Demon's Embrace is an unblockable grab type move that has a life-steal property, and benefits from Shugoki's passive hyperarmour. Shugoki stops guarding before charging towards his enemy. This move has a long startup animation, but can be mistaken for simply releasing guard. If Shugoki makes front on contact with his opponent, regardless of guarding or parry attempts, he will lift his opponent above his head and crush them, at this point there is nothing they can do until they land. Although Shugoki cannot true combo from this move, it has strong Okizeme, as they are left knocked down very close to him so that he may follow up how he pleases and force his opponent on the defence immediately.
