Frieza charges at the opponent to impale them in the chest with one of his horns. Next, he shifts his head up and down, further injuring the opponent and causing more blood to leak out of them. Finally, Frieza throws the opponent off his horn down to the ground.
Usage and Power
Frieza uses this attack during his battle against Gohan, Krillin and Vegeta on Namek. After blasting everyone away with a huge shockwave blast, Frieza takes a moment to decide who should die first, and then flies up and attempts to impale Dende, who is being carried by Krillin. Although Krillin throws Dende out of the way, Frieza attacks Krillin with the Death Fork and throws him, bringing him near death and throwing him down deep into the sea. While Gohan then furiously attacks Frieza, Dende rushes to retrieve Krillin and heals back to health, who then attacks Frieza with a Destructo Disc.
- HAIL Frieza - A variation where after using Death Fork, Frieza throws the victim off his horn and fires a Punishing Blaster at them as a coup de grace.
Video Game Appearances
The technique appears in a cutscene in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai. The attack appears in the Budokai Tenkaichi series, Raging Blast series, and Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi as the first part of the "HAIL Frieza" rush. The rush's horn impalement was named Death Fork in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z.
- In the manga, anime, and Budokai Tenkaichi series, the person is impaled by Frieza's left horn. In the Raging Blast series, the person is erroneously impaled by Frieza's right horn.
