After Goku and Vegeta lost both their fusion into Gogeta as well as their Super Saiyan 4 transformations, the battle against Omega Shenron seemed hopeless. However, as Omega was about to kill the Z Fighters, Goku, who was thought to have been killed while trying to stop an energy ball from destroying the Earth, rises up from a crater and prepares the Spirit Bomb with all the energy from the people on Earth. Even so, it is still not powerful enough to defeat Omega Shenron.
However, thanks to the help of King Kai, along with the other Kais, Goku is able to ask every person in the universe to donate their energy to the Spirit Bomb, thus creating the Universal Spirit Bomb. With the attack complete, Goku launches the Universal Spirit Bomb against Omega Shenron, completely destroying the Shadow Dragon and moving it upward into the sky where it finally bursts into a massive, black explosion. With all of the Shadow Dragons finally defeated, the Dragon Balls are restored to their normal states.
This technique is named Super Ultra Spirit Bomb (超ウルトラ元気玉, Chou Urutora Genki Dama, Super Ultra Spirit Ball) in the original version of the sixty-third episode of Dragon Ball GT and in the Dragon Ball GT Perfect File volume 2.
Universal Spirit Bomb appeared in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 and is Goku (GT)'s Ultimate Blast under the name "Spirit Bomb". While it is the largest and strongest version out of all the other Spirit Bombs in the anime, it is the smallest version in the video game (other than Goku (Early)'s version), possibly due to Goku's stature as a child. This technique also appeared in Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World, but just like Budokai Tenkaichi 3, the attack's name is "Spirit Bomb". It is not the strongest of the Spirit Bombs in this game, due to its usage only being available to his base form. It also appeared in a cutscene in which Goku used it to defeat Omega Shenron.
