Gokū in Dragon Ball Heroes promotional video.

A Xeno version of Son Gokū debuts in Dragon Ball Heroes. He bears the same physical appearance, down to the complexion, innocent face, and the trademark spiky hair he inherited from Bardock. However, unlike the original, this Gokū adopts a new gi, consisting of a black, skintight shirt that reaches his neck — resembling Gokū Black — black gi pants, and black shoes with blue wrappings. He also wears matching blue armbands. Over his main outfit is a redd overcoat. Additionally, the Saiyan wears his Nyoibō, concealed this time in a yellow encasement, and wears a satchel of Senzu at his side. This version of Gokū is allied with the Time Patrol, and fought Demigra alongside Beat, Trunks, and the others.

Dragon Ball: Online[]

Live Action[]

A live action version of Son Gokū debuts in Dragonball Evolution. However, outside sharing the same name this version of Gokū has completely different background and origin, most prominently him being a high school student not very interested in martial arts training as well as any trace of his Saiyan origin being non existent and replaced by him being a monstrous minion of the demon Piccolo.

Notes & References[]


  1. Dragon Ball Minus, page 9 and Jaco the Galactic Patrolman, page 216 confirmed to have been sent to Earth as age 3 in Dragon Ball Minus; Bulma was 5 at the time. Bulma, who is 16 when the series starts, is therefore two years older than Gokū.

  7. In the original manga, Gokū only knows the technique in theory and has never used it with anyone, merely teaching it to Goten and Trunks. Only in the movies and Dragon Ball GT did Gokū use the technique himself.
