"I am not Goku or Vegeta; I am Gogeta! It's over Janemba! I've come for you!"
Gogeta (ゴジータ Gojīta) is the resulting fusion of Goku and Vegeta, when they perform the Fusion Dance properly. His voice is a dual voice containing both Goku's and Vegeta's voices. Like his Potara counterpart, Vegito, he is regarded as one of the most powerful characters in the whole Dragon Ball franchise.
Creation and Concept
As a fusion of Goku and Vegeta, Gogeta is a combination of their characteristics, retaining Goku's tall physique and Vegeta's stern facial features. Like other Metamoran fusions, he dons a black vest with reddish-orange padding and a dark blue belt. First shown in his Super Saiyan form, his hairstyle resembles Vegeta's, though Gogeta's hair is longer and wider, sporting an additional bang down his forehead. In Fusion Reborn and Dragon Ball GT, Gogeta retains Vegeta's widow's peak and Goku's lighter skin complexion, while in Dragon Ball Super: Broly, he lacks the widow's peak and sports Vegeta's mildly tan skin instead, along with jet-black hair with the reveal of his base form. His Metamoran outfit also more closely resembles his son Gotenks', the padding on his vest being yellow instead of orange and his belt a distinct shade of teal instead of dark blue.
Although made in a similar fashion, Gogeta's personality traits are different from those of Vegito, though it is impossible to tell which counterpart's personality is the dominant one or a composite of both Goku and Vegeta, but in terms of humor and a lesser tough attitude, Gogeta acts and uses catch phrases more similar to Goku.
In Fusion Reborn, Gogeta is shown in a cold fashion, barely speaking during his fight with Janemba and opting to swiftly eradicate him instead of playing around. He chuckles after seeing the monster revert back to the Saike Demon, hinting that Gogeta is not as stern as he comes off.
In GT, Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta's personality greatly resembles Vegito's, as he is shown to enjoy toying with Omega Shenron to the point of pulling absurd pranks, though his overconfidence results in his unexpected defusal due to his fusion time being shortened by the power of Super Saiyan 4. However, Gogeta is shown to have a reason behind pranking Omega, as it is his prank that incites Omega into launching the Negative Karma Ball and gives Gogeta the opening to purify it and disperse the negative energy surrounding the Earth.
In Broly, Gogeta displays mixed traits of his Fusion Reborn and GT selves, almost always seen with a confident, almost arrogant smirk on his face, but remaining practical and efficient, moreso than Vegito. He rarely speaks during his battle with Broly, only taunting briefly before resuming his attacks. In a similar vein to Vegeta, Gogeta can be ruthless once he had determined a foe to be a threat, and will show no mercy or hesitation in eliminating them as demonstrated during the climax of his battle with Broly. However, he still retains Goku's benevolence, as after Broly was no longer a threat and teleported away, Gogeta merely smirked and ceased his attempt on Broly's life. Additionally, he merely restrained Frieza from firing upon Cheelai and Lemo's ship, rather than killing him as he easily could have. He also retains Goku's respectful nature, such as referring to Whis as "Whis-san". This personality was retained in Super Dragon Ball Heroes, where Gogeta taunted Hearts at the beginning of their battle but quickly shifted into a more efficient attitude to overpower the Core Area Warrior.

Main articles: DBS : Broly Saga and Extra Edition 4 (Dragon Ball Super manga) In the "Extra Edition 4" chapter of the Galactic Patrol Prisoner Saga, Gogeta is briefly mentioned by Goku when he explains to Merus and Jaco the events surrounding the Broly Saga and how both he and Vegeta had encountered Broly and had been forced to fuse into Gogeta to defeat him. Gogeta is shown using the Perfected Super Saiyan Blue state to overpower the berserker.
Dragon Ball Heroes
Universal Conflict Saga
Main article: Universal Conflict Saga
Finding themselves overwhelmed in the face of Ultimate Godslayer Hearts' power, Goku and Vegeta opt to fuse into Gogeta in the hopes they can match his strength. After his fusion succeeds, Gogeta disregards Hearts' claim of superiority and simply smirks, voicing his desire to have some fun. Gogeta transforms into a Super Saiyan Blue and approaches Hearts, throwing a punch that Hearts initially catches but Gogeta powers through to land the punch. Hearts is forced to power up further and the two engage in combat. Gogeta quickly displays the advantage, dodging multiple of Hearts' gravity-augmented punches before redirecting the force of one back into Hearts' shoulder, dealing significant damage. With the Godslayer retreating behind a barrage of energy blasts, Gogeta closes the gap to deliver another punch, then fakes Hearts out with a flying knee to use his other knee to land a hard blow.
After Gogeta lands the attack on Hearts, the Godslayer compliments his strength and even attempts to persuade Gogeta to join him in his fight against Zeno for the true freedom of mankind, declaring that despite Gogeta's increase in power, the fusion still falls short in comparison to him. Gogeta replies that Hearts is the one who doesn't understand, retorting that he already has his freedom and that he is, in fact, stronger than Hearts. Hearts laughs off the claim and tells Gogeta that his choice is pathetic. Floating higher in the air, Hearts then summons a God Meteor into Earth's atmosphere and begins to launch it down to the ground below where everyone is immobilized but Gogeta who stands between it and devastation.
The fused warrior launches a tremendously large Big Bang Attack to hold off the God Meteor, actually stopping it in its tracks before Hearts further increases the attack's power and sends it hurtling back down at Gogeta, who counters with a Kamehameha. With neither side showing any sign of weakness, Jiren and Hit suddenly rise to assist Gogeta, greatly empowering the Kamehameha with their own energy and giving it the power to completely shatter the God Meteor.
In one final clash, Gogeta rushes Hearts, both punching each other in the face with Gogeta breaking Hearts' visor, before he dodges the following punch and shatters the gem on his chest, his aura bursting through Hearts' body, releasing the Universe Seed's energy and causing Hearts to disintegrate. Before he completely disappears, though, Hearts tells Gogeta that the world was never truly free with someone like Zeno around, capable of obliterating the universe with one thought, and that he his goal was just to liberate the world from that lack of freedom. After praising Goku and Vegeta's (and Gogeta's by extension) limit-breaking power and expressing his fondness for mortals because of it, Hearts finally fades from reality, leaving Gogeta as the victor.
With the universes safe once again, Hit and Jiren question why Goku and Vegeta never bothered to fuse into Gogeta during the Tournament of Power due to his tremendous strength, though Gogeta comically defuses during his response and Vegeta finishes his statement by snarking that he didn't want to fuse with a buffoon.
Dragon Ball GT
Shadow Dragon Saga
Main article: Shadow Dragon Saga
"The Saiyans? They are here, I am they, we are one. Unfortunately for you, Omega."
When Goku and Vegeta as Super Saiyan 4's could not beat Omega Shenron, Vegeta suggests fusion, with Goku laughing, surprised that Vegeta is the one who suggested it, hating the idea on previous occasions. With the help of the Dragon Team distracting Omega, they fused into Gogeta again and this time, in his Super Saiyan 4 state to combat Omega Shenron. Having achieved his ultimate potential, Gogeta easily overpowered Omega Shenron and even used his supreme power to gloat and toy with the Shadow Dragon, using attacks solely to humiliate Omega, and afterward laughing loudly. Gogeta goads Omega into trying to use the Negative Karma Ball to destroy the Earth in desperation. The result of this was Gogeta infusing some of his positive energy into the ball while kicking it out of the atmosphere, turning the ball itself into blue-colored positive energy and creating a nuclear explosion which negated all the negative energy effects of the Shadow Dragons upon the planet. However, because the tremendous power he possessed in this form limited the fusion to an unprecedented ten minutes, this ploy exhausted a little too much time, thus he defused and was unable to finish him off. Omega Shenron was later defeated by Goku's Universal Spirit Bomb.
Main article: Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn
"Every force you create has an echo. Your own bad energy will be your undoing."
Gogeta makes an appearance during the end of the movie. After Goku defeats his first form, Janemba transforms into his Super form and becomes too powerful for Goku to defeat. Even with the help of the recently deceased Vegeta, he can not kill the demon. So, Goku quickly teaches the Fusion Dance to Vegeta. The Fusion Dance must be performed correctly to create a very powerful symbiotic warrior, so when Vegeta fails to extend his index finger properly in the final step of the dance, this results in a much weaker fusion warrior named Veku. Veku is no match for Janemba, and for thirty minutes he frantically evades the demon's attacks in comical fashion, clumsily stumbling and passing gas as part of his defense. The second time around, and with the assistance of Goku's ally Pikkon, the Fusion Dance is performed correctly, and Super Gogeta appears. After an amazing display of speed and power, Gogeta finishes Janemba off with the Stardust Breaker. With the elimination of the negative energy that had created Janemba, the creature reverts into the young ogre, Saike Demon, who ran off in fear after he made eye contact with Gogeta. Gogeta laughs in amusement, watching the boy running off. Later, Goku and Vegeta defuse and bid farewell to each other for the time being.
Gogeta is born during Goku and Vegeta's desperate attempts to fuse to gain the upper hand on Super Saiyan Broly. The two Saiyans fail twice before succeeding, and their new fusion wastes a bit of time trying to think of a different name other than Vegito, since that was the name for their Potara counterpart. A miffed Piccolo yells at the fusion to hurry him along, at which point he decides on "Gogeta" and uses Instant Transmission to return to the battlefield. Upon doing so, he is confronted by a battered Golden Frieza, who demands to know who Gogeta is. Gogeta replies that he is the fusion of Goku and Vegeta, explaining to the tyrant that he is far stronger than their power combined and that he'll deal with him later. He teleports again to halt Broly's battle with Whis, telling the angel that he can handle it from here. Whis lets Gogeta resume the fight for him. The fusion beckons for Broly to attack, which Broly easily complies with, though Gogeta immediately displays a clear advantage over the berserk Saiyan, effortlessly dodging and blocking nearly all of his attacks.
Soon enough, Gogeta decides to turn Super Saiyan to continue the battle, fighting evenly with Broly until his Super Kamehameha connects with Broly's Gigantic Omegastorm, shattering reality itself and sending the two into an entirely different dimension, where Broly powers up into his Legendary Super Saiyan form. Gogeta responds by unleashing Super Saiyan Blue, once more assuming a gigantic domineering advantage over Broly and clashing until they break back into the real world. Gogeta continues dodging and blocking Broly's attacks, flipping over his Gigantic Breath and battering him from behind with God Punisher before seemingly finishing the berserker with a Stardust Breaker, dealing significant damage that Broly recovers from thanks to his overwhelming stamina and defense. Gogeta smirks, but notices the appearance of Shenron and quickly changes his attitude. Broly rises from the crater left by the Stardust Breaker, drastically powering up and desperately trying to damage Gogeta in any way, but the fusion's unprecedented and overwhelming strength leaves Broly beaten badly. He kicks him around, sliding past Broly's massive beam to pummel him further and unleash his Meteor Explosion attack point-blank, creating a huge mushroom cloud and severely wounding the berserk Saiyan. Even the spectating Whis voices his admiration of Gogeta's strength, declaring the Saiyans' fight as good as finished.
With Broly beaten back into consciousness, Gogeta begins to charge the Full-Force Kamehameha, while a frantic Cheelai makes a wish on Shenron to send Broly back to the planet where she and Lemo found him. Broly became terrified by Gogeta's killing intent and overwhelming aura. As the Kamehameha nears Broly, the Saiyan is warped to Vampa at the last second, leaving the energy wave to shoot off harmlessly into space. Gogeta is momentarily confused, but smiles and dispels his aura.
"Not so fast."
Almost immediately thereafter, he confronts Golden Frieza and prevents him from shooting down the small spacecraft that Cheelai and Lemo were using to leave Earth by catching his arm. Frieza drops out of his Golden form, recognizing the consequences of fighting back, and leaves with a threat that he will eventually return and conquer Earth, quickly departing and eliciting a small chuckle from Gogeta.

Together with the Future Warrior they defeat Dark Omega Shenron, however before they can finish him off all three of them are swallowed up by Demigra's Wormhole. Demigra's Wormhole transports Gogeta and the Warrior to the mountains at night and then unleashes Dark Great Ape Baby, Dark Super 17, and Dark Omega Shenron upon the pair. However the combined might of Gogeta and the Future Warrior proves too great for even these 3 powerful villains and they are defeated. Afterward Gogeta compliments the Warrior on their strength before defusing.
Dragon Ball Heroes
After Vegito defused inside Super Buu, Super Majin Buu: Evil emerges from inside his body to battle against Beat, Note, Goku, and Vegeta. Having no other option, Goku and Vegeta use the Fusion Dance to fuse into Gogeta, as a Super Saiyan 2.
- Budokai 3
After the defeat of Kid Buu and Broly, Goku and Vegeta fuse and become Gogeta to fight Gotenks at the World Martial Arts Tournament, and easily beats them and complains their attitude is becoming similar to that of Mr. Satan.
- Raging Blast
Gogeta is seen in a What-If Saga where his opponent is his Potara Fusion counterpart, Vegito.
- Tenkaichi Tag Team
Gogeta only appears in a What-If scenario as, during the Buu Saga, the player is able to choose if Goku and Vegeta are going to fuse through the Potara earrings or the Fusion Dance in order to defeat Super Buu after he absorbs Gohan.
- Manga and Anime
Super Buu (Gohan absorbed) believes that the Fusion Dance of Goku and Vegeta would be unable to defeat him. While inside Super Buu, Goku suggests to Vegeta that they fuse again through the use of the Fusion Dance, suggesting that the fusion's power would be capable of defeating Super Buu (without absorptions). Old Kai was skeptical at the idea of a Fusion Dance between Goku and Vegeta being able to defeat Kid Buu, while he believed Vegito would be sufficient.
In Dragon Ball GT, Gogeta is shown to be able to effortlessly defeat Omega Shenron, who had previously made light work of Super Saiyan 4 Goku & Vegeta. According to Gogeta, he is capable of defeating Omega Shenron with a single finger if he wanted to. His ki control is so accurate, that he could change the nature of Omega's Negative Karma Ball into positive energy. As Gogeta took no damage from Omega Shenron's attacks, he was at least twice as strong as him.
Despite his obvious superiority over Omega Shenron, it was his own power that becomes Gogeta's downfall as the fused Saiyan's massive strength wears down the technique's time limit.
In Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn, as Veku he is able to survive a fight against Super Janemba for thirty minutes, even outrunning him at some points - though he is unable to deal any damage at all to the demon. Gogeta is formed by Goku and Vegeta because of a desperate need to get rid of the pure evil Super Janemba. Gogeta easily defeats Janemba using his Stardust Breaker move. As Super Gogeta took no damage from Super Janemba's attacks, he was at least twice as strong as him.
In Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, after Goku is severely beaten by the God of Destruction Beerus in two blows, Goku concluded that even fusing with Vegeta probably would not be strong enough to beat Beerus. Though, it is unclear if he was referring to doing Potara Fusion or doing the Fusion Dance.
In Dragon Ball Super: Broly, Gogeta, in base form, is able to effortlessly dodge attacks from Super Saiyan C-type Broly. In his own Super Saiyan state, Gogeta easily matches Broly blow for blow before soon overpowering him with his superior fighting prowess, maintaining the upper hand and landing powerful blows that visibly rattled and injured Broly while only being hit once. In fact, his Stardust Fall was strong enough to cause Broly agonizing pain, forcing him to activate an Energy Shield to repel it. The clash of their energy beams is so immensely powerful that the two Saiyans are able to break through space and time, sending them to a different dimension entirely. Even when Broly transformed into the Legendary Super Saiyan, Gogeta rapidly turned the tables with Super Saiyan Blue and proved to be able to decisively overpower the titanic foe, who was utterly unable to hit him. Gogeta's speed was such that Broly could not react to his attacks and after their initial exchange Broly was already exhausted while Gogeta had not lost stamina. He consistently overpowered Broly in clashes, the collision that returned them to Earth forcing Broly back with the impact. Even after the berserker withstood Gogeta's incredible assault, Gogeta continued to pummel him with never-ending attacks, constantly breaking through Broly's defenses until he nearly killed Broly with his Ultimate Kamehameha, even shocking the berserker back into partial sanity in the process. His power was enough to earn the praise of Whis, deeming his attacks as "truly magnificent". After the major ordeal, Gogeta foils Golden Frieza's attempt to kill Cheelai and Lemo, with the space tyrant opting to retreat, knowing full well of the fused Saiyan's might.
- Super Dragon Ball Heroes
In the anime version of the Universal Conflict Saga, when the combined might of Goku, Vegeta, Future Trunks, Piccolo, Android 17, Hit and Jiren proved completely ineffective against Hearts in his Ultimate Godslayer form, Goku and Vegeta were prompted to fuse into Gogeta. In the manga version while Android 17 and Piccolo are not present against the final battle against Ultimate Godslayer Hearts, Hearts proved to dominate Goku, Vegeta, Hit and Jiren in his Ultimate Godslayer form, proving every single one of their attacks ineffective by repelling them and forcing a massive force of gravity on the 4 as to make them not be able to stand up to defend themselves as he fires a God Meteor on them forcing Goku and Vegeta to rely on the Fusion Dance to battle against Ultimate Godslayer Hearts. To give Goku and Vegeta enough time to move to perform the Fusion Dance within the time he can manage, Jiren powers up into his Super Full Power form and stands up, using his ki to repel the gravity that is restraining them while Hit uses his Time-Skip to sneak up behind Heart to put him in a Time Prison to distract and stall Heart for a brief moment, prompting Goku and Vegeta, already at Super Saiyan Blue, to successfully fuse into Super Saiyan Blue Gogeta.
In the midst of Gogeta's transformation into Super Saiyan Blue while in his base form in the anime, Gogeta's energy was intense enough to cause the gathered Z Fighters to stumble back. In the anime upon his confrontation and engagement against Hearts in battle, the fused warrior proved to be more than a match for the foe, able to calmly dodge and repel everything Hearts launched at the fused warrior while simultaneously landing blows that visibly injured Hearts. Remaining completely unfazed by the power Hearts was using to summon his God Meteor, Gogeta was able to hold back the attack using a tremendous Big Bang Attack, forcing Hearts to power up to maximum. Though he seemed to only be able to match Hearts fully-powered God Meteor with his Ultimate Kamehameha, his attack was primarily what destroyed (albeit with assistance from Hit and Jiren) it, and powering up to the max, he was able to swiftly defeat Hearts afterwards, overpowering Hearts' punch with his own in a trade-off and subsequently defeating him and shattering the Universe Seed with a second blow.
In the manga version, just as Hearts is preparing to attack Hit, Gogeta instead confronts Hearts and is fast enough to be able to simultaneously land a solid barrage of blows on Hearts, noticeably weakening and exhausting Hearts and confirming Gogeta’s superior strength and advantage over Hearts that even Gogeta casually looks at Hearts and remains unfazed. Enraged, Hearts decides to power up into the the full extent of his power that he obtained through the Universe Seed and fire cube projectiles at Gogeta only for Gogeta to effortlesstly be able to dodge most of the cubes from hitting him until one of the cubes expands and was able to catch him off guard trapping him inside of a gravity prison and prompting the other cubic projectiles to hit him, causing an explosion. However, Gogeta comes out still unfazed and not physically injured from the explosion and proceeds to fire an Ultimate Kamehameha at Hearts, simultaneously engulfing Hearts with the God Meteor that Hearts fired toward Earth. In the manga version, Gogeta did not need assistance from Hit and Jiren and his Ultimate Kamehameha was strong enough to destroy the God Meteor by itself and kill Hearts at the same time.
It is stated by Hearts that Super Saiyan Blue Gogeta has enough power to defeat Zeno. During the aftermath, Jiren goes on to ask Gogeta on why his fusees never fused into him during the Tournament of Power.
- Video games
In Dragon Ball Fusions, Super Gogeta is an A-Rank fusion making him weaker than Vegito (Base/Super Saiyan) who is an S-Rank. However Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta is a G-Rank making him stronger than Vegito's base and Super Saiyan forms, and on par with the G-Rank Vegito Blue.
- Statements by authors and guidebooks
A 1995 issue of Weekly Shonen Jump comparing Gogeta to Vegito stated that Fusion Dance is able to draw out more power compared to Potara, and as such Gogeta was stronger than his counterpart Vegito and would defeat Vegito in a fight that took less than thirty minutes, but Vegito would win in a longer battle.
The resulting warrior from Potara fusion is more powerful than the equivalent Fusion Dance result, thus Gogeta is weaker than his counterpart Vegito.
Gogeta and Vegito are equally-matched ultimate trump cards.
Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta is the strongest character in the Dragon Ball Z/GT universe.
In the second Dragon Ball GT Perfect Files volume, Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta is said to be tens of times stronger than a regular Super Saiyan 4 (while Vegito from the Buu Saga is said to perhaps be in the league of a Super Saiyan 4 in the Chinese version of the anime comics for Dragon Ball GT: A Hero's Legacy).
Gogeta is also stated by the second Dragon Ball GT Perfect Files volume, to be able to defeat Omega Shenron with one finger, as he claimed himself in the anime. It also says that Gogeta is "the mightiest warrior in all dimensions." Gogeta is then mentioned to be dozens of times stronger than Super Saiyan 4 Goku and Vegeta. Though the biggest claim is that his power is limitless. This is likely because in the first volume, Super Saiyan 4 is described as a form pushing the user to their uppermost limits, and Gogeta is a fusion of two Super Saiyan 4's, and therefore goes beyond the limits of either Saiyan individually. Super Saiyan 4 Goku himself states he has no limits, although there is no evidence to support this claim.
- Flight - The ability to fly through the use of ki.

Next, he turns around to elbow the opponent in their face and spin kick them away. Finally, Gogeta teleports above the opponent and hook kicks them down into the ground, inflicting a massive amount of damage.
- Rising Vortex - A hard uppercut, followed by an elbow bash and a downward spinning kick.

- Failed Fusions
Main article: Failed Fusions
Veku (ベクウ Bekū) is the failed version of Gogeta who occurred when Goku and Vegeta attempted to fuse for the first time. He is one of several failed fusions present in the series. Vegeta fails to extend his index finger, resulting in an embarrassingly weak fusion which forms a fat fighter called "Veku" by South Kai; a name that comes from Vegeta and Goku. In this form, his speed is decreased and ki is extremely limited. Because of his state, Veku does not perform any ki attacks due to the large drop in power. Also, due to his fat body, he does not retaliate by punching and kicking. Instead, all he does against Super Janemba is pass gas and escape using what he calls his Rabbit Feet Technique. Just like a regular fusion, the time duration is 30 minutes before the two fighters defuse. This type of failed fusion is also seen with Goten and Trunks during the Majin Buu Saga, forming Fat Gotenks when attempting to fuse for the first time.
Concept arts for a skinny Veku are shown in Daizenshuu 6, in the Fusion Reborn area, but the character was not included in the final version of the movie. A skinny Veku card exists in Dragon Ball Carddass, released on March 22, 1995 (just after the release of Fusion Reborn on March 4, 1995). Skinny Veku is also in Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury, appearing when the player fails to do a proper fusion.
Veku makes two short appearances in Dragon Ball Super: Broly when Goku and Vegeta fail to perform the Fusion Dance properly the first time due to Goku's finger slipping below Vegeta's and the second time due to Goku being tilted at a 45-degree angle while Vegeta is tilted at a 60-degree angle.
- Super Saiyan

"*chuckles* Now it's our turn!"
Gogeta is referred to as Super Gogeta while in this form.
In Fusion Reborn, immediately after the successful fusion of Goku and Vegeta, Gogeta is at Super Saiyan as both halves (Goku and Vegeta) had previously mastered the transformation. Even though Janemba easily took care of Super Saiyan 3 Goku and Super Saiyan 2 Vegeta, he was unable to even hurt Gogeta at all, with a full-force punch from Janemba to Gogeta's face not doing anything. In a matter of seconds, Gogeta was able to destroy Janemba without any problem whatsoever. In Broly, Gogeta utilizes this form to battle Super Saiyan C-type Broly on equal grounds.
In Fusion Reborn, even while at this stage, he is still many times stronger than Goku as a Super Saiyan 3 and Vegeta as Super Saiyan 2. In Broly he is even stronger than both Goku and Vegeta in their Super Saiyan Blue forms in this state.
- God-like Saiyan
Main article: God-like Saiyan As Gogeta can become a Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan, he possess the God-like Saiyan state. In Broly, Gogeta appears in this state after the God-like Saiyans Goku and Vegeta successfully perform the Fusion Dance. After teleporting back to the Ice Continent via Instant Transmission, Gogeta briefly battles Super Saiyan Broly in his God-like Saiyan state before transforming into his Super Saiyan form.
- Super Saiyan Blue
Main article: Super Saiyan Blue
In Dragon Ball Super: Broly, with both of his fusion components able to use the said form, Gogeta himself is able to use Super Saiyan Blue. In this state, his power is great enough that he is able to compete against and even overwhelm Legendary Super Saiyan Broly. He was also shown surrounded by a blue and purple aura.

Gogeta's strongest form in Dragon Ball GT, where Goku and Vegeta both faced off against Omega Shenron as Super Saiyan 4. With the Fusion Dance, they successfully created the strongest warrior. Unlike Vegeta and Goku's Super Saiyan 4 forms, Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta has brown fur and fiery crimson hair, instead of the opposite, and he is the only Super Saiyan that features blue eyes. Unlike his previous appearance in Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn, Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta is somewhat playful and cocky (almost akin to Vegito's attitude), toying with Omega Shenron instead of easily defeating him. His speed in this form is so great that Omega Shenron cannot even see him move.

Gogeta has this form in Dragon Ball Heroes, introduced since the fifth mission of the Jaaku Mission series (JM5). In this form his hair gets a little bigger and sharper, this is more notable in the in-game. Due to both of his fusees possessing the form, Gogeta could have turned Super Saiyan 2 during his brief anime appearance, but he does not do so.
- Super Saiyan 3

Gogeta attains this form in Dragon Ball Heroes, introduced in the third mission of the Galaxy Mission series (GM3). Gogeta also appears in this form in the Dragon Ball Heroes: Victory Mission manga. Due to one of his fusees possessing the form, Gogeta could have turned Super Saiyan 3 during his brief anime appearance, but he does not do so.
- Golden Great Ape
Main article: Golden Great Ape
Gogeta is able to transform into a Golden Great Ape in Dragon Ball Heroes, attained in the eighth mission of the Jaaku Mission series (JM8). In this form Gogeta keeps his bang and even being large, the Metamoran clothes stretch like the Saiyans' armors, thus being able to retain them too. Like Vegeta, Gogeta is apparently able to retain his completely mental clarity and by extension control of himself. He uses the Ultra Soul Punisher as a technique, which is the same as Stardust Breaker, only stronger.
- Super Saiyan 4 Kaio-ken
Main article: Super Saiyan 4 Kaio-ken It is revealed in Xenoverse 2 that Gogeta can use the Kaio-ken while in Super Saiyan 4.

List of Characters Killed by Gogeta
- Janemba - Killed by Gogeta's Stardust Breaker.
- Hearts - Killed when Gogeta punched the Universe Seed on his chest.
- Similar to all the other fusions, his name is a portmanteau of his two hosts (Goku and Vegeta)
- In Fusion Reborn, Super Gogeta is not seen as cocky whatsoever when compared to his Super Saiyan 4 form and his Dragon Ball Super counterpart, and eliminates his enemy quickly. As a Super Saiyan 4 however, he acts somewhat similarly to his Potara Fusion counterpart Vegito, as they both toy around with their respective opponent in order to achieve their true goal. In the Japanese version, Goku explains this is due to the massive power of the form and his excitement over Vegeta actually wanting to fuse for once.
- In Vegito's case however, ironically, the personality changes are inverted somewhat, with Super Vegito being more cocky, and prone to toying around, while as Vegito Blue (Super Saiyan Blue) being more serious, and aggressive in combat, using a very different combo string than what he did previously.
- Gogeta is the only fused Saiyan character (Potara or Fusion Dance) to successfully defeat a villain without the fusion wearing off. He defeats Janemba, Broly and Hearts without coming close to running out of time, whereas Gotenks defused and was later absorbed before he was able to defeat Super Buu, and Vegito pretended to be absorbed by Buu to save his friends but the Fusion wore out before he could actually defeat Buu and Fused Zamasu.
- Super Gogeta only has two lines in Fusion Reborn his lines are "Paikuhan, I'll get him back for you!" and "I am not Goku or Vegeta, I am the one who will defeat you!". In the Funimation dub, his lines are: "I am not Goku or Vegeta, I am Gogeta! It's over Janemba, I have come for you!" and "Every force you create has an echo. Your own bad energy will be your undoing!" Also, he smirks after Saike (who became Janemba) runs away after being defeated.
- A union of Goku and Vegeta via the Fusion Dance is mentioned in the manga/anime when Goku and Vegeta are trapped in Buu's body. Goku suggests performing the dance in order to defeat Buu, but Vegeta declines, already knowing what the dance is, refusing to merge again.
- However, in Broly, Vegeta is unaware of the dance until mentioned by Goku as he heard it from Trunks. He realizes what the dance is and refuses to perform the dance at first as he believes it’s moronic but decides to be taught the dance as he had no idea on how to perform the fusion in order to defeat Broly and protect his family.
- Also, in Dragon Ball GT, Vegeta tells Goku to perform the Fusion Dance much to Goku's delights. This might be reference to Dragon Ball Super: Broly and Universe Conflict Saga.
- In the English dub of Broly, Gogeta's voice has more of Vegeta's voice heard than Goku's voice making him sound the same as Vegito for some odd reason when Gogeta normally has more of Goku's voice heard than Vegeta's.
- However, in Broly, Vegeta is unaware of the dance until mentioned by Goku as he heard it from Trunks. He realizes what the dance is and refuses to perform the dance at first as he believes it’s moronic but decides to be taught the dance as he had no idea on how to perform the fusion in order to defeat Broly and protect his family.
- Gogeta's base form first appears in Buu's Fury. When Gogeta is defeated in Buu's Fury, his hair turns black, like any Super Saiyan who is defeated.
- In Raging Blast and in Dragon Ball Heroes, Gogeta has lightning surrounding his aura which is typical of the Super Saiyan 2 and Super Saiyan 3 transformations. However, this might be in order to show Gogeta's power and should not be confused as a Super Saiyan 2 Gogeta. When Gogeta's aura charges in the game, it does not have the same sound effects as it would have on a Super Saiyan 2 or Super Saiyan 3.
- A hidden audio file for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 shows that Gogeta can use the Kaio-ken.
