The Hypnosis Technique (催眠の術, Saimin no Jutsu) is used to hypnotize and control the mind of the target.


The technique is used by Fortuneteller Baba to confuse a policeman by staring into his eyes in an anime filler, making him let Konkichi speak with Goku about his bank-robbery innocence.


Baba uses a Hypnosis Technique on a policeman

The technique is used by Baba's brother Master Roshi (disguised as Jackie Chun) when he fought Man-Wolf in the 22nd World Martial Arts Tournament. Man-Wolf could not turn back to a human because Roshi destroyed the moon with a MAX Power Kamehameha to return Great Ape Goku to normal during the 21st World Martial Arts Tournament. Master Roshi uses the Hypnosis Technique on Man-Wolf to convince him that Krillin's head is the moon. The Hypnosis Technique works and Man-Wolf turns back to a human.

In Dragon Ball GT, Hell Fighter 17 uses this technique to brainwash Android 17, who himself briefly uses it on Android 18 before fusing with Hell Fighter 17.
