Ultimate Cleave [General, Fighter]

You can transfer some of the damage you inflict on a powerful blow to your next cleave attack.
Prerequisite: Str 13, Power Attack, Cleave, Base attack bonus +6
Benefit: Once per round when using your Cleave or Great Cleave feats, all damage inflicted beyond that needed to drop your opponent is gained as a damage bonus on your extra cleave attack. This damage bonus only applies against the opponent targeted by your extra cleave attack and is lost if this attack misses.

Bron, a 6th level dwarven fighter with Cleave, Great Cleave and Ultimate Cleave, is in combat with 3 goblins (each with 6 hit points). Bron hits on his first attack, inflicts 12 points of damage and reduces the first goblin to -6 hit points, triggering a cleave attack. Since he has Ultimate Cleave, he disembowels the first goblin and gains a +5 damage bonus on his cleave attack (6-1 = 5). He slays the second goblin with this attack, triggering another cleave attack, but does not gain an additional damage bonus because he's already used Ultimate Cleave that round.
