The user releases a black sphere from their hands which acts as a centre of gravity, drawing in everything in its surroundings to create an enormous satellite-like construct. Though he noted that his usage was inferior to that of the Sage of the Six Paths, Nagato's use of this technique was strong enough to both hold out against a Tailed Beast Ball and incapacitate Naruto Uzumaki in his six-tailed form, though it failed to contain Naruto after he transformed into his eight-tailed form. Despite this, Nagato implied that he would have to make an even larger sphere to compensate for Naruto's transformation.
Madara demonstrated the ability to create multiple satellites using this technique by simultaneously releasing several black spheres and then subsequently drop the satellites on targets below.
VariantsUsing the the Yin and Yang power of the Sage of the Six Paths together, it is possible to turn the target — in both cases Kaguya Ōtsutsuki — into the gravity core for the technique. Once Naruto and Sasuke sealed Kaguya, the Yin and Yang markings on their hands disappeared.
To perform this technique through one of his Six Paths of Pain, Nagato needed to bring his Deva Path in close proximity to his body so that he could channel his chakra to it more effectively. At low chakra levels, it placed a massive strain on his body which caused him to bleed from the mouth and nose. Because of this technique's attractive force, other techniques are also drawn to its centre. This trait can be used to destroy the satellite while it is still in the process of forming, though doing so required the use of extremely powerful techniques.
A drawback, specific to the use of the Six Paths Yin and Yang Powers, was that it required physical contact with the target to be used and both seals are needed for the seal to work.
Chibaku Tensei appears in Naruto Shippūden: Shinobi Rumble as one of Pain's skills, renamed "Six Paths Technique" (六道の術, Rikudō no Jutsu). In this variant, Pain generates a moderately sized sphere of debris overhead, then thrusts his arms downward, sending it crashing into the ground like a meteor. An enhanced, "Full Throttle" version of the technique called "Six Paths Technique: Collapse" (六道の術・崩壊, Rikudō no Jutsu: Hōkai) can also be performed.
In Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, Pain uses Chibaku Tensei to summon a whirlwind of boulders to protect himself against attacks from Naruto in his six-tailed transformation state. He can also launch the boulders individually as a form of attack.
In Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Impact, Pain creates the planetary body and brings it down on his opponents. He also uses this as his Awakening, where he summons a whirlwind of boulders as a defensive system and an offensive system at the same time.
In Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution, Pain and Konan use a collaboration technique where he uses this technique to trap his opponent, and then Konan lines the debris with explosive tags. Konan then sends a single origami bird which causes a massive explosion.
