"I'm not ashamed by, nor do I regret my weakness! I've fought to protect everyone and survived with everyone's help! That's who I am! We worked together to survive! That's who we Mortals are!"
Final Hope Slash is a powerful technique originally used by Future Trunks in his Spirit Bomb Super Saiyan Anger form. It is a powerful slash utilizing the Spirit Bomb Sword, and was used to defeat Fused Zamasu.
After the creation of the Spirit Bomb Sword, Future Trunks stabs the opponent and slashes them vertically in half in order to finish them off.
Future Trunks uses it to defeat Fused Zamasu, causing him to cast off his bodily form.
Video game appearances
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Final Hope Slash appears as part of the Sword of Hope Ultimate Skill which can be used by both Future Trunks (Dragon Ball Super) in his Capsule Corp. Clothes 3 skillset and the Future Warrior (Xenoverse 2) after the 1.07.00 Update. When the Sword of Hope is active, the user can perform it via pressing the Jump Button, which causes the user to attack with the Final Hope Slash (this can be performed by Future Trunks in both his base or Super Saiyan 2 form if the Awoken Skill is activated before activating Sword of Hope). Once the attack is completed the user sheathes the Sword of Hope automatically ending the Ultimate skill's effect. Thus the Final Hope Slash acts as the Sword of Hope's finishing move.
The Future Warrior (Xenoverse 2) can use the Sword of Hope and its Final Hope Slash with any Awoken Skill that allow access to their assigned skillset such as Kaio-ken (x3, x20), Super Saiyan (SSJ, SSJ2, SSJ3), Super Vegeta (SSJ, SSJ2), Future Super Saiyan (SSJ), Potential Unleashed, and Turn Golden (Frieza Race only) provided they are activated before the Ultimate Skill. As a result it cannot be used with the Awoken Skills Become Giant (Great Namek), Power Pole Pro (Earthling), and Purification (Pure Majin).
- The way this technique looks and is used is very similar to the one of the Gravity Break, from Dragon Ball Online, but also using the energy and hope of different people instead of the user's one alone.
- The similarity is even bigger with it's stronger version, the Focused Gravity Break, where the user gets in the air before channeling the sharp aura and falls to the opponent with a strong vertical slash.
