Anime Brekfast VS: who is stronger between Goku and Vegeta?

Who is stronger between Goku and Vegeta? An age-old question that has never found a definitive answer and to which we will try to give a point in this new episode of Anime Breakfast, follow us on this journey

We have voluntarily decided, in these tens of weeks that have separated us from the first episode of Anime Breakfast (do you remember that epic that was writing Neon Genesis Evangelion without making anyone angry?) not to bring up Dragon Ball as well. This is because, in reality, we already intended to throw it into the cauldron by introducing a sub-section of Anime Breakfast, namely the “VS”. A virtual space in which it is possible to imagine, reason and discuss who would win in hypothetical final clashes. And although in other instances we will mix distinct universes, especially taking into consideration those of the shonen, in this case we have decided to start with the canonical and evergreen: but who would win between Goku and Vegeta, if we really need an absolute winner?

Who is stronger between Goku and Vegeta: is there a single answer?

One of the key topics that has always held ground among Dragon Ball fans has always been the one that compared the actual strength levels of Goku and Vegeta, two iconic characters from the Akira Toriyama series and, definitely, two of the most unforgettable. They are both very good fightersvalid and determined, but have different fighting styles and power (and life, let us tell you) progressions.

Goku, as you all know, is the protagonist of the series and is also the one who is at the center of the crucial battles. He has gradually achieved more and more impressive powers, through various transformations. From the iconic Super Saiyan (how many memories and how old we are!) to get to theUltra Instinctall the various levels of Goku’s power have always led him to overcome what, up to that moment, it seemed the maximum power reachable by a Saiyan. If we also add our protagonist’s insatiable desire to overcome himself and his limits and constant training to a natural propensity for strength, you can only imagine what level of determination and power he has been able to reach over the thirty years that separate us from start of the series.

Vegeta the Saiyan Prince | Who is stronger between Goku and Vegeta

Vegeta is instead the Saiyan prince who goes from being Goku’s main enemy as well as potential destroyer of the Earth, to a key member of the group who will save its fate. Even Vegeta, being as Saiyan as much and perhaps even more than Goku, has achieved many powerful transformations, starting from the classic Super Saiyan to the Super Saiyan God form. Unlike Goku though, Vegeta is characterized by a boundless pride that puts him in competition not so much with himself, but with the protagonist himself.

Goku reaches the Ultra Instinct form, for example, precisely to represent his innate ability to act without thoughts, detach his brain and react completely instinctively in combat. The umpteenth challenge which, characterically speaking, the young Saiyan stands in front exclusively to get stronger.

Over the course of the series, however, Vegeta progresses not only in terms of mere power, but also in his purely human side. The Prince’s main struggle is with himself, to overcome precisely that sense of contemptuous pride that leads him to refuse the help of others, friendships and love. Even his transformations often reflect precisely that determination that gradually develops, especially in the sense of protection towards his family. The Super Saiyan God form, for example, was obtained precisely as a reward for his willingness to sacrifice himself for the common good.

Within all of the various Dragon Ball subseries, the two often clash in friendly fights or in rather particular situations, showing both levels of strength and preparation unattainable for any other fighter. As it should be, however, the series has often balanced the power levels of the two characters, to ensure an interesting and engaging storyline, full of captivating twists.

A balance that leads the question “Who is stronger between Goku and Vegeta” to be difficult to solve, in technical terms. The result of a fight between the two could vary according to the circumstances and situations, also because both have been able to demonstrate a remarkable adaptability in fights, always tipping the balance in their favor when the moment seemed less optimal. If we really had to choose in theoretical terms, it is very probable that in the end Goku would still win, being the eternal protagonist.

So who wins?

However, ultimately, it is almost impossible to answer the question “Who is stronger between Goku and Vegeta?” The same series and Toriyama himself has always kept a certain balance of power between the two, without going too far and allowing them to shine in different situations and in different ways. The best thing remains, even at more than thirty years, discussing and reasoning about certain topics, and it is perhaps also for this reason that despite advanced age and gray hair starting to appear, Dragon Ball always remains a point of reference.
