Techniques
Assimiliation
First Used By: Buu 
Color: N/A 
Type: Merging The act of absorbing another's body in order to use its strength and energy. Creatures that assimilate take the characteristics of their victim, and any of their abilities. Power increases exponentially rather than additively. For instance, when Cell absorbs #17, it's more like Cell x #17 rather than Cell + #17 (Not exactly, but you get the point). The downside is that weaknesses are also carried over to the host. Most of the time, the process is reversible. 

Big Bang Attack
First Used By: Vegeta 
Color: Blue-white 
Type: Beam used by putting one's hand to a 90 degree angle of the wrist, the Big Bang is a slow moving, highly destructive attack. It can cause major damage and does not take very long to charge. 

Burning Attack
First Used By: Trunks 
Color: Yellow 
Type: Projectile Even though the move is very flashy, it's relatively weak. The Burning Attack is primarily used as a distraction (say from...Trunks' sword). It's slow, weak, and easy to see. Perfect for shifting attention from a real threat. 

Blurring
First Used By: Kami 
Color: N/A 
Type: Maneuvering Dematerializing and quickly moving to another spot close by. Leaves a silhouette of the person for a short period of time in their original location, causing the "blur" effect. Most major characters in the series have this ability.

Death Ball
First Used By: Frieza 
Color: Orange 
Type: Projectile A staple of Frieza, he uses this attack repeatedly. It's a spectacular attack, growing from a singular point into a ball the size of a small moon. Unfortunately, it also moves with the speed of a small moon. It easily has enough energy to obliterate a planet. 

Destructo Disk

First Used By: Krillin 
Color: Blue (Krillin), Purple (Frieza) 
Type: Projectile A flat, circular plane of energy, a Destructo disc can cut through almost any surface. It has this ability because, like a knife, its edge is very thin. Although the person using this technique generally has more success when they have a higher power level, it also allows weak adversaries to take out strong ones in a single blow. Frieza's Destructo discs home in on their targets, while Krillin's can split into several smaller disks after being launched. 

Dodonpa
First Used By: ??? 
Color: Variable 
Type: Beam One of Tao Pie Pie's favorite moves, the Dodonpa is a narrow beam of energy with a very large head. It competes power-wise with the KameHame Ha. 

Eye Lazers
First Used By: Piccolo 
Color: Red (Piccolo), Purple (Frieza and Cooler) 
Type: Beam Very thin and concentrated, this technique is used to make a precise hit on a target and do major damage. It has a limited range, but moves very fast. 

Final Flash
First Used By: Vegeta 
Color: Yellow 
Type: Beam An ability unique to Vegeta, it is quite similar to the KameHameHa (although taking much longer to charge and causing more damage over a larger area). It is somewhat slow-moving, but one of the most powerful attacks in the series. 

Fly
First Used By: ??? 
Color: N/A 
Type: Maneuvering with the concentration of ki energy, it allows the Z warriors to defy gravity and soar through the heavens. Almost every major character has this talent. 

Fly
First Used By: Androids 
Color: N/A 
Type: Maneuvering the ability to fly around without the use of Ki. Only the androids can do this. 

Fusion
First Used By: Trunks and Goten 
Color: N/A 
Type: Other When two Saiyans find that they are overwhelmed by a greater power, they have little choice but to fuse into one. This is done by performing the fusion dance, which when done correctly, will create a being that is much more powerful than the two subjects. The dance is fairly simple: both subjects side-step towards each other with identical movements while saying the word "Fusion." When they get next to each other they tough index fingers. The fused Saiyan takes on the characteristics of both involved, but usually looks more like one than the other. 

Golden Oozaru
First Used By: Goku
Color: N/A
Type: Last transformation before SSJ4, the final stage of a Saiyan. Golden Oozaru has gold hair. 

Henka Beam
First Used By: Buu 
Color: Yellow 
Type: Beam When you just can't wait to get to the candy store. This is one of Buu's unique attacks that gives him a burst of power. Basically, he converts a target into some sort of food item (usually candy) and devours them, absorbing their energy. 

Instant transmission
First Used By: Goku
Color: N/A 
Type: Maneuvering The ability of a creature to move from one location to another without the passage of time. This particular technique requires a person to lock on to. Anyone touching the subject when they are phasing to a new location will be teleported as well. 

Kaio-ken
First Used By: Goku 
Color: Red 
Type: Power-up Devised by the King Kai (who cannot even perform it himself), the Kaio-ken is a powering technique that enables a person to move faster and hit harder. The technique must be used sparingly however, as the more it is used the more the body of caster becomes damaged.
