Golden Frieza uses the Golden Death Beam at the climax of his battle with Goku in order to kill the Saiyan, however Vegeta attacks Frieza, and so the tyrant dodges instead of finishing his attack. Frieza attempts to use the attack again to kill Goku when Vegeta passes him to Krillin, however Vegeta redirects it to Sorbet, resulting in the staff officer's death.
- Emperor's Death Beam - A rapid fire version of the Golden Death Beam.
- Grand Death Beam - A barrage of Golden Death Beams fired from each finger that home in on targets, pierce through them and continue locking on to other targets.

- A similar technique is used by Frieza in his final form: once against Gohan during their battle on Namek in Dragon Ball Z, and later in the OVA Dragon Ball: Plan to Eradicate the Super Saiyans. He also uses a yellow Death Beam in the arcade game Dragon Ball: Zenkai Battle Royale, and in one of the promotional trailers for Dragon Ball Heroes.
