What are the Tailed Beasts in Naruto?
The Tailed Beasts are nine gigantic creatures that are characterized by having a certain number of tails, ranging from one to nine, and that were originally parts of the Ten-Tails, which is the original tailed beast; these creatures are living forms of chakra. Sometimes, they are also referred to as “Chakra Monsters.” Their bearers, the Jinchūriki, gain power and chakra vastly superior to that of an average shinobi, and they can be recognized by the red chakra they are releasing. The Nine Beasts are:
Shukaku, also known as the One-Tail, is a Tailed Beast, who was sealed into Gaara, the Fifth Kazekage of Sunagakure. He was captured by Deidara Because the beast has the smallest number of tails, it is the weakest of all the Tailed Beasts. He possesses the unique ability to control the Sand which is considered to be the absolute defense due to it being nearly impenetrable.

What is the Jinchūriki in Naruto?
Feared because of the potential for destruction that each of them represents, but sought after for the same reasons, several Tailed Beasts have for several generations been the property of groups of ninjas who, thanks to techniques based on seals, lock them up in human beings whose lives are sacrificed to become living weapons. These hosts are called Jinchūriki.
They are often feared or hated just as much as the beasts whose powers and souls they collect and are excluded from normal social life. Many end up becoming inward-looking misanthropes. However, by learning to use it correctly and to channel this power, it is possible to become extremely powerful. If a Tailed Beast is extracted from its host, the host dies. Only members of the Uzumaki clan have bodies tough enough not to succumb.
In fact, the Jinchūriki becomes the Tailed Beast’s new body. When the human and his Bijū are united, it happens that the Tailed Beast inside perishes if the Jincūhriki does (although the beast revives again shortly after). Additionally, the Tailed Beast and Jincūhriki must co-exist because if the Tailed Beast is taken from its owner, that person dies.
But not all people can handle the power of these chakra beasts; in these cases, the beasts must be released or forced from the Jinchūriki’s body, which ends in his demise. This is because not all humans can handle the Tailed Beasts. This was the situation with a number of Kumogakure residents who lacked the strength to withstand the Hachibi’s amazing power.
However, it appears that the emotional aspect of the Jinchūriki interferes with the Tailed Beast’s control. However, it does happen that sometimes the Tailed Beasts do not like to be inside humans, and for that reason, when they have the opportunity, they try to take over of the body and mind of their vessel, allowing them to be free again. This is done to ensure the survival of the Bijus, and they typically grant them special powers or abilities. However, there are certain exceptions, like the Eight-Tails, who gets along well with his present host, B, and even gives him advice while they are engaged in combat.
Did Naruto have all the Tailed Beasts? Why was Naruto called the Jinchūriki of All the Tailed Beasts?
Naruto Uzumaki is known as the Jinchūriki of Nine-Tails, Kurama. He was Kurama’s host since he was his child until the sad moment in Boruto, when Kurama died and left Naruto, seemingly forever. But, at one point during the Fourth Great Shinobi War, Naruto was the master of all the nine Tailed Beasts, thus receiving the unique title of the Jinchūriki of all Tailed Beasts. This was a feat in itself as it required enormous amounts of power; namely, controlling just one Tailed Beast is difficult, especially if it is a stronger one, and being able to control all nine at the same time is amazing.
This actually happened when Naruto freed all of the Biju during the war and they all became part of him to help him fight. Naruto was able to modify his chakra significantly and became extremely powerful thanks to the nine Biju. But, after the fights, Naruto actually released all of the beasts, save for Kurama, his own Tailed Beast. He actually kept half of their chakra inside him so he could use it in future battles, but the Beasts themselves were freed and Naruto demonstrated how noble and modest he was.
