The user shoots a bolt of electricity from their antennae or fingers to shock the opponent, stunning them.
This is first used in the Dragon Ball anime when Goku invades Muscle Tower, one of the main bases of the Red Ribbon Army, and faces off against Buyon. The monster uses this attack to daze Goku, allowing Buyon the chance to try and swallow him, though Goku quickly escapes from the creature's mouth.
Spike the Devil Man used this technique against Goku.
It is next seen during the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament in which it is used by Piccolo. After Goku hits Piccolo with a double punch driven by a Feet Kamehameha, Piccolo quickly retaliates with the electric blast. Goku is sent crashing to the ground and left vulnerable to a follow-up attack, though it is intervened and blocked by Kami.
Beerus and Champa used technique for Tournament of Destroyers. Piccolo uses this technique while charging his Special Beam Cannon against Frost in order to stall him long enough. Goku states that he hasn't seen this technique in a while.
The Gatchans use this technique in the Dr. Slump series, using it for the first time in the chapter "Kids Gone Wild", and later against Ogre-king Gyaska, Dodongadon, and again against the vacuum worker in "Vacuum 1982".
