Overview[edit]

The incarnation of Son Goku appearing in Dragon Ball GT. The Pilaf Gang, using the Black Star Dragon Balls, accidentally wishes for Goku to return to when he was a child, thus returning to the prime of his youth. The use of these Dragon Balls, however, would destroy the planet in a year and were scattered through the galaxy, making Goku, his grandchild Pan, and Trunks (not to be confused with Future Trunks) to step into the grand tour to recover them. Goku in this iteration has a tail, so as to better control his Saiyan energy during Super Saiyan 3, as his young body is very frail and struggles to do so naturally. He attained Super Saiyan 4 (the strongest Super Saiyan form in GT) on the resurrected Planet Tuffle after absorbing Blutz Waves produced by the light reflected from Earth. He also wields the Power Pole (**Nyoibo** in Japanese dub), a magic pole that Goku was given by his Grandfather, Son Gohan. It has the ability to extend to great lengths, perhaps even indefinitely, and was one of the most important tools in Goku's arsenal in his younger years.

The Dragon Ball GT version of Goku joins Dragon Ball Fighterz as a DLC character. Here, he operates as a speedy character with a plethora of movement options, including his Reverse Kamehameha, which can be aimed.

Strengths/Weaknesses[edit]

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Smallest hurtbox in the entire game. He's shorter than Gotenks.
  • Levels 1 and 3 are enhanced if one of his allies goes down.
  • Incredible mobility with reverse Kamehameha.
  • Has access to insane mixups with Ultra Spirit Bomb oki.
  • Damage with meter is unrivaled by most of the cast.
  • Power Pole has incredible range, and is good for counter-pokes. It also does not have a hurtbox.
  • Has 3 lows (2L, 2M, 2S).
  • His Assist is amazing at catching aerial opponents and even allows for midscreen snapback pressure/mixups. It also has a surprising amount of hitstun for a beam assist, allowing for certain followups to connect much more easily.
  • Very small and very fast which makes it hard for his opponent to ascertain what he is actually doing.
  • Best win animation, never skip it.
  • Very short-ranged normals.
  • No Launcher Air 2H.
  • Lack of Ki blasts, along with the startup of Power Pole attacks gives him a weak long-range game. This makes his neutral a little troublesome, alongside his tiny limbs, however other assists + his own beams can circumvent this issue somewhat.
  • Not canon



Normals[edit]

5L[edit]

DBFZ GTGoku 5LLL.png
YEET
Version Damage Guard Smash Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
5L 400 All - 6 - - -3
  • Has a different knockback angle that allows it to easily connect to 5LL on air hit
  • Pushes Goku forward a bit giving it a misleading amount of range.

GT Goku's 5L is comparable to Bardock's 5L in both range and general usefulness. It's a staple in grounded assist combos, leading to an easily loopable sequence with assists.

5LL 180*4 All - 8 - - -4
  • All hits easily connect against airborne opponents, even when 5L connects beforehand
  • Pushes Goku forward a great deal
  • Due to fast startup for a medium and multiple hits, it will most likely win in clashes

Another great tool for GT Goku, also really good in blockstrings for the amount of time it locks down the opponent.

5LLL 1000 Throw U3+ - - - -
  • Switches sides on hit.
  • Cancelling into this from a blocked 5LL always leaves the opponent in too much blockstun for the throw to work.

Using an assist like Trunks and delaying the cancel from 5LL can give GT Goku an easy and effective tick throw.

  • Only hit once he touches the ground
  • Can slightly aim with GG4.png and GG6.png

Slightly faster than actually falling to the ground sometimes, so it's useful for some oki situations, or if you want to quickly fall to the ground to fake an opponent out. Not perfect, but has it's uses.

Super Ultra Spirit Bomb[edit]
Super Ultra Spirit Bomb
214H+S (Air OK)

"Thank you spirits of the universe!"
Version Damage Guard Smash Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
Ground 228*32 All UDV - - - -
Air 228*32 All UDV - - - -
  • Cost 3 Ki gauges
  • Minimum damage: 59*32
  • Similar to Broly HS Meteor: short recovery, can be solo combo'd into, has a wide variety of followups, doesn't trigger super scaling, disappears if Goku gets hit
  • Without followups, causes hard knockdown
  • Unlike Base Goku's Spirit Bomb, it doesn't give a huge burst of damage at the end of the attack.

Similar to Base Goku, Goku teleports high up onto the screen, charges a Spirit Bomb, and throws it at the opponent. This is different from Base Goku's in that you can combo into it solo very easily, and that you can combo afterwards as well, with scaling not being affected like it might for some other supers where you can combo afterwards. With the right amount of meter, this means that GT Goku can combo two level threes in one combo (214HS and 214LM respectively) and still end with hard knockdown.
