"Hope you aren't afraid of heights."
— Frieza in "Awaken, Legendary Warrior! Goku the Super Saiyan!"

Death Psycho Bomb,[1][2] also called "I Won't Let You Escape with Your Life!" (生かしては帰さんぞ; Ikashite wa Kaesanzo), is a technique used by Frieza in his final form. Frieza catches the opponent with a small, invisible energy sphere shot from his index finger in a fashion similar to his Death Beam. Then, he raises his arm upward, controlling and pulling the opponent high in the air with telekinesis. Finally, Frieza clenches his hand into a fist, detonating the opponent's ki and causing them to explode.



Krillin before exploding

Frieza uses this attack to kill Krillin on planet Namek. After barely surviving Goku's Large Spirit Bomb, an injured and angered Frieza nearly kills Piccolo with a Death Beam fired through his chest. As Gohan and Krillin are about to flee to Goku's spaceship by the Saiyan's orders, Frieza kills Krillin with the "I Won't Let You Escape with Your Life!" technique, shocking Goku and Gohan. Enraged by the death of his best friend, Goku transforms into a Super Saiyan, orders Gohan to take Piccolo to his spaceship, and prepares to battle the awe-stricken Frieza.

After his revival in the Resurrection F movie, Frieza uses a very similar attack to telekinetically hurl Tagoma into space after he suggested Frieza ignore Goku.

Appearances in games

This technique appears as Frieza's meteor attack Frieza Psychokinesis (フリーザサイコキネシス) in Dragon Ball Z: Buyū Retsuden and as one of his special attacks Psychokinesis Attack (サイコキネシスアタック) in Dragon Ball Z: Hyper Dimension. It also appears in Dragon Ball Z: Idainaru Son Goku Densetsu under the name Psychokinesis Bomb (サイコキネシスボム)

"I Won't Let You Escape with Your Life!" was named in Dragon Ball: Raging Blast, where it appears as one of Frieza's Super Attacks in his final form. In Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2, Frieza does the same thing, though it looks like his hand is more gripped. He also gives the evil grin. When the move is cast, it does not home, is a very small circle projectile, and if blocked, it forms a mushroom cloud.

In J-Stars Victory Vs, it appears as one of Frieza's special attacks.

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, it appears under the name Death Psycho Bomb and is one of Frieza's Super Skills in his Final Form. It is among the few skills in the game that cannot be learned or obtained by the Future Warrior. However it is not exclusive to Frieza as one of the random Frieza's race Time Patroller NPCs (David & Charles) has the skill listed as part of their skillset.

"Capture an opponent with psychic power and attack them. The trap will appear wherever they're moving toward."
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 in-game description

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, it returns under the name Death Psycho Bomb and as one of Frieza's Super Skills in his Final Form. Unlike in Xenoverse, it can be obtained by the Future Warrior (Xenoverse 2) in Parallel Quest 33: "Earth in Danger!". It can be used by the Future Warrior regardless of race.


  • Ironically, it was due the success of this technique in killing Krillin, that gave rise to the very Super Saiyan Frieza had always feared.
  • In the FUNimation dub for "Transformed at Last", Frieza shortly after using the technique to murder Krillin, cracks a dark joke by saying "Pop goes the weasel!", a reference to the English nursery rhyme and song game of the same name.
