"Who did I kill? Trunks?"
— Cell ("A Hero's Farewell")

Full Power Death Beam[2] (フルパワーデスビーム) is a full-powered version of the Death Beam used by Cell in his Super Perfect form.


The user extends his index finger forward and fires a Death Beam that is slightly bigger and more powerful than the original. The technique is performed by Super Perfect Cell under the name "Perfect Death Beam" due to some of his cells originating from the technique's presumed inventor King Cold.

After self-destructing on King Kai's planet and regenerating himself, Super Perfect Cell returns to Earth by using Instant Transmission and uses Perfect Death Beam to randomly kill Future Trunks, much to the shock and surprise of the rest of the Z Fighters.

Appearances in video games

The attack is briefly seen in a cutscene in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai where Super Perfect Cell randomly fires the attack at Future Trunks. The attack was named Full Power Death Beam in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3, where it is one of the Blast 2 attacks of King Cold and Super Perfect Cell, and the only Finger Beam attack in the game that is clashable; the color of the Full Power Death Beam is originally yellow when Cell performs the move in Dragon Ball Z, whereas its color is changed to purple whenever Cell or King Cold perform the move in Budokai Tenkaichi 3. The Full Power Death Beam also appears in Dragon Ball Z: Raging Blast 2. In Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z, this attack also appears as one of Perfect Cell's Super Attacks named Perfect Death Beam and also Final Form Cooler uses a large purple Death Beam attack that's similar as well.



Piercing Beam in the DBZ Collectible Card Game

  • Cell's attack appears in the Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game as part of the card "Namekian Piercing Beam" ; it is an energy attack which, if successful, discards one of the opponent's allies in play and lowers their anger level by one.
