Dragon Ball Super, written by Akira Toriyama and illustrated by Toyotarou, is a sequel to Toriyama’s original Dragon Ball manga, and it follows the adventures of Goku and his friends during the ten-year time skip following Majin Buu’s defeat. In June 2015, it began serialization in Shueisha’s shōnen manga magazine V Jump. Viz Media publishes the manga in English, while Shueisha publishes it on their Manga Plus platform. One of the most important characters featured in the previous part, Dragon Ball Z, is Goten, the second son of Goku. While Goten did face one of the major foes, Majin Buu, in DBZ, did he face any other life-threatening situations in Dragon Ball Super? Will Goten die in Dragon Ball Super?
Goten is Gohan’s younger brother and Chi-Chi and Goku’s second child. He was born at late Age 767, about nine months after Cell’s defeat in the Cell Games Saga. Goten does not meet his father Goku until he is seven years old because Goku dies during the Cell Games, unaware that Chi-Chi is pregnant. Goten is not pushed as much in school as Gohan is and instead receives martial arts training from Chi-Chi. The reasons for the same are never fully explained, but it appears to be related to Goku’s death. Goten is an incredibly strong child, far stronger than Goku or Gohan were at his age.
Goten’s transformation into a Super Saiyan in the manga made him the youngest Super Saiyan ever at the time. When Gohan inquires about his transformation, Goten explains that he was learning Martial Arts from his mother when he accidentally transformed into a Super Saiyan, and she told him never to transform again. The ease with which he does so has sparked debate, given that it took years for Goku, Vegeta, and, to a lesser extent, Gohan to learn and master the technique.
Goten Being The Youngest Super Saiyan
Chi-Chi discovers Goten can become a Super Saiyan at the age of seven (the Dragon Ball Z: Buu’s Fury video game manual claims he was only three when he first went Super Saiyan), and he looks almost identical to Goku when he first transformed into a Super Saiyan. Chi-Chi told him never to transform again. The ease with which he does so has sparked debate, given that it took years for Goku, Vegeta, and, to a lesser extent, Gohan to learn and master the technique.
He also implies that his Super Saiyan transformation during his training with Chi-Chi was not the first time he went Super Saiyan, as he admitted he couldn’t remember his first time. Whatever the reason, Goten demonstrates extraordinary power at such a young age. Whatever the reason, Goten demonstrates extraordinary power at a young age, rapidly increasing his strength. Goten was childhood friends with Bulma and Vegeta’s son Trunks, with whom he would play “fight games.” This significantly increases their respective strength when compared to other Human-Saiyan hybrids seen at that age, and both became Super Saiyans at a young age.
In Future Trunks’ timeline, Goten does not exist. Goten was born in late Age 767 in the Main Timeline, which means he was conceived about three months before the Androids appeared. Goku died six months before the Androids appeared in Future Trunks’ timeline, so Goten was never conceived.
Will Goten Die in Dragon Ball Super?
Yes, Goten dies in Dragon Ball Super. Firstly, Goten dies in Dragon Ball Z in Majin Buu Saga when Kid Buu blows up the Earth. Goten, Trunks, Gohan, Piccolo, and the other survivors die, but he is revived along with the others killed by Buu using the Namekian Dragon Balls. Goten, Trunks, Gohan, and Piccolo are then seen helping Goku with his Super Spirit Bomb. In Dragon Ball Super (Golden Frieza Saga), Goten is killed when the planet explodes, but Whis uses his Temporal Do-Over to undo the damage, thereby reversing Goten’s death. Goku tells Goten everything that happened while they were at the Capsule Corporation after killing Frieza, and he later attends Bulma’s party with his friends and family.
As a child, Goten was quite powerful, even before his brother or father attained their Super Saiyan status. Goten’s Super Saiyan strength was such that when he sparred with a Super Saiyan Gohan, he was able to cause some trouble for the latter, with an astonished Gohan remarking on how strong the boy was. Piccolo was later taken aback by Goten and Trunks’ power after witnessing them transform into Super Saiyans.
Goten was slightly weaker than Trunks, as admitted by Goten and noted by Goku when he was teaching them the fusion technique and told Trunks to lower his ki a little to match Goten’s. This was due in part to Trunks being one year older and naturally displaying a little more strength as a result. Piccolo had stated that after training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, he and Trunks had gained immense strength and that their power levels were exactly equal.
Goten rarely fights without Trunks by his side in Dragon Ball Super, and they usually fuse into Gotenks. Goten, like Trunks, is kept out of battles due to his habit of charging in headfirst without thinking. While he is still incredibly powerful for his age, his strength is insufficient to face any major threat. Goten and Trunks both stopped training but resumed after learning about the Tournament of Power.
