"Non-believers huh? I might just have to show you."
Frieza raises his hand and opens it to release a giant Exploding Wave.
While easily avoidable, Death Storm causes large scale planetary destruction and a very large tsunami that travels in a large radius in all directions. Frieza uses this attack against Gohan, Krillin, Dende, and Vegeta after transforming into his second form, in order to back his claim that his power level in his second form is over one million after Vegeta expresses his disbelief. They are all knocked into the air, but manage to survive, though Krillin is slightly injured because a rock had scraped his head. The island on which the attack is performed explodes, leaving only a small island which Frieza remains on.

- The technique is similar to Nappa's Volcano Explosion albeit Nappa only uses two fingers. In one of the English dubs and English translated manga, Frieza tauntingly remarks that even a Saiyan is capable of performing a technique like this, obviously referring to the weakness of a Saiyan's attacks in comparison to his.
