While the fundamentals of the technique are exactly the same as a regular Kamehameha, the overall power of this Kamehameha is all the more greater by Master Roshi being in MAX Power form.
Master Roshi first uses this attack to extinguish the roaring flames on Fire Mountain. The MAX Power Kamehameha succeeds in extinguishing the fire, but the blast is so powerful that it blows away the mountain and the Ox-King's castle. Master Roshi later uses it as Jackie Chun during his match against Goku at the 21st World Martial Arts Tournament. When Goku turns into a Great Ape by taking a glimpse at the full moon, Jackie Chun fires MAX Power Kamehameha to destroy the moon, reverting Goku back to his normal self.
It is officially named Kamehameha Saidai Shutsuryoku (かめはめ波最大出力; lit. "Turtle Destructive Wave at Maximum Output") in Japanese, referring to its debut in the manga and anime series.
Appearances in Video GamesEdit
The technique was named MAX POWER Kamehameha in Budokai Tenkaichi series, where it appears as Master Roshi's Ultimate Blast in his Max Power form (spelled "MAX POWER Kamehameha" in Budokai Tenkaichi 3). Named Max Kamehameha, the technique is one of Roshi's super attacks in the Butōden series, and it used by Jackie Chun during the first boss battle of Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans.
