Rush Ki Wave (ラッシュ気功波 Rasshu Kikōha, lit. "Rush Spirit Cultivation Wave") is a point-blank range Energy Wave used in the Dragon Ball franchise.


It involves the user charging a small ball of Ki in his/her hand, and firing it off in a fashion similar somewhat like Goku's Angry Kamehameha, Vegeta's Final Galick Cannon, or any other one-handed energy wave attack. The beam itself is not very strong, but it can be used either to start a combo against the user's opponent, or simply to knock them away so that the user can charge for a Blast 2 or Ultimate Blast attack.
