The Shinju (神樹, God-Tree), more commonly referred to as the "holy tree" (聖樹, Seiju), was a powerful primordial entity and the original form of the Ten-Tails.


Long before the founding of the hidden villages, during an era of endless wars between mankind, the Shinju, a tree revered as a deity, bore a chakra fruit once every thousand years. Although it was forbidden to consume the Shinju's fruit, it was eaten by Princess Kaguya Ōtsutsuki, who used the power it granted her to end the wars plaguing the lands. Some time after this, Kaguya gave birth to two sons who became the first humans born with chakra. Angered at the power gained by her children, Kaguya manifested into an incarnation of the Shinju that became its beastly form. Christened by many as the "Ten-Tails", it ravaged the world in an attempt to reclaim its creator's chakra.


The Shinju is a gargantuan tree many times larger than its beast form. After being influenced by Kaguya, it gains her eye contained at the center of the bud on top of it.


Once every thousand years, the Shinju produces a fruit that, when eaten, allows the user to use chakra. This has only been done by Kaguya Ōtsutsuki, making her the progenitor of all chakra.


  • The story of the God Tree bearing the forbidden fruit is very similar to the story of the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil in Abrahamic religions, where Adam and Eve, the first humans, ate the forbidden fruit despite being told otherwise. Ultimately, while becoming wiser, it lead to their downfall by incurring the wrath of God and for disobeying Him. He forever cursed the two and their descendants. After their father Adam's passing, his eldest son, Cain, would fight his younger brother, Abel, in anger and jealousy, which alludes to the struggle between the sons of the Sage of the Six Paths.
