Video Game Appearances
The High Strike was named in the Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game, where it is one of Future Trunks' techniques.
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, it appears under the name Shining Slash as one of Future Trunks' Super Skills. It can also be obtained by the Future Warrior as a reward in Parallel Quest 24: "Power Teams". It is one of two sword-based techniques (the other being Burning Slash) used by the Future Warrior and Future Trunks in the game. It can only be used by the Future Warrior if their selected race is either an Earthling or a Saiyan.
"Slash with a sword! Chargeable. Charge, and you'll move right to your enemy."
— Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Skill description
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Shining Slash returns as one of Future Trunks' Super Skills which can be obtained by the Future Warrior as a reward in Parallel Quest 38: "Power Teams". Like in Xenoverse, it can only be used by the Future Warrior if they are either an Earthling or Saiyan. Interestingly, it is obtained in exactly the same Parallel Quest that was in Xenoverse (the only difference between the two games are Parallel Quest number listings).
It reappears in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, under the name Shining Sword Attack (シャイニングソードアタック Shainingu Sōdo Atakku), where it is one of Future Trunks initial Skills.
