Two-Tails Fire Ball
Matatabi (又旅, Matatabi), better known as the Two-Tails (ニ尾, Nibi), is one of the nine Tailed Beasts. It was formerly sealed within Yugito Nii of Kumogakure until the aftermath of the Fourth Shinobi World War, where a young Kenji Nagakura became its host.
Not much is known about the Two-Tails' power. It has flexible muscles, granting it great speed despite its large size. Its brute strength is enough to force Kakuzu to use his Earth Release: Earth Spear to survive its attacks. It is also able to create a fire ball which was strong enough to destroy the sewer they were fighting in and the the building above where they were fighting, which was huge.

Behind the Scenes Edit
Cats are the common species throughout the world, and stories of bakeneko (化け猫, Japanese for "monster cats") are popular throughout Japan. In myth, when a cat reaches a certain age, it grows larger, and its tail becomes longer and forks in two, and is then called a nekomata (猫俣, Japanese for "forked-cat"). These cats were said to have the ability to manipulate the dead like as if they were puppets, and had been associated with strange fires and occurrences. This may be related to the Two-Tails' nickname and its fire-breathing abilities.
