Link after using the Fatal Blow on Demise.
Defeating downed Enemies
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.
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.
