The Kamehameha Return is a basic-type Ki Manipulation Technique that is a variation of the original Kamehameha.


The technique involves the process of another Kamehameha being erased by another Kamehameha. The collision of both techniques cancels out both Ki Manipulation Techniques as a result. Gokū is able to instantly fire his own Kamehameha to counter Jackie Chun.[5][6][7][8] The end result is a beam clash between the two energy beams, that results in two blasts of equal power creating an explosion that knocks both users off their feet,[9] or, a battle for supremacy where one Kamehameha entirely overpowers the other.[10]


  • The Kamehameha Return was the first instance of a 'beam clash' within the series, and is to date, the only one officially named.
  • This technique is technically usable in any video game where the player character can consciously use the Kamehameha in response to the opponent's Kamehameha.
