Summoning: Demonic Statue of the Outer Path is a technique used through the power of the Rinnegan.


One who possesses the Rinnegan is able to summon and control the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path.[2] Rather than requiring a blood offering as other summons do, the statue instead drains the user's life force.[1] In one instance, when Nagato summoned the statue, black receivers extended from its abdomen and pierced his back, rendering his body emaciated. The statue's mouth then emitted chakra in the form of a dragon capable of extracting the chakra of anything it touched, killing humans immediately. After serving its purpose, the statue disappeared while the receivers broke off and remained embedded in Nagato's back.[3]


  • As with many of Nagato's techniques, it is influenced by Buddhist terminology. 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.
