* 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.

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 "Turtle School Blast" or "Turtle Devastation 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.

* The TropeCodifier, and first TropeNamer here, is the Kamehameha (literally "Turtle Devastation Wave") used by Goku and others from ''Franchise/DragonBall''. Originally a technique developed by Master Roshi, who famously used it to ''blow up the moon''. Although it starts as a tremendous show of power many characters learn how to accomplish it immediately after seeing it.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Paladins}}'', Jenos' ultimate, Through Time and Space, has him channel his energy and then fire a big, cosmic blast of energy similar to a Kamehameha. The blast is so powerful, that it goes through any obstacle in its path and travels through the entire map. This is balanced by an aura showing its trajectory before it fires, giving enemies time to react.

* In the WhateleyUniverse, Chaka has learned a secret Ki attack like this from a superpowered ninja opponent. She fires it from a finger and calls it her [[Film/ChittyChittyBangBang 'Chaka Chaka Bang Bang']].
