First, Semi-Perfect Cell extends his hand forward and forms a red sphere of energy. Then, he shouts "Take this!" and fires the attack at the opponent, inflicting a high amount of damage and even creating a large red dome of energy upon contact.
Semi-Perfect Cell uses this attack to destroy an island in order to flush Android 18 out of hiding so that he could absorb her to achieve the perfection he is wanting to. When she did not appear, Semi-Perfect Cell destroyed several islands with many Big Bang Crashes and was about to use the attack again to destroy the island that Android 16 and 18 were hiding on. However, just before he could blow it up, Vegeta and Future Trunks (after receiving a year's worth of training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber) appeared and fought against Semi-Perfect Cell.
