Sweeping Strike [Fighter] Even the follow-through on your attacks is deadly.Prerequisites: Fighter 12th, Power Attack, CleaveBenefit: If you deal a creature enough damage to make it drop from above to below half its maximum hit points, you may make a Cleave attack as though you'd dropped it, following all the normal rules for Cleave. You may not target the same creature that triggered the Cleave attack with the Cleave attack.

If you happen to deal enough damage to both drop a creature below half its maximum hit points and make it drop, technically triggering both this feat and Cleave, you only gain one Cleave attack, not two.

Note: Note that unless they receive healing of some sort, you can only benefit from this feat against a single creature once, as it only functions for the transition from above half to below half (in 4E parlance, in only functions when you first make them bloodied, and it doesn't function if you're not the one to bloody them), not every time you deal them damage that brings them below half.
