Mouth Energy Waves are several almost identical attacks used by different characters in the same way: by blasting a large amount of energy from their mouth. It is a very swift technique and quite powerful with exploding and piercing properties depending on the way it is used.
Mouth Energy Wave can be considered a generic term for any energy beam shot from the mouth. It is used by several Namekian characters towards the later part of Dragon Ball. In the King Piccolo Saga, Tambourine uses it to destroy Goku's original Flying Nimbus, and King Piccolo uses it to destroy Shenron after having his youth restored. Later in the Piccolo Jr. Saga, Piccolo uses this attack in the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament after using his Giant Form and again as a sudden attack to pierce a large hole through Goku's right shoulder; he also uses it in the Vegeta Saga to quickly destroy the final Saibaman, as well as in the movie Dragon Ball Z: The World's Strongest to destroy a Bio-Man (Explosive Breath Cannon). Arlian Guards use this against Nappa and Vegeta. Dodoria uses it to try to kill Bardock, but the Saiyan survived, albeit heavily injured, as well as to kill one Namekian child, Cargo, in the anime (in manga, Frieza's Death Beam did the deed) and to kill a Warrior-type Namekian.
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, the Future Warrior can learn several Mouth Energy Wave techniques (Nappa's Break Cannon, Recoome Eraser Gun, Majin Buu's Innocence Breath, Super Buu's Ill Flash, Gotenks' Victory Cannon, and Super Buu's Dimension Cannon). Super Buu's Vice Shout (known as Dimension Cannon) is depicted a Mouth Energy Wave in Xenoverse.
N'cha Cannon is Arale Norimaki's secret weapon. The N'cha Cannon is a very powerful beam shot from the mouth. To use it, Arale takes a deep breath before yelling out her signature greeting, 'n'cha' (or another greeting, on a rare occasion) very loudly. Though this is devastating, using it repeatedly, or when low in battery power, can drain her energy supply and render her immobile. Arale uses this technique in the original Dr. Slump series, the reboot, and as well as in the video game Dragon Ball: Origins 2.
As seen on several occasions and in many flashbacks, Saiyans in Great Ape and Golden Great Ape forms, as well as other giant characters, can use Mouth Energy Waves of enormously devastating power. These kinds of mouth blasts are powerful to the point of resulting in explosions, causing great destruction. Also, Nappa once uses Mouth Energy Waves without having to turn into a Great Ape, his ultimate technique, the Break Cannon.
There are three basic variations of Chou Makouhou in the Budokai Tenkaichi series:
- Chou Makouhou – Chou Makouhou (lit. "Super Demon Blast Cannon") is the generic name for the Mouth Energy Wave in the Budokai Tenkaichi games. It is a common Blast 2 energy wave, firing in a straight line and then can clash with other similar Blast 2 attacks. Great Ape Bardock's version is called Ultra Rebellion Cannon (超リベリオンキャノン) in the arcade game Dragon Ball Heroes.
- Chou Makouhou Barrage – A rapid fire version of Chou Makouhou. The mouth blast equivalent of Full Power Energy Barrage Wave.
- Chou Makousen – A mouth blast that sweeps from left to right are being fired. Used only by Great Ape characters and Hirudegarn.
- Super Gigantic Cannon - An Eraser Cannon in the form of a Chou Makouhou. It is Great Ape Broly's Special Attack in Dragon Ball Heroes.
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, Great Apes have two mouth blast techniques:
- Great Ape Beam - A sweeping mouth blast used by Great Apes in Dragon Ball Xenoverse as a Super Skill.
- Super Great Ape Beam - A ultimate skill variation where the Great Ape jumps into the air then fires a super powerful mouth blast. Used by Great Apes as an Ultimate Skill in Dragon Ball Xenoverse.
Giga Meteor Storm
Explosive Breath Cannon
Explosive Breath Cannon is Piccolo's rushing attack that ends with a mouth blast. He used this to defeat the last Saibaman. The blast is also similar to the one he used to critically injure Goku at the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament.
Super Galick Blaster
The Super Galick Blaster is Great Ape Vegeta's variation of the Mouth Energy Wave. He used this technique during his battle against Goku, and it was named in Dragon Ball Heroes.
Energy Cannon (エネルギー砲 Enerugī-hō) is Dodoria's most frequently used technique. He uses it mainly as a finishing move, which ensures the fact that mouth blast is one of the most powerful techniques in his arsenal. Dodoria uses it in an attempt to destroy Bardock in the TV special Dragon Ball Z: Bardock - The Father of Goku. He later uses it numerous times on Namek: to kill one of the three Namekian warriors in Moori's village, on Krillin, Dende and Gohan. In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Dodoria has a variation of this technique called Dodoria Beam.
Recoome Eraser Gun
Recoome Eraser Gun is one of Recoome's super attacks. This technique can practically erase anything in its path, as it did when it was shown to be powerful enough to warp parts of Namek's terrain despite having been stopped beforehand.
Nappa used his version, the Break Cannon, several times in the series, notably against Goku. Super Buu used his version, Ill Flash, on Gotenks as a surprise attack and laughs. At the result only for Super Saiyan 3 Gotenks to use his version of the same move, the Revenge Cannon (also called Victory Cannon), back at him and managed to injure Super Buu to some extent, but the Majin was able to regenerate.
The Crimson Scream is Lord Luud's version of the Mouth Energy Wave. It was named in Dragon Ball Heroes.
The Mouth Cannon is an energy sphere version of the Mouth Energy Wave used by Great Nameks in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. While using the Become Giant Awoken Skill, Namekians gain access to three Super Skills that allow them to fire their Mouth Cannon at either short, mid, or long range.
