However, this unknowingly interfered with Hinata's attempts to give Naruto a red scarf she knitted to confess her feelings for him.
He would later stop wearing his mother's scarf in Hinata's presence after realising his own feelings for Hinata.
With his mother and B's help, Naruto managed to best Kurama in combat and take most of its chakra.
During the start of the Fourth Shinobi World War, Kurama tried instil doubt into Naruto by telling him that shouldering the hatred of an entire war was futile and reminding him of his failure to save Sasuke from revenge, but Naruto refuted with brimming confidence that regardless of the odds, he would still find a way to do something about them, before the young shinobi promised to someday resolve the fox's own hatred as well.
When Naruto successfully freed Son Gokū from Obito's control, Kurama finally became convinced of Naruto's word and offered to meld its chakra with his as a coalition, to which the young shinobi then removed the seal that restrained it and happily acknowledged the fox as his teammate from Konohagakure.
He was also the one who gave Naruto his name, with the boy named after the protagonist in his "The Tale of the Utterly Gutsy Shinobi" novel, thus making him Naruto's godfather.
Their relationship soon became even more antagonistic when Naruto discovered that he could potentially kill his comrades while under the fox's influence, which made him resolve to rely on his own power and find other ways to get stronger.
However, after he defeated Pain, Naruto realised that even though he had mastered Sage Mode, he could still not avoid using Kurama's power and sought Killer B, the jinchūriki of Gyūki, to learn how to control it.
Despite audibly reproaching him for making such a claim, Kurama nevertheless had developed a level of respect for Naruto and his determination, even noting that he was different from the humans it had previously encountered, therefore allowing Naruto to utilise the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode without consequence.
Kurama then intentionally aided Naruto when the reincarnated Madara was fighting against one of Naruto's shadow clones and the Fourth Division, saying it would rather choose Naruto than be manipulated by the Uchiha again.
