"The Super Kamehameha" (超かめはめ波, Chō Kamehameha) is the one hundred eighty-fifth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.
Muten Rōshi quickly stops Gokū from firing his Super Kamehameha, as it could accidentally kill God as well. Piccolo laughs at Gokū's weakness, and prepares to destroy the entire ring, along with Gokū. With split-second thinking, Kuririn tells Gokū they can revive God with the Dragon Balls, which gives Gokū the reassurance needed to prepare his technique.
Piccolo informs them that he killed Shenron three years ago, and fires his technique. Gokū responds that Shenron was revived, and returns fire with his Super Kamehameha. The gargantuan Kamehameha overwhelms Piccolo's technique and sends it back at him, wounding the demon severely.
- This chapter marks the only named usage of the Super Kamehameha, as Gokū would later go on to use this technique while simply referring to it as a "Kamehameha".
