How old is Goku in the Dragon Ball Super?
Goku was 43-years-old during the end of Dragon Ball Super. Goku first appeared in Dragon Ball series as a 12-year-boy living in the mountains. However, he claimed to be 14 because of his poor counting. When Goku fought Tien Shien in the 22nd World tournament, he was 15-years-old. Then, after taking down King Piccolo, Goku went to Kami for training, where he spends a lot of time training in the Hyperbolic time chamber. He comes back as a young man to fight in the tournament against Piccolo Jr., and Goku was 18-years old then. But physically, he might be older, as he spent a lot of time training in the chamber. Goku then married Chi-Chi and welcomed his first son when he was 20-years-old.
Dragon Ball Z starts four years after Gohan’s birth, making Goku 24-years old while facing his older brother Raditz. Further, Goku faced the 30-year-old Vegeta a year after facing Raditz, making Goku himself age 25 (Goku is five years younger than Vegeta). Later, Goku went to Namek and defeated Frieza, the most feared tyrant of his Universe, at the age of 25. After defeating Frieza, Goku spent two years on Yardrat to learn his signature move, Instant Transmission. Therefore, when he came back to the Earth, he was 27-years old. Future Trunks warned them. Androids will attack Earth after three years. Thus Goku was 30-years-old when Goku fought against Androids and later died trying to kill Cell. Goku returned from the Other World after seven years for the Martial Arts Tournament, making him 37-year-old when he fought in the tournament later against Kid Buu.
Dragon Ball Super started four years after the Kid Buu arc when Goku was 41-year-old and working as a farmer. As a 41-year-old man, he achieved some magnificent feats like becoming a Super Saiyan God to fight against the God of Destruction, Beerus. Later, he fought against an evil counterpart of himself and then fought in the greatest tournament ever, where fighters came from eight different universes. Further, Goku also gained another new form, Ultra Instinct, during the tournament. The events of Super took place over a time of two years. Thus Goku was 43-years-old after the Tournament of Power.
Goku was 43-years-old during the end of Dragon Ball Super. However, he didn’t look like a man in his 40s, then let me remind you as our Prince of Saiyans, Vegeta, once said. The Saiyans are a race of warriors. Thus they grow slowly, as Goku looked like a 10-year-old when he was 15 in the first series. After Saiyan reaches adulthood, their growth slows down even more. Therefore, even though their age is growing each year but their physical growth is really slow compared to humans.
