Son Gohan no Ken
|Alternate names||Training Sword|
|Debut||"Gohan Goes Bananas!"|
In order to train Gohan to be prepared when the Saiyans arrive, Piccolo leaves Gohan alone in the woods for six months with nothing but the clothes on his back and a sword (created by Piccolo). Gohan uses the sword to survive by using it to catch prey, cut his way out of bad situations, and to train physically with it. After Piccolo begins training him personally in martial arts, Gohan switches to fully training with his body and abandons his sword.
Video game appearancesEdit
Gohan's training sword (孫悟飯のトレーニング剣, Son Gohan no Torēningu Ken) is the Z-Fighter Exhibit #3 in Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury. The in-game description reads "Gohan used this sword while he was training with Piccolo after the fight with Raditz."
Gohan's sword is an item that raises the player's attack when equipped in Dragon Ball Z: Harukanaru Densetsu.
- Gohan's sword is similar to his father's trademark weapon, the Power Pole, in few ways. Both have magic properties (Goku's Power Pole being a magic staff and Gohan's sword created through Magic Materialization), both are wielded by their respective users before they take on training fully with their bodies. during Gohan's training with the sword, he sports a gi (except with a different kanji) similar to his father's, which Goku usually wears during his use of the Power Pole; both weapons served the users primarily during their youth.
- The sword Gohan's mother Chi-Chi holds in anger in front of Master Roshi at the end of the Frieza Saga looks much like Gohan's sword.
