Super Mecha Goku is Mecha Goku's equivalent of Goku's Super Saiyan form, it causes his body to turn golden and his hair to rise up. Like Super Saiyan Goku, this form is treated as a separate character from his base form in Dragon Ball Fusion, albeit non-playable unlike Goku's SSJ form which is playable.

Video game appearances

Mecha Goku and Super Mecha Goku both appear as non-playable enemies in Dragon Ball Fusions.

Trivia

  • As they are both robots created by Bulma, Mecha Goku and Ziku are technically siblings though Mecha Goku is a Saiyan Android while Ziku is a robotic Timespace Radar. Additionally Ziku functions as an NPC ally to Tekka's Team, while Mecha Goku is an Enemy NPC who fights Tekka's Team.
  • As he is modelled after Goku, Mecha Goku is classified as a Saiyan in Dragon Ball Fusions despite bring an Android modelled after one. This is similar to Androids like Arale Norimaki and Android 16 being classified as Earthlings in the same game despite being completely artificial Androids as both are modelled on and designed to resemble Earthlings.
  • Mecha Goku is similar to Meta-Cooler Core's idea to create Metal Saiyans using Goku and Vegeta's energy in the original japanese version of Dragon Ball Z: The Return of Cooler as it is essentially a mechanical duplicate of the original.
  • Mecha Goku is similar to Bio-Broly as both are artificial Saiyans created by Earthling scientists and technology. However they differ in that Bio-Broly is a Bio-Warrior clone of Broly while Mecha Goku is a Android modeled after the Saiyan Goku.
  • Mecha Goku is similar to Mecha Naruto the robotic doppelgänger of Naruto Uzumaki from the Naruto series. Both are robotic doppelgängers who appear video game characters and can transform into more powerful forms based on their templates' transformations.
    • It should be noted that the creator of Naruto who also designed Mecha Naruto, was inspired by MechaGodzilla, the robotic doppelgänger of japanese kaiju Godzilla and decided to create a robotic doppelgänger of Naruto.
  • Bulma apparently modelled it after Goku to take advantage of Vegeta's competitive nature and rivalry with Goku in order to increase its effectiveness as a sparring partner for Vegeta.
  • His Rocket Fist and Explosion techniques indicate that Bulma may have based the design of his armaments and fighting style on Android 16 who Bulma studied while repairing him for the Cell Games. Presumably she may have incorporated knowledge gleamed from the technology used to create Android 16 into Mecha Goku as both she and her father acknowledged Dr. Gero's genius when it came to creating advanced Androids.
    • Presumably its ability to self-destruct may have been added at Vegeta's request as it would allow Mecha Goku to emulate the Saibamen whom Vegeta used as sparring partners in the past as a member of the Saiyan Army and Frieza Force, adding an element of surprise and danger to his training, as it seems unlikely that Bulma herself would have added such a dangerous feature on her own given that she removed Android 16's ability to do so (though admittedly this was to ensure he wouldn't use it on Goku whom 16 was programmed to kill).
  • Interestingly, Mecha Goku and Android 16 share a few similarities beyond techniques, as both are completely artificial androids created based on a biological counterpart, Goku and Dr. Gero's son respectively, though Mecha Goku was modelled after a Saiyan while Android 16 was modelled after an Earthling.
