Crusher Ball (クラッシャーボール Kurasshā Bōru) is an Energy Sphere that is Jeice's signature attack.[8]

Overview[]

JeicesCrusherBall

The Crusher Ball

As he announces the attack name, Jeice focuses an extreme amount of energy in his raised left hand, palm upward, before shaping it into a red energy sphere. Then, Jeice spikes it downwards with his open right hand (much like a volleyball), damaging his opponent.

Usage[]

Jeice was a pitcher in the Galactic Little League during his childhood, and it is there that he developed the Crusher Ball as his special technique.[9]

Jeice uses this attack once while fighting Goku on Namek. After swiftly evading Burter and Jeice's previous attacks, Burter suggests that Jeice uses the Crusher Ball as a distraction so Goku can leave his guard down. Jeice does so, however, Goku easily deflects the attack as if it were a beach ball.

Trivia[]

  • During the time Funimation started dubbing the series, it was called "Fire Ball". This was changed in the redub.
  • In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, when used by a Future Warrior with Male Voice Option 8 (which is actually the voice of Curtis Arnott/Takahata101, voice of TeamFourStar's Nappa from the Dragon Ball Z: Abridged online parody series) he will shout Space Australia which is both an in-joke and reference to DBZ: Abridged, as TFS's Jeice is from Space Australia (which is Australia in Space) which is parody of Jeice's Australian accent in the Funimation dub (TFS Jeice also has an Australian accent due to him being Space Australian).
  • Despite Jeice developing the Crusher Ball based on his time in the Galactic Little League, the way he performs the Crusher Ball is more akin to volleyball than baseball.
