is the daughter of Mr. Satan and Miguel. She is Gohan's
wife and the mother of Pan. Videl was born in Age 756. Videl grew up learning
martial arts, hoping to be as great as her father, when in fact, unknown to
herself, she was already better and stronger than him. On May 7 of Age 767,
when she was 11, Videl won in the Junior Division of the 24th World Martial
Arts Tournament. Her mother left Mr. Satan and their daughter Videl at
one point, leaving only the two of them in their family. But they have got
loads of servants. Her father is very protective of her, especially in respect
to boys, only allowing her to have a boyfriend if he was stronger than him,
which Videl thought was impossible. Her mother has passed away since she was
still a baby and raised by her father in her whole life.
In her spare time, Videl helps the police and fights crime in Satan City. She
becomes suspicious of Gohan after meeting him on his first day at Orange Star
High School, and she even follows him for a brief time to learn more about
him. Videl eventually discovers Gohanís secret identity as the Great Saiyaman: in the manga, she very easily tricks Gohan into revealing his
identity after stopping some thugs (she asks the Great Saiyaman how he left
class, and he answers her, revealing that he is actually Gohan).
In the anime,
she discovers that Gohan is the Great Saiyaman after she and Gohan are
involved in an attempt to return Chobi, a baby pteranodon, to its rightful
parents. In both cases, she deduces that Gohan is the son of the 23rd World
Martial Arts Tournament winner, Goku,
based on them carrying the same family name, and gets Gohan to participate in
the 25th World Martial Arts Tournament and teach her how to fly using a
blackmail-type of threat. In a matter of days, Videl learns how to fly, and
starts to develop a liking for Gohan. She even cuts her hair one day after he
had suggested it (though she initially thought he just liked girls with short
hair, he explained that long hair will only get in the way during a fight).
There is an awkward moment when Chi-Chi asks Gohan whether he is going to
marry Videl, which embarrasses him. As she becomes a great flyer, Gohan begins
to think that Videl is really something special. Despite the relentless
teasing from friends (such as Krillin),
Videl and Gohan develop a sweet kind of relationship.

Videl is an easily likeable character in DragonBall Z... especially due to the fact that there's a severe shortage of female fighters in the series. She's one of the few, and he holds her own. There's something about her simple attire that's nice to look at and she's got some great moments
in the story.
Arc System Works did a great job with her fighting game debut in Dragon Ball FighterZ. She's got awesome animations and again, she's one of the few ass-kicking females in DBZ. Gotta love the fact that she has two hairstyles in the game too! :)
