Possible Opponents


Son Goku, or his Saiyan name Kakarot, was born the son of a low-class warrior Bardock on Planet Vegeta. He narrowly escaped the extinction of his entire race when he was sent to Earth as an infant with the mission to wipe out the inhabitants and conquer the planet. But he raised by his adoptive grandfather Son Gohan and fell from the deep ravine, erasing all memory of his mission and instead becomes the moral opposite of a Saiyan: a good-natured and brave man who is pure of heart. It was only when he was found by Bulma Briefs during her search for the Dragon Balls that Goku's journey that extends to even the afterlife and the known universe begins. Throughout his life, faint traces of his Saiyan heritage apparent in his fights, Goku trains himself hard to be the greatest warrior possible and use that power to protect everyone and everything dear him.

  • Ghost mode? (As seen in episode 77, but nothing is known about it yet)

The Super Saiyan

Originally thought to be of mere myth and legend, with the advent of the Frieza Saga, Goku has attained such a form, after he witnessed his best friend Krillin die at the hands of the Galactic Tyrant, Frieza.

Super Saiyan 1

  • Increases power 50x his base form.
  • Proportioned to his physical abilities, which gives him an even greater boost in strength, ki power, speed, stamina and durability.
  • He is able to stack Super Saiyan power multipliers with each form. So with being Super Saiyan 3, he is 400x stronger than his base form.
  • In this form, Goku was able to outclass Frieza, who was giving him huge trouble before. He still wasn't able to defeat Goku even when he used his full power.

Super Saiyan 2

Super Saiyan 3

  • Four times stronger than a Super Saiyan 2, and also once again greatly boosts his stats.
  • 400x stronger than his base form.
  • Is able to fight more evenly with Kid Buu than the previous forms.

Super Saiyan 4

Note: GT is officially not canon to the events of DBZ or DBS. DBS is the official retcon of the 'post-DBZ' canon.

  • Ten times stronger than Super Saiyan 3, which would make a Super Saiyan 4 4000x stronger than Base Goku.

Super Saiyan God

  • The multipilers is unknown.
  • Enormously surpasses even the likes of Super Saiyan 3, allowing Goku to keep up with a Beerus who was holding back, and clash with him, strong enough to create shockwaves that harmed the entire universe.
  • Takes some time to fully master. However, Beerus hinted at the time limit being able to be mitigated.
  • Unlike the other Super Saiyan forms, Super Saiyan God has a time limit, making it not a permanent transformation.
  • Allows the user to regenerate from wounds.
  • While he can lose the form, he can retain it's power, allowing Beerus to continue to battle Beerus on equal grounds using just his base and SS1 Form.
  • Enables the user to possess and sense Godly Ki

Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan (AKA: Super Saiyan Blue)

  • Multiplier is 50x the unknown Super Saiyan God multiplier.
  • As the name suggests, is the Super Saiyan form of Super Saiyan God.
  • With Kaio Ken x10, he is able to gain an even higher increase in strength (10x) and surpass/negates Time skip.
  • Stronger than Super Saiyan God and all previous Super Saiyan forms.
  • Requires Ki Control and Focus.
  • Enables the user to possess and sense Godly Ki.
  • It can also be used alongside the Kaio-Ken due to the forms great Ki control and Focused mind.

Ultra Instinct 

  • An enlightened transformation taught to Goku by Whis.
  • Self-Movement Technique: Goku can automatically react to attacks without effort or thought: focusing entirely on nearly instant muscle reaction rather than brain input. This makes feints and illusions ineffective. Whis confirmed that Goku mastered this technique. He just needs to boost his power since his body does all the other work for him.
    • This changes Goku's skill and fighting style completely.
  • Piccolo claims that Goku is "constantly evolving" during this transformation; with Goku's attacks becoming faster, more powerful and more precise the longer he fights.
    • Is stated to make the user achieve their maximum efficiency in offense, defense, and strategy.
  • Goku has yet to master this new form, after about 3 minutes, it wore off.
  • Currently, Goku needed the energy of the Spirit Bomb to achieve this form.
  • Match Jiren, whose mere power was shaking the whole World of Void, an infinite realm beyond time and space. It's possible that Goku may have been able to defeat Jiren if the transformation didn't expire.
  • Is considered powerful by the standards of the gods of the DBZ multiverse.
    • Some of the lesser gods have been unable to achieve this form despite their attempts.
  • Goku must ignore thinking on how to attack and instead rely on instinct; otherwise, he will not control this form's power properly.
  • This form is exhausting and puts a great amount of strain on Goku after it expires.

Mastered Ultra Instinct

  • Goku's current ultimate and most powerful form.
  • Complete control over the Ultra Instinct ability.
  • On par with Jiren.
  • Only activates when Goku needs it.
  • Despite it's amazing reflexive ability and incredible power, doesn't even last a full minute before his body is put under immense strain, eliminating any chance he has of defending himself, and costing him any fight without outside help.


Pre DBZ/DBS Goku:

DBZ Feats:

  • Crossed the 1,000,000 km Snakeway (albeit only actually flew over 37,000 km because he flew over Snake Way, which is full of curves) in just over a single day or 28 Hours (Saiyan Saga)
  • Base form can lift just under 40 Tons, 10 tons on each limb by the end of the Z series. Contrary to popular believe, this is official Manga canon.

DBS Feats

  • Endure a Barrage of punches from Jiren
  • After mastering Ultra Instinct, made short work of Jiren, and would have defeated him single handedly had Ultra Instinct not failed him last moment.
