  • Goku (孫 悟空, Son Gokū) is Son Goku (Japanese: 孫 悟空 Hepburn: Son Gokū) is a male Saiyan and main protagonist of the Dragon Ball meta-series created by Akira Toriyama. Initially believed to have been born on Earth, Goku later learns his true heritage and his birth name Kakarot (カカロット Kakarotto). As Goku grows up, he becomes the Earth's mightiest warrior and protects his adopted home planet from those who seek to harm it.

    Goku is the youngest son of Bardock and Gine, and the younger brother of Raditz.

    After marrying Ox King's daughter Chi-Chi, he later becomes a father and has two sons, Gohan and Goten.


    Goku is the spitting image of his father, Bardock, possessing an identical black hairstyle unique to himself and his father, however, he has a softer face and lighter pale skin complexion from his mother, Gine.


    Goku is known for his cheerful, energetic personality and his love for competition and eating. He takes most situation in stride, rarely letting things get him worked; the first time he lost his tail, while initially freaking out, he instantly got over it. He will eat anything.

    He has remarkable intuition to see the good in others in spite of their actions, though his capacity for forgiving has occasionally been criticized as excessive even to a fault and has lead to harm and death to those he cares about in extreme occasions; though Goku mostly fights to win, he often spares his enemies even if they in turn attack him.

    Goku is pure of heart, possessing no negative feelings or thoughts. He is also shown to be very innocent since childhood, because of growing up in Mount Paozu and not having met anyone other than his grandpa until he meets Bulma. During his childhood, he had difficulty telling the difference between a male and a female without physically touching them, which often gets him into trouble, until he eventually outgrew this once old enough to understand the difference.

    In the anime, Goku has been shown to have a fear for needles.

    Bardock: The Father of Goku (Television Special)Edit

    Goku Baby

    Kakarot (Goku) being to sent to Earth from planet vegeta

    Kakarot was born on Planet Vegeta during a time of great turmoil in Age 737. At birth he was ranked as a Low Class Warrior. Like all Saiyans from Universe 7, Goku was born with the saiyan tail.

    Due to Saiyan customs, Kakarot was task with with conquering the Earth and send into space in a Space pod. Kakarot's parents disappears along with their home planet's destruction at the hands of Frieza shortly after Goku's departure to Earth. After crash-landing on Earth, the baby was found in the woods by an old man named Gohan and became his adopted grandson. He is given the Earthling name, "Son Goku".

    Pre-Dragon BallEdit


    Grandpa Gohan taking care of a injured Goku

    At first, he was an extremely violent and ill-tempered boy, not obeying Gohan at all, but one day he fell down a ravine and suffered head trauma that sent him into a coma and nearly killed him. After he recovers, Goku's personality has completely changed, going from being a violent to a good-tempered little boy.

    Gohan trains him in Martial Arts, teaching him techniques such as the Jan Ken Technique, and giving him the Power Pole. He is seemly normal except for his ignorance of the world (which is demonstrated numerous times, often in humorous ways). But Gohan has made him aware about such things as the cities outside Mt. Paozu.


    Grandpa Gohan and Goku

    Goku developed the impression that his birth parents abandoned him in the mountains as a baby leaving him for Gohan to discover. One night, Gohan witnesses Goku's full moon transformation and told him to never go out when there's a full moon. Another night Goku kills his grandfather by accident after transforming into a Great Ape, having no  memory of the incident.

    Goku using Kaio-ken

    Goku learns this technique after dying against Raditz while training under King Kai. While using it and any of its multipliers proportionally increase all his capacities, the strain of using it for too long can be dangerous. As such, he ceased using it after his gaining Super Saiyan. While he can combine the two powers, Goku never tried this while alive as doing so could lead to near-certain death.

The appearance of a Super Saiyan manifests in the user's body. Goku gains a slight increase in muscle and height and hiss skin turns lighter. His eyes become noticeably sterner and more defined with green eyes.

Goku achieves this powerful transformation in a rage after Frieza kills Krillin. 

    In Dragon Ball Super, after his fight with the God of Destruction Beerus, Goku realizes that fully mastering his Super Saiyan form would cause it to eventually raise his level more than his higher Super Saiyan forms, and sap less of his strength. 

    During the Universal Survival Saga, Goku - who had gone well beyond his limits - was able to flash between base and Super Saiyan to defeat Jiren alongside Frieza


    Super Saiyan Goku in Dragon Ball GT

    After being wished into a child during Dragon Ball GT, Goku can still transform into a Super Saiyan. However, he is unable to maintain the form for as long as he can in his adult body, though still long enough to endure a grueling battle However, after his tail is restored, he became able to maintain the form for as long as he can normally can in a similar to his adult body.

    Super Saiyan 2nd Grade

    Ascended Super Saiyan

    Goku transforming into a Super Saiyan 2nd Grade

    An advancement in the power of the original Super Saiyan state. While training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, Goku achieved this form of Super Saiyan. However, although this new power up would not take as much of a heavy hit on his speed as the successor would, he decides that staying transformed like this demands far too much Ki to be spent, and so decides that the regular Super Saiyan is best suited for combat, and makes a plan for him and Gohan to master it before leaving the chamber. The characteristics of an Super Saiyan 2nd Grade, causes the muscles to swell up a bit, and the golden aura increases.

    Super Saiyan 3rd Grade

    Dai san 222

    Goku transforming into a Super Saiyan 3rd Grade

    An even stronger advancement in the power of the original Super Saiyan state. After ascending into a Super Saiyan 2nd Grade, Goku also reached this form of a Super Saiyan while training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. the drawbacks of this form result in speed decrease and increased muscle size restricts movement.

    Super Saiyan - Full Power

    Yz n

    Super Saiyan - Full Power Son Goku

    After realizing the weaknesses inherent to the higher Super Saiyan grades, Goku concluded that mastery over the basic Super Saiyan form would be more advantageous and went on to improve his endurance in that form. To which, he trained to maintain Super Saiyan form for extended periods of time, gradually overcoming the heightened aggression that accompanies this form and reducing the energy drain to nearly nothing, thus achieving a max output for a Super Saiyan without drawbacks.

    This allows him to fight at his full potential and not lose energy like an untrained Super Saiyan. After dropping out of Super Saiyan God, Goku manages to retain some of the Super Saiyan god powers while transformed into a Super Saiyan. After he mastered the energy of a god in this state making him incredibly powerful he eventually attained Super Saiyan Blue.

    Super Kaio-ken: 


    Super Kaio Ken Son Goku

    A combination of the Kaio-ken and Super Saiyan. Goku uses this technique while fighting in the Ano-yoichi Budōkai against Pikkon. By using the power of Kaio-ken while in his Super Saiyan form, Goku doubles his Super Saiyan capacities. Due to the strain of using the Kaio-Ken on top of Super Saiyan, even with his perfect control of the form, it was too dangerous for Goku to use it while alive as even the little buildup of emotions while transformed could prove devastating to him.

    Super Saiyan 2


    Super Saiyan 2 Goku in Dragon Ball Z

    The second core Super Saiyan transformation introduced in Dragon Ball Z. This transformation multiples Goku's power 100 fold. Goku achieved this transformation at some time after Cell's defeat while in the Other World. The characteristics of a Super Saiyan 2 result in Goku gaining some changes; his hair grows longer and spikier, his forehead has only three bangs over it, making his hair more defined than his other previous Super Saiyan forms, along with disappearing hair strands surrounding the forehead which are exclusive to this form. His muscles also become more defined and his aura also generates electricity surrounding his body, while the aura grows markedly larger and more vibrant.


    Super Saiyan 2 Goku in Dragon Ball Super

    It was first briefly seen when Goku powers up to overflow Yakon with energy, as Vegeta notes. Goku first makes full usage of this form against Majin Vegeta. In Dragon Ball Super, Goku displays mastery of the form similar to regular Super Saiyan. He reserves this form for opponents he takes semi-seriously, usually as a means to better gauge his opponent's might.

    Goku (GT) using Super Saiyan 2

    After being turned into a child during Dragon Ball GT, Goku uses this form as a kid only to guard against an attack by General Rilldo. late he briefly appears in as a Super Saiyan 2 while powering up to transform into Super Saiyan 3 while fighting Baby Vegeta in his Strognest Form 2.

    Super Saiyan 3


    Super Saiyan 3 Goku

    Goku achieved this level in Other World as he could put unlimited energy into his transformation. This form multiples Goku power 400 times his base. Goku achieved this level after years of training in Other World, where he could put unlimited energy into his transformation. Goku is first used this transformation against Innocent Buu during the Majin Buu Saga, where he had slight advantage over the Majin. However, the transformation is extremely draining in terms of energy due to the living world having less energy to siphon. These heavy disadvantages make it impractical to use this form out of the afterlife and even more while alive.

    In Dragon Ball Super, these energy-sapping issues appear to be circumvented by Goku, through the utilization of Super Saiyan 3 in an extremely sporadic fashion for quick power boosts to overwhelm enemies (E.g. during his sparring bout with Future Trunks). Using the form in this way does not appear to have the same exhaustive effect on the user that it does have when used for prolonged periods of time.

    The energy drain issues are exacerbated even further when Goku is turned back into a child in Dragon Ball GT. at one poin, he could only hold the transformation for a couple of seconds and struggles to utilize the power against Baby Vegeta. This limit was somewhat lifted after Goku's Saiayn tail was restored with the help of Old Kai. This allowed him to sustain the form for a longer duration, though he was still no match for Baby Vegeta in his Strongest Form 2.

    Super Saiyan God

    Super Saiyan God Goku

    Super Saiyan God is a Saiyan transformation beyond the core Super Saiyan Transformations. Goku achieves this form with the help of the five other Saiyans, and uses it against Beerus. Goku's appearance in this form is slimmer with bright red hair shaped similar to that of his base form, red irises, slightly thinner, and a darker skin tone. His aura generates like an orange flame. 

    Despite the incredible power, Goku soon after reverts to base form due to the form's time limit. Despite dropping out of Super Saiyan God, Goku retained some of the power, letting him continue fighting Beerus. Through further training Goku learned to properly access and control this residual power, ultimately restoring its full properties access this form at any time

    God-like Saiyan

    Goku (Saiyan Beyond God)

    Saiyan beyond Son Goku

    After experiencing the power of Super Saiyan God, Goku gained the ability to use the raw might of this god-like power without changing form. When in this state, while his physical appearance remains unchanged, his ki can be manifested as a pure white aura. If Goku tries to become a Super Saiyan he will instead become Super Saiyan Blue.

    Super Saiyan Blue Goku

    the form is also known as Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan. After training with Whis, Goku learned to synchronize Super Saiyan with Super Saiyan God, causing him to become a Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan, more commonly known as Super Saiyan Blue. This form is identical to Super Saiyan, only with cyanish-blue hair and a blue aura shaded with some gold. The form's power surpasses Super Saiyan God and is a level beyond that offers increased levels of ki and emotional control. Goku learns to enhance the transformation's power through different means, including using the Kiaio-ken.

    Kaio-ken: Super Saiyan Blue


    Kaio-ken Super Saiyan Blue Goku

    Thanks to the Super Saiyan Blue form's great ki and emotional control, Goku can utilize Kaio-ken alongside it with far less risk. While treated as a power up in the anime, it is its own form in video games. In this state, Goku gains a double aura, leaving Goku to appear as a normal Super Saiyan Blue with his blue over while a larger red aura surrounds it.

    When pushing the multiplier up to x10, Goku's blue hair appears several shades lighter than normal almost white, and his skin appears to be illuminated by the Kaio-ken's aura to a light shade of red or pink.

    By the Future Trunks Saga, Goku had mastered this technique up to a x20, as his form showed no instability, indicating that his control over it is on par with his base Kaio-ken and thereby no major strain. During the Univerasl Survival Saga, during the second fight against Jiren, Goku was able to empowering this state to push himself beyond his previous usage and thus breaking his limit.

    Zamasu's Body


    Goku in Zamasu's Body in Dragon Ball Super

    In an erased timeline, Zamasu, giving into his hatred of mortals, came to desire Goku's power, which was considered to rival the Gods of Destruction. Using the Super Dragon Balls, Zamasu swapped bodies with Goku, obtaining all the inherit powers and abilities of the Saiyan. It remains unclear if Goku obtained any of Zamasu's powers through his Shinjin body as Zamasu seemingly retained his original powers and abilities once becoming Black on top of acquiring Goku's. Regardless, Goku in Zamasu's body proved powerless against Black as he effortlessly killed Goku in only base form.

    Ultra Instinct -Sign- Goku

    A state that was attained during the Tournament of Power. Using the Universe 7's Spirit Bomb as a catalyst, Goku broke through the shell of his normal limits to unlock a deeper portion of his potential. This state's appearance seems a blend between Goku's base and Super Saiyan form. His hair stands up somewhat, becoming more wild in shape and defined with no loose strands, but otherwise essentially remains the same

    This state's appearance seems a blend between Goku's base and Super Saiyan form. His hair stands up somewhat, becoming more wild in shape and defined with no loose strands, but otherwise essentially remains the same. His eyes become more defined and sterner in shape, while also gaining silver irises. His aura becomes a complex, silvered aura with silver spark appearance. In this state, Goku's strength, speed, and reflexes are greatly augmented. The highlight of this form is access to Ultra Instinct enabling him to process information far quicker and efficiently to learn, react, and adapt to all he experiences. It also greatly enhances Goku's natural growth rate. Goku is constantly evolving in this state, and his attacks keep getting noticeably quicker, sharper and heavier with every skirmish.

    Ultra Instinct

    Ultra Instinct Goku

    Once finally understanding Whis' words behind self-movement, Goku learned to let go of all self-doubt and live for the moment. Once fully synchronizing his impulses with his natural drive, Goku became able to subconsciously unlock the full potential of his offensive and defensive might. This culminates with Goku's silver glow consuming him. In this state, his hair turns silver and skin tone becomes more ethereal in nature. The power in this form is vastly greater than his initial state of Ultra Instinct that it completely shreds away his shirt and left all the grand deities of the universes in awe at his power. In this state, Goku is shown such fine control of his ki able to calmly repel and contain any energy assault thrown at him. He can unleash barrages of his energy in focused shockwaves and cancel out all but the strongest of attacks. This form can also channel his rage to staggering new levels.

    In the Ultra Instinct state, Goku's might ranks among the most powerful entities in all the multiverse. However, this form cannot be maintain for more than a few minutes. After passing the time limit, Goku's body will give out, leaking out his energy in ravaging manner that will severely injure him and regress to his base form.

    Despite learning to use this state at its fullest, Goku cannot access it at will, but rather only as an instinctual reaction to the most dire of situations.

    Golden Great Ape

    A far stronger transformation form of a Great Ape seen in Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball GT. This state is attained by Saiyans who have a tail, along with the ability to become a Super Saiyan. It is the result of a Saiyan in Great Ape form becoming a Super Saiyan. Aside from their fur being golden-colored and standing on end, the Saiyan's appearance is identical to that of a regular Great Ape. Additionally, a golden, crackling aura is sometimes visible around the user.

    Super Saiyan 4


    Super Saiyan 4 Goku in Dragon Ball GT

    A Super Saiyan transformation seperate from the core Super Saiyan forms. This form gives the user the priml power strrength and speed of a Great Ape, but with a calm, clever mind. But for others, it can make them very cold and aggressive

    The overwhelming power of this transformation is apparently great enough to overcome the Black Star Dragon Balls' power. The spell is only suppressed during the transformation, however. In addition to him being turned back into an adult temporarily, Goku's overall appearance changes yet again. His tail is easily visible and turns red, the hair becomes wild and long (not as long as a Super Saiyan 3), his eyes becomed lined with a red tint, his pupils turn golden yellow and red fur covers almost all of his body from head to toe resulting in a Saiyan/Ape Hybird. Also his clothes drastically changes as well.

    The only way a Saiyan can attain Super Saiyan 4 is if they become a Golden Great Ape and regain conscious control over the form. After this form is attained, it cannot usually be accessed at will..
    Super Saiyan 4 - Full Power


    Super Saiyan 4- Full Power Goku

    Goku first used this form in battle against Syn Shenron, taking energy from the Super Saiyans Gohan, Goten, and Trunks to restore his full power, but then continues to take in even more power from them to push his body past his limit - at the risk of it killing him. With the power of this form he is able to overwhelm Syn Shenron, the latter being no match for him in power.
