High Strike is a sword slash attack used by Future Trunks.
Future Trunks uses it to cut Mecha Frieza in half, and later uses it against Android 14, only for the android to stop it. Present Trunks later uses a similar move to cut a part of Hirudegarn's tail off.
- Dirty Slash – King Cold's variant of the High Strike, unlike Trunks' version, the user does not leap into the air before slashing down.
Appearances in games
The High Strike was named in the Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game, where it is one of Future Trunks' techniques.
In Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, it appears under the name Shining Slash as one of Future Trunks' Super Skills. It can also be obtained by the Future Warrior as a reward in Parallel Quest 24: "Power Teams". It is one of two sword-based techniques (the other being Burning Slash) used by the Future Warrior and Future Trunks in the game. It can only be used by the Future Warrior if their selected race is either a Earthling or a Saiyan.
"Slash with a sword! Chargeable. Charge, and you'll move right to your enemy."
— Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Skill description
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Shining Slash returns as one of Future Trunks' Super Skills which can be obtained by the Future Warrior (Xenoverse 2) as a reward in Parallel Quest 38: "Power Teams". Like in Xenoverse, it can only be used by the Future Warrior if they are either an Earthling or Saiyan. Interestingly, it is obtained in the exact same Parallel Quest that was in Xenoverse (the only difference between the two games are Parallel Quest number listings).
