Son Gohan is a hero of the Dragon Ball franchise. He is the eldest son of Son Goku and Chi-Chi, and he appears for the first time at the start of Dragonball Z. He is considered the deuteragonist of Dragon Ball Z, while Goku is the main protagonist and Vegeta is the tritagonist. He is a supporting character of its sequel Dragon Ball Super (as his role of deuteragonist is passed on to Vegeta).
He is voiced by Masako Nozawa in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Kyle Hebert in the English version of the anime.
While he is part Saiyan, Gohan in the beginning was shy and lacked the Saiyan battle spirit. It was during the time when he saw his father cornered by Raditz that he first unleashed his dormant power, showing that he only uses his strength to protect his loved ones. As time passed, Gohan grew to harness his abilities and turns out to be a very courageous warrior, assisting the Dragon Team in their fight against any threat.
Like Goku, he has a kind and gentle heart (as he can ride the Flying Nimbus without much difficulty). Gohan has a voracious appetite like other Saiyans. He is also generous, such as teaching Goten and Videl how to fly.
Gohan gets along well with others, such as forming a uncle/nephew relationship with Krillin, and developing a close bond with his mentor Piccolo. After marrying Videl and having a daughter, Gohan has proven to be a loving husband and father.
Powers and Abilities
Like most characters, Gohan has the ability to fly and can manipulate ki.
Being half-Saiyan, Gohan possesses more strength than any Human and can turn Super Saiyan and most of its following form
s. Aside from this, during his training with Piccolo before the Saiyan's arrival, Gohan has shown considerable skill in swordsmanship.
It was stated throughout the course of the Dragon Ball series that Gohan possessed bottomless power. That being said, his power makes him a noteworthy asset to his allies, occasionally becoming the team's champion, as he fought against the likes of Perfect Cell, Majin Buu, Broly, Bojack, among many others.
In his great-ape/Oozaru form, Gohan is a feral beast. This is a natural state for all Sayans that they use to devastate planets that put up fights against them. Their natural destuctive potential is increased twinty times with a massive strength, damage resitance and agility on top of their already super-human abilities in those areas. The state is triggered by light reflected in a full moon.
When seeking out the Namikian Guru to warn him of the danger to his people, the wise elder gave Gohan a power boost to help in the defence of his people. Upon placing his hand on Gohan's head, Gohan's power was unleashed - all the strength being held-back up to that point was brought to the surface without any adverse affects.
Gohan eventually excels to the level of Super-Sayan with training from his father. In this state he is twinty times stronger than he was originally, his energy projection has no limits and he is powered by his own rage.
Super Saiyan 2
In Super-Sayan 2 Gohan has excelled past what even a Super-Sayan can do. However in this state Gohan needs to strain to think clearly and a tranquil rage drives him.
Full Power is a term for when anyone fights at full ki - maximum spirtual energy reserves. If Gohan goes into any of his alternate forms at full Full Power, he can maintain the state for a massive amount of time.
Gohan's strongest stage is his Potential Unleashed. A boost given to him by the Elder Kai. In this state Gohan is the strongest a mortal being can possibly be. The process is temporary and takes days of meditation to achieve but in it, there is vertually nothing that can stop him.
