First, Beerus raises his hand over his opponent's head, and proceeds to flick them on the forehead, knocking the enemy back several meters with no sign of effort while dealing a great amount of damage. This attack is a simple case of humiliating the opponent as the user has way more raw power.
This technique was first used in Beerus' short fight with Super Saiyan 3 Goku in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods. Challenging Beerus to a short sparring match, Goku transforms into Super Saiyan 3 and charges towards him, teleporting behind him and throwing a punch, which was easily countered. After throwing Goku overhead, Beerus suddenly appears in front of Goku and uses Headshot, knocking the Saiyan back a considerable distance and inflicting considerable damage. Later during the battle between Super Saiyan God Goku and Beerus, after grabbing Beerus, Goku uses Headshot on the god to get back at him for having previously used it against Goku.
Beerus later uses it to defeat Gotenks, after smacking the fused half-Saiyan's arm several times he finishes him off using Headshot to hit him into the wall.
Appearance in games
Headshot was named in Dragon Ball: Xenoverse and is the God of Destruction Beerus' Evasive Skill. It can also be learned by the Future Warrior by taking Beerus on as a Master and completing Beerus' Training Qualification Mission.
In Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden, it appears as Beerus' Blitz Attack.
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Headshot returns as Beerus' Evasive Skill in his God of Destruction Clothes 1 Skillset. It can also be obtained by the Future Warrior (Xenoverse 2) as a reward in Parallel Quest 69: "God of Destruction and His Master".
- In the Naruto series, the Legendary Sanin Tsunade uses a very similar technique which consists of a simple finger flick to the forehead capable of launching a person a considerable distance due to Tsunade's monstrous strength. It was used on the series protagonist, Naruto Uzumaki during a brief fight between the him and Tsunade over Tsunade's negative attitude and her refusal to accept the title of Fifth Hokage, which occurred in the Naruto manga and anime a couple years before the release of Battle of Gods. In both cases, a simple attack (forehead flick) is uses to demonstrate how outclassed the protagonist (Goku and Naruto) is compared to their respective opponents (Beerus & Tsunade).
