Scatter Finger Beam (連続気功波) is an barrage of five simultaneously unleashed beams fired from a single hand.
The user leans forward and points all five fingers of his right hand at the opponent. Then, he charges up five small golden-yellow energy spheres each on the tip of each finger and finally fires the energy spheres at the opponent, inflicting a great deal of damage.
King Piccolo first uses this attack against Goku, who blocks it with an Energy Shield. Salza uses the Scatter Finger Beam against Krillin in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge. In the episode "Ghosts from Tomorrow", Future Android 17 uses the attack to kill attacking humans. Super Vegito uses the Banshee Blast during his battle against Super Buu with Gohan absorbed; when Super Buu sends a wave of Super Ghost Kamikaze Attacks, Super Vegito fires the Banshee Blast to destroy the ghosts before they can reach him.
Appearances in games
The technique appears in Dragon Ball Z: Hyper Dimension under the name Scatter Energy Bullets (拡散エネルギー弾) and in Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury under the name Banshee Blast. It was named Scatter Finger Beam in the Budokai Tenkaichi series, where it is a Blast 2 used by both Salza and Vegito. Also, Super Vegito has it as a full-powered Ki Blast.
In Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z, it appears under the name Spread Finger Beam and is one of Super Vegito's Super attacks. However it is performed a bit differently, instead of five finger beams it is more like five ki blasts fired from each finger, and has the ability to lock-on to a single enemy to multiple enemies.
"Fire Ki Blasts from each of your fingers! The Ki Blasts will fly towards the opponent as if to prevent them from escape."
— Dragon Ball Xenoverse Skill description
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, it appears under the name Split Finger Shot and is one of Vegito's Super Skills. The attack is performed in almost the same way it was in Battle of Z, five ki blasts fired from each finger though it cannot lock-on to multiple enemies and the energy is a whitish-blue color. It can also be obtained by the Future Warrior as a reward in Parallel Quest 37: "Potara Warrior".
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Split Finger Shot returns as one of Vegito's Super Skills which can be obtained by the Future Warrior (Xenoverse 2) by purchasing it from the Skill Shop in Conton City for 35,000 Zeni after completing the Resurrection ‘F’ portion of the main story.
