The Turning Kamehameha is a variation of the standard Kamehameha invented by Son Gokū.


The Turning Kamehameha is one of the more unique variations of the Kamehameha technique, and shows Gokū's ingenuity as a fighter. Gokū charges and releases the Kamehameha blast as he normally would, however, instead of letting it fly out and make contact normally, he manipulates the blast by the tail end of it. This causes it to turn, or bend, snaking around as Gokū wills it to strike the opponent from another angle, typically the back.[5][1][2]
