The Dragon Thunder (ドラゴン サンダー, Doragon Sandā; FUNimation "Dragon Thunder Clap") is a rush attack used by Omega Shen Long and Rage Shen Long.



The Dragon Thunder was first used by Rage in his second form against Son Goku, stunning him fairly well. He later used it briefly against Super Saiyan 4 Goku, but to no effect. This same attack was used on Super Saiyan 4 Goku by Omega in "[[Surpassed Limits. It was shot down from the sky as a lightning bolt and sent the airborne Goku crashing down like a lightning bolt, but it still did not affect him much. Omega also used this attack in a painful variation against Vegeta in which he extended his spikes long enough to stab Vegeta in the left shoulder and electrocuted him, nearly killing him.

Video games[edit]

In Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 and Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World, this attack is simply Omega calling down thunder from the sky just like the first time he used it against Super Saiyan 4 Goku.

The variation Omega used against Vegeta is his rush attack in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 and Budokai Tenkaichi 3, but unlike in the series the spikes impale his opponent on more than just one shoulder.


  • This attack is named Dragon Thunder Clap when Rage uses it and the first time Omega uses it in the English dubs of Dragon Ball GT. Omega says, "Dragon Thunder" and adds the addition of impaling his victim.
