"Gohan, you gotta fight back! (...) Remember all the pain he's caused and the people he's hurt. Use your anger! Let your power explode!"
Goku to Gohan during the Energy Clash with Cell.

"Combine Your Strength! The Final Kamehame-Ha!" (ちからわせろ!さいきょうさいのかめはめ Chikara Awasero! Saikyō Saigo no Kamehameha, lit. "Combine Our Power! The Mightiest, Final Kamehameha") is the ninety-sixth episode of Dragon Ball Z Kai. This episode first aired in Japan on March 20, 2011. Its original American airdate was December 23, 2011.



The Father-Son Kamehameha

Cell continues to charge his Solar Kamehameha and reveals that not only has he gathered enough energy to destroy the Earth, but he also now has the potential to destroy the entire solar system with this blast. Meanwhile, Vegeta apologizes to Gohan for his recklessness. As Gohan and the others watch on hopelessly, Goku contacts his son from the Other World via King Kai's telepathy and tells him that even in his injured state he has the potential to defeat Cell. Reinvigorated, Gohan prepares a final, one-handed Kamehameha to repel Cell's blast. As the two warriors struggle to overpower each other, Piccolo, Tien Shinhan, Yamcha, and Krillin bombard Cell with their Ki Blasts in a knowingly futile attempt to help, but are easily repelled. As Goku coaxes Gohan to release his full power against Cell, Vegeta returns to the battlefield and launches one final Galick Blazer, which temporarily distracts Cell.


Super Perfect Cell is obliterated by Gohan's Kamehameha

Seeing the opportunity, Gohan finally releases his full strength and overpowers Cell's wave, obliterating Cell and saving the Earth from destruction. Gohan has won and the Cell Games are finally over. While an exhausted, Gohan falls to the ground with a smile on his face.
