Today, Goku has become one of the strongest characters in the history of anime. On this page, you can see Goku’s animated images. So, let’s have fun.
The main character of Dragon Ball is no longer just the “savior” of the Earth. He also pulled the galaxy out of trouble and even the 12 universes of the franchise created by Akira Toriyama.

We are far from that child with purple dogi and ape’s tail we saw in the first chapter of the anime/manga. At that time, the “sensei” wanted to give his protagonist the image of a “wild child”, so it was easy to put a tail on him.
Later, with the arrival of Vegeta to the story, he would change his mind, and this tail would become an exclusive characteristic of the saiyajin race to which the most powerful subjects of the franchise belong.
Nowadays, the tail has practically disappeared from the series since not even the saiyajin of the Universe 6, presented in Dragon Ball Super, possess this characteristic – which was taken away from them by the evolution of their species, as they explained.
In Dragon Ball Super: Broly, the “legendary warrior” doesn’t possess it either, and he doesn’t need it since he managed to unlock the ability to handle the power of the Ozaru -the giant ape- while maintaining his human form.
In short, the tail is no longer of any use to them. But do you remember the last time you saw Goku with a tail? It was many, many years ago.
The tail was a characteristic element of the first Dragon Ball bows, and then the hero lost it on several occasions until he never returned.
The first time the hero lost his tail was at the end of Pilaf’s Saga when he looked at the full moon and was transformed into Ozaru.
Despite his friends’ attempts to stop him, they could only get him back to normal when Puar transformed himself into scissors and cut off his tail. At that time, when Goku woke up, he could not even stand up because he had lost this part of his body.
The second time he lost it was during the arch of The Palace of Uranai Baba, in the combat he had before his deceased grandfather Gohan, who returned from the Beyond to meet again with his grandson.
Before that, they had combat without the boy knowing who his rival was. In this battle, the older man held Goku tightly by the tail until he ended up pulling it out for good.
This made him lose his weak point since, as shown later, if you hold a saiyajin by the tail, it is possible to weaken him.
Finally, during the training with Kami-Sama, the Earth’s deity decides to remove the tail from the hero forever because he wanted to restore the moon, which had been destroyed by Master Roshi in a previous Martial Arts Tournament, to finish with another transformation in Ozaru of Goku.
From then on, the protagonist stopped having his characteristic tail. Already in Dragon Ball Z, we saw quite a few tails back, such as Gohan, Raditz, Vegeta, and Nappa.
But both Gohan and Vegeta lost it over the years, and we reached the point where Goten and Trunks were born without it because it became a recessive gene.
