"Time to kill..."

Human Extinction Attack (人類絶滅攻撃[9][10] Jinrui Zetsumetsu Kōgeki) also known as Assault Rain (アサルトレイン)[1][2][3][4] is a Continuous Energy Bullet used by Super Buu.


Super Buu raises his hand up in the air and charges a pink aura around his body. Then, he fires a massive barrage of pink energy waves up into the air to rain down on the opponent, inflicting a large amount of damage.


Super Buu uses this attack to kill all of the Earthlings on Earth. When Piccolo suggests to an impatient Super Buu that Buu could kill some humans while waiting to fight Gotenks (conditionally promising to his friends that he will wish the victims back to life), Super Buu walks around The Lookout to calculate the number of humans still alive and then proceeds to use the attack to lethal effect, killing everyone on the planet in a matter of minutes. Only Tien Shinhan and Chiaotzu are skilled enough to dodge the blasts and escape from death. Mr. Satan and Bee are also spared due to the friendly Good Buu's influence on Super Buu.

In the Dragon Ball Super manga, Fused Zamasu uses this attack, after blasting Goku and Vegeta away, he announces himself as the Supreme God as he unleashes this blasts to show off his power. Goku and Vegeta managed to evade most of them and Goku blocked all energy blasts heading towards Shin, Gowasu, Future Trunks, and Future Mai.

Offworlder Tekka performing Shooting Rain in Dragon Ball Fusions

In Dragon Ball Fusions, three weaker variations of Assault Rain are introduced. The first is Shooting Rain which is the weakest, the second is Shooting Bullet which is stronger than Shooting Rain but weaker than Assault Rain, and the third is Shooting Blast which is stronger than Shooting Bullet but weaker than Assault Rain. Assault Rain itself is depicted as the strongest of the four, though it has a stronger variation of itself making it the penultimate of the four techniques. If Tekka is selected as Offworlder, then they can learn Shooting Rain and then Shooting Bullet, and finally Shooting Blast once they reach a certain level. Offworlder Tekka can learn Assault Rain's three weaker versions Shooting Rain after reaching Lv. 16, Shooting Bullet after reaching Lv.48, and Shooting Blast after reaching Lv. 80. Kid Buu (aka Majin Buu: Pure) can learn it after reaching Lv. 60. Mirayo can learn Assault Rain after reaching Lv. 64. The stronger version of Assault Rain called Galaxy Assault Rain which is the strongest version of Assault Rain and has an extremely long range that covers the entire battlefield. Kid Buu can learn it after reaching Lv. 90, while Mirayo can learn Galaxy Assault Rain after reaching Lv. 100. Tekka can gain access to Assault Rain and Galaxy Assault Rain by performing EX-Fusion with either Kid Buu or Mirayo. Super Janemba and Kid Buu's EX-Fusion Janembu can inherit both Assault Rain and Galactic Assault Rain from Kid Buu. Mirayo's EX-Fusions such as Miracora, Miradoola, Mirami, Mirara, and Miraryl can also inherit Assault Rain and/or Galaxy Assault Rain from Mirayo.[8]

Shallot (DBL00-01) performing his Assault Rain Special Move Arts learned from Buu: Super (DBL11-09S) in Dragon Ball Legends

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Assault Rain returns as one of Super Buu's Ultimate Skills which can also be obtained by the Future Warrior as a reward in Expert Mission 09: "The Most Feared Majin". After the 1.15.00 Update, after randomly obtaining Customization Unlock Key 9 as a Raid Reward, Janemba becomes unlocked in Partner Customization, thus it can be added to Janemba's custom skillset after purchasing it in his Partner Customization.[7] Additionally it also appears as one of Taino's Ultimate Skills when fought in Raid Quest: "Time Patroller Takedown".[6]

In Dragon Ball Legends, Assault Rain appears as the Special Move Arts for Buu: Super (DBL11-09S). Additionally Buu: Super (DBL11-09S) can teach it to Shallot (DBL00-01) after reaching Friendship Rank 2. Buu: Super also performs Assault Rain as the finisher for his Mystic Ball Attack Ultimate Move Arts where after performing the Mystic Ball Attack, Buu: Super will fire a single Assault Rain energy wave up towards the opponent above him who will be blast away by the wave.

In Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission, it is also named Assault Rain where it appears as Majin Buu (Evil)'s Super Attack which can also be learned by all Elite type Hero Avatars after Majin Buu (Evil) reaches Camaraderie Lvl 2.

In Dragon Ball FighterZ, it appears under the name Human Extinction Attack as a level 1 super move, however because of Super Buu's absence in the game, it is Kid Buu who uses the move instead.


Future Android 18 uses a similar attack

  • Future Android 18 uses a similar attack in Dragon Ball Z: The History of Trunks, against the hiding Future Gohan and Future Trunks.
    • Future Android 18 also uses that attack in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot as part of the -Trunks- The Warrior of Hope DLC. However, in Kakarot it is depicted as producing a spherical explosion around her and Future Android 17 rather than raining down multiple blasts like Human Extinction Attack.
  • King Piccolo uses a similar attack in Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo. Once he finishes, he uses an Explosive Wave.
  • Fused Zamasu uses a similar technique in the manga, though it didn't attack anybody due to no humans besides the heroes living anymore. Additionally he performed said technique two-handed.
  • It is by far the most lethal Energy Barrage technique ever used in the series due to it wiping out most of the Earth's population with extreme precision. It is also one of the most lethal techniques in the series as it killed most of Earth's population with the exception of Mr. Satan, those on the Lookout, Tien, Chiaotzu, Fortuneteller Baba who was in Other World, and Gohan who was training on the Sacred World of the Kai.
    • However it is not as lethal as Erase which is capable of erasing multiple universes and their inhabitants, Supernova which eradicated almost all the Saiyans on Planet Vegeta during the Genocide of the Saiyans save for Broly and his father who survive in the films, Earth Breaker which killed everyone on Earth except for Goku, Gohan, Piccolo (only in the film as he is killed earlier in Dragon Ball Super), Bulma, Master Roshi, Krillin, Tien, Jaco, Beerus, and Whis. However out of all these techniques Human Extinction Attack is closest to Erase in terms of precision as Zeno like Super Buu can use his technique to attack specific targets sparing others as shown when Zeno erased Frost but spared the rest of Team Universe 6 and their Universe, similar to how Super Buu spared Mr. Satan while targeting the rest of Earth's population. In contrast, Supernova and Earth Breaker kill indiscriminately by destroying planets. However, unlike Erase, Human Extinction Attack can be dodged as shown by Tien and Chiaotzu who dodge the attack.
    • While Kid Buu's Planet Burst is potentially just as lethal, it like Supernova and Earth Breaker kills indiscriminately by destroying planets. Though it destroyed the Earth and killed Gohan, Goten, Trunks, Piccolo, Tien, and Chiaotzu as well as any other surviving inhabitants, its body count was likely way lower due to the Human Extinction Attack, Innocent Buu's rampages, and the people murdered by Van Zant and Smitty.
