"Goten, you're a... a Super Saiyan! Oh my gosh! This is unbelievable!"

"The Newest Super Saiyan" (はんもビックリ!てんばくはつパワー Gohan mo Bikkuri! Goten no Bakuhatsu Pawā, lit. "Even Gohan is Surprised! Goten's Explosion of Power") is the seventh episode of the Great Saiyaman Saga and the two hundred sixth overall episode of the uncut Dragon Ball Z series. This episode first aired in Japan on November 10, 1993. Its original American airdate was September 24, 2001.



Goten's first on-screen Super Saiyan transformation

All over the world, the Z-Fighters prepare for the upcoming 25th World Martial Arts Tournament and Goku's return. On top of Kami's Lookout, Piccolo is under intense meditation. At Kame House, Android 18 is making Krillin train for his breakfast. At Capsule Corporation, Vegeta and Trunks have their own intense training regime in the Gravity Chamber.

Gohan has just finished breakfast and is on his way to training with Goten. Chi-Chi warns Goten not to interfere with Gohan's training. Gohan transforms into a Super Saiyan and starts his training. Goten keeps interrupting him by catching dinosaurs, but Gohan yells at him after he is almost killed by one. He then decides to let Goten help by throwing rocks at Gohan. After chucking rocks for a bit, Goten stops and says he "wants to be a Super Saiyan now". Gohan laughs, saying that becoming a Super Saiyan requires lots of training... only to be shocked when Goten transforms right in front of him.


Goten recalls his transforming in front of Chi-Chi

The stunned Gohan asks Goten when he first transformed, but the young half-Saiyan says he does not remember. When Gohan asks if Chi-Chi knows about it, Goten nods as confirmation, and then privately says to himself "She knows, alright". In a flashback, it is revealed that Chi-Chi broke down in tears and called Goten a "monster" after he turned into a Super Saiyan as a result of a sparring match, with him admitting this to Gohan when feeling down from remembering it, only for Gohan to reassure him that he's "a good little monster". He also reveals that Trunks is stronger than him because he is older.

Gohan decides that he wants Goten to be his sparring partner and the two start fighting, with Goten showing an impressive fighting style. The young Saiyan backs Gohan up against a cliff when Gohan flies up. Goten gets angry and tells Gohan to stay on the ground, because he does not know how to fly. Gohan tells his brother he will teach him, when Videl's helicopter is seen at a distance. Gohan remembers that he promised to teach her how to fly. The episode ends as Chi-Chi and Videl argue with each other, while Gohan laughs about Goten. Soon, Gohan realizes the power Goten contains and that he could become the strongest being in the universe.
