But Can He Beat Goku refers to a catchphrase that has been used by some fans of the anime/manga series Dragon Ball to represent the strength of the main character Goku. It's also used as exploitable by adding it to some memes such as changing the original dialogue.


The original date of the phrase's usage is unknown, but it is likely to have been used in online debates regarding fictional fighters for several years. The earliest recorded of the usage was on June 14th, 2018 by 9gag user stoney_stonface[1] in which the user expressed their dismay at how Dragon Ball fans will often proclaim the strength of series main character Goku when discussing the strength of characters from other franchises.

So fucking what if a character is strong or not? This is Bob, he can do anything his writer says he can, and he can beat anyone from anywhere at anytime. There. Easy. Reply
