- This article is about Kid Gohan's technique. For Future Gohan's technique, see Hyper Masenko.
First, Gohan raises his hands up to his sides and charges a yellow energy sphere in each hand. He then puts his hands forward and fires a barrage of yellow energy waves against the opponent, inflicting a massive amount of damage.
Gohan uses this attack during the battle against Frieza in his second form. After witnessing Frieza's brutal attack on his friend Krillin, Gohan's rage explodes and he attacks Frieza with a barrage of punches and kicks. Then, he fires a powerful charged Ki Blast at Frieza, which the tyrant quickly blocks. When Frieza opens his eyes after successfully blocking Gohan's attack, Gohan smacks another blast right on to Frieza's face, knocking the tyrant down to the ground. Gohan then blasts Frieza with the Gekiretsu Madan, creating a massive dome of energy where Frieza is laying. Gohan then fires his Masendan down at the energy dome, causing it to explode and injuring Frieza quite a bit.
