The High Strike slash is used as the first part of the Shining Sword Attack, Full Charge Burning Slash, Lightning Sword Slash, and Garlic Buster.


Trunks' Brave Sword

Future Trunks uses it to cut Mecha Frieza in half, and later uses it against Android 14, only for the android to stop it.

Trunks later uses a similar move to cut a part of Hirudegarn's tail off.

Ackman also uses a similar move to cut a Martian in half.


  • Neo Shining Sword Attack (シャイニングソードアタックカイ Shainingu Sōdo Atakku Kai), where it is a stronger variation of the High Strike used by Future Trunks in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.[3]
    • Super Shining Sword Attack (スーパーシャイニングソードアタック Sūpā Shainingu Sōdo Atakku) an even stronger version in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot where, Future Trunks dashes against his opponent and sends a final slash, causing a blue explosion and inflicting even more damage.[3]
  • Dirty Slash – King Cold's variant of the High Strike, unlike Trunks' version, the user does not leap into the air before slashing down.
  • Shining Slash - Trunks' variant of High Strike used against Hirudegarn. Named in Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle.[6]

Video Game Appearances

The High Strike was named in the Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game, where it is one of Future Trunks' techniques.


Future Trunks using Shining Slash in Xenoverse

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).

In Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission, in addition to High Strike being used as part of Burning Slash, it is also a part of Super Saiyan 3 Trunks (Xeno)'s Full Charge Burning Slash (which is confusingly localized as Full Charge Burning Attack like his variation of Burning Attack from Dragon Ball Heroes). Additionally Dirty Slash appears as King Cold's Super Attack.[5]

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.

It also appears in the Saturn version of Dragon Ball Z: The Legend, under the name Trunks Sword (トランクスソード Torankusu Sōdo).
