Later during Future Trunks Brief's flashback to his own future, Future Artificial Human No. 18 used this attack in her fight against Future Son Gohan and Future No. 18 actually hit Gohan with the attack. She used this technique to beat up Future Gohan and continued attacking with multiple punches, fired rapidly, after she used the Rapiddo Kikku.[1]

After transforming into a Super Saiyan 3, an angry Gotenks attacked Super Boo with multiple punches and kicks, all fired rapidly, including the Rapiddo Kikku, which he used in a combination with his physical moves and what seemed to be a double kick version of the attack. Despite the many attacks, Gotenks' physical moves did not seem to cause much damage to Super Boo.[7]

Gotenks used the technique again in his fight with Super Boo, during the end of the fight, when Gotenks was about to finish off Super Boo. During his last physical attacks, Gotenks fired multiple kicks to Super Boo's face.

After the fight between Gotenks and Super Boo, Super Boo used the technique in his first fight with Son Gohan. An angry Super Boo charged at Gohan, with a barrage of physical moves, including the Rapiddo Kikku, which Super Boo used while trying to hit Gohan in the face. Despite Super Boo attacking from all directions, Son Gohan dodged, or avoided all the physical attacks, including the Rapiddo Kikku.[8]

Later in the Saga, in an anime filler arc, Super Saiyan Vegeta used the Rapiddo Kikku in combination with a barrage of punches. An angry Vegeta charged at Super Boo, after his energy attack failed to harm Boo, Vegeta attacked with many physical moves, though Super Boo either blocked, or avoided them all.[9]
