** He beats Piccolo with all his limbs disable by flying. ''No'' one knew he could do this and Goku held it back throughout the entire match.

* Goku's battle with Kid Buu culminates in him launching a Genki Dama, only to have Buu push it back as Goku's stamina gives out. All hope seems lost when Vegeta remembers that Namek's dragon can still grant them one more wish. Dende use that wish to recharge Goku to full power and the battle is his. Goku says the greatest thing any character could say at that moment:
--> '''Son Goku: ''' THANKYOU DRAGONBALLS!

* In the Cell Saga, Mr. Satan is ready to leave the place with his students, his arm candy and the TV crew when suddenly they hear a voice. They turn and see 16's head who pleads to them to take him to Gohan so he can talk to him. Everyone is convinced that this is a bad idea, yet 16 keeps asking this of Mr. Satan. Everyone says to Mr. Satan that he should not do it, since Cell is standing next to Gohan and can kill him, and that no one will think less of him if he decides to walk away. His response? "Leave me alone. All these nobodies out there and even now a kid is fighting Cell, it would be shameful of a World Champion to run away." He then proceeds to cross hell to get 16 close to Gohan. Awesome. To be fair to Cell, he probably wasn't trying his best, but still, Mr. Satan did manage to survive that and the carnage wrought by the battle.

* He may not be all that strong (although to be fair, he's still one of the more powerful pure-humans in the series, but he's [[OvershadowedByAwesome waaaay outclassed by all of the aliens and androids and whatnot]]...), but he definitely has the heart of a hero. Even Goku has said he deserves to be called the Champ, both in the aforementioned ''GT'' moment above and in the aftermath of the Kid Buu battle with its various Hercule moments at the top of the list.

*** To be fair to Yamcha, he gave a pretty good performance against the Saibaman, boasted to be as strong as Raditz, the StarterVillain who gave Goku and Piccolo a hard time. Yamcha technically ''won'', and easily: its just that he let his guard down and the Saibaman was a SoreLoser so it [[TakingYouWithMe decided not to play fair]]. Sure that scene epitomizes his ButtMonkey status, but it had nothing to do with Yamucha being exceptionally weak in comparison, and it's unlikely any of the Z-Fighters present would have survived if a Saibaman did that to him.

* In a series where, increasingly, the only thing that matters is who you punch and how hard, Gohan has one of the few moments of genuinely ''outsmarting'' a villain. He's stuttering and terrified as he does it, but when he accidentally steals the 4 star Dragon Ball from Vegeta on Namek and then runs into him, he manages to bluff his way out. He tells Vegeta the Dragon Radar is a watch, and Vegeta, in his arrogance, believes him. Vegeta still smacks him around because Vegeta's an ass, but Gohan takes it and keeps the Dragon Ball away from him. The fact that it's the ''four star'' makes it all the sweeter.

*** He gets another one who he turns SSJ at the tournament & attempts to save Videl from Spopovitch (but Yamu interrupts). Gohan then tells Spopovitch that the next time they meet, it's gonna be "you and me."

* Kami gets one -- and of all times, in the Garlic Jr. Saga. He has to journey into the underground depths of his home, where he is apparently absolutely not allowed, in order to save earth. While there, he encounters the deranged souls of the former guardians, who attempt to kill him for going there, despite his intentions. He is tortured for several episodes in a row, barely clinging to life. Finally, realizing the danger at hand, the former guardians heal him of the damage done to him. The peaceable Popo, with great relief, realizes that they're going to be let go, but Kami stands up ''screaming insults'' at the people who had just barely decided to let him live. That's pretty epic, and the cheesy mildness of his words somehow only makes it all that much cooler.
--->'''Popo''': You've been pardoned for coming here. They've forgiven you!\\
'''Kami''': (looks winded for a moment, then stands up scowling) Oh, yeah? Well, I haven't forgiven them. GET A LIFE, YOU STUBBORN OLD FOOLS!

* 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.
