Trivia. 'Son Gokū' (孫悟空) is the Japanese on'yomi rendering for 'Sun Wukong', the iconic legendary character from the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West known as the Monkey King and is also used for the character with the same name from the Dragon Ball series.
Sun WukongAccording to the story, Goku was born with a monkey's tail, which reflects a mythological connection that is not accidental. 'Son Goku' is the Japanese name for the Monkey King (Sun Wukong) from the classic 16th-century Chinese novel called 'Journey to the West', which Dragon Ball was loosely based on.
Goku's family kanji, 孫, pronounced son and meaning "descendant", stands for the families' surname (Son Goku). Gohan wears this patch in early Dragon Ball Z as a large patch on the front of his tunic. Gohan (child)
Sun WukongServing as the main protagonist of the series, he is based on Sun Wukong (known as Son Goku in Japan and Monkey King in the West), a main character in the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West (16th century), combined with influences from the Hong Kong martial arts films of Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee.
HanHan (ハン, Han) was a shinobi from Iwagakure and the jinchūriki of the Five-Tails, Kokuō.
Kakarot is his Saiyan name, his literal birth name given by his biological father when he was born on Planet Vegeta. Vegeta knew about Goku and where he was sent as a baby, so he knows his real name.
Sun Wukong is widely regarded as the strongest divine demon in history. As one of the most enduring Chinese literary characters, Sun Wukong has a varied background and colorful cultural history. He takes the throne and calls himself Monkey King.
Answered 6 years ago. Vegeta has known Goku as Kakarot, which is his saiyan name, since before he was sent to Earth. The name Goku was given to him by Gohan, who brought him up on Earth, and that is the name everyone else knows him by. FYI, Goku's brother, Radtiz also called him Kakarot.
Sun Wukong later single-handedly defeats the Army of Heaven's 100,000 celestial warriors, all 28 constellations, four heavenly kings, Nezha the god of protection, and proves himself equal to the best of Heaven's generals, Erlang Shen.
If we assume Wukong could beat over Jade Emperor, and draw to the conclusion that he could also beat Zeus. Actually, in the Daoist paradise, the truely-ultimate celestial being is Daode Tianzun, and Zeus could not stand any chance in facing Daode Tianzun. So, we cannot say who would win this battle.
One-Tails - Shukaku Shukaku is most closely affiliated with the Hidden Sand village, and his first known Jinchuriki was the priest Bunpuku. The clergyman was followed by another host not important enough to be named, before Shukaku was placed inside an unborn Gaara, still in his mother's womb.
Sun Wukong is technically faster than Hercules, but Hercules beat him with pure strength and intelligence. Boomstick- One guy could lift a mountain, the other guy could lift the sky. And even though both are actually decent warriors, Hercules has more experience fighting in one on one combat than Sun Wukong.
If you want the strongest physical god, it would be Erlang Shen, as he was known as the “Greatest Warrior in Heaven”, even though he doesn't live in Heaven. He's a demigod and the nephew of the Jade Emperor. Erlang did manage to fight quite well against Wukong, more so than the other warriors sent to fight Wukong.
Piccolo then takes Gohan away following the fight and Goku's death, and trains him for the upcoming battle against the two other Saiyans, Vegeta and Nappa, though Piccolo is aware that training the son of his greatest enemy will be a risk.
So why does Vegeta call Goku Kakarot, when the rest of the common tongue-speaking world call him Goku. Vegeta calls Goku Kakarot because that is Goku's Saiyan name given to him at birth.
There is no supernatural element to any of the games. Fantasy at most. The first game had disease, the second was enhanced natives, third was drugged water. And it doesn't change the fact that, story wise, there was nothing there.
Despite revealing that Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will feature dialogue options, Naughty Dog is assuring fans that the game has a “very specific story” and won't have branching endings.
