goku has transformed into various and powerful versions of himself to star in epic battles and lead the Dragon Ball canon, including the Z Fighters and manga, anime and other productions throughout the years, but always with the same costume.
As fans of Akira Toriyama’s work well remember, when he suddenly became an adult, Goku presented an orange outfit with a belt, shirt and blue shoes in his original design to complete his suit. . We also saw it in blue in Dragon Ball GT, while orange returned for Dragon Ball Super.
However, Toriyama’s plans were radically different. According to a report published on the 3D Games website, The mangaka created a design for Goku in 1987 with different colors, and it eventually leaked onto the Internet.,
The Adult Goku Design That Was Never Shown In The Anime
The report adds an image of an unknown adult Goku design. He still honors his Saiyan name with orange as his main color, But now his shoes are white, same color for the belt And also with a shirt under a sleeveless suit which looks a bit off.
It is important to note that although this Goku outfit did not appear in the anime, it was seen by readers of the manga. It only featured in one chapter, 173, before being discarded entirely, which is why the Dragon Ball fandom is, for the most part, unaware of this suit.
It is unknown why Akira Toriyama did not continue this costume with white detailing, possibly in preference to the orange and blue colors that were prominent in the television adaptation.
