Overview

Teen Gohan is a surprisingly advanced character with stubby normals yet deceptively good neutral. Teen Gohan's goal is to get in the opponent's face using his myriad of specials and make them block Flying Kick, leaving Teen Gohan airborne to enable his fast mix-ups and pressure. Teen Gohan has very high damage and several combo opportunities thanks to his j.2/3S bombs, giving him loops and crazy corner carry. You'll be in awe at Teen Gohan's ability to drag the opponent from corner-to-corner while taking half their health in the process. Although he can struggle at the long range, Teen Gohan has above-average ki blasts, a lariat in 5-Hit-Combo to close gaps, and his notorious heat-seeking missile of an autocombo to immediately make the opponent block. Teen Gohan asks for a lot of execution to unlock his absurd damage potential, and a big part of his kit requires the player to know when and how to get in. If you desire a creative and very high execution character with remarkably powerful tools, there are few better answers than Teen Gohan.


"I don't really like to fight, but sometimes victory is the only option!"
Lore:Named in honor of his father's adoptive grandfather, Son Gohan/Sun Wufan is the firstborn son of Goku. Even as a young child, Gohan possessed hidden reservoirs of power that he could tap into when his anger is stoked. Young Gohan abhorred violence, but always came to the aid of his father and their friends when the need arose, eventually becoming the first to attain the state of Super Saiyan 2 during his battle against the villainous android Cell.

Playstyle
DBFZ Teen Gohan Icon.png Teen Gohan is a relentless fighter who makes up for his lack of range with explosive damage and mix-ups that subdue opponents quickly.
Pros Cons
  • Autocombo: Famously possesses the best 5LLL set in the game due to its functionality, versatility, mix-ups, and sheer range.
  • Power: Has some of the highest damaging and flexible combos in the game along with excellent corner carry using bomb loops, and extremely high meter gain.
  • Mix-ups: Autocombo/2H sets up 50/50s using medium or heavy Flying Kick when paired with an assist, and has amazing left-right pressure with IAD j.L.
  • Reversal: Super Dragon Flight is a DP in a game where meterless reversals are few and far between. The light version is an unscaled anti-air that starts TODs.
  • Ground Game: 5S are very fast ki blasts, 5LLL can anti-air opponents, and Teen Gohan also has a lariat in 5-Hit Combo that can lead to big damage.
  • Short Reach: Stubby normals (all except for 5LLL) require strong spacing awareness in neutral, and Gohan also lacks a beam property move.
  • Aerial Game: Although his j.L has an impressive hitbox, he lacks better tools to approach. His j.S has a bad angle, and j.236X can only be used defensively.
  • Needy: Needs assists for combo routes, 50/50s, and neutral in general.
  • Awareness: Teen Gohan's combo routes change greatly depending on where you are in the stage. Midscreen Bomb routes will drop close to the corner, and different delays on 5-Hit Combo can mean the difference between a corner combo and a drop.

5L
  • Advances forward.

Good reach for a 5L, will catch opponents after a blocked superdash.


5LL
  • Launches on hit.
  • Recovers in the air.
  • Only gatlings to 5LLL.

Be careful with 5LL as this and 5LLL are considered airborne and are 2H-able. Leaves Gohan high enough after the recovery to airdash over most crouching characters and cross them up.


5LLL
  • Tracks vertically to almost super jump height and has long horizontal range.
  • On hit, can sides switch mid-screen by delaying follow-ups.
  • Has head property.
  • On hit, slightly delaying superdash lets you switch sides.

Teen Gohan's infamous autocombo ender. This is a very useful tool in neutral, as delaying the hits will allow Gohan to float up further and catch opponents. Typically crosses up opponents trying to IAD over Gohan as well.

If blocked on the ground, Gohan can go straight into j.236M or j.236H for pressure. If blocked in the air, j.236L after will lock the opponent and follow them all the way down to the ground, where Gohan is still plus and can continue a blockstring after this.

  • Ki blast that explodes only when it touches the ground. The explosion also has Ki blast property.
  • Ki blast on the way down keeps grounded opponent standing, ground bounces airborne opponent. Explosion always launches.
  • 1S and [2]S leaps backward, 2S and 3S leap forward. Leaps keep all momentum if Gohan is also moving in the same direction.
  • Recovers in the air.

The directional input is what controls which way he moves. So if you tap 2 but hold S, he still moves forward. His j.2S also has similar quirk but with different directional inputs.

Most combo notations use 1S to refer to backward leap, and 3S for forward leap.

  • 236L/M on hit can press L/M/H for extra attacks. Each followup switches sides.
  • Doesn't have Head property.
  • All versions become more advantageous the further Gohan is, up to -1 on block at max range.

  • 236L reaches almost halfscreen.
  • Keeps grounded opponent standing.

  • 236M reaches almost fullscreen.
  • On block, can cross over crouching opponent. Can't steal the corner and doesn't work on big bodies.
  • On hit, sends the opponent flying.

If Gohan is pushing against crouching opponent in midscreen, this will hit from their back. With small bodies only standing next to them is enough, but bigger characters require forward momentum.


  • 236H is a tiny bit shorter than 236M.
  • On hit, automatically performs all followups. Stays same side, Smash on the last hit.
  • Smash hit wall splats, can followup with Super Dash for sliding knockdown.

In the corner, non-Smash hit can link into j.L, j.M and j.236L/H.

L Version
  • Sends the opponent behind Gohan.
  • Smash hit corner splats.

Only really useful if you use 236X when cornered, which will not happen often.


M Version
  • Sends the opponent in front of Gohan.
  • Smash hit corner splats.

In the corner, Smash hit can link into j.DR, non-Smash hit can link into j.L, j.M and j.236L/H. Vital to his corner combos and part of what gives him such high metergain and damage.


H Version
  • Immediately ends the sequence, compound damage from unused followups. E.g. if there's 3 followups left, it will do 550*2, 700.
  • Sends the opponent in front of Gohan.
  • Smash hit wall splats and can followup with Super Dash for sliding knockdown.

In the corner, non-Smash hit can link into j.L, j.M and j.236L/H. Mostly useful if you don't think you can make it to the corner off a stray rocket kick.

j.236H 80Γ—13 / 80Γ—13,900 All U1+ 9 {3(1)3}Γ—12 6 +1 -

All Versions
  • Upon using, Gohan pauses for a split second and starts a fall.
  • L version keeps all momentum, M and H always moves forward.
  • j.236M/H can be guard cancelled on reaction, but the resource trade will always favor Gohan.

j.236L
  • Hold down L, M, H to continue kicking until landing. Performs 3 kicks at minimum.
  • Very long landing recovery which can only be Super cancelled. Combos into both Supers at intermediate hitstun decay.

Depending on the height, Gohan will do an extra kick before landing even if no buttons are held to make it easier to combo afterward. Anti-airing someone with 5LLL can lead to plus frames by making them airblock this move.


j.236M
  • Performs 7 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. Smash hit wall splats, can link into 236M from midscreen.
  • Scales like a medium starter.
  • On hit, only recovers upon landing.
  • On block, Gohan will reposition himself to a fixed height.
  • Removes all other added landing recovery.

With Smash, this lets you link a 5-Hit Combo midscreen and a 2L in the corner for combo extensions. One of Gohan's main mixup tools (with the other being j.236H). There will always be a reflectable gap between 5LLL and j.236M, but opponents typically won't reflect out of fear of getting 2M'd and dying. Connecting this solo will let you backdash safely. With assists, this becomes a mixup tool between airdash j.L and land 2L, but some assists will have too much pushback for the low option midscreen.


j.236H
  • Similar to M version but with 13 kicks.
  • On hit, recovers in the air. Smash hit wall bounces.
  • Removes all other added landing recovery.

Plus on block, is a safejump set-up with j.L, and combos into 2M mid-screen for big damage. There is never a gap if cancelled from 5LLL, effectively removing the reflect mindgame entirely. Also Gohan's main tool to convert from an IAD j.L crossup.

214H 1000 / 1000,200Γ—6 All U1+ 9 3 29 -20 1-11 All

All Versions
  • The uppercut's first 2 active frames can be cancelled into Supers, since he's still considered as grounded.

214L
  • Frame 1 anti-air.

Unscaled starter, devastating punish for any airborne shenanigans and a common TOD starter.


214M
  • Frame 1 reversal.
  • Smash 5MMM can wall bounce.

Gohan's invincible uppercut. Slow and easy to safejump, so mainly useful in minus frames situations to catch buttons.


  • Frame 1 reversal.
  • Smash hit performs the full uppercut.
  • Gut punch crumples grounded opponent on Smash hit, launches them high up on non-Smash.

Faster than 214M by 7 frames, but still quite easy to safejump. Better at catching buttons due to it's speed but worse as an anti-air thanks to the first hit.

  • Minimum damage: 87*20 (1740).

Hits full screen and has good vertical reach as well. Slower startup than average so be careful about using it as a reversal. Limited to use on the ground, which makes comboing into it difficult if you've already used your vanish in some cases. Almost always works out of j.236[L], but will drop in high hitstun decay due to how slow it is.


  • Minimum damage: 87*20, 55*20 (2840).
  • Can evenly clash with SS4 Gogeta's Level 7 Instant Kill without being Instant Killed by it.

The Full Power followup is not meter efficient but good for finishing opponents. Enables some ToD's and is completely unfair in Limit Break.
