Instant Kamehameha (しゅんかんどうかめはめ Shunkan Idō Kamehameha, lit. "Teleportation Kamehame Wave")[16][17][18] is a combination of Instant Transmission and the Super Kamehameha used by Goku in his base (video games) and his various Super Saiyan forms.

Overview[]

First, Goku charges up for the Kamehameha up to, "Ka... me... ha... me..." Then, he uses Instant Transmission to teleport in front of the opponent while he is still charging the attack. Finally, saying the final syllable "...ha!", Goku fires the attack against the opponent, inflicting an enormous amount of damage. The attack requires enormous concentration on the part of the user, as the Instant Transmission technique must be performed without use of the normal concentration pose (placing the index and the middle fingers on the user's forehead), at the same time as gathering the enormous amount of ki required for the Kamehameha.

Usage and Power[]

Super Saiyan Full Power Goku uses this attack during his fight with Cell. Goku begins by flying into the air and charges a Kamehameha with a massive amount of ki, so much that Cell states it has enough energy to destroy the Earth. This causes Cell and the Dragon Team to believe that Goku will not fire the attack, as his position would cause it to directly hit the Earth. However, Goku continues chanting the syllables for the attack, causing the other Z Fighters and even Cell to panic at the possibility that Goku would risk destroying the planet in an attempt to kill Cell. However, before firing the beam, Goku uses Instant Transmission to teleport in front of Cell and then fires the attack point-blank, firing upwards into Cell's body and missing the Earth entirely. The astounding, sheer power put into the blast is enough to literally vaporize the top half of Perfect Cell's body. However, due to having Piccolo's regenerative ability in his cells, and Frieza's cells increasing his durability immensely, Perfect Cell is able to both regenerate his torso and continue the fight. The attack also significantly drained both of their ki reserves (Goku from utilizing the attack, and Cell from regenerating from it).[19][20]

Super Saiyan Goku later uses a toned-down version to defeat Pikkon after figuring out the weakness of his Thunder Flash Attack. However, Goku appears at Pikkon's side rather than in front of him to blast him off of the stage.[21]

Years later, Goku also uses the technique during his battle against the God of Destruction Beerus. In order to catch the God of Destruction off-guard, Goku teleports around him multiple times and then fires his Kamehameha at Beerus. However, Beerus blocks the attack, and the fight then continues.

Super Saiyan Blue Goku used this technique against Top. But instead of simply using Instant Transmission and firing the Kamehameha point-blank, Goku teleports a little farther spot and then dashes forward swiftly and fires it point-blank, effectively making it a combination of the Dash Kamehameha and Instant Transmission. The Pride Trooper survived the blast unscathed, with the cost of a hole on his suit caused by the blast, much to his outrage.[22]

Goku used this technique against Moro after he had been restrained by Gohan's Galactic Donut. Though he succeeded in blasting off Moro's left arm which he had used to block the attack, Moro was swiftly able to recover and regenerate, rendering the attack useless.[23]

Super Full Power Saiyan 4 Limit Breaker Xeno Goku used this technique against Ultra Instinct Sign Goku who dodges it.[24]

In the Budokai series, it is named Warp Kamehameha and is not exclusive to Goku's Super Saiyan state, as he can also perform the Warp Kamehameha in his base and Super Saiyan 3 forms respectively. The attack is also performed slightly different from its usually way: Goku slams the opponent to the ground, but the opponent quickly recovers and fires a Ki Blast at Goku while the latter charges the Kamehameha. Goku then uses Instant Transmission and fires the prepared Kamehameha attack.

In the Budokai Tenkaichi series, Goku starts the attack off by hitting the opponent with a barrage of punches and kicks, then using the attack. In Budokai Tenkaichi 2 and Budokai Tenkaichi 3, the Instant Kamehameha is almost fully unblockable (it can sometimes be dodged with the proper timing).

In Burst Limit, it is one of Cell's special attacks and there is also a variation of this attack called the Instant Transmission Super Kamehameha.

In the Raging Blast series, it is one of Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2 and Super Saiyan 3 Goku's Super Attacks.

In Tenkaichi Tag Team, it is Super Saiyan Goku's Ultimate Super, and can be dodged (with intricate timing), but not blocked.

In J-Stars Victory Vs, it is named Instant Transmission Kamehameha and one of Goku's Special attacks.

In Fusions, when Perfect Cell enters the Timespace Rift via a rift and fires a Kamehameha at Tekka's Team (Tekka, Kid Trunks, Goten, Kid Goku, and Pan), Super Saiyan Goku uses the Instant Kamehameha to appear in front of Tekka's Team and counter Cell's Kamehameha with the beam from his Instant Kamehameha, saving Tekka's Team from being harmed by the blast.

In Xenoverse 2, Warp Kamehameha returns as one of Goku's Ultimate Skills. Super Saiyan Blue Goku uses it in his skillsets. The Future Warrior can obtain the Warp Kamehameha as an Ultimate Finish reward in Parallel Quest 76: "Eternal Rival". It can also be transferred over from Xenoverse. After the 1.09.00 Update, Warp Kamehameha can be added to Perfect Cell's custom skillset after purchasing it in Partner Customization.
