"Your spree is over, primitive beast...DUST TO DUST!"

Violent Fierce God Slicer (激烈神裂斬 Gekiretsu Shin Retsu Zan) is an Energy Blade technique, and a more powerful variant of the God Split Cut.


Goku Black creates a pink sword of energy from his Super Saiyan Rosé aura, which he then uses in combat.


He first uses it in his fight against Vegeta, piercing his chest and defeating him instantly. He uses it again against Goku and Future Trunks to equally vicious efficiency.

In the anime, this technique continues to evolve as Black gets stronger. The first form, which he used to mortally wound Vegeta and then Goku, is a long blade resembling a broadsword. The second version is much larger, with a slight curve to give it a resemblance to a large cutlass. This version can fire javelin-like projectiles, which Goku Black uses to defeat Goku. The third form is a large scythe, which can generate massive crescent-shaped energy waves to attack the opponent at range and can create rifts in dimensional space. Energy exuding from the rift can produce replicas of Black with similar power levels that can also regenerate.

Fused Zamasu uses the Violent Fierce God Slicer variant of this technique while in his final battle with Vegito, only to be caught off guard by Vegito's own blade impaling him through the chest. He later tries the technique against Future Trunks, only for Trunks to slash through the ki blade and defeat the Potara-fused villain.

As shown by Vegeta and Future Trunks, despite this technique's growing power from Black or Fusion Zamasu, if an opponent can generate a strong enough aura, it can block this technique's strike unharmed or even break through it.

In the manga, Black used this technique in his base form to fatally stab Gowasu who was trying to convince his former pupil to change his wicked ways, however Gowasu is later healed with a Senzu Bean and as a result survives.


In the anime only when Goku Black gets stronger through pain, and later anger, he starts to develop a special ability to manipulate ki into various objects and shapes. And as he gets more and more powerful, his Violent Fierce God Slicer attack changes.

  • Divine Retribution: A combo technique used by Black either using the Black Power Ball, or slicing the opponent up using the Violent Fierce God Slicer. Named in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.
  • Alteration-type ki manipulation technique: A special ability to shape and change ki and its properties into something different entirely.
    • Azure Dragon Sword Model Energy Blade:[4] A more powerful version of his usual sword form, he uses it in combination with several piercing energy blasts that explode on contact.
    • Sickle of Sorrow: An even more powerful version of the Violent Fierce God Slicer technique that took the form of a scythe after Goku Black turned his anger into power. It became capable of opening a rift in space and time which could release clones of himself that are as strong as he is.

Video Game Appearances

The attack appears as Fused Zamasu's super attack in Super Dragon Ball Heroes. First Zamasu creates the Violent Fierce God Slicer, then he turns it into a giant blade, and then he slashes the opponent multiple times.

The Future Warrior using Violent Fierce God Slicer version of Divine Retribution in Xenoverse 2

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black uses it his standard combos, grab/throw, and as part of his Divine Retribution Super Skill if additional input is entered before the skill's Black Power Ball ki blast is released. If timed correctly the additional input causes the user to use Violent Fierce God Slicer to move above the opponent to deliver a downward slice instead of firing the Black Power Ball (which occurs normally when there is no additional input). The Future Warrior can also use it as part of the Divine Retribution Super Skill which the Warrior can obtain by purchasing it from the TP Medal Shop. As part of the Super Pack 4 DLC, Fused Zamasu can use it as part of his standard combos. After the 1.09.00 Update, Goku can use the Azure Dragon Sword Model Energy Blade version as part of Divine Lasso via Partner Customization.

In Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission, its name is localized as Violent God Slicer and its appears as Fused Zamasu's Super Attack in his base form. Additionally, it can also be learned by Berserker type Hero Avatars after Fused Zamasu's Camaraderie reaches Lvl 2. It can also be learned by the playable ally protagonist Kagyu after he reaches Bond Lvl 15.[1]

In Dragon Ball Legends, it appears as Half-Corrupted Fusion Zamasu's Ultimate Move Arts Legendary Finish named Sword of Sanctifying Light.
