1. King who made Hawaii a kingdom
2. Part of the Pacific Ocean to the West of Hawaii, named by Japan, unrelated to the ruler. The name roughly translates to "wave that winds up with the turtles"(directly "turtle contact wave") because the area was known for its turtles. So, any turtles in the area will be hit by any waves that comes trough. It definitely does not mean "big turtle wave"
3. Energy attack in Akira Toriyama`s manga/anime DragonBall. The "Kamehameha Wave" is noted for its intense power, so it is a very good name for an extremely powerful.
1. There were four Kamehamehas before they lost power
2. I flew over the Kamehameha Sea on the way to Japan
3. Last week`s Kamehameha Wave wiped out a small beach Village called Kakaho
3. Idiot: Hey, kid. You`re into the DragonBall Z stuff. Yeah, I saw it a little yesterday, and I was wondering if could show me how to do that Kamahamba thing.

Kamehameha translated literally from phonetic Japanese to English means "Turtle Destruction Wave".
Kame (turtle) Hameha (destruction wave/blast)

This attack was created by Master Roshi during his material arts training. The Kamehameha wave sacrifices attack preparedness and speed in order to cause massive damage.

Variations:

Instant Kamehameha: Seen only once in the Cell Games Saga, while Goku is fighting Complete Cell, he is losing energy rapidly and pushes his remaining energy into one wave, at first it seems like he is going to destroy the planet and take Cell with him, however at the last minute he uses Instant Transmission (the technique of forming your physical body into mass a light and traveling to a location of somebody's Ki to teleport directly in front of cell, thus canceling out Kamehameha's low rate of speed, and the time it takes to build up the attack

Big Bang Kamehameha: Gogeta's take on the Kamehameha and the Big Bang Attack, derived from Goku and Vegeta receptively.

In the first season, after Goku gets back from his training with North Kai, he uses the 4x Kaioken technique to increase the power of his wave, at the point where Vegeta tries to destroy the planet using his Galick Gun (a technique similar too, and is presumably as powerful if not moreso than a Kamehameha, this is hinted at because it takes a long time to gather the energy to fire this attack).
The Kamehameha wave was created by Master Roshi, a material arts trainer from the fictional anime series Dragonball.

Kamehameha, or "Turtle Shockwave" In japanese, is another name for the energy blast created in the anime/manga Dragon Ball.
It is used throughout the whole entire series, and the 2 series, Dragon Ball Z And GT after it.

Created by Master Roshi, it took 50 years to master and Goku learned it by just watching Master Roshi perform it for the Ox King to save his village from a fire.

In order, these are the people who know how to use the Kamehameha: Master Roshi, Goku, Yamcha, Krillin, Tien,Gohan,Cell, and Gotenks (Including Trunks and Goten fused).

How to Perform: 1. Stretch arms straight out
2. Put bottom wrists together vertically with both thumbs facing the same direction (left or right doesnt matter)
3.Hold position and pull hands to the side with both palms facing the side
4.Concentrate Chi or Ki energy into the ball between your hands
5.Once the ball is of sufficient size to the user release
(IMPORTANT) You must shout Ka me ha me once all through the steps, and once your read to release face palms toward enemy and shout HA after your first line is done.
Goku used Kaioken to triple his Kamehameha attack against Vegeta in their first battle. When released Vegeta shot his Galatic Cannon and the two powers collided in an Epic explosive energy battle ending in Goku's Favor.

(Kamehameha Steps) Notice in the Kamehameha steps that there are only 5 Steps to follow. And the Kamehameha has 5 syllabus lol Ka-Me-Ha-Me-Ha
remember to stretch the syllable like Kaaa-Mee-Haaa-Mee-Haaa so you can have plenty of time to charge a full blast, or shoot out a quick one.

Master Roshi Invented the Kamehameha or "Turtle Shock Wave" to defeat his opponents and gain massive power, although now dwarfed by Goku and his friends.

The "Turtle Wave" beam used by Son Goku in DragonBall Z to blow up baddies. In order to use it, one must take a constipated position, cup the hands while slowly screaming "KAMEHAMEHA". The process may take 3 DragonBall Z episodes.

During sex, it's when you're about to climax, you pull out, place the heels of your hands around your penis, and shout Kame...Hame..., then all at once you shove your penis(with your hands still around it) inside of your partner, then proceed to shout HA!!! as you release your energy wave in her.
Zane knew Zoe was a huge DBZ freak so he decided to show her the good ol' Kamehameha
