A class of fighters who use swords in Dragon Ball Online. Goten and Trunks, the founders of the Kikoukenjutsu Sword School are masters of this class.


Swordsman Class

Trunks one of the founders of the Kikoukenjutsu Sword School.

After the release of Gohan's book, "Groundbreaking Science", which informed the general public of advanced martial arts, the people of Earth took great interest in fighting. Some specifically gained interest in the theory of channeling ki energy through swords to increase the speed and power of strikes because of the book's article "Katchin Can Be Cut!". This article reveals that the dense material Katchin can be cut, which greatly intrigue Trunks and Goten. "Swordsmanship is cool, isn't it. Let's set up an awesome school all by ourselves!", the two become enthralled by this motivation. Via intense training, the two are able to develop their natural potential and, as adults, found the Kikoukenjutsu Sword School to educate the planet's new generation of warriors.

In Age 820, remnants of the Frieza Force attack Earth and the Kikoukenjutsu Sword School is reported to play a major role in their defeat; being the only major fighting school established until a year later when Krillin and Tien's schools are founded. The Kikoukenjutsu Sword School still exists as of Age 1000 and is one of the most notable martial arts schools on the planet. Using their schools sword techniques, Goten & Trunks were able to overcome the Frieza Force's army of Jigglers (the same alien species as the Red Ribbon Army's monster Buyon that Goku had fought during his assault on Muscle Tower in the past) which the Frieza Force had deployed to counter physical attacks by Earthling Martial Artists.


It should be noted that swordsmanship itself predates the foundation of the Kikoukenjutsu Sword School, as shown by various characters such as the Bear Thief, Yamcha, Chi-Chi, Ninja Murasaki, Murasaki Brothers, Pirate Robot, Mercenary Tao, Yajirobe, Gohan, Future Trunks, Kogu, Dabura, and Janemba. King Cold demonstrates being somewhat familiar with swords and briefly wields Future Trunks' Sword before his death. In Supersonic Warriors 2, Future Trunks states he learned swordsmanship from Future Gohan who had learned to wield a sword during his training under Piccolo during Attack of the Saiyans.

Physical Swords are known to have existed in Universe 7 since 75 Million Before Age as Old Kai was sealed within the Z Sword by the God of Destruction Beerus during that period, though this knowledge was eventually lost among the Supreme Kais who came to mistakenly believe the sword was a legendary blade that had the power to bring out its wielder's potential, unaware said ability belonged to Old Kai and not the sword itself. North Supreme Kai was a swordsman in the 5 Million Before Age. The Konatsian Wizard and his two students Tapion and Minotia where swordsmen in 226 Before Age. The Z Sword remained stuck in a rock despite attempts by various Supreme Kais and their attendants such as Kibito to remove it. The sword itself was only finally removed in the main timeline by Super Saiyan Full Power Gohan during the Majin Buu conflict at Shin's behest. Gohan trains with the sword which is accidentally broken when Gohan attempts to cut a block of Katchin with the blade which breaks, freeing Old Kai who reveals the sword's true nature to Shin, Kibito, Gohan, & Goku, without identifying Beerus as the one responsible. In Future Trunks' Alternate timeline, Super Saiyan Full Power Future Trunks similarly removes the sword at the behest of Future Shin. However unfortunately Future Trunks' training is interrupted before he can attempt to cut a block of Katchin, thus Future Old Kai remains sealed. Future Trunks wields the Z Sword during his battle with Future Dabura clashing with the Demon King's Darkness Sword. However unfortunately the sword is turned to stone by Future Dabura's Stone Spit and then destroyed by Future Dabura, resulting in Future Old Kai's death. However Future Trunks manages to achieve Super Saiyan 2 allowing him to kill Future Dabura without the blade and is ultimately successful in preventing Future Innocent Buu from being freed from the Sealed Ball. Future Trunks would eventually obtain another sword which he wields during the Project Zero Mortals conflict. Zamasu, Future Zamasu, and Goku Black are all extremely talented swordsmen who utilize energy blade techniques such as God Split Cut and its Violent Fierce God Slicer variant. Additionally Goku Black can utilize Alteration-type ki manipulation technique to create more advanced energy blades such as Azure Dragon Sword Model Energy Blade and other bladed weapons such as his Sickle of Sorrow. Vegeta is shown using the Spirit Sword to save himself from being eliminated from the Tournament of Power. The Universe 6 Super Namekian Saonel utilizes the energy blade as on of his techniques during the Tournament of Power as well. The Universe 11 Pride Trooper Kahseral can emit energy blades from both hands via his Justice Saber.

In Dragon Ball Online, some of the Frieza Force's Vewonean and Sinkleean soldiers wield Laser Swords. In Dragon Ball Fusions, the Frieza Force veteran Dodoria's race member Caluppa is a master swordsmen capable of wielding both physical swords and energy blades who has served within the army since the days of the Cold Force which makes sense given his former boss, King Cold's own knowledge of swordsmanship. Additionally Racyoh is Saiyan swordsman who became interested in the ways of Earthling Samurai and can utilize both physical swords and energy blades.

In Dragon Ball Heroes, the Xeno World incarnation of Future Trunks, Xeno Trunks is a swordsman and Time Patroller. Additionally, Future Gohan and Future Trunks' fusion Future Gohanks is also a swordsman like his fusees who wields Future Trunks' sword. Future Gohanks counterpart Xeno Gohanks is also a swordsman who wields Xeno Trunks' sword. Additionally, Xeno Gotenks inherits Xeno Trunks' knowledge of swordsmanship. Gohan (Supreme Kai Clothes) can wield the Z Sword as a weapon in Dragon Ball Heroes. Additionally in the game version of the Dark King Mechikabura Saga, Xeno Bardock briefly wields Xeno Trunks' discarded Key Sword to defeat Dark Broly. Other swordsmen in Dragon Ball Heroes include Demon God Salsa, Xeno Janemba, Dark Demon God Xeno Majin Buu (as a result of his absorption of Demon God Dabura and Xeno Janemba), & Fu. Like his main timeline counterpart Xeno Vegito can utilize several variations of the Spirit Sword such as Spirit Excalibur.

Mass-Produced Soldier Saibaman card depicting the Saibaman Swordsman wielding Future Trunks' sword in Dokkan Battle

In Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle, the Mass-Produced Soldier Saibaman card (from the SaiBai Battle event in April Fool's 2017) features a team of Saibamen who mimic the Z Fighters with one of them mimicking Future Trunks by wearing his sword on their back which they will wield during their team Super Attack Saibamen Assault during which the Saibaman Swordsman will perform Future Trunks' High Strike.

In Dragon Ball Legends, Zahha is a magic user and swordsmen who wields his two swords with Telekinesis. Zahha can also channel energy into his swords to increase their cutting and piercing power such as when he literally stabs his "ally" Shallot in the back, before revealing his identity as the true Mastermind behind the Tournament of Time and the kidnapping of Shin. While Shallot himself can equip a replica of Tapion's Sword as an accessory, he can only utilize Energy Blade Special Move Arts such as Thouser Blade and Fierce God Slicer. As a result, Shallot is unable to learn Special Move Arts that involve physical swords such as Future Trunks' Flash Blade.

In Dragon Ball FighterZ, Android 21, Android 21 (Evil), and Android 21 (Good) utilize an energy blade technique called Connoisseur Cut which allows them to copy various techniques such as Kamehameha, Instant Transmission, Solar Flare, etc, depending upon the opponent.

In Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, RR Mech Soldiers and its variants can emit energy blades from their Killer Machine Gun arm cannons.

Other Bladed Weaponry

Main articles: Knife, Switchblade, Demon Scythe, and Flaming Death Scythe Swords and energy blades aren't the only bladed weapons to be utilized in the series. Knives and Switchblades are blades commonly used on Earth as weapons and/or tools that can be easily carried and concealed making them popular among criminals and villains such as Emperor Pilaf who owns a switchblade, Karot (a soldier stationed at Muscle Tower), and General Blue of the Red Ribbon Army wielded knives during the Red Ribbon Army War. Knives are also utilized by Earthlings in cooking or as eating utensils, though Yajirobe and Gohan have utilized swords in a similar manner to prepare food while surviving in the wilderness. Bulma, Chi-Chi, and Launch have also utilized knives in cooking. In the anime, a Female Saiyan living on Planet Plant is shown with knife in her mouth, while in Dragon Ball Minus and Dragon Ball Super: Broly, Gine is shown to wield meat cleavers and butcher knives in her work as a meat processing employee. Mamba utilizes a rather large butcher knife to slice up Earthlings she plans to eat and can create a Demon Scythe via Magic Materialization. Demon God Shroom wields his Flaming Death Scythe in Dragon Ball Heroes.
