This is a list of notable techniques used by Gohan which have appeared in the Dragon Ball manga, the anime series Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball Super and Dragon Ball GT, and various video games spun off by the Dragon Ball series.

Physical and Natural Abilities

Main article: Saiyan Despite being a hybrid, Gohan is the most powerful Saiyan hybrid in existence, and has many times been told that his true potential, has no limit, by both his father and the Supreme Kai, with even Vegeta admitting Gohan to have a greater potential than both him and Goku, who are on God-like levels of power. Through training, Gohan's body has been enhanced far beyond the limits of his human friends, and is just as physically powerful as that of a full-blood Saiyan warrior, giving him vast superhuman physical prowess and capabilities that he has retained through the years, even after taking long breaks from his training.

  • Superhuman Strength: While as a child, Gohan showed no level of superior physical strength, after beginning his training under Piccolo's tutelage, his natural Saiyan physical strength started to develop properly, becoming strong enough to crack big boulders of rock in less than a month, and even hurt Piccolo with just punches after some months of training. By the time he became a young adult, Gohan's superhuman strength had increased to the point where he could easily carry a Boeing 747 plane full of people without any discomfort, cause earthquakes by shaking his feet against the ground, and even without transforming into Super Saiyan. He can also move in increased gravity with ease, destroy entire mountains with random blows, and even lift the extremely heavy Z Sword, and more impressively, he became able to lift, and swing the sword with no discomfort, in a very short period of time.
  • Superhuman Speed: Even as a child, Gohan's prodigy speed was noticed by the likes of Vegeta, Krillin, and even the bio-android Cell. As a teenager and young adult, and also, as a highly trained Saiyan, Gohan is easily capable of catching bullets with tremendous ease, and travel great distances in astonishingly short periods of time. He was even capable of outrunning cars by running at high speed. However, by using his ki to fly he can move much faster.
  • Superhuman Durability: After beginning to tap into his Saiyan potential, Gohan's body became incredibly tough, to the point where he could fall several stories high and feel just a tiny bit of pain, however, by the time of Vegeta's arrival to Earth, Gohan was able to resist a brutal beating by the back-then evil Saiyan, and even survive a Ki-Explosion while unconscious. By the time he became an adult, Gohan was so physically strong, that he could easily survive all Earthling-made weapons, with bullets simply bouncing off his skin, and explosions not even leaving a mark on him. Using his ki he can enhance his durability even further.
  • Superhuman Senses: As a hybrid-Saiyan, Gohan possesses superhumanly enhanced senses of smell, taste and sight, which further help him in battle, improving his combat reflexes and reaction time, with this, he can easily follow objects moving faster than the speed of sound or even dodge powerful attacks from his opponents.

  • Saiyan Power: As a hybrid-Saiyan, Gohan possess the Saiyan's genetic trait that allows Gohan's power to continue to increase as he fights and rise dramatically after recovering from near fatal injuries. It was this very trait that allowed Frieza to identify Gohan as a Saiyan after he his power increased after the near fatal injuries he received from Second Form Frieza were healed by Dende.

Techniques appearing in the manga and anime

Speed and movement techniques

  • Flight – The user manipulates their ki so that they are able to fly. Most warriors in the Dragon Ball universe can do this. At the start of the Majin Buu Saga, base Gohan proves to be able to fly faster than the Flying Nimbus, as shown when he easily beats it in a race.
  • Full-Nelson – Gohan uses this hold as the Great Saiyaman in order to restrain Videl when the latter tries to attack him, thinking he is kidnapping Chobi from the Musuka Circus, while he was in fact returning him to his parents. He also uses this in an attempt to stop the God of Destruction Beerus from attacking Mr. Buu in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods.

Gohan charging a Ki Blast technique

  • Ultimate Masenko – The strongest version of the Masenko used by Kid Gohan. He has this attack as his ultimate move in Burst Limit and Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World.
  • Masendan – An attack used in the Frieza Saga. Gohan holds his hands to his head like the regular Masenko, but then charges up for much longer until the attack forms an energy ball. He then throws the ball like a grenade, causing an explosion.
  • Gekiretsu Madan – Gohan releases a rapid barrage of energy blasts at his opponents, causing a massive accumulation of damage.
  • Wild Rush Blaster – A rush attack finished with a Full Power Masenko.
  • Special Beam Cannon – A very powerful beam fired by charging a lot of energy into your index and middle finger in front of your forehead and then extending your arm to fire. Gohan used Piccolo's Special Beam Cannon while Image Training with Krillin on their way to Namek. In Budokai Tenkaichi 3, Future Gohan is able to perform this technique in his Super Saiyan form. In Shin Budokai - Another Road, Future Gohan can use Special Beam Cannon on Base State as an Ultimate Move. However, in his Super Saiyan form, this is replaced with Super Kamehameha. In Xenoverse, Adult Gohan can use it in his third Skillset (this Skillset is also used to represent Future Gohan in Parallel Quest 26: "Warriors' Annihilation - Future Chapters", due to Future Gohan's absence in Xenoverse).
  • Golden Dome Attack – Gohan creates a giant golden energy shield, condenses it, and fires it as a massive energy wave. He used this attack to destroy the Makyo Star and defeat Garlic Junior.

Gohan fires an Energy Wave at Goku

    • Super Kamehameha – An upgraded version of the Kamehameha. The hand movements to perform the attack is the same as the Kamehameha, however the charging time takes longer due to more ki energy being put into it. Seeing as how Goku was the inventor of the upgraded version, it is likely Gohan learned it from his father. In the Budokai series, it is placed as Gohan's Ultimate Move.
    • Ultimate Kamehameha – A stand-charging version of the Kamehameha used by Gohan in his Super Saiyan 2 form. Gohan used it to repel Perfect Cell's Kamehameha from hitting the Earth. It is additionally used by Ultimate Gohan in several video games.

  • Father-Son Kamehameha – Gohan uses this attack only once during the entire series. When Gohan uses his Kamehameha to counter Super Perfect Cell's own, he is helped spiritually by Goku. This attack helps Gohan overpower and defeat Super Perfect Cell with a little help from Vegeta. The name was coined by the Budokai video game series, but was not mentioned as a separate attack in the anime.
    • Ultimate Kamehameha – A team attack used by Gohan and Goku in several video games.
    • Bros. Kamehameha – Gohan and Goten fire their separate Kamehameha attacks until they merge into a large Kamehameha blast. They briefly use this attack against Broly in Broly - Second Coming, until being replaced by the Family Kamehameha.
    • Family Kamehameha – Gohan uses this attack in the film Broly - Second Coming. This attack is used by Goku, Gohan, and Goten together. First, Gohan and Goten use the Bros. Kamehameha to hold off Broly's Omega Blaster. Then, the attack a short time later in the film becomes a similar move to the Father-Son Kamehameha with the arrival of Goku to help coach his sons to victory.
    • Twin Dragon Shot – Gohan uses this attack against Dabura.
    • Electric Kamehameha – Gohan fires a golden flashing version of the Kamehameha. He uses this attack in his Super Saiyan 2 to try and destroy the Sealed Ball containing Majin Buu, to no effect. He uses the attack again in his ultimate form during his battle against Super Buu.
    • Justice Kamehameha – A spherical version of the Kamehameha used by Gohan in his Great Saiyaman outfit. He uses this attack in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn to blast away a crowd Zombies, scattering rotting parts everywhere.
    • Super Great Saiyaman Beam - Gohan's version of the Super Kamehameha while in his Great Saiyaman alter ego, used to overpower and nearly kill Barry Kahn possessed Watagash in Dragon Ball Super.

Other abilities

  • Telekinesis – When a thug launched a missile at him, Gohan (as the Great Saiyaman) telekinetically pushed it back to him.
  • Tenma Defense - A green energy shield that protects Gohan from any incoming attacks. Gohan used it to protect himself, Krillin, and Piccolo from being sucked into the Dead Zone and his alternate future self used this technique to block some of Android 17 and 18's blasts in their last battle. In Movie 10, Gohan used it to protect Goten, Trunks, Videl and himself from Broly's energy blast. It was named in Battle of Z. In Xenoverse 2, it is named Energy Dome and is an Evasive Skill used by Adult Gohan and Future Gohan.
  • Ki Sense – Gohan can sense power levels like many other characters in the series.
  • Super Breath – Gohan used a far less powerful version by accident in a filler episode of Dragon Ball Z when he accidentally blew away his birthday cake.
