Thread: Baki vs. Goku

  1. #1

    Default Baki vs. Goku

    Which character loves fighting / has more competitive spirit / gets excited about obstacles and strong opponents the most?

    Bonus: Baki vs the weakest version of Goku. Presumably Kid Goku. Add Yujiro if he loses.

    1. Goku, Goku and Goku. Baki enjoys fighting and improving himself, but he's expressed that it's ultimately all out of a desire for him to be strong enough to protect his loved ones and has implied more than once that he would be fine if he never got stronger. Goku, OTOH, is basically a benevolent version of Yujiro.

    I recall Baki saying that if Yujiro were the weakest man alive, he would settle for being the second weakest, but I dunno if that characterization stuck.

    I seem to recall Baki practically vibrating with excitement when Musashi first beat him. He had a whole internal monologue about finding the strongest warrior in history and how thrilled he was.

    There are other scenes where he is suffering from a near depressive boredom when not faced with challenging opponents. Like he throws himself head first down a flight of stairs just to try and get his adrenaline going. It doesn't work. He yawns like halfway down.

    So I dont believe that characterization stuck, no.
