Power Blitz (パワーブリッツ Pawā Burittsu) is an Energy Wave used by Android 18 and Android 17.


The user draws their hand back and charges a swirling pink/blue energy sphere. They then brings their hand forward and fires the sphere in the form of an energy wave at the opponent, inflicting a great amount of damage.

Future Android 18 and Future Android 17 use this attack to destroy a few buildings during their destructive rampage in a city. Future Android 18 later uses it a few times during her and her brother's last battle with Future Trunks, though the Super Saiyan easily dodges the blasts.

Android 18 uses this attack in the battle against "Mighty Mask" (Trunks and Goten in disguise) in the semi-finals of the 25th World Martial Arts Tournament. However, "Mighty Mask" manages to dodge the attack, which then nearly harms Mr. Satan on the ground.

In Dragon Ball Super, Android 18 uses a similar attack using two hands to stop Ribrianne from saving Roasie as she is thrown out of the Tournament of Power arena. Android 17 used this technique against Catopesra.

In Dragon Ball GT, 17 uses this attack to kill Krillin, while he was under control of Hell Fighter 17. Soon after, he aims his Power Blitz towards Marron. However, Android 18 teleports in front of her daughter and warns 17 to stay away. Android 17 proceeds to fire a pink Power Blitz at 18. Android 18 retaliates and releases a blue Power Blitz at 17. Their energy blasts clash but Android 17's Power Blitz effortlessly overwhelms 18's.
