"Now the REAL FIGHT BEGINS!"
With all of his power, combined with energy accumulated from others, Goku charges destructive force into his fist and delivers a decisive punch to his enemy.
"Broly: You've lasted longer then expected, but your final hour has arrived.
During Dragon Ball Z: Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan, Goku uses the attack at the end of his fight with Legendary Super Saiyan Broly. On the brink of defeat, Goku gains energy from Piccolo, Gohan, Future Trunks, and finally Vegeta, restoring him to full power and beyond, allowing him to challenge Broly with the Miracle Blow. The attack blasts into Broly's abdomen, launching the Legendary Super Saiyan into the path of Comet Camori and causing his body to crack and his energy to explode outwards, wounding him to such an extent that he fell into a seven-year coma after crash-landing on Earth.
In Bardock - The Father of Goku, the captain of Team Dodoria uses a very similar technique on his comrade (unintentionally). While landing multiple heavy blows on Bardock (who is held in a Full-Nelson by the captain's comrade), he prepares a powerful one aimed at Bardock's gut, who counters by flipping in midair, causing the captain to punch straight through his comrade's armor (and into his body) instead and was finished off at once by Bardock's Flip Shoot.
In Dragon Ball GT, Super Saiyan 4 Goku uses a similar attack to seriously injure Eis Shenron before destroying him with his Dragon Fist, because the Shadow Dragon used an extremely cowardly blinding strike against him.
Video Game Appearances
As part of the Broly Pack DLC in Dragon Ball FighterZ, Miracle Blow makes a cameo appearance as part of a Dramatic Finish. If Super Saiyan Goku KO's Broly as the final opponent on the Space stage with a Neutral Heavy Attack, then a reenactment of the climax of Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan will occur where SSJ Goku defeats Broly with Miracle Blow. After knocking Broly back Goku stands glaring at Broly who starts to sweat and shows a brief tinge of fear before angrily charging at Goku who charges at Broly as well. Broly lands a punch but it just grazes Goku's cheek who hits him with Miracle Blow causing Broly to shout "Impossible!" as he explodes like in the film. The only difference visually is Goku's Gi is not torn off.
In Dragon Ball Heroes, the technique is called Legend Smash (レジェンドスマッシュ Rejendo Sumasshu) and was added as a Super Attack for Super Saiyan Goku in Big Bang Mission 7.
- Goku's battle quote, "Now the REAL FIGHT BEGINS", is ironic as the Miracle Blow ends up ending his fight with Broly.
- In the uncut version of Dragon Ball Z: Super Android 13!, Goku, when using his Spirit Bomb Super Saiyan form, utilized a similar attack on the titular villain to finish him off.
