His growth height is growing over tallest than of his wife and children.

    Shawn's hair going to spiky bangs are similar to Goku's, James's and Shaun's in his Super Saiyan, Full-Power Super Saiyan Form, Super Saiyan 2 and Potential Unleashed with his torn clothes during the battlefields to his fight with Frieza, Cell and Super Buu till the end before his death and losing his immortality by extracting his immortality of his body and transferred to his youngest daughter as a smaller premature baby.

    Personality Edit

    Shawn was a very friendly, kindhearted, bravery, strong-willed, pure-hearted, compassionate, good-mannered, patient, intelligent and knowledgeable main character of the Dragon Ball Z series and movies before his death. Shawn having the similar personalities with Goku; they both are the strongest fighters, loves to challenge in the battlefields to fight future villains and both are striking resemblance to their fathers.

    At young age, he's very respectful, kindhearted, peaceful, cheerful, energetic, sensitive and native child to his mentor, Samurai Jack because he's kind like a father to him, taught him everything he knows before he's get a older to learn the truth about his future with a family, people and his youngest daughter will survive to defeat Super Buu. Sometimes, he's getting too angry and aggressive towards his enemies like Aku,

    Shawn was like a big brother to mostly everyone who he met in Samurai Jack World, Ninja World, Spencer World and Dragon World, and due to the pressure of being a Emperor's child and his relationship with his mentor Samurai Jack was a good father and son friendship, he had developed a kindhearted, caring, compassionate, friendly and energetic personality that often got him into trouble with his parents. Aruto also had a verbal tic: when excited or frustrated, he would end his sentences with "Yukō!" (行こう!; English TV "Let's go!") something that his youngest daughter, grandsons, granddaughters and descendants have his inherited traits from him.

    Shawn deeply cared for his family, friends and student, and he trusted them with his life. The trust that he has with his students is shown when it was revealed that Shawn entrusted his daughter Kaylah, his oldest son to take care of his younger sister for him, their mother and other sisters passed away during their absences. Naturally, Shawn was devastated when Denise Uzumkai died after their daughter's childbirth and died along with his wife, Denise to protect Kaylah from the evil Mega Buu with their bodies to shield from Super Buu tried to kill her, however he realized that going into depression wouldn't help the situation at all, so he took it upon himself to raise his daughter, who became motherless mere moments after her birth and he's want his masters, Kitibo and Supreme Kai to raise his youngest daughter take her in their under training to make her a better strongest fighter than him, more powerful than her mother, and more smartest than her brother and sisters.

    Already showing protectiveness over his youngest daughter, Shawn cut off all connections to Denise's clan from Bojack and his galaxy soldiers, fully knowing that there are no more relatives left and that the hiding Aku, Frieza, Cell, Babidi, Dabura, Pui Pui, Yakon, Mega Buu and Super Buu may come after Kaylah if they found out she was still alive and survive from the cold blood massacre, which showed that he indeed already committed himself into looking after the safety of his youngest child: the last memory Denise, his eldest son Zesmond Spencer and other sisters: Brianna, Ashley, Brittany and Tiffany left him with.

    Relationship with Denise Uzumkai Edit

    Shawn Spencer and Denise Uzumkai

    Shawn and Denise have their first meeting as they were children at the academy with Minato and Kushina in class together in Ninja World before they're moving into the Dragon World and Spencer World to take throne as the Fourth Emperor like his father did throughout in the anime series and movies.

    At the academy, Shawn was stopped the mean boys and girls; who've been picked on her, teased her, bullied her a lot and give a mean nicknames like "Crybaby" and "Daddy's Little Girl" as she's very little girl with average height because of very her pale skin complexion and blue eyes.

    They both are the last survivors left of their kinds and left from their different worlds were targeted and destroyed in cold-blood murder spee on their people by their enemies's clans: Shawn: Wizard Babidi, Pui Pui, Yakon, Dabura and Super Buu and whereas for Denise: Bojack and his galaxy warriors, they both are growing up as orphans after the loss of their parents, people and clanmates, as the outcasts the outcasts to hatred of the people in villages and cities with no friends and parent's love.

    The different between them is: Shawn is a Saiyan was born with Immortality and Saiyan heritage tail before it's removed by Supreme Kai since he was baby when his parents were killed by Wizard Babidi, Dabura, Pui Pui and Super Buu in Spencer World empire during the Spencer Clan Massacre, and Denise was the Shenron and Porunga Jinchuriki of Earth and Namekian Dragon Balls Birthmarks and one survivor left with her caretaker and become Tsunade Senju's student.

    Shawn is truly caring for her since he's very friendly and compassionate with kind and gentle personality. Because their love has become much stronger enough
