Warning Spoiler Alert: This article/section contains details about future plotlines described in the light novels, not covered in the anime. Do not proceed unless you want to be spoiled.

«Tsujikaze» (辻風(ツジカゼ), Tsujikaze?, literally "Whirlwind") is a 1-hit Katana category Sword Skill in Sword Art Online, New ALfheim Online and Project Alicization.


«Tsujikaze» is a straight, long-ranged, Iai-type skill. After a short period of "charging", the user executes a diagonal slash from bottom-left to top-right at such a speed that it is impossible for the human eye to keep track of the sword.

The skill is activated by lowering a katana-type weapon to the user's left hip. The skill takes some time before it activates, which is the only time that the opponent has to prepare a counter-attack, as the skill is too fast once it initiates.


Instance Description
Light Novel Anime Manga
Progressive Volume 1, Aria of a Starless Night, Part 14 Episode 2 Illfang the Kobold Lord activated this skill as Kirito and Asuna attempted to approach it. Kirito blocked the skill with «Rage Spike», giving Asuna a quick opening to strike the creature with «Linear».
Volume 8, Calibur Part 4 Klein uses this skill to break the ice cage holding Freyja.


  • The anime depicts the skill as having a white/light blue colour effect, instead of a green one.
