|~ Chi-Chi concerned about Goku|
Chi-Chi is the love interest and later wife of Goku from the Dragon Ball series. She first met Goku when he had to get the Bancho Fan for Master Roshi. Later on, she fought him at the Martial Arts Tournament, when he forgot the promise. She married him at the end of Dragon Ball and together they had two sons named Gohan and Goten.
She was voiced by Mayumi Shō in season 1-2 and Naoko Watanabe in season 3-9 in the Japanese version, and by Andrea Libman as a child, Laara Sadiq as a adult in DBZ and Lisa Ann Beley as a adult in the movie in Ocean Group dubs, Laura Bailey as a child, Cynthia Cranz as a adult, Monika Antonelli as a child in episode 202 in the Funimation dub, Katie Rowan as a child, Carol-Anne Day as a teenager, Debbie Munro as a adult in the Blue Water dubs, Sharon Mann in AB Groupe dub, Michelle Ruff in Bang Zoom! dub and Mitch Frankenberger Pellicer in Creative Products Corporation dub in the English version.
Chi-Chi is first encountered by Goku as a child when he was first collecting the Dragon Balls, one of which was held by her father, the Ox-King. The Ox-King intended to reserve the Dragon Ball as a dowry for his daughter and Goku agreed to be engaged to Chi-Chi in exchange for the ball. Goku, however was unfamiliar with what phrases like "dowry" or "engaged" meant but simply continued on his quest to collect the Dragon Balls. Towards the final arc of the series, once Goku has grown into a young-man and defeated King Piccolo, he enters the World Martial-Arts Tournament for the second time. Goku would soon find that King Piccolo had reincarnated himself upon his death as his own offspring, Piccolo Jr., however Goku faced an even more dangerous foe in the contest before reaching his final match with Piccolo Jr., a fully grown Chi-Chi. Goku, barely recognized Chi-Chi at first, but she announced who she was as their match started and told him she intended to make him pay for never returning for her. Once Goku realized what he had promised Chi-Chi and the Ox-King he swore to her that he would make it right and marry her as soon as the Tournament was over. Convinced that Goku genuinely had not known
what he had promised prior and in light of his new oath Chi-Chi instantly forfeited the contest so Goku would win all the sooner and marry her. After his fight with Piccolo and finishing the match Goku wasted no time and immediately flew off with Chi-Chi, ending the series with their marriage. By the start of Dragon Ball Z Goku and Chi-Chi were not only married but had their son Gohan, of whom Chi-Chi was fiercely protective.
Dragon Ball Z
In the first saga of the series following the ending of the original Dragon Ball, Chi-Chi, Goku and Gohan have settled in their home on Mount Paozu. After the father-son duo retrieved ingredients for Chi-Chi to start preparing their lunches, she informs Goku that today was the day that he was to meet up with Krillin, Bulma, and Master Roshi at Kame House. But before they leave, she gives Gohan his signature hat, complete with the four-star Dragon Ball (the ball that Goku's Grandpa Gohan gave to him before he died and who Gohan was named after).
Chi-Chi would not appear until later after Raditz was defeated at the hands of Piccolo and Goku's team-up and the death of her husband, what with Krillin struggling to break the news to her after she was demanding to know where Goku is. It wasn't until after Master Roshi told her that she fainted in disbelief.
After having driven Vegeta off of Earth, Gohan meets back up with Chi-Chi and informs her that he and Goku are about to embark on a mission to Planet Namek and use the Dragon Balls there to revive their friends, to which she obliged before reminding him that by the time he gets back, he has to focus on his education.
She wouldn't appear until after Planet Namek got destroyed by Frieza and after Goku killed the galactic emperor by turning Super Saiyan. After reviving Yamcha, Tien, Chiaotzu, and Krillin, Chi-Chi reinforces Gohan to be educated again.
After Future Trunks appears and informs Goku and the rest of the Z-Fighters about the arrival of powerful androids that would exterminate the population on Earth as well as giving Goku his heart medication to combat the virus he would soon get, Chi-Chi explains her disappointment that while she's happy to have Goku back, he needs to learn how to drive and get a license, as well as a reluctant Piccolo that Goku ends up recruiting into this escapade.
Following this, Goku informs Chi-Chi of the incoming attack of the androids and pleads with her to let Gohan train with them to make sure the world stays intact, as well as making sure that there is still a world for all them to live in and for Gohan to pursue his studies. After much coaxing, Chi-Chi allows it, but once the androids are taken care of, Gohan stops fighting and gets back to studying.
Three years later, following Trunks's warning, Goku and the others set out to confront the androids, but Goku unfortunately undergoes the sensations of the heart virus and has to leave mid-fight against Androids 19 and 20 in the wastelands. With Yamcha having to be the one to escort him back to Kame House, he and Chi-Chi gave him the medication and wait there until he recovers. It wasn't until after Trunks and the Z-Fighters meet Imperfect Cell and the other androids and discover the androids want to kill Goku following the orders of Dr. Gero that Goku finally recovered. Happy to see her husband alive and well, Chi-Chi bids him good luck as the pure-hearted Saiyan uses Instant Transmission to find the others, recruit Gohan, Vegeta, and Trunks, and proceeds to train with them in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber at Kami's Lookout in order to reach a higher level of Super Saiyan.
Once achieving a higher level of Super Saiyan and staying in that form to get even stronger, the Son family proceeds to prepare for a picnic now that Goku can drive. As Chi-Chi reminisces about the times when she and Goku were together as kids, Gohan proceeds to give them some alone time, which proves to be a wise decision as he receives a call from Bulma to help Android 16, who has made a full recovery at Capsule Corp.
All of this soon came to a screeching halt when the dreaded day of May 26th came, where Goku, Gohan, and the rest of the Z-Fighters were about to challenge Cell in the Cell Games, to which Chi-Chi begged them to come home safe and sound. Unfortunately for her, Goku sacrificed himself to take out Cell as he was about to self-destruct and take the planet out with him, using Instant Transmission and brought him to King Kai's planet where Cell exploded. After Gohan defeated Perfect Cell with the power of the Father-Son Kamehameha, Chi-Chi crumpled to her knees, unable to comprehend that Goku had died again. While she was glad that the Earth was still intact, she orders Gohan to continue his studies, to which he obliges and undergoes a few years in homeschool before transferring to Orange Star High School. One year after Goku's death, she gave birth to Goten.
Majin Buu Saga
Following the 7-year timeskip, with Goku announcing to everyone that he would be allowed to come back to Earth for a single day to compete in the World Martial Arts tournament, she expresses her delight that she would be able to see her husband again and that if they win the prize money, they would be financially stable again.
The day after, she meets Videl, who was insisting that she was only there to have Gohan train her how to fly and get stronger as payback for keeping Gohan's superhero identity, the Great Saiyaman, a secret. She and Chi-Chi got off to a rough start before eventually warming up to each other and the latter dropping her jaw after learning that Videl has over 50 rooms in her house, as well as her own cook.
During the matches on the day of the World Tournament, Chi-Chi sat with Bulma, Yamcha, Puar, and Oolong in the bleachers cheering for their friends to win and punched the mother of Ekosa, the latter of which was Goten's opponent during his match, for riling her and Bulma up. She was also the first to react to Bulma fainting after Vegeta blew up the arena while he was under Babidi's spell. Chi-Chi and the others would later appear at Kami's Lookout and would have to bid Goku goodbye as he departs from Earth since his time was up.
From there, following Majin Buu, being split from his good side and evil side and the evil side emerging triumphant by turning the good version into chocolate and devouring him, becoming the even more powerful Super Buu, Chi-Chi and the others watched Goten and Trunks fuse to become Gotenks to challenge the new menace. However, thanks to Gotenks wanting to prank Piccolo and the latter destroying the only way out of the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, Chi-Chi and everyone else outside got turned into chocolate and eaten by Super Buu. In heaven, she, Bulma, and Videl meet the reformed Dabura, and together, they try to search for Gohan, but to no avail.
Chi-Chi would later be revived with the aid of the Namekian Dragon Balls and help give energy to Goku, who was forming a Spirit Bomb to defeat Kid Buu. After successfully defeating him, Chi-Chi hugged Goku, the former now happy that the three of them could finally be a family again.
She would then appear again in the epilogue, joining the party at Capsule Corp, celebrating that there were no longer any evil threats to worry about for the time being.

Skills and Powers
Chi-Chi is the sixth strongest full-blooded human on the face of the planet right behind Krillin, Tien Shinhan, Uub, Videl, Yamcha and Chiaotzu but surpassing Master Roshi despite not possessing any super human abilities or ki manipulation. Chi-Chi has extraordinary speed and strength and has been trained as a competent fighter by her father the Ox-King. She was likely the strongest contestant in World Martial-Arts Tournament when Goku first entered as an adult, even with Piccolo Jr showing up to combat Goku, though Goku was able to persuade her to forfeit by promising to make good on their engagement once he won the contest. Chi-Chi strongly emphasizes the importance of learning and school work for her sons and is more than willing to help them in their studies, resulting in an expansive literary repertoire. As Chi-Chi is focused on living a normal life and having a close family, she almost never engages in battle or employs her abilities, however when that family is in danger she will go into full attack-mode, such rages are feared deeply by every-one from Goku, to Gohan, to Piccolo. After reading Goten's mind, Baby became convinced that Chi-Chi was the single most terrifying human on the face of the planet. Chi-Chi can not fly, or use energy techniques, this limits her in speed and range and as a result even when she is ready to employ her full potential the greatest thing working against her is her inability to actually get within striking distance of super-human enemies. There have been a couple of occasions where Goku accidentally injured Chi-Chi through normal contact with her simply by not knowing his own strength, such as knocking her through a wall just by patting her on the back or launching her into the sky just by trying to lift her above him with joy. Chi-Chi has easily survived Goku's accidental assaults and the experiences have only served to make Goku. Gohan and Goten terrified of what she might do in retribution.

- A submission from New York, U.S. says the name Chi-Chi means "God".
- Although she made been generally liked by fans in later adaptations many fans criticized her character following Dragon Ball due to her being hellbent on Gohan's studying to be a Scholar, and completely ignore the constant dangers even going as far of calling Goku a "no-good karate bum" to the point where several wanted her to be written out of the series.
