Bandage Throw (包帯投げ Hōtai Nage[1]) is a technique used by Ghastel and Bandages the Mummy.



Ghastel throws bandages to attack Goku

Ghastel attacks his opponent throwing the tough bandages that surround him, while Bandages throws his bandages either to hang onto platforms/edges to throw himself back onto a platform or to squeeze an opponent, making them unable to move, and left open for attacks.


Ghastel uses the technique in his battles against Krillin and Goku in the Devil's Castle.[2]

Bandages uses the technique in his battles against Yamcha and Goku, once almost falling into the acid bath below the Devil's Toilet and once tries to use it to squeeze Goku, however after a bit of a struggle, Goku manages to escape.[3]

Video Game Appearances

The mummies in Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury use this move. Totenhotep also uses this attack, with a barrage multi-directional version as well.

Bandages used this technique in Dragon Ball: Origins 2.

Jiku uses this during the story of Dragon Ball Z Gaiden: Saiyajin Zetsumetsu Keikaku in order to make a girl look like a mummy and prevent her from leaving the pyramid they were in.
