If theres room for Ryu theres room for Goku :)
Voted yes, even though I dont really play smash.

I like the idea of how silly it would be to have Goku face off vs say Kirby, Mario, Ryu ect.
It would be fun to watch.

I think anybody who doesn't want Goku in Smash would have to explain why Cloud being in Smash was OK. Cloud is about as far from a Nintendo mascot that you can get. At least Goku has been in some DBZ games that made it to Nintendo consoles.

OK I will take you up on that.

1-Cloud, unlike Son Goku, originated in a video game

2-Final Fantasy started on the NES and has had multiple spin off on Nintendo systems

3-While Cloud original game never made it to a Nintendo system, he as been on a Nintendo console before, heck in the direct where he was announced for Smash, he had already appeared in an earlier segment regarding a FF spin off where he was playable

4- Not really involving Cloud, but if we start getting non video game characters in Smash because they have been in multiple games then why not add CR7,Brock Lesnar,Shaq, etc. they are just like Mr. Goku, heck I would argue some of them would be more deserving of a spot over him if we go by recognition,sales of the games they are in.

I admit that would be pretty fun. Using the "SEEEEEH" celebration to attack

Sure looks like he's in video games to me. The initial medium shouldn't matter so long as the character has a healthy presence in gaming, which Goku does have.

 

While that's a really good point and something to consider, I think it's only fair that someone point out the most important factor here, which is that he's not a video game character

Which is why he has appeared here. As a character.

 

In a video game.

Which makes him a videogame character?

So for example, take Link. When you think about Link, what game comes to your mind? Surely SoulCalibur II, right?

Dude.

Honestly, I've played Goku in so many games I see him just as much a video game character as I do an anime character. Yes, the anime came first. But for years the only new content was video games and an occasional movie.

Well, most people don't see it that way then - because it really isn't. Goku is an anime character and if he features in 800 video games that doesn't change. It'd be like saying Iron Man is a movie character, which would be almost justifiable by how recognizable Robert Downey Jr. is as him and in how many films he's featured, but is still just wrong.

Goku isn't an anime character. He's a manga character. 



He should join. Why not? More characters the merrier.



Goku im Smash, and he can fight Ryu that would be awesome
