Sleep Powder is a useful status attack, designed to sedate and force the target to sleep.


The user shakes their arms and/or body, unleashing a powder, typically stated as blue, tan or indigo with a shine to it's appearance, and then unleashes it towards the opponent. In some cases, due to the powder's notorious spread of area, the user may launch the powder sealed within a seed above the opponent, before triggering the seed to break, leaving the powder to be inhaled by the target.

When inhaled, the powder acts as a sedative, instantly sending the target to sleep, as long as they do not have a genetic ability preventing sleep while the body has adrenaline above a certain point. It also has a similar effect, although slower, when absorbed into the body via skin contact.

However, as previously stated, the technique suffers from poor accuracy and spreading, although that makes it effective against a group. It also suffers from elemental weaknesses - when set alight, the powder burns at such a rapid rate, it is compared to an explosion, while a Wind-user can blow the powder back at the user's side, forcing them to sleep instead.

Due to it's ability to sedate almost any foe, but considering it's weaknesses, the technique bears a D-rank.
