Goku beats Superman by KiddSketch Goku beats Superman by KiddSketch
Don't shoot! Don't shoot!

Ok, there's a reason I drew this. My friends and I once debated whether Goku or Superman would win in a fight. We eventually got to a discussion of trying to figure out what Superman's powerlevel would be, and the winner would be decided from there. Eventually, we figured perhaps over 1000, but less than 12000. Then there's Goku who's like 10000000+.
So yeah...I drew this. I'm one of the biggest Superman fans I know, so watch this space...because I'll be drawing another one...soon I think.

Nice. But concerning Superman vs Goku...not even a fair fight. Superman's basically and omnipotent being. Goku would get squashed like a bug.

actually superman would win: superman spent 15 minutes in side the sun and suns surface is + 5505 C and the core is much much hotter. Superman hits with a force of a supernova (200,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 megatons) or (6.6 quintillion tons) and supernovas are known to destroy other stars that are much bigger than our son. Superman took a hit of a 15 suns IN HIS FACE and survived it. Also superman goes much faster than speed of light 9,400,000,000 km/h when light goes as fast as 1 079 252 849 km/h and if you would be able to go at the speed of light everything would appear to be stopped (goku goes speed of 2,500,000,000 km/h)

a lot of numbers there lol. not trying to start a hate filled fight but I do enjoy a good verses debate. the surface of the sun is 4000 kelvin (3726.85 Celsius) but that doesn't mean anything because superman absorbs solar energy so of course it wouldn't hurt him. a supernova is the destruction of a star so it in its self isn't destroying the star. as for speed its never been suggested as to how fast goku can move. we do know he eveades and punches much faster than he can fly , he was even evading lighting as a child (not the speed of light but pretty damn close and we know hes a lot faster as an adult) plus i'm pretty sure he got hit a few times in that training montage, lighting can be as hot as 50,000 k that's much hotter than the surface of the sun . odd I know but that's anime for ya. bassed on on feats it would make more sense for superman to fight brolly (if you can get over the fact that he's from a movie. hell there's so man different versions of superman I think its about time people let go of that only original works thing.

Recently rewatched Justice League Unlimited. Superman lets loose on Darkseid. That seriously made me considertaking this down and redrawing based on Superman's line to Darkseid....

"I feel like I live in a world made of cardboard. Always taking care never to break something, to break some one. Never allowing myself to lose control even for a moment, or someone could die"

Considering this, Goku is definitely someone Superman could let loose on.

Arrghhh the naive kid who drew this so many years ago. If only I knew now what I knew then what I know now

Being the artist of this picture, and looking at what the writers of DC with Superman are doing today as opposed to when this was drawn...I think I need to sit down and redraw. But I'll also have to think about this and identify properly the limits of each character before coming to a new conclusion.

Now before everyone jumps on me and tells me what I should draw and for those people who did say that I got it wrong, I've explained how the conclusion was reached way back whenever it was this was drawn, so I won't be repeating that.

We've now got a different Superman than the one that was drawn here. This was early Post Crisis on Infinite Earths Superman. While effectively the same character, post-Infinite Crisis Superman is definitely a more powerful version.

Goku on the other hand, I'll take him as at the end of Dragonball Z post-Majin Buu.

There are the lines I'm drawing. Rethinking shall commence.

Hey,thats bullshit, HyperZergling,he can destroy the moon if he wanted too. dexter-A,I'm sorry but I'm just really sick of these guys underestimating the man of steel. The DC is beginning to bring Superman's powers back to pre-crisis levels nowadays. And if he flies closer and closer to the sun, he gian a hell of a lot more power, as it explains in the comic!

Superman's powerlevel is less than 1000, because remember that Piccolo easily destroyed the moon and his powerlevel was below 1000 at the time.

WRONG WRONG.

Supes has got it covered. But!!!

Goku doubles his power level each time he survives a fight.

And having to fight with Vegeta most of the time, I think he's learned how to weasel out if his nearly trampled...

not that I'm saying He would but Goku's strong desire to beat what's standing his way of Protecting Earth is enough to say he'd weasel out when Supes pummels him @ 1st.

Ok now, Superman is kinda BS and not very interesting, but he'd win easily.
He can hold 20 quintillion tons (whatever that means). Goku was struggling to lift weights that were like, 40 tons each or something? I forgot, but it was near the end of the series when he was training (I believe, it was in the time when he was dead, before being revived). Around book number 40 I think.


Superman can destroy a galaxy by sneezing. Now, even if the sheer force of the blast didnt kill Goku on the spot (which it would), Goku would die right after that, since sayans can not survive in space.
Superman wouldnt even have to go through that trouble: he could just drag goku into space and that would kill him right there without even having to fight much.

I really don't care much for Superma, but lets face it, he'd win easily.

Hahaha!! It's all good man. Thanks for the comments. I enjoy a good debate about this topic.

Just following on from your research comment though, our research (my friends and I) was basically taking different scenarios from each hero's past and trying to see whether or not one could do the other. We also ignored any Pre-Crisis stories where Superman could move planets and fly faster than light because that wasn't the version of the character being used at the time.

Well, there's a little insight for you of how this drawing came about, but I do admit, I may be revisiting this drawing and having another go at it and maybe might come up with something a bit different.

Thanks again!!

That is pre crisis which no longer exists. Goku takes solar system busting energy attacks and isn't disintegrated. Superman can't even destroy a planet currently.

Goku takes near, or around PLANET busting energy attacks.

Superman is made TO SAVE! Of course he doesn't have planet destroying attacks, HE ISNT A DBZ CHARACTER! Currently, superman can survive planet busting attacks, or a planet explosion.

Superman can take energy blasts like nothing, and is faster than Goku. Goku would need a miracle to hit him. Seeing that Goku doesn't go FTS, because nothing has been shown yet, he wouldn't hit Supes.

Superman is not faster then Goku. Goku has instant transmission. He can be anywhere instantly. And Goku can take a lot more then planet busting, he takes around solar system busting attacks past the cell saga. Superman can't do much to Goku because he doesn't have the strength to destroy even a single planet.

:iconal5ez:
Al5ez Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2008
Yes true he does have instant transmission, but it wouldn't work when fighting Superman because he needs to lock on a ki signature to use it. Superman is Faster than light when it comes to flying, and reactions. Maybe even fighting.

Really, show me an attack the blew up the solar sysetem. Everything in DBZ is planet busting, nothing more.

NO OFFENSE BUT ARE YOU EVEN READING WHAT I'M WRITING? Superman can lift 20 Quintillion tons. He's taking the equivalent of a million megaton bombs and he can lift a building and a mountain.

SUPERMAN isn't another unoriginal DBZ character. ONLY DBZ characters and villains in the DCU are made for destroying planets. Superman does have heat vision to cover a planet though.

Superman is faster than Goku if he can't use Instant transmission. He wouldn't even feel a ki blast from Goku, he probably wouldn't even feel a punch. IT would knock him back if it actually connected but it wouldn;t leave him damaged much.

Goku can't touch Superman.

Cell was stated to be able to blow up a solar system. I can show you an image of Z char's busting galaxies but no I can't get my hands on a solar system one. Goku and everyone else became stronger then Cell after that arc was over which puts them in solar system busting range. Like I said before If you can rearrange an entire planet with punches then you can go head to head with someone like Superman.

A bomb would have absolutely no effect on a Z char. Nukes hurt Superman. I really think its the other way around. Your not listening to anything I'm saying. Do you even know how much energy is packed into a single energy blast of an upper tier Z character. Freeza at 1% of his power could evil dust an entire planet and everyone is much stronger then him at the end of the series. Z characters are different then comic book characters. They can focus all their energy into one point otherwise they would destroy the entire planet just by powering up.

Sorry but your an idiot if you think Superman can take those kinds of attacks continuously.

DBZ is way past FTL they were already breaking the sound barrier in DragonBall. But if you choose to not beileve that then whatever. You still can't get around the fact that Goku is faster then Superman because of instant transmission. Ki is life energy. Every thing in creation has Ki including Superman. And also Goku doesn't have to lock onto Superman's ki signature in order to teleport around him.

Ok, first of all, CEll was lying! He was trying to scare Gohan into thinking that he could so gohan would lose strength. Oh really, GALAXIES? Id like to see an official image. DO you know how large a solar system is?

[link]

Now look at Earth. When has Goku ever rearranged planets? never.

Nukes hurt Superman? Wrong. Theres a scan to a pic where Superman flies through a nuke unharmed.

Wow, you are a dbztard. You overpower characters so much. First off, Frieza has blown up a planet. WHERE DO YOU COME UP WITH THESE NUMBERS? 1% yeah,...right.

DBZ is no where near FTL. Show me a scan of them going FTL. They use instant Transmission too much to actually see how fast they go.

Yes, ki is life energy, THEY DONT USE KI IN THE DCU. And yes he does, he needs a signature to read it.

See, superman has survived waaay more than what goku can put out.

As you've said, they can focus ALL they're power on one point. Superman can easily dodge a kamehameha wave. And ki blasts would have little to no effects on Superman.

I'm sure shaking off the explosion of a good sized planet while in the middle coutns for something.


Here's something I posted on the forums...:

"his is getting old

OK! all you peeps saying goku would finish the great kal el with ease are clearly going off the wrong knowledge. you're all probably going off that pussy ass dean caine, christopher reeves and brandon routh s**t. the fact of the matter is this...

All the following are based off the Superman Comics + Movies + Series, DBZ Anime Series (Goku WITHOUT the help of his fellow peers (NO fusion, NO sensu beans, NO hyberbolic time chamber etc and Superman WITHOUT the help of his justice league mates and... loise lane))

Superman - Dies once at the hands of Doomsday: Brute force and strength, however this was only created because Superman had no opponent that could defeat him. The man is literally impenatrable excluding kryptonite.

Goku - Dies like 5 times in the DBZ series. ALSO in each saga he requires the help of his buddies to overcome the enemy. He beats freiza cuz krillin dies and he has a fit, he beats Buu with a Genki Dama (Spirit Bomb) which can only hurt those without a pure heart (useless against Supes), he didn't even beat Cell and he needed fusion with Vegeta to overcome Omega Shenron.

Superman - Faster then a speeding bullet? WRONG! it is a FACT that Supes is 99% the speed of light, that amount of speed on Goku's body would tear him to shreads. It is a FACT that Superman is fast enough to be in two places at once!

Goku - Slower then Gotenks who took a few minutes to fly around the entire planet, Supes has the ability to alter the Time Space continuem.

Superman - Can punch a hole in the universe

Goku - Couldn't even punch a hole through Brolly

Superman - Ages slower, can survive in space, is immune to diseases, infections etc.

Goku - Techniqually dies of a fatal heart disease (if it weren't for Trunk's time travel) Basically Goku is not immune to diseases and infections, much less life span. Superman - It is a FACT Superman at his best can lift over 40 Billion tons (juggle planets, alter time etc) Goku - Struggles with 50 ton

Superman - Does not lose power or energy, is fuelled by the sun. Can literally fly into the centre of a yellow/red sun and gain power.

Goku - Lets be honest, Goku is strong, but he isn't the type for the centre of a sun. That would be like walking into a Spirit Bomb... you just don't do it. We've talked about strength, speed, durability and power. Now lets talk Enegry Blasts

Superman - Laser eyes! wooh! It is a FACT the heat he blasts from his eyes are enough to melt ANY substance in the universe, it could cut that Z Sword like it was butter. Supes can freeze anything with his breath, providing he has the time to blow it out, he can bring any moving object to an icey hault.

Telekenesis: things within his Telekenesis range (roughly arms length) are movable by his mind (explains why he can fly).

X-Ray vision: he can see through anything other then lead (not too usefull).

Goku - The amount of moves and special powers Son Goku has would require a few pages to list, so we'll stick to the basics. Kamehameha! The world's most famous energy (ki) manipulating power move! It can litterally destroy solar systems. So what!? Supes can survive a blast that can destroy half a galaxy, which makes you wonder, is the Kamehameha even powerful to penetrate Superman (who can take a bullet to the eyeball lol) Whose to say an energy blast wouldn't be absorbed by Supes.

So Goku can go SSJ4, big woop, he would slap Supes around a fair bit, but would he damage or even hurt superman, no. As long as the sun is there, Superman lives forever. Kryptonite is un-usable because it is not one of Goku's abilities.

Speed 2 - Everyone seems to think Goku would take the cake on speed because of his instant transmission, but the truth is, Goku cannot I.T. somewhere without sensing a KI energy of where he's going (depending on how far away). Considering 99% speed of light: thats over 296 794 533 m/s and probably accelerating. It would be a plain miracle if Goku could land a single hit on Superman.

NOT The Human Body - Goku bleeds... Superman does not (again except for doomsday but that is explained)

Willpower - Goku takes the cake on this one. Goku, no matter what, no matter how hard it gets, will not never no way no how give up. Superman has been made volnerable by his heart and love for loise lane. he has been drivin to social isolation and depression to the point where he gives up his powers to be with the one he loves. This is possibly Superman's only weakness along with Kryptonite, Magic and Batman (yes you read correct, read bellow)

Superman vs. Batman - I know it's not what this thread is about but i'll bring it up anyway, in the Supes vs the Bat comics, Batman actually beats superman, silly isn't it. Supes could just laser his head off.

Magic!? - In the justic league series, Wonder Woman's magic sword cuts superman.

OUTCOME - By way of 1 vs. 1 / Peek performance vs. Peek performance etc. Superman is too fast to be hit, is too tough to be damaged, is to inpenatrable to bleed. Goku can fire energy blasts, which will most likely not damamge Supes, for his energy is from the sun, which Goku will not destroy because of the humans living on eart. Superman grabs Goku around the waste, and with all his might holds hime tight. Takes him out into space and then suffocates him. Sorry Dbz fans, i like Goku but this is just the way it is. For God sake its SUPERMAN! the world's most famous super hero, no man/woman is greater.

done and dusted, man of steel wins, get over it!"

Ok, I had a look.

You do have a point, but based on those pictures, I'm guessing that was all Silver Age Superman, pre-Crisis where Superman seemed to have no limits to his powers.

When I drew this picture, it was based on a post-Crisis Superman ([link]) whose superpowers were taken down a bit.

Though since I haven't picked up a comic book for awhile, I'm not quite sure where his current power levels are at. So I guess, point taken, but not fully agreed.

Those pictures were cool to look at though :)
