Chōmei (重明, "Principal Brightness"), also known as the Seven-Tailed Horned Beetle (七尾カブトムシ, "nanabi kabutomushi" in Japanese). is a tailed beast that was previously sealed inside of Fū, a kunoichi hailing from Takigakure. Sometime after the Fourth Shinobi World War, it was later sealed inside of Takeya Shizen, a shinobi born in Getsugakure.
Chōmei first came into being in the waning days of the Sage of the Six Paths, who used his Creation of All Things ability to separate the Ten-Tails' chakra from its body and divide it into nine separate constructs in order to ensure that it would never resurface after his death. Some time after being created, the Sage sat down with all the young tailed beasts and told them that they would always be together even when separated, and that one day they would become one entity again with different names as well as forms than they did then when the time came for them to understand what true power is. Chōmei eventually fell into the possession of Takigakure and was sealed into Fū, but was captured and extracted by Akatsuki. After the Fourth Shinobi World War, it fell into the hands of Getsugakure along with Saiken and sealed into one of two individuals in order to keep its powers from falling into dangerous hands.
Chōmei seems to have a happy, go-lucky persona — which it seemingly shares with each of its jinchūriki as shown when it introduced itself, referring to itself as "Lucky Seven Chōmei" (ラッキーセブン重明, Rakkī sebun Chōmei) which might be an allusion to the fact that it has seven tails and the number seven having long been seen as a lucky as well as a happy number.
Chōmei resembles a blue, armoured kabutomushi, with six of its seven tails resembling green insect wings, along with the seventh tail, all growing from the end of its abdomen. The stem of the tail is green but the wings are orange. Its eyes seem to be covered by a helmet-like skull, from inside of which, an orange glow can be seen. It also has spike protrusions on its shoulders and a row of slits on each shoulder, and six legs — three on each side. The legs are also covered by the blue armour, however the last segment on each leg is not covered and therefore green. During the last remaining days of the Sage of the Six Paths, Chōmei was just in its larval stage of development but still had its tails.
As the third strongest of the nine tailed beasts, the Seven-Tails boasts a substantial amount of power; able to destroy whole villages with just a swipe of one of its many tails. It, like all other tailed beasts, is capable of creating a ball of pure chakra to attack enemies, a technique shown to cause destruction to whatever it comes in contact with. The Seven-Tails is also quite durable - shown by it's appearance - capable of taking on multiple attacks head-on without any significant damage.
The kabutomushi (カブトムシ, Japanese for "rhinoceros beetle") is among the largest of beetles found in the world. They are also among the strongest animals on the planet in relation to their own size. Its penchant for fighting other males of the species has made them a popular gambling subject in Asia. Beetles are characterized by a hard exoskeleton and fore-wings, which creates a flexible armoured defence. The fore-wings are not used for flight, but tend to cover the hind part of the body and protect the second pair of wings that are used for that purpose. It is also frequently depicted in popular media as a common cartoon character for various uses.
