Shocking Ball (電撃ボール Dengeki Bōru) is an energy sphere attack used by Kid Buu. It is a smaller and significantly less powerful version of his Planet Burst.


Kid Buu charges a large pink energy sphere by raising his hand. As electricity begins to surround the sphere, Kid Buu throws the sphere at his opponent, causing an incredible amount of damage.

Kid Buu prepares this technique in Other World on Grand Kai's Planet, against Krillin, Yamcha, Pikkon, Olibu, and many Other World Tournament fighters observing the scene. However, Kid Buu notices the higher energy of Goku and Vegeta powering up as Super Saiyans on the Sacred World of the Kai, and instead chooses to fight them, using Kai Kai to teleport onto the planet.

He later uses the attack several times during the battle against Goku and Vegeta on the Sacred World of the Kais.

Video Game Appearances

Shocking Ball was named in the Raging Blast series, where it is one of Kid Buu's super attacks.

In Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, it appears under the name Vanishing Ball and is one of Kid Buu's Super Skills. In the game, it is treated as a weaker version of Planet Burst (which is known as Super Vanishing Ball in Xenoverse). It can also be obtained by the Future Warrior as a reward in Parallel Quest 38: "Blast the Super Spirit Bomb!".

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Vanishing Ball returns as a Super Skill used by Kid Buu and Supervillain Kid Buu. It can also be obtained by the Future Warrior as a reward in Parallel Quest 58: "Majin Banquet". It is also accessible to Majins in their Pure Majin form.
