Life-Risking Blow! (捨て身の一撃! Sutemi no Ichigeki!) is a technique used by Frieza's soldiers in the Namek Saga and Gotenks in the Golden Frieza Saga.


The user runs (or flies at the opponent at high speed), hitting them and inflicting a huge amount of damage.



Gotenks' Life-Risking Blow hitting Tagoma in the groin in Dragon Ball Super

Unnamed soldiers of Frieza led by Napple use this charge on Namek in an attempt to attack the three Warrior-type Namekians in Moori's village, but they are stopped and beaten by the three warriors.

In the anime version of the Golden Frieza Saga, Gotenks uses this technique on Tagoma resulting in him humorously headbutting Tagoma in the crotch causing him to fall to the ground in pain inadvertently allowing Frog Ginyu to steal Tagoma's body.

The Frieza Soldier prepares the Life-Risking Blow! in Budokai Tenkaichi 3

Life-Risking Blow! was named in the Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi series, where it appears as the Frieza Soldier's Ultimate Blast.

In Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle, Life-Risking Blow appears as one of Gotenks Super Attacks and features him firing a Revenge Cannon at the opponent then arrogantly laughing prematurely as the opponent survives and attacks from behind forcing Gotenks to retaliate by charging at the opponent with Life-Risking Blow, hitting them but dazing Gotenks due to him hitting them with his head.


  • After the attack has been completed, the Frieza Soldier takes a few seconds to breathe before continuing in the Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi series.
    • When used by Gotenks in both the anime and Dokkan Battle he gets briefly dazed after headbutting the opponent.
