Goku powers up to Kaio-ken x3 as he charges at the opponent and roundhouse kicks them up into the air. Then, he flies up in the air and punches the opponent away. Next, he flies up over the opponent and down behind to double kick them further up into the air. Finally, Goku flies up into the air around the opponent and hook kicks them down into the ground, inflicting a huge amount of damage.
Goku used this attack during his first battle against Vegeta. After being dominated by Vegeta's increased speed and power even with his Kaio-ken x2, Goku decided to use his Kaio-ken x3. Goku charged up and his power soon surpassed that of Vegeta's, much to the Saiyan prince's shock and surprise. Activating his Kaio-ken x3, Goku charged at Vegeta and attacked him with the Kaio-ken Attack, knocking him many meters away into a mountain.
Appearances in Video GamesEdit
Kaio-ken Attack was named in the Budokai Tenkaichi video game series, where it is one of Goku (Early)'s Blast 2 attacks. In Budokai Tenkaichi 1 and Budokai Tenkaichi 2, the name was given to Goku's other Kaio-ken rush attack, Kaio-ken Finish; this was later fixed in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 and Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team. The Raging Blast games and Dragon Ball Z For Kinect features the Kaio-ken Attack and Kaio-ken Finish as separate attacks.
