The Limit-Break Kamehameha is a powered-up version of the Super Kamehameha used by Son Gokū as a Super Saiyan God.


As with the other variations of the Kamehameha, the Limit-Break Kamehameha's stance is the same as the others before it. However, while charging the ki for the Kamehameha, the usage of the god ki from the Super Saiyan God causes the ki to glitter, as well as crackle with a yellow electric aura around the sphere and Gokū's palms.


The resulting explosion.

Once released, the blast itself is very wide, proving to be powerful enough to not only split the ocean, but erupt in a pillar that reaches high into the sky once it finally explodes. Unlike the normal Kamehameha, it turns into a large energy sphere instead of a consistent beam. The resulting splitting of the sea caused waves that forced the passengers on Bulma's cruise ship to cling onto something for support.[3]

While utilizing a larger portion of his Super Saiyan God power, the technique increased in size even further, and was strong enough to deflect a multitude of Beerus' own techniques designed to make Gokū fight at full strength and destroy Earth.[4][5] Due to Gokū utilizing this technique while adjusting to his Super Saiyan God power, its true potential remains unknown.[3]

In Other Media[]


The Limit-Break Kamehameha in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, named the God Kamehameha.

The technique itself débuted in the video game Dragon Ball: Battle of Z long before it was featured in the anime. In the video game, Gokū's usage of the technique grants him a red Kamehameha, similarly to the Ten-Fold Kamehameha from Dragon Ball GT.

It would later appear in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot under the name God Kamehameha, usable by Son Gokū after he obtained the Super Saiyan God transformation. Like in Battle of Z, the God Kamehameha is depicted as red in this game, differentiating it from the standard Kamehameha skillset. Gokū is also able to adjust the trajectory, much like the Turning Kamehameha.



Gokū originally charging the Limit-Break Kamehameha.

  • Despite this technique not appearing in Dragon Ball XenoVerse, Super Saiyan God Gokū is capable of using the Kamehameha, despite not showcasing it originally in the movie.
  • While initially shown with lightning crackling around the sphere that Gokū was creating, its second appearance showed Gokū charging the technique in the manner of a regular Kamehameha.
