I don't think that we'll ever see just Kurama fighting the way that the eight tails fights. Because like Yazen already said, they work together in different ways. I think other than Naruto merging Kurama's and nature chakra together there's not much else for them to do, there isn't really a point in having Naruto turn into a full bodied Kurama. I mean, look at this chapter, he basically has all of the ninetails powers in this current form. He's big and strong enough to fight on par with five of the other beasts at once, even though he is getting help from the eight tails, and now he's about to use the bijuu ball. The only drawback to how they are now, is that there's a time limit. And Kurama himself said that that was only because it was their first time merging and it wasn't perfect.
Right and right... right now the ninetails is just content to lend Naruto chakra but I forsee, like everytime Naruto has gone "rogue", a situation might develop where Naruro is knock unconcious and in an attempt to prevent Naruto from being captured Karuma may be forced to come out. He'll fight and try to hold out at least long enough till Naruto wakes up to tell him "thanks Karuma, I'll take ot from here *reverts back into human form*".
May sound like a fanfic but seeing their relationship now and the fact that Naruto has given the fox freedom to roam in his subconscious if Naruto was to ever lose his senses and rendered incapacitated Karuma would be forced to play his hand and fight the threat, not only for mutual preservation but also to save the first human he ever cared about.
LOL Krazy, it's Kurama, not Karuma!
I agree with you there, Kyubi is finally entertaining his way with Naruto and fighting Fake Madara! And he's gonna be helpful and take good control of the ship whenever Naruto is in trouble.
Funny to see that, during Madara/First Hokage fight, Kyubi was the bad guy and all the other Bijuus with the First (he was supposed to have owned some Bijuus back then and gave some for power balance, but he might have one or two still up his sleeves at this time?)
Kyubi, you want to destriy the Wolrd? Now save it :D!
(reminds me the RPG "Chtuulu saves the Wolrd" game)
Another note: Naruto's cloak development smells like Sasuke's Susanoo. A logic choice from Kishi for Sasuke/Naru second round. It's gonna be epic.
By the way, anyone remebers which part of Kyubi's chakra Naruto possesses? Yin or Yang?
Iīd like to say Yang, cuz itīs related to light and so on, but I donīt really know...donīt wanna look it up either :P
And I guess the parallels between Sasukeīs Susanoo and this mode is wanted by Kishi.
It's Yin because I remember thinking "wtf? he only has the dark chakra of the kyuubi?"
It's Yang, if I remember correctly.
Haha, I knew it didnt sound right Bledge. I just drove from Houston to LA with a buddy and something about a 22+ hr drive just makes one a little looney in the head.
Yang sounds about right indeed, regardless he wouldnt be able to reclaim it since its with the Shinigami right ? And true, now that Naruto now has mastery of his cloak it would make the perfect matchup for Sasuke's Susanoo. Hell the way how you see him inside of the shroud perfectly mirrors the way sasuke shields within Susuanoo's body as well. Speaking of sasuke was Itachi heading towards him or for Kabuto? If the later then do you guys think sasuke'll run into, and possibly even kill, Juugo and Sui?
It's yang alright. He possesses the pure physical aspect of Kurama. Which is why mokuton reacts to the very life force it gives off. Yin is giving form to nothing and Yang is giving life to form. As is said with Izanagi. I also suspect Naruto should be immune to most genjutsu now as Bee is by having Hachi break it. I still wonder if Tobi can even form the Juubi with only half of Kyuubi.
....whoever mentioned Naruto giving Kurama Nature chakra....suddenly a Sage Mode Kurama sounds damn overpowered.
I WANT TO SEE THAT!
However much I would like to not believe it, or in any other way see it... I'm thinking that in order for Kurama to make an actual appearance in the material world is that if the Hachibi and Bee were to be captured by Tobi... That's my guess anyway. Think about it, if Hachibi is the next most powerful tailed beast then the 9-tails would be the other alternative to take him down if he went on a rampage like what the other beasts are doing right now. Naruto is a pretty BAMF right now, but after the 5 minutes times out and he finds Hachibi as an enemy.... i'm thinking it would be time to tag out with Kurama for a little bit.
Chances of this happening? Not so high
Would it be cool to see? Damn skippy!
