Schemmel was asked about Goku’s capacity for forgiveness in regards to bringing Broly to Beerus’ planet in the new film, but Schemmel said that it’s less about forgiveness and more about Goku’s lust for battle.

“Really what it is, is Goku is like Quagmire, but instead of for ladies, it’s for fighting. So he’s bringing the ladies, as it were, Broly, to the planet because he wants more good fighting. So I don’t know if it’s about forgiveness and openness as much as it is “that guy’s strong. I want to fight him. Let’s bring him!” And he doesn’t give a shit about … like he brought Cell to King Kai’s planet and they blew up King Kai. So Goku’s … I hate to use this phrase or this word, but I don’t know. We’ll say absent-minded versus selfish, you know what I mean? The endgame for Goku is, “am I fighting someone strong today?” That’s the endgame for Goku. So while I appreciate you casting positive forgiveness and stuff on to Goku, I have a hard time believing that that’s true.”
