|This is the article on the technique. For chapter 435, head to Banshō Ten'in.|
Banshō Ten'in is a technique that manipulates attractive force (引力, inryoku) at the users will to pull mattter towards the user. It has the same five second limit as the Shinra Tensei as stated by Chōji. It is possible to attract multiple targets at once, causing them to collide with each other. Nagato primarily used this technique through the Deva Path.
An enhanced, "Full Throttle" version of Banshō Ten'in appears in Naruto Shippūden: Shinobi Rumble, called "Banshō Ten'in: Dōmetsu" (万象天引・導滅, Literally meaning: Heavenly Attraction of All of Creation: Guiding Destruction).
The names of Banshō Ten'in and its companion ability, Shinra Tensei, are derived from Shinra Banshō (神羅万象, Literally meaning: Everything Covered by God), a Japanese four-character idiom and homophone variant of Shinra Banshō (森羅万象, Literally meaning: All-Covering Forests and Ten Thousand Things), a Buddhist idiom which has come to mean "All of Nature" or "All of Creation".
