Homing Destructo Disk (追尾気円斬 Tsuibi Kienzan, literally Chasing Energy Circle Razor), is an improved version of Krillin's Destructo Disk attack, developed independently from him by Frieza and some others.

The main difference is that this energy disk can be controlled by the creator to change direction. This was the final attack used by Frieza in his battle against Goku; it backfired though, as Goku was able to get the disk to slice Frieza in half. Also the colors and abilities are different. It has a red central disk, with a sharp "edge" of purple/pink Ki around it. The Homing Destructo Disk can be created in pairs, and is able to lock onto the ki signature of a target. As long as the original user maintains their concentration, the Homing Destructo Disk will continue to follow a victim. Once concentration lapses, the attack can wind up anywhere.

In the anime, Cell is also shown to use the Homing Destructo Disk attack during the Cell Games. Cell can use both Kiezan and Tsuibi Kienzan (as he possesses both Frieza's and Krillin's cells).

In Dragon Ball GT, Frieza uses it when he fights Goku in Hell, only to have it backfire at him again (with much less effort required from Goku). In the anime, this variation is colored purple with a red center.

In Budōkai Tenkaichi video games, as per his other attacks (like his Death Beam & Death Ball), his version of the attack is called Death Saucer (keeping with his attacks death theme). It cannot be blocked at all.
