Gotenks is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball Z anime and manga. Gotenks is one of two fusions performed through the Fusion Dance by Goten and Trunks. Gotenks is seen a few times in Dragon Ball Z and appears in the Dragon Ball Z movies, Fusion Reborn and Wrath of the Dragon. His most major role, however, was in the Buu Saga. Since Majin Buu was extremely powerful and too dangerous for anyone on earth, Goten and Trunks were taught the art of Fusion Dance. The dance is a special type of fusion ability, a connection through the fusers' fingers. The fusers need to perform a special type of pose, then connect their index fingers evenly to produce a perfect fusion. Gotenks was a fusion taught to Goten and Trunks by Goku, and later trained by Piccolo. Image File history File links This work is copyrighted. ...

Appearance and personality

Gotenks is a mixture of the two young half-Saiyans, Goten and Trunks. He wears a vest, one which all characters created by the Fusion Dance have. Around his waist is a sash, and he wears white silky pants, dark shoes, and black wristbands. His hair style is a mixture of the hair of both Trunks and Goten, with the majority of it (specifically, where it is black) being similar to that of Goten. The sides and back of his hair is purplish and silver, similar to Trunks' hair, and the style of it is similar overall to Goten's while in Super Saiyan form.

Gotenks is a very young, but powerful, Z Fighter. As a result of the Fusion Dance, used by Goten and Trunks, Gotenks's personality is a composite of the negative components of Goten and Trunks's personalities. Gotenks often displays Trunks's arrogance with Goten's whiney-ness, and has been told that he shares more of a resemblence to Vegeta's personality then anyone else. But similar to Gogeta and Vegetto, Gotenks is quite cocky and rebellious. He thinks he is in total control, and has everything in his hands. However, Gotenks' power can easily rival any individual character in the series, making him one of the most powerful characters in the whole series. He is able to make a few transformations, increasing his power and making him more confident and deadly in battle. He is quite creative and original, and creates a broad, yet ridiculous array of his own attacks. However, some of his creative techniques do inflict potent damage, such as his Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack, or his Galactic Donut attack.

History

Goten & Trunks successfully perform the Fusion Dance
Goten & Trunks successfully perform the Fusion Dance

Gotenks is first seen within the Buu Saga. It was suggested that he be created in response to the destructive forces of the powerful Majin Buu. Goten and Trunks, Gotenks' fused counterparts, were trained and taught how the fusion technique works. After learning the procedures and steps that needed to be taken for its success, Goten and Trunks performed the fusion, however they failed not once, but twice. Because the Fusion Dance is a thirty-minute period, one hour was wasted on Gotenks' fusion. This was usually due to the fact that one of the counterparts, either Goten or Trunks, did something incorrectly while performing the dance. Image File history File links 238-20. ... Image File history File links 238-20. ... Majin Buu is a fictional character in the manga Dragon Ball and the anime Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball GT. He is the last major villain to appear in Dragon Ball Z and the most powerful of the three major Dragon Ball Z villains (others being Cell and Freeza). ...


Eventually, Goten and Trunks performed it properly and created the super strong fighter named Gotenks. Piccolo and others have said he has immense strength, but it was questioned as to whether or not he could fight Buu. When Gotenks was first fused, he felt quite confident of his new power, and even jumped to a conclusion that he was strong enough to beat Fat Buu without being a Super Saiyan. Unfortunately for him and the rest of Z-Warriors, Fat Buu swiftly takes care of Gotenks in a heartbeat. Gotenks retreats, and realizes that he's still too weak for Buu. Piccolo suggests Gotenks de-fuses, and re-fuse again, only this time to be fused with Goten and Trunks as Super Saiyan. Broly as a Super Saiyan. ...


Trunks and Goten transformed themselves as Super Saiyans. However, because the Fusion Dance requires equal, if not almost identical power levels of each of the fused individuals, Trunks had to lower his power level to match Goten. The two young Saiyans then fused and became Super Saiyan Gotenks. The new Gotenks decided to test his new strength and speed, by racing around the world. From watching his speed and childish acts, Piccolo analyzed Gotenks' new strength and realized he is incredibly faster than before. After taking swift laps around Earth, Gotenks thought he was definitely ready for Buu. However, Piccolo insisted that he rest, and let Trunks and Goten get their strength back from all the hassle of actually pulling off the Fusion. Saiyan, or Saiya-jin (サイヤ人) in the original Japanese anime and manga, refers to a fictional race from the Planet Vegeta in the manga Dragon Ball/Dragon Ball Z and the anime Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball GT. The name is an anagram of yasai, which...


During that time, Super Buu had been born. He rushed to Kami's lookout to fight his promised opponent, Gotenks. Goten and Trunks were not ready at the time, so they entered the Hyperbolic Time Chamber to prepare. During that time, they were able to train as Gotenks for a few weeks, making him stronger and allowing him to reach the level of Super Saiyan 3. Super Buu and Piccolo eventually arrived with Goten and Trunks prepared to fight. Buu allowed them to fuse, and much to Piccolo's dismay, they fused at base rather than as Super Saiyans. After failing to do any damage with an array of enigmatic attacks, Gotenks transformed into a Super Saiyan. The Hyperbolic Time Chamber (The Room of Spirit and Time), from the manga Dragon Ball/Dragon Ball Z and the anime Dragon Ball Z, is a fictional place located on Kamis Lookout. ... Broly as a Super Saiyan. ...


After a brief struggle, Piccolo stands by horrified that Gotenks is losing even at Super Saiyan. Gotenks then tried out his "Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack" which makes an exploding ghost copy of himself. After doing a massive amount of damage with attack multiple times, Buu was still not even winded. At that point, Gotenks was planning to look cool by transforming into a Super Saiyan 3 late into the battle when everything seemed lost. Piccolo had no idea of the transformation, so he believed everything truly was lost. He then decided to take a risk, and destroy the entrance and only exit out of the Hyperbolic Chamber, so none of them could get out. This failed as Buu became so angry at the fact that he would no longer have any sweets, he ripped a hole in the dimension. This allowed him to leave Gotenks and Piccolo behind in that dimension.


While Buu began to eat all the people on the lookout, Gotenks and Piccolo tried how Buu got out. After witnessing Buu getting angry, Gotenks and Piccolo began to get angry and scream aloud just like what Buu did to escape. Unfortunately, their power levels were too low to rip a new dimension. They tried many times, but came up with no results. During that time Gotenks had defused and refused many times, though on Earth only a few minutes passed due to the time difference. Eventually Gotenks decided to transform into a Super Saiyan 3 despite his desire to save it for later. He easily replicated Buu's escape by screaming himself. Outside, he started the battle again, fueled by the rage of his "mothers", Chichi and Bulma, being killed.


Gotenks unveiled some new techniques and put more power into some old ones. Eventually Piccolo realized that Buu was actually retaining damage, and congratulated Gotenks on his fine achievements. Gotenks the finally decided to get serious, but this came too late because as Gotenks was about to deliver the final blow, he powered down to his original form, losing a great deal of strength. Buu then attacked, but before Gotenks defused before he could kill him. Gotenks later refused to fight Buu again after he was coaxed into fighting, but it turned out to be Buu's plan to absorb him, so he could fight the much stronger Gohan. After Gotenks defused inside Buu, he never appears again. He was only mentioned twice as an idea to help battle Kid Buu and Yi Xing Long during GT, but neither happened due to certain circumstances.
Yi Xing Long (Japanese: Kanji: 一星龍, katakana: イーシンロン , Rōmaji: Īshinron, English: One-Star Dragon) (FUNimations dub: Syn Shenron/Omega Shenron) is a dragon-like villain in the anime series Dragon Ball GT and the last of the seven Evil Dragons to appear. ...


Forms and transformations

Gotenks is first formed in the Buu Saga when Goten is 7 and Trunks is 8, so the techniques devised by him are child-like and are often more about the performance of the move, rather than the effectiveness. During his fight with Super Buu, Gotenks shows his immaturity when he does not transform into a Super Saiyan initially, in order to make the fight more dramatic and historic. This showy behavior ultimately costs him the fight. However, Gotenks does have the ability to go up to Super Saiyan 3, which has not been seen in any other human/Saiyan hybrids. The following are the transformations/forms of Gotenks.

These forms were the results of Goten and Trunks failing to do the dance correctly. They were much weaker than the complete fusion and were incapable of fighting. Both were very out of shape and easily tired.

This stage of Gotenks is much more powerful than his normal form, and is formed in two ways. He can transform to a Super Saiyan when fused, or he can be fused as a Super Saiyan. During this stage he gains a slight muscle increase, and his hair is completely golden. Though he fights Super Buu in this form, it still was not enough to stand up to him, although it could have been possible due to the fact that, in the manga, Buu wouldn't have been able to regenerate after the Super Kamikaze Ten Ghost Final Strike if they had "vaporized the ashes with ki blasts" like Piccolo said.

This transformation is Gotenks's most powerful form. He looks very similar to Super Saiyan 3 Goku: Long hair, no eyebrows, golden aura, and increase in muscle. Gotenks is one of the only two individuals who has achieved the rare Super Saiyan 3 transformation. While transformed, Gotenks is able to stand up to the powerful Super Buu.


Special abilities

Gotenks' childish personality causes him to create many, many attacks, some of which are nothing special, while some deal hefty damage. Most of his attacks are only used once. He tends to give very basic moves complicated names.


Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack

Gotenks' signature move. Gotenks expels ghost-shaped bubbles from his mouth, that imitate his likeness/personality, and are generated with ki. They are touch sensitive and explode when they touch anything, including each other (they had once high-fived each other and exploded). When Gotenks's power level increases, the explosive power of this attack also goes up. Gotenks can choose the quantity of ghost at his command. He has previously released 10 individuals for one attack, and also used a Super Ghost Balloon which broke down into 14 ghosts. Each ghost appears to have a mind of its own, and can behave much differently than other ghosts. However, they do obey and follow Gotenks' instructions.

Galactic Donuts/Cosmic Halo

This is another powerful gripping technique Gotenks performed. He performs this attack by raising his index finger into the air and circling it above his head to create a yellow ring of energy. Once created, he transports the circular energy ring over his opponent, then lowers it and homed it on them. This results in the opponent being gripped and trapped within the circular attack. Gotenks attempted to encircle Super Buu in a yellow ring of ki. Super Buu escaped easily though. In the videogames Budokai 2 and 3, Gotenks succeeds to capture his opponent, and finishes it of by firing a massive Kamehameha, or squeeze three of them on the length of their body, and in Budokai Tenkaichi and Dragon Ball Z: Super Sonic Warriors 2 he causes the rings to self-destruct. Gotenks can manipulate this attack, by making mini versions and fire multiple rings, or increase the size. In the English version, this attack is called "The Cosmic Halo."

Saiko No Kogeki

Gotenks launching the Saiko No Kogeki

The Saiko no Kogeki technique involves firing a powerful beam of Ki from the mouth, which explodes upon striking the target. It is the same as the technique used by Nappa during the Saiyan Saga, as well as other characters like Reacoom, Dodoria, and even Majin Buu. The attack injured Super Buu to an extent, but luckily for him he was able to regenerate. Gotenks can only seem to perform this, and certain other powerful attacks, as a Super Saiyan 3. In the Dragon Ball Z Budokai series of games, the technique is called the Victory Cannon.

Buu Buu Volleyball


Gotenks once succeeded in capturing Super Buu into a volleyball made of several Cosmic Halos. The attack consists of capturing a target in many Cosmic Halos, trapping them inside a sort of cocoon and use the ball like a volleyball. Gotenks forced Piccolo to play with the ball, and then Gotenks followed up with an attack he called Spiking Buu Ball Slam which was essentially one final hit to the ball, before Buu broke out. In Budokai Tenkaichi 2, they called it Charging Ultra Buu Buu Volleyball.


Renzokou Shine Shine Missile


(Continuous Die Die Missile or Rapid Missile fire in English) Gotenks uses this attack against Buu outside the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. Gotenks performs this attack by firing dozens of continuous Ki blasts, but are a lot more powerful than normal ones. In the manga, when attacking Buu with this attack, Piccolo warns Gotenks to stop before he destroys the Earth, hinting the power in this technique.

Kamehameha


He tries to use this, but before it is launched his thirty minutes were up. When he is preparing to fire the Kamehameha, his finger are curled under and directly together, unlike other users like Goku who spaces his hands apart and allows his finger to be spread out.
