During the final battle between Naruto and Sasuke, Kurama says

[Sasuke] might just become the next vessel for Susano'o.

Throughout the series, Masashi has never mentioned a "vessel" for Susano'o.

Was this just a translation error; what did he mean by this?

  • Speculation only - apparently the tailed beasts aren't the only spirits capable of inhabiting a host in the narutoverse

  • I think that is a translation error. The source that I read have Kurama said, "And now with the Gedo Statue gone, he is putting them all into Susano'o". Commented Dec 10, 2017 at 14:28
  • Maybe it was like, " Sasuke might make his Susano'o the next vessel"(for the Tailed Beasts.)
