Rapid Movement is a technique used by Z Fighters and their opponents in the Dragon Ball franchise, wherein the fighter moves with great speed, which creates the illusion of teleportation.

It is one of the most frequently used techniques in the series, used for more advanced movement and dodging, and as a base for other movement techniques such as the Afterimage Technique.

Appearance in games

The technique is also used in several Dragon Ball video games, notably Dragon Ball Z: Sagas and the Budokai Tenkaichi series.

In Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, it is known as Vanish or Vanishing and is used to evade attacks and/or pursue a knockbacked opponent. It is also as part of various super, evasive, and ultimate skills. This game also introduces variations of it such as Instant Rise.

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, it is known as Z-Vanish or Z-Vanishing and works mostly the same way it did in Xenoverse. Also during a Super Saiyan transformation, the user can Z-Vanish automatically in attack range of the opponent when performing Charged melee attacks and Super Skills such as the Kamehameha.
