"Every force you create has an echo. Your own bad energy will be your undoing."
— Super Gogeta to Janemba before his attack.

Stardust Breaker (スターダストブレイカー Sutādasuto Bureikā), also called Soul Punisher (ソウルパニッシャー Soru Panisshā), is an Energy Sphere used by Gogeta.


First, Gogeta performs the Punisher Drive rush attack, by giving the opponent speedy rainbowish barrages of blows. Then, he flies past the stunned opponent and turns around to knee them twice in the back of their head/neck before performing a backflip, kicking them away, finishing the rush. Next, he lands on the ground and raises his left hand to charge a rainbow energy sphere. Finally, Gogeta turns around, crushes the sphere in the palm of his hands, throws the scattered energy blast, and disintegrates the opponent and their souls from the inside, if the target is neutral/innocent and is consumed by evil, this attack erases all traces of evil within the victim, purifying them (as in Saike Demon/Janemba's case). He can also do this even without the Punisher Drive (in video games).

Gogeta uses this attack to defeat Janemba in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn. While Pikkon is fighting Janemba, only to be defeated by the monster, Goku and Vegeta successfully perform the Fusion Dance to fuse into Gogeta. As Janemba powers up and prepares to fight, Gogeta attacks and destroys Janemba with the Stardust Breaker rush, removing all of Janemba's evil energy and restoring the young ogre, Saike Demon, back to his former self.

Video Game Appearances

Under the name Soul Punisher, the technique appears in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3, Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai - Another Road, and Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World. In Infinite World, the kicks are called Soul Strike. Golden Great Ape Gogeta can also use a more powerful version of the attack named Ultra Soul Punisher (超ソウルパニッシャー) in Dragon Ball Heroes.

The attack was named Stardust Breaker in the Budokai Tenkaichi video game series, where it is Super Gogeta's Ultimate Blast. In Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi, Budokai Tenkaichi 2, and Dragon Ball Kai: Ultimate Butōden, only the energy sphere at the end of the rush is used. In Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3, Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team, Raging Blast series, and Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi, the rush attack is also used.

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta uses the last three melee hits as part of his standard combo.

Soul Punisher appears as one of Gogeta's Super Attacks in Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle.

"Slide around multiple times! If you slide forward and get close to an enemy, you'll launch into a lightning-fast combo!"
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Super Skill description

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, the invisible attack portion appears as one of Gogeta's Super Skills under the name Punisher Drive.

"Release a tiny, sparkling Ki Blast that possesses immense power! Even if it misses its mark, it will still explode and deal damage! Use Control Stick to fire it backwards!"
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Ultimate Skill description

The energy sphere portion of the technique once again appears under the name Soul Punisher and is one of Super Saiyan Gogeta's Ultimate Skills. It can also be obtained by the Future Warrior by purchasing it from the Skill Shop for 150,000 Zeni after completing the Battle of Gods section of the main story. Even if it fails to hit the target it will explode dealing damage and can also be fired backwards. The move is very useful in Expert Missions, as it will instantly repel a Gigantic Ki Blast in one attack (assuming the game is not bugged).

  • Based on Gogeta's dialogue prior to his attack on Janemba, as well as its alternate name, Soul Punisher, the Stardust Breaker may do its damage by reacting with the target's soul.
