The lower half of Domination is rather wide and sports a thin gap shaped like an upside-down diamond in the middle. A rectangular protrusion is present in the middle of the blade, and the tip of the blade flares outward. This type of Ethereal Blade is identical to Despair, except for the fact it is white and has a faint, pink-violet glow.
Domination creates a purple, organic-looking impact effect upon striking targets. Landing a combo finisher creates a larger effect.
Domination is the exercise of power in ruling, which is often done in an arbitrary or insolent way.
Domination also shares its attack combos with Despair. The ground combo consists of a rightward slash across Xemnas's front with his right hand, a spinning slash with both hands, and a very long thrust forward with his left hand. The thrust has a knock-back effect.
The aerial combo consists of a quick spinning slash with both hands followed by a downward thrust dropping Xemnas to the ground, and an aerial spin with a slash from each hand. Both the downward thrust and finishing slash have a knock-back effect.
