High Speed Rush (ハイスピードラッシュ Hai Supīdo Rasshu) is a combination of many punches and kicks, ending with a powerful downing strike.
The user flies towards the opponent, and upon approaching, the user punches or kicks the opponent to stun, and afterwards delivers heavy but quick blows, performed in rapid succession. The user then performs a finishing strike that sends the opponent down to the ground, inflicting good damage; however, it depends on the character.
The technique was first used by Master Shen when Mr. Popo sends Goku to the past as part of the boy's training on The Lookout. Videl uses it during her fight against Gohan as Great Saiyaman, when she thought that the Great Saiyaman was kidnapping Chobi while he was in fact trying to return it to its parents.
