Normally this attack will leave a X-shaped stream of blood in the air coming from the victim.

Nitōryū Techniques

  • Nitōryū Iai: Rashōmon (Two Sword Style Draw and Resheath Technique: Castle Gate): Zoro places his katanas back into their sheaths and places one sheath on his other hip until he swiftly dashes towards his foes and draws his katanas out of their sheaths to slash his target until sheathes them quickly. It has great strength that can easily slice through buildings and vehicles.

Ittōryū Techniques

  • Sanbyakurokuju Pound Ho (360 Pound Cannon): Stronger version of Sanjuroku Pound Ho. Zoro swipes one of his katanas out to hurl a huge spiralling blade of compressed air from his katana that are capable of shredding a steel gate to pieces.
  • Daishinkan (Great Dragon Shock): Using his Shusui for this attack, Zoro lifts the katana up above his head then performs a powerful downward slashing blow, which is capable of slicing someone in half.
  • Ittōryū Iai: Shishi Sonson (One Sword Style Draw and Resheath Technique: Lion's Song): Using his Wadō Ichimonji, Zoro dashes at his foe and slashes them with a powerful slash as he draws the katana form the sheath and swiftly resheathing it after the attack.
