Galactic Donut (ギャラクティカドーナツ Gyarakutika Dōnatsu, lit. "Galactica Doughnut") is a technique used by Gotenks in his Super Saiyan form.

Gotenks executes this attack by raising his index finger into the air and circling it above his head to create a yellow ring of energy similar to the Destructo Disc, though ring-shaped instead of solid. Once created, he transports the circular energy ring over his opponent, then lowers and homes it on them. This results in the opponent being gripped and trapped within the circular attack.


Gotenks attempts to encircle Super Buu in this attack and slice him in half, but Super Buu manages to break free of the Galactic Donut, much to Gotenks' surprise. Gotenks later uses several Galactic Donuts as part of his Charging Ultra Buu Buu Volleyball technique.[8]

Super Buu (Gotenks absorbed) uses the technique during his battle against Ultimate Gohan, the latter of which manages to break free.[9]

Ultimate Gohan uses this attack to restrain Transformed Moro in order for Super Saiyan Blue Goku to hit him with an Instant Kamehameha.[10]


Video Game Appearances[]

In The Legend, Supersonic Warriors series, and Budokai Tenkaichi series, Gotenks causes it to squeeze on the opponent and then it self-destructs. Also, in Supersonic Warriors 2, Super Saiyan Gotenks uses this attack to trap enemies and then appears above them and fires energy bullets.

The Galactic Donut involves Super Buu in Budokai 2

In the Budokai series, it is one of Gotenks' ultimate attacks in his Super Saiyan and Super Saiyan 3 forms. Gotenks succeeds in capturing his opponent and finishes it off by firing a massive Kamehameha. It is possible this originated from the episode "Majin Buu Transforms" when Super Buu (w/ Gotenks absorbed) prepared to finish off Gohan with a Kamehameha after entrapping him with the Galactic Donut.

In the Raging Blast series, it is one of Super Saiyan Gotenks' Super Attacks.

In Battle of Z, it is a restraint attack.

In Shin Budokai - Another Road, Super Buu (w/ Gotenks absorbed) can also use this attack.

In Dragon Ball Online, the Galactic Donut can be used by Wonder Majins.

In Dokkan Battle, it is the Super Attack of various characters, most notably Super Saiyan Gotenks and Majin Buu (Gotenks) characters.

In Xenoverse, the Galactic Donut is a Super Skill that can be taught to the Future Warrior if Gotenks is their mentor.

In Dragon Ball Fusions, "Big Galactic Donuts" and "Special Galactic Donuts" variants alongside the original attack are used by Gotenks in his Super Saiyan and Super Saiyan 3 forms after fusion with enough ki. Likewise, they are also used by Cissito, Quillin, Kiclee, Waffen, Peppa, and Chapp.

In Xenoverse 2, the Galactic Donut returns as one of Gotenks Super Skills which can be learned by the Future Warrior by completing School Quest: "Lesson 1" of Gotenks' training. Additionally, there is also a variation called Super Donut Volley.

In Dragon Ball Legends, it is Super Saiyan Gotenks' special ability. Using it causes Gotenks to throw a single donut out, if it hits the enemy, it plays a quick animation of the donut going around them and Gotenks causing it to squeeze and explode.

In Kakarot, it is used by Gotenks however it doesn't explode like seen in other media.

In Sparking! Zero, it used by Gotenks in his Super Saiyan form.
