The Dash Punch is a Physical Martial Arts Technique used exclusively by Son Gokū.


The execution of this technique is simple; by dashing, Gokū homes in quickly onto his opponent and lands a solid punch. The exact strength of this technique, however, is unknown, as Beerus was able to easily block the technique without any harm to himself. However, the force of the blow was enough to cause intense damage to the area around Gokū, hinting at immense power behind this single blow.[2][3] Whis himself was able to dodge the technique when Gokū used it against him, and it only nicked his hair.[4]


  • While this technique has never properly made contact in either the movies or the manga, in the animated opening cinematic for Dragon Ball Z Battle of Z, the move did connect with Beerus but barely fazed him.
