Assault! (突撃 Totsugeki)[11][12][13][14] is a variation of Headbutt used by Goten.


First, Goten charges at the opponent and punches them away. Then, he flies up into the air and charges down at the opponent head-first at top speed. When the opponent dodges, Goten blasts the ground with an energy sphere to propel himself towards the opponent's direction to knock them away with a headbutt, using his falling speed to inflict severe damage.[1]



Goten propels himself after Trunks with a Ki Blast

Goten uses this attack during his match against Trunks at the 25th World Martial Arts Tournament. After exchanging blows and getting knocked back by Goten, Trunks fires an Energy Wave at Goten. Goten flies high up into the air to avoid the attack and charges down at Trunks with the "Assault!" rush. A shocked Trunks dodges the attack by transforming into a Super Saiyan and blasting Goten out of bounds, winning the match.[15]

In the Xenoverse series, Charge is performed much like how it is depicted being used by Goten in the manga, specifically in how the handstand blast is performed. The attack can also deliver damage even during the jump & downward dive portions in addition to the final charge. If performed in the air or a groundless stage while locked-on, the final charge will also home in on opponent causing the user to travel in an upwards trajectory.
