"A large Ki Blast that is followed up with a volley of smaller Ki Blasts if it hits."
He charges up a blast in a fashion similar to a Finish Buster, and fires it at the opponent to inflict a large amount of damage.
Usage and Power
Vegeta uses a yellow attack similar to this technique against Final Form Frieza during their battle on Namek, but the tyrant simply jumps away from the blast. Later, Vegeta attacks Semi-Perfect Cell with the attack, causing an enormous explosion in the Tropical Islands.
Super Saiyan 2 Vegeta also uses a similar attack during his fight with Kid Buu, where it has the yellow coloration but starts off with him throwing an energy sphere before unleashing an energy barrage though he simply holds both hands out stretched when firing the energy barrage.
Video Game Appearances
Saiyan Energy Attack was named in the Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game, where it is depicted as the version used against Semi-Perfect Cell.
Vegeta uses the final part of the in Dragon Ball Z: W Bakuretsu Impact. Super Saiyan 2 Vegeta uses it as his charged Ki Blast in Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2, and as his Blast Spark in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z.
Super Saiyan 2 Vegeta is shown charging up the energy sphere portion of Focus Flash while fighting Dark Kid Buu during the animated opening of Dragon Ball Xenoverse. In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 as part of the 1.05.00 Update, it appears under the name Focus Flash as a Super Skill which can be obtained by the Future Warrior as a reward in New Expert Mission 18: "The Ultimate Evil: Broly!". In Xenoverse 2, the user fires an Energy Sphere which the user follows up with an rapid fire energy barrage if the Energy Sphere hits. As a result, it functions like the version used by Vegeta against Frieza and Kid Buu (Energy Sphere followed by an Energy Barrage), though has the coloration of the version Vegeta used against Semi-Perfect Cell. When performing the technique Vegeta says "I'll grind you into powder!" as he throws the Energy Sphere.
Both Focus Flash and Wild Hunt appear as part of SSGSS Vegeta's Battle Suit skillset in Xenoverse 2 after the 1.07.00 Update, as they were not part of any of his skillsets previously. After the 1.09.00 Update, it can be added to Vegeta's custom skillset after purchasing it for 5 TP Medals in Partner Customization.
- Vegeta's use of the technique against Frieza and Semi-Perfect Cell does not occur in the manga, though interestingly his use of the technique against Kid Buu occurs in both the manga and anime. Additionally in the anime, Vegeta uses this technique on the Dragon Ball Z series three major villains, Final Form Frieza, Semi-Perfect Cell, and Pure Majin Kid Buu.
