Instant Transmission (瞬間移動) is a technique for traveling long distances instantly. This action is usually accompanied by the user placing his index and middle fingers on his forehead to help him concentrate, though if extra time is taken the technique can be performed without this aid. It was taught to Goku when he was on Planet Yardrat after his deadly battle with Frieza.

The Yardrats taught Instant Transmission to Goku during his time on their planet. Instant Transmission allows Goku and anyone that is in physical contact with him to instantly travel great distances (from meters to light-years, or even travel between the living world and Other World ) just by concentrating on a particular individual's ki signature, and 'transmitting' or feeling that being's location. Goku can take passengers along with him as long as they are touching him, but in the episode "Piccolo's Decision ", it is revealed that this ability has limits, as Goku said he could not move the entire world's population in one trip.

Because Instant Transmission requires a ki signature to lock onto (whereas Instantaneous Movement does not), the successful performance of the technique is dependent on one's ability to detect them. For example, during the Kid Buu Saga. Goku proclaimed to Dende that he could not travel to New Namek because their ki signatures were too far away.

The technique has many practical uses throughout the series. Goku intended to use the technique to get to Earth before the rebuilt Frieza could harm anyone, but found it unnecessary because Future Trunks had already come to finish Frieza and his father off. Instead, Goku simply demonstrated its ability to the fellow Z Fighters after his return by warping to Kame House and stealing Master Roshi 's sunglasses in under a few seconds. Throughout the rest of the series, Goku uses the technique often to travel around the universe. Goku can even shift through realms, having no problem teleporting from Earth to King Kai's planet. and from there to New Namek. Goku describes the technique as allowing him to move at the speed of light (specifically 186,282.397 miles per second), Goku uses two of his popular attacks with this technique, such as Instant Kamehameha and Instant Spirit Bomb.

It is revealed in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan . that this move briefly moves the user into a pocket dimension which then allows them to move to any location instantly. However, the user cannot travel to an area they have never been to unless they can detect someone familiar to them to use as a homing beacon.

When Goku became a child in Dragon Ball GT . the ability to use this technique was greatly hindered to the point where he just randomly travels to places a short distance away; however, as a Super Saiyan 4. he is able to use the ability to its full potential.

  • Yardrats. the inhabitants of Planet Yardrat, have invented this technique and they taught it to Goku. They use it in the computer game Dragon Ball Online to teleport people all over the world.
    • Soba. a powerful Yardrat who appears in the video game Dragon Ball Z: Sagas and confronts Goku before he returns to Earth.
  • King Kai mentions he could have taught Goku the technique in the Cell Games Saga when Goku visited him on his planet to find the location of the New Namek. This is stated only in the anime, as in the manga, King Kai simply asked Goku if he learned it from the Yardrats.
  • Cooler. it is revealed in Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai (the what-if story around Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn ) that during his time in Hell. he mastered the technique.
  • Cooler's metal clone servants in the film Dragon Ball Z: The Return of Cooler also have the knowledge of Instant Transmission. A Meta-Cooler is first seen using the technique during his fight with Goku on New Namek. He revealed it after Goku used it to dodge a Supernova. Meta-Cooler states "that's quite a clever trick", and Goku responds "Yeah, it's called Instant Transmission", only to have Cooler blandly reply "I know. it's of one my favorite techniques" (in the original version, Cooler stated that he was surprised that Goku knew the move as well). After this, there were times when both used it to fight; when used by both at the same moment, it resulted in the two battling in the dimension that makes up Instant Transmission. When this occurred, once, Meta-Cooler won the first skirmish in the Instant Transmission dimension by grabbing Goku by the leg and slamming him through a mountain; later, Goku entered it to save Vegeta from a crushing blow from Meta-Cooler, who had entered the dimension to surprise Vegeta. He also uses this technique occasionally in the story mode of Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai .
  • Cell learns this technique through absorbing Goku's cells after his self-destruction on King Kai's planet (near the end of the Cell Games Saga ).
  • The fusions Gogeta and Vegito. being two fusions of Goku and Vegeta, can use this technique.
  • Kami. Mr. Popo. Fortuneteller Baba. Tsururin Tsun. Kibito and later Kibito Kai also know a variation of the technique called Instantaneous Movement . This technique does not require an energy signature to home in on and does not use the typical Goku gesture.
  • Kid Buu also uses this technique to teleport to various planets in search of Goku and Vegeta. He learned it from imitating Kibito Kai's Instantaneous Movement.
  • Fighters learn this technique at level 38 in Dragon Ball Online. The Instant Transmission transports its user to the location of a mutual friend or party member.
