The user beats their chest with their fists wildly to intimidate their opponent.
This technique was used by Kid Buu during his confrontation with Super Saiyan 3 Goku during the Kid Buu Saga. The technique demonstrates how wild and unpredictable Kid Buu is as he continues to pound his chest even after being sent flying by a kick from Goku.
Video Game Appearances
Drumming was named in Dragon Ball Legends where it appears as the Special Quirk Skill Arts for Buu: Kid (DBL17-06S) which can reduce enemy Ki by 30. Additionally 1-3 of the following effects will occur randomly: 15% to Damage inflicted for 10 timer counts, 15% to Damage inflicted for 10 timer counts, 15% to Damage inflicted for 10 timer counts. Additionally Legends Limited Buu: Kid (DBL32-02S) does the Drumming gesture at the beginning of his Ultimate Move Arts Destruction Blaster and during its Legendary Finish animation after hitting his opponent with Planet Burst.
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse and Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, the Drumming animation is used after the user of Quick Sleep wakes up. Additionally drumming often appears in games as a simple animation for Kid Buu and Pure Majins in both Xenoverse 2 and Dragon Ball Online. Clone Buus are also shown to inherit the Drumming gesture in Dragon Ball FighterZ.
- This technique is comparable to the chest pounding gesture used by certain species of primate (such as Gorillas and even humans).
- It seems this behavior is somewhat instinctual for Pure Majins even those who retain their "heart" (original personality).
