According to Madara Uchiha, the Four-Tails came into being near the end of the waning days of the Sage of the Six Paths' life; to prevent it's resurgence, the Sage split up the demon's chakra of the Ten-Tailed Beast into nine separate, monstrous constructs of living chakra, which would become known as the tailed beasts. The Four-Tailed Monkey eventually fell into the possession of Iwagakure and was sealed into Rōshi at a young age
Activity inside Rōshi
As the jinchūriki of the Four-Tails, Rōshi had the ability to use its power of Lava Release, a combination of fire and earth the likes of which have rarely been seen outside of kekkei genkai.
Hunt for Itachi arcEdit
After an unseen and difficult battle with Kisame Hoshigaki of Akatsuki, Rōshi was somehow defeated and captured by Kisame. Kisame had difficulty capturing Rōshi because of the Four-Tails' ability of Lava Release. The Four-Tails was later extracted and sealed, leading to Rōshi's death.
