    We all know death is cheap in Dragonball and good guys almost always get wished back to life if they die.

    But nobody lives forever. So when it all comes down to it, how do you think Goku will die his real/final death? I can think of a few possibilities -

    • Final fight with Vegeta (I think this is how he and Vegeta died in the Dragonball online continuity, don't think that's canon tho)
    • Old age
    • Fight against some villain where he doesn't get wished back (either he can't, or won't want to)
    • Some sort of disease or illness (return of the heart virus)
    • Pisses off Beerus one too many times
    • Maybe he won't die and instead will become a GoD or some other deity?

    Honestly I could kind of see a final fight with Vegeta once their kids are all grown, since they'd both probably rather go out in a blaze of glory rather than get older and weaker. But then again, I'm not sure their wives would have it. Also, I'm not sure losing to Goku again is the best way for Vegeta to go out.

    Just to be clear, the final fight with Vegeta was because of old age. They both felt they were about to lose their prime forms, so they decided to go out in a blaze.

    Although I can see Goku becoming a Master Roshi. Just chilling and training the next generation on how to defend the planet.

    Go the DBO route and have both Goku and Vegeta go out together in one epic final showdown.

    Anything else just doesn't feel right.

    He's died so many times it's hard to think they would ever kill him off permanently

    Death is not permanent. In the case for Goku death probably means an infinite battle with those from the past and threats from the future.

    Probably a big fight where he has to permanently sacrifice himself or against Vegeta DBO style.

    If neither... Goku will just go on. He will chase himself and whatever challenge is out there in some other universe/multiverse/dimension or what have you. He’ll expand his horizons. And may possibly become immortal from sheer evolution/improvement.

    And I don’t see Goku as being the type to get all angsty over immortality. At least for a while.

    Goku is such a cash cow that he likely will never stay dead.

    He might die but at this point either he will be resurrected in 20 episodes at most or will just stay around despite being dead...like being granted by Yama a whole month of staying in the world of the living in the flesh. Or he will stay in a place where the dead have no trouble manifesting fully.

    He...He wont...:drake

    Hes worth way too much money to perma die

    Refer to every superhero death story ever

    Ya got Supes, Batman, Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man...The list goes on.

    Every hero worth a damn has a "The Death of X" story line...And they ALL come back...

    Gokus no different, weve SEEN him die several times and return ffs.

    At the end of The Series I can see Goku looking up into the sky and thinking of he stronger people out there and it ends just like that. And it implies he dies doing what he loves

    I would fucking love one final battle between Goku and Vegeta, that'd be so awesome and I couldn't imagine a better way to end both Goku and Vegeta's stories!

    I once wrote a fanfiction based on DBO where in the beginning of the story, Goku started to notice his body started to get weaker overtime, in fact, Goku was getting afraid because he felt the end of his prime was near, so he tells Vegeta (who feels the same way, but is too proud to admit) and they both agree on one last battle. So Goku and Vegeta got their wives to throw this huge going-away party so they could see all of their friends one final time. Piccolo and Kuririn knew, but didn't say anything until they had already blasted off.

    I think Super should end with Goku/Vegeta fighting for the title of God of Destruction, I think giving them a final smack down to finally end the show would be perfect, and a long time coming, especially once Uub is trained.
    Maybe an agreement that once the world is safe, and the gen has grown up, Whis would officiate a final battle.

    Jut imagine, both of them getting UI (I must hear Goku & Vegeta's roar's when they battle), or ascended Blue, the best animators on the job, and it being 3-4, maybe 5 episodes long, shock waves and energy from the punches scaring Whis & Beerus, trick techniques they have saved for each other we haven't seen yet, and a massive Kamehameha Wave vs Galic Gun struggle.
    Hell, I'll even take some flashbacks to their previous fights together/against each other, maybe with a few epic tracks mixed in.
    Let their families witness, or feel the battle all the way on Earth, then have Whis arrive and tell them how it went, or just have him tell them goodbye, and that the fight was "Godly", then smile, and end it all there.



    Although, if a twist like, say, Goku losing, or something crazy like that (stepping down), then he can be a teacher forever, maybe join King Kai or Whis and just train in the afterlife until something big enough to need his attention arises again, especially once Goku is done with Uub.

    The truth is that Goku will die permanently after Toriyama passes away, because TOEI on their own cannot write a good Goku.

    Well he shoulda stayed dead after the Cell Saga. I felt like that would've been a good permanent death for him. Gohan was strong enough and prepared to be the new defender of earth and Goku died a noble death to save the world. But if we're talking now... I don't think he's gonna die anytime soon, but I didn't mind the GT ending. It all began with the dragon balls and it ended with Shenron. It was kinda poetic, and it was ambiguous on whether he became a god, or went on for further training. But I liked it.
