Chakra. The Preta Path has 10 chakra points which she can expend. All chakra points are regained at the end of a long rest.

Ninja Speed. The Preta Path can take the dash, dodge, and disengage actions as a bonus action, and can move along vertical surfaces.

Endurance. When the Preta Path is targeted by an effect that allows him to make a Constitution saving throw to take half damage on a success, he takes no damage on a success and half damage on a failure.

Rinne Six Paths. The Preta Path has a shared field of vision with the other Paths of Pain. Each path can only be killed by taking four times as much damage as chakra points it has from a single source, or if the receiver inside it is destroyed. Creatures must succeed a DC 19 Arcana or Medicine check as an action to find and be able to attack their receiver. If a path gains chakra points or dies, its chakra points are divided evenly among any remaining paths.

Chakra Sense. When the Preta Path takes the search action, he may also attempt a DC 13 Perception check to locate living creatures and magical effects within 60 feet. He sees a faint outline around the detected chakra source and what school of magic or chakra nature the magical effect was created from, or one that the creature can use if any, can be discerned by him. This effect can penetrate most barriers, but is blocked by 5 feet of stone, 5 inches of common metal, 1 inch of lead, or 15 feet of wood or dirt.


Multiattack. The Preta Path makes 3 attacks with his unarmed strike or kunai attacks.

Unarmed Strike. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 12 (4d4 + 2) magical bludgeoning damage.

Kunai (0-3 Chakra). Ranged Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, range 20/60 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (1d4 + 2) slashing damage. The Preta Path may make 1 additional attack for every additional chakra point spent.

Basic Ninjutsu Technique (1 Chakra). As a bonus action, the Preta Path can move across liquid surfaces as if they were solid. If she is submerged, she rises to the surface of the liquid at a rate of 60 feet per round.

Transformation (1+ Chakra). The Preta Path becomes identical to a person, creature or non-magical object she has a complete visual image of. This can not be a light source, armor, tool, or vehicle, and she can not recreate a magical effect. Creatures must make a DC 19 Investigation check realize that she is transformed. If the creature saw her performing the jutsu, they automatically succeed. This does not change statistics.

Body Flicker (3 Chakra). The Preta Path's movement speed doubles, and her movement does not provoke attacks of opportunity.

Chakra Detection. As a bonus action, the Preta Path attempts an Arcana check (DC 10 + the target's bonus to Deception) to learn how many spell slots, Ki points, chakra points, and other resources or charges that a creature has. The DC to discover hit points in this manner is 10 + the target's Constitution Modifier.

Seal Jutsu Absorption (3+ Chakra).One creature within 5 ft. must succeed a DC 19 Constitution saving throw. On a failure, their total chakra points are reduced by 12 (2d6 + 5), and the Preta Path regains a number of chakra points equal to the amount absorbed.


Substitution (3+ Chakra). When the Preta Path is hit by an attack and would take damage, he decreases the damage by 21 (1d10 + 16) and teleports up to 15 ft. in any direction to an unoccupied space, during which he takes the Hide action. A generic object is left in his place and he takes any remaining damage from that attack. The Preta Path can add reduce this damage by an additional 6 (1d10) points per chakra point spent over the initial cost.

Seal Jutsu Absorption (3+ Chakra). When the Preta Path is targeted by a jutsu that is not Taijutsu, the jutsu's chakra is reduced by 10 (2d4 + 5), and he regains an equal amount of chakra reduced. If this would reduce the jutsu's chakra below its minimum cost, the jutsu fails, and the jutsu's caster regains the remaining chakra points. Otherwise, the jutsu loses any additional effects from increasing its cost for a number of chakra points equal to the number absorbed. If a jutsu's base cast has multiple projectiles (i.e. a single Lightning Ball), each projectile counts as a different jutsu with a cost equal to its base cost divided by the number of projectiles. The Preta Path may increase the number of chakra points absorbed by 2 (1d4) for every 2 additional chakra points spent.


During Jiraiya's travels, he met a wandering shinobi from the Hidden Grass Village who had lost his family to starvation due to leaving the farm to wage war. After trading ideas as fellow wanderers, they parted ways. Years later, the puppeteer was confronted by Pain, who sought another strong body. Becoming the Preta Path, Pain's third strongest path, the Preta Path fought the strongest of the Inuzuka clan during Pain's assault on the Hidden Leaf Village before being defeated by Naruto, who pumped him full of natural energy, turning him to stone.
