Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero will be released on August 18, where there will be several stories and transformations, such as those of Goku and Piccolo. But there is also Gohan’s conversion into Son Gohan Beast. But what is this about?
The question tried to answer Akira Toriyama:
Darn it, I made a bigger blunder with that paragraph: rather than adding upturned hair to the scary face+pale skin design, Toriyama says he ultimately went with only upturned hair. Gohan does look rather pale and scary in the screenshot, which threw me off. Sorry! pic.twitter.com/iw842uSCPe

“Gohan has had some transformations in the past, but now he needs to awaken a new one,” Toriyama explained. “Gohan has achieved his own unique evolution based on the kind of awakening he had when he was a child. I’ve even called this transformation ‘Son Gohan Beast’, meaning that the wild beast inside of him has awakened,” he added.
“For the design, I tried to draw him with scarily pale skin and face, but somehow that didn’t feel like Gohan. So instead, I gave her the usual spiked-up hair, which ended up surprisingly well. They all said: he looks so cool!, which actually made me feel humbled grateful, ”explained the creator of Dragon Ball.
“Frankly, I don’t know what kind of design I should use if I transform it again,” he finished with a laugh.
