Burning Sword (バーニングソード, Burning Sword) is Pyra's Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.


Pyra summons Rex, who says "Do it, Pyra!" and performs an overhand slash to transition into a cutscene. In the cutscene, Pyra says "Yeah, on it.", and she and Rex hold the Aegis Sword together and leap toward the trapped opponents, shouting the move’s name. The game then transitions back into normal gameplay, where Pyra and Rex summon a large pillar of fire in front of them, which then explodes. Pyra says "Witness our power!" at the end of the Final Smash.

In Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Burning Sword is Pyra's Level 4 Blade Special. The technique also serves as one of Pyra's signature moves, as she and Rex perform Burning Sword during many cutscenes. The move's animation in Smash is a recreation of its animation in battles in Xenoblade Chronicles 2.



  • Burning Sword and Sacred Arrow are the first Final Smashes that start off with a cinematic but end in-game. The opposite holds true for Infernal Climax.
    • They are also the first Final Smashes from a Fighters Pass character to contain non-cinematic elements, and the second Final Smashes of DLC characters overall with this distinction, following Petey Piranha.
