Goku's signature attack, the Kamehameha, is one of the most recognizable and well-loved moves in the Dragon Ball franchise. But Goku isn't its only user, and a simple blast isn't its only form. Actually, it's an incredibly versatile move that shows up again and again throughout the Dragon Ball world. 

What are some of the best Kamehamehas in Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Super, and all the rest? One of the most noteworthy ones is the Father-Son Kamehameha, in which Gohan channels his father's energy to help him defeat Perfect Cell. There's also the original Kamehameha, which is the version Master Roshi took 50 years to perfect. Then there's the Final Kamehameha, a combination of Vegeta's Final Flash and Goku's most famous move. 

Which of these Kamehamehas is your favorite?

    Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken Kamehameha

    After combining two his Super Saiyan Blue powers with his Kaioken techniques, Goku is able to create a blast so incredibly strong that it broke the barrier around the arena. What makes this Kamehameha unique is that Goku actually walked inside of the blast in order to wail on his opponent, Hit.

    10x Kamehameha

    During his battle against a Baby Vegeta in his Golden Great Ape form, Goku uses a new version of Kamehameha that his Super Saiyan 4 form allows. While he doesn't do much damage against the Ape, the scene has enough drama that it almost doesn't matter.

    Kaio-ken 20x

    After Frieza has wiped the floor with just about every other opponent, it seems impossible that anyone will be able to defeat him. Goku uses his Kaio-ken technique at 20x power in order to beef up his Kamehameha - and actually do some serious damage against Frieza.

    Goku's First Kamehameha

    While not nearly as powerful as the ones he'd manage later, Goku's first Kamehameha is still among the most important. On his first try, the young boy was able to muster up enough energy to destroy a car.
