Like Ahman, I would say that yonkyo uses both mechanical and pain compliance, but another vital ingredient is balance. If you don't get uke's balance, most likely an uke your own size or bigger will resist the mechanical forces and ignore the pain. Another is sente - if you don't give uke time to brace himself and resist, yonkyo will work a lot better.
