How Strong is Goku and Who Can Beat Him?

Goku is so strong that he can lift boulders and cars without breaking a sweat. He is so strong that his power levels are measured in trillion and beyond. His power levels also increase with the different forms that he unlocks. This makes him arguably the strongest fighter in the Dragon Ball multiverse.

It is, however, believed that the likes of Beerus, Whis, Broly, and the angels can beat Goku. This possibility is quite high but has never actually happened.

A Look at Goku’s Different Forms and Power Levels

What makes Goku the fearsome protagonist of Dragon Ball is his extraordinary martial arts skills. There is also the fact that he possesses superhuman strength. Another unique thing about Goku is that he possesses the ability to transform into different states.

The beauty of his transformation doesn’t just lie in his appearance change or hair color change but also in the fact that his strength usually increases beyond the current range, thus making him even more powerful than he is.

Goku’s Different Forms and Power Levels:

  • Great Ape/Aozaru: 100
  • Super Saiyan: 150,000 to 195,000
  • Super Saiyan 2nd Grade: 1.05 billion
  • Super Saiyan 3rd Grade: 1.26 billion
  • Full Power Super Saiyan: 2.25 billion
  • Super Kaioken: 4.72 billion
  • Super Saiyan 2: 6 billion
  • Super Saiyan 3: 12 billion
  • Golden Great Ape: 5 trillion ++
  • Super Saiyan 4: 40 trillion
  • Super Saiyan God: 6 quadrillion
  • Super Saiyan Blue: 8.5 quintillion
  • Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken: 85 quintillion
  • Ultra Instinct Sign: 5 sextillion
  • Mastered Ultra-Instinct: 10 sextillion

What Is Goku’s Strongest Form?

Goku’s strongest form is the mastered ultra-instinct form. He reached this form when he absorbed the spirit bomb’s energy into his body. His hair increased in length, and his irises assumed a silver color.

Ultra instinct sharpened Goku’s physical, spiritual, and mental aspects to extreme levels. He can process information at a fast speed and reacts to situations quickly. In mastered ultra-instinct form, Goku is superior to the gods of destruction and closer to the angels. He has complete control of his energies.

Can Naruto Beat Goku?

The answer to this puzzle depends on whom you ask. A good number of people believe that Naruto can beat Goku, while a few others believe that Goku is stronger than Naruto. Those who believe that Naruto can beat Goku point to the fact that Naruto has a lot of things going on for him beyond his martial arts skills.

They include the fact that he is a brainy strategist as well as the fact that he has reliable allies such as Sasuke. This school of thought also points to his various abilities, such as safe mode, rhinnegan eyes, ninjitsu, illusions summoning, chakra, etc. They acknowledge that Goku is super strong but believe that all the different qualities listed above give Naruto an edge.

There are people who believe that the Goku v Naruto fight has already been staged through proxies in an episode of Dragon Ball. In Dragon Ball Super manga, a fight takes place between Granolah (who once defeated Goku) and Gas (who possesses Naruto-like abilities) Gas comes out on top, and it is argued that this is evidence that the writers of the Dragon Ball series themselves believe that Naruto can beat Goku.

There are some dissenting voices who believe that Goku can defeat Naruto when he is in his strongest form, known as Mastered Ultra Instinct. They argue that Naruto won’t be able to land a hit on Goku once this mode is activated. The Goku v Naruto debate is one that won’t be quickly settled anytime soon, but Naruto seems to have the upper hand.

Is Gohan Stronger than Goku?

It is widely believed that Gohan is stronger than Goku in his (Gohan’s) final form. Gohan’s final form is known as Final Beast. In this form, he exhibits incredible skills, and many argue that he is stronger than his father. It is believed that Goku has more martial arts skills and is a more experienced fighter than his son, having fought everything from gods to angels.

However, what Gohan has going for him is his insane power level. His father at the age of 12 had a power level of 16 while he, at the age of 5, already had a power level of 1000. Gohan has also fought and defeated some formidable foes over the years, such as Cell Max, Gamma 1, and 2. This is on par and even rivals his father’s achievements.

Another fact to consider is that Gohan’s final form is his natural and authentic form. He doesn’t have to expend any stamina, unlike, for instance, his father, who has to utilize precious stamina to unlock his numerous forms. This is why people say that Gohan is stronger than his father, Goku.

Is Goku Stronger than Beerus?

Goku is not stronger than Beerus. Instead, Beerus is stronger than Goku even when Goku is in his most potent form, which is the mastered ultra-instinct. Beerus is one of the gods of destruction in Dragon Ball and is the strongest of the gods as well. He forms a formidable opponent to Goku, and they fight on multiple occasions. In their first fight, he utilizes only 10% of his power to outclass Goku. Goku performs better against him in a subsequent fight but doesn’t outrightly defeat him.

Keen followers of Dragon Ball have now pointed out that Goku in his strongest form can still not defeat Beerus. According to them, Beerus has access to both ultra-instinct and ultra-ego power as well as the powers of the Halkai. It is their view that Goku will have to unlock a power level that is more powerful than ultra-instinct to defeat Beerus.

Some people insist that Goku can defeat Beerus and point to the fact that he (Goku) was able to defeat a Jiren, a personality who is supposedly stronger than Belmond, a god of destruction that is said to be stronger than Beerus. It has, however, been pointed out that even though Jiren is said to have power at the level of the gods, the gods of destruction have different skill sets and can’t be placed on the same scale.

It has also been pointed out that Beerus and another god named Quitela were able to fend off attacks from Belmond without much hassle. There’s also the fact that when the gods embarked on a sparring match, Beerus was able to evade Belmond easily, while Belmond made no concrete effort to attack him. Based on this, it is believed that the argument that Goku can beat Beerus because he defeated Jiren does not hold water.

How Fast is Goku?

Goku is faster than the speed of light. Without instant transformation, he can travel 22.321 trillion miles per hour. The speed of light is 671 miles per hour. This means that Goku is 33314 times faster than the speed of light. With his instant transformation ability, this number rises to several million.

Goku is also so fast that he can run the 100 m dash in 8.5 seconds. This is one second less than the Jamaican Usain Bolt, who has run the fastest 100 m in human history recorded at 9.58 m. Goku is also said to be faster than Flash, the DC Comics character who is the fastest man alive. Goku’s speed means that he can attack without his opponents seeing him. He can also evade assaults.

Who Can Beat Goku?

Despite how strong he is, it is believed that the likes of Whis, Broly, the Angels, Omni Kings, and the Grand Priest can beat Goku. Broly is a fellow Saiyan, and when he fought Goku, Goku had to join forces with Vegeta to be able to come out on top. It is also believed that Goku cannot beat the angels because they are incredibly strong despite their calm disposition in keeping with the fact that they are angels.

There is also the fact that they are averse to fighting, and he won’t get a chance to battle against them anytime soon. Another set of people that Goku can’t beat are Vegeta, Berus, Zeno, Merus, Morc, Fused Zamasu, and his son, Gohan.
