Moreover, he is one of the most loved characters in Dragon Ball. While most fans know his story, many are unaware of some hidden details about Goku. So, in this article, we will present you with Goku’s biography and will explore deeper into the characters. 

Who Is Goku? 

Goku is the primary protagonist of the Dragon Ball series. He is the face of the show. He is a hero of Akira Toriyama’s incredible creation, Dragon Ball manga and anime series. Son Goku is a male Saiyan character, who was originally transported to Earth to demolish it.

However, destiny has different plans. He met Grandpa Gohan, who taught him to be good, and under Grandpa and Master Roshi’s training, young Goku polished his abilities to turn into one of the most powerful fighters on Earth.

He strengthened his grip on martial arts and became the greatest defender of the Earth. Goku has passed a long way and now with Goku Ultra Instinct form, he can even compete with the Angels.   

Origin Of Goku 

Goku is introduced as the son of a lower-class Saiyan named Bardock. Though the young lad got the name Goku on Earth, he was originally named Kakarot. He is the son of Bardock and Gi-ne and was born on Planet Vegeta.

Sensing the major threat of Frieza and the demolition of the Saiyan race, Bardock attempted to transport Goku to a new planet named Earth. When Goku was only three years old, Bardock moved him to Earth, where he was rescued by an old man, Grandpa Gohan.

Though Goku was initially a violent child, a deadly trauma turned him into a friendly young lad, as he lost most of his memory. Grandpa Gohan trained the young child and helped him understand the depths of martial arts.

However, soon Gohan realized that Goku turns into a beast when exposed to the full moon. So, Grandpa instructed Goku to never watch the full moon. However, young Goku disobeyed the orders and as a result, he transformed into the Great Ape.

Losing his control, Goku murdered his adoptive Grandpa Gohan, and this started a new chapter in the Saiyan’s life. Later Goku turned into a hero and Goku’s Ultra Instinct transformation became popular across the anime world.



Appearance of Goku

Every character in Dragon Ball Universe carries multiple appearances as they have tons of transformations in their arsenal. However, if we consider the case of our show lead, Goku, his looks resemble his father, Bardock. Like his father, Goku too has the same spiky black hair and the same face cut.

But, Goku has slightly softer eyes, a lighter-pale skin complexion, and a kind heart. However, what makes him different from Bardock is his hairstyle. Goku has two bangs hanging on his left side and three bangs hanging to his right, this gives him a unique look.

Goku was initially introduced when he was 10 years old. He stepped into the scene as a young kid with a mysterious tail and tons of unimaginable powers.

However, at the age of 12, Goku looked even more young and short. For the next few years, Goku did not experience any change in terms of physical development.

However, when he stepped into his 15s, Goku highlighted noticeable physical changes. By the age of 18, Goku was in a growth spurt. He had grown taller and more muscular, which made him stand out in his friend circle.

Goku Ultra Instinct

As he aged and reached 25, he was even stronger, leaner, taller, and massy. 

Goku’s beautiful Gi gives him the look of a warrior. For most of the series, he is spotted wearing an open blue gi surrounded by a white bow-tied obi over the waist. He compliments his looks with dark blue kung-fu shoes and a red wristband. 

During the Android Saga and Majin Buu Saga, we noticed Goku wearing the plain gi without any kanji or blue obi on his waist. He used the same wristbands and dark blue undershirt that gave him a cool look. As the story proceeds, we see Goku retaining the look in the initial chapters of Dragon Ball Super. 

During his training with Whis, the Angel of Universe 7, Goku is spotted wearing his traditional orange clothes with loose gi. He compliments his look with the blue obi and wears blue wristbands that cover his complete forearm part.

However, In Dragon Ball Super: Broly, we witness a change in Goku’s look as he switches to his regular uniform and uses a knot-style obi and “Go” kanji. As the story started in place with cold weather, initially, he wears a blue long jacket that gives him a cool, heroic look. 

If we talk about the Galactic Patrol Prisoner Saga, our main protagonist, Goku wears the emblem of Galactic Patrol leaving behind his traditional clothes. While in Granolah the Survivor arc, Goku switches back to Whis’ kanji and picks the same clothes he used during his training with Whis. 

In the Universe Creation Saga, Goku’s look appears pretty much similar to the previous arcs. However, the creators seemed to have given Goku a dress with a lighter orange tone and a dark blue undershirt. But overall, the look is similar. 

In the most popular 28th World Martial Arts Tournament, Goku is dressed with a turquoise gi complemented with a white knot-style obi. Moreover, orange wristbands, black kung-fu shoes, and dark green pants give him a more classy look. 



Goku Personality  

When introduced in the scene, Goku was an infant, constantly begging for attention. This shows how timid Goku was as a young child. However, when Grandpa Gohan trained Goku, the young boy turned into a super aggressive and savage soul.

As the story proceeds, Goku transformed into a young, handsome hunk, and he became popular among the fans for his kind heart, energetic and caring personality.

Though Goku is showcased as a fearless character, who loves to pick up new challenges, he is pretty submissive to overbearing ladies like his lovely wife Chi-Chi and dearest friend, Bulma.

When it comes to the original anime, Goku has a unique fear of needles titled aichmophobia. He is also terrified of his wife, Chi-Chi. 

Goku is a true foody. Besides challenging fights, something that he loves is delicious food. However, when it comes to his family and friends, he can leave everything. In many of the anime sagas, we have witnessed him selflessly sacrificing his life for the sake of his planet and close ones. 

Like most of the true Saiyans, Goku loves combat. He loves facing worthy opponents who push him to climb up the ladder of power. He loves to train harder and has spent most years of his life training under different mentors.

Though he is extremely powerful and might appear ruthless at times, Goku strongly believes that with love and support, even the darkest soul can change to a good soul. 

Summing up, Goku has a pure heart and has no evil feelings and thoughts. He loves his family and friends and carries the guts to sacrifice his own life for their safety.

He also believes in repaying every debt and, in many instances, we have seen him saving his mightiest enemies. However, sometimes Goku is called an emotional fool and Vegeta calls him a clown.
