Combined Energy Wave (合体光線 Gattai Kōsen, lit. "Combined Light Ray")[2] is a team attack used by many fighters. It is a combination of multiple energy waves.


To use this technique, two or more fighters must fire and combine their waves of energy, increasing the power of the beam.


Krillin and Piccolo perform a team attack against Nappa during their battle at Paprika Wasteland, which they finish with Krillin firing a Kamehameha and Piccolo firing a Makosen. The attack is ineffective on the powerful Saiyan, though.[3]

The Namekians in Tsuno's village fire this attack at Vegeta, but Vegeta emerges from the rocks under which he was sent by the attack and throws them at the Namekians who attacked him using an Explosive Wave.[4]

Goku and Vegeta fire combined energy waves at Super Buu, but he deflects them with his Mystic Shooter.

Goku and Pan performing Combined Energy Wave against Luud

In Dragon Ball GT, Sheela and Gale use this attack on Goku, Trunks, and Pan in an attempt to stop them from invading Don Kee's fortress Goku, but Goku counters the wave with a Kamehameha. Later, Goku and Pan use the technique to destroy Luud. When the past villains escape from Hell, Goten and Trunks combine their energy waves to destroy Android 19 in a manner similar to the Androids' Non-stop Violence technique. While Frieza and Cell fight Goku in Hell in the same arc, the two villains use a combined energy wave in an attempt to kill the Saiyan.
