Yeah, goku is crazy for an epic fight, but he knew what he was doing on cell saga.
I think Goku is just a crazy son of a popo, my theory he is struggeling between his saiyan blood and his human part( raised like a human and living with them etc) the saiyan part wanna fight full potential enemies but his human part needs to save a world so he is in a dillema.

He did want to protect Earth and his friends and he worked hard for that because that's how he was raised. He liked to fight strong enemies because of his Saiyan pride too so he put at risk the planet he wanted to protect multiple times just to see if he can beat the strongest enemy. Pretty much what @Bardock said in different words.I think all of this is stated at some point in the series though.
Was he? I mean yeah he knew that Gohan could beat Cell if he used his hidden potential, but that didn't stop him from being completely selfish by disregarding the fact his son didn't enjoy fighting like he did as well as being fully aware Gohan could and would get killed. Piccolo even called him out on that.Not really. I mean if he wanted to he could have killed Fat Buu on the spot with SSJ3, but he wanted the boys to do it. Same with Freeza. He could have killed him on the spot, but instead wanted to fight him at 100%. He even disregarded King Kai's plan and wanted to stay on Namek just so he could continue fighting Freeza. Oh, and there's the Cell example I used above.Either way, Toei is actually responsible for making Goku appear more righteous and such than what Toriyama originally made him out to be.
This bugs me though why give other peple a chance why you want to test your limits, like when cyber frieza came to earth he could of IT to earth and test his power again against frieza but he didnt, why though?
off topic....the ending of xenoverse.......did anyone else cringe when goku said "oopsy daisy"?
either that or....he is sadistic as fk
ThisFrom a young age we knew goku has an obsession with battle,i noticed this especially in the broly movie, i mean what other reason could a guy who getting his ass pounded in but laugh like broly was throwing pillows at him, while everyone else(especially vegeta) was scared out of their minds.he wants all the fights to be at their peaks he doesnt like 2 hitter quitters, fights like the one with nappa, the lower members of the ginyu force you could tell goku was bored, he didnt crack a smile once.my memory about GT is hazy but im pretty sure goku was smiling during the final fight of GT when he stood almost no chance alone.off topic....the ending of xenoverse.......did anyone else cringe when goku said "oopsy daisy"?
so goku is half rightious half not?
yeeeah, and in xenoverse when u fight goku and he is close to death he says something like: "even being dangerous, this fight still a lot of fun to me".
I thought it was pretty obvious Goku's not supposed to be a righteous hero. Also, I find it funny people are questioning it. Even if they did "hero him up" in the anime somewhat, it's really nowhere near as obvious as it is in the English dub, where they turned him into a generic Superman-wannabe.A lot of people think that he's showing mercy when he doesn't want to kill someone, but most of the time, he just wants to fight them again (or in Freeza's case, he just wanted to humiliate him). After all, it's been shown that he won't hesitate to kill when necessary (remember how he punched a hole through Piccolo Daimao's chest?).He neglects his family constantly, and isn't the kind of person who cares about any kind of justice on anything more than a personal scale.Even if he got a little more heroic in the Japanese version of the anime, it's still nowhere near as bad as his cliche'd "hope of the universe" speech from the dub.Goku himself even acknowledged this once, right before he died during the Cell arc. Something along the lines of "Tell your mother I'm sorry. I've always done as I wanted selfishly without thinking about anyone else."Now, that's not to say Goku doesn't care. He does. As Kame'senin put it: "A part of him does want to save them, certainly. But what it really is, is that he's excited to face an ever stronger opponent."So, yeah... Goku's just kinda a happy, child-like doofus.Which is why I switch to the Japanese audio. Too bad I'm still stuck with the bad subtitles. XDHe DID use it to return to Earth. Just not in this timeline, because he sensed Trunks intervening. Trunks mentions how Goku arrived and killed Freeza and his father in his timeline.Likeliest scenario. XD
This is actually the whole reason i like goku, he shows zero mental growth over the years, yet his physical growth is on the level of gods now.however most of the reason i think goku is like this is due to his heritage and the fact that as a child he took MMMMAAAYYYYYJJJJJOOOOORRRRR damage to the skull as a X month old baby. its safe to say goku is "different" due to this but since he is a saiyan i was as bad.
Not to mention the multiple times it mentions his pure heart, and that's in both the original Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z manga. He loves to fight, but I think his intentions are still mostly pure. Heck, one time an evil dracula-like thing tried to make him explode through the evil and his heart, and he wasn't able to find a smudge of wickedness on Goku.
At any rate, I wanted him to have the sense of being that rare guy who seeks only “to become stronger than before”, so much so that it feels like “there’s no one as pure as this person”. And while he does end up saving everyone as a result of that, he himself at least has a very pure sincerity about “wanting to become stronger”. What I wanted to depict the most was the sense that he might not be a good guy at all, although he does do good things as a result.
King Kai knew about how dangerous Vegeta and Nappa were so chances are he knew a lot about the Saiyans. I'm sure he also knew about Goku's origin, but didn't bring it up simply because he wasn't asked (filler doesn't count). As for Freeza not noticing Goku, that was kinda the whole point of Bardock and Gine sending him to Earth.Also, Cooler and Broli aren't canon so they don't count either.
If there's one thing that greatly annoys me about Goku is how he doesn't care one bit about his own family (Raditz, Bardock, and Gine).
