His character allowed him to resonate with audiences. Many of those moments are what led Gohan to become many viewers favorite character in the franchise. But what are Gohan’s 10 greatest moments? Which Moment stands tall above the rest?
Wiil, in this post, we will go over Gohan’s 10 greatest moments Dragon Ball which moments Stand Tall Above the Rest.
List Of Gohan Greatest Moments In Dragon Ball
10. Gohan attacks Raditz
The first moment on this list revolves shortly after Gohan was first introduced in the story. Kid Gohan gave us a real glimpse of his hidden power after being abducted by his uncle Raditz. Goku and Piccolo battle the evil Saiyan to defeat Raditz and free Gohan. However, as Raditz had Piccolo and Goku defeated, the cries of agony from Gohan’s father triggered Kid Gohan to fly into a burst of Rage. That moment Kid Gohan breaks Raditz ship and then head-butting him with a power level greater than all three Warriors.
That attack weakens Raditz enough to make it possible for Piccolo to defeated Raditz while Goku sacrifices his life. So Piccolo finally got his revenge. This was a great glimpse into things to come for Gohan and his incredible dormant Power.
9 Gohan attacks Frieza
The next moment on this list is similar to the first. This moment once again shows off Gohan’s hidden power during the conflict on Namek. Gohan Vegeta and Krillin found themselves face-to-face with Frieza. Frieza the dreaded space Tyrant whose power was far above their own. After transforming into his second form Frieza had everyone Frozen with fear.

However, that’s when he attacked ramming his horn right through Krillin. Then after playing a little game of rodeo threw him into the water below. This is what led Gohan to snap as Frieza blocked his path and he couldn’t get to Krillin. So, once again Gohan’s hidden power was Unleashed eclipsing even Frieza’s power level of over 1 million and beating him down. However, it ultimately didn’t accomplish much aside from nearly getting Vegeta a heart attack when he thought that Gohan was next in line to become a Super Saiyan.
So, shortly after this Gohan once again attack Frieza in his third form, which I’m also going to include here. As Frieza was torturing Piccolo with an array of ki blast. Gohan once again snapped hitting Frieza with another massive blast. It took what seemed to be the full power of 3rd from Frieza to break free. But that did not stop Frieza from transforming into his final form.
Although Gohan may not have defeated Frieza because is plot armor can only be pierced by Goku. Gohan still showed that he could be a great asset to Earth’s forces in the future.
8. Gohan defeats Vegeta
Next up on this list is the climax of the fight against Vegeta in the Saiyan Saga Arc. After a brutal fight between Goku and Vegeta with some epic moments along the way. Vegeta was able to win by transforming into an Azzaro. However, shortly after this Gohan Krillin and Yagarobi were able to cut off Vegeta’s tail and divert him back to his normal form.
Vegeta Vs Gohan Saiyan Saga
Vegeta was still strong and Gohan had to fight him one-on-one while Krillin readies the Spirit Bomb. But even that move was still not enough to defeat Vegeta. This is when Gohan looked up at the false moon that Vegeta had created and transformed into a great ape himself. Gohan did what any good Kaiju would do in the situation.
He decided to destroy everything in sight. Eventually, he turned his sights to Vegeta. Thankfully for the same Prince Vegeta was smart enough to cut off Gohan’s tail. However, he still wasn’t that smart because Gohan fell right on top of him smashing him into the ground and defeating Vegeta once and for all until the next Arc.
7. Gohan’s first Kamehameha
Now, this was always one of my favorite moments. After Gohan transforms into a Super Saiyan 2 against Cell. Gohan’s power significantly overwhelming the Bio-Android Cell. This cause Cell to act out of desperation flying into the sky and launching a massive Kamehameha with the intent of destroying the planet. Gohan, however, responded with one of the most epic Kamehameha in the franchise.
Gohan’s Super Kamehameha vs Cell
Gohan Calmly charging it up while his hands were down and then firing it right at Cell with a blast so powerful it consumes Cell body. This was Gohan’s first Kamehameha that he pulled off effortlessly and demonstrated how massive his power had become. Of course, Cell would survive this attack, but I had a feeling that would be returning to this fight soon enough.
6. The family Kamehameha
So on this list, I decided to include moments from the Dragon Ball Z movies as well. They may not be a part of the main continuity, however, there was still some pretty awesome moments for Gohan that took place during them. Plus we all know that if Toriyama sends an interview tomorrow that all the movies are Cannon. It wouldn’t really make much of a difference, although there would be two Broly’s.
Anyway, speaking of Broly the next moment on this list takes place during Broly second coming in this movie. Gohan was the main protagonist and after Broly woke from his Slumber in the ice like Captain America before him and Gohan battled. This escalated when Broly transforms into his Legendary Super Saiyan form and Gohan went Super Saiyan 2. Yes, it was Super Saiyan 2.
There’s plenty of stuff that shown this in the past, although I’m sure that people will still debate about it in the comments anyway. However, Gohan was still at a disadvantage. Eventually, Goten and Trunks were out looking for the Dragon Balls when they ran into Broly. While on the verge of being defeated that was until Goten wished his father Goku was there.
Father and Sons Kamehameha
So, Goten wish was granted and at that point, Goku appeared behind them and the father and sons fired a Kamehameha together. This resulted in an awesome ki clash. However, finally, after some interference by bass Trunk, the family was able to launch Broly into the sun obliterated him.
Wait a second…. base Trunks! how does that even make sense? Also is Goku’s Spirit there or was he just wish back temporarily? If so why didn’t we see Shenron? Oh well whatever, either way, this was an Awesome Moment for Gohan as well as for Goten and Goku. They got rid of Broly so that is a thumbs up for me.
5. Gohan goes ultimate
Rounding out the top-five of this list is an event that takes place during the Buu Saga. After being defeated by fat Buu Supreme Kai took Gohan to its realm and had him trained with a mystical item called the Z sword. However, after training mishap, the sword broke revealing that the old Supreme Kai was trapped inside. But the situation actually improved as the elder Kai had the power to unlock someone’s hidden potential.
Ultimate Gohan/Mystic Gohan
This led to Ultimate Gohan having to sit down for over a day straight. something I often do when typing blog post like this one. However, the arc adequately builds up to this moment ultimate from. That ultimate from would unleash Gohan’s power to insane heights. It was so much that even Goku was freaking out. No wonder it took so long for Toriyama to make him the top guy again.
But the sheer epicness of this moment that came after a decent build-up and allowed Gohan to finally have full control of his hidden power. This is why I would have to include it on this list.
4. Gohan Defeats Bojack
Up next is another DBZ movie moment and one of the best from Gohan so-called teen era. So although I go in depth about his real age in another post. We saw that the villain Bojack escaped from captivity after Goku brought Cell to King Kai’s planet and destroyed it.
Super Saiyan 2 Gohan Vs Bojack
Naturally, he decided to thank Goku for his freedom by trying to murder his son which was totally the rational decision to make. Anyway, it wasn’t merely Bojack’s own power that made him so tough, but also his crew of space pirates. They were pirates who possess the powerful ability, however, once Gohan went Super Saiyan 2. Gohan’s plot armor far surpassed those moves and he proceeded to create a strong sequel to his fight. Similar to the Cell Juniors by totally wrecking all of them.
You would think that maybe Bojack would put up a better fight, but he got wrecked as Gohan just punched a hole right through him. One of my favorite Parts here has to be just before BoJack’s death when he starts talking trash to Gohan. Like this little kid just punched a hole right through him and he still thought he could win it was hilarious. So, it’s just another reason it had to be on this list.
3. ultimate Gohan vs Buu
Up next is another epic moment from the Buu Saga. After his hidden power was Unleashed Gohan return to Earth in order to fight Buu after Gotenks failed to beat Buu. Goten and Trunks were waiting to refuse when Piccolo sense to massive power moving their way and it’s really the reactions from him and the others that make this moment all the better.
As everyone is shocked by just how strong this unknown person is, Gohan appears in the distance. Piccolo assumes that it’s Goku however, it’s revealed to be Gohan and everyone was shocked. This only Amplified Gohan touching down and then calmly walking up to Buu who towered over him.
Mystic Gohan Vs Buu
Gohan then asserting his Supremacy made for an epic moment. At first, everyone assumes that he couldn’t win, but once Gohan started beating down Buu. It became apparent just how much more powerful he was. As I said earlier this was something that the arc had been building up to for a while. It was about Gohan getting his payback against Buu and it showcases the massive results of his training.
However, as I also said before, Goku must have gotten in Toriyama’s are head because Buu suddenly unveiled new power. A power that let him defeat Gohan and eventually absorb them. But hey at least we got to see this epic moment before it was all ruined.
2. Gohan Goes Super Saiyan 2
For the first time for many people, I could very well see this being the number one on their list. This moment in many ways can be seen as the defining moments for Gohan’s character for the entire Dragon Ball Z series up until this point. We knew of Gohan’s hidden power which was awakened through his rage.
Super Saiyan 2 Teen Gohan
However, Gohan was never truly able to control this power even after achieving the legendary form of Super Saiyan. But after hearing Android 16 words and seeing the Android then destroyed before his eyes by Cell. Gohan fully awoke his hidden power which allowed him to become a Super Saiyan 2.
The transformation itself is incredible, especially in the anime. You may know hey plays and Nozawa which gives that epic scream. This power was also the realization of Gohan will fight with him stepping into the role of the main character of the story. The reaction to those around him and then the Total Domination that follows. Also with Gohan’s annihilation of the cell Juniors makes it stand out as one of the greatest moments in the entire franchise.
1. Gohan Defeats Cell
So number one for me on this list has to be Gohan defeating Super perfect cell. The final climactic moment of the roller coaster that was Gohan vs Cell. After Target self-destruction Cell returned from his own destruction even more powerful than ever. Even worse was that Gohan’s arm was broken by Cell when he flew in the way of Cells attack in order to save Vegeta as Gohan had given up hope.
It was Goku’s voice that intervenes from the afterlife to give him the willpower to charge up to a badass one-handed Kamehameha that challenge Cells solar system Buster level attack. Their clash was so powerful that it was destroying the planet itself and could be felt all the way on Namek.
Gohan vs Cell Fight Series
The other characters couldn’t just sit around and also got involved by trying to attack Cell while he was clashing with Gohan. Although it all proved futile on the pier that Gohan might even lose. But that’s when another epic moment happen. When Vegeta attacks Cell from behind with his Classic Piano blast distracting cell long enough for Gohan to overpower Cell.
Not only was the moment of Vegeta’s being cool but it was also his form of redemption after his numerous mistakes in the arc. Vegeta throwing aside his pride to allow his greatest enemy sun to win.
Also, I’d have to say that I far prefer the anime version to that of the mangas. Why? simply because the manga version was too short and only saw Vegeta interfering. This entire event was also a true passing of the torch to Gohan to become the main character.
With the signature move of the previous main character eventually returned he once again become the main character. This goes down as Gohan’s greatest moment and perhaps even the greatest moment in the Dragon Ball franchise. Now there are other moments from Dragon Ball Z that were on this list. So if you have any then make sure to let me know down below.
