The Kamehameha Deflection is a Ki Manipulation Technique utilized by Tenshinhan.


The user forms a hand seal, focusing their energy around their body, and, judging the timing of the Kamehameha, the user releases a kiai which deflects the Kamehameha back in the direction of their opponent. Due to the shocking nature of the technique, it includes a surprise factor that catches the opponent off-guard, ensuring the collision of the energy wave.[3][4]


  • In Dragon Ball XenoVerse, one of Tenshinhan's Z-Souls is based off of this ability, complete negating any technique with Kamehameha in the name. In Dragon Ball Fusions, Tenshinhan once against possesses a similar ability, this time named "Kamehameha Block".
  • In the anime, the Grand Kaiōshin was seen performing a similar technique against Majin Boo.
