— Goten to Trunks just before the 25th World Martial Arts Tournament

Goten (孫悟天, Son Goten) is a protagonist in the Dragon Ballmanga and the animes Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball GT. He is the second and last child of the main protagonist of the Dragon BallseriesGoku, and his wife, Chi-Chi, making him a Saiyan and Humanhybrid. Goten was created in the series to replace Goku as Akira Toriyama wanted to retire Goku from the series, allowing Gohan to take command. However, Toriyama was forced to bring Goku back when the fans disapproved of the decision to replace him. Goten is Gohan's younger brother, and Trunks' best friend.


[hide] *1 Appearance


"Hey, I think there's a little me hiding behind your leg, Chi-Chi!"

— Goku, when seeing Goten for the first time

Goten's appearance is very similar to Goku's childhood look, including messy, unkempt hair and a playful face. He also wears a similar gi to Goku's, minus the kame symbol, in the Majin Buu Arc. His appearance drastically changes as he grows older, resembling his brother Gohan more than his father as a teenager; he has the same long messy hair as Gohan at a younger age. Towards the end of Dragon Ball Z, Goten is seen with a shaggier hairstyle. Goten also shares the typical Saiyan appetite like his father and his brother. In Dragon Ball GT, his hairstyle becomes spiky, straight, and tilted.


Dragon Ball Z

Early life

Goten as a Baby, having his mother, elder brother and grandfather watch over him.

Goten is the second son of Chi-Chi and Goku, and younger brother to Gohan. Goten is born nine months after the defeat of Cell in the Cell Games Saga. As Goku dies during the Cell Games, while Chi-Chi is pregnant, Goten does not meet his father Goku until he reaches the age of seven. Goten is not pushed in school as much as Gohan is, and instead is trained in martial arts by Chi-Chi. The reasons for this are never fully explained, but it seems to have something to do with Goku's death.

Goten as a baby playing with his elder brother and mother.

Goten is incredibly strong as a child, far stronger than either Goku or Gohan ever were at his age. Chi-Chi first discovers that Goten can become a Super Saiyan at only seven years old (the Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury video game manual says that he was only three years old when he first went Super Saiyan), and he looks almost exactly like Goku when he first transformed into a Super Saiyan. Goten transforming into a Super Saiyan made him the youngest Super Saiyan ever at that point. When Gohan asks how histransformation occurred, Goten said that he was learning Martial Arts from his mom and accidentally turned into a Super Saiyan, so she told him never to transform again. The ease at which he does so has been a matter of controversy, seeing as it took years for Goku, Vegeta, and, to a lesser extent, Gohan to obtain and master the technique. Whatever the reason, Goten displays exceptional power at a young age, rapidly increasing his strength. During Goten's childhood he is good friends with Bulma and Vegeta's son Trunks, who he would have "fight games" with. This serves to increase their respective strength significantly, compared to the other Human-Saiyan hybrids that are seen at that age, and both became a Super Saiyan at a young age.

The World Tournament

"Now that Mom's not here... is it okay, if I be like you? Ya know, a Super Saiyan."

— Goten questioning Gohan.

Goten in the opening theme and his first appearance throughout the Dragon Ball franchise.

Goten's first appearance in the series is when he is seven years old. Discovering that his father, Goku, will be returning to Earth for a day to compete in the 25thWorld Martial Arts Tournament, he trains with his older brother, Gohan, for the event, a section of the training was throwing rocks at Gohan, which Gohan could barely dodge even as a Super Saiyan, showing Goten's amazing power. During this training, it is discovered that Goten has already mastered the transformation of Super Saiyan, and ironically, it is also discovered that Goten is not able to fly(something Gohan describes as "learning how to run before you learn how to crawl"). Gohan trains Goten in fighting and flight, along with his friend (and later on, wife), Videl.

Goten meets Goku for the first time at the age of 7.

Goten meets Goku for the first time at the tournament. In the manga, he is rather shy upon first meeting his father, but in the anime, he embraces his father and they play airplane for a little bit. Goten then competes in the Junior Division. After defeating Ikose and his younger brother, respectively, Goten and his best friend, Trunks, both make it to the finals. The two powerful, young Saiyanwarriors place rules limiting their powers during the fight, prohibiting their Super Saiyan transformations. Trunks comes out victorious, due to transforming, using his left arm, and firing an energy blast from his left hand which knocked Goten out of the ring, all three of which Trunks said he would not do, though Goten also became a Super Saiyan earlier in the fight. With the two boys wanting more of a challenge, they disguise themselves and enter the Adult Division, as Mighty Mask.

The ancient evil, Majin Buu

Goten happy to know he will meet a wizard.

After Gohan is attacked, and the Z Team pursues the attackers, Goten and Trunks fight Android 18 and Mr. Satan in a battle royale. They are disqualified when Android 18 exposes them by destroying their costume. Goten and Trunks leave and are informed by Videl that Gohan and the others are in pursuit of an evil wizard named Babidi who is attempting to awaken his monster named Majin Buu.

Goten turns into a Super Saiyan to help Trunks save Vegeta.

Goten and Trunks fly toward Babidi's spaceship, and, upon arrival, see that Piccolo and Krillin have been turned to stone by Dabura. Trunks accidentally breaks Piccolo's statue, and is afraid he might have killed him, but Piccolo regenerates himself when Dabura is killed by Majin Buu and he reverts from his stone form, along with Krillin. With Gohan and Goku knocked out, Vegeta arrives to fight Majin Buu, only to be severely beaten by the monster. After saving Vegeta, Goten and Trunks attempt to fight alongside Vegeta, but he knocks the boys unconscious, knowing that Majin Buu is too strong for them to help him. He thenblows himself up, hoping that will finish him, but fails, as Majin Buu regenerates himself. Goten is taken to Kami's Lookout to take refuge from Majin Buu's assault on the world.

Babidi makes an announcement to the world to tell that Piccolo, Trunks, and Goten must be found for their interference in the fight with Majin Vegeta earlier, as well as for Piccolo slaughtering Babidi. The boys wake up and attack Mr. Popo. Goku stops them and tells them that Vegeta and Gohan are dead, making the boys cry. Goku teaches them the fusion technique with the remainder of time he has left on earth. Babidi tells the world that he is going to West City to blow it up. Trunks rushes to the Capsule Corporation to get the Dragon Radar. Goku intercepts Babidi and Buu to give Trunks time to get to Capsule Corporation, Goku shows them Super Saiyan 3 and starts to fight Majin Buu. Trunks got the radar and Goku returned to the Lookout. Goku teaches the boys the fusion technique and shows them Super Saiyan 3. Fortuneteller Baba tells Goku his time is up (his time was shortened due to his Super Saiyan 3 transformation) and leaves the rest to Piccolo. Goten hugs his father one more time before going back to Other World.

Fusion Plan

Goten and Trunks perform the fusion technique as Super Saiyans.

A day later, with Goku in Other World, Piccolo teaches the boys the rest of theFusion Dance. After two days, Goten and Trunks are ready to fight Majin Buu. Goten then watches as Super Buu turns his mother into an egg and crushes her, angering Goten and thus prompting him to train as hard as he can. 

Gotenks in his Super Saiyan 3 form.

They fuse and create the warrior Gotenks, who fights Majin Buu twice, almost defeating him. Gotenks is absorbed by Super Buu after Gohan arrives from the Sacred World of the Kais (being there training) to assist the boys. Goten is saved along with Piccolo, Trunks, and Gohan by Goku and the deceased Vegeta, by forming Vegito and making Buu absorb him. Goten dies along with Trunks, Gohan, Piccolo, and the other survivors when Kid Buu blows up the Earth, but he is brought back to life along with the others killed by Buu with the Namekian Dragon Balls. Goten, Trunks, Gohan, and Piccolo are then seen contributing to Goku's Super Spirit Bomb.

He meets with Goku once again, with everyone else on Kami's Lookout, after Goku had killed Kid Buu with the Super Spirit Bomb, and watches his parents (Goku and Chi-Chi) reunite and hug each other after Goku tells Chi-Chi he wants to live with her and their kids as a family of four.

Dragon Ball Z movies

Dragon Ball Z: Broly - Second Coming
"Hm? Kakarot? What is that? Is that a vegetable, I hate vegetables!"

— Goten after Broly called him "Kakarot"

Goten and Trunks hapily hunting at the start of Dragon Ball Z: Broly Second Coming.

Seven years have passed since Broly had been defeated by Goku when Goten, Trunks, and Videl are on a Dragon Ball hunt so Videl could see Shenron. They come across Natade Village, which is governed by an over-reactive priest,Maloja. Goten, Trunks, and Videl are all informed of a monster that has terrorized the village, causing it to become impoverished. To rid the monster, Goten, Trunks and Videl leave food for the monster to attract it into a trap. While the trio is hiding, Trunks quickly steals an apple. As a result, this makes Goten jealous and he becomes tempted to steal one.

Goten crying because of his large craving for an apple.

Goten then tries to grab an apple, but Videl slaps him and makes Goten pretend to cry, which Videl gives into only to have Trunks reply with,"I cant believe you fell for it!" The monster appears, but turns out to be a dinosaur. Goten and Trunks actually toy with it first, then defeat it. With the monster gone, the priest is rejected by the villagers for not being a savior, and thrown out of the village. Goten, Trunks and Videl depart the now peaceful Natade Village. Unbeknownst to the trio, Broly awoke due to Goten's incessant cries and broke out of the ice, which imprisoned him. The cries of Goten may have been reminiscent of baby Goku's crying, which tormented baby Broly given that baby Goku made him cry right after they were born; hence Broly had harbored a subconscious hatred towards Goku literally since birth.

Trunks and Goten at Natade Village.

Goten and Trunks see what was happening to Videl, who was flying above a nearby lake and unfortunately confronted Broly. Goten and Trunks try to tell Broly to stop, but when Broly fixes his eyes on Goten, he becomes infuriated, mistaking Goten for Goku, due to Goten being a spitting image of Goku (and also Broly's deteriorating mental state). Broly subsequently pummels Goten and Trunks.

Goku, Gohan and Goten fire the trio Kamehameha wave at Broly.

In the middle of the battle, Goten's eyes fall on the last Dragon Ball, which is standing behind Broly. While Trunks tries to distract Broly, Goten chases after the last Dragon Ball. When Goten retrieves the Dragon Ball, he hides in a cave behind a waterfall to prevent Broly from spotting him. When Shenron did not appear, Goten leaves the cave and sees Trunks being beaten to a pulp by Broly. Luckily, Gohan comes around and joins the battle against Broly. Unfortunately, Gohan is not able to defeat Broly. As a last resort, Gohan transforms into Super Saiyan and Goten also transforms into Super Saiyan. Both try to kill Broly with a combined Kamehameha, but Broly counters with an Omega Blaster to block both Goten and Gohan's blasts. Goten wishes that his dad was there, and Shenron seems to grant the wish. Goku appears beside Gohan and Goten and helps them in the Beam Struggle. Finally, Goten, Gohan and Goku unleash a triple Kamehameha that blasts Broly into the Sun, where he presumably disintegrates.

Dragon Ball Z: Bio-Broly

Super Saiyan Goten attacks Bio Broly.

Goten, Trunks, Krillin, and Marron wait outside Satan House as Android 18 ransacks the house, demanding the 20 million zeni Mr. Satan promised her. Soon, Goten, Trunks, and Android 18 departs for Mei Queen Castle with Men-Men, a cousin of Mr. Satan's martial arts rival, Lord Jaguar. Upon arriving, Jaguar sets up a tournament for Mr. Satan to fight the Bio-Warriors. Satan becomes discouraged as the Bio-Warriors display abilities far too incredible for Mr. Satan to handle. Goten, Trunks and Android 18 intervene, but Satan will have to pay another 20 million to Android 18 for her to take care of business. As Goten, Trunks and Android 18 easily defeat the Bio-Warriors, Jaguar becomes infuriated and reveals his greatest weapon: Bio-Broly. Maloja, the priest from Natade Village seen in the previous movie, reveals that Bio-Broly is a clone of Broly, made from a sample of Broly's blood. Broly breaks out of his containment capsule, and is drenched in Culture Fluid, turning him into a horribly deformed bio-mutant.

Super Saiyan Goten and Bio Broly go all out.

Bio-Broly was about to take Mr. Satan's life, but Trunks intervenes and saves him in time. Goten and Trunks then battle Bio-Broly head-on, and seem to be an equal match for him. Bio-Broly becomes a menace, and both Goten and Trunks become seriously pounded. During a part in the movie, Bio-Broly is seen squeezing the life out of Trunks with his foot and Goten saves Trunks just in time by punching Bio-Broly in the face. Goten and Bio-Broly then began to fight in the air Goten seen leading the fight and beating Bio-Broly until Goten states that his arm hurts, and Bio-Broly takes advantage. Trunks spills Culture Fluid on Bio-Broly, which is supposed to melt him. Unfortunately, there is a fatal flaw in Trunks' plan; the Culture Fluid becomes more powerful and it starts to flood the entire island. Goten, Trunks, Krillin and 18 manage to get as many people as they can out of the lab.

Goten after leaving Jaguar's island.

Goten and Trunks discover that bio-liquid solidifies by touching seawater. Goten, Trunks and Krillin use a triple Kamehameha to blast a freak wave into the island, which solidifies all bio-liquid on the island. Unfortunately, Bio-Broly emerges as a huge sea giant. However, he turns to stone, having been drenched in seawater. Goten and Trunks blast the gargantuan Bio-Broly stone statue into bits, ridding the Universe of the last remaining trace of Broly for good.

Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn

Kid Goten and Kid Trunks as Super Saiyans in Fusion Reborn

A massive instability event occurs in Other World, which frees every single dead soul back into the living world, Earth. Among the several past villains that return to life is Friezahis army, and a character referred to as "The Dictator" (who is a clear parody of Adolf Hitler). While Goku, Vegeta, and Pikkon battle Janemba, a monster collaborated from all the impurities of bad souls, Gohan takes on Frieza, and Goten and Trunks take on The Dictator and his army. The battle between them and The Dictator's army becomes increasingly long, since reinforcements continue to pour into the city. Finally, Goten and Trunks decide to go Super Saiyan to defeat the army. When Goten and Trunks sense their fathers' fusion, they decide to fuse as well. Gotenks demolishes all of The Dictator's army with a Super Kamikaze Attack x 100 Ghosts in one shot. After a long day, Gohan, Goten, Videl and Trunks return home, with Goten and Trunks teasing Gohan and Videl for seeing them kissing after the battle.

Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon

In this movie, Goten appears throughout in the company of Trunks and seems intrigued by Tapion. In one scene, he is seen reaching out from under a BBQ, and taking food with Trunks to offer to Tapion. Goten fuses with Trunks to create Gotenks. Gotenks powers up to Super Saiyan 3 and fires Continuous Die Die Missiles at Hirudegarn. It appears that Hirudegarn has been killed or neutralized, but instead it evolves into an insect-like beast and delivers a fierce counterattack, rendering Goku, Gohan, Goten, Vegeta and Trunks unconscious.

Dragon Ball: Yo! Son Goku and His Friends Return!!

Goten and Gohan suggest the whole Son family goes to Mr. Satan's party.

The whole Son family goes to Mr. Satan's party, where they meet Vegeta's brother Tarble. Tarble tells them about two brothers who worked for FriezaAboand Kado. After pulling the two longest radish in a contest to see who would have to fight Abo and Kado, Goten and Trunks confronts the two brothers. While they are fighting, Goku says they are as strong as Frieza. When Abo and Kado fuse and form Aka, Goten and Trunks use the Fusion Dance to form Gotenks. After a brief battle, Aka starts to destroy everything, but he ends up being defeated by Goku.

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods

In Battle of Gods, Goten and Trunks fuse into Gotenks and battle the God of Destruction Bills along with the other Z Fighters.

End of Dragon Ball Z

Goten near the end of Dragon Ball Z.

As 10 years pass, Goten is trained by Goku, and then forced to enter in the 28th World Martial Arts Tournament. Because of a deal made between his father and Majin Buu to have Majin Buu pair Goku up with a poor village competitor,Uub, he also ends up being paired up with Majin Buu for the tournament. While searching out for Kid Buu's reincarnate before the drawups, Goten also ends up setting eyes on a homosexual competitor named Otokosuki, and becomes disturbed at Otokosuki's attempt at flirting with him, commenting in response to Trunks' comment that all the fighters seem normal, except possibly Otokosuki. When expressing irritation that he has to fight Buu, Trunks tells him that it was the luck of the draw, to which Goten ends up jokingly repeating that statement to Trunks upon learning that Trunks ended up being paired up with Otokosuki, as well as Trunks' extreme discomfort of this because of the latter's sexuality and advances towards him. Due to Goku and Uub's departure, the tournament is cancelled, and Goten and Pan decide to fight to entertain their family and friends, with Pan emerging as the victor (Goten allowing Pan to win). Goten in the end of Dragon Ball Z does not exactly look like Goku anymore because his hair changes but he continues to retain Goku's facial features. Though it is the same at the front of his hair, the back of Goten's hair has shown to have grown slightly. Goten also wears the a similar outfit with the exception of removing his long sleeve blue shirt from his gear and wearing a longer orange top.

Goten vs. Pan

Goten was intended to fight Majin Buu at the tournament's line up, but due to Goku and Uub wrecking the arena, the tournament was cancelled. In the last few moments of Dragon Ball Z, Goku approaches Goten and Trunks and tells the two that he will be leaving to train Uub and for both Goten and Trunks to continue their training. Goku states that in the future, Uub would be looking at the two Saiyans (Goten and Trunks) for guidance.

Dragon Ball GT

Search for the Black Star Dragon Balls

Goten on the telephone.

In Dragon Ball GT Goten has a girlfriend named Valese. Later on, he was supposed to aid Goku in the search for theBlack Star Dragon Balls along with Trunks, but he was left behind in the Black Star Dragon Ball hunt when Pan went aboard the spaceship which should have carried him. But an eager Pan hit the launch button before Goten could get on board. Goten was spending time with his girlfriend Valese when Baby arrived on Earth.

Baby, the evil parasite


Before Goku, Trunks and Pan's homebound trip back to Earth with the complete set of seven Dragon Balls, Goten encounters the parasite Baby on Earth, and is forced to fight him. Goten has the upper-hand, but Baby manages to cut Goten's left arm. When Goten tries to destroy Baby with a Kamehameha, Baby liquefies himself and invades Goten's body via the cut in Goten's left arm, taking advantage. Continuing in his search for Vegeta, Baby Goten returns to Capsule Corporation, where he encounters Bulma, Chi-Chi, Videl and Gohan, who are unaware that Baby has taken control of Goten. Sensing Gohan's superior strength, Baby makes plans to transfer himself into Gohan. Baby Goten punches Gohan, but the others shrug it off as sibling rivalry, and Chi-Chi requests that they "take it outside".

Super Saiyan Goten possessed by Baby.

Once in a secluded place outside, Gohan reveals that he knows Goten has been possessed, and Baby Goten launches an offensive against him, injuring and cutting Gohan. Not wanting to injure Goten, Gohan refuses to fight back, but is forced to transform into a Super Saiyan to ward off Baby Goten's attacks. Baby uses the opportunity to transfer himself into Gohan's body via the cuts on Gohan.

Soon after Baby in Gohan's body attacked Vegeta, the possessed Goten appeared and helped Baby to take control of Vegeta's body.

Gohan and Goten appear at their house and they start to fight Goku and Pan right away. Goten and Gohan power up to Super Saiyans so that they could force Goku to fight them. Gohan even promises to kill Pan, and he knocks her out. This makes Goku mad, and he starts to fight at full power, but just before he launches his Kamehameha wave at Goten and Gohan, Mr. Satan and Majin Buu show up and explain what has happened. After being revived by the Sacred Water, Goten helps restores Goku's Super Saiyan 4 powers, along with Gohan, Trunks and Pan. Soon afterward, Goku finally defeats Baby, and Goten assists in evacuating the Earth before its destruction (due to negative energy from the Black Star Dragon Balls, which had been used by Baby to create a new Planet Plant).

Super 17, The Ultimate Android

Goten attacks the Saibamen.

Goten is seen in a restaurant with Valese when an interview with Mr. Satan shows up on a television in the restaurant. Mr. Satan states that he is going to retire. Goten comments on the interview, stating, "And as long as I don't enter, I won’t have to take his place" (meaning the tournament would be a breeze for him, and he can surely become champion if he competes). Goten is seen in the city with Valese, and as soon as the villains from hell appear in the city, Goten, along with the rest of the gang, fight the villains that escaped from Hell. Most of these fights are easily won by the Z Fighters. Immediately after destroying the villains, Goten, Gohan, Trunks, Vegeta and Majuub team up to try and take down the powerful Super 17. They attack altogether, but cannot take down the Android, even in their Super Saiyan forms. Goten is then seen, when Old Kai is explaining to Goku about the negative energy of the Dragon Balls. When Goku decides to fix the problem at hand Goten and Gohan both wish to help their father, but Goku insists he needs to do it on his own.

The Shadow Dragons

Goten and Gohan both attack Omega Shenron.

Goten (along with Majuub) helps to save his father's life during his battle withSyn Shenron. The Z Warriors then appear ready to fight the Dragon, but Goku has a better idea. Goku asks for Goten, Trunks and Gohan to give him their Super Saiyan energy, while Majuub tries to hold off Syn Shenron. Goten, along with Trunks and Gohan, helps to restore Goku's energy during his fight with Syn Shenron. Goten, Trunks, and Gohan try to help Goku and Vegeta fuse by holding off Omega Shenron. They succeed, and Goku and Vegeta fuse intoGogeta. Later on, Goten watches as Omega Shenron attempts to destroy Goku and Vegeta and says, "I can't take it anymore.". He goes to help, but is stopped by his older brother Gohan.

Goten with his mother, saying that Goku will comeback later.

Later on, when Goku is presumed to have been killed by Omega Shenron, Vegeta decides the Earth's best bet is for him to try and defeat Omega Shenron while everyone else escapes. Before sending them off, Vegeta requests that Goten, Gohan, and Trunks continue the fight if he fails. The three half-Saiyans say goodbye to their families and decide to go back to help Vegeta in the fight. They are all easily defeated, but they do succeed in distracting Omega long enough for Goku to charge his Universal Spirit Bombwhich destroys the Shadow Dragon. Goten is last seen taking his mother back home after the fight and telling her his father will probably come back when he gets hungry. Goten is the only warrior who seemed relaxed and confident that Goku would return, unlike the other warriors. At this point, Goten has developed a father-son relationship with Goku based on trust, understanding, and faith.

Dragonball Zeron

Xicor saga

Goten at the beginning of DragonBall Zeron

Goten is one of the first characters shown in Dragonball Zeron, as he is shown in college, in Gohan's lessons. He is still dating Valese, as they are still friends even in class. Goten is Great Saiyaman 3, however sometimes he may be a bit lazy. However Gohan let's Goten take care of business, as he let's Goten skip school.

Goten as Great Saiyaman 3.

Goten as Great Saiyaman 3 goes to where the bank robbers were, however Papayaman already took care of the job. Goten upset flies and wonders around, and he also sees a newspaper showing the hero rankings, which shows Hercule Satan as ranked 1, Papayaman as ranked 2, and Great Saiyaman 3 ranked 100. Goten more upset wanders around, and sees 2 saiyan spacepods land. A person that looks like Goku comes out of one, and out of the other one comes a Supreme Kai. The man that looked like Goku confronted Goten, and Goten thought it really was Goku. However he was evil, as he attacked Goten with an enormous energy blast, and critically injures Goten. Gohan showed up.

Of all the Superheroes, Goten is ranked 100th.

Goten was damaged badly, which got Gohan angry. Gohan asked the man who he was, and Xicor replied by saying, I am the son of Goku, we are half brothers, I am Xicor. Xicor came with the West Supreme Kai Lila Cold, and Lila Cold tells Gohan she is Xicor's mother. This triggers a bit of Gohan's true potential, as his tail comes out. Just then, Vegeta and Trunks come by to help Gohan. Vegeta turns into a Super Saiyan 4 and starts fighting Xicor, but Xicor seems to dodge all his attacks, and manages to have the advantage in the battle. Gohan thinks that Goku left them because Goku wanted a new and better life, and Gohan sees Goten laying wasted, all these thoughts running in Gohans head triggers his inner potential, and Gohan too becomes a Super Saiyan 4, and charges at Xicor, punching him and actually hurting him a little bit. Gohan and Xicor then fight it out, however Gohan's new powers weren't enough to defeat Xicor. But then, Kibito Kai shows up with the repaired Z Sword, saying that Kibito Kai knows how to seal Xicor inside.

Goten encounters Xicor.

Kibito Kai also states that West Supreme Kai was his elder sister who was thought to be killed by Majin Buu thousands of years ago. West Supreme Kai says that she did not die, and was in space, but was not dead. She then states she was forgotten, and she states King Cold's father found her and raised her as a daughter.

Goten (Great Saiyaman 3) is almost killed by Xicor.

That is how she was associated with the Cold family, and she is Frieza's and Cooler's mother as she married King Cold. Kibito Kai can use energy waves to move Xicor toward the Sword Gohan was holding. Gohan was healed by Kibito Kai, thus giving him his energy back. Even Vegeta got his energy back, and the both were at it. Vegeta was about to recieve a critical blow, but Super Saiyan Trunks intervened to help his father. Super Saiyan 4 Gohan went up the sky and charged up his energy for a Kamehameha wave. Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta went up and charged his energy for the Final Flash, and Super Saiyan Trunks charged his energy up for the Double Buster.

Goten attacked by Xicor's blast.

The three hit their combined energy blasts, and managed to hurt Xicor, but Xicor blocked it and was too strong for it, and Xicor was still not down. At that moment Kibito Kai manages to catch Xicor in the blast, but Xicor is too hard to move.

Gohan, Trunks and Vegeta come to Goten's aid.

Just then, Gohan takes the Z Sword and hits Xicor, sealing him inside the sword. Lila Cold (West Supreme Kai) angrily attacks Kibito Kai and starts fighting Gohan and Vegeta. But then, Kibitokai get's up and grabs Lila Cold, and then uses instant transmission to go to a far away vacant planet and self-destruct, killing both of them together and destroying the planet. Kibito Kai manages to be able to go to The Supreme Kai planet, and then Old Kai tells Gohan and the others that Xicor would only be sealed for six months. Gohan then remembers a story Goku once told him when he was a kid, where Goku tells Gohan that Goku stopped to a planet before coming to earth from planet Yardrat a long time ago, he met a women named Princess Lila who gave Goku lots of foods, which made him unconscious, and when he was unconscious, the Princess took his blood and went away, and the planet was just a fake. Goku said that then he made his way to Earth after that. Gohan then went into the Bulma's plane to get everyone recovered. Goten was recovered as well. In the ship, they discuss of a way Goku could be brought back to Earth, however Old Kai tells them that Goku was in a realm which even Supreme Kai's could not connect to, but he states Goku became one with the dragonballs, and can be brought back if 7 super saiyans hold the 7 stones prepared to be made into dragonballs. Vegeta states that there were only 4 Super Saiyans on Earth, but just then, Goten and everyone else witness Pan and Bulla become Super Saiyan. However Vegeta states that they needed one more.

Goten and Trunks go to Planet Namek and call out Porunga to restore the Earth from the damage made by Xicor.

Goten warns Trunks about Broly.

Goten and Trunks later on leave for Planet Namek, to use the Namekian Dragonballs and the Namekian Dragon Porunga for their wish. First they wish for all good people that died during the fight to be brought back, then they wish for the Earth to be repaired from it's damage done. The two first wishes were successful. For the third wish, Trunks decides that they should bring back Broly, however Goten refuses as he knows what Broly is capable of as he once fought Broly. Trunks says it will be fine, and does so by wishing Broly back to earth. Broly is brought back to earth, and Vegeta finds him only to engage in a Super Saiyan duel. Goten and Trunks come in their light speed spaceship to earth, to fuse and become Gotenks to stop the fight between Vegeta and Broly. Broly becomes a Super Saiyan 3, creates a portal and goes elsewhere. Goten and Trunks seperate. Vegeta tells Goten and Trunks that they do not need Kakarot.

Goten and the Z fighters witness Goku turn into a Super Saiyan 5.

However just then, Trunks from the future arrives and becomes the seventh Super Saiyan, and helps bring Goku back using the Dragon stones. Goku returns and promises his family he is never going to leave them again. Goku then has lunch with his friends and tells them his experiences, and also tells them that Xicor is not his son, but his clone created from his stolen blood sample. Goku trains Gohan and Goten for the final fight. In the final fight, Gohan, Goku and Vegeta fight Xicor in their Super Saiyan 4 forms, and fight an even battle, but do not defeat Xicor. Goku then transforms into a Super Saiyan 5 and amazes everyone. Goku defeats Xicor, but Xicor had a lot left in him. Xicor went up the sky, and launched an evil Kamehameha at Goku, but Goku clashed it with his Silver Kamehameha, overpowering Xicor and sending him in the blast to far out in space, defeating him once and for all.

Tyrant saga

After the battle with Xicor, peace returned once again for Earth. Goten joins Goku and his friends in helping create the new Dragonballs and the new Dragon named Shenron junior. Through the help of Goku's Dragon powers, Dende was able to create a dragon that can make 5 wishes. They make their first wish and bring back Piccolo. However Piccolo says that they are in grave danger, and go in the hyperbolic time chamber for training for a day. After defeating Xicor, it seemed he was no more, but he still lived, in space, but he was unconcious after his defeat, and was badly damaged. King Cold reunites with his brother Yougirou in hell. King Cold, Frieza, Cooler, Cell and Yougirou go on a mission in hell, where they find a sacred place where drinks called the Suta, which give you incredible powers. King Cold and his army of tyrants steal them, and defeat the Hell bodyguards. They then communicate with the Lord of the Universe, Lord Zeron, who they were working for. Lord Zeron helps them escape Hell through a portal, and also gives them life. Lord Zeron expected something other then the Suta, which does not work for people of his race, and Lord Zeron demanded Goku brought to the planet. King Cold drinks the Suta, and gains incredible demonic powers, and also takes a sword out of his mouth, which gave him power. King Cold, Frieza, Cooler, Cell and Yougirou head towards earth, but they find Xicor and put him in a rehabilitation chamber. King Cold gives Frieza, Cooler, Cell and Yougirou a Suta drink as well. They land on a city, and the tyrants get out, and drink the Suta that they had. They drank them.Frieza could morph into anything he wants, and was much stronger. Cooler can turn into a dragon and gain more strength and stealth, and was much stronger. Cell turned orange, and had two distinctions on his head. Yougirou changed, as he was able to use Ice, and had the ability to create anything out of ice, ice which can't be destroyed by anything, not even energy blasts. The Z fighters could sense their energy from the city. Frieza and Cooler go to a city nearby and destroy it, alerting the Z fighters. Piccolo gets out of the chamber in one day, and goes with Vegeta to face Frieza and Cooler. Yougirou and King Cold come to the lookout to capture the dragonballs. Sensing that Vegeta and Piccolo might not be enough, Gohan later goes with them. Piccolo fights the new morph powered Frieza, and Vegeta fights the new dragon Cooler. Gohan was on his way there. Piccolo goes to fight Frieza through Frieza's portal, and the portal closes. Vegeta and Cooler start fighting. They start an even battle, but Cooler's energy keeps on rising. Vegeta then transforms into a Super Saiyan, and takes the advantage of the fight, however Cooler can now use strong fire, which Vegeta must dodge. Vegeta then transforms into a Super Saiyan 2, taking more of the advantage and gaining more speed over Cooler. Vegeta and Cooler then fight an even battle, however Cooler is also able to create meta Coolers, and Vegeta realises he must end the fight right away, so he transforms into a Super Saiyan 3. Vegeta now even stronger beats up Cooler easily, but Cooler transformed into his final form, releasing his inner wings, and transforming into dragon Cooler. Cooler now can breath more fire, and he is much more faster. Cooler and Vegeta had an even fight, but Cooler manages to hurt Vegeta, breaking his left hand. Vegeta had his left hand, but it was useless now, and Cooler was now stronger than Vegeta. Just when Cooler was about to use the death beam, Gohan turns into a Super Saiyan and kicks Cooler in the neck, but does not do anything. Gohan transforms into a Super Saiyan 2 and tries to take Cooler on, but to no avail, as Cooler easily smashes Gohan onto the buildings. Cooler punches Gohan in the stomach countless times, and keeps on punching. Gohan was damaged badly, however Gohan then awakens all his inner potential, as he becomes Mystic Gohan once again. Gohan was now stronger than a Super Saiyan 3, and turned the tables on Cooler, defeating him so badly that he asked for forgiveness. Gohan unlike his father refused, and was about to attack, but Cooler then released his final form dragon Meta Coolers, and 1000 of them. They all attacked Gohan, but Gohan was too good for them, as he was able to dodge their every move. Gohan used his new technique in his Mystic form, the Kamehameha barrage, which was used to completely destroy all the dragon Meta Coolers, but they were able to regenerate, however Gohan was able to quickly go behind the real Cooler manipulating them, and Gohan used a Super Kamehameha wave to kill Cooler. Piccolo and Frieza also have a strong fight, and Piccolo becomes a Super Namek 3, an ancient Namek form that no Namek had ever reached for a long time. Piccolo in the form manages to defeat Frieza and escape the dimension, however Frieza escaped in the brink of death as well, and Frieza did not die. Meanwhile on the lookout, Goku turns into a Super Saiyan 4, and duels with King Cold in an even battle. Goku used his dragon staff, and King Cold used his demonic sword. Both of them collided. Goten and Trunks fused to fight Yougirou, and Gotenks was created. Gotenks fought Yougirou in his normal form, and it seemed Gotenks was getting the upper hand. Goku seems to gain the upper hand on King Cold, but King Cold hit Gotenks real hard, sending him down the skies off the lookout, and was going to crash, and Goku had to go and save him. Goku saved him, but was distracted, and King Cold and Yougirou had already left with the dragonballs, and King Cold used instant transmission to get to the spaceship. Goku could not find the spaceship in time, and Frieza, King Cold, Yougirou and Cell had already escaped via light speed.

Zets tournament saga

After the fight with the tyrants, the Z fighters are telepathically messaged by none other than Lord Zeron himself. Lord Zeron proposes a tournament on his planet for Goku, and promises Goku that if he wins, they will stop being evil. Goku knew it was a trick, but accepted the offer. Piccolo stated that Trunks and Goten needed to watch over the Earth while they were gone, and Trunks and Goten did so.

Evil vs Evil vs Good saga

Goten and Trunks are enjoying a casual time on Earth while Goku, Gohan, Piccolo, Vegeta and Future Trunks were at Planet Zets. However, their break would be ended when Super Saiyan 3 Broly, Janemba, Dragon Cooler, Bojack, Gingalow, Bido, Gokua, Buujin, Zangya and Turles arrive on Earth and destroy central city. Goten, Trunks, Pan and Bulla would fly to get to the scenary, and eventually meet Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, Future Trunks and Piccolo who have come back from Planet Zets. They also learn that King Cold, Android Evolution Cell, Yougirou, Lila Cold and Morph Frieza have come to Earth, and have already started fighting Broly's gang for the reward that Lord Zeron would give the winner who brings Goku captive.


Goten vs. Trunks at the World Tournament.

Goten is far more powerful than Goku was at various stages of his life as a child, a teenager, and a young adult. Goten faced many powerful villains as a child due to his power and is usually the first to encounter Earth's threats in Dragon Ball GT. During the ten years between the Kid Buu Saga and the World Martial Arts Tournament, Goten spent most of his time being trained by Goku. When the 28th World Martial Arts Tournament comes around, Goten has a date, which Goku makes him cancel to enter the tournament. Goku asks Goten and Trunks to continue their training while he is leaving to train Uub. Both Goten and Trunks promise they will continue their training.

Comparing Goten to his friend Trunks in power has been the subject of much debate among fans over who is more powerful. In the few months prior to the World Martial Arts Tournament, Trunks trained with his father in the gravity chamber, while Goten trained in the woods with Chi-Chi. This leads to the speculation that Trunks may be stronger than is known. Although Goku states when teaching the two the Fusion Dance that Trunks is only slightly more powerful than Goten due to being older. However, when Goten and Trunks enter the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, Goten is shown putting forth more effort because his mother was killed by Super Buu, leading some fans to think Goten is stronger than Trunks, but both warriors by the end of their training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber are set equal in power, stated by Piccolo.

In Dragon Ball GT, Goten has grown into a young man, and has become more powerful. Goten's power is displayed during various sagas of Dragon Ball GT, like the Super 17 Saga where he destroys with no effort enemies that Goku and the other Z Fighters from Dragon Ball Z would struggle with at his age (such as Pui Pui and Android 19). Goten and Trunks seem to have their power levels as equals, due to Goten and Trunks requesting fusion through multiple moments in Dragon Ball GT. He has also helped in giving Goku his energy, along with the help of Trunks and Gohan during the Baby Saga.

In DragonBall Zeron, Goten is damaged by Xicor, and is unable to help Gohan, Vegeta and Trunks, however, Goten was badly damaged by Xicor, and was unprotected, while Trunks was protected by Gohan as Trunks fought alongside Gohan and Vegeta.


In Dragonball GT, Goten had only his Super Saiyan form, however in Dragonball Zeron it is said that Goten can turn into all the forms below.

Super Saiyan

Goten as a Super Saiyan when he was a child.

Adult Super Saiyan Goten possessed by Baby.

Goten gains the ability to transform into a Super Saiyan at a very young age, and is the youngest known half-blooded Super Saiyan in the series. Goten uses this transformation throughout Dragon Ball ZDragon Ball GT and DragonBall Zeron. He achieves the form while training with his mother, and he first transforms onscreen during his training with his older brother, Gohan.

Super Saiyan 2


Super Saiyan 3


Super Saiyan 4




Gotenks, the result of the fusion between Goten and Trunks.

Gotenks as an adult.

Gotenks is the fusion created when Goten and Trunks perform the fusion dance. Gotenks' power far surpasses either of the fighters' individual strengths. He attains the Super Saiyan and Super Saiyan 3 forms. When Goten and Trunks grow into teenagers and young adults they stop using this technique. In the Baby Saga in Dragon Ball GT, they are tempted to fuse into Gotenks to try and help their fathers, but they are told not to by Gohan. The Fused Warrior Gotenks resembles Goten slightly more than Trunks. Gotenks shares both Goten and Trunks special attacks, as well as their playfulness but Gotenks also has new moves that Goten and Trunks do not have such as Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack as well as Galactic Donut or Charging Ultra Buu Buu Volleyball.

Later, in DragonBall Zeron, Goten and Trunks fuse and form Gotenks in order to fight King Cold's younger brother Yougirou. This time Goten and Trunks were adults, thus making Gotenks an adult this time as well. Gotenks' personality had vastly changed as he is more mature, and more serious. Gotenks uses a Super Kamehameha as his signature move, and damaged Yougirou with it. Gotenks had not used his Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack, the Galactic Donut or Charging Ultra Buu Buu Volleyball. He has not turned into a Super Saiyan as an adult in the series either, however it is confirmed that he will go up to forms Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2, Super Saiyan 3 and Super Saiyan 4.
