How strong are the ten tails

Who is the strongest tail animal in the Naruto series? Kurama or Ten-Tails?

Naruto is one of the most famous and popular series both in Japan and internationally.

One of the reasons for this is the expansive world that has slowly built up over the years. Since the end of its run, it has influenced many Shonen series and has become a blueprint.

With an epic first episode that wowed us with its opening scene, we were introduced to the nine-tailed fox, which turned out to be the real reason the whole series started and spun.

While our protagonist was portrayed as a monster full of hatred in the typical Naruto style, he managed to pacify Kurama and befriend him. Indeed, not just him, but all tail animals.

Just like Naruto, there were other humans who managed to gain the consent of the beast within them and access their power.

The question, however, is why these people weren't as strong as Naruto when they had access to the same power?

Aside from the obvious answer that they weren't the main character, The reason lies behind the chakra and strength, which is different for each tail animal.

In this list below, I'll rank all of the tail animals based on their strength.

10. One-tailed beast - Shukaku

The one-sided animal Shukaku was last sealed in Gaara by Sunagakure. Besides Kurama and Gyuki, we saw him the most.

His first appearance in Naruto was during the Chunin Exam, and from then on, his strength has always shocked audiences.

Like other tail animals, Shukaku has a huge chakra with which he can perform the characteristic tail animal ball.

He can also use wind, earth, and magnetic release, with a specialty in sand manipulation. That being said, he is blessed with excellent physical strength that can even obliterate a senjutsu fortified susanoo.

In the fourth Shinobi War, Shukaku and Gaara teamed up to restrict Madara's movements, and they actually succeeded, if only for a short time. In addition, he played an essential role in sealing Kaguya Otsutsuki and Urashiki (temporarily).

However, as Kurama noted, Shukaku, despite all his achievements, is the weakest of the tail animals. Due to the number of tails that determine the power of the beasts, the single-tailed beast rests in 10th place.

9. Two-tailed beast - Matatabi

Matatabi, also known as Two-Tails, was last sealed in Yugito Nii by Kumogakure.

Like Gaara, Yugito was captured by two Akatsuki members who extracted matatabi. After his wartime release, Two-Tails helped the Shinobi Alliance defend itself against Madara and Kaguya.

Matatabi also has huge amounts of chakra that can be transmitted to others that create the Tailed Beast Ball.

It can use fire triggers and is completely surrounded by black and cobalt blue flames. Despite its size It has excellent speed and is twice as powerful as Shukaku in terms of raw power.

8. Three-tailed beast - Isobu

Isobu was last sealed in Yagura Karatachi by Kirigakure and is commonly known as the three-tails. It primarily resembles a giant tortoise with two human-like arms and hands, but no hind legs.

Isobu's power was clearly seen in the anime when Orochimaru, Kabuto, and Guren's team weren't even up to the tail beast.

Let alone she, even Konohagakure's four-corner sealing barrier, couldn't manage to seal it off. It wasn't until two Akatsuki members - Deidara and Tobi - arrived that the Isobu lost.

Isobu speaks of raw strength as a tail animal. He has an enormous chakra and can create the tail animal ball.

Due to its aquatic nature, it has an affinity for water release and can form corals and swim at very high speeds. It can also create a hallucinogenic fog that takes advantage of the victim's insecurities.

The physical strength of the Three Tails is terrifying as it can create shock waves to repel attacks and even create large tidal waves. While it has almost no weak parts, the hard skin and shell provide additional defense.

Isobu, the three-tailed animal, ranks eighth on this list as its strength exceeds that of Matatabi and Shukaku thanks to its extra tails.

7. Four-tailed beast - son of Goku

Son Goku is the four-tailed animal that takes on the appearance of a red-haired monkey. It was last sealed in Roshi by Iwagakure.

Aside from the huge amounts of chakra and the ability to create a tail animal ball that is common to all tail animals, Son Goku knows a lot about Taijutsu.

Despite its gigantic size, it is very agile and uses its great physical strength to achieve powerful, well-timed kicks.

In the series, Son Goku was captured and sealed by Kisame, an Akatsuki member. However, during the fourth Shinobi World War we saw its real strength.

Although they are under Tobi's control, Son Goku was strong enough to attack Killer B and Gyuki and even push them back. We later saw him bump into each other and successfully swallow Naruto.

Son Goku ranks 7th on this list because of his strength and performance in the series.

6. Five-tailed beast - Kokuo

Kokuo, also known as the Five Tails, is one of the tail animals that was last sealed in Han by Iwagakure. and like other beasts, it possesses large amounts of chakra and can produce a ball of tailed beasts.

But, What sets it apart from others is its unyielding will, which was seen regaining its senses and breaking free of Tobi's control during the war.

Despite his limited strength, Kokuo managed to ram the eight tails and push them back with his horns.

5. Six-tailed beast - Saiken

Saiken, one of the tail animals, takes the form of a giant white biped snail and has six long tails. It was last sealed in Utakata by Kirigakure.

As a tail animal, it has a massive chakra and can use it to create a tail animal ball.

One ability unique to Saiken is the ability to emit corrosive substances that can instantly dissolve the target upon contact.

It also has tremendous durability, seen when it was able to be thrown from a great distance by Kurama.

In the anime, Saiken Nagos faced six paths of pain and engaged in an intense battle, although he was defeated in the end.

Under Tobi's control later in the war, it showed considerable power and managed to stop the movements of Naruto and Kurama for a while.

Saiken, while extremely powerful compared to the previously classified beasts, is still weaker than the beasts with more tails. Because of this, it ranks 5th on this list.

4. Seven-tailed beast - Chomei

Chomei, that is, the seven-tailed animal, resembles a blue, armored beetle.

What sets it apart from others is that six of its seven tails are in the shape of wings, all of which grow from the end of its belly. It was last sealed at Fu of Takigakure.

Chomei possesses considerable amounts of chakra, can use the Tailed Beast Ball, and can fly.

It also uses insect-based attacks like biting or ramming the horn against the enemy or creating a cocoon to slow chakra absorption. It's 4th on this list.

3. Eight-tailed beast - Gyuki

Gyuki, also known as the eight tails, is shaped like a squid or octopus and is the third strongest tail animal. It was last sealed in Killer B.

We first saw his full form when Sasuke and his team confronted Gyuki with the intention of catching him. As it turned out, the Eight Tails quickly overpowered and outwitted its opponents and managed to survive.

In terms of power, like other tail animals, it possesses a massive amount of chakra and can perform the tail animal ball.

This ability is strong enough to penetrate nine barriers and even push the ten-tail's own Tailed Beast Ball back into its body. A unique feature is that the severed tentacles can be used as a medium for the chakra.

Thanks to its tentacle-like tails, Gyuki can create a huge tornado or use it for protection.

It's durable enough to block Amaterasu head-on and can even hold Kurama back for a while. It's so powerful that even the Third Raikage had to form a special team to subdue and seal it.

During the fourth Shinobi World War, Eight-Tails was able to hold its own against two other tail animals despite a serious injury. Because of this, Gyuki ranks third on this list, only Kurama and the Ten-Tails can overwhelm him.

2. Nine-tailed beast - Kurama

Kurama is the strongest of the nine tail animals. It was last sealed in Naruto Uzumaki by Konohagakure, that is, the protagonist of the series.

Most of Naruto's power was supplied by Kurama, and the latter can be said to be a major source of power. As a team, they managed to defeat Kaguya, a sky goddess.

Kurama's massive chakra reserves were sufficient to be passed on to the entire Allied Shinobi armed forces and to be perceived by non-sensors as countries outside of it.

It could also create a Tailed Beast Ball strong enough to counter an attack by the Ten-Tailed Beast.

Kurama can raise tsunamis and flatten mountains with just one stroke of its tail.

Even at half its strength, it could overpower five other tail animals, destroy Madara's senjutsu-enhanced susanoo, and fight Sasuke's tail-animal-enhanced whole-body susanoo.

Kurama is many times stronger than other tail animals and is in second place directly below the ten-tailed animal.

1. Ten-tailed beasts

The ten-tailed beast is considered that Precursor of the chakra and a the combined form of Kaguya Otsutsuki and the God Tree. To end the animal's rampageHagoromo Otsutsuki became the ten-tailed Jinchuriki and later divided his chakra into the nine-tailed beasts.

If the chakra reserves of the nine tail animals were considered enormous, imagine how large their combined chakra would be?

With overwhelmingly strong reserves, the ten-tail is considered the source of all chakras and can bring utter despair and destruction to the world.

The ten-tail animal is the strongest tail animal. It is so powerful that even Kurama admitted that it had no chance on its own.

When it takes its final form, the ten-tailed becomes a god tree capable of capturing and absorbing the tail animals and humans.

It just overwhelms the other beasts by sheer strength alone. In summary it can be said that the Ten-Tails has all the abilities of the others, plus more.
