Six Paths Chakra

Why the hell do we classify it as a chakra type, even though we have freaking zero idea what 'six paths chakra' means contextually? All I see is people left and right use the term in relation to characters' abilities, like 'Naruto got Six Paths Chakra, hence he can do this or that' or 'Sasuke got Six Paths Chakra, but because his body and chakra are different, it affected him differently' etc. So what I see is people talking about and using 'Six Paths Chakra' as some actual known thing, like they know what it is, what it means and what it does, even though it's nothing more than a term used in the series, no more than some possible concept, so why do we exactly pretend that we know what the concept is, that it's some type of chakra and it did this and that?

One thing that supports it being its own distinct type of chakra is that it can apparently be acquired from the Ten-Tails in addition to Hagoromo, and that it can injure the Ten-Tails' jinchūriki and Limbo clones when normal chakra can't. Though the concept is definitely vague enough that articles shouldn't pretend we know what exactly "Six Paths Chakra" is, and instead just repeat what is said about it in the series.--BeyondRed (talk) 18:46, December 7, 2016 (UTC)
Yes, that's my point, thank you. We don't really have an idea what it is and what it does, along with many other 'Six Paths' things, but I think it should be removed as something specific and certain and rather we should just state: 'x said y was achieved with six paths chakra' instead of us speculating on what it is etc. because it's just mind boggling to see it being used so casually and with certainty, but if asked what six paths is, no one has an answer then, so it's contradictory.--Elve [Mod] Talk Page|Contribs 22:00, December 7, 2016 (UTC)


This isn't necessarily something in dire need of being added, but shouldn't it be noted that Kinshiki mentions in Boruto that chakra is a power which allows one to "control supernatural phenomenon"? I've seen some reject the idea of it being a "mystical" power but Kinshiki's description seems to straightforwardly tell us it is. MindForged (talk) 04:32, November 7, 2018 (UTC)

Where is this expressly stated?

Under Overview, 3rd paragrapth. "Therefore, practising a technique repeatedly will build up experience, increasing one's spiritual energy, and thus allowing more chakra to be created. As a result, the ninja is able to do that same technique with more power. This same cycle applies for physical energy, except the ninja needs to increase their endurance instead. Some unique individuals have substantial potential that enable them to exponentially increase their chakra reserves in a relatively short amount of time." Littlegen (talk) 00:48, July 7, 2020 (UTC)

If you're talking about what grows spiritual and physical energies, that's from Sakura's explanation of chakra, sometime in the Land of Waves arc. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 17:28, July 7, 2020 (UTC)
I was referring to the last sentence of the quote. Littlegen (talk) 18:15, July 7, 2020 (UTC)
I don't know if that is something that is explicitly said, but it is somewhat observed, since the sentence is linking that to reincarnation. All the reincarnations we saw got very power very fast. Maybe being a reincarnation gives you an edge, kinda like having a chakra nature means you have an easier time learning that type of jutsu. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 18:43, July 7, 2020 (UTC)
