Dragon Ball Super Super Hero Plot…
Toei Animation has told us a lot about Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero’s plot. Shueisha’s executive producer, Akiyo Ikoyu, said that they wanted to make it clear that the movie is all about the superhero vibes. Early in March 2022, Toei Animation released a new synopsis and trailer that hinted at a mysterious “ultimate evil weapon.” The official synopsis for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero has been translated into English by Todd Blankenship. It says:
Based on what Toei Animation showed at the Comic-Con panel, other Z Fighters will get their chance to shine in the new Dragon Ball Super movie. In Toei Animation’s presentation, one of the producers of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, Akio Iyoku, said that the story will be mostly about Gohan and Piccolo. Based on the character designs that were shown, it was confirmed that the next Dragon Ball Super movie will take place after Dragon Ball Super: Broly but before the 28th Tenkaichi Budokai Tournament. This could be a link to a new season of the anime series.
The panel also showed original art by Akira Toriyama with new characters, which turned out to be Gamma 1 and Gamma 2. Before the Dragon Ball Super panel at NYCC 2021, Toei Animation shared a poster for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. The image shows the two new characters.
At SDCC, they also showed off a piece of key art from Toriyama. It shows a top-down view of a waterfall location with Piccolo’s house in the background, but the studio hasn’t said what might happen there.
From what we know so far, it looks like Piccolo’s house will play a big role in Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. More information has come out about where Piccolo lives. At the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero panel at NYCC 2021, it was also said that the Red Ribbon Army and Broly will play a part in the story. The clip was shown at the event and also showed Pan training to become a Super Saiyan.
The first trailer also showed that Goku, Vegeta, and Buu were going to be portrayed as bad guys. The Saiyan Prince was even wearing his “Badman” shirt. The trailer already showed that Gohan and Gamma 1 will have an epic fight in the rain, but this scene was changed at the last minute.
You can listen to a short clip of the movie’s dialogue, spoken by Gohan, Piccolo, Gamma 1, and Gamma 2:
The clip was from Jump Festa and was shared by DbsHype. It looks like the movie will focus more on Gohan and Piccolo as they try to fight the most dangerous robots the Red Ribbon Army has made so far. You can also read this special story in the March 2022 issue of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero V Jump. It tells the main story of the movie: At Anime Japan in March 2022, the movie’s director, Tetsuro Kodama, talked about the Red Ribbon Army’s headquarters, which is a wild place.
“We made the image based on the concept art drawn by Toriyama-sensei and added different things to it, Kodama said (via DBSChronicles). “In this image, there is a large crater in a mountainous area where a city like a park has been built. The idea is that this is where the Red Ribbon Army lives. Being in a valley gives the impression of a place with few roads that makes it hard to drive a car. Basically, a monorail goes through the valley.”
In April 2022, a new movie poster showed that Piccolo will go on a mission undercover to find out what the Red Ribbon Army is doing. The caption says that the strongest Namekian in the whole universe found more than he expected in the new headquarters of the Red Ribbon Army. In an interview with Japan’s Weekly TV Guide in April 2022, Mamoru Miyano, who voices Gamma 2, said that Piccolo will have “great fight scenes.”
Magenta of the Red Ribbon Army is also said to fight “a certain someone” in the movie, but no one knows who that will be yet.
A Twitter user named DbsHype posted a new picture from the Weekly Shonen Jump on May 6 that shows Broly, Goku, and Vegeta working together.
