Kurama, also known as the Nine Tails, was one of the nine Tailed Beasts in the series Naruto and Boruto. Created by Hagoromo Otsutsuki by dividing the Ten Tails chakra, Kurama was the most notable Tailed Beast throughout the series. Among the nine Tailed Beasts, it was by far the strongest of all.
Over the years, Kurama has had four different Jinchuriki. However, only Naruto Uzumaki has managed to create a great bond with him. Together, the two have saved the day countless times, with Kurama playing a significant role in most cases.

9 Kurama helped when Naruto faced the Deep Forest Emergency
Naruto encountered the revived Madara Uchiha early in the Fourth Great Ninja War, and Madara tried out the Deep Forest Emergence Jutsu on him.

However, Kurama supplied Naruto with enough chakra to counter Madara and protect everyone.
8 Kurama overpowered five tailed beasts at once
Towards the climax of Naruto’s fight against Obito Uchiha, the latter used the power of the Tailed Beasts, which Naruto had a hard time handling. Even with Kakashi and Guy by their side, five Tailed Beasts were too much for them. Fortunately, Kurama and Naruto bonded at that moment, and a display of their power was immediately shown to fans. Naruto gained enough power to take on all five Tailed Beasts at once and dominate each of them.

6 Kurama helped save Naruto from Madara
After Obito’s fall, Madara began collecting the Tailed Beasts on his own and acquired them all, even stripping Naruto and Bee of their Tailed Beasts.

If Kurama hadn’t passed the important message to Gaara, Naruto would have died, and the Shinobi Alliance would have fallen right there.
5 Kurama gave Naruto the power to fight Kaguya
Kaguya Otsutsuki was the strongest of all the characters in the series Naruto, and his powers far exceeded those of Naruto and Sasuke. Despite this, it was Kurama who helped Naruto in the fight by giving him ways to counter Kaguya’s abilities. When necessary, Kurama supplied his chakra and even helped Naruto master it in battle at certain times. Without Kurama’s chakra, Naruto would not have lasted as long as he did against Kaguya and most likely he would have died long ago.
4 Kurama intervened when Sasuke stole the tailed beasts’ chakra
Kurama’s power came to Naruto’s aid again when he fought Sasuke in the Valley of the End. Sasuke Uchiha stole the chakra of all the Tailed Beasts to gain an advantage against Naruto. To counter Sasuke’s tactics, Kurama had his own tricks.
By leaving a clone in the shadow, Kurama was able to accumulate enough Senjutsu chakra to counter Sasuke’s Tailed Beast chakra. Using this power, Naruto was able to defeat Sasuke in his final fight.

2 Kurama’s immense chakra saved Konohagakure from Momoshiki
When Momoshiki came to Konohagakure in the series of Naruto, it was Kurama who stopped him from destroying the village. Using a cloak of his chakra, Kurama caught Momoshiki’s strongest attacks on his way and directed everything towards Naruto.
