Goku vs. Boruto: Who Is Stronger & Who Would Win in a Fight?

Goku vs. Boruto: Who Is Stronger & Who Would Win in a Fight?

Martial arts and fighting are essential elements of a lot of anime series. Some of them are lesser-known, while others are among the most important works in the genre. The latter group includes both Boruto and Dragon Ball, two of the most popular anime series in history; both of them are members of the “Big Four” (Boruto as a sequel to Naruto). Now, in this article, we are not going to compare the two series, but rather their two protagonists – Son Goku of Dragon Ball and Boruto Uzumaki of Boruto – in order to tell you which character is stronger.

Due to his enormous potential and incredible feats, Son Goku would be able to defeat Boruto Uzumaki in a direct clash of these martial arts titans. Son Goku is an actual god, and he grows stronger with each fight, whereas Boruto’s powers are limited by his inherent humanity. Goku is also more experienced and has fought and defeated enemies much stronger than Boruto. This is why Goku wins this one.

The rest of the article is going to be all about comparing the protagonists of Dragon Ball and Boruto. You’ll find out who Son Goku and Boruto Uzumaki are, as well as what their exact powers and abilities are. In the end, based on what we have presented earlier, we’re going to give our final verdict on who is stronger. It’s promising to be a fun story, so keep reading until the end!

Son Goku and his powers

Son Goku is the main protagonist of the manga Dragon Ball, and their animated adaptations, Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z / Dragon Ball Kai, then Dragon Ball Super, as well as the alternative animated sequel to the first two series, Dragon Ball GT. An orphan exiled from the defunct planet Vegeta, he lands on Earth, where he grows up with his adoptive grandfather. His adventure begins when he meets Bulma, a young adventurer, who invites him to look for the Dragon Balls.


In terms of pure powers, we can state that Son Goku has become a true Saiyan god as the series progressed. He doesn’t have any superpowers like some other superheroes, but he can utilize his physique and his fighting skills in such a way that he truly does seem superhuman.

He is a constantly evolving character that upgrades his skills and potential after each big challenge, becoming more powerful after every fight. In that aspect, his potential is practically unlimited, and it is safe to assume – although we have to reiterate that there is no hard evidence for this – that his potential is night infinite. When it comes to speed, well, we don’t actually know how fast Goku is. We know he’s fast. His reflexes are brilliant, and he can, indeed, move really fast. But how fast is he, exactly? We haven’t a clue.

Suppose we consult Dragon Ball Super, where Goku’s powers have become almost absurdly big and compare his speed to the general speed of the Dragon Ball Z characters. In that case, we could assume that he’s become the fastest character in the series. The sad thing is – we have absolutely no proof of this, and this brings us to the verifiability issue mentioned above. This is one of such unverified (or even unverifiable) assumptions that you can freely interpret.

Son Goku is a superb warrior who never gets weary and becomes better after every battle in terms of stamina. Son Goku is a trained martial artist, making him naturally skilled in hand-to-hand combat; instead of relying on his strength and his abilities, he uses his talents and intricate fighting techniques. Additionally, because of his Saiyan build, he can battle for an extremely long time—so long that it is debatable whether he ever tires—though this is another unsubstantiated notion that is open to interpretation. Additionally, he develops and expands after each combat, which increases his durability.

He is not immortal, though, which is something we thought was worth mentioning at this point. Finally, we’d like to confirm that Goku doesn’t really have any known weaknesses in the classical sense. Sure, he can be beaten, but there is no secret weapon you could use in a fight against him. If you’re a better fighter, you’ll win; if not, there’s really no “cheat code” you could use.

Boruto Uzumaki and his powers

Descended from both of his powerful bloodlines, Boruto Uzumaki is a prodigy, considered capable of accomplishing anything he attempts in a remarkably short time. Having inherited his paternal grandfather’s genius and his father’s unpredictability, he achieved the highest mark in his class in the Genin Examinations and is considered well above the rest of his generation. As a genin, Boruto is considered an elite who excels in all combat areas. His prowess proved crucial in defeating formidable opponents, including Momoshiki, Urashiki, and members of Kara. His potential is also seen as a threat to the Ōtsutsuki clan.


Despite having had a large portion of his chakra absorbed into himself, Boruto, who inherited his father’s enormous chakra reserves, is nevertheless able to produce four shadow clones. Along with having a significant amount of Otsutsuki power, he also has Byakugan user blood, which allowed him to speak with the departed ghost of Momoshiki Otsutsuki. He just needed a few days of training to be able to use the Rasengan and perform one-handed mudras before instinctively perfecting and upgrading the move. This shows how advanced his chakra control is.

Due to his exceptional speed, Boruto is able to sneak past his opponents without being seen. The demonstration of Boruto’s taijutsu prowess demonstrated his ability to mount constant assaults by carefully synchronizing the strikes from all four of his limbs. He mastered the fundamentals of Juken use as a member of the Hyuga clan, but he was unable to target an opponent’s tenketsu without a Byakugan. In addition, he is strong enough to attack targets with blows that can break the earth.

Boruto had the power to create numerous shadow clones and coordinate assaults with them in order to thwart a chûnin or even a jônin before enrolling at the Academy. Initially, Boruto’s clones were only able to work when they were in his direct line of sight. His father also showed him a number of sexy techniques. Boruto initially failed at mastering the Rasengan, but with Konohamaru’s assistance, he was able to construct a miniature version between two hands, then grow it to its full size with just one hand.

With the help of a prophetic dream from Toneri Otsutsuki and the advent of Nue, Boruto started inadvertently activating the Jogan in his right eye when he was eight years old. The eye initially only instinctively opened when there was a serious threat, as it had been inactive for a long period before meeting Momoshiki Otsutsuki. He was eventually able to activate it on his own will when he was 16 years old. He can sense things that are often unseen to the human sight thanks to this dojutsu. As a result of his ability to sense chakra flow, Boruto is able to track a target through chakra and observe changes in his own chakra. Additionally, he has the ability to see beyond the invisible walls that separate dimensions and the central points of the circulatory chakra system.

Despite the fact that he is frequently negligent to the point of being perceived as lazy, Boruto is incredibly perceptive and excels at reading the situation and responding to it. Although he shares his father’s appearance, he displays originality when employing complex strategies that involve the Multi-Cloning approach. He nevertheless presents it more subtly because he can only use four clones. He learned to use a variety of subtle feints and deceptions, which helped him defeat Momoshiki and Iwabee even though he generally preferred a more direct style of fighting. He gets used to exploiting the weaknesses and defects in both himself and his opponents, which serve as the foundation for his disputes. It was shown that he was absolutely capable of handling difficult problems.

Son Goku vs. Boruto Uzumaki: Who would win?

And now for the most important and interesting section of our article – the analysis. Here, we are going to use what we have found out about these two characters and analyze how all these facts would (or would not) help them in a fight against each other. Let us continue.

Well, just as was the case with Boruto’s father, Naruto, Son Goku would come out as the winner of this duel. There is absolutely no way that Boruto could defeat him. Boruto Uzumaki is powerful, but we’re not sure that he has even surpassed Naruto regarding powers and abilities. On the other hand, Goku is very close to Whis’ level of power, and Dragon Ball fans will know what that means. This is why Goku would win this one easily.
