Poll: Can Goku survive a planetary explosion? (149 votes)

It might tickle him. 46%
He could tank small planets with ease but may have trouble with Saturn size + 7%
Yes. He's KTFO but quickly recovers with no lasting injuries 2%
He survives but very barely. KOd, sustains heavy injuries and would require time to fully recover 1%
Yes, but only if he's using his Ki/SSJ forms to maximise his durability 13%
50/50 3%
No. He would get vaporised regardless of what form he's in or size of the planet 29%

The durability of DBZ has always been a bit controversial and divisive, so I wanted to get your take it on it.

Let me clarify. Current Goku wants to test his body's limits and is in a similar situation to the one he was on Namek. The planet is about to blow. He has a special oxygen mask so he can breathe and is braced for the explosion. Can he survive?

vegeta died due to the lack of oxygen. Saiyans can't breathe in space

He would no-sell it, come on now. Even Beerus' most casual blasts were large planet level and Goku overpowered hundreds of them in SSJG with his Kamehameha. When you then consider Goku has taken attacks from Jiren far superior to even his SSJB Kamehameha, it becomes clear an exploding planet wouldn't as much as scratch a serious Goku.

Goku can tank as many planet busting energy beams as he wants.

He is not surviving a planet exploding though. His currently most powerful form is still SSJ Blue (it was stated he can not use UI by himself) we saw Vegeta being blown up by a planetary explosion in SSJ Blue so there us no doubt that this form can not take an explosion of a planet.

Period. Feats > Stupid scalings.

If he is fully powered up he could tank Star level attacks. Without Ki shields and only physicals, they aren't impressive. Durability has never been Goku's strongest suits.

No, an exploding planet would kill goku because he'd be stuck in the vacuum of space and immediately die just like vegeta did when frieza blew earth up. Just like Gohan & the rest of the z fighters when Buu blew up earth.

Keep in mind that an exploding planet is different from a planet destroying beam of energy.

Lol the lowballer. Let me remind you Frieza back in Namek Arc survived a Planetery Destruction while being nigh dead already. Current Goku would no sell it in his sleep and wouldn't even notice.

@jashugan: How does that even change it? Thread said can he die from a Planet Exploding and the answer is a no when someone far weaker can. About Oxygen, he can just TP after no selling Planet Explosion.

According to you, Namek Saga Frieza's Durability>>MUI Goku.

@jashugan: Vegeta died because he couldn't escape the empty space which is even mentioned why he would die not from the Planet Exploding lol. We also never saw him dying only assumed. It's Goku we are talking about someone who has TP aka Teleportation.

I don't know why I need to State the obvious but if you think Goku would die from a mere Planet Explosion then you are dead wrong.

Base DBS Goku is several tiers above any DBZ character who have non sold planet exploding right into their face.

Base, powered down Goku...no, there is no arguement to be made. Dude can be hurt by objects just sitting on the surface of a planet, much less an entire planet.

Base Goku utilizing basically any amount of ki, then yes. Ki is why he's durable, without it he's just a saiyan like any other (and every other died on an exploding planet, go figure).

@thedeathstar: if the op wanted to make a thread about goku teleporting before a planet exploded, he would.

Somehow I doubt oxygen is the only problem. Vegeta could've just held his breath if that was the only problem.

@jashugan: When did I mention he would teleport before planet exploding when he can easily tank it and then Teleport to survive the vacuum.

About Vegeta we didn't even see him dying so you are making nothing but mere assumptions.

There's no argument to be made when you think SSB tiers would die to a Planet Explosion when even Base Goku would no sell it.

@thedeathstar: that's not how goku operates. When buu was going to blow earth up, he left before it exploded. Plus the op is giving him an oxygen tank

Avatar image for thedeathstar
#26 Edited by TheDeathstar (3896 posts) - - Show Bio

@jashugan: Buu didn't left he tanked his own attack before destroying several planets and teleporting to others, also Buu's attack as mentioned by Goku could destroy Earth many many times over.

Since OP is giving him an Oxygen tank then it's not even a Question.

Base Goku in DBS survived a 9m radius Blackhole and a Spirit Bomb exploding right into his face when he was tired as hell. That's far beyond planet level.

@jashugan: Goku left because that Attack had potency beyond just Planet level and Goku's capabilities as it has much more power behind it which Goku at that point even mentioned as it could destroy Earth several times over. You don't even understand AoE and how it works. Buu was a being who could finish a Galaxy given time.

@jashugan: oh wait you are the same guy who never read DB and doesn't know whats Attack Potency yeah I am not going to argue.

If you knew the end of Namek Saga you wouldn't even start this nonsense because even in DBZ it was mentioned SSJ Goku would only die due to being alone in vacuum of space by the North Kai and later we see already dying Frieza tanking it. You think you have anything to make an argument or case here? You are wrong.

@thedeathstar: you just claimed I made fallacies yet don't want to post them now.

You also assumed that I believed buu blowing up earth was weak or something and said something else about potency.

I've watched dragon ball. Stop lying.

Why do you like editing your post to add more fluff?

You said you won't argue just to edit your post and ask for an argument.

Wtf? A chopped up Freeza, i.e. with EXPOSED flesh, pretty much no-sold a planetary explosion. Goku has gotten hundreds of times more powerful since then, being able to tank Beerus's unrestrained ki blasts and scaling to be above ssj3 Gotenks and above BoG ssj3.

How is this even remotely debatable?

Technically he should be able to survive that but as we know, anime is anime, so there is no precise answer for this thread.

If he has ki shields to protect himself, then of course he can. I don’t think that DBZ era Goku would be able to, but current Goku can tank punches from Beerus who we all know is well above planet busting levels of power.

According to Comcivine Goku would die if you sneezed at his face. This site hates Goku without any reason. Logically, hell no, he smacks around no sells planet++++++ ki blast on average 10 times a fight.

It's funny cause it's true, comivine is the most dragon ball hating vs site on the internet. Bleach and Fairy Tail gets even more hate.
