Mystery of Gh+Vis heights-ID1 by genaminna Mystery of Gh+Vis heights-ID1 by genaminna
Okay, man. So, either Videl is super-duper short or Gohan is uber-duber tall :faint:

The only parts I edited were the additions to the art! O_o I did NOT draw Gohan, Videl or Goten!! This is from the actual cover page from the DB manga, Chapter 234: Videl Learns to Fly.

Videl and Gohan's heights are so mysterious! O.o ~Avalonbluemoon and I had a long discussion about this at her deviation in the club --> [link] (you can read it in the comments if you want XD)
I always wanted to do something like this, but never got around to it till I got a question from ~kittenthecat about Videl's height from page 220. "Is Videl really that short?" Yes! Yes, she is!! XDD (In fact, on 220, I think I made her taller than she's supposed to be!) O.o

In the manga, she's always been this short. In the anime, (and especially in GT >.< ) they like to change things around. WTF?! How do you get a sudden 6-inch growth spurt in your 30's (when you're a woman, on top of that)?!!

The only time it changes in the manga is when it would hinder Toriyama's composition (like, half of her head would be off of the panel or something). But when things like that-- in addition to weird angles-- aren't present/ aren't a problem, she is definitely this size, in relation to Gohan. There were other images proving this also (in the manga), but I just didn't scan them all. ^^; Besides, this one was the most obvious (that Toriyama wanted it this way) and the most exact time when either are not being foreshortened.

Videl is not up to Gohan's shoulder for cryin' out loud! At the most, it's his lower-to-middle-chest area. :shakefist:

Why do I care about this so much?! Do you have to ask?!! XDD (If you have to ask, just look at my avatar! XD)

And, even IF I changed the 'scale' on how large 1 ft. would be, Videl would still be like 4-foot-something, and Gohan 6-ft-something...! o_O;; Either way, (to quote Ava) "Videl is really really REALLY short. or Gohan is just really REALLY tall. XD tha' world shall never know..."

Yes, unfortunately... ^^; Which is why I'm asking Mr. Toriyama, hahaha. XD (As if he'll ever read this. XDD)

Were you hoping for a real I.D.? MY bad. ^^; But, I love Gh/Vi, so they're "a part" of me, too! ;D :giggle: :heart: ^_~

"How do you get a sudden 6-inch growth spurt in your 30's (when you're a woman, on top of that)?!!!"

Goku: Simple....there's these 7 magic balls and then there's another short person with an ego problem whose name rhymes with Fajita...Mmmm....fajitas.... -drools-

-insert snapping fingers-

Goku: Oh! And that's how I saved Christmas twice. :D

Actually the height for them are on wikia.

Videl: 5'1 only an inch taller than Krillin

Gohan: 5'9 same height as his father

Goten: 3'2 yeah he does have an excuse.

They do appear that way in the show but I don't think anyone unless they are a child are shorter then Krillin. :p

I believe Dragonball.wikia had all the heights of the characters :P

Gohan: 5'9"
Videl: 5'4"
Trunks: they only say his child height which is 4'2"
Goten: as a child 3'9"
Goku: 5'9" but later appears taller
Vegeta: 5'5"
Piccolo: 7'5"
Bulma: 5'4"
Chichi: 5'4"

That's all I'll type out :P Pretty interesting... oh well, you can't always get heights right >.<

Vegeta 5.5, that reminds me of Jet Lee
Goku and Gohan were same size during Kai saga (base form). SSJ3 will be around 6'0"and SSJ4 will be 6'2"or a little bit more, just guessing :)

My understanding is that Goku is 5'6", officially, and Gohan is supposed to be the same height as his father. So...that almost makes it worse for poor Videl if you keep things in proportion according to the image lol

When I saw this the first time I thought "Hey she is the same height I am"... but now that I check twice (my height) now I know that she is even smaller than me and that's a lot to say :|

(My confusion is that I don't use english metric system but SI... and when passing from meters to feet, I made a mistake.. [and awful one, that if my teachers know would kill me slowly and painful] feet isn't 10 based... and 4.92 feet isn't 4'9"... in the end I am 4'11"... two inches taller than Videl)

Excellent tip!

I always realized that Gohan was just as tall as his grandfather Ox. Because he's like 9'' than his father.

If we look Japanese females, they're just so short!!! I think Videl reveals some of that :P

About Goten... how tall is he when he's 17?? I wonder to know.

Anyway, very good image :)

I dunno XDD He (Goten) looks to be about the same as Trunks tho (still shorter than Gohan and Goku tho).
Oh well ^^;

lol, I'm not sure if Gohan's as tall as the Ox King, but this picture sure makes it seems like it XD

I LOVE this~ Even in the anime, Videl is like, really short, especially in that episode where they train... I had a picture of her yelling at Gohan and she was like, up to his chest. XD If she's that short, then I'M taller than her! (I'm like 4'11 >.> ) :+fav:
