Lacerate is a swordsman skill in Lucid Adventure. It was created by the God of Lucid Adventure, Han Gun-Jae. It is the true and complete form of Moonlight Slash.[1]



Input Command: The input command is: ↑ ↓ + (Cancel while slashing) + ↑ → ↘ ↑ ↓.[2]

Stat Requirement: The player requires a very high intelligence stat to use this skill.[2]

It is the the true and complete form of the Moonlight Slash skill.To perform Lacerate with a sword, the user gets into a stance, their hair and clothing start to rise like the wind is blowing them upwards, and then the user lunges forward slashing the target. Unlike its imitation, Moonlight Slash, Lacerate(節) cleanly cuts through the target and doesn't allow them to regenerate. [1]

The difficult Input Command and the high Intelligence stat requirement make this skill extremely difficult to use. Novelist Han was able to use this skill because he is one of the forms of Han Gun-Jae, The Creator of Lucid Adventure.[3] Hardcore Leveling Warrior was only able to use this skill after returning back to his Rank No.1 Form, which made him and All-Stat and equipped him with the Golden Armour Set.[4]

When Lacerate(節) was used by Novelist Han, the skill had enough force to split the clouds in the sky, destroy the twisted rocks in the skills pathway and negate a Lucky Coin-buffed undead Monster's instant regeneration.[1]

Equipping both Sword of the Knights and +16 Hero's Sword, The Rank No.1 Hardcore Leveling Warrior executed Lacerate(節) on the Nightmarized Majin Light. The attack power of the skill so high, that is was strong enough to destroy both Nightmare Light and completely overwhelm his Black Nightmare Dragon attacks, a skill that was able to destroy God's Arena which should not have been possible for a mortal according to God of Combat.[4][5] The force of the skill was so powerful that despite Hardcore Leveling Warrior being several miles above the Tomb of Swords, the skill's after effects was able to illuminate the whole Tomb of Swords.[5] Light's body had to be stitched back together and treated weekly and 14 years later (Lucid Adventure time), Light's body still has not fully recovered from the effects of Hardcore Leveling Warrior's Lacerate(節).[6][7]


The incomplete version of Lacerate(節). This version is used when the intelligence is not quite high enough and the skill command is not completely understood and entered correctly. The destructive capability of the skill is still very high as Hardcore Leveling Warrior was able to split a 'Dark Warrior's Helmet Mode - Lu Bu' in half despite the latter being buffed by a Nightmare tool. The skill can also be used with bare hands and without a sword-like weapon.

In Season 2, The Best Swordsman used his own version of Lacerate(切) and called it 'Master's Sword - Lacerate(節)' (명장의 검 - 절(切)). He was only able to use this skill after awakening 50% of his personal attribute.

Translation Issues (Naver vs. Line Versions)

There are two versions of Lacerate in the series, The true form: 'Lacerate(節)' and the incomplete form 'Lacerate(切)'. '節' literally translates to 'incision'; 'section'. '切' literally can mean 'to cut; to slice; to carve; to mince' with a knife; it can also be translated to 'to cut off'; 'to disconnect'.

The complete version were correctly written as 'Lacerate(節)' by Line Webtoon in Episode 63 and Episode 167.

In the Line Webtoon translation, Lacerate(切) is not written and only appears as 'Lacerate' in Episode 86, Episode 92 and Season 2 Episode 14. This led to the English readers to not even be aware of the difference between the complete and incomplete versions. As of yet, there has not been an explanation by Line Webtoon for the omission of the '切' hanja.
