Goku (孫 悟空, Son Gokū), born Kakarot (カカロット, Kakarotto), is the main protagonist of the Dragon Ball metaseries created by Akira Toriyama. In its sequel film Resurrection 'F', Goku manages to achieve a blue-haired evolution of Super Saiyan God under Whis's tutelage, known as the Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan[nb 28] or "Super Saiyan Blue" for short, which Goku uses to battle the newly revived Frieza. [17] The Super Saiyan form also spared the trouble of coloring Goku's hair all the time for the standard black-and-white manga pages. After Raditz kidnapped Goku's son, Gohan, he forms a truce with Piccolo in order to defeat Raditz. [9] Toriyama also mentioned Torishima wanted Goku to form a relationship with Bulma, but this was never applied to the series. Shortly afterwards, Goku causes the Zenos to decide to hold a multi-universal martial arts tournament with the losing universes wiped from existence. Despite his auto evade being beneficial for stalling, he can still be hit, and therein lies his biggest weakness by far: fragility. He was ranked number one in IGN's 2009 list of Top 25 Anime Characters of All Time[118] and reappeared on the same list in 2014, however, on this occasion they ranked him third, with Cowboy Bebop's Spike Spiegel and Neon Genesis Evangelion's Shinji Ikari placed above him, saying that "He was, in many ways, a character that bucked the trends of his time and defined the direction of shonen manga/anime for decades. Goku faced off against this demented tub of goo in the Buu Saga and while he isn't defeated by him, he also can't do anything to permanently injure him. Wasn't there an interview at some point where Toriyama said he thought Vegeta would die fairly early compared to the rest of the cast because he seems like somebody who'd have problems with high blood pressure, while Roshi would outlive everyone? It’s easy to take for granted just how narratively terrifying … A skillful fighter, Tien still manages to die three times over the course of the series. Isn't Roshi like 370 or so at that point in the DBO Timeline? The Saiyans have Mr. Satan announce to the world that the Earth is going to explode within two weeks, but what they have come up with is to move everyone to Planet Plant for safety thanks to Vegeta's quick thinking. And It will be very hard to replace, let alone fill the void left by goku. Goku and Vegeta permanently die too "early?" Death can be undone with a wish to Shenron after gathering the seven Dragon Balls. He was featured in an issue of Wizard magazine in which he and Superman fought a hypothetical battle and won.

He encounters Universe 11's warrior Toppo and fights him to a draw, only for Toppo to reveal that his universe houses a vastly more powerful warrior named Jiren. For example, Jackie Chan has gone on record stating that Goku is his favorite Dragon Ball character. [84] Goku appears in Robot Chicken in a sketch entitled A Very Dragon Ball Z Christmas, where Goku and Gohan fight an evil Mrs. Claus with Santa's reindeer, in an attempt to save Christmas. So by the time they have their fight Vegeta is 69 with Goku being 67. With Vegeta refusing to cooperate, they are forced to take on Buu as individuals, but are clearly outclassed. Goku told Vegeta that he had to warn him about the Fusion being permanent. [11] Goku was given the ability to teleport to any planet in seconds, so that Toriyama could increase the pace of the story. … As a result, Toriyama was angered when the anime adaptations of Dragon Ball started portraying Goku as more heroic than his manga counterpart. Dubbed the “Heart Virus,” said virus stops Goku dead in his tracks, inflicting an intense amount of pain on the Saiyan’s body before taking its final toll. Renamed to "Power Pole" in Funimation's dub. [6][7], The character Goku is based on Sun Wukong[nb 6], the central character of the Chinese novel Journey to the West. He teaches Goku the Kaiō-ken[nb 20], which multiplies his energy and strength but with possible strain to the body. With ten times as much strength as usual, he is a destructive, chaotic force. [3] Born Kakarot,[nb 4][nb 5] Goku is introduced as an eccentric, monkey-tailed boy who practices martial arts and possesses superhuman strength. [101][102] CNN released an article explaining how Goku was Spanish professional tennis player Rafael Nadal's childhood inspiration, and called Nadal "the Dragon Ball of tennis" due to his unorthodox style "from another planet. Though the temporary transformation wears off, Goku manages to harness its godly powers. by Bacon Skittles » Mon Apr 13, 2015 9:58 pm, Post You guys actually take for granted that they died?
