"Gohan released a bigger Kamehameha wave than Cell. He should be exhausted! What's his secret?!"
Vegeta in "Cell's Break Down"

The Ultimate Kamehameha (究極かめはめ波 Kyūkyoku Kamehameha) is a powerful attack used by Gohan in his Super Saiyan 2 and Potential Unleashed states.


As for a regular Kamehameha, Gohan cups his hands at his sides and charges blue energy, then thrusts his arms forward and fires the Ultimate Kamehameha. When used as a Super Saiyan 2, it is performed in the same way as a regular Kamehameha, but without taking the stance normally seen for the technique. Instead, Gohan stands perfectly still while reciting the phrase. On the final syllable ("..Haaa!"), he quickly cups his hands behind his back and fires an enormous energy wave at his opponent.

Gohan uses this attack during his battle against Perfect Cell. Realizing he could not defeat Gohan, Perfect Cell flies straight up into the air and fires his Earth-Destroying Kamehameha down at Gohan, hoping to either destroy Gohan or wipe out the entire Earth. While the various Z Fighters panic, the Super Saiyan 2 counters the incoming attack with the Standing Kamehameha, overpowering Perfect Cell's Earth-Destroying Kamehameha and destroying most of the Android's body. However, Perfect Cell is able to regenerate and the two then continue the fight.[2]


The Ultimate Kamehameha against Super 17

It is possible that this is the Kamehameha that an illusion of Gohan uses against Goku during their battle in Super Buu's insides,[3] or the Kamehameha that Gohan uses against Super 17 in Dragon Ball GT.
