"Prepare to join this filthy orb into oblivion!"
Vegeta before firing the Galick Gun in "An All-Out Kamehame-Ha! Vegeta's Terrible Transformation!"

Galick Gun (ギャリック砲 Gyarikku Hō) is an Energy Wave that is one of Vegeta's signature attacks, similar to the Kamehameha.

Overview[]

To utilize it, Vegeta curls his fingers and places both his hands together at chest level facing the same direction (so that the palm of one hand is on the back of the other). Then, once enough ki is gathered, he shouts "Galick Gun!" (or in the Japanese version, "Galick Hō!") and thrusts both hands forward to fire a powerful blast of energy. The result is a powerful, huge, fuchsia-colored ki beam that emanates from his hands and body. It is capable of destroying large planets if enough power is put into it.

Usage and Power[]

Super Saiyan Vegeta fires the Galick Gun at Baby Gohan

Vegeta uses this move against Goku in their first fight during the Vegeta Saga. When Goku counters the Galick Gun with a x3 Kaio-ken Kamehameha, Vegeta notes that the two attacks are evenly matched. Eventually, Goku's Kamehameha outmatches it by using a x4 Kaio-ken.

Vegeta uses a Galick Gun similar to the Final Burst Cannon during the battle against Frieza in his second form. While Frieza attacks Gohan, Vegeta fires an energy blast at Frieza and then he pulls his hands back to his sides and charges energy in each hand, followed by firing one large Galick Gun wave, creating a huge explosion. However, as the smoke clears, Frieza is unharmed and unfazed by the attack, much to Vegeta's shock.

Much later, Semi-Perfect Cell uses this attack against Vegeta in his Super Saiyan Second Grade form, to no effect.[10]

During Vegito's fight against Super Buu after he absorbed Gohan, Buu uses Gotenks' Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack with the Ghost Buus placing their hands over their heads as if they were preparing a Masenko, but instead say "Galick Gun" in the Funimation dub.

Vegeta Galick Hoes Beerus

Vegeta fires his Furious Galick Gun at Beerus

In Dragon Ball Super, when Beerus gets angry at being sprayed by Trunks' water gun, Vegeta dives into the ocean to grab a large octopus. In order to kill and cook the octopus he shoots it with a Galick Gun after throwing it into the air, the resulting attack also creating a firework effect. Later, after ongoing a furious mutation, Vegeta uses a fully charged version of the Galick Gun in his fight with Beerus, doing no true damage but managing to shock the God of Destruction with his power-up.

Vegeta prepares a Galick Gun against Magetta

Super Saiyan Vegeta uses a Galick Gun against Auta Magetta in an attempt to defeat the Metalman, however it proves ineffective and Magetta overwhelms it with his lava spit.

Cabba is shown being able to use the technique against Vegeta, who counters the attack with a Galick Gun of his own, leading to a short Energy Clash. Duplicate Vegeta, a direct copy of Vegeta from the Commeson weapon, used this technique to demonstrate his power.

Future Trunks in his Super Saiyan Rage form is shown also able to use it in the second rematch against Goku Black and Future Zamasu causing to revert him back to Super Saiyan form. Later, Future Trunks uses it to counter Fused Zamasu's Holy Wrath. Then Vegeta combines his own Galick Gun with Future Trunks' Galick Gun, creating a Father-Son Galick Gun. Later, against Infinite Zamasu, Goku charges a Kamehameha, Future Trunks charges a Galick Gun, Vegeta charges a Final Flash, and the three Saiyans combine their attacks into one and fire it at the sky, but the attacks are easily nullified.

In the Tournament of Power, Vegeta uses the Galick Gun to eliminate Prum and Dr. Rota at the same time, after being annoyed by Rota's attempted reveal of his ability. It is also used against Jiren after Vegeta was knocked back, though the powerful Pride Trooper was unaffected.

In Dragon Ball GT, Super Saiyan Vegeta uses a blue colored Galick Gun in a Energy Clash against Baby Gohan. The blue Galick Gun is named Full Force Impact in the Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game.

Video Game Appearances[]

In Super Saiya Densetsu, Vegeta uses a crimson Galick Gun in his Super Saiyan form in the secret boss fight against him.

In Budokai 22, Super Buu can use Galick Gun after absorbing Vegeta.

In Supersonic Warriors, Vegeta performs it like in the anime.

In Supersonic Warriors 2, Vegeta performs Galick Gun by throwing his hand backwards then forwards like Final Burst Cannon.

In Burst Limit, Vegeta uses a red/pink colored Galick Gun in his base form.

Super Saiyan 3 Vegeta charges the Galick Gun in Raging Blast

In the Raging Blast series, Vegeta uses a crimson-colored Galick Gun as his Ultimate Blast in his Super Saiyan 3 form.

In Dragon Ball Online, Vegeta uses Galick Gun in a cutscene.

In Xenoverse, it is one of Vegeta's super skills and can be taught to the Future Warrior if they choose Vegeta as a master. It is specifically mentioned as being 'weaker' than the Kamehameha, however, it requires less time to charge, as it lacks an 'incantation'. There is also a Z-Soul called "I'll turn you and your planet into space dust!", that can increase the power of the Galick Gun, though the user will lose a large amount of health whenever the skill is used. The Galick Gun also has a stronger counterpart, which appears as DLC, the Galick Beam Cannon which was developed by Mira.

In Dokkan Battle, it is one of Vegeta's super attacks.

In Dragon Ball Fusions, Trunks, Bulla, Gotenks, EX Gotenks, EX Gohanks, EX Trunks, Bulpan, EX Gogeta, Pinita, Vegenks, and Yamta can use it as one of their Special Moves. It can also be used by Pinich and Tekka if Saiyan is their selected race. Additionally, Trunks can also learn two stronger variations, Super Galick Gun and Hyper Galick Gun. It can also be learned by the Dragon Ball Super incarnation of Future Trunks along with Super Galick Gun and Hyper Galick Gun. There is also a variation called Galick Kamehameha that can be used by EX Gogeta and EX Gotenks.

In Xenoverse 2, it returns as one of Vegeta's Super Skills which can be learned by the Future Warrior by completing Vegeta's initiation test to train under Vegeta as a master. The Galick Gun's attacking stance also appears as an unlockable Emote Option. Additionally, there is a stronger version called the Earth Splitting Galick Gun which appears as one of Vegeta's Super Skills and can be unlocked randomly by the Future Warrior in "Parallel Quest 11: Burst Open and Mix!". Interestingly, during the Future Warrior's training under Goku, he tells them that Vegeta mentioned how similar his Galick Gun is to the Kamehameha, causing Goku to surmise that he could learn to use the Galick Gun as well, though he admits Vegeta would probably be furious if he did. After the 1.09.00 Update, Galick Gun can be added to Gotenks' custom skillset after purchasing it in Partner Customization. Additionally, three Galick Gun-based skills can be added to Perfect Cell's custom skillset, Galick Gun, Earth Splitting Galick Gun, and Super Galick Gun. Earth Splitting Galick Gun can also be added to Vegeta's custom skillset while Super Galick Gun and Galick Gun are available by default.

In FighterZ, it is a Super attack used by both SSGSS Vegeta and base form/Saiyan Saga Vegeta, and both are used in nonstandard ways compared to other beam supers in the game. SSGSS Vegeta fires his Galick Gun diagonally upward as an anti-air super, while base Vegeta always jumps into the air (or flies further upward if he is already airborne) and fires his Galick Gun diagonally downward. Galick Gun is also used by base Vegeta in the Dramatic Finish between him and base Goku, which recreates the famous beam struggle between Vegeta's Galick Gun and Goku's Kaio-ken Kamehameha. SSGSS Gogeta can also utilize the Galick Gun as his Down Special Attack.

In World Mission, the SH4-29 Vegeta card has a CAA Super Ability Subspace Summon T called Royal Family Galick Gun T which allows SSGSS Vegeta to summon his brother and father to perform the Royal Family Galick Gun.

Trivia[]

  • In keeping with the pun on vegetables, the attack's name is derived from the English "garlic" (spelled "gaarikku").
  • In the 4Kids version of Dragon Ball Z Kai, this attack is renamed "Galick Blast", similar to the Spirit Bomb being renamed "Spirit Blast". This is because of the name being similar to a firearm.
  • Similar to how Kamehameha is associated with members of the Son family, the Galick Gun is associated with members of the House of Vegeta. Interestingly, while the Original Kamehameha was invented the Earthling Master Roshi (with the Super Kamehameha & several other variations being invented by Goku), Vegeta's Galick Gun was apparently invented by the Saiyan Prince.
