I am the hope of the omniverse! I am the light bulb in the darkness! I am the bacon in the fridge for all living things that cry out in hunger! I am the Alpha and the Amiga! I am the terror that flaps in the night! I AM SON GOKU, AND I AM A SUPER... Saiyan.
~ Goku's hero speech with Freeza failing to silence him.

Son Goku is the protagonist of Dragon Ball Z: The Abridged Series by Team Four Star.


Goku's negative traits are heavily exaggerated in this series, to the point where he's barely a hero. He's a complete idiot, making the worst decisions possible which only work out in the end due to plot conveniences. He's obsessed with food, to the point where Freeza could bribe him with pizza to spare his life. He also considers his lifelong friend Oolong to be an emergency food source. The only food he doesn't like is grapes, which he has a bizarre reaction to.

His relationship with his son Gohan is rocky to say the least. He's either absent from the boy's life or pushing him to take up martial arts, despite Gohan's pacifist nature. By the time Goku is ready to fight Freeza, he seems to have shirked his parenting responsibilities completely over to Piccolo, even outright stating that he doesn't care about being Gohan's role model because that's what Piccolo is for.

Despite his flaws, Goku is still a good friend. Witnessing the (second) death of Krillin triggered his Super Saiyan transformation. When Trunks told him that Yamcha would commit suicide in the future, Goku reached out and let Yamcha know that he cared about him.


I'm going to break you... like a Kit-Kat bar
~ Goku while fighting Freeza (Team Four Star)
So, are you that Freezer guy? Awesome! Imma deck you in the schnozz!
I'm Goku! I'm insane, from Earth!
Man, this is worse than that time I was in high school, and all the guys called me "Geeko", and I was Piccolo's slave, I couldn't get Chi-Chi to like me, and... Oh wow, I hit that rock harder than I thought.
When you fall off that horse, you get right back up and you eat that horse!
You know where I was when I became a Super Saiyan? I was on Namek. I thought I'd finally defeated Freezer with the Spirit Bomb. But as it turns out, he was still alive! He killed Vegeta, he killed Krillin... Piccolo... tripped, or something. It was pretty bad for everyone. Then, he threatened to do the same to my son! ...Oh hey, you were there! ...Why didn't you go Super Saiyan?
I like food cause it is yummy. I will put this in my tummy. We can have all the rice. All you have to do is go-go grab a bowl!
I'm just no afraid of change, I guess. I've never been. When it comes down to it, I know they're gonna be alright, because if I've learned anything since landing on Earth, it's that everyone is stronger than they think they are. I left behind the best people in the world and I'm happy about that. Things changed and they're gonna keep changing. There's no stopping that. Most important part? Now they can live their own lives and make their own futures. I can't wait to see the kind of future they make!
