There are three versions to this technique. The first version acts like its lesser counterpart, an energy sphere that has a black core, but now a pink color fitting Black's Rosé state. Just like the Black Power Ball, this version's core turns white when launched and appears to do the same amount of damage as well. The second version is an energy wave capable of pushing back opponents similar to a kiai. The third version is a more powerful version of his Violent Fierce God Slicer ki blade. This version uses teleportation allowing Black to sneak attack the opponent from behind and it emits a huge shockwave powerful enough to make buildings collapse.
Goku Black uses these versions in his first and second fights with Goku. Using the energy wave version, he was able to put Goku on the defensive and was used to initiate Divine Lasso on Goku, knocking him out. The energy blade version was enough to put Goku on the defensive as well, forcing him to dodge, although it missed Goku and shattered the building behind him instead. The first version is first used as part of his Sudden Death Beam counterattack when he dodged Goku's kick. Usually, the first version is often used to combine with God Splitter to create a Combined Black Power Ball strong enough to put the Dragon Team on the defensive and struggle with it.
In the manga, this attack was only used once when Future Trunks was in near defeat after Goku Black's assault. About to use this attack to finish Trunks off, Gowasu and Shin arrived on the scene and took Future Trunks and Future Mai before it was ever launched.
