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.
Zamasu later uses his variant of the energy blade technique to kill a Babarian, cleaving the barbaric alien in two. In the future timeline, after faking being overwhelmed by Vegeta and transforming into a Super Saiyan Rosé, Goku Black pierces his chest with an energy blade, defeating him in one blow.
- Spirit Sword - Vegito's much longer variant of the energy blade technique.
- Spinning Blade - Jeice has literally put his own spin on the technique with a variation called Spinning Blade. Jeice spins circling around behind the opponent and attack them from behind with a Ki Blade. This technique appears in Dragon Ball: Xenoverse.
- God Split Cut- A lighter purple variant of the energy blade used by Zamasu and his future self.
Appearances in games
Cooler himself is given this technique, named Sauzer Blade, as one of his special attacks in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3, Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World, and the Dragon Ball Collectible Card Game, despite it never being used by him in movies.
The Salza Blade technique appears used by Salza as his Ultimate Blast in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3, Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2, and Dragon Ball Heroes. It is also the attack Salza performs when Cooler summons him in Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors 2. In Raging Blast 2, Salza also uses weaker version of the Salza Blade as his signature technique: the "Energy Blade".
This technique is one of Jeice's super skills, under the name Sauzer Blade in Dragon Ball: Xenoverse. The Future Warrior can also obtain the skill through Parallel Quest 10: "Defeat Frieza's Army!"
