Gohan is a person torn between being taught by his mother to be a scholar and taught by his father and his blood to be a warrior. As a result when it came down to becoming the type who can go all in and destroy a foe quickly and efficiently like he could have done against Perfect Cell and Super Buu, his own nature of anger and wanting to make evil suffer gets in his way of being the kind of guy who can fully end evil threats with absolute force. Even against Cell, Gohan couldn't make the killing blow until his father beckoned him to.
>>138067638 Super buu was too stronk for any of the main characters to handle. Even Goku in ssj 3 completely gets his ass handed to him. The only reason he was ever beaten was because they had asspull fusion earrings.
>>138072417 Oh, for fuck's sake, this isn't some deep and intelligent series, it's not that difficult to understand. Gohan in the Cell arc thought daddy Goku was going to defeat Cell, you can see how scared he was when Goku told everybody he (Gohan) was the only one that could save their fucking asses. Gohan at that point hadn't kill anyone, he tried to kill Frieza but because Frieza harmed daddy Piccolo, but then daddy Goku came to the rescue. And the only reason he snapped was because of 16's death, a fucking robot that cannot be revived. In the Buu saga he was willing to kill, because he actually learned THAT lesson. And Buu saga was supposed to teach him the lesson RoF taught him, but as Toriyama is a fucking senile jew he forgot that Gohan already got his ass tortured by Buu, Earth was already destroyed and daddy Piccolo was absorbed because he got cocky amd let Goten and Trunks fuck things. But Toriyama needed to write something for Gohan so he recycled Buu saga's plot.
Goku is a massive faggot when it comes to anything and never takes it crucially serious, even when the entity blows up planets FOR FUN.
Examples of this:
Fighting Vegeta and getting bogged down in enjoying the fight instead of winning. Vegeta would have been killed in seconds if Goku had gone with a Spirit Bomb right away or began to charge it right after the 4x kamehameha.
Held back the entire fight until Frieza went 'Okay, Im bored now. Not fighting at 1% anymore' and fucking trashed him so hard he couldn't even scratch him.
Cell was a travesty. He got himself, Trunks and nearly the entire planet killed because he couldn't see past his fight lust and didn't realise his pacifist, stronger son didn't WANT to fight and only did so as a last resort.
Buu was a fucking lark.
Didn't kill Vegeta right away. Didn't kill Buu when he could. Let Super Buu absorb them instead of just going 'fuck it, dragonballslol' since that was entirely Goku's personality since Vegeta was a much smarter fighter in the long run. Didn't just straight up kill Kid Buu in SSJ3 and almost killed himself, Vegeta, the other Buu, Hercule and the quintessential gods on DB at time.
He was a massive fucking retard.
This is why Piccolo literally stated he was powerful but he was no master.
>>138074762 I am well aware Goku is a fucking moron.and puts his love for fights above anything else. But: When he fought Vegeta he actually got concerned for everyone's safety first, then his fight. Even when he asked Krillin to not kill Vegeta he was well aware how selfish he was been. Same with Frieza, he made sure everyone was safe before he started to fight Frieza as SSJ. With Cell he got confident because muh son and his potential, Goku never stopped to think how Gohan was going to react, but he thought Earth was safe. Same with Buu. In Super he can't stop fucking in battles, he needed Vegeta to told him to use his fucking head with Pooh. Now his priorities are train with best buddy Vegeta, fights and nothing more.
>>138067638 I always thought it was because he didn't want to hurt Piccolo and Gotenks in there, but that's never actually mentioned Also, Buu was taunting him and telling him that he disappointed everyone. So being upset about that + maybe believing that he'd hurt the people Buu absorbed. The guy has a lot of emotional problems ever since he was born
Also if you watch the battle he barely plays offensive. He also completely misses catching the earring which shouldn't be an issue at this point, even if he hasn't been training he's played baseball in school at least once So it's likely he didn't want to attack for some reason or another, or was thinking too hard to be aggressive
>>138075252 Because nothing in Super has been in a situation in which the Earth and everyone on it will seriously die. The closest was Beerus but he had a plan for that with wishing to Shenron.
(Despite even not taking that seriously as he could have just come up front and center as soon as he got there and wished on the dragon instead of hanging back and feeling him out). That being said, even in that regard, Goku wouldn't have won that anwyay.
And Freeza was just a joke the whole time. Goku and Vegeta both could have just wiped him out way earlier but again, the battle lust always keeps him from going all out just as he always has
>>138080586 Eh, it's more like Gohan lost to everybody in that arc is the issue. It's not like we knew Goku was gonna end up being the hero in the end (Neither did Toriyama) so we're still thinking Gohan's gonna end up turning this shit around
>>138080371 >To think this faggot The way you write makes you sound like an edgy kid. Gohan is weak in contrast with his Ultimate form, but he is still stronger than non-Vegeta/Goku/Buu. Even in the movie he had to help Piccolo against Shisami, in the series he fucked edgy Tagoma and BTFO of Ginyu!Tagoma with just SSJ. And Tagoma BTFO the Piccolo who probably is almost as strong as a SSJ2.
>>138080593 >Because nothing in Super has been in a situation in which the Earth and everyone on it will seriously die In his fight with Beerus Goku was aware their punches were fucking the entire universe, didn't give a shit and tried a new technique despite the risks. In his fight with Golden Frieza he gave a shit for one second despite Krillin and co were crying out of fear, then he persued to play with his non best buddy Frieza, the same Frieza that couldn't stop telling him how much he wanted to kill his ass and tortured his love ones. Then Sorbet BTFO him, tehehehe, I fucked there best buddy Vegeta. Can I try again? Then Vegeta had to tell him to use his dead brain cells for a second to defeat Pooh.
