Demon Slayer is one of Dunban's physical arts in Xenoblade Chronicles. It has a high base attack, and when it is used as a finishing blow, all active enemies within range are forcibly Toppled, regardless of whether they are suffering from Break, unless they are immune to Topple. This topple effect will only occur if the target enemy is killed by this art. A successful Demon Slayer will have a red gas resembling a face rise from the defeated enemy. Otherwise, it is only a red splash of gas.
