Attack Potency: Large Star level (Much stronger than both Son Goten and Trunks), Solar System level as a Super Saiyan (Was stated and implied several different times to have power surpassing that of Innocent Buu, which was ultimately confirmed by the narrator. He is even stronger than Super Saiyan 3 Goku) | Solar System level (His base form alone was greatly implied to have surpassed his previous Super Saiyan form. Upon transforming into a Super Saiyan, he powered up even further and managed to do lots of damage to Buu with the Super Kamikaze Ghost Attack) | Solar System level (Fought on par with Super Buu, and probably even surpassed him.

Stamina: Very high. As a Saiyan, Gotenks can fight for long periods of time without tiring, keeping up an extended battle against Super Buu, but due to his nature as a Metamoran Fusion he can only fight for at most 30 minutes at a time, making his stamina somewhat irrelevant. However, his stamina suffers even more as a Super Saiyan 3.
Range: Standard melee range. Stellar with ki blasts and attacks. | Standard melee range. Interplanetary with ki blasts and attacks. | Standard melee range. Interplanetary with ki blasts and attacks.
Standard Equipment: Nothing notable.
Intelligence: While Gotenks has the combined knowledge of Goten and Trunks and is thus a competent martial artist, his immaturity makes for an arrogant and naive fighter who often toys around with his opponents for no reason other than dramatic effect.
Weaknesses: Gotenks is very cocky and likes to toy with his opponents for dramatic effect. Super Ghosts can be easily destroyed from a distance with Ki blasts. The fusion only lasts for 30 minutes and using Super Saiyan 3 reduces this time to 5 minutes. Goten and Trunks must wait a full hour before fusing again.
Key: Before training in the Room of Spirit and Time | After training in the Room of Spirit and Time | Super Saiyan 3
Notable Attacks / Techniques:
Ki: The fighting power and life force of a martial artist, a tangible energy derived from the user's vigor, courage, and mind. It can be used in a number of ways, such as to surpass the limits of one's body to greatly increase in strength, and it can be fired as blasts of energy or used to create defensive barriers. Along with his Saiyan blood and nature as a Memtoran fusion, Ki acts as the source of Gotenks' incredible power and abilities. Despite his young age, Gotenks is immensely powerful thanks to his fusee's power and nature as a Saiyan hybrid, and he has knowledge of all their techniques along with a number that he created himself.
- Galactic Donut: Gotenks creates a yellow ring of Ki, which he transports over his opponent, lowering it around them and constricting it to limit their movements and crush them. As a Super Saiyan 3, Gotenks is able to create several of these rings, trapping his opponent in a sphere made up of them, which he can then throw around at high speeds, ultimately spiking it into the ground with explosive force.
- Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack: Gotenks' signature technique. He expels a Kamikaze Ghost from his mouth, which will attack his opponent, detonating whenever it touches anything, even other Super Ghosts. He can summon multiple ghosts at once, using them to attack his opponents from all sides.
Saiyan Physiology: The physiology of a Saiyan, an aggressive warrior race of conquerors. Saiyans have the natural ability to control ki and to fly. While his lifespan is comparable to that of a human, Gotenks will remain at his peak strength for much longer. One of the most powerful abilities of a Saiyan is their ability to grow stronger and stronger through combat, allowing Gotenks to constantly push his own limits during a fight and rise to higher and higher peaks in power. This ability grants a substantial boost in power when Gotenks is badly injured, allowing him to reach a whole new level of power once he recovers.
- Super Saiyan: The famous, legendary transformation of a Saiyan that allows them to greatly surpass their limits and reach the fabled state that is Super Saiyan. Thanks to his fusions already possessing the form when they fused, Gotenks can easily become a Super Saiyan to draw upon the form's vast power, but his immaturity remains a striking feature. These transformations These transformations can be reached through extensive training, but are more often unlocked in moments of intense emotional turmoil and need, and due to the natural aggressiveness of Saiyans, they cause the user to become more aggressive and malicious. While immensely powerful, Super Saiyan transformations drain a lot of energy, and the first is particularly inefficient, allowing him to maintain the form effectively indefinitely without issue. While the original Super Saiyan state is eclipsed in power by Super Saiyan 2 and Super Saiyan 3, the higher forms become increasingly inefficient, culminating in the high cost of Super Saiyan 3, which causes such a strain on the body that it greatly lessens Gotenks' fusion time.
