Pain has short spiky orange hair and possessed the Rinnegan. He bears two piercings (six in the Naruto series) on the side of his upper nose, one spike stud on each end of the bottom lip, three piercings on each wrist, at least one on his upper wrist. His face is also little pale. On his right thumb, he wears a purplish-gray Akatsuki ring that bore the kanji for "zero" (零, rei). He also wears the Akatsuki robes.
Pain believes himself to be a god and as such, becomes angered when others point out his mistakes, which includes ignoring the fact that he tripped and attacking Hidan for making a joke about it. He also seems to view pain as very important for growth and often encourages people to "know pain".
The Organization Named Akatsuki!
Episode 38In chapter 16 and episode 38, Pain arrived at the Akatsuki hideout with Konan where he introduced himself to the new recruit. Before he could announce his plan for their full-scale operation, a massive fight broke out between the members, causing the destruction of the base. In the anime episode of these events, Pain and the others gang up on Deidara who knew Lee was a spy.
In the Rock Lee Springtime of Youth Special Collaboration Chapter, Pain alongside Tobi, Deidara, Kisame, and Kakuzu attempted to steal the Naruto SD Powerful Shippuden Game from Naruto and Lee. The main reason being that they couldn’t afford to buy copies for all the members. They challenged Naruto and Lee to a game of Smash and Shield Rock, Paper, Scissors. Pain played against Naruto in the third round of the game and lost when Naruto used his Nine-Tails Chakra Mode. The Akatsuki eventually managed to buy copies of the game for the members anyway.
Part 1: The Final Battle

Akatsuki's Summer Vacation!!
In chapter 27 of the manga, the entire Akatsuki organization went on a summer vacation because Pain believed it could bestow unbelievable power. While on the vacation, Deidara attempted to split a watermelon with a stick but ended up hitting Pain in the butt. Pain had to use Shinra Tensei to get the stick out. Pain was later seen with Konan, Deidara, and Sasori playing a video game. Pain declared himself God and said he would defeat the game, losing instantly. Pain plays numerous more times making excuses for his losses, causing the others to leave. Pain later joins the rest of Akatsuki in a competition to see who can keep their sparkler lit the longest. Pain declares himself God again and declares that he will win. He again loses instantly. Deidara got in a fight with Tobi during the competition causing the winner to be unclear. The Akatsuki have a different kind of sparkler competition with their jutsu, destroying the beach. Pain and the rest of Akatsuki noticed their skin had become darker and believed it was a sign of them becoming more powerful like Pain intended. They actually just got sunburned.
Pain possesses the Rinnegan, which gives him access to numerous powerful jutsu. So far the only technique he has been shown using in the series is the Shinra Tensei which allows him to repel certain things.
