Tall is Goku. Goku is one the most famous characters in manga and anime history. Because the character is frequently spoofed or referenced in other media, Dragon Ball is instantly recognisable.
This fame comes with questions. The Dragon Ballfranchise is full of side content and bits that are often overlooked, so it’s easy to miss the answer. Fans often ask how tall Goku is, especially when he is in the form in Dragon Ball Z?
What is Dragon Z?
Dragon Ball Z was released in 1989. The Dragon Ball Z manga was written by and illustrated legendary Akira Toriyama. Dragon Ball Z adapts 325 chapters from the manga.
The story begins five years after the original anime ended. Goku is now an adult. Raditz, an alien from outer space, arrives and tells Goku that he and Goku have been brothers since they were the last members of an extinct race called Saiyans.
As the series progresses Goku and his friends will face new foes while learning more about themselves and the universe in which they live and their forgotten histories.
How tall is Goku?
We have an official confirmation that Goku is actually tall. Shueisha, Shueisha’s manga publisher and the company behind Weekly Shonen Jump, published two books in 2009 called Dragon Ball Super Exciting Guide.
These guides are updated and collected versions from the Daizenshuu series Dragon Ball guidebooks, which were published in the mid-90s.
Many Dragon Ball characters receive short biographies in the Character Volume book that provide information about their past, powers, and storyline. Goku, an adult, is listed at 5’9″ or 175cm in the Character Volume book. This is about average height for an adult male. These books confirm that Goku has grown significantly since Dragon Ball. Young Goku is listed at 4’1″ or 124 cm tall.

Kakarot, now known as Goku on Earth, was born in the middle of June 14, Age 737 on Planet Vegeta. This was during a period of great turmoil. Goku was sent to Earth as a baby in order to kill its inhabitants and make it a saleable planet. Earth’s inhabitants were considered weak so a baby Saiyan was chosen to complete the task.
He even transformed into a Great Ape during Earth’s full moon. Bardock, a Saiyan warrior of low class, died in the destruction of his home planet shortly after Goku left. Raditz, his older brother, was also missing and Vegeta, Nappa, and Frieza were all gone. It is not known what happened to Goku’s mother Gine, who was also killed by Frieza along with the entire Saiyan Race.
Bardock, his father, tried to rebel against Frieza on the day of his son’s birth to get revenge for the deaths of his comrades, wife, and children. But Frieza destroyed Planet Vegeta killing Gine and Bardock. Goku survived and was sent to Earth.
Goku was adopted by Gohan after he crashed-landed on Earth. He found him in the woods, and gave him his name. Goku was initially violent and unruly, and did not follow Gohan. However, he fell into deep ravines and struck his head. This severe head trauma nearly put him in a coma. He woke up and had lost all his Saiyan aggression.
Goku, an infant Saiyan who was originally programmed with extreme hostility, was sent to Earth by Grandpa Gohan as a Saiyan. He was aggressive and unruly when he was first found by Grandpa Gohan. However, this was only after he had been worked up by Gohan. After sustaining a head injury, Goku lost his instinctual aggression.
He is now known for his energetic personality and love of sport, especially eating and fighting. He is a remarkable individual who sees the good in people despite their actions. However, his ability to forgive his enemies has been criticised occasionally. Goku fights only to win and only allows his enemies to attack him when he turns his back.
He is able to control his incredible power while also being strengthened by his loyalty and morality. He is pragmatic and has a basic view of the world, but is not as aware of the wider world. Many people mistakenly believe that he is stupid.
However, once he understands the basics, he can pick up quickly. His greatest strength is his determination to succeed. He pushes himself past his limits and never gives up, even when all odds seem against him.
Goku is the main character in the entire Dragon Ball series. Goku is the image of his father Bardock. He has the same spiky, black hairstyle, dark eyes and facial features as him. He has soft eyes and a gentle demeanor. His mother Gine, however, has a lighter skin tone.
His distinctive physical characteristics, both in the real world and in the series are his black spiky hair. He has 3 spikes on his right side and 3 on his left side with some hair strands in between. (With the exception of Super, he has 5 spikes to the right and 4 on his left side).
Goku was born with the trademark tail of the Universe 7 Saiyans. It was long, prehensile and had brown fur. It was removed occasionally and regrown later, but by his teens, Kami had it permanently removed (to stop his Great Ape transformation, so Kami could safely bring the moon back).
Goku is a tall and muscularly built man of average height. His features include black eyes and black hair. He also has striking resemblances to his father.
Goku was 12 years old, and appeared shorter than he really was. People would be quite surprised to learn his true age. Goku didn’t experience any physical changes over the next few decades, other than his muscles becoming more prominent. At the age of 15, he started to show noticeable height increases.
He experienced a significant growth spurt at age 18 and grew almost as tall as his friends. His physique was well-built. Bulma, Amelia and others also consider him very handsome. His physical transformations made him virtually indistinguishable from his predecessors.
He was recognized only by his trademark naive personality, “trademark” hairstyle and signature personality. Goku reached 25 years old and had another growth spurt. He was similar in height and muscle mass to his human counterparts.
Why Does Goku’s Height Spark Debate?
Many fans disagree with the official height of Goku. Both the anime and manga can have very different character heights. This is particularly true for group shots, where character heights can vary slightly, especially when perspective considerations are taken into account. It is easy to assume characters are different heights than they actually are.
