* In ''Cooler's Revenge'', Goku ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zp6ASmA88S8 blasts Cooler into the sun.]]'' Having {{Deftones}}' "Change (In the House of Flies)" on the Funimation dub's background makes the ass-kicking twice as awesome.

* Also from the Red Ribbon Army Arc, Goku saves his friends from the Pirate Cave by using a Kamehameha to jet propeller their stall submarine. Made even better by the fact that Bulma attempted to ''leave'' Goku behind because he was taking too long to get the Dragon Ball and the cave was collapsing, and Krillin and Bulma were both in panic mode while he remained perfectly calm.

* In a later episode, the Red Ribbon Army descends on a small island, inhabited by an old man and a girl. Unfortunately for them, that old man is Master Roshi, who [[CurbStompBattle beats the shit out of the whole crew in short order,]] only stopping when the remaining soldier takes Launch as a hostage. (Although Launch then sneezes, [[SplitPersonality transforms]], and kicks his ass too.)

* Goku's epic defeat of King Piccolo. Something about that moment, with so little left to lose, being all but broken, with one final gamble left... and bursting ''straight through'' the Demon King with quite possibly the most EPIC ki-powered punch ever. What seals the moment? The honest joy the young Goku expressed as he ''somehow'' succeeded in felling what was at that time, ''the single most powerful foe he had ever faced''. Best yet, he defeated Piccolo using his own original technique. It is the ''only'' time Goku invented a technique.

* Tao is one of the first villains to hand Goku an absolute defeat-in the manga, Goku didn't even manage to land a hit on him before being smacked away. He then blasts Tao with a Kamehameha- which has absolutely no effect other than destroying Tao's clothes and pissing him off. Goku is understandably freaked out before being zapped by a Dodonpa. If not for the Dragon Ball blocking the shot, the series could have ended right there.

** Tao boiling himself an egg: he takes a raw egg, fills a bathtub of water, heats the water until it boils ''with his ki'', and then ''he takes a bath in the boiling water with the egg in his hand'', until the egg is cooked. And he does it ''casually''.

* Earlier in the series, Goku's transformation into a Great Ape is mostly seen asa scary moment. But it's more of awesome than scary when he transformed into a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJP60cqV2ow Golden Great Ape]].

* He is also the only character in the entire series to be returned to life not by the Dragon Balls. One of the ''gods'' of the universe brought him back by giving their own life, something that has ''never'' happened before since no Kai has ever given their life to a mortal. Goku is so awesome that the gods wanted him back.

*** And *drum roll* There's the final climatic battle between Gohan and Cell who injures him after covering for Vegeta after Cell knocks him out. It's Kamehameha vs Kamehameha. Gohan is somewhat reluctant to unleash his full power on Cell because he thinks he'll destroy the world and is doubting himself. In the anime everyone helps him out until he finds the power to destroy Cell. Cell tosses aside the rest of Z-fighters like ragdolls and is nearly about to win until Vegeta steps in, badass, and strikes Cell from behind giving Gohan the chance to kill Cell. The SlasherSmile on Gohan's face as he's blasting cell away with a ONE-HANDED Kamehameha is simply orgasmically satsifying.

* Back in the original series, the pirates who once lived near the area where the Kame House now is are made of awesome, even after having long died out. Their base is a submarine cave that nobody could find until a Dragon Ball materialized inside and Bulma had the Dragon Radar to lead her... And she ''still'' didn't find the main entrance. The base is also protected by traps that are simple as they're effective, with Blue's platoon being casually slaughtered by ''the first one of a secondary entrance''. And if you managed to reach the base proper and their submarine port you had to deal with the security robot, with a powerful right arm with a formidable sword in his right, [[ArmCannon a machine gun built in his left]] with a [[KillItWithFire flamethrower]] under it, [[ShockAndAwe a tail that delivers electric shocks]], [[NighInvulnerable armour tough enough to shrug off repeated attacks from Goku and Krillin and]] [[CarFu being ran over by a fuel truck]] [[StuffBlowingUp that then exploded]], and rocket boots that allow it to run on water and ''dodge cannon fire at point blank'' (Bulma and Krillin tried just that. The robot did a FlashStep). It would have killed Goku, Krillin and Bulma had Blue not helped by removing the rock that had smashed Goku's tail, and even then it was close and it took Goku punching it with a fall to increase the strength of his attack to finally break through its armour.

** In the pirate cave Blue was electrocuted by a gigantic electric eel that then started constricting him. Blue, while still being electrocuted, ''grabbed the eel and strangled it with one hand''.

** Cell cementing his status as not only a MagnificentBastard but a ManipulativeBastard as well by pulling of an excellent BatmanGambit against [[spoiler: Vegeta. Cell, in his semi-perfect form, [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown was getting dominated by Vegeta]], who for the few episodes that the fight last for, [[ADayInTheLimelight had become the strongest character in the show]] due to becoming [[HourOfPower an Ascended Super Saiyan]]. Because he was made up of the cells of Vegeta and other pure blooded Saiyans such as Goku, Raditz and Nappa, he knew that Vegeta's greatest weakness is his pride and that a Saiyan would be willing to go to great lengths for good battle because they love a challenge and love to fight. Semi-Perfect Cell then uses that weakness to manipulate Vegeta by telling him that if he had the chance to reach his perfect form he would become a worthy adversary, and he claims that Vegeta would be no match for him. Vegeta, [[BloodKnight who hungers for a challenge, any chance to prove that he is the best no matter what the risk and thrives for any good fight in general]], lets his ego get the best of him [[HonorBeforeReason and falls for Cell's trap]] by [[NiceJobBreakingItHero stepping back from battle, allowing Semi-Perfect Cell an open opportunity to absorb Android 18, so that he will become a worthy opponent and actively helped him by stopping Trunks from interfering so he could absorb Android 18]]. Cell eventually finds and absorbs Android 18 and achieves his perfect form and then proceeds to [[NighInvulnerability no sell]] [[TheWorfBarrage EVERY attack Vegeta throws at him]], [[CurbStompBattle kicks Vegeta’s ass senseless with little effort]] and [[LampshadeHanging rubs in Vegeta’s face how stupid he was to help him achieve his perfect form and become more powerful and how he should have killed him when he had the chance]]]].

** Cell also survives his own sacrifice explosion because of his regeneration and gets a zenkai boost. The first thing he does after killing Trunks is breaking Super Saiyan 2 Gohan's arm. The opponent that humiliated Cell and even got Cell scared. Cell couldn't even faze him before.

** Once he was done with Dabura, Buu shows off his speed by catching up with Gohan effortlessly, who had grabbed the Supreme Kai and was running for his life. He then ''hammers'' poor Gohan into the ground and picks a part Supreme Kai, the head god of the Dragon World. When Gohan attempted to intervene, he's blasted by an energy wave that nearly killed him and would have sent him into space if the Supreme Kai hadn't stopped it. Nonetheless, he knocked Gohan's energy so low that everyone thought he was dead.

** Buu's entire ''fight'' with Vegeta. At this point, Vegeta is stronger than Gohan was seven years ago and fought Goku to a draw. Buu took everything Vegeta had and didn't lose any energy at all. In the Japanese version, Vegeta asked if Buu was an immorality. Once Buu was done playing with Vegeta, he rips off a part of his own blubber and successfully wraps Vegeta in it, completely immobilizing him. He then body slams into Vegeta and beats the ever loving crap out of him. Vegeta would have died there if Goten and Trunks hadn't rushed in to save him.

** When Gotenks' fusion expires and Buu reverts to a weaker form, Goku is finally relieved that Gohan can handle him... only for Buu to reveal that he had planned for THIS too. Cue a piece of him surprising and absorbing Gohan.

** The mere fact that he out-gambit everyone despite his crude manner and his dumb way of speaking. He played on Gotenks' pride to absorbed him and kept him alive because he felt Gohan from the world of the Kais. Even when Goku arrives to throw a wrench in his plans, he took it in stride and set things up to absorb Gohan once he time ran out. He would have outright won if Emma hadn't sent Vegeta at the last second and he had no way to plan for that or the story breaker Vegeto was.

** He learns the Supreme Kai's teleportation technique from seeing it once and when the Earth was about to explode. He then uses that technique along with his endless regeneration to move planet to planet, destroying them, regenerating, teleport, and nuke another world. This is the first villain we truly saw that could truly destroy the universe and there was nothing to stop him.
