Defeating downed Enemies

The Fatal Blow is a sword technique in Skyward Sword.[1]


The Fatal Blow is one of Link's Special Sword Strikes. It is executed by shaking the Wii Remote and Nunchuk vertically while targeting a downed enemy. If Link successfully performs a Spin Attack while training with the Practice Sword, Eagus will teach him to perform a Fatal Blow.[2]

The Fatal Blow can be executed on nearly any bipedal foe, and is used during the penultimate battle, against Ghirahim once he has fallen to a lower battle platform. It is later vital to defeating Demise, sealing him within the Master Sword.[3]
