With the Outer Path, Rinnegan wielders are able to control six bodies separate from their own, each of which possess a Rinnegan of their own and are able to use one of the Six Paths' abilities. Each "path" relays visual information to the original body, as do the creatures summoned through the [[Animal Path]] technique and the [[King of Hell]],<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 556, pages 5-6</ref> which possess Rinnegan of their own. To control the bodies, they would each be pierced with [[chakra receivers]], which allow the original body to transmit chakra directly to them, most effectively done by transmitting from a high location or remaining close to the bodies. A more powerful binding can also be used to control the bodies, in which [[Demonic Statue Chains|chakra chains]] form between the receivers and the hand of the one controlling them.

Users

The Outer Path (外道, Gedō) is the seventh path, an ability granted to the wielder of the Rinnegan. With the Outer Path, the user is able to control life and death by reviving the dead, bind and restrict foes, as well as create and control the Six Paths of Pain.

Overview

Because this path ability gives him power over life and death, Nagato could use the Outer Path: Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique to resurrect Madara Uchiha by summoning his soul from the mouth of the King of Hell and be brought back to life. However, to Obito's dismay, Nagato choose to use his ability to revive the populace of Konohagakure which killed him in the process.[1] During the Fourth Shinobi World War, Kabuto Yakushi made note of how he could have Nagato kill the jinchūriki temporarily, store their souls in the King of Hell and then revive them at a later time.[2]

With the Outer Path, Nagato also devised the Six Paths of Pain by transmitting chakra directly to another body, turning that body into an extension of the user able to relay visual information to him, as do the creatures summoned through the Animal Path technique and the King of Hell[3]. After obtaining the Rinnegan, Obito took Nagato's Six Paths of Pain to another level with the reincarnated jinchūriki by using chakra chains to maintain his control over the Tailed Beasts in his possession.

Trivia

  • Gedō (外道; Literally meaning "Outer Path"), derived from the Sanskrit Tīrthika, refers to any doctrine which "treads the outer path" to enlightenment. This is opposed to the teachings of orthodox Buddhism, the Naidō (内道; Literally meaning "Inner Path"), and is thus considered misguided and heretical.
  • The Demonic Statue of the Outer Path may be related to this ability, due to the name.
  • Naruto referred to the control of the Six Paths of Pain as Gedō no Jutsu (外道の術; Literally meaning "Outer Path Technique"), and that the Paths' ability to share visual information with the original body stemmed from that technique.[4]
