Nova Chariot is an energy shield technique used by Cooler in his Final Form.


Cooler surrounds himself with a purple barrier and flies at the enemy, ramming them and inflicting a great deal of damage.

Cooler uses this move to fly through Goku's Kaio-ken Kamehameha unfazed in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge (much to Goku's shock), and then punches him in the face.

Video games appearance

Nova Chariot was named in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z, where it is one of Cooler's attacks. This attack also appears as one of Final Form Cooler's Super Attacks in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 under the name Shadow Crusher (シャドウクラッシャー) as one of Cooler's Super Skills in his Final Form. In Xenoverse 2, this attack works as a counter-attack to Ki Blast moves, in which the user can fly through them and attack the opponent. In Xenoverse 2, Cooler performs the Frieza Stance pose and if hit by a Ki Blast skill the counter-attack portion of this technique is triggered.[1]

"Enters a stance with arms spread. Stopping a Ki Blast while in this stance will cause you to charge and perform a melee attack on the opponent."
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Tutorial description

As part of the Masters Pack DLC, the Future Warrior (Xenoverse 2) can learn this Super Skill by completing School Quest: "Lesson 1" of Cooler's Training. Interestingly, it is referred to as God Bar Attack in the plot description of "Lesson 1", despite the skill itself being listed under the name Shadow Crusher in the Lesson's Basic Reward section.[2]
