Ichigo using Mugetsu.
|Effect||Ichigo enters Getsuga and creates dark veils of Reiatsu on the ground that travel forward to damage opponents.|
When performed, Ichigo holds Zangetsu out says, "終わりだ", and becomes Getsuga. He creates a blade of black Reiatsu in his hand and lifts it, cutting off the music and saying, "無月", before he swings it down. When used on the ground, this will create tall dark veils of Reiatsu on the ground that each deal 30% damage and strong knockback to opponents hit. When used in midair, or when the dark veils reach a ledge, this will instead create a large black crescent-shaped projectile similar to Getsuga Tenshō that slowly travels forward. Opponents hit by this projectile are dealt 40% damage with incredible knockback. Both the dark veils and the projectile are able to one-hit KO under many circumstances.
Shortly after swinging his sword, the music will return (restarting from the beginning) and Ichigo will revert to his regular form and briefly fall to the ground in pain, ending the move.
Mugetsu is a technique Ichigo uses in Bleach in conjunction with Saigo no Getsuga Tenshō (最後の月牙天衝), a technique in which Ichigo becomes the Getsuga itself. Once transformed, Ichigo can use Mugetsu by generating and then swinging a blade of deep black Reiatsu toward his opponent, which causes a massive veil of black Reiatsu to erupt upwards towards them, heavily damaging them. This also envelops them so that even sound cannot be heard during this technique, which is referenced in SSF2 by how the music stops playing upon its use. Afterwards, the Reiatsu continues to rise before finally dissipating.
Mugetsu is one of the most powerful techniques to be used in Bleach. However, shortly after using it, Ichigo loses all of his Shinigami powers and feels intense pain. Because of this, Ichigo has only been able to use it once, which he did against Sōsuke Aizen in chapter 421 of the manga Bleach, as well as episode 309, "Fierce Fighting Conclusion! Release, the Final Getsuga Tenshō!", of the anime.
- Prior to Beta 1.2, Ichigo's Final Smash was instead a Transformation Final Smash called Bankai Ichigo.
