"I now understand how you are improving so rapidly. It's anger isn't it? The anger that your son was hurt made you strong didn't it? Now that I realize it, it's simple....turn anger into power. I see, anger. Anger at the mortals who disrespect the universe. Anger at the gods who overlook that disrespect. And....anger at my powerless self for losing to a mere mortal!"
— Goku Black to Vegeta about to develop this technique

Violent Fierce God Slicer's scythe evolution is an anime-only Energy Blade technique, and the most powerful variant of the Violent Fierce God Slicer used by Goku Black in his Super Saiyan Rosé form. He achieved this by using his anger, creating a new blade entirely.


The Blade

"Look you appetizer, by turning my anger into power I have gained another power. If anger can be a source of strength...then the anger I hold, greater than anyone else's, makes me the strongest."
— Goku Black describing its power to Vegeta after creating the scythe.

Not much is actually known about the blade itself. However as Goku Black said above, it is known to be fueled by anger, thus creating this blade. This scythe can fire a large slash towards their opponent, although it is much slower than Black's usual attacks. Nevertheless, this attack is powerful enough to tear a rift in space and time. Besides this, the true power of this new ki blade is unknown, beside a statement from Black that his anger makes him the "strongest".

The Rift

"Who knows? Even I don't know. Is what we see a different universe? The far future or the past? It could even be the bottomless anger that I hold within me. My power has surpassed even my understanding....."
— Goku Black to Vegeta after creating the rift.

This rift is the product of the the Violent Fierce God Slicer after Black attempted to attack Vegeta with one slice. Although it completely missed, the slice was enough to rip a hole in reality. As said by Black above, this technique is largely unknown in terms of where it comes from. However, in the Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 video game, it is stated that it was due to his Time Ring.[1] The rift is able to spawn multiple versions of him using the same sinister energy Black possesses. These "clones" are all equal to Black in terms of strength, but not in durability. However, this void will spawn more once one goes away, and if Black wishes, to create more. It also blocks any inter-dimensional teleportation techniques such as Instant Transmission. This rift will continue to exist until Black goes too far away, causing the void to disappear and in extension, the clones as well.

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, this rift is shown to create anomalies in time. Causing several enemies with similar evil energy as Goku Black to appear out of the portal. However, good energy can come out of it as well. As it is revealed that this rift is indeed from anywhere in the timeline. This is what caused Fused Zamasu's downfall against Future Trunks when Future Trunks used Give Me Energy! from several other timelines.

Video game appearances


The rift in Xenoverse 2.

The technique makes its video game debut in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. While the Scythe itself is not shown, the rift appears in the game in a cutscene, spawning many enemies in Supervillain Mode. It also appeared in a cinematic cutscene when Future Trunks uses Give Me Energy! as the rift appeared in several different times in which the residents gave their energy to help assist him.


  • The scythe is a parody of the weapon with the exact same name held by Death, also known as the Grim Reaper, following the use of divine culture as ideas for the gods.
