The Super Genki Dama (スーパー 元気 玉, Sūpā Genki Dama; FUNimation "Super Spirit Bomb"; Literally meaning "Super Innate Spirit Ball") is a larger, more powerful version of the Genki Dama and used by Son Goku.


The Super Genki Dama was powered by the energy of every person on the newly revived Planet Earth. It was used as a final attack to defeat Kid Boo on Planet Kaishin. After Goku's Super Saiyan 3 power diminished because he was too tired from the intense fight against Kid Boo, Vegeta orchestrated a plan to create a Genki Dama strong enough to destroy Kid Boo. The plan was to resurrect the then destroyed Earth and to bring back to life everyone on the planet. That way, every person would be able to give their energy to the Genki Dama. The other Z Warriors and their friends and family heard the voices of Goku and Vegeta voices and gave their energy to the Genki Dama, however, the rest of the people of Earth simply ignored them since they had doubts about the voices.

Hercule convinced the other people to give their energy to him so that he can destroy Kid Buu. With Hercule's encouragement, all of the people of Earth now gave their energy to the Genki Dama, thus creating the Super Genki Dama. With the Super Genki Dama finally complete, Goku launched the attack at Kid Buu.

However, Kid Buu is strong enough to stop the attack and push it back at Goku, who is too exhausted to stop it. Dende then uses the last wish of the Namek Dragon Balls to restore Goku's strength back to normal. With his strength back, Goku transforms into his Super Saiyan form and pushes the Super Spirit Bomb back at Kid Buu. After several moments reflecting over the events that led to this moment and wishing he would come back as a better person so they can fight again, Goku destroys Kid Buu once and for all.


Goku used this attack in his fight against Tullece in Dragon Ball Z: The Tree of Might.

Video games

In the video games, when Goku uses this attack and it successfully hits the opponent, he transforms into a Super Saiyan and blows up the Super Spirit Bomb (in the anime when the Spirit Bomb was being pushed his way before recovering his power and turning Super Saiyan, he had to push it back).

In Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors 2, it appears as a Team Super Attack, inflicting great damage depending on the Dragon Power of the foe the player is facing. (If the damage is set to Extra-Heavy in the options menu, the attack can result in a one-hit knockout). In Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 and Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World, instead of pushing the Super Spirit Bomb he launches a one-handed wave attack similar to the Angry Kamehameha.


It is named Chō-tokudai no Genki Dama (超特大 の 元気玉, Chō-tokudai no Genki Dama; Literally meaning "Super Large Innate Spirit Ball") in Miracle Battle Carddass Dragon Ball Kai.


  • For unexplained reasons, despite the fact that the Frieza Saga implies that if the Spirit Bomb is charged to its maximum it would destroy an entire planet, the Super Spirit Bomb – far more powerful than the Spirit Bomb used against Freeza – only caused a huge trench and crater on Planet Kaishin and spared the planet from total destruction.
