«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.
|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.
