Multiple Kamehameha (マルチプルかめはめ波 Maruchipuru Kamehameha, lit. "Multiple Kamehame Waves") is a combined version of the Kamehameha.
Two or more fighters fire multiple Kamehamehas (one per fighter) simultaneously at a single point. This usually causes their separate Kamehamehas to merge into one giant Kamehameha blast at the opponent.
Usage and Power
During his image training against Gohan aboard the Nameless Namek's Spaceship on the way to Namek, Krillin uses the Tri-Form technique and then the Kamehameha, resulting in three Kamehamehas being fired towards Gohan.
The attack is later used by Krillin and Yamcha under the name Team Work Kamehameha, alongside Piccolo's Masenko and Tien Shinhan's Ki Blast Cannon, in an attempt to distract Super Perfect Cell long enough for Super Saiyan 2 Gohan's Father-Son Kamehameha to overpower Cell's Solar Kamehameha.
In Dragon Ball Super, after Goku and Flying Nimbus are freed from the Super Shenron illusion in the Forest of Terror, he uses a Kamehameha in his Super Saiyan Blue form alongside Krillin's (using his No Ego Zone power-up), the latter's energy wave swirling around the former's to obliterate the illusion completely.
It is also used by Goku, Trunks and Pan to destroy General Rilldo on planet M-2, and by Pan and Goku against Haze Shenron. Pan and Goku later use another Multiple Kamehameha attack, in order to defeat and vaporize Oceanus Shenron, using this version of the Multiple Kamehameha wave under the name Grandfather-Granddaughter Kamehameha (祖父孫娘かめはめ波 Sofu Magomusume Kamehameha).
In Dragon Ball Z: Bio-Broly, Goten and Trunks used the Multiple Kamehameha under the name Friend Kamehameha (友人かめはめ波 Yūjin Kamehameha), also called Double Kamehameha, in an attempt to beat Bio-Broly. Later, with Krillin's assistance, they launch a Triple Kamehameha to cause a tidal wave to overflow the laboratory island and solidify the culture fluid that was quickly expanding all over Lord Jaguar's laboratory island.

Video Game appearances
In Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors 2, Goku and Gohan can use a Multiple Kamehameha team attack called Ultimate Kamehameha. The technique can also be used by several Z Fighters in Dragon Ball Z: W Bakuretsu Impact, such as Goku, Krillin, Yamcha, Gotenks, and Gogeta.
In promotional movies for Dragon Ball Heroes, Goku and the Saiyan Hero Beat perform a Multiple Kamehameha against Cell, and the Saiyans Hero Beat and the Saiyan Heroine Note perform a Multiple Kamehameha while fighting Frieza's soldiers. In the Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission animation, Goku, the Saiyan Hero, and the Saiyan Heroine use the technique against Legendary Super Saiyan Broly.
Goten, Trunks, and Future Trunks use their Kamehamehas in conjunction to defeat Super Perfect Cell in Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai. Goku and Vegeta use it again in the game finale to finish off Super Janemba (who had absorbed a fake Vegito and Kid Buu to increase his power).
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 after the 1.09.00 Update, several versions of the Multiple Kamehameha appear as special two person team attack Ultimate Skills called Dual Ultimate Attack which allow Time Patrollers and Instructors to perform a combined Ultimate Attack. These variations of the Multiple Kamehameha include Goku's DUAL Super Kamehameha, DUAL Super Kamehameha: Gohan (Adult), Cell's DUAL Perfect Kamehameha, and Future Gohan's DUAL One-Handed Kamehameha (which despite its name and skill description is actually a Dual Ultimate version of One-Handed Kamehameha mk.II as both fighters use the One-Handed mk.II's secondary blast). Additional Future Gohan and can acquire the Father-Son Kamehameha through Partner Customization, allowing him and the spirit of his father Future Goku to attack with the Father-Son Kamehameha. During the Warrior of Hope Saga when teamed up with the Toki Toki City Hero, the Future Warrior can perform any of the Multiple Kamehameha Dual Ultimate Attacks with the Toki Toki City Hero.
In Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle, several instances of Multiple Kamehamehas appear, including a Double Kamehameha by Era-Spanning Kamehameha Grandpa Gohan & Pan (GT).
In Dragon Ball Legends, the Family Kamehameha appears as an Ultimate Move Arts for Legends Limited Super Saiyan Goten and Super Saiyan Gohan (Adult). If Legends Limited Super Saiyan Goten can KO the final enemy with Family Kamehameha, its Legendary Finish will resemble how Broly was defeated in Broly - Second Coming. The Father-Son Kamehameha appears as the Ultimate Move Arts for Legends Limited Super Saiyan 2 Gohan (Youth). If Legends Limited Super Saiyan 2 Gohan (Youth) can KO the final enemy with the Father-Son Kamehameha, then Super Saiyan 2 Gohan will walk forward while firing the Father-Son Kamehameha before unleashing the final blast at the opponent effectively reenacting how he defeated Cell. Additionally it is possible to perform the Multiple Kamehameha and its variants via a successful Rising Rush. However this requires a team of characters with a Blast type Kamehameha, Super Kamehameha, Kaioken Kamehameha, or Super Kaioken Kamehameha Special Move Arts.
