Gohan Son is one of the main characters from the Dragonball Z anime and manga.
Son of Goku and Chi-Chi, and a half-Saiyan. At first he was just a little crybaby with hidden strength but under the tutelage of Piccolo and his experiences in battle, he turns into quite an accomplished warrior. However, despite his potential and in noted contrast to most to the cast, he hates violence and would rather be a scholar than a fighter.
In the AWA fics, Gohan is a student at the AWA Academy and is part of Class 3.
In the XP4 fics, Gohan debuted in the XP4 Heroes Coalition - Kick-Off!.
In the TWA fics, Gohan is a member of the Honor Fighting Force.
Gohan is a tall, muscular man with a slicked-back, black spiky hair and dark eyes. He is currently wearing an orange gii over a dark-blue muscle shirt tied by a dark-blue sash around his waist, orange pants and dark-blue boots.
As a child, Gohan is a shy and studious intellectual child who lacks the Saiyan fighting spirit, so he had to utilize his incredible half-breed Saiyan potential and emotional reserves to protect those he loves, becoming one of the most powerful Z Fighters. As an adult, he achieves his dream career of becoming a great scholar.
Being only half-Saiyan, Gohan is unusual in his values and personality compared to most full-Saiyans. These unique values and personality separate him from pure Saiyans; as powerful as he is, he does not like fighting much. However, when he is forced to fight, he shows special interest in protecting his family and friends. Like his father, Gohan has a truly pure and gentle heart, apart from having the typical Saiyan appetite and will eat anything.
Though he claims he does not share the love of fighting Goku has, Gohan does indeed love martial arts and adventures. It is also clearly obvious that he enjoys his superhuman powers, and he greatly enjoys using them to be a superhero, though he dislikes receiving the fame and attention that comes with it and prefers to keep a low profile, which is why he created the Great Saiyaman persona, in order to keep his identity a secret. This is even more evident when he didn't acknowledge Cell's defeat at his hands to the public after Mr. Satan falsely took credibility for it. During the Zen Exhibition Match, he admitted that his Saiyan half was getting excited from the challenge shown by Toppo of Universe 11, demonstrating that even though he despises senseless violence, he actually does enjoy fighting as a sport. It is possible that he prefers not to fight due to the many gruesome and painful fights he experienced in the past, and because of these battles, Gohan has negative emotions associated with fighting.
However, even though he is naturally smart, humble and kind, Gohan himself has been a victim of his own power in the past, whenever Gohan gets a gigantic power boost, he becomes arrogant and cocky, essentially becoming drunk in his power, often acknowledging and even enjoying his superiority over his opponents, as he did when he first became a Super Saiyan 2 against Cell, and later in his life when he achieved his Ultimate form, and fought Super Buu. This fatal flaw of his warrior-personality might be an actual side-effect of his Saiyan-heritage, since Saiyans such as Vegeta, or Nappa, have been known to act similarly when drunk in their own power while fighting. This had to lead him to the brink of defeat on several occasions and has later had to deal with the consequences of his actions, such as the death of his father at the hands of Cell, or Super Buu absorbing him and endangering the entire universe in the process. However, thanks to Piccolo, Gohan works on overcoming this flaw of his, to not let his own superior power blind him on the battlefield ever again.
Besides concerning himself with his family (and his studies), Gohan has a strong attachment with his mentor: his father's former archrival Piccolo. After the death of Goku, Piccolo chose to train Gohan as he sensed the boy's potential power, which would be harnessed to help defend the Earth from the attack of the Saiyans. At first, the relationship with Piccolo is a frightening one, but after just one year, Piccolo admits his change because of the friendship he develops with Gohan and even sacrifices himself to save the boy. Because of this, Piccolo can be considered as a surrogate father for Gohan. Krillin also has an influence on Gohan, as almost an uncle/nephew relationship, mainly because Krillin is Goku's closest friend. While Gohan does care about his mother, he like his father has a fear of her temper to the point in Dragon Ball Super he informs his mother that Goku planned to leave to train under Whis, stating that he had to tell her for his own safety, though fortunately Chi-Chi surprisingly calmed down after Goku left with Whis. However, Gohan will defy his mother if it is important as he tells his mother off after she refuses to let him go to Namek to revive Piccolo using the Namekian Dragon Balls, due to feeling responsible for Piccolo's death at the hands of Nappa.
After the battle with Cell, Gohan gives up martial arts to focus on his studies and only resumed his training at the behest of his little brother Goten. Although he acknowledged he had fallen out of practice and lacked the fighting expertise of his father and Vegeta, Gohan gave all that he had as he fought Majin Buu and was eager to kill Buu for murdering his family and friends. In the years to come, he continued to train on-and-off while having a career and being a family man. He marries Videl, with whom he fell in love despite her being Mr. Satan's daughter, and has a daughter named Pan. Gohan proves to be a loving husband and doting father who takes delight in lavishing his daughter with attention and affection.
Unlike his father, Gohan demonstrates interest in girls such as Videl though he is generally shy when it comes to girls around his own age and is respectful more towards girls and women due to his mother's influence (as Chi-Chi ensured that he and his brother had better manners and education than their father). However he can be at times just as oblivious as his father when it comes to romance as he is good natured personality as shown when he suggested Videl cut her hair for practical reasons though she assumed it was because he preferred girls with short hair and angrily told him off when she learned his true reasons as she herself was slowly developing a crush on him at the time and mistook his obliviousness as a sign that he wasn't interested, though she later followed his advice much to his utter confusion. However he too slowly developed feelings for Videl after spending time with her and was deeply angered when she was brutalized by Spopovich to the point he rage caused him to involuntarily transform into a Super Saiyan causing him to lose his bandana, while doing everything he could to restrain himself from interrupting the match. He was even determined to avenge her by defeating Spopovich in the tournament though this ultimately did not occur and Spopovich was killed by Babidi. He also hid his role in Cell's defeat from her out of respect for her and her father, though later came clean during the conflict with Majin Buu though she herself was actually relieved as she had always secretly questioned the validity of her father's claims and only made her feelings for Gohan stronger as she recognized he was truly an awesome guy as he was humble about his achievement and never sought to profit from his defeat of Cell as he could have easily refuted Mr. Satan's claims had he wanted to by simply defeating him in a show of power.
Gohan's feelings for her where so strong that during the Fusion Saga he angrily opposed his father suggestion of using her to bribe the perverted Old Kai to unlock his potential. In fact his angry reaction to his father's questionable yet well meaning suggestion is not unlike Chi-Chi's temper, indicating that he inherited his temper from her which due to his Saiyan genetics likely contributed to his berserker-like rage as a child (as Saiyans can increase strength through rage). However he is somewhat bashful about his feelings for Videl due to his shyness. In Xenoverse 2, while working as an Instructor with Videl his oblivious personality is still present despite his feelings for her (as they are from a time period after the Kid Buu Saga, though still in the early stages of their relationship) as he obliviously asks the Future Warrior to join them when Videl suggests they go to the movies unaware that she was subtly asking Gohan out on a date causing her to angrily uninvite him stating she and the warrior would go to the movies without him out of frustration (she however enlists the Future Warrior's assistance in learning what Gohan likes in an effort to impress him as her attempts have been frustrated by Gohan's well-meaning but pure-hearted obliviousness). However he and Videl managed to bond and grow closer even fighting crime together as the Saiya Squad with Videl even donning her own alter-ego Great Saiyaman 2 (Great Saiyawoman in the Funimation dub) and even developing a fondness for heroic posing despite finding it ridiculous at first, though in Xenoverse 2 it is implied that she reluctantly agreed to pose at Great Saiyaman's insistence and found that she actually enjoyed it which apparently increased their bond with one another. After his marriage to Videl, he became a devoted husband. He felt terrible when Videl was injured during Bulma's birthday due to his drunken overconfidence causing him to recklessly defect a bullet shot by Mai, though fortunately neither Videl or the unborn Pan were seriously hurt and Dende was on hand to heal the injury. Videl later revealed she was pregnant much to Gohan and their family's joy, with Gohan excited at becoming a father. A equally devoted father, though due to his job and family life he neglected his training which left him unprepared for Frieza's revenge.
After witnessing the death of Piccolo, Videl and Pan at the hands of Frieza before it was undone by Whis' Temporal Do-Over (as it was only undone and is still consider part of the official timeline as Whis' absence in an altered timeline in Xenoverse 2 resulted in Gohan dying with his father and everyone saved by Whis, when Frieza destroyed the Earth after Whis and Beerus had been lured away from Age 779 to Age 852 by Towa's trickery, only for it to be undone by the actions of Whis and the Future Warrior to restore the proper history), Gohan realizes that he must get much stronger in order to protect them. Because of this, he asks Piccolo to train him once again. His devotion to protecting his new family helped him regain his strength and he even returned to fighting crime as Great Saiyaman (though Videl remained retired from crime fighting as she was more devoted to being a supportive wife and mother to their baby girl). However while working as a stunt double for Barry Kahn for the Great Saiyaman film after Mr. Satan got him the job (allowing him to ensure the film portrayed his alter-ego accurately so to protect Great Saiyaman's image as a heroic crime fighter), his identity as Great Saiyaman was discovered by pop idol Cocoa Amaguri (after she overheard Gohan talking about it to Bulma) who blackmailed him to fly her around town and do a rehearsal with her (as she was portraying Great Saiyaman's fictional love interest and damsel in distress in the film) though the rehearsal was something that Barry Kahn forced her to do as he planned to blackmail Gohan (and unbeknownst to Cocoa ruin her career at the same time) though Cocoa tried her best to avoid the planned set up by changing the location of the rehearsal as she had developed a crush on Gohan after recognizing how devoted he was to his wife and daughter, though she innocently kissed him on the lips to thank him for his kindness and words of encouragement, unaware that Barry Kahn had secretly followed them and took a picture though Barry's plan was thwarted by Videl seeing through his show of concern in an attempt to woo her after providing her with the photo as evidence that Gohan was unfaithful (when in reality Cocoa had kissed him without warning). After Barry was possessed by Watagash, he kidnapped Pan causing Gohan as Great Saiyaman to become Super Great Saiyaman (basically Gohan transformed into a Super Saiyan while wearing his Great Saiyaman helmet) and defeat the Possessed Barry (who had turned into a monster due to his evil nature powering up Watagash) to protect his family from the possessed actor, managing to separating Barry from Watagash (who was arrested by Jaco as Watagash was a wanted fugitive), though Barry is later blackmailed by Cocoa to prevent him from revealing Gohan's secret identity to the world out of spite. Both Videl and Pan both had the faith Gohan would protect them showing they both know Gohan would do everything in his power to ensure their safety.
By the time of the Tournament of Power, Gohan has become considerably more powerful than before, although it is unclear as to how much more powerful he has become as Piccolo has stated that Gohan's power is truly bottomless and that he can continue to further strengthen himself to new heights. However, despite reawakening his power, Piccolo points out his tendency to become arrogant and let his guard down could prove disastrous for Team Universe 7 during the tournament so Piccolo tries to discipline Gohan in order to break this dangerous habit. After witnessing his son's newfound power, fighting instincts and keeping in mind his keen intellect, Goku makes the decision to step aside from the role of Team Captain and appoints Gohan as the Captain of Team Universe 7 after their fight, stating Gohan's power is similar to his own and his intelligence makes him ideal for the role. Gohan has also expressed the desire to surpass his father by his own terms and methods, choosing to focus on empowering his natural and unamplified power rather than depend on any Super Saiyan transformations.
Gohan is a member of the Heroes Coalitions and is part of the Super Sixth Squad. He also attends the Vanguard Academy as a student.
XP4 Heroes Coalition - Kick-Off!
In Chapter 5, Gohan, alongside his team - the Super Sixth Squad, are seen chasing after the Citrus City Parkour Thieves somewhere in Citrus City and managed to capture all of them.
Since early childhood, seemingly stemming from his hybrid heritage, Gohan is known to have within him a seemingly limitless dormant power, which at first only revealed itself when he experienced extreme emotional stress, losing most of his cognitive thought in the processs and then his power would drop dramatically lower than before once calming down. The earliest occurrence of this hidden power was as an infant when he about to crash into a tree when his stroller was accidentally released, giving him enough power to plow a hole clean through the trunk. Even by normal Saiyan standards, Gohan's increase of might from fear or anger is exceptionally greater, able to compete against the strongest enemies.
As he got older and continued to train, he gradually became able to access larger portions of his power while retaining conscious control of himself. It was not until he was a young adult that his power was fully awakened and he was able to use and focus it all at his own will. He displays exceptional power at a very young age, even surpassing his father Goku by turning Super Saiyan 2 and defeating Cell at only 9 years old (10 if including the 10 months in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber) Gohan is also the first known Saiyan to ever achieve Super Saiyan 2. Despite his inconsistency in training, Vegeta stated that Gohan's potential exceeded both Goku's and his own, even after they both obtained Super Saiyan Blue.
As a child during the battle against Raditz, when angered, Gohan's power level raises to 710 and then further to 1,307, before falling to 1 after attacking Raditz. Gohan gets more powerful after training for the battle against the Saiyans with Piccolo he is the second strongest Z fighter during the encounter second only to Piccolo himself (stated by Vegeta upon arrival). His power level is 1,083 when confronting Nappa and Vegeta, and it rises up to 2,800 when using his Masenko on Nappa. When Kid Gohan has his potential unlocked by Guru, it is said to rise to a level comparable to Vegeta's at the time of the saiyans first arrival on earth (who had a power level of 18,000). On Namek, when his anger rises during his battles with the different forms of Frieza, he is able to knock the tyrant around several times and even cause him some damage.
Gohan's power grows even higher before and during the Androids/Cell Sagas, as he trains with his father and attains the Super Saiyan form. When watching the battle between Goku and Perfect Cell, Gohan does not understand everyone's awe at their power - as he is easily able to track them and believes that they must be holding back (though Goku was actually at full power). Piccolo and Vegeta are astounded at the power that Gohan possess when he reveals some of it. Gohan eventually attains Super Saiyan 2, at which point he becomes far stronger than any of the other Z Fighters and full power Perfect Cell - he displays this new power by effortlessly killing the Cell Jrs. with a single shot each. His speed has become colossal, easily exceeding the speed of Cell's. Vegeta states that Gohan isn't trying while fighting Cell. During his final beam struggle with Super Perfect Cell, Super Saiyan 2 Gohan loses half of his power due to having been damaged trying to save Vegeta, however even with just half his power Super Saiyan 2 Gohan is still able to defeat Cell in the beam struggle.
By the time of the 25th World Martial Arts Tournament, due to lack of training, Gohan is no longer as strong as he was during the Cell Games but is powerful enough to fight Dabura. It is later said by Dabura that he could easily defeat Gohan if he wanted to, though in turn if Gohan were to get angry and use his true power he would be able to defeat Dabura, as shown when he attacked Buu's cocoon. As a Super Saiyan 2 (with his anger allowing him to use his true power) he was also able hold off Majin Buu for a short time, but was defeated and almost killed. However, after training with the Z Sword, Shin believes that Super Saiyan 2 Gohan will be able to defeat Majin Buu, but Goku is not so sure that he could.
After the Z-Sword is broken, Gohan has his potential unlocked further by the Old Kai gaining the ability to surpass his limits. Trunks states that Ultimate Gohan is equal to Super Saiyan 3 Gotenks, though Goten states Ultimate Gohan is stronger and Trunks takes back what he said and states that Gohan is a little stronger than Gotenks. Gohan is able to defeat Super Buu in his regular state. He is however swiftly defeated when Super Buu absorbs Gotenks and Piccolo (though in the anime he manages to hold his own and is only worn down after some time by Majin Buu's superior combat skill and cunning).
In the God of Destruction Beerus Saga of Dragon Ball Super, Potential Unleashed Gohan was proven nowhere near enough to defeat Beerus, who nonchalantly knocked Gohan aside. By the Golden Frieza Saga, Gohan had slacked off from training for so long that he became unable to utilize his full potential, and found it challenging to even access his Super Saiyan form. Though it is stated by Tagoma that the level of power Gohan possess in his normal form is stronger than Piccolo. Ginyu takes Tagoma's body and is able to unlock his full power than - which is said by Gohan to be equal to Gohan's at the time when he was at his best, Ginyu goes on to claim that compared to him Gohan possess a very low power level. Gohan tries to access his full potential to take on Ginyu but finds that he cannot and thus compensates by transforming into a Super Saiyan, thanks to this tremendous power up he proves to be able to knock Ginyu down with two blows, though the captain gets up again soon after - undamaged by Gohan's attack - to try and continue the battle, only to be stopped by Frieza. Even in his Super Saiyan form, Gohan proved no match for first form Frieza, and was easily defeated by him without even getting out of his chair. However, when Gohan released a huge amount of power as a Super Saiyan due to Piccolo's death, it proved large enough that Goku could sense his ki from Beerus' planet.
In the Universe 6 Saga, while selecting members of Beerus' team for his competition with Champa, Vegeta suggests that they place Gohan in their team - as he possesses potential even higher than Goku and Vegeta themselves, and the rest of the Z Fighters - however Goku declines, saying all Gohan cares about is studying. However - in the anime - unknown to Goku, after Frieza's defeat, Gohan had been training with Piccolo, so that Gohan can get back into shape and Piccolo can get stronger. By the time of Tournament of Destroyers, the two had presumably been training for at least half a year, and Gohan and Piccolo had powered up greatly - with base Gohan equal to the newly empowered Piccolo, who proved strong enough to keep up with final form Frost during the tournament a few days later. When attempting to get Cabba to transform Vegeta tells him he should not have entered the tournament with such a low power level while Vegeta thought Gohan should enter suggesting he is stronger than Cabba who was in turn able to fight on par with base Vegeta.
During the "Future" Trunks Saga, in the anime Piccolo notes that Gohan has given up fighting and now leads a normal life. To which, when Future Trunks encounters Gohan he notes that he does not possess the overwhelming power he had during the Cell Games, stating that he could barely sense his power. During the baseball game between Universe 6 and Universe 7 Gohan participates in the game and manages to catch a godly ki enhanced baseball thrown from a full power Super Saiyan Blue Goku barehanded. The explosion was seen visible from space and leveled the majority of the field yet Gohan emerged from the heart of the explosion and rubble nearly unharmed and actually laughing about almost being vaporized. Impressed, Champa actually gives Gohan a rare compliment, calling him "pretty tough." In the manga, days before Future Trunks leaves to his new timeline he encounters Gohan, who has begun training in the Gravity Chamber in order to get back into fighting shape.
In the anime, while battling Watagash, Gohan was able to completely overwhelm him when he possessed a bank robber. When Watagash possessed Barry Kahn, Gohan was knocked out cold with one blow as he took a blow for Videl and Pan. When Gohan confronted Barry possessed Watagash later Gohan was able to effortlessly dominate him once again after he powered up more using his superior power and training. When Watagash powered up one more time becoming larger than a skyscraper Watagash was far faster the Gohan and was able to smack him around with ease and eventually blasted Gohan into orbit with a massive Eye Beam. After hearing Videl and Pan call out to him Gohan reminds himself he will never lose in front of Pan and Videl and powers up to Super Saiyan and flies back down as Watagash prepares another larger Eye Beam and fires it. Gohan responds with his own version of the Super Kamehameha; the Super Great Saiyaman Beam and effortlessly plows through the beam and nearly kills Watagash. Later, at the request of Chi-Chi and Goten, Gohan proved himself able to fight on par with his father in a sparing match in both base form and as Super Saiyans, the latter of which Gohan was able to land some solid blows.
Initially in the Universe Survival Saga, in the anime although rusty while Gohan fought Lavender, Goku calling it "perfect training for Gohan right now so he can regain his fighting senses". Even blind Gohan uses his sense of hearing and touch to detect Lavender and overwhelm him. After powering up to a Super Saiyan Gohan was able to use his ki as a radar and was able to keep track of Lavender by bouncing his ki of his aura off of him. Even while having poison rotting his body, Super Saiyan Gohan was able to match Lavender in combat, and his Kamehameha matched Lavender's own energy wave until Gohan succumbed to the poison, Gohan eventually managed to catch Lavender off-guard and piledrive him clean through the arena and still stand up afterwards, with Goku noting Gohan was still very strong. Later, Piccolo is using what time they have until the tournament to retrain Gohan and reawaken warriors heart. While initially struggling to keep up with Piccolo even at Super Saiyan 2, Piccolo's guidance ultimately lets Gohan fully reawaken his true power and enter his Potential Unleashed state. Upon doing so, Gohan quickly overwhelms Piccolo without using a Super Saiyan form. To which, even against a swarm of clones, Gohan was able to easily defeat Piccolo's assault, although he still has a tendency to let his guard down, allowing weaker blasts to cause harm. After this, Piccolo believes that Gohan can still become far more powerful.
Soon after, Piccolo acknowledged Gohan's training under him is complete to which Gohan tested his progress against his father. In base form he fought on par with base Goku and was able to easily handle Tien with no issues at all. Once using his non-fully powered Potential Unleashed state, he is able to fight Super Saiyan 2 Goku, though Goku initially had the upper hand, Gohan eventually began to overpower Goku. After going to his full power and asking his father to fight at full power, he briefly manage to fight with Super Saiyan Blue Goku (going to the point where Goku punching Gohan with considerable power in this state didn't even faze the latter), even taking a couple of his punches, with Gohan asking for more, making Goku unleash Kaio-Ken to appeal to his sons request in order to beat his son Gohan, which he promptly did with just a single hit, however after being hit by the Kaio-ken enhanced Goku, Gohan still barely remained conscious and was able to nearly land one more punch before he fell unconscious. Ultimately, it was agreed that with Gohan's growth as a warrior, he was made the official team captain for Team Universe 7. In the manga, Vegeta noted that if Gohan regained his fighting instincts, he will be extremely useful, having high regard in Gohan's full potential. To which, once Vegeta saw Gohan after finishing his reconditioning with Piccolo, Vegeta notes that he is unrecognizable from before, pleased with the results.
During the Tournament of Power, in the manga, Gohan was able to fend off the unified assault from the entire Trio De Dangers with mild difficulty. He also showed deceptive leaping ability against Rozel, able to reach the flying foe from high above to aid Piccolo. In the anime, Gohan, alongside Piccolo, Krillin, Tien Shinhan and Master Roshi, launched an assault that caused little to no damage against Lavender, Botamo, Comfrey, Shosa, and Dercori. He effortlessly deflected Zium's Fire Breath. Base Gohan's punches did no damage to Botamo, however Gohan used this to his advantage as his punches lifted Botamo in the air. Gohan pushed Botamo to the edge, kicked him in the air, and knocked him out of the arena with a Kamehameha. Base Gohan was able to match Obuni in combat, however when Obuni used his secret technique of energy, Gohan was overwhelmed. Gohan decides to turn into his Potential Unleashed state and let himself be hit by Obuni in order to do a counter hit. Using this strategy, Potential Unleashed Gohan was able to once again match Obuni in combat. Gohan was able to outlast Obuni's energy reserves, and when Obuni ran out of energy, Gohan blasted him out of the arena with a Kamehameha. Although Whis stated Gohan would take damage from Obuni's attacks, at the end of the fight, Gohan is shown to be completely fine. Against Jimeze, base Gohan was overwhelmed by Jimeze' professional use of Instant Transmission, although Frieza notes that Gohan would have had no problem against the Yardat if he hadn't stubbornly refused to use Super Saiyan. Base Gohan was able to compete against Final Form Frieza, while previously, Super Saiyan Gohan was no match for First Form Frieza, showing Gohan's increase in power. In his Potential Unleashed state, Gohan was able to push back Final Form Frieza, and briefly hold his own against Golden Frieza. However, it is revealed that Frieza and Gohan were acting so Frost would let his guard down.
Against Saonel and Pirina, Gohan was initially pushed back along with Piccolo but Gohan was able to quickly regain the edge and proved to be able to overwhelm both Saonel and Pirina in his base form by blocking Saonel's best attacks like his Ki Blade with his bare hands and his most powerful ki blast with his Masenko and proved strong enough in his base form to knee drop Pirina's arm off. After the two Universe 6 Namekians fully adjusted to their accumulated power from their entire race, while initially pressured by them, once Gohan entered his Potential Unleashed state, he was able to push back the duo, holding his ground long enough for Piccolo to aid him in eliminating the two foes with a Kamehameha.
Against Universe 3's modified warriors, Potential Unleashed Gohan was able to fend off Bollarator, Koitsukai, and Panchia, gradually adapting to their attack patterns to quickly overwhelm them, forcing them to use their Plan X: merging into Koichiarator. Despite Goku and Vegeta's aid against this new merged foe, Gohan's sheer might was on par it, as neither was able to push back the other. Ultimately, with a timely distraction from Goku and Vegetea, Potential Unleashed Gohan was able to launch a Kamehameha able to overwhelm Koichiarator while also catching Paparoni in the blast. Against Anilaza, even in his Potential Unleashed state, Gohan was overwhelmed by the giant warrior. Together with all the remaining members of Team Universe 7, Gohan engaged Anilaza in a beam struggle, and even then, Anilaza almost overwhelmed Team Universe 7. It was only when Android 17 damaged Anilaza's energy reactor that Gohan and his teammates were able to knock Anilaza out of the arena.
Against Toppo, alongside Android 17, Potential Unleashed Gohan was at a disadvantage against the Pride Trooper, to the point that his Ultimate Kamehameha did no damage to Toppo. Later on, after Android 17 trapped himself and Toppo in an Android Barrier, Gohan was able to almost knock both of the off the arena with an Ultimate Kamehameha, however Toppo was able to free himself. Against Dyspo, Gohan was able to work out the weakness of his Super Maximum Light Speed Mode by watching how he dodged his and Frieza's attacks. After Frieza trapped both Gohan and Dyspo in a Cage of Light, Gohan was capable of matching Dyspo in combat, even overpowering him in the end. However, Frieza ran out of stamina, and Dyspo was once again able to move freely. Despite that, Gohan was fast enough to catch Dyspo in a grip lock, allowing Frieza to knock both of them off the arena. His efforts earn the full recognition and admiration of Beerus with a pleased smiled, who finally refers to Gohan by his given name, rather than just addressing him as Goku's son.
