Team Four Star Wiki

12-year-old Videl

Videl (ビーデル, Bīderu) is the daughter of Mr. Satan and Miguel. She is first referenced by Mr. Satan himself in Opening Serumonies*, with Cell calling her a "poor orphan" which her father realizes that Cell was insulting his child. She makes her physical debut (in original animation) in episode 59.

She is Gohan's wife and the mother of Pan.


Videl is a tough, tomboyish character, raised with fame all around her. She was a meek and soft child as she meets Gohan as they were children in Cell Games during the Cell Saga. She's feisty and stubborn, compared to Bulma's personality, who is happy and easy-going. 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.



Videl was born in Age 756 and 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 11, Videl won in the Juniors Division of the 24th World Martial Arts Tournament. Videl's mother died at some point during her childhood, leaving Mr. Satan to raise Videl alone. 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) and she misses her mother greatly.

Voice actress[]

  • In episode 59, she was voiced by Sarah Anne Williams. Due to the cancelation of DBZ:A Season 4, she will remain the sole voice actress of Videl, unless she shows up in Dragon ShortZ.


  • Her liking Kid Gohan's hairdo is a reference to her later attraction to Gohan, as well as how she will have a near identical hairstyle once she cuts hers.
  • She likes Harry Potter.
    • This could be a reference to Babidi showing up around the time she makes her debut.
  • She first appears as a 11-year-old child who's around the same age group as Gohan (if not slightly older) during the Cell Games as she watches Gohan chosen by his father, Goku, to fight Perfect Cell.
  • Videl is born in Age 756 (according to the manga) and Age 757 according to Super Perfect Guide for the anime).
