Top Ten Dragon Ball Techniques

Which is the best technique in the entire Dragon Ball series (including Dragon Ball Z and GT)?

The Top Ten

1 Final Flash

Without a doubt, this attack is awesome, destructive and memorable. However, the kamehameha not only is as powerful as the final flash (when Goku releases enough power), but is the most well known signature attack of all anime ever. It's appearance sound and name are all recognized by even non dbz people and holds a place in the hearts of fans that the final flash never will.

Extremely strong and broke the effect of gravity. Kamehameha is so lame. It's used all the time and just boring. Final flash is way more destructive. Vegeta evolves his moves on his own. Goku just beefs up a move he learned from someone else, besides the spirit ball kamehameha is his only attack. Uncreative and extremely bland.
Vegeta is innovative and creates his own extremely powerful techniques. Spot deserved.

A pretty destructive attack! - LDes

Takes time but destruction power

2 Kamehameha

The most legendary and classic attack, put this first where it belongs. This should be 1st and Spirit Bomb 2nd - EvilAngel

The move we've ALL tried doing as a kid.

Is actually more powerful than the final flash. (In the saiyan saga it does not count because goku was about 3 time weaker than vegeta.) Now that goku is stronger and can go ultra instinct. He is LEAGUES above vegeta.) I also know that vegeta just gets a new form. We will have to see what that in-tales in terms of power, but in the long run, Goku is stronger and there fore the Kamehameha is stronger.

It's the most iconic Dragon Ball technique and it's also cool

3 Spirit Bomb

The most powerful attack of Dragon Ball Z and Gt. - LDes

So many people have been defeated with this move

I'm very disappointed to see what position spirit bomb is in. The spirit bomb killed kid buu. Kid buu had ultimate regeneration. He could regenerate just from being vapor!

BOOOM There a whole city gone and it has no survivors.
1spot needed.

4 Big Bang Attack

A massive ball of destruction. - LDes

This attack was so violent that Android 19 was killed in a few seconds.

In games it also acts as a shield against ki attacks and also hits

5 100x Big Bang Kamehameha

It is a 100x big bang KAMEHAMEHA just the big bang kamehameha alone almost destroyed Omega Shenron imagine 100x that

I like it its so awesome

Just obvious. 100x the force of a big bang kamehameha. Already stronger than than a normal kamehameha, I'd say this is it.

Hey that's pretty good

6 Special Beam Cannon

It's awesome can penetrate anything and is used by the best character piccolo even though cell steals it

I tried this move all the time in real life.

It can pierce every things

An attack so great that even Frost was scared of it

7 10x Kamehameha

Because its goku ss4 attack

Red death wave

8 Death Ball

That was not death ball it was supernova which killed bardock the best attack of Frieza this attack nothing

Death ball is one of my favorite attacks besides Double Sunday and Super Spirit Bomb.

Bardock didn't die, he was teleported back in time.

9 Tri-Beam

How is this not at least number 3? This attack doesn't just attack with your energy, but with your life force as well. Tien could even repel semi-perfect cell with this attack, and cell was about 1000 leagues above tien.

Seriously though, Tien slowing down Cell has to be the most badass, most power-level-defying moment in DBZ history, and it's all thanks to this insane technique.

A good technique that can be used by weak characters as well as strong ones

Neo Tri-Beam does 100x the user's power level in damage at the cost of life force. That's insane! If any of the saiyans or Buu used it it'd be a one shot against most villains. Tien also managed to slow down Cell with this despite Cell being way more powerful. Pretty underrated attack.

10 Burning Attack

Badass move Trunks does a bunch of badass arm movements with. Used this move in his fight with Frieza.


The way trunks moves his arm may be gathering ki, with saiyan strength like his, he could keep doing that until he has a 'burning spirit bomb' or some sort of attack that contains lots of ki power.

The Contenders

11 Final Kamehameha

So final flash is #1, Kamehameha is #2... Yet the combination of both is #7... That makes sense

Fusion of Super kamehameha and final flash. Think of the destruction!

Combination of two most powerful technique, the Final Flash + Super Kamehameha, it is also very cool ultimate attack

Seriously! This list is not about facts just major use.

12 Super Kamehameha

This attack should be listed under the title "Kamehameha" because it is a variation of the attack. It is like saying that Gohan's Kamehameha is a different attack than Goku's Kamehameha.

If kamehameha is 2nd then this is the better version so it deserves number 1. See this attack could be easily charge you guys just see the power see how much time final flash and spirit bomb take compare to that u can use it more times and can kill anyone.

A: why this even on here B:¿ C:if the other Kamehameha is just normal, why is it on the list?

13 Destructo Disk

Destructo disk was a interesting one that could be played as some sort of wild card, at least before enemies started regenerating. It would've killed napa without Vegeta there, almost killed Frieza, even bio- broly was stopped momentarily by it

Either this or spirit bomb are the strongest. the spirit bomb failed to kill Frieza but the Destructo Disk managed to cut his tail off, even though Krillin is many times weaker than him.

A disk that can cut through anything. - LDes

Should be like 11 honestly, this is a really op'd attack and no one gives it the respect it deserves.

14 Father-Son Kamehameha

Goten didn't knew how to use Kamehameha in world tournament junior championship goten used Kamehameha and was not able to control it and in broly second coming trunks used Kamehameha he should learn final flash instead

The sheer amount of power that Gohan unleashes during this attack is unreal. He is a walking Kamehameha and obliterates cell.

Gohan also uses this attack against legendary ssj broly

Another variation of Kamehameha, so if your gonna put variants on the lis, at least ORDER THEM RIGHT! Only big bang Kamehameha x100 on this least beats the variant.

15 Body Change

Depends, I think it should be 13, because it is really useful to get a much stronger body, but it is harder to pull off.

16 Kaioken

This technique is just epic! Outputting massive red aura then bulking up and multiplying you're strength. The destructive power is just devastating. If I could have any technique from dbz it would be kaioken!

My favorite move even though it's a power up. The move was bad ass until super saiyan came along. But I don't understand why you can't use it even in ssj form

He did use it in ssj form. he used it against pikkon and that was the last time he ever used it

They just showed it again in DB super. I got hyped for it. It looked insane

17 Omega Blaster

One of the most powerful moves ever used in dbz history, can destroy a planet first of all... What else do you need? It's used by a saiyan who's power is limitless so either you let him kill you fast or we could wait until you run out of power, broly& omega blaster best combo, against spirit bomb um could be a tie but against any other, forget about it just let broly destroy you quickly

It took a Son Goku Family Kamehameha Wave to stop it with Kid Trunks interrupting the stream of Broly's Eraser Cannon blasts charging the destructive green globe that is the nightmarish planet-busting move THE OMEGA BLASTER - BOOM SHAKA LAKA! BEST MOVE EVER!

18 Instant Transmission

It may not be a fancy attack beam or disk, but it is by the most useful technique in DBZ. If you were losing a fight and wanted to take a breather, instant transmition. Get a senzu bean or rethink your strategy, and you're good to go.

You can't kill someone that you can't catch.

You cannot attack someone that you cannot catch, unless you know the technique yourself then you can be near where ever they went to, though you need to sence energy for it to work.

Teleportation kicks ass

19 Galick Gun

The person under my has no idea what they're talking about.

Galick gun is a move that should be at number two because spirit ball is weaker and galick gun did not need everyone power

This move easily compares with the kamehameha, and just go look back at the buu saga when majin vegeta uses it to push back the kamehameha and in that scene it shows that they are both equaly strong.

This should be hell on number 3
or I am gonna final shine you

20 Masenko

This attack is badass but weak and gohan never uses it since he is grown up this should go down.

If you don't know what attack this is, its special beam cannon

Come on this one was a badass

King piccolo had it, then gohan. Great attacl!

21 Stardust Breaker

No way this can be at 22...It's by far the coolest attack I've seen in Dragon Ball. Only Big Bang Kamehameha can beat it in power but Stardust Breaker looks more awesome.

If ssj4 gogeta did star dust breaker what do you think would happen

Magic attack and new to dbz attack moves

It has the power of multiples stars so that's multiple supernovas(star not frieze move.not even the big bang Kamehameha could beat it in power because that attack is more powerful than one supernova(star not frieze move.

22 Death Beam

Death beam is the best technique of frieza after super nova and death ball. It can destroy any super powerful man easy enough.

Death beam is a slick and flashy attack used by raising one finger and just firing away. Awesome!

Awesome attack! Love it

23 Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack

Best move by gotenks, the best kid character - favouredlist314

Awesomeness infinity, love Gotenks.

Super cool attack of pure awesomeness this should be in the top tens. Most creative attack too, not another boring beam of ki out of your hands...

24 Spirit Sword

This was used by vegito

Has the most sickest animation and it's a sword but its not my favorite move final kamehama if I was to be a character his name will be Chaoxss and those will be my two ultimates. I'm sorry if this is long but if I was to create my own ultimate it would be named Contiegue Spirit which is like saiyan spirit but lighter blue and stronger and Chaoxss The Legendary Super Saiyan which I am A The Legendary Super Saiyan will prevale

25 Neo Tri-Beam

Held back semi perfect cell with a human using it

Compared to to the users powerlevel, this attack was ridiculous powerful. Semi-perfect Cell was multiple times stronger than Tien, and still he was pushing him down strike after another.

26 Dragon Fist

Um how could anyone leave one of the most awesome attacks of all time? It's super awesome in budokai 3 and budokai tenkaichi when ssj4 goku does it. Unleash the power of a dragon upon your enemies. In budokai 3 he absorbs the power of the spirit bomb and uses it as a dragon fist. Pure amazing

I don't know in my opinion it's the best should be at least in top 5

One of the best attacks

This is one of the most powerful moves he destoyed android super seventeen with it and to be honest this should be in the top 3

27 Time Freeze
28 Fusion Dance

Really? When Janemba was beating up Goku and Vegeta, what technique did they use? The Fusion Dance! Then, they formed the mighty Gogeta, who easily defeated Janemba without a scratch! When Trunks and Goten wanted to be strong, what did they use? The Fusion Dance! They formed into the awesome Gotenks, who can go SSJ3 and actually gave Super Buu a challenge! Come on, Gogeta can easily deflect the Big Bang, he can easily take in a Kamehameha, he can LITERETLY eat the Hell's Flash, any True Dragonball Fan will instantly say the Fusion Dance is the best skill ever done.

My favorite character, Gotenks was formed by this technique! Why isn't this in the top ten!

Bad assume move

29 Paralyze Spell
30 Wolf Fang Fist

Sure its not the most powerful of all the moves but its still strong as hell and looks badass, plus yamcha is the internet meme king.


31 Bulma's Slap

This slap put the most notorious gangster in his ass.
Goku can't stand a chance against Bulma's slap.



Hell yeah bitches

32 Sadistic 18

Well sadistic 18 is very ruthless attack that killed future gohan. I'll rate it top7 for its ruthlessness

33 Self Destruction

That is just stupidious

34 Final Shine Attack

Yeah this move is the strongest move from Vegeta final flash isn't stronger than this it is much bigger and stronger

And "I" admire your ability to DIE! - TheDarkOne_221b

This attack is even more stronger than the final flash this is vegetas final move in ssj4

35 Dodon-Ray

Ahh, come on! It was pretty cool right, right...

36 Hellzone Grenade

That move was pretty damn cool but not the best. Piccolo is of my favourite characters

I can't believe this isn't higher. Most moves are just a generic energy blast with an ok name, but this was a clever (and unexpected the first time) attack with a badass name!

37 Super Galick Gun


38 God of Destruction's Rampage

Lord Beerus used this,he would've destroyed Earth with it

39 Dirty Fireworks

Dirty Fireworks EXPLODES the target's body!

This is what Vegeta used to kill Cui!
This is what Freeza used to kill Krillin! - DKM

40 Buster Cannon
41 Gigantic Omega
42 Human Extinction Attack

Performed by Super Buu to extinct all humans

43 Final Explosion
44 Hadouken

For some reason I find it hilarious that this is on here. On number 32 for that matter! - Immersed24

But this is from street fighter. Oh well.😄

45 Hell's Flash

I had always loved Android #16. He's such a cool character. He beat the crap out of Cell by using this move.

46 Enlarge
47 Solar Flare

It's swag and effectiveness are over 9,000!

Yea it preety overpowerde

The coolest looking attack ever.
Totally blinds your opponent allowing you to sneakily finish him off

48 Double Sunday

This was actually a pretty impressive attack. It even blew Piccolo's arm off.

49 Heat Dome Attack

Destroyed cell?

50 Candy Beam

Come on it can turn you into candy this should be in the top ten

Turn u into chocolate
