SpongeBob vs. Goku: Who Would Win in a Fight?

SpongeBob vs. Goku: Who Would Win in a Fight?

By now, you probably know that Son Goku from Dragon Ball is one of the most powerful and potent fictional characters ever created. He is not the most powerful one, but he is at the very top. On the other hand, we also have a very powerful character… okay, no, we don’t. In the other corner is SpongeBob SquarePants, the gullible simpleton who is the protagonist of a beloved animated show. SpongeBob is not a real threat to Goku, but in this article, we are going to answer the Internet’s demands and settle this gimmick duel once and for all.

There is absolutely no way that SpongeBob SquarePants could defeat Son Goku. Sure, the Internet might argue otherwise, and they might even present some arguments for their theories, but this is not even a serious duel. Son Goku would easily be able to deal with SpongeBob, but the most important thing is that these two would not really engage in a fight. Ever.

The rest of the article will be about comparing the characters from Dragon Ball and SpongeBob SquarePants, respectively. You’re going to find out who Son Goku and SpongeBob are, as well as what their exact powers and abilities are. In the end, based on what we presented earlier, we will 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.

If 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, 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 has no 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.

SpongeBob SquarePants and his powers

SpongeBob, or SpongeBob SquarePants, is a character from the animated television series of the same name. SpongeBob SquarePants is a naive and clumsy but positive little sea sponge employed as a cook at Crab Croustillant, a restaurant located in a fictional town, Bikini Bottom, under the responsibility of Captain Krabs. Since its creation, the character has greatly gained popularity with children and adults, despite the many controversies to which it is subject. SpongeBob is a sea sponge that looks a lot like a kitchen sponge.

SpongeBob Squarepants

Due to the nature of the series, SpongeBob SquarePants doesn’t really have any powers or abilities. He claims to be a karate master, which is more untrue than true, and it is speculated that he cannot take any damage because he is a sponge and can regenerate his limbs. But he has been seen getting his butt kicked in the series, so he can obviously take some damage. From a comparative standpoint, there is really nothing we can add to the debate when SpongeBob is concerned.

SpongeBob vs. Goku: Who would win in a fight?

What is there to state here? No analysis, no points, nothing, because we don’t really need anything here. SpongeBob SquarePants is not a serious opponent for anyone, let alone Son Goku from Dragon Ball. Of course, Son Goku would win this fight, it really makes no sense to analyze any other situation, and it would be a waste of everyone’s time to actually compare these two. The most important conclusion we can draw from this comparison is that SpongeBob and Son Goku would never actually fight and that, while humorous, this comparison actually doesn’t make any sense at all, which is why we simply stated our answer and won’t go deeper into the story.

30 Billion SpongeBob vs. Goku: Who would win?

The final section is actually dedicated to a famous meme that appeared back in 2021. A hypothetical YouTube comparison video titled “How Many SpongeBobs To Defeat ___ ?” brought fans to an inevitable (or evitable) conclusion that it would take a total of 30 billion SpongeBob to actually defeat Goku. Sure, this is a very entertaining notion, and from a humorous point of view, it even makes sense it would be fun to see Goku observe 30 billion opponents at once, but this is such a ridiculous notion that we cannot really entertain it seriously.
