The Thunder Flash is a Ki Manipulation Technique performed by Paikūhan.


It defeats the enemy by attacking them with flames that burn with dazzling light. A technique he used against Gokū in the finals of the Afterworld Budōkai. As Paikūhan’s ultimate secret weapon, even Gokū had to use all his strength to endure it. However, Gokū took advantage of the unguarded moment when the technique is fired to launch a Kamehameha and achieve a turnabout victory.[1]
