"Non-believers huh? I might just have to show you."
— Frieza in "Fighting Power: One Million??"

Death Storm (ばっ!!!!) is an Exploding Wave technique used by Frieza in his second form.


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.

Frieza using the Death Storm in Raging Blast

Frieza uses this technique while in his final form in the Butōden series. It also appears in Dragon Ball Z: Super Gokuden: Kakusei-Hen under the name Sonic Bomb. The technique was named Death Storm in the Budokai Tenkaichi series and the Raging Blast games, where it is one of second form Frieza's Blast 2 attacks with its color is changed to pink. The technique also appears in Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit. The technique also appears in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z as Frieza's Super Attack in his second form.


  • The technique is similar to Nappa's Volcano Explosion and, in one of the English dubs, Frieza comments even a lowly Saiyan is capable of performing a technique like this.
