Death Impact (デスインパクト) is an energy wave attack used by Garlic Jr.


First, Garlic Jr. puts his right hand behind and charges a reddish-pink energy sphere. Then, he brings his hand forward and fires the energy sphere in the form of an energy wave at the opponent, inflicting a great amount of damage.

Garlic Jr. uses this technique after he attacked Goku and Piccolo with the Darkness Illusion rush. Later, he uses it in a beam clash against Goku and Piccolo's Combined Energy Wave.[1]

Belly blast

Super Garlic Jr. fires a Death Impact from his belly

Garlic Jr. uses this attack in an attempt to stop Kami and Mr. Popo from escaping to reverse the side effects of the Black Water Mist with the Sacred Water. However, Piccolo appears and deflects the Death Impact away, allowing Kami and Mr. Popo to escape. Garlic Jr. also uses the attack during his battle against Piccolo. Later, during his final confrontation with Gohan, Piccolo and Krillin, Garlic Jr. thrusts his chest forward and releases the massive red beam from his belly to attack Piccolo; this variation is referred to as his Belly Blast by Garlic Jr. and it is called Kyokaika Technique in the Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game. Before being defeated by Gohan, he fires it at Piccolo and Krillin, from his right hand again this time.[2]

Super Garlic Jr. charges the Death Impact in Dragon Ball Heroes

It appears under the generic name Full Power Energy Wave as one of Garlic Jr's special attacks in his base form in Dragon Ball Z: Kyōshū! Saiyan. The technique was named Death Impact in the Budokai Tenkaichi series, as one of Garlic Jr.'s Blast 2 attacks only in his super form (the beam having the appearance of the one he fired from his belly but it is fired from the hand). At least Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3, while powerful, the Death Impact move is not strong enough to push back another beam-based move. The technique is also used and named Death Impact in Dragon Ball Heroes.
