Akira Toriyama’s all-time famous anime character Goku is everyone’s favorite from kid to adult person.
Most of the Dragon Ball fans admire Goku’s incredible superpowers and his secret techniques. His enthusiasm to become the strongest being and challenge someone who has greater power levels than him makes him adorable character.
Although Vegeta possesses nearly same power level as that of Goku, Goku’s newly attain transformations in every Dragon Ball season differentiate him from the other characters.
Since his very first Super Saiyan transformation in Frieza Saga to Ultra Instinct in Dragon Ball Super, Goku had developed a number of superpowers and some of them were his trump card which he used it at the most critical times. Thanks to Ultra Instinct transformation, Goku may have surpassed Universe 7 God of Destruction Beerus and actually becomes the strongest character of Dragon Ball franchise.
Saiyans’ upper strength and powers are still unknown as Vegeta said in the last episode of Dragon Ball Super that ‘Saiyans have no limits’ suggests they have potential to become Gods.
Over decades, Vegeta and Goku had fought a number of villains and the following techniques they usually used while fighting.
So here is a list of 10 Powers and Abilities Goku possessed.
10. SUPER KIAI
One of the mostly used attacked by Jiren in the Tournament of Power.
This attack is not a new one rather usually appeared throughout the Dragon Ball series. But Universe 11’s Jiren used it repeatedly in the Dragon Ball Super.
He doesn’t even need to use his other powers as he was series’s strongest character to date.
It’s a super technique which can be utilized without even using any body parts. Kiai affects the current air around opponents and produces shockwaves in the forms of punches to strike the opponents.
Goku and Jiren can be seen using Kiai technique only with their eyes without even moving.
Like punches, it can be hit as invisible kicks, powerful screams, explosive air bombs, etc.
9. SUPER TELEPORTATION
In Dragon Ball Super, Goku practically shows us how he had improved his teleportation ability so far.
Meanwhile, when Frieza resurrect once again and try to invade planet Earth, Goku, and Vegeta were doing training with Whis.
When Bulma inform Whis about the situation, Whis stated that even for him it would take around half hours to reach Earth. But Goku made a decision to use Instant Transmission technique.
But it was impossible for anyone because Goku was on the Beerus planet which is too millennium kilometers away from the Earth.
However, Goku advised that Gohan to power up so that he can sense his energy and could teleport back to Earth.
This was Goku’s super instant transmission yet in the history of Dragon Ball which you need to already remember that.
8. SUPER SPIRIT BOMB
Everyone aware of what triggers Goku’s Ultra Instinct ability. During Goku’s first fight with Jiren in 1-hour special, Goku tried his best to defeat Universe 11’s mightest Jiren. But didn’t even scratched him.
Hence left with the only option of using Spirit Bomb, Goku took his friends’ energy except Vegeta’s one and made gigantic Spirit Bomb which was enough to blow away entire arena stage.
We have seen Goku using Spirit Bomb number of times throughout the series of Dragon Ball.
He gathered energies from all the living organisms and makes the sphere shape Ki energy.
Goku had used Spirit Bomb first against Vegeta, later against Frieza, Kid Buu and lastly against Jiren.
Hence, in conclusion, Genki-Dama (Spirit Bomb) is listed as Goku’s one of most famous signature move which requires lots of time and energy to take effects.
7. DESTRUCTO DISC
One of the signature technique used by Krillin, now Goku has possession of it. According to Wiki, it does has more destructive powers than any other techniques.
While using this technique, Ki energy takes the shape of a razor-sharp disc that can cut through any objects.
Destructo Disc has many variations i.e., Destructo Disc Triple Blade, Hi-Speed Destructo-Disc, and the recent one is Destructo Disc Hexa Blade which was invented by Goku in Dragon Ball Super.
In his second time battle against Jiren, Goku used Hexa Blade technique which almost made Jiren t fall out from the arena stage in the Tournament of Power.
Even though this Ki energy appears to be irrelevant, it could be dangerous if it has the powers of slicing through anything.
6. HEALING POWERS
This ability was first introduced in Battle of Gods arc in which Goku attained Super Saiyan God state and fought with Universe 7’s God of Destruction Beerus.
In space fighting, when Beerus stabbed Goku, Saiyan fall into Earth’s orbit and when he remembered all his friends’ hope towards him, those injuries were a wipeout for an unknown reason.
Although it was never explained why did this happen, fans knew that it was Super Saiyan God state which helps Goku to recovered his wound.
According to WIKI, this form is capable of healing Saiyans’ severe injuries.
In the Tournament of Power also, when Master Roshi had beaten to death, it was Goku’s Super Saiyan Blue which allowed Master Roshi to recovered.
Without a doubt, it’s God ability which can only be used when Saiyans attained God’s transformation.
Originally belongs to Master Roshi, Kamehameha is Goku’s one of the frequently used signature move.
Even in Dragon Ball Super‘s Tournament of Power, he was seen using Kamehameha against his opponents.
When he attained half Ultra Instinct against Super Saiyan Kefla, he performed Kamehameha so splendidly which marked that one scene memorable one.
Dragon Ball’s boss Akira Toriyama tried very hard to make amazing poses while blasting Kamehameha and the best one we had just seen it in last season.
Inventor of this attack as I said earlier was Master Roshi who spend almost his fifty years to mastering it. But when Goku first observed this attacked, it was surprising that he perform it on his very first attempt.
Copying others techniques is his another hidden technique which he didn’t want to talk about.
Kamehameha has variation for example Atomic Kamehameha, Giant Kamehameha, Imitation Kamehameha, 10x Kamehameha, etc.
Hence even though Goku attain Ultra Instinct ability, it’s his signature technique and he should use it whenever there is a need.
Again it’s not like Goku was the inventor of this technique but in Dragon Ball Super anime, he used this ability number of times.
Kaio-Ken was first invented by King Kai and Son Goku was the first mortal being who had done it successfully.
If you search on the internet, you would find Goku has one strange ability and i.e. Mimicry. But I think it’s his natural ability to become the strongest person on Earth. To do this, he needs to learn every possible technique and abilities.
Kaio-Ken multiples Goku’s Ki energy along with his speed, powers, and durability. But as Goku said during Universe 6 arc, it would take a heavy toll on the body if not used it properly.
Hence Goku found a solution by combining with Super Saiyan Blue state.
Super Saiyan Blue states calm users’ mind and enables to control their Ki. Hence using Kaio-Ken along with SSB form makes possible to multiple users’ powers.
In the Dragon Ball Super anime, Goku used Kaio-Ken 20 times along with Super Saiyan Blue but as we know even this level of powers was not enough against Jiren.
3. GOD SPLIT CUT
One of the most powerful Ki energy after Destructo Disc which was introduced in Dragon Ball Super.
God Split Cut is an Energy Blade technique invented by Universe 10’s Zamasu and we know how dangerous this technique was.
This Ki energy takes the form of the sword which can cut anything and Zamasu used it to kill Goku, Chi-Chi, and Goten.
In Future Trunks Saga, Goku Black and Zamasu were seen using God Split Cut several times.
Like as I said earlier, Goku wants to learn every possible techniques and ability and this thing is one of them.
When Goku and Vegeta fused together and became Vegito, they transform into Super Saiyan Blue and battle against fused Zamasu.
Vegito went toe-to-toe with fused Zamasu but things didn’t go well. When it’s about a time when villain tried to kill him using sword energy, Vegito mimicry it and used God Split Cut against him.
That was the first time we had seen him using God Split Cut. Thanks to Zamasu, Goku now has one more insane ability which might be useful in the next Dragon Ball series.
Dragon Ball Super‘s one of the strongest ability to date used by God of Destruction to destroy inhabited planets.
Hakai is the power of destruction only owned by Gods of Destruction and candidates who will become next God of Destruction.
Hakai was Dragon Ball Super most powerful and important ability which was performed continuously in Tournament of Powers by Toppo.
Beerus was the first character to use Hakai which is also called as Destruction energy.
When Beerus, Whis, and Goku visit Universe 10 to investigate evil plans of Zamasu, Beerus used Hakai to kill him instantly.
I think that’s when Goku copied this technique and added to his list of superpowers. Although still, he did not use it in anime series, in the manga world, he did use it.
In Dragon Ball Super manga, during Goku’s final battle against Fused Zamasu, Saiyan transformed into Perfected Super Saiyan Blue state and concentrated all of his energy to his hand which destroyed almost half of Fused Zamasu’s body without doing anything.
Goku officially still have to perform this attack in the anime, but it seems that Vegeta may be the one who would use Hakai technique as he transcended into Super Saiyan Blue Evolution.
In other words, it could be Perfected Super Saiyan Blue state where stamina flow has improved.
1. ULTRA INSTINCT
Since Goku and Vegeta started their training with Whis, series consistently teasing us about Ultra Instinct. But we didn’t see it coming.
Ultra Instinct is the strongest yet ability which firstly introduced in the 1-hour special Goku vs Jiren fight.
However at that time, Goku attained it imperfectly but at the end of episode 130, Goku did mastered it.
It is not any usual Super Saiyan transformation rather most advanced mental state and ability which is difficult to master even for Gods of Destruction.
During Goku-Vegeta’s training period, Whis said,
Overthinking is limiting your fighting. When you rely on thoughts for physical action, you lose precious fighting time. Your end goal should be to master the ability to have each part of your body move independently of the other parts. But I admit this is exceedingly difficult; In fact, not even Lord Beerus has mastered it, and he’s a god.”
We ignore the fact that Whis was explaining about Ultra Instinct. And this was the reason why Vegeta unable to attained Ultra Instinct even it seems to be during his battle against Jiren.
To attain this state, the user needs to clear their mind and thoughts before acting. Each of their body parts must think on their own so that there is no need for thinking while fighting.
I think that’s what Goku did when he bears the hopes of his family and friends and only focused his fight with Jiren.
In summing-up, out of all these 10 superpowers, this is without a doubt, Goku’s strongest and most powerful ability yet.
So these are Son Goku’s 15 Powers And Abilities which he used it in Dragon Ball Super.
