This giant centipede was a summon of Pain.


This giant centipede summon had a number of body piercings, most notable the one sticking through its head. and the Rinnegan, implying it was being controlled by Pain. Its face and all of its feet where orange.


Though not much was seen of its abilities, it did use its large body to demolish buildings in Konohagakure.[1]

Part II

Pain's Assault

It was summoned during Pain's attack on Konoha to wreak havoc on the village and cause confusion. It was however killed by a single punch from Sakura Haruno.


  • This summon is reminiscent of the Japanese legend of the ōmukade, a giant human-eating centipede that lives in the mountains.
  • In the anime, instead of one centipede summoned, three are summoned. One was still killed by Sakura and a second by Shikamaru Nara while protecting Kurenai Yūhi. It is unknown if the third was killed off-screen or if it was de-summoned before Pain destroyed the village, but it was seen when Moegi went to save Sōta who was trapped under a building.[2]
