In Dragon Ball Super Chapter 98, things are tricky for Gohan, Piccolo, and their team. Goten and Trunks kick off the battle against Cell Max but quickly struggle against the formidable foe. They relentlessly attack Cell Max, aiming to defeat it before it awakens. Saiyaman joins the fray, launching continuous assaults alongside Gamma 1 and 2.
The barrage of combo attacks takes aback Cell Max. However, as time passes, Cell Max becomes furious and changes tactics. Goten and Trunks prepare to fuse but end up as a chubby version of Gotenks.
Seeing this, Gohan and Piccolo decide to join the battle. They intensify their attacks on Cell Max, pushing it into a defensive stance. Gamma 1 reveals that Cell Max’s weak point is on top of its head.
Despite their energy blasts, they fail to harm Cell Max. Gamma 1 employs a unique energy blast to target some of Cell Max’s weak spots. This only infuriates the heartless creature further, causing it to release more energy into the atmosphere.
Gohan suggests a need for a more decisive move, while Gamma 2 mentions that Gamma 1 still has a mission – to save Dr. Hedo. The chapter concludes at this point.
What Happened in Dragon Ball Super Chapter 97
Dragon Ball Super Chapter 97, titled “Rampaging Cell Max,” picks up the storyline from the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie adaptation. The chapter begins with Goten and Trunks, who transform into the Saiyamen, bravely taking on Cell Max. They initially put up a good fight, but Cell Max’s overwhelming power eventually proves too much for them.
Just when it appears that Cell Max is about to deliver a decisive blow, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2 arrive on the scene and step in to help. It’s revealed that the Gammas were created by Dr. Hedo using the DNA of Goten and Trunks, which explains their similar fighting styles.
Gamma 1 and Gamma 2 join forces with Goten and Trunks to confront Cell Max, and together, they gain a slight advantage. However, Cell Max remains a formidable adversary, eventually defeating Gamma 1.
With Gamma 1 down, Gamma 2 faces Cell Max alone. He understands he can’t defeat Cell Max alone, but his determination to protect his friends and family drives him forward. Gamma 2 makes the courageous decision to self-destruct in a final bid to defeat Cell Max. Activating his self-destruct mechanism, he charges at Cell Max, successfully detonating himself and obliterating Cell Max in the process.
The battle concludes with Cell Max’s defeat, but the sacrifice of Gamma 2 weighs heavily on everyone. Goten and Trunks are heartbroken by the loss of their friend, while Goku and Vegeta express gratitude for Gamma 2’s heroic sacrifice.
The chapter ends with Goku and Vegeta reflecting on the events that transpired. Goku admires Gamma 2’s strength and bravery, while Vegeta unexpectedly feels sadness over Gamma 2’s death.
Overall, Dragon Ball Super Chapter 97 delivers a compelling continuation of the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie adaptation, featuring thrilling action sequences and a genuinely emotional moment in Gamma 2’s sacrifice.
