One of the biggest things to happen in the world of Dragon Ball was when the Tournament of Power was announced! It was something unprecedented, and something that has never been done before to this scale previously.
It seemed quite frankly, almost impossible! Having 10 fighters from 8 Universe’s, 80 characters fighting all at once. It was definitely something that got old and new fans a like pumped up for what’s to come! There was a really big question heading in to this Tournament of Power tho.. Can we REALLY count on Goku winning the Tournament of Power?
Let’s face it, as of lately Goku hasn’t made a very impressive showing in the past few Tournaments. His last notable win came from his fight against Piccolo Jr. Even falling to Cell in the Cell Games (if you call it a Tournament), and walking out on the fight against Hit in the Universe 6 vs Universe 7 Tournament, which yes walking out is still considered a loss. It’s safe to say Goku doesn’t have a very great track record when it comes to Tournaments. In the 5 Tournaments up till the release of Super, Goku has technically only won 1 Tournament out of ALL of them, and that was the fight against Piccolo Jr fighting under the alias Ma’Jr.
Of course you can say, he lost some Tournaments due to other conflicts, like the 25th Tournament when Goku and the others had to drop out to fight Babidi, so it may not necessarily count.. But it does! For some reason, the writers have not given Goku the greatest record when it comes to Tournaments, so it’s hard to say that Goku will be the one to win this Tournament of Power! Yeah, this is higher stakes, and the fate of everyone is on the line.. There have been other times that their planet, and the fate of everyone was on the line and Goku wasn’t the one to come out on top.. Let’s see if the Tournament of Power is the Tournament to get another win under Goku’s Gi belt, or if his losing streak continues!
So what are your thoughts? Do you think Goku will be the one to win, or will his losing streak continue? Keep the conversation going by leaving your idea’s and opinions in the comments down below! As always, thanks for reading!
