Overview[edit]
Overview

Adult Gohan is designed to be a strong character, words from the developers themselves. Equipped with muscular long limbs that grant him fantastic normals both quick and wide, Son Gohan has huge reach and damage. Possessing a very unique mechanic in his Potential Unleashed Install, Adult Gohan gets stronger as the match progresses. Each use of his 1-bar Super unlocks various upgrades along the way; many of them include seemingly eternal blockstrings ripe with stagger potential, buffs on all special moves with significant properties, and devastating frametraps using mediums create eruptive damage output.

Simple, yet with a tremendously high skill ceiling, Adult Gohan is for players who want to seek how much of themselves they can express through a character, and one that offers near endless space to improve.


"I have to get stronger if I want to protect what's truly important to me."
Lore:After the battle with Cell, Son Gohan/Sun Wufan grew into a kind young man and a brilliant scholar, happily married to his high school sweetheart Videl Satan (the daughter of Mr. Satan), with a young daughter named Pan. Even though he does not train with the same fervor and passion as Goku and Vegeta, his hidden potential (after being released by the Elder Supreme Kai) still remains; when it comes to blows, Gohan can still fight with the best of them.
Voice:Japanese: Masako Nozawa English: Kyle Herbert
Playstyle
DBFZ Adult Gohan Icon.png Adult Gohan is a crafty, pressure-style character who powers-up to create an overwhelming presence that smothers his opponents.
Pros Cons
  • Great Buttons: Fast and long range normals, especially in his mediums that can enable big punishes frequently by utilizing frametraps.
  • Long Blockstrings: Blockstrings can be extended with 3L and Machine Gun Kick, enough to sufficiently recharge assists during staggers or gaps.
  • Extremely Solid Pressure: 5L and j.L can threaten a 50/50 after j.236H with an assist, and 2L is a unique +0 button that can both stagger and start a frametrap.
  • Fast-Fall: j.2S is a blinding Fast-Fall that amplifies his mix-up game and enables grounded assist extensions.
  • Reversal: Jet Uppercut is a DP, in a game where meterless reversals are few and far between. The light version is an unscaled anti-air that starts a lot of TODs.
  • High Solo Damage: Combos using j.236L and j.214H give him some of the highest solo damage available.
  • Assist Variety: A is the fastest hitting DP assist, and B gives high blockstun with ample time to hit confirm.
  • Potential Unleashed: 1-Super has low damage, and the short range can make it whiff on some DHCs.
  • Micro Management: Players need to be cognizant if Adult Gohan is currently powered-up or not.
  • The Need to Level-up: Although unlikely, if Adult Gohan somehow cannot level-up during the entire game, he misses out on some combo, pressure, and neutral tools.
  • Ki Blast: 5S is nice, but the lack of traditional ki blasts is a hole on an arguably fundamental part of the neutral.
Potential Unleashed Install
Every time Potential Unleashed is used, Adult Gohan levels up, improving his abilities and damage. He begins every match at Level 0, and can gain up to 7 levels. Potential Unleashed bonuses remain for the rest of the match.

Level 1 Moveset Changes

  • Attacks more rapidly
  • Medium and Heavy versions travel further when forward input is held.
  • Heavy version is active for twice as long and deals twice as many hits after hitting the opponent.

Additional Changes

  • Medium Jet Uppercut gains 1 additional hit per level from Level 1 to 3.
  • Heavy Jet Uppercut gains 1 additional hit per level from Level 1 to 7.
  • All attack's damage is increased by 2% per level from Level 2 to 6. Total damage increased is 10% at level 6.
  • At Level 7, Adult Gohan can chain any normals into any other normals ("Reverse Beat").

  • Really short range.
  • First hit has small hitbox.

One of the best 5Ls in the game due to it's fast startup and non-suspecting low-hit property.

Everyone has gotten hit with this move.

5LL 100*4 All - 9 1{(2)1}*3 17 -2 -
  • Mostly combo filler.

Can be a good meaty against a delay tech. After a safe jump off a sliding knockdown, continuing to mash light (5LL) can catch mashing or put them on block.

Does less damage and has worse scaling than the move it copies.

5LLL 450 All - 6 2 20 -6 -
  • Equivalent to 3H, though doesn't have Head invul.
  • Lauches on hit.
  • Level 7: If 3H has already been used in a string, this attack will not come out and the autocombo ends at 5LL. If 5LLL has been used, 3H cannot be used in the same string.
5LLLL 450 All - 7 3 13 0 -
  • Can be used to reset pressure due to it having the same frame advantage as 2L.

Unlike other autocombo normals, 5LLLL and 2L can be used in the same string, giving him fantastic pressure capabilities.

700 All - 9 4 20 -8 -
  • Fantastic range.

Large normal that covers an extraordinary amount of space relative to how fast the startup is, and is an amazing whiff-punish. The range can also be a downside as it's pretty punishable if Adult Gohan whiffs himself.

Unlike most of the cast who preserve their 5M to allow jump cancels from 2M, you can use this 5M much more liberally as 3H is also a jump cancellable combo launcher.

500 All - 8 3 13 0 -
  • Fairly disjointed hitbox.
  • The only +0 button in the game that can be true-stringed into from the ground.

Far reaching and being +0 encourages strong stagger pressure.

Along with the fair pushback, it has the ability to potentially make his mediums frametrap for big punishes.

  • Smash hit launches higher with more hitstun.
  • Puts Adult Gohan in the air, true blockstring into j.236X.

Great anti-air and offensive tool on block compared to other 2Hs, as it leads into pressure with j.236X.

  • Pulls back and fires a Ki blast.

Useful to disengage and return to neutral, although locks Adult Gohan in place for a while and can lose bad to an instant superdash. Use it only when your opponent won't anticipate it.

Has enough hitstun to combo into SD in the corner for the universal Leg Loops version.

  • Available at Level 1 Potential Unleashed.
  • Holding L adds extra hits.

Good blockstring filler, great stagger/pressure reset tool with being -2 on block and can be shortened/extended. Is also a good meaty against a delay tech.

Scales subsequent damage pretty bad after a light starter because of its many hits, and some combos would do more omitting it entirely.

  • Launches on hit.
  • Jump cancellable on hit.

Extremely handy combo filler while possessing an abnormally high angle. Decent hitstun and jump cancellable means this is basically a second, better 5M for combo purposes. This is also an anti-air, and can be used in the place of 2H, but must be ready to combo after landing it immediately, as there isn't ample time to hit-confirm before the opponent techs out.

Can be used after j.H in the corner for a tiny bit more oki time, and also help with assist extensions on the ground like with beams post j.H. Not too strong as a standalone mix-up tool since it's reactable, but it gives another layer to Adult Gohan's already strong pressure, especially if your opponent is respecting said pressure. You can also DP right after if you know your opponent wont react instantly/mash.

  • Upon using, Adult Gohan jumps up a bit before falling down, leading into further combo extensions.
  • Always moves Adult Gohan forward, holding {4} and {6} can shorten/lengthen the distance respectively.
  • Performs 10 (19) kicks until he touches the opponent, at which point he will do it again, ensuring that the damage is always the same.
  • Smash on the last hit, and causes a wall bounce.

Extremely active, spectacular against Super Dash and Raw Tag. Eating a raw j.236H equals to losing 40% HP with a standard post-j.236H combo. On block, Adult Gohan stays airborne, and can sneak in a j.L that is susceptible to anti-airs, but can be countered alternatively with an OS reflect.

  • Smash hit causes a sliding knockdown.

Level 0: j.S > j.214L in the corner is the primary way of utilizing this in combos.

Level 1: j.2H > j.214L gets Adult Gohan a sliding knockdown anywhere.

  • Smash hit causes a sliding knockdown.
  • Switches sides anywhere outside of the corner.

Grants more okizeme than the light version but is trickier to combo into, and requires the combo to not to be too high up.

  • Smash hit causes a ground-bounce sliding knockdown.
  • Switches sides anywhere outside of the corner.

Level 0: j.S > j.214H allows the ability for Potential Unleashed to hit and consequently level up anywhere on the screen from Level 0.

Level 1: Allows him to extend into advanced combos by inputting j.M/j.L right before landing, virtually becoming an extreme form of a rejump combo.

  • Receives the damage buff from Potential Unleashed.
  • Head invulnerable.
  • Fastest assist in the game.

Like all DP assists, used for post-Superdash pressure and shenanigans off aerial movement.

Can also be used as an (somewhat expensive) anti-air if you think your 2H will be counter-hit and you don't want to block/reflect.

  • H+S version can be held to stack up to 7 Ki Gauges, but L+M version only ever consumes 1 Ki Gauge, meaning you can't DHC into him and dump bars.
  • Damage bonus from Potential Unleashed is applied to this super during the freeze as Adult Gohan reaches the next level(s).
  • Each bar adds 250 more to the base damage.
  • Minimum damage: 20%. Is not affected by the damage buff per level.

Because of the short recovery, Adult Gohan can possibly combo post-Super, or even set up solid post-Super oki with help. More notably, it can be used to DHC into from other supers that are still active. For example, Potential Unleashed lets Adult Gohan recover fast enough to set up for safejump 50/50s if he DHCs in during an ongoing level 1, like Kid Buu's Pearl Flash, Vegeta's Galick Gun, or Jiren's Colossal Slash. Important note, he must DHC in right at the moment when the other character's super had just been activated to enable the okizeme.

  • Minimum damage: 70*24 (1680).
  • Hitbox can increase/decrease depending on who is on the team, but damage stays the same.

Leaving Adult Gohan pretty close to the opponent and being around +40 after hit, you can go for Superjump > IAD > High/Low for a relatively ambiguous 50/50 mix.

(Mostly Cosmetic): If Gotenks is on his team, Adult Gohan will perform it solo. If Gotenks is not on his team, Goten will come out to help. If Gotenks is not on his team, and SS Goku is on his team and is not on screen from an assist or Ultimate Z Change, Goku will come out to help. If Adult Gohan swaps bodies with Ginyu, he will only ever do the solo version.
