Milky Cannon (ミルキーキャノン Miruki Kyanon) is an energy wave technique used by Captain Ginyu.


Captain Ginyu holds his right or left hand forwards, and then releases a strong purple Energy wave from it. This attack is quite powerful as it makes a large crater on Namek. Milky Cannon is used by Captain Ginyu many times during his fight with Goku. In the anime, Ginyu also fires a Milky Cannon at Jeice as a warning not to interrupt again in his fight against Goku.

It is also used in Dragon Ball Z Arcade. In Ultimate Battle 22, in addition to the regular Milky Cannon, Ginyu uses an overhand variation called Painful Awakening.

In Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, it is one of Ginyu's super skills. When trapped in Ginyu's body, the Future Warrior can also use the skill, and they can learn it by taking Ginyu on as a Master and completing his second training mission. As part of the GT DLC Pack 1, Nappa gains a 4th moveset which features the Milky Cannon as one of his skills. This version of Nappa takes Ginyu's place as a member of the Neo Ginyu Force.
