Black Receivers, created and used by those who possess the Rinnegan,[1] act as high-frequency chakra demodulators, allowing users to transmit their chakra into these receivers, and by extension, into those whom the receivers have been embedded in.[2] Chakra can be transmitted across vast distances, though for best results the user should be nearby and at a high elevation.[3] Black receivers disintegrate if their creator is killed or incapacitated.[4][5]


The exact source of the black receivers is unclear, having been seen produced through various means:


Disruption Blade Effect

The user, represented by disembodied Rinnegan, transmits into a target.

Users can produce black receivers in various shapes and sizes to fit the situation.[16] The most frequently seen usage has been as part of the Six Paths of Pain, where the user embeds up to six corpses with chakra receivers, which can optionally be fashioned into body piercings, in order to reanimate and take full control of them. The user is then able to perform jutsu through the bodies and shares their field of vision.[17] Creatures summoned through the Animal Path also have these body piercings, suggesting a similar manner of control. The receivers implanted in Obito's Six Paths of Pain doubled as a means of temporarily binding the chakra of the tailed beasts sealed in the Demonic Statue to the bodies, granting them the abilities of a jinchūriki.[18]

Black receivers can be employed offensively, wielded from the hands similar to swords. By stabbing a target with these receivers the user can transmit their chakra into them, hindering their movements if pierced with only one receiver,[16] and completely paralysing them if pierced with multiple.[19] Simple contact with the receivers can apparently incur the same debilitations, an effect only other Rinnegan users are immune to.[20] If the user is able to create a strong enough transmission into a target, they can potentially control the target's movements, though it is possible for the target to resist this effect provided their own chakra is powerful enough.[21]

Chakra Receiver stakes

Chains emanating from black receivers.

Offensively employing receivers through the Six Paths of Pain carries a risk to the user, as sensor types can trace the transferred chakra back to the user when pierced with one.[22] In an effect similar to that of the Truth-Seeking Balls, black receivers appear to cause permanent damage to reincarnated individuals, with their bodies being unable to repair the damage until the receivers are removed.[23][24] Obito is shown employing black receivers fashioned into giant stakes as projectiles, ejecting them from Kamui's dimension to pierce and pin targets.[25] He can then transmit chakra chains into the receivers to further strengthen the binding.[26]
