The one flaw with all swwords is,of course, the obvious lack of range. How do you solve this problem? Sword Beams.

A character will make a slashing motion with their BFS, but at a distance. What follows is a usually crescent-shaped energy attack. These can travel through the air or on the ground. Another version is stabbing or smashing the blade into the ground and creating a >-shaped stream of energy.

Sometimes a Ki Attack. Not to be confused with [Beam Swords|Energy Weapons].

Examples

  • Mega Man X's [My Hero Zero|Zero] does this all this time, usually in a boss fight against him
  • Inuyasha's Kaze no Kizu
  • Bleach has numerous versions, since Shinigami always use swords.
