So they don’t say that Gohan is useless…
It seems that after the success of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, there has been a lot of debate about Piccolo and Gohan’s transformation, regarding their power level. In fact, we recommend that you read the last chapters of this work, which are available on the online service of MangaPlus by Shueishasince it is possible that don’t want to miss out on the impact this movie will have on the main story after the spoilers in this article. Jumping ahead a bit, we can say that Gohan and Piccolo are in the same league as Goku and Vegeta.
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero changed everything for the two characters. Orange Piccolo and Beast Gohan’s debuts raised their power levels to such an extent that it’s finally only fair to group them in the same league as Goku and Vegeta.. Evidence for this claim is found after the fight with Cell Max when Gohan stated that they may not have won even if Goku and Vegeta had shown up as originally expected.
Yes Gohan, Piccolo and Gamma 2 defeated a villain that could have been too much for Goku and Vegeta, it is logical that the four characters are at a close level, even now from the power they possess with True Ultra Instinct and Ultra Ego. Gohan and Piccolo take new positions in the franchise’s power structure and have the potential to reshape the future of the franchise. Dragon Ball Super showed that they were fundamentally stories about Goku and Vegeta, but Super:Hero ends that tradition in the franchise by giving conditions to expand the approach they can take.
With Gohan and Piccolo becoming much stronger, there is no longer any reason for the two of them to be left out next time. that a new threat arrives at the door of the Z Fighters and opens the door for more secondary characters to become relevant again. That said, his absence in the fights with Black Goku and Broly was convenient and logical, since it made sense since none of the characters had enough power to face them, also that their stories did not intertwine in the same way, but now things are different.
Of course, Dragon Ball can change course later and push Goku and Vegeta ahead of them again (especially now that Black Frieza seems to be the villain of the next story arc), but doing so would undermine everything that Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero achieved with these characters.. If the next anime or movie honors the positive changes made to Gohan and Piccolo, both characters should be equal partners to Goku and Vegeta in the battles to come. In other words, the hopes of the universe should no longer depend on just two people.
Gohan and Piccolo are protagonists again thanks to Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero
After Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, Gohan and Piccolo are as strong as Goku and Vegeta. For years, Goku and Vegeta have stood in a class of their own when it comes to power levels. None of the Z Fighters had been on par with them since the Buu saga when Gohan achieved his ultimate form., until now. This change opens up the possibility of further changes to the main story.
Throughout the Dragon Ball Super anime, both Gohan and Piccolo have been several levels below the top two Z-Fighters. Goku and Vegeta have come so far in the anime that there has always been a feeling that none of their fellow heroes have chance to catch them. Gohan, despite being closer to his place on the power ladder than anyone else, whose new forms only deepened the gap between them and the rest of the others. As for Piccolo, he wasn’t even in the same class as Android 17 or Gohan, let alone Goku and Vegeta. Now all this has changed with the arrival of Gohan Beast and Orange Piccolo..
