    I think he would have if it didn't involve absorbing Android 18 in the process.

    Goku let Freeza power up to 100% while ignoring King Kai's pleas to kill him before. Just so he could see Freeza's full power like Vegeta wanted to see Perfect Cell.

    Goku fought Majin Vegeta despite the consequences of giving Buu Energy when he could of easily ended the battle by going SSJ3.

    Goku refused to fuse with Vegeta against Kid Buu.

    No he wouldn't. Not in a million years. Goku would never let Cell hurt 18 just for his amusement if he was in the same situation Vegeta was. Current Vegeta wouldn't do it either. Buu saga Vegeta, well I don't know.

    Goku spared a then pure evil Vegeta because he was strong. He gave Freeza a chance to live on namek despite all his genocide.

    Lol Goku gave Cell a Senzu and watched as his son got tortured, he watched and smiled lol. Goku would have threatened to kill Krillin (ala Shin) if Krillin objected to letting Cell absorb 18. Goku is not a hero or "good guy".

    Goku has done questionable things, but he has never allowed anyone who's not a total scumbag get killed in front of his eyes if he can stop it, and he never will. If you think he would let Cell kill absorb 18, you are simply wrong and have misunderstood his character completely.

    Nobody should have to explain the difference between allowing Cell to eat a Sensu Bean vs eating a human.

    Gohan was just fine. No dying involved there. And it's not like Goku could do anything about it. Gohan awakening his true power was their only chance. And the senzu bean thing, well I've said this many times and I say it again. I think it was calculated move by Goku. Being fresh made Cell cocky. If Cell was tired Gohan as a regular SSJ would have been satisfying opponent for him. He would have never unlocked SSJ2 and Cell would have won.

    My immediate answer is yes, but Goku allowing Cell to hurt 18 would be the murkiest shit he has done. Goku is selfish, but he has never allowed anyone else to get hurt because of his fights.

    No, that's a line that Goku wouldn't cross. I know he's not supposed to be a hero but he's no way in hell going to stand there and watch #18 get absorbed by Cell.

    That situation isn't just about fighting someone stronger for the sake of power levels, it has malicious intent behind it because Vegeta didn't give a shit about #18. Vegeta was willing to cross any line to satisfy his sadistic intentions. Goku would never do that even if loves to fight just as anyone else, there's a line and that's that.

    As said above, he gave a Senzu Bean and Gohan got beaten so badly until he turned into SSJ2. I think yes.

    I would have said yes but as other pointed out there is malicous intent involved or atleast complete apathy from goku's side, wich could be argued to be an immoral character flaw. he is not going to have android 18 get vaccuum cleaned. goku would be complicit in a sense. or can be argued to be the case.

    If cell simply had to power up then yeah sure.

    It's tricky.

    I'm 99% sure Goku wouldn't let Cell absorb 18 just to let him get stronger -- if his perfect form was something he could achieve on his own without sacrificing someone else to reach it? He might think about it. It's hard to tell. There's precedent (Freeza on Namek, for example), but one could also argue extenuating circumstances -- he may not have arguably been in his right mind when fighting Freeza, because he just lost Krillin and almost lost his son and Piccolo, and was overcome with rage and the sudden surge of power from his first Super Saiyan transformation. After transforming, he told Gohan to leave while he was still able to keep his rage in check. He was bursting at the seams in anger and rage. That rage didn't really subside until after Freeza was dead.

    Cell saga Goku, assuming he went in the RoSaT first and came out as strong as Vegeta was compared to Semi-Perfect Cell? He might consider it, but he wouldn't if he knew it would require sacrificing #18.

    The thing with watching Gohan fight and the Senzu bean...that's where it gets really tricky, because even though it seemed like a dick move for Goku to do what he did and do nothing, he was fully aware (more than most) that Gohan getting angry and unleashing his full power was the only way they were going to beat Perfect Cell. The only way. So he took a gamble, and fought first so that Gohan could have a glimpse at how Cell fought before stepping in to fight.

    What Goku miscalculated was Gohan's willingness to fight or to let himself lose control like that. Goku was hoping that fighting Cell would bring out more of Gohan's power, but Goku didn't plan on Cell turning sadistic just to intentionally get Gohan riled up. However, prior to that, Goku knew the only way out of this for them was for Gohan to get angry and unleash his true power -- after Piccolo makes Goku realize that he's been treating him like another grown fighter who enjoys battle, instead of a child.

    The minute Goku realized his miscalcluation, he tried getting a Senzu from Krillin to regain his strength and jump back in to "save" Gohan -- even though, again, Goku wasn't nearly strong enough to actually beat Cell. By that time, though, it was too late, and he apologized to everyone for his mistake while getting effed-in-the-ayy by the Cell Juniors.

    That was a miscalculation -- Vegeta letting Cell absorb #18 was criminal indifference and accessory to gynoicide.

    he most likely would've, yes

    at that point in time, goku was p much indifferent to 18 and unless krillin came right up to him and objected, he would've let cell absorb her for 'lul i wanna see how strong you can get'

    Considering he essentially has to let 18 "die", no he wouldnt. Dude had a problem with Freeza killing fucking assassins sent to kill them. If there was a way to do so without giving up someone else life, yeah, he'd do it in a heartbeat.

    Goku took a chance and sat there and watched the Z Senshi get demolished by Beerus cause he was looking for some weakness.:tupac

    Goku was willing to Kill Kaioshin just to fight Majin vegeta! Also caused more deaths by waking majin buu from his energy battling/holding back against majin Vegeta.
    :mjlol

    Goku intentionally let more die than Vegeta's # 18.:tupac

    Everyone except Krillin still thinks 18 is evil at that point. If Goku still thinks she’s evil then he probably wouldn’t have cared about her and let Cell absorb her

    Goku is the same guy who tricked Buu into killing Babidi

    I still don't think he would have done that. Krillin and Gohan would definitely beg him to not let Cell absorb 18, and I don't think Goku would say no to them just because he wants a good fight.

    Remember Goku's speech to Android 17.

    He doesn't like watching innocent people or animals getting hurt.

    However he did stand by and did nothing when Roshi came into contact with Yurin.

    Yes he really would this is the same fucking character that

    -let freiza go to full power even though there might have been a chance that freiza would have been stronger than him.

    -bulma said they should use Shenron to see were the androids are before they were turned on yet he says no.

    -literally stands there and let’s son fights cell and if it wasn’t for piccolo he would have fucking died!(this was before ssj2)

    -could have handled Buu himself but nope I’m going to fuck over the entire planet and let someone else fight him(because of this kid Buu ended up happening and he literally blows up the whole planet and if wasn’t for the Supreme Kai teleporting to save him and vegeta that would have been the ending of the franchise!)
