The last set of screenshots for Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot showed off Goku, Freeza, Cell, and the Dragon Balls. Today, though, Potential Unleashed Gohan (Ultimate Gohan) takes the spotlight. The character now has two new screenshots to his name.


Ultimate Gohan is the second most powerful character of the Dragon Ball Z saga, only coming second to Vegito. This version of Gohan only fell in the Buu Saga because he let Super Buu's absorption of Piccolo and Goten (his mentor and little brother) get under his skin. However, if Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot happens to surprise fans by exploring the movies of the series, Gohan's ranking could change a bit.



The first screenshot depicts Gohan knocking Super Buu away with a flying kick. Considering Super Buu isn’t wearing the Metamoran vest he obtains from absorbing Gotenks, this screenshot takes place at the beginning of Ultimate Gohan and Super Buu’s fight. In other words, this visual shows the part of the battle that sees Ultimate Gohan in full control of things. A hitmarker takes up most of the scene, meaning the shot should also be actual gameplay and not a cutscene.


In the second screenshot, Ultimate Gohan flexes his new mystically acquired ki. The Potential Unleashed transformation takes all of the hidden power within Gohan and brings it to the surface for him to use in full. In this state, Gohan retains all the intensity from his Super Saiyan 2 transformation and the general look of his base form (the only significant difference being the style of his hair). His aura keeps its original clear tone as well. The transformation makes all of Gohan's previous Super Saiyan transformations irrelevant and even pushes the character beyond that of a Super Saiyan 3. It is, in essence, all of the benefits of a Super Saiyan transformation (power boosting) with none of the weaknesses (bodily strain).





How much a player will be able to use Potential Unleashed Gohan is up in the airDragon Ball Z: Kakarot will be featuring side quests, though, so its possible fans will be able to spend more time with the character than the anime or manga did. Players looking forward to playing the game may want to consider taking advantage of the pre-order Black Friday deal it currently has going for it.
