Bijuu and JinchuurikiThis is a featured page

In the anime and manga series, Naruto, there exist tailed demons with an unimaginable amount of chakra called Bijuu. .Their are a total of nine demons that exist scattered throughout the Naruto world. Each Bijuu has a different number of tail, starting with Shukaku, the one-tailed demon going all the way up to the nine-tailed demon, Kyuubi. While only two of them have been revealed to us it has been stated in the manga that Akatsuki currently holds four of the nine demons. They have captured Gaara and extracted the power of Shukaku from him, and hold Yugito, the Jinchuuriki of the two-tailed demon cat. It is yet unknown what the other Bijuu are exactly. Other than the Three-tailed demon turtle, the rest of the Bijuu that have been revealed to us are based on creatures from Japanese mythology, so it is speculated that the rest of them will be from there as well.

A person within whom a Bijuu has been sealed at birth is called a Jinchuuriki, and grows up to exhibit extraordinary chakra. According to Akatsuki members, the Jinchuuriki are typically lonely people who hate humanity. This is probably because everyone is afraid of the Jinchuuriki and either run away upon seeing them or try and kill them (the same way people of the Hidden Sand Village treated Gaara). Before Gaara, when Akatsuki captured the two Jinchuuriki villages no one from their villages seemed to care, and in fact were thankful to be rid of them. The known Bijuu and Jinchuuriki that we have seen are below.

Ichibi no Shukaku
Jinchuuriki: Sabaku no Gaara
Village/Country: Sunagakure no Sato/Wind Country
Sasori's grandmother, Chiyo, had the demon Shukaku sealed into Gaara. Shukaku comes out when Gaara goes to sleep. As soon as Gaara awakens, however, the Shukaku disappears. This was first seen in the battle Gaara had with Naruto when Naruto was trying to protect Sakura from being killed. The powers Shukaku gives Gaara are the ability to move and levitate sand at will, as well as the ability to be protected at all times by the sand, regardless of his will (even self-inflicted injuries are prevented by the sand). He suffers from a side effect of lifelong insomnia and the black circles around his eyes show that. Later on in Naruto (this has only been shown in the manga thus far) Gaara was defeated in battle by Akatsuki member Deidara and Akatsuki removed the Shukaku demon from Gaara leading to Gaara's death. Luckily for Gaara, he was later on to be revived by Sasori's grandmother who gave her own life energy and sacrificed her life for the sake of Gaara's.

Yugito Nii Two-Tailed Monster Cat
Nibi no Bakeneko
Jinchuuriki: Nii Yugito
Village/Country: Kumogakure no Sato/Lightning Country

Nibi is seen to be a two-tailed, flaming cat in the Naruto manga (It has not appeared in the anime yet). Other than the ability to breathe fire, we are unsure of what kind of powers the Demon Cat possess. Yugito is a female Jinchuuriki. She was first seen in chapter 313 of the manga, and is a ninja from the Hidden Cloud Village. She refers to herself as the second strongest ninja of the village. Despite transforming into the Demon Cat's true form, she is quickly and easily beaten by akatsuki members Hidan and Kakuzu. At the end we see her pinned to a wall by a kunai through her hands. Later on Akatsuki member Zetsu arrives to take her off their hands, and Akatsuki eventually extracts the bijuu out.

Yagura Three-Tailed Giant Turtle Sanbi no Kyodaigame
Jinchuuriki: Yagura(4th Mizukage)
Village/Country: Kirigakure/Water Country The Sanbi is first seen in the Naruto Manga, chapter 317. We see Akatsuki members Deidara and Tobi trying to bring down the Sanbi, which Tobi says is a turtle. The Sanbi retaliates against the attacks of the members and Tobi runs from it while Deidara molds his explosive clay into a fish then throws it into the water. The clay fish swims close beside the Bijuu before detonating. Deidara and Tobi end up defeating and capturing the Bijuu very easily. Tobi gloats about how he defeated the Sanbi, and Deidara scolds him by saying that he had helped and that Akatsuki members are not supposed to act like that. Deidara adds that Tobi should not be that excited because the Sanbi was weak because it did not have a Jinchuuriki to control its power.

File:4tails.jpg Four-Tailed Monkey Yonbi no Saru
Jinchuuriki: Roushi
Village/Country: Iwagakure no Sato/Earth Country The four-tails Jinchuuriki was an elderly man who was first seen in chapter 353 of the Naruto manga. It is unknown where he was from or what animal the bijuu was because Kisame had already defeated him when he was shown in the manga. Although he was seen defeated, Kisame said that he had a difficult time with this Jinchuuuriki because of all the elemental fusions (combining different types of attacks like fire, wind, and water) that the old man could perform. It is hypothesized that the dark mark seen around this Jinchuuriki's nose and cheeks is an influence of his bijuu (like Naruto's whiskers and the dark circles around Gaara's eyes).


Kyuubi no Yoko
Jinchuuriki: Uzumaki Naruto
Village/Country: Konohagakure no Sato/Fire Country
The Forth Hokage sealed the Kyuubi, the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox, within Naruto after its attack on Konoha twelve years before the start of Naruto the series. It is said to be the most powerful of the tailed-beasts because a single swipe of one of its nine tails could raise tsunamis and flatten mountains The Kyuubi gives Naruto the ability to heal from wounds at astonishing speeds, as well as give him an immense amount of Chakra. It is also the reason why Naruto has those three lines (or whiskers) on each side of his face. The Kyuubi is activated in times of extreme rage (like when Naruto saw Sasuke take a hit for him and thought that he was going to die) and times of near death (like when Naruto is about to drown after being heavily wounded in the battle between him and Sasuke). As the Nine-Tailed fox is activated, Naruto becomes more and more like the Kyuubi. The Third Hokage and Kakashi Hatake have said that if Naruto loses all control of the Kyuubi's chakra, than the seal which keeps it inside Naruto will break and the Kyuubi will be freed.
Fortunatley, this has not happened, so Naruto still has the Kyuubi within him. He has been trained by one of the three legendary Sannin, Jiraiya, so that he could control and call upon the power of the Kyuubi at will.
