Tornado! (回転攻撃 Kaiten Kōgeki)[1] is a technique used by Goku.


After calling the name of the attack, Goku spins while rushing on the opponent to attack him/her.


Goku uses Tornado! against Nam during the 21st World Martial Arts Tournament, almost knocking Nam out of the ring, but he gets dizzy after using it and ends up lying on the ground. Nam uses this opportunity to perform his ultimate attack on Goku, the Cross Arm Dive.[3]

In Hell, Goku also power up a speedy rotary kick to knock out instantly/simultaneously all Janemba's clones, that attack it in group.[5]

Goku later uses a similar technique against Oceanus Shenron to counter her Mighty Hurricane Fury.[6]
