We are already tired of seeing Goku, the great protagonist of Dragon Ball, trying to push his limits to face new opponents as powerful as he is. But, deep down, we cannot say that the protagonist is the most powerful warrior in the entire saga created by Akira Toriyama.
In fact, many characters have punished Goku throughout the series and the Saiyan was unable to defeat them with his own hands and had to make use of other resources, such as the famous mergers, for example.
So, check out a list of 15 characters more powerful than Goku in Dragon Ball, made by the American website Screen Rant. Check it out below.
Since the beginning of the series, Gohan has already shown great potential, and what set him apart from his father was exactly that. When Supreme Lord Kaioh managed to unleash his potential, he did something that Goku did not imagine: he managed to overcome Super Saiyan 3 without even becoming Super Saiyan.
And even after running out of training between Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Super, he soon regained his fitness just before the start of the current arc of the series, which is ending.
It is also worth remembering that during Goku’s fight against Raditz, his fighting power came to be greater than that of the two Saiyans, plus Piccolo. And the main demonstration of its potential, without a doubt, was when it became Super Saiyan 2 to defeat Cell. Not to mention his intellect far superior to his father. It’s just a shame that he doesn’t have the same desire to fight and train as Goku.
Akkuman also appeared in Dragon Ball, when Goku was just a boy, and faced the young Saiyan after he defeated his friend Mummy. And yes, he was weaker than the show’s protagonist.
But he is here for a simple reason: his devil’s mortal splendor technique, which explores his opponent’s negative emotions and can make his heart explode because of it. But since Goku already had a good heart, the technique didn’t work.
If he met Goku again, things could be different, since Goku needed the rage to become the Super Saiyan for the first time, for example.
13) Arale Norimaki
Yes, the little android from the manga Dr. Slump (one of Akira Toriyama’s works) has already shown that it can be more powerful than Goku. In episode 69 of Dragon Ball Super, she was able to divide the planet in half and defeated Vegeta in a comical way.
She even launched a blast of energy similar to a Kamehameha. And Goku himself tells Bulma and Mr Satan that he doesn’t know if he is capable of defeating her.
Hit is a more than 1,000-year-old alien who has challenged Goku on two occasions, winning on one and drawing the other. And the Universe 6 fighter has a very peculiar technique up his sleeve: the so-called Jump in Time, which allows him to jump 0.1 second in the future, which is already enough to be able to dodge enemy attacks.
And during one of his fights with Goku, Hit manages to perfect the technique and even jumps up to half a second in the future.
11) Android 17
Androids 17 and 18 were created in Dragon Ball Z just in order to assassinate Goku. And after the protagonist lost his fight against Android 19 due to his heart disease (and spent his energy on a robot that absorbed energy), it is revealed that Vegeta awoke the Super Saiyan and became stronger than Goku. But even so, he was defeated by 18, who is the weakest of the pair.
And for the Tournament of Power, Goku didn’t hesitate to call 17, as he knew he would be of great help. The two had a quick duel, where 17 managed to match the protagonist’s Super Blue Saiyan.
Aniraza, who recently appeared in Dragon Ball Super, has a power that is impossible to calculate. He is a fusion of the Koitsukai, Panchia, Bollerator and Paparoni fighters. And despite making a single appearance in the series, it left a great impression. Alone, he managed to face Goku and Vegeta with the Blue Super Saiyan, Gohan, Freeza and the two androids.
All also for his one of the greatest characters ever seen in the saga, alongside the Oozaru and Slug. In addition, it also has an almost infinite amount of energy.
Akira Toriyama, creator of the series, never gave many clues to the fighting powers of mergers. So, it is difficult to know the exact power of Gogeta, the fusion of the Metamoru dance of Goku and Vegeta. But because of his fight against Janemba, in one of the films in the series, and Omega Shenron in Dragon Ball GT, it goes without saying that he is stronger than Goku.
For example, even with Super Saiyan 3, Goku was unable to beat Janemba and needed Vegeta’s help. And in the case of Omega Shenron, neither Super Saiyan 4 came forward and the hero had to do the same.
Dragon Ball Super recently introduced two saiyans: Kale and Caulifla, from Universe 6. And to defeat Goku, they use the fusion of Potara’s Earrings during the Tournament of Power, becoming the warrior Kafla, who in terms of raw power, becomes stronger than Goku.
All because Kale has a transformation similar to Broly and Caulifla is able to transform into Super Saiyan 2.
Like Gogeta, Vegito is another fusion of Goku and Vegeta, but made from Potara’s Earrings. There are those who think that Vegito is even stronger than Gogeta, because in the fusion by the metamoru dance, the two parties must have similar powers. Not with the earrings, no, which allows Goku to use his strength completely.
And only in his basic form, he managed to fight head to head with Majin Buu, after absorbing Gohan. And he was also able to stop Zamasu / Goku Black in Dragon Ball Super, something Goku, alone, was unable to do.
6) Zamasu / Goku Black
And speaking of Zamasu / Goku Black, he is also more of a stronger character than Goku within the saga. Zamasu took Goku’s body in another timeline of the series, and with the combination of his powers, they became powerful enemies.
In his first duel with the enemy, Goku was unable to defeat him with the Super Saiyan, while Zamasu / Goku Black continued with his base form.
Toppo is the leader of the Pride Squad and also one of the candidates to be the new God of Destruction of Universe 11. He did not appear to be so powerful until he just revealed his powers of God of Destruction, and his physique changed dramatically.
She had already been chosen by Belmodo (the current God of Destruction of Universe 11) to be his replacement, due to his sense of justice and leadership among the Pride Squad. And Toppo showed his powers while fighting Freeza and Android 17. But he was defeated by Vegeta, after the Saiyan used a technique of self-destruction.
Still, it proved to be very powerful and came to face three fighters from Universe 7 at once.
Jiren is the most powerful warrior in the Universe 11. When he was young, he saw his parents being killed by an evil entity, which made him extremely strong. He still managed to face this enemy once, but he ended up defeated and saw his companions and master killed.
Like Toppo, he has fought several enemies at the same time in the Tournament of Power. And he has already achieved several feats, such as forcing the destruction of Android 17 so that he could protect Goku and Vegeta, in addition to stopping Goku’s Genki Lady and still fighting equally with the protagonist, even in the form of the Higher Instinct.
We’ve all seen that Beerus, the God of Destruction in Universe 7, has enormous power and an explosive temper. He wanted to look for Goku after discovering that he was able to defeat Freeza and challenge him to a fight, something that the Saiyan accepted at the time.
Beerus was able to knock out Goku with a simple blow to his neck. And even after the protagonist became the Super Saiyan God, Goku was unable to defeat the God of Destruction.
The angel who loves to eat and mentors Beerus gets to be stronger than Goku and the God of Destruction himself. Something confirmed by Akira Toriyama himself. “If Beerus’ strength is 10, the Super Saiyan God is 6. And I believe Whis would be 15,” he said.
In the very few times it took action, we have seen that Whis has impressive strength, speed and endurance. Just remember when you trained Goku and Vegeta, as he dodged his blows without making much effort. And it still has the ability to go back in time in three minutes. Not to mention his brilliant intellect.
Zen’oh is not called the King of the 12 Universes for nothing. Theoretically, he is the most powerful divine being in the entire Dragon Ball saga.
Their childlike appearance and behavior only disguise all their powers. For example, you can even say that Goku, Vegeta and Trunks defeated Zamasu, but it was Zen’oh that erased him from existence. And it has the power to erase universes with the blink of an eye.
And it is he and his other timeline counterpart who are conducting the current Dragon Ball Super Power Tournament and have already erased several universes from the competition.
