The '''Dead Demon Consuming Seal''' is a seal which invokes the power of a spectral entity known as the {{translation|'''[[Wikipedia:Shinigami|Shinigami]]'''|死神|lit meaning=death god|engtv=Reaper}} that can only be seen when it grasps one's soul. Once called upon, the Shinigami hovers behind the user and wraps its left arm with prayer beads, uttering some unintelligible chanting, and after some time a [[cursed seal]] appears on its arm. The soul of the summoner is then partially separated from the body and restrained by the Shinigami's hair as it thrusts its arm into the user's chest to grab the soul of its target. At the user's command, the Shinigami then performs the sealing by dragging the target's soul into the user whose stomach is branded with the seal's mark. However, the sealing is double-edged as the user's soul is devoured by the Shinigami along with the target's, both souls trapped for all eternity within the fiend's stomach.

Users

The Dead Demon Consuming Seal is a seal developed by the Uzumaki clan to call upon the power of the Shinigami.[2]

Usage Edit

After the hand seals are performed, the user's soul is partly separated from their body and suspended behind them. Behind their soul appears the Shinigami, which restrains their soul with its hair. Only the summoner is able to see the Shinigami at this point. Eventually, the Shinigami wraps its left arm with prayer beads and chants unintelligibly until a cursed seal appears on its arm. It then drives its arm into the summoner's soul, thus allowing the summoner to call upon the Shinigami to seal a target. When Hiruzen performs it, he is required to get close to his target in order to initiate the seal.[3] When Minato performs it, he is able to remain at a distance.[4] The Shinigami's arm emerges from the summoner's body and grasps the soul of the target, enabling the target to see the Shinigami as well.

Once the target's soul is grasped, the summoner can remove the target's soul and seal it into their own body. Hiruzen is able to seal multiple souls through combination with the Shadow Clone Technique. However, the sealing is not necessarily complete nor automatic. When Hiruzen uses it on Orochimaru, he must rely on his own physical strength to extract Orochimaru's soul. Because he lacks the strength to fully do that, he opts instead to only seal Orochimaru's arms, accomplished by having the Shinigami cut off the arms of Orochimaru's soul; this paralyses his arms and prevents him from performing hand seals and by extension most ninjutsu.[5] When Minato uses it, he seals only the Nine-Tails' yin chakra, leaving its yang chakra alone;[6] this sealing of its yin chakra into himself makes him its jinchūriki.

After the sealing is performed, a mark appears on the summoner's stomach that is similar in appearance to the Eight Trigrams Sealing Style. For a few moments afterwards the summoner can continue moving and speaking, allowing them to finish any lingering business they may have. Shortly afterwards the Shinigami will consume their soul and the soul of their target(s), ending their life. The souls of those trapped within the Shinigami's stomach cannot enter the Pure Land and are destined to fight with their victims for all eternity.[7]

Dead Demon Consuming Seal - Release

Souls being released from the Shinigami's stomach.

The only method of releasing a soul from the Shinigami's stomach is to wear the Shinigami Mask, allowing the wearer to be possessed by the Shinigami. By then slicing open their own stomach, the Shinigami will do the same, releasing the souls trapped there. Under normal circumstances, the medium will die from the injury.[8]

Trivia Edit

  • When Orochimaru's arms are sealed, they begin to experience necrosis and cause him increasing amounts of physical pain. He is able to escape the pain and decay by switching bodies, but he remains unable to make full use of his arms.[9]
  • During his discussion with Kushina on how to deal with the Nine-Tails, Minato stated: "The fūinjutsu I — not being a jinchūriki — am able to use is… the Shiki Fūjin!" (「人柱力なでいオレができる封印術は屍鬼封尽!」, "Jinchūriki na denai ore ga dekiru fūinjutsu wa Shiki Fūjin!") What he meant by this is unclear as the Hokage did not elaborate.[6]
  • In the manga and anime, Hiruzen calls this technique "Sealing Technique: Dead Demon Consuming Seal" (封印術・屍鬼封尽, Fūinjutsu: Shiki Fūjin). The technique's databook entry drops the "Sealing Technique" part.
