Living End (十字落とし (リビング・エンド), Ribingu Endo; Literally meaning "Cross Drop") is a close-range offensive technique used by Sid Barrett.


With a grave stone, the user leaps towards his intended target and uses the momentum of the fall and full extent of their physical strength to slam the object's base into his opponent's body with a tremendous amount of force. The attack still results in the creation of a towering cross of energy upon impact. The force of this collision is such, that if the blow actually connects with the ground, an enormous crater will be left in its wake.[1]


  • In its first appearance in Chapter 1, the phrase "Living End" includes with it the phrase "juuji atoshi," which means "cross slam," [2] much like Sid's tombstone.
