Weighing 72,800 tons and outfitted with nine 18.1-inch guns, the battleship Yamato was Japan’s only hope of destroying the Allied fleet off the coast of Okinawa. But insufficient air cover and fuel cursed the endeavor as a suicide mission. Struck by 19 American aerial torpedoes, it was sunk, drowning 2,498 of its crew.
Yamato was kidnapped by Kabuto when he was snooping around trying to get dirt on Kabuto. This happened after Naruto was left with Bee to gain control over Kurama.
A gargantuan beast that originates from an unknown realm. This creature made its first appearance some time before the First Shinobi World War, and would continue to appear suddenly over the next couple of decades before seemingly vanishing entirely, it has not been seen since.
