Cross-slash in Re:Chain of Memories.

Cross Slash (凶斬り Kyōgiri?, lit. "Misfortune Slash"), translated as "Cross-slash" in Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories, is a technique introduced in Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories. It allows the user to assault the enemy with three powerful sword strikes which trace out the kanji 凶 (Kyō, lit. "Misfortune"). Cross-slash+ (凶斬り・改 Kyōgiri Kai?, lit. "Misfortune Slash Revision") is a variation that allows the user to warp next to an enemy before continuing with Cross Slash. Both techniques are signature abilities of Cloud.

  • Sora learns Cross-slash once he obtains the Cloud card by clearing the Olympus Coliseum Room of Truth.
  • Sora learns Cross-slash+ after clearing Veggie Panic.

Other appearances[edit]

Kingdom Hearts[edit]

Cloud often uses this attack as a boss, where he performs a simple triple slash combo (a downward slash, followed by a right-handed outward slash to an upward lifting slash to his left). Any part of the combo can be deflected with Guard to have Cloud rear back a bit, allowing Sora to get a free combo in.

Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories[edit]

Cloud uses Cross-slash while fighting Sora. The card combination is:

Cloud - A1 (card).png + Cloud - A1 (card).png + Cloud - A1 (card).png

Kingdom Hearts II[edit]

The attack appears the same as in Kingdom Hearts, only it is slightly sped up in animation.

Kingdom Hearts Union χ[edit]

Cloud can use Cross Slash when fighting Player. It can paralyze Player.


Cross Slash is a recurring attack in the Final Fantasy series, debuting as one of Cloud Strife's initial Limit Breaks in Final Fantasy VII. It is often a prominent ability in his moveset, making appearances in most games in which he appears.
