Heat Armor is a signature technique used by Nuova Shenron.


The user raises their temperature to a point where their body starts to glow a bright reddish orange, functioning as energy shield that can also harm an attacking opponent. The power is so immense that it is past the hotness of the Sun, around the temperature of a lightning bolt.


Omega Shenron with a Heat Armor

Omega Shenron used this technique after absorbing the seven Dragon Balls, specifically due to Nuova Shenron's Four-Star Dragon Ball. It easily harmed Goku in his Super Saiyan 4 form.


  • Absolute Zero - Eis Shenron's technique where he abruptly lowers his body temperature to below freezing, making him so cold to the touch he can freeze any opponent that touches him. Basically it is Eis Shenron's alternate version of the technique that works in an opposite manner, as the user lowers their body temperature to freeze instead of raising it to burn.
  • Arcane of the Shadow Dragons - A technique where Omega Shenron rushes towards the opponent with Heat Armor (which he performs like an Explosive Wave), then fires a Super Ice Ray, that freezes the opponent in place, then rises up in the air to perform Whirlwind Spin which lifts the frozen opponent up into the air where he finishes them off with Dragon Thunder which causes the opponent to be shocked by a bolt of lightning. It appears in Dragon Ball Legends as the Ultimate Move Arts for Omega Shenron (DBL-EVT-38U).

Video Game Appearances

In the Budokai Tenkaichi series, the technique is a Blast 1 called Explosive Wave. Nuova Shenron also uses this technique in the arcade game Dragon Ball Z: W Bakuretsu Impact.

"Abruptly raise your body temperature and touch enemy to set them on fire."
