This technique is used to trap their opponents by causing them to lose control of their bodies and dance uncontrollably, thus making them defenseless against attacks.
The Para Brothers use this on Beehay against Goku, Trunks, and Pan and are able to knock them out, giving them the necessary time to retain the Black Star Dragon Ball which Goku, Trunks, and Pan had left in their spaceship. However, the Moumas scared the brothers and Goku, Trunks and Pan, regained control of their bodies and knocked them out.
Video Game Appearances
"A strange dance from the Parapara Brothers. Pull your enemies into the dance."
Para Para Boogie appears under the name Dancing Parapara in Dragon Ball Xenoverse and appears as one of the Future Warrior's obtainable Super Skills. It can be obtained via purchasing it at the Skill Shop. DLC characters GT Trunks and Pan (as part of her 2nd skillset) use the technique as one of their Super Skills, as part of the GT Pack 1 DLC. While dancing (regardless of whether an opponent is hypnotized or not) the user's stamina will recover at a much faster rate.
In Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle, Para Para Boogie is the Para Brother's super attack; however, since they are currently unplayable, they never use the attack in their boss fight. The attack name appears in the game files, however.
"Performs a dance that forces the opponent to dance as well. The opponent can do noting but dance for a certain duration. The dance can be cancelled with an Evasive Skill."
— Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Tutorial description
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Dancing Parapara returns as a Super Skill used by Pan which the Future Warrior can learn by completing Pan's Initiation Test to train under her. Its tutorial description reveals that the user can cancel the dance by using an Evasive Skill. The technique can also be used by the Future Warrior as one of their preset Super Skills in Challenge Quest 01: "Art of Battle" which serves as the game's fighting controls tutorial at the beginning of the game, however it is only available during the Challenge Quest itself and must be learned from Pan later in the game in order to be able to use it permanently. As part of the 1.09.00 Update, it can be equipped to either Videl and/or Jaco's custom skillsets after purchasing it. It is automatically available for Pan's custom skillset.
