History

Vegeta double-axe handles Ginyu in Goku's body

Frieza Saga

Vegeta uses this attack during his battle against Captain Ginyu as part of his Wild Hunt rush attack, while Ginyu is in Goku's body. While the Amazing Impact portion of the attack was successful, Vegeta's follow flying charge was interrupted when Ginyu attempts to Body Change with Vegeta, only for Goku to jump in between Vegeta and Ginyu to return to his original body, with Vegeta confused by what had just occurred due to his unfamiliarity with Ginyu's Body Change technique.

Androids Saga

He later uses it again during his battle against Android 19; when Android 19 attacks Vegeta with a barrage of punches and a final headbutt, the Saiyan prince is unfazed and retaliates by smashing Android 19 across the ground with three powerful attacks. Android 19 attempts a surprise attack, but Vegeta dodges it and counters with the "Amazing Impact" rush (while dodging Android 19's attacks in the air), knocking the Android down into the ground and creating a huge crater.

Universe Survival Saga

Vegeta used a shorter version of the rush in the Tournament of Power, to pummel and defeat Hop of Universe 9.

Variations

Vegeta performing the flying charge portion at the end of Wild Impact

  • Wild Hunt - A variation of Amazing Impact used by Vegeta while attacking Ginyu in Goku's Body after killing Jeice. Vegeta starts of the attack with an uppercut that sends the opponent flying then dashes around behind them using an aerial version of Amazing Impact's double kick to knock them further into the air, then flies upward and knocks them to the ground with a Double Axe Handle, before powering up with the arms and legs outstretched (like a star) then finishes the attack with a double fist flying charge. When originally used by Vegeta on Ginyu, the finishing charge portion of the attack was interrupted by Ginyu's failed attempt to switch bodies with Vegeta due to Goku using the opportunity to return to his body. Named in Xenoverse 2 where it appears as a Super Skill for the Future Warrior (Xenoverse 2).

Amazing Impact in Budokai Tenkaichi 3

Amazing Impact was named in the Budokai Tenkaichi video game series, where it is one of Vegeta's Blast 2 attacks in his Super Saiyan form. The attack is performed differently in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2, Budokai Tenkaichi 3, Tenkaichi Tag Team, and the Raging Blast games. The appearance of this attack in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 was taken from the first part of the rush Vegeta uses against Captain Ginyu after Ginyu returned to his original body.

Vegeta also uses dropkick part the technique in Dragon Ball Z: W Bakuretsu Impact and Dragon Ball Heroes.

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse and Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Vegeta will automatically perform the maneuver as one of his combo attacks. As part of the Super Pack 4 DLC in Xenoverse 2, SSGSS Vegito will use Amazing Impact as one of his combos.
