Slash Claw (スラッシュクロー Surasshu Kurō) is Slash Man's special weapon. It allows Mega Man to swing his arm to generate a crescent-shaped beam of energy straight forward. It is a short range weapon, but the slashes are very effective against smaller enemies. Hitting Spring Man with this weapon causes him to fall to pieces and prevents him from using his Wild Coil.

In Mega Man 10, the Weapons Archive uses the Slash Claw when it uploads Slash Man's data file.

Mega Man using Slash Claw in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U.

The Slash Claw is used by Mega Man in the fighting game, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U as his back aerial attack. Mega Man turns around and quickly slashes opponents behind him with it, hitting them three times and inflicting 5% in the first hit, 4% in the second and 3% in the third, for a total of 11% if all hits land on the opponent. The last hit sends opponents back. One of Mega Man's alternate color swaps in this game also resembles his color swap for the Slash Claw in Mega Man 7.
