This article (Makousen), or a section of this article, is very messy. Please edit this article so that it looks more polished.

The Makousen is an energy sphere attack used by Piccolo.


Piccolo puts his hands together and charges a blazing white aura to form a yellow sphere of energy in his hands. He then brings his hands forward and fires the energy sphere, inflicting a massive amount of damage.


Dragon Ball Z

Piccolo used this attack in his battle against Imperfect Cell. After being knocked down by Imperfect Cell, Piccolo charged up and fired the Makousen at the approaching Imperfect Cell, creating a huge explosion. While it did blast Imperfect Cell into the ocean, the Artificial Human emerged completely unscathed much to Piccolo's shock.

Video games

It is named Light Grenade in the Budokai video game series and the Budokai Tenkaichi video game series and is one of Piccolo (End)'s Blast 2 attacks.

It later appeared in Dragon Ball: Raging Blast and is Piccolo's Ultimate Attack. When someone is hit by this attack in this game, it changes from an energy wave to a large energy sphere as in the original series. This also occurs in Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2, where the attack has been upgraded and is nicer looking, and Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi, where it has been further upgraded.
