Mystic Attack (ミスティックアタック Misutikku Atakku) is a technique that allows the user to extend their arms to great lengths.
Usage and Power
The Mystic Attack is commonly seen in use by Piccolo, and most Namekians seem able to use this technique (like Lord Slug). It is also used by demonic characters, such as Angila, Majin Buu, and Janemba.
Penne Macareni later uses it to hit the switch to change train tracks.
- Evil Flight Strike - A variation where the user flails around their elongated arms while ascending. Used by Piccolo as one of his Super Skills in Xenoverse and Xenoverse 2. It can also be used by the Future Warriors in both games if they are either a Namekian or Majin.
- Power of Darkness - Lord Slug's Ultimate Attack where he uses Namek Finger to grab the opponent to pull them towards him allowing him to deliver a series of punches and kicks before knocking the opponent away and finishing them off with an Eye Laser blast. Also known as Darkness Rush (Ranged) where it is exclusive to Lord Slug and Namekian Future Warrior in Xenoverse 2.
- Amazing Spear - A variation where the user powers up and delivers a punch with their elongated arm followed by a series of rapid punches with their elongated arms so fast that they produce afterimages that give the illusion the opponent is getting hit by multiple arms before pulling the opponent towards them to finish off the attack with a green Energy Punch that sends the opponent flying. A Special Move used by Namekian Tekka and several minor playable Namekian characters in Dragon Ball Fusions.

Also while in their Great Namekian form, Great Namek characters can use the Mystic Attack as their Strong Attack, allowing them to whip their arms around to perform as a sweeping attack.
In Dragon Ball Fusions, the Namekian version is called Decoy which drags the opponent in for a melee attack. There is a stronger version called Super Decoy. Additionally, there is another variation called Amazing Spear which is a rapid elongated punching rush before pulling the opponent towards the user to deliver an Energy Punch.
