Rokudantobi (六段跳び), called Sextuple Step in English broadcasts, was a First Stage obstacle that was introduced in SASUKE 16 as the first obstacle. It was identical to Godantobi, with one step added to the right. Additionally, the steps were raised off of the ground, allowing the competitors had more room away from the water, but making the gap between each step wider than Godantobi. It was once replaced by Rope Glider in SASUKE 18 as part of the course's renewal, however, due to it resulting in five injuries in that tournament, Rokudantobi returned in the next tournament. It was replaced for good by Jūnidantobi in SASUKE 23.
A modified version of this obstacle called Quintuple Steps would later be used on almost all of SASUKE's international formats, such as American Ninja Warrior, Ninja Warrior UK, Australian Ninja Warrior, and SASUKE Ninja Warrior Indonesia, except the steps were much wider.
