Black Abyss (深淵 (ブラック) (アン) () Burakku Anku?) is an Ultimate Move performed by Fumikage Tokoyami using his Dark Shadow Quirk.


Fumikage orders Dark Shadow to envelop his body. Dark Shadow covers the upper half of Fumikage's body and protects him like a suit of armor. This compensates for Fumikage's weaknesses at close range. By expanding the claws that envelop his hands, Fumikage can attack or defend from a distance[1] as well as propel himself to increase his mobility[2].

Originally, this technique was named Abyssal Black Body ( (しん) (えん) (あん) () Shin'en Anku?), but was amended in favor of a more pronouncable name. It was developed during Class 1-A's training in Gym Gamma.[3]
