King Piccolo uses it to prevent Goku from using his Power Pole to dodge his Explosive Demon Wave. Piccolo uses it to destroy some falling debris before it falls on a woman and her child. Vegeta uses a version called Galick Beam. Yamcha uses one in an Energy Clash against Tien Shinhan's Tri-Beam during their training on Kami's Lookout. Nappa uses a Finger Beam of electricity when attacking a city in Dragon Ball Z anime filler during the three hours wait for Goku. Cui is seen injuring a boy named Bun with a Finger Beam during the latter's flashback. The Namekian Elder Moori uses finger beams to destroy the scouters of Frieza and his soldiers (one of soldiers being Dodoria). Jeice and Burter use Finger Beams as part of their Crasher Cannon technique. Captain Ginyu uses a barrage version called Visionary Attack against Goku. Turles fires his finger blasts from his index and middle fingertips, and uses it to attack Icarus in order to make Gohan angry and draw out his Great Ape form. The evil Namekian Lord Slug uses a Finger Beam to kill his henchman Commander Zeeun for making a foolish comment regarding Lord Slug's age. Salza used it on various occasions while on Earth with Cooler, and can even use the five shot version Scatter Finger Beam.
The Finger Beam is also a signature move used by the duo Future Android 17 and Future Android 18 on various occasions, notably during Future Krillin's assassination, during the destruction of West City and its people, and in the battles with Future Gohan and Future Trunks. Android 13 is also capable of firing finger beams, with the beams being large enough to virtually eclipse Goku. Zangya, Bido and Bujin use red finger beams against Gohan (although Bido also uses a two handed version of the Scatter Finger Beam called Brave Gatling). Super Saiyan Gotenks and Piccolo use Finger Beams to fry pieces of Super Buu after he was blasted by Gotenks' Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack, however, the Majin is able to regenerate. Goku fires a finger blast inside Buu while Vegeta uses his Galick Beam.
Super Buu's Finger Beam technique looks similar to his Vanishing Beam technique. He uses the attack against Gotenks, who splits back into Goten and Trunks right before the blast hits him. He uses it again in an attempt to kill Dende and Mr. Satan, but the blast is destroyed by Tien Shinhan's Tri-Beam. Kid Buu is seen using a Finger Beam to kill Alpha-seijins during a flashback, as well as to destroy planets.
In Dragon Ball Super, Gohan is shown using a Finger Beam, titling it "Great Saiyaman Beam", to knock out one of the Duo of Robbers who was possessed by Watagash. This forced Watagash out of his body and fleed for the time being.
During the Tournament of Power, Goku uses his own variant, in Super Saiyan God, against Caulifla and Kale, where he points his finger in a gun-like fashion and fires ki-blasts - only for them to dodge.
Omega Shenron uses the Finger Beam to destroy Bulma's Blutz Wave Generator and during his battle against Goku and Vegeta in their Super Saiyan 4 forms (Omega Shenron uses yellow, red and green Finger Beams and also uses a red version of the Finger Blitz Barrage).
