Like many variants, the fundamentals for this technique are no different from a regular Kamehameha. The only defining trait with the Super Kamehameha is the greater ki generation, which, interestingly in itself, is enough to generate light from the energy source while the attack is being prepared. For example, when Goku charges a normal Kamehameha wave, he cups his hands to his side, but when he does a Super Kamehameha, the energy sphere he charges is too powerful and big to cup his hands so his hands split apart. Goku firing the Super Kamehameha during the Other World TournamentAdded by Free runGoku first uses the attack against Piccolo Jr. during the23rd World Martial Arts Tournament. Later, Super Saiyan Goku uses the Super Kamehameha in an attempt to repel Frieza's Nova Strike during the titanic battle on Namek, but Frieza manages to escape the energy wave and rams Goku into the ground. Goku uses a technique similar to the Super Kamehameha when repelling Cooler's Supernova back at him, although he fires it without cupping his hands behind him due to attempting to push the Supernova back at Cooler. Cell uses the Super Kamehameha against Goku, during their match in the Cell Games. He later uses upgraded versions against Super Saiyan 2Gohan, the Earth-Destroying Kamehameha and the Solar Kamehameha.
It is said in the English bookcase of Dragon Ball GT: Final Boutthat this is the "most powerful version of the Kamehameha Wave," despite the existence of the far more powerful version in Dragon Ball GT, the 10x Kamehameha.
