Gohan at first was presented as a child away from fighting.
Dragon Ball has been presenting over the years to an immense number of characters, which in many cases begin as Goku’s enemies to finally become his allies, this being something that we have been able to see practically in the majority even today with Hit, Jiren and Beerus. Now, of all these if there is one that did not face Goku, this was Gohan, the son of the saiyan and Thousand.
Given this, it must be said that Gohan, which has recently been treated as the big problem of Dragon Ball today, was presented for the first time at the beginning of Dragon Ball Zshowing him as a young boy who was presented by Goku to Bulma, Krillin and Master Roshi to everyone’s surprise, since, after all, these They hadn’t seen Goku in five years..
Gohan had four versions that showed his classic boy outfit with different colors.
With all this being said, we already know that artists generally don’t use the first designs to capture them in their works, while in the case of Gohan we could see that he was presented with a green and yellow outfit and a red cap with the 4-star Dragon Ball as the main element. However, in the middle of 2023 it has been possible to see that there were other alternative designs.
This has been shared on Twitter by the user known as Geekdom101 (@EmperorBigD), who has been in charge of uploading images with four alternative designs of Gohan, being that his initial suit was quite far from the final model with these being red, orange, blue and light blue. Yes, it seems that the red tone of the cap was the lightest they had. You can take a look at these designs below:

I presume the animation staff weren’t sure which colors to use for the anime. I wonder how these would’ve worked in the anime itself. pic.twitter.com/mr0j3gtEz0

For the rest, it must be said that, with several decades behind them, Gohan has become one of the strongest beings in Dragon Ball despite the fact that he has left a questionable legacy to the Saiyans that have come after him. Be that as it may, we will be waiting to see this hybrid of Saiyan and human rise up in the new superhero arc of Dragon Ball Super.
