Are you also among the eager fans who want to know about Gohan new form in Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero? Then you are at the right place! In today’s article on our website, we present to you everything we know about Gohan’s new form in Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero.
Will Gohan Get A New Super Saiyan Form? Everything We Know About Gohan New Form
The new Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie is yet to be released outside Japan. However, fans are already swarming with interesting theories and speculations about Gohan’s abilities in the new movie. Many fans are speculating that Gohan New Form may be another high-level Super Saiyan form. But is that really the case?
As it is revealed, it seems that Gohan’s New Form in Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is way more interesting than just another Super Saiyan form. Yes, you read that right. This movie is about to introduce a totally new form of Gohan which viewers would be surprised to find out. Here’s everything we know about Gohan new form.
The creator of the Dragon Ball Manga and Anime franchise, Akira Toriyama has revealed that the young DBZ fighter’s new form will be a totally unique power in the movie.
According to the makers of the movie, Gohan new form is not like his other Super Saiyan forms.
Instead, Gohan will be seen using the energy which he harnessed deep within himself with years of practice and training. Needless to say, Gohan new form in the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie will be very unique and special- for Gohan as well as for the fans of the Dragon Ball series.
In an interview with the writer of the show Akira Toriyama, Akira revealed much interesting and engaging information about the new Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie. The interview had been translated from Japanese to English by a Twitter user named Todd Blankenship.
“Gohan’s had quite a few transformations in the past, but this time he needed to awaken to a new one,” says Akira Toriyama in the interview. “Gohan has achieved his own unique evolution, based on the sort of awakenings he had as a boy. I’ve even named this transformation ‘Son Gohan Beast’, in the sense that the wild beast within him has awakened.”
When asked about Gohan’s physical change during the transformation, Akira has also talked about some interesting details about it. After all, the transformation visuals of a fighter in Dragon Ball is the most enjoyable part. To explain Gohan’s physical changes during the transformation, Akira says, “I just gave him the usual big upturned hair, which went over surprisingly well. Everyone said ‘it looks so cool!’ which actually made me full humbly grateful.”
If one was to compare Gohan’s powers in the previous series with the new Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie, then the difference is pretty staggering. Gohan’s powers in the movie is somewhere around ten times more than the powers that Gohan has had throughout all the years. Describing Gohan’s major change in this movie, Akira said that he has pretty much “hit the wall” in the character design of Gohan. “Frankly, I’m not sure what sort of design I should use if I ever transform him even further”, says Akira Toriyama.
After the release of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero in Japan, even international fans after getting a glimpse of the new form of Gohan and are astonished by the game-changing power that Gohan is showcasing in the movie.
In Dragon Ball Super, fans saw Son Goku and Vegeta unlocking their super powerful forms, namely the Ultra Instinct (Goku) and the Ultra Ego (Vegeta). But with the focus being brought into Gohan and Piccolo this season, fans are very hyped about Son Gohan’s new “Son Gohan Beast” form.
Yes, Gohan new form in Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is named “Son Gohan Beast” form. But what exactly are the abilities of this form? Let’s take a look at everything we know about Gohan new form: the “Son Gohan Beast” form.
Gohan’s new “Son Gohan Beast” form has apparently made him catapult back to the top rank in the list of most powerful Dragon Ball fighters of all time. In the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie, Gohan and Piccolo will be seen as the main protagonists fighting against a new iteration of the Red Ribbon Army. Creator Akira Toriyama has confirmed that Gohan and Piccolo will be seen fighting against Gamma 1, Gamma 2, and a major mysterious villain.
This mystery villain reportedly has ties to both the Red Ribbon and the Dragon Ball Z fighters, as it confirms. The creator of the Shonen franchise has said that Gohan’s new form will be a new step in moving forward in the future of the Dragon Ball Super Series.
Akira Toriyama has gone through quite the turmoil in designing Gohan’s new form in the season, as he talks about it in the interview. Since Akira wanted to bring a new dimension to Gohan’s character and power development in this movie, Gohan’s new form had to suit Gohan’s usual image that we have known and been familiar with in the previous Dragon Ball series. And creator Akira Toriyama had to keep them in mind while designing Gohan’s new form as well.
“I tried drawing him with a scary face and pale skin, but somehow this didn’t feel like Gohan,” says Toriyama about his experience in designing the all new form of Gohan in the movie. So it seems that Gohan’s new form was set to turn out in a totally different way. “Frankly, I’m not sure what sort of design I should use if I ever transform him even further,” says Toriyama.
In the original Dragon Ball manga series, the Granolah Arc featured Goku and Vegeta being at the front and center position to fight against the criminal organisation, known as Heeters.
In the Granolah Arc, Gohan and Piccolo were seen being on the sidelines. Since we are yet to see what the shonen manga of Dragon Ball Super has in store for the Z fighters, in the meantime we can expect for Orange Piccolo and Son Gohan Beast to make more appearances in the future of the Dragon Ball franchise.
But it is not only Gohan who will be seen in a completely new form in the movie, as it is revealed. Piccolo, the other main part of the movie, is also set to have a stronger and more powerful form in the movie alongside Gohan. Although not much is known about Piccolo’s new form, we have gathered that Piccolo’s new form is the Orange Piccolo form, which is similar to the God-Like Sign, No Ego Zone, and the Ultra Instinct sign.
In short, whatever we will see Gohan and Piccolo fight against in the new Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero series, must be a more dangerous and bigger villain than we have seen in the past.
Son Gohan having a completely unique form of his own other than the Super Saiyan forms was talked about long before the release of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. In the previously released Dragon Ball Super anime, Gohan has expressively talked about his want and strive to have “an ultimate form that no one has ever seen before”.
Much similar to this, in the Dragon Ball Super Manga series, Gohan was seen bringing up to Kefla his goal to evolve as his own person, different from the other Saiyans. Gohan has wanted to evolve stronger as a human than he has wanted to evolve as a Saiyan. Which is why, Son Gohan Beast is a form which is a very special element in Gohan’s storyline as well as the whole Dragon Ball series.
Gohan’s New Form: What are the abilities of the “Son Gohan Beast” form?
From everything we know about Gohan New Form, it is clear that Gohan’s new form is essentially an evolved form of Gohan’s Potential Unleashed State. This new form has stemmed from all of Gohan’s awakenings since the days of his childhood. The “Son Gohan Beast” form is currently Gohan’s strongest known form.
Even before Gohan understood his own potential, his companion, Piccolo knew of the immense potential that Gohan holds. In the promotion of the new Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie, Akira said that Gohan is actually a Saiyan fighter who is stronger than anybody else in the show. But Gohan just did not have any golden opportunities to shine and unfold the true potential of his powers…yet. Gohan’s powers are powerful enough that he can easily defeat a weakened Cell Max with no problem.
Much like his father Goku, Gohan’s most important transformations stemmed from emotional rage, rather than just pure will. In the movie Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, Gohan and Piccolo are both seen to be fighting against Cell Max. During the fight, Cell Max, being the ruthless and dangerous villain he is, attacked Piccolo in such a way that it seemed that he might have taken Piccolo’s life entirely.
When Gohan had to witness his friend Piccolo’s apparent demise, he burst out in rage and anger. With the building up of pure rage in Gohan, he achieved his Son Gohan Beast form – which is the strongest form Gohan has ever been in. This transformation was heavily reminiscent of Gohan’s first Super Saiyan 2 transformation during his fight with the Original Cell in Dragon Ball Z.
In his newly transformed Son Gohan Beast form, Gohan effortlessly withstood every attack of The Cell Max, and brutally retaliated against a full-power punch from the villain.
Not only that, Gohan also managed to completely annihilate his massive energy sphere along with his core with a special beam cannon, all the while when Piccolo was restricting Cell Max’s movement. Overall, the Son Gohan Beast transformation of Gohan is a legendary scene in the Dragon Ball series history.
