I am the hope of the universe. I am the answer to all living things that cry out for peace. I am the protector of the innocent. I am the light in the darkness. I am truth. Ally to good. Nightmare to you!
~ Goku to Frieza

You're a God, I get that. Maybe the strongest of them all… But I don't care, not even you can tell me what my limits are.
~ Goku to Beerus

I'm sorry that took so much longer than the others, but I haven't had much occasion to practice this one. This is what I call a Super Saiyan 3.
~ Goku to Majin Buu

And this... is to go... even further beyond!
~ Goku prior to transforming into Super Saiyan 3

Even with my new power-up, your attacks definitely still sting.
~ Goku to Beerus

Your new form is burning through more power than your body can supply. You should have waited until you were used to this form and knew how to regulate it before you started picking fights.
~ Goku to Golden Frieza

It won’t work. I don’t care how far you push your Time Skip, it won’t stand a chance against what I am now.
~ Goku to Hit

I don't think I'm a hero of justice or anythin'. But, those who'd hurt my friends... I won’t forgive!
~ Goku prior to charging at Jiren

Wow, the room got a lot bigger somehow.
~ Goku after being turned into a kid

Sorry about all that. I'm surprised as well. Surprised at how strong I've become.
~ Goku to Baby

Till we meet again, guys!
~ Future Goku's farewell

I'm a Son Goku from a different dimension than yours. My job is capturing dimension-crossing evil doers.
~ Xeno Goku

Summary

Born a pure-blooded Saiyan on Planet Vegeta, Son Goku is the main protagonist of the Dragon Ball franchise, and is one of the last remaining members of his warrior race.

As a child, Goku was sent to Earth prior to the destruction of Planet Vegeta in order to fulfill his mission and wipe out all life on the planet, conquering it. However, due to falling down a ravine and sustaining what would be a fatal injury to the average human, Goku lost all of his memories relating to his mission and his origins. He was soon found by the Martial Artist, Son Gohan, whom he took a liking to after some time. He decided to adopt Goku. Per Gohan's teachings, he grew up to become one of Earth's finest warriors, striving to take on powerful opponents, grow more powerful and protect the world from any danger that may threaten it or its citizens.

Goku almost always has an upbeat and cheerful personality and is always enticed by the thought of growing in strength and encountering powerful opponents. He has also demonstrated an extraordinary love for food and manages to take down incredibly large quantities of it in one sitting. Though his canon adaptations show him often letting his guard down and typically holding back his power, Xeno Goku, or Goku: Xeno - an alternate version of Goku who's a member of the Time Patrol - has shown that he is much more straight-to-the-point and serious when it comes to getting the job done. It's a similar situation whenever Goku is enraged. For example, when Krillin was killed by Frieza, it drove Goku to the point of unlocking the Super Saiyan transformation which was once thought to be a mere legend. Despite this, Goku can still be merciful, as he was going to let Frieza live had he not tried to kill Goku immediately after.

To further support High-Godly regeneration, we see in the Dragon Ball Super manga that Zen’ō erase Zamasu the exact same way he did in both Xenoverse 2 and the anime, yet he was permanently put down despite possessing Mid-Godly regeneration in the manga. Again, Zen’ō used the exact same ability in each continuity, with there being nothing that separates or differentiates them), Summoning, Air Manipulation, Explosion Manipulation, Non-Physical Interaction, Information Analysis, Precognition, Resistance to: Magic, Mind Manipulation, Possession, Madness Manipulation (Type 2), Corruption, Empathic Manipulation (As a god, Demigra's magic and dark ki are completely ineffective against Goku), Absorption, Paralysis Inducement, Ice Manipulation, Extreme Heat and Cold, Radiation Manipulation, Extrasensory Perception, Gravity Manipulation, Sleep Manipulation, Soul Manipulation, Existence Erasure, and Time Stop, Acausality (Type 1).

Also given that Xeno Goku is literally one half of Vegito, he likely has this resistance), Probability Manipulation, Information Analysis and Power Mimicry (Ahms was incapable of copying data from him), Acausality (Type 1; The Time Breakers tampering with history and the timelines caused many time paradoxes, distortions and anomalies. However, Xeno Goku was never shown to be affected by this, at all)

Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Enhanced Senses, Extrasensory Perception, Master Martial Artist, Pressure Point Strikes, Weapon Mastery (Of the Power Pole), Magic (Via the Power Pole), Ki Manipulation, Energy Projection, Homing Attack, Aura, Flight, Forcefield Creation, Afterimage Creation, Toon Force and Fourth Wall Breaking (Managed to blast a manga panel just as a child. Has previously interacted with the narrator of Dragon Ball Super. Was entirely aware of Dragon Ball being fiction during his interactions with Tori-Bot. Battled God Broly in Dragon Ball Z: The Real 4-D, and was capable of charging his Spirit Bomb using the energy of the audience, as well as fusing with one of them, allowing the fusion "Youku" to one-shot Broly. Far superior to Frieza, who was shown to be a "threat" to our real world), Light Manipulation (Via Solar Flare), Teleportation, Dimensional Travel, Time Travel (In addition to Instant Transmission, Goku's battle with Hit during the Dragon Ball Super English Dub brought an interesting change, as instead of the former being stated to predict the latter's attacks, Goku was actually stated to be forcing himself into the future through sheer power), Telepathy, Telekinesis, Paralysis Inducement, Energy Absorption, Reactive Evolution, Reactive Power Level, Adaptation, Power Mimicry, Sealing (Via the Evil Containment Wave and other nameless techniques), Portal Creation, Sound Manipulation, Self-Sustenance (Types 1 and 2), Immortality (Types 1, 3, 4 and 8), Regeneration (High-Godly), Immortality Negation (Type 8), Healing, Information Analysis, Summoning, which grants Reality Warping, Resurrection and Wish Granting (Via Shenron Mode and the Zen’ō Button), BFR (Can send anyone through space-time via Space-Time Transfer.

In other words, he literally became a conceptual entity that was merging with the entire universe. In addition to hitting him, Goku implied that he could actually defeat him if he had any Senzu Beans, implying that he would have been capable of harming a literal concept. Since both Goku and Zamasu are Low 2-C at the time of this statement, this isn't far-fetched, either), Probability Manipulation and One Hit Kill (Via Miracle CI), Life Manipulation (Via Draw), Existence Erasure, Soul Manipulation, Atomic Destruction and Non-Physical Interaction (Via the Hakai. This technique was also used by Beerus to erase the ghost of Dr. Mashirito. It is worth noting that Goku can interact with incorporeal beings even without it, having fought the Ghost Warrior in Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans), Danmaku, Indomitable Willpower, Will Empowerment, Instinctive Reaction, Resistance to: Electricity, Extreme Heat and Cold (Fought Broly while fully submerged in lava and was completely unaffected by it. Can withstand the temperatures of the upper atmosphere, ice-based attacks from Eis Shenron, etc.), Matter Manipulation, Gravity Manipulation, Sleep Manipulation, Magic, Corruption (Type 3), Possession, Madness Manipulation (Type 2), Mind Manipulation Empathic Manipulation, Soul Manipulation, Existence Erasure, Absorption, Power Nullification, Memory Manipulation, BFR, Probability Manipulation, Status Effect Inducement, Time Manipulation, Time Stop, likely Transmutation, Information Analysis, and Power Mimicry, Acausality (Type 1)

Attack Potency: Small Building level (Was able to crush a large rock with his bear hands), Large Building level as a Great Ape (Was easily destroying Pilaf's castle) | Large Building level+ (Able to beat General Blue around, when the latter managed to survive the high-speed crashing of his plane into a mountain. His Kamehameha blasted a hole into an underwater rock formation), City Block level as a Great Ape | City Block level (Defeated Mercenary Tao, whom one-shot General Blue by fracturing his skull using his tongue, with ease. He later becomes even more powerful, fighting the likes of Tien Shinhan in the 22nd Tenkaichi Budokai) | Moon level (Fought and killed King Piccolo, who is superior to Master Roshi, whom previously destroyed the moon in his MAX Power state and was confirmed to actually be capable of doing so. Then, during the 23rd Tenkaichi Budokai, he defeated Piccolo, who is significantly superior to his father, with his own Super Kamehameha also being directly stated to be capable of destroying the moon) | Large Planet level (Fought Raditz alongside Piccolo, and is equal to the latter, who destroyed the moon with a regular ki blast), higher post-King Kai's training and via Kaioken (Overpowered and defeated Nappa, who is far stronger than Raditz, with no issue. Kaioken amplifies his power even further, allowing him to overwhelm Vegeta when he boosted it up to times 3. Pushing himself to the very limit, he managed to overpower him and his Galick Gun using a Kamehameha boosted by Kaioken x4) | Large Planet level (One-shot Recoome, who is superior to a stronger Vegeta, Gohan and Krillin. Easily defeated Jeice and Burter, and pushed Captain Ginyu - the strongest of the Ginyu Force - to the point of stealing his body), Solar System level post-Zenkai Boost and in Super Saiyan (Fought comparably to a greatly held-back Frieza, who is far above himself in his 1st form, where he casually destroyed Planet Vegeta without even powering up. Overpowered and harmed Frieza with Kaioken x20, and upon obtaining his Super Saiyan form through sheer anger, he completely surpassed even the tyrant's full power) | Solar System level (As a Full Power Super Saiyan, he battled a suppressed Perfect Cell, who is leagues ahead of the likes of Frieza even in his Imperfect Form, and even managed to completely disintegrate his upper-body with a Kamehameha) | Universe level+ (As a Super Saiyan 3, he stated that he could defeat Fat Buu, who was stated to be able to destroy the universe, also forcing the involvement of the Supreme Kai, which only occurs if the universe is ever in danger. Later traded blows with Kid Buu, who was deemed the strongest of every Buu up until this point and whom he stated would make the universe "go poof" if him and Vegeta fail to defeat him, with their battle being showcased in a manga chapter titled "A Match with the Whole Universe at Stake". This makes End of Z Goku stronger than Buuhan, who absorbed Piccolo, Gotenks and Ultimate Gohan, the latter of whom casually beat Super Buu up, despite his superiority to Fat Buu) | Small Country level to Country level (Overpowered Piccolo, who could casually destroy a country) | Universe level+ (Albeit briefly, he battled Super Garlic Junior, who created the Dead Zone, which is described in the Daizenshuu Attack Dictionary as being a "hyperspace", i.e. 4th-dimensional space) | Dwarf Star level+ (Should be as powerful as himself during the Toeiverse Saiyan Saga, making him superior to King Vegeta, who was capable of performing this feat. Defeated Dr. Wheelo, who overpowered his Kaioken x3 state, using the Spirit Bomb) | Solar System level (Defeated Turles, whose peak is comparable to 1st Form Frieza) | Solar System level (Fought Lord Slug, who was stated by King Kai to already be superior to Frieza in his base form, and Goku was completely overpowering him as a False Super Saiyan prior to facing his Giant Namekian form) | Solar System level (Fought Cooler and, as a Super Saiyan, he overwhelmed and defeated him in his Final Form, in which he is superior to Frieza - who caused an explosion this powerful by destroying Planet Namek - and was implied by Takao Koyama to be more powerful than Lord Slug) | Solar System level (Fought Meta-Cooler in his base form then as a Super Saiyan, even managing to destroy one of him when assisted by Super Saiyan Vegeta) | Solar System level (Around as powerful as himself in the Cell Saga. Fought Android 13 and, after being overpowered by a much more powerful Super Android 13, he one-shot him as a Super Saiyan powered up by the Spirit Bomb) | Universe level+ (Comparable to Broly, whom prior to even transforming into a Super Saiyan, was deemed a threat to the whole universe, the same being stated about his Legendary Super Saiyan form. After receiving the rest of the Z-Fighters' energy, including that of Vegeta, Gohan, Piccolo and Trunks, he managed to one-shot Legendary Super Saiyan Broly despite the latter totally overpowering them individually and while working together) | Universe level+ (As powerful as he is during the Buu Saga. Shook the entire Afterlife while transforming into a Super Saiyan 3, surpassing Fat Janemba in the process. Somewhat comparable to Super Janemba, who is considered one of the most powerful Dragon Ball Z movie villains, as indicated by the fact that he was listed as such in Toei's website prior to Koyama's statement regarding Broly supposedly being the strongest) | Universe level+ (Fought Hirudegarn, who was stated to be capable of destroying the universe, as a Super Saiyan 3, defeating it via the Dragon Fist) | Universe level+ (Could trade blows with General Rilldo, who is superior to Kid Buu according to Goku himself, when various forms of Buu were deemed threats to the whole universe. On-par with Meta-Rilldo, who is stronger than his Base Form, as a Super Saiyan, with the latter form also surpassing Uub, whom is stronger than Kid Buu. His Super Saiyan 4 form should easily at least make him a rival to Super Vegito, who withstood Buuhan's barrier formed through alternate dimensions that would have destroyed the entire universe. In said form, he also gained the upper hand on Super Baby 2, whom overwhelmed his Super Saiyan 3 state without much trouble, essentially stomping him in return. After "breaking his limits", he became strong enough to contend with Syn Shenron), higher via Dragon Fist (Capable of severely harming those who are significantly stronger than himself, including Super 17 and Omega Shenron) and the Universal Spirit Bomb (Obliterated Omega Shenron) | Universe level+ (Despite being casually dominated by him as a Super Saiyan 3, Goku traded blows and fought on-par with a held-back Beerus, who should be superior to all of the aforementioned villains, as a Super Saiyan God, pushing him all the way up to 70% of his power and far surpassing any opponent he previously faced. In Resurrection F, after absorbing the initial Super Saiyan God ritual into his base form, he achieved the Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan form, which should be superior to the Super Saiyan God form, allowing him to do battle with Golden Frieza, albeit they both remain inferior to Beerus) | Universe level+ (Much stronger than himself by the end of the canon Dragon Ball Z series), Low Multiverse level in Super Saiyan God, Multiverse level via Transformations (In his newly attained Super Saiyan God form, he battled God of Destruction Beerus, with their clash being stated to be capable of turning the entirety of Universe 7's Macrocosm into an empty void of nothingness. Provided how Dragon Ball Super later describes a "void" as a realm devoid of space and time, we can presume that the fight between Goku and Beerus would have turned Universe 7 into a similar state, supporting the manner in which the statements were made and the idea that destruction covering 2-C range should be this tier regardless. Goku proceeded to absorb the powers of his Super Saiyan God form, retaining it in his base form and gaining the ability to stack his transformations on top of it, which allowed him to continue fighting Beerus in his Super Saiyan form) | Low Multiverse level, Multiverse level via Transformations (Following the events of Battle of Gods, Goku underwent multiple months of training with Whis, allowing him to become stronger and achieve his Super Saiyan Blue form, which is superior to the Super Saiyan God form, in which he later fights Golden Frieza. After 3 years spent training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, he became comparable to Hit, who easily defeated Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta and Frost, matching him as a Super Saiyan Blue and temporarily overpowering him upon stacking Kaioken x10 onto said form. Fought Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black and Zamasu during the Future Trunks Saga, multiple times, even briefly clobbering them when he was enraged. Later on, he put up a fight against Fusion Zamasu, overwhelming him a few times using the Kamehameha and Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken x20) | Multiverse level (Following the Future Trunks Saga, Goku fought equally against Hit, defeating him in his Super Saiyan Blue form alone, when he previously required Kaioken x10 stacked onto it in order to briefly overpower him. This takes Goku's base form to 2-B, as it indicates that his training made him at least 10x more powerful, if not more, as Hit himself grew in power as well) | Multiverse level (Fought Bergamo in his base form and as a Super Saiyan, before overpowering his Giant Form's Wolfgang Penetrator attack in Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken using the Kamehameha, shocking some of the Gods with his aura's sheer pressure. Goku then fought base Toppo, still holding back some of his power in the process. In the Tournament of Power itself, he exchanged blows with multiple fighters from Universe 9, eventually eliminating them with help from Vegeta in their Base/Super Saiyan forms, with the final blow to Bergamo, Lavender and Basil being in their Super Saiyan Blue forms - a Final Kamehameha combination), higher with the Spirit Bomb (His Spirit Bomb powered by most of Universe 7's fighters caused Jiren to put some effort into pushing it back, albeit he was still heavily suppressed, impressing the Gods of Destruction and causing Universe 11's, Belmod, to worry. Jiren was stated to by far be the mightiest threat the Z-Fighters have ever faced, putting him above Infinite Zamasu, who was merging with the entire point in time he was in and was seeping into the past) | Multiverse level (Immensely stronger than before. Clashed with a still heavily suppressed Jiren, albeit less so than before. In Ultra Instinct -Sign- 2, he fought and defeated Berserk Super Saiyan 2 Kefla, who surpasses his previous Ultra Instinct form and the Universe 7 Spirit Bomb, with a fully powered Kamehameha. Following his second time tapping into the form, he became strong enough to fight Jiren alongside Vegeta in Super Saiyan Blue, forcing the former to start approaching his true power) | Multiverse level (After overpowering his regular state, Goku clashed with Burning Ultimate Warrior Jiren - essentially the latter breaking his limits and surpassing his own full power - and would have eliminated him if it wasn't for his body giving out at the last second) | Multiverse level (Stronger than his battered self at the end of the Tournament of Power, where he fought and overcame a weakened Jiren alongside Android 17 and Frieza. Fought Broly throughout his various transformations, keeping up with his Wrathful form in Super Saiyan Blue. Equal to Vegeta) | Universe level+ (Just as a Super Saiyan, Goku believed he would be capable of defeating Super Perfect Cell and keeping up with Kid Buu), Low Multiverse level in Super Saiyan God (The battle between himself and Beerus was causing the entirety of Universe 7 to shake, and eventually would have completely destroyed it) | Low Multiverse level (Was implied to have absorbed the Super Saiyan God transformation into his Base Form), Multiverse level via Transformations (Obtained the Super Saiyan Blue transformation, which is far superior to all of his other transformations, including Super Saiyan God. Later spent 3 years training alongside Vegeta in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, allowing them to trade blows with Goku Black and Zamasu prior to them fusing together. In Mastered Super Saiyan Blue, he even managed to compete with Fusion Zamasu. In Ultra Instinct, he is capable of contending with Jiren, who is superior to God of Destruction Belmod, whom should be somewhat comparable to Beerus and Champa, whose battle would have destroyed Universe 7) | At least Multiverse level (Capable of fighting Demon God Demigra, who was stated to transcend all of space-time on multiple occasions, and later his Giant Demon God Form if the conditions are met in-game, alongside the Future Warrior, their battle resulting in the collapse of the Crack of Time. Previously managed to hold back a blast from the Demon God, which would have destroyed the entire multiverse and every timeline) | At least Multiverse level (Assisting the Xenoverse 2 Future Warrior prior to the events of the Universe 6 Saga, he fought and defeated Final Form Mira, who far surpasses his Base Form, in which he is already capable of performing similar feats to Demigra's and could greatly damage the original Future Warrior. Following this battle, Goku underwent similar events to the Dragon Ball Super anime, becoming more powerful through training and fighting the likes of Hit, Goku Black, etc. Traded blows with the Xenoverse 2 Future Warrior empowered by energy from Fu at the end of the Infinite History Saga whilst in Ultra Instinct) | High Multiverse level+ (In his base form, he defeated Demigra, who managed to transcend space and Dragon Ball Heroes as a whole, entering the "Real World", a dimension that views the Dragon Ball Heroes Multiverse as merely fictional manga and videogames. Fought against Chamel, who was collapsing the "Real World" with his mere presence. In Super Saiyan 3, he one-shot Gravy, who is in the same league of power as other Demon Gods and is superior to Demigra. Battled Sealas, who can form extradimensional space and was threatening to destroy all of existence. In his base form, he fought Super Saiyan Blue Vegito, Super Saiyan Kefla, Toppo, and base Jiren alongside Xeno Vegeta, before transforming into a Super Saiyan 4 and battling Ultra Instinct Goku, as well as Super Saiyan Blue Evolution Vegeta. Became much more powerful by the Universe Mission Arc, as he fought on par with Demon God Dabura, who was able to clash with Super Saiyan 4 Xeno Gogeta. Buu, with the same power, also previously fought Xeno Vegito, meaning Universe Arc Xeno Goku became as powerful as, if not more powerful than, the Dark Empire Arc fusions) | High Multiverse level+ (In Super Saiyan Blue, CC Goku managed to defeat Xeno Goku, even being stated by the latter to be a step above him. Easily overpowered Kamin and Oren in his Ultra Instinct form, making him far superior to the likes of Hit. Handily defeated Kanba, making him superior to both Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken CC Vegito and Super Saiyan 4 Xeno Vegito) | High Multiverse level+ (Comparable to Prometheus - A Keyman originating from Umbras who utilizes the power of an Onyx Book to convey the events of all Jump Worlds as mere stories to the Real World, existing in a rift where he watches over both the Jump Worlds and the Real World. Onyx Books also hold the power to change said worlds. In other words, Prometheus treats the Jump Worlds as fiction, even referring to manipulating them as "trivial", and can link them with the Real World, which also views these Jump Worlds as such - manga panels, stories, etc.)

Stamina: Extremely High (Can undergo rigorous training for numerous days with little rest, as well as participate in combat for extended periods of time. Even if he is mortally injured or extremely drained, Goku has demonstrated the ability to continue fighting and pull miraculous victories off in the most dire of situations against the likes of Vegeta, Piccolo, etc.), Low in Ultra Instinct (Lasts for a few minutes at most and puts a huge strain on his body)

Standard Equipment: The Power Pole, the Flying Nimbus, Senzu Beans, the Zen'ō Button, etc.

Intelligence: Average academically, Extraordinary Genius combat tactician and martial artist (Goku is consistently and strongly shown to be an adept martial artist and combat tactician, having demonstrated incredible skill against many formidable opponents, including the likes of Frieza and Vegeta, often catching them off-guard with his unpredictability. Furthermore, he has shown the ability to optimize his style of combat, as he pointed out and eliminated the flaws of the Super Saiyan transformation and has demonstrated the ability to adjust his fighting style during combat to counter his opponents. What's even more impressive is that, by studying and adapting to Hit's fighting style and Time Skip ability, Goku was able to predict his attacks and effectively fight back against him. Xeno Goku, having become a Time Patroller, has been shown resorting to different methods of success should pure strength not suffice, utilizing them as soon as he possibly could)

Weaknesses: OGDB - Grabbing his tail greatly weakens Goku, rendering him completely vulnerable, although he eventually overcame this weakness following the Red Ribbon Saga. Incapable of transforming into a Great Ape without a full moon. As a Great Ape, he becomes animalistic in nature and is completely berserk. DBZ/DBGT/DBS/CC - Is prone to letting his guard down and getting distracted. As he always enjoys a good fight, Goku prefers to battle his opponents at their best, often selfishly letting them reach their full potential. Kaioken puts a huge strain on his body, although he partially got over this by the Tournament of Power. Super Saiyan 3 is highly draining, and thus only lasts for a limited amount of time. It is mandatory that he possesses a suitably container in order to use the Evil Containment Wave. The Spirit Bomb requires a long amount of time to charge, especially when no people of high power levels are around to charge it, leaving him wide open to enemy attacks. Has to detect a ki signature to be capable of using Instant Transmission. Xeno Goku - Failure of Miracle CI's Probability Manipulation would eliminate its One Hit Kill. Otherwise, none notable.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Ki: The fighting power and life force of a martial artist, a tangible energy derived from the user's vigor, courage, and mind. It can be used in a number of ways, such as to surpass the limits of one's body to greatly increase in strength, and it can be fired as blasts of energy or used to create defensive barriers. Along with his Saiyan blood, Ki acts as the source of Goku's incredible power and abilities. Goku's prodigal skill in combat and the use of ki allows him to replicate the ki techniques of others after seeing them only once. After becoming a Super Saiyan God, Goku gained divine ki, which can only be sensed by other gods.

  • Kamehameha: Goku's famous signature technique, which he learned after witnessing Master Roshi use it to extinguish the flames on Fire Mountain, successfully replicating it not long later on his first try. As his signature technique, it is something that Goku has used on many occasions, and he has created a number of variations over the course of his fighting experience, such as firing it from his feet, using it to propel himself into the air, and bending it mid-flight to catch opponents by surprise. Perhaps the most useful variation is the Instant Kamehameha, in which Goku uses Instant Transmission to teleport just before firing the attack, appearing right in front of his opponents and giving them no time to dodge. As of the Tournament of Power, Goku has once again used this technique in a new way, as a barrier against other attacks.
  • Instant Transmission: A teleportation technique that Goku learned between the Frieza and Cell Sagas on the planet Yardrat, which allows him to lock onto the ki signatures of others and teleport to their locations. Its use takes some concentration, which is aided by Goku putting his index and middle fingers to his forehead (He has also shown to teleport without placing his fingers), and he needs a ki signature to teleport to, otherwise he cannot perform the technique. It can be used to teleport others as well, as long as they are in physical contact with Goku.
  • Kaioken: A technique developed by King Kai and taught to Goku during his time training on his planet. It greatly increases Goku's ki for just a moment, boosting his strength and speed significantly for that time. However, this heavily strains his body, and if he overuses it, it will leave him in intense pain all over his body, leaving him incapable of moving without causing himself further pain. Initially, the strongest Kaio-ken Goku can utilize is x4, but by the time of the Frieza Saga, he has mastered its use, allowing him to push it to his maximum of x20. After mastering Super Saiyan Blue, which required perfect ki control and a calm mind, Goku became capable of using Kaio-ken alongside this transformation, first pushing it to x10, and then x20.
  • Genki Dama (Spirit Bomb): Goku's ultimate attack, taught to him by King Kai, performed by gathering a vast amount of energy from all the lifeforms in his surroundings to create a massive, incredibly destructive sphere of ki. To use it, one must have a pure heart, and so Goku is a perfect user of the technique due to his obliviously innocent nature. While it is incredibly powerful and can prove capable of completely destroying an opponent when used with sufficient power, it takes a very long time to charge and is therefore very difficult to use, though the charge time can be sped up by gathering energy from those who willingly and knowingly provide it.
  • Kiai: The ability to project an invisible burst of force with ki, which Goku can perform with his hands and even with a glare.
  • Kienzan (Destructo Disk): Krillin's signature technique, which Goku presumably copied from him. Raising his hand above his head, Goku creates a razor-sharp disc of ki with incredible cutting power, and then throws it at his opponent. During the Tournament of Power, Goku utilizes a variation on the technique, the Kienzan Hexa Blade, a Kienzan that splits into five different blades, each under Goku's control and attacking his opponent from different angles.
  • Solar Flare: One of Tien Shinhan's signature techniques, which Goku copied from him during their match in the World Tournament. Bringing his hands up to his face, Goku can create a bright flash of light that can blind opponents.
  • Telepathy: Goku has the ability to telepathically communicate with others, presumably learned from King Kai during his time in the afterlife, and during the Frieza Saga, he shows the ability to read Krillin's mind by putting his hand to his forehead.

Mafuba: Also known as the Evil Containment Wave, the Mafuba is a mystic sealing technique designed to seal evil away by sucking them into a special container with a "demon seal" ofuda on it. Goku learned this technique from Roshi, and attempted to use it to seal Future Zamasu, but used the wrong tag, allowing him to break free.

Martial Arts: Goku is a master martial artist who has learned from many of his universe's greatest teachers, from his adoptive grandfather, Grandpa Gohan, Master Roshi, Korin, Kami, King Kai, and even Whis.

  • Crazy Fist: A technique meant to distract and confuse an opponent, in which Goku acts like a wild, frenzied dog or monkey before striking his opponent while they're caught off guard.
  • Dragonthrow: Goku's signature grapple, in which he grabs his opponent by the arm, tail, or antenna, and then spins them around before throwing them away.
  • Eight-Arm Fist: A technique used to counter Tien Shinhan's Four Witches Technique and copied from King Chappa, in which Goku moves his arms so fast that he appears to have eight of them.
  • Rock, Scissors, 'N' Paper: Goku's initial signature technique, taught to him by his grandfather. After yelling "Jan Ken", Goku then follows up with either a strong punch (rock), a poke to the eyes (scissors), or an open palm strike (paper).

Saiyan Physiology: The physiology of a Saiyan, an aggressive warrior race of conquerors. Saiyans have the natural ability to control ki and to fly, likely the origin of Goku's own incredible skill when it comes to the usage and control of ki. In addition, while his lifespan is comparable to that of a human, Goku will remain at his peak strength for much longer. One of the most powerful abilities of a Saiyan is their ability to grow stronger and stronger through combat, allowing Goku to constantly push his own limits during a fight and rise to higher and higher peaks in power. This ability grants a substantial boost in power when Goku is badly injured, allowing him to reach a whole new level of power once he recovers.

  • Super Saiyan: The famous, legendary transformation of a Saiyan that allows them to greatly surpass their limits and reach the fabled state that is Super Saiyan. Goku was the first Super Saiyan to appear in Dragon Ball, achieving the state after Frieza survived his most powerful attack, killed his best friend, Krillin, and was about to kill him and his son. These transformations can be reached through extensive training, but are more often unlocked in moments of intense emotional turmoil and need, and due to the natural aggressiveness of Saiyans, they cause the user to become more aggressive and malicious, though Goku has managed to make these things effectively a non-issue through training. While immensely powerful, Super Saiyan transformations drain a lot of energy, and the first was very inefficient before Goku mastered the state and became a "Full Power Super Saiyan", allowing him to maintain the form effectively indefinitely without issue. While the original Super Saiyan state is eclipsed in power by Super Saiyan 2 and Super Saiyan 3, the higher forms become increasingly inefficient.
  • Super Saiyan God: A divine transformation that far surpasses the regular numbered Super Saiyan transformations, achieved through a ritual involving six righteous Saiyans, or through rigorous divine training. Goku reached this form with the help of his family and friends so that he could oppose the God of Destruction Beerus and stop him from destroying Earth. In this form, Goku gains divine ki and cannot be sensed by mortals, as well as the ability to absorb and nullify energy and ki-based techniques. After achieving this form, Goku can transform into it whenever he wishes and retains some of the divine power even in his base state.
    • Super Saiyan Blue: A form reached through the combination of Super Saiyan God and Super Saiyan, greatly surpassing the power of a Super Saiyan God. Unlike other Super Saiyan transformations, this transformation requires a perfectly calm mind and flawless ki control, allowing it to be used alongside Kaio-ken for various transformations.

Ultra Instinct -Sign-: Also known as the Mastery of Self-Movement, Ultra Instinct -Sign- is a rare and fabled technique that Goku initially learned of from Whis, revolving around subconsciously avoiding attacks and disregarding his normal capacity to react. This allows him to effectively multitask, thinking up strategies while his body fights for him, fully maximizing his offensive and defensive capabilities, and as he doesn't need to think to fight, it also makes illusory techniques useless. Much faster opponents would still be able to bypass these defenses. Goku reaches this state in his Ultra Instinct -Sign- transformation, achieved after he was pushed to his absolute limits. He hasn't mastered the state, however, and cannot enter it willingly - instead, it activates when Goku is pushed to his limits. It is also harder for him to use this version of Ultra Instinct offensively, as he still has to think about the best method of attack, instead of simply intuiting it. This transformation is only temporary, and it has a great strain on Goku's body.

Ultra Instinct: The problems exemplified with Ultra Instinct -Sign-, mainly that of not being able to fully utilize attack and defense, were a key factor in preventing Goku from fighting on an equal playing field with Jiren. However, by giving into pure impulse and the heat which previously was his limit, Goku was able to fully break through his limits and reach past the state of the gods, something that not even Beerus has been able to do. In so doing, Goku reached the true Ultra Instinct form, with his hair and eyebrows matching his intense silver stare, and a great stream of white-purple energy erupting from his body. In this form, where he has mastered both instinctual attack and defense, he was easily able to blitz and injure Jiren, as well as nullify a full-powered strike meant to incapacitate him.
