- As far as I understand what was released from the movie, I think it does count. Menma creates them from Kurama's chakra. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 21:13, December 20, 2012 (UTC)
I've seen the movie. It's a Jutsu, it's starts off the Horse Seal and creates 9 symbols in the air which the entities emerge from. I took a screenshot for the jutsu image but someone removed it so I won't place the rest of the info on the page. (Asterr259 (talk) 22:44, March 19, 2013 (UTC))
Creation Of All Things???
Am I the only one who sees the parallels? Menma uses this ability to form 9 individual entities all powered by one of the tails of the beast sealed within him. It seems very much like what the Sage did to create the 9 tailed beasts just on a smaller scale. If there's agreement with this perspective it seems like it'd be worth adding to the article since it's a pretty big deal. --Hawkeye2701 (talk) 00:52, April 6, 2013 (UTC)
They really aren't though. Even when defeated and reduced to kitsune, the beasts remained manifested until Menma called them back, essentially restoring power to his own version of Kurama. Which, since Shippuden has been building around the entire premise of putting all the tailed beasts back together to form the Ten-Tails, seems to fit the whole idea of this being like the sage, but smaller. I'm not saying the comparison is perfect, there's more than likely something I've overlooked, but since Kurama is just a fraction of the Ten-Tails power, this seems to work pretty well as he then creates nine entities from Kurama, each with a fraction of it's power, before bringing them back together to form the original. --Hawkeye2701 (talk) 04:55, April 7, 2013 (UTC)
Shinigami does not "literally mean" Grim Reaper. It literally means "death god" or "god of death". ~ Ten Tailed Fox 04:20, May 13, 2013 (UTC)
