Assassination-Style: Demon's Cut is an technique of the Assassination Technique that borrows from the principles of the Poison Mist to allow the user to flood the opponent's Chakra Pathway System with a special poison.
When using the technique chakra is channeled to the blade of the shinobi's sword where it is kneaded into a vareity of special chemical substances. The shinobi channels chakra into the chemical substances to increase the chemical substance's potency. When the user strikes the target the special chemical substances is released into the opponent's Chakra Pathway System to make the chakra that lies there deadly to its own user. How potent the poison initially is varies depending on the skill of the shinobi. A very skilled user like Akari Murakami can have the poison kill a target within a couple of short minutes.
On top of being deadly, the poison absorbs the opponent's chakra continuously starting the moment they use their first technique after being hit to tire them down and weaken their immune system. It starts slow, but the speed increases the more the target uses their chakra and high ranked techniques increase the speed even more. The poison uses the absorbed chakra to increase its own potency so the more an opponent uses chakra the faster the poison will kill them and the more susceptible to the poison they become.
