When did Gohan learn to fly? I recently started watching DBZ again from ep 1 and I noticed he never flew when training with Piccolo, even when the dude dropped him off a cliff and told him to find out how to get back up. During the fight with Nappa, he didnt seem to know how to fly at all and suddenly, after Goku lifts him and Krillin up when Vegeta kills Nappa, he can fly! At first he is grabbing Goku by the leg but then he's just floating in the air by himself.People in the internet say Piccolo taught him but if that was the case, I'm pretty sure he would've done it at some point during the fight.My theory is that he learned to fly by watching people do it or just by himself, just like he learned to manipulate ki while living alone in the plains, and after Goku lifted him in the air he actually tried it for the first time. Of course, I expect @Nia to post at some time and correct me .P.S.: When I say he didn't fly before, I'm not counting the sudden bursts of anger or fear that made him super strong.
Maybe it's on the manga and they skipped it because it lack importance?I don't read manga so I wouldn't know, just saying
Well, when did Goku learn to fly? We didn't see anyone teaching him this Technique, so it most likely happened "off-screen". Same with Gohan.
Goku learned how to fly in the last episode of the original Dragon Ball series while fighting piccolo I believe.
Well, I think Kami tought it to him and Goku kept it a secret until his final attack. No one, not even Piccolo, Gokus Friends, and most importantly the Viewer/Reader expected that and it's the move that saved his life in this Battle.But that's just a theory as well, just like Gohan learning it just like that by seeing it. It's never stated, so one can only assume.
DB series I believe the ones who knew to fly were Ten and Chiaotzu, don't remember if them taught it to Goku and the others.
Take into account that he was freaking out most of the time he was fighting against Nappa, and stricken with fear, so it's possible Piccolo taught him, and he just wimped out.
That or Toriyama just forgot Gohan couldn't fly, and didn't bother to explain it. XD
I remember watching an episode where Goku was carrying Gohan in the Nimbus and Gohan fell into a river or something like that. He then fell off a waterfall I think and was Goku found him on a branch very far away from the waterfall, crying. He then asked him "How did you get all the way up there?" I'm pretty sure I might be wrong in some story details, but it was something like that.
I actually was thinking this the whole time and I think that's the actual reason but I rather give like a logical explanation instead of blaming Toriyama
