Arm Break (アームブレイク) is a rush attack used by Nappa. Nappa powers up and then charges at the opponent to deliver a powerful punch to their arm, capable of severing it, causing excruciating pain and major damage to the opponent.
Nappa uses this attack during his battle against Tien Shinhan. After powering up to combat the Z Fighters, Nappa chooses to fight Tien first and attacks him, scorching Tien's arm in the process. Nappa then attacks Tien with the Arm Break rush, severing Tien's arm and mortally wounding him.
Appearances in games
Arm Break was named in the Raging Blast games and Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi, where it appears as one of Nappa's Super Attacks. In those video games, the move does not sever the victim's arm, but it is clear that they are in great pain.
In Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, it appears as a super skill under the name Arm Crash and is chargeable. When fully charged it is capable of breaking an opponents guard (a reference to the fact that Tien lost his arm despite bracing himself due to the power of the attack). It is one of Nappa's Super Skills and can be obtained by the Future Warrior in Parallel Quest 05: "Attack of the Saiyans".
