First, Tien puts his hands together by the tips of his fingers and thumbs, and zooms in on the target through the triangle in between his hands. Once he gathers enough energy, he shouts "Tri-Beam, ha!" and fires many Tri-Beams at the opponent while repeating "ha!" multiple times, depending on how much he repeats the attack. However, the major drawback of the technique, as with the original, is that it drains Tien's life force, greatly harming and being able to kill him with repeated use.
Tien used this attack to distract Cell in his Semi-Perfect form so Android 18 could escape with an injured Android 16. Although Cell was significantly more powerful than Tien and the Neo Tri-Beam did not inflict any real damage, Cell was unable to escape the repeated attacks and kept getting blasted into the ground. However, overusing the Neo Tri-Beam took a toll on Tien and he eventually collapsed from exhaustion. Before Cell could kill Tien, Goku appeared using Instant Transmission and took the unconscious Tien and Piccolo back to Kami's Lookout to recover.
Appearances in Video GamesEdit
Neo Tri-Beam was named in the Budokai Tenkaichi series, where it appears is Tien's Ultimate Blast; in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi, it appears as a larger version of the Tri-Beam in energy wave form, but this was later fixed in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2, 3, and Tenkaichi Tag Team.
The Neo Tri-Beam also appears in Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Battle 22 (named Converging Beam), the Budokai series (named Neo Ki Blast Cannon), Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans, the Raging Blast series, Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi, Dragon Ball: Zenkai Battle Royale, and Dragon Ball Z For Kinect.
It is a support attack in Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors 2; Tien appears above the battlefield and repeatedly strikes downwards, which can easily turn the battle in the user's favor if the technique hits.
