One popular theory that I have noticed going around for quite some time is that Gohan will unlock Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan, or Super Saiyan Blue in the Tournament of Power. It is a nice thought, and would be great to see being a fan of Gohan myself, but it’s NOT going to happen and I have proof!
Now before starting this Article, I want to say this is not going after anyone who thinks that Gohan will achieve Super Saiyan Blue. This is Dragon Ball after all, and anything can happen. I’m saying it’s not going to happen cause of what I’ve seen in the show, and what the writer’s have pointed out to us. So let’s talk about it!
Now, I think Gohan will achieve a new level of power in the Tournament of Power. This is the perfect situation for Gohan to feel backed up against a wall and to feel that need to “let go”. Gohan has always been a unique character, someone you can’t really compare to anyone else even Future Trunks. It has been said many times, that Gohan has unlimited potential to his power, which is something that isn’t true for anyone else. Yes, Goku has shown to have the potential to overcome who, or what he needs to at that time, but that’s not unlimited potential to strength! Ever since he was a kid, Gohan has been able to pass his father’s feats from busting out of a Capsule to help his father, or ascend to Super Saiyan 2 and defeat Cell 1 handed..
Why do I think Gohan will not achieve Super Saiyan Blue in the Tournament and where’s my proof? The biggest, and best proof comes straight from the man, Gohan’s mouth himself when sparring with his father before the Tournament to test his re-awakened power. Goku mentioned to Gohan “your not going Super Saiyan?” and Gohan replied “I want a Form no one has ever seen before, I’m going to aim for a different method then you.” This tells us that Gohan is sticking with this Ultimate/Mystic Form, and wanting to max it out, and have complete control over it.
Knowing that, brings up a question. Why would Gohan, knowing the power of Super Saiyan Blue, or even Super Saiyan God not want to go the same path as his father Goku, and Vegeta? Is it just pride? Does he not want to feel like a “repeat”? I think it’s because there’s a lot more to this Mystic/Ultimate form he obtained from the Elder Kai all the way back in Dragon Ball Z.
Knowing that the Elder Kai was once a reining Supreme Kai, and knowing that Supreme Kai’s are god’s could this Mystic/Ultimate form be an older type of God Ki? In the episode where Piccolo and Gohan are training, Piccolo mentions to Gohan that “You can get much stronger!” usually meaning, we haven’t truly seen what this Mystic/Ultimate form is capable of when Gohan has completely mastered it, and has full control.
These are my reasons why Gohan will not achieve Super Saiyan Blue in the Tournament of Power, and what could possibly happen in Gohan in the Tournament of Power. What are your thoughts? Do you think Gohan will achieve Super Saiyan Blue? Why and how will Gohan achieve Super Saiyan Blue? Or do you think it’s something different? Let’s keep the conversation going by leaving your idea’s and opinions in the comments down below! As always, thanks for reading!
