Instant Severance (瞬間裂斬, Shunkan Retsuzan, lit. "Instant Fierce Cut") is a long-ranged technique used by Zamasu and is derived from the God Split Cut Energy Blade.



Zamasu summoning God Split Cut before initiating the move

Zamasu uses a kiai to push the opponent away, then charges the God Split Cut in his right hand. He then approaches the opponent in the form of a ki slash and then dismembers the opponent in half, causing great damage, if not instant death.

Zamasu used this when a Babarian found both Gowasu and Zamasu watching over them. Using this move, Zamasu kills the Babarian instantly, much to Gowasu's chagrin.

Future Zamasu also uses the technique in a parallel version of Future Trunks' timeline featured in a parallel quest, however it should be noted that like Android 17, Android 18, Android 16, and Cell, Zamasu is used to represent his Future counterpart in Xenoverse 2.[1]
