There have been countless attacks released by both the heroes and villains of the Dragon Ball franchise, with Goku, Vegeta, and the Z Fighters spending most of their time training to combat threats to the universe. In a recent interview for the Official Dragon Ball Website, the current artist of Dragon Ball Super, Toyotaro, revealed a number of interesting factoids about the Shonen franchise, while also explaining what his favorite attack is and what his favorite scene in the franchise when it comes to said attack, proving that the artist knows his stuff when it comes to the lore of the Saiyans.
As Toyotaro explains, the artist’s favorite attack is the Kamehameha, which is primarily used by Son Goku but has been used by countless characters throughout the franchise, even when it comes to villains such as Cell and Majin Buu:
“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.”

Following this, the Dragon Ball Super artist dove into his favorite scene which employed what might be the most famous attack in all of Dragon Ball, traveling into the past of the Shonen franchise:
“I think that the Kamehameha scene against Vegeta was seriously cool, but the instant Kamehameha against Cell was also pretty cool.”
Toyotaro also takes the opportunity to touch upon a scene during the Frieza Saga in which Goku was trapped beneath the water and was firing off a Kamehameha unlike anything seen before, creating two energy blasts to fire upward at the alien despot. As we’ve seen the technique evolve over time, it’s not crazy to say that we’ll be seeing the attack in the future of Dragon Ball for years to come.
