The movie Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is just being released worldwide in different countries outside of Japan. 

So the enthusiasm surrounding Gohan Beast Form is completely understandable. Many are speculating that Gohan’s Beast form may just be another upgrade of the Super Saiyan mode. But is it actually?

As we have come to find out, Gohan’s New beast form in the movie is actually very different and more interesting than just an upgraded Super Saiyan form. 

Yes, that’s right. Gohan’s Beast form is something entirely different from a Super Saiyan form, and the secrets behind this form are going to shock you, for sure. So here is everything we know about Gohan’s New form. 

Akira Toriyama, the creator of the Dragon Ball franchise, has revealed to the fans that Gohan’s New form is going to be a completely new addition to the Dragon Ball Series. 

According to the creators of the series, Gohan’s New Beast form actually stems from the energy which he harnessed deep within himself from all the years of dedicated hard work and practice. 

Unlike just a Saiyan upgrade, unlocking this ability of Gohan is more of personal growth of his abilities and mindset rather than anything else. 

According to an interview with Akira Toriyama in Japan, the creator has revealed many surprising facts about Gohan’s Beast form. Here is a quote from the creator where he spoke about Dragon Ball Gohan’s New beast form. 

 “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.”

Akira also spoke about Gohan’s design and physical changes during the transformation to his newest Beast form. “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,” said the creator.

Given everything we know about Gohan’s Beast form, we can tell that his new form is an evolved state of Gohan’s potential unleashed state. 

The Beast form is not just an upgrade of his physical prowess, but also personal growth, since this surge in Gohan’s abilities stemmed from all the inner awakenings of Gohan since the earliest days of his childhood. 

The age-long training that Gohan has been doing in order to become his best self and his own personal drive to become stronger and better is what created this Beast Form.

The “Son Gohan Beast Mode” is currently Gohan’s strongest known form ever. Gohan has shown incredible potential from the beginning, and even his friend Piccolo knew of his intense potential before Gohan himself ever knew it. 

According to the creator Akira Toriyama himself, Gohan is actually the strongest Saiyan among all the Saiyans in the show. Before the timeline of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, Gohan just did not find an opportunity to grow. 

Gohan bears a lot of similarities with his father Goku when it comes to strength upgrades. Like Goku, Gohan also undergoes important transformations in a moment of protectiveness towards his loved ones and a sense of needing to become stronger to protect the world.

In the movie, we see Gohan and Piccolo fighting against the main antagonist of the show AKA Cell Max. Being the merciless and dreadful villain, Cell Max ruthlessly attacks Piccolo and for a moment, it seemed that Cell Max may have actually taken Piccolo’s life. In a state of pure shock and horror like this, Gohan completely bursts out in anger. 

And the rage that built up within Gohan, created a surge of power in Gohan which helped him transform into a never before seen form that shocked everyone. This form is known as the Son Gohan Beast form, aka Gohan’s newest and strongest form ever known. 

With this surge in power that stemmed from pure anger and rage towards Cell Max, Gohan became practically invincible. 

Gohan steadily withstood every blow of Cell Max, and also annihilated his massive energy sphere along with his core with a special beam cannon, all the while when Piccolo was restricting Cell Max’s movement.

Needless to say, this moment was absolutely thrilling to experience in the movie for all the fans and it brought a new dimension to our idea of Gohan’s true power. 

Beast Gohan Vs Goku: Is Gohan Beast Form Stronger Than Ultra Instinct Goku?

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero has just passed a glimpse of Gohan’s new form. Though Gohan turned the tables with his newly found abilities against Cell Max, the true potential of his form is still unknown. 

However, if we compare Gohan Beast Form with Goku’s Ultra Instinct, the latter may have a slight edge. 

Hands down!! Goku is the main protagonist of the Dragon Ball universe. So, it’s pretty obvious that he will be at the apex of the power stair. Moreover, as we saw in the movie, Goku is training on Beerus’ planet. So, it will give him an upper hand against Gohan.

However, if Gohan takes his training seriously and polishes his abilities, he will no doubt surpass Goku. As of now, we can assume Goku as the winner as we have not yet witnessed the full potential of Gohan Beast form.
