** Tenshinhan's Kikouhou ("Tri-Beam") is a DangerousForbiddenTechnique that [[CastFromHitPoints saps the user's life energy]] and carries a significant risk of killing him with each use. [[InformedFlaw Supposedly.]]

** Tenshinhan's Kikouhou ("Tri-Beam") is a DangerousForbiddenTechnique that [[CastFromHitPoints saps the user's life energy]] and carries a significant risk of killing him with each use. [[InformedFlaw Supposedly.]]]] The Taiyouken / Solar Flare light-blinding technique is also heavily associated with him, to the point that Goku mentally apologizes to him before using it on the Saiyans.

** Future Trunks is interesting here. He has a very visually distinct SignatureMove, but as he generally doesn't call his attacks, it's only named in the video games-- Burning Attack.

*** Bryan Fury's Mach Breaker punch. The intro for ''6'' highlights this as it has Bryan and Paul clashing with their signature punches fist-to-fist, resulting in a huge shockwave.

** [[BlackMagicianGirl Rita Mordio]] of ''TalesOfVesperia'' favors the same spell in cutscenes. Similarly, Yuri seems to prefer [[SwordBeam Azure Edge]]. Most artes in this game are [[EvolvingAttack Evolving Attacks]] that get better with continued use, so it does make ''some'' sense to pick a favorite move and stick with it. [[LampshadeHanging The rest of the party will call you on this, however]].
