Quick thought: Goku becoming an old man doesn't have to be depressing or anything. He's such a light-hearted character, and I'm sure he would still act the way he currently does despite of his greater limitations.

To be fair, we've already seen an old aged Goku in Dragon Ball GT's episode 64 and I'm pretty satisfied with it.

On top of that, Dragon Ball GT's ending was beautiful and wrapped it all up perfectly, in my opinion. GT is where Classic Dragon Ball died and Modern Dragon Ball was moreso revived with Battle of Gods than Dragon Ball Kai.

I think he's fine the way he is but he'd be a pretty badass old man.

That's my headcanon idea of why the characters look younger in Dragon Ball Super. This will explain why Bulma decided to have a second kid at such advanced age. I mean you would think someone who likes to be beautiful wouldn't miss an oppurtunity to use the Dragon Balls to make a wish, especially if she has the radar and the friends to find them easily.

I don't want to see Goku look like a fighting raisin. I feel he will change too much even if he actually never began the series as an adult. That's a reason why I thought GT was a depressing concept because the cast was already past their prime and the characters seemed to had died both literaliy and figuratevily.
Which characters die in GT? I've never seen it.
Not that many but Piccolo died permamentally and majin buu sort of died by becoming part of Uub and his traits became part of Uub.

You don't see it, but at the very end, in the flashforward, it's clear that everyone except Pan has passed away.

Personally i wouldn't mind seeing Goku old, after all at this point in Super he is in his early 40's. So it's not like we haven't seen him age before. It would feel natural.

Not to mention that, thanks to Toriyama, they don't even need to look old until they're 80 anyways.

Heck if we count all his time in the time chamber, he could be in his fifties at this point ha ha

Just for fun, I did some quick math to see how old he would be physically by the end of the original manga. After subtracting the years he was dead (in which he wouldn't age) and adding his days in the Room of Spirit & Time (which are the equivalent of a year each), the results say that he is about 44 years old.

Doing the same for Vegeta, he's actually 57 physically (makes sense, as he's never been dead for a very long time and used the Time Chamber a bit more)
