Chakra. Kurama has 206 red, heavy chakra points which he can expend. All chakra points are regained at the end of a long rest.

Evasion. When Kurama is targeted by an area effect that lets him make a Dexterity saving throw to take only half damage, such as fireball, he instead takes no damage if he succeeds on the saving throw, and only half damage if he fails the save.

Ninja Speed. Kurama can take the dash, dodge, and disengage actions as a bonus action, and can move along vertical surfaces.

Tailed Beasts. Kurama must spend 1 less chakra on all jutsu (included in actions), he regains 10 hit points at the start of each of his turns, he has advantage on Strength and Dexterity checks and saving throws, and has a damage reduction of 5.

Negative Emotion Sense. When Kurama takes the search action, he may also attempt a DC 15 Charisma saving throw to locate living creatures that are evil or are hostile toward another creature within 120 feet. He learns their location that moment and whether they are evil or hostile. This effect can penetrate most barriers, but is blocked by 1 foot of stone, 1 inch of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 3 feet of wood or dirt. Additionally, this counts as chakra sense for anything that would effect traditional chakra sense.


Multiattack. Kurama can make 3 unarmed strikes.

Unarmed Strike. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (5d4 + 3) bludgeoning damage.

Hidden Chakra. As a bonus action, Kurama regains 20 chakra points.

Chakra Transfer (1+ Chakra). Kurama grants one creature he can touch a number of Red Chakra equal to the amount he spends.

Tailed Beast Shockwave (3+ Chakra). Each creature within a 5 ft. radius must succeed a DC 18 Strength saving throw or take 8 (1d8 + 4) force damage and be pushed to the edge of this jutsu’s range. Kurama can add an additional 5 (1d8) damage and 5 feet to the affected radius and the distance the target is pushed for every 2 additional chakra point spent. If more than 20 chakra is spent, the ground and buildings within range take double damage. Kurama may spend 4 additional chakra separate from the previous effects to use this as a reaction, causing the ranged attacks it may be made in response to to miss in addition to its normal effects.

Tailed Beast Bomb (20 Chakra). All creatures in a 10 ft. by 60 ft. line or 20 ft. radius 60 ft. from Kurama must succeed a DC 19 Dexterity saving throw. On a failure, they take 59 (10d10 + 4) force damage, are pushed to the closest edge of the area, and fall prone. On a success, they take half as much damage. This jutsu ignores evasion.

Nine-Tails Beam (3 Chakra). Every creature within a 60 ft. line must attempt DC 19 Dexterity saving throw, taking 15 (2d6 + 4) force damage on a failure, or half as much on a success. Kurama may use this jutsu up to 9 times on a single action.

Transformation (1 Chakra). Kurama becomes identical to a person, creature or non-magical object he a complete visual image of. This can not be a light source, armor, tool, or vehicle and, and he can not recreate a magical effect. Creatures must make a DC 19 Investigation check to realize that he is transformed. If the creature saw him performing the Jutsu, they automatically succeed. This does not change statistics, save for granting the creature's swimming and flying speeds.

Body Flicker (2 Chakra). Kurama's movement speed doubles, and his movement does not provoke attacks of opportunity.


Substitution (2+ Chakra). When Kurama is hit by an attack and would take damage, he decreases the damage by 27 (1d10 + 22) and teleports up to 15 ft. in any direction to an unoccupied space, during which he takes the Hide action. A generic object is left in his place and he takes any remaining damage from that attack. Kurama can add reduce this damage by an additional 6 (1d10) points per chakra point spent over the initial cost.

The Nine-Tailed Fox.

Kurama the Nine-Tailed Fox is the strongest of the Tailed Beasts, save for the Ten-Tails. Cynical and shrewd, it has generally hated humanity for centuries of attempts to contain him to be used as a living weapon, whether it be being used by Madara, or being sealed within Kushina or Naruto. Some have even argued that its hatred is what made it so much stronger than the other Tailed Beasts.

Yin/Yang Kurama

After the Fourth Hokage used the Reaper Death Seal to seal Kurama within his infant son Naruto, Kurama was split for the boy's safety, with his Yin half joining Minato within the Reaper's belly. In this state, he became much closer to Gyūki in terms of power. It wasn't until the end of the Fourth Shinobi World War that Kurama would be whole again.

Yin and Yang Kurama's CR changes to 22, his Constitution score is reduced to 20, his maximum hit points are reduced to 209 (22d8 + 110), his maximum chakra points are reduced to 105, and his AC, jutsu saving throw DC, and attack roll, skill, and saving throw bonuses gaining a -1 penalty.
