"Nowhere for you to run! This is the end!"
Piccolo charges up and fires several energy spheres randomly in the opponent's direction, disregarding accuracy and with no intent on actually hitting the enemy. With efficient ki control, the multiple energy spheres are suspended in the air, completely surrounding them. Finally, Piccolo commands the energy spheres, which change from a yellow to purple color, to rapidly spin around the opponent and inevitably rain down on them with a vicious onslaught from every direction, filling the sky with a blinding light and inflicting a massive amount of damage.
Usage and Power
Piccolo uses this attack during his battle with Android 17. After Android 17 manages to dodge his Masenko and other energy attacks, Piccolo descends to the ground and fires his Scatter Shot up at Android 17. At first, Android 17 is clueless at what Piccolo was doing, but he is soon shocked to see Piccolo's blasts surrounding him. Piccolo then blasts Android 17 with the Hellzone Grenade, creating a huge explosion. Piccolo believes he defeated Android 17, but as the smoke clears, the Android uses an Android Barrier to block Piccolo's attack, much to the Namekian's dismay.
During their battle on Namek, after Frieza dodges Vegeta's various energy wave attacks, Vegeta uses a Super Energy Wave Volley technique similar to the Hellzone Grenade, however, the tyrant is easily able to dodge every explosion. Vegeta finally stops the attack just as Frieza teleports in front of the Saiyan prince, which in a moment of despair is forced to appeal (futilely) to the Final Burst Cannon in an attempt to annihilate Frieza. After that, Frieza gives Vegeta a beating. Vegeta also uses a similar attack on Super Buu, though the Majin is able to deflect this attack using an Energy Shield, sending the attack flying and creating explosions across the wasteland.

"Attack your enemy from all sides with a swarm of powerful Ki Blasts!"
