Bijju Theories

Post Author: Mart

There are two main things driving the plot of Naruto, one is the Senju-Uchiha relationship, the other is the Bijju. I’ve decided to investigate the second plot element today. No, this is not a boring info post (https://shannaro.wordpress.com/2009/08/27/getting-to-know-the-jinchuriki/) we’ve seen enough of those… These are my crazy theories on how, who, and what the Bijju are…

Theory 1. Summons: Bijju and summons have a lot in common, they are both animal themed, they are both held by contracts/seals, and they are both used as allies to aid ninja in battle. Another similarity of Bijju and Summons are that they are masses of chakra.

Though it hasn’t been specifically explained, summons require chakra payments equal to the size and strength of the animal summoned, when summoned, because of their contracts, they have to use up this energy or fulfill their duties to the summoner before they can un-summon (as seen when Gamabunta met Naruto for the first time, or when Naruto got trapped by a giant lizard summon in a filler arc)

What I propose to you, is that Bijju are, or at least were summons at one time? What if there was/were ninja(s) that did a summoning with such power, that they became tailed beasts? What if the tailed beasts out-lived their summoner(s) but because of their contractual obligations were unable to reverse summon and decided to become what they are today?

As Madara showed, it is quite possible to summon a tailed beast. There is one other part to this theory, What if the Ridduko Senin was the original summoner? Ridduko Senin is the only ninja who I think would have the ability to create these bijju. Plus this would explain Gedo Mazo, it would be the contract that holds the Bijju to this world. But most importantly, in my opinion, it would connect the two main plot elements in naruto.

Theory 2. Tailed Disposition: Another pattern I’ve noticed is that the number of tails on a bijju seems to have a significant impact on it’s personality.

From what we know of them, the odd tailed beast, the one, three, five, seven and nine tails seem to be “evil,” crazy, and uncontrolled, or to say it another way unbalanced.

While the even tailed beasts, two, four, six, eight seem sane, are co-operative with their partners and as opposed to the odd tailed beast seem “balanced.” For instance, Shukaku and the Kyubbi are clearly insane, while the Two-Tailed Cat and the Eight-Tailed Ox are sane and co-operative. I don’t think this is coincidence.

I think that once again the bijju are related to the Senju-Uchiha struggle. I think that the odd-tailed beasts, because of their power-lust, are the ones that generally sided with the Uchiha, as seen in the histories of the three-tails and the nine-tails and the even-tailed beasts sided with the Senju because of their ideology.

(I must point out one counter-point to this argument, the seven-tails was given to the hidden waterfall village as a peace treaty by Hirashima, but he could have just used it temporarily. It is also interesting to note the seven tails has six WINGS and only one tail)


Theory 3. Minato’s goal: I think that Minato knew the information above at least to some extent (and the extent that it is true) He has been show to have some history fighting with Tobi and definitely knew of his relationship with the Kyubbi. To me, Minato techniques all seem to be geared toward one thing, killing Madara.

The Rasengan can’t be copied by a Sharingan (no hand signs) and his other two techniques counter Madara’s spatial abilities, he could use Flying Thunder God to get close (or follow the tag into another dimension), and then the Dead Demon Consuming Seal to kill him, (because he can’t be physically attacked) but obviously, he failed.

I’ve always found it odd that Minato only gave Naruto access to the Yang (“evil”) chakra. I think that after failing to kill Madara, he decided to seal the Kyubbi in Naruto to once again combine Senju and Uchiha, like within the Ridduko Senin, and hopefully end the cycle of hate.

This is also seen in another person, Gaara. Before Gaara had his encounter with Naruto, he was the traditional Uchiha Archetype, insane, power-hungry, and evil. During this time, he had a great relationship with Shukaku because both wanted to kill mercilesly. After his encounter with Naruto, he changed completely to become the Senju Archetype, caring, loving, and determined to protect those he loves. When this happened, he shut off Shukaku, not allowing him to surface. Giving up power in order to avoid becoming crazy once again and risk destroying his village. I think that there is still a lot more in Minato’s past we have yet to see.


Which theory do you like?
