The Dragon Ball Portal

Dragon Ball (ドラゴンボール, Doragon Bōru), created by Akira Toriyama in 1984, is an internationally famous media franchise. It consists primarily of one manga series, three different anime, eighteen animated feature films, an unofficial live-action Chinese movie, a collectible trading card game, a large number of electronic games, as well as other collectibles like action figures. Dragon Ball has an extensive online fanbase and, as of 2005, is consistently one of the most frequently searched-for terms on Google, Yahoo!, Lycos, and YouTube.

The narrative of Dragon Ball received some of its inspiration and various characters from the Chinese folk novel Journey to the West, though it diverges from the novel very quickly. It follows the adventures of its lead character, Son Goku (based on the Monkey King of the folk legend, Sun Wukong) from his childhood into old age. Dragon Ball originally included action and comedy elements, as well a significant amount of science fiction, though the story became more sci-fi oriented over time.

Son Goten (孫悟天), is a fictional character in the manga and anime series Dragon Ball created by the famous mangaka Akira Toriyama. When the manga series was adapted to anime, it was split into two sub-series, and Goten made his début appearance near the end of the second sub-series. Goten appears in a third anime-only sub-series called Dragon Ball GT.

Goten is the second and last child of the main protagonist of the series, the Saiyan named Son Goku, and the Ox princess named Chi Chi. Goten was created in the series to replace Goku as the creator wanted to retire Goku from the series, however, Toriyama was forced to bring Goku back when the fans disapproved of the decision to replace the main character with an identical version of him (Son Goten).
