Gohan’s “You Retard” refers to a quote made by Son Gohan from the Dragon Ball collection throughout his struggle towards Majin Buu. The quote turned the topic of assorted memes, edits, captions and exploitable photographs that primarily concentrate on Gohan’s iconically smug face as he delivered the insult.

In Japanese, Gohan calls Buu “うすのろ” (within the manga panel, it’s written in katakana as “ウスノロ”), which will be translated to English as “half-wit”, “idiot” or “simpleton.” Gohan’s assured insult, after he had simply completed outclassing Buu, left everybody within the scene speechless (proven, under).
