Naruto vs. Goku: Who Would Win in a Fight?

Naruto Uzumaki and Goku from Dragon Ball Z have had their fair share of epic fights against the best fighters in their respective universes, but these two are probably the strongest of them all. While both characters possess exceptional skills, it’s impossible to choose between the two without putting them side by side in a battle to see who comes out on top as the stronger fighter of the two. Let’s take a look at how they stack up against each other, shall we?

Introduction To Naruto

Naruto is known for being a prodigy at ninjutsu, and he’s developed many techniques over the years. Naruto is also a master of chakra control and can use it to enhance his physical prowess.

Naruto Uzumaki is one of our favorite fictional ninjas from Japan, and if you were to ask us who would win between Naruto and Goku, we’d probably tell you that we don’t know! The only thing that we can say for sure is that if these two ever met in a fight to the death, it would be an epic battle unlike any other. So then… who do you think would win?

Introduction To Goku

Goku is a Saiyan warrior from planet Vegeta. He’s a member of the Saiyans, a race of aliens that are stronger and faster than humans. Goku is known for his incredible fighting skills and superhuman strength. He’s also a master of martial arts, and he uses them to fight. Goku is also a genius inventor, and he’s created many devices throughout the series.


Son Goku was born as Kakarot on Planet Vegeta, later adopted by Bardock and Gine of the Saiyan race. At first, he lived an idyllic life with his adopted parents who took him back to their home planet of planet Earth to live in peace for a few years, although it was cut short when Frieza destroyed Planet Vegeta when Kakarot was just a child, killing everyone but him and his future rival Raditz, who managed to get off-the planet beforehand.

Naruto vs Goku – Who is the best?

Fighting Styles: Naruto vs Goku

It’s not just that Naruto is faster than Goku, or that his Rasengan is more effective. When put head-to-head, you can start to see why people say Naruto would win (or, at least, have a chance). Let’s compare their abilities…

  • The ability for Shukaku to power up Gaara makes him stronger than he was when fighting Rock Lee alone.
  • Naruto did use shadow clones against Pain, but Pain used Shinra Tensei and incapacitated all of them so we won’t include it.
  • The Four-Tailed form gives some of Kurama’s chakra which makes him much stronger than he was when fighting Neji.

Weapons and Abilities: Naruto vs Goku

First, let’s consider their training and experience. Goku has trained under several martial arts masters throughout his life and can compete with some of Earth’s strongest fighters while still being only a teenager. But perhaps Naruto’s biggest advantages come from his abilities as an actual ninja. Let’s take a look at these skills one by one to see how they might stack up against those of our favorite Saiyan warriors.

Super Moves: Naruto vs Goku

With Naruto and Goku being different kinds of heroes, they each have distinct fighting styles. We’ll assume for purposes of our Who would win? the battle that neither character has powers over time or space and can only use techniques that are available to them from start to finish (the basis of these assumptions are below if you’re interested). Let’s break down Naruto and Goku’s super moves so we can take an educated guess as to who would win a fight between them! …

Strategy to Defeat the Other: Naruto vs Goku

Before we can talk about which character would win, let’s look at each character’s strengths and weaknesses as well as their respective strategies for fighting. While Naruto is faster and more durable, he has limited attack strength.


As said before, these two characters are very powerful so I think it would be incredibly difficult to predict who would win. That said, however, I’m going to have to go with Naruto here! He has been trained since he was a child and he has access to various Jutsu which all help him immensely in battle. While Goku may have more strength and incredible power, I don’t believe that Naruto is weaker by any means.
