Weapon attacks[]

For Legend Signatures, see the individual Legend pages above

Light ground attacks

Input Description Animation Damage Stun Frame Data Notes
Neutral A series of two sweeping slashes in place. Hitting with any one results in a third slash, also in place.
← / → A lunging pair of continual, forward circular slashes that carries the Legend forward a rather long distance. Has little force, but a wide, continual arc.
A single, low cut in front at ankle/shin height. Hitting carries the target into the air and is immediately followed by another, inescapable upwards cut.

Light air attacks

Input Description Animation Damage Stun Frame Data Notes


A singular, arcing upwards slash. Has a slight delay, and carries targets upwards.
← / → Two fast sideways slashes in front. Carries moderate force. Hitting with the first slash will typically result in hitting with the second as well.
A single wide, sweeping slash underneath.

Heavy air attacks

Input Description Animation Damage Stun Frame Data Notes



← / →

A upwards, twirling leap that carries the Legend upwards. Hits all around the Legend, but has a very short range. Only has force at the very end of the move.
A fast, downwards diving strike with the sword, point-first. Continues until it hits ground or a target.


All combos are subject to change as the game gets tweaked from patch to patch.

General strategies[]

For Legend-specific strategies, go to the Legend's individual page above
  • A comparitively short-ranged weapon, the sword is generally used to deliver numerous fast strikes in rapid succession to build up an opponent's damage, to be followed by a decisive, single strike with a Legend's Signature. While individually weak, the sword's light attacks come quickly and rapidly, and the right chain of light attacks can results in your opponent taking five or six hits with no chance of retaliation, and often even more than that.
  • The sword is not a weapon of extremes - it's reach, speed and strength are for the most part individually bested by other weapons in the game. But it excels in opening up opportunities for further attacks once that first hit lands - so approach and strike boldly!
  • The Aerial Down Light is a reliable attack to throw your opponent downwards - useful to score a knockout on an opponent attempting to recover. The Aerial Down Heavy diving stab also moves very quickly, similarly useful, and also useful for recovering your feet onto the stage if you are being juggled.
  • A reliably easy combo of hits consists of a Ground Down Light - which lifts your opponent off the ground - to an Aerial Side Light, which has a wide horizontal hitbox and can be executed quickly. This results in four hits in rapid succession when executed correctly, with little chance for the opponent to escape.
