He's the protagonist of one of the biggest anime of all time, so you know there are some epic Goku quotes that stayed with you after watching DBZ. For this list, we're going to rank the greatest Goku quotes of all time, with the help of your votes. Vegeta would probably call these Kakarot quotes, but the rest of us know him as Goku - the lovable, if dangerous, hero of Dragon Ball.

Whether these Goku quotes are inspirational, like his speech to Frieza about being the hope of the universe, or epic, like when he first turned SS3, they are all meaningful in some way. Although Goku has a gentle nature about him, he always turns up the heat when it comes to protecting his friends. If you were ever bullied as a kid, you were probably inspired when Goku said this epic line to Frieza:

I don't understand why you call Saiyans by such mindless names. The only thing it does is reveal your own fear and ignorance. I guess name calling is your only attack, because you're too weak to challenge me any other way.

Vote up your favorite Goku quotes below so they rise to the top, and add your own if they're not already here.
