Now an adult, Gohan (Kyle Henry Herbet) has spent a lot of his time avoiding conflict and trying to focus on business and family, but the latest film, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, has decided to give Gohan this to allow back what he does best, and that has nothing to do with his personality as a Saiyan. For context, during the final saga of Dragon Ball Z, Gohan trains with Old Kai (Kent Williams) to unlock a new ability. Saiyans have been proven to channel and waste a tremendous amount of power while transforming into a Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2, or even Super Saiyan 3 form, but Ancient Kai’s technique teaches Gohan To have access to the vastly improved speed and strength of Super Saiyan transformations without unnecessary build-up.
Though Gohan is able to effectively deal with the villainous entity known as Super Buu (Josh Martin) in Dragon Ball Z, he eventually withdraws from the fight to instead focus on his personal life and burgeoning family, which soon sees his combat prowess begin to fade due to his lack of training. However, this is the Dragon Ball universe we’re talking about, and Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero sees the spotlight back on Gohan and Piccolo (Christopher Sabat). This particular film begins with the restored Red Ribbon Army, who have long been villains in the franchise, and decide to take revenge on Piccolo and Gohan, and their plan is to kidnap Gohan’s daughter to lure him into a trap and the unleash havoc from the killer android Cell Max (Dameon Clark).
