Blocking Dark Sword Strike
The Dark Sword Strike will chop down your health a massive portion; with each hit landing for about 100,000 of health. Should you think that you can’t get the timing of Dabura’s attack right, simply try to block it.

Ki Blasts and Special Attacks

Dark Sword Strike
This is one of Dabura’s deadly attacks and it deals a lot of physical damage. Avoid this at all costs or at least try to block all incoming blows.

Flame Blaster
Dabura will send out a fire blast towards you which will explode on impact. A fast projectile but should be easy to dodge if you have a little distance between you and Dabura. If close, then guard whatever little damage you can.

And that is how you beat the King of the Underworld in DBZ Kakarot! Disappointingly, he didn’t have a lot of diversity in his skill-set but still put up quite the challenge with the only two abilities he had.

Stick close and utilize your ranged attacks when you have the window of opportunity and Dabura should be out in no time.
