Which Dragon Ball Fusion Is Stronger: Gogeta Or Vegito? It's Easy

Dragon Ball Super Gogeta Vegito

There are two different fusion forms for Goku and Vegeta in the world of Dragon Ball -- Gogeta and Vegito -- but which one is stronger? The answer is quite simple, thanks to Dragon Ball Super. Having originated in Dragon Ball Z, fusion is a concept that allows two characters to "fuse" into one being. The point of the technique is to drastically increase their power level. It also combines their thoughts and personalities into one mind. Two of the fusion methods in Dragon Ball are the Fusion Dance and the Potara Earrings.

Goku and Vegeta have used both techniques. After being given the Potara Earrings in the Buu Saga, Goku and Vegeta combine to form "Vegito", who at this point in time was the show's strongest character. In the Dragon Ball Z non-canon movie, Fusion Reborn, the two heroes perform the Fusion Dance to become "Gogeta" and defeat Janemba. The Fusion Dance is repeated again in Dragon Ball GT, which has since been removed from canon. Gogeta doesn't actually become part of the show's continuity until the 2018 film, Dragon Ball Super: Broly.

There's been much debate over which fusion form is more formidable in combat. Both have been instrumental in battling some of the strongest adversaries in Dragon Ball history, including Buu, Zamasu, and now Broly. While on the surface the two appear to be on equal footing, Gogeta is superior to Vegito for one very simple reason: Vegito has a power limit.

It's established in Dragon Ball Z that Potara fusion lasts forever, but this is retconned by Dragon Ball Super which reveals that it actually only lasts for an hour when the earrings are worn by mortals. However, the fusion lasting an hour still sounds a lot better than the time constraints for the Fusion Dance, which only allows Goku and Vegeta to be "Gogeta" for thirty minutes. The up-side to this is that Gogeta can fight with all his power, and even break through to his Super Saiyan Blue form without worrying about consequences.

No matter what Gogeta does, the fusion lasts the full thirty minutes, whereas the Potara fusion is rather imperfect. This is surprising, considering that it's a divine technique. As previously noted, the Potara fusion should last an hour, but Dragon Ball Super has proven that this rule has its limitations. Against Zamasu, Vegito accessed the Super Saiyan Blue form and fought for less than fifteen minutes before the fusion subsided. Goku and Vegeta defused after Vegito hit Zamasu with the Final Kamehemeha. Apparently, the amount of energy dispensed by Vegito was too much. Gogeta doesn't have these restrictions and can hit his opponents with the full force of his power, making him the stronger warrior.
