- This article is about Kid Buu's energy sphere. For Vegeta's rush attack, see Planet Burst.
First, Kid Buu raises one hand in the air and gathers his energy in the form of a giant, bright-pink energy sphere. Once it is ready, he launches the energy sphere at the opponent, inflicting a huge amount of damage. Goku notes that in its first use, it is strong enough to blow the Earth up at least ten times.
Kid Buu uses this attack to destroy the Earth after his previous attack is deflected by Vegeta's Final Burst Cannon. He also uses it to destroy other planets to track down Goku and Vegeta, and uses miniature versions during his battle with Goku in his Super Saiyan 2 form on the Supreme Kai Planet.
In Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, there are two variations of this technique which is called Vanishing Ball in the game:
- Super Vanishing Ball - A more powerful Ultimate Skill version of the technique.
- Teleporting Vanishing Ball - A Ultimate Skill version which is a combination of Instant Transmission and Planet Burst, where the user creates a pink energy sphere and then uses Instant Transmission to teleport for a surprise attack.
