Super Dragon Ball implying that Gohan actually possesses a secret power that he doesn’t even know about and that power he shares with Future Trunks. Had Gohan used this forgotten power in the Tournament of Power, he could have won instead of Android 17, or at least he could have become a bigger asset to his team.
Undoubtedly one of the silliest moments in Dragon Ball Z’ happens in the Majin Buu Saga, when Old Kai forces Gohan to sit and watch him perform a strange dance ritual to unlock his true potential. Saiyan young man. After 25 hours, Gohan was able to transform into what is now known as Ultimate Gohan, or Potential Release, one of the most powerful transformations in the series as it harnesses all of a warrior’s latent powers. without putting undue pressure on their bodies. Later, in the Future Trunks Saga in Dragon Ball Super, it is revealed that Future Trunks also undergoes the same ritual to become Supreme Kai’s apprentice, and the procedure also provides another unexpected benefit.
Gohan has the ability to heal through Old Kai rituals
In chapter #24 of Dragon Ball Super, Supreme Kai from the normal timeline learns that his future partner has been performing a ritual dance around Future Trunks for the whole day and explains this means Future Trunks became Supreme Kai’s apprentice. This is important because Supreme Kai’s apprentice gains the power to heal people, as Future Trunks soon shows. Since Gohan also underwent a ritual dance from a Supreme Kai around the same time in DBZ, it’s not hard to assume that he technically must also be an Apprentice Kai and thus possess the ability healing ability.
Healing later becomes an important ability in the Tournament of Power. Vegeta is aware of the fact that since there will be 10 of them competing, they will benefit greatly from Senzu Beans. However, as angel Whis revealed, Senzu Bean broke the rules as it was not considered a natural ability by the opponent like magic, thus leading to disqualification. However, Supreme Kai notes that they have Majin Buu on their team, who has “natural” healing abilities, which needs to be allowed. However, Majin Buu will not participate in the tournament due to his comatose state. Based on the extremely powerful opponents that the Universe 7 team will later face in the Tournament of Power, Gohan’s healing abilities will be extremely useful.
Gohan’s healing power could make a difference in the tournament of power
The only problem with this theory, however, is that, for it to work, the Old Kai and Supreme Kai’s dance ritual must be one and the same, it seems. However, Old Kai also states in chapter #502 of Dragon Ball that he received his magical powers by merging with a witch and as a result only he can perform his ritual. However, it is strange to assume that there will be two different dance rituals of the same length with two different outcomes. It is therefore likely that the Old Kai only obtained the ability to unleash his latent potential from his fusion with the witch and that he incorporated it into the “normal” ritual that the Supreme Kais used with the witches. their apprentices. In short, Gohan should have the ability to heal as Practitioner Kai in Super Dragon Ball but like the original Future Trunks, he is unaware of this amazing secret power.
