I think you know pretty well what I'm talking about.

The better question is why do you keep bringing up thread after thread after thread on the same exact topic?

Because this is an interesting debate.

Then keep it in a single thread. Not every question warrants its own thread.

It was interesting back in December when you made the first thread. Now it's just obnoxious.

Perhaps he is afraid of his hidden power. Goku calls him a pampered baby even though he didn't resist fighting Bojack and his gang. Kinda makes me wonder why he never tried to go all out, unless he was either afraid, or didn't know how to again.
Why Dragon Ball Consistency in something such as power levels matter!

Probably all of the above and then some. Humans are flawed and even though we can act uncharacteristically at times, we are capable of redemption. I always saw Gohan as Toriyama's commentary on the value of the human life, so I could see him wanting the character to show weakness as we do while still triumphing in the end. Because we can.
