Explosive Madan (爆魔弾) is a short-ranged version of the Masenko used by Gohan. First, Gohan raises his hands above his head and charges yellow energy in his palm. Then, he thrusts his hands forward and fires a short, but giant yellow shock wave of energy at the opponent, inflicting a high amount of damage.

Gohan first used the Explosive Madan during his battle against Dabura in the Babidi Saga.
