In the manga, third form Frieza instead uses a similar but somewhat different attack named Shockwave From the Fingertips.
Frieza prepares a Death Beam on his index and middle fingers on both of his hands, and then he fires multiple Death Beams at the opponent at a very rapid rate, inflicting a great deal of damage.
In the anime Frieza uses this attack during his battle against Piccolo. The attack is too fast for Piccolo to dodge or even see and he is left severely beaten. However, Gohan soon explodes with rage and attacks Frieza with the Full Power Masenko, saving Piccolo from certain death.
Later, in his final form, Frieza rapid fires finger beams and eye beams while trying to force Goku into lava. The pose he takes while firing his finger beams is similar to the one he uses when firing the Crazy Finger Beam in his third form.
Appearances in games
The attack appears in a cutscene in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai, and it is a finisher for Frieza's Dragon Rush in his third form in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3. The technique was named Crazy Finger Beam in the Budokai Tenkaichi series, where it is Frieza's Ultimate Blast in his third form. Named Death Bullet, it is a special attack that can be shot a total of nine times in Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit. The attack is called Chuckle Beams in Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World, where it is notably used in a mini-game. In Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z, in addition to regular Death Bullets fired either as a single blast or multiple in the form of a Crazy Finger Beam, Frieza can use a stronger variant of the single Death Bullet called Full Power Death Bullet. It is Third Form Frieza's Super attack in Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle.
