The Shocking Death Ball (電撃 地獄 玉, Dengeki Jigoku Dama; FUNimation "Electro Eclipse Bomb"; Literally meaning "Electric Shock Hell Ball") is an energy sphere attack used by Super No. 17.


Super No. 17 places his hands forward as if he is going to perform the Flash Bomb, but he forms a sphere of deep black energy that has another gray sphere inside of it that turns black in the center and has red electricity flowing around it. If he charges the attack for a few seconds, it seems to take on a decagon shape, but most commonly looks like a circle. Once he fires it, it leaves a shot black trail of energy behind before it hits the target, very easily causing a nuke-sized explosion that destroys everything caught in the explosion.

Super No. 17 used this attack against Dr. Mu to show that no one controlled him.

Video games

Shocking Death Ball in Infinite World.

An interesting point is that in the Budokai Tenkaichi video game series, he yells, "Electric Hell Sphere!!"

It later appeared in Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World and is Super No. 17's ultimate attack. It looks like a small purple orb surrounded by a red, white, and pink outer layer.

It later appeared in Dragon Ball Heroes.
