Naruto by wandix

“naruto's nine tail”
The Nine-Tailed Demon Fox (九尾の妖狐, Kyūbi no Yōkō?, English TV "Nine-Tailed Fox Spirit/Demon") is the most powerful of the tailed beasts. Its power is such that it is regarded as an age-old natural disaster, as a single swipe of one of its nine tails is enough to raise tsunamis and flatten mountains. Twelve years before the start of the series Madara Uchiha used his Mangekyo Sharingan to have the fox attack Konohagakure. None of the ninja of the village were able to defeat it until the Fourth Hokage, Minato Namikaze, arrived to deal with it. Minato sacrificed his life to seal the fox into the body of his newborn son, Naruto Uzumaki. Rather than completely seal off the fox's great power, however, Minato only sealed away a portion of it, giving Naruto access to the rest for unknown reasons. Minato left a key to Jiraiya that could either strengthen or weaken the fox's seal should the need arise. The seal naturally becomes weaker as the years pass, and in the event that it is broken the demon fox will be released.

The only initial indication that Naruto is the fox's host are the whisker marks on his face and his ability to rapidly heal from injuries and fatigue. Once learning of the fox's presence within him, Naruto makes better usage of its chakra by performing jutsu that would ordinarily be impossible for ninja of his age. Though small amounts of the fox's chakra constantly mix with Naruto's own, he can draw upon its reserves in two ways: he can enter his own subconscious and converse with the fox to ask for a donation of its strength. Alternatively, he can succumb to rage, allowing the fox's violent personality to influence his own. As Naruto draws upon greater amounts of its chakra the fox begins to manifest itself in the form of a fox-shaped red aura with multiple tails. Naruto can only maintain control over his mind for the first three tails; at the fourth, he loses all sense of self and readily attacks anyone nearby. In these instances, the fox can only be stopped by suppressing its influence, either with Yamato's Mokuton abilities or with a special seal created by Jiraiya that is directly applied to Naruto's body.

In the few instances where Naruto converses with the fox it is shown to have a loathing respect for both Naruto and Minato. While the fox initially complies to Naruto's requests out of curiosity, it later does so in an attempt to further its influence over Naruto and weaken the seal. It also acts in order to preserve its own well-being, as Naruto's death would also result in its own.
