The members of the Sound Four stand at four directions around their target as they, in unison, perform this technique. They create a dark, dense fog high in the air that descends on the target, engulfing them and creating a powerful barrier that seals them off from all outside forces, even death. The Sound Four use this technique to counter the effects of the Mind Awakening Pill,[1] which kills those who ingest it in order to advance their cursed seal to its second level.[2] The Dark Sealing Method can be used to contain the fog within a confined space, such as a coffin.[3]
