"Fire countless sharp, deadly Ki Blasts over a wide range!"
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Skill description

Lightning Shower Rain (ライトニングシャワーレイン Raitoningu Shawā Rein) is a technique used by Janemba in his Super form in Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn.


Super Janemba traces his finger in the air and creates a streak of green energy light that breaks into sharp, glass-like needles (which are identified as a form of Ki Blast in Xenoverse 2). Then, he swings his arm back and fires the energy needles at his opponent, inflicting a high amount of damage.



Super Janemba's second Lightning Shower Rain

In Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn, Super Janemba uses this attack during his battle against Goku and Vegeta. After Super Janemba uses his Mystic Attack to stretch his arm and strangle Vegeta, Goku saves him, and they both hide in a mountain of spikes. While Goku is trying to convince Vegeta to fuse together, Super Janemba attempts to murder the two Saiyans firing the Lightning Shower Rain at the spiked mountain. Fortunately, Goku and Vegeta dodge the attack with just a few cuts.

Video Game Appearances[]

Lightning Shower Rain was named in the Budokai Tenkaichi series and is one of Super Janemba's Blast 2 in his Super form.

In Shin Budokai and Shin Budokai - Another Road, it is named Needle Mountain Hell and is used by Future Janemba.

In Dragon Ball Heroes, the move appears under the name Rakshasa's Radiant Bullet (羅刹光流弾), added in Big Bang Mission 3 as the Super Attack of Janemba (Modified).

In Dokkan Battle, it is Super Janemba's Super Attack. It also appears as a super attack for Janembu.

In Fusions, Lightning Shower Rain is a learnable Special Move for Super Janemba, Janembu, Pipila, Jamila, Kadoola, and Yashimo. Tekka can learn it by preforming EX-Fusion with a Lightning Shower Rain user.

In Xenoverse 2, it appears under the name Dimension Ray and is one of Super Janemba's Ultimate Skills. It is also used by Mira in story mission "Bardock, the Masked Man" indicating that Towa may have incorporated Janemba's DNA into Mira when she reconstructed his body after it was destroyed by the Toki Toki City Hero in Dragon Ball Xenoverse. It can also be obtained by the Future Warrior by purchasing it from the TP Medal Shop. Interestingly, the glass-like sharps produced by this technique are identified as a type of Ki Blast that are razor sharp, thus classifying it as a unique form of Continuous Energy Bullet (presumably using Alteration-type ki manipulation technique and/or in conjunction with his Altered Reality ability). As part of the Legendary Pack 1 DLC, after regenerating by shaving off more of his life span, SupervillainFuture Janemba's power increases to the point his Dimension Ray is able to one shot both Future Trunks and Future Pikkon at the same time.

In FighterZ, it appears this time under the name Needle Light Shower (鬼神光衝波) and serves as Janemba's Meteor Super. The attack comes out very quickly after the initial super pause animation, allowing for wider comboability. Unlike most portrayals, this version of the move appears greener in color.
