|“||Are you stupid!? I am the Nine-Tails! I haven't fallen so far that a little child can influence me! I am hatred incarnate.||„|
|~ Kurama to Naruto|
Kurama (九喇嘛, Kurama), more commonly known as the Nine-Tails (九尾, Kyūbi), is one of the nine tailed beasts that were created by Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki from the chakra of his mother Kaguya Ōtsutsuki. Kurama was originally free to roam the world until he was subjected to Madara Uchiha's genjutsu and forced to fight Hashirama Senju before being sealed with the body of the First Hokage's wife. A few generations later, having grown to hate humans as he was demonized and treated like a weapon to be used by succeeding Jinchuriki like Kushina Uzumaki, Kurama attempted to get his revenge when freed by Obito Uchiha. But Kurama is defeated by Minato Namikaze, who absorbed the fox's Yin chakra while sealing him within the body of Naruto Uzumaki. While Kurama made attempts to take over Naruto and regain his freedom, he eventually made his peace with humans after realizing his host was the child whom Hagoromo said would unite the tail beasts. Since then, deciding to remain with Naruto as he became Hokage while reuniting his Yin half at the end of the Fourth Great Ninja War, Kuruma willingly helps the human protect the new age that followed.

Weakness: 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.
- Negative Emotions Sensing: Kurama has the ability to sense negative emotions such as hatred and killing intent of any individual around it. When Naruto achieved the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, he in turn, gained this ability.
- Tailed Beast Shockwave: A tailed beast uses its massive chakra reserve to turn anything from a roar or a wave into a powerful force of pressure and destruction. When Naruto was in control while using Kurama's power, he demonstrated powerful shockwaves by roaring or movement of his arms. When enraged or when Kurama took control of his body, he has been shown to use explosions with powerful wave of his arms.
- Bijūdama (Tailed Beast Ball): The Tailed Beast Ball is the ultimate technique of a tailed beast and its jinchūriki. To form the attack, they gather both positive black chakra, and negative white chakra, then shape it into a sphere. The ball can be fired differently, either in a spherical form, which can be detonated for a wave explosion or launched to form a dome-shaped blast which flattens and erases everything around it, or as a concentrated beam of energy which gives it explosive penetrative power.
- Renzoku Bijūdama (Continuous Tailed Beast Balls): The tailed beast or transformed jinchūriki fires multiple uncompressed Tailed Beast Balls in rapid succession at the target.
