Burning Storm (バーニングストーム Bāningu Sutōmu) is a one-handed rapid-fired version of the Buster Cannon used by Future Trunks.


First, Future Trunks places his hands forward at a 90 degree angle and charges a blue energy sphere. Then, he fires a barrage of energy spheres from the energy sphere at the opponent, inflicting a great deal of damage.



Present Trunks charges a Burning Storm

Future Trunks uses this attack when he and Krillin travel down into Dr. Gero's Laboratory to find and destroy Present Cell. While looking around the lab, Future Trunks discovers the blueprint plans for Android 17 and takes them in order to discover his weak spot. Satisfied with what he has obtained, Future Trunks and Krillin destroy Dr. Gero's lab and his supercomputer containing the Cell embryo, blowing the entire lab to bits. Just prior to blowing up the supercomputer, Future Trunks also made sure to tell the supercomputer that what he was about to do was payback for all the suffering the supercomputer caused in his future.

In Dragon Ball GT, Trunks charges this technique to attack Baby while on planet Pital, but Baby uses an Explosive Wave to defend himself.

Film Appearance[]

In Dragon Ball Z: Super Android 13!, Future Trunks quickly attacks Android 14 with an attack similar to the Burning Storm.

In Dragon Ball Z: Bio-Broly, Trunks uses a similar attack in combination with Goten's energy wave in the Mei Queen Castle.

Video Game Appearances[]

Burning Storm was named in the Budokai Tenkaichi series, where it appears as one of Future Trunks' (Sword) Blast 2 attacks in his base and Super Saiyan forms, and in the Raging Blast series as one of Trunks' (Sword) Super Attacks. Kid Trunks has a similar attack in the Butōden series; it is notably one of his Meteor Attacks in Dragon Ball Z: Shin Butōden. The God Breaker he uses in his Super Saiyan form is similar to a Burning Storm.

"A manually aimed Ki volley followed by a beam. The Ki Blasts have homing properties that make it easy to connect hits. Can be used against multiple enemies."
Burning Storm Super Attack description in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot

In Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, it appears as one of Future Trunks' learnable Super Attacks. However in this game it is depicted as ki blast volley fired from both hands which are held over his head as he charges energy for each subsequent blast, followed by a Burning Attack-style energy wave. Additionally during the ki blast volley portion, the Ki Blasts have homing properties that make it easier to connect hits on enemies within the manually aimed targeting reticle and as a result can be used against multiple enemies. However the energy wave portion has no homing properties.
