The Sound Four summons each of their respective summons to barricade their opponents. While the Triple Rashōmon makes escape difficult, the Doki and Earth Prison Golem attack from the front, while Kyodaigumo attacks from above.


  • Shijū (四獣) refers to the four beasts of Chinese mythology. It may also be a reference to the four gods who rule over the four cardinal directions, similar to how each of the Sound Four members is associated with a cardinal direction.
