|~ Kurama to Naruto|
Kurama more commonly known as the Nine-Tails or the Nine-Tailed Fox, is one of the nine Tailed Beasts created from the Ten-Tails by Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki, the Sage of Six Paths. Regarded as a dangerous monster and a living calamity by the humans residing in the Land of Fire, Kurama was eventually captured and sealed in numerous vessels, among them Naruto Uzumaki, to weaponize its power as a tool of war against the other shinobi nations.

As they are masses of energy in this state, they are impossible to kill by normal means), Energy Manipulation (Can manipulate chakra to create Tailed Beast Balls as well as additional appendages), Regeneration (Likely Low-Mid. His chakra helped heal Naruto after Sasuke's Chidori pierced a hole through his chest and right lung. Kurama should be able to heal himself with his own chakra as well), Large Size (Varies from Type 2 to 3, as the size of the Bijuu was portrayed inconsistently)
Attack Potency: At least Small Country level+ (Matched the combined Bijūdama of five other Bijuu’s with one of his own without being at full power, and contributed to the majority of the energy used to perform this feat) | Country level (Did this with a standard Bijuudama, and is twice as strong as his 50% state) | Unknown

Stamina: Very high. Tailed beasts have enormous chakra reserves and Kurama is the strongest of the 9 Tailed Beasts.
Range: At least tens of kilometers with Bijūdama
Standard Equipment: Nothing notable
Intelligence: Very cunning. He can formulate strategies in the midst of battle. Also has remarkable leadership skills, being able to stay completely composed even when being overwhelmed by the Ten-Tails and effectively tell its new team-mates on how best to handle the mighty tailed beast.
Weaknesses: Kurama is always genuinely angry and easy to provoke, it is vulnerable to sufficient, high-level mind-controlling and sealing techniques. While sealed in a host (jinchuuriki), it will die if the host does. Like all Tailed Beasts, it can't properly focus its power without a Jinchuriki's aid thus throws around its power randomly.
- Tailed Beast Bomb: The signature attack of the Tailed Beasts, Kurama mixes appropriate proportions of positive black chakra and negative white chakra to form a ball of energy that he can fire at his target, obliterating large swathes of land in an instant on impact. Alternatively, Kurama can swallow it to compress its energy into a beam that could only be stopped by another being as powerful as a Tailed Beast like the Eight-Tails.
- Continuous Tailed Beast Bombs: Kurama fires several uncompressed Tailed Beast Balls in rapid succession to quickly decimate an area.
- Tailed Beast Shockwave: Kurama uses his massive chakra reserves to empower his roars and movements, dispersing oncoming attacks as powerful as Naruto's Ultra-Big Ball Rasengan and sending other Tailed Beasts flying backwards.
- Negative Emotions Sensing: Kurama has the ability to sense negative emotions such as hatred and killing intent of any individual around it.
