Super Breath (ブレス Buresu[6], lit. "Breath") is a technique first used by Piccolo during his battle with Goku.


The user inhales deeply, and then exhales creating a huge gust of wind similar to a hurricane.


King Piccolo uses a slightly similar method to throw some little rocks at Goku's limbs, with the intention of torturing him and to be immobilized by the pain of the injuries caused. He also uses it to blow Emperor Pilaf and his gang off of their airship after betraying them.

Piccolo uses this technique against Goku when he increases his size in the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament.

Recoome uses it to counter Gohan's Masenko. While battling on Namek, Gohan charges a Masenko and fires it at Recoome. Recoome, with his superior strength, is able to blow away Gohan's attack with Super Breath.[7]


Gohan's Super Breath

Gohan himself accidentally uses Super Breath when he blows out the candles on his birthday cake, when he turns 11 years old in the anime.[8]

Innocent Buu uses a stronger version of the attack, the Flame Shower Breath, to level cities.

Evil Buu uses Deflecting the Transfiguration Beam with his Breath to counter the Chocolate Beam onto Good Buu himself before eating him and transforming into Super Buu.

Later, Super Buu uses it to counter Gotenks' Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack in the anime.[9]
