Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Bomber DX: Nappa charges up a potent wave of ki and fires it with one hand. Most notably used to kill Piccolo.
  • Break Cannon: Nappa can fire a immense blue beam of energy from his mouth.
  • Oozaru: A transformation into a giant ape that takes place under a full moon. Increases his speed, strength and hearing. He's never turned into an Oozaru before, but since he has a tail he likely can.
  • Shock Wave: Nappa powers up energy and raises two fingers in the air to create a large explosion around him. He used this attack to destroy East City when he first arrived on Earth with Vegeta which is powerful enough to be seen from space.
