During the climax of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, both Gohan and Piccolo unleash powerful new forms that brings them to the same level of power as Goku and Vegeta. Piccolo’s new “Orange Piccolo” form comes about as a giant transformation helped along with the power of a new wish on the Dragon Balls, and Gohan’s new “Gohan Beast” form is a variant of his Ultimate transformation that fans can’t wait to see more of in action. Because at the end of the day, these new powers make Gohan and Piccolo far more viable for more fights in the future.
It won’t be too much longer until we all get to see these new forms in action either as Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero releases in North America on August 19th. Tickets for the film are now on sale, and Crunchyroll and Sony Pictures Entertainment tease the movie as such, “The Red Ribbon Army was once destroyed by Son Goku. Individuals, who carry on its spirit, have created the ultimate Androids, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2. These two Androids call themselves “Super Heroes”. They start attacking Piccolo and Gohan…What is the New Red Ribbon Army’s objective? In the face of approaching danger, it is time to awaken, Super Hero!”
