Chomei (重明, Chōmei), more commonly known as the Seven-Tails (七尾, Nanabi, Shichibi), is one of the nine tailed beasts. It was last sealed within Fū from Takigakure.

  • Species: Kabutomushi
  • Classification: Tailed Beast
  • Jinchūriki: Fū – Naruto Uzumaki
  • Affiliation: Takigakure

Background Chomei

Chōmei and the tailed beasts first came into being in the waning days of Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki, who used his Creation of All Things Technique to divide the Ten Tails’ chakra into nine separate bodies and giving each a name. Some time after being created, the Sage explained to the young tailed beasts that a link existed between them despite their separation.

He also foretold of a day when they would be brought together again – though not as they were – and that at that time someone would emerge to show them what true power is. In the anime, before his death, Hagoromo sent Chomei to live in a temple built for the purpose of protecting it in a closed forest region covered by mosses.

At some point in the past, Chōmei became affiliated with Takigakure, making it the only tailed beast known not to belong to Five Great Shinobi Countries. In the anime, this feat is attributed to the village’s reputation of frequently producing skilled jōnin. Decades later, the tailed beast would end up being sealed within Fū.

Chomei Personality

Chōmei seems to have a happy-go-lucky personality – which it seemingly shares with its jinchūriki as shown when it introduced itself to Naruto, referring to itself as “Lucky Seven Chōmei” (ラッキーセブン重明, Rakkī sebun Chōmei), which might be an allusion to the fact that it has seven tails and the number seven having long been seen as a lucky as well as a happy number. It also had a habit of using the word lucky in conversation, reflecting its personality.

Appearance Chomei

Chōmei resembles a blue, armoured kabutomushi (カブトムシ, rhinoceros beetle), with six of its seven tails resembling green insect wings, along with an actual seventh tail, all growing from the end of its abdomen. The stem of the tail is green but the wings are orange.

Its eyes seem to be covered by a helmet-like skull, from inside of which, an orange glow can be seen. It also has spike protrusions on its shoulders and a row of slits on each shoulder, and six legs — three on each side.

The legs are also covered by the blue armour, with the exception of extreme ends which are green in colour. It has two pincers with three parts on its face, covering a mouth full of sharp teeth. On its back behind its head, it has a large two sectioned horned protrusion.

During the last remaining days of the Sage of Six Paths, Chōmei was just in its larval stage of development, was completely green aside from its tails which were a lighter shade of green, having seven full tails instead of wings, and red eyes.

Abilities Chomei

As a tailed beast, Chōmei possesses extremely large amounts of chakra that it can share with others and can use the Tailed Beast Ball. Using its wings, it can emit blinding powder and has the ability to fly.

It also utilises insect based attacks, such as biting or ramming its horn into the enemy. In the anime, it can also create a Cocoon which could slow down Chakra Absorption Techniques. It has immense durability, able to withstand being slammed into the ground by Kurama.

Interlude Chomei

In Naruto’s Footsteps: The Friends’ Paths

In the anime, during a joint Chūnin Exams between Konohagakure and Sunagakure, Fū attempted to stop the Suna nin Hōichi from extracting Shukaku from its host Gaara. Her failed attempt caused her to draw the attention of Hōichi, who also began extracting Chōmei from Fū.

Ultimately, the extraction was stopped by the intervention of Neji Hyūga, who used his Gentle Fist to block the chakra points from which Chōmei was being extracted, thereby repelling the chains.

Fū was later captured by Akatsuki members Kakuzu and Hidan, leading to Chōmei being extracted from its jinchūriki and sealed within the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path.[12
