Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Accessory description

The Dimension Sword (ディメンションソード Dimenshon Sōdo) is a sword that is seen wielded by the demon Janemba in Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn. The weapon is notable for its anti-dimensional properties.

Overview

DimensionSword2

The original form of the Dimension Sword

Originally a small club, Super Janemba uses his powers to reshape the object into the form of a sword similar in appearance to a Chinese jian. Due to Super Janemba's influence, it is capable of cutting through dimensions and creating dimensional portals by using slashing motions.

The range of the sword is vast. It has the ability to cut enemies from afar through purple blade shaped blasts that can seemingly cleave through anything, easily dealing critical damage to Goku's left arm with only a glancing blow.

Usage

The Dimension Sword attack in Fusion Reborn

Super Janemba uses the Dimension Sword to attack Super Saiyan 3 Goku soon after transforming into his second form, slicing deep wounds into the Saiyan warrior. As Super Janemba is about to deliver a finishing blow, it is destroyed when Vegeta saves Goku with a rain of energy blasts that land on the sword. Though surprised at first, the demon merely laughs about it maniacally before Super Saiyan 2 Vegeta attacks him head on. The sword is never seen again after it disintegrates.

Rakshasa's Claw in Dragon Ball Heroes

Super Janemba's Dimension Sword is also present in the Budokai Tenkaichi series and Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2. Super Janemba's Ultimate Blast in those video games is the Dimension Sword Attack: he dashes at the enemy and proceeds to use the sword to slash them a few times, finishing the attack with a green mouth energy blast.

Called Rakshasa's Claw (羅刹爪 Rasetsu Tsume), the sword attack is one of Super Janemba's super attacks in Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai, Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai - Another Road, Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World, and Dragon Ball Heroes. A technique identical to the Budokai version is used by the Fu-Lum in the Dragonball Evolution video game.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Skill description

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, it also appears under the name Rakshasa's Claw and appears as one of Janemba's Super Skills. It can be obtained by the Future Warrior as a reward in Parallel Quest 57: "Hell is a Picture?". In Xenoverse 2, depending on the input the user can fire up to five ki slash waves with the sword before closing in and finishing the attack with a downward two-handed sword slash. In addition to the Super Skill, Super Janemba and Janemba•Supervillain can utilize the sword during certain combos as well, though Janemba•Supervillain's sword has the same coloration as Janemba•Supervillain indicating the Dark Energy of the form has altered it. Interestingly the sword wielded by the Future Warrior as part of the skill has a normal steel blade instead of its normal crimson blade.[1]

The sword also appears as an accessory, named Janemba's Sword, awarded to high-scoring participants of the "Defiler of This World and the Next" raid event in Xenoverse 2. The accessory is has a crimson blade unlike the sword wielded by the Future Warrior as part of Rakashasa's Claw.
