El Directo (巨人の一撃 (エル・ディレクト), eru direkuto; Spanish for "The Direct", Japanese for "One Strike of the Giant"; Viz "Giant's Strike") is a technique used by Yasutora Sado while utilizing the second form of his Fullbring, Brazo Derecha de Gigante.


As the end of the extension on Sado's shoulder opens up and charges up spiritual energy, resembling the flaming exhaust from a car engine, Sado releases a huge blast of spiritual energy. Sado can use this energy to augment his punches or fire it as a concentrated medium to long-range attack.[1][2]
