Heat Armor is a 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 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 - Used by Eis Shenron in Xenoverse.
  • 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).

In the Budokai Tenkaichi series, the technique is a Blast 1 named Explosive Wave.

In Xenoverse, as part of the GT Pack 2 DLC, it is named Dragon Burn and is Nuova Shenron's Evasive Skill. It can also be obtained by the Future Warrior by purchasing it from the Skill Shop.

In Xenoverse 2, Dragon Burn returns as Nuova Shenron's Evasive Skill. It can be obtained by the Future Warrior as a reward in Parallel Quests 82: "Ultimate Brotherly Battle!". As part of the 1.17.00 Update DLC, it can be added to Omega Shenron's custom skillset after purchasing it in Partner Customization.

In Dragon Ball Legends, Omega Shenron (DBL-EVT-38U) uses Heat Armor as part of his Arcane of the Shadow Dragons Ultimate Move Arts. However, it is performed like an Explosive Wave.
