The Hypnosis Technique (催眠の術 Saimin no Jutsu, lit. "Art of Hypnosis")[5] is used to hypnotize and control the mind of the target.


In the 21st World Martial Arts Tournament, Master Roshi (disguised as Jackie Chun) used his own version of the technique on Goku.

The technique is used by Fortuneteller Baba to confuse a policeman by staring into his eyes in an anime filler, making him let Konkichi speak with Goku about his bank-robbery innocence.


Baba uses a Hypnosis Technique on a policeman

The technique is used by Master Roshi (disguised as Jackie Chun) when he fought Man-Wolf in the 22nd World Martial Arts Tournament. Man-Wolf could not turn back to a human because Roshi destroyed the moon with a MAX Power Kamehameha to return Great Ape Goku to normal during the 21st World Martial Arts Tournament. Master Roshi uses the Hypnosis Technique on Man-Wolf to convince him that Krillin's head is the moon. The Hypnosis Technique works, and Man-Wolf turns back to a human.

In Dragon Ball Super, in the Tournament of Power, Master Roshi used the Sleepy Boy Technique on the transformed Ganos. Monaito used Hypnosis to knock out a young Granolah in the past. Years later, he would use it to briefly put Macki and Oil to sleep in order to prevent them interfering with Goku, Vegeta and Granolah's combined effort to stop Gas.


Android 18 is hypnotized

In Dragon Ball GT, the Para Brothers have their own version of this technique which takes the form of a hypnotic dance that forces a target to dance along with the user. Hell Fighter 17 uses this technique to brainwash Android 17, who himself briefly uses it on Android 18 before fusing with Hell Fighter 17.


Video Game Appearances[]

In Revenge of King Piccolo, General Blue uses hypnosis to brainwash Octopapa and make him take part in his battle against Goku.

In Harukanaru Densetsu, King Kai uses this technique to oblige Vegeta to tell him jokes.
