A technique derived from the Outer Path, which manifests chakra chains to bind anyone who touches the user's chakra receivers, allowing the user to bend the ensnared target to their will. According to Obito, this binding power is far greater than that of Nagato's Outer Path. The chains have a seal which suppresses the power of the tailed beasts, and according to the Five-Tails, also cause a great deal of pain to their victims.
Obito not only used this method to control his Six Paths of Pain, but also the tailed beasts sealed within them, using just a single receiver embedded into the left side of each of the reincarnated jinchūriki's chests. This also served to bind the chakra of the tailed beasts to the jinchūriki while still remaining in Obito's possession via the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path, permitting him to quickly reseal them inside the statue should the receivers be removed.
Upon retrieving his Rinnegan and gaining control over the Demonic Statue, Madara used it to produce chains which had a dragon head-shaped tip, with which he was able to quickly restrain and seal all nine tailed beasts into the statue. The chains were able to prevent a jinchūriki from cancelling Tailed Beast Mode as well as extracting the tailed beast from said jinchūriki, and could also be separated and reconnected in order to prevent being intercepted.
