Self-Destruction is referred to as both a Ki Manipulation Technique, and an ability used to blow up one's own body to inflict damage to the opponent.


Self Destructions is an inherent ability to blow themselves, at the cost of their lives. Additionally in the film, Kami uses his variation through the use of Ki. The method varies — Chaozu utilises his psychic abilities, Cell inflates his body, the Saibaimen also naturally possess the ability, and No. 16 utilises a bomb implanted in his body.[1]

In the anime, Son Gokū and Kami both attempted similar techniques, utilizing their ki in an attempt for a last-ditch explosion.[4] Despite utilizing ki, it is considered the same ability as the Self-Destruction that others use which is inherent to their being.[5]
