Pre History

The eldest son of Son Goku and Chi-Chi, Son Gohan was named after Goku's adoptive grandfather. As a young boy, he was kidnapped by his evil uncle Raditz. Following Raditz and Goku's deaths, he was trained by Piccolo so that he would be strong enough to hold his own against Nappa and Vegeta, who were on their way to Earth. As powerful as he was, Gohan was also a bit cowardly, in comparison to his father at that age.

He and Krillin held off Nappa and Vegeta until Goku could return from the dead. Nappa was beaten by Goku and killed by Vegeta for his failure. Gohan, Krillin, and Goku took on Vegeta, and the Saiyan Prince retreated.

To resurrect Piccolo and the other warriors of Earth, Gohan, Krillin, and Bulma shuttled off to Namek while Goku recovered. Piccolo was resurrected with the Namekian Dragon Balls, and they were joined by Vegeta, as they all fought against the alien tyrant Frieza. Vegeta and Krillin would die, pushing Goku to become a Super Saiyan and defeat Frieza.

Whilst Goku and Vegeta are training in separate parts of the cosmos, Gohan leads the charge against Garlic Jr. and his henchmen. Thanks to some deceitful trickery from Piccolo and Krillin, Gohan is able to force Garlic Jr. to open the Dead Zone, after which Gohan destroys the Makyo Star, sending Garlic Jr. packing back to the void.

Upon Goku's return, Gohan went to the Room of Spirit & Time to train with his father for the battle against Cell. While there, he achieved Super Saiyan status himself. Goku kept pushing Gohan further to a new level, but he could not continue on.

Goku is the first to fight in Cell's "Cell Games" tournament, but actually dropped out so that Gohan could fight. Cell, interested to see Gohan's full potential, unleashed Cell Jr.s to attack the Z Warriors, then crushes the benevolent Android 16's head. Enraged, Gohan bursts into Super Saiyan 2 status, becoming the first in the series to achieve this level of power. He makes quick work of the Cell Jr.s and takes to fighting Cell. As a gambit, Cell initiates his self-destruct sequence. Goku takes him to King Kai's planetoid before he can blow, thus dying in the process.

Sadly, Cell regenerates and returns to Earth, killing Trunks. A distraught Gohan is having a tough time overpowering the re-energized Cell, until the spirit of his dead father encourages him. Gohan vanquishes Cell with a Super Kamehameha.

Seven years later, Gohan has been studying to be a scholar as his mother wanted. Chi-Chi has given birth to her and Goku's second son, Goten, and Gohan has started going to high school. Realizing that Satan City is a dangerous place, Gohan requests a quick-change costume from Bulma so he can fight crime without fear of being noticed. His father's oldest friend obliges, and Gohan becomes the Great Saiyaman. His classmate Videl, who was Mr. Satan's daughter, became suspicious of Gohan, and eventually deduced that he was the Great Saiyaman.

A Tenkaichi Budokai (martial arts tournament) was taking place, and Videl implored Gohan to join. Goku was also coming back from the dead for one day to participate. During Gohan's match against Kibito, he is ambushed by Yamu and Spopovich, and has his energy drained. The duo were under the control of a wizard named Babidi, who had plans to use the energy to restore his father's creation, the demon genie Majin Buu, back to the world.

Babidi sent his enforcer, the brainwashed king of the demons, Dabura, to fight Earth's warriors. Gohan faced off against Dabura, but having slacked in his training, he was no match. When Buu was revived, and after he had killed Dabura, it was up to the East Kaioushin (Supreme Kai), current highest order God, and Gohan to defend against the genie. Gohan was severely injured and near death, but was restored by Kibito, who turned out to be the Supreme Kai's attendant.

Gohan went to the World of the Kaioushin to pull out the legendary Z Sword to defeat Buu with. Goku met them there, and tried training with Gohan. Unfortunately, Goku broke the sword, but it unleashed an older Kaioushin that was trapped within. This Elder Kai powered Gohan up to an amazingly immense level, giving him a power-up commonly known as the "Mystic" state. Gohan left to fight Buu.

As powerful as Gohan was, he was no match for Buu's trickery. Buu absorbed Gohan and took on his powers. Goku and Vegeta entered Buu's body to retrieve Gohan, Piccolo, Goten, and Trunks, but unfortunately all four of them were killed when Buu destroyed the world.

Following Buu's defeat, Gohan settled down and married Videl. Gohan became a research scholar for Capsule Corporation, and has a daughter named Pan.

The greedy impish Emperor Pilaf and his gang attempt to steal the Black Star Dragon Balls from Kami's Lookout, when Pilaf accidentally wishes Goku back into a child. Gohan is amongst the first to learn of this blunder. His pint-sized father, along with Pan and Trunks, head to Outer Space to retrieve the Black Star Dragon Balls, which had scattered across the galaxy and needed to be reunited within a year, old the Earth would explode.

When the three of them returned, a Tuffle parasite named Baby stowed away on their ship. Baby's first possessee on Earth was Goten, but when Baby realized Gohan was stronger, he moved on to possess him. Baby Gohan fought and defeated Piccolo, and it wouldn't be long before he moved on to the body he would settle in, Vegeta.

Baby Vegeta used the Black Star Dragon Balls to wish for his home planet to return. Following Baby's defeat, Earth's warriors would not have enough time to gather the balls again. Earth was completely evacuated except for one soul - Piccolo. Piccolo had chosen to stay behind on the Earth as it exploded, so that the Black Star Dragon Balls (which were created by the Namekian that would become Kami and later split into Piccolo) would be rendered inert, thus saving them from potentially harming the Earth again. Before his death, Piccolo telepathically spoke to Gohan. The Earth detonated, and Gohan's friend, mentor, and sometime surrogate father, was gone, never to be wished back.

Great Saiyaman is also known as Gohan (Teen)
