In the animated version of Dragon Ball: Episode of Bardock, Chilled uses the Supernova-type Death Blaster against Bardock, but his attack is overwhelmed by Bardock's Rebellion Trigger and Chilled is defeated.
Frieza raises his hand upward and gathers yellow energy into his hand. He then aims his arm at the desired target and emits an energy wave at the target, inflicting a large amount of damage.
After Future Trunks transforms into a Super Saiyan, Mecha Frieza blasts him with the Death Blaster to no effect. Mecha Frieza, furious to see Future Trunks has sustained no damage, fires the Death Blaster a second time at Trunks, who easily counters it. King Cold is also shocked at Frieza attempting to use the attack, remarking "You'll destroy us all!" when firing it a second time, implying that the attack would have severely devastated the area they were in.
Appearances in games
The Death Blaster was named in the video game Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2, where it is one of Mecha Frieza's Super Attacks. In Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors 2, Meta-Cooler uses a Death Blaster technique which is a smaller variant of the Supernova.
