Nagato – Sage of the Six Paths

The Deva Path (天道, Tendō) grants the user the ability to manipulate attractive and repulsive forces with objects and people. These gravity manipulating techniques, however, cannot be performed in rapid succession; the amount of time required to recharge after use varies depending on the scale of the technique used. The Deva Path also grants another ability: Chibaku Tensei which allows the user to create a huge makeshift terrestrial body from all the surrounding matter that is attracted to a black sphere released by this technique.

Though he used the powers of the Deva Path prior to being crippled, Nagato spent the remainder of his life channeling the power through the corpse of his deceased friend Yahiko, using him as the face of his Pain alias. In the anime, through Pain, Nagato demonstrated the ability to levitate in midair prior to levelling Konoha and during his battle against Naruto in his six-tailed state.
