The Ultimate Kamehameha (究極のかめはめ波, Kyūkyoku no Kamehameha; lit. "The Ultimate Kamehameha") is the four hundred tenth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga. The chapter's anime counterpart is the episode "Cell's Break Down".
Having hit Cell with a crushing uppercut, Gohan walks confidently towards the bio-android. Cell is now both enraged and scared. Cell throws a powerful kick at Gohan, but Gohan blocks it with merely his left forearm, stunning Cell. After a brief pause, Gohan retaliates by kicking Cell in the face, sending him skidding along the ground. As Cell attempts to regain his composure, he looks back and sees Gohan again walking towards him. As Cell gets back up, Gohan comes to stand face-to-face with him. Cell thinks that he had never thought a stronger being than him could exist, but that Gohan is indeed the stronger of the two of them.
Despite realizing Gohan's superiority, Cell grins and says that this does not mean that he loses. He then flies up into the air and begins to power up for an Earth-Destroying Kamehameha. As the rest of the Z Fighters watch in horror, Cell states that he will unleash a Kamehameha at full power, which will destroy the Earth unless Gohan takes it head-on. Gohan, however, seems unfazed. As everyone else looks on, Cell unleashes the blast. Vegeta says that it is all over.
Just as the blast nears the ground, however, Gohan suddenly unleashes a powerful Ultimate Kamehameha directly into Cell's beam. After the beams clash and the dust settles, Gohan's blast is seen traveling off into space, while the Earth is unharmed. Cell is shown to be severely injured, with his left leg, lower right leg, and left arm having been blown off, as well as the tops of the sections protruding from his head. Gohan, looking up to survey the outcome, simply chuckles at the damage he has caused.
