** He undergoes a lot of character development in ''Super'' after he was powerless against Frieza. He realizes that not only is Dragon Ball a dangerous world to live in and he needs to train again to protect his family, he learns to go straight for the kill after Piccolo chews him out for letting Cell and Buu take advantage of him, and he realizes how important Goku's approval is to him and sets out to make Goku proud(although Goku already was proud of him despite Gohan's lifestyle choices(if only sad that he didnt walk down Goku's path but he still loves his son anyway) and had complete faith in Gohan even when he was in his weakened state, but Gohan was still extremely insecure about dissapointing him.)

* {{Determinator}}: As much as his father. {{Deconstructed|Trope}} by his future self from ''Anime/TheHistoryOfTrunks''; Gohan's refusal to back down cost him his left arm and eventually, his life. This is how he barely gets by in ''Super'' after losing most of his power, the standout examples when he nearly killed himself to summon Goku and Vegeta was able to force a tie with Lavender ''while his eyes, organs, and limbs were rotting away'' all as a Super Saiyan 1. He luckily keeps the trait after getting his ultimate power back.

He luckily keeps the trait after getting his ultimate power back.

Added DiffLines:

* ForegoneConclusion: Unless the creative team retcon ''End of Z'', no matter how strong a fighter he gets in ''Super'', he'll eventually go back to being a scholar first and foremost. Justified because he only really trains when he needs to, and generally doesn't want to be a typical Saiyan BloodKnight.

* BoringButPractical: [[FanNickname "Mystic"]] / "Ultimate" Gohan doesn't look flashy (he doesn't even go Super Saiyan), but goes even beyond Super Saiyan 3 in power and doesn't require Gohan to spend energy or put any strain on his body to use it.

** And even then, if he decides to train, he can go even further. In ''Super'', Gohan gets back to trainning after being beaten by Frieza. By the Universal Survival Saga, he regains his Ultimate Form back, with a new catch: [[spoiler:this time he's powerful enough to take on a ''Super Saiyan Blue''. Goku has to use his Kaioken to win the fight]].

** In ''Super'' episode 90, he's retrained himself and regained his Ultimate power-up, which allows him to [[spoiler: take hits from Super Saiyan Blue Goku]]. Then [[spoiler:Goku uses the Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken and [[OneHitKO knocks Gohan out with one punch]].]]

* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: He's amazingly stoic about his eyes and body rotting out during his fight with Lavender and fights through the pain with only his desire for Goku's approval keeping him going. He was unconscious and on Death's door at end of the fight before Goku gave him a sensu bean. He also is fairly unfazed after [[spoiler: [[StuffBlowingUp Frieza nuked him and Dyspo off the stage at the Tournament of Power]].]]

* BrilliantButLazy: Has (by far) the most natural fighting ability out of the entire cast, but he doesn't share his father's love of fighting and usually won't bother to train unless there's a threat. Because of this, he actually gets ''weaker'' after the TimeSkip. Vegeta chews him out for it, although, being DBZ, he eventually gets a [[TimeToUnlockMoreTruePotential new powerup anyway]]. Gohan is perfectly capable of applying himself to the things he likes, and he's also perfectly capable of applying himself to fighting if he has a reason to. However, after Goku's fight with Toppo during the Zen Exhibition, he show's brief excitement for the upcoming Tournament of Power, likely due to his Saiyan heritage.

** With encouragement from his father from beyond the grave, Gohan finally kills Cell once and for all. However, Android 16 cannot be wished back since he was never really alive to begin with and Goku choses to remain dead for everyone's protection, forcing Gohan to break the news to his mother.

* EleventhHourSuperpower: Him reaching Super Saiyan 2 during the Cell Games. The Kai's ritual was this for the Buu arc, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero but he screwed it up]].



* FatherIDontWantToFight: Despite knowing that he is the last hope to defeat Cell and his father's encouragements, Gohan can't bring himself to destroy the android. He doesn't like to fight and, at least in the manga, has never taking a life before. He begs Cell to surrender, but Cell choses pushes him past his RageBreakingPoint to bring out his hidden power. This ends ''really'' badly for Cell.

** Gohan to his young brother Goten. They both have many similarities to their father like their [[IncorruptiblePurePureness pure-hearts]], love of animals, their innocents, and fun-loving nature. Goten inherited his father's carefree personality, while Gohan is serious and down to Earth. Goten is quite hyper, while Gohan is very reserved. Goten is allow to be a child, while Gohan was forced to grow up fast because of the constant danger the Earth was exposed to.

Gohan is the man of the house since his father is dead and he needs to take care of his mom, although he was serious and down-earth even before Goku died. Goten is similarity to his father in that he's carefree, irresponsible, and mischievous. [[{{Foil}} Despite being near polar opposites]], they both adore each other with Goten hero-worshipping his big brother.

** He comes up with a plan to beat [[FragileSpeedster Dyspo]] when both him and Frieza were getting destroyed 2v1. It only didn't go completely smooth due to Frieza's endurance reaching its limit, but they still were able to eliminate him by Gohan preforming a non-lethal HeroicSacrifice to hold him down that wouldn't have been possible if Gohan hadn't thought of the plan.
