Nagato (長門, Nagato) was a shinobi of Amegakure and descendant of the Uzumaki clan Forming the Akatsuki along with his good friends (and fellow war orphans) Yahiko and Konan, Nagato imagined bringing peace to the violent shinobi world. However, following Yahiko’s death, Nagato embraced the alias of Pain (ペイン, Pein) and, along with Konan, started leading a brand-new Akatsuki; one that would force the world into peace utilizing any ways necessary.
Nagato coped with his parents: Fusō and Ise on the outskirts of Amegakure When he was really young, Madara Uchiha secretly transplanted his Rinnegan into Nagato without his or his moms and dads’ understanding. At some point later on, during the Second Shinobi World War, Nagato and his parents nestled in their home to prevent the combating going on around them. One day, 2 Konoha shinobi burglarized their home looking for food and Nagato and his parents tried to slip out undetected. When they were discovered, his parents attacked the shinobi so that Nagato might escape. The Konoha ninja killed his moms and dads in self-defence and, upon understanding they were just civilians, tried apologising to Nagato. Overcome with sorrow, Nagato used Madara’s Rinnegan for the very first time to kill them and avenge his moms and dads.
The orphans ask the Sannin to teach them ninjutsu.
After burying his parents, Nagato, now an orphan, was required to leave house and start roaming searching for food and shelter. With resources scare due to the continuous war, no one he fulfilled would assist him till Nagato, who had collapsed from hunger, was discovered by
Konan and Yahiko, orphans like himself. They banded together, acquired food to endure through any methods, and shared imagine a future where they supervised and might utilize their power to remove war. Yahiko was particularly passionate about this point, which motivated Nagato to adopt the very same goal. In order to achieve this, the three would need to become ninja. With couple of choices to select from, they approached Konoha’s Legendary Sannin and asked to be taught ninjutsu Orochimaru offered to kill them in order to end their suffering, but Jiraiya, guilty over his involvement in the war, offered to teach them how to watch out for themselves.
Jiraiya discovered a location for them to live and taught them how to fish, but he would not teach them ninjutsu. While the orphans were out one day, they were discovered and assaulted by an Iwagakure chūnin Fearing for his buddies’ lives, Nagato used his Rinnegan to eliminate the Iwa-nin. When Jiraiya showed up on the scene to assist them, he observed Nagato’s eyes for the very first time and was advised of the legends of the Sage of the Six Courses, the original holder of the Rinnegan. Since of this, Jiraiya altered his mind and started teaching them ninjutsu. Nagato was remorseful for killing the Iwa-nin, but Jiraiya encouraged him that often violence and individual pain was required to secure others. In time he even shared his belief that Nagato was the Sage of the Six Paths’ reincarnation which, like the initial Sage, Nagato would use his Rinnegan to introduce a world of peace
Nagato summons the Statue for the very first time.
Jiraiya trained the orphans for three years. Due to the fact that of his Rinnegan, Nagato easily mastered everything he was taught.
 Once they were able to beat among his shadow clones in a battle, Jiraiya chose they were all set to forge out by themselves and he went back to Konoha, positive they would bring reform to the country. The 3 formed an organisation they called Akatsuki, with Yahiko as its leader, and began promoting an end to war. Their message showed popular and they gathered lots of fans;-LRB-  even Jiraiya would sometimes hear news of their exploits. Throughout the 3rd Shinobi World War, they were approached by a disguised Obito Uchiha Introducing himself as Madara Uchiha, he provided to help them in their pursuits and show Nagato how to unlock the full capacity of his Rinnegan. Yahiko refused the deal, presuming Tobi only meant to utilize them.
Nagato injured following his fight with Hanzō.
Throughout their mission for peace, Akatsuki’s ranks swelled and became understood throughout Amegakure, so much so that
Hanzō of the Salamander, the town’s leader, began to feel Akatsuki threatened his guideline. He approached Akatsuki, providing to work together with them to help negotiate with the other warring villages. The next day, at a conference to settle the arrangement, Yahiko and Nagato were ambushed by Hanzō and his males, with assistance from Konoha’s Danzō Shimura Using Konan as a captive, Hanzō threatened to eliminate her if Nagato did not eliminate Yahiko. Unwilling to let Nagato have that on his conscience, Yahiko impaled himself on Nagato’s kunai, utilizing his passing away breath to state his faith that Nagato would change the world. Infuriated by Yahiko’s death, Nagato took Konan back from Hanzō, though his legs were badly harmed while doing so. He then summoned the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path and, upon relating to it, used it to slaughter Hanzō’s males, though Hanzō himself left. Afterwards, Nagato severed his ties with Amegakure by slashing the town’s symbol on his forehead protector, no longer wanting to be connected with Hanzō’s village.
Now maimed, Nagato turns Yahiko’s body into the Deva Path.
Yahiko’s death ultimately convinced Nagato that his viewpoints about accomplishing peace were foolish; the world would never ever voluntarily end the cycle of death and hatred it had actually run on for so long. Only through direct experience of war and all the losses and agonies it brought could anyone truly desire peace. Planning to personally bring that level of misery to the world, Nagato took on the name of “Discomfort”. As the damage he had actually gotten from Hanzō’s attack and the relate to the Demonic Statue left him frail and immobile, Nagato created the
Six Courses of Pain out of corpses that he controlled remotely. For the Deva Path he utilized Yahiko’s body– still wanting him to lead the organisation in spirit– and for the other 5 he utilized the remains of other miscellaneous shinobi that, without his knowing it, had fulfilled Jiraiya when they lived. Pain started leading Akatsuki in a new instructions, secretly accepting Obito’s earlier offer of support. Akatsuki composed itself with S-rank missing-nin and started providing its services as a mercenary group to ninja villages, making the money required to fund its long-term plans.
Pain facing Hanzō.
Years later on and still loyal to his own variation of Amegakure, Discomfort and Konan began a civil war in the town to overthrow Hanzō.
 Much of the village rallied behind Pain, thinking him to be a god since of his tremendous power. The Six Courses of Pain ultimately cornered Hanzō and killed him and all his guards, earning control of the town, however not before revealing his disgust with how Hanzō had fallen from the male he admired and the reality he can’t even understand how he lost to Nagato. In order to prevent anybody from challenging him, Pain proceeded to eliminate everybody even from another location linked to Hanzō, from members of his household to distant associates. Because of Amegakure’s currently secretive nature, news of Hanzō’s death never made it beyond Amegakure and the village was thought to still be divided by the civil war. Discomfort welcomed the villagers’ concept of him being God and solitarily crushing residues devoted to Hanzō whenever they appeared. Every Sunday, Nagato would stop the constant rain in Ame as a tribute to Yahiko. Personality
Nagato was a sensitive child, vulnerable to weeping over the sufferings of himself and others. When he fulfilled Yahiko he attempted to break this habit by following Yahiko’s viewpoint that crying wouldn’t change anything, but the attempt was not successful. Jiraiya later explained to him that his level of sensitivity was really a strength, as it allowed him to comprehend pain better and, in turn, be kinder to others. This resonated with Nagato and caused him to realise that he wanted to handle all of his good friends’ pain so that they would not have to. It likewise finally succeeded in ending his crying; when Jiraiya left their group it was Yahiko who cried to see him go, while Nagato only thanked him for all the guidance he ‘d supplied.
In one type or another, Nagato invested his entire life putting the needs of others prior to his own: his primary motivation for ending up being a ninja in the very first location was so that he might secure Yahiko and Konan; heed his role in the initial Akatsuki as a powerful tool meant to assist Yahiko bring peace to their country; as leader of his own variation of Akatsuki, he felt it was his responsibility to save the world from itself, causing pains of such magnitude that nobody would ever harm anyone else ever once again. While this shows a growing self-importance Nagato regarded himself with, it was motivated by the similarly growing esteem others concerned him with due to his Rinnegan: Jiraiya thought he was the reincarnation of the Sage of the 6 Courses; Yahiko and the rest of Akatsuki thought he was the “ Saviour of the World“; the villagers of Amegakure thought him “God”.
As a child that grew up in the middle of other countries’ wars, Nagato did not like killing and was frightened by his early acts of violence versus those who had actually harmed his loved ones. He supported Yahiko’s Akatsuki since it wished to end the wars and deaths that he hated a lot. After Yahiko’s death, Nagato jeopardized his hostility to eliminating to a big level, thinking the deaths of specific individuals and even hundreds at a time might be justified if it served a higher and/or long-lasting purpose. However Nagato remains really clear in this distinction, as he reveals grace to those happy to comply with him and dissuades others from defying him because it will only force him to strike them down. Minato Namikaze thinks that, at some time along the method, Nagato’s were corrupted and subsequently controlled by Tobi.
In spite of the variety of individual modifications Nagato went through throughout his life, he constantly remained basically kind and respectful. With his fellow members of Akatsuki, he grieves those who pass away in the pursuit of Akatsuki’s objectives and name-calling amongst peers. He extends similar courtesies to his challengers, being honoured to satisfy one so strong as Kakashi Hatake, despite likewise being figured out to eliminate Kakashi because that extremely same strength would inevitably hinder Akatsuki’s strategies. For all his compassion, Nagato has a particular prejudice versus Konoha due to the fact that its ninja have actually contributed in a number of his life’s disasters. He attempted to change this opinion because of Jiraiya’s favorable influence, however eventually decided that Konoha’s successes were predicated on the misfortunes of others.
Despite his conviction in Akatsuki’s goals, Nagato is re-convinced of his previous pacifism by Naruto Uzumaki, who thinks the struggle for peace is worth any individual cost. He is humbled by Naruto’s, and goes froming himself as a god toing himself as the failed middle volume of a trilogy begun by Jiraiya and ended with Naruto. Look:
Nagato as a kid.
Nagato’s full attire after being reincarnated.
Nagato had pale white skin with straight red hair, a sign of his
Uzumaki heritage. When he was very young, his hair covered his eyes, preventing his Rinnegan from being visible. When he started training to be a ninja he parted his hair so that just his ideal eye was covered. After he performs Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique his hair turns white as a side-effect of the jutsu, and it remains white after he is reincarnated His hair ends up being red once again when he soaks up a few of the Eight-Tails‘ chakra Relating to the Demonic Statue of the Outer Course left a variety of black receivers ingrained in his back and triggered his body to end up being very emaciated, limiting his mobility. For this reason he invests most of his adult life in a mechanical walker from which he manages the Six Paths of Discomfort He also does not personally wear any of the common Akatsuki clothes, having his Courses use it instead.
Nagato utilizing the Six Paths Technique to overwhelm Naruto and Killer B.
Nagato’s position as the leader of Akatsuki was well-deserved, being its greatest member and, as Pain, being called unsurpassable at various points by Konan, Fukasaku, Tobi, and Zetsu Jiraiya was frightened by news that Discomfort eliminated Hanzō by himself, as not even the combined Sannin could defeat Hanzō. Kabuto Yakushi also regarded Nagato (with impeded movement) as his second greatest reincarnated shinobi, behind only Madara Uchiha Certainly, it took the combined efforts of Itachi Uchiha(an S-rank prodigy of the Uchiha clan), Killer B(an ideal jinchūriki), and Naruto Uzumaki(a nearly-perfect jinchūriki) to successfully defeat Nagato.
Chakra and Physical Expertise
Nagato exerts his chakra through the Deva Path.
As a descendant of the Uzumaki clan, Nagato’s chakra was naturally resistant. His real chakra reserves were unusually huge, adequate that he could perform various, chakra-taxing strategies all in the exact same day. Among the 5th Hokage‘s Anbu bodyguards associated this chakra supply to his Rinnegan Nagato might likewise constantly change the nature of his chakra to prevent him from being found by sensing units
Following his very first fight with Hanzō, Nagato’s legs were terribly damaged and his body was left frail. This limited his mobility for the rest of his life and rendered his initial body mainly defenceless. He regained a few of his former mobility after being reincarnated and taking a few of the Eight-Tails‘ chakra. When not handicapped, Nagato might rapidly walk around a battleground, closing the space between himself and his challengers quickly enough to force them to pull away.
Throughout his training with Jiraiya, Nagato mastered every technique he was taught, covering many styles, all of the standard nature improvements, and Yang Release, accomplishments exceptionally rare even for adults, not to mention 10 year-olds. Much of the miscellaneous techniques he was seen performing were utilized to facilitate Akatsuki’s conferences, such as allowing members to fulfill astrally across great distances, securing the site of their conferences, and distracting opposing forces Among the more notable exceptions to this was the Rain Tiger at Will Technique, which allowed him to use rainfall to keep an eye on everyone moving within Amegakure.
Nagato might also determine the area of others throughout great distances, even permeating beyond barriers set up for the express function of blocking detection.
Nagato’s skill in numerous kinds of ninjutsu was due in large part to his Rinnegan Though he was not the eyes’ initial owner, being an Uzumaki enabled Nagato to wield both eyes without disadvantages; his skill was fantastic adequate to earn acknowledgment as the “Third 6 Courses” (三人目の六道, Sanninme no Rikudō).
The best advantage of the Rinnegan was the gain access to it provided Nagato to all of the 6 Paths Strategies: the gravitational powers of the Deva Path; the menagerie of summons available to the Animal Path; the endless absorptive potential of the Preta Course; the control over others’ souls with the Human Course; the different alternatives of mechanisation in the Asura Path; access to the King of Hell through the Naraka Path Due to the fact that of the restrictions of his real body, Nagato had few chances to utilize any of these capabilities directly. When the opportunity arose, though, he could shift in between the different Paths seamlessly and immediately, performing the lots of abilities on a level he wasn’t efficient in when using them through others.
The one branch of 6 Paths Strategies that Nagato scheduled for himself was that of the External Path As the Outer Path, Nagato could summon and manage the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path, produce black receivers into which he can transport his chakra, and use the Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique to restore the dead.
Six Paths of Discomfort
The 6 Courses of Discomfort.
With the Outer Course, Nagato might form what he calls his “ 6 Courses of Pain“. By embedding black receivers throughout the bodies of 6 remains– arranged to resemble body piercings– Nagato had the ability to manage all of them remotely as though they were his own. He could control the Paths throughout country miles, however for more chakra-demanding methods, it was needed for the Path to initially be brought better to his position. An alternative to this was cutting off control of five of the Paths and focusing all of his chakra into one. The Paths can be used to respond to dangers in mere seconds and, because they are remains, the bodies are unfazed by all but the most debilitating kinds of damage.
In theory, each of the Six Paths of Pain might be utilized to perform any technique that Nagato himself was capable of. In practice, nevertheless, he limited each body to one branch of the 6 Paths Techniques, the exception being the Deva Path through which he carried out a variety of miscellaneous jutsu. Each Course served a specific purpose, be it offending, defensive, reconnaissance or repair work. None of the Paths specifically specialised in taijutsu, however all were able to keep up throughout hand-to-hand battle with even the most practised challenger. He considered all six Paths to be part of the Discomfort identity he offered himself, Nagato still regarded them as different entities from himself, referring to them by whichever Path they embody.
Nagato compromising one Path in order to conserve another.
Although the Six Courses were individually strong, they were at their most powerful when utilized together, with the simultaneous usage of all six being the main factor for Pain’s infamous invincibility. This was due to the fact that the 6 Paths, as well as the Animal Course’s summons and the King of Hell, share the same vision, enabling Nagato to collaborate their motions with maximum performance. They could assault from numerous angles and evade attacks they couldn’t have seen however that took place within another Path’s field of view. Each of the Paths had its own value in a battle– the Naraka Course’s capability to restore all the other Courses, making it the most important– and for that reason, Nagato would sacrifice other Paths to secure those further up the hierarchy.
Despite the benefits the 6 bodies gave him in a fight, Nagato attempted to restrict his use to as few bodies as possible to lower the possibility of anyone discovering the secret of how the 6 Paths of Discomfort work. When Konoha started to understand the idiosyncrasies of the ability, he destroyed the town in an effort to kill anybody who might know that none of the 6 Paths were the genuine him.
