cuz it was said that it was a unique ability that only he had, and that it was a gift from his mother.
there has been past nin that were host to shukaku and apparently none of them had that sand protection thing. because they got rid of them when they became too troublesome. Yet they are dumbfounded in Gaara's case because he's always protected by that sand barrier.
So if shukaku never gave that sort of power to any of his previous hosts it just seems to me that its more likely that the sand protection is gaara's own unique skill. Just like his control of Sand. Speaking of which it's possible that Gaara's mother was a descendant of the 3rd Kazekage. Since he had the "Iron Sand" so it could possibly explain why Gaara has an innate skill to control sand.
yeah i forgot about that you might be right. but back to gaara 19 in ninjutsu i looked on wikipedia and gaara definitly has a long list of offensive and defensive techniques . the 19 is well earned
k-oz there is a whole in your theory about the sand controle being his because the 3rd baseed his irn sand on the shukakus host so all the hosts must get that ability but i think gaaras sand might protect him because its got his mums blood mixed in with it and it mite be some sort of maternal protection thingy because like what akatsuki say gaara and naruto are the only jinchuriki who anyone ever cared about so i doubt the previouse hosts parents loved them enoughth to want them protected.
Are you positive? cuz then i'll have to go look back into all this cuz its been buggin me for a while and i cant exactly remember wut was said about gaara's sand protection but from what i do know, it would make sense to my theory for it to be gaara's unique skill.
His primary defense is his Shield of Sand (砂の盾, Suna no Tate?), an automatic sand shield that surrounds and protects him from damage whether he wants it to or not.
it doesnt say wheter its from shukaku or not
lmao brothel no gaara :] and all we know about the shield is that it doesnt use gaaras chakra.
