I know that some people like to dismiss Goku as being spider-man level in lifting strength due to him struggling with 10 ton weights on each limb in base during the Buu Saga but if you look at this closer, you'd realize how impressive this feat actually was.

Firstly, we need to account for how fast he's punching with these weights attached to him. It's commonly known that DBZ characters are casually faster than light but let's low-ball and say these were only LS punches.

F= M*A

Use this equation, input the proper information, and you'll end up with a whooping 122281000000 for how many lbs of force he'd need to punch like that with these weights attached to him. For reference, that's the equivalent of 61140500 US tons. This still is him when he was just using the 2 ton weights. For when he was using the 10 ton weights, we'd get 611406000000 for how many lbs of force he'd have to exert to punch them around like he did. For reference, that's the equivalent of 305703000 US tons. Add in the fact that King Kai's planet has 10x gravity and we'd see that Goku displayed a massive strength feat of 611,405,000 tons in just base form.

This is further backed up by his feat of pushing a mountain when he fought Kid Buu as that would require trillions of tons of force to do and he'd have that type of strength in SSJ. He also lifted the Z sword in base form casually which required, I believe, an SSJ2 Gohan to pick up? That's no small feat to accomplish either.

I hope you all enjoyed my tedtalk. 🙂

Buu saga 40 tons has already been widely known as an outlier except for a few ignorant ones.

@lordballer: why would we assume goku is punching at light speed when he's just messing around.

Your right. It should be higher if he's just messing around considering that his base form during Namek could move at 78% of LS and he's obviously become far stronger since then.

@lordballer: I disagree heavily about namek, but even if goku had undeniable ftl feats, there's no reason to logically assume he was throwing hands millions of times faster than sound to show off to people that don't even come close to comparing with him.

While that Kai's student was weak, he wasn't so weak to suggest that he couldn't perceive and understand LS - FTL attacks. There's a reason they were shocked afterall when they saw him training casually with so much weight. If they were weak as you suggested, they wouldn't even had seen Goku do any punches.

Compared to comic book top-tiers Goku is weak. He doesn't have any lifting feats that come anywhere close to the likes of Superman, Wonder Woman, Thor, Hulk, etc... Not only that, but Dragon Ball has weird anti-feats like Vegeta in god form struggling to lift 1000 tons. He's definitely not Spider-Man levels in-terms of strength, but he's not breaking any records when it comes to the upper tiers.

Weakest form of Goku getting shot in the head, can Spider-man tank this at least?
