super saiyan3 Goku using the true kamehameha at Vegeta.

True Kamehameha (本場のかめはめ波; Honba no Kamehameha; True Turtle Destruction Wave) is a more powerful version of the Super Kamehameha technique used by Goku. It is featured as his Ultimate Blast in his Super Saiyan 3 form in the Dragon Ball: Raging Blast series. First, Goku says, "Get ready for the real deal!" as he draws his hands to his right side. Then, he prepares the Super Kamehameha, but charges his Super Saiyan 3 energy within it, making it brighter and more powerful. Finally, Goku shouts, "Kamehameha!" and fires the attack against the opponent, inflicting a massive amount of damage. Only Steve and Goku know this version of the super kamehameha. Due to his mastery of the kamehameha wave Steve`s version is much more powerful and costs much less energy.

Goku used this attack against Kid Buu. When Kid Buu fired a Super Kamehameha at Goku, he blocked it and fired the True Kamehameha, Kid Buu tried to return it but lost his right hand and left arm. Steve first uses it on Baby vegeta to counter his super galick gun before overpowering it and blasting Baby vegeta through the ground inflicting a massive amount of damage but he recovered and continoued the battle. Steve again uses this move during his battle against super hatchiyack but he blocked it and continoued the battle. In Dragonball Z a new beginning Steve uses this technique several times during his battle against kidbuu with each time permanantly injuring the majin. The last time this technique is seen during Dragonball Z a new beginning is during Steve`s battle against Super janemba inflicting a massive amount of damage. Steve uses this technique many times in the dragonball GT a new beginning storyline and in the movies during all of his battles as a super saiyan 3.


  • In Raging Blast 2, Goku does it more like Master Roshi's Original Kamehameha.
  • The True Kamehameha could be seen as a counterpart to Super Saiyan 3 Vegeta's Ultimate Blast, Crimson Galick Gun, in Dragon Ball: Raging Blast
  • In Dragonball Z a new beginning Steve`s True kamehameha appears to be even more powerful than Goku`s due to Steve mastering the kamehameha making it even more powerful.
