"It is impossible to perform a back slice against fully armored enemies that move swiftly in combat."
Hero's Shade

The Helm Splitter is a Hidden Skill from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. It is the fourth Hidden Skill learned and combines excellent body control with the Shield Attack. It is particularly useful against opponents who wear heavy armor but move too quickly for the Back Slice to be implemented effectively. To execute the Helm Splitter, Link must successfully perform a Shield Attack and do a jump attack, striking the enemy in the head and landing behind it. This attack, like the Back Slice, is similar to the jump Parry from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.

This technique, along with the Shield Attack and Back Slice, is effective against armored enemies such as Darknuts.
