Dragon Ball’s Goku has been a part of the medium of anime for decades, with the Shonen hero still standing front and center in the pages of Dragon Ball Super’s manga. While Son Goku will be training off-world during this summer’s Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, the movie that will see Gohan and Piccolo taking on the resurrected Red Ribbon Army and its new nefarious androids, the Saiyan brawler has gone viral thanks to one fan artist’s amazing renditions of the anime protagonist squaring off against some strange opponents.
While Goku might not be the star of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, the Z-Fighter and Vegeta are front and center in the fight against the Heeters in the Granolah The Survivor Arc currently unfolding in the pages of the Shonen’s manga. With the current arc traveling to the past to have Goku learn more about his father, Bardock, the villain Gas is looking to wipe both the Saiyans and the intergalactic bounty hunter off the face of the Earth. With Son still working on perfecting Ultra Instinct, this arc might harken a new era of power for the Z-Fighter.
Twitter Artist Venom Moe shared these hilarious new images of Son Goku, with the painter stating that “every time that they lose an argument, they will paint Goku” which have created some wild works that have gone viral with the Dragon Ball character who first arrived in the 1980s:

There are currently no plans for Dragon Ball Super, and Goku, to return to the small screen following the conclusion of the original series with the finale of the Tournament of Power, though there certainly is plenty of material from the manga for the show to adapt whenever it does return. As the Granolah The Survivor Arc continues to play out, it will be interesting to see if Son is able to evolve as he fights against Gas while also learning more about his heritage within the Saiyan race.
Do you want to see Goku step down from the main protagonist role of Dragon Ball to give either Gohan or Piccolo a shot? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of Dragon Ball Super.
