Although Son Goku has become one of the most powerful people in the Dragon Ball series, he will never be the greatest fighter, for obvious reasons!
Son Goku is perhaps the strongest fighter in Dragon Ball’s Universe 7, apart from gods and some creatures possessing terrifying powers, but a long time ago, there were details that suggested he would never be. become the greatest fighter in the Dragon Ball series, and the reason behind this is clear!
As the main character of the series and has appeared since Chapter 1 in Dragon Ball, Goku at the beginning of the series has a mission to find the Dragon Balls, they can grant wishes, but after that, his “mission” quickly changed to become the best fighter in the world. To do this, Goku went to the old man to be trained, because he was one of the greatest warriors in history at the time. Although Goku later learned how to use Ki, turning them into powerful attacks with ease, there was an aspect of being the greatest warrior that the monkey man had yet to have.
In Dragon Ball chapter 28, the old man wanted to see how fast his students possessed, so that he could gauge their strength and prepare their training accordingly. The old man told Krillin and Goku to run to a tree in the distance, while I counted the time. He was then impressed by the speed of the two, and Gui Lao showed them how fast he would be after they both went through the training process by running to the tree himself, showing his speed. extremely impressive. After the old man finished Goku and Krillin’s training that day, he asked Goku to get him a beer, but he was confused because he didn’t know what beer was. The old man then said to Goku: “Hmmm… a martial arts master must be adept at knowledge too. I still have a lot to learn in this area…”, and this is what he will do in the future. Between the two’s physical training sessions, Krillin and Goku also learned the culture, and the old man was the one who taught them. But unfortunately, it seems that in this respect he failed to teach Goku!.
Son Goku is an extremely excellent fighter, now he has even surpassed the limits of mortals and used the energy of the gods to increase his power many times over. However, Goku is still like a child, always carefree. He often puts himself and those around him in many awkward situations, all due to his obsession with becoming the strongest warrior without thinking through them in advance. In the early chapters of Dragon Ball Super, Goku almost destroys the Earth while fighting Beerus, because the power of both is too great and fierce, but during the battle, the monkey is always excited for himself. have a chance to fight a strong character like the God of Destruction. Some time later in Dragon Ball Super, Goku becomes responsible for the Tournament of Power, which leads to the destruction of several universes, all because he wants to fight warriors from all over the world. , to once again become stronger.
Although Son Goku regularly trains to develop his strength, he makes no effort to find ways to improve his thinking. Goku is still a goof, he puts himself in dangerous situations for a chance to become stronger, no matter the cost! Plus, Goku doesn’t care much about other things. He completely ignored his son’s extremely impressive academic record. We can see that Goku failed in training with the old man, and also see that he will never become the greatest fighter of Dragon Ball, because Goku has overlooked one of the aspects. The most important of martial arts, it is mastery of knowledge!
