"Outta the way, Vegeta! FRIEEEEEZAAAAA!!"
— Goku prior to firing his Dash Kamehameha at Frieza in "The Earth Explodes?! A Decisive Kamehameha!"

Dash Kamehameha (ダッシュかめはめ波 Dasshu Kamehameha, lit. "Dash Kamehame Wave") is a variation of the Kamehameha used by Goku in his Super Saiyan form against Super 17 in Dragon Ball GT. In Dragon Ball Super, Goku used this in his Super Saiyan Blue form to prevent Frieza from destroying Earth after a Temporal Do-Over done by Whis.

Overview

After Super Saiyan Goku is confused why his ki blasts aren’t having any effect on Super 17, he starts running towards the Android and charges up a Kamehameha while running. He unleashes it at Super 17 when he gets up close, only to discover that the energy wave had powered him up even further.

After Frieza destroys the Earth using his Earth Breaker, Goku realizes that he should have killed Frieza when he had the chance and is reminded by Whis that he can thank to Whis' Temporal Do-Over, which rewinds time back 3 minutes before Frieza destroys the Earth. Just as Frieza is about to initiate his Earth Breaker, Super Saiyan Blue Goku charges towards Frieza shouting the tyrant's name which distracts Frieza from finishing his attack. Goku continues flying towards Frieza, then stops by turning and fires a God Kamehameha at Frieza which kills the tyrant.

Video Game Appearances

This technique was named in Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden and appears as Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Goku's Final Ultimate Combo. Since it is a Final Ultimate Combo, it can only be performed while Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Goku is in the Awakened state (achieved at low health), with his Spirit Gauge charged to 200%, and the combo to use it must be performed in the air. When performed Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Goku will charge up his energy then charge towards the opponent before firing a powerful God Kamehameha.[1]

This technique appears in Dragon Ball FighterZ under the name Extreme Speed Kamehameha and is one of Super Saiyan Blue Goku's super attacks. By utilizing one bar of ki meter, Goku will teleport slightly or jump into the air diagonally above the opponent depending on if you are on the ground or in the air and will fire it diagonally downwards depending on the side you are facing towards the opposition, causing a great deal of damage. It can be performed in the air or on the ground and is also the finisher for Super Saiyan Blue Goku's Medium auto-combo.

Trivia

  • This is the second technique to be used to kill Frieza, the first being Future Trunks' Shining Sword Attack.
  • Frieza is the second main villain from the DBZ era to be killed by a variation of the Kamehameha, the first being Cell who was killed by Super Saiyan 2 Gohan's and Goku's Father-Son Kamehameha.
  • Frieza is the first main villain in Dragon Ball Super to be killed by a variation of the Kamehameha, the second being Duplicate Vegeta who was destroyed by the God Kamehameha.
  • The only known villain to survive this variation of the Kamehameha is Super 17 in the Dragon Ball GT episode "Raising the Stakes", due to him having energy absorption abilities similar to Android 19 and Dr. Gero.
