The Animal Path (畜生道, Chikushōdō) grants the user the ability to summon various creatures.

Abilities

The Animal Path's main abilities revolved around summoning various animals and creatures to aid it in battle. Each creature served a different purpose in battle, much like every Path of Pain was also different from the others. Each animal summon also has the Rinnegan and as such Nagato is able to see through their eyes as well.[1] Each animal had various body piercings as well, suggesting that they too were under his control.

Tactics wise, the Path's primary role in battle appeared to be overwhelming multiple opponents with its summons. In addition to that, both bodies used for this Path were of a smaller stature than the other five, which, coupled with Pain's tendency to use his Asura Path to throw the second Animal Path in order to reach far off locations and infiltrate Konoha, as well as Pain's decision to first confront Jiraiya with the first Animal Path body, suggests that it acted as both a scout, as well as a way for Pain to move around the battlefield quickly through summons. Worthy of note, the Animal Path requires no blood sacrifice or hand seals when summoning creatures, but uses hand seals to summon the other Paths. It can summon Konan as well. The second Path possessed some ability with taijutsu, able to clash with Naruto Uzumaki for a short time despite him being in Sage Mode.

Influences

Buddhists believe in a realm of existence of the non-human animals on Earth, an unhappy plane of rebirth which revolves around ignorance, instinct, survival of the fittest, and servitude to humans.
