Subject Post 1Subject: Nagato Tengan, Hollow King [ 0-2++][Legendary Event Class] Sat Apr 14, 2012 10:45 pm
|The Basics of the Sage|
|Character Name|: Nagato Tengan
His first name, when translated from kanji, is 長, which can mean "Leader", and relates to his leader-like personality as well as his natural affinity for commanding Hollows and Arrancar. This name ended up being prophetic, as he eventually rose to become the most fearsome leader in Hueco Mundo history. He however can't remember the origins of his last name, and believes at some point another being bestowed it upon him.
|Aliases|: King of Hueco Mundo
His primarily alias currently is 'King of Hueco Mundo', or 'Hollow King'. This is because he has actually attained this position in the realm of Hollows, both possessing and having control over all of Hueco Mundo. This essentially means he is the god-king of the realm, holding absolute power and control over all Hollows and Arrancar that live within its bounds.
|Character True Age|: 62,000~ (exact age unknown)
Nagato believes he is the most ancient being in Hueco Mundo and the oldest of his race.
|Character Appearance Age|: 25
His physical appearance hides his true age of over 10,000 years old. The fact that he only looks less than 30 is a true testament to his Arrancar body. He appears to be a relatively young man, at just 25 years old in appearance. His fair skin, and vibrant hair shows just how young he looks.
|Character Gender|: Male
Nagato is a male, and is clearly of that gender. His facial features, body, and size all prove this point. Though, he does have relatively long hair.
|Orientation|: Hollow King, aka King of Hueco Mundo
|The Mind of the Sage|
|Loyalty| Above all else, Nagato requires and respects loyalty to not only himself, but the entire organization known as the Rinyūaru. You are either with them, or against them in his eyes, and wont tolerate an inbetween. If someone were to leave the Rinyūaru, leave him, or even change their ideals from the gaol of the Rinyūaru, he would more likely than not kill you. Because of this, he sort of seems like a dictator, when in reality, he just requires the loyalty of those around him. Currently as the King of Hueco Mundo, he demands loyalty of all Hollows and Arrancar within the dimension. Going against him is the very definition of treason, which results in his full wraith as a consequence. Nagato believes the only person or thing he owes his loyalty is Hueco Mundo and the Hollow race as a whole, refusing to make decisions that would result in a net loss for either. This is actually a major driving force behind his belief in the unification of all Hollows under his own banner. However, crossing him or breaking one of the laws he has instilled upon Hueco Mundo almost always results in death as, according to him, breaking his laws is equivalent to treachery.
Another main character trait of Nagato is the fact that he is driven by power. If he can obtain more power, he will, simply because he believes it will help elevate him to a level where he can achieve his goal. He constantly tries to get stronger, searching out weapons and even people he can use to become not only stronger, but make the Rinyūaru stronger as a whole as well. After the dissolution of the Rinyūaru and his assumption of the role of Hollow King, he now strives to become even more powerful (despite reaching heights never before seen by the Hollow/Arrancar race) in order to bring all his goals and objectives to fruition. Nagato also seeks more power in order to eventually reign over not only Hueco Mundo, but all dimensions in the cosmos, creating the ultimate utopia for the Hollow race. This personality characteristic is largely responsible for not only his current level of actual power, but the fact that he has gone from Phoenix King of the Rinyūaru to Godking of all of Hueco Mundo and the Hollow species.
He will never change his goal. He will never go against his goal. he will never make a decision that might push him farther from his goal. This much is a fact. What is this goal, you ask? Well, to put it plainly, the rebirth of everything. He wants to destroy everything, including every single organization, and then rebuild from the ground up, making a (or at least what he believes to be) better world from the ashes of the old one. This is linked to the legendary Phoenix, which when it dies, it is reborn from its ashes, coming out new and fresh. He wants a fresh start to stop all war and battle and destruction, so all can live in peace in a world he deems fit. However, with the dissolution of the Rinyūaru and various other factors, he no longer believes this is the best plan. Nagato's main goal is currently the unification of not only all of Hueco Mundo, but the entire Hollow and Arrancar race across all realms under his own banner. He has accomplished much of this task by becoming the King of Hueco Mundo, however that isn't the end of his plans. He also seeks to create the ultimate utopia for his race across all dimensions, aiming to completely wipe out all races and forces that oppose him, especially the Shinigami.
Firmly believing he and his race have suffered more pain and slaughter than any other, Nagato seeks to instill this 'pain' in all others. What he sees as the truth is Hollows have unfairly been targeted by every other race and dimension, eg: Shinigami kill them, Quincy destroy them, Humans repel them, Demons look down on them, etc. While he, at the moment at least, primarily seeks to unify his entire race and realm with himself as leader, Nagato eventually (in the near future, at least) wishes to wage war upon the other races and realms in order to show them "The pain of Hollows", as he puts it. After forcing all others to feel his pain, he will destroy them utterly and usher in a new era of Hollows. However, for now this mainly manifests in the absolute eradication of all those who invade or trespass in Hueco Mundo, no matter their reasoning.
Nagato possesses a high level of charisma, and is a natural born leader. This may originate from the fact that his father was a tribal leader and he was next in line for the position of tribal leader in his group of wandering nomads when he was a human, but it may come from something else instead. He can incite revolutions just by speaking, and gain followers just by being near people. This is the main reason he was chosen to become the figure head of the Rinyūaru, as the real leader believed he would be able to get any other people to join the organization, which so far, he has been successful in such endeavors. His name also means Leader when directly translated to English from Japanese Kanji. This was also one of the main reasons he was able to wrest control of Hueco Mundo, becoming its new Hollow King. Being a natural leader manifests as a characteristic of his Spiritual Pressure as well, which forcefully puts Hollows and Arrancar weaker than him under his control.
Throughout everything, it all leads back to one thing: Universal Peace. His wish for others to understand each other by experiencing the same pain others have felt has to do with peace, as he thinks if everyone truly understands each other, there would be no conflict whatsoever. His goal leads to peace as well, as he thinks by destroying every single thing, then building up from its ashes, then he would be able to stop conflict and war before it even starts, thus making universal peace between every species. His entire life has been geared towards the achievement of peace, from his death, to his desires, to his role as Phoenix King, as he leads an organization that is geared towards the same thing he wishes: rebirth from the ashes, and peace born from the pain and deaths of others. Though some might say this isn't peace, but just destruction and arrogance, but he doesn't care. He knows he wants peace, and that's all that matters to him. However, it's important to note Nagato no longer desires peace for all. Nay, he merely wants peace and utopia for his own race, the Hollows. He is willing to go to essentially any length to make sure this sees fruition, including the destruction of entire races like the Shinigami and Quincy.
|The Appearance of the Sage|
|Eyes|: One of, if not THE, most notable features of Nagato are his eyes. The pupils are small black dots in the middle of his eyes, and rarely ever get larger like normal pupils do. They are in the dead center of the rings. Nagato's eyes are characterised by a ripple-like pattern over the eyeballs, with a light purple iris and sclera. These same eyes are possessed by all of his forms, every Path in his Ressureccion has them, and he even retains them in his Segunda form. This is his Rinnegan, and is the primary form his eyes take in most circumstances. With the activation of his Shinime-ga or EMS, however, his eyes change completely in both appearance and function.
|Hair|: Nagato's hair is a (relatively) bright red, though it sometimes appears dull in certain light. His hair is quite long, coming down to, albeit almost, his shoulders. Though, it would make more sense to say his hair reaches to about his chin, because, well, it does. His hair is rather messy, with random points of it sticking out away from the rest of the hair on his head. Though his hair is red now, in his Ressureccion, each body has orange hair, and oddly enough, in Segunda he has white hair. Most consider his hair odd because of its length and color, however, compared to some others, it actually appears quite bland in comparison.
|Jacket/Coat|: Nagato has a long jacket that (from its collar) goes from above his chin, all the way down to his feet. It has a long zipper that goes all the way down to the bottom so it can be unzipped and removed easily, without any complicated, unneeded way to take it off. The jacket has notable red clouds with white outlines all over the jacket. There are about 10, and in seemingly random places on the jacket. The sleeves of the jacket go slightly past his hands, covering them up completely. The collar starts at the base of his neck, and goes up to about his mouth. It covers about half, though sometimes it look like all, of his mouth, his chin, and his neck. It is a very dark black, making him difficult to see at night.
|Under Shirt|: Underneath his long jacket, he has a shirt and a net-like shirt above that. The normal shirt he wears is all black and has short sleeves, as in, it doesnt even fully cover his upper-arms. It is pretty tight on him though. The net-like shirt is worn just above that. This shirt is also black, as well as being sleeveless (unlike his actual shirt). The net shirt is quite tight as well, being about as tight as the black t-shirt, though the net doesnt make it seem like it is like this. These two shirts help Nagato keep his cool, as they allow for easy breathing, but arent so baggy as to allow cold air to get in and lower his overall body temperature.
|Body Language|: When Nagato stands, he tends to stand up straight, as though he were in a military. He tries not to give anything away through his body language, and as such, is quite up-tight, even when sitting he tries to keep his body as straight as possible. He doesnt really talk with his hands either, and prefers to keep others' attention focused on his voice, his words, his speech. When he walks, he appears to glide, though this may because of his long jacket, but it is also because of the way he walks around.
|Bone Appearance|: His bone fragments arent shown, they they might be on the back of his head, under his hair. This, however, is just speculation, and in no way has he actually shown his mask fragments.
|Hollow Hole|: Has never been shown, on his stomach most likely.
|Reitsu Colour|: Deep crimson
Item Name: Power Suppression Weights
Item Type: Made for and by Nagato
Used For:Suppressing Nagatos Power/Energy
Item Description: These are small, black weights that wrap around Nagatos lower legs and forearms. They weigh about 50 tons, and suppress Nagatos powers down to lower than even a Gotei 13 Vice Captain. They bring his usually 0-2 power down to what he would be as a 3-1, which makes him seem and fight much, MUCH weaker than he normally would. He has a virtually unlimited supply of these, as he can make them quite easily. He wears one on each leg, and one on each arm.
Obtained From: He created these himself as a way to hide is energy and power from others.
Fōsupāmu (lit. Force Palm フォースパーム):
This is a very strong Hakuda technique utilized by Nagato. It is a Hakudo strike that aims to knock the air out of someones lungs, as well as break bones, or cause mainly internal damage. Nagato concentrates his Spiritual Energy into his lungs, and then when he strikes with either one or both of his palms, he breathes out, sending a small shock wave of spiritual energy out of his palms on contact. The spiritual energy goes directly through the persons body, and causes mainly internal damage as well as create large red palm prints on the area that was stricken. While this doesn't necessarily bypass all defenses, it can easily break outer defenses (though it still won't cause much outer damage).
Senpū Surasshu (lit. Whirlwind Slash 旋風スラッシュ):
This is a Zanjutsu technique utilized by Nagato, usually to take out multiple enemies or stop attacks. Nagato wields all of his swords at once to begin this attack. He will then take a stance on one foot where he leans backwards, and then jump forward and begin spinning rapidly and striking with his blades rapidly and in quick succession. This technique is quite useful when being attacked from multiple directions, taking on multiple opponents at once, stopping an attack, and countering opponents. This technique, taking advantage of Nagato's extreme speed and durability, allows him to bypass many attacks as well as being able to deliver multiple blows against his opponents. He can rather easily dodge many attacks as well as tank them if he just wants to rush through the incoming barrage, making this technique much easier to use for Nagato than it would be for others.
Kagesai (lit. Shadow Star 蔭星):
Gathering reiatsu in both hands, Nagato will deliver 6 punches into their opponents chest. Each punch leaves a black imprint that when finished will link to make a 6 pointed star. With a final punch to the center, a very large explosion will occur, sending the target flying quite a distance away. The individual hits don't cause much physical damage on the person's outside, but they can cause some pretty big damage inside the opponents body. Basic internal damage is obvious, ie internal bleeding, etc, but this technique can also fry/melt ones insides/intestines/organs, which is where it gets really dangerous. When the final strike makes impact, the explosion also exists inside the victims body, as in, the inside of the persons body is super heated, causing potentially-fatal damage to them.
Bala (虚弾 (バラ), bara; Spanish for "Bullet," Japanese for "Hollow Bullet") Bala is an Arrancar alternative to Cero. The technique hardens the user's Spiritual Pressure and fires it like a bullet at high speeds. Although it is weaker than a normal Cero, it moves about twenty times faster and can be fired at a much higher rate, but the damage is much the same. Stronger Arrancar can also fire a more powerful Bala, while retaining its twenty-fold speed. Nagatos Bala is above average in both power and speed for his level, which is saying something considering the others on his level and hhow strong their Bala are. His Bala is a vibrant red, and leaves a trail of red energy behind in its wake when it is shot, due to the amount of speed involved in firing one. Though it is weaker than a Cero, Nagatos Bala is still very powerful, able to one-shot buildings. The condensed force in his Bala is capable of crushing through even release stage weapons and armor of his enemies, and moves so quickly it's extremely difficult for even the fastest of fighters to dodge.
Cero (虚閃 (セロ), sero; Spanish for "Zero," Japanese for "Hollow Flash," "Doom Blast" in the Viz translation) are high-powered energy blasts that can be fired from various body parts, such as mouth, tongue, hand or fingers, or in some cases, from anywhere. Only Gillians, Adjuchas, Arrancar, and the Vizard have so far been shown to use Cero attacks, and it appears that stronger entities can use it more efficiently, with more power, speed, and even with a larger Cero in general. Various Arrancar and Hollow characters display variants of the technique, such as the Espada-exclusive Gran Rey Cero, the Cero Oscuras that Ulquiorra Cifer can use only in his released form, as well as the Cero Sincrético performed by Pesche Guatiche and Dondochakka Birstanne. Nagato 's Hollow Flash is a vibrant red, just like his Bala. He can shoot Ceros from any and all of his Zanpakutō blades. Though, when he doesnt use Cero from his blades, he forms it in front of his body, or behind, and doesnt need to move his body at all to charge and fire them. Due to being the most powerful Arrancar in existence, Nagato's Cero is above most everyone else in both speed and power. Being able to decimate cities isn't exactly a problem he has when using his Cero, as his spiritual levels are so magnificently high that shooting a Cero larger than Isshin Kurosaki's Getsuga Tensho isn't all that difficult. Nagato's Cero is said to be strong enough to blow away all of Los Noches, and as such he limits it when he is on the Moon and especially when in Los Viejo.
Gran Rey Cero (王虚の閃光 (グラン・レイ・セロ), guran rei sero; Spanish for "Grand King Zero", Japanese for "Royal Hollow Flash") is a Cero that only Espada are capable of using. It is performed by mixing an Espada's own blood with the Cero. The result is a Cero with a much greater attack power and speed as well as a change of color unique to the Espada. It is also many times more powerful than a normal Cero, capable of disturbing the fabric of space, it also seems to spin like a razor upon release as it compresses and decompresses due to the sheer speed and raw power. It is a drastically potent Cero, used only by the Espada themselves. Nagatos Gran Rey Cero is very powerful, and, oddly enough, is the same color as his Bala and normal Cero: an extremely vibrant red. Though, his Gran Rey is much, much brighter than that of his other Cero techniques. His Gran Rey creates a massive, orb-like explosion whenever it makes contact with a person or object. Able to blast apart entire cites, this Cero is very powerful indeed. The most dangerous characteristic of his Gran Rey is perhaps its aftermath; the very fabric of reality is torn asunder by this technique when used by Nagato, resulting in multiple dimensional tears in its wake.
Garganta (黒腔 (ガルガンタ), garuganta; Spanish for "Throat," Japanese for "Black Cavity") is how Arrancar and Menos-class Hollows move to and from Hueco Mundo. Kaname Tōsen, Kisuke Urahara and Mayuri Kurotsuchi have also demonstrated the ability to use the technique. It literally tears open the dimensional fabric separating the worlds, revealing a tunnel of whirling, torrential energy that must be focused and solidified to create a discernible pathway. Nagato can create large enough Garganta for even Gillian-class Menos to enter through. He can also create them quite quickly as well, being able to use them as fighting tools too, such as using it to dodge an attack, or forcing an enemy through a Garganta to a beneficial location for Nagato.
Grandmaster Hierro (鋼皮 (イエロ), iero; Spanish for "Iron," Japanese for "Steel Skin") refers to the hardened skin of the Arrancar, which is a result of their compressed spiritual power. While their skin is strong enough to block even released Zanpakutō bare-handed, it is by no means impenetrable. Stronger Arrancar generally have proportionally stronger skin than usual. Nagato's Hierro is immensely powerful, being the single strongest in all of existence at the moment. Other than Kimimaro Kaguya, no other Arrancar's Hierro even comes close to comparing to his. Nagato's hierro isn't the standard build, and instead consists of millions, billions, even trillions of micro-sized threads of pure energy that have intertwined themselves, creating the ultimate protective barrier on his body. Not only does this protect him from slicing attacks, but stabbing attacks, smashing attacks, pretty much any type of attack upon Nagato's body is, usually, stopped in its tracks by his extremely powerful steel skin. Add on Nagato's normal durability, and he's one tough motherfucker to take down. Toss him into a shredder? Nope, nothing. Cut him millions of times with an extensively sharp weapon? Yeah, have fun with that. Drop a US Navy's Nimitz class supercarrier, which displaces roughly 105,000 tons fully loaded, congratulations, you've managed to make him angry. Nagato's Hierro is essentially nigh-impregnable. During the war in Malaysia, Nagato took a direct empowered and emotional full-strength punch from Reimu Iramasha without suffering any injuries, serious or otherwise.
Negación (反膜 (ネガシオン), negashion; Spanish for "Negation," Japanese for "Anti-Membrane") are energy fields are used to rescue fellow Hollows. Only the Gillian-class Menos have shown the ability to use it. Negación fields surround a target in a square beam of light that isolates the target from the dimension they are currently in, making it impossible to harm them. The field then pulls the target towards the Menos that created the field. Espada have a special cube-shaped device called Caja Negación (反膜の匪 (カハ・ネガシオン), kaha negashion; Spanish for "Negation Box," Japanese for "Anti-Membrane of Negation") meant to simulate Negación fields, which are used to punish their subordinates if necessary. The cube, when used on a subject, traps them in an alternate dimension from which there is no escape; however, this assumes it is being used as intended. More powerful Arrancar, namely the Espada themselves, can escape given enough time.
Pesquisa [/b](探査回路 (ペスキサ), pesukisa; Spanish for "Inquiry," Japanese for "Probe Circuit") is the Arrancar equivalent of the Shinigami ability to sense Spiritual Pressure. It functions very similarly to sonar. Nagato can sense beings from quite far away, and is able to sense even miniscule amounts of Spiritual Power from a mile away. He doesn't have to make any extra form of movement to use Pesquisa, such as Nnoitra putting his finger on the ground. Instead, Nagato can constantly sense and use Pesquisa, and can use it to sense people miles away with even minuscule energy signatures. This can also be used in combat, acting as a 6th sense (think of Spidermans "Spidey Sense"), which allows him to sense opponents even when hiding their spiritual pressure. His Pesquisa also lets him sense exact power levels, whether it be at the beginning of the fight or a person's energy levels in the middle of combat, near-instantly.
Resurrección (帰刃 (レスレクシオン), resurekushion; Spanish for "Resurrection," Japanese for "Returning Blade") Most Arrancar have the ability to seal their power within a Zanpakutō. Upon releasing their Zanpakutō, they gain all of their former unique Hollow abilities back, essentially 'resurrecting' their old selves. When using this ability, they essentially combine their human form and their Hollow form, incidentally increasing their power considerably. As another note, when an Arrancar uses his or her Resurrección, it heals all minor wounds. When Nagato uses his Ressureccion, his clothes also regenerate.
Grandmaster Sonído (響転 (ソニード), sonīdo; Spanish for "Sound," Japanese for "Sound Ceremony") is the Arrancar equivalent of the Shinigami Flash Steps and the Quincy Hirenkyaku; it allows the user to travel at incredibly high speeds for short distances. Use of Sonído is punctuated by a brief static sound, in contrast to the "swish" sound caused by Flash Steps. Nagatos main trait is his speed. As such, he is very gifted in the use of Sonido, not even making the standard noise of Sonido. Due to his base high speed, and his skill in Sonido, he is one of the fastest Arrancar "alive". As a matter of face, he is actually currently the fastest Arrancar in the entire cosmos as far as both his normal speed and Sonido speed are concerned. When he uses Sonido in battle, it's as if he instantly teleports. Next to nobody can actually keep up with his movements through sensing, and even less can see his movements with their eyes. His Sonido has been shown to be fast enough to cross the length of entire cities in a fraction of a second, and is even more dangerous in combat due to shorter distances being crossed.
Special Techniques and Attributes
Dead Body Control: By inserting cloned versions of his Zanpakutō into a body, Nagato can control said body from far away by manipulating his own energy and the remaining energy of the body. This doesn't really have practical direct combat use mainly because it takes serious surgery to safely implant the Zanpakutō clones into ones body, so this isn't an ability to be used in direct combat. Instead, it allows him to control the dead and use the body as a messenger of sorts (but can also use the person to fight. When he uses this ability to control a body, he cannot be in the same thread as a body he controls, as it takes a good amount of energy to control said body. He can also channel some of his own powers through the Zanpakutō clones, giving some of his abilities to the body currently under control. While it is possible to make the person stronger than when they were alive, they have to die first, making this a very tricky ability indeed. He can also reanimate the persons personality and memories, but they are under his control completely. The level of power of the person being controlled is (usually, unless Nagato funnels his own energy into the person which could severely weaken himself) how strong they were when they died. Say Nagato brought back Kimimaro Kaguya, who was 0-4 when he died. Kimimaro would be 0-4 after being brought back, and also allow him access to his own abilities. (This is really just a plot/event ability)
This is the signature technique of Nagato. This ability is constant, meaning is is always on, and the only way to turn it off is to gouge Nagato's own eyes out. This so much isnt a technique or ability, as it is part of Nagato himself. Nagato can see through solid objects, as well as see Spiritual Energy in a pure form, meaning a human would be rather dim, and a powerful being like another arrancar would seem completely blue and glowing. This doesnt mean he cant tell what people and objects look like, its just he can also tell the exact amount of spiritual energy in a persons body. He can also distinguish peoples' exact species from one another. As in, if someone was even 10% demon, Nagato would be able to sense it. Nagato can also see through any darkness, even those that are abilities of enemies. However, the primary strength of these eyes lies in what they can sense when it comes to actual abilities. Nagato is able to accurately pinpoint every single type of energy, no matter how microscopic, used in an ability or spell. This allows him to pick up on hidden traits, as well as target weak points and also prepare for certain kinds of energies that may have different effects on him, making him seem like an all-knowing sage being. This eye technique also allows Nagato to pinpoint weaknesses on enemies or objects. The difference between the Awakened Rinnegan and the old form is 2 points: there are six total tomoe on the two inner rings, and he is completely immune to all mind-altering, blinding, and copy-cat abilities.
This is the base state for Nagato's Eternal Mangekyo Shinime-ga form's eyes. After unlocking his EMS form, he gained access to his Sharigan eyes in his sealed state. His new eyes are red and black, and have a signature tomoe design on them while also possessing the rings of his Rinnegan. They allow Nagato to not only sense the flow of spiritual energy throughout a persons body, but also contains the same characteristics of his Rinnegan and then some. It allows Nagato to keep perfect track of those hes fighting, meaning he can see people even when they use special speed movement abilities such as Flash-Step and Sonido. He can keep track of multiple opponents at once like this, giving him an upper hand against speed-based opponents. Also, when direct contact is made with an opponent, Nagato will gain the upperhand as the opponent will see doubles of Nagato, making it difficult to sense where is actual position is. In active combat however, most of these characteristics aren't very useful. What makes up for this is the last, but most noticeable, ability these eyes possess. Against all fighters, Nagato's Shinime-ga allow him to pick up on patterns not only much easier than anyone else, but also much quicker. It also allows him to mimic enemy movements in such a small fraction of a second it appears as though he's doing the actions at literally the exact same time as his target.
This is a an advanced form of Sonido. It is currently only available to Nagato. What this ability does mainly, is it allows Nagato to travel much much faster than Sonido ever could. He can travel so fast, that he appears to be warping places instead of just using Sonido to get there. Banido is roughly two times faster than Nagatos normal Sonido, and considering he arguably possesses the greatest Sonido out of all current Arrancar, this boost is much more massive than it may at first appear. Banido also completely gets rid of the sound its counterpart Sonido makes when used. As a matter of fact, it is so quiet, that it makes no sound whatsoever. This makes it seem even more like the user is just teleporting to places instantly with no down time. The secondary effect of Bannido is its own push and pull. Whenever Nagato uses Banido, the area that he was once in begins to suck in everything around it (objects AND people), pulling them all into one area. The area Nagato Banidos to pushes everything away from his position, sending things flying in all directions. This makes the ability quite tactical, as an effective offensive and defensive tool as well as its speed properties. The push and pull are of average strength, and get stronger as Nagato goes faster. The amount of mass and weight this ability can displace is pretty large, rather easily crushing and shoving large boulders, steel beams, etc. Being a GrandMaster in both Sonido and general speed, Nagato has refined this ability to unseen levels making him one of fastest beings in existence and thus Banido one of the fastest movement techniques in existence.
Multi-Layered Fiber Plate Hierro:
This is the special, true, and newly evolved form of Nagato Tengan's Hierro and works a bit differently from his normal Hierro. Like his old, basic Arrancar Hierro, this special version is made up of trillions of microscopic fibers made of spiritual energy that are interlaced, overlap, and cover Nagato's entire body without exception. However, this Hierro also has a top layer of pure spiritual energy, which acts as steel plate armor would: an extremely durable, flat, solid layer of armor, as well as a bottom layer made up of squishy energy that absorbs shock from physical blows. The top layer acts as the main defense, blocking punches, kicks, etc, and possibly dealing damage to the opponent due to the sheer durability and hardness of it. The second layer acts as an anti-blade layer should the top layer not be enough; the interlacing fibers are able to stop even some of the sharpest blades from cutting Nagato. The bottom layer spreads shock from physical blows out across Nagato's body so one spot doesn't talk the entire force from. The blow, and instead it is spread out over a larger area so less central damage is done. This also means that while a strong enough physical hit might push past his normal durability and do a lot of damage, instead he remains near-unscathed thanks to the spread out kinetic energy. It should be noted that because this is multiple layers of spiritual energy, spiritual energy attacks don't do as much damage as they might normally do, though this is just because of Nagato's high level Hierro skill. This Hierro is also durable when I comes to heat due to having to be able to protect Nagato from his extreme high speeds, especially since he can break the sound barrier. This is the strongest form of Hierro in existence, and as such makes Nagato nigh-invulnerable to nearly all attempts to injure him.
Cero Disk is just as it says: a Cero in the shape of a disk. By generating a cero, compressing it, and then adding in more energy, and then throwing it at an opponent or target. It is the color of Nagato's Spiritual Energy, and is about 4 feet in diameter. The Cero Disk has razor-sharp edges, and as such can slive through most objects when thrown, even able to cut attacks of higher power in half. It is quite strong as well, about 4 times as strong as an average cero. The main downside to the Cero Disk is the fact that when its thrown, it cannot be turned or homed after it is thrown, thus making it easier to miss than an attack that can home in on targets.
Ungodly Spiritual Power:
Nagato has always had a ridiculously high amount of spiritual power. He has been stated to have an ungodly Reitsu, that alone is usually enough to incapacitate enemies. Because of this, he can quite easily be classified as on par with some of the strongest fighters in all the realms when it comes to Spiritual Power alone. Even when he first became a Hollow, his power was enough to rival even seated Gotei 13 members, as his level of strength was on par of a 7th seat before becoming a Gillian, which is almost impossible for normal Hollows. Even as a Gillian, his power was extraordinary, being unrivaled during his time. Due to the fact that he was one of the first Vasto Lorde-level Hollows Hueco Mundo has seen, and has been an Arrancar longer than most others have existed, his Reitsu not only started out massive, but has had a long, long time to grow and become much larger in general. Currently, his Reitsu is high enough to control 6 extra bodies in his Ressureccion form with minimal difficulty, and even seem to give each body a huge amount of Spiritual Pressure. It's been said that when Nagato displays his reitsu, it feels like the moon itself is being dropped on everyone near him and this actually makes a noticeable physical change in the environment around him as entire buildings and titanic warriors can be brought down from his pressure alone.
Expert Sword User:
Due to his Zanpakutos unique form, Nagato has trained to learn how to wield them effectively. He has reached heights of sword wielding that dwarfs the skills used by even Captains. In the past, he was able to fight multiple captains at once without releasing, and was even stated to be holding back. His skill in sword techniques and styles is quite high, as well as an odd way of fighting. He can use all 5 blades at once, one in each hand, one in his left elbow, one in his knee, and one his his mouth, which is a very difficult sword style to master, though he has done this several times over. His main fighting style is rapid movements while also cutting up his enemy, such as using Sonido multiple times around his opponent, and each time slashing a blade at them. Due to his main fighting style, he strongly dislikes using Kendo when fighting. However, on rare occasions, he has been known to use his own special form of Kendo, though it is an odd form due to his short blades.
Though not his specialty, he has been known to be able to fight without any weapons quite effectively. While not exactly great at hand-to-hand fighting, he has still been able to hold his won on multiple occasions. However, Nagato is an extremely ruthless and dangerous H2H fighter. His speedy punches coupled with his strength and reaction time is enough to take down most enemies, though against someone who purely focuses on Hakuda, he would have trouble, though not immensely over powered. When using Hakuda, he tends to fight like a boxer, always trying to pull off combos and uppercuts right when he is supposed to. He also balances his kicks and punches, meaning you might be getting punched one second, and sent flying away from a hard kick to your shoulder, the next minute. Combining his basic attributes and special abilities makes Nagato extremely difficult to best in close quarters combat.
Calmness in Battle:
While fighting, Nagato is eerily calm, even if there is chaos on the battlefield. As he is always after some sort of objective, one way or ther other, he refrains from doing anything that does not pertain to the task at hand. This means the only thing he focuses on is the objective, which if it happens to be "Eliminate the Target", the ONLY thing he will focus on is ending your life. You better be prepared, or else his objective may just end up being completed. Also, if his mission is "Capture the Target", it is likely he will just ignore all those around him, except for the target needing capturing.
Grandmaster Pure Speed:
Nagatos best, and most highly trained, general battle trait is his pure, insane speed. This is what he is known for in his base body, though in his Ressureccion, this does not pertain to every Path he controls, as each one has its own way of fighting (or lack there of). His speed is so ridiculous, he has been mistaken to be using Sonido, when in fact he was just moving regularly. He actually has to put a cap on his speed when walking around, or else he may accidentally move too fast for the situation at hand. Nagato can make many afterimages by moving as well, each afterimage appearing to be its own self. They dont "flicker" like normal afterimages either, and literally appear to be separate bodies and people. While his strength may not be as high or monstrous as his speed, by moving fast enough, he can generate enough force in his attacks to easily make up for this. To expand on this point, Nagato can apply so much speed to his individual strikes the results of these blows appear to rival that of extremely powerful strength specialists, which allows him to even outdamage a good amount of these types of opponents in raw physical combat. Combined with his monstrous Hierro, Nagato is perhaps one of the most difficult to catch and take down Arrancar in the history of Hueco Mundo.
Being as strong as high-ranking Espada, Nagato also possesses a high amount of durability. Nagato's durability is a major force behind his fighting style. He can repeatedly take heavy hits from opponents even without his Hierro, meaning his basic durability is very high. If an opponent ever somehow gets past his Hierro, he can still tank strong attacks from opponents, able to shrug off even high-level Kidō from Kidō users, or demons spells from demons, etc, etc. Trying to cut him is pretty pointless, so inflicting as much damage as possible through blunt force trauma is one of only a few ways to get past such a high durability level. However, to get to his natural durability to deal damage you'd have to get by his Hierro, the strongest in existence.
Nagato IS a high level Arrancar, so of course he is going to have quite a bit of physical strength behind his punches and kicks. He is quite strong, though by no means does he excel in strength. His punches and kicks, and other Hakuda techniques and attacks can do quite a bit of damage, able to shatter bones and easily destroy very dense objects. Thus, his speed augments his strength. By hitting extremely quickly, or charging the enemy and landing a full-speed hit, he can cause quite a bit of damage, though this is not be confused with actual physical strength, as again, he is putting speed behind such attacks and hits. However, even without speed, Nagato can still cause extreme damage to opponents; a good example is what he can do with a nail. Just by flicking a nail, he can cause it to go at super sonic speeds fairly easily and without using any energy. (See above Picture)
Intelligence and Battle Strategy:
Due to not only his age, but his natural intelligence as well, Nagato is quite intelligent. He has read basically every book in the Los Noches library, gaining a large sum of knowledge from the books and encyclopedias. He has also read many war strategy books, such as Sun-Tzu's "The Art of War", gaining not only invaluable knowledge in combat, but also learning how to "use the pawns" (soldiers, expendable fighters, etc) when in war or combat period. Being as old as he is, he also has a large amount of experience in general, so he tends to be able to change his fighting style, or adapt new strategies mid-battle. He also possesses knowledge on most Shinigami, Demons, Visoreds, Iramasha, etc, as he has done extensive research on every single species to date. Because of this, he is rarely surprised by abilities represented to him. This doesnt mean he automatically knows about someones abilities, it just means he is not surprised by ones he has never seen.
Also, because of his knowledge and intelligence, he is able to understand other peoples abilities quite quickly, and is able to think up ways to counter said ability. If an opponent uses an ability even just a few times, he can usually determine the type, range, and uses of the ability, and then countering it with one of his own abilities.
(Shinra Tensei being used by Nagato to stop arrows)
Shinra Tensei (lit. Heavenly Subjugation of the Omnipresent God; ALmighty Push)
Shinra Tensei is the ability to manipulate gravity at the user's will to repulse matter away, however that isn't entirely accurate. It isn't as simple as "gravity" because other gravity users cannot negate or stop it, and people/abilities immune to gravity are not immune to Shinra Tensei. It's more accurate to say it's the manipulation of space or reality. Depending on the amount of force the user puts in this technique, it can easily shatter wood, bones, metal, or stone walls. By using this technique as a defensive measure, almost all attacks directed to the user will be deflected, no matter the size, power or mass (its to be noted that the larger the attack, the more resistance they can put up, but in the end it doesnt matter). It can also be used to repel flames caught on the user's body. The only downside to this technique is that there is a short period when it is unusable after being used. The minimal time period is about five seconds, but it varies depending on the amount of power put into the attack. Even if Nagato's energy is removed, or energy-use is removed from combat, Nagato still has access to this ability since it doesnt technically use any energy nor is it technically gravity-based, so cancelling gravity powers doesnt work either. While Shinra Tensei does not require spiritual energy to use, it is physically draining instead, taking an appropriate amount of physical energy to use. Also, sufficiently strong and fast individuals may "force" their way out, resisting Shinra Tensei and perhaps even escaping it's grasp. However, this just means it's possible to slow themselves down slightly while being pushed, or they can try jumping away from it, as it is essentially impossible to straight up stop, and instead requires careful planning to counter. It should be noted that while possible for targets to resist, the chances of anyone short of the strongest entities being capable of this is extraordinarily unlikely. While in Ressureccion, the Deva Path uses this ability.
(The Deva Path using Bansho Ten'in while the Asura Path stands next to him)
Banshō Ten'in (lit. Heavenly Attraction of All of Creation; Universal Pull)
Banshō Ten'in is a technique similar to Shinra Tensei in that it "manipulates gravity" at the users will. However instead of pushing objects away, it draws them towards the user. It has the same five second limit as the Shinra Tensei. It is possible to attract multiple targets at once, causing them to collide with each other. Also, like Shinra Tensei, it is possible to dig ones self into the ground by either focuses their Reitsu into the ground, or adding weight/mass to their body. Even if Nagato's energy is removed, or energy-use is removed from combat, Nagato still has access to this ability since it doesnt technically use any energy nor is it technically gravity-based, so cancelling gravity powers doesnt work either. While in Ressureccion, the Deva Path uses this ability. While Shinra Tensei does not require spiritual energy to use, it is physically draining instead, taking an appropriate amount of physical energy to use. Also, sufficiently strong and fast individuals may "force" their way out, resisting Shinra Tensei and perhaps even escaping it's grasp. Similar to Shinra Tensei, this just means horrendously powerful individuals can slow down its effects however the likeliness of successfully accomplishing this is low.

Weapon of the 6 Paths
Nagatos Zanpakutō is odd, in that he has 5 of them. His Zanpakutō consists of 5 pitch-black blades that he has hidden all over his body. Each blade is roughly 28 inches in length, and relatively thin. They dont have hilts, and instead, their handles are just blunt areas on the blades. The blades themselves are very sharp, able to cut through most objects, and are also quite durable, as they are each part of a Zanpakutō. Their main trait is their light weight. Due to their very low weight, they can be swung with very high speed, and can all be used at once quite easily, because of the lack of extra mass on Nagatos body that would otherwise wear him down.
------------------------------------------------- The Paths of Pain -------------------------------------------------
Resereccion Name: Seis Rutas (6 Paths)
Resereccion Release Phrase: "Go down the Paths, Seis Rutas"
In order for Nagato to release his Zanpakutō and use his Ressureccion form, he must perform one simple action. By taking one of his blades and letting go of it, it will float in the air or be stabbed into the ground in front of him. Then, he places one of his hands at the tip of the blade, and a "seal" appears. He is then engulfed in a massive pillar of red energy, hiding what happens inside. After the energy begins to fade, Nagato disappears, and is replaced by 6 new bodies, all controlled by Nagato.
In Nagatos Ressureccion, he is replaced by 6 new bodies, though he controls each one through their thoughts. Each body is different, ranging from a young girl, to relatively large man. Each body wears the same atandard outfit that Nagato usually wears. They are all black, except for red clouds all over the robes, and have high collars that reach to about their chins. Their is a zipper that extends all the way from the top to the bottom of the robes on the front of them, and are red. Each body also has odd black bars that act as piercings and vary from body to body.
Field of Vision:
When the paths are active together in battle, Nagato is able to see through their eyes, thus registering six separate fields of vision at the same time. Essentially working as shared vision for the paths, this allows Nagato to coordinate their attacks and to provide defence for them without a blind spot. This means, it is close to impossible to land a surprise attack on one of the bodies, especially in large open areas. Though, if the bodies are separated by walls or anything like walls, this ability is pointless, as they cannot watch each others backs. This doesn't apply to normal walls as the Rinnegan can see through physical objects. However, due to the fact that he can see through every body at once, he is also very well suited for fighting multiple opponents at once. This connection essentially means it's impossible to get the jump on him in this form, and makes him the ultimate fighting 'team'.
Deva Path (God Realm)
The Deva Path is the most "normal" looking Path of thee 6 in Nagatos Ressureccion. The body bears six piercings, a metal bar through each ear, three studs through the side of its upper nose, and one spike stud on each end of the bottom lip. It also has three piercings on each wrist, at least one on its upper wrist and some just under his neck. He possesses the same eyes as Nagato, and has vibrant orange, spiky hair that is of medium length. His hair is held up by a black headband that extends around his entire head. On the front of the headband, there is a metal plate with 4 tally-like markings on it, and is scratched out.
Powers and Abilities:
The Deva Path possesses a level of speed well over that of Nagato in his sealed state, and as such is an extremely dangerous combatant, despite the fact that this form isn't the primary combat Path. This Path is next to impossible to hit, and nearly as difficult to even see when it's moving, to the point where he can attack from multiple directions despite not even appearing to move in the first place. When combined with its other very high stats and characteristics, this Path is likely the most dangerous of them all, and the fact that it is the only one that shares powers with the base sealed form of Nagato hints at this. The Deva Path can cross massive distances essentially instantly and without warning, as without using Banido, its movements are completely silent due to moving so quickly.
The Deva Path also possesses an immeasurable amount of physical strength, allowing it to fight extremely powerful physical fighters without even breaking a sweat. With a mere flick, the Deva Path is easily capable of sending a large and heavy object, or even a person, crashing through many buildings. While the Asura Path surpasses it in raw physical power, the Deva Path is much more refined, and thus more dangerous as it would be much more likely to put its strength to better use. This is displayed often, as this Path is capable of launching another Path across an entire city with sheer power alone. Also, using its physical power in its legs, the Deva Path can launch itself extremely high into the air, allowing him to jump so far up he can even see the roofs of skyscraper buildings.
Durability and Endurance:
The Deva Path possesses the same special custom form of Hierro as the sealed state Nagato does, except on an even higher level. During his release into his Ressureccion form, much of the energy that explodes out from his body is used to reinforce the Hierro of his Paths, meaning even the least durable Path has a Hierro higher than normal Nagato. The Deva Path's Hierro is especially powerful because it is the second strongest Hierro of all the Paths, behind only the Asura Path in sheer defensibility. This means even powerful attacks used by enemies on an equal level of power as Nagato can be swatted away like flies, and unless an enemy uses the most powerful attacks they possess, they are unlikely to even scratch the Deva Path. As far as endurance goes, the Deva Path possesses the best endurance of all six paths, allowing it to fight on even after the others collapse due to varying reasons. This means this Path is almost always the last one fighting if the other Paths are some how miraculously destroyed or crippled.
Shinra Tensei (lit. Heavenly Subjugation of the Omnipresent God; ALmighty Push)
The Deva Path is Nagatos main path, and thus can use Shinra Tensei. Shinra Tensei is the ability to manipulate gravity at the user's will to repulse matter away, however that isn't entirely accurate. It isn't as simple as "gravity" because other gravity users cannot negate or stop it, and people/abilities immune to gravity are not immune to Shinra Tensei. It's more accurate to say it's the manipulation of space or reality. Depending on the amount of force the user puts in this technique, it can easily shatter wood, bones, metal, or stone walls. By using this technique as a defensive measure, almost all attacks directed to the user will be deflected, no matter the size, power or mass (its to be noted that the larger the attack, the more energy Nagato needs to use this ability). It can also be used to repel flames caught on the user's body. The only downside to this technique is that there is a short period when it is unusable after being used. The minimal time period is about five seconds, but it varies depending on the amount of power put into the attack. The primary difference between the Deva Path's Shinra Tensei and the one Nagato uses normally is just how much more powerful this version is than it's counterpart. The difference is pretty noticeable, and if someone was somehow able to dampen the effects of the base version then the only way to keep that up against the Deva Path would be to use a stronger form or release. Otherwise, they just wouldn't be able to do what they'd done previously.
Banshō Ten'in (lit. Heavenly Attraction of All of Creation; Universal Pull)
As Nagatos main Ressureccion Path, the Deva Path is able to use Bansho Ten'in. Banshō Ten'in is a technique similar to Shinra Tensei in that it "manipulates gravity" at the users will. However instead of pushing objects away, it draws them towards the user (same with Shinra Tensei, the size of the object(s) being pulled determines the amount of energy needed to use this technique). It has the same five second limit as the Shinra Tensei. It is possible to attract multiple targets at once, causing them to collide with each other. Also, like Shinra Tensei, it is possible to dig ones self into the ground by either focuses their Reitsu into the ground, or adding weight/mass. Being an even stronger version than the normal Nagato's Shinra Tensei, this ability is incredibly powerful.
This body has the strangest facial features and perhaps body type as well, of all of Nagatos 6 Paths. The body is of a tall, bald man, with an unusual, large body shape, possessing a very thick neck, no ears and a large jaw. He also has the same eyes as Nagato, as do all 6 Paths in his Ressureccion. It is the only body not to have orange hair, though to be fair, he doesnt have any hair at all. It has a vertical ring piercing on its nose, six spike studs all around its head, three studs on the top and bottom of each of its six arms, an enormous cylindrical stud on its chin, and two vertical studs on each of its upper cheeks. The body has three faces, each with a different expression, and two of which appeared from the sides of its head only when it removes its cloak in a fight: happy (its normal face), angry, and neutral. It also has a long, saw-like "tail" which stretched from his back over his head.
Powers and Abilities:
The Asura Path is by far the strongest of all Paths, physically that is. Due to his mechanized body structure, he can generate a lot of force compared to that of the other Paths. He possesses physical strength far above average, and is strong enough to even rip limbs off of its enemies. A basic strategy of the Paths, is for Asura to pick up, and throw another Path far away, sending them flying for even miles. This Path tends to be used as the primary fighting Path, due to not onlhy its strength, but its special ability. The pure physical power this Path possess is enough to easily keep power specialists on their toes, and is thus able to inflict extreme damage on its targets in close quarters combat.
The Asura Path possesses the most durability of all Paths, due to its incredible strength and special power. Its Hierro is much stronger than that of the other Paths, and is able to take much more damage than the other Paths as well. Due to its very dense metal body, it also has another line of defense, since it is basically a cyborg. Even though his body is made of metal, he does not suffer from a weakness of fire. Also, since he can get a maximum of 6 arms at once, he can produce that much more force, and can even use those arms as protection. The Asura Path possesses durability and a level of Hierro never seen before, and discounting Nagato's Segunda Etapa, possesses one of the most durable bodies of all time.
This body is very different from all other paths, being more like an android, being human on the outside, but in reality it was basically a robot. It is shown to have robotic inner workings, possessing six arms, each being connected to his body by a separate shoulder, three faces (each with its own "emotion"), and had a folded, serrated blade-like sash around its waist. It can also protrude a similar set of flexible blades from one of its arms. It has a metal saw-like tail that is quite long and very durable. It can fire one of its left forearms off as a long-range projectile, and could pull out his arms to reveal and fire a cluster of segmented missiles at its targets. It can quickly propel itself forward with a burst of Spiritual Power from its boots, and could protract multiple blades and drills from its right arm in combat. Also, it can open up the crown of its head to release a powerful Reitsu blast that as capable of destroying numerous buildings at once. This blast is capable of reducing an entire town to dust, and is many times stronger than even a Gran Rey Cero, proving it's powerful capabilities..
The Human Path is a quite tall, and relatively slender man. He has long, loose, vibrant orange hair, that extends past the base of his neck, and his bangs are held in by his headband, which appears exactly like the others'. It had multiple piercings, including a diagonal bar through its nose, two circular studs in a vertical row on each of its cheeks, two studs placed horizontally on its chin, and a stud on each of its shoulders near its neck. The diagonal nose piercing makes it the only Pain Path with asymmetrical facial piercings.
Powers and Abilities:
The Human Path is a very capable fighter, despite his support-type special abilities. One main factor that supports this is his raw speed when moving and fighting. When he is moving, he possesses perhaps the second highest speed of any of the 6 Paths of Pain Ressureccion. He is able to move very fast, high above that of average on Nagatos level. This means he is also quite gifted in Sonido, being able to travel faster than most, and even leave afterimages behind in his wake. When fighting, he also possesses high speed in his strikes and blows, being able to add damage from the speed, increasing the amount of force he can generate considerably. Due to this, he tends to fight with quick blows in rapid succession, instead of trying to land heavy blows. When the Deva path is out openly fighting, this path should be watched out for its tremendous speed.
Oddly enough, the Human path also possesses higher than average physical strength. he is strong enough to easily toss loarge metal beams away, and even lift the trmendously heavy Asura Path. He can demolish boulders from punching, and can send enemies flying straight through buildings. Though above average, he does not excel in physical strength overall, something his "opposite Path", the Asura path does. By adding speed to his blows, he can exponentially increase the amount of force created from his attacks, making himself all the more deadly in Close Quarters COmbat. He is easily strong enough to overpower the vast majority of people he many encounter, and thus shouldn't be taken lightly.
This is the singular special ability of the ever-dangerous Human Path, and like the abilities the other Paths possess, this ability is exceedingly powerful. This ability involves disrupting as well as essentially scanning the "spirit" or "soul" of the intended target. The only way to activate this ability is for the Human Path to place its hand on the intended target, which then allows him to do a few things. First off, it allows Nagato to gain information about the target's powers and abilities including both weaknesses and strengths, as well as allowing him to learn precisely how the abilities function. The longer he is able to hold his hand on the victim, the more information regarding more abilities he is able to obtain. After a while, Nagato will learn as much about the abilities as the user himself, or even more so. This alludes to the fact that Nagato is considered to be an all-knowing sage. However, this is most definitely not the only use this ability happens to have.
The second effect this ability possesses is the ability to disrupt the intended target's "soul". This has a few negative effects for the victim, all as dangerous as the last. First off, whatever spiritual weapon or being they possess, including but not limited to Ziamichi spirits and Zanpakutō, have their connection to the host disrupted and/or damaged. The primary downside for the victim is the fact that they can't use said spirit or weapon's powers properly, and will become unstable by trying to do so. This could mean a fire user will no longer have control of their flames, which would likely go out of control pretty quickly. However, it also causes more severe issues when the target is using a special release form, as a shinigami in Bankai sufficiently weaker could automatically be forced into their Shikai state, or for stronger people, lose the ability to wield the Bankai properly. As far as Zanpakutō go, they are also likely to start feeling pretty heavy for the wielder. Arrancar would feel the same effects while in Ressureccion or higher. The only solution to this is for the victim to wait it out, as eventually they will synchronize again, though it takes longer if they are weaker. The primary danger this part of the ability possesses is the capability of turning enemies against each other as a person's powers, especially if they're large area-of-effect powers, could very well become so chaotic and uncontrolled that nearby allies could suffer injuries from them.
Finally, there is one last characteristic of this ability. When the Human Path successfully places his hand on the intended target's head, the victim instantly has any buffs they game themselves or someone else gave them removed. If an ally boosted the target's defense, this ability strips away said defense boost instantly. This makes this ability particularly dangerous for people who fight by buffing themselves or enhancing their abilities. Note that this doesn't apply to bonuses a person receives from activating a release or switching to a higher form. The primary downside to this ability is the fact that none of these effects are possible if the Human Path doesn't make physical contact with the target's head using his hand. Also, the first ability requires the hand to stay on the person's head for an extended amount of time for Nagato to gain a large amount of information.
The body of the Animal Path is of a young girl, making it Pain's only female body. Like all other Paths of Pain, the Animal Path possesses the same eyes as all other Paths of Pain. She is the shortest Path of all 6, being only about 5'5". This Path has orange hair tied together in a sort of onion-like bun at the top of the head, with spikes of hair protruding out of it. It has one stud above the nose, studs on either side of the neck, a row of studs vertically down each cheek, a stud below each stud on the neck, two studs on each forearm. She also wears the same basic robes and outfit as the other Paths, as well as Nagato, wear, albeit shorter. Also, she wears the same headband they do as well, with the same exact metal plate on the front.
Powers and Abilities:
Close Quarters Combatant:
Though not a fighter due to her specific role, and her size, she does possess some ability in Taijutsu, such as being able utilize multiple fighting styles at once. Though she is actually slightly less than average in both speed and strength, her skillful attacks and fighting techniques let her fight just as well as her physically stronger counterparts such as the Asura Path and the Human path, though she is more on par with the Preta path in physical fighting. When she fights, she strikes every point on the opponents body, using her nimbleness and size to her advantage by attacking in circles around the opponents body, usually aiming for pressure points and such. However, this Path possesses the lowest durability of them all, and instead resorts to using summons for protection.
The Animal Paths special ability is being able to summon various monsters for use in both combat and support with the other Paths. By putting her fists together, she can bring in monsters that range from a giant rhino, to a chameleon with a snake tail. All of the summons possess the same eyes as the Paths as well as Nagato. The summoned beasts also possess incredible strength, durability, and combat capabilities to the point of easily being able to go toe-to-toe with captain level fighters on even an individual basis. This gives Nagato even more combat strength against large groups of enemies while in his Ressureccion. The main downside is once a summon is defeated in battle, it cannot be summoned for the duration of the thread. It also takes a considerable amount of energy to summon these powerful beasts.
Giant Drill-Beaked Bird
Description: A large bird, this summon has a number of body piercings and Nagatos eyes, implying it is being controlled by Nagato. The bird itself is unusual, as not only does it demonstrate a prominent and jagged beak, but it also features three distinct legs. This summon can move at an incredibly fast speed, and can use that velocity combined with it's beak to form powerful dive attacks. It can also create eggs, that when dropped on opponents or areas, explode into a rather large blast. An attack from this bird using its beak as a drill is extremely dangerous, and can shatter and pierce even some of the strongest defenses.
Giant Snake-Tailed Chameleon:
Description: This summon is a large chimera-like chameleon with snake for a tail. Like all of Nagato's summons, it has a number of body piercings and Nagatos eyes, implying that it is being controlled. Much like a real-life chameleon, this creature can also blend with its surroundings for camouflage, so perfectly that it renders itself completely invisible to other viewers around. This ability has been used by the Animal Path of Pain to step inside the chameleon's mouth and attack his opponents by surprise. Also, it as well as anything inside it don't give off reitsu or heat, rendering it essentially completely undetectable. Another reptilian trait that the chameleon shows is the ability to crawl on vertical and inclined surfaces, such as walls. Also, it has exhibited great destruction capabilities, being able to topple houses, though this is likely because of its size. The snake-tail can be used as a prehensile limb, to be able to grab and capture intended targets for Nagato with its long, sticky tongue.
Description: A large crustacean, this summon has a number of body piercings, implying it is being controlled by Pain. This summon can shoot powerful bubbles at high velocities by forming the bubbles in its body, and then releasing them from its mouth. These blasts of bubbles are surprisingly effective, being able to tear through structures and defenses like a hot knife through butter. Also, because of its shell, it can be used as a "wall" or "shield" to protect the Animal Path from harm, tough it is by no means indestructible.
Description: A large rhinoceros, this summon has a number of body piercings and Nagatos eyes, implying it is being controlled by Nagato. This summon is utterly massive, being very bulky and weighing over 15 tons. It has a tough, think hide which protects it from attacks, and also has a huge, sharp horn at the end of its snout. Despite its size, it can actually move quite fast as well, making it the physically strongest summon the Animal path can bring onto the battlefield. The Rhino is extremely powerful, and is more difficult to stop using physical strength or barriers than his other summons. It is also rather durable, possessing a harder-than-steel hide that acts like a suit of armor.
The Path has a large, bulky body, and even appears relatively overweight. The Preta Path, like all of the Six Paths, possesses Nagato's eyes. It has orange hair tied in a short ponytail. It has small spiked piercings covering its entire bottom lip, two vertical spike studs on the front of his nose, two spike studs (one on each cheek), a metal spike going through each ear, and a stud on his shoulder, one on each side, close to his neck. Like every Path, the Preta Path wears the same outfit and headband. However, this Paths outfit is slightly larger than the others, though this is probably to accommodate his extra weight.
Powers and Abilities:
Due to the fact that this body is relatively large, it does possess a good amount of physical strength that it can utilize in and out of battle. Its physical strength is comparably high to the Animal Path, though it probably doesnt exceed that of the Human paths physical strength. While he is strong enough to shatter boulders from a punch (which is relatively average compared to most), he cannot put much speed behind his blows, and thus cannot deliver strikes as strong as his full physical potential warrants. This makes him a relatively poor Hakuda fighter, though his powers are more defensive anyway.
The Preta Path is easily the slowest [physically] of all of Nagatos' Ressureccion Paths. This is due to not only his larger weight and mass, but also because he is a defense-based Path of Pain. This means he cannot dodge very well (though with his abilities he doesnt really need to, to be honest). He also cant fight very well because of his weight and his speed, or lack thereof. He tends to be in the back, with the Naraka Path and the Deva Path, protecting both from danger and enemies that with to inflict harm upon them. However, being the slowest out of some of the fastest beings alive certainly does not mean this Path is, by any means, slow.
The Hungry Ghost Path, also called the Preta Path, has one ability and one ability only: the power to absorb and negate energy. However, this needs to be explained in full as its function and mechanics aren't so cut and dry. First off, its appearance: when this ability is in effect, the Preta Path would be holding his hands in the direction of the attack coming towards him, and a translucent blue sphere would surround his body as he uses this technique. Next is its mechanics. When spiritual energy or really any form of energy not coming from Nagato (aka any Paths) makes contact with this shield, it is immediately sucked into the sphere surrounding Preta, and both nullified and partially absorbed. The Preta Path can only absorb about fifteen percent of the energy absorbed in order to prevent energy corruption, which is essentially special effects of an opponent's energy attack affecting the Preta Path, as well as to prevent being overloaded with power. Also, the energy absorbed would be closer to twenty percent, but some of the absorbed energy is used to power the absorption itself. Energy absorbed is immediately converted to a usable version, which means even energy like that used by Nature Iramasha is still useful to absorb. It should also be noted that size of the energy attack is what determines the length of time it takes to absorb, with larger energy attacks taking longer. The energy the Preta Path absorbs can be used to either make itself stronger, or can be shared with the other Paths. Due to this ability, the Preta Path should be targeted by physical attacks because it isn't as strong as the other combat Paths, and is still susceptible to physical assaults. However this ability alone makes going after other Paths with energy based attacks extremely dangerous as not only with your ability end up negated, but it would also provide time for a more physically capable Path to engage on you.
The Naraka Path appears to be a tall, stocky, and well-muscled man of about 6'7". The Naraka Path, like all 6 Paths, possesses the same, familiar eyes that Nagato has when sealed or in Segunda. The Naraka Path has a very wide chin. It had a spiky mop of orange hair. It has multiple body piercings, such as a circular stud on the bridge of its nose, a diagonal row of studs on each of its cheeks, three spike piercings in each of its ears, and a stud on each of its shoulders near its neck. Like all Paths, the Naraka Path wears the same basic clothing as the others do, with the red cloud robe and the slashed out headband.
Powers and Abilities:
Physical Strength: The Naraka Path is quite large, and thus possesses a considerable amount of physical strength. His large stature and developed muscles allow him to crush boulders, and send opponents flying through buildings. He is also quite heavy, meaning it is difficult to make him move by either pushing him or blasting him with attacks such as the Cero or a large amount of Kidō. Though he possesses remarkable physical strength, he is still somewhat slow, and as such isnt one of the better Paths when it comes to fighting, and due to his own Path abilities and such, tends to be protected by every other Path, including the usually out-of-combat Deva Path, which tends to hint at the Narakas Path importance as a support-type.
Speed: The Naraka Path is the second slowest Path of all 6; only being faster than that of the Preta path. This means that the Naraka Path, while very strong physically, possesses a low amount of combat capability in comparison to the other Paths. Due to his lack of speed, he also suffers from "Protect Me Syndrome", which means he is often protected by faster Paths such as the Human Path or Deva Path. Though, he CAN still defend himself, even with the lack of speed, and is still a very dangerous an. powerful fighter.
The most dangerous ability of perhaps all the Paths lies in the grasp of the Naraka Path. The Naraka Path possesses an extremely powerful ability that dabbles in the art of "rebirth" so to speak. This ability is actually the reconstitution and reconstruction of some of the Paths. By summoning the Hell king (not actual Satan), absorbing the body of the fallen Path, and then rebuilding it from the ground up. After its "revival", the Hell King spits out the now combat-capable Path. This ability essentially makes the other five Paths indestructible, as any Path destroyed can just be rebuilt to maximum power, wasting the efforts of Nagato's opponents. This also means Nagato can fight without worrying about the safety of the physically weaker Paths, and as such can deploy an even more aggressive combat style. Even a Path completely destroyed or even vaporized can be remade. However, each revival costs a significant amount of energy. Also, if the Naraka Path is destroyed, then no Paths can be remade, which usually results in enemies specifically targeting this Path, meaning Nagato has to spend time focusing on defending it. The main purpose of this ability is to allow weaker Paths like the Hungry Ghost Path to front line, since if they get damaged the Naraka Path can repair them while a stronger Path like Asura protects it. This type of battle strategy is what makes Nagato's Ressureccion so dangerous, as unless his enemies are very coordinated with each other or possess a high amount of knowledge of these abilities then they will very likely get wiped.[/color]
---------------------------------------------------------- SEGUNDA ETAPA ----------------------------------------------------------
Segunda Name: Sabio de Seis Rutas (Sage of 6 Paths)
Segunda Release Phrase: "Join the One Path, Sabio de Seis Rutas"
No matter what position they are in (defeated or otherwise), all of the Paths begin to glow a brilliant red, and appear to "become" energy itself. Then, all of the Paths shoot forward into one central spot, and begin to combine their bodies and energy. A massive pillar of bright red energy (almost resembling that of fire) forms, and the bodies combine inside the pillar. After the energy fades, Nagato's new form can be seen from the smoke.
*Aside from the Naraka Path, Nagato retains his Ressureccion abilities.
Incredible Speed: Nagatos speed is ludicrously high in this form, as it is practically all of his Paths' speed combined. He can move so quickly at this point, that he makes his previous forms look like they were moving in slow motion. He seems to instantaneously teleport, but in reality he is just moving at a relatively moderate speed level for himself. Without using Sonido, when he moves at max speed, it sounds as though he is lightning, as thunder occurs in his wake, creating loud booms across the battle field. This is why his normal speed and Sonido are mixed up in this form by opponents. Though, his Sonido is actually silent as not even sound can keep up with it, and as such seems like he is truly teleporting. Using numbers to measure his speed is pointless when Nagato is in this form, and it's more accurate to say he just disappears and reappears when moving.
Immense Physical Strength: Like all of his other traits, his raw physical strength is increased quite a bit in this form as well. Even without his strength, the momentum he can build up in a punch from his speed is insane alone. That, coupled with the fact that he does in fact have a high strength level, allows him to cause massive damage with basic attacks. His strength is far above even the Asura Path, which was the (physically) strongest Path in his 6 Paths of Pein Ressureccion. Nagato is strong enough in this form to create massive craters in the ground by simply dropping his foot to the ground. A punch from him can easily cause massive holes to appear in a person's body, even if he doesn't make contact. To say his physical strength is immeasurably high is an understatement.
Ludicrous Spiritual Power: At this point, it would be wrong to say his level of spiritual energy wasnt absolutely ridiculous. Even for someone of his level, he is still high among those of his power level. Even if he were to attempt to hide his power, it would still be too much for a lot of humans and spiritually unaware beings. At full mass, he can make weaker opens drop to the ground in a traditional Chinese bowing position, making it seem as though they are bowing to him and basically declaring him their king/emperor/god. Nagato has been known to vaporize low level Arrancar just by being near them, and any solid surface he touches or goes near is vaporized as well. His spiritual pressure causes space and time to distort around his body, eliminating the effects of time-based powers on him, as well as making it dangerous to even stand in his general vicinity.
Increased Durability: Nagatos basic defense and durability of both his Hierro and his regular body increase dramatically in this form. Nagato's Hierro while in his Segunda Etapa is essentially unbreakable, as it can be considered to be the ultimate defense in this form. Not only does impact force mean nothing to Nagato as even extremely powerful physical blows can be brushed aside, but sharp objects are essentially treated as blunt weapons against him. Even the sharpest of blades would be unable to cut through his Hierro. Also, while in this form Nagato gains a major boost in his natural durability due to his skin hardening and becoming like stone in comparison to normal human skin. As a matter of fact, the difference between his natural defense in this form compared to that of the Asura Path's is like stone compared to paper; the difference is that dramatic.
Shinra Tensei (lit. Heavenly Subjugation of the Omnipresent God; ALmighty Push)
Shinra Tensei is the ability to manipulate gravity at the user's will to repulse matter away, however that isn't entirely accurate. It isn't as simple as "gravity" because other gravity users cannot negate or stop it, and people/abilities immune to gravity are not immune to Shinra Tensei. It's more accurate to say it's the manipulation of space or reality. Depending on the amount of force the user puts in this technique, it can easily shatter wood, bones, metal, or stone walls. By using this technique as a defensive measure, almost all attacks directed to the user will be deflected, no matter the size, power or mass (its to be noted that the larger the attack, the more energy Nagato needs to use this ability). It can also be used to repel flames caught on the user's body. The only downside to this technique is that there is a short period when it is unusable after being used. The minimal time period is about five seconds, but it varies depending on the amount of power put into the attack. However, due to his increased power in general in his Segunda etapa, his Shinra Tensei also gains a large boost in power. At this point, Nagato's Shinra Tensei is god-like in power, staying true to its name. The almighty force with which this technique pushes can reduce the center of a city to rubble while still maintaining the lowest possible time delay. It has been said nothing can withstand its force.
Banshō Ten'in (lit. Heavenly Attraction of All of Creation; Universal Pull)
Banshō Ten'in is a technique similar to Shinra Tensei in that it "manipulates gravity" at the users will. However instead of pushing objects away, it draws them towards the user (same with Shinra Tensei, the size of the object(s) being pulled determines the amount of energy needed to use this technique). It has the same five second limit as the Shinra Tensei. It is possible to attract multiple targets at once, causing them to collide with each other. Also, like Shinra Tensei, it is possible to dig ones self into the ground by either focuses their Reitsu into the ground, or adding weight/mass to their body. It has trouble pulling objects that are shaped like squares or rectangles. In his Segunda form, Nagato's Bansho Ten'in ability becomes much stronger. By using it on a building, he can tear it to shreds, pulling piece by piece off until there is virtually nothing left. A single use of this technique can demolish a pathway straight through an entire city. That is the true power of the Bansho Ten'in.
Chibaku Tensei (lit. Heavenly Body Bursting from the Earth; Planetary Destruction)
The user creates a dark black sphere of 'gravity' that, when thrown into the sky, attracts objects from all directions and pulls them into the sphere, compressing them together. This sphere is extremely difficult to destroy, to the point where only a person's strongest ability has hope of destroying it for good. The surrounding earth, including entire forests and mountains, are collected into a single point, piling on top of one another until it creates a monstrously large sphere. A huge crater much larger than even the largest of cities is left where the earth has been collected from. This ability is extremely powerful, able to basically create entire moons, which it has been used to do multiple times before. The force at which the Chibaku Tensei pulls objects in towards it is many, many times that of Earths gravity, which is enough to rip hundreds of thousands of tons of land up and into it, compacting it until it is gigantic, and obviously because it works similarly to increased gravity, it doesn't instantly pick things up (it is implied he can actually create one the size of Earth's moon, though he would need a tremendous amount of energy to do such a thing). This ability is so tremendously powerful, it can be compared to that of a god's, for it can turn entire countries into barren craters. Chibaku Tensei doesn't continuously sap Nagato's energy, as it is a one-shot type ability. Due to it being his strongest Segunda ability, it takes more energy than any other Segunda ability of his.
Summoning: Shin Sūenju [EVENT ONLY]
While in his Segunda Etapa state, Nagato loses access to all of the previous summons he could use while in his Ressureccion. However, he instead gains access to a single summon to use instead: Shin Sūsenju, "True Several Thousand Hands". By slamming his hands together into a prayer-like formation, Nagato can activate the lock on this summon, meaning he can bring it into the real world. After this is done, a massive cloud of white smoke appears behind Nagato, and after it dissipates, this figure is seen sitting down. Shin Sūsenju's most noteworthy characteristic is its size, however that is an obvious understatement. Being many thousands of meters tall, as well as possessing an equal width, this hulking behemoth towers over essentially anything and everything. This colossal Buddha-statue resembling summon is so large, it can grip the entire thickness of Doctor Kabuto Hebi's summon Victor II, which is a snake of such massive proportions it takes up half the size of Karakura City. This means this statue is many times larger than one of the largest cities on Earth. It has been known to dwarf entire mountain ranges and that's without even standing up. When it stands up, it appears even taller. It is even visible from space. It resembles a Buddha statue slightly, and has, as its name suggests, several thousand hands that reach out from its back that reach upwards, as well as to the left and right, forming a half-circle behind the statue.
First off, this statue-esque monstrosity is extremely durable to the point of being nigh-indestructible. Even extremely powerful attacks do nothing to it, and for the most part even if said attacks could damage it, it's size and bulk means it is still a small amount in comparison to its size. However, this isn't just a statue that doesn't move; nay, instead it can move as though it were a sentient being. However, it instead has its every movement controlled telepathically by Nagato, who can make it stand up, walk around, or even attack. In order to attack, Shin Sūsenju utilizes the thousands of hands upon its back in order to strike down target by thrusting the hands/arms in the direction of the intended victim. By striking with all of the hands on its back simultaneously, Shin Sūsenju can destroy massive areas in a matter of seconds. Such a powerful summon has its drawbacks, however. First off, once destroyed this summon cannot be brought back in the span of a thread. Also, as the ability title says, this can only be used in threads categorized as Events due to its tremendous power. Finally, this summoning requires more energy to bring into the world than any other ability in Nagato's entire arsenal, including abilities he gains access to while using his Eternal Mangékyo Shinime-ga.
This ability replaces the Tensei/Ten'in abilities as Nagato's most commonly used power while in his Segunda Etapa. This is because while the other abilities are powerful, Sējirirīsu: Kokushibyō is even more so, and is also much more versatile than basic push/pull abilities. As a matter of fact, this ability is so versatile, it allows Nagato to fight entire battles without having to use anything, and can be used for all three major categories of combat abilities: Offensive, Defensive, and Supplementary. This means that while an opponent may only have powers or equipment that specialize in offense, such as a cannon-like weapon/ability, this ability can be used for essentially anything Nagato needs. Not only does this make this ability exceptionally dangerous, but it also makes it Nagato's most useful power as a whole. Thus it could be said that Sējirirīsu: Kokushibyō is even more powerful than Chibaku Tensei.
This ability is essentially the creation of an extremely useful material Nagato can use in combat. While he can create more or less, this material almost always forms seven distinct, floating orbs that levitate closely behind Nagato, as well as an eight at the back of his left hand. These orbs are pitch black in color, with a slight purplish hue to them. They automatically follow him wherever he goes, and he can also move them to other locations himself, or even make more spheres if he needs to do so. Because this material is so extremely malleable, to the point of Nagato being able to will them into any shape whatsoever, they can take a variety of shapes, though a specific few are used rather often compared to others. The primary shape is the basic sphere, however if he has them pierce through the back of his hands he can form blades, among other things. The lance shape involves him stretching it from his palm about four feet, and then he can use it to stab straight into enemies as well as pierce defenses. Nagato can also create barriers with this material, and cover himself in a protective shielding in order to protect himself from an enemy's offense. Their shape can also change dramatically; for instance, a regular sphere which is usually about seven inches in diameter can be expanded to a size larger than multiple city blocks, and rather easily at that.
On we move to its special characteristics. First off, this material is nigh-indestructible, and is more durable than even Nagato's Hierro and pure defensive capabilities combined while in his Segunda Etapa form. This makes the material easily equivalent in durability to that of Nagato's Zanpakutō. Also, the material can be moulded into shapes with edges sharp enough to cut through essentially anything it comes into contact with. This means a blade made of this material can do combat with an opponent's Zanpakutō without even slightly being damaged, while also allowing him to damage weaker weapons with it. This ability is far beyond elemental powers, and as such is capable of doing far more damage. The versatility doesn't end there, however, as there are a few more features of this tremendous power.
When this ability is used for offensive purposes, it possesses essentially penetration that pierces through 50% of a target's bonus defenses. This means even if an opponent uses an ability that enhances their defenses, this malleable black material it ignores half of said bonuses and is still able to hit them quite hard indeed. It also ignores passive abilities of anybody it strikes, rendering a Quincy's Blut and an Arrancar's Hierro useless against it, as it will tear through them like a hot knife through butter. Even passive abilities specifically used to counter an opponent's abilities are useless, as well as energy-negation powers as this is a 'material' not an 'energy', as well as it possessing the capability to ignore negation-type abilities. However, it's important to point out this does not apply to base defenses and durabilities. There is one final special characteristic of the black material used by this ability: its destructive force. This material does not explode, nay; instead, it 'destroys'. Anything this material comes into contact with, besides Nagato or anything Nagato himself creates using other abilities, is hit with the destructive force of both an extremely powerful energy attack, as well as a city-destroying level explosive. As a matter of fact, this material can literally destroy mass itself as well as energy, which means technically every time this ability is used, the universe gets that much smaller. This is why this material can destroy an opponent so well, as absolutely anything it touches feels these destructive effects. By simply expanding one of the spheres to the size of a house near a target, anything hit by it would be destroyed, leaving a large crater where it struck.
Utilizing all of these effects combined, Nagato moulds the material into the shape of pitch black shakujō. This staff is made of highly-concentrated Sējirirīsu: Kokushibyō material, making it even more durable than when the spheres are used. This staff usually floats in front of Nagato's body, and controlled telekinetically like the rest of the black material, but Nagato also occasionally wields it himself. This staff weapon is very useful in combat thanks to the unique traits the material that makes it up possesses, and is also a powerful weapon even without said traits due to its length, and thus reach, as well as its shape that allows it to 'catch' an enemy's weapon using the ring on its top end.
However, like all powers, Sējirirīsu: Kokushibyō has its downsides. First off, energy consumption: while not ridiculously consuming, this ability does take a good amount of energy to use. However, if the spheres don't do anything, then no energy is used up. Also, due to Nagato being the only person that wouldn't be damaged by it, it should not be used to help allies as they can be damaged just as badly as an opponent. Also, excluding the staff, the material cannot retain a changed shape for very long, and must revert back to the normal sphere form relatively soon after initially changing shape. This means he must constantly switch between the normal orbs and actual weapons or shields instead of being able to hold a weapon during the entire course of a fight. If Nagato were to somehow be separated from the orbs, he wouldn't be able to use them for defense as he cannot teleport them to himself. This means he must actively attempt to keep them near him in order to prevent separation, which is an important downside in and of itself.
This is, without a doubt, the ultimate form of Nagato's Sonido movement technique. Perhaps what proves the capabilities of this movement skill is the fact that it is only available to Nagato while in his Segunda Etapa form, the final and most powerful form known to the entire Arrancar species. While essentially all Sonido work as supplementary abilities as they primarily allow the users to move much more quickly than usually, this special form of the ability centers around more destructive capabilities. In his Segunda Etapa form, Nagato is able to move faster than ever, and as such hits his peak level of speed. This ability takes advantage of that fact. When Nagato uses Sonido in his Segunds form, he moves so quickly a special field around him forms that distorts everything within his personal space. This distortion field doesn't just distort, it destroys essentially anything and everything it touches. Now, the Sonido itself functions by utilizing this destructive field while he moves around with Sonido, which allows him to barrel straight through objects, leaving a large hole in his wake. This means he can essentially Sonido through physical and energy-based objects without having to become intangible, and without taking damage. Even some of the strongest of barriers cannot hold him back, and would end up with large holes in them. The amount of force this technique has behind it is in the kilotons of TNT explosives, meaning it is as or more powerful than extremely powerful nuclear fission bombs. It should be noted that if Nagato had a normal form of Sonido in his Segunda, he wouldn't be moving as fast. This means the Shibōshasū Sonido is comparatively faster than other Sonido abilities used by equal level Arrancar.
Like Nagato's Shibōshasū Sonido, this is the ultimate form of one of his racial techniques, more specifically his Steel Skin. Also like his special Sonido ability, Nagato's Hierro only takes this form while he is in his Segunda Etapa. Called the Muteki Hierro, or Invincible Steel Skin, this truly is the absolute peak of Hierro any Arrancar has ever achieved since the advent of the species. The basic structure of this protective armor involves the fusion of the four-layered Hierro of each Path from his Ressureccion, and then a combination of all six Hierros. This essentially results in armor six times as effective as the original version, except it doesn't end there. The hierro itself will settle into his skin in Segunda, meaning instead of his Hierro and specially-hardened skin he gets in this form working as separate layers of defense, they instead combine their overall durability. However, this isn't even counting the additional energy Nagato releases in his Segunda. Basically, when he releases into his Segunda, an absolute massive burst of energy is shot out of his body after the Paths combine, however the energy shortly condenses after spreading, and then combines with his Hierro, boosting it even further. All of these processes combined result in an armor of reitsu so dense and durable that it even has the capability of negating damage against Nagato in any form, while completely negating space/time-based abilities as the pressure and density of the Hierro is simply too high to be altered by these types of abilities. It also means nearly everyone is susceptible to injuring themselves by trying to attack him physically, resulting in severe damage to whatever made contact with Nagato.
The Tendōdama Cero has a simple function, which is the destruction of whatever it hits (like all Cero), but its energy makeup as well as specific creation parameters are a bit unusual compared to other energy attacks. To create this Cero, Nagato must combine negative white energy and positive black energy, forming a perfect fifty/fifty combination. After doing so, the energy is then spun around and formed into a sphere roughly a foot in diameter so that the two types of energy may thoroughly be mixed, as well as to condense said energy as much as possible. This perfect energy combination results in a relatively small black and white sphere that surpasses absolutely all forms of Cero Nagato has access to, and due to the tremendous amount of energy required to form it, it is limited to Nagato's Segunda Etapa release state. After the sphere of energy is formed, Nagato can either keep it in that form until making it impact with an enemy, in which case it would explode into a huge inferno of energy capable of taking out even the strongest of opponents, or he can immediately turn it into a gigantic blast of energy and aim it at a target. The destructive capabilities of this Cero are tremendous, even greater than that of a Cero Oscuras used by Nagato while in his Segunda Etapa form. Due to the specific makeup of this energy attack, it cannot be absorbed by any means whatsoever. Also, the reason why it is confined to his Segunda Etapa is due to the sheer amount of energy it requires to form.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: The Eternal Mangekyo Form // Eye Evolution ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Description: The Eternal Mangekyo Form is actually a result of his age and training. Without his special Rinnegan eyes, he would never be able to obtain this form, but as he does possess such eyes, this form is now available for use by Nagato. This is sort of like an add-on to his Segunda form, as after he goes into his Segunda form, this new form/evolution is available for use. However, it should be noted he only has to be in Segunda Etapa to get maximum power output from EMS, while he can use it to a far weaker level while in his base state. This cannot be used while he is in Ressureccion due to his energy being split between six beings instead of it all being concentrated in a single body. His appearance dramatically changes while in this form, making him appear more or less like a samurai, granted he did slightly appear like this in his normal Segunda form anyway. His body armor changes from its grey-green color to a magnificent crimson, as well as the clothing/robes he wears changes to a deep blue color. He loses the horns on top of his head, and his hair grows much longer thhan is was before. His hair color also changes from silverish-white to jet black. He also gains a black-bladed tachi that rests on his hip.
Awakened Shinime-ga: This is the base state for his new eyes. His new eyes are red and black, and have a signature tomoe design on them while also possessing the rings of his Rinnegan. They allow Nagato to not only sense the flow of spiritual energy throughout a persons body, but also contains the same characteristics of his Rinnegan and then some. It allows Nagato to keep perfect track of those hes fighting, meaning he can see people even when they use special speed movement abilities such as Flash-Step and Sonido. He can keep track of multiple opponents at once like this, giving him an upper hand against speed-based opponents. The Shinime-ga also allows Nagato to perfectly copy the movements of his opponent(s) extremely quickly, with pretty much no delay whatsoever. This essentially means if he is able to see an opponent doing something with their hands, he has the capability to do complete the exact same movements at the exact same time. This would be akin to a person looking in a mirror: the person and their reflection do the exact same thing at the exact same time. This also has another effect, as it works with memory as well. If an opponent were to perform a specific physical attack, such as a punch-kick-punch combination or something along those lines, Nagato can memorize it and then even use it in the future. It should be noted this doesn't apply to abilities or powers, only physical techniques, or perhaps a special way of performing Cero or a similar situation. This means if Nagato himself is capable of it, he can copy it to great effect, and could even potentially improve upon it using his own various techniques and skills. This essentially makes Nagato a sponge in combat.
Eternal Mangekyo Shinime-ga: The Eternal Mangekyo Shinime-ga is the advanced form of Nagato's normal Shinime-gaeye-ability. The Eternal Mangekyo Shinime-ga allows the use of multiple special abilities such as Susanoo and Izanagi. The Eternal Mangekyo Shinime-ga also possesses some of its own special attributes. The main one being Nagato can completely sense the attributes, elements, and other factors of abilities. This means he can almost perfectly determine the type of ability/attack/technique used by someone. He can also "see" the reitsu in attacks, and find pinpoint weaknesses. Another innate ability is the Eternal Mangekyo Shinime-ga's innate ability to counter many eye-based abilities of those weaker than him (in tier) by making simple eye contact. However, this also means Nagato can cancel out almost all illusion-based abilities and techniques used against himself, making it extraordinarily difficult to trap him in an illusion or anything like it. This includes stopping illusion-based abilities used by those on his own tier level as well. Also, the Mangekyo Shinime-ga allows him to "see" movements before they happen. Essentially, this means if he is about to get punched in the face, he'll be able to "see it happen" before it does, giving him a higher chance to dodge. This isn't a large amount of time given to him, and if his body isn't fast enough, he'll just be seeing himself get beaten right before he actually gets beaten. This applies to hoth physical and metaphysical attacks, increasing the timeframe he has to dodge or block an attack from an opponent to a much longer amount of time, which serves to only accentuate his own immense and unreal speed. However, if he uses Eternal Mangekyo Shinime-ga for too long, his vision blurs, and he can even suffer from temporary blindness. This is why he rarely uses this advanced form of his Shinime-ga for more than 6-7 of his own posts. The amount of time Nagato can safely maintain and use the EMS has increased, partially due to his own increases in power and skill, and also because he has used it more and his body has thus learned to maintain it longer by adapting to it, making him more dangerous in the long run.
Kotoamatsukami: This is another ocular ability Nagato has access to when he has his Eternal Mangekyo Shinime-ga activated. Kotoamatsukami, as its name suggests, give Nagato a 'god-like subjugation ability'. Essentially this eye technique works by allowing Nagato to subjugate, or control, non-sentient objects of both physical and metaphysical properties. To do this, Nagato issues 'commands' that an object or attack cannot resist, even if it is being commanded to do otherwise by the originator or creator of said object. These 'commands' are issued by Nagato moving his gaze to the object in question, and then he has the ability to issue a command. This means that all he needs to do is be able to see something, and he can then command it in any way he wants, however the ability isn't so simple in that regard. He can only issue a single command to an object, meaning he cannot 'command' an object to do more than one thing, however he can issue commands to more than one object at once. The limit in this has to do with size of the object in question. He very clearly cannot comment any terrestrial entities, such as earth or its moon, as well as not being able to command an entire continent or ocean. If an object is not so large he cannot see it from end-to-end, then he can issue a command to it (there is also a distance factor: he cannot manipulate the moon by looking at it from earth). Commands issued are such as telling a boulder to 'crush ____', which will cause the boulder to follow the target until either A. The boulder doesn't exist anymore, or B. The boulder achieves its goals. The amount of energy consumed depends on the object in question: a miniscule amount for terrain, self-created objects, etc, while a more moderate amount is required for subjugating something being controlled by an opponent. Nagato is limited to using this ability three times at maximum, a post. (Note: Soul-bound objects cannot be commanded, such as Zanpakutō, etc, etc, while non-soul bound weapons/items being held by an opponent can be resisted if the owner of said weapon has enough physical or mental strength)
Izanami: While Izanagi has to do with preventing fate, Izanami instead "changes" it. First, it should be noted that this ability is potentially more dangerous, yet also much weaker, than Izanagi, as well as many of Nagato's other Eternal Mangekyo Shinime-ga abilities, and as such is only used extremely rarely. To activate this ability, Nagato mentally takes a 'snapshot' of both the physical and mental state of both him, his opponent, and essentially everybody in the area, at any random point in time. This 'snapshot' is then 'saved' by his Shinime-ga for later use with this ability. After taking the snapshot, Nagato must allow two major events or actions or even movements to occur, which must be executed by his opponent, not himself. The second event must be a mistake on the opponent's part, such as a missed attack, a simple poor choice in movement, or anything along those lines. After these two events occur, Nagato will then wait until he ends up in a situation similar to the original 'snapshot', such as the same position of both combatants in relation to each other, and then Nagato takes another mental 'snapshot'. At this point, all actions executed between the snapshots are reversed, sending everything back to the original snapshot, including damage done to either person (however, separated limbs do not disappear). This includes damage to the terrain, or anything like that. At this point, the opponent would not be aware of what had happened, however they may become aware as this ability is used more often. Also, this ability does not restore energy used by any combatant, so if they used a Cero, and then Izanami activated, they would still be without the energy from using the Cero. Due to being both unaware of this taking place, as well as their previous actions, the victim of this ability would end up doing (at least nearly) the exact same actions as they did previously, thus making it cyclic. The way for an opponent to stop this ability is to realize the mistake of their action, and then try to do the 'right' thing. After doing so, this ability will end, and then it cannot be used again during a thread. The ability itself takes very little energy to use, as that would go against the entire purpose of the ability, which is to exhaust the opponent until they understand what they did wrong, as well as its primary downside being only a single use per thread.
Susanoo: This is another special technique only available to Nagato when he is using his Eternal Mangekyo Shinime-ga. Susanoo, also known as the Tempestuous God of Valour (勇武の荒神, Yūbu no Aragami), is the third ability granted by the Mangekyō Shinime-ga after awakening the abilities in both eyes. It creates a gigantic, humanoid being that surrounds the user. As the strongest technique granted to those that have acquired the Mangekyō Shinime-ga, it is the user's guardian deity, but at the same time, it consumes the user's life. It is a form of summoning, as it makes Nagato's spiritual energy form into a giant armored being that is constantly exuding a flame-like aura. This being is quite large, about 30 feet tall, and its weapons are large as well. It has a gigantic shield almost as big as its body itself, and can be used to block many attacks. It has a natural resistance to the fire element, being able to block most fire-based attacks with ease. It also has a gigantic flame-like sword, and has a high amount of slashing damage. It can also shoot blasts of fire from its blade, causing a quite high amount of damage. Susanoo can be summoned in a different form as well. By just using a small portion of reitsu, Nagato can summon only the ribs of Susanoo which can act like a useful shield from a good amount of attacks. Nagato no longer feel's pain when using Susanoo, and the energy consumption has been dramatically decreased. Also, it is 100% and completely impossible for any foe or ally to copy this ability in any way shape or form. One last characteristic of note is the inability for individuals to absorb energy involved with or created by Nagato when he is using Susanoo. As stated before when describing the rib-cage form, Nagato's Susanoo has multiple forms that can be used. These forms include what is listed below.
Rib-Cage Form: The lowest and most basic form of Nagato's Susanoo is this form. Essentially, Nagato can only create the rib cage of the Susanoo 'being' and have it surround his body in both shape and a dark red, flame-like aura constantly changing shape and moving, but not actual flame (he can cover the susanoo in Amaterasu, however). The rib cages are rather large, each one being able to wrap around Nagato completely, and are very wide as well, about as wide as Nagato's torso is long. Each rib has a large hole through it completely at about the middle of them, length wise. The ribs are connected to a very large spinal cord located behind Nagato while this form is active. The primary use of this form is defense, as the ribs are even more difficult to damage than Nagato is, thus giving him an extremely dangerous set of armor. However, that isn't to say they can't be cracked or broken off if overwhelming force is used to do so. When a rib is broken, Nagato can restore it, but it takes more energy to do so. Not only that, but Nagato can be thrown out of it, which would end the technique abruptly, if this somehow occurs. Also, Nagato is capable of summoning a single Susanoo arm, which can be used to grab objects or people, punch, and slam. The ribcage is actually only one 'layer' of the Susanoo, which explains the dramatic increases in durability from form to form. Nagato likes this form thanks to its mobility, as it allows him to move around much more than his normal Susanoo. This form has very little energy consumption, and has only very slightly taxing on Nagato, allowing him to keep it up essentially the entire length of an average thread.
Full Body Form: This is the normal form of Nagato's Susanoo, before it transforms at all. As such, this is the form Nagato is most likely to use, excluding the Ribcage form. The appearance of Susanoo in this form is that of an entire skeleton wrapped and covered in an aura of energy that makes it somewhat resemble a human, though it is also very demonic in appearance. It has very large, sharp teeth, a single long horn, and brightly glowing eyes. Its arms also appear to be extraordinarily muscular, despite being semi-transparent. When Nagato uses this form, he usually only uses the torso and anything connected to it as he much prefers to fight on the ground with it, due to it actually anchoring him to the earth, making it difficult to move him. However, if Nagato wants to, this form can also possess a lower body, and thus legs, allowing it to move around more. Depending on whether or not Nagato is inside a building or some cramped place, Nagato would change its size from its normal 35 feet tall when its full body is revealed to something smaller. This form retains the sheer durability of the Ribcage form, though on an even higher level due to being much larger than the ribcage form, as well as having a vastly superior amount of energy pumped into it. However, the Full Body Susanoo also has incredible strength at its service. By using its arms and fists to attack, Susanoo can cause an incredible amount of physical damage, smashing even powerful defenses to pieces. That's not all though, as it can also form swords made of fire-like energy that are extremely sharp, and can also be wielded by all four of its arms. This requires a moderate amount of energy to maintain, and thus puts a moderate amount of stress on Nagato's body.
Unstable Final Susanoo: Though Nagato's Full-Body Susanoo is very powerful, this more advanced form is even more so. In reality, this is less a separate form and more like the first part of the Final Susanoo, which it really is. This form also happens to be much larger than the previous version: its upper body alone is about 3 times as tall as the entire body of the Full-Body form, and it is also much larger in general than it, including the limbs. Speaking of limbs, the arms of this form are now covered in a layer of overlapping plates of armor, giving it an appearance of "peeling". Also, it is no longer semitransparent, as now it appears to wear clothing on its torso that slightly resembles a robe. Also, it has a huge 'cape'-like piece of clothing that covers its head and most of its body. Its entire face is completely black and hidden, with only its brightly lit glowing eyes peeking out. Overall, this form is much more powerful than the previous version, possessing both an immensely increased physical strength as well as a much higher level of durability, making it extraordinarily difficult to even slightly damage. This form also retains all four arms, and as such can be equipped with four powerful energy swords that can cut through entire mountains rather easily thanks to the tremendous amount of force this Susanoo is capable. This form takes up considerably more energy, and requires much more energy to maintain than its previous forms, thus making it more difficult to maintain, especially for extended periods of time. It is also slightly unstable, and is thus more difficult to control by Nagato, and is also more taxing on him mentally as well.
Stable Final Susanoo: After conjuring the Unstable version of this Susanoo, Nagato can then advance it by stabilising and controlling its energy, as well as adding even more energy into, and can thus evolve it into this Final Form. This form, very clearly, is the absolute largest form or version of Susanoo that Nagato is capable of creating, being taller than even large buildings. In height, the Stable Final Form Susanoo is roughly three hundred meters tall, or about 984 feet, making it as tall as an average skyscraper from 2013, and is equal in height to the Eiffel tower. It also happens to be equally proportioned, making it extremely large in all aspects. In fact, it is so large, by simply walking it can cause miniature quakes in the ground, and can cause extreme damage to the terrain without even trying. This form has a long, angular tengu nose, and actual face, robes covering its entire body, large pointed shoes, and massive armor on its shoulders and hips. Nagato's Susanoo also possesses "hair" in this form, which is tied up at the sides. Its back set of arms, which are still plated, extend upwards like wings and its front set of arms, which lose their plating, are somewhat smaller than the plated arms. The undulating blades are replaced with straight katana, which are kept sheathed inside the palms of Susanoo's back arms and wielded by its forearms. Nagato completely disappears when he uses this form, as he is enveloped completely by the Susanoo's massive body. In this form, a single swing of one of its katana is enough to slice through an entire mountain range, and thus able to completely destroy and change surrounding terrain. The sheer power of this Susanoo is so incredible, its been said to be comparable to Beast Demon Warlords of old in power. The durability of this form is increased to the point of being nigh-indestructable, being able to be damaged by only some of the most powerful of powerful offenses. Despite being so massively large, this Susanoo possesses the capability to travel at rather high speeds, equivalent to Nagato's normal body in his Segunda Etapa form, thus being deceptively quick. Despite all of the benefits Nagato gains by using this form, it is also extremely exhausting both physically and mentally, and requires a massive amount of energy to maintain. Not only that, but Nagato can only maintain this form for up to three posts, four if he absolutely pushes himself, and is left extremely weakened afterwards. If Nagato were to cancel this ability early, he would be relatively drained and exhausted, however it should be noted that the primary cause of mass energy consumption during the use of this ability doesn't have to do with the initial summoning, it has to do with maintaining it, meaning if he were to only use it for a short time and then cancel it, he wouldn't be too badly off, but if he were to wait a couple of posts, he'd be in pretty bad shape.Event Only.
Tsukuyomi: This is another one of Nagato's ocular abilities related to his Eteneral Mangekyo Shinime-ga. This ability, unlike many of his others, is illusion-based and does not actually affect the physical world at all. To activate this ability, Nagato must make direct eye contact with his opponent, which also happens to include reflections, such as if the opponent looked at Nagato's eyes through a mirror or anything similar. After making direct eye contact, the illusion begins. Essentially, it cuts off the perception of the victim and forces their mind into an alternate reality where Nagato has complete control. In this 'reality', Nagato can do as he pleases as far as physical harm goes to his opponent, though he cannot actually manipulate their body. However, any physical damage done to the opponent within this 'reality' does not continue on to the real world when this technique ends, which means Nagato can inflict tremendous mental damage to the victim instead. This technique also alters the intended target's perception of time dramatically: just a few seconds in the real world equates to hours of torture within the alternate reality. This means Nagato can do the same amount of mental damage to an opponent from days of torture, in just a short time. All of the mental stress accumulated during this is all gathered together and then hits the opponent all at once when this technique ends, essentially mentally cracking and/or crippling even opponents with even absolutely tremendous willpower or stalwart mentality. However, there are some major drawbacks to using this ability. The primary downside is just how much energy it takes to use this: due to the sheer power of this technique, as well as it having to be extremely quick, Nagato is gained tremendously from using it, more so than the vast majority of his other abilities. Also, due to both Nagato and the victim being inside a mental realm, their bodies essentially become unmoving statues that stand still, making this ability nigh-unusable in fights where Nagato is outnumbered. Also, this ability can only be used a maximum of twice a thread, no matter how many people are in it, due in part to the energy required to use it, as well as the stress placed on Nagato's body. Also, it should be noted that individuals with extreme willpower can, in fact, break out of the illusion before it finishes, allowing a person to prevent them self from receiving maximum damage.
Kamui: Kamui is a one of Nagato's more powerful techniques while in his Eternal Mangekyo Shinime-ga form. Using the ability granted to him by his Eternal Mangekyō Shinime-ga, Nagato can create a barrier sending everything within its vicinity to another dimension. He can also control the size of the barrier, being able to make it from the size of a small cat to the size of an entire human. It has been said there is seemingly (its not impossible to defend against, it just hasnt been blocked/stopped yet) impossible to defend against. However, the eye that was used to create this attack immediately gets struck by so much pain, that it becomes close to impossible for Nagato to hold it open. This also causes blood to seep from his eye, as damage to his eye is actually caused by this technique. However, due to his pain endurance and willpower, he can still use the weakened eye. Due to mastering the Eternal Mangekyo Shinime-ga even further, this technique no longer causes any where near as much pain as it used to, and also barely damages his eye. The main result of this advancement is that Nagato can use this technique repeatedly within a thread, without having to worry about severe pain or damage to himself. It should also be noted he can use this technique on himself, sending himself to another dimension (a completely empty dimension with nothing but solid ground), and can then send himself back. He can only stay in the other dimension for up to a single post. If Nagato were to use Kamui on an object or energy attack, such as a Cero, he could then open up Kamui again in another place, which allows him to essentially send attacks right back at people, giving him an element of surprise in combat.
Izanagi: Izanagi is the only current ability Nagato can use without using his Eternal Mangekyo Shinime-ga, though it suffers from much worse downsides than any other ability he has. This technique is capable of turning injuries and even death inflicted upon the user into mere illusions. Whenever the user receives a fatal injury, he or she automatically fades away as though they were an illusion all along and then returns back to reality; physically real and unscathed. Though, this technically isnt an illusion, as it has to do with removing ones body from existence and then reforming it a second or two later. This only lasts 2 posts, and only works on moderate to fatal injuries, and that is when its effects take place, allowing him to completely cancel out damage. He can choose to reform his body anywhere he wants to within 50 meters of the initial effect. Now, for the downsides. After the 2 consecutive posts are up, Nagato loses eyesight in one of his eyes, severely crippling his battle capabilities, while also losing a large portion of energy and feeling a good amount of pain as well, due to it being one of his stronger EMS abilities. However, this isn't permanent. The moment Nagato ends his Eternal Mangekyo Shinime-ga, or even Shinime-ga, Nagato regains eyesight in one or both of his eyes, however he can't use this technique again in the same thread where he already used it with both eyes, meaning he can only use it up to a maximum of two times per thread.
Amaterasu: The jet-black flames of the Amaterasu, said to be the fires from hell that are as hot as the sun, ignite at the focus of the user's vision. The flames are capable of burning through anything in their path, even smothering regular fire techniques with ease. Amaterasu is said to never stop burning; even when whatever is caught by the Amaterasu is completely reduced to ash or destroyed, it can still continue burning for seven days and seven nights. It cannot be extinguished with water or any other normal methods, and for the most part, is inextinguishable. However, the flames burn fairly slowly, allowing anyone struck by Amaterasu an opportunity to remove whatever clothing or body parts have been caught ablaze. Amaterasu puts considerable strain on his right eye, causing immense pain and even causing said eye to bleed. Nagato cannot infinitely summon these flames, though he can summon a large amount. The flames of Amaterasu are much, much hotter than regular fire, and is superior to the vast majority of spiritually-enhanced flames people are capable of using. Amaterasu can also be combined with some of his other techniques as well. Nagato could use Amaterasu on his Susanoo, which gives it an aura of armor made of jet black flame, which usually prevents people from attacking him as once they touch the fire, it spreads to them. It can also be combined with Kamui, allowing him to create a wave of fire that spreads out in every direction. He could also create bombs using his wood-based techniques, light them on fire with Amaterasu, and then when they explode they will cause mass chaos and even more damage than normal.
Nature Release: An advanced nature combination element that combines earth and water-based element natures to create wood or complete trees. This ability can also be used to create other aspects of trees, such as seeds or flowers. Wood Release techniques can be produced from anywhere, including the user's body, as the user's spiritual energy is literally converted into a source of life. This ability has multiple special techniques that make it even more useful to Nagato. The wood used with these techniques is much different than that of an average tree's. Instead, this wood is extremely, extremely durable, so much to the point that an enemy that hasn't successfully damaged Nagato may believe it is of the same durability as him, though it should be noted this is incorrect as the wood isn't quite that durable. Also, this wood possesses a flame-resistant property to the point where Nagato can light it on fire with his Amaterasu flames, and the wood can stay standing for quite some time without being damaged very much, meanwhile even extremely heat-resistant metals aren't enough to do this against the black flames of Amaterasu. As an added note, all Wood Release techniques can be utilized while Nagato only has the normal Shinime-ga active, thus making these techniques much more feasible in combat.
Nature Release: Wood Clone Technique: A clone that is created by altering the user's own cells with reitsu. It has more endurance than normal clones and doesn't disappear when hit by the enemies' attacks. Moreover, since it has the ability to merge with plants and trees, it is also great for reconnaissance missions. They have the ability to travel far distances from the user and are able to communicate with the original. The clone is made up of the user's own cells, transformed into vegetation. Because of this, when it is changed into a seed and ingested into the body or left on a target, it can be used as a transmission device of sorts. The user can use these to track their target as the seeds respond to their energy only. This and all other uses make this technique extremely convenient and, according to Nagato, a perfect clone technique that only he, with his Shinime-ga, was able to see through. The clones are rather adapt at fighting, though each one is only about 1/20th of Nagato's power, which limits him to summoning 20 at most. Also, while Nagato does say they are infallible, nature-oriented beings can see through them if they try hard enough, and someone fighting the clones might be able to as well due to their being slight differences between them and Nagato himself in combat. These clones retain an extreme level of speed and durability, being able to fight on the same level of weaker opponents without much worry. Also, it should be noted that each clone comes equipped with an Eternal Mangekyo Shinime-ga, increasing their overall power and level of danger exponentially. However, the only EMS technique they can perform is Susanoo: each clone can maintain up to the Full Body Susanoo form for up to 2 posts each before referring to their normal form, and then losing all power, thus turning back into blank pieces of wood.
Nature Release Secret Technique: Nativity of a World of Trees: The user forces trees to grow on any viable surface, easily creating a dense forest anywhere they choose. A small plant can grow into a forest in an instant. By generating spiritual energy, the user manoeuvres it as they see fit for attack and defence; and furthermore, this omnipotent technique even allows them to capture the enemy at the same time. With their tremendous life force, the trees can pierce through earthen walls, and extend their branches at their prey in an instant. This is one of his more draining wood techniques. Nagato is also limited in the amount he can make, as eventually he would run out of energy or there wouldnt be room in the area for them. However, thanks to Nagato's absolutely immense level of spiritual energy, he can rather easily use and maintain this ability for quite some time. Also, it should be noted the trees are extremely difficult to destroy, though even damaging them can be difficult for many fighters. This, coupled with the insane speed and surprise factor of the trees, make it one of Nagato's more dangerous wood techniques. Nagato can use this so supremely that he can revert massive sections of even large cities to very dense forests, allowing him to essentially 'delete' civilization.
Nature Release: Advent of a World of Flowering Trees: Taking advantage of the innate properties of Wood Release — to be able to force trees to grow on any surface in an instant — the user creates a dense forest of flowering trees. The pollen produced by these flowers is then released into the atmosphere and when inhaled, renders any afflicted target unconscious. It takes multiple posts for one to go unconscious, however, and stronger individuals are more resistant to it. He can only activate this ability once a thread. With enough willpower, it is possible to regain consciousness and stop from going unconscious in the first place. However, in order to counter the technique fully, either the trees themselves must be destroyed completely or the target must continue to remain elevated above the dispersed pollen.
Nature Release: Four-Pillar Prison Technique: The user converts energy into timber under the ground and makes it grow rapidly, while forming it into a wooden prison. The size of the prison is based on the user's imagination. From an insect cage to a great prison, one can make it into whatever they want by regulating the amount of chakra used. The timber itself is treated with a chakra coating, making its destruction extremely difficult. During war, it has the great ability to detain prisoners, but it can also be used as a disciplinary measure for quarrelling subordinates.
Nature Release: Four-Pillar House Technique: By sending energy into the ground, the roots of the plants are converted into raw materials. This technique allows for a building to be constructed, by forcing accelerated growth. Just like with the Four-Pillar Prison Technique, the size and shape of the building are taken from the user's imagination or memories. By placing tags around the house, the user creates a barrier, making it impossible for the enemy to detect it and allowing the user to "camp" in peace. This ability is relatively draining, more so than making clones, but less so than Nativity of Trees. It can also only be used a limited number of times, a few times per thread.
Nature Release: Great Forest Technique: A technique that changes one's own arm into big trees. Using reitsu, the tissues are transformed into trees at the cellular level. Then, by activating the trees, stimulating them to grow rapidly, they lengthen at high speed and fork into many branches. It is possible to capture the enemy with these branches and at the same time, if one changes the ends into sharp stakes, turn them into countless, sharp, spear-like piercing weapons.
Nature Release: Tree Bind Flourishing Burial: This technique lets the user summon a tree around their opponent to bind them. This technique is relatively powerful and holds opponents much more gracefully, with less of a strain on the user, because the user sinks them into the ground. Afterwards, the user can enclose the opponent so that their body implodes.
Nature Release: Wood Locking Wall: An extremely versatile move, this technique uses reitsu to activate the roots in the ground and, using the user of the technique as a reference point, makes wooden pillars appear from left and right. The wooden pillars join together in a dome-shape with the user at the centre. This process can be used to catch the enemy in a double sided attack. Also, in case one confronts the enemy at a short distance, the enemy can be locked up inside the dome, setting the situation for a one-on-one fight. This dome can also be collapsed or burnt with the enemy inside to inflict damage. Furthermore, it functions as an easy shelter against the enemy's long-distance attacks, like Cero and Bala.
Nature Release: World of Trees Wall: The user creates countless wooden branches that grow at high speed from the ground. The branches interlace to form a wide, net-like wall with an impressive defensive power, being resistant to both physical and energy attacks. This technique can be used to make 4 walls surrounding Nagato, giving him protection from almost every direction.

Subject Post 4Subject: Re: Nagato Tengan, Hollow King [ 0-2++][Legendary Event Class] Wed Apr 25, 2012 10:53 pm
|The History of the Sage|:
Nagato was born over ten thousand years ago, long before most civilizations ever existed. As a matter of fact, he was born before the Neolithic Revolution occurred, meaning he was born to nomads and tribesman that roamed around searching for food. He was born into a particularly small family, a father, mother, and a sister. He didnt really have a name (actually, he doesnt remember what it is, so he says he never had a name as a human, but he may actually be mistaken). He wasnt named Nagato until he became an arrancar, thousands of years ago.
All that is really known about Nagato when he was alive is the fact that he grew up learning how to be a hunter for his group of fellow tribesman and nomads, learning the basics of bow-wielding, spear hunting, fishing, and all the other ways men hunted back then. To be honest, he doesnt remember if he was any good at it either, though this is mainly do to his age. He thinks his father was the leader of the group, thus making him the next in line to become the tribal leader, but hes not too sure about this either.
Nagato does however remember his death as clear as day, even to this day. He remembers one day he was out on a hunt with his father and some other tribesman, when he was attacked by people from another tribe. These people, however, were extremely barbaric, attacking a young man, even though he had done nothing wrong to them, and was just on a hunt. Apparently they thought he was a member of an enemy tribe that they had been fighting for years, but he wasnt. He was just a peaceful young kid.
A large, muscular man with face pain came screaming out of the bushes, rushing Nagato with a ferocity he had never known. Before he could react however, another man came out behind him and captured him by grabbing his arms and legs. With a punch straight to the stomach, Nagato began to feel sick and was in serious pain. In just a few seconds, he went from being a simple tribe member of a peaceful group of nomads, to being a simple tribe member of a peaceful group of nomads impaled by a spear. Not many people can say that happened to them when they were alive.
In a matter of seconds, Nagato was dead. The last thing he saw before the monster known as Death came for him and took him away, was the insane face of a human that was reveling in Nagato's very own blood, that was seeping out of his mouth, nose, and chest, where his stab wound was. Who knew humans could be such monsters? So incredibly insane? Well, this was something Nagato was going to take with him for the rest of his life. or, life as a Hollow at least.
After what seemed like ages, Nagato was finally able to open his eyes. Except he wasnt really opening them, was he? He was a ghost now. A spirit, a spirit that wanted revenge. Revenge more than anything. If he could, he would slaughter every single human he saw, making them feel the same exact pain he felt as he died, waiting for his family to come save him, for those insane bastards to stop laughing at his weak and dying body. Such shameful beasts they were, humans that is. And at this point, all he could comprehend was killing them. Killing them with absolutely no remorse whatsoever.
As he began to grow more and more revengeful, he realized he could get the people that killed him. He could find them and destroy their lives, rip them to shreds if he so wished. He decided to hunt them down and murder them in cold blood, ending their lives as viciously as they had his. After searching for a week or so, he ended up finding the location of the tribe that had this murderers in a small temporary encampment to the south of his won tribe.
After finding them, he waited until they were having a festival of sorts, celebrating their most recent hunt, as it ended up being quite successful. Once the entire group was in the center of the camp, Nagato made his move. He was able to semi-materialize his hand, and was now able to grab a piece of wood. He then lit the end of the piece of wood on fire, and brought it to all the shelters on the outside rim,a s well as the trees. Everything around them was lit on fire, and they had no way to escape. All they could do was drop to the ground as they began to suffocate on the smoke, and burn alive from the fire. Which is exactly what they did.
This main event is what lead to Nagato becoming a Hollow. His Chain of Fate began to erode at almost legendary speeds. As a matter of fact, his chain of fate had eroded faster than almost any other Spirit's Chain of Fate had ever eroded in history. In just minutes it had eroded almost 2 centimeters. In an hour, it was already half done. After a few hours, his Chain of Fate had eroded completely, and thus his transformation into a Hollow had begun. White light and magnificent energy had blazed all around his body, causing anyone in the vicinity to black out from the insane burst of spiritual energy within Nagato's body. After the energy faded a few moments later, Nagato had officially begun his life as a Hollow.
In this new form, all he could think of was hunger. He just wanted to consume more and more and more and more souls, an endless thirst befitting of such a monstrous beast. He went around for months, years, even decades, consuming more and more souls. His thirst for souls was much greater than most Hollows, because by that time they were already at their Gillian stage, while he just grew stronger and stronger in his stage of Hollowhood. By the time he was at human soul number 1, 248, he began to taste the dullness of human souls that had previously not existed in his mind. Instead of human souls...he wanted......Hollows? Yes, he finally began to want to consume Hollows. He was far past the normal point that Hollows turn on each other, so he was much stronger than the others, which in turn allowed him to consume them even more and more easily than he normally would.
He tasted the first Hollow he had ever tasted just 2 days after his last human soul feast. And what a taste that was. It drove him wild, wanting more and more of it, even more so than the fresh taste of a humans soul. With this new hunger, he began hunting down other Hollows in a feverish rampage, consuming every single one he came across. He even ended up consuming a Gillian at some point, taking in hundreds of souls at once. This is actually what sparked his next transformation. In an even bigger mass of energy than what had surrounded him during his first Hollow transformation, he began to change. He grew gigantic, though he didnt know this. All he knew was he was now in a giant pool of other swimmers, all struggling to win the gold medal: Control. Each and every Hollow spirit wanted control over the body of this creature, though one in particular had a head start. Due to how strong he had become, Nagato had little to no trouble beating out all the other competitors in this alpha-or-omega fight, and took control over his new body. Throughout all of this, all he wanted was more food. And by food, I of course, mean more Hollows and souls to consume. Starting out earlier than most Gillians, Nagato started attacking other Gillians, feasting on their bodies and energy and souls, doubling, no tripling, no quadrupling the amount of Hollows that was in his body.
He slowly consumed most of the Gillian population on Earth, and even in Hueco Mundo, destroying the population of most Hollows. it turns out, Nagato was a major reason for the lack of high-level hollows until the major outbreak occurred a few hundred years ago. As a matter of fact, he was actually one of the few remaining high-leveled Hollows until Ashlei ended up showing up. After such a monstrous feast of other Gillians, Nagato went through yet another transformation. Light enveloped his body, though instead of getting bigger this time, he ended up shrinking down to a just a fraction of what he had been before. He was revealed to have become an Adjuchas, far superior to the others around him.
One day, Nagato ended up hearing of a tale in which a Hollow had surpassed even the level known as Adjuchas. Somehow, they had gone past their fellow Hollows, and had obtained a new, previously unheard of, level of power that far outclassed even Adjuchas. Nagato had found a new goal. He realized that every time he had evolved as a Hollow, it was because he had consumed a ridiculous amount of his Hollow brethren. This must mean he could become a Vasto Lorde if he consumed even more souls and Hollows. Which he did gladly.
He went around Hueco Mundo, just searching for random Hollows, and ate them. one after one, they all fell to his crazy goal and insatiable appetite. He was growing both powerful and infamous. He was known all across Hueco Mundo as a vicous monster who only cared about power, which to tell the truth, is what he essentially was. He was power hungry, and he was willing to do anything to get more power than he already had. So, he kept consuming Hollows for years to come, not slowing down, not faltering, but increasing his pace of Hollow consumption. In a single century, he had consumed over ten thousand other Hollows, which even during modern times is ridiculous, as most arrancar had only eaten a few thousand at best before they became an arrancar.
Eventually, Nagato noticed the power increases from consuming Hollows begin to fade, though not entirely. He began to think he needed stronger prey, which lead him to searching out that single Hollow that had made it to the level of Vasto lorde. He ended up finding him in one of the far corners of Hueco Mundo, living peacefully alone, not consuming any Hollows anymore. Too bad Nagato ended up disrupting his nice life by himself.
Nagato challenged the Vasto to a fight, to which he immediately replied with a big fat "No" to the face. This angered Nagato beyond any other hatred he had ever felt. The he remembered. he remembered everything that happened to himself in his life. His birth....his life......even his death. he even remembered when he slaughtered the humans that had killed him. And now he had a new goal: Destroy all humans. They were monsters that needed to be taught a lesson. However, the only way he would be able to achieve such a goal is through power. Power he would get from consuming this Vasto lorde. He attacked the Hollow, going for its head. Oddly enough, the battle was quite easily won by Nagato. What he didnt know, was the Vasto Lorde had remembered everything that had happened to himself during his life, and wanted to die, as he was both ashamed and depressed.
With his newfound power, he began another transportation, one that would shake Hueco Mundo to its core. An absolutely insane amount of spiritual energy covered his entire body, swirling around him in a vicious hurricane of power and light. After a few short moments, his new form stepped out of the dust and smoke, showing off his power and new knowledge. With that Vasto lorde, he had gained the knowledge and memories of thousands of new souls, adding to his tremendous collection. He didnt end up eating or consuming any other Hollows after his transformation into a Vasto Lorde, simply because he knew it wouldnt push him past this level anymore. He was either at the peak of his power, or had reached a wall he had to climb over. He decided on the latter, as there was no way he was going to give up getting stronger.
Thousands of years past, and eventually he ended up meeting his first Shinigami. This was about 3500 years before the current time, and before a lot of organizations had come together. The first Shinigami he had ever met was a man that went by Genryuusai Yamamoto. He was pretty young, much younger than Nagato at that time, and didnt really know what Nagato was. He even admitted this to the Hollow, wondering how he had obtained such strength, when the strongest Hollows he had ever fought were only Adjuchas level. After a discussion between the two, Yamamoto decided such a powerful Hollow couldnt exist, because that could spell doom for Soul Society. So, they clashed. Due to Yamamotos yound age and lack of major battle experience and knowledge, Nagato actually had the upper hand in this battle, outclassing the Shinigami in seemingly everything. This battle actually is what triggered Nagato's transformation into an Arrancar, because something inside his head just gone off, telling him to pull off his mask, which is what he did. He began to be covered in energy, energy that even scared Yamamoto (this was a very young Yamamoto, which is key in this battle. an older one wouldnt have had so much trouble and certainly wouldnt be scared). After the smoke cleared, Nagato appeared to be a completely new being, far above anything anybody could have ever fathomed. However, he also gained more self control and was a bit more relaxed as an Arrancar. So, he decided to leave that place and return to Hueco Mundo for now, which is what he did.
Throughout the thousands of years of Nagato's existence, none have posed a viable threat except for Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto, the previous Captain Commander of the Gotei 13. However, after he became an Arrancar, another posed a threat....actually, this person did more than that, they went so far as to defeat Nagato in battle, something no other person has ever done. This person is Hashirama Senju, a Shinigami who discovered Nagato's existence and attempted to kill him. Nagato met this man in the real world, somewhere in Asia that Nagato has yet to reveal as the battlegrounds. When they encountered each other, Nagato challenged the man, who accepted it, more than ready for a fight. Throughout the fight, it was clear even Nagato could not defeat this man, who even had to use his Ressureccion to stay on even ground. However, once the man pulled out his trump card, Nagato immediately began to lose. Nagato lost; it was clear from the beginning that this would be the outcome. However, before he could be killed, Nagato escaped via Garganta, returning to Hueco Mundo where he would train for multiple millenia, gaining enough strength to hopefully defeat the Shinigami who once overpowered him.
Nagato was recently approached by a mysterious man that offered him power and a leadership role in a large organization. After learning of the Org's goal, Nagato gladly accepted.
The Death and The Return
Infiltrating the Rinyūaru headquarters wasnt necessarily difficult for Zefonse Kaizme, and neither was making it all the way to Nagato. Zefonse attacked Nagato, and eventually appeared victorious, killing the man who once controlled an entire organization relatively easily. Zefonse then took over the Rinyūaru, with Nagato never able to challenge him, as he was gone forever.....or was he?
Turns out Nagato knew he was going to be attacked. He also knew who was going to do it. On the night Zefonse attacked, Nagato created a seemingly perfect clone of himself to fill his shoes and die by the hand of the god of battle Zefonse. Nagato actually left the Rinyūaru base before Zefonse even got there. He traveled across Asia, biding his time, waiting for the right moment to return. That time.....is now.
Long before the founding of the Rinyūaru by Nagato, another group was founded by the man as well: the Akatsuki. The organization is extremely secretive, with its founding unknown to most people in existence. While the Akatsuki have been around for a long, long time, just recently they have become more active in the world, with their main goal unknown to all but Nagato himself. Perhaps in the near future, their true purpose will be revealed; and perhaps the world should prepare itself for when it does.

I have noticed a few things wrong in this app that need to be fixed so till then moved to WIP
“Shinra Tensei is the ability to manipulate gravity at the user's will to repulse matter away. Depending on the amount of force the user puts in this technique, it can easily shatter wood, bones, metal, or stone walls. By using this technique as a defensive measure, almost all attacks directed to the user will be deflected, no matter the size, power or mass (its to be noted that the larger the attack, the more resistance they can put up, but in the end it doesn't matter). It can also be used to repel flames caught on the user's body. The only downside to this technique is that there is a short period when it is unusable after being used. The minimal time period is about five seconds, but it varies depending on the amount of power put into the attack. Even if Nagato's energy is removed, or energy-use is removed from combat, Nagato still has access to this ability since it doesn't technically use any energy nor is it technically gravity-based, so cancelling gravity powers doesn't work either. While in Ressureccion, the Deva Path uses this ability.”
Alright..... Let me point out the main problem “. Even if Nagato's energy is removed, or energy-use is removed from combat, Nagato still has access to this ability since it doesn't technically use any energy nor is it technically gravity-based, so cancelling gravity powers doesn't work either. “ You need to place energy drain on it, since its you performing the move, makes it needed to have a drain, and this move needs a weakness as well, a way to escape IE adding a escape means by using high speed movement, otherwise it is unfair to use,
Banshō Ten'in also has the same problem as above, you NEED to have a escape means, and energy drain. no one can have a special move they can spam forever.
The second special and limited to the Human Path ability the Human Path has goes by Soul Disruption. By focusing Spiritual Power into an arm, he can shove his arm straight through the soul of the person he is attacking, ignoring all defenses. Even though Shinigami and Arrancar are technically already souls, this still works in the same way it does humans. By stabbing his arm through a persons body (not actually stabbing it through, like what Ulqiuorra did to Ichigo), he can disrupt their bodily functions and movements, impairing their hand-eye coordination as well. In the worst case scenario, it can even switch the opponents limb control. They would have to move their right arm with their brain, for their left arm to move, and so on so forth. However, this can make the opponent feel the same pain they would if the Human Path actually stuck his arm through their body, which makes this a very good torture technique. Though, due to the fact that if he does it enough he can overload the opponents brain with pain, thus causing them to black out, it isnt used in rapid succession when used for torture. Also, unless his arm goes all the way through his opponents body, the ability doesnt cause any of its effects.”
Let me point out what's wrong “ By focusing Spiritual Power into an arm, he can shove his arm straight through the soul of the person he is attacking, ignoring all defenses.” there has to be a means to stop such a move, it is powerful, too powerful to even block? you need a means to stop and attack, you need a way to block, and how to counter it when affected, how long will this last?
“his Shinra Tensei also gains a large boost in power. He can push away even larger/stronger attacks/objects, able to send weak enemies flying for miles from this ability.”
yeaaaaaaaaaah you need more limits to this, while strong for a Duex you need to limit it, saying you can send them flying for miles is really pushing it , and you really need to define weaker, if its people WEAKER than him, then that's a major issue, since that be a lot of people under him.
Also note you need PERMISSION for a Segunda this is labeled as a Duex, so fix that wording issue as well
“Nagato retains the same basic element of the Preta Paths "Spiritual Shockwave Field", but instead, Nagato only has one color to use: Black. While this color is activated, the area around Nagato is completely pitch black. The size of the zone is about 50 meters in every direction from Nagato when he activates this ability. It basically creates a shadow realm, without actual shadows. it is so dark it is impossible to see in it, and any powers that allow one to see in the dark are cancelled. It also makes it impossible to sense Reitsu, meaning even a giant spiritual energy would go unnoticed while in zone. While in this area, it is impossible to tell what is up, down, left or right. Meaning, you might think you are standing like normal, but in reality you are upside down. Mechanical objects are deactivated, though this only applies to those outside of ones body, or in crevices of ones body, such as the Mechanical Eye. All other senses besides sight are heightened, such as hearing, taste, smell, etc. It is in fact possible to escape from this area, as all it is, is a large sphere. Just by walking, you would eventually make it out. This stays active until Nagato leaves the area. Even if he wills it to deactivate while he is inside, it wont work. he actually has to leave the area himself.”
You need more counters to this, and a way for people to see and such while inside.
A special property of the combination of Rinnegan and Sharingan that Nagato achieves while in this form is the use of all five nature releases: Fire Release, Water Release, Lightning Release, Earth Release, and Wind Release. Essentially, this gives Nagato control over all five of these elements in battle, making him quite a powerful ranged fighter as well as a physical fighter. Due to not only his age, but his energy levels and years of practice, Nagato has extremely high control over these various elements to the point of being able to combine them, such as using both the Fire Release and Earth Release at the same time to create lava, something much stronger than either the Fire or Earth releases are separate. By combining these various elements, he essentially becomes stronger than single element users as he always has the opposite element to combat them since he can use water and wind together to make typhoons and even hurricanes. Some other examples of combination releases are Ice Release (Water and Win), Boil Release (Fire and Water), Storm Release (Lightning and Water, Dust Release (Earth, Wind, and Fire), etc, etc. The weakness to this, is before he can use a certain element he has to actually say the elements name then "Release", ie "Water Release" or "Fire Release". Due to the complexity of using his own energy to change the element of an ability to use, he cannot just go "Fire Release" then instantly "Water Release" then instantly "Earth Release". Instead, he require a cooldown between using elements, such as waiting a little while after he uses Water to use Fire. This doesn't apply to combination elements like Ice in that, Ice isn't considered to separate Releases, but this doesnt mean he can instantly switch between Ice and another Release. One might say it would just be easier to stick to a single release in a fight.”
Look does Nagato really need this after all he can do listed above? but now he has control over all elements, i would be fine if it was this form only powerset, however it isn’t, and you didn’t list any special attacks or what he can do with this, making it broken or just making up attacks as you go on with these releases. So either remove it, or change it around and LIST what he can do, at most 1 move per element if you try to keep it.
The main issue with Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan you need to remove one tiny part “(Can now be used in base state). “ just remove that and it be fine
“Tsukuyomi: This is a special technique that can only be used while Nagato is using his Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan eye form. Tsukuyomi requires eye contact to be performed. When executed, the technique traps the target in an illusion that is completely controlled by the user. Nagato's prowess with the technique has allowed him to alter the perception of time with ease within the illusion to make it seem to last for days when in fact it only lasts a few seconds. This allows him to torture the target for what seems like days on end, causing psychological trauma that will incapacitate them for a considerable period of time. Nagato's use of Tsukuyomi typically features a red moon casting a red light throughout the illusion with a cloudy atmosphere, giving the background a blood-red appearance while the victim within the illusion is in depicted in an inverted grey scale.”
NO ILLUSIONS THAT POWERFUL ARE ALLOWED, remove this
“Izanagi: Izanagi is the only current ability Nagato can use without using his Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan, though it suffers from much worse downsides than any other ability he has. This technique is capable of turning injuries and even death inflicted upon the user into mere illusions. Whenever the user receives a fatal injury, he or she automatically fades away as though they were an illusion all along and then returns back to reality; physically real and unscathed. Though, this technically isnt an illusion, as it has to do with removing ones body from existence and then reforming it a second or two later. This only lasts 5 posts, and only works on moderate to fatal injuries, and that is when its effects take place, allowing him to completely cancel out damage. He can choose to reform his body anywhere he wants to within 50 feet of the initial effect. Now, for the downsides. After the 5 consecutive posts are up, Nagato loses eyesight in one of his eyes, severely crippling his battle capabilities, while also losing a large portion of energy and feeling a good amount of pain as well, due to it being one of his stronger EMS abilities.”
The effect lasts too long, this kind of power needs to be short term, around 2 posts, since you ESCAPING death either nerf it, or remove it
“Amaterasu: The jet-black flames of the Amaterasu, said to be the fires from hell that are as hot as the sun, ignite at the focus of the user's vision. The flames are capable of burning through anything in their path, even smothering regular fire techniques with ease. Amaterasu is said to never stop burning; even when whatever is caught by the Amaterasu is completely reduced to ash or destroyed, it can still continue burning for seven days and seven nights. It cannot be extinguished with water or any other normal methods, and for the most part, is inextinguishable. However, the flames burn fairly slowly, allowing anyone struck by Amaterasu an opportunity to remove whatever clothing or body parts have been caught ablaze. “
Nerf this, i know its slow, but add a cost to this, how much can he summon at once?
“Wood Release: Wood Clone Technique: A clone that is created by altering the user's own cells with reitsu. It has more endurance than normal clones and doesn't disappear when hit by the enemies' attacks. Moreover, since it has the ability to merge with plants and trees, it is also great for reconnaissance missions. They have the ability to travel far distances from the user and are able to communicate with the original. The clone is made up of the user's own cells, transformed into vegetation. Because of this, when it is changed into a seed and ingested into the body or left on a target, it can be used as a transmission device of sorts. The user can use these to track their target as the seeds respond to their energy only. This and all other uses make this technique extremely convenient and, according to Nagato, a perfect clone technique that only he, with his Sharingan, was able to see through.”
You need to state how strong the clones are, and there must be other methods to see though the clones. and how many clones at once
“Wood Release Secret Technique: Nativity of a World of Trees: The user forces trees to grow on any surface, easily creating a dense forest anywhere they choose. A small plant can grow into a forest in an instant. By generating chakra, the user manoeuvres it as they see fit for attack and defence; and furthermore, this omnipotent technique even allows them to capture the enemy at the same time. With their tremendous life force, the trees can pierce through earthen walls, and extend their branches at their prey in an instant. Even stating that Konohagakure wouldn't have been established without this technique wouldn't be an exaggeration.”
Oh hi leaf village. just add a drain and how many times he can use this form.
“Wood Release: Advent of a World of Flowering Trees: Taking advantage of the innate properties of Wood Release — to be able to force trees to grow on any surface in an instant — the user creates a dense forest of flowering trees. The pollen produced by these flowers is then released into the atmosphere and when inhaled, renders any afflicted target unconscious. With enough willpower, it is possible to regain consciousness and stop from going unconscious in the first place. However, in order to counter the technique fully, either the trees themselves must be destroyed completely or the target must continue to remain elevated above the dispersed pollen.”
Can you nerf this? how many times can he do this, nerf it till where it hinders the foe but doesn't knock them out till a certain number of post happen.
“Wood Release: Four-Pillar Prison Technique: The user converts energy into timber under the ground and makes it grow rapidly, while forming it into a wooden prison. The size of the prison is based on the user's imagination. From an insect cage to a great prison, one can make it into whatever they want by regulating the amount of chakra used. The timber itself is treated with a chakra coating, making its destruction extremely difficult. During war, it has the great ability to detain prisoners, but it can also be used as a disciplinary measure for quarrelling subordinates.”
hi charka. state ways to escape, or break this, how many times can he uses it per thread.
“Wood Release: Four-Pillar House Technique: By sending energy into the ground, the roots of the plants are converted into raw materials. This technique allows for a building to be constructed, by forcing accelerated growth. Just like with the Four-Pillar Prison Technique, the size and shape of the building are taken from the user's imagination or memories. By placing tags around the house, the user creates a barrier, making it impossible for the enemy to detect it and allowing the user to "camp" in peace.”
how much does this drain him. how many times, etc
“Meteorite Technique: Nagato weaves three hand seals simultaneously that activate a seal within his body, by doing so in conjunction with his Susanoo, in order to draw massive meteorites from the upper atmosphere down towards a specific location on the ground. As they descend in succession along the same trajectory, if one of these meteorites is stopped,the second collides with the first like an enormous hammer, breaking both apart and ensuring that they crash into their intended destination, causing an absolutely enormous amount of destruction. “
Remove this, too powerful, you have a lot of power already why do you even need this?
