"Performs an attack to the front of the character that eliminates Ki Blasts."
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Tutorial description

Shining Friday (シャイニングフライデー Shainingu Furaidē)[4] is a more powerful version of Saturday Crush used by Raditz.


Raditz raises his hand and charges purple and orange electricity. He then forms the electricity in a large, purplish-pink energy sphere and strikes the opponent with it at close range, inflicting a large amount of damage.

Raditz first used the attack to destroy the pickup truck of the Farmer he had killed earlier after Gohan tries to hide under it. Raditz attempts to use this attack to kill an unconscious Gohan after the young Saiyan injured him with a powerful headbutt. Before Raditz could kill Gohan, however, Goku grabs Raditz in a full nelson from behind, giving Piccolo enough time to kill Goku and Raditz with the Special Beam Cannon.
