Sword Beam last edited by LaPetiteJort on 03/28/20 06:37PM View full history

When a character swings a sword and some sort of light, wind, or some other form of energy is flung forward. The attack can act as a useful ranged attack in melee-focused games.

Examples

The Legend of Zelda

The Legend of Zelda has used this concept from the very first game. Link must often be a full health.

In The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, the player must hold the Wii Remote straight up to charge the beam.

Dark Souls 3

Yhorm the Giant is weak against the Storm Ruler, which when charged, emits a beam of wind.
