Re: Do you think that Naruto and the Kyuubi will make good friends??
Naruto needs to learn that trick that "chakra Minato" used when Naruto was about to go 9-tails, and change the scenery. His internal mind where the Kyuubi is sealed is a dump and danky sewer. Who the hell wants to be sealed there all day?
I think if Naruto pimped out the place, with like a 100" plasma with an XBOX and twitter for the Kyuubi, he'd be a lot more reasonable.
If Naruto is committed to making you his friend, you're screwed, and before you know it you'll be his friend. I'm look at Sai, who had Danzou's training suppress all emotions by the end of one mission betray Danzou and defend Naruto who had magically awakened his emotions and bonds he lost.
Kakashi told elder Chiyo that Naruto has a mysterious ability to make anyone become friends with him just by his presence on the way to rescue Gaara, before the 30% Itachi I believe.
I think the Kyuubi is like any intelligent being, just that it's born with an immensely great deal more malice than almost all humans ever acquire (Sasuke aside). I can see Naruto doing it; however, I don't think anyone else ever could unless they had this ability. I presume this ability is directly tied to his chakra, and I don't know how much of it has to do with the yang-chakra of the Kyuubi.
I don't think the Kyuubi is scared of Naruto because of his assualt to steal his chakra earlier or because of physical strength. I think he takes pride in being the biggest, baddest, and meanest, and I bet he realizes he may be losing his "meanest." That's what scares him, and it doesn't make sense to him. Perhaps that makes Naruto more powerful than a 1,000 FRS's barrage would. I don't know.
Bottom line: If Naruto wants the Kyuubi as his friend via his mysterious ability, or at least ally (i.e. sans the picnics and Bijou-son workdays), it's going to happen. The Kyuubi can't stop it, just fight it. I really like that dynamic.
