"Performs a spinning uppercut that launches an opponent into the air."
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Tutorial description

Critical Upper[1] (クリティカルアッパー Kuritikaru Appā) is a rush attack used by Dodoria.


To use the attack, Dodoria simply uppercuts the opponent, knocking them away, while the force of the attack is so great it causes a small whirlwind around the point of the impact, dealing a huge amount of damage.


Dodoria used this attack to land the decisive blow on Tora while executing Bardock's Planet Elite Force in Dragon Ball Z: Bardock - The Father of Goku.

Video Game Appearances

This attack was named in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 where it appears as one of Dodoria's Super Skills. It can also be learned by the Future Warrior by completing School Quest: Lesson 1 of Dodoria's Training.

Interestingly, it is referred to as Power Launch Attack in the plot description of Lesson 1 of Dodoria's Training, despite the skill being listed as Critical Upper in the lesson's basic rewards section.
