- The correct title of this article is slash attack. The initial letter is shown capitalized due to technical restrictions.
A slash attack is an attack performed by pressing the A Button. Slash attacks are the most prevalent form of combat in No More Heroes. So long as the first slash attack hits an enemy, a Slash Combo is guaranteed or very likely to occur if the player repeatedly presses the A Button. Certain times may require a particular Slashing Stance in order to damage an enemy successfully, such as using a High Slashing Stance against an enemy who guards low, or a Low Slashing Stance against an enemy who guards high.
