Chibaku Tensei is a technique used through the Deva Path.
Nagato releases a black sphere from his hands which acts as a centre of attraction, drawing in everything in its surroundings to create an enormous satellite. Despite noting that his usage was inferior to that of the Sage of Six Paths, Nagato's use of this technique was strong enough to both hold out against a Tailed Beast Ball and Naruto Uzumaki in his eight-tailed form, though Naruto was able to transform outside the sphere when returning to his original self. 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. Though it failed against Naruto and Sasuke.
Sasuke later demonstrated the ability to perform Chibaku Tensei by clapping his hands, after first immobilising the tailed beasts, and then using them as substitutes for attraction cores and subduing them simultaneously. He is also able to remotely move the Chibaku Tensei he created. Years later, Sasuke can activate this technique even with his only arm.
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 requires the use of extremely powerful projectile techniques. The users of these techniques should also be careful not to throw too hard so their techniques do not reach escape velocity.
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 cooperation ninjutsu 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.
In Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, Rinnegan Sasuke pierces the opponent with the black flames, traps him within Chibaku Tensei and then destroys it with Chidori Kagutsuchi via his Complete Body — Susanoo. His Last version also uses the technique to trap the opponent and destroy the celestial body with the powerful Chidori afterwards. And during the boss battle against Naruto and Sasuke, Madara is able to create a gargantuan version of Chibaku Tensei by merging multiple planetoids into one with the Wood Release.
- Despite Madara using this technique in the manga, he is not listed as a user in the fourth databook.
- Sasuke's usage of Chibaku Tensei bears similarities to Six Paths — Chibaku Tensei in its function, as both have an immobilised target acting as the attraction core.
