Super Kamehameha (超かめはめ波) is the advanced version of the Kamehameha.


Like many variants, the fundamentals for this technique are no different from a regular Kamehameha. The only defining trait with the Super Kamehameha is greater ki generation, which, interestingly in itself, is enough to generate light from the energy source while the attack is being prepared. For example, when Goku charges a normal Kamehameha wave, he cups his hands to his side, but when he does a Super Kamehameha, the energy sphere he charges is too powerful and big to cup his hands so his hands split apart.

Goku firing the Super Kamehameha during the Other World Tournament

Goku first used the attack against Piccolo Jr. during the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament. Later, Super Saiyan Goku uses the Super Kamehameha in an attempt to repel Frieza's Nova Strike during the titanic battle on Planet Namek, but Frieza manages to escape the energy wave and rams Goku into the ground. Goku used a technique similar to the Super Kamehameha when repelling Cooler's Supernova back at him, although he fired it without cupping his hands behind him due to attempting to push the Supernova back at Cooler. Perfect Cell used the Super Kamehameha against Super Saiyan 2 Gohan to eliminate the Earth. However, Gohan counter-attacked with the Standing Kamehameha.

It is said in the English bookcase of Dragon Ball GT: Final Bout that this is the "most powerful version of the Kamehameha Wave," despite the existence of the far more powerful version in Dragon Ball GT, the 10x Kamehameha.

Appearances in Video GamesEdit

The Super Kamehameha is frequently used in many Dragon Ball Z video games, such as Dragon Ball: Daimaō Fukkatsu, Dragon Ball Z: Goku Hishōden, the Butōden series, the Budokai series, the Budokai Tenkaichi series and Dragon Ball Heroes, and is a common staple on many characters' move rosters. It is Adult Gohan's Ultimate K.O. in Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors 2.

It is called Ultra Kamehameha in Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Battle 22, with Goten's version named Ultra Kamekameha.

The Super Kamehameha can also be used by Gohan and Cell in Battle Stadium D.O.N.
