nanami no kabutomushi (7 tailed horned beetle)

The Seven-Tailed Horned Beetle (七尾のカブトムシ, Nanabi no Kabutomushi) is a demon kabutomushi sealed within Fū from Takigakure. It resembles a gigantic, blue rhinoceros beetle, with six of its seven tails resembling green insect wings, along with the seventh tail, all growing from the end of its abdomen. It has been captured, extracted, and sealed by Akatsuki


Background

According to Madara Uchiha, the Seven-Tails came into being in the waning days of the Sage of the Six Paths' life; to prevent its resurgence, the Sage split up the chakra of the Ten-Tailed Beast into nine separate, monstrous constructs of living chakra, which would become known as the tailed beasts. The Seven-Tailed Horned Beetle eventually fell into the possession of Takigakure and was sealed into Fū, but was captured and extracted by Akatsuki.
