"Fires a Ki Wave that travels straight forward before breaking up into an area attack right as it is about to hit the opponent."
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Tutorial description

Scattering Bullet (拡散弾 Kakusandan, lit. "Diffusion Bullet") is a Continuous Energy Bullet used by Krillin.


It is a large energy sphere fired and sent up into the air. When fired, it is slow, as noted by Piccolo. The user then changes the course of the blast into the air. It then splits into smaller, but faster ki spheres that attack the foe at medium speeds, inflicting considerable damage.


Krillin fires the Scattering Bullet (in the manga)

Krillin uses this attack against the Saibamen in retaliation to a Saibaman's detonation that killed Yamcha. The attack is effective, leaving only one Saibaman alive (who is dispatched with ease by Piccolo shortly later), but does not work on the Saiyans. It is used again after this, during image training with Gohan in the Nameless Namek's Spaceship when Krillin unleashes all his attacks on Gohan at once.

This attack reappears in Dragon Ball Super, used by Krillin to defeat a large number of Frieza's soldiers after regaining his confidence.


  • Super Scatter Shot - A stronger version of the Scatter Shot that appears as one of Krillin and Pikkon's Special Moves in Dragon Ball Fusions.
    • Full Power Scatter Shot - A full power version of Scatter Shot that is even stronger than Super Scatter Shot. Appears as one of Krillin and Pikkon's Special Moves in Dragon Ball Fusions.
  • Z-Assist Scatter Kamehameha - A variation of the Scatter Kamehameha used by the Future Warrior in Dragon Ball Xenoverse when performing the technique while Krillin is their current Master. The Z-Assist causes Krillin's soul (which appears as an astral projection of Krillin performing the technique) to go into the Future Warrior's body while they're performing it increasing the power of the Warrior's Scatter Kamehameha.

The attack is named Expanding Energy Wave in the Budokai Tenkaichi series.

It is named Scatter Kamehameha and is Krillin's ultimate move prior to his unlock ability "transformation" in Shin Budokai and Shin Budokai - Another Road, and one of his selectable ultimates in Burst Limit.

In Dragon Ball Online, the technique is named Scatter Shot. It is learned at level 34 by Turtle Hermits.

It is named Spread Energy Blast in the Raging Blast series, Tenkaichi Tag Team, Ultimate Tenkaichi and Dragon Ball Z For Kinect.

In Battle of Z, renamed Energy Recovery Shot, this attack is used to heal allies.

The move also appears in Xenoverse under the name Scatter Kamehameha as Krillin's Ultimate Skill. It can also be learned by the Future Warrior by completing Krillin's Training as the Warrior's Master. If the technique is used while Krillin is the Warrior's current Master, then it will receive a Z-Assist.

It appears under the name Scatter Shot in Dragon Ball Fusions, where it can be learned by Krillin, Pikkon, Saibaking, and others, including fusions such as Gorillin, Krigohan, EX Prilin, and Picohan. It also possesses two stronger versions, Super Scatter Shot and Full Power Scatter Shot.

In Xenoverse 2, Scatter Kamehameha returns as one of Krillin's Ultimate Skills which he will teach to the Future Warrior in School Quest: "Lesson 3" of Krillin's Training, during which the warrior defeat ten Saibamen before facing Krillin using the Ultimate Skill along with the other skills they learned from Krillin to defeat them and complete the lesson which unlocks the Scatter Kamehameha as an equipable skill. However, due to the Z-Assist feature bring omitted from Xenoverse 2 the Z-Assist version does not appear.

In FighterZ, this move appears as Krillin's level 3 super attack/Meteor Attack. During the attack, a short cinematic will play out, in which Krillin is invincible. The cinematic will end, and a large beam will quickly travel across the screen. Regardless of whether or not the beam is blocked, another cinematic in which Krillin is invincible is will play out. After this one ends the 'scatter' part of the move rains down on the opponent from above, and both parts of the move can inflict damage which results in a rather hefty amount if they connect.

The technique appears under the name Diffusion Energy Wave (拡散エネルギー波) in Dragon Ball Heroes, where it was added in Big Bang Mission 7 as a CAA usable by several characters.
