Technique List

12 Eyes (Aka Shishin no Ken): This technique was used by Tenshinhan to split himself into four different parts. Each Tenshinhan created was not just an image like that created with the Zanzoken but can fight and be attacked. The only problem with the this move is that each counterpart only had a quarter of the power and speed than if there was only one.
Who can use: Tenshinhan, Cell (anime only).
Bakuhatsuha: By raising two fingers, the user of this attack can create a large explosion that will totally decimate the surrounding area or the ground under an opponent.
Who can use: Nappa, Vegeta.
Bakurikimaha: Piccolo Daimao's ultimate Ki attack. This is is an extremely powerful Ki blast shot from one hand, while the other is gripping the shooting hand's wrist for support. The time Piccolo shot this one might possibly be the biggest Ki blast fired in the first series.
Who can use: Piccolo Daimao.
Barrier: This purely defensive technique forms a Ki-shield around the body that protects the user from Ki or similar attacks. There are two forms of this maneuver. One is a spherical shield that surrounds the body, the other is more of a coating of the body.
Who can use: Frieza, Android #17, Cell, Vegetto.
Big Bang Attack: One of the first techniques Vegeta developed as a Super Saiyan. The Big Bang attack is a huge Ki bolt of incredible destructive power. Vegeta holds one flat palm forward towards his enemy and launches the bolt.
Who can use: Vegeta.
Body Change: This technique is used by the leader of Ginyu Force, Ginyu. Ginyu spreads his limbs out, shouts "Change!" and shoots out a bolt of energy and if it hits its target Ginyu changes bodies with that person. Ginyu then gains the strength and speed of his target but not his special techniques or Ki. After changing bodies Ginyu can still do a Body Change. Ginyu will change bodies with the first person to hit the beam and thus if someone gets in the way of his intended target, Ginyu will change bodies with that person instead.
Who can use: Ginyu.
Bukujutsu: Not exactly a fighting technique. This is the ability to fly with one's Ki. Since almost all of the fights in the second series occurred at least partially in the air, this technique is used all the time during fights, as well as being used to go from place to place. The only characters in the first series that could use it since their first appearances were Piccolo, Tenshinhan, Chiaotzu and Puar. Almost every one of the other characters learnt to fly eventually and by the time DBZ comes around every major character could fly.
Who can use: Anyone who fights in DBZ except Yajirobe and Mr. Satan.
Burning Attack: Future Trunks' trademark Ki attack. This is a powerful energy blast shot from both hands. Trunks holds both hands forward, does some strange arm movements and then puts both hands forward again, releasing the blast.
Who can use: Future Trunks.
Chiaotzu's Chonoryoku: A very unique technique. Chiaotzu puts both hands, or a single hand forward and can manipulate the bodily movements of his opponent to an extent, providing his opponent is not too powerful. He can stop someone's movements or cause internal pain with this technique.
Who can use: Chiaotzu.
Chobakuretsumaha: This is Piccolo's ultimate Ki blast. He powers up the blast between the palms of his hands in front of his chest then releases the blast. Very very powerful. This blast is known as Gekiretsukodan in the DBZ video games.
Who can use: Piccolo.
Crasher Ball: A lot like the Genki Dama that Goku gave to Krillin, the Crasher Ball is a Ki-ball that is produced from the palm of the hand. I don't think one ever actually connected during the series though. It was just used as a diversion.
Who can use: Jeice.
Daichiretsuzan: This is a very powerful attack that Frieza uses. With a swipe of his hand with two fingers extended, he creates an invisible cutting beam that goes a long way. Its name comes from the fact that it slices a huge cut in the earth when he used it.
Who can use: Frieza
Death Ball: This is a small ball of energy which Frieza can create from either the tip of his finger or with both hands. While small, it is very powerful, and can even destroy planets.
Who can use: Frieza
Dodonpa: One of the major techniques of the Tsurusen-ryu. This is a blast shot from one finger which explodes upon impact. The most basic Dodonpa is more powerful than the most basic Kamehameha, but the Kamehameha can become more powerful. After being defeated by Goku, Tao Pai Pai developed this technique into the Super Dodonpa.
Who can use: Tao Pai Pai, Tsurusennin, Chiaotzu, Tenshinhan.
Double Tsuihikidan: This is a move that Krillin developed for use during the 23rd Tenkaichi Budoukai. He shoots a Kamehameha-like blast from each hand and then he can guide the blasts towards his enemy.
Who can use: Krillin
Dynamite Kick: Mr. Satan's trademark attack. A charging kick. Being one of Mr. Satan's attack, this one is pretty much useless. Gotenks used it once too, (whether or not he was copying Satan is debatable) and it was likewise useless.
Who can use: Mr. Satan, Gotenks.
Enemy transformation: By shooting an energy field from his head-appendage, Majin Buu can change the form of his enemy into something else (normally candy or some other form of food). This is without a doubt Buu's most common attack.
Who can use: Majin Buu
Energy Kyushu: The trademark technique of Androids #19 and #20. The androids can absorb energy, either from people's bodies or their Ki blasts, through the holes in the palms of their hands. However, without their hands, they cannot perform this technique.
Who can use: Android#19, Android #20.
Eraser Cannon: This is one of the most powerful techniques of Recoome, one of the members of the Ginyu Force. It is a large, powerful Ki blast shot from the mouth and can destroy things in a very large radius from the blast hits.
Who can use: Recoome
Eye Beam: Not a particularly interesting technique but was used enough during the DB/DBZ series that it deserves to be put here. It is basically a double Ki blast shot from the eyes. While the blast itself is small, it causes a huge explosion on impact to do a fair amount of damage and can also be used to stop other Ki blasts.
Who can use: Piccolo, Frieza, Android #20.
Frieza Beam: This is Frieza's trademark technique. It is a lot like the Dodonpa, being a beam of energy shot from one finger, but differs in that it does not explode on impact. Instead it is a piercing attack which slices and continues through its target.
Who can use: Frieza, Cell.
Fusion: This technique is used to fuse two people into a single person and give the fused person a huge power boost. Anyone can do Fusion but you have to have a similar power level as whoever you fuse with and you must learn the correct pose and form. It's easy to make a mistake and fuse into something far weaker though. The Fusion lasts for 30 minutes before the fused person becomes two again. The Kaioshins have a special set of Potara Rings which allow people to fuse without the pose and also lasts forever. Goku and Piccolo know how to do it without the Potara Rings but never actually did the move.
Who can use: Goku, Piccolo, Goten, Trunks
Fusenko: This is a move used by Krillin during the 22nd Tenkaichi Budoukai. Krillin draws in his breath while falling down then puffs himself up, slowing his fall. Can be used to gain a good defensive advantage.
Who can use: Krillin
Galactica Donut: This is a Ki attack used by Gotenks to trap his enemies. It is a ring of Ki energy that Gotenks can control to change the size of the its diameter. The Donut can be used to surround the enemy and trap him by holding his limbs within the donut. Super Saiyan 3 Gotenks can use an adaptation of this attack, the Renzoku Super Donuts.
Who can use: Gotenks.
Galick Ho: The Galick Ho is Vegeta's answer to the Kamehameha. He powers up the blast like the Kamehameha, but when he releases the blast, his palms are both up.
Who can use: Vegeta.
Gekitotsu Buu Buu Volleyball: A unique attack used once by Gotenks and Piccolo. After trapping Buu in a ball with the Renzoku Super Donuts, Gotenks and Piccolo beat the ball around a bit before spiking it really hard onto the earth.
Who can use: Gotenks, Piccolo.
Genki Dama: One of Goku's most powerful techniques. The Genki Dama is a large ball of energy gathered from nature, humans, etc., which lend him their energy. However, it takes time to gather a Genki Dama and the user has to stick his arms up in the air during which time he will become open to attack.
Who can use: Goku
Hankokubikkurisho: This is a fairly strong Ki attack used by Jackie Chun (Kamesenin/Master Roshi). He shoots the blast forward using both hands and traps his victim in a shocking field of energy from which his opponent cannot escape (normally.) This technique was only used in the 21st Tenkaichi Budoukai (Dragon Ball Series).
Who can use: Jackie Chun (Kamesenin/Master Roshi).
Haretsu no Maho: This is the magic spell used by Babidi to make people explode. It only works on weak people though; on tougher fighters like the Z fighters it is ineffective.
Who can use: Babidi.
Hell's Flash: In order to fire a blast with the most power, Android #16 takes off his hands, tucks them under his arms and fires a blast from the cannons under his wrists.
Who can use: Android #16.
Honoo: Not a particularly important technique but this is one of Darbura's more powerful blasts. It's just what it says, a powerful breath of fire.
Who can use: Darbura
Jinruizetsumetsukogeki: Literally 'Genocide Attack'. This is not an attack that can be used in the heat of battle but is probably one of the single most devastating attacks ever used in the series. It is a series of Ki blasts shot into the air which seek their targets upon being fired. After looking down on the Earth from Kami Sama's Palace, Majin Buu used this technique to kill every human on Earth.
Who can use: Majin Buu.

Kaioken: Taught to Goku by North Kaio Sama (King Kai), this is primarily a power-up move. When Goku uses this technique he flares up and gains a large boost to his speed and power. Goku can also use multiplied power to his Kaioken. At first, he shouldn't have been able to go past 2 x Kaioken without seriously endangering himself but eventually he can increase the power of the Kaioken to around a 20 x Kaioken. Note that except in the TV series, Goku doesn't use his Kaioken as a Super Saiyan.
Who can use: Goku
Kakusandan: This technique was used by Krillin during the fight against Nappa and Vegeta and is actually somewhat of an adaptation of an attack he used against Piccolo in the Tenkaichi Budoukai. What he does is he shoots a blast from each hand. Then he controls the blasts so that they merge and then he directs it above the heads of his enemies. There upon he splits the blast again into many smaller Ki bolts which rain down upon his enemies. A very effective technique which wiped out virtually all of the Saibaimen.
Who can use: Krillin
Kakusanyudokodan: A potentially devastating maneuver. The user of this attack fires many Ki bolts (like the Renzoku Energy Dan) around his opponent, surrounding them, then controls the bolts so they all shoot toward their target.
Who can use: Piccolo.
Kamehameha: Quite possibly the most commonly used special technique in all of the series., The Kamehameha is a technique created by Kamesenin (Mater Roshi). It is a Ki blast, which to start off is charged up behind the user in cupped hands then brought forward to release a large blast of energy. Goku later develops the ability to control the direction of the blast, shoot one from his feet, or with a single hand. Also Goku later develops a Cho Kamehameha with even more power than the standard fare. Goten can use it as well, but mispronounces it as Kamekameha when he uses it. Look below, most people can use it.
Who can use: Kamesenin, Goku, Old Son Gohan, Yamcha, Krillin, Tenshinhan,  Gohan, Cell, Cell Junior, Goten and Majin Buu.
The Generic Ki Blast: This technique is not particularly special but is used so much in the series that it at least needs to be mentioned. The Generic Ki Blast is shot from the hand, and explodes on impact for a lot of damage. This is by far the most used technique in the series next to standard punches and kicks. It is obviously an easy technique to perform.
Who can use: All except Yajirobe and Mr. Satan
Kiai: This technique is used simply by yelling really loud; it disperses weaker Ki attacks.
Who can use: Tenshinhan, Dai Kaioshin.
Kiaiho: An invisible force attack that knocks one's opponent back. It can be shot either from an open palm or from the eyes.
Who can use: Goku, Frieza.
Kienzan: This is another attack that is used quite frequently during the second series. It is a flat, disc-shaped Ki blast which can be used to slice through its target with deadly accuracy. The Kienzan can also be controlled by the user.
Who can use: Krillin, Vegeta, Frieza, Cell, Android #18.
Kikoho: This is Tenshinhan's strongest Ki blast. Tenshinhan puts the tips of his fingers together forming kind of an "O" between his fingers and his thumbs. Then he shoots a very powerful Ki blast through the "O" at his opponent. While this attack is very powerful it is also extremely damaging to Tenshinhan and can kill him if he uses it too much. Later on Tenshinhan develops this technique to become the Shinkikoho, which is even stronger.
Who can use: Tenshinhan, Cell (anime only), Cell Junior (anime only).
Ki no Tsurugi: Literally "Sword of Ki". This is a Ki beam that shoots out somewhat as an extension of the hand and can be swung and stabbed to cut or pierce enemies. The length of the beam can be controlled by the user.
Who can use: Vegetto
Koshoku: Coming from the planet of darkness Yakon can eat light using this technique. In fact he cause Goku to go from Super Saiyan to normal by eating his light.
Who can use: Yakon
Kyodaika: This is a technique used by Piccolo during the 23rd Tenkaichi Budoukai. With this technique Piccolo can grow his body to a huge size making the range and strength of his blows much more effective. This makes him a larger target as well.
Who can use: Piccolo.
Makankosappo: One of Piccolo's most powerful techniques. This is a penetrating blast shot from two fingers. It is actually two blasts, one going straight ahead and the other coiling around the first for drilling power. This attack drills through everything it hits and eventually blows up when it hits something big enough, such as a mountain.
Who can use: Piccolo, Cell, Cell Junior, Majin Buu.
Makosen: This is a Ki blast that is used by Piccolo Daimao. He gathers Ki into both his arms then fires a blast from each, one after the other. Not a particularly powerful attack when compared to some of the later moves but it almost killed Goku once.
Who can use: Piccolo Daimao
Masenko: This is Gohan's trademark energy blast and is fairly powerful. Gohan powers up a blast over his head with both his hands, one palm behind the other, then brings his hands down in front of him to fire the blast. Gohan used this blast fairly often during the second series especially during the Frieza saga.
Who can use: Gohan
Mystic Attack: This is an attack first used by Piccolo during the Tenkaichi Budoukai. Using the Namek ability to extend their arms, he extended his arm at his enemy from a distance thus surprising them. Once Piccolo grabs his opponent he draws them back for
an attack like a punch, kick, Ki blast or anything else he wants to do.
Who can use: Piccolo, Nail, Majin Buu.
Papparapar: This is a magic spell that Babidi can use to teleport people in his spaceship. Actually he teleports the entire room with the people in it to another place.
Who can use: Babidi.
Rogafufuken: This attack is Yamcha's trademark technique. After preparing himself in a special stance he attacks with many claw-like punches and kicks then finally finishing off with a double-fisted claw-punch. After training with Kamesenin, Yamcha improved on this technique to become the Shin Rogafufuken.
Who can use: Yamcha
Rolling Satan Punch: Satan curls up into a ball, rolls along the ground, then punches his opponent. Being one of Satan's attack, this one is pretty much useless in a real fight.
Who can use: Mr. Satan
Renzoku Energy Dan: While many characters can use this technique the undisputed master of this technique is Vegeta. The user of this technique can shoot Ki bolts continuously from his hands resulting in somewhat of a machine-gun Ki blast effect. While the individual blasts are not particularly powerful, the effect of many can be devastating.
Who can use: Vegeta, Goku, Gohan, Piccolo.
Renzoku Shine, Shine Missile: This is Gotenks' adaptation of the Renzoku Energy Dan technique. Basically the same but a whole lot more powerful.
Who can use: Gotenks.
Recoome Kick: A charging knee blow used by Recoome of the Ginyu Force.
Who can use: Recoome
Recoome Mahha Attack: This punch is the equivalent of his Kick. The Recoome Mahha Attack is basically a charging punch.
Who can use: Recoome
Saiko no Kogeki: Literally "Ultimate Attack". This is the Ki blast that Nappa shoots out of his mouth. It is very powerful.
Who can use: Nappa.
Satan Special Ultra Super Megaton Punch: Mr. Satan's "Ultimate" attack. Really just a normal punch. Mr. Satan forgot the name of this attack almost as soon as he had made it. Used against Android #18 in the 25th Tenkaichi Budoukai.
Who can use: Mr. Satan
Sekikatsuba: This is one of Darbura's useful attacks. His saliva will turn whatever it hits into stone, be it alive or not. The only way to reverse the petrified state is to kill Darbura.
Who can use: Darbura.
Shogekiha: This is almost exactly like the Kiaiho. It is an invisible blast shot from the eyes but is a little more versatile and can be shot from any part of the body. Piccolo can adapt this attack to radiate from the whole of his entire body.
Who can use: Piccolo, Kaioshin, Majin Buu.
Shunkanido: Not a fighting technique but often used to gain a tactical advantage in a fight. The Shunkanido is a teleport. The user places two fingers on his forehead, searches for a place he wants to go to then when he finds it he can teleport there. It is not a technique that one can teleport to wherever he pleases. People assume that is the case. Concentrate!
Who can use: Goku, Cell, Kibito, Kaioshin (after merging with Kibito), Majin Buu.
Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack: One of Gotenks' strongest techniques. He spits out a ghost-like form closely resembling himself. The ghostlike form has a mind of its own and when it hits anything it explodes, severely damaging whatever is caught in the blast.
Who can use: Gotenks, Majin Buu.
Taiyoken: This technique was originally Tenshinhan's. The user puts his hands in front of his face and lights up very bright so much that he blinds his opponent for awhile. This technique was used a lot throughout Dragon Ball Z (especially to escape).
Who can use: Tenshinhan, Goku, Krillin, Cell.
Time stop: This is an attack used by Guldo, the smallest member of the Ginyu Force. He uses it to freeze time for his opponents so that they are frozen in whatever position they were in. However he needs to keep his attention on his victims in order to keep them frozen. Guldo also has the power to stop time completely, but for only a moment, and he can't do it for too many times without tiring himself out.
Who can use: Guldo
Udebunrikogeki: The user of this technique pulls a piece of flesh off his body and controls it to attack his opponent in some way. Naturally, only Majin Buu can use this technique.
Who can use: Majin Buu
Yokaieki: This is a technique used by the Saibaimen. They split their heads into two and shoot a stream of acid from it, which can be very damaging if it hits its target.
Who can use: Saibaimen
Zanzoken: Another technique created by Kamesenin. With this technique, the user can move so fast that he leaves an after-image while attacking from another standpoint. Goku can also leave multiple images. This technique was later learnt by everyone who can manipulate Ki. Kamesenin also created a way to leave several images at once.
Who can use: All the Z warriors except for Yajirobe, Mr. Satan and Videl.
