Zankourin (斬光輪 lit. "Slashing Light Ring"), is a special technique that Zero learns after defeating Ride Boarski in Mega Man X7. By pressing the special attack button while running, Zero will swipe his saber creating an energy wheel that spins across the ground, passing over obstacles and through enemies. However, like X and Axl's Moving Wheel, only one wheel can be on screen at a time.

This attack is Snipe Anteator's weakness.

Other media

Zero used Zankourin in Wind Crowrang's stage in Rockman X7 4Koma Manga Kingdom, accidentally breaking the aircraft he was standing on. To escape the fall, he switched places with Axl.
