Also Called

  • Enhanced Swordplay
  • Master Swordsmanship/Swordplay
  • Supreme Swordsmanship/Swordplay
  • The Way of The Sword


Users are able to demonstrate a natural aptitude for the ways of the sword. The user is able to wield a sword with great proficiency in speed, power, and skill, allowing them to perform feats such as stopping and deflecting bullets, decimate large objects or areas, cutting through hard materials such as steel, and even hold back their strength to deal damage to their foes without killing them.

The user is also able to operate with little or no effort, deliver skillful strikes to weak points with great precision. This ability also allows the users to become naturally skilled with multiple swords or any bladed weapon regardless of shape or size to suit their needs in combat.





  • Slicing through solid objects (Bricks, Metals, Lava etc.) would destroy most conventional weaponry (non-enchanted steel weapons, etc.)
  • User may be heavily reliant on sword-based combat and can be vulnerable if their swords are destroyed or taken away.
  • May be limited to close range combat, which can have difficulty against opponents that can fight at a distance.
