New 'Dragon Ball' Fan-Art Turns Gohan Into Piccolo's Master

With as prevalent Gohan and Piccolo have become in Dragon Ball Super thanks to the Tournament of Power, some fans have often wondered what it would be like if their roles were reversed.

What would it look like if Gohan was Piccolo's master instead? Thanks to one fan, the final result seems a lot more different than you'd expect.

Twitter user @DetectiveX uploaded this fan-art that depicts Gohan as Piccolo's master, but not in the way most fans would picture it.

Since Gohan has been raised with a more studious background, it seems natural that he'd be Piccolo's sensei in education. Piccolo taught him everything he knows about fighting and survival, so it's funny to think that Gohan would want to teach him about other things.

Another piece of great fan-art depicted Piccolo charging his patented Special Beam Cannon while the ghosts of Nail and Kami mysteriously float above him. Each one of them having a dark and mysterious aura that is perfectly fitting to the character Piccolo had evolved into by Dragon Ball Super.

Dragon Ball Super has gone to great lengths to bring Gohan and Piccolo back to the spotlight. In the Tournament of Power, Gohan and Piccolo once traded places and Gohan deflected a blast aimed at a helpless Piccolo much like Piccolo saved Gohan during the "Saiyan" arc. Moments like these and the fan art above have paved their way into fans' hearts and built up a large amount of appreciation for Piccolo and Gohan duo overall.

Dragon Ball Super airs on Crunchyroll Saturday evenings at 7:15 p.m. CST. Adult Swim airs the English dub during its Toonami block Saturday evenings at 9:30 p.m, and is now available to stream on FunimationNOW and Amazon Video.


If you want to catch up with the English dub, the first 39 episodes of Dragon Ball Super are now available to stream on FunimationNOW, Crunchyroll's VRV service, and available to purchase on Amazon Video. The 39 episodes span the full range of what has aired in the North America and covers the "Battle of Gods" arc, "Revival of F" arc, and the most recently ended "Universe 6" arc.

Funimation has previously announced the rest of the series will soon be available on the service as well. Releasing in 13 episode batches two weeks after the last episode airs on Cartoon Network, fans of Dragon Ball Super's English dub without a cable connection will soon have a way to experience the series.
