* WorldOfWarcraft's most recent expansion, Mists of Pandaria, features the Monk class that uses Chi to do all sorts of mystical things. One talent they can take in the level 30 tier is called "Chi Blast" and for all intents and purposes, is a Kamehameha, that can heal allies as well as deal damage. Some of the character casting animations are reminiscent of the standard stance for these kinds of techniques, though only the Monk class is using chi.

In the introduction to the manga ''Manga/DragonBall'', creator Akira Toriyama said that he named Goku's energy attack after Kamehameha I (King of Hawaii) after visiting Hawaii on vacation and seeing a statue of the king, though in-universe, Kamehameha translates in Japanese as "Destroyer Wave". Meanwhile, the Hadouken (Surge Fist/Wave Motion Fist) was inspired by the iconic Hadouhou of ''Anime/SpaceBattleshipYamato'', or, as it's translated, the WaveMotionGun.

* From ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'': When Jackie is empowered by an ancient symbol from the Lotus temple, he gains the abilitie to use various KiAttacks. Playing with this trope, he does the standard Kamehame Hadoken pose, but instead launches a ''tornado''. In a later episode, Jackie and Jade unwittingly uncover a secret order of Druid-like people called the Magisters. They are capable of firing off this kind of energy attack when they [[CallingYourAttack say "Ex Metu Vires!"]], Latin for "power from fear".

* ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' has the Athena Exclamation, which has three Gold Saints doing this move together. Appropriately, it's known as the most powerful technique available to Saints, and a DangerousForbiddenTechnique both because it can cause extreme devastation as well as because it's considered dishonorable - due to it involving THREE Saints united against a single enemy.

** ''Anime/SaintSeiyaOmega'' has Orion Eden's ''Orion Extermination'' technique, in which Eden summons a thunderbolt that hits his hands, whose energy he gathers and then unleashes it in a huge blast of Cosmo from his hands together. The end result looks a lot like Vegeta's Final Flash.

* In the ''VideoGame/ToTheMoon'' series, Dr. Watts likes to have fun with the memory cores, and throw them around while screaming "KAAAAAMEEEEEHAAAAAMEEEEE!", "HADOKEN!" or a combination of the two. The more professional Dr. Rosalene is not amused.

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XC6I8iPiHT8 Pistol Shrimp's]] claw evolved to snap shut so quickly that it produces a flash of light and blast of sound reaching 218 decibels, louder than a gunshot. It does this by the claw's snapping creating a low pressure bubble, which then collapses, with the sound created by its collapse. The light? That would be the heat created by its collapse. This enables the shrimp to both stun and [[InstantRoast roast]] its prey in one shot.

While the temperature at that one, tiny point is indeed comparable to the surface of the sun, the overall amount of thermal energy is actually pretty negligible.[[/note]]

*** ''The Dodon Ray'' created to rival the Kamehameha by [[TheRival Crane Hermit]] focusing a more precise, buring beam. After {{Cyborg}} Tao's super Dodon Ray fails to even singe Tien, this attack is never seen again.

** Parodied with the Happo Fire-Burst, the series' first touching upon this trope. Initially believed to be a powerful destructive ki attack, it's revealed at the story's climax that it's actually nothing more than Happosai lobbing around homemade bombs. Weirdly, though, they're still extremely powerful attacks.

*** Vegeta's ''Big Bang Attack'' is second only to the Kamehameha in popularity. Operating and looking similar to a Hadoken, the BBA blows almost anyting in Vegeta's version vicinity the fuck away. ''The Big Bang Attack'' is strong enough to make Full Power Perfect Cell, lost his ground when Vegeta fires one [[ConvenientlyTimedAttackFromBehind at his back]] during his BeamOWar with Gohan.

* Both Kenny Omega and Player Uno have been known to use the Hadoken - Omega's requires a few moments of concentration but is most always successful, and Uno's is rather instant but is regularly blocked by his opponent raising their forearms. Used once against his own partner Player Dos (then known as Stupified) to which Stup. complained against his use of superpowers.

The [[Franchise/DragonBall Kamehame]] [[Franchise/StreetFighter Hadoken]] is a [[KiAttacks Ki Attack]] in the form of a burst of [[PureEnergy weaponized ki]], shot from the cupped hands of the main character after bringing his/her hands forward from behind their back or aside their hip, and varying greatly in size and intensity; from the "normal", utility EnergyBall attack (as it is with Hadoken) to a devastating beam worthy of a LimitBreak or FinishingMove (as it is with Kamehameha).

Contrast with HandBlast, where the attack is not tied to the attacker's [[KiAttacks Ki]] LifeEnergy or {{Mana}}. Depending on perception, both could be delivered by PowerPalms.
