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 as well as propel himself to increase his mobility.
Originally, this technique was named Abyssal Black Body (深淵闇躯,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.
