"Sixteen...you loved life. You gave everything up to save it and you were just an android...I let you die. I can't do that - I won't watch anymore. I feel it slipping...AND I WON'T WATCH THIS ANYMORE!"
— Gohan snaps in "Awakening"

Unforgivable (もうゆるさないぞ Mō yurusanai zo, lit. "I Won't Forgive You Anymore") is a technique used by Gohan.


Pushed beyond his limit with nothing but fury, Gohan screams and powers up into Super Saiyan 2, unleashing his dormant strength and killing intent.


After witnessing Cell destroy Android 16 and his Cell Juniors beat up his friends and family, Gohan flies into an "Unforgivable" rage and awakens the newly-ascended state of Super Saiyan 2, promising to make Cell and his children pay for what they've done.

In Dragon Ball Z: Bojack Unbound, Gohan is narrowly saved by Goku, who breaks the laws of the afterlife to rescue his son from Full Power Bojack. After being motivated by Goku to believe in himself and unleash his true power, Gohan uses Unforgivable, calling Bojack out for his tyrannical attitude and reminding him that he is his father's son, ready to defend Earth in his place.

Unforgivable appears in Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle as Super Saiyan Gohan's Active Skill under the name "Awakening" where Gohan awakens to his Super Saiyan 2 state if your HP falls below a certain threshold and enough turns have passed if there is Android ally or enemy (or immediately if Android 16 is in the team).
