Spirit Shot (双龍弾 Sōryūdan, lit. "Twin Dragon Bullet") is a technique used by Goku.


Goku crosses his forearms out in front of him, then throws his arms out creating an enormous force that blows his opponents away.

Usage and Power


Spirit Shot used on Cooler's Armored Squadron

Goku initially uses it in his battle against Jeice and Burter on Namek. After the Purple Comet Hurricane fails, Goku lands a hard blow in Jeice's face. When Jeice and Burter begin to retaliate, Goku blasts them both away with Spirit Shot before they can ready their attack. The attack does not cause them any damage but thoroughly humiliates the pair and prevents them from attacking Goku.

Goku later uses this technique on Earth against Cooler's Armored Squadron in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge.

In the fourth version of the Dragon Ball Z Kai intro, Goku uses a similar technique as a Super Saiyan.

In the Dragon Ball Super manga, Goku Black uses this technique after being blasted by Future Trunks as a diversion on his escape.

Video Game Appearances

The technique is used in the Budokai series: it is named Ki Blast Cannon in Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World and Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z, Spirit Shot in Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai, as well as Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit and Dragonball Evolution, and Kiai-hō (気合砲) in Dragon Ball Heroes and Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle.

In Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai - Another Road, both Gohan and Future Gohan use a one-handed version of the technique. While Future Gohan's technique is named the Spirit Shot, Present Gohan's technique is simply named the Kamehameha.

It is a normal Kiai technique used by Goku in the Budokai Tenkaichi series, Raging Blast series, Dragon Ball: Zenkai Battle, and Dragon Ball: Tap Battle.

Future Trunks uses a technique very similar, called Aura Saber (オーラセイバー), in Dragon Ball Z 2: Super Battle.
