Deadly Swordsmanship is a Physical Martial Arts Technique weapon-based techniques, employed by Trunks.


The Hissatsuken makes use of the sword that Trunks carries around on his back, and is one of his most lethal techniques. He initiates the technique by bifurcating the opponent down the middle, a blow that typically ensures death on the first strike. Utilizing quick, multi-slashes, Trunks slices the opponent into ribbons, and destroys the pieces of the target with a Life Cultivation Wave. This was the technique Trunks used to finish off Freeza.[8]
