The "Shining Finger Sword" is one of Domon Kasshu's two special signature moves in the anime Mobile Fighter G Gundam, the other move being the "Erupting Burning Finger". The move is accompanied by an epic barrage of cheesy dialogue, flashing colors, and a heroic soundtrack, making it a popular target of audioswap videos.

The original Mobile Fighter G Gundam, which aired in Japan in 1994, didn't start the audioswap trend. But when the english dubbed version aired in 2002, people started taking notice of the cheesy dialogue, and the hilarity of the name of the special move in general.

Shining Finger Sword

The the ultimate attack of Domon Kasshu's mobile fighter Shining Gundam. While he uses the attack, he yells out the following.

This hand of mine glows with an awesome power!

Its burning grip tells me to defeat you!




Erupting Burning Finger

After Domon Kasshu gains contol of the God Gundam (Burning Gundam in the American versions), he uses a new special attack named "Erupting Burning Finger", which is at least, if not more ridiculous than its predecessor "Shining Finger Sword". This move is also called "Bakunetsu God Finger" in the original japanese audio clips.

This hand of mine is burning red!

It's loud roar tells me to grasp victory!




And now…



When Domon Kasshu comes across an enemy, who is the victim to his brother Kyoji's evil deeds, he says the following phrase, before proceeding to destroy his opponent with Shining Finger Sword. The line has become a popular source of humour, and it's commonly used in the comment section of videos.

This ability to self recover, allowing the deceased Dahall and his Gundam to keep on resurrecting. I'm positive, this guy has aquired abilities of the Dark (Devil) Gundam WITH THE HELP OF KYOJI!!!

According to TvTropes, The Help of Kyoji is an Ascended Meme[8]. In the game Dynasty Warriors: Gundam, the player has the option of having Kyoji and the Devil Gundam as assist units. This makes it possible to overtake a field, or beat an enemy with "The Help of Kyoji".

Examples of Use:
This ability to give inspiring speeches, allowing supporters to haul and his policy to keep on resurrecting. I'm positive! Obama has acquired the oratory abilities of the Dark Lincoln. WITH THE HELP OF KYOJI!!!
I hate all these corny jokes! I'm going to put an end to them… WITH THE HELP OF KYOJI!!!
This Kyoji sounds like a swell guy, he's been helping everyone lately.
