Brash, impulsive, and more immovable than any rock Homura Kitsune is what many would call an idiot. He speaks often before he realizes what he's saying and doesn't think twice about it afterward, he can oftentimes come off as severely rude without really trying to mean it, and other times he can come off as mean simply because he's bold and boisterous often not caring if what he says is hurtful if he feels justified in saying such. As a child, Homura was at times very perceptive and observant but was usually quite slow, and simple, unable to grasp complex concepts and to hide his embarrassment over this he usually acted strongly to mask how much it really does frustrate him, as he got older his simplicity did seem to fade away to an extent and he is much more perceptive than he was as a child. His brash and impulsive behavior did stay to an extent driving Homura to be reckless when upset, he tends to speak his mind and act on the first thing that pops into his mind causing him to be quite violent and rude at times making him feel quite apologetic afterward. Due to losing his parents at a young age and leaving him alone to be responsible for the wellbeing of his younger brother Kyushi Homura tried dropping most of these bad traits and began training relentlessly determined to make sure that his little brother would never need to fear for his family again. His wish to follow in his fathers steps and become Hokage of the Hidden Leaf was something that also fueled his passion. While protecting the Leaf Village and ultimately protecting his brother is his number one drive he won't lie and say he didn't resent both parties for their role in his life. The Hidden Leaf ostracized him after his parents death when he became the Jinchuriki of the Nine Tails Fox demon refusing to talk and sometimes even acknowledge his existence, they saw nothing in him but a monster despite what he and his parents did for everyone leading him to deeply grow to despise and hate some of the members of his village, Though his resentment to his brother is shown in a different way Homura is jealous that Kyushi was sheltered from everything that happened and that sheltering was his fault, so he's truly just angry at himself.
Homura as a child was described as ugly, undersirable and all around unpleasant to look at by other females, their first male of choice usually consisting of Kasumi or one of the other wealthy boys. Though as time went on Homura began being regarded as quite good looking, his face is framed by a curtain of long spiky blonde hair and he possesses striking blue eyes. His body is lithe but well developed allowing him incredible physical prowess.
Born to Hamatura Kitsune and Arisato Mura it was foretold early that Homura's destiny would one day be great, his father, the Hokage of the Village Hidden in the Leaves and his mother the Jinchuriki of a demon of unforetold power; Homura was paised and revered by many of the village, many thinking that he would become a prodigy Shinobi like his parents. Instead, Homura was actually quite talentless not because he had no potential, but because he never tried to apply himself, he slacked off in school ignored his training and pulled pranks on the officials who couldn't do much because his father was the Hokage. He hid behind his father's power and used it to get out of many things, that was until his father found out and finally gave Homura no such special treatment insisting on punishing him just as much, and sometimes more than others. After this Homura was forced to pay more attention in school though his teachers would still tell his parents that while his grades were improving, he was still a slacker. Homura was also quite lonely with most other kids refusing to play with him because of his fathers reputation so he'd spend most of his time messing around or helping take care of his brother Kyushi, the only two friends he had at the time being Kasumi Misuti, the last blood Uchiha of the Leaf Village and the Last of the Misuti Klan and Aoi Ise a shinobi he had met at the academy as a child. For several months things started to look better for Homura, he was attending school, getting good grades and the pranks had lessened. Then one night everything changed for the two boys when they woke up to an attack on their home by none other than their aunt Karanichi Kitsune who was determined to break the seal resting on her sister and release the Nine Tailed Demon out onto the world thinking that she would be able to control it, she was wrong and was proven so because as soon as she broke the seal on her sister and released the Tailed Beast it immediately set it's sights on the village unleashing it's eternal rage against Homura's home killing hundreds.
To stop the Fox it needed to once again be sealed inside of a host to contain it's power, so as Arisato fought and eventually brought the beast back to a barely alive Hamatura where she used her the last remaining bits of her Chakra to create Adamantine chains to restrain and bind Kurama but not before it could enduce a lethal blow upon the boy's father. And so the beast was bound and restrained but with no host and Hamatura quickly falling into death. A decision needed to be made, no other Shinobi had the Chakra reserves to contain the demon fox and Homura and his parents didn't believe that five year old Kyushi would survive the seal so Homura not wanting to risk his brothers death and the villages destruction volunteered to have the demon sealed inside. After his father performed the Eight Trigrams sealing and sealed half of Kurama inside Homura and the other half into him he passed from this world his wife going with him, leaving the two children to fend for themselves.
Despite his parents wishing for the village to look at the two children as heroes, the Hidden Leaf not only looked at Homura as a monster, but his little brother as well just for being associated with the Jinchuriki of the Nine Tails. For several months the two were homeless living out on the streets scavenging for anything they could find, during this time Homura was feeling responsible then ever for his brothers hardships and so he decided to go and graduate from the Academy becoming a Genin so that he could get paid for his work as a Shinobi. It was much to Homura's surprise when he was put in a team with his two best friends Kasumi and Aoi and a girl in his class named Junri. Placed under the tutelage of Shinobi legend Hasaru Sensei Team 7 went on many adventures with Homura's intent to suceed growing more noticble every mission, the team fought battles and wars together and after man years Team 7 was regarded as one of the most powerful and successful Shinobi teams in history. Now at the age of 19 Homura feels the need to push himself harder than ever before so that he can become the Hokage and give his brother the life that he wished that he had been given.
Ninjustu: Ninjutsu is one of the three main jutsu categories. Ninjutsu is the most nebulous of the three, and may most simply be described as anything that is not genjutsu or taijutsu. Most ninjutsu require chakra and hand seals, but this is not always the case since the mere usage of weaponry qualifies as ninjutsu. The huge range of ninjutsu's uses is illustrated by its several sub-classifications: medical ninjutsu, reincarnation ninjutsu, space–time ninjutsu, barrier ninjutsu, sealing jutsu, and cursed seal jutsu. Most ninjutsu use shape transformation, which deals with controlling the form and movement of the ninjutsu, while nature transformation deals with changing the ninjutsu's physical properties. Ninjutsu that use nature transformation tend to follow a naming convention of their nature type followed by a more specific name. With practice and experience, certain ninjutsu can become second nature to a ninja, allowing them to perform it at will. Going from being one of the worst Shinobi in his village to becoming it's protector Homura's Ninjutsu list is short but powerful, with him being an adept master at Ninjutsu. Homura is Proficient at the Shadow Clone Jutsu, Rasengan, and Sexy Jutsu.
Taijutsu: Taijutsuis a basic form of techniques and refers to any techniques involving the martial arts or the optimisation of natural human abilities. Taijutsu is executed by directly accessing the user's physical and mental energies, relying on the stamina and strength gained through training. It typically does not require chakra, though chakra may be used to enhance its techniques. Taijutsu generally requires no hand seals to perform, occasionally making use of certain stances or poses, and are far quicker to use than ninjutsu or genjutsu. Taijutsu is, simply put, hand-to-hand combat. Taijustu is one of Homura's greatest skills and through the use of his Shadow Clones he is able to use Taininjutsu, combining his Shadow Clones with his hand to Hand prowess.
Shurikenjutsu: Shurikenjutsu pertains to techniques that entail the throwing of shuriken, kunai, senbon, or any other number of bladed, hand-held weapons. Shurikenjutsu can be used in combination with taijutsu, ninjutsu, and/or chakra flow in order to create more devastating techniques. Additionally, shurikenjutsu can pertain to techniques used through ninjutsu-made weapons. Homura's proficient enough when it comes to the art of throwing Shurkien though admittedly not as well as others like Kasumi or Hasaru Sensei, and while he does carry Shuriken on him he usually uses them to distract his opponent rather than harm them.
Chakra and Physical Prowess:
As a Kitsune, and a reincarnation of Asura Ōtsutsuki, Homura has massive reserves of strong chakra, estimated as being at least four times greater than Hasaru Sensei's, as a child and described by as "bright and warm." He initially struggled with controlling his chakra properly, which was offset by his large reserves. Homura's control improved greatly over time: he can transfer his chakra to others, and perform one-handed hand seals. He later received chakra from all of the other tailed beasts, and Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki, which increased his reserves even further. Homura's powerful life force grants him extreme longevity, healing power, stamina, and vitality, and this allowed him to survive the extraction of a tailed beast for a while. While naturally a short-range fighter, Homura wasn't very adept at taijutsu as he required unpredictable attacks to surprise combat experts. He often utilized shadow clones or Kurama's chakra to engage and overwhelm his enemies in combat; with the former, he created techniques such as the Homura Kitsune Combo and its stronger versions. Homura becomes more adept at taijutsu due to Horuto's training. Homura also learned how to counter genjutsu but had limited skill in using it. Once he had earned the cooperation of Kurama, his tailed beast partner, this would no longer be an issue. Homura's agility, speed and reaction times are heighted hundreds of times above the levels of most shinobi, his strength increased to levels where he was able to one shot a being who cut the moon in half in his base form with less than half of his Chakra.
Shadow Clone Jutsu:
Similar to the basic Clone Technique, this technique creates copies of the user. However, these clones are corporeal instead of illusions. The user's chakra is evenly distributed among every clone, giving each clone an equal fraction of the user's overall power. The clones are capable of performing techniques on their own and can even bleed, but will usually disperse after hit by a strong enough force. A characteristic that is unique to the Shadow Clone Technique is that any experience the clones gain during their existence is transferred to the user once they are dispersed. Because they are clones of the original, any chakra that the clone possesses will return to the original after being dispelled. Shadow clones can't be distinguished from the original with Sharingan, Byakugan, Rinnegan or Rinne Sharingan. Homura's complete chakra superiority allows him to create thousands of Shadow Clones with ease without having to worry about depleting his Chakra reserves.
The Rasengan is a powerful A-rank technique invented by the Fourth Hokage, Arisato Mura, which he created by observing the Tailed Beast Ball. Arisato spent three years developing the Rasengan; his plan was to take the shape transformation of one's chakra to the "highest possible point" and then combine it with his chakra's nature affinity, creating a technique that did not need the aid of time-consuming hand seals to control.The Rasengan does not require any hand seals to use, relying only on the chakra control of the user. Once it is complete, it becomes self-sustaining, which does not give the Rasengan a definite limit like the Chidori. The compacted nature and moving speed of the chakra allows the Rasengan to grind into whatever it comes in contact with to inflict major damage. This tends to launch the target backward after being hit or, if the target is lying on the ground or being launched to the ground, the destructive force is enough to form a crater. Homura was able to throw the Rasengan, making it a mid-range projectile technique. It has been noted a few times that the Rasengan is superior to its counterpart, the Chidori, it requires extremely refined chakra control, something that very few ninja naturally possess. For this reason, the Rasengan is difficult to master. In order to help others gain the necessary chakra control, learning to use the Rasengan is broken into three steps:
1.Rotation - the user learns to spin their chakra in multiple directions at once. To help in this regard, users may be given a water balloon so that they can mark their progress by the churning water; this step is complete once the users is able to burst the balloon with their chakra. It is important for the user to know which direction their body naturally spins its chakra for this step.
2.Power - the user must increase the volume and density of chakra they output. To help in this regard, users may be given a rubber ball: there is no water inside to help them burst the exterior and the rubber shell is thicker than a balloon's.
3.Containment - the user must combine the first two steps into a contained sphere. To help in this regard, users may be given a balloon to help them visualise the intended shape; if the balloon is popped or otherwise moves, mastery is not yet achieved.
At it's base Homura's Rasengan is powerful enough to drill into a mountain. The Rasengn also has many variants which include:
Odama Rasengan: The Odama Rasengan (Big Ball Rasengan) uses the same concept of compressing spinning chakra in one's palm as in the original Rasengan, only increasing the amount of chakra involved. Because there is even more chakra being compressed to a higher density, the ball releases its energy immediately on contact, thus increasing its destructive power beyond the Rasengan's.
Ultra Big Ball Rasengan: In an instant, Homura creates a Rasengan of gigantic proportions, larger than his own body. When it impacts, there is a large shock wave unleashed that can send unsuspecting shinobi flying. This jutsu is so chakra-intense that it was capable of overwhelming Delta's shinobi-ware's formidable chakra absorption capabilities. When in Sage Mode, Homura can perform a senjutsu-enhanced version known as Sage Art: Ultra-Big Ball Rasengan (仙法・超大玉螺旋丸, Senpō: Chō Ōdama Rasengan) It is said that its destructive power – were it to explode – would easily carve away an entire mountain.
Rasenrengan: Rasenrengan is a Ninjutsu technique based upon the normal Rasengan, this version allows Homura to create and wield a Rasengan in the palm of each hand after entering Sennin Mode. The dual nature of the attack thus allows double the damage to be inflicted on his target.
Big Ball Rasengan Barrage: After performing the Multiple Shadow Clone Technique, Homura creates several Big Ball Rasengan. The clones then charge towards the target in horizontal line formation and slam their Rasengan into the target, causing a massive amount of damage.
Ultra Rasengan Barrage: After creating a multitude of shadow clones, Homura and his clones each create a Rasengan to bombard their target with devastating effects.
Sage Art: Massive Rasengan Barrage: After creating multiple shadow clones with each of them holding a Rasengan, Homura then enters Sage Mode. The clones then expand their Rasengan into Ultra Big Ball Rasengan and simultaneously strike the target, resulting in an enormous amount of damage, capable of even stunning Kurama.
Homura while in Nine-Tails Chakra Mode — creates a Big Ball Rasengan in one of his hands, which is then surrounded by three regular-sized Rasengan, in a similar manner to moons around a planet. When coming into contact with a target, the disordered rotations of the individual Rasengan, created by the central and smaller ones spinning in different directions, interact with each other to form a massive and turbulent wave-like vortex. The strength of this technique is so great that it even took a shinobi reincarnated by the Impure World Reincarnation technique a significant amount of time to regenerate, which they normally do instantly.
Rasenrangan: Homura while in Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, uses a chakra arm to form multiple Rasengan above his head. He then uses additional arms to hold the Rasengan and hit multiple opponents simultaneously.
Super Mini Tailed Beast Bomb: While in Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, Homura gathers and balances the necessary black and white chakra to form a condensed, miniaturised Tailed Beast Ball. Upon impact, the ball explodes resulting in a very giant blast radius. As with the Rasengan, he can extend the ball forward with the use of a chakra arm.
Wind Style: Rasengan: Homura initially struggles to combine the Rasengan with his wind-nature, which he describes as needing to look left and right at the same time. He is eventually able to overcome this obstacle by using shadow clones: he provides the chakra, one shadow clone shapes the chakra into a sphere, and a second infuses the sphere with wind. The end product becomes the Wind Release: Rasengan. Users who have mastered the Rasengan's shape transformation will only need one shadow clone, to provide the wind-nature, and with additional experience users can perform it without any shadow clones at all. Homura now no longer needs Shadow Clones to perform this.
Sage Art: Magnet Release Rasengan: A technique that's available to Homura after inheriting the Sage of the Six Paths' powers. By combining his Rasengan with Shukaku's Magnet Release to reinforce its suction power, he creates a Rasengan with the beast's cursed seal markings. He then smashes the sphere into his opponent in the same manner as a normal Rasengan. Upon being struck with this technique, the markings quickly spread across the target's body and immobilises them.
The Rasenshuriken was invented by Homura Kistune shortly after he figured out the principles of the Wind Release: Rasengan. Like that technique, Homura typically used the help of two shadow clones in the Rasenshuriken's formation: he provides the chakra, one clone helps keep the chakra contained, and the second clone adds his wind nature. It is the completed version of the Wind Release: Rasengan, with four large points around the central Rasengan core, giving the appearance of a fūma shuriken. It also gives off a loud screeching noise. By the time of his 19th birthday, Homura is able to create Rasenshuriken without aid and is able to remotely guide it. The Rasenshuriken requires a great deal of chakra to perform. Homura has been seen creating as many as three Rasenshuriken on his own before tiring out. While in Sage Mode, he can create two Rasenshuriken per transformation. After the second, he must re-enter Sage Mode in order to be able to create additional Rasenshuriken. However, after improving his Sage Mode he's able to use 5 at a single time and while in his Kurama Mode or Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, he can use the Rasenshuriken an unlimited number of times. Its four points are very sharp, enough to cut through rock The technique is extremely heavy, as Hasaru Sensei was surprised Homura could throw the highly dense chakra, even in Sage Mode.
After traveling a certain distance or colliding with a target that it can't slice through, the central sphere of the Rasenshuriken detonates, producing a vortex of wind in the immediate area. Within this vortex, countless microscopic wind blades are created, so many that even the Sharingan can't count them all. The wind blades pierce every cell in the body, disconnecting them from the Chakra circulatory system and so preventing them from providing their physical energy to the chakra-creation process. Because of this, the target loses their ability to create and mold chakra, damage which cannot be healed by medical ninjutsu. Lady Keoni likens the damage to poison, and warns that if the damage is great enough, those affected by it won't be able to use jutsu again.
The Sage Art: Super Tailed Beast Rasenshuriken: is a technique utilised by Homura. It is described as the most marvellous ninjutsu of all time. After he received the power of the Sage of the Six Paths. Along with eight shadow clones, Homura creates nine Rasenshuriken, each infused with the special chakra properties of a specific tailed beast. After throwing all of them, it causes many huge explosions devastating the enemy upon impact.
There are five basic types into which the nature of chakra can be transformed, called the Five Elements Nature Transformations (五大性質変化, Godai Seishitsu Henka). These five types are also called elements and are not only the origin of the names of the Five Great Shinobi Countries, but also the foundation of all elemental ninjutsu. The five basic natures are all connected to each other in a circle, each being weaker than one and stronger than another. Due to getting the powers of the Sage of Six Path's Homura is able to use all five basic chakra natures along with Yin/Yang Release, the five basic natures are:
Fire (火, Hi) natured chakra allows for Fire Release (火遁, Katon), which is strong against Wind but weak against Water.
(風, Kaze) natured chakra allows for Wind Release (風遁, Fūton), which is strong against Lightning but weak against Fire.
(雷, Kaminari) natured chakra allows for Lightning Release (雷遁, Raiton), which is strong against Earth but weak against Wind.
(土, Tsuchi) natured chakra allows for Earth Release (土遁, Doton), which is strong against Water but weak against Lightnin
Water (水, Mizu) natured chakra allows for Water Release (水遁, Suiton), which is strong against Fire but weak against Earth.
(Advanced Nature)Gravity (Latent) (重力術, Jūryoton) A jutsu which techniques that allow the user to manipulate, control, and generate gravity.
(Advanced Nature) Swift Release (迅遁, Jinton,) is a combined nature transformation kekkei genkai that can be used to move with incredible speed, becoming nothing more than a blur when in motion.
Yin-Yang Release: Yin–Yang Release (陰陽遁, Onmyōton, In'yōton, Shadow and Light Style) is a nature transformation that combines Yin Release and Yang Release, two natures that exist outside the five basic elemental natures. Yin Release uses spiritual energy and Yang Release uses physical energy, which are the two components of chakra. This in turn means that all jutsu that utilise chakra are at least distantly rooted in Yin–Yang Release.
Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki, famed as the "Sage of Six Paths", utilised Yin–Yang Release with the Creation of All Things Technique: by creating form out of nothingness (Yin Release) and then giving the form life (Yang Release), he was able to create the nine tailed beasts from the Ten-Tails' chakra. Centuries later, Hagoromo's spirit gives some of his power to Homura, allowing him to use Yin–Yang Release as well: he was able to stabilize Kasumi's life force, whose body nearly expired due to using the Ultra Izangi Technique, and is capable of healing fatal injuries and even restoring lost body parts. Yin–Yang Release can be used to nullify the effects of all ninjutsu. Jinchūriki of the Ten-Tails take advantage of this by adding Yin–Yang Release to their Truth-Seeking Balls: when the balls surround the jinchūriki as a defence, no ninjutsu can harm them; when the balls are made into weapons, the weapons can break through any ninjutsu, even nullifying the regenerative bodies of those revived with the Impure World Reincarnation. Kasumi Uchiha said that, only through combination of his Yin Power with Homura's Yang Power were they able to seal Kaguya Ōtsutsuki, the progenitor of chakra itself.
Kurama more commonly known as the Nine-Tails (九尾, Kyūbi), is one of the nine tailed beasts. Centuries of being regarded as a mindless monster and sought after as a tool for war caused Kurama to hate humans. After being sealed into Homura Kitsune, Kurama attempts to maintain its cynical perspective about the world, but with Homura's insistence on treating it with respect, the fox overturns its hatred and willingly strives to use its power for the world's salvation. Kurama is widely known as the strongest of the nine tailed beasts. Even with the first Hokage who could subdue the fox, viewed it as too powerful and dangerous to be left roaming free. Even with only half its power, Kurama remained strong enough to defeat five other tailed beasts at the same time. After the Fourth Shinobi World War, Kurama's full power was restored once its two halves reunited inside Homura, which could defeat an Otusuki's giant golem. Kurama later became able to manifest itself outside of Homura, allowing the two to fight independently and away from each other.
Even for a tailed beast, Kurama possesses massive reserves of powerful chakra, required to be sealed last into the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path to avoid overloading it. It can also accumulate a huge amount of chakra shortly after it has used up most of its own, enough to be passed on to the entire Allied Shinobi Forces and be felt countries away by non-sensors. Due to Homura's compatibility with Kurama's chakra, any chakra it possesses is limited for its jinchūriki alone, unless it was moulded to fit the recipient's unique chakra signature. When used by others, the chakra becomes dense enough to be seen as a visible shroud than can further protect the wearer. Using its chakra, Kurama can shroud itself within its Nine-Tails Chakra Mode to increase its power.
Kurama has a great deal of brute force, reputedly able to raise tsunamis and flatten mountains with just a single swipe of a tail. Even with half its strength, it could overpower controlled tailed beasts, smash a senjutsu-enhanced Susanoo with a tail, Kurama is deceptively quite fast, able to catch Homura in Sage Mode. The fox is also durable enough to withstand several senjutsu-enhanced attacks, and block a Tailed Beast Ball from the Ten-Tails' initial form, it is said that Kurama at full power possesses enough power to destroy the planet.
As a tailed beast, Kurama can create a Tailed Beast Ball, and is able to fire it as a beam or rapid blast of spheres. Unlike most tailed beasts, Kurama can supercharge it, creating one many times its own size for much greater power, even on low chakra. One of these was powerful enough to counter a collaborated Tailed Beast Ball from five tailed beasts. At full power, Kurama's Tailed Beast Ball could blast a giant golem through the moon and into orbit.
Kurama can create destructive shockwaves, capable of dispersing a massive Rasengan, knocking back five tailed beasts at once, and destroying entire city blocks when he used it against Konoha. Even when limited through Homura's Version 1 and 2 states, they were strong enough to destroy an entire bridge and repel Shinra Tensei respectively. Kurama also had adept sensor skills, able to detect chakra from great distances and uniquely able to sense negative emotions, as well as natural energy, which it can accumulate and transfer to Homura to create senjutsu chakra. He is shown using Wind and Fire Release nature transformations, being able to generate twisters and breathe fire.
By harnessing either the power of Nature or his connection with the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox Kurama, Homura is capable of enhancing his physical, sensory and chakra related capabilities. Other jinchūriki are also capable of some of these transformations.By simply tapping into their beast's chakra, a jinchūriki begins their initial transformation. They are surrounded by a layer of red, wispy chakra granting them enhanced strength, speed and healing. The beast's chakra supplements the jinchūriki and they are able to manipulate the chakra to a certain extent: Homura can generate shockwaves through punches and roars. In this form, the jinchūriki's body undergoes slight physical changes. When Homura enters this form, his eyes change colour to red and his pupils become slitted, plus his nails and canine teeth grow longer and sharper. His hair also grows longer and spikier, and the whisker-like marks on his cheeks widen and thicken.
Version 1 – or "demon fox cloak" (妖狐の衣, yōko no koromo) – forms a dense shroud of chakra around the jinchūriki. The shroud, a translucent red with bubbles of chakra (reminiscent of boiling liquid) forming all along it, provides a degree of physical protection, but can also harm the user if used to a certain extent. The physical changes experienced in the initial transformation become more pronounced in Version 1 forms. The shroud that encompasses the jinchūriki vaguely resembles the corresponding tailed beast; paws of chakra form around their hands and, in the case of Killer B, chakra-horns form on his head. Because chakra is malleable, the shroud can extend beyond the reach of the jinchūriki, often used to create chakra-arms that allow them to interact with their environment. The most significant manifestation are the tails that sprout from the jinchūriki's body, up to the maximum number of tails that the corresponding beast possesses. As with the chakra-arms, these tails can aid the jinchūriki by grasping to their surroundings. For each tail produced, the jinchūriki gains an incrementally greater boost to speed, strength, and chakra.
The source of the chakra shroud differs between users. For jinchūriki who have not learned how to control their tailed beast, it is the beast's chakra that surrounds them. The beast's chakra will tend to be harmful: individuals near the jinchūriki will experience a slight physical discomfort; those who come into contact with the shroud will suffer a painful burn wherever they touch it; the jinchūriki themselves suffer an increasing amount of corrosion to their body that can eventually damage body parts beyond the point of use.This shroud is typically acquired through a growing rage and/or the weakening of the seal that keeps the beast within their body, and consequently leaves the jinchūriki less in control of their body with each additional tail. While a jinchūriki has never been observed to completely lose control of themselves in a Version 1 form, they become more animalistic and aggressive. One advantage of this is that the shroud can act on its own, responding to threats the jinchūriki may not be aware of.
While Homura has been able to communicate with Kurama and ask for a donation of chakra for several years, this always carried adverse consequences such as diminishing self-control and harmful after-effects of the chakra. After he befriended Kurama, these drawbacks were removed and he can use Version 1 for himself, and is able to transfer it to others, thereby granting them all of the form's benefits. The chakra in this form is also capable of repelling the likes of Amaterasu.
Version 2: (バージョン2, Bājon Tsū), is the tailed beast's chakra being converted into a humanoid shape, granting the jinchūriki an edge in battle without completely releasing the beast itself. Using the jinchūriki's body as a sort of endoskeleton, a dark red, nearly black layer of chakra envelops them. The physical manifestations of the corresponding beast that are vaguely present in Version 1 states become far clearer in Version 2, in a way fully reproducing the beast in miniature: muscle mass increases and beast-specific attributes such as shells and ears become clearly defined. Because the shroud forms so tightly around them, features of the jinchūriki may be identifiable in Version 2. Entering Version 2 creates a great deal of energy, producing craters beneath the jinchūriki and destroying any restraints that might have been placed upon them beforehand. Strength, speed, and chakra are once again increased beyond the levels of the previous forms, the shroud remains a reliable defence against attacks, and other features, such as chakra-arms, are still accessible. It is even possible for the jinchūriki to create chakra-bones around themselves. Most jinchūriki have only been seen to enter a Version 2 state with the same number of tails as their corresponding beast. Homura is an exception, as he has only been seen in a Version 2 state with seven tails. Unlike how the number of tails in Version 1 can measure the jinchūriki's strength, there is no observable correlation between the number of Homura's Version 2 tails and his destructive capabilities. Likewise, although all jinchūriki gain unique, heightened abilities that bring them even closer to their corresponding beast.
Homura has never knowingly entered a Version 2 form. As the seal that kept Kurama contained weakened over the years, he became increasingly susceptible to its influence. By fully submitting to the beast and his own rage, Homura would grant Kurama full control of his body who then formed a Version 2 shroud around him. His ability to distinguish between friend and foe vanishes and he attacks in whatever way will enable him to defeat his target, oblivious to the consequences of the attack. The form itself carries a number of consequences for Homura too, as its corrosive qualities burn away his skin and stain the shroud with his own blood. The regenerative abilities granted to him as Kurama's jinchūriki constantly heal the damage, but in the long run shorten his lifespan through the constant destruction and creation of cells.
Partial Transformations: Rather than fully transform into their respective beast, a jinchūriki can isolate the transformation to parts of their body. Instead of appearing as translucent or dark chakra, these partial transformations fully resemble the beast's own limbs, having fur, scales, etc. Homura's partial transformations have been the most substantial of those seen. In order to break free of Chibaku Tensei, he entered a state just short of a full tailed beast-transformation (which, at the time, would have required completely breaking the seal); the only features it lacked to fully resemble Kurama were a ninth tail, skin, and fur, his transformation otherwise matching the beast's size and possessing all of the other chakra-body parts. After becoming able to harmonise with Kurama, his partial transformations are less drastic, producing only tails like the other jinchūriki tend to or a head for attack.
Tailed Beast Mode: In principle, all jinchūriki can fully transform into the tailed beast sealed within them when the seal breaks and they entirely lose control over the beast. However, doing so results in the jinchūriki's death. Tailed Beast Mode (尾獣モード, Bijū Mōdo), also called Tailed Beast Transformation (尾獣化, Bijūka, English TV: Tailed Beast State), is a way to avoid this. By either subjugating their tailed beast or learning to work in unison with it, a jinchūriki can become a full-scale replica of the beast with complete access to its natural strength and abilities. If they choose, the jinchūriki can pass control of this form to the beast itself.Tailed Beast Mode is devastatingly powerful and poses an untold risk of collateral damage which is why jinchūriki use this form sparingly. Homura has not been able to fully recreate Kurama's form. At first, this was because the fox would not cooperate with him, causing all attempts to turn into it to result in a miniature, comical version of the beast that could not be maintained for very long. Since then he has been able to earn Kurama's cooperation, but the Tailed Beast Mode he enters, though accurate in size, is unique as he does not as closely resemble the beast as the other jinchūriki do their own. Also unique to Homura, when accessing Sage Mode while in his Tailed Beast Mode, his chakra avatar of Kurama gains the rings around its eyes. Homura retains this mode even when he has his Six Paths Sage Mode, with his Kurama avatar becoming many times larger and more powerful than before and retaining the circular marks around its eyes. By combining his Kurama avatar with other two created through shadow clones, he can manifest a form similar to the one Asura Ōtsutsuki wielded.
Kurama Mode: Once Homura learns the Nine-Tails' name - Kurama - their hearts synchronise and he becomes able to enter what is referred to as Kurama Mode. His pupils becomes slitted, the whisker-like markings on his face become thicker to resemble the ☰ trigram, and the chakra shroud's shape alters to resemble a full-length haori, similar to the one his father would usually wear. For all intents and purposes, Kurama Mode is a completed version of Nine-Tails Chakra Mode: Tailed Beast Mode without the full transformation, meaning that Homura is able to use Tailed Beast Balls. He can partially manifest parts of Kurama's body if needed, such as its headand tails and even being able to isoloate Kurama's chakra into one hand. Homrua is able to transfer his and Kurama's chakra to others, granting them tailless version 1-like chakra shrouds that greatly enhance their techniques and while Kurama offers assistance the chakra transfered resembles Homuras.
Senjutsu Influence: Homura can combine his Nine-Tails Chakra Mode and its various forms with Sage Mode to further enhance his abilities with the power of senjutsu. His pupils become a combination of the two forms: the vertical fox-slits with the horizontal toad-slats. Homura notes he can absorb natural energy more quickly than usual while in Kurama Mode. After meeting Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki during the Fourth Shinobi World War, these abilities are further augmented by the powers of the Six Paths Sage Mode and the Six Paths Senjutsu.
Asura Kurama Mode: After obtaining the Six Paths Senjutsu, Homrua retains the ability to enter Tailed Beast Mode, which, in terms of size and strength, is comparable to Kasumi Uchiha's Complete Body — Susanoo. Through the use of shadow clones, Homura has shown the ability to combine three Kurama avatars into a single construct with three faces and six arms, which greatly resembles his ancestor Asura Ōtsutsuki's own chakra avatar. This form is known as "Asura Kurama Mode". This mode allowed Homura to use the Six Paths: Ultra-Big Ball Rasenshuriken, which was able to destroy a large valley with no resistance.
Sage Mode: Sage Mode is known to be taught in two places: at Mount Myōboku by the toads and at Ryūchi Cave by the snakes. Users of Sage Mode must possess "extreme chakra levels" to invoke senjutsu. It is also important that their bodies be strong enough to support the increased power. In order to enter Sage Mode, the gatherer must remain absolutely still in order to be one with nature and balance the natural energy with their own physical and spiritual energies If the user puts too little natural energy into using senjutsu, the technique will not work. Conversely, if too much natural energy is taken in, their body will turn to stone forever; humans will also be transformed into whichever animal's school the senjutsu was learned from.The toads of Mount Myōboku have devised several tools to make learning Sage Mode easier. By applying a special oil, the applicant's body will start passively taking in natural energy. This oil will evaporate if taken outside Mount Myōboku, thus rendering it useful only for learning purposes. The toads also have a special staff that, when struck with, knocks all the natural energy out of the gatherer, thus reversing any transformations before they can become permanent and the user turns to stone.
There are many advantages of Sage Mode which includes:
The user's physical strength, speed, stamina, reflexes, perception, and durability are drastically enhanced.
The user's ninjutsu, genjutsu, and taijutsu become more powerful.
The user can manipulate natural energy.
Those who have mastered the Sage Techniques of Mount Myōboku have shown the ability to turn the natural energy around them into an extension of their body to increase the reach of their attacks.
The user can sense chakra around them and can sense attacks without the need to see them.
When facing an opponent that can drain chakra, this can prove to be fatal to the opponent if they absorbed too much chakra and will be turned to stone if they haven't had training with Sage Mode in the past. Furthermore, the user of Sage Mode can hold still to absorb more natural energy for the opponent to absorb and turn their own chakra absorption against them.
In order to gather enough natural energy to initiate the transformation into Sage Mode, the user must remain perfectly still, leaving them vulnerable. Users have at times been shown entering Sage Mode without this preparation.
Because the user needs to move during combat, the senjutsu chakra cannot be replenished, which means the user can't stay within this state for extended periods of time. Naruto states it is possible to lengthen the time limit.
Bypassing the Disadvantages
The Sage Art: Amphibian Technique, where one or more toad fuses with the user's shoulders and gathers natural energy for them to use Homura also uses this technique
Another option is to employ shadow clones which Homura uses. The clones can gather natural energy elsewhere and are dispelled when the energy is needed, thus transferring the gathered energy to the original. This limits the number of shadow clones that the user can have active at a time to five, for as long as the clones are gathering natural energy, as any more than that would disrupt the clones' focus
If the user continually practises the use of their Sage Mode then the time needed to recharge their sage chakra can be drastically shortened.
If the user is also a jinchūriki that has achieved harmony with their tailed beast, they can drastically speed up their ability to gather natural energy in tailed beast mode to the point of only needing a few seconds to fully charge or recharge their sage chakra. Tailed beasts can also assist their jinchūriki in gathering natural energy with their own chakra reserves.
Six Paths Sage Mode:
Six Paths Sage Mode is a divine transformation gifted by Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki to those who have an iron faith and the guts to never give up. It significantly enhances the user's powers and allows them to use a number of new techniques.
This state is indicated with Homura's pupils consisting of a cross of vertical fox-slits with horizontal toad-slats, and there is no pigmentation around his eyes that would otherwise signify the standard Sage Mode. Since Homura first awakened this power, he has always used it simultaneously with the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode. Directly after obtaining Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki's power, Homura's eyes are yellow and later orange with the various chakra modes he uses after the war, just like his previous ones before meeting Hagoromo. This mode increases the user's physical parameters well above that of Sage Mode and the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, as Homura was able to kick away Truth-Seeking Balls before entering the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode with this power. As a heightened state of Sage Mode, Homura'sjutsu are augmented with larger amounts of natural energy to make them stronger. With the power he received from Hagoromo, Homura has the innate ability to grasp the nature of chakra and comprehend all universal things: his sensing ability rises to the point where he can sense and thus react to the invisible shadows in the world of Limbo.
When Homura uses his Nine-Tails Chakra Mode in conjunction with his Six Paths Sage Mode, he can push his abilities even further, such as being able to levitate and fly becoming fast enough to catch Kaguya Ōtsutsuki off guar and durable enough to take a Chidori unharmed.
After the Fourth Great Shinobi War Homura used all but one of his Truth Seeking Orbs (Orbs that grant the user great power) not wanting to waste the last orb he had at that moment he fused the Truth Seeking orb into his other 3 forms and created a Neo Six Paths Sage Mode Amalgamation which grants him the abilities of complete energy reflection and negation with his Rasengan, Logically regenerative Chakra, all the benefits of the Prior modes and resistance to other Truth Seeking orbs. Since Homura can access this unique Chakra in base the regenerative effect heightens his Stamina and increases Kurama's power as well meaning that both grow stronger ever day that passes giving him multi-planetary durability and power plus speed that makes him 53x faster than light itself while still continuing to grow everyday.
