Protector of the Earth and Universe
"I am the hope of the omniverse! I am the light bulb in the darkness! I am the bacon in the fridge for all the living things that cry out in hunger! I am the Alpha and the Amiga! I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am Son Gokū! and I am a Super-- (gets blasted in the face by Freeza) Saiyan."
Goku (孫 悟空, Son Gokū), born Kakarrot (カカロット, Kakarotto) is an idiot. He is the main protagonist of Team Four Star's DragonBall Z Abridged and is the title character. He is the second son of Bardock being Raditz's younger brother, the husband of Chi-Chi, and the father of their only son, Gohan.
Goku is actually one of the last members of the near-extinct Saiyan race, escaping the destruction of his home planet as a young infant. While originally arriving on the planet Earth with the mission of exterminating all living life on the planet, a fatal head injury on the head causes him to lose his memory (and suffer some brain damage), which resulted in him growing up to be a pure-hearted warrior, though not necessarily one of the smartest people out of the cookie jar (which is also one of his most least favorite food).
Goku is marked by his lack of intelligence, which has extended to his speaking during fights, confusion of when holidays are, not being able to tell when someone likes or dislikes him, and having complete confusion on sexual foreplay. This trait combined with his strength makes some of his opponents become confused and downright angered by him being on par with them in battle, as was the case in his fight against Vegeta when the latter became frustrated or when Freeza ranted about his compulsion to say things in an attempt to sound as though he was more intelligent than he actually was.
Despite this, he has shown on several occasions examples of implementing strategy or giving thought and thereby using his mind rather than merely charging his opponents as he usually does, such as when he outsmarted Goz and Mez to get out of Hell without completing the challenge they presented to him, plotted out how he would combat Freeza when finding himself to be outclassed, decided to use the Hyperbolic Time Chamber to strengthen himself in as short an amount of time as possible to combat Cell, and telling Gohan that Piccolo would also not allow him to leave on the basis that he was smarter than him and thereby was more wise than he was yet would have still made the same choice. These occasions severely departed from his usual antics. Goku has been shown to actually be rather intelligent on a level that borders on genius when he was lecturing Gohan on the strengths and weaknesses of the various Super Saiyan power-up methods discovered thus far, indicating in terms of percentage how the forms' decrease in speed and mobility made whatever strength enhancement virtually worthless. This was enough to profoundly surprise Gohan who had come to accept the idea of his father being a powerful moron. Goku's genius seems limited to survival skills and martial arts, due to having been independent and a fighter for decades, able to live off of almost anything in almost any environment.
Goku is a poor liar and horrible withholder of information, as was the case when he let it slip to Chi-Chi that he and the others intended to fight androids instead of going on a trip to Uruguay, even telling her not to tell herself.
His natural drive to battle as a Saiyan has proven to have repercussions in him opting to want to be challenged rather than assure a victory that could save the lives of those around him from further danger, as he chose not to use the Dragon Balls to locate Dr. Gero and by extension his android creations and deliberately allowed Android 13 to transform on the grounds of wanting a "good fight".
As a father, Goku has proven to be a mixed bag in his treatment of his son Gohan, who he has only greeted after being spoken to and left on his own multiple times as a result of either death, being incapacitated, or just wanting to be somewhere else as was the case in his decision to remain in space after Freeza's defeat. On the positive side, however, Goku has restored Gohan's health, saved his life, opted to speak to him when he has been angered, as he did after it appeared that Piccolo had been killed by Cell and expressed confidence in his son's abilities, such as asserting that he knew he would transform into a Super Saiyan eventually. He furthered that assessment with downright happiness after it occurred. With Gohan now a Super Saiyan, he became Goku's training partner as his son was now capable of fighting on par with him.
Goku has treated those he regards as friends with great concern on a consistent basis, giving Vegeta a burial after his death, questioning Future Trunks on how Krillin was doing after returning to Earth, and coming to pick up Piccolo and Tien after the pair were worn out from their encounter with Cell, risking his own life in the process.
Goku's training with Popo as a child has left him with severe PTSD to the point where Popo's mere presence is enough to scare Goku to the extent where his doctor had to poison him to get him to calm down and shut the hell up.
Krillin is Goku's best friend. Goku on Namek was able to recognize Krillin's cries for help, albeit after he started quaking. Goku was so bothered by his second passing that it triggered his transformation into a Super Saiyan, Goku after which invoking Krillin's name in his battle with Freeza. Upon returning to Earth and being met by Future Trunks, Goku asked how Krillin was doing and even acknowledged at a later point while training Gohan that Krillin's death would likely make his initial transformation into a Super Saiyan easier, showing he is aware of the bond the pair have with Krillin and how concerned they both are with his well being.
Goku's relationship with Piccolo has changed a great deal over time. Though Piccolo initially disliked Goku, this changed for the most part when he befriended him on MySpace, even leading Piccolo to agree to helping him retrieve a captive Gohan. Goku for a time held a grudge against Piccolo for his charging of an attack while he was being beaten up by Raditz, though this was rectified when their positions were reversed in combating Freeza. Since Goku returned to Earth and the two training together for three years, Piccolo has acknowledged that he now would consider coming to Goku's aid.
Goku has unintentionally become the rival of Vegeta. When the two first fought, Vegeta was bothered by Goku's ability to keep up with him in strength despite his lack of intelligence. Goku himself was convinced that he could not allow Vegeta to be killed if h was apologetic for having been indirectly involved in killing his allies. When the two met again on Namek and Goku single handedly bested most of the Ginyu Force, Vegeta began to view Goku as having the potential to become a Super Saiyan, even lamenting when he genuinely believed he was one. As Vegeta passed, he hoped that Goku would defeat Freeza, even appearing to him to give instructions to Goku on how to defeat him. Since the two have been on Earth together, Vegeta has shown dislike for Goku even when he tries to give him assistance such as when Goku offered him transportation to his confrontation with Cell and argued against his strength, believing that he is stronger than him, even arguing against Goku's status as the strongest person on Earth once losing miserably to Cell's Perfect Form.
Goku's lack of intelligence frustrated Freeza to attacking him upon their first meeting, though Goku was soon to display his skill when evading the attacks. Though having promised Vegeta that he would defeat Freeza and even being advised by the then-deceased Saiyan to use the Kaio-ken, Goku soon found himself outclassed though managed to use what little intelligence he had to power a Spirit Bomb. After the move failed to best him, Freeza unintentionally caused Goku's strength to succeed his own when he killed Krillin, prompting Goku's transformation into a Super Saiyan, all the while Goku still being capable of falling for Freeza's tricks but becoming bored and sparing him, having won their fight.
Goku was found in a Saiyan pod by Grandpa Gohan, who initially planned to name him "Clark" before settling on "Goku". While the infant Goku expressed happiness with the name, Grandpa Gohan accidentally dropped him, causing Goku to hit his head and suffer an injury. According to Krillin, Goku was found in the woods by his friends. When Goku was a child, he climbed to the top of Korin's Tower and thus arrived on Kami's Lookout. He was happy in his achievement as it meant he could begin training again before he encountered Mr. Popo. Mr. Popo threw him into the Hyperbolic Time Chamber sometime after their first meeting and Goku nearly died. Goku married Chi-Chi and during her pregnancy with their child Gohan thought she was hiding cinnabuns in her shirt. He developed a fear of her during the early part of their relationship.
Early Age 762 Edit
Making a deal Edit
Goku ventured to Kame House. Accompanying him was his son Gohan, who he introduced to Bulma, Master Roshi and Krillin as his child and caused a surprise to the group. Bulma and Master Roshi indirectly asked Goku since he had a son how his experience was in having sex, though he was not able to catch on to Bulma beating around the bush nor Master Roshi's sounds indicative of the act. With Krillin questioning when Gohan was going to start training, Goku explained that Chi-Chi was against it as she wanted him to become, in his own words, "lame". Bulma noted the Dragon Ball on Gohan's hat and stated that it may make him a target for villains, though Goku denied this as he had beaten Piccolo and expressed confidence in himself before sensing a power level that he noted as being bigger than Krillin's "losing streak."
Raditz then arrived and revealed Goku was not human but instead part of a race of near-extinct aliens called Saiyans and that he was his brother, though most of it confused Goku who could only responded repeatedly, "What?" After Krillin walked up to Raditz and was knocked into Kame House after asking how important he would be since he was Goku's brother, the latter ordered Raditz to stop hitting Krillin, reasoning that he was breaking Kame House. He then questioned what Raditz was there for, mentioning the Dragon Balls and then elaborating on what they were. With Raditz insisting that he was there for Goku, the latter asked what they were going to do, mentioning the possibility of them catching a ball game or seeing a film.
Raditz revealed his intent to have Goku join him in eradicating the human race and selling the planet, which Goku tried to deny accepting as he liked people on the planet, before being kneed in the stomach followed by Raditz taking his son. Goku criticized Krillin for not acting and when he mentioned being slapped into the house and asked what Goku's excuse was, Goku reasoned that he had been kneed. Piccolo then arrived and Goku tried explaining to him what had happened, only for Piccolo to reveal he was observing the entire conflict, leading Goku to ask if he was interested in teaming up with him, promising to add him on MySpace for his help.
Fight against Raditz Edit
Goku and Piccolo journeyed to fight Raditz. While flying on Nimbus, Goku started conversation with Piccolo and asked if he was a Yoshi, the latter sarcastically confirming his theory and prompting Goku to ask if he could ride him. When the pair arrived, they removed their weighted clothing as they began their fight with Raditz, Goku reacting in shock that Piccolo was also wearing weighted clothing. Goku caught Raditz's tail during the fight and let go twice after Raditz's apologizes convinced him to. He also made a habit of screaming out his battle strategies and was briefly aided in the fight by Gohan, who threw himself into Raditz. The battle was finally resolved when Goku grabbed Raditz from behind after fighting him by himself while Piccolo charged his Special Beam Cannon, unintentionally sacrificing himself so that his nefarious sibling could pass away with him, as Piccolo failed to issue a warning despite Goku telling him to so that he would not take the blast along with him. Bulma, Krillin and Master Roshi then arrived and Krillin was at Goku's side as he died. Though Krillin had brought along a Senzu Bean, Goku mentioned that he had a hole in his esophagus and then passed on.
Following his death, Goku was brought to the check-in station by Kami, where he met King Yenma. King Yenma allowed Goku access to meet with King Kai by granting him permission to journey on Snake Way, which Goku said sounded fun and was alright with going on. Before he left, Goku asked King Yenma about his brother, describing him and learning that King Yenma had tried to stop him but was unable to as Raditz ran away. Goku arrived at Snake Way and in looking at the road, thought aloud that it was going to take him a while. Goku asked the demon who transported him there if anyone had ever ran the whole thing and found out Mr. Popo had.
Journey on Snake Way Edit
Goku started off his running strong, as he was motivated to reach King Kai since he knew the Saiyan threat would be the biggest challenge that humanity had faced up to that point and reminded himself of this initially, though he later fell asleep and was on the back of a truck as it journeyed on Snake Way for him until it bumped and knocked him off, waking him up as he fell downward into Hell. Goku was instantly met by Goz and Mez, learning the pair's names after asking who they were and learned of their intent to have him exercise, which did not impress him as he told them of his mission and asked how he could get out of there. The pair claimed the only way out was by beating them in a test of strength and speed. Goku asked them hypothetically if he had beat them where the exit would be and when pointed in the right direction, made a run for it. He asked them about Raditz and discovered the latter had made a "horrible mess of the Blood Fountain", which Goku thought looked fine with the blood inside of it until it was realized that it used to have water in it.
Goku informed the pair that he was leaving and thanked them for the fruit. Goku then encountered Princess Snake, who he instantly was able to tell was not King Kai and was confused by when the latter asked if her beauty tipped him off. Goku then stated that he could eat anything when she asked him if he was hungry, though he was again confused by her when she said she could as well. Princess Snake revealed that she had killed all of the animals he began eating and Goku was impressed with her for having done so as he began chowing down on the variety, though he asked what she meant when she stated that she wanted to take him down as well. Goku then enjoyed himself in the hot tub and in stating that it was nice, prompted Princess Snake who was hiding in a cardboard box to remark that the hot tub was not as nice as his "ass", which he barely was able to hear.
As Goku was about to leave, he was stopped by Princess Snake, who claimed that he could not leave until he had passed a test of endurance and told him that she wanted him inside of her, confusing him as he asked for clarification. Princess Snake transformed into her snake form after this and went after Goku with persistence, attempting to eat him. He was able to dodge her for the most part, though was hit by her flamethrower that came out of her mouth. During the chase, he requested that she stop chasing him and quit grunting since he found it creepy. Goku was eventually able to elude her once she got caught in herself, being grateful for this.
Training with King Kai Edit
Goku arrived on King Kai's planet and met him and Bubbles, though was quick to react to the intense gravity of the small planet. Goku explained to King Kai once he asked why he was there that he had come to train with him since his planet was under attack and spoke of his intent to withstand any test in order to save his world, before King Kai cut him off by announcing he would train him, surprising Goku as he thought he would have to take some test, though King Kai reasoned that the only company he had was Bubbles, Gregory and Bojack. Goku was not surprised afterward since he could not "imagine anything more boring" than that.
Goku was brought back to life thanks to the others using the Dragon Balls on Earth, mentioning it to King Kai as his halo disappeared. After the latter ordered him off the planet, Goku thanked him for his help and expressed his belief that he would be ready for what he knew was a hard battle before departing.
Arrival at the battlefield Edit
Goku was eating food that he was given by Princess Snake, which she gave him as an attempt at apologizing for trying to eat him earlier, when she reminded him that he was on his way back to Earth to save his friends and family. Goku then continued his journey back there and arrived on the planet. He asked Mr. Popo for transportation to get him there quicker, but was turned down due to the latter having to bake toast and instead opted to use the Flying Nimbus. Goku arrived at the battlefield as Nappa was able to stomp on his son, being surprised by the bodies of Piccolo, Tien and Yamcha, but Yamcha in particular and asked where Chiaotzu was, learning from Krillin that he had blown himself up.
He gave Krillin and Gohan Senzu Beans to restore their health after the two had sustained injuries from the fight with the Saiyans and he briefly powered up. Goku had his power level read as 1,006 by Vegeta who had his scouter on upside-down and encouraged Nappa to fight him, thinking that he would be able to "kick his ass". Nappa charged Goku and was defeated with ease by the latter, only afterward Vegeta revealing that he had the scouter on upside-down and that his power level was actually 9,001, though he was still not concerned since it was not a threat for him and because the two would wish for immortality with the Dragon Balls after his defeat. Goku then revealed that since they had killed Piccolo then the Dragon Balls would not work, prompting Vegeta to kill Nappa, who had killed Piccolo along with the others.
Fight against Vegeta Edit
After Vegeta killed Nappa, Goku told Gohan that he wanted him and Krillin to get away from the battlefield as he intended to fight Vegeta by himself. He then noticed that Krillin had left in a hurry and told Gohan to tell Chi-Chi "to put dinner on" because he was hungry. Goku asked Vegeta if they could take their fight somewhere else since the location did not seem right. After arriving at a wasteland, Goku said the pair did not have to fight and offered Vegeta a chance to leave so that they could stop "meaningless bloodshed." When Vegeta declined, Goku still offered it as long as Vegeta was a "little sorry." When the latter swore he would kill Goku and destroy the planet, Goku attacked him with his Kaio-ken, catching him off-guard.
Goku asked him what he meant by an "elite" and was still confused after Vegeta explained its definition. When their fight continued and Vegeta bragged about him fighting a "losing battle" while Goku removed his shirt, he again activated his Kaio-ken, but this time times three, and slammed him into a cave. Vegeta sarcastically remarked that he was having a good time with "gumdrops and ice cream" after Goku asked how he was and when the latter asked to come inside, Vegeta remarked that he was surrounded by idiots, confusing Goku who thought he was surrounded by "gum drops and ice cream."
Vegeta then freed himself from the cave's inside by causing it to burst and expressed his outrage with how the battle was going, to which Goku joked that he was having an "ice cream headache", causing Vegeta to decide that everyone dies and launch into the sky. Goku told Vegeta that his statement to say goodbye to his planet was not "very nice" and then fired a Kamehameha at Vegeta's Galic Gun. They were evenly matched until Goku increased the power of his beam by using the Kaio-ken times four, sending Vegeta away.
Vegeta returned, mistaking Goku for destroying the moon when in reality it had been Piccolo, and transformed into a Great Ape. Goku was under the impression that this would only increase his strength and decrease his speed, being surprised when he was nearly hit by Vegeta right after he entered the state. Goku moved away and chose to start thinking like a monkey, hearing Bubbles and being under the impression that it was working before King Kai told him that using the Spirit Bomb was the only way he could defeat Vegeta. Goku began charging it, not realizing he would have to be well-hidden since it would take time to charge it fully, and was struck down by Vegeta.
Goku was able to resist Vegeta in the form by shooting him in the eye though was ultimately retrained and held against his will, making a squeaking noise as Vegeta squeezed him. In the midst of the conversing between the warriors and Vegeta, Yajirobe cut off Vegeta's tail.
Gohan arrived to confront him and protect his father, fighting him while Goku called over Krillin to throw the Spirit Bomb, reasoning to his friend that he had picked him as he was out of options. Krillin threw it and missed, leading Goku to request Gohan to give it a try and tell his son that he believed in him, though warned him that the attack might harm him as well despite earlier stating that it would not since he was a good guy. After the attack hit Vegeta and the latter was propelled into the sky, the group briefly celebrated as they thought he had died until Vegeta came back unconscious and opened his eyes, causing Yajirobe, Gohan and Krillin to shriek in panic and the confused and incapacitated Goku to ask what was going on as he was under the impression that they had won.
After Vegeta came back and started attacking the group again, he fired a beam that he thought would kill them all, discovering that they had survived and being led to begin attacking everyone individually. After Gohan transformed into an Oozaru, Goku lied on Vegeta by claiming that he had killed Icarus. With Gohan's tail being removed by Vegeta and the latter trying to leave Earth in his space pod prior to being confronted by Krillin who sought to kill him for what he had done, Goku stopped his friend by telling him to let Vegeta go if he was sorry, which the latter claimed to be and Krillin allowed for him to leave at Goku's request.
Late Age 762 Edit

Return and warning Edit
Goku returned to Earth nearly two years after the battle on Namek, though was late in that he had come after Freeza and his father King Cold landed. Fortunately for him and the planet, Future Trunks defeated the pair ahead of his arrival and pointed the Z-Fighters in the direction of where he would crash land. After his pod landed and he saw most of his friends outside, Goku warned them that they did not have anytime and that Freeza was on the planet, becoming confused by everyone's cheering, the result of seeing him again and the threat being averted.
After his panic calmed and he noticed all of his friends were still alive, Goku expressed surprise, swearing that he thought Freeza would "Yamcha" at least one or two of them before greeting Yamcha himself and asking who was responsible for defeating Freeza. He learned from Bulma that Trunks had been behind his death, though he was unacquainted with the young man and did not want to say this, which lead him to stand and think of what his name was while pretending to know him before Trunks revealed the two had never met, relieving Goku who agreed to speak with him in private after Trunks made the request. Goku asked the others to give him one minute and though Gohan stressed it had been almost two years, he stressed the importance of talking "to this purple stranger", referring to Trunks and cut his son off as the two gained some distance from the others.
Though Trunks got his name wrong by calling him "Sun Wukong", Goku stated that he had correctly called him by his name "Son Gokū" and learned the young man's name was Trunks, revealing to him after he asked how Freeza survived that he was responsible for letting him go, Goku concluding that he probably made a "bad call" in doing this. After Trunks stated that if he had not showed up then everyone would have been killed, Goku theorized that Shenron would not "be happy about that one" and confirmed to Trunks that he was Super Saiyan during his fight against Freeza. With the latter asking Goku to show him, he contemplated it with doubt since he barely knew Trunks but agreed to and transformed for him.
Goku said the transformation still sort of tickled as Trunks revealed his ability to transform, though Goku was most shocked by his hair turning "yellow" and was further in amazement by his own being that color once Trunks pointed that out to him. Goku was impressed by his transforming, being reminded of Krillin's death propelling him to transform for the first time. He then asked Trunks if anything had happened to Krillin while he was gone, afterward blocking the attacks of Trunks' sword with ease when the latter tried testing him before continuing to ask about Krillin's condition. Trunks was impressed with him and wanted to divulge his secrets. Goku admitted that he was horrible at keeping secrets, but promised to keep his and swore on the life of Krillin before Trunks reacted and then Bulma's, with Trunks questioning that he was promising on his mother's life, revealing their relation to Goku as he screamed out that she was his mother.
Goku then correctly guessed that Vegeta was his father and with Trunks' quietness, planned to go over to the two and congratulate them on their son prior to Trunks revealing that he was from the future, with Goku asking if he was "for realzies?" Trunks confirmed and stated that the robots would be created by a scientist from the defunct Red Ribbon Army, Goku calling them androids despite Trunks telling him the technical term was cyborgs. Goku did not understand how serious the androids were, even with Trunks saying they dwarfed Freeza with their power. Trunks explained that the androids killed all of the Z-Fighters apart from Bulma, Gohan, the already-deceased Yamcha and himself, leading Goku to question him as to what had happened to Yamcha and in learning that he committed suicide after learning that she was pregnant with Vegeta's child, stated that his death was "dark" before asking about what happened to him. Goku discovered he had also died before the battle thanks to having too much cholesterol and was angered to the point of telling the young man to take that back before Trunks stated that medicine had been created to treat his condition, after which Goku asked if it was grape-flavored which he revealed he did not like and then was happy when Trunks claimed it was bacon-flavored.
Goku bid Trunks farewell as he left, revealing he thought the young man was female and then worked to get his story straight to the others. After being asked by Krillin what their talk was all about, he told him and the others, "You guys, ANDROIDS!" Goku then struggled to remember details of the description given to him by Trunks but was helped by Piccolo, who had heard everything. Goku requested that he not tell everyone and he promised not to, leading Goku to feel content. As Vegeta started talking, Goku noted his pink shirt and complimented it as being a good color on him.
Goku revealed to everyone that he could teleport by using his Instant Transmission technique and teleporting to Master Roshi at Kame House, where he took the latter's glasses, and returned to the site of his crash landing, wearing them. Goku confirmed his speed when Yamcha noted that Master Roshi was on the other side of the world and he expressed that he just had to imagine where he wanted to go and he would be there as he explained his abilities, revealing to the others that he learned it out in space. When asked by Krillin how he survived, Goku would have just replied, "Muffin button" and explained how he survived with the help of the button and the people on the planet Yardrat.
Yamcha questioned him on why he did not teleport to Earth since he knew Freeza was coming and Goku rationalized it as him wanting to give them a shot, making no promises to Piccolo that he would do it again. With Vegeta's claims that he was a Super Saiyan, Goku believed him instantly and asked him to show him, though the latter left after this and denying Bulma's idea of wanting to fight the androids as opposed to locating the person making them by using the Dragon Balls to summon Shenron and have him reveal the person's location. Goku agreed with him and wanted to fight the androids since he had not had a good fight since Freeza.
Gohan asked him if the first thing they were going to do after being away from each other for nearly two years was train and he told his son that he was excited as well. Goku stopped Yamcha as he began to leave with Bulma to tell him that he was his friend. Goku asked Piccolo if he wanted to drive cars and later went for a drive. Goku approached Chi-Chi over having Gohan help him in fighting the androids and she denied him, though he corrected her in stating that the first thing he asked about was dinner and was disappointed to learn she was rejecting both, trying to appeal to her to be a pal before accidentally knocking her into a tree with his massive strength.
Over the next three years, Goku trained with Piccolo and Gohan, sometimes Goku and Piccolo attacking Gohan at the same time. Once he fell down, Goku told Piccolo that his son needed to learn how to dodge and explained to Piccolo that he had managed to convince Chi-Chi to let him train Gohan by claiming to her that they were going on a trip to the "Ozars" before begging him not to tell her that they were there. Once Piccolo revealed his compliance, the two came to a mutual understanding.
Arrival of the Androids and illness Edit
Goku accidentally let it slip to Chi-Chi on the day of the androids' arrival that they were going to fight them, not realizing that he was speaking to her as she questioned what he meant before flying off with Gohan and Piccolo. The pair came across Krillin on their way to the island, the latter stating to Gohan that he had barely grown since the last time he saw him with Goku mentioning that he felt this same way anytime he saw Krillin. The four were called down by Yamcha and met Trunks, the infant son of Bulma who turned away from Goku once he said his name was a girl's name. They all correctly guessed that the father was Vegeta, Yajirobe arriving afterward and Goku questioning if he had come all that way to assist them in fighting the androids before discovering from Yajirobe that he had only come to bring the Senzu Beans.
Goku also heard the Yamcha song he was playing, "Cat Loves Food" and started singing it as Yajirobe was shot down by the androids, remarking that the group had never wished him back before and Piccolo then noted that the androids were there before the group watched them go into the city. Though everyone did not like Piccolo's suggestion to go into the city, Goku agreed with him and threw the Senzu Beans to Bulma since they might have weighed them down before into the city. Goku looked around after flying in the city and thought about where he would be if he was an android.
Goku started off his fight with Android 19 by delivering punches to the android, who did not seem capable of doing anything apart from being hit by him. Goku then charged a Kamehameha wave at the android and planned to destroy him with it, though he absorbed the attack as he downloaded his newest software, which allowed for him to absorb it without problem. Goku noticed the wave's absorption, stating it "didn't seem to work" and started to fire another wave at Android 19 with what he claimed was "double strength" when Yamcha warned that the androids could absorb energy. After Yamcha faced criticism for not telling the group earlier, Krillin joked that he needed the negative attention like a "hole in the chest", which received no aloud understanding from anyone from Goku, who screamed while fighting Android 19 that he understood him. Android 19 started to pummel Goku, who told his friends that he believed he was dying and asked Krillin for a Senzu Bean. After receiving it and digesting it, he fell the ground, claiming that it made his chest pains feel worse.
As he reported to Piccolo, his chest was hurting and it was hard to breath in addition to him feeling a numbness in his arm, which he questioned whether or not was normal. Goku confirmed to Gohan that he had taken the medicine before elaborating that he had started to, further explaining that he stopped due to its grape flavor before being kicked by Android 19 and reverting back to his base form. Goku called for Piccolo to tag in and then Gohan when the former was shot and seemingly neutralized prior to Android 19 sitting on his chest. As Android 19 began absorbing his energy and Goku tried his hardest to resist by grabbing the android's arm with both of his, Vegeta arrived and knocked the android off of him, saving Goku from having his energy further depleted. Goku greeted the arriving Vegeta and explained that he was dying when asked what he was doing before asking for assistance, to which Vegeta kicked him over to Piccolo who caught him with his hand. Goku thanked Vegeta and was taken back to his home by Yamcha.
After being taken home, Goku screamed while Chi-Chi tended to him. Yamcha watched over Goku as he continued screaming and briefly took a breath before continuing to shout. Krillin decided that it would be best for Goku to be transported to Kame House ahead of the androids arriving at his home. Goku could be heard when Krillin and Future Trunks arrived at his home and shortly before they moved him into a ship. At the same time, Future Trunks insisted that a recently discovered time capsule was not the same one that he had used to come back to the past, trying to show it to the group amount the ship and having it land on Goku who as noted by Yamcha, returned to shouting. After arriving at Kame House, Goku was placed in a bed upstairs and Chi-Chi brought to attention the fact that he had began smiling. Within Goku's dreams, he was both a pirate and ninja, the different versions of him communicating with each other.
Back in the game Edit
He woke up prior to the Androids arriving there, being seen outside Kame House by Chi-Chi, who immediately hugged him. Goku, in an attempt to prove he was back to normal, tossed her into the sky unintentionally while lifting her (which later culminated in her burning in space). After this, he spoke with Chi-Chi and Master Roshi briefly, though still managing to anger Chi-Chi when he spoke of his intentions to continue his training and bring Gohan alongside with him if she was worried about him. Chi-Chi had him to promise they would have another child, to which he did not confirm nor deny the possibility before using Instant Transmission to relocate to the plane carrying most of the Z Fighters.
Appearing for a few seconds after Krillin expressed his despair while questioning why the group did not have Goku, he informed them that he was taking Gohan with him and bid them farewell as he teleported away again. He reappeared with Gohan to meet with Trunks and Vegeta, the latter having sat around while his father stood in silence. Goku spoke with Vegeta and though the latter became infuriated by Goku mentioning hearing about his loss to Android 18, he changed tones when Goku brought up the Hyperbolic Time Chamber at Kami's Lookout. Goku, Gohan, Trunks and Vegeta all journeyed to the Lookout and were shown the chamber by Mr. Popo. After Vegeta made the choice for him and Trunks to go ahead of Goku upon hearing that the latter nearly died when in the chamber as a child, Goku wished Trunks to "have fun".
While he and Gohan waited for a day to pass to begin their training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, Piccolo began fighting Android 17. Though Gohan wanted to assist him, Goku stressed they would have to wait for Vegeta and Trunks to finish so they could start and become stronger, continuously saying "Hyperbolic Time Chamber" incorrectly. This caused Mr. Popo to knock him off of the Lookout.
Goku and Gohan felt Piccolo's energy go out after Cell put him in a comatose state, Goku calling it "not good." Goku stopped his son from trying to arrive on the battlefield by holding him back, asserting that he was not strong enough to defeat Cell. Goku convinced Gohan that his intervention would not contribute to Cell's defeat by insisting that Piccolo, who he admitted was smarter than him, would not let Gohan go were he in his position. After his son was convinced, Goku mentioned that the Hyperbolic Time Chamber's door would open the moment Gohan left.
Goku then sensed Tien as he began stalling Cell with the use of his Shin Kikōhō. Gohan did as well and asked him if it was Tien, which Goku confirmed and agreed with Mr. Popo that he was probably going to die. With Tien losing his energy from using the attack repeatedly, Gohan called for Goku to assist him, but Goku made the claim that there was no way for him to get to the battlefield in time before remembering his Instant Transmission and teleporting there. Goku appeared before Cell and in front of Tien as he insisted to Cell that he was just going to be there to pick up his friend, which he theorized would only take a moment before sensing Piccolo and moving over to save him as well.
Goku told Cell that he would be ready to face him the following day and, in a cold tone, that Cell would die. Goku then returned to the lookout with the two, where they were given Senzu Beans and brought back to full health. After Piccolo stressed that he only had stalled him and that they had no one to face Cell and Vegeta and Trunks were said to be coming out by Mr. Popo which lead Gohan to retort "OR DO WE?!", Goku stated that they did not since the pair had not gone in yet. He greeted Trunks as he exited the chamber and complimented his hair, laughing at his remark that he had grown it himself. Goku then greeted Vegeta who claimed to have finally become stronger than him, which he called "Neat!"
Hyperbolic Time Chamber Edit
With Bulma arriving on Kami's Lookout, he and Gohan greeted her. Bulma questioned Vegeta on why his hair had not grown since he had been in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber and he explained that a full-blooded Saiyan's hair does not grow from the day they are born except for beards and mustaches, creating a dilemma for Goku who could not stop imagining Vegeta with a mustache and pictured him with one, laughing about it to himself before Bulma revealed she had made armor for the group to use in their fights against the androids. Goku and Gohan changed into the armor, Goku mocking Vegeta after claiming that he was him and causing him to announce his intent to leave. Goku asked if he wanted him to teleport him there, but Vegeta declined on the grounds that he hated Goku and left. Future Trunks planned to follow behind him, being given Senzu Beans by Goku who figured that he would need them even though the two were powerful enough to defeat Semi-Perfect Cell. Goku spent the following thirty minutes eating, Mr. Popo approaching him and Gohan to ask if they were ready.
With Gohan reminding him that they had food inside and thereby he had wasted their time, Goku questioned what 30 minutes was and his responses frustrated Mr. Popo to the point where he chose to let the two go inside on their own merit. Once they entered and Gohan marveled, Goku thanked Gohan for deciding to tag along with him, though his son claimed that he had kidnapped him. Goku disagreed, stating that he could not kidnap his own child, afterward Gohan expressing his intent to look up on whether that was true. Goku said that he could not since within the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, it was just them and the void, him yelling out the word and having it echo. With Gohan proclaiming that the pair would not be saying that word again, Goku did once more and afterward announced his intent to make his son a Super Saiyan, noting that it would be difficult to do so given that Krillin was not there to die but said the two would fight continuously until they got there. Gohan stated that he needed an adult, Goku claiming to be one only for his son to suggest otherwise.
Goku watched Gohan's unsuccessful attempt at becoming a Super Saiyan, stressing that he would have to do more than power up to become one and asked him if he remembered when he had first transformed into a Super Saiyan. Though Gohan confirmed that he did, Goku recalled his time on Namek and the deaths of Krillin, Vegeta and Piccolo by the hands of Freeza, events that Gohan tried to explain he was there for but could not due to Goku being fixated on telling the story. When he came to remembering that Freeza tried to kill Gohan as well, Goku remembered his son had been there, but questioned why he had not transformed as well. While taking a bath together, Gohan told Goku that he had enjoyed their time training together, sentiments repeated by Goku who expressed the importance of the pair training even while resting. Goku and Gohan splashed each other with their bathing water, an activity they both enjoyed until Goku started charging a Kamehameha wave, one that Gohan tried to convince him not to fire before he did so anyway.
Three months into their training, Gohan had still not become a Super Saiyan. Goku watched Gohan while he was sleeping during this time and the latter woke to him, Goku explaining that he wanted to be around when his son transformed, affirming that he had confidence in him despite several months having passed without the transformation occurring. Goku warned Gohan however that if he did not become a Super Saiyan, then the world was doomed, though he recanted this story when seeing Gohan's worried expression and claimed that he thought he could handle it before having his son to return to sleeping.
Later, Goku introduced a new concept into Gohan's training, elaborating on what he planned to teach his son by mentioning it as an area that he was told by Piccolo that Gohan had been struggling with. Before Goku could reveal it as him trying to help his son dodge, Gohan realized what he was trying to do and Goku ignored his son's pleas by launching into the sky and instructing his son to react by dodging the blast he was sending toward him, which he deemed too powerful for his son to take head on. Goku fired the beam toward his son and in doing so, Gohan took the blast directly and transformed into a Super Saiyan before causing the beam to go else where, Goku being happy to see his son transform and approaching him while he struggled to maintain the form. Though he tried to give him advice, Gohan did not respond to him as he kept struggling to maintain for the form. Goku gave his son a haircut afterward and sometime afterward, ate before coming up to his son. Goku had Gohan to roast meat with a blast, though in doing so it burst in front of Goku who scolded his son for placing too much power into the attack, all the while a fire spreading along his face that Gohan tried to warn him against. Goku insisted that he not change the subject until beginning to feel that he was being burned.
Goku dodged some of the blasts that Gohan threw his way later on, expressing his happiness with his son being a Super Saiyan as he needed a good training partner, elaborating that he did not know Future Trunks that well and that Vegeta always seemed angry, sometimes convincing him that he did not like him and leading Goku to question who would dislike him since he was himself. After the training ended, a clock fell, breaking and reminding Goku of the sixth rule of Mr. Popo's training. Goku tested the Third Grade Super Saiyan form in front of Gohan and explained that the form was strong physically in its attacks but that it saw a massive decrease in both speed and mobility, leading him to believe that one would never hit their opponent in that form. Goku apologized to Gohan for using the form as he thought about fighting and broke his explanation down for his son.
Goku was featured in Krillin's proposed film "Skygina". He was out getting a fish when Gohan was kidnapped, coming back to his home to learn from the severely-injured Chi-Chi of their son's abduction, though it took some time for her to get the point across as Goku kept getting distracted from acknowledging the similarly wounded Ox-King and to rambling on about breakfast, concluding that Gohan would need to come back in time to eat a particular meal since it was the most important one of the day. Goku traveled to Kame House where he discovered with the use of Bulma's Dragon Ball radar that someone was collecting them, answering that he did not know when Bulma questioned why Gohan was kidnapped and concluding that whoever it was desired a "fanny-whooping." Goku then explained that Chi-Chi did not like for them to swear and questioned what Bulma was talking about when she said that butt was not a swear word. Goku followed the radar's directions and arrived at the lair of Garlic Jr., confronting the latter while introducing himself and stating that Garlic Jr.'s name sounded yummy before questioning if they stole his son and telling the group that the joke was on them and that he could fly prior to Piccolo attacking them. Kami greeted Goku, who explained his reason for being there and while Kami went off with Garlic Jr, Goku fought the minions and was nearly hit by them until Krillin stopped the beam from striking him. Goku stressed that he did not need assistance before greeting him and questioning if there was a second beam, at which point Piccolo revealed himself. Goku noted to Ginger, who expressed confusion with Piccolo being alive, that Kami would have disappeared alongside the Dragon Balls were Piccolo to have actually been killed and asked where the food was being kept when Piccolo noted it. Goku tasked Krillin with recovering Gohan while he went to fight against Ginger and Nicky, who he accused of being unfair from them using swords on him from their bodies since...
"I don't care what kind of science your cooking up! I'm here for two things; to rescue my friends, and correct a mistake! I am Son Goku! And I, am the Word's Strongest!"
Goku traveled to Dr. Wheelo's lab, dubbing himself the world's strongest fighter as he appeared outside on Nimbus and being let into the lair by Kochin, Goku removing himself from Nimbus and stating his hope that it was warmer on the inside when in reality it had been on the outside. Goku initially was impressed by the ball pit until they showed their spikes and launched at him, Goku dodging the hurls and subsequently destroying them with several energy blasts until being intercepted by the Bouncy Butcher who he noted was moist and concluded he would have to go inside of similarly to Chi-Chi. Goku used the Kaioken to press through his body and destroy part of the ceiling, sending him further into the lair where he stated his intent to harm whoever attacked him next and promptly punched Freezer in the face, apologizing afterward before being electrocuted by the Electrocutioner. As Freezer was ordered to freeze him and Goku found parts of his bodies being frozen, he noted that the name sounded familiar and thought Piccolo was on his side briefly before discovering that he had been turned evil by Kochin's machinery. Gohan and Krillin promptly arrived to assist Goku though were defeated immediately afterward, Goku expressing frustration and freeing himself from the ice with the Kaioken before doing away with both the Electrocutioner and Freezer.
After defeating the pair, Goku, Gohan and Krillin made their way down the lair, finding Bulma and Goku running up to her in an attempt to free her from her constrains before being electrocuted and afterward commenting that he was going to have nerve damages after that day. He questioned Bulma for why she did not warn him about the electric field and then said it was sexy that she was chained up. Goku expressed his intent to save his friends afterward and was attacked by Piccolo, who for the past week had been under the control of Kochin. When Piccolo struck Gohan, Goku told him not to touch his son that way, unless the pair were training and in which case gave him permission. The battle between the two ended when Gohan destroyed the controls, Dr. Wheelo afterward expressing his frustration with not having a body until he found himself mobile in an robotic armor which Goku said was his body. Dr. Wheelo then struck Piccolo down for a comment on the body and Goku joined both Master Roshi and Krillin in firing a Kamehameha at Wheelo, the attack not being enough to destroy him. Goku admitted afterward that he had held back and then told everyone to stop attacking so that he could destroy Wheelo himself, including Gohan after he was knocked away by Wheelo while trying to attack. Goku used a Kamehameha while using the Kaioken and expressed his view that Wheelo was not dead afterward, one that proved to be correct as Wheelo returned to their sights and prepared a Spirit Bomb, though Gohan found out that Wheelo was not evil as Goku finished preparing the attack and told his son that he was ready to fire it before discovering this, prompting him to try setting the attack down before causing collateral damage. A year later, Wheelo was given a normal body.
To be added.
"I AM CHAMPION CHRISTMAS!!"
Goku questioned Angila and Medamatcha on whether they were going to steal Christmas by taking his planet and attacked Medamatcha before the latter could finish asking the question, who proclaimed after the attack that he was going to kill it and the smaller forms of him would rape the holiday. Goku proclaimed he would not and defeated the pair, Krillin asking what he intended to do to the other henchmen and Goku sparing them, only for the group to be killed by Lord Slug as he exited his headquarters. After Krillin was effortlessly defeated by Lord Slug, Goku yelled out his name in concern and attacked him, only to be virtually bested before being contacted by King Kai. Goku confided that he was being beaten but expressed concern about Christmas being ruined if he did not best the villain and being encouraged by King Kai, who called him the "Champion of Christmas." Goku promptly transformed and was able to knock Lord Slug around for a short time before the latter revealed that it was not Christmas and it was only snowing due to him freezing the planet. Goku expressed disappointment and reverted back to his normal form, being satisfied with at least removing the foe's arm before he removed it, Goku then making a comment about his jaw and subsequently realizing that he was a Namekian despite his thinning at first that he was a Yoshi. After King Kai related to Goku Lord Slug's using of the Dragon Balls to make himself younger, Goku remembered King Piccolo doing this and asked him if the pair were related though he was careful to question if he was being racist.
Cooler and his men came to Earth, the men confronting and detaining Krillin, Gohan and Oolong while Goku was getting fish for the group. He returned to the scene and ordered that his friends be let go off, only for Cooler to make his presence known and Goku to turn to him in shock, mistakingly believing him to be Freeza. With Salza stating Cooler's name, Goku questioned if he meant that he was cooler than Freeza and told Cooler that he must be ice cold. As the others arrived to assist Goku, the latter confirmed to Cooler that the flying Gohan was his son and told him not to carry out his intentions after Cooler swore that he would kill him. Cooler fired eye beams at Gohan, which Goku quickly caught up to and was blasted by in his successful attempt to save Gohan.
Goku was left injured from the attack and asked his son upon waking up if he had Icarus with him since he was hungry and asked where the two were, being informed that they were hidden in a cave. Krillin moved the rocks out of the way and tended to Goku while Gohan went to retrieve Senzu Beans, Goku asking what the smell was. Goku started singing while Krillin watched over him and complained about the Senzu Beans following Gohan's return, actually praising the damage that was done to them by Salza. Goku took the next Senzu Bean from Gohan and approached Salza outside, telling him that he really was not fond of him beating his friends or family before Cooler revealed himself to be holding Piccolo's unconscious body. After Piccolo's body was thrown down and exploded to an extent, Goku asked Cooler if his case of explosives was contagious as he did not want to catch that, saying this even after Salza had punched him.
With Cooler then revealing his intent to do the same to the entire planet, Goku charged up and attacked him. Goku was informed by Cooler of his family's history and told him that he was sorry about his father, agreeing with Cooler's impression of Freeza and witnessing his transformation. Goku teleported away from Cooler as he began to attack, questioning why he allowed people to transform. After a series of beatings from Cooler, Goku tried retaliating with a Kamehameha wave in his Kaio-ken form. The attack did not work and Goku fell from a few feet, meeting a bird that he dubbed "Toriyama" that died right after, Goku complaining that it was taken before its time and transforming into a Super Saiyan while instructing a revived Toriyama to go. Cooler found himself unable to do damage to Goku, the latter making comments that he made toward Freeza that only left Cooler confused without the proper context.
Cooler threw a ball of energy to destroy the Earth which Goku confirmed as being bigger than the one Freeza had thrown, then using a Kamehameha to send Cooler away. Goku then complimented the sun for assisting in killing his enemies and concluded that it was worth the skin cancer, then being found by the others and making a move toward Icarus for not only being the only person to not pitch in but also because he wanted to eat Icarus. Salza then approached the group and after he was killed by Piccolo, Goku told Gohan to give him his dragon.

- Goku is the only character shown to tell Freeza a line he never heard before during a heroic speech: "I'mma deck you in the schnozz!". He is also shown to be the only character who can troll Freeza, who was trolling nearly everyone else on Namek.
- Ironically, this trolling may be due to Goku's stupidity as opposed to any real effort.
- In Trunks' timeline, Goku's love of bacon will be his downfall, as it causes him to develop a high cholesterol that will result in a fatal heart disease.
- He is terrified of Mr. Popo due to past encounters.
- Goku is surprisingly a bit smarter in Super Saiyan form.
- His favourite place to eat is most likely "Denny's", as he was thinking about having a Grand Slam during his fight with Jeice and Burter.
- He may think all Namekians are Yoshis, as he mistook Lord Slug and Piccolo for one.
- He thinks he and Vegeta are friends...best friends. Although in episode 53 Goku starts to believe that Vegeta doesn't like him.
- One of Goku's most serious moments in this series was when he turned Super Saiyan, he also took a serious tone in episode 48, telling Cell he will die, leaving Cell confused .
- This means that Gohan might have gotten a little bit of his personality from his dad as well, not just from Chi-Chi.
- When squeezed, his ribs crush his lungs, causing the air that he expels to sound similar to a squeaky toy. According to Goku it's a medical condition.
- Goku suffers brain damage from when Grandpa Gohan dropped him on the head as a baby. This could possibly be the cause of his incredible stupidity.
- He has a habit of taking too much energy for the Spirit Bomb and killing an animal, prompting for the animal's offspring to arrive and question its dead "daddy".
- He escaped Namek's destruction with muffins protecting him on the way to Yardrat.
- Goku made no promises not to have the other Z-fighters fight the bad guy.
- He tends to mention Chi-Chi to his foes as if he thinks they know who he's talking about. He first mentions her to Raditz; "Nothing you could do could ever compare to what Chi-Chi would do to me if she found out he died." He later mentions her to Freeza; "And you're nothing but an overgrown that thing Chi-Chi keeps in her drawer!"
- Despite being an idiot, Goku has displayed some occasional brilliance in the series such as:
- Points out to Krillin that a Senzu Bean won't heal a hole in his esophagus.
- Hiding underwater and shooting ki blasts up at Freeza, knowing he can't sense energy.
- After turning Super Saiyan, he ordered Gohan to take Piccolo and get back to the ship, knowing that if Piccolo dies the whole point of going to Namek would be pointless.
- Points out to Garlic Jr. that had he killed Piccolo when trying to get the Dragonballs, they would become inactive since Kami would also die. He even mentions this to Nappa and Vegeta.
- He was the one to point out the Hyperbolic Time Chamber
- After Piccolo is defeated by Cell, Goku prevents Gohan from trying to go and help him, stating that Gohan isn't strong enough. Gohan then argues that Piccolo would let him go. Goku answers that Piccolo wouldn't and supports this by mentioning that Piccolo is smarter and wiser than he is, leaving Gohan shocked and confused; "That.... that's actually a really good point."
- When demonstrating the Third Grade Super Saiyan form to Gohan, Goku explains about how the bulky muscles will cause an increase in power, but a decrease in speed and mobility.
- Did we mention how much of a hopeless idiot he is? And how unfortunately it's not his fault?
- Goku can apparently speak french.
- Goku had a pet rock named Trevor.
