I’m not the power level guy. Very quickly, I learned to stop caring about power scaling, relative strength and characters getting inexplicable power boosts during my time watching Dragon Ball Super. I just sat back and enjoyed the ride. The jump in power levels is much less extreme in Dragon Ball GT, but that doesn’t mean we’re not going to get a whole lot of nonsense for our trouble.
In this final day talking about Dragon Ball GT before I dive into the Baby Saga, I have a question for the three or four people actually reading this. What do you think of this format? When I start watching the Baby Saga, do you this again and break it down after I’ve finished it all? Or should I just start reviewing the episodes one at a time instead as I go through them.

Contrary to popular belief, Son Goku does has a character. Not a deep or complex one mind you. Goku likes two things: to fight strong guys and, to a slightly lesser extent, food. That first major character trait had ended up being the cause of a great number of events throughout Dragon Ball. Hell, two thirds of Dragon Ball Super came as a direct negative result of Goku’s innate, uncontrollable lust for battle.
Toriyama’s Goku isn’t a hero in the classic sense, there no doubt he’s a good guy, but still a selfish one who readily endangers those around him if it gets him what he wants. With Super still seared into my mind; The Goku seen in Dragon Ball GT, thus far, he doesn’t seem like Toriyama’s Goku to me.
