¬ Upon first coming across Dietrich and witnessing her fight against an awakened being, Deneve notes Dietrich’s skill and tact in using the body of the enemy as a way to catapult herself above him, gaining a great vantage point before slicing him in half.

Following this meeting, Dietrich displays a pattern of high jumps, whether she is boosted up by a fellow warrior or utilizing her surroundings, in order to gain a literal upperhand against her opponents.

Fans have dubbed this technique of Dietrich’s as “Sky Sword.”
