Punishing Counter (バニシングカウンター) is an counter rush attack used by Frieza in his third form.


When the opponent attempts to attack, Frieza turns around and back kicks them in the face. He then moves behind the opponent and blasts them away with a Death Cannon, inflicting a high amount of damage.

Frieza uses part of this attack during his battle with Piccolo on Namek. Thanks to his third transformed state, Frieza is able to easily overcome Piccolo and dodge the Namekian's assault. As Piccolo attempts to attack again, Frieza counters with the Punishing Counter rush's energy wave, temporarily blasting him away.
