Goku is a playable character in the fighting game, M.U.G.E.N Trilogy. He was confirmed on July 18, 2017 along with several anime characters. Masako Nozawa (Japanese) and Sean Schemmel (who also assumes the role for Lucario, English) provide the role for Goku in this fighting game, using recycled voice clips from Dragon Ball FighterZ.


Goku was based on one of Toriyama's earlier characters named "Tanton", a fictional protagonist who appeared in an one-shot series called Dragon Boy. When Toriyama decided to create Dragon Ball, he used Chinese author Wu Cheng'en's 16th century classic novel Journey to the West as inspiration for his own series. The name Toriyama adopted for the character is the Japanese romanization of 孫悟空, who is the central character of the novel.

Goku is usually recognized by his uniquely styled hair, which never changes its length throughout the series except when in his Super Saiyan forms and Ultra Instinct, in which his hair changes color and length based on the level he ascends to. This, as explained by Vegeta, is a common trait with full-blooded Saiyans. Another recognizable trait are his trademark red-orange dōgi uniform and blue clothes.

He is known for his cheerful, energetic personality and his love of competition (specifically sport fighting and eating). He has a remarkable intuition at seeing the good in others in spite of their actions, though his capacity for forgiving his enemies has occasionally been criticized as excessive. Goku, for the most part, only fights to win, and spares his enemies after defeating them, only for them to attack him when his back is turned. His staggering power is simultaneously reined in and enhanced by his fierce loyalty and morality. His selfishness and pugnacity is heavily overshadowed by his good personality, but it becomes a bit more clear in his Super Saiyan forms. He has a simple, practical view of the world and is somewhat naive to his surroundings. Because of this, many characters incorrectly assume him to be somewhat stupid, although once he has a basic understanding of things, he learns very quickly. His most remarkable ability is his will to succeed, pushing himself beyond his limitations, and never giving up even when the odds are stacked against him.
