Energy wave (気功波, Kikō-ha; Literally meaning "Spirit work wave") is a generic term for numerous techniques in the Dragon Ball universe. They make their debut with the Kamehame-Ha in "The Kamehameha Wave", Episode 8 of Dragon Ball They make their first manga appearance with the same technique in "Kame Kame Kame Chameleon", Chapter 14 of Dragon Ball. Such techniques have since made appearances in almost every video game spun off of the series. In the reenactment of the Cell Games, energy waves are referred to as fireballs. In the manga, Son Goku refers to his energy wave as a fireball.

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, feet, nose, fingertips, eyes, body, or mouth. The color of the aura they emit varies between users (for example, Kamehamehas launched by various users have ranged in color from blue to red to yellow). The most commonly seen energy waves in the series are the Kamehamehas 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 upon as their user's concentration becomes more adept or they assume some type of transformation.
