While attending Orange Star High School, Gohan foils a bank robbery using his Super Saiyan form, causing his classmates to notice the similarities between him and this mysterious, Golden Fighter. Gohan convinces Bulma to create a disguise for him and she creates a watch, which he uses to transform into a superhero alter ego he dubs Great Saiyaman. He begins assisting Mr. Satan's daughter Videl in fighting various criminals, however Videl grows suspicious and manages to trick Gohan into revealing his identity as Great Saiyaman, which she uses to blackmail Gohan into teaching her how to fly and to enter the 25th World Martial Arts Tournament. During the Majin Buu conflict, Videl learns that Gohan is the one truly responsible for the defeat of Cell and slowly begins to fall in love with Gohan. Following Kid Buu's defeat, Videl creates her own alter ego called Great Saiyaman 2 ("Great Saiyawoman" in the Funimation dub) and the two begin fighting crime in Satan City as a team while still in High School. After memory of Majin Buu's rampage is erased from the minds of Earth's general population,the Saiya Squad appear to assist in stopping a jewelry store robbery only to find it had already been foiled by Good Buu who had accompanyed Bulma while she was shopping.
However by the time of Dragon Ball Super, Videl stopped using her alter-ego in order to focus on raising her and Gohan's daughter Pan. Gohan would continue fighting crime occasionally as Great Saiyaman in addition to working as a stunt double on a Great Saiyaman reboot film "Great Saiyaman vs Mr. Satan". However Barry Kahn who had been cast to play Great Saiyaman was jealous of Gohan who getting all the attention being the son-in-law of Mr. Satan and husband of Videl. Barry blackmailed his co-star Cocoa Amaguri into helping him tarnish Gohan's reputation. Meanwhile as Great Saiyaman, Gohan defeated a bank robber possessed by Watagash a dangerous alien criminal wanted by the Galactic Patrol who had escaped from Jaco's custody. Cocoa herself ended up discovering Gohan's secret identity as the real Great Saiyaman after overhearing a coversation between him and Bulma. Cocoa blackmails Great Saiyaman into flying her around and helping her do a private script rehearsal. Knowing Gohan was good person she attempted to thwart Barry by changing the location of the rehearsal, but Barry followed them learning Gohan's secret identity and taking a picture of Cocoa innocently kissing Gohan on the lips as thanks for his kind words of encouragement. Barry then showed the photo to Videl in an attempt to ruin Gohan's marriage by implying Gohan and Cocoa were having an affair. However Videl saw through Barry's act knowing Gohan would never cheat on her. Barry was later possessed by Watagash increasing his power due to Barry's evil heart and hatred of Gohan. Barry kidnapped Pan leading to a fight between him and Great Saiyaman. Barry transformed twice thanks to Watagash's possession forcing Great Saiyaman to go Super Saiyan, a form which the film director dubbed Super Great Saiyaman. Super Great Saiyaman defeats Watagash with Super Great Saiyaman Beam freeing Barry. Cocoa later blackmailed Barry into silence by threatening to tell the world he was the monster Great Saiyaman fought. Watagash was rearrested by Jaco though later escaped again after leaving Earth.
Though Gohan and Videl had pretty much retired from being superheroes by the time of Dragon Ball GT, Videl would briefly don her old Great Saiyaman Suit during the Super 17 Saga when she and Chi-Chi attempted to join the fight against Super 17 only to find he had already been defeat by Android 18 and Goku.
