In his Super Saiyan form, Goku begins to gather energy for a Spirit Bomb but cannot fully control it. He absorbs the massive amount of energy into his body, which covers him from head to toe in a blue aura with sparks surrounding him, and then proceeds to throw a punch that takes the form of a giant golden dragon which devours his opponent and inflicts a massive amount of damage.
The Super Dragon Fist's fist usage originally appeared in the climax of the movie Dragon Ball Z: Super Android 13! where Goku uses a weaker version named Final Strike in the Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game.
- Final Strike - A weaker variant used by Goku against Super Android 13. It is the energy of the Spirit Bomb used in a normal punch instead of a Dragon Fist.
Appearances in games
Super Dragon Fist is the name of Goku's desperation attack in Dragon Ball Z: Hyper Dimension (though it is also known as Meteor Smash in some scripts of the game). Goku, as a Super Saiyan, uses Instant Transmission to get close enough and attack the opponent with punches and kicks. Then, he transforms into a Super Saiyan 3 and uses the Dragon Fist. Finally, he charges and uses the Super Spirit Bomb.
This enhanced version of the Dragon Fist also appears in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 and Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World. In Infinite World, if the defending opponent's gauge is higher than the attacker's while GT Kid Goku's Super Dragon Fist is executed, the opponent will dodge the attack and no damage will be done.
Also in Budokai 3, Super Dragon Fist is the name of Kid Goku's Penetrate! technique. The Dragon Fist used on Super 17 is called "Super Dragon Fist" in the Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game.
"A long-range Strike skill! After you've leapt in, unleash a barrage of 3 hits max!"
— Dragon Ball: Xenoverse in-game description
In Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, it is a Super Skill used by Goku and Vegito. It can also be obtained by the Future Warrior in Parallel Quest 42: "Power of a Super Saiyan God". Unlike past depictions, the technique acts as a long range rush strike that launches a three hit barrage. This version returns in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 as a Super Skill used by Goku which can be obtained by the Future Warrior (Xenoverse 2).
