During his long journey, Naruto trained his mind and body and learned many powerful techniques.
But of all the powers Naruto has demonstrated over the years, there is hardly a power as powerful as the Six Paths Sage Mode he achieved during the Fourth World Ninja War. But what exactly is this power?
How to Master the Sage Mode?
In order to master this art, it is necessary to train day and night in hidden places near hermit animals (for example, on Mt. Myoboku).
The essence of the training is concentration and balancing of the chakra, for example, long sit-ups on a thin plank over sharp stone peaks. Also, oil is particularly helpful in this endeavor, helping to absorb the chakra more intensely.
One who has entered the Sage Mode also undergoes external changes, mostly taking on the traits of those animals from whom he was trained. The only known people to have reached this level of skill are Uzumaki Naruto, Jiraiya, Senju Hashirama and Yakushi Kabuto.
What is Six Ways Sage Mode in Naruto Shippuden?
The power of Naruto’s Six Ways Sage Mode came after it fell into the hands of Madara Uchiha. After Kurama was extracted from Naruto’s body, he was on the verge of death, but eventually encountered the spirit of Hagoromo Otsutsuki, who transmitted half of the Sage’s power.
When Naruto awoke, he had access to the Sage Mode of the Six Ways.
In other words, Six Ways Sage Mode is the power that Hagoromo gave to Naruto, and it is very similar to Sage Mode in that it uses natural energy or senjutsu.
The big difference, however, is that Naruto’s abilities can be used on a much larger scale.
To make this transformation even stronger, Naruto uses the Kurama Chakra Mode, which gives a yellow aura to the Six Ways Sage Mode.
How strong is the Six Ways Sage mode in Naruto Shippuden?
In this mode, Naruto uses the powers of Six Ways and the Paths of Yang, gaining access to the 9 Balls of Truth Search, which can negate almost any ninjutsu against him. They also act offensively, as their touch can destroy anyone.
Six Ways Sage Mode put Naruto on the same level as Madara Uchiha, and he could also fight Kaguya Otsutsuki, who was even stronger than Madara, and later Naruto also faced Sasuke Uchiha.
Thus, Sage Mode is extremely effective and was his biggest advantage until Boruto introduced Barion Mode.
