1.About Gohan: Gohans life story:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is Gohans life story! If want to know more
about Gohan this is the section for you! Let the
story begin!

==================
 a.Sayjin Saga:
==================

Gohan is a 5 year old boy. The son of Goku and Chi-Chi he holds
extraordinary powers that not even he knows about. The first one
to see these powers is Raditz who takes one in the stomach after
seriously injuring Goku. After the defeat of Raditz (who Goku and
Piccolo could not have defeated without Gohans help) Piccolo
takes Gohan to train. Gohan trains in many ways for over a year,
but saddly much of his training is left uncovered. Upon the
arrival of Vegeta and Nappa, Gohan is one of the fighters who
fights Nappa. However Gohan becomes scared and cannot fight
him. Nappa sees this and tries to kill Gohan. Piccolo blocks the
attack and sacrifices himself to save Gohan. In the fight with
Vegeta, Gohan deflects Krillin's Spirit Bomb back to Vegeta
thus saving Earth.

==================
 b.Namek Saga:
==================

Gohan, Krillin, and Bulma decide to go to Namek to get the
Dragonballs to wish back Piccolo and the others. On Namek Gohan
saves Dende from Freeza's goons, collects several Dragonballs, and
hides one from a recoporated Vegeta. Gohan also sees Guru to get
his power level raised. In the fight with Recome Gohan saves
Vegeta's life. Gohan is present in the the fight with Freeza and
tears him up in his second form. Gohan is the reason Freeza goes
to his third form. After Goku goes super sayjin and is fighting
Freeza, Goku is knocked out. Gohan fights Freeza and buys Goku
the time he needs to recover, saving Goku's life.

===================
 c.Android Saga:
===================

It has been a few years now and Gohan is 11. When the androids
attack Gohan is right there ready to give his life for Earth,
and in Trunk's timeline thats just what happens. Gohan doesn't
fight much in this saga, instead, he takes care of Bulma,
Chibi Trunks, and Goku. Chi-Chi has Gohan study, but he trains
to fight the androids instead. Gohan also helps with the
descovery of Cell.

=================
 d.Cell Saga:
=================

Gohan celebrates his 12th birthday in this saga. Gohan also
becomes a super sayjin in this saga and fights Cell. Gohan
in a fight with Cell becomes enraged at Cell for hurting the
people Gohan cares for and turns SSJ 2! Making Gohan the
strongest fighter! Gohan easily bests Cell and punches him
so hard that Cell reverts back to his previous form.
Cell knowing he can't win self-destructs,but Goku transported
him to King Kai's planet. Because of Cell's regeneratory
powers, he comes back stronger than ever. Gohan and Cell fight
and Cell fires a beam at Gohan. He doges the blast but it hits
and nearly kills Trunks. Vegeta goes into a rage to kill Cell,
but gets owned by Cell. Before he can deliver the final blast,
Gohan jumps in the way and takes it in the arm, saving Vegeta's
life once agin. Gohan with the help of the others defeats Cell
and saves the world.

=================================
 e.Tournement/Babity/Buu Sagas:
=================================

Seven years have passed and Gohan is now 19. Gohan goes on to
high school at Orange Star City as a senior. On the way to school
he encounters some bank robbers. He transforms and defeats them,
but when he gets to school he realizes that everyone knows about
the "Golden Fighter" and decides that it would be best if his
friends didn't know about his powers. On the way home he comes
up with a brilliant idea about how to fight crime and be
"normal" at school. He decides to become a superhero! He
goes to Bulma's to have the costume made and announces that he
will become the Great Saiaman! Gohan fights crime with a girl
named Videl. They slowly fall in love and then Videl finds out
that Gohan was the Great Saiman. She agrees to keep his secret
if he will train her and teach her how to fly and if he will
enter in the World Martial Arts Tournament. Gohan agrees
and enters the Tournament. During the Tournament Gohan is
assulted by two odd men with an energy stealing device.
Kabito revives Gohan and explains that he is a deciple
of Shin, ruler of all the Kais (also known as Supreme Kai)
and that the two men worked for Babity, a wizard trying to
restore the ultimate evil Majin Buu. When Majin Buu is revived
he knocks out Gohan. Shin finds him and takes him to train to defeat
Buu. The Z sword breaks and elder kai comes out and increases Gohan's
power. Gohan becomes the strongest unfused character in the story!
Sadly Buu realizes this and absorbs Gohan. Gohan dies when Kid Buu
destroys the world.

2.Misc. Gohan game info
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In this section I will cover info about Gohan
that is new to DBZ: B2

====================
 a.Transformations
====================

  Adult Gohan has three transformations they are
   1. Super Saiyan
   2. Super Saiyan 2
   3. Elder Kai Unlock Ability (Mystic)

  When fully transformed Gohan attack power goes
  up to 125% without any support capsules!

=============
 b.Costumes
=============

  Gohan has three costumes now they are Gt. Sayaman w/o
  helment, Piccolo's purple outfit, and Goku's orange
  and blue

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
3.Playing as Gohan
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  This is for playing as Gohan in the game. All of Gohans moves
Are listed in this section as well as stratigy and Capsules.

=============
 a.Stratigy
=============

  It is my belief that this game requires more knowledge about your
character of choice than the last one. I believe that a knowledge of,
and use of the characters non-energy combos will lead to a more
effective victory than random Super Kamehamehas.
I do not mean to say to not use energy attacks, by all means use
them, but only when they can't be guarded aginst, like after a juggle
or a guard break. I will now list some stratigies to help you more effectivly
kill your opponent.

Transform Wisely: Transforming may give an attack bonus it eats your energy
and there is noy way to revert back without taking damage also sometimes
transforming can interrupt your opponents combo. Wouldn't be ashame if you
lost because you squandred your transformations?

Flash Kamehameha: As you all know when you transform near your opponent
you preform a guard break where he or she cant do anythig and is overwhelmed
by your power. Take advantage of this time and blast em' (they can't doge it).

Kamehameha Tactics: If your opponent is dashing towards you use a Kamehameha
they can't doge it it (if they are close) be careful with this one.

Energy Knockback: When your opponent is dashing and about to preform an attack
and you want to conserve your ki, use a ki blast when they get at point blank. The
force will litterally launch them across the room, giving you a chance to take the
offence.

Dash Weary: Don't overuse your dash attacks. Odds are if you can interrupt
there dash attacks they can figgure out how to do it to you.

Chrage Cancel: You can cancel charge attacks by tappin "G". With practice you'll
be able to Cancel and doge with one tap of "G" (and up or down of course).

Linking Combos: The mother of all energy conservers stratigy. You can "link"
multiple comboes by canceling charges and doging and starting new combos
it is possible to "link" right into an unblokable Super Kamehameha with practice.

================
 b.Full Combos
================

These are all of Gohan's combos (no "linked" combos). If I missed any send it
to me with damage and I'll put it up and give you credit.

F+K, P, P, P, E                649               Kamehameha!*,**
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
*Different combos with the Kamehameha result in different affects such as 
   added or reduced dammage
**Charging does not add dammage, but rather force to send your opponent
     further away from you or to do dammage while he/she is blocking.

Note: All damages total and do not appear in practice mode the way I have
them. For some reason the practice mode computer resets the damage
indicator in the middle of a combo.

Note2: All combos single powered and done in lowest trnsformation 
possible. To find "doubble powered" damage multiply by 1.5.

============================
 c.Special Abilities
============================

In this section I will describe and rate Gohan's abilities baised on how
well I believe they are. Keep in mind that this is MY oppinion and will not
tolerate flames from people who disagree.

Kamehameha - 1 Ki guage - rating: 5/5 - Gohan fires a cool (as in temp.) blue
 beam from his hands - I love this attack. Cheap at 1k (Ki) and very usefull.
 Perfect for counter attacking or increasing dammage after other attacks. My
 fav thing to is to doge behind a dash attack and pop one on them (especially
 Suber Buu).

Super Kamehameha - 3k - rating: 2/5 - Gohan pours almost all of his power into
 one supercharged Kamehameha that engulfs the opponent and deals massive
 dammage to your opponent - My least favorite move. I can never seem to
 nail this one and always lose the ki so I figure that its not worth it.
 I don't believe I have ever been able to use this on my friend.

Zanku Fist - 1k - rating: 4/5 - Gohan unleahes a series of punches and kicks
 in true DBZ style - Another favorite of mine. I love the way the movie looks
 and the cost is easy to meet. I almost always land the attack it looks cool.

Continuous Kamehameha - 2k - rating: 4/5 - Gohan launches a barrage of ki
 blasts - Very powerful. Probably the second strongest attack Gohan has.
 It can charge to go through blocks on the last hit of the punches too.
 The only reason this attack is a 4 is because it is not true to the show.
 Gohan (as an adult) never used it. As a matter of fact Vegeta made
 the attack and Gotenks used it once. They were the only two.

Super Dragon Fist - 2k - rating: 3/5 (ground) 5/5 (air) - Gohan
 unleashes a firce barrage of punches and kicks endind with a
 barrage of punches to the chest - On the ground this move is
 sub-par, but this one rocks in the air. In the air this move
 is very versitile. After watching Gohan beat the snot outta
 someone and then knocking them back down to Earth you can
 a.Fire an undogeable Kamehameha b.Dash forward and time an
 undogeable dash attack or c.Dash and stop to unleash a Zanku
 Fist or Continuous Kamehameha for maximum dammage.


==============
 d.Speed
==============

A very important factor both in the show and the game is the factor of
speed. It was speed that gained Cell a victory over Trunks and it is
speed that may gain your victories. There are two kinds of speed in this
game: Punch and Kick speed (PKS), and Dash speed (DS). You cannot change
DS (at least on Gohan). But PKS can be slightly increased. Every time
you transform, Gohan's PKS will increase slightly. The incraments are
probably less than five percent, so it is very easy to miss.

=================

 f. Cap. Suggestions
=====================

Here I will go over the different stiles of Gohan's you can have.
If you have a Gohan you would like to submit other than what
I already have and breakthroughs I will gladly accept them. Just
be sure to have a description.

My Gohan:

Super Saiyan
Super Saiyan 2
Elder Kai Unlock ability
Super Kamehameha x 2
Kamehameha
Z-Sword

My Gohan revolves aroud the principle that a characters
strongest moves don't consume ki. Super Kamehameha
doubble powered to be linked into and Kamehameha to get
out of some sticky situations. The Z-Sword is nice to give
those punches and kicks another ten percent and is cheap
at only one slot.

Variation: Kami's Outfit or Mixed Blood Power in place of
Z-Sword to help defence instead of attack.

Defence Gohan:

Super Saiyan
Super Saiyan 2
Elder Kai Unlock ability
Kamehameha
Kami's Outfit
Mixed Blood Power
Kibito's Revival Power

This Gohan works on having a good defence. With Kami's
Outfit and MBP defence is shooting throught he roof at 118%
and attack is at a 133% max. Add that to the fact that you will
be taking reduced damage and you are set for life.
