"Fine... Here's a surprise, from me to you... Super Kamehameha!"
Goku during his fight against Piccolo Jr. in "Super Kamehameha"

Super Kamehameha (ちょうかめはめ Chō Kamehameha)[12] is an advanced and more powerful version of the Kamehameha invented by Goku.


Like many variants, the fundamentals for this technique are no different from a regular Kamehameha. The only defining traits of the Super Kamehameha are the greater ki generation and higher tier of power. This often causes the build-up of ki to shine brightly and push apart the user's hands slightly during charging. The bulbous portion of the beam near the user's hands is much larger when fired, and the beam itself is bigger than normal, often over two times the size of the user.


During the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament, Goku threatens to attack Piccolo Jr. with the technique but is temporarily halted by Master Roshi, who fears Kami will be destroyed in the process. However, Krillin reminds him that Kami can be brought back by the Dragon Balls (unaware that Kami's death renders them unusable), so Goku goes full-throttle and fires the Super Kamehameha at Jr., challenging his Explosive Demon Wave and coming out on top, injuring the evil Namekian.

In his titanic battle with Frieza on Namek, Super Saiyan Goku uses a Super Kamehameha to match 100% Full Power Frieza's Nova Strike. Though the two are initially at a standstill, Frieza's technique's greater maneuverability allows him to break off to the side of the energy wave and ram Goku into the ground.


Cell charges a Super Kamehameha

Cell uses the Super Kamehameha against Goku during their match in the Cell Games. He later uses upgraded versions against Super Saiyan 2 Gohan, the Earth-Destroying Kamehameha and Solar Kamehameha, although Gohan countered them with the Ultimate Kamehameha and the Father-Son Kamehameha, respectively.

During the Other World Tournament, Goku uses it many times during his match against Pikkon.

Later, Super Saiyan 2 Goku uses it against Majin Vegeta in order to repel his Final Flash (the sound of the attacks is heard but not seen).

Good Buu and Evil Buu used the Super Kamehameha against each other with Evil Buu overpowering Good Buu in the Energy Clash.

Super Saiyan 3 Goku used this technique against Kid Buu.

In Dragon Ball Super, Super Great Saiyaman uses a disguised version of the Super Kamehameha he dubs Super Great Saiyaman Beam to defeat Barry Kahn and force Watagash out of his body.

In Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Dark Demon Realm Mission!, Super Saiyan Goku and Xeno Goku perform a Super Kamehameha against Xeno Frieza who uses his 100% Full Power to stop both energy waves with his hands, though provides an opening for Xeno Trunks to defeat Xeno Frieza.

Film Appearances[]

In Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge, Goku uses a technique similar to the Super Kamehameha when repelling Cooler's Supernova Cooler back at him, although he fires it without cupping his hands behind him due to attempting to push the Supernova back at Cooler, nor (in the FUNimation English dub) does he actually recite the name during this instance.

In Dragon Ball Z: Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan, Goku uses the Super Kamehameha against Broly, who is unaffected by it despite being hit at point-blank range.

In Dragon Ball Z: Bojack Unbound, Super Saiyan 2 Gohan utilized the Super Kamehameha in his final duel with Bojack, just as the latter fired his Galactic Buster, as his "last word".

Other Dragon Ball stories[]

In Dragon Ball: Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans, Goku uses the Super Kamehameha and combines it with Vegeta's Final Flash, Future Trunks' Burning Attack, Gohan's Super Masenko and Piccolo's Special Beam Cannon to destroy Hatchiyack.

In Dream 9 Toriko & One Piece & Dragon Ball Z Super Collaboration Special, Akami mimics the attack after Super Saiyan Goku hits it with the attack, and it later attacks Goku with a Mouth Energy Wave version when it returns in his Fifth Form.
