Gogeta (ゴジータ, Gojīta) is a character in the Dragon Ball series, and is result of Gokū and Vegeta using the Metamorese Fusion to merge into one warrior. He débuted in Dragon Ball Z: The Rebirth of Fusion!! Gokū and Vegeta, and defeated the monster Janenba with his impressive power. His counterpart is Vegetto, created through the Potara earring.
Despite being formed through similar methods, Gogeta initially appears to be quite different from Vegetto in terms of personality. While Vegetto is cocky and arrogant, Gogeta, as a Super Saiyan, remains serious and seems to prefer to end his battles without hesitation. Although it could have been due to the fact Vegetto was trying to trick Bū into absorbing him so he could rescue his sons and friend who were absorbed by him. Despite his seriousness, he is not without humor, as he seemed to find the ogre who became Janemba running away to be worthy of a chuckle.
As a Super Saiyan 4, however, he undergoes a drastic personality change, acting more akin to Vegetto than himself as a Super Saiyan. Seen when fighting the Super One-Star Dragon, Gogeta likes to play around and take the mickey out of an opponent, performing jokes and pranks at inappropriate moments in the middle of a fight. While this could be seen as the power going to his head, the moment the Super One-Star Dragon used his Minus Energy Power Ball and Gogeta purified it, he once again adopted a more serious personality, and attempted to finish the dragon off immediately, hinting his egotistical attitude was all a ploy so he could clear the Earth of the negative energy since he immediately moved to finish off the Super One-Star Dragon afterwards.
As the fusion of Gokū and Vegeta, Gogeta possesses a fair mixture of traits from both warriors. His hair, while it has never been properly seen in base state, is more inclined towards Vegeta's style, down to the widow's peak; however, Gogeta has one bang that hangs over his face, a trait acquired from Gokū. Physically, Gogeta appears to be more in line with Gokū, as he possesses a muscular, but slender build, as well as being fairly tall. His skin is fair, like Gokū's as well. Gogeta's facial features resemble Gokū as well, but with a hint of the seriousness that comes from Vegeta.
His attire is the standard outfit beget by the Metamorese Fusion; a vest, white gi pants, a dark blue obi tied to the side, and black shoes with dark blue wrappings. The primary difference is the vest's coloration, being black with orange padding, rather than the dark blue vest that Gotenks wears.
As a Saiyan, specifically the fusion of two Saiyans, Gogeta possesses some of the most remarkable power in the universe; including, but not limited to, the natural ki affinity of the Saiyans, and the deadly abilities of Son Gokū and Vegeta, combined into a single entity. He's even shown the ability to combine Gokū and Vegeta's respective skills to create deadly new abilities, and can purify negative energies with ease. With deadly precision, he's capable of easily handling the two opponents he's come up against in the 30-minute time limit given by the Fusion technique, and can only fail when he does not deliver the killing blow as quickly as he should. Despite all of his remarkable abilities, he pales in comparison to Vegetto when the two are in the same state, due to the fact that the Potara earring simply produces a stronger warrior.
Power and Physical Prowess
As the fusion of Gokū and Vegeta, Gogeta possesses the powers of two of the greatest warriors in both the afterlife and world of the dead (at the time of his original fusion). In the Super Saiyan state alone, Gogeta's power vastly outstrips the power of Gokū in his Super Saiyan 3 state. At the moment of his fusion, Gogeta's aura was released as a giant pillar, and could be felt even out of the Afterlife, as Goten and Trunks detected the immense ki emanating from him. The sheer volume of his power was enough to frighten even Janemba. In Super Saiyan 4, his immense powers are increased only further, with the simple act of fusing creating a giant sphere of power akin to a large barrier, and his ki was capable of overloading a mass of negative energy with positive energy to clear a case of planet-wide miasma.
In terms of fighting style, Gogeta appears to favor the use of physical combat over blast attacks when preferable, saving only his strongest blasts for the finishing touches in a fight. As a Super Saiyan, with his serious nature working alongside his considerable power, Gogeta showed the desire to end fights quickly, killing Janemba in a little over half a minute, not even coming close to the 30-minute time limit the Fusion allows. In this form, he's seen favoring kicks over punches and other forms of strike attacks. These, however, were only the visible blows; the blows delivered while he was moving too fast to be properly seen were indiscernible.
During his short few appearances, Gogeta has been seen opting to use physical strike attacks over blast attacks. Despite this, or rather, because of it, when Gogeta uses his ki for blast attacks, they possess tremendous power capable of destroying strong enemies with remarkable ease. Gogeta's own aura, upon his successful creation through fusion, was seen as a towering plume of golden energy, appearing much like a pillar of fire, showing the immense amounts of ki he possessed.
A recurring theme of Gogeta's ki usage appears to be skilled use of positive energy. The Soul Punisher was able to entirely eradicate Janenba, while leaving the ogre the negative energy used as the template for his body untouched, implying the energy was purified. During his fight with the Super One-Star Dragon, Gogeta was able to entirely flood a massive sphere of condensed negative energy with his own positive energy, and purify the toxic miasma of negative energy that covered the entire planet.
One of Gogeta's most powerful finishing techniques is the Soul Punisher, alternatively referred to as the Stardust Breaker. The precise mechanics behind the technique are unknown, but the execution involves Gogeta placing a hand above his head, gathering the ki to form a rainbow-hued sphere of energy. Compressed the sphere into small particles, he throws it at his intended target, where it phases into their body. After a delayed reaction of a few seconds, the sphere detonates, utterly destroying its target. It is presumed to be a form of purification, as the technique destroyed Janemba, a creature made of negative energy, but left the ogre that it used as the template entirely untouched.
Big Bang Kamehameha
Gogeta's signature move, the Big Bang Kamehameha is a combination of two of Gokū and Vegeta's own signature moves, the Super Kamehameha and the Big Bang Attack, respectively. Combining the power of two powerful techniques into one condensed blue-white sphere, the sphere then begins to radiate energy in the form of a very powerful beam. The beam that extends from the sphere has enough power to obliterate the Super One-Star Dragon, despite not being the full-powered version of the technique. Though it lacked the power to destroy him completely, the injuries cost the dragon the other six dragon balls and thus, most of his power. Gogeta stated that a second Big Bang Kamehameha would have killed him. Gogeta was confident that a full blast from the technique would have been enough to kill the Dragon outright and praised the dragon for surviving it.
As both Gokū and Vegeta are able to use the legendary Super Saiyan transformation of the Saiyan race, Gogeta as well is capable of utilizing the form. During his brief appearance during his fight with Janemba, Gogeta immediately transformed upon fusing, and has never been properly seen in base state. As with other members of the Saiyan race, Gogeta's hair becomes gold, his eyes green, and this is followed by a tremendous power increase. As a Super Saiyan alone, his power surpasses Gokū's Super Saiyan 3 form's power, easily defeating Janemba, while Super Saiyan 3 Gokū wasn't able to keep up with the newly transformed creature.
Super Saiyan 4
In Dragon Ball GT, Gogeta's strength was once again needed to combat a powerful foe, and Gokū and Vegeta fused into the Saiyan warrior as Super Saiyan 4, granting Gogeta the same transformation. Gogeta possesses the most unique variation of Super Saiyan 4 seen thus far; brown fur, black eye markings, red hair, and bright blue eyes. In this state, his power increase is substantially larger, being dozens of times stronger than the average Super Saiyan 4. His physical blows are swift enough that they cannot be seen and it simply looks like the opponent bounced off an invisible force field around him, and when he does lower them down to a speed visible to his opponent, they appear more as simple twitches than anything else, even when he's using three simultaneous punches. In Super Saiyan 4, however, the fusion only lasts for ten minutes, due to the vast amount of power the form consumes.
Dragon Ball Z: The Rebirth of Fusion!! Goku and Vegeta
Gogeta made his debut in the twelfth Dragon Ball Z movie, when the combined powers of Son Gokū and Vegeta were needed to defeat the terrible monster, Janemba. After the two barely survive a failed attempt at Fusion that resulted in Veku — an obese version of Gogeta with no talent for fighting — the fusion is properly performed with the intervention of Paikūhan, and Gogeta is born from the result.
Immediately upon his 'birth', Gogeta declares to Paikūhan that he'll defeat Janemba for him. Using his amazing power and speed, Gogeta dispatched Janemba in little over half a minute, using his Soul Punisher to purify the negative energy that made up Janemba's form. With the removal of the negative energy, the ogre that was being used as the template was freed, and fled upon seeing Gogeta. Gogeta chuckled in amusement, before waiting out the remainder of the half hour of his fusion. After they defused, Vegeta told Gokū he never wanted to perform fusion again, and the two bid each other farewell for the time being.
Dragon Ball GT
Seven Evil Dragons Arc
There would come a time where Gogeta's immense powers were needed to save the universe once again. During the battle against the Super One-Star Dragon, Gokū and Vegeta, even at Super Saiyan 4, proved to be no match for the Dragon's immense powers. It was Vegeta who would suggest Fusion, ironic given his distaste for the technique. With the help of their sons distracting the Super One-Star Dragon, Gokū and Vegeta were able to successfully fuse into Super Gogeta. With his increased powers, Gogeta easily handles the Super One-Star Dragon, dominating him with no issue and even utilizing his superior abilities to taunt and toy with his opponent, goading him effectively with techniques designed to humiliate the Dragon. Gogeta's true objectives, however, are revealed when his goading successfully baited the Super One-Star Dragon into releasing his Minus Energy Power Ball, a technique containing the negative power of the Dragon Balls. Gogeta flares his own power, kicking the Power Ball and infusing his own plus energy into it, overriding the minus energy and sending the Power Ball hurtling out into space, purifying the toxic miasmas of negative energy around the planet at the same time. With this goal accomplished, Gogeta moves to finish off the Super One-Star Dragon with his Big Bang Kamehameha. However, due to the immense power consumption of Super Saiyan 4, the fusion lasted an unprecedented ten minutes before defusing, rending Gogeta unable to levy the finishing blow.
