Dragon Ball Super: Super heroes

The talk of the town when it comes to Dragon Ball Super: Super heroes usually drifts towards Gohan and Piccolo, as they are the stars of the film and on the front line when it comes to fighting the Red Ribbon Army and their two new androids, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2. Lucky for the pair of Z -Fighters, they received some serious support, with fans noting that a teenaged Goten and Trunks would appear in the new Shonen movie. With the animated film being number one in North America, here’s a breakdown of Gotenks’ role.

Gotenks, as Dragon Ball fans know, came into the picture during the Majin Buu Saga, with Goten and Trunks learning to perform the Fusion Dance, a technique Goku had learned during his afterlife training. While this fusion character is extremely powerful on her own, managing to transition into Super Saiyan 3 right from the break, there is one major downside to the fusion dance that Goku and Vegeta’s two young sons will normally encounter. In Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, it’s been a while since the two Z-Fighters merged, causing Goten and Trunks to mess up the fusion dance and create a much larger, less powerful version of Gotenks.

Despite the failure of the fusion dance, Gotenks still joins Piccolo, Gohan, Android 18, Krillin, and the Gammas to battle the movie’s big bad, Cell Max. The Fusion Character isn’t even powerful enough to transform into a Super Saiyan, but he is able to land a blow that weakens the new version of Cell, leaving the Biological Nightmare open to attack that eventually knocks him down thanks at a well placed Gohan’s Special Beam Cannon.

Sadly, Dragon Ball Super fans never got to see what a teenage version of Gotenks looks like, with Goten and Trunks’ latest shot hinting that they managed to perform the dance without showing the result. With Dragon Ball Super manga currently working on a new arc, maybe we’ll see the merging of Goten and Trunks arrive in the Shonen series.

Do you hope to see Gotenks return in the future of Dragon Ball Super? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of Z-Fighters.
