Directory: TechniquesOffensive techniques

Gigantic Rock Throw is a technique commonly used by Great Apes and characters with superhuman strength. The user picks up a boulder in front of them and throws it at the opponent, inflicting considerable damage.



Great Ape Goku throws a tower at Pilaf's plane

The technique is first used by Goku in his Great Ape form against the Pilaf Gang at Pilaf's Castle. He later uses it in the final of the 21st World Martial Arts Tournament, when he transforms again into a Great Ape. It is later used by Ox-King, Bora, and Yajirobe in Dragon Ball. Emperor Pilaf uses this in his Pilaf Machine to attack Goku in the Fortuneteller Baba Saga.

Arale Norimaki's version is called Woohoo! in the video game Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 She uses the technique several times in Dr. Slump: to destroy the moon in "Barber Shop Panic: Part 2", to take down Koita Ojo's ship in "Penguin Village S.O.S.: Part 2", and against the Champ in "Am I Wicked Strong?!" Akane Kimidori wants her to use the technique to stop a pterodactyl who kidnapped Midori Yamabuki in "Stone Age Ho-Yo-Yo", but Arale throws Akane instead, not having her glasses. She also uses the technique in the movie Dragon Ball: Mystical Adventure, to attack General Tao.

In Dragon Ball Z, Great Ape Gohan attempts this attack unintentionally against the injured Goku, Krillin, and Yajirobe. However, hearing his father's voice and Krillin telling him to attack Vegeta, Gohan spots Vegeta and attacks him with the Gigantic Rock Throw, smashing the Saiyan prince onto the ground. On Namek, during a fit of fury, Captain Ginyu launches a gigantic rock at Goku (who is using his Kaio-ken technique), however Goku manages to destroy it with an Explosive Wave. Years later, while on the Sacred World of the Kais with Gohan, Goku uses the technique again, in his base form this time, to test the Z Sword. Ultimate Gohan later uses it, though not as an attack, while searching for a Potara earring through a pile of boulders. In Nekomajin, the demon Jajan uses this to attack the Wombat and Biker duo. Trunks also uses his super strength to lift a pyramid of tiles throwed by Mutchy on Planet Luud. Shortly after, Goku uses the technique in his Golden Great Ape in Dragon Ball GT, throwing a mountain top at Baby Vegeta.

Appearances in games


Arale uses Woohoo! in Budokai Tenkaichi 3

Gigantic Rock Throw is named in the Budokai Tenkaichi series, where it is one of the Blast 2 attacks used by some Great Apes, the Pilaf Machine, and Arale Norimaki but it was given different names in each game of the series; it was named "Gigantic Rock Throw", "Gigant(ic) Rock Throw", and "Gigant Rock Throw" in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 1, Budokai Tenkaichi 2, and Budokai Tenkaichi 3 respectively. Arale can also use this technique in the Nintendo DS game Dragon Ball: Origins 2.

This move appears during battles against Great Apes in the Hero Mode of Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi, as well as in Dragon Ball Heroes and Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z.
