Notable Attacks / Techniques:

Ki: The fighting power and life force of a martial artist, a tangible energy derived from the user's vigor, courage, and mind. It can be used in a number of ways, such as to surpass the limits of one's body to greatly increase in strength, and it can be fired as blasts of energy or used to create defensive barriers. Along with his Saiyan blood, Ki acts as the source of Bardock's incredible power and abilities.

  • Riot Javelin: Bardock's signature attack, in which he gathers his ki into the shape of a sphere and launches it at his opponent.

Saiyan Physiology: The physiology of a Saiyan, an aggressive warrior race of conquerors. Saiyans have the natural ability to control ki and to fly. In addition, while his lifespan is comparable to that of a human, Bardock will remain at his peak strength for much longer. One of the most powerful abilities of a Saiyan is their ability to grow stronger and stronger through combat, allowing Bardock to constantly push his own limits during a fight and rise to higher and higher peaks in power. This ability grants a substantial boost in power when Bardock is badly injured, allowing him to reach a whole new level of power once he recovers.

  • Oozaru: When exposed to the light of the full moon, as long as he still has his tail, Bardock will undergo a transformation into the Oozaru, a massive, gigantic monkey with far greater power.
    • Super Saiyan: The famous, legendary transformation of a Saiyan that allows them to greatly surpass their limits and reach the fabled state that is Super Saiyan.
