While traveling to Namek around in the Capsule Corporation spaceship, Goku fires Bending Kamehameha waves in order to get Zenkai and increase his power. When fighting Captain Ginyu, Goku uses a Kamehameha, but the Saiyan has lost so much power that the attack bends away from Ginyu.

Krillin uses the Bending Kamehameha against Garlic Jr., performing the attack like his Scattering Bullet technique.

During the Cell Games, Cell uses a similar technique during the fight with Goku, when Goku attempts to get Cell to divert the Kamehameha upwards in order to keep the attack from destroying Earth as the android's power had been enough power to destroy Earth.

During Vegito's fight against Super Buu, the Ghost Buus use a homing Multiple Kamehameha attack against Vegito, chasing the fused Saiyan quickly across the sky until trapped in a valley.
