Son Gokou, born with the name Kacarrot, is the protagonist in the Dragon Ball comic and animated series. Gokou is a Saiyan born on Planet Vegeta known as Kacarrot. Three years after his birth, his parents sent him away from Planet Vegeta to Planet Earth due to his father's suspicion of Freeza the Evil Emperor. Some time later, the young Kacarrot is found on Earth by a elderly man known as Son Gohan, and he named the Saiyan "Son Gokou" because he came from the sky. One time, Gokou fell in a ravine and lost his evil Saiyan nature, becoming a naive and innocent child. Years later, at the age of 12, Gokou was visited by a young girl named Bulma who was in search of the Dragon Balls, so the two went on an adventure to retrieve the seven magical balls to grant a wish from the dragon known as Shenron.
He is the son of Barduck and Gine, the younger brother of Raditz, the adoptive grandson of Son Gohan, the husband of Chi-Chi,, the son-in-law of Gyuumaoh, the father of Son Gohan and Son Goten, the father-in-law of Videl, and the grandfather of Pan.
Originally as an infant Saiyan, Gokou was programmed with intense hostility to carry out his mission of eradicating all sentient life on Earth. When found by Son Gohan, he was unruly and aggressive, wanting nothing to do with the elder, although this was seemingly only when worked up as when he was initially found by Gohan, he quickly took a liking to the elder. However, after the head injury that caused him to lose his memory as Kacarrot along with his more violent Saiyan tendencies, Gokou became well known for his energetic and caring personality, traits he seemed to inherit from his mother Gine. He was also taught to be respectful to others by Gohan. He takes most situations in stride, he rarely lets things get him worked up; he quickly got over losing his tail each time. He is however not without fear. Gokou is shown to be scared of overbearing women like Bulma and Chi-Chi, even to the point of Kame-Sennin jokingly declaring that for all his universal-class might, he is terrified to face his wife. In the animated series, he also has a crippling fear of needles. He is also not beyond feeling sorrow, most noticeably seen from the loss of his grandfather. He also shows genuine concern for the well-being of those close to him. When Kame-Sennin seemingly died against Ganos, Gokou frantically rushed to his aid, desperate to save his mentor and shed tears of joy when he managed to revive the elder.
He is well-noted for his love of any food, which can be quite comical at times. When put to sleep while facing "Juckie-Chun", Bulma told Gokou dinner was ready, instantly waking him up. Like most Saiyans, Gokou loves combat, and loves to challenge strong opponents. As such Gokou rarely shows nervousness or fear when fighting. Though he has admitted to times facing foes that leave him genuinely afraid, such as Golden Freeza. While not arrogant in his abilities (especially compared to Vegeta), Gokou has a tendency to be too relaxed and recklessly challenge anyone he views as strong to a fight. Despite his fighting spirit, he is at heart a pacifist as he often spares his enemies, trying to avoid hurting or even killing people if possible and never using more strength than necessary. This combined with his naturally gentle nature can lead to him letting his guard down.
Gokou is pure of heart, possessing no negative feelings or thoughts and highly loyal to his friends and family, even willing to sacrifice himself to save others as he did against Raditz and Cell. He also strongly believes in repaying debts, as he gave the then-evil Vegeta a Senzu for technically saving Gohan and Klilyn from the Ginew Special Corps. He has a very practical and carefree view on life and his goals are very simple and, only seeking to test the limits of his might as a warrior. He has no interest in luxury or higher ranking positions as he rejected Kami-sama's offer to become god of the earth and likewise Whis's offer to become the next God of Destruction of the Seventh Universe, though the latter was mainly due to his morality making him unsuitable for it. At the same time, he shows such unwavering will and tenacity to succeed, always determined to never give up against any adversity. Gokou has also been noted several times to have a special effect on people, being capable of inspiring them to be kinder as he even caused several of his enemies to become his allies. He even convinced the God of Destruction Beerus that Earth was worth keeping around, and even caused the ruthless assassin Hit to smile in genuine happiness.
He has shown much innocence since childhood, mainly because of spending most of his childhood on Mt. Paozu in isolation, apart from the first few years of his life with his grandfather, and spending his adolescence traveling the world to sharpen his combat skills. This lack of social experience and proper education growing up (apart from the basic education from Kame-Sennin) left him rather ignorant in many things outside of battle and had little development in emotional maturity. During his childhood, he originally had difficulty telling the difference between a male and a female without physically touching them, which often got him in trouble.
Another problem stemming from his lack of proper education, Gokou had little understanding of financial matters. As a result, he spent most of his marriage without a job, instead being supported by his prize-winnings from the Tenkaichi Budoukai and the Gyuumaoh's wealth. This limited education also was seen from his struggling in the written test for the Sixth Universe and Seventh Universe Gods of Destruction Selection Martial Arts Competition. Overall, both his children have shown better understanding of general matters as Chi-Chi ensured that the two sons had a well-educated background. While Chi-Chi later made Gokou take up a job as a farmer, Gokou is regularly shown with little interest in it, often looking for excuses to get out of work to train instead. This mostly stems from his Saiyan nature, instinctively desiring combative challenges.
Chi-Chi is Son Gokou's wife. Gokou and Chi-Chi have known each other since they were children and went on many adventures together until early adulthood. They get married after Gokou's victory in the 23rd Tenkaichi Budoukai and had two sons together: Gohan and Goten. Despite Gokou's loyalty and love to Chi-Chi, he can be quite afraid of her sometimes when she gets angry (especially when Gokou spends most of his time training rather than get a job) and she seems to the only person that Gokou is afraid of when she gets mad at him. Despite all this, Gokou loves Chi-Chi very much and admits he likes how strong-willed she is.
Gohan is Son Gokou's eldest son. The two of them have a very strong father-son bond as they both love to maintain peace in the world and protect their loved-ones and they love hanging out together and helping each other out. Despite the both of them sharing a pure and gentle heart, their interests are quite different as; Gokou loves fighting and is not very bright in situations and prefers training rather than get a job, while Gohan is mild-mannered, intelligent and very educational as he prefers to be a scholar than a fighter.
After wishing for the pure Majin-Boo to be reincarnated as a good person, Gokou has become interested meeting his reincarnated self to have a one-on-one match. At first, Gokou was uninterested in training Oob, but Dende insisted, to help him control his energy.
Zenoh is one of Gokou's greatest and most powerful allies, but also Zenoh's best friend. Despite the gods' fear in Zenoh, Gokou became friendly with him upon their first meeting at the Sixth Universe and Seventh Universe Gods of Destruction Selection Martial Arts Competition.
Freeza is Gokou's arch-nemesis. Gokou and Freeza are polar opposites; as Gokou is noble, kind, selfless and friendly while Freeza is cruel, sadistic, arrogant and narcissistic. Gokou has a huge hatred of Freeza for killing his parents, wiping out all the Saiyans (except for Vegeta and himself) and destroying his home planet. Gokou's intense disliking of Freeza turns to pure hatred when he kills his best friend Klilyn in cold blood right in front of him and vows to destroy Freeza for everything he has done. Even though they openly hate each other, they both seem to view each other as an worthy opponent as they like fighting strong people.
Cell is one of Gokou's greatest and most dangerous enemies.
Zamasu is Gokou's second archenemy after Freeza.
Gokou-Black is Goku's evil counterpart who is actually Zamasu in disguise.

After Gokuh asked Whis to train him and Vegeta tagged along because he did not want to be left behind. Ten months after battling against God of Destruction Beerus, Goku and Vegeta were training with Whis on Beerus's planet. Goku and Vegeta charged at Whis with full force, but their attacks were repeatedly blocked. After Vegeta had been knocked unconscious, Goku took the chance and challenged Whis by himself. Goku's punches and kicks were blocked as well. After Vegeta had gotten up, they tried to fight him together, but however, their training was halted by Whis because of their lack of speed - without noticing, their tops have been signed by him. Whis began to tell them what they did wrong, and they should not think about fighting and just fighting without thinking, something Beerus has not mastered. After Whis told Vegeta his flaws, he punched Goku in the side goes on to tell Goku that he is too calm during his fights and how it could be a problem in the future no matter how strong he is. Their training was noisy enough to wake up Beerus. While Beerus was walking towards them, he sneezed and accidentally shot a blast in Goku and Vegeta's direction, in which it blows up a planet near his planet. Shocked, Goku said the blast had enough power to blow him and Vegeta into bits.
Whis went on to say that Beerus was like that he is sleepy and that he destroyed the two suns they have. Confused, Goku asked if they are powerful enough to create stars, but Whis revealed that he can do-over time whenever necessary. Beerus started to become aware of Goku and Vegeta's appearance and asked Goku why he was on his planet. Goku explained to him that he could not have found his planet because he could not sense his ki. Goku went on to say that he asked Whis to take him there to train so he could get stronger. Beerus heard by Whis that Goku and Vegeta have been on his planet several times before. Goku, Vegeta, and Whis continue training, but they get interrupted by Beerus, who was eating pizza for the first time. Yogen-Gyo appeared and notified Whis to check his messages. He saw that Bulma has messaged him a while ago and called her telepathically. Bulma was furious and explained to them Freeza was revival and that she needed Goku and Vegeta to return to Earth. Goku used Teleportation with the help of Freeza's power and the Dragon Team powering up.
When they arrived, their presence brings joy to everyone, including Freeza. Goku was told by Piccolo that Freeza had been revived by the Dragon Balls six months prior. Goku told Freeza that it was his fault for going to Earth and getting killed by Trunks. After Freeza explained his torturous years, he transformed into his final form. His power surprised Goku, which made him want Freeza as his sparring partner. Goku then battled Freeza in his base, having the advantage in their fight. During their fight, Vegeta got angry that Goku was not taking turns fighting against Freeza so he intervened and attacked Goku. However, Freeza wanted to fight Goku instead. Goku was displeased and wanted him and Freeza to not hold back their power, so they both transform: Goku turns Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan and Freeza turns into Golden Freeza. Golden Freeza has more power than Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Goku. Golden Freeza has the upper advantage until Goku and Vegeta figured out his weakness which later makes Goku have the advantage in power. Golden Freeza's power has been depleted enough for Goku to take over and have Freeza on all fours. While having his guard down, Goku gets penetrated by a beam from Sorbet's Bad Ring Laser, who was signaled by Freeza.
Goku was in pain, nearly dying from the beam. Freeza took advantage of the situation and tortured Goku. While Freeza wanted a different way to kill Goku, he called for Vegeta to do it. Vegeta declined to kill Goku even after being offered supreme commander in the Freeza Army. Goku was given a senzu by Kuririn with the request of Vegeta, who challenged Freeza in his Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan form. The Earth was destroyed by Freeza when Vegeta took too long to kill Freeza, but Goku was saved by Whis, along with Beerus, Gohan, Piccolo, Jaco, Bulma, Tenshinhan, Kulilin, and Kame-Sennin. Goku realized that he has done wrong and wants to do it over and kill Freeza. Goku was reminded by Whis that he can redo time and so he did. Before Freeza destroyed the Earth again, Goku charged him in Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan and shot a Kamehameha at him. After Freeza was dead again, Vegeta was mad that Goku took his kill. After discussing with Beerus and Whis, Goku walked toward Vegeta and asked if they should team up next time like Whis said, but declined and Goku also agreed.
God of Destruction Beerus Arc
Some point later, while plowing the field, Goten appears with lunch for Gokou, and Gokou tells Goten to work the tractor while he eats. After he was finished eating, Gokou starts training in his Super Saiyan form. While training, Goten fell off the mountainside, so Gokou quickly noticed and used Shunkanidou to save the tractor and Goten. He explained to Goten that he needed to watch what he was doing so that he could train in case a stronger foe than Majin-Boo appeared again. Later that day, Goten told Gokou that he and Trunks got Videl a wedding gift, when Satan arrived to offer Gokou 100 million zenny, as a way to say thank you for helping him defeat Boo. Gokou initially declined, not understanding how large a sum 100 million zenny actually was and told him to give it to Vegeta, but Satan said that the Brief's family were richer than he was. Goten reminded Gokou that if he gave Chi-Chi all of the money, he could easily quit his job and go train with the Kaioh. At Satan and Goten's recommendation, Gokou accepted the offer, and after talking with Chi-Chi, teleported to the Kaioh's planet to start his training.
When Gokou arrived on the Kaioh's planet, he caused the Kaioh to crash into his house. After the crash, the Kaioh made Gokou food and started to rebuild his house. While the Kaioh was not enjoying rebuilding his house, Gokou explained to Kaioh that he was there to train ten times the gravity of Earth. The Kaioh said to Gokou that he was an important figure and the most important of all Kaioh, but Gokou said he saw the Kaioh as a friend. Gokou then changed clothes to a blue and white tracksuit and started his training.
While training, Gokou heard his name in a conversation between the Kaioh, Roh-Kaiohshin, and Kibito Kaiohshin to keep Gokou away from Hakaishin Beerus. Gokou scared Kaioh and got paint all over him. To distract Goku from the conversation, Kaioh brought up what Gokou did, teleporting Cell to his planet, blowing it into bits, as a result causing Kaioh's death. After being successfully distracted by their conversation, Gokou continued his training pushing tons of weights. Gokou suddenly remembered that he was missing Bulma's birthday party and got scared of what she might do. Gokou started to notice that Kaioh was acting strange and wondered why, but Kaioh kept it to himself.
Kaioh asked Goku to go to Bulma's party or he might lose friends, but Goku refused to go and trained more. Goku fired a Kamehameha on Kaioh's planet, causing his house to fall apart again. With Kaioh frustrated, he slipped the name Beerus and sparked Goku's interest. Kaioh started to explain to Goku Beerus's role in the universe, keeping balance in the universe. This interested Goku even more, which made Goku want to meet Beerus. Kaioh sensed Beerus's energy approaching and encouraged Goku to not do anything reckless, and also told him to hide in his house. Beerus arrived on Kaioh's planet, which strikes fear into Kaioh.
Goku, who stayed hidden with Gregory in the Kaioh's house, was noticed when Beerus needed to speak with him. Beerus asked Goku if he ever heard of the name Super Saiyan God, but Goku denied. Beerus was disappointed and asked if he was the one who defeated Freeza, so Goku claimed that he did with the power of a Super Saiyan. Goku was examined by Beerus and said that he could not have beaten him unless he transformed. Goku was curious about Beerus's power and asked to have a battle with him, and Beerus accepted.
Goku immediately transformed into Super Saiyan as soon as he was ready. He charged Beerus, but he shows no effort towards Goku. Goku quickly bored Beerus, making him want to leave. Goku turned Super Saiyan 2, which surprised Beerus that Goku managed to surpass his limits. They both continued to fight, but Beerus constantly dodged Goku's punches and kicks. Goku wanted to pause the battle for a moment to ask Beerus if he could fight back instead of dodging. Beerus agreed and said that he will attack back if Goku managed to show more of his power. Even after agreeing, Beerus dodged his attacks. Goku continued to throw punches, putting holes through Kaioh's planet.
Goku transformed into his final transformation, Super Saiyan 3. Goku charged with full force, managing to get punches on Beerus. He fired a Kamehameha towards Beerus but was blocked by his finger. Goku began to feel intimidated by Beerus and attacked him once again. He noticed his hits were not landing and that Beerus let him get hits on him. A final Kamehameha being blown, missed Beerus and went through Kaioh's planet. Beerus had enough and decided to attack Goku, flicking him on the forehead and pressed a pressure point on Goku's shoulder, making him revert to his base form. Beerus and Whis left to Earth after this, with Goku lying on the ground in agony. He remarked about the comments Beerus made about the Super Saiyan God. He still wanted to fight Beerus and suggested merging with Vegeta but still did not think it was enough. He then got up, knowing that the Earth was in danger and wanted to go back to prevent Beerus's destruction.
Goku was given a senzu by Kaio, recovering from his battle with Beerus. Goku wanted to go to Bulma's birthday party, but Kaio, Gregory, and Bubbles would not let him. Goku decided to wait, but did not know if he can do so. After the battles of the Dragon Team and Beerus, Beerus decided destroy Earth. However, Goku intervened before he did so and asked for time to summon the Super Saiyan God. Beerus gave him the time he needed to use the Dragon Balls to summon Shenron. After Goten and Trunks laid out the Dragon Balls, Goku summoned Shenron and asks him if he knew of the Super Saiyan God.
He told them how to create one, proceeding to speak the procedures required to make one before disappearing. Now knowing how to create it, Goku along with Vegeta, Goten, Trunks and Gohan attempt to channel their powers over to Goku, but they only succeed in increasing his power. Whis noted that they needed six pure-hearted Saiyans, so Videl stepped up, announcing her pregnancy. They attempted the ritual once more, this time with Videl and succeeded, transforming Goku into the Super Saiyan God.
Goku and Beerus ascended into the sky. Goku was yet to have control power and attempted a few attacks on Beerus but failed, and while he fought, he slowly came to grasp this new height of power. To measure his power, Goku charged a Kamehameha and launched it after at Beerus, who effortlessly evaded it as the blast exploded in the sea. Beerus then attacked the Saiyan, showing him the difference between them. However, Goku managed to grab Beerus's fist, demonstrating that he could catch up to the god.
Beerus complimented his power and proceeded to launch an energy ball at Goku, which Goku struggled greatly in deflecting, but managed to throw it off. Goku charged up before attacking Beerus yet again, a few failed punches followed by a successful one that aggravated Beerus. An angered Beerus attempted yet another punch but was surprised by Goku who evaded his fist, locking the god in his arm and then flicking him in the forehead, continuing to chop him in the neck. However, unlike Beerus, Goku's hits were too weak to knock the god out while Goku stated that they are even now, Beerus commenting that he did not expect him to be the type of person who would carry a chip on his shoulder. Beerus then announced that henceforth, a battle between the gods will continue.
Goku first charged at Beerus, but without Beerus knowing, Goku uses the Afterimage Technique to hit Beerus in the abdomen. The two fight on par as the sky was beginning to become absent of clouds with the sheer power of Goku gaining rapid punches to Beerus and Beerus does the same. Beerus decided to launch an energy ball at Goku in which he compressed the blast. The gods then exchanged several attacks toward each other: Goku bit Beerus's tail, Beerus smooshing Goku's face together, Goku screamed in Beerus's ear, and Beerus pulling Goku's nose with his finger nail. Goku noticed that Beerus was not using his full power against him. Before Goku could finish speaking, he was blasted several times by Beerus and was blown onto an island. While on the island, Goku was getting pounded on by Beerus until Goku head butted and punched him. Goku was launched into the air and this action was repeated until they reached space.
Goku was immobile until Beerus tried to motivate Goku to use his full power. Beerus created an atomic bomb and kicked it towards Earth. Since it was said to be unblockable, Goku decided to blast it with a one-handed Kamehameha, destroying it. Beerus then created multiple and fired them, so Goku powered up a Kamehameha to blast them all. Afterwards, without reacting quickly enough, he was impaled through his abdomen from Beerus which made him think he found the wrong warrior to fight. After Goku fall down into the ocean on Earth, he started to think that he did not know a person that strong could have existed. In the moment, his body started to heal with the power of Super Saiyan God and started to get excited. Goku launched from the ocean back to space. Goku stated to Beerus the power of Super Saiyan God was raising his power and wanted to continue the battle and see the power of Beerus.
Goku and Beerus continued to ascend in space. While rising, Goku noticed Beerus was not following from below, but he was behind him. After an attempt to chop Goku's hand, Goku caught it and they both agreed to not use any "cheap tricks." Goku and Beerus charged their ki and rushed toward each other to clash their fists. This clash leads to rifts throughout the universe, having the potential to destroy planets, stars, the universe, the gods, and themselves. Goku and Beerus continued to clash even though they were both contacted by Kibitoshin to cease battle. However, Goku and Beerus continued to charge their ki and clash on last time, after three others. The clash, however, was canceled by Goku, as he used the same amount of power and attacked at the same angle as Beerus. After Goku stated to have been testing his new techniques on Beerus, Beerus became frustrated even more. Goku left a scratch on Beerus leaving him to an Atomic Bomb attack on Goku and he returned with a Kamehameha. The collision of the blasts caused rifts throughout the universe, destroying many planets and stars, and other effects. Goku continued to surpass his limits using the Super Saiyan God's powers. After the draw of power, an explosion of light flared out.
Goku was struggling in the ki clash with Beerus. Beerus eventually nullified the energy that was being exerted out; Goku was told that he was able to do so if he used 100 percent of his power. Goku and Beerus continued exchanging blows toward each other. Goku's power had been increasing during his battle as stated by Beerus. Goku also started to use 100 percent of his power against him. When Beerus used an attack he used against Goku earlier in the battle, Goku grabbed his head and got three head-butts on him - eventually still getting blasted by Beerus's attack. Goku's Super Saiyan God form was starting to expire, due to having a time limit, but he still possessed the power. Goku eventually reverted to Super Saiyan but was still able to get hits on Beerus.
Goku and Beerus continued exchanging blows and energy blasts towards each other as they go toward Earth. Goku was struggling to keep up with Beerus even though he has the god power. As Beerus was holding his hand out, Goku charged him and punched his hand, leading them to space again. A light shined and it could be seen throughout the universe. Goku started to fade out of Super Saiyan. Beerus flicked Goku, as an end to their battle. Goku, however, as he was falling towards Earth, he did not take this as a loss and thought of his family and friends, fueling him to continue showing off his power.
Goku used his energy to create a fully-powered Kamehameha and Beerus threw an atom-like blast. The collision of these two created a Sphere of Destruction. Goku was struggling to counter Beerus, leading him to punch the energy sphere and completely destroying the blast. Goku, as a result, fell towards Earth. Vegeta caught Goku before he could hit the deck of the ship. Goku, who was in pain, tried to convince Beerus not to destroy the Earth. As Beerus was ready to destroy the planet, he fired a ki blast at Bulma's ship but missed because he fell asleep. Whis took off with Beerus but before he does, he thanked Goku for entertaining Beerus. Afterwards, Goku had a big meal. He heard the news of Gohan becoming a father and told him to give the baby plenty of food. Goten asked him how it felt becoming a god, Goku responded that he did not actually become a god and that he does not feel like it. Goku then told Vegeta that he will become the next Super Saiyan God, but Vegeta told him that he will surpass him, Beerus, and Super Saiyan God. After Goku mocked Vegeta for "My Bulmaaa", Piccolo pointed out that Goku was watching the battle because he teleported to reach there. Goku said that he could not think of anything while watching them fight.
Sometime later, Gokuh was plowing a field with a tractor when Goten brought him lunch. Gokuh wondered if school was over, but Goten said it was Sunday. Gokuh then had Goten work the tractor while he ate his food. After he finished, Gokuh he transformed into a Super Saiyan and began training. In his mind, before he could attack Boo, Gokuh noticed Goten fell on a cliff while on the tractor. Gokuh instantly grabbed Goten and the tractor. Gokuh told Goten if he did not use the tractor properly, he would not be able to train in case someone as strong as Majin-Boo appeared again. He continued saying he wished he could train on the Kaioh's planet, but Chi-Chi wanted him to make money. While Goten explained that Gyuumaoh was broke and his mother told him he should get a job like Satan, Satan appeared. Satan told Gokuh and Goten he was offering them 100,000,000 zenny for helping defeat Majin-Boo, but Gokuh was reluctant to take it because of its large quantity. However, Goten told Goku to take it because he would not have to work and Chi-Chi would allow him to go to the Kaioh's planet to train. After considering it, Gokuh accepted the money and in exchanged kept it as a secret with Satan.
On the Kaioh's planet, Gokuh was running alongside Bubbles while pulling a giant block. Goku then noticed Kaioh getting nervous. Kaioh then warned Gokuh about Hakaishin Beerus, the universe's strongest god, was heading there. Since the Kaioh mentioned he was the strongest in the universe, Gokuh wanted to fight Beerus. As the Kaioh was yelling at Gokuh, Beerus and Whis arrived on the planet and accepted Gokuh's challenge to fight him. Moments later, Gokuh transformed into Super Saiyan. Gokuh was the first to charge at Beerus but teleported behind Beerus to chop his neck, but Beerus dodged his attack. After attempting to hit Beerus several times, Gokuh transformed into Super Saiyan 2. After a few attacks, Gokuh decided to show the god his strongest, so he transformed into Super Saiyan 3, which amused Beerus.
Gokuh attacked Beerus several times, but Beerus continued to dodge his attacks, even punching a hole through the Kaioh's planet. Gokuh wanted Beerus to perform a counterattack so Beerus vanished in front of Gokuh to flick him. Beerus then wanted Gokuh to transform into Super Saiyan God, but Gokuh claimed Super Saiyan 3 was his final form. Beerus was disappointed so he vanished behind Goku and chopped his neck, causing Goku to be defeated and become unconscious. Immediately after, Beerus and Whis headed for Earth to check out the other Saiyans. After regaining consciousness, Gokuh realized he was no match for Beerus. He then mentioned Beerus commented heading to Earth and said Bulma was having her birthday party. Later, Gokuh appeared at Bulma's party before Beerus destroyed the Earth because of his confrontation with the Dragon Team because Boo did not share any pudding, and Goku asked for him to wait.
Gokuh told Beerus he would be able to find the Super Saiyan God, then he told Bulma to prepare the Dragon Balls. Gokuh summoned Shenron to ask him about the secret of the Super Saiyan God so Shenron to told them six pure-hearted Saiyans were required to work together to temporarily bring forth the Super Saiyan God. However, there were only five Saiyans present but Videl revealed her pregnancy. Then, the six gathered together and held hands to transfer their energy to Gokuh, transforming him the Super Saiyan God. Gokuh was easy to face Beerus and made him promise not to destroy the Earth if he won, and Beerus agreed but stated no one in the universe was able to defeat a Hakaishin. Gokuh first attacked Beerus but the latter caught his fist, causing a huge disruption. While Goku was saying he did not know a world like the gods existed, Beerus punched Gokuh. The two then flew into the Western Capital and continued their battle. Beerus attacked Gokuh but he blocked his attack but flipped away and attacked the god but his attacks were blocked and dodged. As they were heading toward a building, the two flew apart and flew around the building. After getting around the building, Beerus head butted Gokuh and he flew to a rocky terrain. During their clash, they eventually went into the Earth's stratosphere and managed to shockwaves throughout the universe.
Beerus was he applauded Gokuh but noticed his power was fading so he decided to throw a Beerus Ball at Gokuh. As the ball was heading toward Gokuh and the Earth, Gokuh told Beerus that the power of Super Saiyan God was telling him he scratched the surface, and he fired a Kamehameha, destroying the blast. Moments later, Beerus stated Gokuh fascinated him so he decided to hold off destroying the Earth. He informed Gokuh that he was the Hakaishin of the 7th Universe and there were 12 other universes. Before departing, he also mentioned Whis, who was present, was his master, meaning he was stronger than he was. Shortly after, Beerus returned and revealed to Gokuh he was the second strongest warrior he had fought before departing again.
Golden Freeza Arc
Sixth Universe Arc
On Beerus's planet, Goku was sparring with Vegeta. Goku charged and attacked Vegeta but he blocked it so Goku flipped over Vegeta and kicked him. However, Vegeta grabbed his leg and there him before stating the first to defeat Beerus would be him. Vegeta charged at Goku but Goku used Shunkanidou and vanished several times while Vegeta attacked him. When Goku was going to attack Vegeta from behind, Vegeta, out of anger, transformed into Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan and blasted Goku. Goku stated the match we on a consensus of not transforming but he decided to transform. While saying Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan several times, Goku bit he tongue so he asked Vegeta to do something about the name. Whis, who was spectating, appeared and suggested the name Super Saiyan Blue. Whis then mentioned the match was suppose to be a transformation prohibited match and said if they were going to disobey him, there were going to be problems. He also mentioned even though they defeated Golden Freeza, they still needed room for improvement. After Whis fixed the destruction done by Vegeta, he transformed their clothing into extremely heavy suits as punishment. As Goku and Vegeta were blaming each other for the suits, Champa and Vados appeared and the two noticed them. While Whis was told to get Beerus, who was sleeping, Goku and Vegeta spoke with Champa and commented that he looked like a fat Beerus. Vados mentioned he was the twin brother of Beerus and the Hakaishin of the 6th Universe.
When Beerus and Whis appeared, Champa mentioned he made a presence to have their usual showdown. Goku was disappointed to know it was a food showdown because he wanted to see Beerus go all-out. Champa and Beerus brought out food: Beerus presented ramen noodles and Champa presented a boiled Don Don bird egg. Champa enjoyed the ramen and asked Beerus were he received the food and mentioned Earth. Champa then commanded Vados to look for Earth in their universe. Vegeta was unaware of the 6th Universe so Whis explained there were 12 universes and the 6th and 7th Universes were like twins because the two add up to the number 13. Vados then located the Earth in the 6th Universe and mentioned the humans were extinct because of a civil war. Goku commented the Earth faced destruction several times and mentioned it was Vegeta's goal previously. Champa then challenged Beerus to a showdown for the Earth in a competition with five warriors from their universes, exciting Goku. Champa said he was searching for wish balls for decades and needed one more. If Beerus won the tournament, he would give him the six he gathered. Goku asked if he was talking about the Dragon Balls, which shocked Champa and Vados. Champa informed them the Nameccians previous found the giant balls and shaved pieces from them, known as Super Dragon Balls. Beerus found the six Dragon Balls useless because one was missing, but Goku pleaded and said Bulma could find the final one with a radar. After Goku and Vegeta accepted to participate in the tournament, Beerus accepted Champa's challenge.
The rules for the tournament were then decided. After Champa and Vados left, Goku and Vegeta took off their suits, and Goku asked Beerus about the other warriors, but Beerus did not think of it and asked for suggestions. Goku immediately chose Boo and Piccolo, but Vegeta suggested Gohan because he had the most potential of them all, but Goku said he was unable to find his dougi. Beerus then stated he decided on the final one, who was the strongest he fought, shocking Goku and Vegeta. Goku then remembered Beerus telling him he was the second strongest he fought in their first meeting. Beerus then told the two to return to Earth and tell Bulma to prepare for the final Super Dragon Ball for the tournament. Whis then escorted Vegeta and Goku back to Earth. The next day, Bulma finished the new Dragon Radar. Goku noticed nothing would show up on the radar and Piccolo wondered if the radar did not work, but Bulma stated they were on the edge of the universe so they would have to go to the center of the universe. However, Bulma was concerned about Beerus's intentions for the balls. She then contacted her sister to get ahold of Jaco and to tell him to go to Earth. Fifty minutes later, Jaco arrived on Earth. Bulma went with Jaco to Zuno to ask about how to reach the center of the universe. After they left, Goku commented the two married strong-willed wives and stated he loved it about Chichi. Vegeta informed him strong-willed women could handle Saiyan blood.
Later, Goku, along with Vegeta and Piccolo, visited Satan House and spoke with Buu and Satan. The next day in the Seishin to Toki no Heya, Goku was sparring with Vegeta. Goku asked Vegeta if he thought the 6th Universe's warriors were strong and he thought they were because after seeing them train, Champa still proposed a tournament. Moments later, Vegeta was tired of talking, so he and Goku transformed into Super Saiyan Blue and continued their training in the fixed room for three days. On the day of the competition, Goku and friends were in a cube prepared by Whis. Goku asked Videl where was Gohan and she stated he was at an important academic conference. Vegeta suddenly asked Goku who was someone in there and Whis stated it was the strongest warrior Beerus spoke of, Monaka. Goku greeted Monaka, and asked what was Ponta and he stated they were nipples and he had big nipples. During their travel, they decided to play Shiritori. After 35 minutes from Earth to Beerus's planet then two hours and ten minutes from Beerus's planet to the Nameless Planet, they arrived there. At some point, Goku punched Monaka.
As there were landing on the planet, everyone was shocked to see the size of the Super Dragon Balls. Upon landing, Goku saw Shin and noticed he was separate from Kibito. As Shin was explaining why, Goku noticed the Kaiohshin of the 6th Universe and greeted him. Whis told Goku the written test was beginning so he left to head toward the stage. After Team 7th Universe walked on the stage, they noticed the Team 6th Universe's warriors and saw one who looked like Freeza. When commenting on some of Team 6th Universe's warriors, a Saiyan approached Vegeta and Goku because he noticed they were Saiyans as well and Vegeta commented he was wearing the clothes were the style of the Saiyans before getting annexed into the Freeza Army. He then asked the Saiyan of the planet the Saiyans were assembled at and the Saiyan responded Planet Sadal, the original home planet of the Saiyans. Goku asked the Saiyan about his tail, but the Saiyan said they evolved and the tails became useless though they were still a warrior race and did not conquer planets, but they were hired to defeat criminals. As they were speaking, Vados demanded them to take their seats for the test.
After ten minutes of the test of ten basic questions, Boo was the only one to fail, meaning he was unqualified to compete in the tournament. Vegeta was shocked and wondered what to do but Goku blamed him for asking for the test and showed his test, nearly failing with 50. After a rock-paper-scissors game, Goku lost meaning he would go first, Piccolo, second, Vegeta third and Beerus chose Monaka to go last because he was the strongest. The referee then began the tournament and introduced the singer to sing the anthem of the universe. After this, the first warrior from Team 6th Universe to compete was Botamo, and Goku and Botamo went to the stage to compete. Before the referee began the match, Vados built a barrier around the stage and both Goku and Botamo bowed. Botamo rushed Goku immediately and attacked Goku. Goku dodged and blocked several of the latter's attacks before getting punched back, but he quickly recovered. Beerus asked Goku what was wrong so Goku told him he ate too much so he needed to work out. Goku then began to run around the arena at an immense speed while Botamo attempted to hit him. After concluding, Botamo charged at Goku but Goku began to overwhelm Botamo, but Botamo continued to recover and attack Goku, which alerted him.
After Botamo attacked Goku, Goku grabbed his arm and rapidly punched Botamo and kicked him across the arena. However, Botamo, again, recovered. Goku realized it did not have an effect on him so he decided to fire a Kamehameha at Botamo, but he quickly recovered. As Goku and Botamo continued to battle, Goku thought of the idea to push him down and drag him to throw him off of the stage, winning the match due to ring out. While celebrating, Goku looked an a warrior from Team 6th Universe, who had his eyes closed and arms crossed. Goku's next opponent for the tournament was Frost. After Frost arrived on the stage, he greeted Goku, which shocked him, and wished for them to give it their best. When the match began, Frost immediately charged at Goku and attacked him but Goku blocked the latter but the two began to dodge and attack each other before Goku kicked him. However, Frost's speed allowed him to fly past him and grab his leg with his tail and kicked Goku. While Goku was flying across the arena, he was attacked by Frost but vanished as Frost attempted to punch him. Goku and Frost then continued their match. After Goku delivered a heavy blow to Frost in the abdomen and kicked him.
Goku realized Frost was trying to feel his strength so he promoted him to transform into his final form. After Goku gave Frost advice, Frost transformed. Goku was surprised to see Frost's form and thought it was different from the one he knew. Frost then asked if the one he knew was able to defeat him but Goku did not want to answer so Frost believed he did not and wanted to be different than he was. After the two continued their match, Frost fired a Shockwave from the Fingertips at Goku and hit. However, Goku recovered and noticed Frost was hiding another transformation like he was before transforming into Super Saiyan. Goku encouraged Frost to transform before he ended the match as he charged him. Immediately, Frost transformed into his final form which brought memories back to Goku. After Goku and Frost powered up, Frost charged at Goku but jumped into the air to fire a blast at the Saiyan, but he swiped it away. Goku and Frost continued this before Goku grabbed his wrists and kicked him to the dome. The two then charged at each other at continued their brawl until Frost descended. As Goku charged Frost, the Freeza look-alike fire a kiai, pushing Goku back. However, Goku retaliated, pushing Frost to the outskirts of the arena. After Frost stated he would not lose, he charged at Goku and punched him but Goku blocked his attacks and then pushed his away. Frost charged at Goku again and attempted to punch him but the Saiyan evaded and chopped his neck.
Goku told Frost he was finished and told him to train to get stronger and he would fight him again. However, Frost attacked Goku, punched his wrist as the Saiyan blocked. As Goku was paralyzed, Frost kicked him into the barrier outside the stage Vados created. After Goku recovered he complimented Frost behind heading to the sidelines. Piccolo asked Goku what happened and Goku said after he was punched, he went limp. Before the next match between Piccolo and Frost began, Piccolo asked the odds of him winning and Goku bluntly said zero but told him to waste his stamina for Vegeta. After Piccolo lost against Frost, Goku was shocked at what happened. However, Jaco objected due to Frost using a needle. After Frost was disqualified due to weapons being illegal, Goku was mad he did the same trick on him. Before Vegeta's match against Frost, Beerus called Goku to the referee to reinstate him in the competition because he lost to Frost. Vegeta wanted Goku to go last because he wanted his turn but Beerus insisted Monaka was last and told the referee Goku was third.
After Vegeta beat Frost, Goku said he seemed nice turned into scumbag and Piccolo said he was turning into more like Freeza. In Vegeta's fight against Otta Magetta, Goku told Vegeta to win by ring out and to toss Magetta out of the ring. However, Vegeta was unable to lift the Metalman, even as a Super Saiyan, due to weighing over 1,000 tons stated by Beerus. After Vegeta won by ring out, Goku wondered what happened and Whis explained the Metalman are sensitive beings and Vegeta insulted him. In Vegeta's match with Cabbe, a Saiyan from the 6th Universe, he got angry because the Saiyan asked to teach him to transform into Super Saiyan. After Vegeta brutally attacked the Saiyan and threatened to kill the Saiyans on Planet Sadla, Cabbe transformed into Super Saiyan and it shocked Goku. He was further impressed when Cabba transformed after his first burst. After Vegeta won the match, Goku wondered why Vegeta went through the trouble to train the Saiyan. Piccolo explained he was the prince of Saiyans and meeting another reminded him of it. Goku wondered about him, and Piccolo said Goku's impression of Vegeta rubs him the wrong way.
During Vegeta's match with Hit, the final warrior from Team 6th Universe, Goku asked Piccolo if he saw anything, and he denied. He even wondered about Monaka but realized he could not see a thing. As the match continued, Goku asked Jaco if he could see what was happening but he said he could not because he was moving beyond superhuman speed. The patrolman continued saying he completely disappears as he moves. Goku wondered if he was teleporting but thought it would be impossible the way he was using it. After Vegeta lost, Goku told Kuririn to give him a senzu. The Galactic King wondered if he was time-skipping, a technique being able to skip a tenth of a second. The Galactic King said time manipulation was a violation of the Galactic Laws so Goku asked if they were going to arrest him but the town denied because they liked living. Before Goku's match with Hit, Goku asked Vegeta for advice, but the latter responded with "good luck." Before the match began, Goku exercised before bowing to Hit. Hit encouraged Goku to transform, but Goku revealed his form drained a lot of energy and revealed his plan to Hit. Hit thought Goku was young, but Goku said he was old. Hit revealed to Goku he was over 1000 years old, shocking Goku before he greeted Hit properly. Goku then attacked Hit, but the latter used his Time-Skip and punched Goku. Hit suggested for Goku to surrender, but the latter stated he figured out how his technique worked.
Goku attacked Hit, but the latter used Time-Skip to punch Goku. However, Goku quickly recovered and charged at Hit, but he vanished, but Goku managed to scrape Hit when he reappeared. As Hit removed the scratch from his face, he thought it was a fluke. Goku then charged at Hit and kicked him as Hit vanished but Hit was hit with an uppercut by Goku as he reappeared behind Goku. Hit wondered how Goku was able to do it, so Goku explained he predicted his movements after a tenth of a second. Hit wondered why Goku revealed his plan, so Goku said his hands were in his pockets because he used his coat to cover his legs to hide his movements to his opponent. The Saiyan then transformed into Super Saiyan.
After Hit changed his fighting stance, he vanished and attacked Goku, but the two continued to block, dodge, and vanish in succession to each other's attacks. After the two departed and landed on the arena, Goku transformed into Super Saiyan God, surprising Hit. Hit was impressed by the number of forms Goku had but said his victory was assured. Goku then attacked Hit, but he dodged. However, Goku managed to punch Hit. After he was hit, Hit wondered if he stopped him for less than a tenth of a second. Goku then attempted to kick Hit but he dodged but Goku vanished behind the latter and punched him. While Whis and Beerus were discussing why Goku's and Vegeta's power, Hit was shocked before he was hit by Goku's ki blast. Hit took the blast and he then realized Goku was on a different level before he unleashed his full power. Hit revealed he had not used his full power in a long time and he only had one time to use his Time-Skip for a full tenth of a second before returning his hands in his pockets. After Goku charged at Hit, Hit used his Time-Skip and stopped Goku, but the Saiyan transformed into Super Saiyan Blue before kicking the assassin into the air. Goku fired a Kamehameha at Hit, but the latter managed to dodge it, destroying the dome around the arena. After Vados fixed the dome, Hit descended to the arena. Hit was grateful to have Goku as his opponent. Goku then stated Hit was an assassin, being so, he had killer techniques and was stronger. He then said he wanted to fight Hit again before jumping out of the ring, resulting in a ring out.
Beerus asked Goku if he knew what he did, and Goku responded saying he did not want to finish and wanted Monaka to show his stuff and to see see the universe's strongest. Beerus then screamed into anger and Goku asked why he was getting riled up. Before the final match began, Vegeta asked Goku what happened because he had the win. Goku said he did if he saved his Blue power and he could have beaten Cabbe as a Super Saiyan. After Monaka's victory against Hit due to ring-out, Goku was excited. When the Zenoh appeared, Vegeta asked what it was and Whis explained he was the king of all 12 universes, shocking Goku, Vegeta, and Piccolo. When Zenoh mentioned having another tournament with every universe, Goku got excited and shook hands with the king to seal the deal. After Zenoh left, Beerus, who was afraid of Zenoh, told Goku he had the power to annihilate a universe in an instant, shocking Goku. Afterwards, Goku thanked the Galactic King for helping him with Hit's Time-Skip but accidentally grabbed his weewee. He then spoke with Hit before the final Super Dragon Ball was found with Bulma's new radar, which was the Nameless Planet. After Beerus's wish was granted by Super Shenron, before reaching Earth, Goku wanted to have a sparring match with Monaka, but Beerus continuously denied, saying he was the universe's treasured warrior.
"Future" Trunks Arc
In the backyard of his house, Goku, Chi-Chi, Goten, and Piccolo were in the field admiring Goku's crops. Goku wanted to compete while harvesting the crops with Goten and Piccolo, similar to what he did with Kulilin while training under Kame-Sennin However, Goten had to study for his test the next week. While harvesting the crops with Piccolo, Kulilin arrived and mentioned to Chi-Chi Vegeta was on Beerus's Planet training. Goku heard this and instantly transported there when Vegeta transformed into Super Saiyan Blue. Upon arriving, Goku hit heads with Vegeta. Beerus suddenly appeared and requested for his present so Goku gave him the lettuce he had.
Later, they were eating the miso butter ramen Vegeta brought to Beerus's Planet. While eating, Goku commented he would give the Zenoh lettuce when they next meet, and Beerus became nervous when he name was mentioned. Goku recalled when Beerus was freaking out when the Zenoh appeared at the tournament. Whis explained Zenoh was the most important person in the universe, having no one above him, shocking Goku and Vegeta. Goku wondered if he was the strongest, so Beerus stated he did not fight, but he was the strongest by an insane margin. Whis continued mention what Beerus said at the tournament about Zenoh having the ability to wipe out all of the existence in the blink of an eye and it included evil-doers, planets, galaxies, and universes. Vegeta questioned if worlds were destroyed before by him, so Whis explained he wiped out six of the 18 universes because they offended him slightly. Goku then began to get excited for the tournament and wondered what people the universes had.
At Capsule Corporation, Goku was sparring with Vegeta. After their ramen was done, Whis asked Goku and Vegeta to have a break. While eating ramen, Whis complimented Goku's and Vegeta's ability to completely master control of their ki when fighting Hit. While on the topic of ki, Goku said he did not sense powerful ki from the Zenoh and wondered why Beerus was scared of him. Whis stated Zenoh had the highest authority and answered to no one. He continued after Vegeta asked if he was strong saying he could annihilate existence in an instant and there were once 18 universes, but he annihilated six of them because he was slightly agitated. Goku was then furious with Beerus for eating his gyoza. After Beerus asked what to do with chili oil, Goku explained what to do with it. Afterwards, Goku and Vegeta began sparring again with Beerus and Whis watching them. Beerus commented that Goku and Vegeta would not become a God of Destruction, but Goku expressed his disinterest in the position. When Goku was speaking to Beerus during his match, Vegeta punched him in Beerus's direction in frustration for looking at him during their match. As Goku was heading towards Beerus, Beerus attacked him because he insulted his work. After Goku recovered from the pond, a time machine appeared and Trunks went to see who was in there and it was Trunks from the future. Bulma then told Goku to go get a senzu.
At Karin's Tower, Goku thanked Karin for the Senzu and was prepared to leave, but Yajirove wanted Goku to stay. However, Goku declined because he was in a rush. Goku promised he would return gifts later, but when Yajirove suggested pizza, Goku was fine with a pizza party. Before leaving via Shunkan Idou, Goku asked Karin if playing twister was fun, and he responded saying it was before it was made to play with someone of the opposite sex. Upon arriving at Capsule Corporation's gazebo, Goku tossed a Senzu at Vegeta to give to Trunks. After Trunks recovered, Trunks attacked Goku upon seeing him, but Goku caught his fist. Goku wondered what Trunks was doing and this made Trunks realize Goku was alive but thought he died when Cell self-destructed. After Trunks apologized to Goku for attacking him, Goku wondered if Majin-Boo did something, but Trunks mentioned he was able to defeat Babidi and Dabra, even receiving the Kaiohshin's assistance, preventing Boo from appearing. Trunks explained, due to Vegeta's demand, the person who caused destruction was someone who looked like Goku, known as Goku Black. After Goku commented on his likeness of the name, he wanted to beat him but Trunks said he could not go back because he had enough fuel for a one-way trip.
After Bulma told Goku and Vegeta that Trunks was not like them, Goku was okay with Trunks not going into the future if he could not but commented he and Vegeta were going. Goku then asked Trunks the type of fuel for the time machine, and he responded saying Blue No. 15 Electro-Fluid, fuel Bulma was developing. After promising to Bulma to return if something happened, Trunks was unsure because he could not reach his power, so Goku asked Trunks to spar with him. In the area, After Trunks transformed into Super Saiyan 2, surprising Goku, who then transformed into Super Saiyan 2. Goku then began to attack Trunks, and then the two fought on equal terms. After Trunks tried to attack Goku with his sword, Goku used his finger to block his attacks but then separated. Goku complimented Trunks power, he transformed into Super Saiyan 3. After powering up, Trunks tried to attack Goku, but he transformed into Super Saiyan God and kicked the latter in the neck from behind, knocking him down. After reverting back to his base, Goku apologized to Trunks, but Trunks said he was still fodder compared to Black. Goku then asked Beerus to assist them if things went wrong but Beerus declined because he had no interest in the future Earth and time travel was a serious offense. After Whis asked Trunks what happened to the Kaiohshin of his time, Trunks stated he died during their battle with Darbura, shocking Beerus. Goku wondered if Beerus was fond of the Shin, but Whis explained the Kaiohshin and the God of Destruction were connected, meaning the God of Destruction in Trunks's future was most likely dead, shocking everyone.
In Capsule Corporation, Trunks explained what happened in his future with Babidi and His Followers and Black. Whis stated only a few knew about the connection between the Kaiohshin and Gods of Destruction, meaning he was on par with the gods. He even stated that because he was able to arrive in a time without the God of Destruction and Goku and his friends do not exist, meant he had the ability to travel through worlds. After Beerus asked if he was sure the God of Destruction was dead in his future, Goku introduced Trunks to Beerus and Whis because he was unaware of who they were and mentioned they were stronger than they were. Bulma appeared and demanded the discussion to end because they still needed to gather enough energy for the time machine.
Later that day at CC Restaurant, Goku was there eating with others for dinner. Goku asked Trunks if there were comrades left in the future, but the latter responded saying he was the last warrior because Black killed the remaining gods. Beerus commented nothing was preventing Black from doing the same in their time like he did in the future, so Whis suggested asking the Kaiohshin. Later that night, Goku was playing a racing video game with Adult Trunks, Young Trunks, Vegeta, Beerus, and the Pilaf Gang and came in fourth place. After Beerus left, Goku expressed his exhaustion and he then noticed Trunks and suggested he should go to bed early. After Vegeta asked if activities like video games amused him and Trunks responded saying that it has been a while since he could sit around without a care in the world, Goku told Trunks not to worry because he and Vegeta stated they will defeat Black and his future would return to peace. Trunks then asked to join in the fight because he wanted to save his future with his hands and Goku and Vegeta agreed.
The next morning Goku was at Capsule Corporation meditating over a pond. While meditating, Goku noticed Shin appeared. Beerus asked Shin if he had noticed any evil Kaiohshin, so Shin suspected Kibito because of his discriminatory remarks against humans. Goku was unsure Kibito was the identity of Goku Black because Kibito did not look him, but Beerus suggested he could be transforming. Whis then received a call from Daishinkan and called because the Zenoh wanted to speak with Goku. Goku did not want to go because he was busy and it would take two days for Whis to reach the Zenoh. However, Shin volunteered to take them there with the use of Kai-Kai. Beerus wanted Whis to go along but he did not want to go. Beerus told Goku to be on his best behavior and not to mention anything about Goku Black. Beerus also complained about Goku's clothing but Whis said he would apologize for it. Then, Beerus told Shin to die not matter what happened. Once they arrived at the Zenoh's Palace, Daishinkan was waiting for them and greeted them. Shin tried to force Goku to bow before Daishinkan, but he greeted him.
Goku gave Daishinkan a proper greeting due to Shin's requests and Whis apologized for his appearance, but Daishinkan told them not to worry because it was as formal he could dress. Goku agreed to Daishinkan remark, then Daishinkan escorted them to see Daishinkan. While walking toward the Zenoh's room, Goku commented he thought Daishinkan was strong, so Whis said, as far as he knew, he was the strongest in that world, shocking Goku but getting him excited. Whis warned Goku not to ask him to fight and told him he could not hold a candle to him. Goku wanted to tell Daishinkan about the Black, but Whis said the Angels have to remain neutral. He told Goku not tell Daishinkan of Black if he informed the Zenoh, the universe would be erased.
In Zenoh's throne room, Zenoh thanked Goku for going and he told Goku he wanted a friend and asked him to be his friend. Goku wondered what they would do once they were friends so the Zenoh told him they would play. Goku questioned if that was all he asked him there for, so the Zenoh asked if it was bad, but Shin intervened and told him not. However, Zenoh did not want to hear Shin and told him to hush, causing Shin to faint. Zenoh then asked Goku what he should call him so Goku told him to just call him Goku. After Zenoh requested for a name, Goku gave him the name Zenny. Goku asked if he asked if he called him about the universal tournament, but Zenoh wanted to talk about it later and wanted to play. However, Goku apologized and told him he was busy and asked him to wait. This made his attendants furious and attempted to attack him, but Zenoh told them to silence or he would annihilate them.
Goku promised to play once he was finished what he was doing and even said he would bring a better friend, so the two shook hands. Goku commented how the palace looked boring and told him to visit Earth so Zenoh gave him a button to summon him whenever. Goku then left the palace and carried Shin. Above Earth, Beerus wondered what happened, so Goku stated Zenny was a great guy, confusing Beerus hearing Zenny. On Earth at Capsule Corporation, after Beerus's disbelief for giving Zenoh a nickname, Whis asked Goku if he thought of a friend to take to the Zenoh, but Goku was unsure, asking Whis if he knew of anyone. Shin was in fear but Goku said he would find someone, even asking Beerus. After Whis decided to put the situation behind them and asked Beerus if they were going to further investigate Goku Black. Shin asked Goku who was, so he explained the situation to Shin, and while explaining, Bulma appeared. Shin was disappointed he died in Trunks's future, but Goku said Beerus was looking for the culprit so it would not happen in their time. Shin then realized he gave Beerus Kibito's name because he said he thought he was suspicious. Bulma suddenly appeared and wondered where they went because they had guests. Vegeta, Roh-Kaiohshin, Kibito, and Trunks were then called over by Bulma. Kibito told Shin Zuno contacted the Kaiohshin Realm and said Zamasu asked about the Super Dragon Balls, Goku, and if it were possible to switch the bodies of a god and human, shocking everyone. Goku was shocked to hear a Kaioh switched bodies with him.
Trunks revealed Black was wearing one Potara on his ear so it was speculated the Kaiohshin of the 10th Universe's life was in danger. Goku wanted to go with Beerus and Whis to confront Zamasu, but Whis denied because Zamasu wanted his body. After Beerus and Whis departed, Goku, Vegeta, Bulma, and Trunks went inside Capsule Corporation and was informed by Pilaf, he and the other collected enough fluid for the time machine. Goku was ready to head to the future but Bulma asked if they should wait for Beerus, but Goku said to get it over with. Moments later, Goku brought senzu along to the future with Vegeta, and Trunks. Upon landing in the future, Goku fell out of the time machine feeling queasy. Suddenly, they sensed Black's ki moving because he figured they were there. After Trunks put the time machine back into a capsule, he noticed and black cat and followed the cat to Mye. Goku gave Trunks a Senzu so he could heal Mye. As Trunks was kissing Mye with the Senzu, Goku was shocked to see Trunks putting his mouth on hers and Vegeta wondered if Goku kissed Chi-Chi because they were married but Goku denied and did not think being married had to do anything with kissing. After she recovered, Trunks explained to Mye he returned to the future to defeat Black with Goku and Vegeta, his father from 17 years in the past. Later, Goku and Vegeta left to confront Black while Trunks protected Mye and the time machine due to Vegeta's demand. When they first caught sight of Black, Vegeta told Goku to let him fight first because beating someone who looked like him would be a thrill.
Goku revealed Black's identity and said he used the Dragon Balls to switch bodies with him. He also said there should him in Zamasu's body, but Black mentioned he killed him immediately after. Black asked how the two were able to be there and the whereabouts of Trunks but Vegeta did not want to answer his questions so he transformed into Super Saiyan and attacked Black. Goku said they did not decide on who would go first but Vegeta insisted because seeing his face. Goku agreed because he could not fight someone with the same face as his. Black then transformed into Super Saiyan and the two continued their battle. As Vegeta was beating Black as a Super Saiyan Blue, Goku was uneasy seeing someone with the same appearance get beaten. As Vegeta was fighting Black, Trunks and Mai appeared at Goku's location and Trunks said he had a bad feeling about Black because his Super Saiyan had gotten stronger so he wanted to finish off Black as fast as they could. Goku then told Vegeta to forget about having him get a turn and told him to hurry, but Vegeta said he did not intend on him having a turn. Vegeta then fired a Final Flash at Black but he was moved out of the way. Black was then healed by Zamasu and said he need him because the 0 Humans Plan required them both.
Universe Survival Arc
After the battle with Zamasu, Goku continued his job of farming. After returning to his field after delivering food, Goku was approached by bandits who intended to steal the Saiyan's air truck made by Bulma to make his work easier. The bandits attacked the Saiyan, but Goku easily defeated them. However, after one of them ran away, Goku realized he was scratched by a bullet due to not training. After taking the bandits to the police and receiving pay, Goku contacted Whis with the communicator so he could train, but the latter did not respond. While waiting in the Capsule Corp. lobby, Whis responded, and Goku asked Whis to train him in exchange for daifuku and wanted to with Vegeta. However, Vegeta was already training with Whis but was returning to Earth because it was time for a birth. Goku was then approached by Bulma who was pregnant, thought to have eaten too much by Goku. An hour later, Whis and Vegeta returned to Earth, and Goku questioned why he was leaving, so Vegeta pointed out Bulma was about to give birth. Goku did not see a problem, revealing he was not aware of Gohan's and Goten's births. Goku and Whis then left for Beerus's Planet to train.
On Beerus's Planet, Goku was eating daifuku with Whis, Beerus, and Yogen-Gyo. After they finished, Goku wanted an advanced lesson from Whis, but Whis wanted Goku to have consistent training to get stronger. Beerus was full and was going to sleep, but Goku wanted to ask Zenoh about the tournament to see what universe was the strongest, but Beerus and Whis were hesitant because of Zenoh's unpredictability. However, Goku used the button to teleport himself to Zenoh's Palace.
Peaceful World Arc
Ten years after the defeat of the pure Majin Boo, Goku was training with Goten when Bulma and Vegeta appeared. Goku said the two saw each other five years prior after Bulma said he would not have visited them and he had to train. Goku then insulted Bulma by saying she was older, so Bulma got angry and said people still thought she was beautiful and even called Saiyans monsters. After Vegeta explained to Bulma that Saiyans do not age fast, he asked Goku if he was going to enter the Tenkaichi Budoukai, and Goku said he was and wanted Vegeta to enter also because an amazing fighter from Earth would be there. Moments later after Trunks arrived, Pan returned after traveling the entire Earth by the Sky Dance Technique. Pan said she was going to participate in the tournament, but Bulma was concerned due to there not being a Junior Division, but Goku said she would learn from it and she was the most diligent of them all.
The next day at the 28th Tenkaichi Budoukai, Goku and the others went to Satan's room after qualifying to notify the champion. Satan was nervous hearing this, but Goku told the champion they would let him win. He then said there could someone who could win besides Boo and them, but Satan doubted that. Sometime later on the stage, Vegeta told Goku to tell him who the fighter was, but Goku then asked Boo to manipulate the drawing for him, so he could fight against him at 100% strength. When Goku's name was called to choose his placing on the bracket, Goku looked at the bracket to see an open bracket with placing numbers three and four. As he walked towards the announcer to pull a ball from the box, Goku told Boo to make him number three. After telling Boo to place Kirano as number six, Goku told Boo to place a young child, known as Oob, as number four. Vegeta was confused so Goku explained to Vegeta that he made a plea for Boo to be reincarnated as a good person to spar with him and Enma heard him. He also explained his name was similar to Boo's.
After Pan defeated Mo Kekko in the first match of the tournament, Goku was greeted Oob before their match. When the match began, Oob was tense, so Goku began to insult the young fighter. The Saiyan then kicked Oob, causing the latter to get angry due to his insults and retaliated. After several attacks between the two, Oob unleashed a powerful yell, but after getting hit, Goku flew into the air. Goku then descended and realized Oob was unable to fly. He then apologized for the insults but said he did because he wanted to see how strong he was. Goku was impressed with his strength that he told Oob he was going to his island to train. However, Oob said he was unable to because his family was poor and he went there for the money. Goku, however, said he would get money from Satan because he had loads for being a hero. Goku then flew to Chi-Chi and the others in the building and told them he was going to train Oob, but he would visit. After Goku returned, Oob got on his back to head towards his village. After departing, Oob and Goku were excited to meet stronger people and to get stronger. Goku called for Kintoun and dropped Oob on the cloud. Goku then told Oob to think of where to go, so Oob thought to head to his village, causing Kinotun to fly him there. As he flew behind Oob, Goku smiled.
