Bending Kamehameha (曲がるかめはめ波 Magaru Kamehameha, lit. "Bending Kamehame Wave") is a variation of the Kamehameha used by Goku.


The user can change the Kamehameha's course, allowing the user to surprise his or her opponent.



King Piccolo hit by Goku's Bending Kamehameha

Goku first uses this attack to cause an avalanche to fall on Ninja Murasaki, and later to directly hit King Piccolo in the head during their second showdown.

Years later, Goku uses the Bending Kamehameha against Raditz, but Raditz easily blocks the attack.

While traveling to Namek around in the Capsule Corporation spaceship, Goku fires Bending Kamehameha waves in order to get Saiyan Power and increase his power. When fighting Captain Ginyu, Goku uses a Kamehameha, but the Saiyan has lost so much power that the attack bends away from Ginyu.

Krillin uses the Bending Kamehameha against Garlic Jr., performing the attack like his Scattering Bullet technique.

During the Cell Games, Cell uses a similar technique during the fight with Goku, when Goku attempts to get Cell to divert the Kamehameha upwards in order to keep the attack from destroying Earth as the android's power had been enough power to destroy Earth.

During Vegito's fight against Super Buu, the Ghost Buus use a homing Multiple Kamehameha attack against Vegito, chasing the fused Saiyan quickly across the sky until trapped in a valley.

Goku's Bending Kamehameha in Battle of Gods

In Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, Goku fires a Kamehameha which Goku redirects at himself and blocks while preparing on King Kai's Planet for the second fight with Beerus.

In his fight with Goku, Syn Shenron does a Kamehameha nearly identical to the Bending Kamehameha to attack the Super Saiyan 4.

Video Game Appearances

Kid Goku is able to use the attack in Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Battle 22. In the Budokai Tenkaichi series, charged Ki Blasts which are fired like the Kamehameha and home to the opponent are used by Goku some of his various forms.

"Enter additional input after firing to make the Kamehameha chase your opponent!"
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Skill description

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, it appears as a Super Skill used by Goku in his Turtle Hermit Gi 2 (which is his Weighted clothing removed outfit from the Raditz Saga which is likely a reference to its use during the battle with Raditz). Additional input allows the user to make the wave chase their opponent. Additionally the Future Warrior can obtain this technique by purchasing it at the Skill Shop. After the 1.09.00 Update, it can be added to Krillin's custom skillset after it has been purchased for 5 TP Medals in Partner Customization. It can also be added to Adult Gohan's custom skillset for 5 TP Medals as well.
