Vegito forms the Spirit Sword by channeling his energy into his hand to form a lengthy, extendable ki blade.
Vegito can create a Spirit Sword in a moment as a powerful attack to instantly skewer an unsuspecting opponent at long range.
Vegito as a Super Saiyan uses this attack twice during his battle against Super Buu (w/ Gohan absorbed). Vegito catches Super Buu by impaling him through the stomach, but Super Buu manages to manipulate his body off of the sword and regenerate himself. Vegito uses the Spirit Sword again to impale Super Buu through his mouth, but the Majin regenerates again.
"You think you're the only one who can manage that little trick?"
Upon re-appearing in Dragon Ball Super, Vegito, in his Super Saiyan Blue form, uses this attack in his match with Fused Zamasu. In the anime, after Vegito is knocked down and plays possum, drawing Fused Zamasu towards him, the rogue Kai attempts to finish Vegito with his Fierce God Slicer. Vegito counters by stabbing him straight through the chest with the Spirit Sword, mocking Zamasu, as he had a similar technique. Despite being semi-immortal and feeling considerable pain, Fused Zamasu survived the assault and broke free from the impalement. In the manga, it was shown against Fused Zamasu that this technique can also be used for close-range combat and perform slashing strikes as well, with Vegito using it to slice of Fused Zamasu's arms.

Video Game Appearances
This technique is named Beam Sword Slash in the Butōden series, and Energy Sword (エネルギー手刀) in Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury (it is chargeable and Vegito swings it around him after releasing it). It is also used in Dragon Ball Z: The Legend.
It was named Spirit Sword in the Budokai series and Dragon Ball Heroes (also used by the players' avatar). In Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai, Vegito can use this move in his base form and when he does, he fires it more like an energy blast than a sword slash.
The technique is named Beam Sword Slash in the Budokai Tenkaichi series and Raging Blast series: it is Super Vegito's Ultimate Blast in Budokai Tenkaichi and Budokai Tenkaichi 2, and one of his Blast 2 attacks in Budokai Tenkaichi 3 and the Raging Blast series.
"Attack with an ultra-powerful sword made of Ki!"
— Dragon Ball Xenoverse Skill description
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, Vegito's first moveset uses the move as his Ultimate Skill. Also, the Future Warrior can obtain the Spirit Sword as a reward in Parallel Quest 41: "Frieza's Nightmare Returns!". When performed the user extends the blade out to stab the opponent then delivers a clockwise slash at the opponent. However, if the blade fails to stab the opponent (due to evading or being out of the blade's range) then the attack ends without the slash. Also though the stab momentarily captures the opponent they are briefly released during the clockwise slash, potentially allowing the opponent to escape the follow-up slash. Unlike other depictions, the energy of the blade is blue in Xenoverse and despite the blade being made of ki, it is classified as a Strike Skill thus its attack power is boosted by the user's Strike Super stat instead of Ki Blast Supers stat.
In Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle, it serves as Vegito's primary Super Attack.
In Dragon Ball Fusions, there is a variation of Spirit Sword called Spirit Blade which appears as a learnable Special Move for several characters such as Racyoh, Goku Black, and Fused Zamasu. There is also a stronger variant of Spirit Blade called Super Spirit Blade which functions identical to Spirit Blade but with greater power. Vegito's Spirit Sword appears under then name Vegito Sword and has a stronger variant called Super Vegito Sword.
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, the Spirit Sword returns as one of Vegito's Ultimate Skills which he can use in all three of his Skillsets and functions like it did in Xenoverse. The Future Warrior can obtain as a reward for completing Expert Mission 17: "In the Realm of the Gods: Goku".
"I don't want to see, a trace of you left!"
This technique appears in Dragon Ball Legends as Super Vegito's Ultimate skill. If used to finish off the last fighter and end the fight, Vegito will create a Spirit Sword with both hands and combine them into a giant blade before dropping it on his opponent, blowing them away into nothingness with a Legendary Finish. There is also a normal rush version of the Spirit Sword which appears as the Transforming Vegito's Special Move Arts Skill.
In Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, Spirit Sword is one of Vegito's Super skills, appearing as a fast lunging, multi-hitting barrage of sword strikes.
- In the Yu Yu Hakusho series, Kazuma Kuwabara uses a similar technique also called Spirit Sword (霊剣 Reiken).
- In the Bleach series, Bazz-B uses a very similar technique of the Spirit Sword called Burner Finger 4. Which he uses as a spirit sword-like katana out of reishi fire from scorching heat through his epithet, H - "The Heat".
