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, any active enemies, which are not immune to topple, are forced into a Toppled state. 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. In all other cases, it will not inflict Topple to enemies suffering from Break.
