Just How Powerful Is Gohan’s New Super Saiyan Form in Dragon Ball Super?

Gohan Beast – There’s a good reason why superhero films are so popular worldwide. It’s a good time, and Piccolo and Gohan, not Goku and Vegeta, receive the spotlight. And it’s in this film that Gohan’s new form first appears!

From the beginning of Dragon Ball Z, it was implied that Gohan was the strongest Saiyan in the series due to his immense latent potential. And it was confirmed when, during the Cell Games arc, Gohan unlocked the Super Saiyan 2 transformation, making him the first Saiyan ever to do so and formally surpassing his father, Goku. That, however, only persisted for a short time.

We assumed he had reached his full potential after his “Ultimate Gohan” transformation in the Majin Buu Saga, but we were incorrect. Gohan’s true strength was fully displayed in the latest DBS: Super Hero film, as he used every ounce of his latent potential. Gohan’s new appearance is quite remarkable.

Can You Guess Gohan’s New Supersuit Name?

Gohan’s progress stalled during the Cell Games storyline because, after the time jumps, he stopped prioritizing his training in favor of his academics. There was a ceiling on how tall he could become.

Next, the Majin Buu saga occurred, during which Elder Kai unleashed Gohan’s potential, resulting in the “Potential Unleashed State,” or “Ultimate Gohan” form. He was unstoppable at this level of strength, easily defeating even Super Saiyan 3 Gotenks and other formidable foes like Majin Buu.

And in his “Ultimate Gohan” state, he has the potential to outclass even Goku’s Super Saiyan 3 strength. He made his initial encounter with Beerus, the God of Destruction, in Dragon Ball Super. Not even Super Saiyan 3 Goku managed that throughout their battle. Even though Beerus immediately defeated Gohan, the fact that he ever managed to land an assault on him is impressive.

Gohan faced Goku head-to-head as a Super Saiyan Blue after he had trained and regained control over the transformation, but he was defeated by Goku’s Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken form. This should convince you that Gohan is one of the strongest creatures in the world and a beast even among Saiyans.

Until now, we’ve been calling “Ultimate Gohan” “Final Gohan,” as if his current strength was its zenith. However, we now know that to be false. Now that he’s broken through to a new plateau, Gohan has undergone yet another metamorphosis. Gohan’s new form, “gohan beast,” accurately describes his ferocious appearance.

How powerful is Gohan?

Gohan’s Ultra Instinct transformation looks a lot like Goku’s regular form. His hair goes through a similar transition to his SSJ2 form, becoming longer and spikier, but it becomes a pale grey color, and his eyebrows become white. The whites of his eyes become crimson, and the pupils of his eyes become black.

His aura, of course, reflects his newfound might. Gohan’s new appearance has a bluish-white outer aura with magenta lightning and a reddish-magenta inner aura. According to Akira Toriyama, the new form of Gohan is dubbed “gohan beast” because a beast is unleashed inside Gohan.

Is the Gohan Beast Powerful?

If you’ve seen the film, you know Gohan’s new form got little screen time. There was little time for him to show off his increased prowess in battle.

One thing, though, is quite evident. Gohan’s Dragon Ball Super form is unparalleled by almost all other characters. As I indicated before, Gohan could compete with Goku’s Super Saiyan Blue form when he reached his “Ultimate Gohan” form in Dragon Ball Super. But now, he has progressed beyond that point. Even in his Super Saiyan Blue state, Goku probably won’t be able to compete with gohan beast. That’s how much muscle he’s gained!

Gohan’s chances against Goku and Vegeta in their Ultra Instinct and Ultra Ego forms are unknown, but it’s safe to assume he’ll give them a good fight. Although Gohan is a genius, he is not what you would call a warrior; thus, Goku and Vegeta have a better chance of winning.

Is Beerus Weaker Than Gohan Beast?

By no means! In no way, shape, or form! Akira Toriyama would never put forward a figure that poses a danger to the God of Destruction. That would end the Dragon Ball franchise as we know it. So, even if Gohan, Goku, and Vegeta reach their full potential, they will still be far weaker than the God of Destruction.


How has Gohan evolved, exactly?

That’s a perplexing question. Gohan’s new form has only appeared in one film, a fight against Cell Max. The formidable Cell Max challenged even Gohan in his “Ultimate form.” We can only speculate what would have occurred if Cell Max had been able to realize his “Perfect form.”

Since Gohan hadn’t trained in a long time, his combat instincts could have been better, so he was having trouble. The result may have been different if he were at his prime performance level. gohan beast strength can only be estimated based on Orange Piccolo and Cell Max. To provide a more definitive response, we must wait and watch. 

On the other hand, the gohan beast could hold his own against Ultra Instinct Goku, albeit not against Perfect Ultra Instinct. Ultimate Gohan has shown capable of holding his own against Super Saiyan God Goku; therefore, this new form should be just as powerful as Ultra Instinct Goku.

Can Black Frieza be defeated by Gohan the Beast?

The Black Frieza form that Frieza assumes and Gohan’s Beast form are recent developments. In the same way that Black Frieza only appeared for a few panels in Chapter 87, Gohan’s new form only appeared for a few minutes in the film. There’s no telling what these two people can do now. There’s only one way to determine which of these two heavy hitters is superior: wait and see. 

When compared to Broly, is Gohan Beast stronger?

It is not. You can see that Broly, when in his Full Powered Super Saiyan condition, can compete with SSB Gogeta. I guess that Broly, in his super-charged form, will be more than a match for gohan beast.

Gohan, though, will only go down with a fight. But the longer it goes on, the stronger Broly will seem. And now that Broly is on Beerus’ planet, practicing with Goku and Vegeta under Whis’s tutelage, I do not doubt that he will grow into a more formidable character.


This is the last sentence of the article! Although Gohan’s new appearance shocked viewers throughout the globe, it eventually proved that he is among the strongest characters in the franchise. If he’d inherited his father’s training hunger, he’d be much superior to any Saiyan shown in the show by now.

I also hope that now that Gohan is back in the spotlight, Akira Toriyama doesn’t lose sight of him in the subsequent plot arcs. He may make Gohan study and work as much as he likes, but he should also make sure that Gohan continues to train, learns to control his gohan beast form, and uses it to fight future arc’s enemies.
