Bee was the one who was selected at A’s tag partner by the Third Raikage. He was selected as out of all the kids he was the only one who could perform Lightning Release: Double Lariat with A. As he was A’s tag partner he was named B and A declared that they would be brothers from that day onwards.
B has always been good friends with Motoi since he was five. After the previous Eight-Tails jinchuriki lost control and killed Motoi’s father and seven other shinobis, B was selected as its next jinchuriki. B also suffered a lot, being the Eight-Tails jinchuriki just like Naruto and Gaara. Despite all the hate he got, he always kept up a smile and trained hard to become a great jinchuriki so that his brother could become the Fourth Raikage.
To avenge his father, Motoi thought that he should kill B so that the Eight-Tails dies with him but B defeated him easily and did not hold any hate against Motoi. Motoi, ashamed of his behavior, vowed that he would not speak to B for thirty years. B went to the Land of Lightning to train with his brother where he found the Falls of Truth.
He learned how to control the Eight-Tails out there and once encountered Monato and when Minato moved to counter A’s attack, B used a tentacle to push A away which shocked Minato that B was the Eight-Tails jinchuriki. After this encounter, Minato gained a lot of respect for B and his abilities.
When A became a Raikage, he didn't allow B to transform into the Eight-Tails completely and did not allow him to leave the village, and told him to become the guardian of the village and protect it. After pestering Darui B learned that Konoha and Suna are holding Chunin exams and he saw this as an opportunity to show his skills but as A had predicted his move, he had Darui and C stop him.
As B is the Eight-Tails jinchuriki, he is the part of the few people who have achieved total control of a tailed beast. As he has a strong relationship with his tailed beast, it helps B by distributing its chakra to him and them having a good partnership.
As he is a jinchuriki B also possesses a large quantity of chakra and stamina. He can even quickly recover and has returned to battles with no side effects.
His fighting style consists of unpredictable moves and his natural raw strength surpassed his own brother’s. His ability to impale his enemies whenever he finds an opening is quite on point and accurate in hitting the vital spots. B can use Lightning, Fire, and Water Transformations.
He can use Lightning chakra and channel them through his blades and can use it on himself to increase his strength and speed. He can increase his Lightning chakra soo much that it can even surpass Wind Release.
In this the Jinchuriki can use the abilities that are granted to them by their tailed beasts. As they get older, they gain more control over their tailed beast’s power. They are also able to transform into their tailed beasts in varying degrees, granting them the capabilities of that tailed beast itself.
A Tailed Beast Ball consists of black and negative white chakra. The user must gather and balance the chakra in their mouth and shape it into a sphere. Even though they are very heavy they can travel at an incredible rate once fired. They are quite destructive and can create vaporize anything that they touch.
In this technique two users perform the technique from both the behind and the front of the user. Both the users must use the same amount of opposing strength. If it is done properly the force of the technique will decapitate the target.
In this technique B weirdly holds his swords. Even though it is strange, B is extremely skilled in using these blades and has learned this style as a kid. In this style, his movements become quite unpredictable.
"I'm the only one who gets to interrupt me!”
"I've got the energy to spare and sparkling charm. The Eight-Tails' a killer bee rockin' the melody! OH YEAH!"
"I float… like a butterfly. And sting like a bee! 'Cause I'm the Eight-Tails!"
"Becoming a jinchūriki, you can lose a lot, and your heart goes hollow, but if you got things you don't want to lose, they become a light to follow! The tailed beasts aren't our only source of strength! What was inside our hearts before the monster... shines like a sun, powers us to any length! That's where our true power comes from!"
"Brother, I'm a big idiot as you said too, and Naruto is as well, right dude? But the ones who accomplish things are the big idiots that don't care about how thick and strong the wall is, yahoo."
