Multi-Form Attack (四身の攻撃 Shishin no Kōgeki, lit. Attack of Four Bodies)[1] is a technique used by Tien Shinhan.


The technique begins with Tien kicking his opponent backwards, followed up by him using the Multi-Form technique, splitting in to 4 parts. The Tiens then charge around the opponent, spreading out into four sections around him. The Tiens then each fire a Ki Blast Cannon at the opponent, causing major damage.

Tien uses the Multi-Form technique to surround Goku the four sides and fire his Ki Blast Cannons against him during the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament. However, Goku avoids the attack jumping off the ring to the sky.[2]

Tien also uses the Multi-Form and fires Tri-Beams combined with Yamcha's Super Spirit Ball against the Phantom Saiyans, during a time travel that the Dragon Team make to the past through the Pendulum Room. However, despite the attacks producing a powerful explosion, it does not have the desired success in harming the two Saiyans.[3]
