Dashing Punch is a rush attack used by Broly in his Super Saiyan form and Legendary Super Saiyan Form, and was retained with his clone Bio-Broly. It is sometimes included as part of his Revenge Demon technique.

Overview

Upon assuming a semi-crucified pose while levitating, also utilizing either an aura or his energy shield, Broly attacks the opponent by rushing at them at high speed to land a punch. When in Legendary Super Saiyan Form, he simply rushes at the opponent and proceeds to punch him.

Bio-Broly strikes Android 18 with a Dashing Punch

Broly uses this attack in retaliation for being knocked into a lake on New Planet Vegeta during his rage-induced battle against Goku late at night. However, Goku manages to kick Broly in the face in self-defense, which, outside of slightly bloodying his mouth, did not faze him at all and he continued the fight. He later attempted to use the Dashing Punch against Goku late into the fight twice as a Legendary Super Saiyan: The first when about to land the final blow on Goku (only for Goku, who had been empowered by Vegeta and with Trunks, Gohan, and Piccolo giving up the last of their ki, to catch it before it could connect) and the second time during their final confrontation, although Broly simply ends up brushing Goku's side, with Goku countering by punching Broly in his old wound, taking him down for the count.

On Earth seven years later, after bursting out of his icy tomb, he uses the attack on Videl at Natade Village in response to Videl telling him off for recklessly endangering innocents in the vicinity. Videl barely manages to dodge his punch, with Broly proceeding to smirk at her, intimidating her before she is caught in a grapple and thrown. Shortly thereafter, he incorporates the Dashing Punch into the Revenge Demon technique he uses against Goten and Trunks, upon becoming infuriated at the former's presence and resemblance to Goku.

Broly's clone, Bio-Broly, later utilized the Dashing Punch on Android 18, sending her flying back.
