"Creates a cyclone-shaped Ki Blast that sweeps in front of the character, hitting multiple times."
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Tutorial description

Symphonic Destruction (破壊の交響曲 Hakai no Kōkyōkyoku, lit. "Symphony of Destruction") is a finger Energy wave used by Whis in the Dragon Ball Xenoverse series.

Overview

The user holds out the index finger of his right hand firing a vortex of energy (similar to Majin Buu's Flame Shower Breath) as they wave their hand from left to right around them as if they were conducting an orchestra. Upon finishing the technique the user will bow as a music conductor would to a performance.

Variations

  • DUAL Symphonic Destruction - A two person team attack version which appears as Whis' Dual Ultimate Attack skill in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 after the 1.09.00 Update.[3]

"Sweep the field in front of you with countless ultra-powerful Ki Waves!"
Dragon Ball Xenoverse Skill description

Symphonic Destruction was named in Dragon Ball Xenoverse and is Whis' Ultimate Skill. This skill can also be obtained by the Future Warrior as a reward in Parallel Quest 40: "Stop Beerus' Destruction".[1]

"Symphonic Destruction is a ferocious attack. You should only use it if you've made absolutely sure that none of your allies are in range."
Whis in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Symphonic Destruction returns as Whis' Ultimate Skill.[4] As part of the Masters Pack DLC, the Future Warrior can learn this skill by completing School Quest: "Lesson 3" of Whis' Training.[2]

Interestingly, Whis tells the Warrior they should only use it if none of their allies are in range, despite the fact that it cannot damage or harm the Warrior's allies in any way even if they are in range of the attack.

"An Ultimate Attack requires the ultimate partner! Attack as a pair with Symphonic Destruction!"
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Dual Ultimate Skill description

After the 1.09.00 Update, Whis gains a two person team attack variation called DUAL Symphonic Destruction which appears as his Dual Ultimate Attack skill which can be added to his custom skillset.

"Are you familiar with the concept of being a big fish in a small pond? If your entire life is confined to one small area, it's difficult to gain an objective sense of your own strength. The solution for this, however, is quite simple. Just focus your attention on those who are stronger than you. I know... Sometime soon, why don't the two of us try performing the same attack simultaneously? I think you might learn a lot from the experience. Oh ho ho..."
— Whis before teaching his Dual Ultimate in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

The Future Warrior can learn his Dual Ultimate Attack skill after reaching Partner Level (maximum friendship) with Whis as an Instructor. Whis will ask if they heard of the concept of a big fish in a small pond and explain that it is hard to be objective about one's own strength confined to one small area, though states the solution is simple as one must simply focus on those stronger than them. He suggests they try attacking together simultaneously believing they could learn a lot from the experience before teaching them DUAL Symphonic Destruction which allows them to initiate the attack while teamed up with Whis or Time Patroller NPCs. DUAL Symphonic Destruction's power increases as Whis' partner gauge fills up.

Trivia

  • This technique has strong a music conductor theme to it both in its name as Symphonic comes from Symphony and in how it is performed, like a music conductor conducting an orchestra.
    • Vados has a similarly named Ultimate Skill called Requiem of Destruction in Xenoverse 2. Requiem is a type of musical composition written for a Requiem Mass.
    • This fits with the musical conductor theme of Whis' and his sister Vados' techniques in Xenoverse and Xenoverse 2.
  • Symphonic Destruction is one of the few techniques that cannot be transferred over from Xenoverse to Xenoverse 2. If a custom character upload from Xenoverse possesses this move in their skill set, the player will receive TP Medals and Zeni in Xenoverse 2.
