Son Goku (Dragon Ball series) 49%
Master Chief (Halo) 51%

This is not a battle. This is asking who is a better character, (Better written, developed, etc)

Chief. Goku is iconic but his character isn't all that. The MC has a more interesting backstory and plot.

Goku stomps on having a multifaceted personality where he can display the full range of emotions, we’ve obviously seen him feeling goofy, feeling furious, feeling calm and determined, feeling scared, feeling shocked, etc.

Goku. Master Chief is basically a placeholder that could be filled with anyone.

Then it's Goku easily because we get to see him evolve over the course of a whole lifetime, go through multiple character arcs, and he is more three dimensional by showing various emotions whereas Chief is stuck in one mode.

Thx for the tag, I’d say Goku. I’m more familiar with him. Master Chief’s alright I guess, I was never really a huge fan of him.

Who do i think is more badass and represent iconic symbol on his genre ? Goku

Who has better character development and consistency? Chief by Miles

Who do i like more? Neither tbh unless it's the time where both we're a thing Goku for DBZ or Chief at evolved to 3.

In that case, probably Goku. But not by much.

Chief is passable for what he is, the usual badass FPS video game protagonist. He's not really someone that should have complex development. Cortana and Chief's relationship is really the only thing that comes close.

@gelato_exotic: Goku only spared Freeza and Moro when they began begging for their lives. Goku cannot bring himself to kill someone in cold blood.

I would go with Goku

Halo 5 really fucked up Chief’s character and just made him even more edgy

Imo he would've spared Frieza regardless tbh, did you see despite everything Frieza had done how much they respected each other as fighters even still? Not to mention he was even screaming at Frieza to not get up and tried to help him when he got himself sliced up. Even in RoF he was extremely hesitant to finish Frieza off , and the consequences came immediately with Frieza being able to catch him off-guard due to his attitude of caring about nothing but the fight. It's one of the main flaws in his judgements and how he goes about such situations but its what makes Goku who he is.

I'm pretty sure he spared Moro with the hopes of him redeeming himself and being able to fight him again one day, which I believe because of his conversation with Merus several chapters before about his attitude towards these people who are supposed to be his opposition, and the short conversation he had with Moro after he gave him the senzu bean.

This. I don't even know why this thread is made or how anyone can state otherwise. Halo games are way better than DBZ games though. As a character in terms of development and writing. Goku wins and there isn't even an argument to be had other than not liking a character.

@gelato_exotic: I respectfully disagree with a lot of your points.

First of all I don’t think Goku and Freeza respected each other at all. Their relationship is one of only hate. They both realize the other is a strong fighter, but that’s where it ends, they don’t like or appreciate anything else about each other because they are diametrically opposed.

When Freeza cut himself in half, Goku was trying to just leave him there. He turned his back and began to fly away. Then Freeza began begging for help, and we can see this internal struggle within Goku as he is enraged that Freeza would beg for mercy after offering none to everyone else. Nonetheless Goku does give him mercy, because he can’t bring himself to ignore those pleas.

Likewise Goku was literally killing Moro. He almost punched a hole through Moro’s stomach, and then Moro got buried in rocks. Moro begged for his life at that moment because he was literally dying. Goku only gave him a senzu after he started pleading.

Goku does like to fight strong guys but he also tries to see the good in everybody.

Goku is a very unique character. He is uncultured, and as such many complaints like his intellect, abilities as a father, and choices are ranted over. Yet these are just aspects of his character. Goku also feels completely different across his sub and dub takes, as the tones and styles of his voice actors differs how his character feels.

Sub gives us a more energetic and childish Goku and his ineptitude feels more so as apart of his [prior] lifestyle.

Dub gives us Goku who feels like he better embodies heroism and self-strength. These traits make his uncultured 'flaws' feel less natural as this tone from character better suits a stereotype, which his uncultured aspects stray away from.

MC is no doubt badass, but Goku is unique on his own and in many ways. His sub and dub make his character difficult to make a clear-cut visual to depicting him. Goku is misunderstood, and to have a main character that the audience has yet to figure out is amazing. Especially since he is not misunderstood due to poor writing, but from misinterpretation from the audience trying to place cultural and social views onto a character who was intended to diverge from them.

Characters evolve around a character like Goku, as does the audience. He is a symbolic character who naturally stands outside the norm, and is one of the most inspiring characters in fiction. Goku is a symbol for an underdog, who shows that hard work and a following your goals and dreams can be possible if you are dedicated. He is not hand given all of his might. In the one case he is, he resents it (his ssg powerup).

MC is cool, but he does not hit as unique as Goku.

One is an annoying character, the other doesn't have much character. Can't choose.

Though to be fair, I only played the Halo games, never read the books or watched stuff that expanded on Chief.
