Attack Potency: Small Building level (Was able to crush a large rock with his bear hands), higher as an Oozaru (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 an Oozaru (Its strength boost should warrant this tier) | City Block level (Defeated Mercenary Tao, who 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) | Planet level (Fought and killed King Piccolo, who is superior to Master Roshi, who previously destroyed the moon in his MAX Power state and was confirmed to actually be capable of doing so. Piccolo was also able to greatly damage Shenron, who restored the moon. Then, during the 23rd Tenkaichi Budokai, he defeated Piccolo Junior, 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 against Raditz, who's stronger than piccolo who could do this. Overpowered Vegeta who can destroy the planet with his Galick Gun) | Small Star level (Far stronger than Recoome, Burter and Jeice and far superior to Captain Ginyu with the Kaioken), | Solar System level (Fought against Final Form Frieza, who's over 200x stronger than his first form which could do this), higher as a Super Saiyan (Is 50x stronger than base) | Solar System level (Fought somewhat equally against Perfect Cell and has gotten far stronger than he was against Frieza), likely High Universe level (In his perfect form, Cell was stated to have infinite power which coincides with Toriyama stating you can't measure power levels from a certain point. Elder Moori stated Cell would destroy the universe and Cell stated he would bring the end of everything, turning it into a darkness of space with nothing remaining. Cell is also equal to suppressed Dabura, who is physically stronger than Babadi who almost destroyed the universe) | High Universe level (As a SSJ3, Goku could fight against Fat Buu who can destroy the universe. The fight against Buu had the fate of the entire universe on the line. Stated at full power he could possibly defeat Kid Buu who he stated could destroy the universe. The title of the episode is "A match with the whole universe at stake. " The Universe is stated to be infinite in size multiple times and has infinite galaxies) | Low Multiverse level (As a Super Saiyan God him and Beerus were going to turn Universe 7 into an empty void. There were numerous statements that the universe would be destroyed. Goku and Beerus were also affecting the afterlife and the Kaioshin Realm; the Macrocosm, which is a seperate dimension, meaning they would have to breach space-time. Destroyed Beerus' Sphere of Destruction, which was the strongest attack in the entire battle in base after absorbing the powers of a Super Saiyan God. In RoF, he obtained Super Saiyan Blue, which is stronger than Super Saiyan God. Was only slightly weaker than Golden Frieza, who was stated to be infinitely stronger than before) | Low Multiverse level (Base Goku at this point had surpassed Super Saiyan God Goku from Battle of Gods). Multiverse level with transformations (Even a Kaioken x 20 would put Goku at this tier) | At least Low Multiverse level (Trained with Whis even more at his base got far stronger than before. Goku clearly becomes many times more powerful with a small amount of training and likely gained Zenkais during his training with Whis). Multiverse level with transformations | Multiversal  (Implied he could have defeated Infinite Zamasu if he had a Senzu Bean) | Multiversal (Upon gaining Ultra Instinct, Goku shook the world of void, a dimension infinite in size. Surpassed the initial Ultra Instinct in his Super Saiyan Blue form and got even stronger as the tournament progressed) | At least Universe level+, possibly up to Hyperversal (As a Super Saiyan God, Goku should be superior to the Mysterious Man, who could create a space that is made from many layers of dimensional walls. Shalot's fight against Giblet as a Super Saiyan God was described as multi-dimensional) | High Multiverse level (In Xenoverse 1, Goku held back Demigra's energy blast, that was going to extinguish all of history. History has infinite diverging timelines in the book of beginning and end. There also exists a seperate flow of history, with it's own flow of space-time, which doesn't affect the regular history. This history is stated to be infinite and contains possibilities which are accessibe. The number of timelines is infinitely expanding as Dragon Ball follows the many worlds theory. Any event spawns many different futures. As there are infinite possibilities for each event, the event spawns infinite branches. Additionaly, there is the Crack of Time. The Crack of Time is a closed space outside the linear flow of time. Chronoa stated that it shouldn't actually exist, and is interconnected with the history of Dragon Ball; the infinite timelines of Dragon Ball exist as floating 4th dimensional crystals within it. This implies infinite sets of 12-18 universes across 4 seperate sets of infinite timelines. The Crack of Time should be 5th dimensional considering it houses infinite 4-D structures) | Complex Multiverse level (Xeno Goku is more powerful than Demigra, and defeated him in base or Super Saiyan alongside Beat. Demigra was causing the collapse of the entire Dragon Ball multiverse, the Crack of Time and his evil energy transcended space and the Dragon Ball world. The Heroes world contains 3 extra-dimensional spaces. Breaking the boundaries between dimensions to reach the Overworld, a dimension which views Dragon Ball as fiction. Beat has to become an avatar to enter the Heroes world. Xeno Goku also accessed the Real World, meaning he would need to transcend space as well) | Low Complex Multiverse level (Should be comparable to his Ultimate Mission X and World Mission counterparts. Xeno Goku transforming into a Super Saiyan 4 affects all of time according to Chronoa. Comparable to POTU Chronoa who has the power of all of time, and is comparable to Youth Mechi who can destroy everything, which includes 3 extra-dimensional spaces and the Crack of Time. Stronger than Beat who can freely traverse the Real World and the DBH world. Beat could beat the Shadow Dragons who were going to collapse the DBH world and also break into the Real World) | Low Complex Multiverse level (Superior to base Sealas, who was going to rewrite all of history/existence and break the boundaries between dimension by transcending into the Real World. The DBH multiverse already possesses 3 extra-dimensional spaces and the Real World is still above that) | Low Complex Multiverse level (CC Vegeta called Xeno Vegeta (and Goku) weak. Xeno Goku and Vegeta were shocked by their counterparts power. After losing to them after they gained a Zenkai boost, they defeated them once again via Super Saiyan Blue Evolution and Ultra Instinct) | Complex Multiverse level (Goku is portrayed to be the strongest in the Jump team, which would make him more powerful than the likes of Pegasus Seiya. Should be comparable to Xeno Goku) | High Outerverse level (Goku with the Jump Force Genki is comparable to Prometheus, who was going to transcend the Jump World and even the Real World which views all Jump worlds and their characters as fiction. Which includes the likes of Ajimu Najimi)

Speed: Superhuman (Tagged a Pterodactyl, which can reach speeds of up to 67 mph) | Subsonic (Can move much faster than what Tenkaichi Budokai competitors can keep up with, appearing as nothing more than a blur to them) with Supersonic+ combat speed (Capable of dodging bullets. Moved at such speeds while fighting Nam) | Hypersonic+ (Blitzed Mercenary Tao following his training on Korin's tower) | Relatvistic (His kamehameha should be relative to Roshi's Kamehameha which reached the moon this fast) | Relativistic (Comparable to Piccolo who can do this. After King Kai's training casually dodged and blitzed Nappa). FTL in Kaioken (Can multiply his stats by 4x, which should place him at the FTL range) | At least FTL (Far faster than before, and blitzed Recoome, who gave Vegeta immense trouble) | At least FTL+ in base (Travelled across Namek this fast). Massively FTL in Kaioken and Super Saiyan (20x faster in Kaiokenx20 and 50x in Super Saiyan) | Massively FTL+ (Fought against Perfect Cell, who is stronger and faster than Vegeta who could have his ki blasts reah outer space in seconds. Dodged a kamehameha from Cell at point blank range as well as getting much faster than before because of his training in the RoSaT) | Massively FTL+ (Fought against Kid Buu and at full power would be stronger and faster than him, kid Buu himself being capable off destroying galaxies over a short amount of time) | Massively FTL+ (Fought against a suppressed Beerus. The shockwaves from their fight was felt throughout the universe in a very short time span. Got even faster after training with Whis and attaining Super Saiyan Blue)| Massively FTL+ (Far faster than before. Broke Hit's Time Stop with pure power and speed) | Massively FTL+ (Could keep up with Fused Zamasu and Goku Black) | At least Massively FTL+, likely Infinite (Superior to Beerus, who is somewhat comparable to Whis, who can freely cross the from U7 to Zeno's world which would be infinite distance. Flew back from Universe 10 to Universe 7. The universes are infinite in size) | At least Massively FTL+, possibly Immeasurable | Immeasurable (The mentors can freely traverse time and timelines through flight. Swifter than Mira and towa who are disconnected from the regular flow of time and transcend time. Swifter than Demigra who is stated to be beyond time and space and transcends time and space) | Immeasurable (Transcended space and the Dragon Ball Heroes world) | Immeasurable (Comparable to Beat who can freely traverse the DBH world and the Real World. Superior to Towa who can follow and travel alongside the Dark Dragon balls that can fly through time to other timelines; beyond time and space. Superior to the Shadow Dragons who flew to infinite different timelines) | Immeasurable (Can freely break the boundaries between the Real World and the DBH world) | Immeasurable (CC Goku should be swifter than Xeno Goku) | Immeasurable | Irrelevant

Lifting Strength: Mostly Unknown

Striking Strength: Small Building Class, higher as an Oozaru | Large Building Class+, City Block Class as an Oozaru | City Block Class | Planet Class | Large Planet Class (Can harm Vegeta) | Small Star Class | Solar System Class (Comparable to Final Form Frieza), higher as a Super Saiyan (Can severly harm Full power Frieza who survived the planet exploding on him) | Solar System level | High Universe level (Can harm Kid Buu and Fat Buu) | Low Multiverse level | Low Multiverse level.

Stamina: Extremely high

Range: Standard melee range. Planetary - Multiversal in canon. Standard melee range. High Multiversal to High Outerversal in games

Standard Equipment: None Notable. Xeno Goku has his Power Pole

Intelligence: Genius in combat; has years of experience in martial arts and has been taught by the universes greatest fighters and even cosmic characters such as Whis. Xeno Goku should be well above average considering his knowledge of timelines and how time functions.

Weaknesses: Canon Goku can't breathe in the vaccum of space for too long. Although he can survive in it longer than regular humans. Canon and CC Goku tend to hold back and wait for their opponent to be at full strength. Xeno Goku has a short temper

Note: The Crack of Time isn't actually devoided of time-space entirely. It is a natural time rift with it's own space-time seperated from the regular multiverse's dimension of time, yet being interconnected with it in a strange way.

Note #2: Please check Prometheus and Ajimu before trying to criticise his Jump Force Genki key.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • 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).
  • 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 utilise 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 utilises 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.
  • 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 God Super Saiyan: 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 maximising 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 defences. 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 utilise attack and defence, 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 defence, he was easily able to blitz and injure Jiren, as well as nullify a full-powered strike meant to incapacitate him.
