Within the world of «Aunkai» of «Project Alicization», «Sword Skills» (剣技ソードスキル, KengiSōdo Sukiru?) are more commonly known as «Secret Art Finishing Moves» (秘術の得意技, Hijutsu no Tokuiwaza?) or just simply, «Secret Maneuvers» (秘術, Hijutsu?). From an outside view, they are the combat movements that are assisted by the system, however, most Aunkai residents believe that secret maneuvers are abilities granted to them by their gods.

Most secret maneuvers are carbon copies of sword skills existing in «[[w:c:swordartonline:Sword Art Online|]]» but with different names depending on the 'sword style' that it is based in. Also, the number of hits in a secret maneuver is based on the wielder's «Object Control Authority» with higher authorities equalling the possibility of attaining higher hit counts. It can also be influenced by the weapon itself, it's «Priority».
