Light Grenade (激裂光弾) is an energy sphere used by Piccolo. First, Piccolo puts his hands together in front as he charges a blazing white aura and forms a yellow energy sphere in his hands. Then, he brings his hands forward and fires the energy sphere, inflicting a massive amount of damage. This technique is used only after Piccolo fused with Kami.


Piccolo as he fires the Light Grenade

Only in the anime, Piccolo first used this technique during his battle against Android 17. In both anime and manga, Piccolo uses the Light Grenade during his battle against Cell in his Imperfect form; after being knocked down by Cell, Piccolo charged up and fired the Light Grenade against the approaching Cell, creating a huge explosion. While it did blast Cell into the ocean, the Android emerged completely unscathed, much to Piccolo's shock.


Piccolo charges the Makousenha

Piccolo later uses it in the anime in the form of an energy wave to finish off his Scatter Shot technique in his battle against Android 17, but Android 17 evades the scatter shots with easy and then deflects the Makousenha, causing it to explode and rain down tiny orbs of energy.[5] He later uses it in a Beam Struggle against one of his clones while training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber.[6]

It appears in the video games Dragon Ball Z Gaiden: Saiyajin Zetsumetsu Keikaku (spelled 激烈光弾), the Butōden series, Dragon Ball Z: The Legend, Dragon Ball Z: Legendary Super Warriors (named F.Lightbomb), the Budokai series, the Supersonic Warriors series, Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans, and Dragon Ball Heroes. In the Budokai Tenkaichi series , the Light Grenade is one of Piccolo's Blast 2 attacks, while in the Raging Blast series, it is his Ultimate Attack; in the Raging Blast games, when someone is hit by this attack, it changes from an energy ball to a large energy blast, like it was in the original series.

Semi-Perfect Cell can use this technique in Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors 2, and Super Buu can use it after absorbing Piccolo in the Budokai series.
