A limit skill that slices the target in a cross-cut pattern.

Description, Final Fantasy Tactics.

Cross Slash (凶斬り, Kyōgiri?, lit. Bane Cutter), also written as Cross-slash and localized as Slayer, is a recurring attack in the series, usually a powerful non-elemental sword attack. It first debuted in Final Fantasy VII as Cloud Strife's second Limit Break, and usually appears when the character himself appears.

In several appearances, Cross Slash is normally a nod to its Japanese name, where the kanji for "wicked/bad luck" (凶) itself when the attack is successfully executed. In some cases, the attack's slashing patterns may or may not literally trace out the kanji, while on the other hand the kanji visual may be absent.

Appearances

Final Fantasy VII

Cross-slash, originally Cross Slash in the demo release, is the second Limit Break of the first tier of limits for Cloud. It is obtained after using Braver eight times, and it deals damage equal to 3.25 times that of a normal physical attack as well as inflicting Paralyze on an enemy. In the demo release it was Braver, rather than Cross Slash, that inflicted Paralyze.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

Slayer.

While wearing the SOLDIER First Class garb, Lightning has access to Slayer which is the finishing attack for Heavy Slash. Its animation is cross-over between Braver and Cross Slash where Lightning jumps into the air, like in Braver, but the finishing animation is that of the Cross Slash. It does double the damage of a regular Heavy Slash, but can only be used on a staggered opponent.

Final Fantasy Tactics

Cross Slash is a Limit ability of Soldier, better known as Cloud, which can only be used once he is equipped with the Materia Blade. It has a range and effect of 2, speed of 25, and requires 200 JP to use. It inflicts non-elemental damage to up to two enemies.

Dissidia Final Fantasy

Cross Slash is an HP attack of Cloud. It is one of his two initial HP attacks, and hits the opponent up to three times. It requires 180 AP to master this attack and requires 20 CP to be equipped.

Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy

Cross Slash returns as an HP Attack for Cloud. Like most moves in Dissidia 012, the tracking has been improved. Should Cloud miss a slash, he dashes a short distance toward the opponent on each subsequent slash.

Dissidia Final Fantasy (2015)

Cross Slash the HP attack used by Cloud initially. It functions exactly as it did in the PSP games.

Final Fantasy Airborne Brigade

Cross-Slash is one of Cloud's signature abilities, a Strength ability card and an ability used by the summon stone, Cloud I. The ability card was made available from red chocobos during the Final Fantasy VII Event: Operation Jenova.

The summon stone was only made obtainable during a pre-registration event for the initial release of Final Fantasy Airborne Brigade. It damages enemies with a non-elemental attack formed by lunging and making three slashes to resemble the form of an X. When summoning Cloud I, Cloud greatly damages enemies with the Cross-Slash.

Final Fantasy Record Keeper

Cross Slash is one of Cloud's Soul Break abilities, learned from the Hardedge (VII). It deals five times the basic physical damage, and has a 50% chance of causing Paralyze. It has a 2.75 second charge time.

In addition, an upgraded version of Cross Slash serves as Cloud's Ultra Soul Break. Called Ultra Cross Slash, it deals five hits of wind and dark damage at 1.5 times the basic physical damage, and grants EX Mode: SOLDIER to Cloud, allowing him to break the damage limit, as well as raising his Attack by 50% and forcing his attacks to become critical hits. It is learned from the Force Stealer (VII), and grants 10 Attack on mastery. It has a 2.5 second charge time.

Non-Final Fantasy guest appearances

Ehrgeiz: God Bless the Ring

Crosslash is Cloud's ability and it can only be done when he's in Sword Stance. This sword technique can be done by pressing the Up + Down, Up, Up, J Up buttons.

Kingdom Hearts series

When fought as a boss in Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II, Cloud uses a three-hit combo attack similar to Cross Slash. In Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories and it's remake Re:Chain of Memories, Cloud uses Cross Slash as a Sleight when fought as a boss. By using Cloud's summon card in his own Sleights, Sora is able to call on Cloud to use Cross Slash and Cross Slash+ (a version that involves Cloud warping next to an enemy before unleashing the attack).

In this series, the signature kanji visual the attack gives out is often absent, while Cloud's slashing pattern for the technique is still the same throughout. The technique is also often written as "Cross-slash" with a hyphen in those cases. Cloud also performs Cross-slash with the three attack motions (a downward slash, one-handed outward slash, then lifting slash) used during the Double Cut Materia.

Guardian Cross

Cloud will be able to use Cross-Slash as one of his available special moves. As with his other specials, this move can be powered up by his limit charge move, causing more damage and knockback.

The kanji drawn also cannot be flipped in accordance to Cloud's orientation on the screen.
