Chibaku Tensei is a special technique developed by Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki through the Deva Path, who used it to create the moon and trap the Ten-Tails' body inside of it.
The user creates a singularity that when thrown into the sky, attracts objects from all directions and pulls them into the sphere compressing them simultaneously. The surrounding earth, including forests and mountains, are collected into a single point, piling on top of one another until it creates a large sphere. A large crater is left where the earth has been collected from. The Deva Path had to be brought within close range of Nagato before it could use the technique, and performing it put a great deal of strain on Nagato. This strain eventually caused the technique to dispel, by which the large sphere, that was created by it, fell apart again. The technique can be countered by taking advantage of the strong gravitational pull, using powerful techniques to destroy the black sphere.
Nagato noted that his technique was inferior to that of the Sage of the Six Paths, but despite its admitted inferiority, it was still strong enough to both hold out against a Tailed Beast Ball and incapacitate Naruto in his six-tailed form. However, it failed to contain Naruto after he transformed into his eight-tailed form as he broke out of it with brute force. Despite this, Nagato implied that he would have to make an even larger sphere to compensate for Naruto's transformation.
Other Media Edit
Chibaku Tensei appears in Naruto Shippūden: Shinobi Rumble as one of Pain's skills, renamed "Six Paths Technique" (六道の術, Rikudō no Jutsu; ; ; ). In this variant, Pain generates a moderately sized sphere of debris overhead, then thrusts his arms downward, sending it crashing into the ground like a meteor. An enhanced, "Full Throttle" version of the technique called "Six Paths Technique: Collapse" (六道の術・崩壊, Rikudō no Jutsu: Hōkai; ; ; ) can also be performed.
In Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, Pain uses the Chibaku Tensei to summon a whirlwind of boulders to protect himself against attacks from Naruto in his six-tailed transformation state. He can also launch the boulders individually as a form of attack.
In Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Impact, Pain creates the planetary body and brings it down to his opponents. He also uses this as his Awakening, where he summons a whirlwind of boulders as a defensive system and an offensive system at the same time.
In Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, Nagato uses this technique to imprison his opponent, and then fires a chakra blast, and, going through its core, causes a massive explosion.
