The Dragon Ball series protagonist, Goku, is a wildly overpowered Z-Fighter of untold strength and skill, and in a new fanart animation that turns his anime and manga look into something more pixilated, all of Goku’s many transformations are front and center for fans to see!
Posted up on Reddit’s r/dbz channel, username u/ASPECT3000 is all about making sprite art while finding creative ways to incorporate nerd characters that fans know and love. Creating content from not just the world of Dragon Ball, but DC Comics, Marvel, Invincible, Sonic the Hedgehog, and more, u/ASPECT3000 is an artist worth checking out every time they upload a new inspired piece of art.
A Dragon Ball character whose story fans have followed for decades, Goku aka Kakarot is a member of the Saiyan race of aliens who are all about beating the snot out of people while continually chasing that next level of power. Able to ascend to Super Saiyan form at will as well as various other transformations that are ridiculously overpowered, Goku and his Z-Fighter pals have beaten back evil villain after evil villain and saved the world countless times over, to say nothing about the battles fought across the rest of the universe, with this animation going all in on showing fans what Goku is truly capable of.
Kicking things off with Kakarot in his “base” form, Goku immediately powers up to the first Super Saiyan level, with the unique pixel art style doing wonders in giving fans a new look for a Dragon Ball hero who’s had his fair share of them. Next teasing a bit of Super Saiyan 2's crackling electricity, Goku goes full Super Saiyan 3, ascends to Super Saiyan God, and then slips into the mouthful of a transformation known as Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan, or more easily remembered as Super Saiyan Blue. Further animating Goku in this impressive pixel design as he jumps, flips, and spins into his Ultra Instinct Sign form, Goku’s final and most recent transformation, the fully powered Ultra Instinct form is shown next, sparkling silver hair and all. But u/ASPECT3000 isn’t done yet! As a bonus at the end of the clip, u/ASPECT3000 gives fans a look at Dragon Ball GT’s Super Saiyan 4 form and even a quick glimpse at the power of Goku’s Kaioken technique. Talk about a lot of transformations!
So while Goku will undoubtedly get another form somewhere down the line that’ll turn out to be even more powerful than his last one, u/ASPECT3000 bringing all of his current transformations together in a fun pixel art style is Dragon Ball fanart at its peak. Goku will never stop striving for the next level of power, so expect u/ASPECT3000 to be there to animate him when he ascends yet again!
