The Extra Large Genki Dama is a variation of the standard Genki Dama, created by Son Gokū during his battle with Freeza.


I'm gathering the ki, but my time has run out — this is the Genki Dama's weakness… Please don't be seen, for just a little longer…!! I'm asking you…!!

—Son Gokū on the technique's shortcoming., Chapter 315

Unlike the standard Genki Dama, which focuses primarily on gathering the energy of a single planet and harnessing it into a sphere to be used, the Extra Large Genki Dama takes this to the next level, gathering energy from many surrounding planets, and accumulating it into a single energy sphere. The drawback to this variation is, in spite of the increased power output, vastly outstripping the standard Genki Dama as it was used on Earth, the sphere takes much longer to form, and leaves the user of the technique highly vulnerable in a one on one fight. Due to the Genki Dama's enhanced strength, it was capable of not only overpowering Freeza in his final form, but also damaging the planet Namek, leaving a large crater in the ocean. However, the blast was not enough to entirely kill Freeza.

In Other Media[]

In the movie, Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Battle!! The Three Great Super Saiyans, Gokū created a Genki Dama of similar size and power from the energy of Earth; however, instead of releasing the sphere, Gokū absorbed it into his being as a Super Saiyan and destroyed No. 13.[2]


  • In various Daizenshū, this technique isn't classified as a variation, but as an original Genki Dama.[3][4]
  • This technique was named in Chapter 315.
