Energy Blade is a sword technique used by several fighters by forming ki into a piercing energy blade around their hand.

Overview

The Salza Blade greatly resembles a lightsaber from the Star Wars universe, both in its inception, appearance, light emitted, and crackling sounds made.

Salza attacks Piccolo with the Salza Blade

Salza attempts to use his Salza Blade (サウザーブレード; Sauzā Burēdo) attack against Piccolo and manages to hold his own with this technique, forcing the powerful Namekian onto the defensive for a while. Salza slices through trees with equal finesse and ease while attempting to slice Piccolo. However, Piccolo dodges all of Salza's attacks. Piccolo eventually manages to grab the arm containing his attack and shorts it out, prompting a shocked Salza to ask who Piccolo is before Piccolo kicks him upward.

The different incarnations of Zamasu all use an Energy Blade variant - God Split Cut - as their primary technique.

Future Trunks uses a variant of this technique during the battle with Fused Zamasu, generating a blade of ki from the hilt of his broken sword rather than his hand.[7]

Dyspo of the Pride Troopers can create a blue energy blade with his right hand and Kahseral can use two golden energy blades.
