represent a serious threat to people and infrastructure.<ref>Chapter 438</ref>
   
[[Minato Namikaze]] based the [[Rasengan]] off of the Tailed Beast Ball. Killer B observes that the process for forming a Rasengan is exactly the same as forming a Tailed Beast Ball. However, the addition of [[Chakra#Chakra Control|chakra rotation]] is necessary to control the Ball without being in tailed beast form.<ref name="ch519"/>
+
Some jinchūriki are shown using Tailed Beast Balls in atypical ways. As the Ten-Tails' jinchūriki, [[Obito Uchiha]] is able to form multiple Tailed Beast Balls at once via a tree he creates, each of which can fire in a different direction.<ref>Chapter 643, page 7</ref> Naruto, when using his [[Nine-Tails Chakra Mode]], can form a Tailed Beast Ball with his hands, similar to how he makes the [[Rasengan]].<ref>Chapter 598, page 10</ref> He can also add [[natural energy]] to his Tailed Beast Balls, making them more powerful,<ref>Chapter 695, page 13</ref> while also allowing them to be used against [[Truth-Seeking Ball]]s.<ref>Chapter 645, page 12</ref> In the anime, [[Sora]] uses an entirely white Tailed Beast Ball while [[Version 2|transformed]] under the influence of the [[Nine-Tails]]' chakra.<ref>''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 71</ref>

The Tailed Beast Ball is the ultimate technique of a tailed beast. Jinchūriki can also use Tailed Beast Balls when transformed.

Overview Edit

Bijudama 1

The gathered positive and negative chakra.

Tailed Beast Balls are made from an 8:2 ratio of positive black chakra (+の黒チャクラ, purasu no kuro chakura) and negative white chakra (−の白チャクラ, mainasu no shiro chakura).[2] Users must gather and balance this chakra in their mouths, shape it into a sphere (or a conical shape in the case of the Ten-Tails), and then fire it at their target; Gyūki likens this to vomiting.[3] Most users fire their Tailed Beast Balls as-is, while others may consume the ball and fire it from their mouth as a beam. Gyūki is even shown doing something in between, not consuming its Tailed Beast Ball yet still firing it out in a wave.[4] There is no limit to how much chakra can be put into a Tailed Beast Ball so long as the 8:2 ratio is maintained: on one occasion, Kurama pours almost all of its chakra into a Tailed Beast Ball, making the ball many times larger than itself;[5] on another occasion, five tailed beasts combine their Tailed Beast Balls into a single large one.[6]

Tailed Beast Balls are incredibly dense, such that, when a version 2 Naruto Uzumaki consumes one, he starts sinking into the ground due to the increased weight.[7] Despite how heavy they are, they travel rapidly once fired, enough to hit a target several countries away in only a few moments.[8] Tailed Beast Balls are very destructive, creating explosions that are visible from far away and that vaporise almost everything in the blast area.[9] The extent of the damage is dependent upon how the ball is fired and how much chakra it has, but at its "standard" size it is enough to destroy mountains.[10] Tailed Beast Balls are comparatively weaker if a jinchūriki uses one without entering their Tailed Beast Mode, yet it is still enough to represent a serious threat to people and infrastructure.[11]

Some jinchūriki are shown using Tailed Beast Balls in atypical ways. As the Ten-Tails' jinchūriki, Obito Uchiha is able to form multiple Tailed Beast Balls at once via a tree he creates, each of which can fire in a different direction.[12] Naruto, when using his Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, can form a Tailed Beast Ball with his hands, similar to how he makes the Rasengan.[13] He can also add natural energy to his Tailed Beast Balls, making them more powerful,[14] while also allowing them to be used against Truth-Seeking Balls.[15] In the anime, Sora uses an entirely white Tailed Beast Ball while transformed under the influence of the Nine-Tails' chakra.[16]
