Dragon Ball AF Fanon Wiki

Energy waves (Kikou; Literally meaning "Spirit Blast") are a generic term for numerous techniques in the Dragon Ball franchise. They make their debut with the Kamehameha in "The Kamehameha Wave", the 8th episode of the Dragon Ball anime, which premiered on April 16, 1985. They make their first manga appearance with the same technique in "Kame Kame Kame Kame Kame Chameleon", the 14th chapter of the Dragon Ball manga, issued on January 10, 1986. Such techniques have since made appearances in almost every video game spun off by the series.

In essence, energy waves are a type of technique where their user utilizes an assortment of ki-based waves, cast from (but not limited to) their palms, fingertips, eyes or mouth. The color of the aura they emit varies between users (for example, Kamehamehas launched by various users have ranged in color between blue, red and yellow). The most commonly seen energy waves in the series are the Kamehameha and Continuous Energy Bullets. Some of these waves can also home in on their targets, and with enough energy, their power, speed, force and size can be augmented. These attacks are capable of being improved as their users' concentration becomes more adept or they assume some type of transformation.
