Ichigo using Stunning Slash.
|Effect||Ichigo slashes the Zangetsu around him, stunning any opponents hit.|
When performed, Ichigo would slash with the Zangetsu from in front of him to behind him. Opponents hit by the slash would be dealt 3% damage, and they would be stunned for a short period of time. Using this attack in the air would also slow his descent. After using the move, Ichigo would be unable to use any attack again for a few moments, though he could still move freely.
Despite this, the move could also be used as an infinite; the time it would take Ichigo to recover from this move was shorter than the time it would take his opponent to recover from being stunned, so the player could repeatedly use this move on an opponent with minimum effort or consequence while racking up easy damage on them.
- Stunning Slash used the same sprites and animation as Ichigo's forward tilt at that time.
