He transformed into a giant monkey as a child and killed his adoptive grandfather on accident, forcing him to live alone in the wilderness for much of his young life. After meeting Bulma and learning about the mystical Dragon Balls, Goku's life was forever changed and led to him becoming a legendary martial artist who saved the world many times. In the following years, he became a prodigal warrior who saved the universe from the likes of Frieza, Cell, and Majin Buu in his journey to become the strongest fighter alive.
After the awakening of Seventh Universe God of Destruction, Lord Beerus, Goku obtained God Ki and clashed with the deity in a fight which resulted in Goku's loss. Following the fight, Goku become apprentice under Lord Beerus' master and servant, Whis, for further training.

Battle of Gods Arc
While plowing the field, Goten appears with lunch for Goku and Goku tells Goten to work the tractor while he eats. After he was finished eating, Goku starts training in Super Saiyan. While training, he imagines fighting Frieza, Cell, and Majin Buu but this causes Goten to fall off the mountainside. Goku quickly notices and uses Instant Transmission to save the tractor and Goten. He explains to Goten that he needs to watch what he's doing so that he could train in case a stronger foe than Majin Buu appears.
Later that day, Goten tells Goku that he and Trunks had gotten Videl a wedding gift, when Mr. Satan arrives to offer Goku 100 million zeni, as a way to say thank you for helping him defeat Buu. Goku initially declines, not understanding how large a sum 100 million zeni actually is and tells him to give it to Vegeta but Mr. Satan says that the Briefs is richer than he is. Goten reminds Goku that if he gave Chi-Chi all of the money, he could easily quit his job and go train with King Kai. At Mr. Satan and Goten's recommendation, Goku accepts the offer, and after talking with Chi-Chi, transports to King Kai's planet to start his training.
When Goku arrives at King Kai's planet, he causes King Kai to crash into his house. After the crash, King Kai makes Goku food and starts rebuilding his house. While King Kai wasn't enjoying rebuilding his house, Goku was explaining to King Kai that he is there to train ten times the gravity of Earth. King Kai says to Goku that he is an important figure and the most important of all Kais, but Goku sees King Kai as a friend. Goku changes clothes to a blue and white tracksuit and starts his training.
While training, Goku hears his name in a conversation between King Kai, Old Kai, and Kibito Kai to keep Goku away from the God of Destruction Beerus. Goku scares King Kai and gets paint all on him. To distract Goku from the conversation, King Kai brings up what Goku did, teleporting Cell to his planet, blowing it into bits, as a result causing King Kai's death. After being successfully distracted by Kais' conversation, Goku continues his training pushing tons of weights. Goku remembers that he was missing Bulma's birthday party and gets scared of what she might do. Goku starts to notice that King Kai was acting strange and wonders why but King Kai keeps it to himself.
King Kai asks Goku to go to Bulma's party or he might lose friends, but Goku still refuses to go and trains some more. Goku fires a Kamehameha wave on King Kai's planet causing his house to fall apart again. With King Kai frustrated, he slips the name Beerus and sparks Goku's interest. King Kai starts to explain to Goku Beerus' role in the universe: he is a god keeps balance in the universe and is the most fearsome god. This interests Goku even more, which makes Goku want to meet Beerus. King Kai senses Beerus' ki getting closer and encourages Goku to not do anything reckless and also tells him to hide in his house. Beerus arrives on King Kai's planet which strikes fear into King Kai.
Goku, who stayed hidden with Gregory in King Kai's house, is still noticed when Beerus needed to speak with him. Beerus asked Goku if he ever heard of the name Super Saiyan God but Goku denies. Beerus is disappointed and asks him if he was the one who defeated Frieza and Goku claims that he did as used the power of a Super Saiyan. Goku's power in his base was examined by Beerus and says that he's couldn't have beaten him unless he transformed. Goku is curious about Beerus's power and asks to have a battle with him. Beerus accepts to see the power of Goku.
Goku immediately transforms into Super Saiyan as soon as he was ready. He charges Beerus but he shows no effort towards Goku. Goku quickly bores Beerus, making him want to leave. Goku turns Super Saiyan 2 which surprises Beerus that Goku managed to surpass his limits. They both continue to fight but Beerus constantly dodged Goku's punches and kicks. Goku wanted to pause the battle for a moment to ask Beerus if he could fight back instead of dodging. Beeus agrees and says that he will attack back if Goku managed to show more of his power. Even after agreeing, Beerus dodges his attacks. Goku continues to throw punches, putting holes through King Kai's planet.
Goku transforms into his final transformation, Super Saiyan 3. Goku charges with full force, managing to get punches on Beerus. A Kamehameha wave was shot towards Beerus but was blocked by his finger. Goku began to feel intimidated by Beerus and attacks him once again. He notices his hits aren't landing and that Beerus let him get hits on him. A final Kamehameha being blown, missed Beerus and went through King Kai's planet. Beerus had enough and decided to attack Goku, flicking him on the forehead and pressed a pressure point on Goku's shoulder, making him revert back to his base form. Beerus and Whis left to Earth after this, with Goku is lying on the ground in agony. He remarks about the comments Beerus made about the Super Saiyan God. He still wants to fight Beerus and suggests fusion with Vegeta but still doesn't think that isn't enough. He gets up, knowing that the Earth is in danger and wants to go back to prevent Beerus' destruction.
Goku is given a Senzu Bean by King Kai, recovering from his battle with Beerus. Goku wants to go to Bulma's birthday party but King Kai, Gregory, and Bubbles won't let him. Goku decides to wait it out on King Kai's planet but doesn't know if he can do so. After the battles of the Z-Fighters and Beerus, Beerus decides that he should destroy planet Earth. Goku intervenes Beerus before he does so and asks for time to summon the Super Saiyan God. Beerus gave him the time he needed to use the Dragon Balls to summon Shenron. After Goten and Trunks laid out the Dragon Balls, Goku summoned Shenron and asks him if he knows of the Super Saiyan God.
He tells them how to create one, proceeding to speak the procedures required to make one before disappearing. Now knowing how to create it, Goku along with Vegeta, Goten, Trunks and Gohan attempt to channel their powers over to Goku, but they only succeed in increasing his power. Whis notes that they need six righteous Saiyan and Videl soon steps up, announcing her pregnancy. They then attempt the ritual once more, this time with Videl. With six righteous Saiyans' powers combined, the ritual was reattempted. After a lengthy procedure, he has finally become, a Super Saiyan God.
Goku and Beerus both ascend into the sky. Goku is yet to get a hold on his great power and attempts a few failed attacks on Beerus, but while he fought, he slowly came to grasp this new height of power. To measure his power, Goku charges a Kamehameha Wave and launches it soon after at Beerus, who effortlessly evades it as the blast explodes in the sea. Beerus then attacks the Saiyan, showing him the difference between them however, Goku, while slowly getting used to his new power, manages to grab Beerus' fist, demonstrating that he can catch up to the Destroyer now.
Beerus compliments his power and proceeds to launch an energy ball at Goku, which Goku struggles greatly in deflecting but manages to throw it off eventually. Goku charges up before attacking Beerus yet again, a few failed punches followed by a successful one that aggravates the deity. An angered Beerus attempts yet another punch, but is surprised by Goku who evades his fist, locking the god in his arm and then flicking him in the forehead, continuing to chop him in the neck, similar to how Beerus defeated him at King Kai's planet. However, unlike Beerus, Goku's hits were too weak to knock the god out while Goku states that they are even now, Beerus commenting that he didn't expect him to be the type of person who'd carry a chip on his shoulder. Beerus then announced that henceforth, a battle between the gods will continue.
Goku first charges at Beerus but without Beerus knowing, Goku uses the Afterimage Technique to hit Beerus in the abdomen. The two fight on par as the sky is beginning to become absent of clouds with the sheer power of Goku gaining rapid punches to Beerus and Beerus does the same. Beerus decides to launch a Sphere of Destruction at Goku in which he compresses the blast. The gods exchange several attacks towards each other: Goku bites Beerus' tail, Beerus smooshing Goku's face together, Goku screaming in Beerus' ear, and Beerus pulling Goku's nose with his fingernail. Goku notices that Beerus isn't using his full power against him. Before Goku could finish speaking, he is blasted several times by Beerus and is blown onto an island. While on the island, Goku is getting pounded on by the Destroyer until Goku headbutts and punches him. Goku is launched into the air and is repeated being hit until he reaches space.
Goku is immobile until Beerus tries to motivate Goku to use his full power. Beerus creates an atomic bomb and kicks it towards Earth. The is unblock-able so Goku decides to blast it with a one handed Kamehameha. Beerus creates multiple and fires them, so Goku powers up a Kamehameha to blast them all. Without reacting quickly enough, he is impaled through his abdomen from Beerus which makes him think he's found the wrong warrior to fight. Goku fall down to the Earth, into the ocean. Goku starts to think that he didn't know a person that strong could've existed. In the moment, his body starts to heal with the power of Super Saiyan God and starts to get excited. Goku launches from the ocean back to space. Goku states that the power of Super Saiyan God is rising his power and wants to continue the battle and see the power of Beerus.
Goku and Beerus continue to ascend in space. While rising, Goku notices Beerus wasn't following from below and was behind him. After an attempt to chop Goku's hand, Goku catches it and they both agree to not use any "cheap tricks". Goku and Beerus charge their ki and rush towards each other to clash their fists. This clash leads to rifts throughout the universe. The power of the two clashing could destroy the planets, the stars, the universe, the gods, and themselves. Goku and Beerus continue to clash even though they were both contacted by Kibito Kai to cease battle. Goku and Beerus continue to charge their ki and clash on last time, after three others. The clash however was canceled by Goku, as he used the same amount of power and attacked at the same angle as Beerus. After Goku has stated to have been testing his new techniques on Beerus, Beerus becomes frustrated even more. Goku leave a scratch on Beerus leaving him to an Atomic Bomb attack on Goku and he returns a Kamehameha. The collision of the blasts cause rifts throughout the universe, destroying many planets and stars, and other effects. Goku continues to surpass his limits using the Super Saiyan God's powers. After the draw of power, an explosion of light flares out.
Goku is struggling in the ki clash with Beerus. Beerus eventually nullifies the energy that was being exerted out; Goku is told that he was able to do so if he used 100% of his power. Goku and Beerus continue exchanging blows toward each other. Goku's power has been increasing during his battle as stated by Beerus. Goku also started to use 100% of his power against him. When Beerus used an attack he used against Goku earlier in the battle, Goku grabs his head and gets three headbutts on him - eventually still getting blasted by Beerus' attack. Goku's Super Saiyan God form is starting to expire, due to having a time limit, but still possesses the power. Goku reverts back into his Super Saiyan form, but still is able to gets hits on Beerus.
Goku and Beerus continue exchanging blows and energy blasts towards each other as they go toward Earth. Goku is struggling to keep up with Beerus even though he has the god power. As Beerus is holding his hand out, Goku charges him and punches his hand, leading them to space again. A light shined and it could be seen throughout the universe. Goku starts to fade out of his Super Saiyan form. Beerus flicks Goku, as an end to their battle. Goku, however, as he is falling towards Earth, he doesn't take this as a loss and thinks of his family and friends, fueling him to continuing showing off his power.
Goku uses his energy to create a fully-powered Kamehameha and Beerus throws a atom-like blast. The collision of these two creates a Sphere of Destruction. Goku is struggling to counter Beerus, leading him to punch the energy sphere and completely destroying the blast. Goku, as a result, falls toward Earth. Vegeta catches him before he could hit Bulma's ship. Goku who is in pain, tries to convince Beerus not to destroy the Earth. As Beerus is ready to destroy the Earth, he fires a ki blast at Bulma's ship but misses because he falls asleep. Whis takes off with Beerus but before he does, he thanks Goku for entertaining Beerus. In the manga, after his fight with Beerus, Beerus returns to Goku to tell him that he's the second strongest fighter he's ever fought.
After fighting him, Goku has a big meal. Goku hears the news of Gohan becoming a father and tells him to give the baby plenty of food. Goten asks him how it felt becoming a god, Goku responds that he didn't actually become a god and that he doesn't like it. Goku tells Vegeta that he'll become the next Super Saiyan God, but Vegeta tells him that he'll surpass him, Beerus, and Super Saiyan God. Goku then mocks Vegeta for the for Vegeta's rage outburst when Beerus knocked out Bulma. Piccolo points out that Goku has been watching the because he teleported to reach there. Goku says that he couldn't think of anything while watching them fight.
Resurrection ‘F’ Arc
After the battle with the God of Destruction Beerus, Goku wants to train on King Kai's planet but he has to continue farming because Chi-Chi has used the 100 million zeni on Goten's education and he has a granddaughter on the way. Goku is trying to get his tractor fixed by Bulma but no one is at home. He passes by Satan City where he sees a match between Mr. Satan and Galbi. Mr. Satan volunteers Goku to take on Galbi because he is scared to fight. While only in their fighting stances, Goku has to go because he sees Chi-Chi and Piccolo. She doesn't want him fighting and wants him to be a good grandfather for Gohan's upcoming daughter. At night time, Goku returns home, where he sees Goten and Chi-Chi there. Goku is hungry but doesn't want to go in because he doesn't want to be in trouble.
Goku continues farming and is using his tractor but is unaware of his actions due to him being asleep. Krillin arrives so Goku is alert at the moment. Krillin wonders how strong Goku has gotten so he is asked to punch him. Goku does so and it sends Krillin flying through buildings and across land. Goku uses Instant Transmission to catch him but misses him, letting him hit a bolder. Goku takes him back to his place to rest and get treatment by 18. Goku wants become stronger so he doesn't fall behind. When nobody was around, he has his training session.
Six months later, after Pan is born. Chi-Chi doesn't want Pan to be a fighter like the rest of the family. When Videl and Chi-Chi are discussing her future, Goku is brought by Goten to persuade Chi-Chi to come out so Gohan and Mr. Satan could speak with her. After Bulma is able to come in and she mentions that Vegeta has been training on Beerus' planet with Whis, Goku smashes through Gohan's library but he still fixes it. Goku asks Bulma for Whis' next return and she says that he'll return in a month or two. Chi-Chi doesn't want Goku training but he perseveres to try to.
Goku waits impatiently, interrupting Bulma while she's doing activities. She eventually gives him a phone to get in contact with him when Whis shows up. After some time, Bulma calls and tells him that Whis has arrived on Earth. Goku goes to Capsule Corporation where Whis and Bulma are eating with each other. Whis agrees to take Goku to train with him but he has to wait because Whis went to Earth to eat. Goku starts annoying Whis to take him to train. As Whis finished, he is ready to leave but Chi-Chi is approaching in the arms of Gohan. Goku rushes to leave with Whis so he wouldn't get in trouble.
Goku and Whis are approaching Beerus' planet. When they get there, Goku is happy to see Vegeta and notices that he's gotten stronger since being trained by Whis for six months. Goku has to do chores with Vegeta and help him change Beerus' sheets. When they get into Beerus' room, Goku is amazed and demanded to remain quiet so Beerus won't wake up. Goku and Vegeta have to wait for the perfect moment to change his sheets but Goku is getting impatient. Goku gets attacked by Beerus several times but at one point, Beerus had Goku in a leg lock. Goku easily lifted Beerus so Vegeta could change his sheets.
Goku and Vegeta continue doing housework all over Beerus' planet. Once they finalized their chores, they began training with Whis. Before they commenced, Whis gives Goku a new gi because Vegeta received a new one from Bulma. Goku and Vegeta used weights to train. They both had to carry their weight and travel along a path before they get lost in another dimension if they fall off. Later that day, Goku and Vegeta go to their room to prepare to go to sleep. Goku says that he doesn't want to do the housework but he still wants to keep training. Goku falls asleep moments after. The next day, Goku and Vegeta are sparring against Whis to hit him. Their match is stopped because they lacked the speed to keep up. Whis starts to tell Goku and Vegeta their weaknesses and says that Goku is too calm in his fights and could lead him to fail in the end.
When Frieza has been revived, Goku senses a huge power from Earth can't doesn't know what it is. Goku is told by Vegeta to ignore and continue doing housework. Later, Goku and Vegeta spar with each other under the supervision of Whis and they accidentally tapped into a new power-up but only for a short while. They eventually see Beerus who has recently woken in his sleep and told him that they came to train with Whis and only want to get stronger.
Goku and Vegeta are training when their sparring match has been ceased by Whis because they were just throwing blows at each other. Beerus points out that Goku and Vegeta have gotten stronger and wants to fight them. Goku says that he and Vegeta are still below Beerus in power and are no match for him. Beerus suggests to send Goku and Vegeta to "that place" so they can train to get stronger quicker. While in that place, Goku and Vegeta cannot move until Vegeta figures out that they shouldn't have their ki leaking out. They also recognize that he place they're in is similar to the Hyperbolic Time Chamber but filled with god ki and no signs of an exit. Without knowing where to go, Goku and Vegeta go towards Whis' staff.
In Whis' dimension, Goku and Vegeta continue sparring. Whis finally brings back Goku and Vegeta because Beerus is getting frustrated and wants more pizza, which is in Whis' staff. Upon returning his staff, all of the pizza has been eaten because Goku and Vegeta needed to eat or they would've starved and died. Beerus is furious with them so he chases them into the woods. Whis sees on his staff that he's received a message and recognizes Bulma. She tells him that Frieza has come back and she needs Goku and Vegeta. The time it'll take for Whis to get Vegeta and Goku to Earth will be 35 minutes so Goku finds an alternative method. Goku is trying to use Instant Transmission to get to Earth but he can't sense anybody's ki. When Gohan fully powers up into a Super Saiyan, Goku is able to sense it. Goku holds out his hand for Vegeta to grab hold but Vegeta grabs a hold of his shoulder. Upon arrival, Goku flicks away a beam that was shot at Gohan from Frieza.
Goku speaks with Gohan to congratulate him for summoning them so Goku could use Instant Transmission. Goku also tells him that he'll wish Piccolo back with the Namekian Dragon Balls. He then instantly teleports Piccolo to the Lookout for Goten and Trunks to explain to Dende what transpired. Goku wonders how Frieza was resurrected and was told by Vegeta that the Dragon Balls have been used. Frieza begins to explain his torturous times in Hell, which has no meaning to Goku. Frieza then leaves his hover pod to further power up to combat Goku. Frieza transforms into his final form and in the process, he kills the rest of his army. Goku wishes that he goes first against Frieza because Vegeta has taken out Ginyu. Frieza is waiting for Goku to transform into a Super Saiyan but Goku says that that power is not needed yet.
Goku and Frieza are in their fighting stances. Frieza casually lands and suddenly power down. Both Goku and Frieza simultaneously walk towards each other so they both could deliver blows and begin a power struggle. The power struggle eventually explodes. Goku doesn't want hear Frieza complains so they could continue fighting. Then, Frieza commences to pull dirty tricks on Krillin and Bulma. Goku saves Krillin the first time but when trying to save Bulma, Frieza lands a blow that sends Goku falling toward the ground but Vegeta saves her. After colliding again, Goku warns Frieza about attacking the others and he's only fighting him. After a short conversation about Goku reviving Piccolo with the Dragon Balls, Frieza and Goku continue their match. Sometime after this, Goku is fighting Frieza but gets kicked in the back by Vegeta.
Goku and Vegeta begin fighting each other. Frieza breaks up their fight to ask Vegeta question his loyalty. Frieza wants to get his revenge on Goku so he wants Vegeta to wait a little longer. Goku and Frieza decide to reveal their true power to each other. Goku goes first and begins to concentrate his power. Goku unleashes his new power, Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan. Goku is impressed of the new transformation and says that Frieza, who is not impressed, should not act tough about it. Frieza questions if he just went Super Saiyan but Goku says that he's a Super Saiyan with the power of Super Saiyan God. Goku welcomes Frieza his turn to show his power.
Frieza compliments Goku on his hard work on becoming a Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan and talks a little bit more with Frieza until he keeps urging Frieza to show him his new power and he eventually does it after Goku catches a punch from behind. Goku becomes shocked and impressed by Frieza's new form and he calls itGolden Frieza. They decided to restart the fight with their new forms by starting at close combat then firing ki blasts at each other until it leads to an energy clash between the two's energy beams and keep pouring on the power until the resulting collision causes an explosion that blinds the spectators but despite the amount of power used, both combatants are still going at each other. After a seemingly even conflict, Frieza gains the upper hand and knocks Goku down to the ground with his Double Axe Handle, leaving the Saiyan surprised saying he took years of training to reach his current level but Freiza caught on like it's nothing. Frieza applauds his efforts but promises to tear him to shreds but the sight of Lord Beerus stops him for the moment. They resume their duel once more and once again Freiza gains the upper hand, leaving Goku exhausted and critically injured.
Despite the fact that Goku is losing, he refuses to give up which leads to Frieza strangling him and punching him in the face and gut until Goku bites his tail but once again the fight leads to him being blasted by Frieza and lands flat on his back on the ground but Goku kept going on. Vegeta suggested that he and Goku switch places and that he would kill Frieza himself but Goku insisted to the Saiyan prince that he "almost got him". Goku then tries to warn Frieza to leave before the tables turn and that leaves him to explain that Golden Frieza has a weakness but Goku refuses to tell him so they decided to use every once of power they have left and resume the fight again. After blocking a Full Power Energy Blast Volley, they fight at close combat once again, even with Frieza not allowing Goku to drown, and it would seem that Frieza has finally won until Goku fully resisted Frieza's finishing punch saying that he finally reached his time limit on his power-up and he punches Frieza through a rock and he ends up on the ground. Goku then explains Frieza's weakness: he came to Earth as soon as he unlocked his Golden Frieza form, therefore he is burning more stamina and power than his body can regulate it and should have waited until he got used to it before he can exact his revenge. Frieza tries to punch Goku again but the Saiyan catches it once more and explosion shows up behind him. When Goku reverts back into his base form, however, Sorbet shoots him in the chest with his Bad Ring Laser when he kindly asks Frieza to leave so he can have a rematch with him. Frieza then repeating kicks him and tells him his weakness: his excessive strength makes him careless, and Frieza prepares to kill Goku once and for all until Vegeta blocks the attack away after teleporting to their location.
After Vegeta told Goku so, he kicks him towards the location of Krillin, Gohan, and the others so that he can use the last Senzu Bean on him and with that a success, Goku thanks Vegeta for saving him and allows him to finish their fight with Frieza. Goku later explains to his friends that Vegeta too achieved his new Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan form on his form thanks to his own power. When Frieza blows up the Earth, Goku and his friends (except Vegeta) are shielded by Whis and they can only stand by and watch as their beloved home world goes down in flames. Blaming himself for this happening Goku regrets not killing Frieza right away until Whis offered to use his Temporal Do-Over technique to turn back time to before the incident happened and he accepted his offer. As soon as the technique is finished, Goku turns into a Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan once more and charges up a Dash Kamehameha so powerful that it destroys Frieza and sends him back to Earth's Hell. Vegeta shows up behind him afterwards and gives him a harsh scolding but Goku explained he had no choice so Bulma and the others explained everything towards him.
Goku then heads back to The Lookout to pick up Goten and Trunks and gather the Namekian Dragon Balls to revive Piccolo. He then explains to Piccolo what happened after he died and laughed after hearing Trunks saying he'll cut Frieza in half (a reference to what Future Trunks did to Frieza before the present Trunks was born). Goku then enjoys the feast Bulma threw and the food served in it. He later talks to Vegeta about planning to work together next time but Vegeta disagrees to that, and surprisingly, Goku agrees.
Sixth Universe/Champa Arc
Sometime after the battle against Golden Frieza, Goku is sparring (doing finger ups in the anime) with Vegeta on Beerus' planet which is being supervised by Whis. Goku and Vegeta fight on even terms until Vegeta got angry and went Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan. Goku gets blasted by a ki blast from Vegeta. Goku reminds Vegeta that Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan was off limits but turns Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan anyway. While stating their power to each other, Goku bites his tongue saying Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan repeatedly. Goku asks for a new name and a suggestion given from Whis is "Super Saiyan Blue". Whis punishes Goku and Vegeta for transforming by making them put on heavy space suits.
While Goku and Vegeta bicker at each other, Champa and Vados suddenly arrive on Beerus' planet. Goku notices that they both look like Beerus and Whis and was told by Vados that she is Whis' sister and Beerus and Champa are twins. Beerus is woken up by Whis with the request of Champa. When they both get back, Goku is told that the Universe 6 has their own Earth and the Earthlings were wiped out by war. Champa challenges Beerus to a five on five Universe 6 and Universe 7 tournament for the Universe 7's Earth, which makes Goku excited.
After Whis explains why Beerus and Champa don't fight each other anymore, they discuss the details for the tournament. The rules will be the same as the Tenkaichi Budokai and will be in five Earth days on the Nameless Planet at 10 a.m. If Champa won, he will use the Super Dragon Balls to switch the universes' Earths. If Beerus won, he will give him the six Dragon Balls he collected but Beerus has to find the last one on his own. Goku and Vegeta join Beerus' team off the bat. They also select Piccolo, Buu, and Beerus wants the strongest fighter he's ever faced, who's not Whis. Gohan is suggested by Vegeta to fight because he has the highest potential but Goku doesn't want him to because he's focused on studying. Goku and Vegeta go back to Earth to get Bulmato invent a new Dragon Radar to locate the last Super Dragon Ball.
After some time, Bulma creates a new Dragon Radar called, the Super Dragon Radar. Goku tests it out but it doesn't work where they are, at the edge of the universe. Bulma gets in contact with her sister, Tights, to getJaco to go to Earth. Goku asks Vegeta if he wants to train in the Time Chamber but Vegeta says that they're close to their limits. Goku says he will train alone and become stronger quicker, which leads to Vegeta wanting to train with him also and they could go all-out because they're two of them. Goku asks Piccolo to train wih him but he declines. In 50 minutes, Jaco shows up and tells Bulma that as a Galactic Patrolman, he's busy but he'll take her to see Zuno to know where the center of the universe is to use the Super Dragon Radar. Goku tells Vegeta that they both have feisty wives. Vegeta doesn't mind so much because he says that Saiyan women are strong-willed. Goku then comments that he likes Chi-Chi the way she is.
Goku and Vegeta are training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. Goku wonders if the warriors from Universe 6 will be strong. Vegeta says that Champa is confident in his warriors even though he saw them train before. Goku is excited to see them and even the fighter Beerus has been speaking of. Vegeta wants Goku to act his age. Not knowing what he meant, Goku responds saying that Saiyans stay young they reach the age of 80. Vegeta was however, taking about his mentality. Vegeta wants to stop talking then turns into Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan. Goku follows so they both could go all out in the room because it doesn't break. They train for three years in the room (three days in the outside world).
The day of the tournament, Goku and Vegeta finish their training in the Time Chamber and have beards after training for three years. The gang is on their way to Beerus' planet to pick up Beerus' to pick up Beerus and his pick for the team. They are being taken their by Whis in his Cube. Goku wonders and asks Videl where Gohanis, she says that he's in an important conference (in the anime, Gohan tells Goku he couldn't participate in the tournament because he has a conference that day). As Vegeta wonders who the mystery attendant in the cube is, Whis says that he's the strongest being Beerus has ever faced, Monaka. Goku greets Monaka and questions his name, which means nipples. Later, everyone is playing Shiritori. When Whis says the phrase, "Juri-Juri", Goku questions a "Juri-Juri" so Whis responds saying that it's a bird from his planet.
On the Nameless Planet, Goku is amazed along with the rest of the group seeing the size of the Super Dragon Balls. Upon landing, he notices Supreme Kai and Kibito and wonders why they're separate. While Supreme Kai is explaining the situation, Goku notices two beings, the Supreme Kai of Universe 6 and his attendant. Goku quickly rushes to meet them but is told that the written exam is beginning. When walking towards the stage, Goku recognizes a familiar face to which Vegeta exclaims is Frieza. It turns out not to be Frieza because Piccolo doesn't sense a evil presence from him. Goku also notices another fighter from Universe 6,Magetta, and wonders if he's a "Human".
The written exam is about to begin on the command of Vados. As Goku is about to take his seat to take the exam, he sees Cabba. Goku and Vegeta are recognized by Cabba to be a Saiyan and he also reveals that he's a Saiyan, which surprises them. Vegeta comments on Cabba's attire an says that the attire he's wearing resembles the style the Saiyans wore before getting taken over by Frieza, which Cabba doesn't seem to know Frieza. Vegeta asks Cabba what planet the Saiyans are based on in their universe and Cabba responds sayingPlanet Salad, the origin planet of the Saiyans. Cabba is curious if Planet Salad exists in Universe 7 but Vegeta says that it has been destroyed because of an internal conflict between Saiyans and he further explains what happens after that. Goku then asks Cabba where his tail is to which Cabba says that they had tails long ago but don't now because they evolved. Vegeta wonders if they're still a "warrior race" and Cabba says they are but they do not steal planet but their main objective is to get rid of evil doers. As Vados yells at them for not taking a seat, Vegeta demands that Cabba takes him to Planet Salad when he is able to and tells him not to worry because they do not steal planets any longer. Cabba agrees.
The exam is said to have ten simple questions to see what little knowledge the warriors have. After ten minutes, the results are in and Goku barely passes with a fifty-percent. However, their team is short of one character because Buu failed his, even spelling his name wrong (in the anime he falls asleep during it). Goku blames Vegeta for requesting such a thing. Goku is the first to fight because he wants to see how strong the Universe 6 team is, he even says it may end with him only. He is first matched against Universe 6's,Botamo. After the universe anthem is sang, the match begins, but as soon as the match begins, Goku is immediately rushed by Botamo. Goku is struggling to dodge his attacks and eventually gets hit. Beerus is wondering what Goku is doing but Goku says he's just trying to exercise his meal off.
Goku begins running in the ring while Botamo is trying to attack him. He even fires beams at Goku but they fail to connect. Botamo eventually is worn out so Goku takes advantage of this as he is done exercising his meal. Goku attacks Botamo but no one can see him move because he's moving at an immense speed. Goku is taking control in this match but Botamo isn't done because he has a surprise for Goku. Goku is attacking Botamo but he isn't taking any damage, returning quickly to the fight. Goku even fires a Kamehameha at Botamo but he takes it. Goku thinks of an idea to beat Botamo. He then pushes Botamo down and drags him to the edge of the ring. As Botamo tries to punch Goku after trying several times attacking him, Goku grabs his arm and throws him out of the ring, resulting in a ring out.
After taking out Botamo, Goku suddenly looks over at another one of Universe 6's fighters, Hit, who is not paying attention to the fight and has his arms crossed. Goku's next challenger is Frost. Before they begin their match, they both wish each other luck and shake each other's hands. As the Tournament Presentercommences the match, Goku is charged by Frost and they both attack and block each other's attacks in a rapid succession. Goku and Frost are on par with each other. Goku uppercuts Frost in the gut and kicks him, sending him to the arena floor. Goku assumes that Frost is trying to test his power but Frost says he isn't doing so. Goku is eager to see Frost transform into his final form but Frost wonders how he knew he could. Goku tells Frost that he fought someone similar to him and tells him that he should transform so he wouldn't be defeated without using his true power. Frosts takes the advice and transforms into his final form.
Goku is surprised at Frost's transformation and says he hasn't seen that form previously. Frost wonders if he in Universe 7 has beaten him but Goku doesn't want to say so Frost assumes he didn't. Goku and Frost then charge at each other and battle it out again. They both attack each other again until Frost fires a finger blast at Goku and it has Goku crashing to the ground. Goku immediately hops up, not taking serious damage. Goku still thinks Frost is hiding another transformation so he transforms into Super Saiyan. Goku has Frost terrified so he charges towards Frost. As he does so, Frost transforms into his true final form. Goku is glad to see the form he remembers. As a Super Saiyan Goku completely outclassed Frost's final form, with Frost unable to land a major blow. However Frost does manage to land a weak blow to Goku which instantly renders Goku dizzy and unable to fight, leading to Frost kicking Super Saiyan Goku clean out of the ring and to the arena floor and out of the tournament and Goku being defeated by Frost.
As Goku is unconscious, Chi-Chi hurries to check on him. Goku is admits his loss to Frost and then Frost suddenly congratulates Goku and raises his hand. Goku then goes to sit with his team. He explains to Beerus that he thought Super Saiyan was enough for Frost and didn't think he needed to push him any further. The third match is between Piccolo and Frost. Before Piccolo starts his match with Frost, Goku bluntly tells Piccolo that he's no match for Frost but he can damage him a little for Vegeta. Piccolo loses to Frost due to a ring-out but Jaco objects this and claims that Frost cheated. Frost is caught using a needle to ensure his victory. In the anime, Frost uses it to make sure he wins so he gets the prize and receives support from Champa. In the manga, Frost uses it because he felt threatened. After watching the fights between Frost and Piccolo and Vegeta and Frost, Beerus locates a wound on Goku's hand from Frost's poison needle, allowing Goku to be re-registered back into the tournament on the grounds of Frost cheating and violating tournament rules to defeat Goku. However, Beerus absolutely insists that Monaka will remain the trump card of the team no matter what, which leads to Goku taking Vegeta's place when he loses. Goku wants to speak with Monaka but Beerus continuously protects Monaka from speaking to Goku but Monaka is unconscious after seeing Goku's Kamehameha in the first match. Beerus gets Goku away from Monaka by telling him that if Monaka is disturbed during his meditation, he will incinerate him, regardless of position.
Goku goes back to watching the tournament where he see's Vegeta beat Magetta and goes on to fight Cabba. During the fight both Piccolo and Goku make note of Vegeta appearing to be training Cabba. After the fight Goku watches Vegeta get dominated by Hit. After figuring out Hit's abilities he enters the ring to fight Hit himself. After throwing himself at Hit a few times Goku manages to block one of Hit's moves, to which Hit though was a fluke and attacked again with his Time Skip and this time Goku draws blood from Hit and begins to go on the attack, countering Hit's time skipping ability by predicting where he is going to be, much to the annoyance of Vegeta. Hit, realizing his Time-Skip is useless is forced to fight seriously and Goku goes Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan and attacks Hit, forcing him to power up. Goku seeing that Hit is more powerful then he thought now unveils his new technique, the Kaio-Ken form while in Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan. Goku notes the chances of him doing it is roughly 10% and failure will likely kill him and explains what Kaio-Ken is. Goku says that Kaio-Ken in Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan is possible due to the enhanced ki control of the form and powers it up ten times and goes on the assault, totally outclassing Hit but notes his body is starting to give out so Goku fires a Kamehameha at Hit. Hit however survives and the fight continues.
