Explosive Breath Cannon (爆裂魔口砲 Bakuretsu Makōhō) is a Rush Attack used by Piccolo.


First, Piccolo charges at the opponent and elbows them in their stomach before kicking them up into the air. Then, he flies after the opponent and double axe-handle punches them down to the ground, where he teleports beside them and grabs their arm. Finally, Piccolo punches the opponent in their stomach and throws them in the air before blasting them with a yellow Mouth Energy Wave, inflicting a huge amount of damage.


Piccolo appears to use the Mouth Energy Wave part of this attack during his battle with Goku at the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament.
