"Hahahaha...Alright, Goku! If that's what you want, I won't hold back! It's no secret I wanted you dead for a long time - I won't pass up this chance!"
Piccolo in "A Life or Death Battle! Goku and Piccolo's Desperate Attack!"

Full-Nelson Special Beam Cannon (羽交い締め魔貫光殺砲 Hagaijime Makankōsappō, lit. "Pinioning: Demon's Penetrating, Killing Light Gun")[2] is a team attack used by Goku and Piccolo.


Piccolo says, "sorry to keep you waiting" and fires his Special Beam Cannon at the opponent. Then, Goku sneaks up behind the opponent and puts them in a Full-Nelson so they cannot escape. Finally, as the opponent tries to escape Goku's full nelson, the Special Beam Cannon impales both the opponent and Goku, inflicting a huge amount of damage.



Piccolo charging the Special Beam Cannon

Goku and Piccolo used this attack to defeat the Saiyan invader, Raditz. Enraged at Raditz for torturing his father, Gohan broke out of the Saiyan space pod and attacked Raditz with a powerful headbutt, seriously injuring him. With Raditz injured and stunned, Goku snuck up on him and encouraged Piccolo to attack him, anticipating that Raditz would remove his own tail if he tried to grab it again. Piccolo struck Raditz with the Full-Nelson Special Beam Cannon, killing him and Goku in the process. Before dying, Raditz revealed that two more powerful Saiyans would arrive on Earth in one year. Angry at Raditz's arrogance and taunts, Piccolo finished him off.[3]

Raditz defeated by Goku and Piccolo's Full Nelson Special Beam Cannon in Broly

In Dragon Ball Super: Broly, when Goku mentions to Broly how a lot has happened on Earth, a flashback shows the scene when Raditz was defeated by Goku and Piccolo's Full-Nelson Special Beam Cannon.

Video Game Appearances[]

In Super Saiya Densetsu, Legendary Super Warriors, and Budokai, the technique is shown in cutscenes.

In Supersonic Warriors cutscene, during Piccolo's what-if story, it is shown being used by both Goku and Piccolo against Perfect Cell during the Cell Games. The attack is great enough in reverting Perfect Cell into his Semi-Perfect form, before Piccolo finishes off the evil Android but at the cost of Goku's life.

In the Raging Blast series, it is named Full-Nelson Special Beam Cannon where it is a team Super Attack used by Piccolo with Goku.

In Dragon Ball Legends, it appears as the Legendary Finish for the Special Beam Cannon Special Move Arts of Legends Limited Piccolo (DBL22-03S) in his Agile Style "transformation". If his Special Beam Cannon Special Move Arts is capable of KOing the final enemy in a match, it turns into the Full-Nelson Special Beam Cannon Legendary Finish with Goku appearing to put said enemy in a Full-Nelson before shouting Piccolo to "DO IT!" causing Piccolo to fire the Special Beam Cannon at both of them as Goku requested.


  • In Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2, the image of the Full-Nelson Special Beam Cannon has the Special Beam Cannon with a black/pink color instead of the normal white/yellow color.
  • This technique resulted in the deaths of both Bardock and Gine's only children: Raditz & Kakarot, though their youngest son was later revived by a wish to Shenron. It is one of two techniques to have actually managed to kill Goku, the other being Semi-Perfect Cell's Unforgivable!, though in both cases Goku chose to sacrifice his life to both techniques.
  • In the Tournament of Power, Gohan and Frieza use a similar technique to not only prevent Dyspo from using his Super Maximum Light Speed Mode but to knock him and Gohan out of bounds.
  • The gore resulting from the attack when it hit Goku and Raditz was toned down in Dragon Ball Z Kai.
  • A similar technique was later used to finish off Cell Max in Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, although in this case, both attackers survived (due to the Special Beam Cannon portion being aimed at Cell Max's head).
