Wolf Fang Fist (狼牙風風拳 Rōgafūfūken, lit. "Wolf Fang Windy Fist" or "Wolf Fang Typhoon Fist") is a technique used by Yamcha.


Yamcha typically does a combo of clawing and punching, then finishing with a double palm strike to launch his opponent away. His hand and finger movements may be intended to mimic the biting of a wolf.

First seen in Dragon Ball, the Wolf Fang Fist is a unique attack in that no energy is directly expelled from the user, rather ki energy empowers the strikes with incredible force, usually through the focus of a totem animal (the wolf). The technique is shown as a flurry of punches and kicks that seem much more effective and powerful than Yamcha's standard physical strikes, oftentimes seen trailed by a red aura or the crimson wolf itself. As Yamcha is the only person to commonly perform an attack of this nature, it is assumed he invented it.


Yamcha first used this attack in the series in Diablo Desert against Goku.[7]

In Xenoverse, the Wolf Fang Fist is a Super Skill that is usable by Yamcha in all his skill sets and by Gotenks in his third skill set. It can also be learned by the Future Warrior after completing Yamcha's third training mission.

In Xenoverse 2, the Wolf Fang Fist returns as one of Yamcha's Super Skills which can also be learned by the Future Warrior by completing Student Quest: Lesson 1 of Yamcha's Training. Interestingly in one of his conversions with the Future Warrior, Yamcha confirms he did in fact invent the technique back when he was a bandit living in Diablo Desert.

  • While many other, superior Ki attacks are seen in the series, this was the first one to be shown.
  • The attack never appears once in Dragon Ball Z until it is used by Gotenks in The Return of Son Goku and Friends!.
  • The Wolf Fang Fist technique for Yamcha is completely absent in Kakarot.
  • One of the Xenoverse 2 Conton City Broadcasting has a City Patrol skit, where Tien interested in learning the Wolf Fang Fist, and asks for Yamcha's help (while he does agree, Yamcha throws in some comical moments in regard to shouts).
  • The English name change itself, "Wolf Fang Fist", in fact does not come from Funimation. Funimation wouldn't use the name until further into their production of the series. The name comes from the Creative Products Corporation dub in the Philippines, circa 1993/1994.
