species/classification again ...

Do we really must list it as a "tailed beast" ??? Because that isn't true, Tailed Beasts are creations from its chakra and the Ten-Tails was stated to have created the universe, so it's a deity. Just because it's a "beast" and has "tails" doesn't make it a tailed beast, would be like calling a human a hairless ape or a dog domesticated canine.--Elveonora (talk) 10:58, May 13, 2013 (UTC)

It's a beast, has tails, and is referred to most commonly as the Ten-Tails, not as a Deity despite having an actual name of one given to it. Yeah, pretty much makes it a Tailed Beast. As for your other point, Humans are Homo Sapiens, which are a genus of primate and being perfectly literal, a dog is a domesticated canine. Just because you can use more than one term to describe something, doesn't make one definition any more accurate than another.

Humans are Apes

Dogs are Canines

The Ten Tails is a Tailed Beast and a Deity.

You want to petition to get deity added, that's all well and good, but that doesn't stop it being a tailed beast. --Hawkeye2701 (talk) 16:18, May 13, 2013 (UTC)

That's my point, it's being listed as a tailed beast only because the definition is fitting its appearance, it's a "beast" and has "tails" but the term Tailed Beasts refers to beings created from its chakra by Grandpa Hermit of Six. Classifying it as a tailed beast would be like classifying Naruto as a teenage blonde dubmass shinobi humanoid specimen from leaf village. Tailed Beasts' progeny is the "Ten-Tails" and the "Ten-Tails" can't be a tailed beast because there wasn't apparently anything before it. I take the classification as a race/species status, not definition of what something looks like. Hopefully you understand what I mean. TB are creations, Jubi has no creator for what we know. God are gods, they come in many forms, in fiction anyway--Elveonora (talk) 16:53, May 13, 2013 (UTC)

How about "Classification: Deity" and "Species: Plant" ? Perhaps we should create an article for deities in general and along with Ten-Tails, include also Jashin and the Death God there?--Elveonora (talk) 13:57, May 15, 2013 (UTC)

I would leave Jyuubi as a tailed beast, regardless if the other 9 are created from it or not. Currently, it's name is Jyuubi and even if it is the actual creator of all, it's still a tailed beast (as in a beast that has tails). Trying to reclassify it gets too deep and involved to the point it's not possible, especially considering we don't have information to confirm things such as it being a god, etc. And as for plant... just... no.--98.101.165.89 (talk) 14:12, May 15, 2013 (UTC)

Kurama stated it's a god who created universe and is source of all chakra. Who is more credible? It simply isn't a tailed beast, that would be like stating god if any exist must be humanoid because we were "so" created in "his" image. Stating Jubi is a tailed beast is simply giving it false attributes and objectification, something humans are good at. Tailed Beasts aren't true/original/official beings, but creations made with Creation of All Things thus again, Ten-Tails isn't one despite its NICKname--Elveonora (talk) 14:19, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
Kurama did, but that doesn't change it from being a tailed beast. As for god, that's assuming the god looks like us, and it's not a flying bowl of pasta, or something Lovecraftian. Stating it is a tailed beast means it is a Tailed Beast, a beast with tails (10 to be precise), and the only name it is officially known by follows the same pattern as the other Tailed Beasts. No attributes are being taken away or false given by making such a conventional classification, either. What says it isn't a tailed beast? Because I currently, personally, do not see the logic in your points. Why can't it be a Tailed Beast, despite having godlike levels of power, so much so that it created the universe?--98.101.165.89 (talk) 14:34, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
Because it wasn't created by Sage of Six Path using Creation of All Things?--Elveonora (talk) 14:53, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
Which doesn't mean it isn't a Tailed Beast. Classification can have things added to it as they're introduced. It is still a beast with tails, albeit a beast with tails that is stated to have created the world and etc. --98.101.165.89 (talk) 14:55, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
Then what the classification means to begin with? A description of what something looks like? Sensors are sensitive individuals who can sense chakra and identify by and even track others. Jinchuuriki are those with TB sealed into them, but Tailed Beasts aren't called "tailed beasts" because they are beasts with tails, are they? Cause that's not even true, Chomei has wings for example and Gyuki tentacles. Meaning what the term "classification" refers to is a group of individuals, Ten-Tails can't be a part of it--Elveonora (talk) 15:07, May 15, 2013 (UTC)

Point of clarification: The Ten-Tails is labeled as "Tailed Beast" because at the time of the pages creation, the Ten-Tails was simply known as the precurser of the tailed beasts and we weren't told that he was some sort of god. He is also, probably not some sort of god, at least in the context of the show, but a very old and pissed off demon. Ideally, it's classification should have been "Demon" from the start but there we go.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 16:08, May 15, 2013 (UTC)

Why do you assume otherwise? The last we were told was that it's a god who more or less created the whole Narutoverse (in-universe-wise, out it's Kishimoto of course :-I), so unless Kurama lied or doesn't know any better than we do, it's true and there's no reason to doubt it because we list what we are told not what we think. The most correct classifications I see for it are "deity, progenitor, creator" all meaning the same things contextually, nothing else. For the species, biologically it resembles a plant-animal hybrid, but I don't know a term for such a creature so... plant--Elveonora (talk) 16:36, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
Because we were also told it was a natural disaster, a giant, and a Deidarabotchi which is a fancy name for a demon. We've also called the First and Third Gods, but they weren't exactly deities.
Anyway we are arguing semantics and I honestly care very very little about this topic. I was just pointing out why the Ten-Tails was classified as a Tailed Beast.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 16:43, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
I have no issue with leaving the thing as a tailed beast it is just a generic classification we use for them, because essentially it is a name created by people for them and not what they are. Sometimes, you guys take things like classifications too literal, should we also then not classify the nine tailed beasts as demi gods? As where are you guys getting the information that the Ten-Tails is a plant? Just because it's mouth looks like one? The bulb on his back looks plant-like as well, doesn't make the beast a plant...--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 17:06, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
A lot of things are called "god" in this series, Elve. The Sage of the Six Paths, Hashirama, and even Hiruzen Sarutobi. That just means that's what people called them. Also, I cross referenced where you've been citing that the Ten-Tails "created the universe". No, it wasn't even stated to have created the planet. It was said that it was the origin of all life on the planet. Those are two very different concepts. Secondly, you seem to be overlooking the fact that the Tailed Beasts, throughout Naruto are referred to as demons. It is more likely, considering this is a Japanese series (and one of its names is Deidarabotchi), based on Japanese mythology, that the Ten-Tails is a demon, like Ultimate said, than some sort of "god". Either way, Tailed Beast does for a good description, but if it is absolutely demanded, we can change it to demon — but I don't think anyone is ready to classify it as a "god". And it is certainly not a freaking plant. Its mouth may look like one, and yes it has a bulb on its back, but that could just as well make it a freaking Venasaur. Let's leave speculation out of this. I really don't see why any of this matters, but, oh well. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 17:18, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
So Zero-Tails isn't a tailed beast (ignoring it's movie-only status, let's say it's canon) but Ten-Tails is? So if the term is just generic, then Nine-Tailed Naruto Clone and that thing the Uzumaki Clan leader sealed in anime should be one too. That's why the term isn't and shouldn't be generic, rather it has to refer to creation by grandpa sage of six. And no, Tailed Beasts aren't demi-gods because they have a creator, Jubi doesn't for what we know but itself is The Creator. @Ten Tailed Fox, it's been stated to be source of all chakra and progeny of everything that exists. For the plant thing, well, it has a physical form, there are biological kingdoms and since it resembles a plant-animal hybrid, it most closely looks like a something that would belong among plants since I don't think such a being does exist (plant-animal hybrid) in real life thus no term for it. EDIT: Hashirama, Sage of Six and Hiruzen were referred to as "god of shinobi" not "gods"--Elveonora (talk) 17:28, May 15, 2013 (UTC)

(Restarting the indents) No, canon or not, the Zero-Tails is not a Tailed Beast. It has no tails. Those are sorta required for Tailed Beasts. The Ten-Tails, as it so happens, has ten of them — more than any of the others, near as I can figure, so I'd say he fits that description pretty well. I don't know what you're talking about with the other two, so I can respond to those, but it would seem you're using anime-only content to justify classifying a demon as some sort of plant-god. Also, Elve, it really does say its the originator of life on the planet, not the planet, not the universe. Double-check your sources here. Not that it matters either way. Its not a plant, no matter how much it looks like one, and I don't think you're going to convince anyone here to label it as such. Might be a worthy triva note, but until Kishi comes out saying that the Ten-Tails is the pissed off "god of flowers", I'm not buying it. Its a demon. Beasts like it have been called demons througout the series, and it was even introduced as the "primordial demon". So yes, I'm not buying your argument. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 17:34, May 15, 2013 (UTC)

My point is that if we classify the Ten-Tails as a "tailed beast" then any monster with tails should we. We label species for Kurama as Kitsune, Shukaku as Tanuki so why not for the Ten-Tails? Also they were never stated to be demons, it's only what people of Narutoverse believed them to be, just like Suna believed Shukaku to be a corrupted priest, don't mix in-universe myths with out-universe facts please--Elveonora (talk) 17:42, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
Zero-Tails is a misnomer, I thought we were all clear on this...? You're also taking the word "generic" too literal, within the Narutoverse Tailed Beast does not mean the same thing as a creature with a tail, it in all cases refers to the (for want of another word) tailed beasts. I can understand maybe classifying it as "Primordial Tailed Beast" but I'm not for calling it a god.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 17:44, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
Well, I'm for calling it anything but a tailed beast, so you don't want to call it god but demon yes? There's nothing to suggest it's a demon or that demons exist in this fiction for that matter--Elveonora (talk) 17:46, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
Only reason I'd call any of them demons is because it'd sound cool, not because they were actual demons and that's what they were thought to be a long time ago (hence why everybody was X-Tail Demon Y). I don't think many traces of that are left on the wikia, with the exception of possibly Kurama who was called such.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 17:51, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
Finally... I thought I'm talking to a wall. It's a matter what is true, not what is thought to be true. They were also thought to be primitive and natural occurrences of sort, yet know it's false now. Things are getting changed and we update them as plot moves forward. And it's sad that I'm the only one who cares... if no one cared about anything, then this place would have looked badly, filled with fanon or not even existed anymore/in the first place. Also the article itself says that according to Kurama it's a god, so why not to list it as one? Another case it says tailed beasts were created from its chakra, yet we list it as one too. I sense lots of bias, leaving untrue information around for whatever reason (or lack of thereof it seems)--Elveonora (talk) 18:12, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
Would you be happy if, instead of corrupting this page, we update the other pages so everything matches and reflects how it should be? That makes more sense to me than putting frivolous things for the classification. Everyone cares, but we don't believe in the same things as you do. I, for one, don't think it is an issue and is how it should be, yet you do not. See the problem? --98.101.165.89 (talk) 18:21, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
Yes, the problem is that some are okay with it being false because it's generally accepted as such so there's not much need to change it. It's not a matter of belief, but what is true. The introduction section for Jubi used to say it's a demon, I changed that. Now I'm discussing or rather arguing as it seems that the classification is also being changed--Elveonora (talk) 18:26, May 15, 2013 (UTC)

(TMI - Too many indents). The problem is you're making a fuss about something that is not incorrect or false. Changing it from demon doesn't mean it's true -- you believe it is, but it had been called a demon before, so that wouldn't be incorrect. But by all account and standards that you're desiring, with a lot of delusion, then we should leave the classification completely blank as the Jyuubi is nothing that we know of. Except that what is actually true is that it is a Tailed Beast. It may be the original Tailed Beast, whose power created all the life on whatever scale you desire, but it still a tailed beast that follows the pattern that the other 9 have been built into by Kish. There's absolutely nothing wrong here, and that's not a belief.--98.101.165.89 (talk) 18:33, May 15, 2013 (UTC)

Sharingan has been stated by Kakashi to be delivered from Byakugan, Nagato has been believed by Jiraiya to have been Sage of Six Paths reborn and the Rinnegan is nothing but a mutation, doesn't make them true. Yes, TB were called demons, but they were/are still called and believed to be many things by people of Narutoverse, falsely I must add. Also can you link me to where the word "demon" is ever used in reference to Jubi? I don't remember such thing, while I remember it being called a god.--Elveonora (talk) 18:39, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
Kakashi mentioned that there are people who believe Sharigan may be derived. It was not an assertion or a matter-of-fact. Nagato;Jiraiya;Rinnegan -- extraneous. They are called demons and by all rights, they can be demons. Why can't they be demons? Demons aren't the same thing in other cultures as they are for Christians. Your points do not contribute to your argument, sadly. As for Jyuubi being called a demon, someone already pointed it out, and its also in the article as a name used to reference it (which was also pointed out above by someone). And, by your completely valid point -- just because its called a god, doesn't mean it is... right? You kinda contradicted yourself, there.--98.101.165.89 (talk) 18:45, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
Exactly! That's why I oppose the term "demon" everyone interprets it differently, also Kishimoto incorporates elements from many myths and religions into his manga + adding his own touch, so calling it a demon possibly causes misinterpretation between individuals. Kurama is more reliable than anyone because it's who knows how old, met Sage of Six Paths himself and is a "child" of the very creature we are discussing, so it should know more about it than anyone.--Elveonora (talk) 19:04, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
Its not a god anymore than it is a flower. It is the original tailed beast, which is why it has that classification. I, once again, don't see why this is an issue. I don't think we really need to get into the specifics of what the beast is, because it hasn't been explicitly stated. Kurama calls it a god, Obito called it a demon and the original tailed beast, Kurama also called it Daidarbotchi, which is a type of demon, so Tailed beast is going to have to do for now. Until Kishi gives us a more explicit classification of what it is, it is the most correct classification we have that doesn't dip into the realm of fan fiction and speculation. This is a pointless conversation that will get the site, nor the article, nowhere. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 19:08, May 15, 2013 (UTC)
How about progenitor of tailed beasts and we move Ten-Tails from [[1]] to similar cases or create a separate section for it from the other 9?--Elveonora (talk) 19:38, May 15, 2013 (UTC)

No, its not a similar case. Its the original Tailed Beast. Tailed Beast works just fine for now, until Kishi decides (if he decides) to tell us exactly what it is. The only thing the series tells us is the speculation of what it is from Obito (tailed beast, demon), Madara (demon), and Kurama's (god, demon) standpoint, and they're all conflicting, meaning you cannot pick and choose who is correct and who isn't. Other than that, we have noting concrete. Your speculation won't help bridge this gap. The classification we have right now is fine. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 03:56, May 16, 2013 (UTC)

Okay... I won't push on for the time being. I just wanted a change so it's clear there's a distinction between the 9 creatures and Jubi--Elveonora (talk) 11:51, May 16, 2013 (UTC)
