Date of Death:
Goten's appearance as a child is very similar to Goku's childhood look, including messy, unkempt hair, same eye color, lighter-pale complexion and a playful face. Goten is known for looking almost identical to his father as a child. When not fighting, he wears a blue sleeveless changshan with a green trim and a lavender long sleeve shirt underneath with white folded sleeves and a white sash tied around his waist which it was concealed beneath his changshan, lavender Chinese pants with white folded sleeves and black Kung-Fu shoes. Goten also wears a similar orange gi to Goku's, minus the kame symbol along with a dark blue long-sleeved undershirt and black training shoes with dark blue shin guards.
In Dragon Ball Super, Goten wears his Orange Gi without the blue undershirt. He also wears blue armbands, which he previously didn't and his hairstyle still resembles that of his father. When not fighting, he wears a blue sleeveless changshan with a green trim and a lavender long sleeve shirt underneath with white folded sleeves and a long red sash tied around his waist which it was concealed beneath his changshan, lavender Chinese pants with white folded sleeves and black Kung-Fu shoes.
His appearance drastically changes as he grows older, towards the end of Dragon Ball Z. Goten's hair grew, so that he would not be mistaken for Goku and is seen with a shaggier hairstyle as such and also wears an orange Gi similar to what Pan wears at the 28th Tenkaichi Budokai.
In Dragon Ball GT, his hairstyle becomes spiky, straight and tilted. He begins to look like his brother Gohan as in contrast to Goku. In the Black Star Dragon Ball Saga, Goten wears a green long-sleeved shirt with a yellow T-shirt underneath and wears purple pants and golden boots just like the ones Trunks wore. Later in GT, he wears a white long-sleeved shirt with a purple T-shirt underneath and wears purple pants and golden boots.
In Dragon Ball SF, Goten wears a Purple long sleeved shirt and wears blue pants and golden boots. In the 32nd Tenkaichi Budokai Saga, he wears a Blue long-sleeved shirt and wears light brown pants and golden boots. When fighting, Goten wears his Orange Gi without the blue undershirt similar to his Gi in Dragon Ball Super.
As a child, Goten is a fun-loving and kind-hearted like his father. However, thanks to his mother's structured upbringing, he tends to show more common sense and proper manners than his father did as a child (even in some cases as an adult). While still being forced to study hard like his older brother by their mother, having mellowed out following Goku's death, Chi-Chi allowed Goten to have more freedom to explore his own interests than Gohan did growing up; Chi-Chi even took it upon herself to train Goten in the martial arts. This allowed him to develop love for play-fighting and bug catching.
He is also somewhat mischievous, due to being influenced by his best friend Trunks and joins him in their many antics. Between Trunks and himself, he is surprisingly the voice of reason, though he usually goes along with the former's ideas. Goten is also well mannered, as he always bows before he faces someone in a fight. He looks up to and greatly admires his older brother Gohan Goten also shows great love for wild animals, a trait obviously passed down from his father Goku, as he is seen often getting distracted from training by them on more than one occasion. Goten also shares the typical Saiyan appetite, like his father and brother.
As a teenager and an adult, Goten is still kind-hearted and considerate of other people, but is seen to be more mature. He settles down to live more or less as a normal teenager, worrying more about girls and bikes than fighting. However, if a threat appears on Earth he fights along with the Z Fighter when he needs to.
BackgroundEditGoten is the second son of Chi-Chi and Goku, and younger brother to Gohan. He is born in late Age 767, roughly nine months after the defeat of Cell in the Cell Games Saga. As Goku dies during the Cell Games, unaware 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 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. Goten transforming into a Super Saiyan made him the youngest Super Saiyan ever at that point. When Gohan asks how his transformation 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.
Dragon Ball ZEdit
Great Saiyaman Saga, 25th Tenkaichi Budokai and Babidi SagaEditGoten's first appearance in the series is when he is seven years old. He is first seen wecloming his older brother, Gohan home. Discovering that his father, Goku, will be returning to Earth for a day to compete in the 25th Tenkaichi Budokai, 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. Gohan trains Goten in fighting and flight, along with his friend (and later on, wife), Videl.
Goten meets his father Goku for the first time on Papaya Island at the 25th Tenkaichi Budokai. after Goku points that the child looks exactly like him. In the manga, he is rather shy upon first meeting his father, but in the anime, he quickly 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 Saiyan warriors 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. After Gohan is attacked, and the Z Fighters 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.
Majin Buu, Fusion and Kid Buu SagaEditGoten 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 then blows himself up, hoping that will finish him, but fails, as Majin Buu regenerates himself.
Goten is taken to The 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. Goten angrily blames Goku for Gohan's death (unaware that Gohan is actually alive) but is convinced to cooperate to defeat Majin Buu and avenge his brother. 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 as he promises to take care of Chi-Chi before going back to Other World.
A day later, with Goku in Other World, Piccolo teaches the boys the rest of the Fusion 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 in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber after Piccolo informs Goten that they will bring his mother back to life with the Dragon Balls. They fuse and create the warrior Gotenks, who fights Majin Buu twice, almost defeating him. Before he can make a move, Gotenks is absorbed by Super Buu along with Piccolo after Gohan arrives from the Sacred World of the Kai 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 embraces him. He watches as his parents reunite and hug each other after Goku tells Chi-Chi he wants to live with her and their kids as a family of four now Goku has been brought back to life again by Old Kai. Goten later attends a party with his fmaily at Capsule Corp. in West City.
Wrath of the Dragon (Movie)EditMonths after the defeat of Kid Buu, 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 later fights with the Z Fighters against Hoi and Hirudegarn in West City.
Later during the fight against Hirudegarn, 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.

Goten and his family goes to Mr. Satan's party, where they meet Vegeta's brother Tarble. Tarble tells them about two brothers who worked for Frieza, Abo and Kado. After pulling the two longest radish in a contest to see who would have to fight Abo and Cado, Goten and Trunks confronts the two brothers. While they are fighting, Goku says they are stronger than Frieza. When Avo and Cado fuse and form Aka, Goten and Trunks use the Fusion Dance to form Gotenks.

He also arrives with his mom and brother when he told her that Goku was planning on going with Whis to train. Goten tried to convince her to let Goku go, but Chi-Chi told Goten to stay out of it.
Later, when Jaco arrives on Earth to warn Bulma of Frieza arriving on Earth for vengeance, he and Trunks come into contact into him when he is looking for Bulma. They then touch his skin and face to make sure they are not tights and a mask with Goten accidentally taking off one of the wireless radios on his ears. They then play around with his ship, where Jaco encourages them to play, which leads to them accidentally closing the hatch and crashing it into the pond resulting in them being sent to their rooms as punishment.

When Goku shows desperation to fight with Monaka, Goten suggests that Monaka could have the ability to "transform". Trunks then whispers something in Beerus' ear. While Goku was being distracted, Beerus dons the life-size Monaka costume created by Mr. Satan, and fights with Goku. Eventually, the battle is over, and the situation ends on a good note as Goku never realized that Monaka was an amateur and is even more motivated to train after fighting with him.
One day, Goten is eating dinner with his parents at home, when Goku shows signs of sadness and fatigue. Goten and Chi-Chi wonder if Goku is sick, or even dying.

Goten and Trunks then make their way inside the back of Monaka's truck, having fun with the items present in there. When they blow up a blow-up doll, the force calls the truck to bounce off the ground, closing the door and trapping them inside.

They then wait for Monaka, who immediately climbs in his truck and flies off into space with the two boys still inside.

Goten travels with Goku as the latter picks up some bean daifuku from Whis, and then the two arrive at Capsule Corp. Once he finds out that Bulma is pregnant, Goten asks Trunks if he would prefer his sibling to be a boy or a girl.

Goten wants to train with Vegeta but he says no and is asked to help Trunks set up the baby room. Later While Goku, Gohan, Supreme Kai and Hercule are discussing the tournament, Supreme Kai mentions Goten and Trunks as possible fighters mentioning their power at such a young age. Goku says no and mentions they would become a liability as they are too young and like to rush in head first into every fight. When the baby is born, Goten tells Trunks he can train with a brother and a sister would be cute, but Trunks favors a brother. While Trunks is disappointed the baby is a girl, Goten remarks how cute she is and stays at Capsule Corp for a couple of days to help Trunks take care of Bulla.

While searching out for Kid Buu's reincarnation before the draw ups, 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. Goten and Pan decide to have an exhibition match to entertain their family and friends, with Pan emerging as the victor.

After the incident with Goku, he is supposed to aid his father and Trunks in the search for the Black Star Dragon Balls, but he is left behind in the Black Star Dragon Ball hunt when Pan goes aboard the spaceship which should have carried him and hits the launch button before Goten can get on board. Goten is spending time with his girlfriend Valese when Baby arrives on Earth.
Before Goku, Trunks and Pan's homebound trip back to Earth with the complete set of seven Black Star 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-possessed 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-possessed Goten punches Gohan, but the others shrug it off as sibling rivalry, and Chi-Chi requests that they take it outside. Once in a secluded place outside, Gohan reveals that he knows Goten has been possessed, and Baby-possessed 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-possessed Goten's attacks. Baby uses the opportunity to transfer himself into Gohan's body via the cuts on Gohan.

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).
Some time after in Age 790, Goten is seen in the city with Valese, and as soon as the villains from hell appear in the city After a portal between Earth and Hell is formed by Android 17 and Hell Fighter 17. 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.

- Fusion Dance – A short series of poses that are performed by two characters of equal power levels and roughly equal size. To correctly perform the Fusion, the fusees must strike the poses in a perfectly symmetrical image of one another.

If the dance is performed incorrectly, it will result in an obese or skinny character who is much weaker than either fusee individually

- Assault! – First, Goten charges at the opponent and punches them away. Then, he flies up into the air and charges down at the opponent head-first at top speed.

Super SaiyanEditGoten gains the ability to transform into a Super Saiyan at a very young age, and is the youngest known Super Saiyan. He could even transform before learning how to fly. He is first shown in the form while training with his mother. Unlike his brother and father, Goten was instinctively able to manifest this form without any extreme emotional distress nor dire need, so much so that he didn't even realize the change until Chi-Chi pointed it out.
Super Saiyan - Full PowerEditUnlike Goku and Gohan, Goten quickly mastered the form. This reduces his emotional build-up and energy consumption while in said form to near-nothing and can therefor maintain it for as long as desired without any strain on his body.
Mighty MaskEditNot an actual form, Mighty Mask is Goten and Trunks working together whilst wearing the costume of the fighter Mighty Mask.
Infected TuffleEditDuring the events of the Baby Saga in Dragon Ball GT, Goten is possessed by Baby, and then later by a regular Tuffle parasite. While under Baby's control he is named Baby Goten. In this state he becomes part Tuffle and is much more malicious, especially to Goku for being a Saiyan. While retaining all his original memories and individuality, he sees himself no longer as part human or Saiyan, but rather proudly considers himself a Tuffle. This dark influence also causes his energy blasts to become red.
Infected Super SaiyanEditWhile possessed by Baby and later by a Tuffle parasite, Baby Goten is capable of transforming into a Super Saiyan at will during the Baby Saga of Dragon Ball GT.

After ascending into a Super Saiyan 4, they fuse and battle against Ark much later.
