"The Kamehameha" (かめはめ波, Kamehameha) is the forty-seventh chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.
As the final round commences, Jackie Chun is quickly able to send Gokū out of the ring, much to everyone's surprise. As Gokū is banned from using the Kintoun to aid him in avoiding a ring out, Bulma, Oolong, Pu'ar and the rest of the audience are in awe of Gokū avoiding a ring out by using his tail to help him levitate back to the stage. As Gokū returns to the stage, he reveals to a stunned Jackie Chun that he pondered but then opted against using the Kamehameha just like Chun did to avoid his ring out, leading Chun and Gokū to perform a clash of Kamehameha waves. As the dust settles, Chun is shocked to learn that Gokū was able to successfully counter his Kamehameha with one of his own, making Chun decide to change his strategy for combating Gokū.
