Gokua (ゴクア; FUNimation "Kogu") was a member of the Galaxy Soldiers and originated from Herā clan. He débuted in Dragon Ball Z: The Galaxy's at the Brink!! The Super Incredible Guy. He perished at the hands Trunks in their invasion of Earth.
As a member of the Galaxy Soldiers, a nefarious platoon of Bōjakku's mercenaries, he was shown to be very heinous. Analogous to his peers having no qualms, indiscriminately killing, under his affiliation. This was displayed during the Tenka-Ichi Budōkai where after spotting Trunks he disregarded the competition's guidelines, by having a weapon on his person. He attempting to blindside the half-Saiyan, showing mercilessness. During his battle with Trunks he rejoiced the act of battle, and was often arrogant in multiple occasions. He usually smirks when having the upper-hand, and quite over-confident. This arrogance ultimately costed him his life, where instead of finishing off his opponent he continues to taunt them, even when in a dominant position.
Gokua and Trunks were able to fight evenly in their base forms. Like Bojakku, he was able to transform allowing him to gain the upper hand against the latter, although in the end even in his full power, he was no match for Super Saiyan Trunks.

Gokua was skilled in fighting with his sword, offensively and defensively.
