Even though Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero came out a few months ago, all fans of the franchise created by Akira Toriyama were surprised by the new transformation of one of the Warriors of Z and there seem to be a few details behind it. . . .
In the movie, we could see Gohan and Piccolo as the protagonists and the heroes who will save the Earth from the evil Red Patrol organization while they both face Gamma 1 and Gamma 2 to face Cell Max later, but in the middle of the battle, both of them had other abilities.
Goku’s son turned into Gohan the Beast and his master turned into Orange Piccolo, but it seems that Gohan’s appearance should have been something else, as the current appearance of longer hair and red eyes was not the original idea.
During the promotion of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, some of Akira Toriyama’s messages about the film were revealed, and among them, he mentioned the need to give Gohan a new transformation, but his appearance was supposed to be different.
According to Akira Toriyama-sensei, he was going to give him a somewhat intimidating face along with blue skin, very similar to Dragon Ball’s superworld angels such as Whis, but that idea seems to have been abandoned.
