One of the reveals teases a new look of Piccolo, which showed some kind of orange pattern going on his body causing him to grow and look bigger. Fans are crazy excited over this recent Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero tease. Some are expressing their excitement about Piccolo’s power-up and expecting that Gohan will go through one as well.

The new form of Piccolo in the upcoming film seems to be evolved by an orange, ring-like structure coming across his back, causing him to grow bigger and probably, stronger. This power-up is something that Lord Slug was worthy to do in the non-canon Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug film, where the villain accumulated to a huge size. It is still unconfirmed to be comparable in theory as of this writing, but the two characters seem to have resemblances, even if this doesn’t prove to be the canonical case.

Keeping this aside, fans are also excited to see Piccolo approving a power-up and fans are reflecting their hope for Gohan to also receive one. Blowout towards Piccolo particularly is just as favorable, and many fans want this latest reveal to allow him to become a more appropriate character in the series. Some theories approve that this has something to do with Piccolo’s origin story as a member of all three Namekian clans through his ancestry and family tree. This fact is entirely possible and would be extremely satisfying for fans to see his Namekian origin play, which will be a major role in his next power-up. It will be very similar to the Super Saiyan transformation for Goku, Vegeta, and other Saiyans.
