Seems Legit. .. Saiyans mature when they are around 18, but then they mature completely. Goku was a kid when he fought Picollo (sr) but when he fought junior 3 years later he w db dbz

Goku is a full on Sayian Gohan is only have sayian, sayians age slower so maybe they grow up slower.

Also Gohan has gone through intensive training since like 5 or something (I don't know, I only casually watched the show)

Whilst as I recall Goku didn't have any intense training till he met Roshi at age 12.

TBH the real answer is, who the **** knows, rule of cool and whatever the story wants screw reality.

Even considering all of Goku's training pre-timeskip was basically toplel compared to what Gohan went through training-wise before turning 8 years old...

Also something you might have missed: goku was really small as a 15 year old when he began training, but after he started eating better (when the plot jumps after the first bad guy was defeated) he quickly grew into adult size, so it might just be because Gohan has been fed and trained well

Saiyans mature when they are around 18, but then they mature completely. Goku was a kid when he fought Picollo (sr) but when he fought junior 3 years later he was as tall as Yamcha.

Gohan is half saiyan, he matures like normal kids would.

i like to think its because of how they grew up
with gohan starting his advanced training so much younger then what goku did pules the large gap in natural ability it would make sense that there bodys would very different

plus just a little nit pick (and correct me if i'm wrong) but gohan would technically be 12 because of the time he spent in the hyperbolic time chamber

Okay, but consider how big that dragonball is

Not very. Palm of his hand, maybe.

No Gohan simple goten, what was he 7-8 and a ******* super sayain ....... something is wrong here. Then the end of GT, goku jr, and vegeta jr super sayains without severe training? Also why did pan never become a super sayain?
User avatar #19 to #17 - fergij (01/13/2014) [-]
I read somewhere (not sure where exactly so who knows if its true) that the female saiyans could not become super saiyan due to their bodies not being able to hold up to the power of super saiyan. That being said idk how true it is since a 7 year old can become super saiyan apparently.
#20 to #19 - Riddick (01/13/2014) [-]
I know right? It is like da **** ?
User avatar #21 to #20 - fergij (01/13/2014) [-]
i just ignore the little wholes like that, still an amazing show and after so many episodes its probably gets a little difficult to keep things interesting and come up with new ideas
#23 to #17 - captaindropkik (01/13/2014) [-]
those two things are directly contradictory. a pattern emerged that made it seem like the stronger a parent, the stronger his child would be, but Pan never became a super saiyan because her saiyan blood was too dilute (Akira Toriyama also said he never drew up the design for a female super saiyan) which is fine... until Goku and Vegeta Jr who should have almost no saiyan blood, become super saiyans

that's just GT for you
#25 to #23 - Riddick (01/13/2014) [-]
yeah oh well Drabonball kicked ass, Dragon ball Z Blew Dragonball out of the water. GT...... no comment truly.

Saiyan getting much older right?
So i guess they grow up slower..

three year difference

I think It was more like 4 years cause I heard Goku spent some time in the hyperbolic time chamber when he was training for the 23rd martial arts world tournament, like 9 months to a year I think, so he was more closer to 19 years old, but he believed himself to be about 18.

Thanks for the 18 month heads up

Every time I see a DBZ post with Gohan in it, I laugh that they named him after rice.
User avatar #18 to #11 - dende ONLINE (01/13/2014) [-]
Better than being named after a snail.
User avatar #12 to #11 - jordanish (01/13/2014) [-]
Pretty much everyone is named after food in the Dragon Ball Universe
#16 to #12 - John Cena (01/13/2014) [-]
Or underwear.

pretty sure it was explained in the original manga, like the second volume, it was basically that he didn't get enough nutrition or something like that.
