Monster Crush (モンスタークラッシュ) is a rush attack used by Zarbon in his monster form.


Zarbon grabs the opponent by their head and throws them up into the air. Then, he jumps up and slaps the opponent downwards before grabbing them with a piledriver and releasing them as they are sent crashing down into the ground, inflicting a high amount of damage.



Zarbon launches Vegeta downwards

Zarbon uses part of this attack to defeat Vegeta in their first battle on Namek. After releasing himself from Zarbon's grip up in the air, Vegeta descends and tries to recover, only for Zarbon to brutally attack and pummel him again. Zarbon knocks Vegeta downwards and flies after him to attack him with the Monster Crush rush's piledriver, defeating the Saiyan Prince and creating a huge crater that is soon filled with water from a nearby Namekian lake.


Majin Vegeta uses a similar technique

Piccolo (fused with Nail) uses a technique similar to the Monster Crush against Frieza in his second form in the episode "Frieza's Second Transformation". Majin Vegeta also uses a similar technique during his battle against Super Saiyan 2 Goku.
