The Six Paths — Chibaku Tensei is a powerful fūinjutsu which can only be used by those who have awakened the Six Paths Senjutsu.[1] It combines the Six Paths Yin and Yang powers.


This technique is activated when users of the Six Paths Yin and Yang Powers simultaneously place their palms upon the target's body. The target is then made into a centre of attraction, causing the surrounding earth to be forcefully pulled onto their body and formed into a sealing stone far larger than what is created by the standard Chibaku Tensei. The technique can also seal away the target's Rinne Sharingan, as images of the Six Paths Yin and Yang seals appear within their eye and overlap, as well as forcibly extract their chakra from their body.[2] The only known method of breaking this seal is for a wielder of the Rinnegan to summon the core out of the resulting satellite.[3]


Hagoromo and Hamura sealing the Ten-Tails.

Hagoromo and Hamura Ōtsutsuki used this technique on the Ten-Tails, sealing its body within the newly-created moon. Centuries later, the spirit of Hagoromo passed on the seals required to activate this technique to Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha, who went on to perform the same feat, resealing Kaguya Ōtsutsuki — alongside Black Zetsu — inside of a new moon contained within her core dimension.


  • In chapter 681, the fourth databook, and Naruto: Shippūden episode 459, it is stated that Hagoromo and Hamura used this technique to transform the Ten-Tails into the core of the moon. However, in episode 462, they are instead depicted using this technique on Kaguya herself, while Ten-Tails' body withers away like a tree. Later, in episode 464, Hagoromo claims he sealed both Kaguya and Ten-Tails inside the moon.
    • In the anime, when Hagoromo and Hamura used this technique to seal Kaguya, the Six Paths Yin and Yang seals did not appear in her third eye, and her chakra was not extracted from her body.
