Grandpa Gohan


Grandpa Gohan is the elderly gentleman who found and raised the Saiyan Son Goku when he landed on Earth. A former disciple of Master Roshi, he taught Goku everything he knew. He died when Goku accidentally turned into an Oozaru and crushed him underneath his foot. He was brought back for a short time to spar against Goku in Fortuneteller Baba's tournament. Goku's son, Son Gohan, was named in honor of him.
