Sora

Sora is a monk in the Naruto Series. His name means "sky" in Japanese. Sora also has the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox's chakra which was enhanced in him genetically which he has one arm of a Jinchuriki. Sora wants revenge on Asuma for killing his father.

Background

Not much is known about his childhood, only that one day he went berserk and wrecked the Temple of Fire, a place otherwise believed to be an indestructable fortress. Afterwards, he was loathed by some of the monks of the temple, and soon began receiving the same treatment as a Jinchūriki.

He wanted to become part of the Twelve Ninja Guardians. He hates himself because of his powers and gets angry when people stare at him. When they first meet he hates Naruto but then they become friends. Sora does not like getting help from people, especially ninja. He did not even want Team Yamato to come.

[edit] Part II

[edit] Fire Temple Filler Arc

This arc begins due to a misunderstanding, Naruto Uzumaki fights one of the monks-in-training from the Fire Temple, Sora, who also uses wind chakra based techniques. After the confusion, the monks and Team Kakashi travel to the Fire Temple

The temple monks explain that the tombs hold the loyal bodyguards of Fire Country's feudal lord. Naruto observes Sora sparring with other monks and becomes offended upon realizing he is holding back. Naruto challenges Sora, but just as the matter is about to get serious, another monk stops him. Naruto realizes Sora is despised by the other monks as he was himself and wishes to befriend him. Naruto visits Sora again and observes him practicing his wind jutsu in earnest, hoping to get strong enough to avenge his father. They later return to the temple to receive news that another tomb has been robbed.

They are later ambushed by a group of enemy shinobi and Sora, unwilling to look for Naruto, goes off on his own. Sora then hits upon the enemy leader, Furido, and it is revealed that he is the group's target. Sora then starts to question Furido, but he does not answer. Instead he just sits down and roasts some potatoes. Sora gets angry and his chakra starts to get more powerful. Furido taunts Sora until Sora unleashes his true powers, before informing him that he is planning to use the four corpses to save the Land of Fire. After an explosion Sora wakes up only to find out that Furido had vanished, only leaving him a clue that he knows his father and that Sora resembles him.

Sora then is assigned to go to Konohagakure with Team Yamato to replace Sai because of Sai's injuries.

Naruto tries to show Sora around Konoha but Sora goes his own way. Sora's insults precipitate a brawl with Kiba Inuzuka and Choji Akimichi, and Naruto and Rock Lee soon join in. Later Asuma Sarutobi tells Sora he knew Sora's father, who is revealed as one of the Guardians involved in the coup attempt. He also shows Sora his chakra blade attack and then volunteers to to help train Sora and Naruto.

Asuma supervises Naruto and Sora's wind chakra training, and notices that Sora, like Naruto, has very powerful chakra. Later, Asuma gives Sora a claw made from the same materials as his chakra blades. It is revealed that Asuma killed Sora's father Kazuma, who had planned to kill the Hokage. Furido then approaches Sora, telling him that Asuma is responsible for his father's death and passing him two "king" pieces from a Shogi set for Asuma. Shocked by this discovery he goes back to training distressed. Then Naruto approaches a furious Sora in the training grounds, who easily throws a chakra-powered kunai through a tree and destroys the stone behind it.

Later on Sora tries to look for Asuma and follows him to Danzo's interrogation. There he found out that Homura Mitokado and Koharu Utatane dislike Sora and don't welcome him in the village and plan to kill him. Before Tsunade can make her decision on what to do with Sora, he is caught by ANBU members hiding in the ceiling. Enraged, he yells at Tsunade asking her why would she kill him. Are his powers really that hated? He then goes on by saying that they are just like the fire temple monks. He looks at Yamato asking him, "are these what you call comrades?" He then changes his view towards Asuma and confronts him, accusing him of killing his father, which Asuma confirms. Sora attacks Asuma, his arm once again assuming a demonic form. While he blows Asuma outside, he is unable to maintain it for long, and falters. He is attacked by an unknown individual (presumed to be a Root shinobi), but Naruto shields him from the shuriken, being injured in the process. Sora then approaches Furido, who says that he must kill Asuma and Tsunade to avenge his father and consolidate the "two kings" (the Feudal Lord and the Hokage) into a single leader by eliminating the Hokage.

Later that night, Naruto catches Sora going after Tsunade. Sora retreats as Shizune and a few other ninja arrive, and Naruto pursues him. At that moment, a mysterious lightning storm strikes, cutting off power to the entire village. Meanwhile, Naruto chases Sora for attempting to kill Tsunade. Asuma, commanded by Tsunade to follow Sora and Naruto, finally catches up to them. Asuma realizes that the four invaders plan to annihilate the entire village using the lightning powers of the corpses that they stole. The revelation shocks Sora. As Asuma leaves to help hold off the attackers, he instructs Naruto to continue to pursue Sora.

Later on Furido tells Sora that when The Nine Tailed Fox rampaged around Konoha, The Fourth Hokage sealed the beast with in Naruto Uzumaki and the nine tails chakra that had slipped out when it rampaged was sealed it into Sora by Kazuma and the fire temple. He, Furido, then proceeds to use the Five Elements Unseal to release all of the demon fox's power. Sora grows a demon fox cloak similar to Naruto's, except that he has three spikes on each side of his face.

Like Naruto, he grows tails which increase in number the longer he keeps himself in the demon fox cloak state. If nine tails grow, he will turn into a real demon fox.

Later, as Asuma and Naruto arrive, it is revealed that Furido is actually Kazuma, Sora's father.

[edit] Abilities

  • Element: Wind

Sora is a wind natured chakra user like Naruto. He is able to manipulate wind into chakra infused wind blades of energy capable of cutting through most material including rock. He wields a tri-bladed death claw that he learns to infuse with chakra after learning the jutsu from Asuma Sarutobi. Asuma gives him a new blade after his old one is destroyed in a fight with Naruto. Sora also uses Taijutsu known only to the monks of the Fire Temple.

Sora's father Kazuma spliced his cellular make-up with excess chakra of the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox to create a pseudo-jinchūriki. Sora is capable, though unwillingly it seems, to transform into a miniature kyūbi much like Naruto. In this form, he has all the power and resistance to injury and attack of an unsealed kyūbi.

[edit] Trivia

  • Sora is introduced as a "filler" character in Naruto: Shippūden, and thus doesn't make an appearance in the manga.

Sora Jinchūriki Forms


When the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox attacked Konohagakure, it left a lot of chakra in the air, which was later gathered by Kazuma, one of the 12 Guard Ninjas of Fire, who wanted to create a Jinchūriki weapon for Konoha. After five years of experimentation, he finally was able to implant the demon fox's chakra into the cells of his son, Sora. Because Sora does not have the Tailed Beast sealed within him, but only has his cells combined with its chakra, he is refered to as a Pseudo-Jinchūriki.

Even though Sora does not have the actual demon fox inside of him, the chakra implanted within him can react to the demon fox within Naruto Uzumaki as it somehow called out to him when Naruto was about to be killed by Fuka. Unlike Naruto, he doesn't have as much chakra as the demon fox would usually generate when Naruto is in his demon fox cloak, nor can he control it. Instead, he becomes overwhelmed by the fox chakra's destructive instinct; when in his fox cloak, Sora threatens to kill anyone who stands in his way.


Jinchūriki Form

Unlike Naruto, who has a stable and controlled combination of his own chakra and the Nine-Tailed Demon Fox's chakra (because of the Fourth Hokage's seal), Sora can't control the chakra added to his cells. To stabilize this, his father applied a sealing jutsu on Sora several times to keep him and the chakra under control.

When Sora feels frustrated or is in a state of great anger, the chakra can change his right arm into a demonic form. It would seem that he is not aware at all about the change of his arm, and has first noticed it when his father told him.

[edit] One-Tailed Transformation

When his father would stop applying the seals or when he completely releases it, he uses the Five Elements Unseal, which the chakra can run loose and slowly take over Sora's body.

Like Naruto, when the chakra is released from Sora in large amounts, a demon fox cloak will form around Sora, initially and slowly he will begin to grow a chakra tail. In addition, like with Naruto, during this transformation, Sora's hair becomes spiked, his canines longer and sharper, and his eyes turned to slitted fox-like eyes. Also in this form, the chakra surrounding him damages the people around him. In addition, he is also able to inflicate a painful burn to anyone that comes into contact with the chakra for too long.

Due to being a Pseudo-Jinchūriki, Sora has some different features from Naruto in a similar state (besides the arm) including spiked projections growing from his cheeks.

At first when the chakra was taking over his body and he was in pain, and could slightly control himself, but slowly he began giving in to the urges of the demon fox's chakra, and gains a will to kill and destroy everything, a problem Naruto never displayed until the fourth tail emerged.

[edit] Three-Tailed Transformation

Skipping the two-tailed form, Sora grows three chakra tails. Like Naruto, he begins crouching on all fours, however unlike Naruto, he has now given in to the demon fox chakra completely, and will only growl and roar, something Naruto never really displayed during his Three-Tailed Transformation, where he seems to still be in slight control.

Like Naruto has in this form, Sora will also gain the ability to blow his opponent away using a simple roar of chakra, and has also displayed he ability to use the extended chakra arm.

[edit] Four-Tailed Transformation

Releasing even more chakra than before, even from his mouth, and growing a fourth chakra tail, Sora's skin begins to slowly peel off and in an instant explosion of chakra is he completly covered in the demon fox cloak, resembling a miniature demon fox. With Sora, the demon fox's cloak takes on a yellow, orange colour, while Naruto's cloak is more red.

Also, Sora's legs are thinner and longer, and the spikes sprouting from his face in his earlier transformations is visible in the cloak, alongside his spiked hair, being slightly bigger than when Naruto transformed. In this form, he has absolutely no control of himself.

He possesses the same powers like Naruto in his Four-Tailed Transformation, but his attacks, like the Four-Tailed Strong Ball, seems to be weaker than Naruto's. It has been speculated by Yamato, that Sora's body cannot handle the large amount of chakra.
