His current host is Naruto Uzumaki, the current Hokage of the Hidden Leaf Village.
His physical appearance seems to be the most basic of all beasts, a fox(a nine tailed fox).
Kurama wasn’t shown to have any ability in the series but that makes up for his immense strength, size, speed, flexibilty, endurance and power than other tailed beasts combined.
