Six Paths (六道, Rikudō) is a term used throughout the Naruto storyline. Its deeper meaning is currently unknown. There also seems to be no apparent connection between some of the instances this term is used. It's noticeable that many of those instances are related to the Rinnegan – interestingly, the Rinnegan itself is referred to as the "Eye of the Six Paths" (六道の眼, Rikudō no Me).[1] The term has been used in the following contexts:
