Block Breakers are specialized Combos available for the Longsword and Heavenly Sword in Heavenly Sword.


Block Breakers are utilized by Nariko in order to inflict upon enemies who carry shields in combat. These enemies can not be affected by regular attacks with the Longsword or certain Speed Stance attacks with the Heavenly Sword. Power Stance attacks are automatic Block Breakers, and for some enemies, such as Axemen or Maulmen, Power Stance attacks are the only means of breaking through their shields.
