    think he means that in a literal sense?
    like 1 tails with enough training could be > ten tails
    or does he just mean that in different way?

    Hachibi is wise, he is the master Roshi of the jinchuriki. Kyuubi will learn his lesson soon enough :quite.

    Look at Gaara vs Naruto in part 1. Even though Naruto had 9tails, Gaara had more ability and control (if you wanna call it that) over his beast.

    Well apparently the tailed-beasts themselves are disagreeing on this particular point,so I guess itll be hard for us to say.

    I think Hachibi meant that the Biju is stronger when working together with it's Jinchuriki.

    I think he means it in a different way, neither strength nor training.

    Probably talking about heart, teamwork, and love. Gay shit like that.

    It harkens to numerous statements about the perfect jinchuuriki, bijuu being weak, and other random statements. There is a reason why KB is such a force to be reckoned with when he's teamed up with his jinchuuriki. Kyuubi/Naruto fighting each other internally while fighting an opponent would only weaken their cumulative power.

    Reminds of the Zaraki Kenpachi and his Zanpaktou fight in bleach...teamwork....

    I think that he means that all beast are kind equivalents. The tails only mean the quantity of the chakra a tailed beast possess, the quality of their chakra and abilities are equivalent.

    Kyuubi has the more chakra of them all, but so far the only improvement for base Naruto was a very big chakra reserve. Bee, as the second beast, gained "Ink release" and as it went on, the less tailed Jinchuuriki gained kekkei genkai on their own. Gaara, the 1 tailed Jinchuuriki. even gained the extremely versatile sand control.

    It doesn't matter the number of tails, each Beast seems to have an exclusive ability that compensate the less number of tails.

    This.

    The general rule is "more tails = more power".... but this is the classic shounen crap when the "power of friendship" surpass common sense.

    Hachibi use a very simple logic. Power doesn't mean you are the strongest. Kyuubi has more power than Shukaku but it seem that Shukaku has more ability to control its powers than Kyuubi.

    I think that Hachibi is adding the jinkuriikis experience, teamwork, reason to fight (ie defending a friend vis a vis destroying for the fun of it) and affinity (ie fighting in the desert) in equation. Under normal conditions the 9 tailed fox would probably eat Shukkaku for breakfast

    I have a feeling the size of a Bijuu is determined by the number of tails. The horse-unicorn coral 5 tailed Bijuu looked smaller in-comparison to the Hachibi who made Tobi look like a dot on his hand.

    Strongest jinchuuriki so far is killer Bee cause he works together with the 8-tails, thats what I think hachibi is aiming at. The whole chapter is about the bond between host - jinchuuriki and between fellow bijuu, how they are being enslaved by shinobi, they can only be strong if they work together with a host.

    Its not about quality >> Quantity cause the quality of the Kyuubi's chakra still rocks. Have you seen any of them burning stuff in v2? Using bijuu dama like attacks in V2? Using huge ass shockwaves etc? Naruto is probably alot stronger in his pure chakra mode ( cause of the huge chakra) then Killer Bee was back in the day.

    Sure the other Bijuu have FANCY attacks, something we surely will see if Kyuubi and Naruto work as a team. But lets say Naruto wont gain fancy stuff.... Fxcking Roshi's magma cloud got caught by Naruto, V2 burned the crap out of Orochimaru's snakes.

    Most of the tailed beasts power compared to eachother was never specifically stated and has only been slightly implied to involve the # of tails. The only one who's place was Known was Kyuubi (as the databook and interviews constantly state that he was the strongest.)

    Except most of the tailed beasts dont even resemble their mythological counter parts. The only ones that do are the 1, 2, and 9 tails.

    The 3 tails is suppose to be a shark.
    The 4 tails is suppose to be a rooster with snakes for tails and uses poison.
    The 5 tails is suppose to be a wolf with each tail representing an element (mirroring the Naruto elemental system.)
    The 6 tails was suppose to be a lightning ferret/weasel.
    The 7 tails constantly changes. I see some sources saying a bat, others saying a badger, and in one case a bull that looks just like a touros from Pokemon.
    And lastly, the 8 tails was suppose to be a dragon-snake with 8 heads and tails.

    It shouldn't be forgotten that Kyubi has had half of his chakra stolen forever by Minato. I'm not convinced that he still has more chakra than Hachibi anyway.
