Can we just go back and talk about how beast Mystic Gohan is for a while? I really want to ask Toriyama why he makes him the strongest guy in the universe and then always has him lose.
Because he has all the benefits and weaknesses of goku amplified.
He has a stronger drive and power and strength and potential.
But he also has a stronger immaturity, less control of his power (they tend to control him when he powers up to full) and above all he has a much bigger ego as a fighter.
Goku will sometimes toy with his opponent as is the egotistical nature of Sayins, but he usually eventually comes back to his senses and controls himself. He regains his senses and fights smart.
Gohan on the other hand cannot seem to regain this control. As seen in his fights with cell and buu. When he gets pissed he completely surrenders to his power instead on trying to control it. That's why he is the most powerful fighter in the universe but loses battles because of his ego and loss of control.
