A tailed beast uses its massive chakra reserve to turn anything from a roar or a wave into a powerful force of pressure and destruction. When Naruto was in control while using Kurama's power, he demonstrated powerful shockwaves by roaring or movement of his arms,[1][2] capable of deflecting projectiles, as well as repelling ninjutsu.[3][1] When enraged or when Kurama took control of his body, he has been shown to use explosions with powerful wave of his arms.[4] The raw force behind Naruto once he enters Version 2 was powerful enough to force Pain's Shinra Tensei back at him.[5]

When used by Kurama itself, it's powerful enough to completely disperse powerful attacks like the Sage Art: Ultra-Big Ball Rasengan, and even knock back fully transformed tailed beasts.[6][7]

When used by the Ten-Tails with a single shockwave, it can destroy mountains while tearing up the landscape for miles in its initial form,[8] as well as use it to initiate its Tenpenchii in its mature form after it recovers from its emaciated state.[9]
