Tien Shinhan uses a part of this attack in Budokai Tenkaichi 3

The Volleyball Attack is popular in the Budokai video game series, where two fused characters have it in addition to Tien: Super Buu (with Tien and Yamcha absorbed), and Tiencha. This move also appears in Dragon Ball: Raging Blast as one of Tien's Super Attacks, where it is renamed Open Ball Fist. In Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi, the technique is once again called the Volleyball Attack and is one of Tien's Super Attacks. It can also be obtained (via Tien's training) as one of the Standard Hero's custom Super Attacks. In Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, in addition to being one of Tien's super skills, it is also a Super Skill of Piccolo which is likely a reference to his role in Charging Ultra Buu Buu Volleyball (another Volleyball themed technique) team attack with Gotenks. The Future Warrior can learn the technique as well.
