Burning Attack (バーニングアタック) is one of Future Trunks' signature attacks. Future Trunks performs a series of rapid arm movements before placing his palms forward, with the thumbs and index fingers touching each other to form a diamond shape. Then, he fires an energy sphere from his palms towards the opponent.
In the past, he uses it to distract Mecha Frieza so that he could slice him into pieces. When it is fired against Mecha Frieza to distract him, Frieza dodges the attack, saying "You challenge me with that low level technique?", then Trunks appears above him and killed him with his sword.
Appearances in Video GamesEdit
Burning Attack is seen in various games, almost always accompanying Trunks, such as Dragon Ball Z Gaiden: Saiyajin Zetsumetsu Keikaku, the Butōden series, Dragon Ball Z: The Legend (where the attack encircles the opponent and explodes), Dragon Ball Z: Taiketsu, Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors, and the Budokai Tenkaichi series. Even in Dragon Ball Z: Legendary Super Warriors, Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury and Dragon Ball GT: Transformation, Present Trunks has this attack from the time he is playable. Future Gohan uses this attack in Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai - Another Road.
Burning Attack is used in Future Trunks' ultimate move in the Budokai series. In Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 and Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World, he uses it in conjunction with his sword in the Burning Slash technique. In this video game series it is an enormous wave of energy that decimates the entire field, while in Dragon Ball Z: Sagas and the Legacy of Goku series, it is a weak blast of energy.
Burning Attack is the first offensive technique performed by Time Patrol Trunks in the computer game Dragon Ball Online. When Time Patrol Trunks uses the technique in a cinematic cut of player's tutorial, he performs the traditional series of rapid arm movements and stance; however the color (blue) and power differ because he performs it in his base form. The actual skill, still blue in color, is learned at level 44 by Sword Masters.
