God Kamehameha (ゴッドかめはめ波 Goddo Kamehameha, lit. "God Kamehame Wave") is a powerful variation of the Kamehameha used by Goku in his Super Saiyan God, Super Saiyan Blue, and Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken forms.


Goku first uses the God Kamehameha while engaging in hand-to-hand combat with final form Frieza in order to stop his Golden Death Ball. Goku then uses the dashing version of the God Kamehameha in the finale of the movie to kill the weakened Frieza preventing the tyrant from destroying the Earth with the Earth Breaker again.

During the Tournament of Destroyers in the manga, Super Saiyan Blue Goku uses this technique to attack Hit. Hit just barely dodges it, though still gaining severe burns to his shoulder.

Later, during the fight against Duplicate Vegeta on Planet Potaufeu, Goku uses this attack to destroy Duplicate Vegeta, who was seen very damaged due to the core of Commeson being crushed.

In the "Future" Trunks Saga, he also uses it to counter Fused Zamasu's Holy Wrath.

During the Zen Exhibition Match in the third round Goku activated Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken against Bergamo. Goku's God Kamehameha and Bergamo's Wolfgang Penetrator clashed in a Energy Clash with Goku's attack coming out on top.

In his sparring match with Krillin, Goku went Super Saiyan Blue and followed up with his God Kamehameha. Krillin countered to blast with his Kamehameha resulting in a Energy Clash. Android 18 then kicked away the blast into the sky.

During his fight with Android 17 he uses the God Kamehameha against the Android but 17 uses his Android Barrier to block the blast.

During the Tournament of Power, Goku used his attack against Kale who was in her Legendary Super Saiyan form. She was unaffected by the attack and walked through it with ease. Later in his fight with Jiren, he uses the God Kamehameha surprising him but he effortlessly dodges it. A few minutes later during his battle with Kefla, Goku uses a God Kamehameha in his Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken form to destroy her Gigantic Blast but she teleports behind Goku and kicks him with a heavy kick to the neck knocking Goku back to his base form. Later in his battle with Zarbuto, Rabanra, and Zirloin, Goku uses a God Kamehameha to destroy the Pretty Black Hole and ring them out in after a brief struggle.
