Old Kai's Unlock Ability (老界王神の潜在能力開放) is the name given to the power Gohan received from the Old Kai's Unlock Potential that allowed him to unlock his full potential. It was named in the Budokai video game series. In the Budokai Tenkaichi series, Gohan is known as "Ultimate Gohan" while using this power.
Out of gratitude for being freed from the legendary Z Sword, Old Kai explained that he would release all of Gohan's dormant power. After days of the Old Kai walking around Gohan performing a sacred ritual and then sitting in front of him to unlock his potential, Gohan finally tested out his new power by powering up like for the Super Saiyan transformation at Old Kai's suggestion. Doing so, Gohan's eyes take on a sharper shape and his power explodes to a completely new level while hair remain unchanged. A short time later, Gohan is transported to Earth for a rematch with Majin Buu (wearing his father's signature gi, courtesy of Kibito's Magic Materialization) who had now transformed into Super Buu.
A whole new GohanEdit
After a reunion with Goten, Trunks, and Piccolo, Gohan quickly attacks and subsequently overcomes Super Buu with little effort. Try as he might, Super Buu is unable to land a single damaging hit on Gohan, who simply dodges and blocks all of the monster's attacks. After taking a merciless beating, Super Buu proceeds to blow himself up in an attempt to finally defeat Gohan. However, Gohan sees right through this and quickly grabs and flies away with Piccolo and the boys. Super Buu returns one hour later, insisting on finishing his fight with Gotenks before battling Gohan. However, once the boys fused into Gotenks, they, as well as Piccolo, are absorbed by Super Buu.
The tables have turnedEdit
With his new power, Super Buu resumes his fight with Gohan, but still Gohan managed to hold his own. Super Buu used Piccolo's intellect to play mind games on Gohan and quickly gains the upper hand. Gohan's power becomes useless after taking a merciless beating from Buu. Soon, Tien Shinhan arrives and saves Gohan from death. With Super Buu distracted, Dende manages to heal Gohan. Tien is quickly dispatched by Super Buu, and Gohan rises from the rubble to continue the fight. Realizing that Gohan was now against the odds, a newly revived Goku suddenly arrives, prompting the use of Potara Earrings for fusion. However, Gohan fails to catch the earring. By the time he found it, Gotenks defuses inside Super Buu's body, prompting the Majin to absorb Gohan and become more powerful than ever.
Wrath of the DragonEdit
Battle of GodsEdit
In the movie Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, Gohan uses his fully unlocked potential to engage the God of Destruction Bills, briefly putting him into a Full-Nelson only for it to be reversed. Gohan is then swung around and is forced to collide heads with Mr. Buu. Bills then proceeds to take Gohan down with a heavy kick to the abdomen.
