"Gohan, concentrate! Look past your fear, Goten - you can do it! Are you willing to let Broly destroy the Earth?! We can end this now, but we must work together!"
Goku to his sons in Dragon Ball Z: Broly - Second Coming

Family Kamehameha (親子三大かめはめ波 Oyako Sandai Kamehameha, lit. "Parent and Child Triple Great Kamehame Wave") is the ultimate combination of the Father-Son Kamehameha and Bros. Kamehameha used by Goku, Gohan, and Goten in their Super Saiyan forms.


Super Saiyans Gohan and Goten launch their Bros. Kamehameha at the opponent but struggle to make headway. Then, their father Goku descends to stand beside them, transforming into Super Saiyan and joining them with his own Kamehameha, manifesting the Family Kamehameha. All three family members then unleash even more energy to overwhelm and engulf the opponent in the ensuing energy wave.

Usage and Power[]

In the anime version of the Supreme Kai of Time Saga, the Father-Son Kamehameha used by Super Saiyan Blue Goku and the darkness-enhanced Super Saiyan Future Warrior in Black transforms into a 3 Generations Kamehameha when Super Saiyan 3 Xeno Bardock arrives to help and adds his Rebellion Trigger. The combined resolve of the past, present and future proves more than a match for Demigra's attack, and when Goku, Future Gohan and Xeno Bardock awaken their respective transformations, the energy wave gains enough power to force the blast back considerably.

Film Appearances[]


Goku charging a Kamehameha to help his sons

In Dragon Ball Z: Broly - Second Coming, the Family Kamehameha was achieved with the help of the Dragon Balls (as Goku was dead at the time), during a brutal showdown with Legendary Super Saiyan Broly. After Broly strikes Videl, Gohan becomes completely enraged and declares he has had enough of the psychotic Saiyan, who promises it would only end with Gohan dead at his feet before launching his Omega Blaster to threaten Earth itself. Gohan responds with a Super Kamehameha but is clearly on the losing end of the Energy Clash, even after Goten joins him to form the Bros. Kamehameha. Desperate, Goten wishes Goku was there to help, and the Dragon Balls appear to resonate with his thoughts, as a vision of Goku himself descends from the clouds to join them in battle and form the Family Kamehameha. While Goku coaches his sons, an awakened Trunks flings an energy sphere into the path of the Omega Blaster, preventing Broly from powering up his attack further and weakening it. Seeing their chance, Goku, Gohan, and Goten release all of their power into the Family Kamehameha. The attack shatters Broly's Omega Blaster and his desperate attempts to stop it, blasting the Legendary Super Saiyan into the Sun.


Video Game Appearances[]

In Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors 2, the Family Kamehameha is performed like the Father-Son Kamehameha, with only Goku and Teen Gohan. In this same game, if Super Saiyan 3 Gotenks is in the team while Goku and Adult Gohan perform the Ultimate Kamehameha, Goten will also appear and shoot his own Kamehameha too.

In Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai - Another Road, a variation is used by Goku, Gohan, Goten, Future Gohan, and Future Bardock to defeat Future Kid Buu at the end of the game.

Goku, Gohan, and Goten can also use this attack in Dragon Ball Z: W Bakuretsu Impact and Dragon Ball Heroes, in Dragon Ball Heroes their GT versions can also use the attack, made up of a 10x Kamehameha, a Super Kamehameha, and a Super Kamekameha.

"Use every ounce of power you've got in you!"
Goku to Gohan and Goten when using Active Skill in Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle

In Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle, Miraculous Kamehameha Super Saiyan Goku, Unyielding Kamehameha Super Saiyan Gohan (Teen) and Furious Kamehameha Super Saiyan Goten (Kid) use the Family Kamehameha as their Super Attack. Additionally, Miracle-Calling Clash Super Saiyan Gohan (Teen) & Super Saiyan Goten (Kid) use the move as their Active Skill.

In Dragon Ball FighterZ, Adult Gohan's Bros. Kamehameha will become the Family Kamehameha if Super Saiyan Goku is on the same team and hasn't been knocked out, as well if Gotenks is not in Gohan's team, as Goten will otherwise be unavailable due to being fused. Also, the scene of its use from Broly - Second Coming is recreated in a Dramatic Finish. The only difference is that after blasting Broly into the Sun, Goku is still present, and all three family members share a fist bump.


  • Similar to its Father-Son Kamehameha component's use, the Family Kamehameha is a result of members of Goku's family combining Kamehameha waves. In both scenarios, a member of Vegeta's family used a ki blast of their own to help turn the tides against the recipient.
  • Legendary Super Saiyan 3 Broly's Gigantic Omega bearing a strong resemblance to the Kamehameha, as well as his bio for the form revealing he attained the form as a result of Saiyan Power activating upon his defeat at the hands of the Family Kamehameha during the events of Second Coming, implies that he developed the technique via mimicry as a direct response to the aforementioned defeat.
