Dragon Ball Super surprises us from time to time with the addition of a new character to its ranks, being Gas Heata one of the new warriors we have encountered in the manga. And not only that, but the imposing fighter has unleashed his fury becoming one of the most powerful characters Vegeta and Goku have ever fought, as he has even had to join the fight Granolah, the former strongest warrior in the Universe. But who is Gas really and what are his purposes?
It seems that Gas will not be an easy enemy to defeat…
This article will contain spoilers for Akira Toriyama and Toyotarou’s Dragon Ball Super Chapter 85, which reveals a new form for Gas, the villain of the current arc of the beloved manga. If you want to enjoy it on your own, we recommend you to read it in MangaPlus by Shueisha, as we will talk in depth about the new transformation of this powerful villain.
Who is Gas in Dragon Ball?
Gas is a warrior who belongs to the Heata military family, being the youngest of four brothers. He is also considered the fiercest and most dangerous of all his brothers due to a transformation that is unique to him. He also ended up becoming a mercenary under the influence of Elec, his older brother.
The Heata family used to have an alliance with Freezer, from whom they learned the evil trade of conquering planets and selling them to the highest bidder. It was this military organization who conquered the planet Cereal where Granolah is from, which is why the characters have a deadly enmity in the manga.
As we had seen in the previous chapters, both Goku and Vegeta have been steadily growing in their power level. In fact, there has been speculation as to whether we will finally see the true Ultra Instinct form, as has happened with other characters and their transformations. However, it seems that Akira Toriyama and Toyotarou have decided not to go the easy way, they are not going to defeat Gas as they would have done with any other enemy.
In the last pages of Dragon Ball Super chapter 85, we see Gas reach an “awakened” form of his power. After it seemed that Goku would have some kind of advantage over the hitman who was still not used to his new powers (especially with teleportation), this hope of defeating the “strongest warrior in the universe” has vanished. His brothers seem convinced that this new power will be enough to stop the two saiyan and no one could deny that the next episode will be exciting.
In the current arc of the manga, the hitmen working with Gas lured Goku and Vegeta to Planet Cereal to confront Granola, the last living member of the Cerealian race, a group wiped out by Freezer and the Saiyan army that the villain eventually ignited. Granola had sought revenge on Goku and Vegeta for their ties to the Saiyajin before killing Frieza. However, he soon learned that Goku’s father Bardock was responsible for his survival. They were then attacked by this group of hitmen, who used Planet Cereal’s Dragon Balls to turn Gas into the strongest fighter in the universe, which has led to his transformation into a mass of unstoppable power.
Dragon Ball Super 85, the great transformation of Gas
Dragon Ball Super Chapter 85 may have been the signal or starting point for the big final fight between Gas, Goku and Vegeta. However, it may take a little more time for us to see it, as the release date of Chapter 86 is not known at the time of writing this article. However, the English translation of the manga is usually released between the 18th and 20th of each month, so we can expect something similar.
As a member of the Hitmen, Gas used the dragon spheres from the Cereal Planet in the Granola arc to become the most powerful fighter in the universe. This resulted in the villain obtaining a new form that allowed him to easily defeat Granola, who had discovered the truth of his past, and Goku and Vegeta, who were the last resistance.
However, in the last chapter of the manga, Goku introduces a twist on ultra instinct that allows him to get the best of his power. In response, Elec, the leader of the villain group, goaded Gas into fighting harder, even though his team protested that he was pushing the fighter. After Elec hints that this will be his bully’s final battle, Gas begins to transform. This new form seems more like his old form than the version of him that has been fighting Goku and Granola, when he had not yet mastered his powers. We may once again see how he cannot control his new form.

How powerful is Gas?
Gas is a proud character with a lot of resentment inside, being anger the feeling that most moves him to act. 40 years ago in the Dragon Ball timeline, Gas was defeated by Bardock, Goku’s father, in a battle, and since then he has trained so that this situation does not happen again.
Gas obtained his great power after Elec made a wish to Trombo, the dragon god of the planet Cereal, to turn his little brother into the Supreme Warrior of Universe 7, thus overcoming all the strength of Granolah who previously held that title in his hands. On the other hand, the powerful transformation we referred to earlier is one called Instinct Unleashed, which allows Gas to use all the anger he carries inside. Under this transformation he loses all trace of rationality and acts by pure blind force, eliminating everything in his path.
