Spirit Shot (双龍弾 Sōryūdan, lit. "Twin Dragon Bullets" or "Double Dragon Bullets") 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[]

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.
