== genders ==
   
==Tenzo==

As proven many times, the gender classification refers to mental and social identity rather than biological status. It may be annoying I keep bringing this up, but it's true. I would stop if it weren't for instances like [[Swirl Zetsu]] which we list as male, but why don't we then the Tailed Beasts? The would be point "genderless pronouns" is moot since we can tell clearly that Kurama is a he both mentally and biologically. I see no feminine personality traits or physical features--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 12:12, August 28, 2013 (UTC)
I think Tenzo should be removed from the listing of those who have total control of a beast. Unlike the originator of his power, Yamato's control is far from mastery [[Special:Contributions/71.178.109.65|71.178.109.65]] ([[User talk:71.178.109.65|talk]]) 15:22, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

::Okay, but just curious, was Swirl Zetsu specifically referred to as "he" in the manga? On top of that, are we just going to ignore that the Five-Tails was given female voice in the anime?--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 12:45, August 28, 2013 (UTC)
  +
:::No clue about Swirl Zetsu, but I assume considering Zetsu is listed as male all of his clones would as well. And yes we are going to ignore the Five-Tails female voice, because Naruto also has a female voice actress, and yeah male. Not uncommon in Japan. Or in America to be honest.--[[User:TheUltimate3|'''TheUltimate3''']] [[File:Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol.svg|20px]][[User Talk:TheUltimate3| <sup>(talk)</sup>]] 13:13, August 28, 2013 (UTC)

::::Except all female voice actress for male characters in Naruto do sound male, this one doesn't, perhaps intentionally. For Swirl Zetsu, I beg Seelentau for investigation if the Japanese dialogue somehow suggests a gender, because anatomically "he" is barely anything--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 13:42, August 28, 2013 (UTC)

i don't think that the 0 tails should be on the list. that was something stupid the anime makers came up with, and we all know the anime isn't canon. besides how can it be a tailed beast if it has no tails? {{unsigned|68.163.252.93|04:12, 29 August 2009 (UTC)}}
+
So? Anatomically, Swirl Zetsu is less of a man than other Zetsus, he doesn't even have visible internal or external organs. Again, gender doesn't refer to genetics. I meant if Seelentau could check all the Swirl Zetsu dialogue if there's anything suggesting masculinity or male pronouns.--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 14:00, August 28, 2013 (UTC)
   
To add to that it is stated that the tailed beasts were a separation from the ten tails and only 9 were stated,Therefore it can be presumed that the so called zero tails is not a tailed beast and only a name the animators created to confuse viewers or to make it sound catchy.
+
:I'm not going into the physics and metaphysics on gender identity. I'm just saying, in Swirl Zetsu's case because Zetsu has been identified as male, that as a clone, Swirl was also identified as such.

Seriously? Now I feel offended and grossed.--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 22:02, August 28, 2013 (UTC)
   
i was remembering the fight of naruto and gaara, we have to admit that battle was awesome, but it came a question to my mind, why wen naruto and gamabunta transform together into the nine-tailed fox why didn´t the shukkaku reconiced the fox, as far as i now the tailed-beast would have been created by the same power, so they kinda are brothers and sisters only with different chakra levels, ofcurse i wouldn´t expect that they have´d a good relantionship, i think that it more similar to the relantionship that the akatsuki members have beetwen them; and if we look into the relantionships that the chinjuriki have beetwen when they encounterd like naruto with gaara and yukimaru.

First off what does 10tails even look like and I do think that we should find out more if possible
+
:The problem is that, although the anime has depicted them, they're technically not canon representations, because the song they were shown in (the tailed beast counting song) is an anime OVA and it would piss off a lot of users if we started swapping out images of tailed beasts that are "canon" with non-canon images from an OVA. Just to make people aware. However, I would have no objection to just removing the manga images for the tailed beasts and leaving the anime image there. --[[User:Speysider|Speysider]] <sup><small>[[User_talk:Speysider|Talk Page]] | [[User:Speysider/Images|My Image Uploads]] | [[User:Speysider/Tabber Code|Tabber Code]] | [http://youtube.com/LPSajuuk Channel]</small></sup> 18:27, September 18, 2013 (UTC)

It's better to keep those manga image for comparison since the anime and the manga images aren't from the original anime and the original manga.

Personally, I just like the manga images better. I'm not going to cut corners with that or find minuscule reasons like black backgrounds for the manga image to stay. I remember that part of the reason the whole tabs in the infobox was created was so that both ''factions'' could have their preference in terms of images as well as to correct discrepancies and all that. That being said, with the whole addition of part 1 and part 2 images I guess you could create some guidelines for it:
+
* usually it is manga vs. anime when there's a discrepancy in terms of appearance.
:::::It means that someone who just read the battle between Kakashi and Zabuza should be able to find all the information relevant to them, just like someone who just read the latest manga should be able to. For example: in the last 200 or so chapters, Garra hasn't been a jinchūriki. However, removing the jinchūriki classification from his article would remove information relevant to the manga before he lost Shukaku. Since this Wiki should be relevant to every point in the series, we keep the jinchūriki status and note that he lost the Shukaku. --[[User:ShounenSuki|ShounenSuki]] <sup>([[User_talk:ShounenSuki|talk]] | [[Special:Contributions/ShounenSuki|contribs]])</sup> 16:42, October 12, 2009 (UTC)
+
* if said person has a part II image for example but they are depicted incorrectly in the anime, part II image is moved to the article and manga image take precedence.
+
* there should also be a discretionary addition for images or forms where it can either be added to the infobox or moved to the article e.g. Shinju and Ultimate Summoning Beast.

I think that each case would be different, so consistency may need to be a bit more ''flexible'' in this case.--[[User:Cerez365|Cerez<small>365</small><sup>™</sup>]][[File:Hyūga Symbol.svg|20px]][[User talk:Cerez365|<sup>(talk)</sup>]] 15:11, September 23, 2013 (UTC)
Shouldn't the 10 tails be the main subject of the article since it's the original tailed beast? It would be different if there were 9 bijuu plus the 10 tails, but the 9 bijuu are just pieces of the Juubi. Shouldn't you set up this page so that the juubi is the main subject and then say it's chakra was divided which leads to the info of the 9 bijuu? {{unsigned|71.243.50.125|21:13, October 10, 2009}}
 
:That would put a major spoiler unnecessarily early on the page, and this is a entry article about the tailed beasts, that's what we have the [[Ten-Tailed Beast]] article for.

ShounenSuki, that's inconsistent on just two points : Its name and the fact that it has 10 tails. Other than that, your argument makes almost perfect sense. [[User:BlazeUchiha|<span style="color:8B 00 00 ">'''BlazeUchiha'''</span>]] 16:41, April 27, 2010 (UTC)

::@ BlazeUchiha: Tails and a "tail" name do not a Bijū make. As it is now, it seems "Bijū" is how the portions of the Ten-Tails' chakra were called. This means the Ten-Tails is, by definition, not a Bijū, as it is not a part of its own chakra.
 
::@ Omnibender: Could be, but that wasn't really my point. My point was, partly by using the term bakemono instead of Bijū, created a clear distinction between the Ten-Tails and the Bijū. The way he spoke about the Ten-Tails, he implied taht it isn't considered a Bijū itself. It is rather logical, if you think about it. No-one knows about the Ten-Tails, so it is impossible for them to include it with the Bijū. --[[User:ShounenSuki|ShounenSuki]] <sup>([[User_talk:ShounenSuki|talk]] | [[Special:Contributions/ShounenSuki|contribs]])</sup> 13:29, April 28, 2010 (UTC)
 
 
== Zodiac ==
 
 
I was just looking at the names of the beasts and, noticed.
 
*Monster Cat -> Chinese Zodiac: Rabbit -> Cat in Vietnam
 
*Monkey -> Chinese Zodiac: Monkey
 
*Dolphin Horse -> Chinese Zodiac: Horse
 
*Giant Ox -> Chinese Zodiac: Ox
 
Not sure about the others though; Shukaku, Giant Turtle, Slug, Horned Beetle, Fox. ''Maybe'' mention in article, about half of them being part of zodiac is a not likely a coincidence. [[User:Simant|Simant]] ([[User talk:Simant|talk]]) 18:18, October 11, 2009 (UTC)
 
:I'm sorry, but this could easily be a coincidence. In fact, it would be ridiculous if it were anything other than that.

shouldn't all the bijuu equal power and strength, other than 10 tails, since the 9 bijuu are but equal portions of chakra? --[[User:NarSasGaaNej|NarSasGaaNej]] ([[User talk:NarSasGaaNej|talk]]) 06:11, October 20, 2009 (UTC)
 
 
They had never said that the Tailed-Beasts are ''equal'' portions of the Ten-Tails, but merely that they are portions of the monster. We don’t know how much each got other than the Nine-Tails, which must have gotten the largest portion of chakra and strength.
 
 
But while we are speaking of the tailed-beast ranking system, Suki? Can I ask of you of a direct translation of what Kisame said during the time Killer Bee was charging at him in version 2? From what he said, there could be some merit to the whole tailed-ranking system, but I could have just merely read a bad translated manga release.
 
 
“Well, it is only one tail short of 9 after all...it must take an amazing amount of control to keep those chakras in check...”
 
 
That is what he said on the release I read, and from he said there, it makes me think there could be something to each tail means more stronger, but I could be wrong at this point. I also point out that the Samehada can only eat 6 tails of the Eight-Tails’ chakra at a time, point more towards the rank system, but that could also be at the 6 tails thing could be only from the Eight-Tails’ strength and not the beasts in general. --[[User:Juubi no Ryuu|Juubi no Ryuu]] ([[User talk:Juubi no Ryuu|talk]]) 22:37, November 15, 2009 (UTC)

B) If they can change form, then it is possible they can change their DNA, though I am also not sure on that account. C) I didn't mean just unfriendly, Shukaku gives no attention to the chakra of the most powerful of the Tailed-beasts, either it thinks it can defeat the fox, or it is just unfamiliar with the fox and it's chakra, which would make sense seeing as the Sage "sent the nine chakras across the lands" or something like that.

== Can they die when outside of their hosts? ==
 
 
The thing I was wondering was if the tailed beasts can die. I know that they can die if they are inside of their hosts, such as Kabuto tried with Naruto and [[Kurotsuchi]] advized for Bee and Naruto, but what about when they are not tied to a human? They are pure chakra, and chakra is energy, and the laws of physics state that energy is never destroyed, only converted. Granted you can permantently defeat them by yanking their sould out (like with the Fox in [[Minato Namikaze]] had/could(?) go all the way. But can they die, for good?
 
:I ask since this would have solved a lot of problems if the beasts could be killed.

[[User:Thomas Finlayson|Thomas Finlayson]] ([[User talk:Thomas Finlayson|talk]]) 20:39, June 11, 2010 (UTC)
 
 
::In standard Japanese folklore, no. Gods and Demons typically are immortal, which is why they usually have to be sealed in some sacred shrine, tree or something when they go wild. So if Naruto follows this standard, then the tailed beasts are indeed immortal, unless you kill their host then they die right along with them. Now if this isn't the case, it is extreamly possible that it is just impossible for a normal person to kill one. They are creatures of pure, foul, and powerful chakra giving solid form. If they are killable, it would probably be really really hard, and would most likely result in a country being leveled.

:: Basically, a tailed beast can be killed, just like any other creature. They may be creatures of pure energy, however they still have physical, living breathing forms. Just their sheer power makes it near impossible for the average shinobi to kill them, perhaps a shinobi like A or Kisame could possibly due it, noting the fact they have chakra levels said to be similar to tailed-beasts. And the fact that they could be seperated from their chakra, as shown with the Jubi and Kyubi, they could easily be killed (though there is no known case), sealed away, or in the Kyubi's case, as dead as a will with no power can be inside a host. Also, it was my understanding that Japanese mythology Shinto, Kami and yokai WERE considered immortal, or at least Kami were, until the introduction of Buddhism in which they all become part of the cycle, birth, life, death, then rebirth? --[[User:Juubi no Ryuu|Juubi no Ryuu]] ([[User talk:Juubi no Ryuu|talk]]) 23:38, June 16, 2010 (UTC)
 
 
well,even if they had no host,yes,they could probaly still b "killed"...but their energy(chakra) would still remain,,,4 example,after the 9-tails rampage(yes i'm referin 2 sora),he left a part behind...
 
 
Most likely, since they are composed entirely of chakra, the only way to kill the would be to "eat" them, and even then you would need both enough of a resistance to their chakra to survive, and a way to vent it to prevent yourself from dying due to chakra overload, unless you could hold tailed beast levels of chakra
 
 
== Trivia ==
 
 
So it’s state that Five-Tailed Dolphin Horse and the Seven-Tailed Horn Beetle where captured prior to Part II. That I’m ok with, but I think under trivia even though the time in which the tailed beasts where captured is not mentioned, it may be actually prior to the start of Part I.
 
 
Kisame in episode 10 of Shippuden, made the comment about how the [[Sealing Technique: Phantom Dragons Nine Consuming Seals|extraction process may take longer]] due to Orichimaru not being with the Akatsuki any longer and since Orichimaru was no longer part of the group in Part I, it thus suggests that Orichimaru helped the Akatsuki with the other two tailed beasts. Therefore the Akatsuki must have cought those two tailed beast before the start of the series. {{unsigned|41.27.5.156}}
 
 
Not really, it could mean that it would take longer because the technique is meant to be used with 10 members performing it instead of 9, Orochimaru simply being the example of the tenth member, likely because he still has his ring, and we still have no idea what they actually do. Zetsu also implied once that the fewer people performing, the longer it takes.

::::::::But with Torune, we have good reason to believe it's an alias, unlike the Tailed Beasts. If Tenzo was Yamato's actual name instead of an old codename, we'd use it.

:In my opinion, the situation with the tailed beasts is different from using ''Torune Aburame'', but definitely similar.
 
:With Torune, we have two names with two different functions. One is his codename: ''Torune'' and one his his family name: ''Aburame''.
 
:With the tailed beasts, let's use the Eight-Tails as an example, we also have two names. One is their "tails" name: ''Eight-Tails'' and the other is a description: ''Giant Ox''.
 
:However, we cannot just assume this description is part of their full name, especially not in cases where we thought of the description ourselves. The Nine-Tails is called a "demon fox," but it has also been called monster fox, nine-tailed fox, and a bunch of other things. None of which can be considered the fox's name.

In all technicality, Naruto doesn't have control over the Nine-Tails at all, just its power. If I remember correctly, Danzo stated his list; "Only four shinobi in history could control the '''tailed beasts''': The First Hokage, Madara, Killer Bee, and Yagura." Naruto can't exactly control the Nine-Tails itself like Madara can, he was only able to take away its power and lock it away. Even its power he doesn't have full control over, where as Killer Bee demonstrates in the latest chapter his ability to use the Eight-Tails chakra as if it were "his own arms and legs". --[[User:Juubi no Ryuu|Juubi no Ryuu]] ([[User talk:Juubi no Ryuu|talk]]) 23:52, November 7, 2010 (UTC)

To be sealed in the pot the third raikage used, the beast has to respond to it's name.

Is it really a Tailed Beast? Well, maybe we have more evidences appointing to yes, but, from all I knew, I thought tailed beasts are enourmous monsters of chakra, that have different abilities and a different number of tails, created by Sage of Six Paths, from Ten-Tails Chakra. That primordial monster, is enormous contruct of chakra, but, it is not created by Sage. This get in my mind, when I was thinking about Six Paths of Pain and Six Paths Techinique. Six Paths of Pain, is just a style that Nagato created to use the latter. Tailed Beast are just a "new style of Ten-Tails" created by the Sage. Six Paths of Pain, can be even considered a Six Paths Techinique, but Six Paths Techinique is not Six Paths of Pain. Tailed Beast are nicknamed that, not the Ten-Tails, so they are Tailed Beast but the First Monster not. Like Kurama said, it is like a force of nature that acts by instinct, and tailed beast have intelligence. They're different things, so, Ten-Tails can not be considered a Tailed Beast.

I propose the idea of changing some articles where we call some of the tailed beasts "it, its", namely the Nine-Tails, Four-Tails, Shukaku, and Eight-Tails (going to be weird calling them actual names) since recent chapters have been calling them by gender terms, the Four-Tails refers himself as a king, the Four and Eight-Tails refer to the Nine-Tails as a he several times, and the fact that the tailed beasts have personalities proposes that they may view themselves as a male or female, or may have a male or female personality, sorta similar to Digimon where they may not have the physical gender parts, but do have the personalities of either a male or female. --[[User:Juubi no Ryuu|Juubi no Ryuu]] ([[User talk:Juubi no Ryuu|talk]]) 19:24, December 26, 2011 (UTC)

I know this is late, but I gotta ask, isn't the "gender issue" based upon your opinion? I mean, since this is a wiki, using something like an opinion, no matter how many facts could support it, doesn't automatically make it true, right? So your adding something '''that wasn't actually stated as fact''' and was '''never clarified''' as a fact on a wiki? Since your an admin (and it's obviously to late) I guess my statement might be pointless, but this is supposed to be a wiki. For example, Shukaku, "He is similar to a male" I think isn't really good enough, especially since he was never stated to be a male and is a mass of energy. While its nice for fans to think of this stuff, in the end, a wiki shouldn't be a place where a theory or idea of a fan should be stated as a fact. There was nothing obvious about their sex overall (at most, hinting) and again, they are just masses of chakra, no matter how complex.--[[User:Deathmailrock|<span style="color:Black;font:normal 12pt comic, fantasy">DMR</span>]]-[[User_talk:Deathmailrock|<span style="color:Black;font:normal 12pt comic, fantasy">TALK</span>]] 08:24, December 12, 2014 (UTC)

We have on the triva section that when there is enough of a tailed beasts chakra present, it will make a new but similar entity. However, this isn't an ability excusive to the tailed beasts, humans can do this too. Minato and Kushina did this with Naruto as well. I am not sure about Orochimaru so I won't use him as an example.

On a highly technical level, the Demonic Statue stops being a tailed beast when it no longer has the demon chakra that makes it the one eyed giant tree monster horror show. It basically becomes a giant sorta-dead mutated tree woman thing. Getting on in higher technicalities, the Ten-Tails isn't even a tailed beast because the tailed beasts were made after the Sage of the Six Paths made them.

genders Edit

As proven many times, the gender classification refers to mental and social identity rather than biological status. It may be annoying I keep bringing this up, but it's true. I would stop if it weren't for instances like Swirl Zetsu which we list as male, but why don't we then the Tailed Beasts? The would be point "genderless pronouns" is moot since we can tell clearly that Kurama is a he both mentally and biologically. I see no feminine personality traits or physical features--Elveonora (talk) 12:12, August 28, 2013 (UTC)

It would be wise to not go into this subject as it is just a can of worms waiting to explode.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 12:21, August 28, 2013 (UTC)
Okay, but just curious, was Swirl Zetsu specifically referred to as "he" in the manga? On top of that, are we just going to ignore that the Five-Tails was given female voice in the anime?--Elveonora (talk) 12:45, August 28, 2013 (UTC)
No clue about Swirl Zetsu, but I assume considering Zetsu is listed as male all of his clones would as well. And yes we are going to ignore the Five-Tails female voice, because Naruto also has a female voice actress, and yeah male. Not uncommon in Japan. Or in America to be honest.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 13:13, August 28, 2013 (UTC)
Except all female voice actress for male characters in Naruto do sound male, this one doesn't, perhaps intentionally. For Swirl Zetsu, I beg Seelentau for investigation if the Japanese dialogue somehow suggests a gender, because anatomically "he" is barely anything--Elveonora (talk) 13:42, August 28, 2013 (UTC)
I did mention "clone"...--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 13:49, August 28, 2013 (UTC)

So? Anatomically, Swirl Zetsu is less of a man than other Zetsus, he doesn't even have visible internal or external organs. Again, gender doesn't refer to genetics. I meant if Seelentau could check all the Swirl Zetsu dialogue if there's anything suggesting masculinity or male pronouns.--Elveonora (talk) 14:00, August 28, 2013 (UTC)

I'm not going into the physics and metaphysics on gender identity. I'm just saying, in Swirl Zetsu's case because Zetsu has been identified as male, that as a clone, Swirl was also identified as such. I repeat I am not and will not get into the physics and metaphysics of gender identity.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 14:04, August 28, 2013 (UTC)
I won't encourage this discussion either, since it's simply not up to us to decide if any character is male or female. Seelentau 愛 14:41, August 28, 2013 (UTC)
Sounds wise... for the forthcoming future, here I depart again with a tail in between my legs. Just please confirm or deny Swirl Zetsu being male or anything for that matter, so it goes in accordance with what you just wrote above instead of "us" deciding that he "must" be male since Zetsu is one. They are more of a siblings than clones. And since Orochimaru "wasn't" (was in fact) a female biologically in Part I. it should be even so it's not hypocritical.--Elveonora (talk) 14:53, August 28, 2013 (UTC)
There is no "he" or "she" in Japanese. Seelentau 愛 15:03, August 28, 2013 (UTC)
And unless the third databook entry has been wrong for the past 2 or 3 years, Zetsu was listed as male.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 15:06, August 28, 2013 (UTC)
The thing is, he wasn't. Seelentau 愛 18:04, August 28, 2013 (UTC)

Young Biju image Edit

Why was a 1080p png image replaced by an image of inferior quality across the tailed beasts articles without discussion ? I'm posting this here rather than 9 times over all the tailed beasts articles. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 19:53, September 12, 2013 (UTC)

well feel free to replace those images with 1080 higher res versions.--RexGodwin (talk) 20:43, September 12, 2013 (UTC)

Manga imagesEdit

Ok, seriously? Do we need these anymore? We have perfectly fine anime images of the exact same thing, without the awkward borders/backgrounds, plus Jinchuriki in the images...and its not like any of the Biju have any massive differences between the mediums, they look exactly the same..--RexGodwin (talk) 22:17, September 13, 2013 (UTC)

What reason is there to keep both ? The anime depicted the tailed beasts without any differences so I have no idea why we've kept the manga image this long. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 22:58, September 13, 2013 (UTC)

Well i'd say the previous anime images of the lesser seen Bijū weren't as good as the artbook images, but now that we literally have the exact images in animated form, i don't see a reason.--RexGodwin (talk) 23:13, September 13, 2013 (UTC)

Wait, are you referring to the one on this page. 'Cuz that's the one I was talking about. The ones on the Bijū's individual pages, I'm not so sure about. Bring it up on their talk pages. Saves confusion. Or be more specific in the future. I thought you were referring to the one we have of them collectively in a group from the artbook on this page, which is staying until the anime provides us some better rendition. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Yamagakure Symbol 23:49, September 13, 2013 (UTC)

Oh. Yeah i meant as their infobox ones. Agreed about on this page, the manga one is good since it shows all of them.--RexGodwin (talk) 23:56, September 13, 2013 (UTC)

Keep in mind the decision that is made here will most likely effect many more characters and should also have influence in the previous discussion about the Part I and Part II tabs. Carry on.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 00:21, September 14, 2013 (UTC)

Since this will effect at least nine pages and to keep it all in one place I'll make my comment here rather than the individual pages. I agree with no longer needing the manga image in the infoboxs of each Tailed Beast. The anime has perfect representations of each now. Arrancar79 (talk) 17:39, September 18, 2013 (UTC)

The problem is that, although the anime has depicted them, they're technically not canon representations, because the song they were shown in (the tailed beast counting song) is an anime OVA and it would piss off a lot of users if we started swapping out images of tailed beasts that are "canon" with non-canon images from an OVA. Just to make people aware. However, I would have no objection to just removing the manga images for the tailed beasts and leaving the anime image there. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 18:27, September 18, 2013 (UTC)
Fortunately in this case it seems they were nearly exact representations of the depiction in the manga for what it's worth. Arrancar79 (talk) 20:58, September 18, 2013 (UTC)y
Point of Clarification: The mange image we use for all the Tailed Beast have not appeared in the mange either, they all came from a fanbook/artbook. That is just about the same as the omake song the images in question came from. Carry on.-TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 21:44, September 18, 2013 (UTC)

It's better to keep those manga image for comparison since the anime and the manga images aren't from the original anime and the original manga. I think the animators who did the song took those artbook images for this work. That's all Shakhmootssign_zps2a261e68.png(Contact) 21:47, September 18, 2013 (UTC)

I contend that the omake image is as canon as any other episode because it's a true representation of their likeness, the quality is high and the fan/artbook images have their jinchūriki in the picture as well. If they stay then it seems like they should be second, I mean why not put the higher quality image first. Anime is the format used throughout the wiki with few exceptions like Hanzō and A, which I think should be reversed as well but I don't want to get into that here. Arrancar79 (talk) 22:31, September 18, 2013 (UTC)

yeah who cares what the image is from, its the perfect representation of the manga images, but in animated form and without awkward borders and other characters.--RexGodwin (talk) 22:52, September 18, 2013 (UTC)

Well no one has responded so im gonna go ahead and remove the manga images.--RexGodwin (talk) 13:47, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

As you were the one to start it, nor have I seen a agreement reached, you are not in a position to decide the discussion is closed.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 14:25, September 23, 2013 (UTC)
Now that that's been taken care of, how about we do actually come to a conclusion, because I would like this, and the rest of the "Anime/Manga" images to reach a ending.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 14:28, September 23, 2013 (UTC)
I don't see a need to come to a conclusion. There's no need to take out the manga image at all. The previous depiction of the tailed beast weren't inaccurate, it's just that we wanted both versions of the image in the infoboxes. The same goes for the current Kage (except A). If you prefer the anime one, simply click on the tab.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 14:34, September 23, 2013 (UTC)
And I've been trying (hard) to point out the potential problems with having some articles having two images for anime/manga, others having two images for Part I and II, then others having a single image, then others having images of forms.
As the self appointed Consistency Admin Guy Person(tm) that just screams a problem. And I've been trying to have that discussion for months and nobody seems to want to talk about it.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 14:54, September 23, 2013 (UTC)
And if memory serves me correctly, I got into an argument with ShounenSuki about the previous pictures of the tailed beasts and the reason they ended up with two images was because such things like color was off (Eight-Tails), slime looked off (Six-Tails), ect.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 14:59, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

Personally, I just like the manga images better. I'm not going to cut corners with that or find minuscule reasons like black backgrounds for the manga image to stay. I remember that part of the reason the whole tabs in the infobox was created was so that both factions could have their preference in terms of images as well as to correct discrepancies and all that. That being said, with the whole addition of part 1 and part 2 images I guess you could create some guidelines for it:

  • usually it is manga vs. anime when there's a discrepancy in terms of appearance.
  • if said person has a part II image for example but they are depicted incorrectly in the anime, part II image is moved to the article and manga image take precedence.
  • there should also be a discretionary addition for images or forms where it can either be added to the infobox or moved to the article e.g. Shinju and Ultimate Summoning Beast.

I think that each case would be different, so consistency may need to be a bit more flexible in this case.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 15:11, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

Family Edit

I noticed that each Tailed Beast has the Sage of the Six Paths listed as "Creator" on the family part of their infoboxes. But should the other Tailed Beasts be listed on their pages as well? For example:

In the infobox of Shukaku:

Hagoromo Otsutsuki (Creator)

Matatabi (Sibling)

Isobu (Sibling)

Son Goku (Sibling)

Kokuo (Sibling)

Saiken (Sibling)

etc... --RIkudo (talk) 17:42, December 20, 2013 (UTC)

Ten-TailsEdit

Is it really a Tailed Beast? Well, maybe we have more evidences appointing to yes, but, from all I knew, I thought tailed beasts are enourmous monsters of chakra, that have different abilities and a different number of tails, created by Sage of Six Paths, from Ten-Tails Chakra. That primordial monster, is enormous contruct of chakra, but, it is not created by Sage. This get in my mind, when I was thinking about Six Paths of Pain and Six Paths Techinique. Six Paths of Pain, is just a style that Nagato created to use the latter. Tailed Beast are just a "new style of Ten-Tails" created by the Sage. Six Paths of Pain, can be even considered a Six Paths Techinique, but Six Paths Techinique is not Six Paths of Pain. Tailed Beast are nicknamed that, not the Ten-Tails, so they are Tailed Beast but the First Monster not. Like Kurama said, it is like a force of nature that acts by instinct, and tailed beast have intelligence. They're different things, so, Ten-Tails can not be considered a Tailed Beast. MaskedManMadara (talk) 13:57, January 17, 2014 (UTC)

Discussed before. To long didn't read: it probably shouldn't be, but it's the best classification that can be given to it without going stupid.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 14:11, January 17, 2014 (UTC)

Chakra has chakra? Edit

So I don't understand. It says the tailed beasts are chakra monsters, but at the same time they have chakra. The reason why I bring thi up is because in chapter 666 obito ripped of a 'portion' of the eight tails and one tail. Does that mean he ripped off a part of themselvees, as in their consciousness, or just their chakra?--AsianInvasion711 (talk) 23:05, March 1, 2014 (UTC)

The tailed beasts are made of immense reserves of chakra, that's why they are called Chakra Monsters. For now, all we know is that Obito took a fragment of chakra from the One-Tail and the Eight-Tails. We do not know wheter there is some consciousness in these fragments.--JOA20 (talk) 23:22, March 1, 2014 (UTC)

You are taking that too literary. There were created from chakra. But they have real physical bodies which create chakra and can even run out if chakra and have to restore it using meditation or whatever, like Shinobi.--Elveonora (talk) 00:18, March 2, 2014 (UTC)

Summoning Edit

The Ten-Tails was also subjected to the use of Summoning Technique just like Kurama. We need to add that to the Trivia section--MERCURIOUS (talk) 19:01, July 15, 2014 (UTC)

Chapter 663 page 13. Madara summoned it and then sealed it inside of him.--MERCURIOUS (talk) 15:59, July 16, 2014 (UTC)
He didn't summon it, he remade it.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 16:09, July 16, 2014 (UTC)
What are you on about Ulti? The Ten-Tails was summoned as Gedo Mazo--Elveonora (talk) 16:09, July 16, 2014 (UTC)
He actually did summon it. After the Statue absorbed the beasts, it vanished in a blast of smoke. Later on, when Madara wanted to become the jinchūriki, he is shown making a handseal and summoning it back to the battlefield. ~ Ten Tailed Fox 20px 16:22, July 16, 2014 (UTC)
Also this. We were told not once that Rinnegan user can summon the Ten-Tails. Explanation for that? Don't ask, no idea, but it's true--Elveonora (talk) 16:27, July 16, 2014 (UTC)
Examples please? I can only recall the pulling of the beasts into the statue, a bunch of crying that Naruto and Sasuke were dying, and then Madara casually jamming the Ten-Tails into his gut.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 16:44, July 16, 2014 (UTC)
/LookedMySelf, Ah yes. The Ten-Tails reformed someplace else and Madara brought it back once it was done. I stand correct corrected.--TheUltimate3 Allied Shinobi Forces Symbol (talk) 16:49, July 16, 2014 (UTC)

TB Manga images Edit

I can see this has been discussed before, but I'll try again. How about removing the TB manga images from their respective pages, and adding them someplace else on their page. And then keep the images with their Jinjuricki on them. What do you say? --Kasan94 Nara Symbol Talkpage 20:21, July 29, 2014 (UTC)

I agree with this. I think it's necessary to depict the manga image with their jinchuriki present, and moving the image from the infobox to an appropriate section of the article would be the best move. Especially since we've now removed Konan's manga image due to it being inconsistent, this is the same. --SuperSajuuk Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 20:27, July 29, 2014 (UTC)

Bump --Kasan94 Nara Symbol Talkpage 13:02, July 30, 2014 (UTC)

I tried doing the edit on the Shukaku page, What do you think? --Kasan94 Nara Symbol Talkpage 14:24, July 31, 2014 (UTC)
That looks good! Just be aware that it may not always be possible to use the same structure, but try to get as close as possible :) --SuperSajuuk Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 15:39, July 31, 2014 (UTC)
I will try that, can you revert those pics where the jinjuricki's where cut out? Just use this as a reason for it. --Kasan94 Nara Symbol Talkpage 17:32, July 31, 2014 (UTC)
Why are these manga images being kept in the articles? ~SnapperTo 17:44, July 31, 2014 (UTC)
They were kept in the infoboxes for years, plus they are a good depiction of the tailed beast with their most recent jinchuriki. If anime versions of the manga pics exist, then they can be used, but until that time, the manga image can be used. --SuperSajuuk Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 17:46, July 31, 2014 (UTC)

I have now moved them all, if you could take a look it would be great, since some of them I'm not to sure about how I placed them. --Kasan94 Nara Symbol Talkpage 17:59, July 31, 2014 (UTC)

Why is it important to have a picture of the beast with their host?
Plus, the pictures aren't exactly accurate to scale. ~SnapperTo 18:03, July 31, 2014 (UTC)
@Kasan: The placement looks good! :)
@Snapper: Because it makes sense to showcase a picture of a TB with their most recent host, especially as it's mentioned in the background of every TB article. --SuperSajuuk Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 18:04, July 31, 2014 (UTC)
Lots of Background sections mention characters with different characters. Doesn't mean they need a dedicated image. It would be one thing if the manga depictions had some minor detail the anime got wrong, but this seems like displaying the images for the sake of displaying the images. ~SnapperTo 18:23, July 31, 2014 (UTC)
I think, with it being the tailed beasts, and that we have such good images to show it, that it makes a lot of sense to have them there. --Kasan94 Nara Symbol Talkpage 20:40, July 31, 2014 (UTC)

speech trivia Edit

As proven by latest chapter, they clearly speak words, since not only do they move mouths but also everyone could hear them. In the anime tho, they speak through telepathy instead or so, that's what I suppose the trivia is trying to say, unless there's an inconsistency in the manga itself, not just manga and anime--Elveonora (talk) 16:19, September 23, 2014 (UTC)

I wasn't saying they don't speak words. What I meant was how they speak is inconsistent. This is only in the anime. They speak normally like any other character in the manga. --OmegaRasengan (talk) 17:05, September 23, 2014 (UTC)

Genders 2 Edit

This discussion should not have been stopped short last time. I think what elveo was saying is correct and there genders should be added. Munchvtec (talk) 17:10, September 23, 2014 (UTC)

I think we should proceed when clear evidence is there, but yeah... :-I--Elveonora (talk) 19:47, September 23, 2014 (UTC)
And I also agree. We've got beasts with obvious sexual dimorphism, which is the equivalent of Kishi displaying their genitalia for all to see. Doubt it'll get through, but there it is. ~ Ten Tailed Fox Rinnegan Sasuke 20:38, September 23, 2014 (UTC)
If no one gives a good enough reason why we should be ignorant in span of 3 days, I will proceed to make the changes--Elveonora (talk) 09:37, September 24, 2014 (UTC)

sounds good, i just thought id bring it up again. Munchvtec (talk) 13:28, September 24, 2014 (UTC)

Last opportunity to disagree--Elve [Moderator] Talk Page|Contribs 10:31, September 27, 2014 (UTC)

I know this is late, but I gotta ask, isn't the "gender issue" based upon your opinion? I mean, since this is a wiki, using something like an opinion, no matter how many facts could support it, doesn't automatically make it true, right? So your adding something that wasn't actually stated as fact and was never clarified as a fact on a wiki? Since your an admin (and it's obviously to late) I guess my statement might be pointless, but this is supposed to be a wiki. For example, Shukaku, "He is similar to a male" I think isn't really good enough, especially since he was never stated to be a male and is a mass of energy. While its nice for fans to think of this stuff, in the end, a wiki shouldn't be a place where a theory or idea of a fan should be stated as a fact. There was nothing obvious about their sex overall (at most, hinting) and again, they are just masses of chakra, no matter how complex.--DMR-TALK 08:24, December 12, 2014 (UTC)

They are not just masses of energy for the last time. And I don't see how sexual dimorphism is my opinion, unless you want to pretend that something that is clearly biologically male is sexless.--Elve [Moderator] Talk Page|Contribs 10:52, December 14, 2014 (UTC)
Where was the male or female sex organs shown? And also, it was STATED that they were masses of chakra, For crying out loud, if that's the case, all the Biju could look male, including the 2-tails--DMR-TALK 02:33, December 15, 2014 (UTC)
Bull is a male cattle, cow is a female cattle, Gyuki is a bull, therefore male. You don't need a cock and balls in your face to know that, so stop before I get angry--Elve [Moderator] Talk Page|Contribs 16:07, December 17, 2014 (UTC)

Chakra-made consciences Edit

We have on the triva section that when there is enough of a tailed beasts chakra present, it will make a new but similar entity. However, this isn't an ability excusive to the tailed beasts, humans can do this too. Minato and Kushina did this with Naruto as well. I am not sure about Orochimaru so I won't use him as an example. I already put it in the triva section in the Chakra page of the wiki, but I am wondering if we should remove it from the triva section here or just rewrite it. --Popopoyotl (talk) 19:11, November 6, 2014 (UTC)

I think we should discuss it here first so we can thoroughly discuss it and rewrite it. Yeah, Oro is a different case. :) ~IndxcvNovelist talkcontribswatty 19:14, November 6, 2014 (UTC)
I figured as much for Oro. That seemed to be a more of a soul stealing thing going on. With Minato and Kushina specifically, Minato states that he would be sealing their remaining chakra into Naruto to help him later on with Kurama. Unless there is something I missed with that, Minato and Kushina are in the same case as the rest of the tailed beasts in which they created a new conscience with their chakra....Chakra is just weird. --Popopoyotl (talk) 19:20, November 6, 2014 (UTC)
The difference is, Minato and Kushina's chakra was temporary and ran out shortly after they manifested in Naruto's mind. The tailed beasts' chakra within Naruto appears to be able to regenerate infinitely, even though we're told he only has a small amount of each beast's chakra besides Kurama.--BeyondRed (talk) 19:49, November 6, 2014 (UTC)

Instead of trying to build a theory out of this, just state what has happened in the manga as is and leave the theorizing part to the reader. NoJutsu (talk) 04:16, November 30, 2014 (UTC)

DB4 Edit

It refers to the Gedo Mazo as a tailed beast here.For the Six Paths Ten-Tails Coffin Seal, it says "Taking the ten bodies of the tailed beasts into oneself..." ~•WS7125[Mod]WindStar7125 TaskWindStar7125's Task 04:03, November 30, 2014 (UTC)

Very good point. What I suspected about the Gedō Mazō being a tailed beast due to its extraction killing its host's body seems to have been confirmed.--Mangekyō Sharingan IzunaJOA20 09:16, November 30, 2014 (UTC)
"Gedo Mazo" is nothing but a nickname for the Ten-Tails' degenerated form for the 1000th time. They should be merged, we don't have separate articles for the Bulbasaur or 1-hand forms, nor the rabbit one.--Elve [Moderator] Talk Page|Contribs 11:59, November 30, 2014 (UTC)
Ten-Tails=Nine Tailed Beasts' chakra+Gedō Mazō. It'd be weird if the databook talked about sealing BOTH the Ten-Tails and the Nine beasts. So at least the databook makes a distinction between the Ten-Tails and the Gedō Mazō, while classifying the latter as a tailed beast as well.--Mangekyō Sharingan IzunaJOA20 12:14, November 30, 2014 (UTC)
I'm blind, because I can't find where the GM is called a tailed beast. • Seelentau 愛 13:33, November 30, 2014 (UTC)
I may just be stupid, but that quote does it refer to the Demonic Statue as the tenth beast, or the aptly named "Ten-Tails" as the Tenth?--TheUltimate3 Eye of Rikudō (talk) 13:38, November 30, 2014 (UTC)
(Sigh) I thought the link would be used, but here's more: "The middle caption says that the caster condenses and absorbs the ten tailed beasts into himself, awakening ("blossoming") their original power (本来の力, primal power, essential power)." Do with that what you will.
~•WS7125[Mod]WindStar7125 TaskWindStar7125's Task 14:13, November 30, 2014 (UTC)
I still don't get how that means that the GM is a tailed beast... • Seelentau 愛 14:22, November 30, 2014 (UTC)

...If I'm certain, it states the Six Paths Ten-Tails Coffin Seal requires the sealing of the ten tailed beasts. The manga showed us the SPTTCS requires the sealing of the nine tailed beasts and the Gedo Mazo. Basically, databook said SPTTCS = Ten Tailed Beasts, manga showed SPTTCS = Nine Tailed Beasts + Gedo Mazo. From there, I got Ten Tailed Beasts = Nine Tailed Beasts + Gedo Mazo. That's how I got the Gedo Mazo as the tenth tailed beast.
~•WS7125[Mod]WindStar7125 TaskWindStar7125's Task 14:30, November 30, 2014 (UTC)

Ah, I see. Well, the GM is obviously not a tailed beast. I think the databook rather refers to the Ten-Tails, which is made up from nine tailed beasts, thus having ten bodies in total that need to be absorbed. • Seelentau 愛 14:43, November 30, 2014 (UTC)
What Seelentau says above has to be definitely what the databook is trying to say. NoJutsu (talk) 14:51, November 30, 2014 (UTC)
Why shouldn't "Gedo Mazo" be a Tailed Beast? It's the Ten-Tails' degenerated form and we consider the Ten-Tails to be a Tailed Beast, don't we? Don't tell me it's not one because: "it doesn't have at least one tail" because technically, neither does Chomei. In fact, Chomei was "born" without its wings which we consider "tails". Not to mention Gyuki's tentacles can be cut off, so if someone where to cut off all of his tentacles, he would cease being a Tailed Beast?--Elve [Moderator] Talk Page|Contribs 16:12, December 2, 2014 (UTC)

On a highly technical level, the Demonic Statue stops being a tailed beast when it no longer has the demon chakra that makes it the one eyed giant tree monster horror show. It basically becomes a giant sorta-dead mutated tree woman thing. Getting on in higher technicalities, the Ten-Tails isn't even a tailed beast because the tailed beasts were made after the Sage of the Six Paths made them. So yeah, Demonic Statue = Not-Tailed Beast due to its nature.--TheUltimate3 Eye of Rikudō (talk) 17:05, December 2, 2014 (UTC)
