Nova Chariot (ノヴァチャリオット Nova Chariotto) is an Energy Shield used by Cooler in his Fourth Transformation.


The user surrounds themself with a purple barrier and flies at the enemy, ramming them and inflicting a great deal of damage.


In Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge, Cooler uses this move to fly through Goku's Kaio-ken Kamehameha unfazed (much to Goku's shock), and then punches him in the face.

In the anime version of the Tournament of Destroyers, Frost uses this technique in his second form to charge through Goku's Kamehameha and slam into him.

Video Game Appearance

Nova Chariot was named in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z, where it is one of Cooler's attacks.

This attack also appears as one of Final Form Cooler's Super Attacks in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 under the name Shadow Crusher (シャドウクラッシャー) as one of Cooler's Super Skills in his Final Form. In Xenoverse 2, this attack works as a counter-attack to Ki Blast moves, in which the user can fly through them and attack the opponent. In Xenoverse 2, Cooler performs the Frieza Stance pose as a taunt and if hit by a Ki Blast skill the counter-attack portion of this technique is triggered. As part of the Masters Pack DLC, the Future Warrior can learn this Super Skill by completing School Quest: "Lesson 1" of Cooler's Training. Interestingly, it is referred to as God Bar Attack in the plot description of "Lesson 1", despite the skill itself being listed under the name Shadow Crusher in the Lesson's Basic Reward section.
