To interrogate, the Naraka Path need only catch hold of a person, causing the King of Hell to appear before them. With the victim seemingly paralysed, the Naraka Path begins questioning them. After answers are given, the [[King of Hell]] will unzip its mouth to release tendril-like arms and would draw out an apparition of the victim's life force energy in the form of an enlarged tongue. The King of Hell then proceeds to pass its judgement. If the person was lying or refused to answer the questions, the King of Hell would remove their tongue and consume it, apparently killing them. However, if they told the truth, they would be spared, although left extremely exhausted.

This man was a priest of a burnt village that Jiraiya met during his journey to find his disciple. Years later, his body was used by Nagato to channel the power of the Naraka Path in Nagato's Six Paths of Pain.

Personality Edit

While as a priest he emphasised prayer to his followers. He seemed to be a calm, level-headed individual, devout to his religion.

Appearance Edit

In the anime, while alive, he was a tall, stocky, dark-skinned man with grey hair and eyes. He wore a green poncho-like top and matching coloured pants.

When he became one of Nagato's Six Paths, he gained Nagato's Rinnegan. It also had a spiky mop of orange hair. It had multiple body piercings, such as a circular stud on the bridge of its nose, a diagonal row of studs on each of its cheeks, three spike piercings in each of its ears, and a stud on each of its shoulders near its neck.

Abilities Edit

Soul ripping technique

The Naraka Path using the King of Hell to interrogate shinobi.

Although it was physically strong enough to lift a man with one hand, the only ability exhibited by the Naraka Path lay in the use of summoning the King of Hell. The King of Hell is a large head which sprouts out of the ground surrounded by purple flames and possesses the Rinnegan.[1] The King of Hell could fulfil two purposes: interrogation and restoration.

To interrogate, the Naraka Path need only catch hold of a person, causing the King of Hell to appear before them. With the victim seemingly paralysed, the Naraka Path begins questioning them. After answers are given, the King of Hell will unzip its mouth to release tendril-like arms and would draw out an apparition of the victim's life force energy in the form of an enlarged tongue. The King of Hell then proceeds to pass its judgement. If the person was lying or refused to answer the questions, the King of Hell would remove their tongue and consume it, apparently killing them. However, if they told the truth, they would be spared, although left extremely exhausted.

Naraka Path Revival

Naraka Path Revival technique.

The second ability the Naraka Path possessed is the ability to repair any damage. To do so the Naraka Path has the King of Hell ingest the damaged body with its tendril-like arms into its mouth. Then, after some time, the destroyed body will emerge from its mouth, completely healed and rejuvenated. It did this for example to the Asura Path after it was destroyed by Chōji and Chōza Akimichi.

In all situations where Pain's bodies were shown in a combat formation, the Naraka Path always took a rear position with the others protecting it, behind even the Deva Path. This indicates that the Naraka Path's healing ability made it one of Pain's most important bodies.

Part II Edit

Tale of Jiraiya the Gallant Edit

During Nagato's fight with Jiraiya, the Naraka Path was summoned with the other Six Paths of Pain to battle him. Ultimately, they were able to defeat and kill Jiraiya.

Six-Tails Unleashed Edit

Main article: Six-Tails Unleashed

Pain's Assault Edit

Konohamaru attacks Naraka

The Naraka Path defeated by Konohamaru.

During the invasion instigated by Nagato to acquire the Nine-Tails' jinchūriki, the Naraka Path was assigned to reconnaissance. Using the King of Hell, it interrogated the shinobi of Konoha. After being confronted by Ebisu whom it easily dispatched, the Path was confronted by a young Konohamaru Sarutobi who was able to land an attack on it, decommissioning it, albeit temporarily. Later when the Deva Path confronted Naruto Uzumaki, the Path took to the rear of their formation where it used to King of Hell statue to rejuvenate the other destroyed Paths before being destroyed itself, by Naruto.

Trivia Edit

  • He didn't appear to be a ninja, displaying no techniques or insignia to class him as such. That being the case, it makes him only one of two people that were not ninja before becoming one of the Six Paths, the other being the second Animal Path, whose status prior to her death is unknown.
