Mouth Energy Waves[10] are several almost identical attacks used by different characters in the same way: by blasting a large amount of energy from their mouth. It is a very swift technique and quite powerful with exploding and piercing properties depending on the way it is used.


Mouth Energy Wave can be considered a generic term for any energy beam shot from the mouth.



Tambourine firing a Chou Makouhou (first usage of the technique in the Dragon Ball series)

It is used by several Namekian characters towards the later part of Dragon Ball. In the King Piccolo Saga, Tambourine uses it to destroy Goku's original Flying Nimbus,[11] and King Piccolo uses it to destroy Shenron after having his youth restored.[12]

Later in the Piccolo Jr. Saga, Piccolo uses this attack in the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament after using his Giant Form and again as a sudden attack to pierce a large hole through Goku's right shoulder; he also uses it in the Vegeta Saga to quickly destroy the final Saibaman,[13] as well as in Dragon Ball Z: The World's Strongest to destroy a Bio-Man (Explosive Breath Cannon). Arlian Guards use this against Nappa and Vegeta.[14]

Dodoria uses it to try to kill Bardock,[15] but the Saiyan survived, albeit heavily injured, as well as to kill one Namekian child, Cargo, in the anime (in manga, Frieza's Death Beam did the deed) and to kill a Warrior-type Namekian.

Semi-Perfect Cell uses a Mouth Energy Wave during his battle against Super Vegeta in an attempt to surprise him, although Vegeta survives.[5]

Innocent Buu and Super Buu are known for using the technique many times. Super Buu's version is called Ill Flash.

In the movies: Angila, Lord Slug, Bio-Broly, Janemba, and Broly also use this kind of attack.


Video Game Appearances

In Xenoverse, the Future Warrior can learn several Mouth Energy Wave techniques (Nappa's Break Cannon, Recoome Eraser Gun, Majin Buu's Innocence Breath, Super Buu's Ill Flash, Gotenks' Victory Cannon, and Super Buu's Dimension Cannon). Super Buu's Vice Shout (known as Dimension Cannon) is depicted a Mouth Energy Wave in Xenoverse.

In Xenoverse 2, while using the Become Giant Awoken Skill, Namekians gain access to three Super Skills that allow them to fire their Mouth Cannon at either short, mid, or long range.
