Re: Previous 9 tails jinchuriki
The Kyuubi was a beast closely linked to the Uchiha clan (it was the Bijuu they probably carried around for generations). There's nothing stating that Konoha had control of it until of recent events (16 years ago). Madara most likely used the Kyuubi to keep his clan high and mighty (he was the only one to be able to control it with such perfection, at least that's what the panels said).
