Scatter Shot (連続閃光弾, Renzoku Sen Kōdan; English "Hellzone Grenade") is an energy bullet attack invented by piccolo first used by Piccolo in many of his battles. First, Piccolo swings his arms apart and charges a purple energy sphere in each hand. Then, he yells, "Scatter Shot!" as he fires multiple purple-colored energy spheres against the opponent, inflicting a huge amount of damage.

Piccolo first used this attack during his battle against Dr. Wheelo in the movie Dragon Ball Z: The World's Strongest. When Goku knocked down Dr. Wheelo with his Power Pole, Piccolo retaliated by blasting the evil robotic scientist with the Scatter Shot. However, Dr. Wheelo was undamaged by the double team attack and headbutted Piccolo into the ceiling.

Piccolo later used this attack during his battle with Frieza after fusing with Nail. After getting knocked into the ground by Frieza, Piccolo removed his weighted clothing and powered up to fight Frieza. Frieza was at first unimpressed, but was soon overpowered by Piccolo's strength and knocked deep into the ground. Piccolo then blasted Frieza with the Scatter Shot, creating a huge explosion. However, Frieza managed to survive the attack and continued the battle with Piccolo.

Vegeta used the same attack on Super Buu w/ Gohan absorbed, though the Majin was able to deflect this attack using an Energy Shield, sending the attack flying and creating explosions on the wasteland.

The attack is used in the Budokai series as Piccolo's ultimate attack, under the name "Hellzone Grenade".

It is also used in Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans. Piccolo sends the enemy into the air and uses the Scatter Shot to form a cirlce around the opponent. He then controls the Scatter Shot to launch towards the enemy, causing it to explode. It is also called Hellzone Grenade.
