First, Piccolo swings his arms apart and charges an energy sphere in each hand. Then, he yells "Scatter Shot!" as he fires multiple energy spheres against the opponent, inflicting a huge amount of damage.
Piccolo later uses the attack against Gohan during their training at Break Wasteland. He also uses it after fusing with Nail, during his battle against Frieza on Namek. After getting knocked into the ground by Frieza, Piccolo removes his weighted clothing and powers up to fight Frieza. Frieza is at first unimpressed, but is soon overpowered by Piccolo's strength and knocked deep into the ground. Piccolo then blasts Frieza with the Scatter Shot, creating a huge explosion. However, Frieza manages to survive the attack and continues the battle with Piccolo.
Piccolo uses it against Gohan in the Garlic Jr. Saga. He uses it again in the movie Dragon Ball Z: The World's Strongest; when Goku knocks down Dr. Wheelo with his Power Pole, Piccolo retaliates by blasting the evil robotic scientist with the Scatter Shot. However, Dr. Wheelo is undamaged by their team attack and headbutts Piccolo into the ceiling.
Appearances in games
Scatter Shot was named in Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku II. In the game, Piccolo fires three orange-yellow energy blasts that spread outward.
- Hellzone Grenade (Guided Scatter Shot) – A guided and more powerful version of the Scatter Shot. Piccolo first uses it in his battle with Android 17. Another variation of this is also used by Vegeta as he fights Super Buu, prior to his fusion with Goku. The attack is Piccolo's Ultimate Blast in the Budokai series.
