Videl (ビーデル, Bīderu) is the only Human daughter and second child of Mr. Satan and Miguel. She's also the younger sister of Jimmy. In keeping with the name puns of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z, her name is an anagram of 'Devil'; since her father's original Japanese name is Mr. Satan (Hercule in edited dub and in Viz's censored manga, giving it the "A for all ages" label). She's Gohan's wife, and the mother of Pan.
Videl's physique is delicate and slender, despite being a tough fighter features that make her attractive in the conventional sense: young child and young woman of average height with a slender frame yet athletic physique. Videl has had four different hairstyles. Over the course of the series, she had low pigtails reaches down her shoulder, but she then cut her hair short soon after; at the end of Dragon Ball Z, her hair reaches down to her cheeks. In Dragon Ball GT, her hair reaches her hips and she has it in a braid.
In her youth, she usually wore a white shirt with black tight spandex short shorts that reach her upper thighs, green shoes, black gloves and gold hair clips.
She has the pale skin color, blue eyes, and straight black hair with side bangs that she inherited traits and bears a striking resemblance to her late mother, Miguel.
After she began training with Gohan, the new hairstyle: shorter hair is flat with cropped spiky style bangs, a white sleeveless loose shirt, a pink t-shirt, same black biking shorts, black fingerless gloves, and yellow boots. In the beginning in both Gather for the Tournament episode and the movie Broly: The Second Coming, she retains this outfit only her black spandex short shorts are replaced with a black capris.
After her defeat the hands of of Spopvich, and healed with eating the Senzu Bean, she's wore the orange, long-sleeved shirt, with a blue t-shirt emblazoned with the word "FIGHT" written in red on the chest, as well as white pants, and orange shoes and retains her short hair.
The final attire she ever wore as a teen, before the 28th World Tournament, was a blue dress with a pink vest, blue thigh-high stockings, and pink loafers. She also wore this during the dance party that Bulma hosted to celebrate Majin Buu's defeat. At the end of the series, she wears a red dress and a red mini skirt with her hair grown back.
In Dragon Ball GT, Videl wears an outfit similar to Android 18's first outfit; a light blue denim jacket and skirt with a yellow short sleeve undershirt, dark gray leggings with white folded sleeves at the edge, brown belt and her yellow boots from her second outfit. In the Shadow Dragon saga, her short sleeve undershirt from her main outfit is pink.
As an adult, Videl cropped to her hair cheek length, having it frame her face.
In Dragon Ball Super, Videl is first seen with her current chin-length hair and has had it ever since. She originally sported a pink sweater-dress that reached her upper thighs, with a red stripe around the chest area, along with black tights and bright pink shoes with darker pink soles. For Bulma's party throughout the Battle of Gods Saga, she changed her style to a red dress with a devil face mark on the chest, black leggings and white boots. For the Resurrection F saga, she sports a plain red dress with her normal current hairstyle, black tights and white high heel shoes. Her design changed drastically from a meek child, teenage tomboy style into a typical house-wife style, indicating how much Videl has mellowed out to becoming more domestic character than before.
Videl looks nothing like her father, which means she must have looked a lot like her mother. Her child outfit attire is the purple long-sleeved shirt, the teddy face on the front, grey shorts, purple shoes, and purple bows tied in pigtails. In her preteen years of 10 years old and later she's turned 11 years old (she's very litter than Gohan), she wears a white shirt with tight black spandex bike/compression shorts that reach her upper thighs, black gloves, green shoes, and gold hair clips that she's sneak up to see Gohan with her brother and Kayla fight Cell in the Cell Games.
The Gold Hair pieces that Videl wears in pigtails ( Buu Saga ) actually belonged to her late mother, Miguel. As a young child Videl was always fascinated by these hair pieces because to her they were beautiful, and she would always try to put them on to play pretend. After Miguel passed away, it was revealed that Miguel wrapped them in a small gift-box and was going to give them to Videl personally as a gift.
Videl's character design is purportedly based off of "Fasha" (Vasha/Seripa), a female saiyan from the Bardock special. The child and preteen version of Videl. At the end of Dragon Ball Z, her attitude was much more leveled off; her temperament from earlier episodes softened considerably.
Videl was born in Age 757. She grew up learning martial arts, hoping to be as great as her father, when in fact, unknown to herself, she was already better and stronger than him. On May 7 of Age 767, when she was turned 11 from her birthday, Videl won in the Junior Division of the 24th World Martial Arts Tournament. Her father is very protective of her, especially in respect to boys, only allowing her to have a boyfriend if he was stronger than him, which Videl thought was impossible (until Gohan came along as he's grew up as 17-years-old high school teenager after Cell died from 7 years ago). It is unknown where or who her mother is, although Videl does mention her during one episode saying her mother is "gone" (in the English manga, Videl stated that her mother had died).
She want to following her brother's steps as the powerful fighter and martial artist. She's also have the good friendship with Kayla, who's bears a striking resemblance to her, but she has the China blunt bang front, because they're married and she's good mother of her children a lot.
Jimmy was teaching his sister in martial arts, to control the energy by using ability to fly, fire Ki energy blasts, fighting skills what Videl watch of Kayla's fighting skill moves, afterimage technique and afterimage strike in battles.
As a young child Videl was always fascinated by these hair pieces because to her they were beautiful, and she would always try to put them on to play pretend.
Videl enjoys Caesar salad and Okonomiyaki, a type of Japanese pancake. She is left handed, as seen in she pitches a baseball, and writes with her left hand.
Videl is a tough, tomboyish character, raised with fame all around her, and is a Tsundere regarding her relationship with Gohan (the term Tsundere applies to a female character who is initially cold toward a male character, but who then eventually warms up to him). After blackmailing Gohan to enter the tournament and teach her the levitation technique (using ki energy to fly), she gradually starts to fall in love with him, for his kind and honest heart. She later becomes the wife of Gohan and mother of Pan.
Notably, Videl's facial features have changed as her personality changed, becoming less harsh, and more soft and gentle.
She was younger child, that she was meek and sweet child to meeting Gohan as they were children at the Cell Games for the first time.
As Gohan's wife, she is very caring and motherly to everyone. She has a calmer tone to her voice and no longer has a rough, fiery vibe anymore. She also proves to have extreme faith in Gohan, such as when Barry Kahn showed her pictures of Gohan being kissed by Cocoa Amaguri and pretended to console her, Videl lashed out at him, saying that Barry was pathetic, and stating that Gohan must've had a reason to do what he did. Later, after Gohan defeats the infected Barry Khan, Videl hugs Gohan and exclaims that she loved him.
She's teasing and laughing with her older brother, Jimmy, about his sweetheart relationship with his girlfriend, Kayla during they were younger and grew into the sweet couples. She's getting along being polite aunt with her niece and nephew, Melissa and Tommy.
Dragon Ball ZEdit
Cell Saga EditMain articles: Cell Games Saga
"What's kind of a father would let a boy fight side with my big brother and Kayla to fight Cell, although he does looks like strong, pure, gentle and cute. What am I thinking, Videl, snap out of it, he's isn't cute, what's wrong with me?! I can't stop thinking about him, I could've fall in love with Goku's son? He's cute, but he's dangerous, but I am watching Kayla's fighting skills, afterimage technique, afterimage strike, flying and techniques I am encouraged him to defeat Perfect Cell for my father. I love him."
11-years-old Videl Satan had secretly taken of her father's jet copters and successfully manages to land it just outside of the Cell Games. She processed on foot to where the match was being held where Goku and Cell fighting by hiding to watch fight continues. She looked and saw that her father was pretending to be in pain. She knew he was pretending because she's seen him in pain before Cell knock her father off into the cliff, and this was obviously an act. She saw her older brother, Jimmy, is next to Z Fighters: Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, Piccolo, Android 16, Krillin, Tien Shinshen, Chiaotzu, Yamaha, Future Trunks and Kayla. She looked at the fighting going on and saw a blonde boy with green eyes are going side with her brother and Kayla as his back-up team to fight Perfect Cell, but he stepped down and told his son due to the different remembrance to his father, get ready to fight. Jimmy flies over and explained to his father about everything, and then he's sitting next to his younger sister with a whole story from the beginning, about Cell and told her go stay hidden of her safety to watch and learn the fight.She saw Gohan powers up to the point where his power exceeds even Goku's and reluctantly fights Perfect Cell with her older brother and Kayla. As the battle occurs, Gohan does not have the same fighting spirit as his father or does he have the desire to kill, thus allowing Perfect Cell to gain the upper hand. Gohan tells Cell of his past that once he becomes enraged, his hidden power is unleashed, referring to when he attacked Raditz, when he was in training with Piccolo, and when he was fighting the Ginyu Force and Frieza that she's listening his story to Cell and she's realizing that Gohan is just like her, she doesn't so much to be strong as her brother or father, after her mother died since she was baby as she does know that she finally understands of his past the same past as she have. Gohan did not wish to see this power unleashed like Kayla, much to Perfect Cell's chagrin. She's also told Cell the truth about her heritage, meeting her previous Jinchuriki, Kaylah, doesn't want to show her hidden powers and strength, she's a descendant and reincarnation of Kaylah Spencer, being born with Autism, inherited Saiyan traits hidden and mystic powers from her father. Believing he could see this hidden power, Perfect Cell began smacking Gohan around to get him angry and Kayla, too. Gohan finally gets a little angry and kicks Perfect Cell in the face, giving him a bloody lip and fueling his desire to see Gohan's hidden power. When things start to get dangerous, Android 16 sneaks up behind Perfect Cell and gives him a bear hug, attempting to self-destruct and take the monster with him. However, Krillin reveals to Android 16 that Bulma and her father removed the self-destruct bomb, allowing Perfect Cell to break free and blast Android 16 to bits, much to the horror of the Z Fighters. However, the android's head is left still intact and rolls over to Mr. Satan and his gang, who were hiding and watching the fight. As she's watching between Gohan, Jimmy, Kayla and Cell throughout the battlefield, and felt horrific on the death of Android 16 by Cell.
"Oh no, it's not like they're tried to kill my brother, he's just to see and forced Gohan to unleash his anger and hidden powers to kill his father and friends, before they can see me. I've got to get out of here now!"
She was watching Cell torturing and beatings on Kayla nearby death and knocking her unconscious laying on the ground. She felt something poking her, and when she turned around right behind her was the one of ugly monsters (Cell Juniors) looking at her in hiding spot from watching the fights, which Cell noticed and sensed her that Videl is Mr. Satan's daughter and Jimmy's younger sister in a whole time by he's spotted her in her hiding spot, and he tells his Cell Jr to bring her to him over.
She dropped into her fighting stance to power up and begin to fly fight Cell Jr, using First Strike send it into the ground, mimicking her father told her to running away far from him as she can as possible, but it grab her leg and threw her over into the ground from her hiding spot and into clear view of Gohan, in the front of Perfect Cell at her in the first time that she was too scared of him by he's forcing her to watch her older brother beaten and tortured by Cell Jrs along with Krillin. Then, her father yells Cell to leave his children alone, and when Cell with evil wickedly laugh says to mock the cowardly Mr. Satan, ("Don't worry, you'll joining with your students and children suffering wrath in the Earth. After I done playing with you, I'll take care of your intelligent son and precious daughter will ended up the same fate are history like Spencer Family did. Ha! Don't make me laugh!") Videl now understand realizes the truth about Cell was very cold-hearted, cruel, ruthless, and pure evil murder like Frieza, he killed Shaun and Danielle, she's fears that she begins to realized Kayla was right about Cell's true evil nature, when she will get her turn, and ended up just like her brother, seeing Kayla still alive, moaning and unconscious on the ground like herself, and Cell want Cell Jr to kill her and brother. Jimmy tells Cell, ("Hey, Cell, get away from her, that Videl was my sister, don't cruel say things to insult my father like that and just leave us alone!") Cell Jr continues beating him on the ground.
Meanwhile, the head of Android 16 convinces Mr. Satan to throw his head to where Gohan and Perfect Cell are so that he may help Gohan. Now in Gohan's sight, Android 16 tells Gohan to not be afraid of releasing his anger and that it was okay to fight if he wants to protect the people and world he loved. Finally, 16 said to Gohan to drop his restraints and let it go because he has enough power and strength to defeat Perfect Cell. With Android 16's final words, Perfect Cell crushes Android 16's head, ending the peaceful android's life. Touched by Android 16's final words and enraged by the peaceful android's death, then Cell Junior was approaching towards Videl, she crawling backward with screams and cry in her life with Gohan's rage reaches its limits and transforms him into a new level, Super Saiyan 2.Now in his new anger-fueled state, Gohan says to Perfect Cell stating that he will never forget what he has done. He approaches the android and quickly snatches the Senzu Beans that Perfect Cell stole from Krillin. Gohan disappears as Cell tries to grab them back and appears in front of a Cell Jr., showing new amounts of speed. The Cell Jr. attempts to strike Gohan, only to be easily killed by the enraged young Saiyan. Gohan moves so fast that it appears that he has teleported to where Krillin and Jimmy is held captive by two of the Cell Jrs., something that Future Trunks realizes about Gohan increasing his strength and power without losing speed. Gohan rescues Krillin and Videl, then Jimmy ran towards an unconscious injury Kayla and kills another of the Cell Jrs. Seeing this new incredible power that Goku spoke of earlier, Perfect Cell orders all of the Cell Jrs. To take on Gohan all at once; however, Gohan easily kills all of Cell Jrs. without mercy, much to the amazement and shock of everyone, including Perfect Cell. After Gohan gives the stolen Senzu Beans to Future Trunks to heal the Z Fighters, he proceeds to challenge Perfect Cell.
"I'm fine, thanks to you for saving me, my father and brother...my name is Videl. What's yours?"
Perfect Cell flies up high into the air and fires a massive Kamehameha down at Gohan in an attempt to destroy the entire Earth. However, just as the huge energy beam is about to hit the Earth, Gohan counterattacks with a bigger and more powerful Kamehameha, overpowering Perfect Cell's Kamehameha and destroying the android's legs, left arm, and the two straight sections on top of his head. Goku yells for Gohan to finish off Cell before he regenerates, but Gohan, still enraged at Perfect Cell's actions, refuses and wants Cell to suffer before he kills him. As Goku predicted, the enraged Cell regenerates, and transforms into his Power Weighted form but even with his enormous power, he is unable to hit Gohan, making the same mistake Future Trunks made ten days ago. After Gohan dodges Cell's punches, he delivered two powerful kicks to Perfect Cell's face and stomach, making him regurgitate Android 18 and transform back into his Semi-Perfect form.
In a fit of anger and desperation, Semi-Perfect Cell began a Self Destruction technique, planning to blow himself up along with the Earth. Gohan attempts to attack the self-destructing Semi-Perfect Cell, but the android replies that if he is hit, he will immediately explode. Hearing this, Gohan realizes that there is no way that he can save the Earth and blames himself for not finishing Cell off sooner. However, at the last second, Goku uses instant-transmission to transport in front of Semi-Perfect Cell. Goku tells Gohan how proud he is of his son for putting up a good fight and to look after Chi-Chi. After a heart-felt goodbye to his son, Goku transports Cell away from Earth to King Kai's planet where Semi-Perfect Cell finally explodes, destroying the planet and killing Goku, King Kai, Bubbles, and Gregory in the process. Back on Earth, Gohan and the other Z Fighters mourn Goku's noble sacrifice. Realizing how cocky and arrogant he was, Gohan cries and blames himself for his father's death while Krillin and then Videl tries to comfort him in her arms with tears and Jimmy carried the injury unconscious Kayla in his arms.
However, unknown to the Z Fighters, Cell survives the explosion, regenerating from a lone cell in his core. Doing this effectively raised his power higher due to the Saiyan genes he absorbed from Goku and Vegeta, and he also learned Goku's Instant Transmission technique, which he used to head back to Earth. As his first act of return, Super Perfect Cell kills Future Trunks with one blast in front of the shocked Z Fighters. Gohan was in fact pleased to see Super Perfect Cell had returned, hoping to defeat the android so he could avenge his father. Enraged by his son's death, Vegeta in a fit of fury and rage, transformed into to a Super Saiyan and attacked Super Perfect Cell with a powerful barrage of energy blasts. However, as the dust clears, Super Perfect Cell emerges from the blast, unharmed, and smacks Vegeta aside to the ground and fires a powerful blast at the Saiyan prince. Gohan jumps in front of the unconscious Vegeta and takes the full-force of Super Perfect Cell's attack, costing him the use of his left arm and most of his power drained.It became badly damaged, and hung limply at his side. Vegeta, in a rare moment, actually apologized to Gohan. Super Perfect Cell jumped back and prepared for an attack. But Kayla was survived and regain conscious from Cell's brutal severely beatings, arrived to protect Gohan, even though Gohan was giving it all of his power, Kayla transfer her energy to Gohan, healing him and she's telling Cell that Kaylah's energy part of her because she's descendant and reincarnation of Kaylah Spencer in her spirit form in her entire life as Jinchuriki by her side and everyone from Cell and telling Super Perfect Cell to leave her friends alone in rematch to fight back overcome her fears and showed everyone of her true potential maximum powers against Cell with hand-to-hand combat, a powerful barrage of punches and kicks, gain speed and agility to blocking and dodging of Cell's attacks, Regeneration, Ki Blasts, Full Power Energy Wave, Galactic Donut, Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack, and Masenko as the distractions for Gohan to fire a Kamehameha wave at Super Perfect Cell.
Gohan proceeded to walk towards Cell, when Cell said, "Coward. Maybe if I will kill your sweet Videl! If I am going to die, then I am going to take your girlfriend with me!" Before Gohan could do anything to him, Cell grabbed Videl and restrained her in his grips, she's screams said, "Let me go!", and said to Gohan, "(Well, aren't you gonna do anything or should I kill her? Maybe I'll eat her in front of you, Jimmy and her father...She smells delicious.)" Cell said Gohan sniffing Videl.
Gohan appears behind Cell, he's kicks Cell in the face, in time he need to rescue Videl from Cell. Gohan ran away to the other side of the platform, holding Videl in one arm, flying away from him, and tell her run to her father.Wanting to end the conflict, Super Perfect Cell prepares a massive Kamehameha to destroy Gohan, who loses all hope after having his left arm broken and seeing how much more powerful Super Perfect Cell is now. However, at that moment, Goku telepathically contacted Gohan with the help of King Kai and encouraged Gohan to believe in his power. When Gohan tells Goku it was all his fault that this happened, Goku reminds him that not only do things like this happen, but if anyone is to blame for it, it is Super Perfect Cell. With new found hope and confidence, Gohan prepares a one-handed Kamehameha with the assistance from Goku's spirit. With their attacks finally charged and ready, Gohan and Super Perfect Cell fire their Kamehameha attacks at each other, resulting in a huge Beam Struggle that knocks away everyone else.
"Yes, by a boy...Loser!"
Following Super Perfect Cell's defeat, the Z Fighters and Gohan return to Dende's Lookout, where he is healed by Dende. With the newly recreated Dragon Balls, they summon Shenron and wish for all of Cell's victims to be revived. However, Goku does not come back and telepathically contacts the Z Fighters on the Lookout. Goku tells them not to revive him and explains that he seemed to attract evil villains that were after him, so the Earth would be safer if he was not there. He also said that Gohan had greatly surpassed him and if there were any other threats, Gohan would be there to defend the Earth. With the conversation over, Gohan and the Z Fighters say their goodbyes to Goku and to each other before leaving Kami's Lookout and going their separate ways, leaving the Earth safe once more.

In the Baby Saga, she and her husband get possessed by Baby. Videl noticed on the New Planet Plant that Pan was helping others to become normal. Videl kicked Pan out of the air, demanding that she stopped with such actions, and to become one of Baby's underlings. Videl and Gohan almost killed their own daughter, since Baby ordered them to, but Uub intercepted and saved Pan. Videl is cured with the Sacred Water.
The Ultimate Android, Super 17Edit
During the 30th World Tournament she observes with her husband, Gohan, as Pan and Goku compete.
During the battle against Super 17, she wants to fight along with the Z Fighters (wearing her Great Saiyawoman outfit no less); however, by the time she gets there, Goku and Android 18 have done the job already.
The Evil Shadow DragonsEdit
In the end, she has no fights against the Shadow Dragons. After the defeat of Omega Shenron, she lives in peace with Gohan and Pan at Mount Paozu. By the end of the series, she has likely died of old age, as Pan, her daughter, is shown to have a grandson.
Power and special abilitiesEdit
Unlike other fighters, who have a balanced mix of physical and energy-based techniques, Videl uses only pure physical attacks.

Great Saiyawoman (グレートサイヤマン２号, Great Saiyaman 2) is Videl's alter ego. After she discovered Great Saiyaman's true identity (Gohan) and obliged him to enter in the World Martial Arts Tournament, Videl began using a similar costume to fight criminals. Her very first appearance as as the Great Saiyawoman is near the end of Dragon Ball Z, in the episode "Celebrations with Majin Buu". Videl also appears as Great Saiyawoman in Wrath of the Dragon and in Dragon Ball GT.
