Telekinesis (超の力, Chō no Ryoku; Literally meaning "Psycho Power") is a technique that allows to manipulate objects and other people with the power of one's mind.
The first use of telekinesis is seen during Tenkaichi Budokai when Chiaotzu fights Krillin and is able to control his movements to some extent without touching him. In Dragon Ball Z, Vegeta shows another use of this technique on the planet Arlia where he kills the Arlian king by lifting a big number of stones and throwing them at him. At the same time Piccolo trains by lifting and putting back whole pyramids (he screws up eventually, detonating one of them and causing a major earthquake).
Since both the protagonists and their opponents quickly grow considerably stronger, later in the series it is mostly used to move inanimate objects (such as Dragon Balls) around. Frieza and most of his named henchmen (Zarbon, Dodoria, Ginyu) seem to know this technique. In the next sagas telekinesis becomes even more common. Frieza kills Krillin using telekinesis. He pulls him up in the air, and imitates crush with his hand, making Krillin explode.
