DEATH BATTLE Wiki

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

Son Goku (born Kakarot) is the main protagonist of the Dragon Ball series. He appeared in the 25th episode and Season 1 Finale of Death Battle, Goku VS Superman, as well as the rematch in the 50th episode, where he fought against Superman from DC Comics.

History

Born from a low-class warrior named Bardock on Planet Vegeta, Kakarot was a member of the war-like alien race known as the Saiyans. Shortly after being born, he narrowly escaped the extinction of his entire race as an infant when he was sent from a space pod to Earth with the mission to wipe out the inhabitants and conquer the planet. A kind old man named Gohan soon found him and took in the young Kakarot, renaming him as "Son Goku". He was quite a vicious child until he hit his head after falling in a ravine, giving him amnesia and erasing his natural-born Saiyan bloodlust. As Goku grew, he also developed a love for fighting and adventure, traveling the world in frequent search of the legendary wish-granting Dragon Balls, as well as to train and fight against strong opponents. Trained by legendary masters and god-like beings, Goku became Earth's protector against all that come its way, be it aliens, androids, mystical entities, gods, or even his own race. To this day, he still trains hard and strives to be the greatest warrior possible, while at the same time using his amazing strength and skills to uphold peace.
