Destructo Disc

Destructo Disc

Kienzan (🇯🇵気円斬, Circular ki cutting) is one of Krilin's signature techniques, consisting of a ki disc that spins rapidly around itself and generates a saw-like sound as it moves.

How to use it

To use this attack, the user raises his hand and accumulates enough ki in his palm to mold it into a sharp, crisp circle.

Disadvantages

Usually, it is a deadly technique if the target receives it with full force but it is also very predictable because of the charging🔋 time it needs and its trajectory is easy to dodge if the opponent reacts at the right time.

History

The Kienzan commonly known in the series was invented by Krilin and launched for the first time in combat against Nappa who thought it would not harm him by being carried away by the low energy of the attack, but he dodged it only thanks to Vegeta who made him see that it could kill him, which only caused a wound on the Saiyan's cheek. His incredible power is appreciated when Nappa dodges it, cutting a large mountain in his path.
He tried again, against Vegeta Ōzaru, in an attempt to cut off his tail, but Vegeta managed to dodge it. Later, during the battle with Freezer, Krilin was able to cut off Freezer's tail, while he was in his second form, as well as release several Kienzan at once although Freezer dodges them. Later, he was able to launch a splitting version and target attacks from multiple angles (only in the anime). He also cuts Little Boo in half when he arrives on Kaio's planet in the Otherworld (though Boo was able to use his unique powers and immediately rejoins).

During Garlic Jr.'s Arc, Krilin uses the Kienzan against Vinegar, who was able to hold it in his hand and throw it back at him.

Son Goku, Vegeta, Tenshinhan and Android Number 18 have similar attacks that each uses on more than one occasion or in sporadic situations. Vegeta uses it during Saiyan Bow to cut off the tail of Gohan transformed into Ōzaru, Goku does the same in the third 🐲Dragon Ball Z: The Decisive Super Battle for Planet Earth movie to cut off his son's tail and also uses it to defeat Super Boo, but he regenerates. Tenshinhan uses it when he faces Trunks from the Alternate Future in the Martial Arts Tournament during the movie Dragon Ball Z: The Galaxy is in Peril! A super awesome warrior. 👾Number 18 uses it when he faces Trunks and Goten disguised as Mighty Mask in the World Martial Arts Tournament. Goku used the Kienzan against Jiren in Dragon Ball Super.

However, Krilin's Kienzan is moderately more powerful than these and very rarely explodes if it hits a very hard to pierce target, so it can be assumed that they copied it from Krilin, but without learning to use it as effectively as he is capable of.

 

Variations

  • Kienzan Volley: It is a variation of this technique used by Krilin, which consists of launching multiple Kienzan or launching a single giant disk that fragments into many disks that attack consecutively.
  • Tail Cutter: Support technique used to cut off an opponent's tail.
  • Double Kienzan: It is a variant of this technique used by Freezer that consists of directing the disc in the air after having thrown it. Two discs can be thrown at the same time. It was used against Goku on Namek when Freezer had no hope of survival, the only thing he got through the technique is his own destruction when the disc came after him and cut him in two. Unlike the usual technique, this variant is red in color.
  • Six Blade Kienzan: Six Kienzan feint version used by Son Goku in the Tournament of Strength.
  • Whirling Kienzan: Almond's variant in response to Krilin's Kienzan.
  • Dual Kienzan: An attack used by Krilin and 👾Android Number 18 in the video game Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors 2.
  • Circular Cutter: is an offensive technique used by Ganos in video games.

Curiosities

Destructo Disc

  • The technique can be stopped if you have a ki much higher than the one who throws it, as it was observed when Cell received a Kienzan from Krilin in the neck, Gohan Super Saiyan 2 who could stop two of Cell with his hands and Jiren who received several Kienzan of six blades from Goku👾. Otherwise, even if he is stronger, the attack could even kill him. That is noticeable when Krilin uses it against Nappa and Freezer Second Form, because although they were stronger than him, their power was not high enough to withstand or stop the attack. When they saw that he could cut them, they immediately dodged it, although Freezer failed to save his tail.
  • As well as the Multiform technique or Regeneration, Cell can best use the technique by moving it horizontally or vertically with his arms.
  • Android Number 18 can use the Kienzan in the video game Dragon Ball Z: Super Butōden 3 and 🐲Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3, but in the former it is red and in the latter they are purple like Baby's, instead of being yellow like the one he uses against Goten and Trunks.
