Each user will fire a blue beam projectile that travels across the screen.
Goku (Super Saiyan)
Goku arguably has the most utility in this move. Goku can fire this move on the ground across the screen, up at a 45 degree angle while on the ground, across the screen in the air, or at a 45 degree angle downwards while in the air. The grounded lateral version is Goku's Z-Assist.
In his base form, Goku's use of this move is nearly identical to his Super Saiyan counterpart. However, it only deals damage in a singular hit. On one hand, this means combos started with this move will scale slightly better, but on the other hand, it makes confirming a vanish off this move much harder.
Krillin can only fire the Kamehameha laterally across the screen, in the air or on the ground. He can hold down the input while airborne or at the start of a jump to delay the attack. The attack will be performed after the button is released, or he touches the ground.
Yamcha can only use this move laterally across the screen while on the ground. It has slightly more start up than other character's versions of the move, but he recovers slightly quicker. He can combo off his Kamehameha by himself in the corner.
Cell is the second character that arguably has the most utility in his Kamehameha. He can fire it laterally on the ground, up at a 45 degree angle, and while in the air he only will fire it downwards at a much more shallow angle than Goku. This means it will cover a much larger portion of the screen.
Kid Buu can only use this move in the air. It will shoot horizontally across the screen. On the ground attempting to perform this move will instead perform Candy Beam. He cannot angle this attack.
This pint sized Goku has arguably one of the better variants of this move, as it has some incredible angles. On the ground, it will be fired at a shallow angle that covers a large portion of the screen. Furthermore, by pressing back or forth, he can either run forward while holding the beam before releasing it, or back up slowly before releasing it. This move can be used in the air, though you cannot hold it. It does however, have an incredible shallow downwards angle similar to Cell's variant, making it one of the better screen coverage tools in the game.
Goku (Ultra Instinct)
In his Ultra Instinct form, Goku leaps forward or backward and fires a Kamehameha at a downward angle.
- While it is common belief that one must say 'Kamehameha' to perform this attack, this is shown to not be true. Yamcha and Krillin, for instance, may simply yell or say something different. It would appear that saying the name of the attack is simply preference.
- It is universally agreed every character that has a beam type attack is better off for it.
- This attack is used by more users than any other special move in the entire game.
- When Kid Buu uses the Kamehameha, it will instead be pink. This could be a reference to the Majin Kamehameha.
