Frieza fires the attack at Goku, who is underwater

Later, Frieza uses the technique in his final form against Goku while the latter was underwater. After getting thrown into the ocean by Frieza, Goku quickly swims up to get out of the water. However, Frieza launches many miniature blasts at Goku's head every time he pops up from the water, forcing Goku to swim back in the ocean so that he can not get any air. Goku avoids the attack and pops up from the water, only for Frieza to stomp him back in the ocean. This attack also destroyed several of the islands on Namek.[4]

Frieza uses his Energy Punch on Goku

He uses the technique again in his final form during his onslaught of attacks in his futile attempt to stop Super Saiyan Goku, creating a wall of flames that fully surrounds the opponent. The colossal nova of fire created by the blasts fired in rapid succession is even seen by Gohan who is miles away, flying Piccolo to safety. Despite being at the center of the enormous wave of flames, Goku is left completely unharmed by the attack, leaving Frieza awestruck. Soon after this, Frieza again tries to burn Goku, however this time he uses charged Ki Blast, but this attack also ends up failing.[5]

Frieza uses this attack twice in his 100% Power form during the battle against Super Saiyan Goku on Namek. In the first try when Frieza fires the Killer Ball, Goku fires a one-handed energy sphere to block Frieza's attack. In the second try, when Goku barrages Frieza with the Continuous Kamehameha, the tyrant moves behind the Saiyan and uses the Killer Ball again, though Goku manages to deflect it.[6]
