"Unleashes a Ki Wave. If it misses, the energy wave will move in front of the enemy and target them."
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Skill description

Menacing Flare[1] is a Energy Wave and Rush Attack used by Gohan.


The user fires an Energy Wave at the opponent and if it misses, the user will use Rapid Movement to deliver a flying kick to the opponent.

Usage and Power

Gohan used this in anger after ordering Vegeta to stop hurting his injured father. Vegeta managed to dodge the energy wave but was hit by technique follow up kick, catching the Saiyan prince of guard.

Video Game Appearances

DBXV2 Future Warrior 2 (1.05.00 Update) Menacing Flare (Charging Energy Wave)

Future Warrior charging the Menacing Flare Super Skill's energy wave in Xenoverse 2

Menacing Flare was named in Xenoverse 2 where it appears as a Super Skill after the 1.05.00 Update. It can be obtained by the Future Warrior by purchasing it from the TP Medal Shop (open Friday to Sunday) for 30 TP Medals. Despite being used by Kid Gohan in the manga and anime, it does not appear in any of Gohan's Skillsets, though it can be added to Pan's skillset by Partner Customization.[2] If the energy wave hits the opponent, the attack ends without the follow up kick.


  • The original skill description of this technique in Xenoverse 2 mistakenly states that the Energy Wave will move in front of the enemy and target them if the initial attack misses, when in reality it is actually the user of the skill who does so.
