Kaguya's five items - concept art by FireEagleSpirit Kaguya's five items - concept art by FireEagleSpirit
The original folktale of Kaguya hime, the Tale of the bamboo cutter ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tale… had Kaguya as the owner of five legendary items (actually she had her marriage suitors to bring her the items as a rather impossible request)

Here is my version of what these items could represent on the Naruto world as treasures possessed by Kaguya herself:

:bulletred: Jeweled branch of Mount Hōrai: A staff that help her to cast chakra in form of powerful magic - made from the God tree branches. I used the sun/moon symbolism here for the balance of power coming from the God tree.

:bulletred: Buddha's stone begging bowl: A treasure with mystical properties related to sealing of souls and/or talking and summoning the dead.

:bulletred: Jewel of dragon scale: A scaled necklace with a dragon pearl at the center. A jewel made to summon thunders from the sky.

:bulletred: The swallow's cowrie: A giant golden cowrie, which could be used as a musical blowing instrument to cast illusions and tricks.

:bulletred: Legendary fire rat's robe: A robe used to cover it's user in fire element, turning them virtually untouchable and invincible - however only those with very strong chakra are able to wear it without burning themselves.

*As she is basically a goddess, it was particularly hard to think about items that wouldn't be futile for someone of her caliber... I tried to go for a more mystical/spiritual concept since it would suit her - also the design was freely done on my style, so I never tried to make them visually suitable for the Naruto manga style.

out of curiosity, are thinking of doing something with the battle avatar that Ashura had (chapter 670 page 19 if you forgot)

I will later :meow: I'm really undecided on their color schemes

What you tough of the designs? I was afraid they looked too fantasyish..

No, no! I love them!

If I use these designs, I may add to/change their powers, though, like adding the power of sucking out chakra to the Begging Bowl ^^

I'm glad to hear that!

Hey and no worries, both powers are awesome! I just wanted to make one of them very spiritual, but sucking chakra makes much more sense in the narutoverse

Gotta say, you caught the essence of the items.

Must have been from ehre that Hagoromo created his Treasured Tools

I'm glad you liked them! They were as hard as fun to draw :giggle:

I agree - perhaps Kishimoto intended for something like that
