The Continuous Energy Bullet (連続 気功弾, Renzoku Kikōdan; Literally meaning "Continuous Spirit Work Bullet") is an energy wave attack used by many fighters.


The user fires energy waves at a very rapid rate, causing a lightning speed effect. It is effective for quick, widespread, and massive amounts of damage, but it is very draining on one's own ki level. If the user is powerful enough, however, they are able to avoid the draining effects of this combination technique.

Many fighters in Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball GT are able to perform this attack, but its most prominent user is Vegeta (in fact, during his fight with Majin Boo, Son Goku refers to it as Vegeta's technique).


The Continuous Energy Bullet is much more powerful than the average energy Ki Blast. Like other techniques, this attack can be increased further through transformations, concentration, and training. Its power, speed, force, color, and size depends on the user. This technique is usually used as a last resort or a desperation move (For example, when Vegeta started firing non stop blasts against Kid Boo) and typically motivated by frustration or rage. Great Apes and Golden Great Apes also had a Mouth Blast variation of this attack.

The various levels and variations are named Full Power Energy Blast Volley (used by GT Goku, Gohan, Son Goten, and Vegeta Baby), Full Power Energy Barrage Wave (used by Super Saiyan 2 Gohan, Kid Trunks, Cui, and Turles), and Super Energy Wave Volley (used by Goku, Vegeta, King Vegeta, and Majoob) in the Budokai Tenkaichi video game series, whereas it is called Full Power Consecutive Ki Blast in Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World and Energy Barrage in Dragon Ball Online.


  • Interesting enough, despite the technique debuting in Dragon Ball Z, the variation of the technique named the the Full Power Energy Blast Volley first appears in Dragon Ball when Piccolo uses it in his first fight against Son Goku.
