    ComicBook.com: Dragon Ball Super's finale was a huge hit with fans, so how does it feel returning for the movie with so much support?


    Masako Nozawa: It's just amazing. Goku has a very special place in everyone's hearts. He's been with us for such a long time; he's always going to be there.

    Do you feel Goku's changed since the Tournament of Power and fighting so many strong opponents?

    Goku never changes. He's always been the same, he's always going to be Goku. He wants one thing for the whole world. He just wants peace, he wants everyone to get along with each other. So when [he] encounters a villain or a bad guy, all he's trying to do is change the way they think a little bit and shift them towards good. So if in the middle of a fight if a bad guy says, "You know what? I changed my mind, I'm going to be a good guy now," he's going to stop fighting. He's not in it to beat him up to a pulp or prove that he's better or stronger. He just wants peace.

    Fans are very excited for Goku's big fight with Broly, so did that add any pressure or excitement when performing those scenes?

    I really don't feel that much pressure at all. Because the moment I walk into the studio I become Goku. I feel what Goku feels, take on the same attitude he has, so I just want peace at that point too. He doesn't train to become stronger, to beat people up for the sake of beating people up, he trains to become stronger so he has the power to kind of shift the way people think towards good.Goku Just Wants Peace
    How does Goku feel about Broly?

    Goku never hates anyone. He doesn't even have the idea of vengeance. All he is trying to do is say, "Hey, if you behave that way you're going to cause trouble for people. You're disturbing people's lives, don't do that." So I think Goku really believes Broly is a friend.

    He's trying his best to make peace with Broly?

    All Goku is doing is going, "Hey, you've got it a bit wrong, buddy. You're thinking about this all wrong. If you just turn direct that energy over here, there's so much more potential, more possibility. So hey, come to this side." That's all Goku is trying to do.

    Favorite Transformation?

    Goku's had many transformations, many forms, over the years. Do you possibly have a favorite one?

    [laughs] There's no favorite. I am all of them, and they're all me. Masako Nozawa equals Son Goku. That's all there is. Really, if more people in the world thought the way Goku thought then we could achieve world peace. He never goes out to fight someone with the intent of just beating them for the sake of beating them. He would never think of killing anyone. All he wants to do is change the way people think.

    Can Goku Reach Ultra Instinct Again?
    Goku using Ultra Instinct was an intense moment, did you go anywhere special for that performance?

    There really is no secret to how I build the character. What I see on the screen, I see Goku, I feel whatever he's feeling. And when I saw Goku that way I knew, "OK, this is what Goku must be feeling," so I just try to match whatever I see and become Goku.


    Do you think he can reach that level again?

    I don't know if he'll ever get to that instinct level, but he's always training. He's constantly training. So I think there's going to be a lot more Goku to be seen, because he's always training.

    Anything to Look Out For?
    Is there anything you're excited for fans to see now that Dragon Ball Super: Broly is releasing soon in theaters?

    I mean, there are lots of things, but I don't want to spoil it. I want from the moment the room goes dark and the screen lights up, that's when the experience begins. So in that moment everyone's going to draw something different. There are lots of things I personally like, but I'm not going to ruin the experience for anyone right now.



    Would you be willing to return for another outing as Goku if called upon again?

    I mean, of course, I am Goku. Goku is my clone. So as long as Goku exists, so will I. I don't think Goku will let anyone else act as him, either.



    Woman is a legend.

    Try that with a robber armed with a gun in the middle of the night while you're wearing nothing more than underwear and see if it works.

    It's ironic that Nozawa's description of her character goes against Toriyama saying that Goku is not a righteous hero and him being selfish in the way that he fights for his own enjoyment.

    Read some of Toriyamas interviews on Goku. He hates the way Goku was portrayed as a righteous hero by Toei and thinks of him as a simple minded hick who only cares about Waku Waku and nothing else comes close

    I think Nozawa was trolling because what she just described was Naruto not Goku.

    Goku? Peace? He'll commit suicide out of boredom.

    to be fair while i do not agree with Nozawa's interpretation of Goku's character, Toriyama himself has no idea what he's talking about because he never portrayed Goku as an all-around fighting autist who cared about nothing else but battle in the original manga

    He had a sense of justice and pride but his primary motivation was to better himself and fight strong opponents.

    Don't think Tori said anything to contradict that but I might be remembering wrong.

    And he was also willing to let Vegeta go just so he could fight him again despite the fact that Vegeta was a murderous psychopath and told them he'd come for them again. Goku won't murder needlessly(he gave the Ginyu Force a chance to walk away) but that he just wants peace and that he wants to change villains' minds is completely false. He won't kick a man who doesn't wanna fight but he sure as hell ain't gonna try to turn bad guys into good ones.

    I'll put this way

    What Nozawa’s getting at is that Goku isn’t about indulging in senseless violence

    He wouldn’t fight with someone unless he had to stop them, but he doesn’t exactly hate that part either

    You understand?

    Goku's real personality is somewhere between Toriyama's and Nozawa's opinion.

    He does have a sense of responsibility and an inclination for good, he sees fighting as a sport not as a deathmatch.

    He wouldn't have hunted Tamborine or humiliated Frieza as he did is he really was a 100% fighting maniac.
