Krillin Solar Flare

Krillin using the technique

Solar Flare (太陽拳, Taiyōken) is a defensive-type technique invented by Tien back in the original DragonBall series. In order to use the technique, the user must place both hands in front of their face and call out the name of the technique, which then emits a bright white light that blinds everyone who sees the light minus the user themself. This technique is used so far by Goku, Krillin, and Cell.

Running gag Edit

In DragonBall Z Abridged starting in episode 15, there is a running gag in which a person who gets caught seeing a Solar Flare will see a very disturbing image for one frame before covering their eyes.

  • The only way to avoid the Solar Flare technique is by simply blinking, which was mentioned by Cell in the 2014 Halloween special.
  • It was actually first done by Goku against Vegeta during the Saiyan Saga, but no image was really shown. However, judging by the latter's reaction and how he described seeing the technique, it is possible that he saw an image of Frieza naked (likely the same image that Dodoria in episode 15).
