Retaliating Slash (リベンジスラッシュ Ribenji Surasshu?, lit. "Revenge Slash") is an ability that appears in Kingdom Hearts II. It allows the user to regain their balance and attack after being knocked down. In Sora's Lion Form, the ability is dubbed Retaliating Smash.


In Kingdom Hearts II, Retaliating Slash is an action ability that costs 3 AP to equip, while Retaliating Smash is an action ability that is automatically equipped. It is an aerial finisher activated by pressing Square after being knocked into the air. Unlike Aerial Recovery, it does not provide invulnerability. When executed in Valor Form or Wisdom Form, Sora will simply perform the basic aerial attack of those respective forms.
