Glaive Rush (Japanese: きょけんとつげき Giant Sword Assault) is a damage-dealing Dragon-type move introduced in Generation IX. It is the signature move of Baxcalibur.


Glaive Rush inflicts damage. If the move hits, until the next time the user acts, any attacks directed at the user (including OHKO moves) deal double the damage (if applicable) and bypass accuracy and evasion checks to always hit. The effect ends if a different move is used.
