Death Ball (デスボール) is Frieza's ultimate attack, where he lights a spark of energy on his index finger. Once enough energy is gathered, this spark may grow to the size of a small moon and is thrown towards the target. Typically, this attack is used to destroy planets or as a last-ditch effort to kill an opponent.
Chilled uses a variation of this attack in an attempt to kill Bardock and destroy Planet Plant after Bardock turned into a Super Saiyan. He uses both hands to create and throw it. It is very similar to Frieza's "Destroy The Planet!" Death Ball technique, but glowing orange like a Supernova.
Kuriza uses a Death Ball the shape of an enormous orange chestnut with a face on it.
The Supernova was to be Cooler's trump card versus Goku in the film Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge and, unlike Frieza's version of the Supernova, Cooler's can be created near instantly. His attack is pushed back at him and he is subsequently pushed by the force of it and Goku's Kamehameha into the Sun. In the film Dragon Ball Z: The Return of Cooler, a Meta-Cooler uses a lesser version of the Supernova while fighting Goku on New Namek. This was dodged via Instantaneous Movement.
Black Hole Death BallEdit
The regular Death Ball charged on the index finger. It was named the first Dragon Ball Z: Super Butōden.
Destroy The Planet!Edit
Main article: Destroy The Planet!
A much larger version of the Death Ball. Frieza used this attack during his battle against Super Saiyan Goku in an attempt to destroy Planet Namek so Goku would not be able to breathe in space. However, the planet was not entirely destroyed because Frieza held back too much power, but the tyrant revealed that Namek will explode in five minutes.
100% Death BallEdit
Main article: 100% Death Ball
A full-powered version of the Death Ball. Frieza only used this attack once on Goku while he was underwater. Even though Goku managed to deflect the 100% Death Ball, it still destroyed another planet. It is one of the strongest versions of the Death Ball.
Appearances in Video GamesEdit
The Death Ball technique appears in almost every single game that Frieza appears in. Frieza can use this attack in games such as Dragon Ball Z Arcade, the Butōden series, Budokai series, Dragon Ball Z: Taiketsu, the Budokai Tenkaichi series, Super Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai, Battle Stadium D.O.N, Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai - Another Road, the Raging Blast series, Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi, Dragon Ball Heroes, and Dragon Ball: Tap Battle. It is his Ultimate K.O. in the Supersonic Warriors series, where he uses the Destroy The Planet! variation.
