The Final Flash and Kamehameha attacks (having been executed by a user who is at SSJ or higher) each present their own strengths and weaknesses.

Final Flash, Vegeta's primary finishing move, has several advantages. The attack is extremely powerful if given adequate charge-up time; as stated by Trunks, the attack is capable of destroying a planet if the user is able to summon enough energy. The attack also has incredible throw distance (as evidenced by when Vegeta attacked Cell the first time, sending the energy beam far into the outer reaches of space), enabling the user to target an enemy thousands of miles away whilst still being effective upon impact. The technique also has several disadvantages. It's greatest drawback lies with the amount of time it takes to charge-up an effective attack; which can be on the order of several minutes. This leaves the user exposed and immobile, thus leaving him vulnerable to attack. In addition, it isn't an add-as-you-go attack, meaning it is only as powerful as the total energy put into it at the time of release. In addition, the target must remain in the same position both during and after the attack is released; this limits is effectiveness to targets who are either extremely bold or the nearly-beaten.

A Kamehameha wave attack has its own advantages. Unlike the Final Flash technique, a Kamehameha attack can be charged-up very quickly; the time required for this is on the order of seconds. While the attack has almost always been executed in a stationary position, it is nonetheless versatile with other techniques; one example of its versatility can be seen when Goku was able to use the Instant Transmission technique whilst charging-up the attack. It's greatest advantage lies in the fact that it is a add-as-you-go attack, meaning that once the attack is released the user can continue to add energy to it to make it more effective; like the Final Flash technique, if enough energy is concentrated into it, it can potentially destroy a planet. Like the Final Flash technique, this attack also has disadvantages. It's greatest drawback lies in the amount of chi required to deliver an effective attack; when attempting to counter another add-as-you-go attack, the user is forced to continually add more energy to the Kamehameha to prevent being overtaken by his adversary's attack. This almost always results in the user being depleted of his energy following the attack, leaving him extremely vulnerable as he is unable to defend himself from any subsequent energy attacks that may come from his enemy. The attack also lacks the throw distance the Final Flash technique possesses, as evidenced when Gohan killed cell; the attack dissipated shortly after leaving Earth's atmosphere.

A question asking what attack is "better" is too ambiguous as it doesn't specify the circumstances at the time the attack is initiated. If a target is stationary and will likely remain so for a long period of time (such as when an enemy has been beaten or nearly-so and needs to be dispatched), the Final Flash technique would seem to be the better choice as it doesn't drain as much chi as the Kamehameha and can be effective at long range; however, if a target is still able to fight or has sent an strong attack toward the user, the Kamehameha would most likely prove more effective.

No Super kamehameha is better because he does it when he is in full power super saiyan(the stage before making ssj2). I don't think kaioken x20 kamehameha will ever compete against a super kamehameha.

Is the final kamehameha stronger than the big bang kamehameha?

Well Vegito used the Final Kamehameha as a Super Saiyan and Gogeta used the Big Bang Kamehameha as a Super Saiyan 4. So judging by the characters that they are used by then the Big Bang Kamehameha wins hands down. Then of course, the Final Kamehameha failed to destroy a weakened Buu but the Big Bang Kamehameha almost destroyed a fully powered Sin Shenron and if the fusion hadn't run out just as the second was about to be fired it would have finished Sin permanantly, something that only the Spirit Bomb with energy from the entire universe managed. Therefore the Big Bang Kamehameha was far more powerful. Actually SSJ4 was used in this therefore powering up the Big Bang Kamehameha SSJ gogeta is known to do it but cannot for some reason the creators didnt add it in Final Kamehameha failed to destroy buu yes and sin shenron is indeed stronger but Gt isn't official so SSJ4 couldn't hardly exist But if they fused against Buu by fusion dance And did the big bang kamehameha It wouldn't destroy buu either but if GT were offical And Vegito was in it and could go ssj4 than there would be a difference Big bang attack is weaker than final flash Kamehameha is powerfull and I belive it was said that The potara fusion was 10x stronger than the fusion dance (I belive so if im wrong correct me) Thus resulting in Final kamehameha With ssj4 Vs Big Bang Kamehameha in ssj4 There wouldn't be much of a power difference but Final Kamehameha has slight more power than big bang kamehameha
