Frieza uses the attack during an anime-only segment in Dragon Ball Z. He uses it to kill one of the three Warrior-type Namekians who came at Grand Elder Guru's house to help Nail. After using the Whirlwind Blow, Frieza catches one of the Namekians by the neck and begins to strangle him, before letting him fall and hitting him with a Death Beam..
Cooler uses this attack as part of his Chaotic Dead End attack in order to take down Piccolo.
Later, Ghost Cooler and Ghost Frieza charge a Death Laser and Death Beam together with Ghost Turles' energy wave and Ghost Slug's finger beam to try to exterminate the Z Fighters while flying above the Tongari Tower. However, the Ghost Warriors combined attack is interrupted by the arrival from Bulma's airplane that brings with it the antidote capsules against the Destron Gas.
