Shukaku was sealed into other 2 people before Gaara?

Discussion in 'Konoha TV' started by Deleted member 73050, Jun 1, 2007.

  1. In episode 16, Chiyou said that Shukaku Ichibi was sealed in two other people before Gaara, and they extracted him from them.

    Why did they have to extract Shukaku and kill those two people? They weren't enough for Shukaku and went crazy or something like that?

    Was that part a filler because I don't remember that part in the manga. :huh

    I haven't read that chapter in for-fucking-ever, but it's highly possible it was canon.

    Whether it is or not, it doesn't affect the storyline at all.

    As far as why they extracted it twice I'd say is because the other two weren't suited to be the Sand's "weapon."

    The council mentions something that Gaara can possibly go "out of control" because of the Shukaku, so it's possible they're speaking from experience of the previous two who may have lost their sanity with it.

    It means the experiment failed somehow, and they just passed to the next subject. Gaara would be one of those too, but he was able to survive the assasinations.

    It wasn't filler. I assume they took it how because the owner went crazy or because they couldn't fight anymore.

    Why does it have to be a failure? Maybe those people just got old, and it's something that's passed down with the generations?

    They already explained in a way, no one could control the Shukaku. Very few people are able to control the beasts. It seems only babies can do it, and Gaara just happened to be the baby chosen.

    But even that was listed as a failure because they couldn't control him lol

    I think the most plausible reason is old age. You have to remember that if Jinchuuriki die, the bijuu die along with them. So if the Jinchuuriki are getting old, I think they would play it safe and extract Shukaku out in case the jinchuuriki dies of a heart attack or something.

    Yes there were two others before Gaara, this is also stated in the manga. I think they were extracted probably the other two hosts where having difficulties controlling it. Look at Gaara and how troubled he use to be, I imagine the other two had the same problems. No one accepting them in the villiage, trying to control such powers, also people with Shukaku don't seem to sleep hardly any if at all for fear of him taking over slowly.
    It might be old age, but I really see other reasons for it being extracted before their even considered 'old'. I think the tea kettle or pot, what ever he was sealed in before being placed in a host was just a containment for him till they find another proper host.
    As for why not keep him there, remember villiages capture these power beasts to use as weapons.

    The Akatsuki Statue Eyes has nothing to do with the Shukaku's previous hosts. :notrust

    But as for the two previous Shukaku's hosts, I agree with everyone. Either they were unstable like young Gaara was, or that they moved them out before they died of old age. And someone mentioned the tea kettle, that was used to put the Shukaku in storage between hosts. :p
