Would Goku actually give Thanos the infinity stones?

I mean, I know Goku isn't the brightest person but I don't think he'd knowingly give Thanos the stones if he knew what he'd do with them. Like the guy seriously thought Zeno wouldn't erase the losing universe in the ToP, he thought it was a normal tournament and forgot he was dealing with a genocidal child god. Like I've seen jokes/memes where Goku gives the stones over in exchange for a 1v1 fight with Thanos, but do you think he'd actually go through with it?

Maybe if he didn't know what he intended to do, no if he does. Honestly I think the only person who'd give him the infinity stones will full knowledge would be Cell arc Vegeta(Android 18 getting absorbed was basically his fault and he was basically a sociopathic bastard who didn't care for anyone other than himself until Future Trunks was offed).

If he understood that with the Infinity Stones, Thanos would be so powerful (and evil) he wouldn't even need to fight, Goku definitely wouldn't do it, he's not that dumb... I hope. He understands that beings like Zeno and Daishinkan are at that level of untouchable supremacy where they could kill him with a glance so he has the common sense to not challenge them. Also, I can't say Goku's exact policy on weapons or artificial upgrades but he generally seems to prefer opponents to be naturally strong, and at the very least fightable.

I could only see Goku maybe being curious about the Power Stone for obvious reasons, but that's the limit. Reality, Space, Mind... you can't punch those, so he won't be interested.

He'd probably give him the power stone if he felt beating on him was too easy otherwise.

But beyond that if told he'd get zeno like powers and wipe out half the universe without them having a fair fight he'd be against it.
Yamcha almost certainly did not cheat on Bulma:
He was afraid of Women, Bulma was the flirty one.
Yamcha wanted to get married (it was his gonna be his wish)
He suggested they settle down in the Trunks saga.
Alternate future Trunks is not a reliable source.
Toriyama wanted new SSJ Kids and not make new characters.

I think it's a coin toss when it comes to original story Goku, as he's shown multiple times that he values human life, but he also gave Cell a senzu bean. If I had to say one way or another, I'd say no. Despite making mistakes, I think he's smart enough to realize that such a thing would come at too high of a cost.

Modern/Super Goku ? He'd sacrifice 10 multiverses if it meant getting a good fight.

If someone explained to him that they were as precious as his grandfather's Dragon Ball, then I think he'd guard them seriously.
"Don't take pleasure in destruction!" / "I will not let you destroy my world!"

No because he’d understand that Thanos would be getting an artificial upgrade.. Which is something, Goku himself isn’t a fan of.

It’d be like letting Freeza use the Dragon Balls.
