The Bazooka, or Rocket Launcher, is a large weapon that fires high-powered rockets.
Launch uses one to blow up a train in Brown Country so she can rob it.
Bazookas are mainly seen during the Red Ribbon Army Saga in Dragon Ball. These weapons are used many times by the Red Ribbon Army in an attempt to kill Goku, but just like all other weapons used, it fails. Colonel Silver even uses one to temporarily destroy Goku's Flying Nimbus. When Goku is storming the Red Ribbon Army's Headquarters, one of the soldiers attempts to hit Goku with a RPG-7, saying "Hey, kid! Say "Cheese!" before doing so. However, Goku ducked just as he fired the weapon, and then retorted "All right, then, "Cheese!" before proceeding to beat him up. The Dr. Slump character Charmy Yamada is seen using one to blow up King Nikochan's spaceship.
A member of Earth's Military is about to use one in an attempt to kill King Piccolo, but decides against it due to the risk of it killing King Furry. Members of Earth's Military also used bazookas against Cell in Dragon Ball Z.
Van Zant and Smitty used bazookas to attack Majin Buu and blow up his house.
In Dragon Ball GT, Giru has a small but powerful rocket launcher in his chest cavity. In the PS2 game Super Dragon Ball Z, a new design created by Akira Toriyama for Mecha Frieza has a rocket launcher mounted on his shoulder.
Appearances in video gamesEdit
Yamcha uses his Panzer Faust in Dragon Ball: Advanced Adventure. In Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Battle 22 and Dragon Ball Z: Shin Butōden, Mr. Satan has two special attacks where he uses a bazooka: Special Bazooka and Four Missile Launch.
Bazookas are used by mercenaries (including the Red Shark Gang) in Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku II and Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury.
Colonel Silver uses his bazooka in Dragon Ball: Origins 2, and in a cinematic in Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo. In Dragon Ball: Origins 2, Silver carries his bazooka on his back and, aside from using it regularly, he can strike his opponent with it. Colonel Silver's bazooka is used by General Blue in the video game Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3, during the Blast 2 attack called "I'll Shoot You!".
