Why the heck are there seperate articles for each level of the menacing ball? MERGE OR DELETE! (talk) 23:07, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Actually, if I am correct about it's intention, it was made to follow the same properties of the category jutsu pages (such as Ninjutsu, Senjutsu, ect). That's really the only reason why this page survived the week it was made.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 02:05, 15 June 2009 (UTC)


I only listed it as a Tailed Beast Skill which it is and technically, it is the Tailed Beasts Skills article that should be categorized as a jutsu type. —This unsigned comment was made by Atrulean Starkiller (talkcontribs) .

What about Tailed Beasts Skills? Surely you aren't suggesting that the Menacing Ball isn't a Tailed Beast Skill? User:Atrulean Starkiller November 16, 2009 (UTC)

Menacing Ball is basically a subtype of Tailed Beast Skill. Tailed Beast Skill encompasses all things that are unique to the tailed beast, with Menacing Ball being subtype of the super thing. Or because...Snapper mentioned put it's basically a disambiguation.--TheUltimate3 (talk) 00:13, November 17, 2009 (UTC)

Tailed Beast Bomb

I want to make sure that, The Translators got this Right, Is it really called Tailed beast Bomb or is it just Menacing Ball?

Come on guys it clearly says bomb in the chapter.

According to wikipedia (and they usually have correct chapter names), this chapter's name is written in kanji as 尾獣玉, which according to them translates to Tailed Beast Ball. The 尾獣 is a given, and the 玉 is the same used in Danzō's Wind Release techniques and in Sasori's Akatsuki ring. It can be translated both as "ball" and "sphere", if I'm not mistaken. I would rather use sphere, but I can live with ball. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 00:51, December 3, 2010 (UTC)

Oh thanks for clearing that up. So the translator just used "bomb" to make it sound "cooler"?

Sort of. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 01:06, December 3, 2010 (UTC)


Since we know the name of it now, can we simply merge all the "menacing ball" pages here? All we need is to put an infobox here and string together the information from the other pages. Also, since the Eight-Tails said this is the ultimate attack of a tailed beast, should all of them be listed as users? Not sure if that would include the Ten-Tails, but definitely one through nine. I believe Bee and Yugito should also be listed, since they were shown to willingly transform and use the technique. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:06, December 3, 2010 (UTC)

For a jinchūriki, I understand performing a Tailed Beast Ball as turning into the Tailed Beast while maintaining control over it and then using the technique.

A none issue, in my opinion. Before Kishimoto decided to make them these, the Menacing Balls (I prefer this. Sounds more...well, Demon)where raw chakra fired. The anime simply followed suit. in my opinion, all that's changed now is that the Menacing Fire and Menacing Water Balls mixed elemental chakra with the yin-yang.--TheUltimate3 ~The User King ~ 01:30, December 6, 2010 (UTC)

@SimAnt: At first glance, I would agree with you, but I took a closer look at the Hachibi's Bijūdama and it also seems to be elemental. Electric to be exact. —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 12:12, December 6, 2010 (UTC)
That swirly thing that appears just before he releases it? Considering how elemental the Two-Tails' version looked, I don't think that would really count as electricity. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:34, December 6, 2010 (UTC)
I don't remember that having the electricity sound effect. ~SnapperTo 23:41, December 6, 2010 (UTC)

Well there's so many possibilities we can't really make a good conclusion right now... but seeing how Yugito did change into her full form before she used the fireball thing, it's probably related at least. Seeing how the Two-Tails is entirely covered in fire, maybe that's what its chakra looks like and it does have black or white properties, only invisible due to the chakra's fiery form? --GoDai (talk) 23:57, December 6, 2010 (UTC)

The Hachibi's bijūdama is clearly different from the Kyūbi's and has a distinctly electricity-looking effect around it. This cannot just be ignored. The carvings in the temple on the Island Turtle showed the Nibi and Hachibi doing their bijūdama and the Nibi' did have flames around it. —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 00:18, December 7, 2010 (UTC)
So does that mean we'll have to make a elemental child for every version of the tailed beast ball, or is it enough to list each tailed beast adds its own twist to it? Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 00:29, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

I don't think it's unreasonable to assume that the Biju have abilities other than Bijudama, but those three definitely don't seem to fit the standard for this attack.

  • This fits with how Killer Bee and the Nine-Tails have created the attack so far, BUT

Nine-Tails Trivia?

Could someone put a trivia saying about how the Nine-Tails charges his Beast Ball? (The bubble technique or whatever it was called in the old article) Questionaredude (talk) 01:18, December 8, 2010 (UTC)


As a math person, it bothers me every time I see "8:2 ratio." It is more proper to write it as "4:1" in its reduced form. However, I do recognize that this is harder to visualize, so I suggest saying "80% black and 20% white" or something of the sort. Is this just me?

Speaking of ratio... shouldn't this skill be classified as yin-yang release? Black symbolizes the spiritual (yin) part of Chakra and White the physical (yang) one, right? (talk) 00:43, February 23, 2011 (UTC)ChrisD

The problem is that Naruto only has the Yang chakra of the nine-tails so unless he is using his own yin chakra to supplant the lack of yin, we can't say till more info comes out. Besides why would Kishi call them black and white? The terms Yin and Yang seems to be used more frequently and should be the default names now. Perhaps to avoid having to reveal more about them earlier than he planned? While I agree its Yin and Yang we will have to wait for more info.Umishiru (talk) 00:51, February 23, 2011 (UTC)

Also, we can't put "80% black and 20% white" because the manga didn't state it like that. It was stated "8:2 ratio" so it stays like that. And just because Kishi said they were black and white, doesn't mean they are yin-yang. Unless it's said in manga, anime or databook, it's all speculation. SusanooUnleashed (talk) 03:29, April 5, 2011 (UTC)

Re: this

An encyclopedia reports the facts, it does not interpret them. What is a fact? The ball shrinks between when it first hits the barrier and when it punches through the other side.

Yin and Yang

It is actually the Black Chakra that is positive and the white is negative. I don't think this negative/positive chakra has anything to do with the yin/yang chakra. It seems to be a trait of the tailed beasts' chakra, as of now.--Alastar 89 (talk) 04:56, June 7, 2011 (UTC)

Four-Tailed Picture

Shukaku's Tailed Beast Ball

Is it possible that the reason Shukaku can't perform a tailed beast ball is because he is the only tailed beast to be able to have a voice when outside of it's jinchuriki (aka, has been released) and also doesn't have enough chakra to perform it? It might be that a tailed beast needs a certain amount of chakra to use the Tailed Beast Ball and Shukaku simply doesn't have enough to use it, hence his Wind Release: Drilling Air Bullet (which just seems to be his unique version of the Tailed Beast Ball, also possibly devised because he knows he doesn't have enough chakra to use a Tailed Beast Ball).

Excuse a bit of rambling in my post, but I hope I got my point across. --speysider (talk) 18:21, September 14, 2011 (UTC)

When Hachibi said "every bijuu knows it", it means Shukaku knows it too. --VolteMetalic (talk) 18:59, September 14, 2011 (UTC)
Knowing it doesn't mean they can use it. It's possible Shukaku saw the other beasts performing the technique, but does not have the chakra levels to use it. Remember, Shukaku only has one tail so he has a lot less chakra than the Two Tails, but higher than that of a ninja (probably the same as Kisame's Chakra level) --speysider (talk) 19:51, September 14, 2011 (UTC)

Rather, you should stop taking things too seriously. At the time when Shukaku battled Gama-what's-his-name, Kishi probably hadn't even made up the Tailed Beast Ball. Or he didn't use it because he didn't have time. If he would charge up the Beast Ball, Gama-what's-his-face would slice him to pieces. Look at the battle again, and you'll see that Shukaku/Ichibi were quite close to Gama-what's-his-momma all the time, eliminating any chance to charge his attack. Ruffy 20:09, September 14, 2011 (UTC)

Lol wtf? I'm trying to have a discussion here, I don't need your witty comments tyvm. It's most likely that Shukaku either doesn't have the chakra, or is too fixated on killing people (his bloodlust) to bother with the Tailed Beast Ball. Or simply put, he doesn't see a need to use it, as he has Drilling Air Bullet, which causes the same damage as a Tailed Beast Ball (although on just a slightly smaller scale), as Gamabunta mentioned that a few hits from the Drilling Air Bullet would be enough to kill him. --speysider (talk) 08:18, September 15, 2011 (UTC)

I know this is old but I want to quash this Shukaku thing now before more topics about this is made. 8-tails said every tailed beast can make it. That alone means he can use it. He wind release tech only follows the course of the fact that other tailed beasts can use nature manipulation(2,3,4 tails). Remember tailed beast ball is not the only thing a beast can do and was not practical at the time. Author wise, the tailed beasts were not fleshed out fully back when Shukaku made his debut and battle.Umishiru (talk) 01:44, December 17, 2011 (UTC)


Why isn't 10-tailed guy listed as a user? Its article says it's classified as a Tailed Beast, and all of them are said to be able to perform this technique. -- (talk) 18:41, December 22, 2011 (UTC)

Well, to be technical, the Tailed Beasts are the chakra beings formed from the splitting of the the Jubi, which are stated to know TBB. I'm not saying the Jubi can't, but that all nine of them were explicitly stated as users. Tailed Beast is the only classification we have that it would fit under I assume. Skitts (talk) 20:15, December 22, 2011 (UTC)

Two versions?

So, we all know about when Naruto used the TBB for the first time. He gathered chakra and swallowed it, only to spit it out again as a beam. But other users and even Naruto himself have shown that the chakra must not be swallowed to shoot it away, right? So, are those two different jutsu or just two forms of the TBB or what? Any suggestions? Seelentau 愛 22:58, January 25, 2012 (UTC)

I don't think it's necessarily two versions, just two ways that it's done. It seems if they're firing the ball there's no need to swallow although only Kurama and his host has ever swallowed the chakra and that's usually for the beam.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol 23:27, January 25, 2012 (UTC)

Kurama didn't swallow it in the manga in its fight with Naruto. And no it's the same technique, just a different way of using it. Skitts (talk) 00:05, January 26, 2012 (UTC)

The article has already said for the longest time that it can be fired right away, or ingested and then fired. The Nine-Tails has done it both ways. It's not the first time we've seen it without being swallowed.--Deva 27 14:55, January 26, 2012 (UTC)

The article did? ô.o Okay... well, apparantly I'm blind^^' Seelentau 愛 20:21, January 26, 2012 (UTC)


Would anyone be opposed to making a gallery of how the Bijūdama works? Such as the chakra being molded into the ball, the ball being swallowed, and then it being fired. I think the most recent episode with the technique would work perfectly. I don't think the current images really show how it works all that well. We could also have one of just the ball being fired.--Deva 27 00:02, January 27, 2012 (UTC)

What I mean is that in order to use the Tailed Beast Ball, the beast and the host must be in sync like B and Naruto were with their beasts, because TBB can only be done with a full transformation. As we don't know if the other hosts ever achieved that, they're not listed as the users, just the beasts. There's no such limitation on those other techniques.

Can we call the technique where madara stabs his susanoo sword through the tailed beast ball and throws it a separate technique, and call it a collaboration technique?-- (talk) 03:49, April 4, 2013 (UTC)

Not really. But yes? ._. How would we call it anyway?--Elveonora (talk) 13:40, April 4, 2013 (UTC)

positive black negative while?

Isn't that in reverse?--Elveonora (talk) 12:27, April 16, 2013 (UTC)

Nope. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:50, April 16, 2013 (UTC)

As stupid as it may sound, google results state that yin is negative and yang is positive, so was wondering why is that not the case with TBB--Elveonora (talk) 20:11, April 17, 2013 (UTC)

tailed beast ball in version 2?

episode 318 Bee in his version 2 used a tailed beast ball, and fukai. What do we do now...... it's contradicting what bee said. —This unsigned comment was made by‎ (talkcontribs) .

Not exactly. Someone who has full control of their tailed beast can preform the Tailed Beast Ball I believe. B has full control of the Eight-Tails.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 19:25, June 20, 2013 (UTC)

Bee said that you can only do it in full tailed beast form. He did it in version 2.

Well consider the Nine-Tails did it in Version 2, twice I might add, either there was a mistraslation somewhere or the anime got it wrong. I'm more inclined to assume a mistraslation, because of the aforementioned Nine-Tails doing it twice.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 22:14, June 20, 2013 (UTC)

Manga said that TBB can only be done in full Tailed Beast form, which is not quite right, since Naruto did it when he lost control over Version 2. At the time, we sort of danced around it by saying that if the beast can take over a transformation, they can do it without full transformation.

Wasn't V2 stated to be Tailed Beast power in human form or something akin to that?--Elveonora (talk) 11:35, June 21, 2013 (UTC)


Reopening this can of worms. I read the last trivia point and find it to be moot. Sora used this technique. He did not have Kurama itself sealed within him, he was just going psycho due to its chakra within him. But there is no doubt he used a weaker variation of the technique. He should be listed as a user. To my recollection, Naruto was listed as a user of his "Four-Tailed Menacing Ball", back before this technique was named, despite the fact that Kurama was actually in control of him. Let's not hold a double standard here. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 20:04, July 21, 2013 (UTC)

I'm sitting on a fence for this one. One part of me says "yes, put him as a user", another part of me says "this wasn't a TBB" --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 20:31, July 21, 2013 (UTC)
If you watch the way it is formed and then fired, its most certainly a Tailed Beast Bomb. Its just smaller. Also, given the fact that Sora only had part of the Nine-Tails chakra (or just due to the fact that the technique hadn't yet been explained fully in the manga at the time), that could account for the coloration. Either way, I say that if it came from his body, he used it. Given the fact that he didn't have Kurama inside of him to control him, we can't pin the blame on Kurama either. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 20:46, July 21, 2013 (UTC)

We used to list Naruto as a user at first. Either when B said you need to be in full transformation or before, we removed Naruto as a user because he wasn't in control, I remember that. We only added Naruto as a user again after he used it in his fight against the tailed beasts, after he and Kurama became friendly, the reason why Naruto's use has a manga only tag in it.

Naruto and Bee's Tailed Beast Ball

The combined one, when it exploded could be seen from the curve of the planet and the mountains dwarfed it. Why not add it? --SuperSaiyaMan (talk) 03:48, August 26, 2013 (UTC)

Image Change

What was wrong with the previous one(s)? --Questionaredude (talk) 15:25, September 14, 2013 (UTC)

Edit summary says that Gyūki's is "different". While I don't know what they're alluding to, Chōmei is a welcome change for me at least.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 15:38, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
tbh, the image that should really be there should be focused on the Tailed Beast Ball itself, I'm certain there are scenes which just show it without a Tailed Beast being in shot. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 16:09, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
I think the "different" is the vague lightning-like effect that happens when it creates the TBB. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 16:22, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
Isn't the lightning effect the white chakra part? After all, TBB is mix of black and white energies, so the color should be dark grey or so, canonically at least. The anime changes it constantly, they also once used it as black&white (correctly with Gyuuki) but then changed it into blue&red, then just fire, purple, yellow, they can't make their minds--Elveonora (talk) 16:29, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
Volume 55's cover shows the Tailed Beast Ball itself as black, while Naruto's "white chakra" seems to be yellow. That's probably the closest there is for a canon colouring.--BeyondRed (talk) 02:31, September 15, 2013 (UTC)


I can still see this technique in its infobox. Does it just take a while to update or something?--Elveonora (talk) 20:19, August 31, 2014 (UTC)

It's still there, any idea?--Elveonora (talk) 18:02, September 2, 2014 (UTC)

It's not there.--TheUltimate3 Eye of Rikudō (talk) 18:07, September 2, 2014 (UTC)
Not at the moment, but it will re-appear in a while, then be gone, only to re-appear once again.--Elveonora (talk) 18:25, September 2, 2014 (UTC)


Shouldn't Yagura be listed as a user of the technique, I understand why the other revived jinchuriki were not listed as users, but it wouldn't apply to Yagura. If you think about it, this make sense because only jinchuriki who have developed deep connection with their tailed beast would be able to use the true technique. According to the databook, manga, and anime Yagura was one of the few people to gain complete control over their tailed beast. As a perfect jinchuriki he would have been able to use at least this technique. --Tuxedo12 (talk) 00:19, April 4, 2015 (UTC)
