Krillin charges a first Destructo Disc, and then he throws in rapid succession a series of discs which have the ability to cut the opponent apart. Another variation of the move sees Krillin throwing a single Destructo Disc that splits into numerous smaller discs that attack the opponent from all directions.
Krillin uses this attack against Frieza in his second form. After successfully cutting Frieza's tail with a single Destructo Disc, Krillin tries the Chain Destructo Disc, but Frieza dodges at the last second. Krillin then proceeds to try the second variation of the Chain Destructo Disc against the tyrant, but only succeeds in stalling Frieza briefly.
