  • Similar to the Ninja 2-hour ability Mijin Gakure.
  • Damage dealt is based on current HP, but appears to follow no set formula as yet determined.
  • Cannot inflict more damage than the user's current HP, effectively making the upper bound for this spell the user's max HP.
  • Area of Effect is radial around the caster.
  • When cast, current HP is reduced to 1 and the user is inflicted with weakness for 300 seconds (5 minutes).
  • This spell does not K.O. its user, but inflicts the same weakness effect as if it had. No experience points are lost from casting this spell, unless the user is in turn defeated after the attack has executed.
