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. Also, she's the maternal aunt of Melissa and Tommy.
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 below average height with a slender frame yet athletic physique. She has blue eyes and straight black hair with side bangs and short strands over her forehead. Over the course of the series, Videl has had five different hairstyles: she originally had low pigtails reaching past her shoulder, while learning to fly from Gohan. At the end of Dragon Ball Z, her hair is flat with cropped spiky style bangs and the sides reaching down to her style of a bob cut reaching her cheeks and has bangs to frame her face. In Dragon Ball Super, her hair reached down to her shoulders with bang front and red headband. In Dragon Ball GT, Videl's hair grows long, reaching her lower back and done in a braided ponytail with a few strands hanging over her forehead and ears.
In her youth, Videl usually wears a long white shirt that went past her waist with tight black spandex compression shorts that reach her upper thighs, black gloves, green shoes, and gold hair clips for her pigtails.
She has the pale skin complexion, blue eyes, and straight black hair with side bangs and short strands over her base forehead that she's inherited traits her father's laughter and bears a striking resemblance to her late mother, Miguel.
After she began training with Gohan in the new hairstyle: shorter hair is flat with cropped spiky style bangs, a white sleeveless loose shirt, a pink T-shirt, same black spandex biking short shorts, black fingerless gloves, purple socks and yellow boots as her tournament outfit attire. 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 Videl was healed with a Senzu Bean—and for the majority of the Buu Saga—she wears white pants, a blue and orange "FIGHT" T-shirt with an orange long-sleeved shirt underneath (white in the original manga), orange shoes and retains her short hair. During Broly - Second Coming, she wears a bright maroon dress with a green cloth wrapping around the waist, with a large hat and grey stockings. In Fusion Reborn, she wears clothes similar to her Buu Saga outfit only with alternate colors. In Wrath of the Dragon, she wears a yellow long-sleeved shirt and a white mini skirt that reached her upper thighs.
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 with long-sleeved pink undershirt, and slippers at Gohan's house and at the 26th Martial Arts Tournament, she wears a red mini skirt, white short sleeve undershirt, red jacket, brown belt, and brown boots with her hair grown back.
As an adult, Videl cropped to her hair cheek length, having it frame her face and has bangs.
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.
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 put 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, and teenage tomboy style into a typical house-wife style, indicating how much Videl has mellowed out to becoming more domestic character than before.
In Vegeta Saga and Frieza Saga, Videl looks nothing like her father, which means she must have looked a lot like her late mother. Her child outfit attire is the purple long-sleeved shirt with the teddy face on the front, grey shorts, purple shoes, and purple bows tied in her hair for the pigtails early Vegeta Saga Namek Saga and Frieza Saga.
In Cell Saga, her preteen years of 10 years old and later she's turned 11 years old on her birthday during in the Cell Games Saga in three months later after the Cell Games, she's a little bit short height and has a small body than Gohan. On her 11th birthday party, later she's wore change into the white t-shirt, long-sleeve purple shirt underneath, black capris, pink bows for the pigtails, and yellow shoes. She wears a white shirt with tight black spandex 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 older brother, Jimmy and Kayla fight Perfect Cell in the Cell Games to hide behind the rocks with her listening device without Cell noticed her in her hiding spot.
The gold hair pieces the same ones that Videl wears in her pigtails (before Majin Buu Saga beginning) actually belonged to her late mother, Miguel. As a young child, Videl was always fascinated by these gold hair pieces because to her they were beautiful, and she would always try to put them on to play pretend from her birthday. After Miguel passed away, it was revealed that Miguel wrapped them in a small gift-box on her birthday and her father was going to give them to Videl personally as a gift.Videl had found her mother’s hair pieces again while cleaning out the house. Because she had long hair at the time, She wore them in pigtails as a tribute to her mother. This shocked Hercule as his daughter now really resembled her mother a lot more.
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 herself in the anime series during the Cell Saga she's did appears on the anime series. 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 July 14 of 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 10, before she's turned 11 from her birthday after the Cell Games, she was 11 in the manga, Videl won in the Junior Division of the 24th World Martial Arts Tournament and become the member of the rich family after the Cell Games. 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 and meets his family and friends in Majin Buu Saga) and she misses her mother, who's died and passed away at the disease after she gives birth to her, since she was still a baby; (she and her older brother raised by their father in her whole life until she reach her teen years). 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's want to following her brother's steps as the powerful fighter and martial artist as she's adored her big brother take care of her a lot at home, she does respect for him of being his baby sister as he's truly caring about her like their late mother did, she's always following him everywhere, and seeing him to meets the Z Fighters were his friends in his years after their mother died. She's also have the good friendship with Kayla, who's bears a striking resemblance to her as a twin friend and have a disability: Autism most of her life; but she has the China blunt bang front as she's looks like her ancestor is that she's the reincarnated princess, because she's married to her older brother and she's a loving 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 and participate of learn Kayla's physical fighting skill moves, afterimage technique and afterimage strike in battlefields by learning about his adventures and saving the world with his friends over the years from evil forces and destruction.
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 on her birthday.
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, she's feisty and stubborn, much like Chi-Chi, and Bulma's personality, who is happy and easy-going 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). Videl is quite perceptive as she had doubts about her father's claims of defeating Cell and correctly deduced that Gohan was both the mysterious "Golden Fighter" and Great Saiyaman, as well as ultimately coming to suspect that Gohan was the boy who fought Cell Games and saved her life and her brother and father from Cell.
She was also crafty enough to get Gohan to accidentally reveal he was Great Saiyaman, which she uses to blackmail him. She is also a competitive fighter as she blackmailed Gohan in order to get him to enter the tournament as she wanted to fight him after seeing his abilities and deduced he was the son of the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament champion due to sharing the same surname, though she also demanded he teach her how to fly to ensure it would be a fair fight, which also shows she was not fooled by her father's claims that such techniques were simple tricks. 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. Despite her and Chi-Chi's similar personalities, she did not get along with Gohan's mother at first, which was made worse by Chi-Chi's assumption that Videl and Gohan were dating, to both her and Gohan's embarrassment and denial, though after spending time with him she started to take a liking to him and his family.
When Gohan suggests she cut her hair short, Videl blushes a bit, thinking Gohan prefers girls with short hair, but Gohan obliviously states that it's for practical reasons, since short hair would be better in a fight, she screams that her hair is her business and flies off, though she ultimately decides to follow his sound advice, much to Gohan's utter confusion. Due to being unaware of Goku's death, she mistakenly assumed that his father was estranged from his family until Gohan explained the fact that his father was dead and had returned to life for the tournament, which ironically was the result of her convincing Gohan to enter. Videl herself was understandably shocked by this and various other odd occurrences during the tournament, though she eventually became used to these things over the course of the Majin Buu conflict. 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 into more soft, kind and gentle like her late mother, Miguel at the end of Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball GT anime series.
She was a young child, that she was meek, soft and sweet child as the preteen of age 10 (before turning 11-years-old on her birthday after the Cell Games) the same age as Gohan as she's meeting Gohan as they were children at the Cell Games for the first time during in the Cell Saga in May 26 of Age 767; before the Majin Buu Saga after he's saved her life from evil Cell. When she's meet Perfect Cell for the first time after he's found her from her hiding spot behind Gohan and Kayla, she was too scared of him after she's learned the truth about Cell from both Jimmy and Kayla. But she's been being hurt and insulated by Cell called her a "Poor Orphan" in front of her father brother and his students which made her fears and cries in tears real; her brother, Jimmy was too friendly and sensitive boy being insulated by Cell too, and Z Fighters. Jimmy told Cell to leave her and their father alone where he's protecting them and force to watch Cell Juniors beating her brother near death next to Krillin on the ground that she was too scared of Cell.
She felt too scared of Perfect Cell, because he's the pure evil, cold-hearted, ruthless villain to terrorize the world and destroy the entire Universe like Frieza did. By listening to Gohan's background story, he's just like her as she have the same background as his past and seeing Cell's true evil nature. Videl got scared of Cell, she's thinking that he's staring at her and he is going to kill her with Frieza's Death Beam technique at her in front of Gohan with tears and fears and saw Gohan's hidden powers that he going to Super Saiyan 2. Gohan felt similar to her since he's having a relationship with his mother is overprotective nature of him and loss of his father twice. She's was getting too uncomfortable with her father's overprotective nature of her from the teenage boys and her older brother tried to protect her from real danger situations like Cell.
Gohan was refused to let them insult her, her father and brother; with mean nicknames and came to her defense from Cell and Cell Juniors tries to kill them by saving their lives. She's decided to adopting Gohan's nature of not giving up and keep be stronger enough to protect her friends and family on Earth. She's begun to falling in love with Gohan from the beginning as they were children by saving her life and save the world. She also learns truth about that Gohan is truly defeated Cell from seven years ago before Trunks, Goten and Melissa were born, not her father and her big brother was speaking the truth about Frieza and Cell's true evil nature. She somehow knew her father was lying about defeating Perfect Cell and took the credit.
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. This also shows that she knows her husband's character well enough to know he would never cheat on her and it is implied that she was able to see right through Barry Kahn's consoling act (she likely realized the movie star was just "acting" concerned) which is likely another example of her intelligence (she is also likely not easily fooled give she has a father who well known as a gifted liar capable of deceiving a large number of Earth's population, presumably having learned to see through such deception).
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 adored her big brother to take care of her to teach her in martial arts at home together and listen her brother's adventure stories. She was scared of see her brother get beaten by Cell Juniors were order by Cell in front of her and Gohan. She's getting along being a polite aunt and mother figure with her niece and nephew, Melissa and Tommy.
Videl sharing her frustrations over her father's arrogance and overprotective nature of her and her brother in their childhood and given a life by the death of their mother story to Gohan, Gohan's mother; Chi-Chi, who's overprotective nature in his childhood that she's won't let him train with his father in martial arts and makes him study that she's felt similar personalities to him and share the same background of Gohan. She wanted to become the superhero with Gohan to fight crime for justice in Satan City as the Great Saiyawoman. Then she's unaware that realizing that he's related to and just like her which she's understanding that she feels what she has the same past as Gohan, her mother died when she was a baby and not strong enough as her father and brother.
In her youth, under a different standard than normal teenagers, Videl highlighted various leadership skills in her methods of handling affairs with other adults. As a trusted crime-fighting, vigilante in the new christened Satan City, sheltered under the belief that her father was the hero of the planet, thus increasing her to have a heightened assertion in her martial arts skills. She fancies herself a hero of justice in Satan City, and works of her own accord with the police force to take down criminals, showing an intolerance to crime and corruption.
Headstrong and independent, Videl is far from meek, and is more than willing to stand up to even the likes of Gohan and hardened criminals when the need arises. Selflessly enough to place herself into danger, even though it doesn't involve her, the woman was well acclimated to the status of "celebrity", and earned the respect of the people who knew her and her father. Despite her seemingly noble nature, Videl has shown she isn't above manipulating others to fall into her desires, and even used blackmail to accomplish her desires, threatening to reveal Gohan's status as the "Great Saiyaman" should he not enter the 25th World Martial Arts Tournament.
In her free time and even during school, she uses her combat skills to fight crime, which gives her a very good reputation among the people and enjoys a high level of popularity. She is certainly one of the strongest fighters outside Son Goku's circle and friends. She will slowly fall in love with Son Gohan, even more when she learns that he is the real savior who eliminated Cell and save her life.
Dragon Ball ZEdit
Cell Saga EditMain article: Cell Games Saga
When ten days later, Videl tried to begging and pleasing her father several times at their home about having accompany with him by going to the Cell Games Tournament Area with him and her big brother to see fight Perfect Cell, then he's just said "No.", she sadly went to her bedroom, gets frustrated and looked out of her bedroom window, she saw her older brother, Jimmy flying away along with Z Fighters and Kayla in their high-speed flight over to the Cell Games past her house. Videl was still determined to her father and brother fight the evil Cell, either with his approval or not just like her older brother wants to pleased him since he was younger in his childhood to make the great adventures with Z Fighters as he's secretly turns grows much stronger into the super-human and high-speed flight like Tien, Yamcha, and Krillin did as he's already become the member of the Z Fighters as the Earth's Special Forces now since his childhood past.
She's begin to packing her packing binoculars, and listening device in her backpack, get ready to sneaking out of her bedroom and went outside of the house, that time, it's her father was opened and closed doors in his limo vehicle car to get ready go to the Cell Games, Videl's trained eyes spotted the small jet helicopter next of her father's car was lazily left open and talked Jimmy on the cellphone in their conversations. With her near super-human speed, agility and a small body, Videl was able to reach the jet helicopter undetected, Mr. Satan was too busy being full of himself to notice about his daughter sneaking into the small jet helicopter ted off the ground and ready to fly by following her father at the Cell Games, when she's arrived to see the view of the ring above Perfect Cell standing it to fight Goku and Z Fighters as the Gold Fighters and successfully manages to land it just outside of the Cell Games ring next to the mountain.Videl just slipped out of jet helicopter, and quickly ran to a good hiding place behind some nearby rocks mountain before anybody could see her. Fortunately for Videl, the announcer, Jimmy Firecracker, Miss Piiza and his cameraman on a nearby ridge rocks were too busy focusing on her father's students (Lionel, Caroni and Pirozhki), her big brother, Z Fighters and Cell so they didn't notice or see her hiding. Even Cell was also too busy to pay attention himself and Z Fighters on the tournament ring to get ready to fighting him. Jimmy can see her and using his telepathy to told her to hide in the rocks go take cover safety. She's understandably heard him, and stay hidden behind the rocks to watch. Meanwhile, using a listening device out of her backpack that she always carried with her to quickly get in the first place on any secret about the Cell Games Tournament ring, Videl Satan overheard every syllable and observed every action while hiding behind some rocks. Videl just slapped one of her hands onto her forehead and sighted in embarrassments at some of her father's top students with their attacks were ineffective end at their defeated by Cell already seeing herself and her older brother, Jimmy was too turn red in his face with embarrassment by being insulting his nickname by Cell.
"Way to make yourself defeated by look real smart thinking, daddy."
"That's boy looks about my age. He can't really be thinking of fighting Cell is he? He seems very cute through, for a boy. Wait minute?! What am I thinking?! I'm Videl Satan! I'm not suppose to like boys! Stupid, sometimes my sweet and gentle side of myself get the better of me."
As the battle between Goku and Cell power up and fight continued to intensify, the more and more techniques and abilities of others, Videl became convinced that is what she was witnessing wasn't an optical illusions or tricks as her father was so vehemently claiming. The force of the blast damaged Videl's listening device, so now she would have to get closer in order to hear any of the Z Fighters conversations. She's horrified witnessing Cell is regeneration himself with Piccolo's cells after Goku blast him with the Instant Kamehameha wave and watching Goku and Cell continue fighting each other.
Videl needed to get closer so that, whenever there was a lull in the fighting, Videl would sneak up to a much closer vantage point and survived. She was about 70 yards off when Goku finally gave up and he's choose his son joining side with Jimmy and Kayla fighting Perfect Cell. Videl couldn't believe what she was seeing, the young boy named Gohan (Videl had overheard Z Fighters, her brother and Kayla heard them refer to him by his name and also he's best friend of her older brother and Kayla) was actually fighting Cell and holding his own with Jimmy and Kayla as his teammates and back up. She could tell by the way that he was dodging and he was somehow holding back. She's also watch Kayla's physical rush attacks and powering up to against Cell with hand-to-hand combat battle in the desert floor.
Unfortunately for Videl, one of Cell's blast attacks that Gohan dodged hit too close to her position and shockwave fried her listening device. Now Videl had to get even closer to the action if she was to hear anything that she's being to listen Gohan's background story to Cell about his past: he was attacking Raditz, training with Piccolo, and fighting the Ginyu Force, Garlic, Jr. and Frieza, when she's realizing that he's related to and just like her which she's now understands that she feels what she has the same past as Gohan, her mother died when she was a small baby and not strong enough to close like her father and brother did, that her big brother is already the strongest super-human now like Z Fighters were his friends. She's seeing Perfect Cell stepped on Gohan's head to make him angry to see his hidden powers, he's stepping on Jimmy's back and strangled Kayla in his arm, then later, Cell continue punching Gohan and Gohan jump to dodge his attack. She watches Gohan power up in air, kick Cell in the lip with breed, confront Cell and dodge all of Cell using Frieza's Death Beams.
When Gohan was being viciously bear hugged by Perfect Cell, Videl managed to get behind some rocks where two fighters were. Videl winced as she heard the boy's screams, it's just hurt to listen, he's dropped Gohan laying on the ground, witness Cell beat her older brother painful in stomach, then he's tossed him there next to Goku and other Z Fighters right on the cliff, stealing the Senzu Beans from Krillin, he's about going to kill Kayla with Frieza's Death Beam pointing at her, her older brother, Zesmond almost injured, but stills alive for her by push her to another side, he's begins to brutally beaten Kayla up into severely injures, crushing her head to make her scream and cries with tears as he's continued to torture her in front of Gohan and everyone as he's knocked both her and her mother unconscious laying on the ground and kick Gohan to the wall. 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, she's staying hidden behind Gohan in the rocks by listening 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, Gohan, Videl, Jimmy, and Kayla. 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 she's felt horrific on the death of Android 16 by Cell for the first time in her life too real.Perfect Cell then creates eight blue-skinned Cell Juniors and has them to attack Z Fighters include Jimmy on the cliff. Gohan watches in horror and becomes angry as his friends and father are mercilessly beaten by the Cell Jrs, see her older brother Jimmy help Z Fighters to protect Goku and Cell order his Cell Juniors to kill them all. She's watched her older brother gets painfully beaten near death along with Krillin on the ground by other two Cell Juniors and see Kayla was still unconscious on the ground after Cell beating on her. Videl quietly carefully gets head down to behind the rocks below closely Gohan and Kayla is, but Cell heard the noise to pay attention to Gohan and Kayla and Videl was too scared that Cell might to see her in a large rock hidden spot. Videl gets her head down below the nearby rocks behind Gohan and Kayla. Cell noticed a glimpse of a little head with pale skin color, blue eyes and black hair in pigtails close resembles Kayla, in fact, he's sensed that she was Jimmy's younger sister and Mr. Satan's daughter that quickly away hid in the large rocks behind Gohan and Kayla were.
"Oh no, it's not like they're tried to kill my big brother for real, 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!"
Perfect Cell grabbed the hiding Videl by the back of her white shirt and then he retracted his arm while still holding her. As, he's see Kayla was still alive softly moaning to begin get up to tell him to let her go or fight with him again, walking towards Cell to charge at him, but she's gets too weaker to fight him from her injuries, kick her across the ground besides the large rocks and falling unconscious again to next to her big brother and mother.Videl continued to kicks and punches Cell's arm to no effect while she screamed constantly for him to let her go. Gohan was seriously shocked by girl's beautiful sudden appearance in his eyes as a most beautiful girl.
"Wait! Don't do it! Cell! She's just a innocent girl, she's got nothing to do with all this! — Gohan screamed begged Cell to hurt Videl.
"Yes Gohan, just another so-called a innocent girl. But if her death is what sets you off, she's the one who's sneaking around here for the first place, watching us fighting each other along and end up to distracted me from unleashed your hidden powers in the real threats, but expect, it won't be next time. After all, she's Jimmy's baby sister and Mr. Satan's daughter, it's a shame that I will kill her for real and after Jimmy got beaten up, she's next, then you can just blame yourself for being so stubborn like Kayla from the beginning! — Cell threats to hurt Videl for real to see Gohan's hidden powers.
Videl stopped flailing around after she heard what Cell was planning to do. Videl was now too scared and paralysed with fear as as she's knew now what was coming and so tears started welling up in her eyes filled with fear.
Videl finally understands the truth about Cell was very cold-hearted, cruel, ruthless, and pure evil villain like Frieza did to destroy the entire universe, that he's one who killed Shaun and Danielle in their home, watch Cell almost killed Zesmond after he's sacrificed himself to protect Kaylah from death, but he's still alive and unconscious laying on the ground alongside with his baby sister and mother, she's fears that she begins to felt realized that Kayla was right along about Cell's true evil nature, when she will get her turn, and ended up just like her big brother on the ground. Gohan couldn't look as Cell hold the captive young Videl thrust in his arm for fatal shot and watching his best friend beaten by Cell Juniors with next to Krillin, but he was stopped midway by an unexpected arrival. The disembodied head of Android 16 rolled around to where his face at Gohan. He had been thrown by Mr. Satan, who shut his eyes, cowardly took cover behind some rocks having not noticed see his injured son got almost beaten nearby death by Cell Jrs next to Krillin on the ground and his daughter being captive held in Perfect Cell's arms because he was so scared to help them.
Cell threw her to the ground in between Gohan and the head before walking to selfless Android. "Uug....This sentimental downpour is killing me. It's so nice help 16, but I plan doing this my way." — Cell crushed the peaceful Android's face. "Nobody asked you, you factory reject.", said Cell, mocking the peaceful Android's brave sacrifice. Cell turns around looking at her and pointed his finger at Videl as he's preparing to kill her with Frieza's Death Beam attack in front of Gohan. "You're next! Little girl! Just like your big brother, Videl." — Cell with an evil smirk on his face and evil laughter, she fearfully crawling backward with screams and cry with real tears in her life. It was sent beyond the breaking point by Cell threatening to kill an innocent girl in front of him, Jimmy gets beaten badly and Android 16's death. Then Videl looked up at savior with a look of awe as tears from her eyes were swept away by the high winds and Gohan transforms into the Super Saiyan 2 in front of her, Z Fighters, Piccolo, Goku, Jimmy, Zesmond, Shaun, Danielle, Cell and then Cell Jr grabbed her behind drag away next to the another Cell Junior with Krillin and Jimmy were, Gohan take Senzu Beans from Cell, he's moves so fast that it appears that he has teleported to where Krillin, Jimmy and Videl 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 killed two Cell Juniors with powerful two blasts.
Gohan rescues Krillin and Videl, then Jimmy ran towards an unconscious injury Kayla, gave them Senzu Beans and kills another of the Cell Jrs. Cell order his Cell Juniors to kill Videl and her brother and father, and Gohan was risking his life to save them from Cell and Cell Juniors. 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. Videl ran into the mountain to hide from Cell and watch them fighting each other in combats. Meanwhile, Videl stood around and witnessed the whole battle between Gohan and Cell, see Cell throwing up to Android 18 out and tried to blow the Earth by blow himself up like a balloon.
When the boy's father Goku vanished with Cell, Shaun, Danielle and Zesmond of Instant Transmission and saw Gohan's tears on the ground to tries call his father. Videl merely stood there in the middle of the wasteland battlefield with tears down her cheeks as she cried out for Gohan's loss.
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 like Shaun, Danielle and Zesmond did while Krillin and then Videl tries to comfort him in her arms with tears and Jimmy carried the injury unconscious Kayla in his arms. Videl nicely to comfort him to gain his confidence back to average his father's death and defeat Cell.
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, helping Kayla to average her parents and big brother and protect her. 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.
Gohan proceeded to wimpingly painful 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 precious 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 absorb her in front of you, Jimmy and her father...She smells delicious." Cell said Gohan he's sniffing Videl. Kayla was able distracted Cell at bay with abilities long enough to Gohan going to saved her.Gohan appears behind Cell, he's kicks Cell in the face, in time he need to rescue Videl from Super Perfect 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 behind the rocks.
"Uh? Are you okay?"
Birth of Melissa Edit
Kayla was going to visiting Mr. Satan, Jimmy and Videl in their new home: mansion, that she's becoming a mother of their newborn daughter about being born in a one year and then, she's giving up as famous celebrity crime fighter status have passed to Videl to make her happy, and will seeing her again until seven years.
It was that Videl made her move to see and visiting her mother's grave. She had hidden among the rockets waiting for the same boy who beat Cell to show again, so she could get some answers about what happened to his father. But she watched the boy grieve, all she could do simpathy for him.
Memories of her own mother Miguel died at childhood 10 years ago on the day of her birth, feeling her older brother misses their mother so much and he's have a sweet relationship with Kayla, who find out that she's became pregnant at the young age of turning 11-years-old in one year before Melissa was born after the Cell Games, followed her mind and all she wanted to do was to comfort him in his time of need. Videl began to slowly walk to where Gohan was crying after the spirit of his father Goku in the Other World to defeat villains and Future Trunks went left back to his timeline to defeat the Future Android 17, Future Android 18 and Future Cell.
It wasn't until she was a few feet away from him since the Cell Games as did Gohan finally notice her. He looked up at Videl with eyes full of tears, he saw that her beautiful blue eyes were glittering with sympathy and care. Gohan didn't know who was she or why she might be there, all he saw a person's shoulder to cry on. Gohan lunged at her and hugged her while he cried on her shoulder. Videl was surprised and stunned at this action at first, but she soon found herself patting him on the back to comfort him.
After a half-hour of crying and comforting who's appears right to behind him, Gohan finally let go and regained his composure. "Thanks for the shoulder, make me to never give up for losing hope and never let them down and build my confidence back to defeat Cell." — Gohan jokingly meet Videl for comfort him after the Cell Games.
"That's right, but I guess its time for proper introductions. My name is Videl...Videl Satan."
"I know your name already, Gohan. I overheard some of your friends refer to you by name, I am sorry about her father's blessed sacrifice for saving you from Cell and you do know about Jimmy is my big brother."
Over the next couple of hours, Gohan and Videl talked about their reasons and lives for being at the Cell Games and some stories about their lost loved ones and past. When they saw the sun setting, the two kids decided it was time to go part separate ways. Videl asked Gohan to become friends again until they're get older.
Gohan talk to her a truth about his mother is overprotective nature of him to makes him study to not let him train martial arts with his father, he was chosen by his father to fighting Cell, because he was stood up for them from getting hurt or kill, he's ended up saving her, her brother and father's lives from Perfect Cell and Cell Juniors at the Cell Games Tournament days ago, how did he became her big brother's best friend with Kayla since they were younger to start adventures, save the world, he's going to be a big brother of Goten, and to never give up.
Gohan waved goodbye as he flew off in midair while Videl signaled for a transport to come pick her up. As both of them headed to their respective homes, they each felt better knowing that made a new friend out of the beginning beautiful friendship. Videl is going to be aunt for the newborn niece, Melissa in one year later, Jimmy is the father, and Kayla is a mother. Videl secretly falling in love with Gohan for the first time until she will see him again seven years later as high school teenagers begin on the Majin Buu Saga.
Three months later after the Cell Games, Videl is just turned 11-year-old from her birthday with her friends and family at their new home; 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 in the small gift-box from her late mother, Miguel, reading her mother's birthday message card from her mother and won in the Junior Division of the 24th World Martial Arts Tournament. Her father revealed to her and her older brother that gold hair clips the memories were belong to late her mother, Miguel, that their mother loved them, apologize to them not telling the truth about their mother from the beginning since they were babies and Miguel truly died.
Meeting The Great SaiyamanEditMain article: Great Saiyaman Saga
In her spare time seven years later as a teenager at age seventeen as the same age as Gohan, Videl helps the police and fights crime in Satan City after Kayla retired from her crime fighter status. She becomes suspicious of Gohan after meeting him on his first day at Orange Star High School, and she even follows him for a brief time to learn more about him, but she's still remember him from 7 years ago that they were children at the Cell Games. Videl eventually discovers Gohan’s secret identity as the Great Saiyaman: in the manga, she very easily tricks Gohan into revealing his identity after stopping some thugs (she asks the Great Saiyaman how he left class, and he answers her, revealing that he is actually Gohan), in the anime, she discovers that Gohan is the Great Saiyaman after she and Gohan are involved in an attempt to return Chobi, a baby pteranodon, to its rightful parents. In both cases, she gets him to teach her how to fly using a blackmail-type of threat. In a matter of days, Videl learns how to fly, introduced her niece, Melissa to Gohan and Goten in flying training and starts to develop a liking for Gohan. She even cuts her hair one day after he had suggested it (though she initially thought he just liked girls with short hair, he explained that long hair will only get in the way during a fight). There is an awkward moment when Chi-Chi asks Gohan whether he is going to marry Videl, which embarrasses him. Also, when she becomes a great flyer, Gohan thinks that Videl is really something special. Despite the relentless teasing from friends (such as Krillin), Videl and Gohan develop a sweet kind of relationship.
The World TournamentEdit
Main article: World Tournament SagaVidel becomes very strong for a human, and enters the 25th World Martial Arts Tournament. When Videl firsts meets Goku and the other Z Fighters, Gohan explains that his father is dead as he has a halo above his head. Videl looks shocked, and then says she needs to lay down. After waiting with Gohan for the Punching Machine destroyed by Vegeta to be replaced, Videl and the other fighters who scored the highest draw their numbers for the first round. Videl goes up against Spopovich. Videl quickly gains the upper hand, even breaking Spopovich's neck, though he repairs it, shocking Videl and everyone else watching the match. Soon, the tables turn against her as Spopovich keeps getting back up after her attacks, without any visible damage.
"Doesn't he know when to give up?"
Videl starts to tire out, and Spopovich takes advantage by beating her to a pulp around the ring with a series of punches to the stomach and head. For his enjoyment, Spopovich steps on Videl's head. He pushes down on it until Videl is brought to tears (this fight was more drawn out and gruesome in the anime compared to the manga). Enraged by the sounds of Videl's moans and squeals, Gohan starts to lose control and go into a fury. He is rushing to save her when Yamu tells Spopovich to end the match, as they need to do their job. Spopovich does so and kicks her out of the ring. Gohan carries her to the infirmary, where he returns later to heal her with a Senzu Bean brought by Goku. She thanks Gohan for it, though Mr. Satan freaks out, suspicious of the boy, insisting she be checked up for poisoning.

She readily believes Gohan after he confesses he was both the mysterious Gold Fighter who appeared before the Great Saiyaman and also the golden-haired 11-years-old boy at the Cell Games seven years ago, and, having suspected that her father was not telling the truth, Jimmy truly caring about her safety and Cell's true evil personality, comes to the conclusion that Gohan beat Super Perfect Cell, Gohan was saved her life from the wrath of Cell and she's did meet Gohan when they were children at the Cell Games. She initially wants to come and help with the fight, but realizes that the enemy is beyond her league decides to turn back, stating "You better come back, cause I'm not finished with you yet, Gohan." She meets Goten, Melissa and Trunks on her way to the World Tournament Arena, and accidentally fuels them with adrenaline by telling them the story of Majin Buu, prompting the two to head for the battlefield.

She doesn't know that Gohan passes away when Kid Buu annihilates Earth. After both she and Gohan come back to life and they meet again, Videl is happy at seeing 'the idiot' again. Later, she becomes Gohan's partner in fighting crime as the Great Saiyaman II (alternately known as Saiyawoman or Saiyagirl), sporting a similar outfit and participating in the same poses she earlier found ridiculous.

Film Appearances Edit
Bojack Unbound Edit
Main article: Dragon Ball Z: Bojack Unbound
Videl was following her father and older brother to
Broly - Second Coming EditMain article: Dragon Ball Z: Broly - Second Coming
"What are you doing? There are defenseless people down there!"
Videl was in a quest for collecting the Dragon Balls, along with Goten, Melissa and Trunks. At that time only the four-star ball was remaining and the rest of them were in the bag, when a tiff occurs between Videl and Trunks for collecting the last Dragon Ball. This results in them losing the Dragon Ball, amidst a flock of birds. They start searching for the ball and as usual Goten and Trunks start to feel hungry. So Videl, Melissa and the half-Saiyans were forced to rest in a village nearby. Videl, on reaching the village, comes to know that a girl was going to be sacrificed that day, as a treat to a local beast which has terrorized the village. So, she and the half-Saiyan duo take matters in their hands and decide to go after the beast themselves. Goten, Melissa and Trunks defeated the beast, a dinosaur, with little effort (with Videl being in such shock at how the kids easily took out the dinosaur that she barely declared the need to sit down and accidentally slipped on the ice) with little effort and the three enjoyed a huge banquet at the village.
The next day, Videl hears a yell and rushes to the seaside spot. There, she finds Broly, who has come to the village for taking revenge against Goku. She gives a lone fight as Goten, Melissa and Trunks were fast asleep, but is easily defeated by the Super Saiyan. She is left unconscious in the reservoir, half drowned. Later, when she gains consciousness, she finds Gohan fighting with Broly and the former asks her to stay clear, as there was a lot of danger around and was pleased that she was alive. When Broly delivers a huge blast, all the fighters except Gohan become unconscious. When Videl gains her consciousness she throws the piece of crystal that she has collected towards Legendary Super Saiyan Broly in an effort to distract him and let Gohan gain an upper hand. However, the effort from throwing the crystal saps her of her reserve energy and she loses consciousness afterwards. She then meets Gohan at the end complaining why he hadn't helped her when she was drowning, which starts a petty telling off at Gohan, concluding the story with Trunks' sentence "This is the way they communicate".
Fusion Reborn Edit
Main article: Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn
Videl appears in Fusion Reborn, initially, at Gohan's home, helping Chi-Chi with the dishes, when she is called by the police to help them clean the mess in the city.

Gohan, Jimmy, Kayla and Videl together as a team keep the people safe from the zombies, Frieza and past villains, while Goten, Melissa and Trunks team up to defeat The Dictator. Videl and Gohan, after finishing their assignment, go to some unknown place. Later, they are shown in the end, when the half-Saiyan duo tells them that they have been spying on them all the time, and they saw Gohan and Videl kissing each other. Gohan and Videl are both shocked and embarrassed to know this and Gohan pleads not to tell this to his mom, giving a humorous ending to the movie (this ending is exclusive to the Funimation Dub).
Wrath of the Dragon Edit
Main article: Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon
Videl and Gohan simultaneously enter the class after thrashing some goons in the city, when Videl gets a call from the police that a man (Hoi) was threatening to jump. Gohan and Videl immediately go to rescue the man, who is very arrogant, and jumps when Videl loses her temper. Gohan, however, rescues him and takes him to some fountain park. There, the man introduces himself as Hoi, and asks Gohan to help him open a music box which has imprisoned Tapion, a hero from the South Galaxy. Gohan and Videl try in vain to open it and hence start to find the Dragon Balls to wish Shenron himself to open it. Due to this, Tapion was released and Hoi started behaving differently, which clearly caught the eye of Videl. Later, that day, a huge monster (the lower part of Hirudegarn), starts destroying the city. When Gohan and Videl come to know about this, they quickly commission themselves in order to save the city. Here they find a monster nearly twenty stories high, threatening the entire city. Gohan and Videl start fighting with the monster and Gohan is forced to unleash his Unlocked Potential form, to fight with the monster. He defeats the monster with relative ease, when he finds that it's vulnerable the moment after it attacks. The monster vanishes out of nowhere and Videl quickly catches some movement in the top of the building. Gohan determines that as Hoi and comes to know that he was the man behind all these series of events. Later, Videl is shown fighting the fully-developed Hirudegarn, which defeats her with little effort.

The Evil Parasite, BabyEdit
Main article: Baby Saga

By the end of the series, she has likely died of old age as her daughter Pan, who is shown to have a grandson, is the last surviving Z Fighter 100 years later.
- Manga and Anime
Unlike other fighters, who have a balanced mix of physical and energy-based techniques, Videl uses only pure physical attacks. According to Gohan, she had already surpassed her father even before she began learning to use ki. Though she is capable of using basic Ki Blasts after Gohan trained her, she has little control over them. Her fighting style is to wait for her opponent to attack, and then use their own strength against them in a dodge or counter, playing on their momentum.
Despite being powerful by humans standards, and possessing some degree of enhanced strength relative to normal people, like her father, Videl has not trained to the degree of the Z Warriors, and is not even near Krillin, her older brother, Jimmy, Yamcha or Master Roshi's level (all four of which are entirely human). As proof of this, Videl cannot tolerate high-speed flight, and a single bullet is capable of inflicting heavy damage, if not lethal, depending on the area shot.
In Dragon Ball Z: Broly - Second Coming, Videl manages to put up a decent fight against Super Saiyan Broly, though she is ultimately no match for the Super Saiyan and is knocked unconscious and she was no match for Broly's Legendary Super Saiyan form, though like Krillin she managed to survived her encounter with the Legendary Super Saiyan.
In Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn, she and Great Saiyaman work together to deal with the zombies invading Earth due to Janemba's actions in Other World. However it should be noted most of the undead were weak enough that even her father had little trouble fighting them.
As Great Saiyawoman, Videl is capable of working in coordination with Great Saiyaman to combat criminals and threats as shown in Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon however she is no match for more powerful entities like Hirudegarn.
- Video games
In Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2, during the Fusion Reborn story, Gohan believes Videl to be strong enough to aid him in battle against Cui and Salza, without any worry that she may be hurt.
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, Videl's ability to use Ki Blast is better, as she can fire standard ki blasts, chargeable ki blasts, and is capable of performing the Energy Barrage techniques, Consecutive Energy Blast as a Super Skill and Full Power Energy Blast Volley as an Ultimate Skill.
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Videl is shown to be finally capable of firing an Energy Wave, in the form of a Full Power Energy Wave which appears as one of her Ultimate Skills in her Natade Village Traditional Costume 1 Skillset. However despite this newfound ability as well as her ability to fire standard ki blasts, she is one of the few characters in Xenoverse 2 who cannot perform a Charged Ki Blast (a new gameplay mechanic in Xenoverse 2 that lets characters fire chargeable ki blasts), indicating her ki manipulation abilities are still far from perfect in Xenoverse 2.
In Dragon Ball Fusions, Videl (as Great Saiyaman 2) is capable of performing powerful ki based techniques originally used by her daughter Pan, such as Maiden Burst and Maiden Blast.

Videl has been a playable character in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi, Super Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball Z: Bakuretsu Impact, Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team, the Raging Blast series, and Dragon Ball Kai: Ultimate Butōden. She is playable in her base form with her Great Saiyawoman costume and moveset as a transformation in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 and Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3, as well as Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World, Dragon Ball Z: Dragon Battlers, and Dragon Ball Heroes with Great Saiyawoman as a different character (her super attacks as Great Saiyawoman are the same as Videl, just with 'Justice' names instead. Her ultimates are not the same). In Budokai 3, if the ki blast button is pressed, Videl does not shoot ki blasts but will kick her opponent (the ki blast button can be held for Videl to charge up her kick).
Videl is playable in Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury for only one fight. She also appears in Dragon Ball Z: Legendary Super Warriors, Dragon Ball GT: Transformation, Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors 2, Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai, and Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi, but not as a playable character. Videl also appears in the arcade game Dragon Ball Z: W Bakuretsu Impact.
She is also playable in Dragon Ball Xenoverse, with her Great Saiyaman 2 clothes, her Natade Village clothes from Broly: The Second Coming, and her Buu Saga clothes as alternate outfits. She is also capable of using basic Ki Blasts, chargeable Ki Blasts, and Energy Barragetechniques such as Consecutive Energy Blast and Full Power Energy Blast Volley. She can even use some of her father's techniques such as Dynamite Kick, Rolling Hercule Punch, and Miracle Knee!. Her World Tournament hairstyle also appears as a custom hair option for female Saiyans and Earthlings. Her Tournament Training outfit also appears as a clothing option under the name Videl's Clothes (which interestingly can be worn by both males and females). In the sequel she is capable of using Full Power Energy Wave in her Natade Village Traditional Costume 1 skillset. In addition to her pigtails outfit (High School T-shirt), Natade Village Costumes 1 & 2, and her Tournament Outfit (Training T-shirt) from Xenoverse, her "Fight" shirt appears in Xenoverse 2 as alternate costume skillset under the name Fight T-shirt (interestingly Videl wore the Fight T-shirt in cutscenes following Kid Buu's defeat in Xenoverse). Unlike in Xenoverse, Videl's alter-ego Great Saiyaman 2 acts as a separate playable character from Videl and is no longer just an alternate costume skillset for Videl. Though she her ki control is depicted as being far better in Xenoverse 2, Videl/Great Saiyaman 2 is incapable of firing Charged Ki Blasts (and thus she lacks a default Ki Blast Type entirely). Additionally, Pan will also state that her mother taught her the Justice Rush when performing the skill. In both Xenoverse and Xenoverse 2, she and Gohan train the each game's respective Future Warrior (custom protagonist) together as a team, making them unique among the selectable masters in both games. Interestingly, despite training them as a team, most of the skills they teach are actually Videl's (with the exception of Gohan's Ki Blast Cannon skill in Xenoverse). In Xenoverse 2, all the skills taught by Gohan & Videl are Videl's skills.
In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, her 25th World Tournament and Buu Saga hairstyle appears as Custom Hair Option Type 5 for female Saiyans and Earthlings. Her bob hairstyle from the 28th World Tournament at the end of Dragon Ball Z appears as Custom Hair Option Type 14 for female Saiyans and Earthlings. Her pigtails hairstyle appears as Custom Hair Option Type 28 for female Saiyans and Earthlings. If the Future Warrior (Xenoverse 2) is an Earthling, they will start the game investigating the Time Rift anomaly around Satan House and will spot Great Saiyaman and Great Saiyaman 2 practicing their poses. After Gohan performs his Justice Pose he tells Videl to pose, but she is reluctant to due to her finding it embarrassing and pointless, though Great Saiyaman manages to convince her to pose which she nails first try according to Gohan. She also finds that posing felt pretty good and becomes more enthusiastic about posing. The Future Warrior can return later and join Jaco, Saiyaman 1, & Saiyaman 2 in defending Earth from evil. Videl's Fight T-shirt appears as a clothing option under the name Videl T-shirt while her High School T-shirt appears as a clothing option under the name Orange Star High School T-shirt both of which can be worn regardless of gender or race. Videl's Clothes also return as an obtainable outfit. Videl's version of the Great Saiyaman Suit appears when the suit and Great Saiyaman Helmet are worn by female characters (Earthling, Saiyan, and Majin). The description of the Great Saiyaman Helmet refers to the helmet worn by Videl as Design 2and states that Design 2 is "for girls". Additionally Videl has special dialog with Future Gohan in which Future Gohan asks who she is, with Videl responding by asking if he is Gohan. Great Saiyaman 2 also has special dialog in which she asks if he is Gohan while him responding that he is but states he doesn't know her. Both of Future Gohan's reactions indicating that he has likely never encountered either Videl, Great Saiyaman 2, or Future Videl. Mr. Satan will wonder about the fate of her counterpart from the alternate Future timeline, if the Warrior speaks to him while training under Future Gohan as part of the Masters Pack DLC. After the 1.09.00 Update, Videl gains a customizable skillset in Partner Customization, though the Future Warrior must have competed her and Adult Gohan's Initiation Test first. This skillset allows Videl's skills, outfit color, stats, and Super Souls be customized. This skillset is unique as it allows her to be equipped with certain skills such as Kamehameha, Dancing Parapara, Prepare to be Punished, and Maiden Blast though some skills must be unlocked first by spending TP Medals. The Future Warrior can also learn Videl's DUAL Ultimate Skill via speaking to her and Gohan after reaching max friendship with Videl and Adult Gohan. The warrior finds Videl and Gohan strategizing to better coordinate there attacks though they are having trouble working out how to do it with three people so they decide it would be best to pair up into teams of two. As a result the warrior learns DUAL Justice Combination from Videl and DUAL Super Kamehameha (Adult Gohan) from Adult Gohan.
In Dragon Ball Fusions, both Videl and Great Saiyaman 2 appear as separate playable characters. In this game Videl can use EX-Fusion to fuse with her daughter Pan to create Pandel, while her Great Saiyaman 2 incarnation can fuse with Great Saiyaman to create Great Saiyaman 12.

- Videl's car, seen in the introduction, has "666" written on the side of it, in further relation to the Satanic references (her name being an anagram for "Devil" and her father's name being Mr. Satan).
- In the episode "Blackmail", both Gohan and Bulma referred to her as Videl Satan, however in the Super Exciting Guide, Akira Toriyama states that "Mr. Satan" is actually a ringname for her father.
- During the World Martial Arts Tournament, when the spectators are shown cheering, there is a sign nearby, saying "Bidel" with a "B" instead of a "V". To make further mistakes, in later episodes, another sign is shown, saying "Beedel".
- In the 1990s edition of the Spanish manga, her name is written as "Biddle".
- Videl and her mother-in-law Chi-Chi have a couple of things in common with each other. Both are powerful Martial Artists (though not as strong as their husbands or children) who have fought in the World Tournament, and at some point both were raised by their wealthy fathers and mothers never appears in the manga and anime series.
- Videl has the distinction of being first World Martial Arts Tournament Junior Division champion. This makes her the only known female Martial Arts Champion of any tournament (or division).
- Despite her and her father's names, being based off Satanic traits, the two are quite heroic and love justice, which was a factor that lead Videl to heaven during the Buu Saga filler.
- Both Goten and Videl share the same voice actresses in the English dub by Funimation and the French dub.
- Both Alyson and Videl share the same voice actresses of Kari Wahlgren as Kid Alyson, Alyson as preteen, and Kid Videl and Videl as a preteen in Saiyan Saga, Frieza Saga and Cell Saga in the English dub by Funimation and the French dub.
- Videl have Kayla as her twin friend and sister-in-law.
- Videl has the older brother, Jimmy, who's born in Age 756 and a year older than Videl.
- Videl's new haircut and pale skin color similar to Fasha.
- Videl being born in Age 757 rather than the original Age 756.
- Videl and Gohan are the physically same age in the entire Dragon Ball series.
- Videl and Gohan are the same age in the anime series from age 4 years through preteen 10-11 years old into 17-18 years old teenagers.
- Her father, Mr. Satan is the Martial Artist and her mother, Miguel is the Singer.
- While her fate is unknown in Future Trunks's timeline (not counting Dragon Ball Super, in which she was erased by Future Zen-Oh or killed by Goku Black, Future Zamasu, or Fused Zamasu), in Xenoverse 2 if the Future Warrior's mentor is Future Gohan, and they talk to Mr. Satan, he asks what is the deal with him and Future Videl in that timeline.
- Videl is born in Age 756 (according to the manga) and Age 757 (according to Super Perfect Guide anime for the anime).
- Videl is one year older than Gohan in the manga, meaning that she was at least 18 years old in her debut (and already a legal adult at that time) and 28 at the end of the original story, but is the same age as him in the anime.
- It should be noted however that Gohan is physically one year older than he should be due to spending a year training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber thus they would both be physically the same age even in the manga due to the time differential allowing Gohan to leap ahead in age by one year. Thus the anime would be accurate based on their physical ages and may have even taken that fact into account.
