I’m right about the part where you fight Garuda, but this annoying inquisitor is constantly getting in the way and forcing me on more fetch quests. Can you just deal with him right away or at least make it more interesting? I just really wish my character would just deck him in the face?

Seeing as you are a fan of crossovers.
I have a challenge for you.
It is a Dragon Ball and Marvel Comics crossover.
The Marvelous Monkey King Part 0: Character depictions. All the characters are as cannon like as possible but they also grow for the better. Son Goku eventually becomes like the character we see in the original English dub after growing as a person. Son Goku is also given credit for his heroics over the years. But the major exception is Raditz who along with Nappa and Vegeta turn good.
The Marvelous Monkey King Part 1: The World of the Story. The Universe of the story has elements of the main Dragon Ball Universe with the Kai's and Alien races and also the Marvel Cosmic Hierarchy, with all the Gods of Legend in the universe of Earth 616 Marvel and abstract Cosmic Concepts and the various alien races along with whatever elements you bring from Earth 616 in Marvel and various other Marvel universes for whatever world you want to make.
But their are some changes to the Dragon Ball Universe going into later Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z.
1. The position of Guardian of Earth is one that the Gods of Earth's Legends created to act as a messenger as well as be their emissary and ambassador to the Kai’s and the other cosmic realms and to the other world's realms of the Divine. And he is also meant to be the protector of Earth but is still mortal hence why their is more than one but they all have God Ki.
Shin and Old Kai are not the only surviving Supreme Kai’s of Goku's universe. The Supreme Kai Avatars in Dragon Ball Heroes are here. They are Shin’s juniors. After the fight with Kid Buu the Supreme Kai's that were absorbed are restored and train the new generation of Kai's. Between the end of Z and the beginning of Dragon Ball GT they reach Super Saiyan Blue levels of power. The Supreme Kai is meant to create new worlds and races to seed the universe they inhabit with life and they have to report to the Living Tribunal.
Dabura and The Demon Gods in the Dragon Ball Xenoverse and Dragon Ball Heroes games are here for the events of the Buu Saga.
2. Their are no Gods of Destruction. Galactus fills that role. Their are also no Dragon Ball Angels as their are actual Biblical Angels in Marvel Comics as well as Angels in the Tenth Realm. Their is also no Xeno as the One Above All and the Living Tribunal fill that role.
3. Bardock convinced the Saiyans of Freiza’s attempt to wipe them out and there are enough survivors for the Universe Seven Saiyans to not be on the edge of extinction or need to breed with other species to survive. The Saiyans reform and work to get revenge on Freiza.
Bardock becomes a mixture of his incarnation in the Episode of Bardock Special and his Dragon Ball Super incarnation with his powers and character development.
4. The main cast are children when you start the story and become teenagers when you go into the later parts of Dragon Ball. All the main characters are in their twenties when you go into Dragon Ball Z and their mid thirties when you go into Dragon Ball Super. In Dragon Ball GT they reach their 40’s.
The Marvelous Monkey King Part 2: The Adventures of Son Goku. Son Goku has to crash on Earth and is raised in Kun-Lung until he decides to go out into the world. Son Goku's starting adventures are the early days of Dragon Ball and Goku gradually becomes aware of the larger world of the Marvel Universe in his travels but it is both Bulma and Betsy Braddock who seek out the Dragon Balls and after his first adventure meets the various super hero teams of Earth and then goes down the latter events of Dragon Ball. Goku has to join The Avengers, The Fantastic Four, and The X-Men on several adventures when he gets older.
Goku when he grows up goes down the events of Dragon Ball Z but somewhat altered as both Raditz and Nappa also turn good and the best events of Dragon Ball Super(Such as actually saving Trunk's Future for good)along with some of major events of the Marvel 616 Earth and elements of Dragon Ball GT for the finale.
The Marvelous Monkey King Part 3: The Powers of the Main Saiyans.
Over the course of the story Goku gains everything he has officially(that includes filler) to keep up with Marvel's heavy hitters.
Goku gets everything he has from across the franchise just to have a chance against the major villains of Marvel and prove himself as one of the big dogs. Son Goku gets everything he has from Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT, and Dragon Ball Super,(Son Goku gets Super Saiyan Kaio-ken, in Dragon Ball Super, Son Goku keeps the God Ki in his base, gets Super Saiyan God, Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken, Super Saiyan Blue Perfected and learns to use Hakai). And Son Goku eventually gets all the abilities and transformations he has from the non Serial Films and in the cannon ones.
Son Goku also eventually masters all his official transformations. In order Son Goku masters the Oozaru, Kaioken, Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan Kaio-ken, Super Saiyan 2, Super Saiyan Three, Golden Oozaru, Super Saiyan 4, Super Full Power Saiyan 4 and Goku also gains Super Full Power Saiyan 4 Limit Breaker as well and anything you can use from the other various Dragon Ball video games. And he has all the abilities those forms have and the transformation he has are at their best.
And after Goku masters his mortal Saiyan Biology and Primal Powers their has to be an arc to symbolize how far he has come as he becomes more heroic through experience. And to Hammer that point in, at the end of that arc Goku needs to lift Thor's Hammer when he eventually proves himself to be Worthy and has all of Thor's powers added to his own. This must happen after Goku becomes the guy we knew in the original English Dub.
You must give Goku's new base form the power he has with God Ki in Dragon Ball Super and all the powers of Marvel 616 Thor's powers added to Son Goku's. Thor's strength, durability, energy manipulation, ability to survive in space, weather manipulation, and Lifespan and divine essence ends up merging with Goku's body and Life Force. But Goku keeps all his Saiyan and Super Saiyan abilities like the Zenkai Boost and all the various Super Saiyan transformations he has worked to master.
Then in Asgard Son Goku learns to master his new Asgardian Powers and develop the Super Saiyan God Forms. This is where Goku gets Super Saiyan God, Super Saiyan Blue, Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken, Super Saiyan Blue Perfected.
In the Tournament of Power Goku gets Ultra Instinct -Sign- and Ultra Instinct -Omen- and after the Moro Arc he completely masters Ultra Instinct.
Son Goku gets everything he has officially with a bit of a boost so he can be one of the greatest heroes in Marvel and one of The Avengers, Fantastic 4 and X-Men's big guns.
Their are a lot of people who can kill Son Goku unless he gets a power boost. Here is a list of Villains who you can be can kick Goku's butt without even trying if Goku does not get an upgrade and these are the ones I am aware of, their are probably more that I am not aware of.
Magneto is one, Set, Dormammu, Umar, Galactus, Cull the Serpent, Doctor Doom, The other Heralds of Galactus, The Dark Phoenix, The Sentry, The Void, Thanos in his base, Thanos with the Infinity Gauntlet, The Beyonder, The Celestial's, and The Beyonders.
Molecule Man, The Juggernaut at his best, Onslaught, The Red Hulk, The One Below All, Abraxas, The Black Winter, Gorr the God Butcher, Malekith the Accursed, Surtur, Ymir, The Midgard Serpent, Hela, Those Who Sit Above in Shadow, Knull The Symbiote God and his Grendels. The Big Bad of the Shinto Pantheon is one of them. Some of The Olympians, The Titans and The Giants of Greek Myth can be added to the list as well. Hades the Greek God and some of his servants can kick his ass as well. A lot of Gods and Cosmic Level threats can wreck his shit. And that is excluding those with Cosmic Artifacts like the Cosmic Cube.
Marvel has a lot of villains that are monsters so he needs a buff. But to make sure that Son Goku is not impossible to beat here are some weaknesses.
1. If Goku delves to deep into his anger he has to run the risk of going into Thor's Warriors Madness. He has the strength boost Thor has in the Warrior's madness but he can lose control of himself if he is not careful. It is a double edge sword.
2. Son Goku's tail can still be grabbed.
3. Goku still has a limit to the amount of energy he has in his body.
4. Goku's love of battle can get the best of his judgment.
Now here are the ideas for Vegeta and Broly.
For Vegeta's character arc, you have to do what he has been through in canon. For his abilities. You do what I have requested for Goku in terms of his official abilities and longevity but apply that to Vegeta. He gets everything that he has officially but in Super to differ himself from Goku, Vegeta gets the power cosmic.
For Raditz, see MasakoX's What if Raditz Turned Good? for ideas.
For Nappa, see MasakoX's What If Nappa turned Good? for ideas.
Now for Broly. Broly has got to get all of his Z Era abilities and his Super Era Level of power and Abilities when you bring Broly in.
Broly has all of his Z Era powers and those from some of the games such as his Legendary Super Saiyan 3 and Super Saiyan 4. But is his Super Era Self and all the powers of his Super Era self, other wise he is screwed by cosmic threats. Broly needs to be a beast both because Goku needs a challenge and because the bad guys can kick Broly's ass without them.
But to balance it out here is his weaknesses. Broly needs to disperse some of overwhelming power like Kale in Dragon Ball Super other wise it could kill him and he can lose control of himself in his rage.
For Broly's character development. What planet he lands on and what his upbringing is like is up to you. But Broly is a mixture of his Dragon Ball Z, his Dragon Ball Z Abridged and his Dragon Ball Super selves until he gains self control. Broly is a soft spoken kind Tarzan like character but he cannot control his rage and when he gives in to his anger he turns into the monster his Z Era Self was. But that is because something messed with Broly's head.
Then Bruce Banner and The Hulk, Rick Jones, Doc Samson, Betty Ross(who gains all the powers and forms she has obtained other the years in Earth 616 and learns to control them to help the good guys), Red Hulk, Jennifer Walters aka She Hulk, they can all help Broly control his strength and his anger in that regard and also heal his shattered psyche.
The Marvelous Monkey King Part 4: Saiyan Parings and The Next Generation.
Son Goku being Goku is a bit dense when dealing with anything but especially love until he learns what his women feel for him and how much they love him and he grows to love them all and keep all his ladies happy.
Son Goku falls in love, gets a harem, and have kids with these lovely ladies. 1. Chichi. 2. Jean Grey. 3. She Hulk. 4. Brunhilde the original Valkyrie. 5. Black Widow Natasha Romanoff. 6. Mocking Bird.
Vegeta gets to fall in love with and have kids with these gorgeous women, 1. Bulma, 2. Elizabeth 'Betsy' Braddock, 3. Hildegard(Asgardian). 4. Electra.
Raditz falls in love with and gets kids with 1. Launch. 2. Domino. 3. Astrid(Asgardian). 4. Janet Van Dyne the Wasp. 5. Jessica Drew. 6. Monica Rambeau.
Nappa, falls in love with and gets kids with 1. Mystique. 2. Ophelia Sarkissian, 3. Madame Hydra. 4. Hela. 5. Umar.
And for Broly he gets to be with and have kids with 1. Cheelai. 2. Lorelei. 3. Wanda Maximoff. 4. Gamora. 5. Greer Grant, aka Tigra.
When Goku, Broly, Nappa, Raditz, and Vegeta have kids, they must father a new generation of powerhouses, and if they are mutants they could give Apocalypse and the higher cosmic beings a run for their money. If Son Goku has kids after he gets all his power ups they could be Super Saiyan Mutants and some could be Super Saiyan Mutant Demigods.
On Earth they would be hated with the sheer amount of power they have and also some being Mutants. But they maybe welcome in Asgard.
The Marvelous Monkey King Part 5: The Ending and The Legacy Of Goku.
After Goku, Vegeta, Raditz, Nappa, Broly, the strongest of their harems, the strongest Z Fighters and Mightiest of The Avengers win the Tournament of Power and put down Freiza and destroy Moro the Planet Eater Goku and Vegeta train the Saiyans how to reach and use the Super Saiyan transformations, and proper Ki control to defend the universe when they are done and Goku trains Uub to protect Earth when he is done.
After a time skip the events of Dragon Ball GT play out altered except for the regular Dragon Balls having their GT dark side and the final episodes and ending. Dragon Ball GT has to be the Avengers Endgame of the story. A homage to everything before and the grand finale to an era.
The team must collect the Black Star Dragon Balls from across the universe because the Pilaf Gang made a wish on them. After the Baby Saga because the cast overused Earth’s Dragon Balls the Shadow Dragons are born and rampage across the Earth and they create a rift connecting Earth to all the various Hell's allowing all the villains that have killed to rampage across the earth furthering the damages to the planet.
But at the final battle after Goku and his companions defeat the Shadow Dragons and the returned bad guys Goku has to leave with Shenron to prevent people from relying on the Dragon Balls and him until the Earth can stand on its own.
To help Earth evolve Krillin and Tien bring back the Turtle and Crane Houses of Martial Arts and Vegeta also open his own martial arts school. Piccolo also goes to Namek to teach his kin his fighting style, techniques, and trains them to reach his power level.
The children of Goku, Broly, Nappa, and Vegeta, become super heroes and after that career they work to better the world. For example Son Gohan becomes The Great Saiyaman and after he retires from that job Goten takes up the mantle of Saiyaman and eventually his father's mantle, The Marvelous Monkey King.
When Gohan retires from Super Heroics he writes the Ki Manuel’s from Dragon Ball Online and builds his own martial arts school with all the various techniques and training regiments Gohan and his father learned as it’s teachings to help Earth.
Nappa, Raditz, and Vegeta also open their own martial arts school to help and so do all of Marvel's Martial Artists.
When Goku, Shenron, and Earth’s Dragon Balls left the mortal world Goku, Shenron, and the Earth’s Dragon Balls ascend to a higher plane of existence and Goku evolved into something more than a Supreme Kai, or a Super Saiyan God. When Son Goku left he also gained all the powers and immortality of Hanuman and Sun Wukong from the actual myths of Hanuman and Sun Wukong along with what Son Goku has earned.
To the Earth Son Goku is one of the strongest Super Heroes on Earth who served on The Avengers, Fantastic 4, and The X Men. And he is a hero who has shown the human race what can happen if you are good and that you can go beyond your limits and that he is the true spiritual successor of Sun Wukong The Monkey King.
To aliens of his universe Son Goku is Kakarot the youngest son of the Saiyans prophet and one of the Super Saiyans who showed the Saiyan race what can happen if you are good. Kakarot is also seen as a hero who defeated the worst monsters from across the cosmos.
Among the Gods and Cosmic Entities, Son Goku is known as one who through hard work achieved a level of Enlightenment, surpassed most Gods, and at the end of his journey became an Immortal and Invulnerable Warrior God who will protect the Universe but only when truly needed.
That is the Legacy of Goku.

*clap hands together* Oh, god, I've been waiting for this to update. I'm eager for the next chapter. I wonder if you will be doing all of the expansions for FFXIV with Alex, Luna, and Noctis? Oh, will you also have Alex and Noctis do the Crystal Tower as well? I can't wait to see that interaction with a certain someone. *giggles*
| Kairitrion Cerulean chapter 13 . 3/21/2020
Y'sale falling off a tree when Noctis offhandedly mentioned Shiva was hilarious.
It just occured to me afterwards that if Noctis ever fights the Eden primals with the WOL , their perspectives might clash and make a different primal too lol.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! Such good world building! I'm thoroughly in love with this story again, especially since I've picked up Final Fantasy 14 for myself. Looking forward to the slaying of Garuda!

Great to see an update on this. Can't wait for what will happen in the next chapter.
| The Megaevolved Pony chapter 11 . 5/22/2019
Nice work! I'm highly anticipating the next chapter; work at your own pace and this story will come to a fruitious conclusion that you will be happy with!
| NightmareKnight1 chapter 4 . 4/22/2019
Even though I've gone through the plot of 14 a few times, and have a severely overplayed character, reading this story really makes me want to go back and enjoy the story of FFXIV another time. The game's damn good, and I'm really looking forward to the ShB launch in a couple months.
It's sad to see that this story hasn't been updated in a bit over half a year, but so far I'm really enjoying what you've written so far. Keep up the good work, and here's hoping you find the time to write more.
| Lovnag chapter 11 . 2/21/2019
This is pretty good.
