And to tell the truth, we are not surprised given Goku’s personality.
Goku is probably one of the most recognized fictional characters in the world, and we are not only talking about the protagonist of one of the best animes in history, but also this character is already considered part of popular culture, precisely because quite a few people who have not seen this series know him, and are perfectly capable of identifying him. Even so, it is clear that we are talking about a very particular character, who stands out in many aspects, both for better and for worse, and if we are talking about the latter, probably The first thing that comes to mind is neglect with his familywhich showed that he is quite selfish.
Now we have been able to know, thanks to Screen Rant, that this was not the first time that Goku demonstrated his egoism, and it is that in the original Dragon Ball already made this clear to usalthough in this case the affected one was the grandfather Gohan.
Those who only saw Dragon Ball Z may not be aware, or only know it by ear, but Goku at the time had a tail like all Saiyans, but as it also happens to all, this was his weak point. For this reason, Grandpa Gohan himself insisted, before he died, that he had to train just that part of his body, but our protagonist ignored it. Later, when Grandpa Gohan was revived to fight Goku for a day, the former realized that he didn’t take note of his advice, so he reminded him again, although in this case Roshi also hears the words.
That’s why it’s so frustrating that in chapter 127 of the Dragon Ball mangaGoku mentions that he has been training his tail and that it has made him stronger, but he attributes all the credit to Roshi, leaving Grandpa Gohan completely aside, who had twice warned him that he had to do just this.
Goku: a very particular protagonist
Goku is one of the most particular protagonists of the anime, and it is that although he is a candidate to be one of the most powerful characters in Dragon Ball, he is also the one who usually does the most nonsense, something that is not only due to his lack of intelligence , but on many occasions he seems to deliberately ignore the advice of certain people, even if they are very good and they will end up benefiting you.
