Death Cannon (デスキャノン Desu Kyanon) is an Energy Wave used by Frieza in his final form, 100% Full Power, and Golden Frieza forms.


Death Cannon Explosion

The explosion created by the Death Cannon.

Frieza holds one of his hands in front of him with the other hand supporting it (in a manner similar to the Explosive Demon Wave). Then, he fires a large purplish-pink energy wave or energy sphere at the opponent, inflicting a huge amount of damage. The blast creates a huge mushroom cloud explosion on impact and has an electrical aura surrounding the explosion.


Frieza first used this attack in his Third Form to deflect Gohan's Wild Rush Blaster. However, Piccolo deflected it away with a Ki Blast. Frieza uses this attack several times during his battle against Goku on Namek.[5][6] He also uses the technique in his 100% Full Power form, during his battle against Super Saiyan Goku: when Goku moves behind Frieza, Frieza fires the Death Cannon at Goku, which at first sends him back. However, the Saiyan gathers enough strength and flies through the attack without any injury and double-kicks Frieza in the face. Goku then blasts Frieza down to the ground with an energy sphere of his own.[7]

Golden Frieza utilized this technique in a beam struggle with Super Saiyan Blue Goku's God Kamehameha. Later, after powering up to maximum, Golden Frieza used this attack again against Goku, who attempted to hold it back but was overwhelmed and knocked into the ground.[8] Frieza used this technique to kill Elec.[9]
