A Grenade (砲弾 Hōdan) is a hand-held explosive weapon triggered by the pull of a pin.



Mercenary Tao using a grenade

In Dragon Ball, Mercenary Tao attempts to kill Goku by throwing a grenade at the young Saiyan. After it is thrown, Tao jumps into the air to avoid the explosion, but Goku kicks it up into the air, and it explodes almost directly in front of Tao.

Mr. Satan also tried to use Grenade's and other explosives disguised as a video game in an attempt to defeat Majin Buu, but they all failed to kill or even faze him (in fact Buu enjoyed them).

Grenades are also presumably used by Earth's Military, as well as the Red Ribbon Army (as seen in Dragon Ball: Origins 2).

Video Game Appearances

In video games, grenades are most often used by Mr. Satan.

In Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Battle 22 and Dragon Ball Z: Shin Butōden, as he cannot use Ki Blasts, Mr. Satan instead throws grenades. In the Budokai Tenkaichi series, both Mercenary Tao and Mr. Satan grenades as a charged-ki attacks (Mr. Satan's still uses them in place of ki blasts).

As a support-type character in Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors 2, Mr. Satan throws volley of grenades at the fighter's opponent.

In Super Dragon Ball Z, Cyborg Frieza uses grenades that are attached to his waist and is also able to fire more powerful ones out of his rocket launcher.

In Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans RR Deserters use grenades.
