Goku has been using the Kamehameha wave attack ever since he learns about it from Master Roshi.

Ever since then, he never stopped using that attack on strong opponents he battled.

Also, Goku is not the only one to use the Kamehameha wave attack. There are other characters who are capable of using the Kamehameha wave.

These characters include but are not limited to, Krillin, Master Roshi, Goten, Gogeta, Vegito and, Gohan.

Goku’s Kamehameha wave has helped him to win battles and protect the earth throughout the entire series of Dragon Ball.

However, today our focus will be on the top 5 best Goku Kamehameha wave attacks in Dragon Ball.

There is a lot of Goku Kamehameha wave attack moments out there but I will give you my personal top 5 Goku Kamehameha moments.

List of Top 5 Goku Kamehameha Wave Attack

Here are the top 5 Goku Kamehameha wave attacks in Dragon Ball but are not limited to:

1. Instant Kamehameha

The instant Kamehameha is an awesome move done by Goku when he was fighting Cell. Goku discovered that he could not defeat Cell, So Goku did everything he could to try and overpower Cell.

However, it did work because Cell was too strong and had a lot more stamina than him. So Goku only had one move left and his final move was the Kamehameha wave.

But there was a twist, Everyone could see Goku making the Kamehameha wave from a far distance in the sky thinking he would blow up the planet along with Cell.

Cell, at the time, was laughing because he thought that Goku was bluffing so he would shoot it because it would blow up the planet.

However, Goku was not bluffing, at one point Goku was in the air, and in an instant, he appeared right in front of Cell and shoot the Kamehameha point-blank in Cell’s face.

Nonetheless, it was not enough to kill Cell, but I think Goku deserves an A+ for his effort.

Goku fused the two techniques together to make a super instant Kamehameha wave attack that Cell was not expecting at all.

2. (Father and Sons) Family Kamehameha

The family Kamehameha is from a Dragon Ball Movie where Goku, Gohan, and Goten got together as a family to defeat Broly.

In this movie, Gohan was the only one there facing off against Broly and he was struggling to beat Broly.

In the final sense of the battle, Gohan shoots a Kamehameha but it wasn’t enough. Goten sees his big bother struggling joins in and shoots another Kamehameha.

Then Goku arrives and also joins in. That scene was so badass because you see the three of them at the same time shooting a beam that fuses into one against Broly.


Eventually, the family Kamehameha breaks through and overpowered Broly’s beam attack with the help of Kid Trunks that sends him into the sun.

3. Goku Kamehameha Wave Vs Vegeta’s Galicgun 

This is my top 3 epic battle between Goku’s Kamehameha attack vs Vegeta’s Galic-Gun. The scene was back in Dragon Ball Saga when Vegeta and Nappa arrived on earth.

Throughout the long epic battle between Goku and Vegeta. Vegeta had enough of Goku, goes up in the air charges up a giant Galicgun, and to destroys the planet along with Goku.

Goku then answered with his Kamehameha wave attack and we had a beam struggle between Goku Kamehameha and Vegeta’s Galicgun attack.

Even though Goku’s body was all messed up, and breaking apart because of the Kaioken, he pushes even harder.

However, as Goku increases his Kamehameha, his body got pushed back and left standing on one leg controlling an even more powerful Kamehameha.

When the beam struggle was over, he was pretty broken. Nonetheless, it is one of my favorite Goku Kamehameha moments.

4. Goku’s Ultra Instinct Kamehameha

At the beginning of the battle between Goku and Kefla, Goku was not doing too well. However, after Goku turned into Ultra Instinct Omen everything changed.

At the end of a long epic battle with fused Super Saiyan 2 Kefla and Goku, Goku told Kelfa that he’s going to knock her out of the ring with his last move.

Goku charges his Kamehameha and Kefla retaliates with some type of laser beam blast at Goku to stop him.

When Ultra Instinct Omen Goku was at a point-blank range to hit Kefla, Kelfa charges a giant blast at Ultra Instinct Goku and Goku dodged it while in mid-air hitting fused Kelfa out the ring.

They even played that moment back 3 times in the anime just to show how epic that Kamehameha scene was.

5. Father And Son Kamehameha

This Kamehameha scene has to be the most popular Kamehameha ever in Dragon Ball history. This moment was full of different emotions sadness, anger, guilt, pain, and many more.

Super Saiyan 2 Gohan was all messed up and he lost his dad Goku because of his own fault.

Now he has to deal with Perfect Cell while he’s agreeing, however, Cell was not holding back and took advantage of the moment.

Cell shoots a giant Kamehameha and Gohan replied with one of his own in a beam struggle. However, full of guilt Gohan starts to give up because he thinks he is not strong enough to win.

All of a sudden, Goku started speaking to Gohan through King Kai and motivates Gohan to push even further.

Still, it was not enough and out of nowhere, Vegeta shoots a big bang attack at the cell distracting Cell and Gohan pushed all his anger into his Kamehameha wave and defeats Cell.

And just like that, the father and son Kamehameha scene became one of the most popular Dragon Ball moments in the history of anime.
