* Magical version from {{Drowtales}}. Take an ordinary ProjectileSpell, add 1000 years of (mana/aura)growth and experience - [[http://www.drowtales.com/longestwait.php?order=date&id=24 destruction ensues]]. Unfortunately, her targets dodged.

* The TropeCodifier, and first TropeNamer here, is the Kamehameha (literally "Turtle Devastation Wave") used by Goku and others from ''Franchise/DragonBall''. Not that there weren't plenty of cousins around, such as the Gallick (or Garlic) Gun and Final Flash (which takes [practically] forever and a day to charge up and is [literally] about 500 miles wide) used by Vegeta, the Masenko used by Piccolo and Gohan, the Dodonpa used by Tenshinhan and all other Crane School fighters, and numerous unnamed energy blast attacks used by other characters, as well as several variations of the original - Kamehameha from the feet, Super Kamehameha, Warp Kamekameha and Big Bang Kamehameha.\\

Added DiffLines:

** The title character's signature Rasengan ''looks'' like it would be one of these, but the energy ball actually remains in his hand until slammed into a target. But when [[spoiler:his son Boruto]] learns the technique, he is able to fire it off as a projectile...[[AchievementsInIgnorance because he didn't realize the Rasengan wasn't supposed to do that]].


Added DiffLines:

** [[JokeCharacter Don Kanonji]]'s "Kanon ball" is akin to a miniature Hadoken...that travels at ludicrously slow speed. But once it finally hits something, it explodes with surprisingly strong force.

* Ryoga of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' has the depression-powered ''Shishi Hokodan'', and Ranma has the confidence-powered ''Moko Takabisha'', although the strongest version of the former is more like a giant SphereOfDestruction that falls on top of everything. For added fun, they actually look like Hadokens when fired normally. Except in the second NonSerialMovie, in which they are shown more like the Kamehameha.
** This is in fact a Japanese pun. "Ki" (using the same kanji) can mean "feelings".
** Meanwhile, Prince Herb of the Musk Dynasty simply emits massive, unnamed torrents of raw ki from his hands. The final adversary in the series, the Phoenix King Saffron, possesses the ''Tenka Shunmetsu Kokyuudan'' (roughly, "Entire-Empire Instant Annihilation Shot") a giant heat ray capable of vaporizing mountains.

** There's a special ability that increases the power of these kinds of moves called Mega Launcher. The only Pokemon that are capable of having it are Clauncher (a pistol shrimp with an [[{{BFG}} enormous claw]] and [[SuperMode Mega Blastoise]].

* Classic 1st-block ''MagicTheGathering'' combo [[GameBreaker Channel and Fireball]]. 19 Health turned into mana + 1 point of other mana = 20pts of damage directly to your opponent's face. That's one big fireball.
** To add the nail to the coffin, the original combo was Black Lotus, Channel, and Fireball, which was incidentally a first turn (or alternatively, turn zero, as the opponent never gets a turn) OneHitKill. And keep in mind this was in the days before the number of copies of any card was restricted, so you could have a deck that consisted of literally nothing but Black Lotuses, Channels, and Fireballs. Think someone charging up a Kamehameha or Hadouken, and then think of their opponent unleashing a blast of equal or greater power before they get to finish the first syllable. Fun times.
*** Also, later sets of Magic gave us Demonfire and Banefire, cards with similar effects to the classic Fireball. This is of course long after the days of the environment of Channel/Fireball, so obviously they require a much greater investment, so what makes them so special, you ask? They can't be countered or prevented as long as you have no cards left in hand or are dealing five or more damage with them, respectively. What they lack in First Turn Kill comboliciousness they make up for by being nigh unstoppable blasts of destruction.

*** [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=186613 Banefire]] is especially awesome, because it is depicted in the card art as Sarkhan Vol's hands in the Kamehame Hadoken stance, enhanced by magic to look like a dragon's head breathing fire.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' has the Soul Stream spell, which looks near identical to Goku's Kamehameha (though it's fired from a magic staff rather than one's hands). The attack deals heavy damage and looks incredibly powerful, though its long charge-up time and very high FP cost make its use situational at best. [[spoiler:The FinalBoss knows this spell, and ''he'' doesn't have limited FP.]]
