Son Goku (birth name Kakarot) is the main protagonist of the Dragon Ball series. He appeared in the 25th episode of Death Battle, Goku VS Superman and the Rematch in the 50th episode, where he fought Superman from DC Comics. He is voiced by Lawrence "MasakoX" Simpson, one of the members of Team Four Star who voices the very same character along side with other roles in the Dragon Ball Z Abridged series.

History

Born from a low-class warrior named Bardock on Planet Vegeta with the birthname Kakarot, Goku was a member of the warrior race known as Saiyans. Shortly after being born, he narrowly escaped the extinction of his entire race as an infant when he was sent from a space pod to Earth with the mission to wipe out the inhabitants and conquer the planet. A martial arts master, Son Gohan, found him and took Goku under his wing, who forgot his mission after falling in a ravine and hitting his head. Throughout his life, he trains hard and strives to be the greatest warrior possible, while at the same time using his amazing strength and skills to uphold peace.

Chuck Norris VS Segata Sanshiro

During the final clash between the martial artists in Chuck Norris VS Segata Sanshiro, Goku in his Super Saiyan God form is briefly seen fighting Superman, foreshadowing the rematch in the nearby future.

Solid Snake VS Sam Fisher

The teaser from the Boba Fett VS Samus Aran Remastered livestream where Goku is seen charging his Super Saiyan God form is briefly seen in Solid Snake VS Sam Fisher on the computer Sam Fisher is hacking.

Hercule Satan VS Dan Hibiki

In Hercule Satan VS Dan Hibiki, when Mr. Satan starts panicking as Dan Hibiki charges his Shinku Gadouken, he briefly sees Dan as Goku charging up his Kamehameha to remind the audience of his fear of chi users.

​One Minute Melee

Goku appeared in a Season 3 April Fools episode of One Minute Melee where the fight was supposedly against Sonic the Hedgehog, but he ends up defeating him and a number of characters who have his ham with little effort, including Godzilla, Kirby, and most of the Avengers. He was finally stopped in the end by Saitama from One Punch Man. His "One Minute Massacre" was later referenced in Superman VS Saitama and Raiden VS Genos. His massacre also launched Hulk to Namek, which led to Hulk's battle with Broly.  

He later had a cameo appearance in Cell VS Meruem fight, where he teleported Cell to King Kai's planet after the villain is defeated by Meruem, reenacting the ending to the Cell saga.  

In Gohan VS Superboy, a training session between him and Gohan went bad resulting in a clone of Goku going free (likely to be the same clone who fought Sonic and the after-mentioned characters from earlier).  

The real Goku appeared as a combatant in the Season 5 Finale to fight against Saitama in a full match this time. He lost both rounds, despite using both Super Saiyan Blue and Ultra Instinct -Sign-.  

DBX

Goku made a brief cameo in Ronald McDonald VS Colonel Sanders DBX, he's seen sitting behind Wario at a McDonald's.
