Rapid Movement (高速移動 Kōsoku Idō) is a technique used by the Dragon Team and their opponents in the Dragon Ball franchise.


The fighter moves with great speed, which creates the illusion of teleportation.


It is one of the most frequently used techniques in the series, used for more advanced movement and dodging, and as a base for other movement techniques such as the Afterimage Technique.

Video Game Appearance

The technique is also used in several Dragon Ball video games, notably Dragon Ball Z: Sagas and the Budokai Tenkaichi series.

It appears in Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2, the attack appears as Goku's Signature Attack under the name High Speed Movement.

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, it is known as Vanish or Vanishing and is used to evade attacks and/or pursue a knockbacked opponent. It is also as part of various super, evasive, and ultimate skills. This game also introduces variations of it such as Instant Rise.

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, it is known as Z-Vanish or Z-Vanishing and works mostly the same way it did in Xenoverse. Also during any Super Saiyan Awoken Skill transformations (including Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan), the user can Z-Vanish automatically in attack range of the opponent when performing a Charged melee attacks and fully charged Super Skills such as the Kamehameha, x10 Kamehameha, Galick Gun, Galick Beam Cannon, Evil Explosion, and Big Bang Kamehameha. However this vanishing effect is only present if the user's transformation is via an Awoken Skill as automatically transformed characters such as SSGSS Goku, SSGSS Vegeta, Majin Vegeta, Vegito Blue, and Super Saiyan Teen Gohan will not, however Teen Gohan can if he transforms into his Super Saiyan 2 form as it is an Awoken Skill transformation. This vanishing effect is not present when SSGSS Goku uses his Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken and X10 Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken Awoken Skills.



  • In the episode "Deadly Beauty", Turtle when defending Maron from two men intending to take advantage of her briefly used a similar move to Rapid Movement to stand between them and form a defensive pose.
