The Dragon Ball franchise will continue its huge legacy even in 2024, as we can expect a brand-new anime called Dragon Ball Daima, a new fighting game known as Dragon Ball Sparking! Zero and Zeno knows what else. Let’s not forget that the Dragon Ball Super Manga will also continue its chapters, and all this can mean one thing: Goku has more chances to train and become even stronger than he already is.

One of the main aspects of Dragon Ball is that Goku always seeks more power, which means that he’ll have more opponents to face in the future of the series. The beloved Saiyan is best known for iconic moves such as the Kamehameha Wave, Instant Transmission, or Spirit Bomb. But Goku has even more attacks up his sleeve that he rarely used throughout the franchise. We should definitely see those attacks more, so let’s get into detail!

Destructo Disc

That’s right: Goku used Krillin’s Destructo Disc attack during the Majin Buu Saga of Dragon Ball Z, and we should definitely see that attack more. The Destructo Disc is a ball of energy squeezed into a dense and sharp disc that could cut almost anything it touches. Frieza used it to cut Frieza’s tail back in early Dragon Ball Z, proving to everyone that there’s not always the strongest one who can win a fight. Krillin could have defeated Frieza in that battle if he had been more persistent.

However, Goku might not be able to use the Destructo Disc as many times and as accurately as Krillin does, as the beloved Saiyan has more powerful moves up his sleeve. But even so, we would definitely like to see more Destructo Discs from Goku in the future!


Goku learned the Kaioken technique from King Kai, and he had been using it a lot before he became a Super Saiyan. Goku went Kaioken against Vegeta, Nappa, Captain Gyniu, and other fighters. This technique is a multiplier of the base form power level of the one who uses it, and it does come with a risk. Using the Kaioken more than your body can take might result in serious damage to the muscles. After Goku became a Super Saiyan for the first time on Namek when he fought Frieza, our Saiyan hero didn’t use the Kaioken anymore in the entire Dragon Ball Z series. The technique came back in Dragon Ball Super, however, when Goku combined it with his Super Saiyan Blue form while he was fighting Hit. This move allowed Goku to multiply his Super Saiyan Blue powers even more, and it was nice to see the red aura being brought back after so much time. Hopefully, we’ll see it more in the future of the franchise, even though a lot of Dragon Ball fans would say that Goku doesn’t need it anymore.

Solar Flare

Tien, who was one of the most interesting characters back in the original Dragon Ball series, has some amazing techniques. Solar Flare was one of them, a move that would allow Tien to blind his opponents temporarily in order for him to find an opening for a devastating attack. Goku also proved to be able to use the Solar Flare if he needed to, as he did during his first fight with Vegeta in early Dragon Ball Z when the Saiyan Prince became a Great Ape. The main advantage of the Solar Flare technique is that it doesn’t matter how powerful your opponent is; he will still be affected by the technique.

We would like to see Goku using Solar Flare more often, and yes, it would be nice for Tien to be more decisive in the future of Dragon Ball.

Dragon Fist

In Dragon Ball GT and the “Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon” movie, Goku uses the Dragon Fist move, which is arguably even stronger than his Kamehameha Wave. That’s how Goku defeated Super Android 17 in Dragon Ball GT, by using Dragon Fist even in his base form. We would definitely like to see this attack performed by Goku more often, as it was completely forgotten in Dragon Ball Super. However, we can see it a lot in Dragon Ball video games. We didn’t even see the attack happening in the Dragon Ball Z series, however, although we can have hopes that Dragon Ball Daima, the anime that will debut in the fall of 2024, will bring back this devastating attack of Goku.

Super Saiyan 3

That’s right, ladies and gents, the Super Saiyan 3 transformation of Goku was almost completely forgotten during the Dragon Ball Super anime. It was a badass transformation achieved by Goku while he was training in the Other World back in late Dragon Ball Z. He first used it against Majin Buu, and our hero completely dominated the monster in battle. Goku used it only twice during the Dragon Ball Super anime: during a little training session against Future Trunks and for just a few seconds in the Tournament of Power while he was fighting Kale and Caulifa. That beautiful blonde and long hair of the Super Saiyan 3 transformation couldn’t possibly leave you unmoved, and we hope to see Goku using it again more often. However, it’s true that Super Saiyan Blue or Ultra Instinct are far stronger than Super Saiyan 3.

What is your own favorite attack/technique of Goku that you hope to see more often? Feel free to tell us in the comments!
