Maiden's Burst (乙女バースト) is an Explosive Wave-type technique used by Pan.

Overview

To perform the attack, she screams and releases a large amount of energy from her entire body to knock an opponent back. After performing the attack she does a "striking pose", similar to her father.

Pan uses this attack during her battle against a nameless giant in the 31st World Martial Arts Tournament. After the giant stomped on Pan, the audience were surprised in horror until Pan lifted the giant's humongous foot, unharmed. When a drip of blood begins to pour on her face, she gets angry and unleashes her Maiden's Burst attack, knocking out the giant and declaring her the winner.

Appearances in games

Maiden's Burst was named in Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World and Dragon Ball Heroes, where it is one of Pan's skills. In Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, Pan uses a variation of the technique called Maiden Burst as her Evasive Skill.

In Dragon Ball Fusions, it appears under the name Maiden Burst (not to be confused with Pan's Evasive Skill from the Xenoverse series) as a Special Move. There is also two stronger variants called Super Maiden Burst and Ultimate Maiden Burst which can be learned by most characters that can learn Maiden Burst.[2] It can be used by several characters such as Gine, Bulla, Bulpan, Great Saiyaman 2, Great Saiyaman 12, Pandel, Towane, and several others. Tekka can learn by performing EX-Fusion with a character that can learn or already knows the technique. Maiden Burst and its variations are all classified as melee attacks in Dragon Ball Fusion which combined with their range makes them perfect for ring outs. Additional certain male characters learn a variation called Muscle Burst along with its stronger variants Super Muscle Burst and Ultimate Muscle Burst which are performed in the same manner as Maiden Burst. There is also a combined variation called Muscle Maiden Burst which is a combination of Ultimate Muscle Burst and Ultimate Maiden Burst used by certain EX-Fusions.

Trivia

  • Pan striking a pose while performing this technique is ironic given how much she is shown to dislike posing in video games such as Dragon Ball Fusions where she uses several variations of this technique as well as Five-Way Fusion and EX-Fusion which both involve dance like poses. However Pan does complain about posing to perform fusion.
  • Despite its name, Maiden Burst can be learned by male characters such as Great Saiyaman 12 (who is male like Great Saiyaman) and the male Majin Paopao.
