Because of the demon fox within him, Naruto has access to its great chakra reserves, allowing him to perform jutsu that someone of his rank would ordinarily be incapable of using
Naruto can forcibly draw upon its reserves in one of two ways: by submitting to rage or by directly asking the fox for a donation of its strength. Once doing so the fox's power begins to consume Naruto, eventually creating a fox-shaped shroud around him complete with a number of tails indicating his current level of strength. While each tail drastically increases his fighting strength, Naruto begins to lose his sense of self as more tails appear. Because he can quickly become a danger to those he cares for in these situations, Naruto has begun to limit his usage of the fox's power.
The Shadow Clone Technique, used to create solid, completely identical copies of the user, is Naruto's most frequently used jutsu. In addition to using these clones to overwhelm his opponents, Naruto often uses them to help him form his preferred form of attack: the Rasengan, an attack that grinds into whatever it touches. By using the copies of himself to spin and mold his chakra into shape, Naruto can form the Rasengan without the hassle required to create it single handedly. In Part II, Naruto trains with his shadow clones to infuse the Rasengan with his wind elemental chakra.This culminates in his creation of the Wind Release: Spiraling Shuriken , which damages what it contacts on a cellular level. Though this massive level of damage is useful against opponents, the hand he is performing the technique with is damaged as well, making it a double-edged sword.
Influence of the Nine tailed fox
Naruto is a ninja affiliated with the fictional village of Konohagakure, and has ambitions of becoming Hokage, or the leader of the village. Due to being the host for the nine-tailed demon fox, a malevolent creature that attacked Konohagakure, he is ostracized by the other villagers. He compensates for this with his cheerful and boisterous personality, and over the course of the series, manages to befriend several other Konohagakure ninja, as well as ninja from other villages.
