The Black Power Ball is charged by one hand, creating a golden energy sphere with a core of black energy, creating a devastating explosion upon impact. When fired, the energy ball is completely golden with a black outline.
After imprinting Goku's fighting style, the Black Power Ball becomes far more powerful, increasing its destructive capabilities. As Super Saiyan Rosé, the Black Power Ball takes on a pink color instead of being golden and can be converted into an energy wave, with properties similar to a kiai. This was shown to initiate his Divine Lasso against Goku and also used to push away and knock down Future Trunks.
Future Zamasu is also shown to use this attack, albeit in an indigo color. However, the true scope of its power remains unknown as he is only shown using the Energy Ball to combine with Black's. When Black and Zamasu combine their Energy Balls the attack looks like a giant falling meteor, either orange or purple in color, depending on whether or not Black is in his Super Saiyan Rosé form. Its destructive power is also increased exponentially.
- God Splitter (神裂波, Shinretsuha, lit. "Fierce God Wave") - Future Zamasu's variation of the Black Power Ball but indigo in appearance. This variation unlike the ordinary Black Power Ball, can defend against ki blasts. Named in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.

Named in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.

"Fire a Ki Blast in front of you. Perform additional input before the move is released to move above your opponent for a downward slice!"
— Xenoverse 2 Divine Retribution Skill description
It later appears in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 as part of the Super Pack 3 DLC, as two separate variations, one under the name Divine Retribution/God's Punishment usable by Goku Black in his Super Saiyan Rosé form and the other under the name God Splitter used by Zamasu. The Divine Retribution version allows the user to fire either a Black Power Ball or a Violent Fierce God Slicer to chop the opponent in half if additional input is performed before releasing the Ki Blast. The Future Warrior (Xenoverse 2) can obtain Divine Retribution by purchasing it from the TP Medal Shop for 170 TP Medals.
The God Splitter version doubles as a defensive move, capable of blocking ki blasts and functions like a defensive version of the Big Bang Attack. When performed the user creates a large energy sphere in front of them which blocks ki blasts and damages enemies that come in contact with it. The user can also chose to fire the sphere with additional input.
- Despite its name, it's not a variation of the original Power Ball, which is used by Saiyans to create artificial moons to instantly become Great Apes.
