Dark Release: Swallowing Void is a powerful dark release technique that allows the user to subjugate a number of enemies into a pool of darkness. After the hand signs are made a large pool of dark release chakra will appear beneath the target(s) and begin to pull them into an abyss of darkness. As they are being pulled in, the dark chakra will begin to spread up the target's person to strengthen the hold, because it is dark release chakra the target's chakra will also begin to be slowly siphoned into the void. If a target is fully subjugated by the abyss they will not be able to escape the dark void that they will now be in and they will slowly be broken apart until nothing remains.
This technique is rather slow when a large number of enemies or a large object is being subjugated. If the target also has a strong will and a high level of chakra they can also break apart from being subjugated as long as they are not already in the void. This technique also requires quite a bit of chakra as well.
