Piccolo didn't really expect to fight a giant ape. In this guide for Dragon Ball Z Kakarot we explain how to beat Gohan ape Oozaru
For those who have followed Dragon Ball since its origins, you will know that the first appearance of the ape takes place in the first series. Goku turned into Oozaru destroying Pilaf's palace in the middle of the desert. Every Saiyan who possesses the tail has the ability to transform into these huge creatures simply by looking at the full moon (almost like a werewolf). Originally the fearsome warriors from space were trained in this type of transformation and knew how to perfectly control themselves, using it to conquer enemy planets. But Goku as a child and Gohan in Z were never trained to use it, so they lose control, sowing terror and destruction.
A particular full moon night
In Dragon Ball Z, after the fight against Radditz, Gohan is "kidnapped" by Piccolo and trained to become a formidable warrior. However one night during training, Gohan observes the moon and transforms into an out of control ape.

In the video game of Dragon Ball Z Kakarot have perfectly transposed this situation, we will have to beat Gohan in the form of Oozaru monkey taking control of Piccolo. Let's find out how to do it.
