Kurama, introduced as the Nine-Tailed Fox or Kyuubi, is a major character from the Naruto series. He appears in PlayStation All-Stars Fanfiction Royale.
Kurama first came into existance when a powerful man, known as the Sage of the Six Paths, divided the power of a Ten-Tailed Beast into nine creatures, referred to as Tailed Beasts or Bijuu. each with a different number of tails ranging from one to nine. Kurama grew in power, and soon became revered as the most powerful Tailed Beast. After years of war, the five countries of Shinobi eventually settled on a peace treaty, but the matter of the nine Tailed Beasts needed to be dealt with. Each country decided that the shinobi villages would all recieve a Tailed Beast as a balance of power, and would seal each Beast within a human host, known as a Jinchuuriki. Prior to Kurama's sealing, Madara Uchiha used his Mangekyo Sharingan to brainwash him during the war, leading to Kurama's deep hatred of the man. After Madara was defeated by Hashirama Senju of the Hidden Leaf Village, he was sealed into Hashirama's wife, Mito Uzumaki. Years later..Kushina Uzumaki, a transfer shinobi from the Hidden Eddy Village, arrived in the Hidden Leaf and became Kurama's host. However, in later years Kushina married Minato Namikaze and became pregnant with his child, and childbirth could lead to Kurama escaping her body, due to the nature of the technique used to seal him. A masked man, claiming to be Madara Uchiha, arrived and took advantage of the situation, threatening to kill their newborn son, Naruto, if Minato didn't hand over Kushina and the Nine-Tails. The masked man managed to free Kurama, and immediately took control of him in order to attack the Leaf. Minato managed to push the man back and forced him to retreat, but, with no other choice, decided to seal Kurama within Naruto's body.
