Spirit Shot (双龍弾 Sōryūdan, lit. Twin Dragon Bullet) is a two-handed energy technique in which the user stretches their arms out and blows the opponent(s) away with dual Kiai blasts. It is a version of the Kiai technique used by Goku.
Goku crosses his forearms out in front of him, then throws his arms out creating an enormous force that blows his opponents away.
Usage and Power
Goku initially uses it in his battle against Jeice and Burter on Namek. After the Purple Comet Hurricane fails, Goku lands a hard blow in Jeice's face. When Jeice and Burter begin to retaliate, Goku blasts them both away with Spirit Shot before they can ready their attack. The attack does not cause them any damage but thoroughly humiliates the pair and prevents them from attacking Goku.
Video Game Appearances
The technique is used in the Budokai series: it is named Ki Blast Cannon in Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World and Battle of Z, Spirit Shot in Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai, as well as Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit and Dragonball Evolution, and Kiai-hō (気合砲) in Dragon Ball Heroes and Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle.
In Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai - Another Road, both Gohan and Future Gohan use a one-handed version of the technique. While Future Gohan's technique is named the Spirit Shot, Present Gohan's technique is simply named the Kamehameha.
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, it appears under the name Spirit Explosion and is a common Evasive Skill used by several fighters including Goku.
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Spirit Explosion returns as a common Evasive Skill used by several fighters including Goku. Mr. Satan can also use it when fought in Parallel Quest 56: "Hercule Is Number One" while under the effects of Villainous Mode. It is the the pre-assigned Evasive Skill for the Future Warrior in Challenge Quest Tutorial 01: "The Art of Battle" though it must be obtained as a random reward in Parallel Quest 25: "The Emperor's Brother" to utilize it outside the Challenge Quest.
After the 1.09.00 Update, it can be added to the custom skillsets of several characters such as Bardock, Gohan (Future), Gohan (Adult), Gotenks, and Cell (Perfect) for 5 TP Medals (per character) in Partner Customization.
