However, the creator Akira Toriyama revealed that he was not created ideally to be a heroic character. He wanted Goku to have a dark side too. In an interview Akira quoted, “There’s how, basically, Son Goku from Dragon Ball doesn’t fight for the sake of others, but because he wants to fight against strong guys.

I guess I couldn’t quite get them to grasp the elements of “poison” that slip in and out of sight among the shadows.”
