[Manga] Why does Akatsuki target the tailed beast?

I always thought that because there are 9 akatsuki members and nine tailed beasts that each member would aquire one for themselves.

I was re reding manga chapter 256 n realised that the monster that was summoned by the akatsuki leader to draw out shukak out of gaara that two eyes were opened n the other 7 eyes werent.

Iam wondering the aim and objective of akatsuki (which they always mention) is to draw out 9 of the tailed beasts inorder to awaken that chained monster.

So wot would that monster do with the tailed beast??

Wana hear some ideas

I always thought that they would probably plan to take over the world or something like that using the powers of the tailed beasts

Well i'd say to posses a godlike power would always come in handy...demons (all 9) are simply not of this world...their power is unbalanced compared to others in the (Naruto) world.

Each demon has its own special abilities... and to posses or control such abilities...

there is a possibility that they might want to take over a village/villages

That's what I also think. Most likely the village they came from but if Itachi comes to Konoha with a tailed beast, Konoha's in big trouble. Think about it: Itachi's power+tailed beast power=crazy powerful.

9 Jinchuuriki = 7 Millenium Items?

Giant Chained Statue = Pedestal that Sealed some Demon God of Times Long Past?

It's kind of possible, as corny as it is.

...

-Or they could use them to attain an even greater kind of power. Desire to become Gods maybe? Control time and space? There are too many possibilities. It's like that saying "Once you have a finite set of something you end up with an infinite amount of uses".

They dont even need the beasts to take over the world, all 9 of them could take out a village or country if they wanted to if they collaborated with each other.

That's true but they're probably capturing the beasts to make the job easier.

Akatsuki could be capturing all the demons to permanently seal them away, so that there won't be any opposition powerful enough to stop them taking over whatever they wanted.

I don't think Akatsuki wants to seal the beasts, they'd want to use them. And even if they did seal them, who would they seal it on??? Isn't it that you have to seal the beast into a human?

Akatsuki surely is powerfull but i think Kishimoto is decreasing their strenght and they seem not that powerfull at the beginning.

They could conquer a country yes....but it was never mentioned about the GREAT 5 COUNTRIES...

Sand/Mist/Leaf/Cloud/Rock Villages i believe cannot be taken by Akatsuki alone...

It may sound very strange but look at this...

Kisame + Itachi vs Kakashi/Gai/Kurenai/Asuma (top elites of konoha)
result
Konoha wins by default Akatsuki retreats...

Deidara + Sasori vs Kakashi/Naruto & Chiyo/Sakura
result
Konoha wins both battles...
Deidara remains alive...

Kisame (30% chakra) vs Team Gai
Team Gai wins without serious injuries (actually only Gai hurt his hands)

Itachi (30% chakra) vs Team Kakashi
Team Kakashi wins without injuries...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

They dont seem all that powerfull and Konoha is (probably still) the strongest village.
I seriously doubt they can conquer Konoha with just 9 members or even with some henchmen..

(Think of it...if they were "THAT" powerfull they would have gathered all demons already and leave every village in ruins...)
(The Ninja Wars had plenty of legendary shinobi...probably equal or better then the current Akatsuki members and the 5 Country's are still standing)

Both Tsunade and Jiraiya are within Konoha and both can atleast take out 2 members...
Kisame is quite honest and already told that he cant win vs Jiraiya...
Itachi at first said the same but made a brave attempt (but failed)

Right now in the manga 4 members of Konoha are facing 2 Akatsuki members...
I dont know how it'll end but i expect Konoha to win and kill atleast 1 member..

So yeah i can really imagine that Akatsuki has a goal to merge all 9 demonic powers into 1 ultimate creature and equally devide its powers in the 10 rings...giving each member power...

Or summon a god or to become one etc. etc.

What part of "I can whipe out a whole village in one move/I destroyed a country/A clone of mine spits a tsunami/two of us actualy beat a Bijuu without a sweat/I can't be killed/ect." gave you the idea that they don't seem as powerful as before?

I can understand your argument but after seeing the Akatsuki members lose again and again or run away....i had enough reasons to think so..

Even now only a small group faces 2 other Akatsuki members...and the result may still be a suprise but...i got the feeling 1 member will die soon.. leaving 8 left
(1 leaving Akatsuki, 2 members died+2 henchmen died, 1 spy turned against them)

I don't think anyone in the Akatsuki will leave because the leader probably promised them ultimate power and that's why Itachi is most likely in Akatsuki.

Well I don't see your reasons.
The first meeting with Akatsuki showed a pair deciding to leave instead of fighting after a little squirmich.
The 2nd pair got the "I can whipe out a whole village in one move/I destroyed a country", one of them beat a Kage, the 2nd ended dead after the biggest amount of plot device in a row in the whole series -and still died because he choose not to avoid the last blow.
The 3rd pair's power is yet to be completely introduced but they already got one member who can't be killed and can return damage to his opponent while the other has only shown Tsunade-like strength. Ho they also beat a Jinchuuriki and some ninja monks by the dozens.

Ultimately they will be defeated but Kishimoto certainely didn't drop their power.

Gaara's demon used to be sealed in a kettle, what other inanimate objects could do?

As Hunter says, I think Akatsuki hasn't been downgraded. They'll just get killed off by 'plot devices'
