|~ Goten's main quote.|
Son Goten is a supporting character in the Dragon Ball franchise. Goten is the second son of Son Goku and Chi-Chi, thus making him a Saiyan/Human hybrid. Due to his father's death at the hands of Cell, Goten was raised and trained by his mother and his elder brother Son Gohan for the first seven years of his life. He was best friends with Trunks Brief, the Saiyan/Human hybrid son of Bulma Brief and Prince Vegeta.
Goten is voiced by Masako Nozawa in Japanese. In English, he is voiced by Kara Edwards as a child and by Robert McCollum as a teenager. McCollum has also voiced Reiner Braun in Attack on Titan, Donquixote Rosinante in One Piece, Julius Novachrono in Black Clover, and Jellal Fernandes in Fairy Tail.

He's first introduced in chapter 230 of the manga, Goten strongly resembles his dad in appearance, with the same hair-style and similar clothing. He also strongly resembles his paternal grandfather in appearance. In chapter 324, the end of the series, Toriyama changes his appearance to avoid confusion with Goku and his paternal grandfather to include a shirt bearing his name, and a longer, shaggier hairstyle, while in Dragon Ball GT, Goten's hair was changed to a shorter, tall-spiky hairstyle resembling to Yamacha. Goten is trained by his older brother Gohan in preparation for the 25th World Martial Arts Tournament, which their father would be attending. During the training, Gohan discovered Goten could become a "Super Saiyan". He also possesses the Kamehameha, a technique that concentrates ki energy and is released into a powerful beam.
