The Dragon Ball franchise is famous for its explosive attacks that make its battle scenes spectacular, and fans are always looking forward to see how Goku, Vegeta, and the rest of the Z warriors unleash their Super Saiyan abilities against powerful threats to protect the universe.

The official Dragon Ball website recently shared an interview with Dragon Ball Super manga artist Toyotarou, and he shared some interesting facts about the shonen franchise that Akira Toriyama created. Toyotarou has revealed his favorite attack as well as his favorite scene that features the iconic attack.

Toyotarou's favorite attack is the Kamehameha, which is famously used by protagonist Son Goku but has been used by various characters throughout the series.


"If we're talking about Dragon Ball techniques, then it's gotta be 'Kamehameha," Whether it's the name, the pose, or the fact that it's a move passed down by Master Roshi the Turtle Hermit, there's just no technique that stands a chance of topping the Kamehameha. It's an ingenious technique. The way you gather energy and then release it, the basic principle can be seen in all the other techniques. The Kamehameha started it all."

The artist also discussed his favorite scene that features Kamdehameha attack, bringing us back to the iconic scenes from Dragon Ball Z.

"I think that the Kamehameha scene against Vegeta was seriously cool, but the instant Kamehameha against Cell was also pretty cool."

Another scene Toyotarou pointed out is when Goku was trapped beneath the water and was unleashing a Kamehameha unlike anything we've seen before, firing off two energy blasts upward at the alien despot. The iconic attack will most likely show up in the Dragon Ball Super again.

The Dragon Ball Super manga will release Chapter 79 later this month. You can check out all the details we have so far about the upcoming chapter here.
