Dragon Ball Super Manga
Dragon Ball Super is a Japanese manga and sequel to the Dragon Ball manga by Toyotaro and overseen by Akira Toriyama. The manga began in June 2015, serialized in the monthly magazine V-Jump. The manga is also being released in English by Viz Media starting from 2017. A Dragon Ball Super anime is being produced alongside the manga.
Shueisha released the first volume of Dragon Ball Super in Japan on April 14, 2016. It included chapter 1 through 9. The second volume containing chapters 10 through 15 was released on December 2, 2016.
Viz will start publishing volumes in English starting in 2017.
The Dragon Ball Super manga picks up the story of Goku and his adventures following the defeat of Buu but prior to the final chapters involving the 28th World Martial Arts Tournament. While an adaptation of Toriyama's outline it has many storyline differences when compared to the movies and the Dragon Ball Super anime and follows it's own continuity.
Akira Toriyama writes plot outlines which Toyotarō uses as a basis for the stories and Toriyama personally helps put the manga together. Toyotarō creates the dialogue and illustrations, expanding, adding, and changing elements from Toriyama's plan as he deems appropriate. Akira Toriyama believes Toyotarō's freedom to change the story makes the final product better.Akira Toriyama also checks through all of Toyotarō's storyboards for the manga. To accomplish this, Toyotarō has his draft sent to Toriyama, who goes over it and then sends back parts that he drew himself with corrections to Toyotarō in order to get the final product perfect.
Akira Toriyama has a very positive view of Toyotarō's manga, noting that Toyotarō is always accurate when drawing the manga, unlike with the anime where he always has to ask for things to be fixed, and is grateful that Toyotarō is drawing the continuation of his story.He also believes that if the animators for the anime use Toyotarō's manga as a reference it will keep them on track.
Unlike the anime, the manga does not include an adaptation of Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’, likely in part due to it already having been partially adapted into manga form.

The story begins with a brief recap of Goku's victory over Buu. Since then, the world is once again at peace. Goku, due to imposition of Chi-Chi, is in a growing field with a tractor, while he recalls his fight against Kid Buu. At that time, Goten brings lunch to Goku and starts helping his father. Then, Goku closes his eyes, becomes Super Saiyan and imagines himself fighting and defeating Frieza and Cell. When ready to "attack" Kid Buu, his thoughts are interrupted by a shout from Goten, who was distracted by his father and almost fell down a ravine with the tractor.
Goku saves both and then Mr. Satan arrives after having received the Prize of World Peace. Satan offers the prize money to Goku, but Goku refuses because the human was also involved in the fight against Kid Buu. Goten tells his father that with the money, Chi-Chi would surely let him go training with King Kai and Goku accepts his part.
Meanwhile, somewhere in the universe, Beerus is on a planet with Whis and aliens are offering a banquet so the God of Destruction does not destroy their planet. However, the aliens poison the food with the intent to kill him, but it doesn't work. In the end, Beerus destroys the planet as he had said he would. However, one of the dishes ("Soup Yasai Jinkot", a pun with Super Saiyajin God) reminds him of the Super Saiyan God in a dream he had, so Whis and Beerus decide to return to his planet to remember more about that dream.
Meanwhile, on the Sacred World of the Kais, Kibito Kai and Old Kai are distressed by the God of Destruction.

Differences from anime
Goku does not have his mental battle with Frieza, Cell and Buu.
Beerus destroys the entire insectoid planet whereas in the anime he only destroys half the planet due to being mixed on the meal.
The appearance of the aliens that Beerus wipes out are different when compared to the anime with a more insectoid appearance.
Battle of Gods is the fourth chapter in the Dragon Ball Super manga.
Goku has an idea for Beerus to meet the Super Saiyan God. Goku tells Bulma to get the Dragon Balls ready so he could summon Shenron. Shenron is summoned and is asked how to create a Super Saiyan God. Shenron tells the group that six righteous Saiyans are needed to create a Saiyan God. There are only five Saiyans present on Earth but however, Videl reveals that she is pregnant, carrying hers and Gohan's quarter Saiyan child. The six perform the ritual pouring their energy into Goku. With success, Goku becomes a Super Saiyan God. Everyone is shocked at seeing Goku's appearance and Beerus is excited to start their battle. Goku is ready to fight too and says that if he wins, Earth gets to exist. Beerus replies and says that no one in the universe is stronger than he is. The two are prepared and ready to fight.
Goku begins by charging at Beerus but gets blocked. Goku expresses that he couldn't believe a world like that existed. Continuing their battle, Beerus is impressed by Goku. Goku and Beerus fly toward the city and fight there. After exchanging blows, Goku is adjusting to the form which is noted out by Beerus. The two clash again and fight their way toward the stratosphere in space. Their battle is causing the universe to shatter making planets explode.
With the Super Saiyan God being temporary and Goku's power is running out, Beerus decides to use a Sphere of Destruction. The launch of the Sphere of Destruction is heading in Goku's and Earth's direction. Goku however has more power to be able to fire a Kamehameha Wave and fire back at Beerus. The Super Saiyan God form has run out and Beerus is fascinated by Goku's efforts and decides to destroy Earth on his next visit. Beerus wishes Goku to reach new heights in power and reveals to him that there are twelve universes and he is the God of Destruction from the seventh universe, their current living world. He also mentions that Whis is not only his attendant but his master making him stronger than him. Beerus wishes Goku farewell and leaves with Whis.
Meanwhile, on the Sacred World of the Kais, Kibito Kai had been to New Namek and attained their Dragon Balls. Old Kai notices the Champa is on the other side of the universe and tells Kibito Kai to return them but Kibito Kai makes use of them and wishes to defuse becoming Supreme Kai and Kibito again. Old Kai thinks they wasted the power of the Potara, not putting it in use. After Beerus had left the scene, Old Kai wonders about the lasting peace of the universe.
Out in the universe, members of the Galactic Frieza Army finds a Dragon Ball that is bigger than normal. Guarana orders his soldiers to report the headquarters of the sighting of a Dragon Ball but they are blown up by Champa. At headquarters on Planet Frieza 17, Tagoma informs Sorbet that Guarana's ship has been blown up by an unidentified force, which shocks him and Shisami. Sorbet declares that there only choice from not suffering is to revive Frieza. Somewhere in space, Vados warns Champa of Beerus noticing his doings which Champa replies that they are heading and the next time him and Beerus meet, he will give him a souvenir.

Super Saiyan God
Goku (Super Saiyan God) vs. Beerus
Differences from anime
The battle between Goku and Beerus is much shorter, Goku does not revert to his Super Saiyan and Base state during the battle instead reverting to his Base state following the battle.
Supreme Kai and Kibito are shown to have diffused something that was not seen in the anime or known about until the Universe 6 saga.
Champa is shown to destroy one of the Galactic Frieza Armies spaceships, something he doesn't do in the anime.
Beerus and Champa is the fifth chapter of the Dragon Ball Super manga.
Sometime has passed since the battle with Golden Frieza, Goku and Vegeta continue training under Whis on Beerus' planet. Goku and Vegeta are sparring with each other. Vegeta begins to start losing to Goku because of his use of the Instant Transmission. Vegeta starts to get agitated, going with his flaw as a fighter and Whis picks up on this. Before Goku could knock down Vegeta, he turns Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan and uses a ki blast against him. Goku turns Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan too and him and Vegeta ramble to each using "Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan" repeatedly, causing Goku to bite his tongue. Goku complains about the name Vegeta gave the transformation and Whis suggests the name "Super Saiyan Blue". Whis reminds them that their fight was a "transformation restricted" one so he punishes them for it, giving them heavy-weighted suits.
Champa and Vados show up and Champa orders Whis to get Beerus, who is at the time asleep. As Whis takes off, Goku asks Champa a negative comment about his appearance, so Vados tells him that he is Beerus' twin brother and is the God of Destruction of Universe 6. Goku and Vegeta are shocked, so Goku asks which between the two are stronger. Vados makes a comment of their physiques giving away the answer, making Champa mad at her. She also tells them that she is Whis' sister and claims to be a little stronger than he is. Whis returns with Beerus and objects her claim. Vados then suggests they should fight to find out who is stronger.
Beerus and Champa have a ritual of having a food show-off when seeing each other. Beerus gives Champa Cup Ramen and Champa gives Beerus a boiled egg from a newly discovered bird. They both try each other's dishes. After Champa has tried the noodles, he asks of the origin of the food and Beerus responds with Earth. Champa immediately tells Vados to look for an Earth in their universe. Vegeta is confused and is told by Whis that there are twelve universes, and that universes whose numbers add up to the number "13" are twin universes. Vados finds their Earth and states that the humans are non-existent because of a "nonsense war". Champa gets mad that his universe isn't able of having delicate foods as the Earth of Universe 7, so he challenges Beerus to a face-off of their universes using five of their best warriors in one-on-one matches. Goku hearing this makes him even more excited.
Super Saiyan Blue
Goku (Base/Super Saiyan Blue) vs. Vegeta (Base/Super Saiyan Blue)
Differences from anime
The scene where Goku, Vegeta and Whis come up with the new name of Super Saiyan Blue was omitted in the anime aswell as Goku and Vegeta fighting.
The exchanging and eating of the food presented by Beerus and Champa happened outside whereas in the anime it had within Beerus' palace.
The origin of the name Super Saiyan Blue began with this chapter when the characters came up for a shorter name to replace Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan.
"The Winning Universe is Decided!" is the 13th chapter of the Dragon Ball Super manga.
Goku is fighting against Hit, who is using his Time-Skip technique to land blows on him. However, Goku is able to predict where Hit is going to appear, as Hit is barely able to dodge a blow from him. Goku says he finally caught Hit, as Hit says that was a fluke. Goku then says that he'll just do it again. Goku attacks, as Hit disappears, but Goku lands another blow on Hit, which surprises him, along with Champa and Vados. Hit asks how Goku does that, and Goku says that he just predicts where Hit will be in 0.1 seconds. Goku then says that Hit keeps his hands in his pockets to keep his coat down, in order to prevent his opponents from reading his movements with his legs. Piccolo says that Goku really can't help babbling on about his plans, as Goku transforms into a Super Saiyan. Hit denounces Goku for underestimating him, as Goku did not immediately transform into his "blue-haired form", and takes his hands out of his pockets. The two begin to fight a battle with immense speed, as Master Roshi says he cannot even follow them. Supreme Kai is surprised that Goku is able to constantly predict Hit's attacks. Champa is frustrated, as Vados calms him down, saying that while Hit's Time-Skip barely takes any stamina, Goku's constant predictions and fighting at high speeds will cause him to eventually deplete his own stamina. Beerus is frustrated that while Goku has the advantage in power, Hit is resorting to using "cheap tricks". Goku, realizing he is in trouble, further powers up, revealing the standard Super Saiyan God form, which shocks everyone, including the gods. Vegeta is flustered that even this late in the fight, Goku is still saving another transformation. Goten and Trunks discuss the "Super Saiyan Red" (dubbed by Goten) form being called "God".
Goku uses Super Saiyan God to fight Hit
Goku and Hit proceed to fight again, as Goku charges and Hit uses Time-Skip, however Goku clearly sees him and knocks him back. A surprised Hit wonders if he was only able to stop Goku for less than 0.1 seconds. Goku knocks him back again, and Hit is shocked to see that the Time-Skip is being countered so easily. Whis explains to Beerus that not only as Goku closed the power gap between him and Hit, but has grown stronger than him by a wide margin. When Vegeta transformed into a Super Saiyan Blue against Hit, he was not able to exert more than 1/10th of his usual strength, as he had already transformed and fought a few times prior, as the transformation consumes an immense amount of stamina. They deduce that Goku's current Super Saiyan God form is stronger than Vegeta's Super Saiyan Blue form when it was used, also being stronger than Hit. Hit, overhearing their conversation, is surprised. Goku then fires a Ki Blast, which Hit is unable to stop. Hit, realizing Goku is on a completely different level, assumes a stance and powers up. Everyone is surprised by this, and Whis and Vados explain that due to Hit's Time-Skip ability, he had no need to power up to his full power in any of his fights. Hit explains to Goku that due to not powering up in a long time, his body would be unable to handle it for a long period, saying that he can only use his Time-Skip technique one time, however that one time is all he will need.
While Goku is charging towards Hit, Hit prepares to stop him, but is surprised to see Goku transform into a Super Saiyan Blue and completely break his Time-Skip, knocking him away. Goku then proceeds to fire a Kamehameha, which Vados is surprised to see plow right through the barrier she created. Champa wonders where Hit is, and Goku sees that Hit barely dodged the attack. Huge winds are created due to the barrier being broken, and Champa quickly orders Vados to fix it. Hit compliments Goku's strength, and Goku explains that Hit is much stronger than this because Hit is an assassin and he is forced to hold himself back to avoid killing his opponent, which is against the rules. Goku offers to fight Hit again one day when there are no rules, and voluntarily jumps out of the ring, which surprises everyone. Hit is announced as the winner, and Beerus angrily yells at Goku. Goku reminds him that they still have Monaka, which causes Beerus to grow even more angry.
The tournament presenter announces the last match, Monaka vs. Hit, as Goku walks past Vegeta and Piccolo, with Vegeta asking what Goku is thinking. Goku asks Vegeta why he did not save his Super Saiyan Blue form, as he could have beaten Hit if he did, and asked why he used it against Cabba, who Vegeta could have beaten as a regular Super Saiyan. Vegeta answers saying that there was no way he could let Kyabe go, as a Saiyan, without whipping his spirit into shape first. Monaka, incredibly flustered and afraid, walks into the ring and confronts Hit. As the match begins, Beerus complains to himself on how screwed he is, and Hit notices him. A frightened Monaka lands a weak punch on Hit, who does not budge, but realizes that Monaka was actually an amateur, and launches himself out of the ring, surprising everyone. Champa and Beerus are the most surprised as Monaka and the Universe 7 team are declared the winners, while Goku is impressed by Monaka's strength. Hit thinks to himself that he and Goku are now even. Champa is angry at Hit for throwing the match, and Beerus yells at him to pay attention, revealing the appearance of the Omni-King.
Vegeta asks Whis who he is, and is shocked to hear that he rules over all 12 universes. The gods and the Kais greet the Omni-King, who was flustered to hear they put this event together themselves, but is impressed enough to announce that it should happen again, this time with all 12 universes in the mix. Goku says he is excited, and Beerus is shocked to see Goku addressing the Omni-King so casually. Beerus and Champa are greatly worried that Goku held his hand out to the Omni-King, but the Omni-King shakes Goku's hand, promising that the event will happen. The Omni-King then leaves. With that, the Super Dragon Balls are summoned, the wish with Super Shenron is granted, and the others return to Earth.

Goku (Base/Super Saiyan/Super Saiyan God/Super Saiyan Blue) vs. Hit
Monaka vs. Hit
Differences from anime
In the manga, Goku uses his Super Saiyan form, then his Super Saiyan God form, followed by his Super Saiyan Blue form. In the anime, Goku jumps straight to his Super Saiyan Blue form.
The manga reveals Goku's ability to use the standard Super Saiyan God form without absorbing energy from others.
The Super Saiyan Blue: Kaio-ken technique is anime-only.
Hit never improves himself in the manga. Instead, he uses his Full Power (although he claims it only lasts for a minute), but his Time-Skip never improves to be longer than 0.1 seconds.
In the manga, the Time-Skip technique is revealed to be less effective on those with higher power levels than Hit.
In the manga, Hit's power is about equal to Super Saiyan Goku. Once Goku utilizes his Super Saiyan God and then Super Saiyan Blue forms, Hit's Time-Skip lasts a shorter duration (and then doesn't work at all) against him due to his power surpassing Hit's.
In the manga, Whis explains why Vegeta could not compete against Hit: his power output has fallen to less than 10% due to the subsequent uses of the Super Saiyan Blue form as its use consumes a lot of stamina.
The "Future" Trunks Saga , also called the Rebellious Zamasu Saga or Goku Black Saga,is the fourth saga of the Dragon Ball Super anime and third saga of the Dragon Ball Super manga. It involves the return of Future Trunks and a battle surpassing time and space with Goku Black and Future Zamasu, involving the Gods of Destruction, Supreme Kais, and even Zen-Oh.
In the alternate timeline, Future Trunks is running and hiding from a mysterious being, causing destruction all over with its ki blasts. He enters a building and meets with his mother, Future Bulma, who is working on an experiment, and is relieved that Future Trunks is well. Future Bulma is working on the Time Machine, and has prepared enough fuel for a one-way trip to the past, betting that there will be another way a round-trip can be made. Future Trunks offers to take the fuel back to Capsule Corporation, and tells Future Bulma to rest, but Future Bulma insists on coming with him, in case "that guy" attacks. As they prepare to leave, an explosion is made close to them, which destroys Future Bulma's equipment. Future Bulma sees something coming, and gives Future Trunks the fuel and tells him to go, before a mysterious being grabs Future Bulma. Future Bulma tells Trunks to hurry, when the mysterious being charges a Ki Blast and blows up the building, which kills Future Bulma. Future Trunks, promising to save this world, flees while more explosions are made.
Back in the present timeline, at Goku's house, Goku shows his newly-grown vegetable farm to Chi-Chi and Goten. Piccolo asks Goku why he called him, and Goku wants to train by collecting the entire harvest. Goku tells Piccolo that work can also be training, as Master Roshi trained him and Krillin as kids by making them work. Goten wants to join too, but Chi-Chi says he must study. While Goku and Piccolo are having an intense competition harvesting, Krillin arrives and wonders why Goku is okay with doing this while Vegeta is off training at Beerus' planet. Overhearing this, Goku begins sensing for Vegeta's ki. On Beerus' planet, Vegeta is training with Whis. When Vegeta transforms into a Super Saiyan Blue, Goku locks onto his ki, and teleports. Everyone is surprised but Krillin, who is forced by Chi-Chi to harvest in Goku's place. As Vegeta charges, Goku teleports in front of him, and bumps into him. Goku calls Vegeta sneaky, while Vegeta calls Goku stupid. Beerus asks if Goku brought him a gift, and Goku gives him the ball of lettuce he has been holding. Beerus enjoys the lettuce, but tells Goku that it is a gift too small for a God.
In the alternate timeline, Future Trunks knocks on a door, and meets up with Future Mai. Future Trunks tells Future Mai that Future Bulma died in order for Future Trunks to escape, as Goku Black is now able to sense his ki. Future Trunks shows Future Mai the fuel, telling her that they can now return to the past.
Back on Beerus' planet, Goku, Vegeta, Beerus and Whis are eating cups of ramen as they discuss the Omni-King. Beerus says Zen-Oh doesn't fight, but he is indeed the strongest being and no one is above him. Whis says that Zen-Oh can destroy anything in an instant, as there were previously 18 universes and 6 were destroyed due to him being in a spoiled mood.
In the alternate timeline, Future Trunks and Future Mai are eating and resting, discussing about going back 17 years in the past, where Future Trunks' friends are, as he reminisces the events. They then make their way to Capsule Corporation, wary about their surroundings. A giant vortex is in the sky, and Future Trunks tells Future Mai to go on ahead as he draws his sword. Future Trunks engages in battle, but is defeated. Future Mai gives Future Trunks the fuel and she offers to be the decoy, as Future Trunks needs to survive. Future Mai is hit with a Ki Blast, seemingly killing her. An angered Future Trunks then glares at the enemy, Black, who tells Future Trunks that today is the day he will take his final breath.
Future Trunks is angry and distraught over the death of Future Mai, and wonders if he should run. Future Trunks notices the Capsule Corporation building is intact, realizing that Black does not know about the time machine. Black wonders why Future Trunks insists on fighting when he knows he cannot win. Frustrated, Future Trunks transforms into a Super Saiyan and attacks Black, successfully landing a few blows, but he is quickly beaten back. As Black prepares to finish the fight, Future Trunks finds his sword next to him and throws it to Black, who is distracted and his Ki Blast is destroyed. Future Trunks then fires a Masenko at Black, who blocks it, causing a huge smoke cloud. When the smoke is dispersed, Future Trunks is gone, as he had snuck into the Capsule Corp building. Future Trunks inserts the fuel into the time machine, climbing into it and starting it up. Black then begins to sense for Future Trunks' ki, noticing him in the time machine in the air. Black fires a Dark Kamehameha towards Future Trunks, but the time machine disappears right in the nick of time. Black is then surprised to find out that Future Trunks' ki has completely disappeared. As Future Trunks is traveling back in time, he recalls Future Bulma's words, and vows that this one-way trip will not go to waste.
Back in the present time, Trunks, Pilaf, Mai, and Shu are being taught mathematics by an instructor. Pilaf (in a complicated way, and according to the instructor, a way an old man would explain it) explains a math equation when Trunks did not understand it. The students are dismissed for lunch, and Trunks runs with Mai, holding her hand. Outside the Capsule Corp building, while he is eating lunch, Trunks senses a disturbance, and notices the time machine appearing. Trunks flies towards it, and looks inside, seeing Future Trunks unconscious, having succumbed to his fatigue. The instructor points out that the time machine is some Capsule Corporation craft, and Trunks is confused. Shu is instructed to go get Bulma, who races to the time machine, and realizes it is Future Trunks due to the word "HOPE!!" written on the side. Bulma lays an unconscious Future Trunks in a bed, and prepares to call for Vegeta. After she leaves, Mai and Shu wonder why Vegeta needs to be called, but as they realize that Trunks and Future Trunks look completely similar, they wonder if Trunks has a long-lost brother, which shocks Trunks.
In another room, Bulma is frantically looking for an item, revealed to be a communicator given to her by Whis. On Beerus' planet, Whis, Beerus, Vegeta and Goku are discussing the ramen they just ate, as Whis receives the call from Bulma. Bulma shows Vegeta and Goku the severely injured Future Trunks, and they are shocked. Trunks is even more surprised that the young man is also being called "Trunks". As Pilaf and the gang are wondering if Bulma and Vegeta are involved in a scandal, Bulma yells at them to be quiet. Bulma asks Goku if he has any Senzu Beans, and Goku says he does not. Vegeta tells him to teleport to Korin Tower to get some, but Goku says he cannot sense Korin's ki as it is too far away. Vegeta says they will first teleport back to Earth, and asks if the "younger" Trunks is there. Bulma instructs Trunks to power up so Goku can lock onto his ki, and the young Saiyan does so, transforming into a Super Saiyan. Beerus and Whis, interested, also tag along. After they arrive, Vegeta immediately tells Goku to go get some Senzu Beans. The instructor, surprised at all of these events, fearfully goes home, claiming she "has a headache". In the alternate timeline, Black vows to find Future Trunks, and powers up, coating a dark-colored aura.
At Korin Tower, Korin and Yajirobe play limbo, as Goku arrives and grabs the pot full of Senzu Beans. Yajirobe asks Goku if he wants to play, but Goku says he is in a hurry, and teleports back. Bulma feeds Future Trunks a Senzu Bean, and he eventually opens his eyes. As he sees Goku and hears his voice, he begins to have flashbacks of Black, and the deaths of Future Bulma and Future Mai. Suddenly, an angry Future Trunks jumps out of bed and attacks Goku, surprising everyone. Goku is also surprised and confused as he blocks the attack.
Future Trunks, angry, has attacked Goku, thinking he is Black. However, a slap on the head from Bulma caused him to regain his composure. Future Trunks is surprised to see Goku alive, as he had died in the Cell Games and was revived long after Future Trunks returned to his alternate timeline. Future Trunks apologized to Goku for attacking him. Bulma asks Future Trunks what is going on, and Future Trunks kneels in front of Bulma, relieved he made it to the past successfully, then greets Vegeta. Beerus approaches the younger Trunks, confirming his name is also Trunks, and realizing that someone has been messing with time. Pilaf and the gang deduce that there is some kind of scandal going on, as Bulma silences them, saying that she and Vegeta are the parents of both of them as they are one in the same. Future Trunks and Trunks then exchange greetings. Future Trunks is surprised to see Mai, then picks up his sword. Bulma proudly explains the time machine is one of her inventions, while Future Trunks tells Trunks that they actually first met when Trunks was a baby. Whis is surprised that mortals are capable of creating time machines, but says that traveling through time is a serious crime.
In the alternate timeline, Goku Black is searching for Future Trunks' ki, but is frustrated that he completely disappeared, creating more havoc on the Earth. The ring of time he is wearing starts to react. In the present timeline, Whis explains the reason why time travel is prohibited, even among the gods. Future Trunks is surprised to learn that Beerus and Whis are gods. Beerus comments that destroying them might be the way to go, but Bulma explains to him that the person who created the time machine was not her, but another her. Future Trunks begs Whis, thinking he is a god, however he points to Beerus. Future Trunks learns that Beerus is the God of Destruction, but says that Whis looks more like a god, which frustrates Beerus. Goku asks for Beerus to let this slide, and Beerus says he will if he is fed something that he has never eaten before. Bulma gives Beerus and Whis some fish sausage, and they agree to let it slide. Bulma then gives some to the rest of the gang.
Krillin and Piccolo, after harvesting all of the lettuce, are resting and reminiscing about Krillin's time training with Master Roshi. Chi-Chi and Goten appear, telling Krillin and Piccolo that Future Trunks' time machine has appeared. Krillin and Piccolo wonder if something bad happened in the future again, and they fly to Capsule Corporation. Goten tries to follow them, but Chi-Chi stops him, telling him he has to study.
At Capsule Corp, Bulma is analyzing the time machine, as Pilaf plans to use the time machine to pick up some money he dropped a long time ago. Bulma slaps his hand away from the controls, then tells him that that the time machine has no fuel, realizing that even Future Trunks cannot return to his own time. Bulma is flustered by how her future counterpart thinks, as she finds a notebook in the time machine. Vegeta and Goku ask if Majin Buu appeared in the future. Future Trunks explains that Future Dabura and Future Babidi did appear, but with instructions from Future Supreme Kai, he was able to kill both of them, preventing Majin Buu's resurrection. He then explains his reason behind suddenly attacking Goku, as he believed he failed to travel through time and thought Goku was Goku Black, who introduced himself as Goku. Future Trunks calls him Goku Black because he wears black clothes. Vegeta and Goku are shocked at this. The day Goku Black appeared, he said he would "annihilate the Earthlings for the sake of justice", then proceeding to cause worldwide destruction, having already destroyed a number of planets and their inhabitants. Bulma is surprised to learn her future counterpart was killed, and Vegeta berates Trunks, as a proud Saiyan, turning his back on Goku Black and running to the past. Bulma then interrupts him, saying there is a message in the notebook written by Future Bulma, explaining the theories and concepts behind the time machine. Bulma, Vegeta and Goku resolve to go to the future and defeat Goku Black, which Future Trunks is happy about.
Goku asks Future Trunks to spar with him, wanting to know where he stands against Goku Black. They both proceed to transform to Super Saiyan 2. Their powerful energy causes shockwaves around the surrounding areas, including a huge wind which flusters the humans in West City. Bulma uses her technology to create a large, invisible force field around Future Trunks and Goku, saying they can go all-out without causing any damage to anything. Future Trunks attacks Goku, who says Future Trunks is amazingly strong, however Future Trunks replies that he is nowhere near as strong as Goku Black, who powered up every time they fought. Goku says he will also do that, and Future Trunks is surprised to see Goku transform into Super Saiyan 3. Future Trunks says he will use his max power, and attacks Goku with his sword, causing the force field to be destroyed. Future Trunks is shocked to see Goku block his sword with his fingers, despite him using his full power. Goku knocks Future Trunks back, and knocks him down to the ground, defeating him. Goku is surprised to know that Future Trunks has gotten that much stronger all by himself, even though Goku Black is said to be stronger than him. Goku is then excited about how strong Goku Black is. Krillin and Piccolo arrive and greet Future Trunks, until a thunderstorm suddenly appears. A portal is opened, and Goku Black arrives, which surprises Future Trunks. Goku and Goku Black officially meet.
Goku Black, who followed Future Trunks to the past and emerged in front of the Z Fighters, realized Future Trunks disappeared because he traveled through time. Whis tells Beerus to look at Goku Black's right hand, and Beerus notices the Time Ring. Goku Black looks around and recognizes Vegeta and Beerus as the God of Destruction. Future Trunks, demanding how Goku Black got here, began to assault him, but Vegeta stops him, saying he cannot beat him. Goku immediately flies up and confronts Goku Black, excited to fight him. Goku Black accepts, wishing to fight Goku "in this body". Goku Black then dismisses Goku for asking what that means, firing a Ki Blast at Goku, who blocks it, but is pushed back to a deserted rocky area. Piccolo asks who he is, and Bulma says that he is her enemy. Piccolo, along with Future Trunks, Vegeta and Krillin all fly away to watch the fight. Beerus says that a Goku vs. Goku bout seems rather interesting.
At the rocky area, Goku asks Goku Black if that was all of his strength, then transforms into Super Saiyan 2. The two starts fighting while Whis broadcasts the fight with his staff for those who didn't fly from Capsule Corporation to watch. Goku Black emerges from Goku's attack unharmed, and powers up, which causes the portal he came through to convulse. As the two fight again, Krillin points out that Goku Black's ki keeps increasing. Future Trunks wonders why Goku is not using the power he used to defeat him, and Vegeta informs him that Goku has a bad habit of not fighting seriously at the beginning. Goku tells Goku Black he is waiting for his full power, and Goku Black tells him there is no point to rush things and wants to have more fun. Beerus notes that this is not Goku vs. Goku, as Goku Black's ki feels different. Goku says he will force him to use his full power, and starts to fight again, but is knocked back. When the portal keeps convulsing, Goku Black is distracted by some feeling, and Goku kicks him all the way back to Capsule Corporation. Goku Black, saying that this pain will make him even stronger, power ups even further and knocks Goku away. The force from the attack knocks over the time machine, which Goku Black then recognizes.
Goku immediately attacks back, and the two exchange punches, but Goku Black starts to feel the same pain again as the time portal starts to pull him back. Goku powers down and asks what is going on, and Goku Black wonders if the time distortion is returning to normal. Before Goku Black is pulled back into the portal and disappears, he destroys the time machine. Whis explains that Goku Black's Time Ring responded to the time distortion created by Future Trunks, and brought him to the past, however his time was short-lived and Goku Black was forced back to the alternate timeline when the distortion fixed itself. Collapsing, Goku Black is then overjoyed to "embed" Goku's fighting style into himself, and laughs once he strands Future Trunks in the past due to destroying his time machine.
Back in the past, Future Trunks is devastated over his destroyed time machine, realizing Goku Black returned to the alternate timeline and he will annihilate all of humanity with no one able to stop him. Goku asks Future Trunks how strong Goku Black was compared to in the alternate timeline, and Future Trunks replies that he was a little stronger. Vegeta assures Future Trunks that not only Goku's, but Vegeta's true power is far greater than what was shown. However, Goku says the same for Goku Black, realizing that his ki kept growing rapidly during the fight. Pilaf and the gang, posing as firemen, pour water on the fire on the time machine to put it out. Trunks asks Bulma if she can fix the time machine, and Bulma tells him it is impossible for her to from scratch, even with the notes left from Future Bulma. However, Bulma gets an idea, and rushes to find something in her office. Beerus comments that with a destroyed time machine, humans can no longer manipulate time so easily. Whis tells the others about the Time Ring Goku Black was wearing, revealing that only a Supreme Kai is allowed to have those.
Piccolo asks if Goku Black is a Supreme Kai, but Beerus says a Supreme Kai would not have Goku's exact appearance. Future Trunks asks Whis to lend him a Time Ring to return to the future, but Beerus reiterates that only a Supreme Kai possesses one. Whis notes that with a Time Ring, one can travel to the future temporarily and return to the past, but traveling to the past should have been impossible. Krillin recalls Whis rewinding time to correct Frieza's destruction of the Earth, but Whis reminds him that he can only rewind time, and only by 3 minutes. Future Trunks looks at his charred time machine, disappointed that he could not follow through with Future Bulma's promise. Vegeta approaches him, and while looking forward, tells him not to give up.
Bulma, looking exhausted and ravaged, tells the others that hope is not yet lost, and reveals that she was looking for a capsule. She throws it, and everyone is surprised to see Future Trunks' other time machine, the one used by Cell to travel to the past. In the alternate timeline, Future Mai is revealed to be alive, and was just knocked unconscious.
Goku, Bulma, and the gang prepare to head to the future in the other time machine. As they do Trunks tells them about how he met Mai in the future and his battles against Goku Black.
Bulma is currently working on repairing the time machine. Mai and Shu are handing her things she call for, working hard for Future Trunks' sake. Bulma asks Mai to get her something from Laboratory 2, and Trunks offers to lead her there. Dr. Briefs is repairing something else while Pilaf is watching. Vegeta is violently training in the Gravity Room, vowing to never forgive Goku Black for killing his wife. Goku and Beerus loudly exclaim how hungry they are while Whis is observing a recording of Goku's earlier fight with Goku Black. Future Trunks is laying in bed when he wakes up after having a nightmare about Goku Black killing Future Mai. He gets up and asks Bulma how the time machine repairs are going, and she answers that she's making progress.
Bulma says she figured out how to compose the time machine's energy source, saying that it will take a full day to save up enough to fill the tank. Future Trunks is surprised, as he tells Bulma that in the alternate timeline it took nearly a year to fill up half the tank. Future Trunks offers his help but Bulma says she's fine as the "freeloaders" are helping. Bulma tells Future Trunks to change out of his dirty clothes. Outside, Krillin and Piccolo are doing yard work as Future Trunks approaches them and asks how Gohan is doing. Piccolo shoots down the idea of Gohan going to the future, as he has become a scholar and distanced himself from fighting. Future Trunks tells them that Gohan was his teacher. He recalls Future Gohan knocking him out and after he woke up, finding Future Gohan's dead body and attaining his Super Saiyan form. Krillin suggests that Future Trunks go meet Gohan, but Piccolo says he is currently at a conference. They hand Future Trunks a map to Gohan's area of work, and he waits there as Gohan walks past him and recognizes him. Future Trunks is surprised to see Gohan, noting he cannot sense the brimming power from him. They then eat a couple of ice cream cones as Gohan invites Future Trunks back to his house.
Gohan introduces Future Trunks to Videl and Mr. Satan. Future Trunks knows who Mr. Satan is due to his appearance in the Cell Games, but Mr. Satan interrupts him, saying he must be famous in the future. Gohan introduces Future Trunks to Pan, who sprays her bottle at him playfully. Videl apologizes while Pan does the same to Mr. Satan and Gohan. Pan then levitates in the air, and Future Trunks is surprised but he realizes that she is Gohan's daughter. Gohan calls for Pan to come down as he dons his Great Saiyaman costume. Gohan catches Pan as he and Videl invite Future Trunks to stay for dinner. Videl is cooking, Gohan is finishing his conference report, and Mr. Satan shows Future Trunks recordings of his victory rallies. Future Trunks asks himself what he is doing as the future is in danger. Mr. Satan is called by Videl so he asks Future Trunks to watch Pan, who playfully hits him and pulls his hair.
Gohan and Future Trunks are outside with Pan as Gohan says he does need to be stricter with her but gets soft when he looks at her face. Future Trunks watches Gohan play with Pan and grows warm inside for seeing Gohan so happy. Videl calls Gohan and Future Trunks for dinner. Future Trunks thinks to himself how life would have been if Goku Black never showed up. As Future Trunks eats dinner and says goodbye to Gohan and the others, he is inspired and finds out what he is fighting for. Later that night, Bulma and the others are eating dinner and Future Trunks shows up in his new outfit. He asks where Goku is, and Krillin says that he and the Gods went to Universe 10, having analyzed Goku Black's peculiar ki. Somewhere in Universe 10, a green-skinned man appears, who happens to wear clothes quite similar to Black.
Visiting Universe 10
Goku, Beerus, and Whis head off to the Sacred World of the Kais of Universe 10. Whis has an idea that he knows Black's true identity and reveals that Zamasu is Kai who is a fighting genius and the apprentice to the Supreme Kai of Universe 10. Goku becomes excited at challenging him while irritating Beerus so much that he threatens to push him off. Meanwhile, when pouring tea for Gowasu, Zamasu strikes up a conversation with him about humans. He says that he wants to destroy them, but Gowasu says that isn't his decision and that Kais are not allowed to interfere with creation. Whis, Beerus, and Goku arrive at the Sacred World of the Kais and Zamasu is surprised at Goku for being on the Sacred World. Whis notes this is the first time he has ever met Goku. Zamasu clearly doesn't want him there and almost attacks Goku, but Gowasu stops him from doing it and pardons him.
Once that is done, Whis gets Gowasu up to speed about Black and tells him that he was no kai, but somehow possesses a time ring. Zamasu didn't know about time rings yet. Beerus then tells Gowasu that Black looks a lot like Goku, surprising him at this. Beerus asks where he keeps the time rings, and Gowasu says that there are in the temple. Beerus wanted confirmation so Gowasu made Zamasu lead Beerus, Whis, and Goku to the temple, where time rings were kept. Goku continues to beg Zamasu to fight him, but Zamasu declines. However, to Zamasu's dismay, Gowasu insists Zamasu fight him, telling him it's a part of his training. Gowasu says Zamasu should hold back, but Beerus tells him it will cost him his life if he does so. The battle starts off with Goku going Super Saiyan 2 against Zamasu. Both Gowasu and Zamasu are both surprised when they see this and Whis tells Gowasu that it is Super Saiyan. Zamasu was wondering how humans had that power. Goku tells him that he hasn't fought a god since Beerus and Zamasu is very surprised at this development. Once the battle begins, Goku throws a punch at Zamasu, who catches it and throws it to the side. Zamasu throws a chop to the neck, but Goku rebounds an energy ball at his hand. Then Goku, Beerus, and Whis notices the similarities between Zamasu Black's ki. Goku then begins pushing Zamasu back, who questions how could a human be this strong. Goku delivers a swift punch to end the match and compliments Zamasu for how strong he was. Zamasu was about to attack Goku but Gowasu stopped him. Beerus yawns and gets ready to go home since he saw the rings.
On the way home, Whis says Zamasu was suppressing his cold heart and it showed enough evidence to prove Zamasu was Black. Beerus says he should have destroyed him, but Goku says he wasn't such a bad guy, causing Beerus to say that Goku is too trusting. While they were walking back to the celestial tree, Gowasu asks Zamasu if he has cleared the distrust of mortals in his heart, but Zamasu says that he is ashamed at his inadequacy. While Zamasu is pouring tea for Gowasu, he says he will never forget Son Goku.
Bulma and her team put the finishing touches to the rebuilt Time Machine. Meanwhile, Vegeta wants to test Future Trunks' power to see how strong his son had become. Future Trunks proves to be no match for Vegeta at his full power. Future Trunks is outmatched in every way. However, Future Trunks finds this fact reassuring. Knowing how powerful Vegeta and Goku have become, he is certain that Goku Black will not be much of a threat. Vegeta is disappointed and angry with Future Trunks. Vegeta believes that Saiyans should continually strive to grow stronger and not only when enemies present themselves. On Beerus' planet, Beerus and Whis are about to eat dinner. Suddenly, Zenō contacts them and tells them that he wishes to meet Goku, which shocks Beerus and Whis.
On Beerus' planet, a greatly worried Beerus is sitting on a rock as Goku teleports in front of him, asking what did he want him for. Suddenly grabbing and pinching Goku's cheek, Beerus tells him that Zen-Oh wants to see him. Goku wonders if it is about the universal tournament, but reminds Beerus and Whis that he is low on time as the Time Machine is about to be fixed soon. Beerus shoots him down, telling him that if Zen-Oh says immediately, Goku must go see him immediately. Whis tells him that the trip to Zen-Oh's palace will take two days, and Goku is flustered that it would take that long. Whis then suggests that they go meet with the Supreme Kai, as he can take them to Zen-Oh's palace in an instant. Beerus orders Whis to accompany Goku, as he himself refuses to go. Beerus then grabs Goku's head and reminds him that the fate of the universe rests on Goku's behavior towards Zen-Oh. Goku assures Beerus that nothing will go wrong and he will get it over with quickly.
Meanwhile, at Capsule Corporation, Bulma and Dr. Briefs are repairing the time machine as Bulma happily announces that repairs are complete and she can begin charging the machine. Mai gleefully races to go inform Future Trunks, but Bulma stops her, saying that he is currently resting after intense training with Vegeta. Back on Beerus' planet, Beerus asks if Goku really intends to meet Zen-Oh with his current Gi, and tells Goku to wear something more formal, but Goku calls it annoying. Whis says he will apologize and say they were in a hurry. Beerus also tells Goku to keep the entire time machine and Goku Black situation a secret from Zen-Oh, knowing that he is bound to get angry if he hears about it. Beerus reminds Whis to watch over Supreme Kai, and Goku is surprised that Beerus is worrying about someone other than himself. Whis tells Goku that the Supreme Kai and God of Destruction are a set, so if one dies, the other will also die. Beerus berates Whis for telling Goku something so important, and Goku thinks about beating the Supreme Kai so Beerus would also be beaten, but he says that wouldn't be very fun. Goku then teleports with Whis to the Sacred World of the Kais.
In Universe 10, Zamasu and Gowasu are spectating the actions of the Babari-seijin, until one of them suddenly shows up behind them and attacks. Zamasu easily blocks the attack and sends the beast flying. Ignoring Gowasu's protests, Zamasu kills the beast by bisecting it with an Energy Blade. Back at the Sacred World of the Kais, Gowasu berates Zamasu for his actions.
Back in Universe 7, Supreme Kai is flustered upon hearing Goku and Whis' request. Kibito and Elder Kai wonder about this, also requesting Goku to watch his attitude. Supreme Kai then uses a technique to instantly teleport himself, Goku and Whis to Zen-Oh's palace, where the Great Priest is awaiting their arrival. After exchanging greetings, the Great Priest leads the group to Zen-Oh. As they are walking, Goku notes that the Great Priest feels strong, and Whis tells him that he has one of the five highest power levels in all the universes, but also requests that Goku does not do something rude as in ask to fight him. Goku is surprised to hear that even Whis cannot stand up to him. The group then teleports directly in front of Zen-Oh in his main room, and Zen-Oh happily greets Goku as the others bow to Zen-Oh. Goku asks what Zen-Oh wanted from him, and Zen-Oh says that he wanted a friend. Surprised at Goku's nonchalant reaction, Supreme Kai speaks for him and says that Goku is thrilled to be Zen-Oh's friend, but Zen-Oh tells him to be quiet. Goku then says that he will refer to Zen-Oh as "All-chan" as he says that Zen-Oh can refer to him as just Goku. Zen-Oh asks what Goku wanted to play, but Goku tells him that he is busy and he can play once he is finished with his business. Angry at Goku's rudeness, Zen-Oh's attendants prepared to attack, but Zen-Oh tells them to be quiet or he will wipe them out, prompting them to apologize. Goku promises Zen-Oh to visit him after, even bringing someone with him that would make an even better friend, and suggests Zen-Oh should visit Earth one day. In response, Zen-Oh gives Goku a button, telling him that when he presses it, Zen-Oh will instantly teleport to him. They both say goodbye as Goku, Whis and Supreme Kai teleport back to Universe 7. Supreme Kai asks Goku who he was referring to as a friend, and Goku reveals he didn't have anyone in mind, and if he didn't say so, Zen-Oh probably wouldn't have let him go.
Goku and Whis teleport back to Beerus' planet, and Beerus is flustered over Goku's casual nickname for Zen-Oh. In Universe 10, Zamasu and Gowasu have a conversation over watching over humans and the properties of good and evil, as Gowasu notices Zamasu's pot of tea brewing due to Zamasu's unpleasant words. Gowasu then tells Zamasu to brew a new pot of tea. Back on Earth, Bulma reveals the newly repaired time machine. Vegeta, Goku and Future Trunks then climb into the time machine and prepare to travel to the future. As they arrive, Goku is surprised to see the alternate timeline look so bleak and destroyed. Future Trunks is surprised to see that Future Mai's body is not where she collapsed.
Confrontation in the Future
Goku, Vegeta and Future Trunks arrive in the alternate timeline after the Time Machine has been repaired. Shortly after arriving, Goku is suddenly attacked by members of Earth's Resistance. Future Trunks uses his sword to cut the missiles fired at Goku, prompting Vegeta to smirk proudly. The soldiers prepare to attack once more, but Future Trunks tells them to stop as Goku is not Goku Black. The soldiers recognize Future Trunks and exchange greetings with him, also asking him for his autograph. They apologize to Goku for mistaking him for Goku Black, and also slyly comment on Vegeta's mean face. As Future Trunks properly introduce Goku and Vegeta to the soldiers, the soldiers note that they must be warriors from the past sent to reinforce them against Goku Black. Future Trunks is surprised to hear this, as only he, Future Mai and Future Bulma know about the time machine. After looking at Future Mai's discarded hat, Future Trunks asks them who told them about this, and they reply that Future Mai did.
At an underground subway station, used as the Earth's resistance headquarters, Future Mai is tending to a soldier's injuries as Future Trunks reunites with her, relieved that she is alive. She tells the group about the resistance army's fight with Goku Black, how their past base was destroyed, and her inspiring the soldiers to survive as Future Trunks will return with reinforcements. Future Trunks asks Future Mai if she protected everyone, but as she reveals to him the remaining civilians, she tears up and says she couldn't protect everyone. Goku comforts her, telling her she did all she could and she has nothing to be ashamed of. A little girl appears in front of Future Mai, but as Goku says hi to her, she is frightened as she runs and hides behind her older brother. Future Trunks walks up to the two kids and makes them smile by making silly faces, also comforting the other civilians. Vegeta is proud of Future Trunks' treatment of the civilians, telling them to make some room as he throws a capsule, revealing a giant banquet of freshly made food made by Bulma, surprising everyone. Vegeta then gives Future Mai a couple more capsules, telling her they are full of other stuff they can use for their leisure, as Future Mai happily thanks him. Goku is surprised to see Future Yajirobe also eating, and Future Trunks wonders how he survived the battle with the Androids. Future Yajirobe said that Future Korin gave him the last Senzu Bean as he was close to dying. A soldier mocks Future Yajirobe by saying that he always hid during the battles to eat food, prompting the other soldiers to laugh at him.
Later, Future Mai thanks Goku and Vegeta for their help, but Goku reminds her that they still have to defeat Goku Black for there to be true peace. Vegeta announces that he will deal with Goku Black alone, but despite his protests, engages Goku in a game of rock-paper-scissors, much to Future Trunks and Future Mai's confusion. Vegeta wins the battle as Future Trunks asks Vegeta if he could join in the fight. Vegeta tells him that he has Future Mai and the world to look after, and if anything happens to him and Goku, he and Future Mai can return to the past. The three Saiyans then fly away, ready to do battle with Goku Black.
Goku Black is seen embracing the bleak world, saying that his utopia is almost here as he has to deal with the rest of the humans. Vegeta fires a ki blast in the air in order to inform Goku Black of their location, and Goku Black uses the light to confront them. Goku Black says that he thought he destroyed the time machine, as Vegeta immediately transforms into a Super Saiyan Blue to do battle. Future Trunks notes Goku Black's unsurprised expression, wondering if Goku Black has seen the form somewhere before. Goku Black applauds Vegeta, telling him that he must have trained well to ascend to such a level, teleporting in front of Vegeta without the Saiyan prince instantly reacting. Vegeta, surprised, realizes that Goku Black is far stronger than when he last fought with Goku. Vegeta then prepares to assault Goku Black, launching him far away with a barrage of hard punches. Goku describes how weird it feels seeing someone with his exact face getting punched, now knowing how Vegeta felt when Goku fought with Copy-Vegeta on Planet Potaufeu. Future Trunks asks Goku if Goku Black really is a god like Zamasu because he referred to Vegeta as a "mere human". Vegeta knocks Goku Black into the ground and further assaults him, but Goku Black, unaffected by the attacks, smirks at Vegeta, who suddenly senses something. Goku Black then kicks Vegeta hard, knocking him back to where Goku and Future Trunks are standing. Goku Black compliments Vegeta's ability, then prepares to show the Saiyans something as he powers up, revealing his new transformation, Super Saiyan Rosé.
Goku Black reveals that he has fully mastered Goku's powers and that he is now at a level above the Saiyans. Vegeta reminds Goku Black that he is his opponent and attacks him again, catching one of Goku Black's punches and preparing to punch him. Vegeta is then stabbed clean through the chest from an Energy Blade from Goku Black. As Vegeta is knocked out and falls to the ground, Goku Black calls him the "appetizer to the "opening course". Noting that the "appetizer" made him stronger, he will then take care of the "main dish" (referring to Goku) and rise to greater heights. Goku immediately transforms into Super Saiyan Blue and tells Future Trunks to look after Vegeta. As the two fight, Future Trunks wonders if they are evenly matched, but Vegeta weakly comments that they aren't as Goku is knocked to the ground in one hard blow. Goku Black begins charging a Black Kamehameha, but is interrupted by the arrival of Zamasu (albeit his future counterpart, much to the surprise of the three Saiyans. Future Zamasu reminds Goku Black that he will finish off Goku.
Future Zamasu, has appeared standing next to Goku Black, which leaves Goku, Future Trunks and Vegeta shocked. Goku realizes the two are allies, but Future Zamasu corrects him saying they are kindred spirits. Vegeta collapses from the hole in his chest from Goku Black's attack, and Future Trunks confirms he fell unconscious as he can still feel his ki. Future Trunks realizes that since the two are standing side-by-side, Goku Black and Zamasu are not actually the same person, and wonders just who Goku Black is. Future Zamasu exclaims that the just world he is longing for will soon come to fruition, and Goku powers up and engages Future Zamasu in battle, his punch blocked by Future Zamasu's Energy Blade. Goku thinks to himself that things feel different compared to when he fought Zamasu in the present timeline. The two fight an evenly-matched battle, but eventually Goku Black joins the battle, and together they drive Goku into a corner. Future Zamasu exclaims that Goku is his prey, but Goku Black says that his body has a strong desire to kill Goku that he cannot go against.
Future Zamasu and Goku Black begin to fight Goku again, but they are interrupted by Super Saiyan 2 Future Trunks, who blocks Goku Black's attack with his sword. After exclaiming he will beat both of them, Future Trunks fights with Goku Black and knocks him back, and Goku knocks Future Zamasu back. Future Mai, watching the battle from afar, is worried about Future Trunks. Goku Black and Future Zamasu emerge again, and the four engage in an intense match. Goku is being overwhelmed by Goku Black, surprised that he can also teleport. Future Trunks succeeds in stabbing Future Zamasu with his sword, but is surprised to see his wound instantly heal. Goku Black tries to attack Future Trunks but he is stopped by Goku. Future Trunks pushes Future Zamasu back and fires a Final Flash at him, shocked to see him emerge from the smoke unharmed. The corrupt Supreme Kai reveals he has an immortal, ultimate body befitting of him. Future Trunks begin to wonder what to do when Goku lands next to him. Future Zamasu says it is time for them to receive their retribution as Goku Black charges a Black Kamehameha from behind them. Before they can get out of the way, Future Zamasu captures them both and holds them in place. Goku Black fires the attack at the three of them, causing a huge explosion, and Goku and Future Trunks lay on the ground defeated while Future Zamasu is unharmed.
Both beaten, Future Trunks is perplexed that even Goku was defeated and wonders what they should do. Goku Black and Zamasu prepare a team attack to finish off the two Saiyans, but the attack is destroyed by Vegeta, having transformed into a Super Saiyan Blue and fired a God Final Flash, but Vegeta falls back to the ground unconscious. Goku Black and Future Zamasu soon find out that Goku and Future Trunks escaped in the confusion, and they decide to finish off Vegeta. Future Yajirobe saved Goku and Future Trunks, dragging them both back to the base of Earth's Resistance. He explains that he is dragging them because he cannot fly like they can, and he could only take two people with him. Goku Black and Future Zamasu prepare to finish off Vegeta when soldiers of Earth's resistance fire tear gas at them. While they fly upwards to escape it, Future Mai, wearing a mask, appears and picks Vegeta up. Future Mai meets with the others and thanks Future Yajirobe for saving Goku and Future Trunks, then Future Trunks thanks her for saving Vegeta.
Future Mai gets the box of capsules from Future Trunks' pocket and brings out the time machine. Goku Black begins searching for the Saiyans' ki, but notes that they are suppressing their ki enough so that it cannot be distinguished from the humans. Future Mai begins charging the time machine as she seats the knocked out Future Trunks, Vegeta and Goku in it. As the time machine prepares to leave, Future Trunks wakes up and Future Mai jumps out, while Future Trunks asks what she is doing and tells her to go with them, not wanting to leave her behind again. While Future Mai smiles at him, she thinks to herself that Future Trunks needs to survive no matter what. Black Goku and Future Zamasu spot the time machine and prepare to intercept, but are too late as the time machine disappears. Future Zamasu says they will return eventually, and once they do they will meet their end.
In the present timeline, Trunks is laying down as he sees the time machine appear, and the beaten and unconscious Goku, Vegeta and Future Trunks fall out. Trunks calls for Bulma, and they both are flustered at Vegeta's status. In Universe 10, Gowasu is watching the battle between Goku and Hit from the Universe 6 and 7 Gods of Destruction Selection Martial Arts Competition on a television as Zamasu appears with his tea. Also watching, Zamasu watches Goku transform into a Super Saiyan Blue, and wonders to himself how Goku, a "mere human", is able to clad himself in godly ki. He then asks Gowasu about the Super Dragon Balls shown on the screen, and Gowasu tells him about collecting them and getting any wish granted. Later, on Zuno's planet, Zamasu appears, after knocking back Zuno's attendant, demanding to know from him everything he knows about the Super Dragon Balls.
Zamasu is paying a visit to Zuno's planet, interested in hearing everything Zuno knows about the Super Dragon Balls. During Zuno's explanation, an impatient Zamasu threatens Zuno, claiming he can erase Zuno in an instant if he desired, demands to know how the Super Dragon Balls can be used, uninterested in their appearance and origins. Zuno complies, explaining to Zamasu how the Super Dragon Balls are used to grant any wish, also telling him the words needed to summon Super Shenron, and that he has to wait the entire lifespan of a cockroach (one year in time) to use them, due to Beerus already using them recently. Zamasu also asks Zuno for their location, and to tell him about Goku.
On Earth, at Capsule Corporation, Bulma feeds the beaten Goku, Vegeta and Future Trunks each a Senzu Bean, and they wake up. Goku jumps up and wants to go back to the alternate timeline for another fight, but Bulma explodes, chastising the three Saiyans for going to the future without Senzu Beans. Goku was supposed to be carrying them, but recalls that he went to the bathroom before going to the future, and left the Senzu Beans there. Trunks is surprised that the three couldn't defeat Goku Black, but they explain that not only did he assume a new transformation, Super Saiyan Rose, he also had Zamasu with him as an ally. Goku still wants to return, but Vegeta asks him how can he defeat enemies who cannot take damage. Goku suggests that they can also become immortal by eating a large amount of Senzu Beans, and the others are visibly dumbfounded. Future Trunks walks out with the Pilaf Gang and Trunks, informing them that Future Mai was still alive. Future Trunks shares his determination to return to the future, where Future Mai will be waiting for him. They are interrupted by the arrival of Beerus, Whis and Supreme Kai, who asks where Goku is. The Pilaf Gang serves the three sundaes when Goku, Vegeta and Bulma walk out to meet them. Supreme Kai informs everyone that Zuno has contacted him, saying that Zamasu confronted Zuno and asked him about Goku and the Super Dragon Balls, and Vegeta tells the Gods about Zamasu's appearance in the future, his immortality, and Super Saiyan Rose.
In Universe 10, Gowasu has ran out of tea, and calls for Zamasu to brew some more, but receives no response. Gowasu realizes Zamasu is gone. Beerus wonders why Zamasu and Goku Black's ki are so similar despite them being different people. Whis comes with a conclusion after hearing Zuno's and the Saiyans' stories. Whis explains that even though Zamasu is a fighting genius, he lost in a match with Goku, and was interested enough about him to ask Zuno. Zamasu is searching for enough power able to assert his justice. Goku then finishes what Whis was about to say, saying that Zamasu asked the Super Dragon Balls to "make him black." Whis further speculates that Zamasu used the Super Dragon Balls to create a copy of Goku as his servant, then a year later, when the Super Dragon Balls were able to be used again, Zamasu made another wish to make him immortal. With Zamasu's immortal body and Goku Black's ability to annihilate humans, they then went on a rampage in the future. Bulma wonders how much patience Zamasu has to wait an entire year to make another wish, but Beerus speculates that he used the Time Ring to travel ahead in time. Beerus then remembers that only official Kaioshins can use the Time Rings, and Zamasu is only an apprentice. The group deduces that Zamasu was somehow promoted to be a Kaioshin, but something awful must have happened to the current Kaioshin, Gowasu. Bulma speculates, then explains to Goku that Zamasu may have killed Gowasu and stole the Time Rings.
Whis says that the fact that Goku Black and Zamasu's ki are similar is still a mystery needed to be solved, and Goku wishes to go see Zamasu. Whis is worried about Gowasu's life. Supreme Kai offers to take the trio to Universe 10, but asks them to act peacefully as Zamasu has (not yet) done anything wrong. Vegeta walks away, uninterested in Zamasu as of now. In the alternate timeline, Future Yajirobe is running, and Future Mai picks him up on her motorcycle and takes him back to the underground shelter. Once arriving, two kids ask her where Future Trunks is, and Future Mai says he went somewhere far away but will return. Members of Earth's Resistance approach Future Mai, worried about what they will do since Goku and Vegeta lost. Future Mai desperately tries to inspire the soldiers, saying they must survive and wait.
In Universe 10, Gowasu is approached by Beerus, Whis, Supreme Kai and Goku, who ask where Zamasu is. Gowasu says that Zamasu has been absent all morning, and ask what he did. Goku begins to explain Zamasu's role in the alternate timeline, but Beerus smacks him on the head to silence him. Beerus asks Gowasu if Zamasu's behavior has grown to be even a little suspicious, and Gowasu answers that while Zamasu had doubts about how things are, he is now enlightened. Zamasu appears, apparently calm despite the appearance of Universe 7, telling Gowasu he brought his tea.
Zamasu, bringing Gowasu's tea, politely welcomes the Universe 7 group while wondering to himself why they are here. While Zamasu is brewing Gowasu's tea, Gowasu tells him that they are here to see him. Beerus and Whis tell Zamasu that they returned because Goku wanted to fight him again, but before Goku can say he doesn't recall asking about that, Beerus hits him and tells him to be quiet. Zamasu thinks to himself for a bit then calmly accepts Goku's challenge, claiming he was also unsatisfied with how long their last match ended. Beerus then dismisses the fight while Whis says they must go, as it is time for Beerus' afternoon nap. Whis presents Gowasu a gift: some Great Fortune snacks and some freshly-brewed green tea from Earth. The Universe 7 group leave, but not far from Universe 10, they stop and Whis forms a barrier. Supreme Kai asks how it went, and Whis and Beerus confirm that Zamasu is planning to kill Gowasu, noticing his extreme killing intent. Whis jokingly says Zamasu's killing intent is about as pungent as one of Beerus' farts, prompting the God of Destruction to berate him. Goku says he did not notice anything off about Zamasu's spirit, and Whis says that as the God of Destruction, it's only natural for Beerus to notice, along with Whis. Supreme Kai also did not notice, realizing that Gowasu does not notice, either. Goku suggests that they go back and help, but Beerus and Whis dismisses him, saying that they will not until they find some physical evidence. Whis creates a projected view of Gowasu and Zamasu and the group sit back and watch as Zamasu pours Gowasu some of the green tea. Gowasu drinks the tea, commenting that it calms the heart.
Meanwhile, in the alternate timeline, at a safe house, Goku Black and Future Zamasu discuss about killing Goku and how they aren't strong enough as opponents. Future Zamasu says if Goku Black kills Goku too quickly, he'd lose an opportunity to grow stronger by adapting to his fighting style, suggesting that he kills Goku slowly and carefully. Future Zamasu asks if it is nice to have immortal bodies due to the Super Dragon Balls. As a response, Goku Black turns into Super Saiyan Rose, and claims he is satisfied with this power and unlimited potential, which is necessary for their plan. Future Zamasu says it is ironic that they are using a "mortal" to go through with their plan to exterminate all mortals. At the Earth's Resistance base, Future Mai looks at the weakened civilians and soldiers and wonders how much longer they will hold out. Haru & Maki approach Future Mai with dumplings, saying they got them from Future Yajirobe. Despite Future Mai claiming she is fine, she is persuaded to eat one with the kids. Future Mai thinks to herself that even if by herself, she must protect their smiles.
In the present timeline, at Capsule Corporation, Bulma is repairing the time machine's transfer device, Vegeta is training in the Gravity Room, and Future Trunks is sitting outside sulking, thinking about how he ran away without Future Mai, again. Pilaf, Mai and Shu, who are watching him from behind a bush, worry about him, and the two boys suggest that Mai go cheer him up. When Pilaf and Shu jokingly act like Mai confessing her love for Future Trunks, Mai angrily yells at them to leave. Trunks, also watching his future counterpart, approaches him. Trunks berates him for moping around after one loss. Future Trunks politely asks Trunks to leave him alone, prompting Trunks to call Future Trunks a coward and he is unable to protect Future Mai that way. Trunks then asks him if he is mad, and challenges him to a fight, turning into a Super Saiyan. When Future Trunks does not move, Trunks agrees to make the first move and punches Future Trunks in the face, knocking him down. Trunks yells at Future Trunks to stand up, since he "is supposed to be a Saiyan" while Future Trunks glares at him.
Back in Universe 10, Gowasu claims the Universe 7 food is delicious and suggests Zamasu to try some, while Zamasu declines. The Universe 7 group notice Zamasu not taking any action at all, and Goku says he is growing hungry watching Gowasu eat. Whis tells him to be a little more patient. Zamasu walks behind Gowasu and begins to talk to him about his perspective over good and evil, and says that he will one day understand what Gowasu means. When Gowasu takes another bite of the Great Fortune, Zamasu prepares his God Split Cut energy blade, intending to kill him. Gowasu flinches, but it is shown that he choked on the Great Fortune, and washes it down with tea. Zamasu charges his attack again and successfully kills Gowasu. Whis then performs his Temporal Do-Over, going back in time to before Zamasu kills Gowasu. Whis suggests that they do this again, while Goku is confused, but realizes they went back in time. With the proper evidence, the group returns to Universe 10. Before Zamasu kills Gowasu, Whis creates a strong glove around Zamasu's hand to block the attack, shocking the apprentice. Gowasu wonders if that glove is a new item for tapping shoulders, while Zamasu is flustered and notices that the Universe 7 group has returned. Beerus explains to Gowasu that Zamasu tried to kill him, with Whis proving this by removing the glove, revealing Zamasu's energy blade. Gowasu, shocked, orders Zamasu to explain himself. While Zamasu remained silent, Supreme Kai explained Zamasu's plan to get rid of Gowasu, steal the Time Ring, use the Super Dragon Balls to create a fake Goku and wish for immortality, and exterminate all humanity. Zamasu is surprised they know this, and Goku says that they learned everything from going to the future. Zamasu then proclaims that he cannot fall in a place like this and prepares to attack, with Goku taking a fighting stance, but his attack is easily caught by Beerus. Telling him not to get too cocky, Beerus raises his hand in front of Zamasu, and says "Destroy", disintegrating Zamasu's entire body, killing him.
Back on Earth, Future Trunks and Trunks have been fighting, and Future Trunks realizes what Trunks is trying to teach him: win, no matter who the enemy is. Future Trunks thanks his younger self while shaking his hand, when Goku and Beerus suddenly crash in-between them with Whis; Goku commenting that they should have asked Supreme Kai to take them back. Beerus tells Future Trunks about Zamasu's death, and with that the future is saved as Goku Black should also disappear. Future Trunks asks if the future is really saved, as the Androids in his timeline did not disappear after the ones in the present were defeated. Beerus says that it is different if a God eliminated another God. Bulma says that it is no laughing matter if nothing in the future changed. Future Trunks says he hopes the future is now safe.
After Beerus explains that due to him killing Zamasu, the future Zamasu should disappear and the alternate timeline should be peaceful again, Future Trunks does not believe the future is safe and remains skeptical. Beerus is frustrated that his words as a god are being doubted as Whis leads him away. Future Trunks decides to go back to the future to check, and as Bulma hands him the capsule with the time machine, tells him to eat a proper meal before he goes. Future Trunks thinks against it, but Goku convinces him.
While everyone is eating dinner, Whis tells Beerus to try the soup. Beerus remarks it looks like the vomit of the dragons of Planet Gaspa, and he is hesitant to try it, but when he does, he is incredibly happy about the taste, and demands to know why Bulma never fed him anything that good. Trunks notices that Future Trunks is the only one not eating. Goku calls for Trunks, and when both answers, clarifies he meant Future Trunks, telling him that the food is delicious, and Future Trunks starts eating. Goku then says he will go with Future Trunks to check on the future, shutting down the fact said by Bulma that he gets sick while in the time machine. Beerus finds out Goku also does not think that Beerus is right, and Goku says they should still go check, also wanting to fight Zamasu if he is still there. Vegeta says it is dangerous to start fighting without a plan, as they cannot save the future that way, accidentally breaking his fork. Goku says he won't forget the Senzu Beans this time.
Later, as Future Trunks is prepared to leave, Beerus is annoyed that no one believes the future is now safe. Goku offers him to go along, but Beerus declines, believing that a god like him going back and forth in time would change history. Trunks seems to agree with Beerus, but Future Trunks explains to him the desire to travel back in time because the future was in peril. Future Trunks explains to Trunks about time traveling, how the present and the future are two completely different worlds, how he and Trunks are the same person but grew up in different worlds, and how the Android 18 in the present (who married Krillin and started a family) and the Android 18 in the future (who killed the Z-Fighters and caused worldwide destruction) are different. He also explained that he grew up in a world where Goku died from a heart virus and Vegeta was killed by the Androids, but Trunks grew up in a world where they are both alive because Future Trunks traveled back in time and prevented their deaths. Future Trunks thanks Beerus for his actions and for giving him hope, and also asks Vegeta to accompany him to the future. Vegeta agrees, but also tells Future Trunks that if the future really is peaceful now, he should never return to the past again. Future Trunks tells Mai that he will tell Future Mai hello for her, and tells her to take care of his present counterpart. Bulma, handing Goku the Senzu Beans, says she will also go to the future, as someone is gonna need to steer when heading back to the past. She then gives Future Trunks back his original jacket and bandana. With Future Trunks, Goku, Vegeta and Bulma in the time machine, they are all cramped as they leave in it. While they are leaving, Trunks flies after him and yells at the top of his lungs to win.
While traveling, Bulma is fascinated while Goku is already sick. Upon landing, they quickly realize the future did not change and their suspicions were right. Goku falls out of the time machine disoriented, and Future Zamasu and Goku Black immediately sense that they have returned. Future Trunks gives Bulma the capsule with the time machine as a soldier of Earth's Resistance meets the group and tells Future Trunks that Future Mai's life is in danger. They run back to the Resistance base, and see that Future Mai is out cold with every civilian around her. Goku gives Future Trunks a Senzu Bean, and he chews it up and kisses Future Mai so it would go down her throat. Goku is surprised Future Trunks did this, apparently having no idea what a kiss is, and Vegeta berates him for this as he is married. Bulma spots and recognizes Future Yajirobe. Future Mai wakes up and is relieved to see the group has returned. She meets Bulma, and they exchange pleasantries while Bulma hands her capsules with food and supplies. The three Saiyans immediately sense Goku Black and Future Zamasu and they head out to find them.
The two groups soon meet and while Vegeta says things won't go as they did last time, immediately turns Super Saiyan Blue and charges. Goku asks if Vegeta forgot about a plan, and Vegeta says to defeat Goku Black first. Goku Black turns Super Saiyan Rose and the two get into a brief fight. Goku explains to his opponents that they know about Goku Black's identity; Zamasu using the Super Dragon Balls to create a fake Goku. Goku Black says they are wrong and then reveals his true identity: he is Zamasu who has switched bodies with Goku (but kept his own heart and soul) with the Super Dragon Balls, and he has killed the Goku who had his body stolen.
After Goku Black reveals he is Zamasu, then Goku asks who is the Zamasu standing next to him. Future Zamasu answers that he is the Zamasu from Future Trunks' alternate timeline, and he teamed up with Goku Black (the Zamasu from the past). Goku Black tells Goku about how he, as a god, was pitifully defeated by a "mere human", and developed a hatred for Goku, and combining his body with Zamasu's heart caused him to gain greater strength. When Goku argues that he saw Beerus destroy the present Zamasu, Goku Black re-introduces the Time Ring. As he says that whatever happened with his past self has no effect on his current self, Goku Black re-calls killing Gowasu and taking his Potara earring, making himself the new Kaioshin. Goku Black asks Future Zamasu if he is ready, and Future Zamasu confirms. They both assume the same fighting stance, and charge two ki blasts that merge into a huge blast and fires it at the Saiyans, causing a huge explosion. The Saiyans managed to block the attack, having assumed their Super Saiyan Blue forms and Future Trunks his Super Saiyan 2 form. Goku charges towards Future Zamasu, with Vegeta yelling at him to remember that Future Zamasu is immortal, and blows off Future Zamasu's head, only for it to instantly regenerate. Goku Black turns into a Super Saiyan Rose and uses his Energy Blade, which Goku blocks, but he is kicked into a building. Future Trunks confirms that Goku is all right. Saying that he needed someone with the same heart and understanding to carry out his justice, Goku Black continues his story.
Using the Time Ring, Goku Black traveled to the future and kills Future Gowasu. Future Zamasu, bringing Future Gowasu his tea, sees Goku Black standing over Future Gowasu's corpse, which eventually disintegrates, and is flustered. Goku Black knew that Future Zamasu was planning on killing Future Gowasu, and hands him one Potara earring, saying he is now a Kaioshin. Future Zamasu, revealing his true nature, accepts the earring. Future Zamasu says he then used the Super Dragon Balls to wish for immortality, and in order to ensure that their wish could not be reverted, they destroyed the Super Dragon Balls to prevent anyone else from using them. Goku Black then traveled to each universe and killed every Kaioshin, also indirectly killing every God of Destruction. Being the only two godly forces left in the entire multiverse, Goku Black and Future Zamasu ensure success for their Zero-Humanity Plan, and they charge towards the Saiyans. Goku, Future Trunks, and Vegeta launch a ki blast barrage at them, but Future Zamasu willingly blocks the attack with his immortal body. The Saiyans are pressured by the pair's assault, and when Future Trunks and Vegeta are both knocked down, the two proceed to gang up on Goku. Having Goku cornered, Future Zamasu asks him if he wants to know what happened to his family.
Goku Black says that he used the Super Dragon Balls to switch bodies with Goku, while Goku was farming with Goten, and the young Saiyan is surprised that Goku suddenly became Zamasu, showing Chi-Chi. They both are surprised and afraid of what Goku has become, and Zamasu (with Goku's body) appears and kills Goku (with Zamasu's body). When Chi-Chi panicks and tries to run away with Goten, Zamasu kills them, as well. While he was telling this story, Goku Black stabs Goku through Future Zamasu, pinning him to the wall. Hearing this, Goku grows more and more angry, and powers up, breaking Goku Black's energy blade. Goku Black is fascinated at Goku's power-up, while a furious Goku fights both Future Zamasu and Goku Black and puts them on the defensive. When Goku attacks Goku Black again, Goku Black counters the attack, having increased his power due to taking Goku's powered-up beating, as noted by Future Zamasu. Goku Black creates an even bigger Energy Blade, and stabs Goku numerous times with spears of energy, before making them explode, knocking Goku down on the ground defeated. Future Trunks and Vegeta are cornered by Future Zamasu and Goku Black, and Future Trunks says that he will deal with Goku Black, even if he dies, and asks Vegeta to deal with Future Zamasu. Future Trunks says that Goku Black is doing nothing less but murder in Goku's body, and Goku Black tells him that he is the main reason why he decided to destroy humanity, calling Future Trunks a sinner.
Goku Black and Future Zamasu recall Future Trunks constantly going back and forth in time, continuously breaking the taboo of Gods, and that the creation of a new Time Ring is the proof of his sins. They recall Future Trunks saving Goku's life from the Heart Virus, saying that if he had died as history decided, Zamasu would not have sought Goku's body. They also mention Future Trunks destroying the Androids, as his actions caused the current events and that everything is his fault. Future Trunks grows angry at their words and Vegeta tells him not to listen to them. Future Trunks powers up and assaults Goku Black, but he is easily repelled and defeated while Vegeta is held back by Future Zamasu. Seeing this, Future Mai rushes for Future Trunks, with Bulma and Future Yajirobe following her. They are stopped by Future Trunks angrily punching the ground, and as he grows more and more angry, he begins to power up into a new Super Saiyan form never seen before, Super Saiyan Rage, surprising everyone. With his new bulky appearance, huge power, and loss of his pupils, Future Trunks declares he will kill Goku Black.
Future Trunks, having obtained a new power due to succumbing to his intense rage, prepares to do battle with Goku Black. Much to Goku Black's surprise, Future Trunks can not only fight on even terms with him, despite being a Super Saiyan Rose, but he can also put the corrupt former Kaioshin on the defensive. Vegeta witnesses as Future Zamasu steps in and, along with Goku Black, gang up on Future Trunks, but the Saiyan is able to fight both of them off. As Future Zamasu is knocked away, Vegeta, as a Super Saiyan Blue, steps in to prevent him from helping Goku Black. Future Trunks knocks Goku Black and blasts him with a huge attack, but Goku Black emerges from the smoke barely harmed, calling Future Trunks "a good dessert". Goku Black proceeds to jump Vegeta with Future Zamasu, defeating the Saiyan prince and knocking him to the ground, further angering Future Trunks. The duo are determined to execute their Zero-Humanity Plan, but are knocked down by a powered-up Future Trunks, who then fires a Masenko at them. The pair are knocked into a building, and Future Trunks attacks them with a barrage of ki blasts. As he is doing this, he tells Vegeta to take Bulma and the beaten Goku and go back to the present timeline in the Time Machine, in order to come up with a plan to win, saying he will hold them off by himself. Vegeta disagrees to this, but Goku weakly mutters that it's the only way to save the future. Vegeta orders Bulma to ready the Time Machine, picks up Goku, and hands Future Mai the Senzu Beans, entrusting her to look after Future Trunks. Goku Black notices the time machine flying off, and tries to blast it, but Future Trunks counters the blast with one of his own. Upon witnessing the Saiyans and Bulma retreat, Goku Black dismisses it, saying they will return in due time, and the corrupt pair direct their attention to Future Trunks.
In the present timeline, Trunks, Pilaf, Shu, Mai, Beerus and Whis watch as the time machine lands in front of them, with Trunks surprised that Future Trunks isn't with everyone else. The two gods assume that the alternate timeline is now safe due to the destruction of the present Zamasu, but an angry Bulma confronts them and tells them that the alternate timeline did not change at all, despite Beerus' assurance that a god destroying another god would affect the time stream. Beerus is nonchalant at discovering he was wrong, saying that he had a feeling nothing would change due to Future Trunks' words. Bulma is about to hit Beerus but is stopped by Vegeta, tossing the Pilaf Gang the mortally wounded Goku. Vegeta is determined to think of a plan and quickly return to the future, not wanting to waste the time given to them by Future Trunks. As Goku is put into a healing pod, Vegeta explains to the gods the real truth behind Goku Black's identity. With his curiosity satisfied, Beerus tells Whis to take him back home, saying that he disposed of the present Zamasu so he has no place interfering with another timeline's Zamasu, entrusting the rest to everyone else. Whis wishes them good luck as the two gods leave while Bulma yells at them, calling them cowards. Vegeta walks off, telling everyone to leave him alone as he tries to think of a plan.
At Goku's house, Goten is sleeping but he woken up by Trunks knocking on his window. At the police station, Krillin is confronted by Chi-Chi and Gohan, with the former constantly asking Krillin if he knew where Goku was, but Krillin replied that he did not, thinking to himself if he is still dealing with Goku Black. Chi-chi says that she was worried about Goku, and cooked a lot of food for him to eat, which is in a giant pack carried by Gohan. Krillin explains that as a police officer, if he knew anything he would share it to Chi-Chi, and rushes off to go on patrol. Gohan tries to calm Chi-Chi down as they both notice Goten and Trunks flying. At Capsule Corporation, Vegeta is walking and thinking as he overhears Bulma talking with Goten and Trunks, who is determined to go to the alternate timeline and help his future counterpart. Bulma tells him he would not be of help if he did go, and to leave it to Goku. Vegeta is about to silence Bulma as Chi-Chi calls for her (Gohan flying and carrying her). Bulma quickly tells Trunks and Goten to hide as they both land and Chi-Chi asks her where Goku is. Bulma plays innocent and says he has no idea, and Chi-Chi asks her where Goten and Trunks are, as she had seen them flying earlier, worrying about them being delinquents sneaking out so late at night. Shu appears and gives Bulma a status update about the time machine, and she explains to a confused Chi-Chi that the time machine is her newest product. Goten and Trunks crawl away but they are stopped by Vegeta, and Chi-Chi spots them, beginning to scold Goten. Krillin and Piccolo arrive, asking if they defeated Goku Black yet. Chi-Chi asks Bulma what's going on, when Goku appears, with his injuries healed but his stomach empty.
Inside Capsule Corp., everyone is sitting in a room while Goku eats the food Gohan was carrying for Chi-Chi. Bulma explains to everyone about Future Trunks' world being in danger, and a fake Goku rampaging, and Gohan is surprised to hear this as he had no idea Future Trunks was going through it despite his pleasant disposition when he had dinner with his family. Goku says he won't forgive Zamasu for stealing his body and killing Chi-Chi and Goten, but as Chi-Chi panicks and checks if Goten is ok, Goku explains it was in another timeline. Chi-Chi asks if Goku beat him, and Goku replies that they were beaten and had to escape to the past twice, and Chi-Chi questions Goku's fatherly duties for not beating the one responsible for killing his wife and son. Piccolo did not realize Goku Black was as strong as he is, having observed his initial fight with Goku, but Vegeta explains that due to Goku Black's Super Saiyan powers and his ability to grow stronger after each fight, along with Future Zamasu's Immortality, they are a perfect pair and cannot be beaten in a proper fight. Bulma tells everyone that Future Trunks is currently fighting both of them on his own, and Goku and Vegeta are stumped and cannot think of a plan. Piccolo suggests using the Evil Containment Wave, explaining to Vegeta that Master Roshi attempted to use it to seal away King Piccolo a long time ago. He suggests the idea of Goku and Vegeta fighting them back and looking for an opening to seal them, saying that they cannot come back out as long as the seal isn't broken. Vegeta asks Bulma how long until the time machine is ready, and she replies less than half a day. Piccolo asks if Vegeta plans to go in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, and Vegeta says that they can seal them after Vegeta pays them back for everything they have done. Piccolo prepares to demonstrate the Evil Containment Wave to Goku, but Goku uses Instant Transmission to teleport to Kame House and ask Master Roshi to teach it to him. Bulma says everyone else can watch as Piccolo does it.
At Kame House, Master Roshi agrees to teach Goku the Evil Containment Wave, wondering who Goku is fighting if he has to rely on that technique. Goku practices the technique on Turtle, attempting to seal him in a container, and manages to do so after a few failures. Master Roshi says he will create a talisman for Goku to use to complete the seal, in exchange for Goku taking him to a place with young girls. Meanwhile, in Universe 10, Beerus and Whis confront Gowasu about the alternate timeline not changing, with Beerus in a bad mood that everyone was on his case about being wrong. Beerus says he can easily destroy Zamasu if he went to the future, but refuses to do so as a God of Destruction has no business crossing the time stream. Gowasu, taking responsibility as he specifically chose Zamasu to be his apprentice, agrees to do something on the matter.
At Capsule Corporation, Bulma is re-fueling the time machine, preparing for the next trip to the alternate timeline, hoping that Future Trunks, who stayed behind to fight, is safe. On Kami's Lookout, Dende and Mr. Popo are on stand-by as they are startled by a giant explosion, caused by Vegeta, who has been training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. Vegeta has spent the past half-day (six months in the Time Chamber) training for the rematch against Goku Black, and he has destroyed the Time Chamber, creating a huge crater in Kami's Lookout. Vegeta then flies off. Meanwhile, Goku thanks Master Roshi for teaching him the Evil Containment Wave and creating an urn for the technique, and teleports away.
In the alternate timeline, Future Mai feeds Future Trunks, who is unconscious and injured, a Senzu Bean. When Future Trunks comes to, he realizes it was not Future Mai, it was actually Future Yajirobe, and is startled by the idea of Future Yajirobe mouth-feeding him a Senzu Bean. Future Yajirobe told him the Senzu Bean was grounded up by Haru & Maki, who are relieved to see Future Trunks okay. Future Trunks asks where Future Mai went, and Future Yajirobe said she headed back out as soon as she brought Future Trunks back to the resistance army's base, saying she discovered Goku Black's hideout. At the hideout, Goku Black and Future Zamasu are discussing their plans while waiting for Goku and Vegeta to return. At a distance away, Future Mai and two soldiers spy on the corrupt duo, realizing that getting closer would be dangerous. Future Trunks is seen flying to the hideout, hoping Future Mai does not do anything dumb. Future Mai prepares to use a sniper, equipping it with a special energy bullet left behind by Future Bulma, said to be several times stronger than a normal bullet. Future Mai advises the two soldiers to fall back, but they refuse, saying it would be an honor to die by Future Mai's side, and Future Mai is happy at their resolve. She aims the sniper at Goku Black and pulls the trigger, but the bullet only possessed enough force to knock Goku Black out of his chair; he remained unharmed from the attack. Goku Black and Future Zamasu pinpoint the humans' location and fire a Combined Energy Ball at them, but they are saved by the arrival of Future Trunks.
Future Mai apologizes to Future Trunks, and Future Trunks tells the soldiers to retreat. He thinks to himself about Future Zamasu's Immortality, realizing that Future Zamasu drops his guard after getting hit by an attack, planning to use that opportunity to assault Goku Black. Future Trunks powers up to his Super Saiyan Rage form and heads into battle, and Goku Black powers up to a Super Saiyan Rosé. Future Trunks pushes back Future Zamasu as he and Goku Black fight head-to-head, using his sword as a decoy to land a series of blows on Goku Black, then pushing him back with a Galick Gun, also destroying the hideout. As it appears that Goku Black has been defeated, Future Trunks directs his attention to Future Zamasu. Future Mai and the two soldiers help Future Trunks out by distracting Future Zamasu with their guns. Future Trunks thinks to himself that he only has enough stamina for one more huge attack, and counters Future Zamasu's attack and holds him in place. Future Trunks, theorizing that Future Zamasu's regeneration must have a limit, uses a Super Explosive Wave attack, but he is stabbed from behind by Goku Black. As Future Trunks falls to the ground defeated, the time machine with Goku, Vegeta and Bulma arrives. Future Trunks is relieved to see the Saiyans return as he falls unconscious.
As they get out, Goku and Vegeta immediately sense that Future Trunks' ki is fading. Bulma tells them to hurry while Goku Black and Future Zamasu appear in front of them. Bulma hides in a crater behind them, as Goku Black immediately destroys the time machine to prevent them from escaping again. Vegeta replies to their taunts by saying that this world will be their grave, and that they brought a coffin (referring to the urn) that they have to get used to as it is a little small. Future Mai is with Future Trunks as he wakes up, telling her the others have returned. As Future Zamasu is rambling on, Vegeta asks Goku where the urn is, and Goku is flustered as he realizes the urn was in the time machine, and is now destroyed. Bulma secretly uses a water hose to put out the fire on the time machine as the two duos prepare to fight, but they are interrupted by the arrival of Gowasu and Supreme Kai. Future Zamasu and Goku Black are surprised to see him, as he should have been killed, but realize he is from the past as he traveled using a Time Ring. Gowasu says that Beerus told him everything, and that he is ashamed of Zamasu. Goku tells him that the Zamasu he knew is actually Goku Black, causing confusion. So Gowasu started to addressed Goku Black with the same speech. Goku wonders what happened with Whis when Goku Black reminds everyone that he killed every God, knowing that Whis is stronger than Beerus. Supreme Kai tells him that once a God of Destruction dies, then their attendant, the angel, ceases to exist until a new God appears. Goku Black and Future Zamasu suddenly fire Ki Blasts at Gowasu and Supreme Kai, but they are shielded by Goku and Vegeta, having assumed their Super Saiyan Blue forms. Gowasu is also shocked to learn that the Dragon Balls were also destroyed, and keels over upon learning that the Gods cannot be revived. Goku and Vegeta advise the two Kaioshin to return home, but they insist to stand by and watch the battle. Vegeta decides to fight Goku Black, saying that since he is superior to the real Goku, he won't lose to the fake one.
As the two pairs start fighting, Goku Black immediately realizes Vegeta's increased strength and is being pushed back by the Saiyan prince. Future Zamasu, surprised by this, tries to help Goku Black but Goku focuses on preventing the corrupt Kaioshin from helping. Bulma takes the opportunity to bring out a garage from a capsule, saying she will repair the time machine in no time. Future Trunks and Future Mai appear, and Bulma is relieved to see Future Trunks is okay. She then hands Future Trunks some super glue, saying he can fix the urn as he was good at jigsaw puzzles. As Vegeta is blocking every one of Goku Black's attacks and assaulting him relentlessly, he says that he, as the prince of Saiyans, will not lose to a fake who stole the body of Goku, who he himself developed that body from fighting in many fierce battles. As he pulls up Goku Black by his hair and knocks him back, Vegeta powers up as he calls Goku Black a fake.
Vegeta in his powered-up Super Saiyan Blue form continues to dominate Goku Black on the battlefield, while Goku is keeping Future Zamasu at bay to prevent him from helping his partner. Goku Black is sitting in the building he was thrown in, laughing to himself, calling Vegeta an "arrogant mortal". Goku Black then notices a huge energy wave approaching him, causing a large explosion. Vegeta tells Goku Black to emerge, knowing he's not one to be defeated by that kind of attack. Goku Black emerges and confronts Vegeta, saying that the reasoning behind Vegeta's sudden increase of power was from the anger of his son. Goku Black says he must have overlooked it because turning anger into power is a concept only a mortal could think of. Goku Black then creates his Aura Slide energy blade, completely pushing it into his left hand. He then crushes the blade with his hand and pulls the blade out, revealing a large, scythe-like variation of the blade. Goku Black calls the blade the product of his anger, as he says that his level of anger would make him the strongest in the world.
Goku Black attacks Vegeta with the scythe, and the Saiyan prince easily dodges the attack, but is surprised to see a large rift created from the swing. Vegeta cannot recognize the void inside of the slice, and Goku Black asks if what he sees is a different universe or the far future or past. Future Zamasu is proud of the fact that fighting strong enemies brings them to greater heights, but as he turns around he is suddenly knocked away by Goku. Future Zamasu laughs at the attack, saying that Goku's "mortal" mind is intellectually lacking enough to where he attacks Future Zamasu knowing he is immortal. Goku and Future Zamasu, along with Vegeta and Goku Black, continue their respective fights, causing a huge shockwave in the surrounding area which knocks Future Mai off the top of a building. Bulma and Future Trunks in Bulma's portable garage wonder what's going on. Future Trunks checks on Future Mai, who saved herself by hanging onto a loose pipe, and shows her that he successfully fixed the urn. Future Trunks asks Future Mai about the battle, and she looks into her binoculars, but she's shocked to see Future Zamasu flying towards her.
Bulma is flustered to hear about Zamasu approaching them, saying that the time machine hasn't been completely repaired yet. Future Trunks hands Future Mai the urn and volunteers to hold off Future Zamasu, but Bulma suggests to use the Evil Containment Wave. Future Trunks wonders how if Goku is not with them, but Bulma says that Future Trunks is going to use it. Back at the battlefield, Goku and Vegeta are being held up by clones created from the rift Goku Black made. Goku Black asks them if the work of a god left them frozen and unable to move. Vegeta and Goku try to attack the clones, but they simply reform themselves. Goku and Vegeta grow frustrated as more clones are made, and they both fire a barrage of energy blasts at the clones, but they still reform themselves. Goku Black taunts Goku and Vegeta, asking them what they will do as Future Zamasu is pursuing the others. Goku says he is not fighting fair, and Goku Black says he will fight fair once the others are killed and Goku and Vegeta will grow stronger with their anger. Vegeta tells Goku to use Instant Transmission t go to Future Trunks, but Goku says he is trying but the foul energy from the rift is preventing Goku from finding Future Trunks' energy.
Back at the garage, Future Trunks is learning the Evil Containment Wave doing various silly poses, but they aren't working. Bulma then remembers she recorded Piccolo using the technique on her cell phone. Future Trunks says that his method was completely different. Bulma thinks to herself then hands Future Mai her phone, saying she will buy some time for Future Trunks to learn the attack. Future Trunks says it's dangerous, but Bulma tells him to trust in his mother. Future Zamasu lands in front of Bulma, and Bulma attempts to flirt with him. When this fails, Future Zamasu glares at Bulma. Future Trunks and Future Mai appear to see Bulma held by her collar, and Future Trunks is reminded of his own mother held the same way before her death. Bulma is apparently unconscious, and Future Zamasu throws her aside. Future Trunks grows angry and transforms into his Super Saiyan Rage form. Future Zamasu wonders if he is buying time, but is surprised to see Future Trunks using the Evil Containment Wave on him. Future Trunks says that this is the strength of mortals as Future Zamasu is being thrown around in a green spiral. Future Trunks and Future Mai both yell out that he should not underestimate them. Future Trunks tells Future Mai to prepare herself as she opens the urn. Future Zamasu is successfully thrown into the urn and Future Mai closes it. Bulma congratulates them, and they are both surprised to see her okay, and she reminds them that they have to trust her. Bulma tells Future Mai to complete the seal with the paper amulet, but she quickly realizes that she forgot it in the past. Master Roshi is seen calling Capsule Corporation about Goku forgetting the paper amulet, and while Trunks tells Piccolo, Piccolo calls Goku an idiot. Bulma, Future Trunks and Future Mai desperately try to keep the urn closed, but their efforts are in vain as Future Zamasu pops back out, panting heavily.
Goku Black notes Future Zamasu's energy is disappearing and reappearing, also noting it is getting weaker, and uses Instant Transmission. With him leaving, the rift disappears, and so do the vast amount of clones created by it. Vegeta quickly tells Goku to use Instant Transmission himself. Everyone reunites, and Vegeta tells Bulma to leave this to them. Future Zamasu tells Goku Black that they cannot be careless or they will fail, as the mortals aren't as "mere" as they thought. They both agree that the time is ripe, and Future Zamasu puts his earring on his other ear. Goku, Vegeta, Gowasu and Supreme Kai immediately recognize what they are doing: the Potara fusion. The two fuse to become Fused Zamasu.
Goku, Vegeta and Future Trunks are in awe over the immense power of Fusde Zamasu. Supreme Kai and Gowasu, who are on the sidelines watching, realized they used the Potara to fuse. Fused Zamasu's pure energy creates a blinding explosion, forming into a halo behind him. Calling this power true justice, Fused Zamasu creates lightning bolts of energy to assault the Saiyans' surroundings. Vegeta orders Future Trunks to protect Bulma and Future Mai. As they prepare to go into the garage, Fused Zamasu tries to destroy it, but his attack is blocked by Goku and Vegeta's own energy waves. Future Trunks flies away with Bulma and Future Mai. Fused Zamasu creates sharp, exploding energy blades which explode around Goku and Vegeta, causing huge shockwaves around the surrounding area which caused parts of the Earth's Resistance base to collapse. As some civilians reach the surface, one of them is killed by Future Zamasu's energy attacks flying all over the place, which cause the others to freeze in place. Some civilians, including Future Yajirobe volunteer to check if it is safe, and Future Yajirobe is chosen to do the job. He tells the civilians the coast is clear. The group notice Fused Zamasu attacking the entire area, and some soldiers lose their fighting spirit upon seeing how powerful he is. Future Yajirobe secretly wishes that Goku can do something.
Goku and Vegeta are being pushed back by Fused Zamasu's power. Gowasu notes that by fusing, not only did both Zamasus grew stronger, they obtained even greater power that expanded to no end. Goku says that all they have to do is grow stronger themselves. Vegeta says that even if he doesn't know what they'll do, they cannot forgive Zamasu. At a safe location, Bulma takes her garage out of its capsule form and resumes her repairs of the time machine. While Future Mai offers to help, Future Trunks decides to go back and help Goku and Vegeta. Future Mai hands him the remaining Senzu Beans and wishes him luck. Vegeta attacks Fused Zamasu with Goku following him, and tries to hit him with some energy blasts, however Fused Zamasu takes no damage from the attack. Fused Zamasu creates a silhouette of his energy and fires a lightning bolt at Vegeta, causing him to crash to the ground. Goku is then hit with the same attack. With the two Saiyans defeated and knocked out, Fused Zamasu proceeds to destroy the world around him, causing numerous amounts of natural disasters stretching around the entire planet.
The civilians try to run, along with Haru & Maki, but Maki trips and falls. Before a burning pole falls on her, she is saved by Future Trunks. Future Trunks tells Future Yajirobe to take everyone to where Bulma's garage is, which is nearby. Goku and Vegeta wake up and are determined to win this battle as they both assume their Super Saiyan Blue forms again. Goku and Vegeta charge again, and Fused Zamasu attacks with his Lightning of Absolution. The two Saiyans block the attack and keep charging, destroying Fused Zamasu's energy silhouette. They both try to attack Fused Zamasu from both sides but Fused Zamasu easily blocks their punches. Fused Zamasu breaks both of their arms, and knocks them aside, once again using his Blades of Judgment attack. Future Trunks returns and sees Goku and Vegeta both beaten. Angry, he transforms into Super Saiyan Rage and charges at Fused Zamasu, who uses his Blades of Judgment. Future Trunks counters the attack with his own sword, and tries to attack Fused Zamasu with it, but his attack is blocked and he is sent plummeting to the ground. Fused Zamasu tries to destroy Future Trunks with a giant energy attack, but Future Trunks, not wanting to give up, retaliates with a Galick Gun, putting everyone's wishes into the attack. While running, Maki sees Future Trunks' discarded sword and goes towards it. While Future Trunks is being overpowered, he still does not wish to give up, but Vegeta gets up and fires his own Galick Gun to help his son.
Future Trunks' and Vegeta's Galick Guns eventually overpower Fused Zamasu's attack, causing a huge explosion. Future Trunks and Vegeta soon realize that their attack only made Fused Zamasu angry. When Fused Zamasu fires another Lightning of Absolution, Vegeta takes the attack full-force as it was meant for Future Trunks. When Vegeta is knocked out, Fused Zamasu prepares another attack, but Goku appears and collides with that attack with his God Kamehameha. As Fused Zamasu powers his attack, Goku does the same, pushing the attack back.
Goku is in an intense Energy Clash, clashing with Fused Zamasu's Holy Wrath with his own God Kamehameha. When Goku is being overpowered, he uses his full power to push the attack back at Fused Zamasu. The refugees and soldiers of Earth's Resistance are cooped up in Bulma's garage, and Future Mai notices Maki holding Future Trunks' discarded sword. Goku is successful at pushing Fused Zamasu's attack back, but as a result he cannot use either one of his arms due to the strain. Goku then notices Fused Zamasu beginning to mutate, gaining a purple devil-like appearance on the right side of his face. Regardless, Goku attacks Fused Zamasu with a barrage of kicks, and Fused Zamasu catches Goku's left foot and crushes it, but Goku uses his Kaio-ken to kick Fused Zamasu to the ground with his free leg. Goku immediately powers down and falls to the ground greviously injured. Goku groups up with Vegeta, Future Trunks, Supreme Kai and Gowasu, and they realize Goku's actions only made Fused Zamasu grow angry. Fused Zamasu angrily powers up, and his right arm begins to mutate in a similar fashion as his face. Gowasu points out Fused Zamasu's potential weakness: While Future Zamasu's body is immortal, Goku Black's body is not, and there is no synergy between Fused Zamasu's soul and body. This can cause his mortal and immortal halves to conflict, creating openings, but they will need large amounts of power to even deal any damage. Goku suggests using Potara so he and Vegeta can fuse, and Vegeta is completely against the idea, but soon realizes they have no other options. Vegeta reluctantly accepts the Potara earring and he and Goku eat a Senzu Bean. Goku asks Gowasu how come he and Vegeta split before when he was told the effects of Potara are permanent, and Gowasu explains that those who fuse that are not Supreme Kai will only stay fused for one hour. Vegeta and Goku, with one hour left to finish things, put on the earrings, and they fuse, and Vegito emerges.
Immediately after fusing, Vegito transforms into a Super Saiyan Blue, dubbing himself "Vegito Blue". Fused Zamasu fires a Holy Wrath at Vegito, who easily dissipates it, much to the corrupt God's shock. Vegito punches Fused Zamasu as he begins to once again lecture about gods and mortals, and Vegito challenges Fused Zamasu to squash him. The two then proceed to fight an intense battle, creating havoc and destruction in the surrounding area. The two fight to a stalemate, but Vegito is caught by a surprise punch and sent crashing to the ground. As Fused Zamasu prepares to finish him off with his God Split Cut, Vegito stabs him with his Spirit Sword. Vegito points out to Fused Zamasu that he is no longer immortal as he is permanently fused with a mortal, a mortal named "Goku". Fused Zamasu crushes Vegito's Spirit Sword and begins to power up even further, bulking up and growing larger in size. Gowasu explains that Fused Zamasu's mutation is caused by Zamasu's true feelings manifesting into power, and realizes that this is what Zamasu wished for the entire time. Bulma and Future Mai arrive, as Bulma has completely repaired the time machine, and Future Mai hands Future Trunks his (broken) sword. Future Trunks, thinking of Haru & Maki, powers up and he uses his sword's hilt as a base for his new sword created by his ki. Future Trunks then flies off towards the battle.
As Vegito continues to pummel around Fused Zamasu, he tries to finish him off with an empowered Final Kamehameha. Fused Zamasu emerges from the attack, and Vegito teleports directly to him to hit him with a god aura-cloaked punch, but as he does so, he immediately defuses back to Goku and Vegeta. Supreme Kai notes that it hasn't been an hour yet, and Gowasu says they used up all of the power they needed to sustain the fusion. Fused Zamasu takes the opportunity to knock Goku and Vegeta down together with the same punch from his powered-up mutated arm, sending the two Saiyans crashing to the ground beaten. As Fused Zamasu prepares to finish them off, his attack is countered by Super Saiyan Rage with his sword of ki. After a short struggle, Future Trunks slashes Fused Zamasu twice across the chest, but Fused Zamasu recovers from the attack and drives Future Trunks into a corner, asking him where he plans to go for help next while mocking about his mortal weakness.
Future Trunks states that he doesn't regret his weakness and begins to push Fused Zamasu back. As he declares that mortal work together and survive, his will to survive creates a giant, bright light around the fight scene. Haru & Maki, the soldiers of Earth's Resistance, Future Yajirobe, the refugees, Future Scratch, Future Android 8, Future Turtle, Bulma, and Future Mai all begin to be enveloped by the same light. A huge energy sphere appears in the sky, similar to the Spirit Bomb, and Future Trunks realizes it's the light from the energy of everyone on Earth. Future Trunks' sword of ki begins to glow from the light, and Goku and Vegeta give their remaining energy to Future Trunks, powering him up even further. Fused Zamasu attacks Future Trunks, but Future Trunks evades and takes to the air, where he absorbs the energy sphere and empowers his sword into a stronger form, resembling a large cleaver. Future Trunks then fights Fused Zamasu and stabs him with the sword before cleaving him in two.
With the death of the corrupt God, the alternate timeline is now at peace once again. Bulma and Future Mai arrive in the repaired Time Machine, and Future Mai hugs Future Trunks. Bulma tells him good job, wishing her future counterpart were alive to witness this. Supreme Kai and Gowasu also appear, and Goku and Vegeta hand Supreme Kai back his Potara earrings, but the group is interrupted by a giant cloud of smoke shrouding the sky. Gowasu and the others are surprised to see the sky of the entire world appear as silhouettes of Zamasu. Goku and Vegeta attempt to become Super Saiyan Blue, but due to their intense fight as Vegito, their energy is drained and they cannot maintain the form. Future Trunks becomes Super Saiyan Rage and flies into the sky with Goku and Vegeta following him. Goku charges a Kamehameha, Vegeta charges a Final Flash, and Future Trunks charges a Galick Gun, and the three Saiyans combine their attacks and fire them at the sky, but their attacks are easily nullified. Gowasu speculates that Zamasu is attempting to become the universe itself, having cast off his physical form of a God in order to become order and justice. Zamasu's foul energy begins shrouding the entire world, with his many faces in the sky firing off mouth beams causing destruction to the entire area. Goku, Vegeta and Future Trunks are overwhelmed by the amount of energy Zamasu is spewing and are sent crashing to the ground.
Zamasu's influence begins to reflect onto the present timeline, shocking Trunks and everyone else there. On Beerus' planet, Beerus and Whis begin to sense Zamasu's negative energy from their location, and they wonder what is happening in the future world. In the future world, Future Trunks and the group are isolated in a random space influenced by Zamasu's energy. Future Trunks realizes he cannot sense the ki of the civilians worldwide. Future Mai, angry at the idea that everyone has died, begins firing her gun at the Zamasu-shrouded sky. Future Mai then falls to the ground crying as Future Trunks tries to console her. Goku wishes he had one more Senzu Bean and thinks he found one in his pocket, but it turns out to be the button given to him by Zen-Oh. Goku asks Supreme Kai if the future's Zen-Oh is still alive, and Supreme Kai deduces that he should be as he cannot be defeated by any means. Goku presses the button and Future Zen-Oh instantly appears in front of them.
Goku happily hugs Future Zen-Oh and Supreme Kai and Gowasu bow in respect for him. Future Trunks asks who this is, and is surprised to hear from Bulma about Zen-Oh's status as the most eminent God in the multiverse. Future Zen-Oh asks who Goku is, realizing he called him, and he asks where he is, noticing the Zamasu-influenced area around him. Goku directs Future Zen-Oh to the perpetrator, Zamasu, whose face is appearing in the sky. Goku asks if he plans to erase Zamasu, and Future Zen-Oh confirms, also saying he will erase the entire world with him. As Future Zen-Oh prepares to do so, Goku quickly tells everyone to leave before Future Zen-Oh destroys them. Supreme Kai and Gowasu teleport out of the alternate timeline, and Bulma, Future Mai and Future Trunks climb onto and start up the time machine with Goku and Vegeta desperately hanging onto its legs. After the time machine disappeared, Future Zen-Oh erased the entire world, destroying Zamasu for good. The group in the present timeline notice Zamasu being destroyed, and the time machine successfully returns after Future Zen-Oh destroys the future universe. Trunks and Goten happily greet their fathers, Chi-Chi greets her husband, and Trunks greets his mother. Mai greets Future Trunks and meets Future Mai. Trunks is infatuated with Future Mai. Future Mai and Future Trunks are distraught over their world being destroyed by Future Zen-Oh. Beerus and Whis arrive, along with Supreme Kai and Gowasu, who apologizes to Beerus for the trouble. Beerus responds by telling him to pick his apprentices more wisely.
Goku and Future Trunks return to the future, noticing it is just an empty, blank void, but they notice Future Zen-Oh hovering. Goku picks him up and they return to the present, and a frazzled Beerus along with the other Gods bow for him. Goku asks Supreme Kai to take them to Zen-Oh's Palace, and Zen-Oh happily greets Goku and meets his future counterpart. Goku introduces the two to each other, fulfilling his promise of bringing Zen-Oh a friend. The two Zen-Oh happily greet each other. The Grand Priest asks Whis if this was his idea, but he says this was Goku's idea. Whis tells the Grand Priest to visit Universe 7 sometime, revealing him to be Whis' father.
At Capsule Corporation, the group is eating dinner and Whis reveals to Future Trunks that there is a way they can return to a time where their world wasn't destroyed. Beerus tells him not to give them any funny ideas, not wanting to create more Time Rings. Whis reminds Beerus that he already created a Time Ring himself when he destroyed Zamasu. Whis plans to return to a time before the future Beerus died due to Future Supreme Kai's death, telling him to destroy Future Zamasu. Goku wonders what Future Beerus can do to an immortal Zamasu, and Whis answers by saying he has a way to seal Zamasu that's more effective than the Evil Containment Wave. When Goku and the others wonder why he didn't mention this before, Beerus tells them to stop relying on the Gods so much. Whis says there will be a problem: as they are returning to a certain point in the past with an already alive Future Trunks and Future Mai, they would have to live with a second Future Trunks and Future Mai that already exists in that point in time. Future Mai thinks for a little bit and accepts it, wanting to live together with everyone she fought with. Whis and Beerus then leave. In Universe 10, Gowasu locks up the Time Rings seeing the new Time Ring in shame, blaming himself for the events that transpired.
Future Trunks and Future Mai prepare to leave and they say their goodbyes, with Future Mai given new clothes and capsules full of food and supplies from Bulma. Goku compliments Future Trunks for how much he's grown, saying he should be strong enough to handle any threat. Vegeta suddenly attacks Future Trunks, who easily blocks the attack, and the two smile at each other as Vegeta accepts how strong his son has gotten since his initial return to the past. As Future Trunks and Future Mai prepare to leave, Gohan and Piccolo arrive, and Gohan raises his fist at Future Trunks. Future Trunks, thinking of his teacher, begins to cry. Gohan yells at Future Trunks to take care of himself. Future Trunks accepts this and cries tears of joy, and says one last goodbye to everyone as he and Future Mai return to the future.
Late at night at Capsule Corporation, Bulma enters her lab, and after making sure she's not being followed, she reveals the Time Machine owned by Future Trunks (apparently repaired after Goku Black destroyed it, as Future Trunks and Future Mai traveled with Cell's time machine). Despite knowing that time manipulation is a major crime, Bulma insists on working on it as a scientist, proving that she could accomplish the same feat as her future self. Bulma tries to test it and turns it on, but it says "error". Bulma is frazzled and wonders if the material she is using cannot be used as the correct material the time machine needs only exists in the future. Bulma insists on not giving up and goes through the notebook left behind by Future Bulma.
At King Kai's planet, Goku decides to finally wish King Kai, Bubbles and Gregory back to life. Goku recalls the last time they used the Dragon Balls was to ask Shenron about the Super Dragon Balls, prior to the universal tournament, and deduces that enough time has passed by now so they can be used again. King Kai happily embraces Goku and thanks him for his kind words. Goku promises not to disappoint them and to treat reviving them as a priority. Bulma looks on her computer for the missing material, and ends up finding it, but it only exists on the Earth's core. Goku then teleports to her, and Bulma is surprised and succeeds in hiding the Time Machine by quickly turning the lights off (Goku appeared in-between her and the time machine so the time machine is behind Goku). Bulma berates Goku on not knocking, and Goku asks her for the Dragon Radar. Bulma lends it to him and Goku flies off. Bulma realizes she can ask Shenron to get her the material she needs for the time machine.
Master Roshi is relaxing at Kame House, and Chi-Chi and Android 18 are shopping with Marron. Android 18 thinks about Krillin, who always treats her and Marron but he never told Android 18 what he would want. Android 18 wants to surprise him with a present. Bulma eats a snack and waits for Goku to find the Dragon Balls, and Beerus and Whis suddenly stand behind her. The two Gods tell Bulma they have arrived because they want delicious food. Bulma plans to feed them food so they can leave before Goku finds the Dragon Balls. Bulma takes them to a crab house and they have fun with the lobster instead of eating it. Goku collects all the Dragon Balls and returns to Capsule Corp. Goku doesn't find Bulma there, and proceeds to call Shenron. Bulma notices the sky turning dark and hurries back to Capsule Corp., leaving Beerus and Whis there to eat. Shenron says that due to granting only one wish before, Goku has two wishes he can make. Before Goku can revive King Kai, he is interrupted by Android 18, Oolong, and Master Roshi. Oolong wants a wish for himself, but Master Roshi recalls him wishing for ladies' underwear (in order to prevent Pilaf from wishing for world domination).
Android 18 asks Goku if she can have the second wish, but Master Roshi and Oolong want it. Pilaf, Mai and Shu are hiding, and Pilaf tries to wish for world domination, but he is interrupted by Trunks and Goten, who want their wish granted. Android 18 tells them about growing up working for what they earn as that is good for their education. Pilaf tries to get the wish again but he is interrupted by Gohan with Pan. Gohan asks to use a wish to cure Pan, who is suffering from a fever and none of the hospital medicine is working due to her Saiyan blood. Everyone agrees, and Shenron grants the first wish of curing Pan. Pan is cured and she happily flies in the air. Thanking everyone, Gohan flies away with Pan, and Shenron asks for the last wish. Before Goku can wish for King Kai's revival, the others ask why King Kai can't just wait and they begin to argue for their wish.
Bulma arrives and wants the wish for herself. She talks Android 18 out of wishing by telling her that Krillin would rather have Android 18 and Marron home with him than a superficial present. She talks Master Roshi out of wishing by paying some girls 10 million Zeni to drive away with him. She talks Oolong out of wishing by paying Android 18 to flick Oolong away. She asks Goten and Trunks what their wish is, but they have no idea, and Bulma tells them to think about a wish first. In order to give Goku his wish, Bulma asks him to bring her the material she needs from the Earth's core, telling him to wear Capsule Corp's special suit. Shenron prepares to leave without granting any wish, but Bulma coerces him to stay because of Beerus (Shenron senses Beerus still at the crab shop). Beerus and Whis leave the crab shop and sense Goku's energy, meeting him at the Earth's core. Shenron is told to stay a little longer by Bulma, regardless of his body fading away.
Beerus, Whis and Goku return, and Bulma is exposed as Beerus recognizes the material as it is needed for a time machine. Whis reminds her of time traveling being a crime, and Beerus not only destroys the material, but also destroys her laboratory with the time machine. As Bulma cries, Goku prepares to wish King Kai back but before he can Shenron leaves due to staying for far too long. Goku apologizes and tells King Kai he'll do it next time, and King Kai yells at him.
Mr. Pig announces that Arale Norimaki has arrived to Dragon Ball Super. An opening showing the settings of Dr. Slump plays as Arale and the Gatchans runs and arrives to Senbei Norimaki's house. She catches Mr. Norimaki as he is leaving to West City to attend a world invention conference. Arale says she wants to go with him, but Mr. Norimaki drives off, telling her to house-sit while he is gone.
The scene changes to the world invention conference in West City, where an award will be presented to the scientist with the best invention. Goku is working security at the event (Chi-Chi pushes him to work as Mr. Satan presented him the job), and he is shown yawning in front of the door wearing a suit and he has gel in his hair. Bulma is also a nominee, and she is sitting at a table along with Vegeta and Trunks. Vegeta ignores the interviewer who attempts to ask him a question. Bulma and Trunks try to get Vegeta to smile just for the day, but Vegeta exclaims he doesn't care about an award. Outside, Goku rips his suit and his hair falls back into place, so he rips off the suit's sleeves and walks off. The award-presenting ceremony begins, and the winner of the best invention is announced to be Mr. Norimaki for his Reality Machine #2. Mr. Norimaki, eating loads of food at his table, is surprised to hear he won and showcases his invention on the stage. Using the Reality Machine, Mr. Norimaki conjures a girly magazine and Mr. Satan uses it to conjure an action figure of himself, impressed at the invention. Bulma and Trunks are also impressed at the invention. When Mr. Satan is about to hand Mr. Norimaki his medal, a voice yells out that he objects; the voice is turned out to be from Dr. Mashirito.
Dr. Mashirito is frustrated that even though he is Mr. Norimaki's rival, he was not invited to the ceremony. Mr. Norimaki points out that he died in the Dr. Slump comic, but Dr. Mashirito points out that he is a Ghost, and that he escaped from Hell upon hearing the news. Dr. Mashirito reveals he brought Arale and the Gatchans with them, having slipped a special chemical in their food while they were house-sitting, explaining the chemical named Playtine-X increases their desire to play by a hundred-fold. Dr. Mashirito tells Arale and the Gatchans to play with the attendees. Mr. Satan, wanting to put his name out there even more, offers to play with Arale, but she playfully but forcefully pushes Mr. Satan into the wall. Arale and the Gatchans then begin playing, causing havoc and destroying the whole building. Mr. Satan tells everyone to evacuate, and asks Vegeta if he can deal with Arale. Vegeta gets up and confronts her, calling her an undisciplined brat, and Arale is excited upon hearing that Vegeta is strong. Arale charges towards Vegeta, who takes a fighting stance.
Outside, Goku is in his normal Dogi and is taking a nap, but wakes up when Vegeta is knocked out of the building and crashes right next to him. Vegeta breaks the fourth wall by calling Arale a gag comic character with absurd strength. Goku and Arale spot each other, but they don't seem to recognize each other. Goku is reluctant on hitting Arale to knock her out. Vegeta powers up and lands a full-force hit on Arale, knocking her far away. When Vegeta smirks, Arale knocks him down from behind, having been sent around the globe. Vegeta breaks the fourth wall again by saying that common sense doesn't apply to Arale as she is a gag character. Vegeta points out a UFO, and when Arale turns around, Vegeta kicks her into a statue and her head falls off. The group is surprised to see Arale is still functional and casually puts her head back on. Arale points out that she is a robot, and casually punches the ground, splitting the Earth in half. Arale knocks Vegeta away with her Arale Kick. Arale catches up to Vegeta and uses a Headbutt on him, launching the Saiyan far away.
Arale wants to play with Goku now, who recognizes her after watching that headbutt. Arale also recognizes Goku. Excited, Goku compliments Arale's strength and transforms into a Super Saiyan Blue. Arale, excited, fires her N'cha Cannon and Goku counters it with his God Kamehameha, causing an explosion. Arale prepares to fire another N'Cha Cannon, this time with its power x100, and Goku says he's not sure if he can counter it, but he attempts to, charging another God Kamehameha. Mr. Satan is worried that it's the end of the world if Goku can't stop her. Bulma calls Whis, who asks for Beerus to come and deal with Arale. Whis tells her that Beerus has just fallen asleep and that a God like him should not be used like a temp staff. Mr. Norimaki and Trunks are trying to stop Dr. Mashirito, but cannot touch him as he is a Ghost. Mr. Norimaki suggests that they use poo, and conjures some with the Reality Machine #2. Goku and Arale are charging their attacks as Trunks hurls the poo in front of Arale, who begins poking at it with a stick. This is an attempt to buy time as they must come up with something before Arale loses interest in the poop.
Bulma comes up with another idea and picks up the video camera showing the conference live around the world. She points it at Reality Machine #2, and tells everyone to imagine the most delicious food they can think of. Everyone around the world watching does so, and when Reality Machine #2 gets everyone's images, he creates a small, brown orb which consists of the food everyone thought of. Beerus immediately wakes up upon sensing this food, and he and Whis crash onto the scene, with Whis commenting he never went that fast before. Beerus picks up the orb as Dr. Mashirito condescendingly talks to him, but he is destroyed with Whis claiming that Beerus can destroy anything, even if it is a ghost. Beerus eats the orb, and is incredibly overjoyed by its taste. Arale calls Beerus a cat and asks him to play, but the insulted Beerus taps his foot and creates a shockwave that knocks everyone back. Beerus prepares to attack Arale with an energy beam, but before he does so, his stomach begins convulsing due to what he ate and he and Whis instantly go back home.
Later, the chemical runs out and Arale and the Gatchans calm down. Mr. Norimaki prepares to leave with them and he apologizes to the group for the trouble. Goku and Arale agree to fight again and they say their goodbyes. Trunks asks Bulma if they are forgetting something, and the scene changes to Vegeta hanging off a branch on a cliff, claiming he will never fight a gag comic character again.
Champa calls Beerus and challenges him to a baseball game between Universe 6 and Universe 7 in order to "cultivate the friendship" between them, and after Beerus accept the challenge, Champa reveals to Vados that he tricked Beerus into accepting the game, only so that Champa could steal Earth's delicious food for himself and claims that he'll let someone else play in his place. Vados, however, tricks Champa into entering the game after she claims that Earth's food will be tastier after practising sports, something that Champa believes in and decides to be part of the game, and asks Vados the rules of baseball before they arrive on Earth.
At the baseball arena, Beerus' team, composed of Goku, Piccolo, Krillin, Trunks, Gohan and Yamcha are preparing for the game, while Beerus acts as their coach. Meanwhile, Champa's team, composed of Champa himself, Cabba, Botamo, Magetta, Vegeta and Goten (replacing Hit and Frost), are also preparing for the game. Whis and Vados, the referees for the game, declare that all sorts of destruction are forbidden and tells each time to bow. Goku notices that Hit is not part of Champa's team, and Champa states that getting in touch with Hit was too difficult. Bulma, Videl, 18, Chi-Chi and Puar are spectating, and while 18 wonders if Yamcha was suitable as captain, both Puar and Bulma state that baseball was Yamchan's specialty, and noticed that everyone else from Beerus' team didn't understand baseball at all. As Goku prepares to pitch, Champa tells him to throw it with all he's got, and Goku then transforms into Super Saiyan Blue. Beerus shouts from the bench to not let Champa hit, and when Bulma informs him that its only a "friendship" match, Beerus claims that it was still a fight between them, and he would win it. Goku throws the ball, and causes it a huge crater on the field, but Champa failed it to hit nonetheless so Whis declares it a strike. Whis and Vados use their powers to repair the field. As Whis reminds Goku that destruction was forbidden in the game, he tells Goku that if he destroys the field again, he would be thrown out, and Beerus tells Goku to throw it lightly next time. However, Goku throws the ball too slow, and after a long period of time waiting, Champa finally hits the ball, but it goes out in space, and Gohan declars it a foul and Whis declares it strike two.
For the third time, Goku throws the ball, but Champa finally hits it and starts running around the field, but Trunks launched an energy blast onto the ball to prevent a homerun and has it fall right on Trunks' hand, and Whis declares Champa out as a result. Champa claims that Trunks cheated, but Vados notes that the rules don't say its against the use of energy. Yamcha wants to pitch next, while Botamo says he'll knock it to pieces. Yamcha uses his Wolf Fang Pitching Fist to throw the ball, and when Botamo is about to hit the ball, Yamcha controls the ball to avoid the bat and successfully land a strike. Yamcha claims that it was the combination of his Wolf Fang Fist and his Spirit Ball attacks, declaring his greatest technique. Yamcha successfully lands two more strikes and Whis declares it batter out. Cabba is next, but Yamcha again manages to land three strikes. As the others praise Yamcha, Vegeta is next and claims he figured baseball out.
As Vegeta prepares to pitch, Bulma cheers on both Vegeta and Yamcha, leaving Yamcha blushing and claims he won't lose to Vegeta at baseball. Vegeta throws the ball and hits Yamcha with it, and Vegeta believes he won, but Whis declares it hit by pitch, and Bulma asks Vegeta what was he doing, and Vegeta responds by saying that he wins by "beating" everyone, something that Goku also believes. Whis, however, informs Vegeta that if he hits Yamcha again, he'll be thrown out for reckless pitching, and both Vegeta and Goku realize that they're not supposed to hit the players, and Vegeta declares baseball as an annoying game, and Goku takes Yamcha's place. Vegeta goes Super Saiyan Blue, and so does Goku, stating he'll use his full power. As Vegeta pitches the ball at full power, Goku manages to hit the ball, but the pressure causes Goku to struggle in sending the ball flying away, and when Goku starts pushing the ball away, Vegeta launches a barrage of energy blasts towards Goku, pushing him back to prevent him from pushing the ball away. As Vegeta prepares his Final Flash, he gets distracted by Yamcha's running and Goku finally sends the ball away, but Botamo catches it and Yamcha starts running. When Cabba throws the ball back to Vegeta, Yamcha is approaching, with Champa behind him, but Vegeta catches ball and elbows Yamcha, followed by Champa hitting Yamcha with his knee, sending him flying away. Vados declares Champa's obstruction as unfair and declares Yamcha safe. As Gohan prepares to head to the arena, Piccolo informs him that Maggeta, the pitcher this time, can't fly, and tells Gohan to hit the ball to the air. Gohan successfully manages to do so, but Magetta launches Botamo in the air to catch the ball, and as Yamcha is running, Cabba shouts to someone pick him off and Champa throws the ball at Yamcha, causing him to fall flat on his face. As Champa believes he won, Whis declares Yamcha safe and Vados informs Champa that Yamcha was safe because Champa needed to be holding the ball to have Yamcha out.
As Champa mocks Yamcha as calls their coach a wuss, Beerus takes insult and confronts Champa. As the two brothers began arguing more and more, they soon begin clashing and causing destruction around the arena, and everyone hides inside Whis and Vados' shields, but Goku states that if two Gods of Destruction fight one another, the entire universe would be destroyed. As their battle heats up, they are stopped by Whis and Vados, who again inform them that destruction was forbidden and call the game off. As Champa and Beerus believe they ended up on a tie, Vados informs him that it was Universe 7's walk-off victory and as they look at the crater, they see Yamcha with his hand at the base, which gained Universe 7 the win. As everyone praises Yamcha, Krillin notice that Yamcha's laying pose was familiar, and Piccolo claims its a "bitter memory", and so does Gohan. Yamcha then passes out after saying that he may have his own different walk-out. During their trip back to Universe 6, Champa is seen practising along with the rest of the Universe 6 members, and claims he won't lose next time, and Vados notices that Champa forgot the real reason he challenged Beerus in the first place.
The Assassin's Return
Gohan, Piccolo, and Goten discover the lifeless body of Goku laying on the ground and begin to mourn his death, then the title page appears.
At Goku's house, Goku is quietly meditating by himself, sensing everything around him. He is interrupted by Chi-Chi telling him that dinner is ready. Chi-Chi and Goten watch Goku's strange behavior, as he picks up and eats one grain of rice after another instead of eating how he usually does. He thinks to himself that he cannot sense "his" energy, and that "he" might be masking it. He tells Chi-Chi that he senses three cockroaches behind the fridge. He then immediately senses someone outside put up their fist and rushes to confront that person, only to realize that it was the mailman about to knock on the door. The mailman nervously hands Goku his mail as the Saiyan apologetically says hello.
On Beerus' planet, Vegeta is training with Whis and Beerus notes that Goku is not there, wondering why he has skipped on training recently. He wonders if Goku is training on his own on Earth, as he expects Goku to be able to impress Zen-Oh with his strength at the multi-universal tournament in order to keep Zen-Oh satisfied, calling Goku the lead fighter of Universe 7, much to Vegeta's chagrin. Beerus orders Whis to personally train Goku. Vegeta asks Whis if Goku is undergoing some kind of special training, asking to be a part of that training, as well. As Whis tells him Vegeta he only completed a partial portion of his training regimen, Vegeta becomes a Super Saiyan Blue and prepares to finish the rest.
In a city, Goku is grocery shopping for Chi-Chi, still sensing everything around him. Gohan and Goten are following Goku, worried about their father. Not wanting to be discovered, Gohan proposes they go incognito, and he becomes the Great Saiyaman. Gohan offers Goten the same costume, but Goten, calling the costume lame, settles on just sunglasses. Gohan is disappointed as in the past Goten thought the costume was cool. Keeping his eyes closed, Goku is walking, having walked in front of a movie playing in the theater, an aquarium, and in a women's lingerie store. Goku finally opens his eyes to see a piece of a bra and panties on a mannequin. Goku then walks outside, and Gohan and Goten apologize to the skeptical storekeepers. Goku begins to frantically look around for whatever he's looking for, and casually walks into the open road as Bulma crashes into him, destroying her car against Goku. Bulma, frustrated, tries to hit Goku but Goku instinctively dodges it. Gohan and Goten are confused as Goku usually never dodges Bulma's punches. Gohan plans to ask Goku what his deal is over dinner.
Later that night, the Son Family and Piccolo are having dinner and Gohan and Videl's house. Goku begins to eat like he usually does again, and when he's alone, Gohan and Goten approach him and ask him what's wrong. Goku tells them he knew they were following him in the city. Goku promises them to keep this a secret from Chi-Chi, and tells them that he senses that someone is after his life.
Meanwhile, in a populated city in Universe 6, Hit is assigned the job to assassinate someone wealthy. He walks to the huge building where the individual serves as the boss and uses Time-Skip to go through the gate while not alerting the guards. Hit casually uses Time-Skip to slip pass everyone in the building completely unnoticed. As he goes up the elevator, the guards in the room where the boss is realize there is no guests scheduled at this time, and prepare to confront whoever comes up the elevator. Hit, sensing them, uses Time-Skip to freeze time for everyone in the room besides him and his target sitting in the back. Hit casually dodges the boss's secret laser beam attack, and as he pleads for his life, Hit instantly kills him with one blow to his heart. Ending the Time-Skip, Hit disappears as the confused guards check on their boss, dead on the floor. Hit takes the chain the boss was wearing and hangs it up, revealing his next target to be Goku.
Back on Earth, Piccolo notices Gohan's concern for Goku, asking what's wrong and to not keep secrets from him. Gohan tells him about someone being after Goku's life. Piccolo appears to not be worried as he says there aren't many people who can suddenly take Goku's life, but is surprised to hear Gohan saying Hit. Goku senses Hit approaching and quietly flies away, not wanting anyone to get in the way of his fight. Piccolo, Gohan and Goten soon notice that Goku is gone. Vegeta and Whis are still training, and Vegeta says he has three more times. Whis corrects him by saying he has thirteen more times.
In a secluded location, Goku senses Hit's energy, but it's faint. Knowing he's there, Goku becomes a Super Saiyan Blue. Piccolo, Gohan and Goten can no longer sense Goku's energy and realize he transformed and is using his godly ki. They then fly to where they last sensed Goku's energy. Goku tells Hit to show himself, and he stands behind Goku, telling him he was hired to kill him. Although, Hit says that if Goku were to disappear, he will spare him and say that he killed him, but Goku declines the offer. Hit tells Goku to turn around, as his method of assassination works with one blow to the front. Goku does so and prepares to fight, reminding Hit that his Time-Skip won't work on him, but Hit says he knows not to use it. Goku attacks Hit, but none of his attacks are working as they are simply going through Hit. Goku then backs up and charges a Ki Blast, while Hit holds his fist up. Goku notes that he won't be able to land a punch at that distance, but Hit uses the same attack he used on his last assassination: a single, invisible strike to Goku's heart. Goku's Ki Blast is shot into space as he falls over and dies. Hit says he will come back to see Goku's grave and disappears.
The same scene from the beginning of the episode now plays, with Gohan, Goten and Piccolo discovering Goku's dead body and mourning his death.
Gohan, Goten, and Piccolo are unsuccessfully trying to revive Goku. Gohan suddenly senses an energy blast falling from the sky, and Piccolo tells them to move out of the way as the blast hits Goku, bringing him back to life. Piccolo claims that Goku probably launched that attack before collapsing in order to revive himself, and Goku states he actually saw King Yenma for a brief moment. As Goten claims he'll get revenge on Hit for killing him, Goku refuses, saying that their fight was between them, and wouldn't allow him to interfere. Goku then calls out for Hit, knowing he was still around, and claims he was still alive. Hit masks his energy, but his voice can be heard throughout the land, and tells Goku he indeed fulfilled his mission because Goku was killed, even if momentarily. Goku, however, states it didn't count because of the "three second rule". Goku then goes Super Saiyan Blue and flies away, while telling Hit to follow him.
Goku arrives in a forest, and tells Hit to face him so they could fight again. Hit then uses his Invisible Killing Strike, which passes through the trees, but Goku narrowly avoids the attack, while saying that Hit failed in his promise to kill him with a single strike. Goku states he was surprised that Hit's attacks were able to pass through the trees, but states that its helping him figure out his ability; Hit is lauching invisible energy blasts. Hit states that knowing about it wouldn't stop them, and Goku tells Hit to go somewhere with more space for them to fight.
As they head to an abyss near the ocean, Goku charges up, and Hit states that letting off his energy in the darkness was like telling him exactly where he was. Hit states he'd never missed a target before, and as Goku claims he thought the same, Hit claims he'd used any methods to get his targets, before launching another invisible energy blast, but Goku avoids the attack, and Hit claims that Goku indeed figured the technique out in his third try. As Goku charges at Hit, he can't hit him, Hit avoiding the attacks, even when extreme close to Goku. Goku wonders if it was the Afterimage Technique, but quickly learns it wasn't the case. Hit suddenly disappears and re-appears next to Goku and sends him to the ground with his Sledgehammer attack, burying Goku underneath several rocks, but Goku quickly breaks out of it. Goku claims that Hit was stronger since the tournament, but states that Hit could go even further. Goku suddenly begins shaking, and wonders why. Hit claims Goku's shaking was from fear rather than excitement, and Goku states that he was right.
Meanwhile at Beerus' Planet, Vegeta is training with Whis, and Vegeta quickly gets exhausted. Whis claims there was three more times to go, and Vegeta claims he'll trade the remaining three times to go for an extra-fine steak. Whis, however, claims he'd already had steak several times and would need something tasty he'd never eaten before. Vegeta quickly claims he'll put the Granny's Secret Sauce on it, and Whis accepts.
Back on Earth, Goku states that he couldn't land a single strike on Hit, but would give it a shot nonetheless and charges at him, but passes right through him several times, while Hit doesn't move at all. Hit suddenly moves in an incredibly speed and hits Goku with a knee to the gut. Goku claims there was something off, feeling as if there was two of Hit, and Hit kicks Goku into the rocks. Champa, with Vados at this side, who are watching the battle, is surprised that Goku was still alive, while claiming that Hit was at his best. Vados states that Goku was indeed having trouble, and Champa wonders why Goku can't land a strike on Hit. Vados asks Champa if he knew the reason for Hit's Time-Skip being called by that name, and Champa claims it was because he stopped time. Vados, however, states that Hit wasn't stopping time, but actually "skipping" time, and Champa wonders what "skipping time" meant. Vados explains that Hit could store the time he'd skipped, and with that stored time, Hit could create a separate space, a parallel world, and could move freely to and from there, and states that was the reason he could be seen, but not touched. Champa comically states it was so amazing that he couldn't even understand.
As Goku is recuperating his energy, he claims that a little more time and he would get ahold of something, and Hit suddenly appears in front of him and sarcastically asks Goku to get ahold of him. Goku tries to land several kicks and punches, but it passes right through Hit once again. Hit uses his Time-Storage to attack Goku and punches him, but Goku manages to scratch him before being sent flying back by the punch, and Hit states he wasn't surprised that Goku could actually scratch him. Vados claims that their fight was like watching a re-creation of the tournament, and Champa claims that Goku would be a threat in the next tournament, and claims that Vados was right in hiring Hit to assassinate Goku. Vados, however, claims she only hired Hit by proxy and the real client was someone else. As Goku lands punches and kicks that pass through Hit, Goku claims that his body was actually somewhere else when he's being attacked, something that Hit confirms, and Goku states that Hit couldn't attack him while using the Time-Storage and only returned to the real world when Hit decided to attack, and states he aimed at that very moment. Hit states it wasn't that he couldn't attack, before sending another invisible blast towards Goku. Vados claims that Hit wasn't holding back when showing his movements and states that Hit was actually enjoying the fight.
As Champa claims than an assassin shouldn't be enjoying fighting their targets, Vados claims that at that very moment, Hit wasn't an assassin, but merely a Martial Artist, and Hit states that he still could attack despite his body being somewhere else. Goku compliments Hit and says that he's always one step ahead of him, but claims he'd never let anyone beat him and get away with it, but Beerus, who was watching from afar with Whis and Vegeta, claims that Goku kept getting beat by him. Goku asks them what they were doing there, and Beerus informs him they were there to observe the fight, and Whis states they weren't the only ones and points towards Champa and Vados. Beerus tells Goku to hurry and finish the fight, and begins powering up and Hit teleports himself to his separate space, but Goku's energy begins cracking Hit's space, much to his, Champa and Vados' shock. As Hit's space cracks, Goku launches a Kamehameha, which completely destroys Hit's space and the two fall to the ground exhausted.
As the sun rises, Goku and Hit smile at their tremendous fight, and Vegeta claims that Goku seemed to enjoy fighting Hit more than he enjoyed fighting him, but Goku claims that it wasn't the case as Hit was after his life. Vegeta asks Hit who hired him, but Hit refuses to answer, saying that he wouldn't disclose his client. Beerus asks Vegeta if he didn't secretly hired Hit, but Vegeta tells Beerus to not be stupid, and Beerus threatens by calling him stupid and Vegeta quickly apologises. Whis asks Vegeta if he didn't any clue on who hired Hit and after some quick thinking, Vegeta looks at Goku and deduces that Goku hired Hit himself so he could fight him at his best, something that Goku confirmed. Hit asks if it was true, and Goku apologises for hiding it, saying that if Hit knew that Goku had hired him, he wouldn't fight him at full power. Hit smiles and claims that Goku was so deep that he couldn't understand him, and Goku asks in a friendly way if he was complementing him. Beerus asks Whis if he had anything to do with it, and Whis claims that Goku begged him to help him hire Hit, so Whis contacted Vados and had her contact Hit and hire him to go after Goku. Beerus tells Whis to not do such reckless things again, but Whis claims that Beerus wanted Goku trained, but Beerus claimed he wanted Whis to train Goku himself.
As Piccolo, Goten and Gohan arrive with Chi-Chi with them, Hit asks Goku if his mission had a time limit, and Goku says there isn't. Hit claims that he couldn't kill him with so many witnesses around and smiled as he told Goku he would take his time killing him and told him to watch his back before flying away. Champa and Vados depart afterwards as Goku's friends arrive. Chi-Chi asks Goku if he was all right and says that Piccolo told her everything, and asks Goku who hired Hit to kill him. Goku fakes not knowing who hired Hit, and Chi-Chi assumes it was Frost and Goku quietly tells Vegeta to not tell anyone that Goku hired him. Beerus and Whis remind Vegeta about their agreement about the steak with Granny's Secret Sauce, but Vegeta panicks after remembering he made everything up, and Goku claims he wants to fight Hit again soon.
Saiyaman's Big Movie
Mr. Satan reveals to Videl and Gohan that he is starring in a new superhero film: "Great Saiyaman vs. Mister Satan"! As Videl, Gohan, and Pan check out the film set, the lead in the film –- a famous but self-absorbed actor named Barry Kahn – becomes enamored with Videl and tries to woo her. Videl rejects Barry in front of the entire film crew, which angers him. Seeking revenge on Videl for his humiliation, Barry convinces Gohan to take over as the main stuntman for the film in order to embarrass and potentially maim him. As Gohan is the real Great Saiyaman, he uses his powers to easily take on the role. Gohan later dons the suit again for a fight against a pair of bank robbers. When the film crew accuses Gohan of using the suit and stopping the bank robbery, Bulma bails him out. However, Gohan's identity is accidentally revealed to Cocoa, who is a starlet in the film. Cocoa blackmails Gohan into flying her around the city. Meanwhile, Jaco chases after a Watagashi that he lets escape from his spaceship while at a space ramen stand. Suspecting that the Great Saiyaman might be the host of Watagashi, Jaco attacks Gohan with a vaporizing cannon. Gohan manages to dodge Jaco's cannon blast and learns of Watagashi's ability to possess its hosts. Cocoa brings Gohan back to her apartment to rehearse, but she hides the fact that she was forced by Barry to let photos be taken of the pair for the tabloids. She has a secret change of heart and does not let the photos get taken in her room. When the pair go to the roof the next morning, Barry gets the pictures of Gohan getting a kiss from Cocoa and revealing himself as Great Saiyaman. Barry immediately brings the photos to Videl in an attempt to expose Gohan as a cheater. As he tries to woo Videl again, she sees through Barry's act and refuses his advances. Watagashi finds and possesses Barry by turning him into a powerful monster in the process. The possessed Barry dispatches Gohan and kidnaps Pan. He seeks a final showdown with Gohan. Barry proves formidable. Gohan is nearly killed in the struggle. Videl and Pan express complete faith in Gohan's desire to protect them and call out for his aid. Gohan transforms into "Super Great Saiyaman" and knocks out Barry, which separates him from Watagashi in the process. The film becomes a hit and Cocoa blackmails Barry into keeping Gohan's secret with the knowledge that Barry was the monster that attacked the city. After capturing Watagashi again, Jaco goes back to the space ramen stand and the Watagashi escapes from him again.
In the field where Goku usually works, Chi-Chi talks to Gohan and Goten about Goku firing Ki Blasts to plow the field, saying him training and working is like killing two birds with one stone. Gohan asks why he was called, and Goten says that it is boring for Goku without anyone to fight, since Beerus and Whis are attending a Multiverse Supreme Kai-God of Destruction joint summit. Vegeta and Piccolo are also busy, so Gohan was called. Before Gohan asks if Goten could do it, Chi-Chi gets angry that she does not want Goten to train with Goku. Gohan exclaims he doesn't fight anymore, but calls on one man for the job: Great Saiyaman. Goku asks what Gohan is doing, but Gohan remains in his Great Saiyaman character and prepares to fight a sparring match with Goku. Goku accepts and charges, and him and Gohan exchange powerful blows that creates shockwaves around the area. The two begin to fight more seriously, and they both transform into Super Saiyans. The two continue their fight, but Chi-Chi stops them from fighting even longer because they are destroying the field. Later at home, Goku is doing push-ups while Goten is sitting on him, and Goku wishes to spar some more. Goten suggests that he asks Krillin, but despite Chi-Chi saying that he's busy with his police officer duties, Goku leaves, and Chi-Chi prepares to call Android 18 to warn her.
Meanwhile, Krillin and a couple of police officers are chasing a pair of criminals. Krillin uses his speed to appear in front of their car and cause them to crash, but the two parties engage in a shoot-off. Krillin protects one officer from the criminal's shot, but his arm is grazed. Goku suddenly appears and greets Krillin, and the two criminals prepare to shoot Goku because they think he's also an officer. Goku suddenly moves in front of them and bends their guns, allowing the officers to arrest the criminals; they also thank Goku for his cooperation. Krillin asks if Goku showed up to help him, but Goku wants to train. The two return to Krillin's house, and Krillin bandages his arm while Goku plays with Marron. Krillin says that him sparring with Goku wouldn't be satisfying, plus he quit martial arts and he just works as a cop. Goku just wants a training partner, plus he reminded Krillin that he fought when Frieza was revived. Android 18 shows up and picks up Marron, showing her disappointment in Krillin injured from a mere bullet, wondering why her husband is a spineless weakling while Marron exclaims she wants a strong father. Krillin is inspired by their words and agrees to spar with Goku, wanting to become stronger himself. While the two spar outside, they reminisce about training under Master Roshi as kids. They both agree to continue their training at Kame House.
When they arrive, Krillin asks Master Roshi to retrain him, giving him a lady magazine as an incentive. Master Roshi asks where Goku's greeting is, and Goku asks if he can train him too. Master Roshi says he'd be a boring opponent for Goku, who has gained power of the Gods. Krillin asks if Master Roshi could train him against Goku, saying it would also benefit his job and his well-being to become stronger. Goku is forced to put on a heavy turtle suit that he can barely walk in. Krillin bans Goku from flying and transforming into a Super Saiyan, saying he needs Goku to be at a disadvantage otherwise he would be killed. The two begin to fight, and despite Krillin's aggressive assault, he notices that the heavy suit Goku is wearing is not affecting his movements at all. Goku attacks back, and before he can land a heavy punch, Master Roshi calls off the spar. Goku then thanks Krillin for training with him.
Later that night while Goku is asleep, Krillin is outside training on his own. Master Roshi notices the doubt in Krillin, saying he has a confused will. The next morning, Master Roshi says their next training will be running an errand for him: picking up an herb called a Paradise Plant, that only grows in a deep forest on a remote island. It will be a race, and while Goku is excited, Master Roshi reveals the prize: his treasured photograph collection of girls. Goku and Krillin are uninterested in the prize, and Master Roshi reveals another prize: a training technique that can increase their strength. Goku and Krillin agree to pick up the herb, and they fly to the island. Goku and Krillin meet Fortuneteller Baba, who reveals Master Roshi asked her to observe their race with her crystal ball. Goku and Krillin prepare to race to find the Paradise Plant, and they enter an eerie forest.
Goku and Krillin notices something strange about the forest they're in, and a number of strange figures surround them: giant versions of Perfect Cell, Final Form Frieza, Vegeta, Nappa, the Ginyu Force, King Piccolo, and Super Buu. Krillin also notices Tambourine, his murderer and is trembled with fear.
Goku and Krillin are in the mysterious forest, surrounded by giant illusions of Frieza, Tambourine, Super Buu, Vegeta, Nappa, Cell, King Piccolo, and the Ginyu Force. Two more illusions also appear: Dabura and Raditz. Goku tries to calm the terrified Krillin down, assuring him they're nothing but illusions, as he casually throws a punch at the fake Vegeta. Goku is surprised to see the fake Vegeta catch his punch and knock him aside, as if he's completely solid. The two are aware the illusions are fake, as the real Vegeta wouldn't be there with them. Goku and Krillin prepare to fight the illusions. Krillin kicks aside the fake Nappa, and as the fake Tambourine prepares to attack him, Krillin has a flashback of Tambourine killing him. Krillin frantically dodges his attack and runs, but as the fake Frieza charges at him, he has a flashback of Frieza killing him. He is then confronted by the fake Super Buu, and has a flashback of Super Buu killing him. As Krillin runs into the fake Dabura, he has a flashback of Dabura turning him into stone. Goku kicks Dabura aside and tells Krillin he has to fight, too. The two are then confronted by an illusion of Bulma.
At Kame House, Fortuneteller Baba arrives, and Master Roshi thanks her for her help. Baba charges him ten million Zeni for her help, and simply says that he owes her. Baba then broadcasts the events in the forest through her Crystal Ball, and Android 18 shows up with Marron. 18 sees Krillin trembling with fear, and the two explain to her that he and Goku are in the Forest of Terror, where memories deep in the heart take form. Goku takes Krillin and tries to fly away from the illusions, suggesting that he and Krillin both use the Kamehameha to take out the illusions, which they successfully do as the illusions all disappear from the blast. Goku prepares to go back to finding the herb, but a completely frightened Krillin gives up and wants to leave, saying he can't call this fun like Goku can. Krillin yells out that he's scared. Krillin flies away and Goku chases after him, but they are trapped by the forest's trees that blocked the way out. The illusions also re-appear, even more giant than they were before. The fake King Piccolo grabs Goku and Krillin is knocked away by the fake Tambourine. Goku, turning into a Super Saiyan, beats down the illusions attacking him. Krillin crashes to the ground and wonders if Master Roshi intends to keep them there until they complete his errand. The illusions directly attack Krillin as 18 says watching this is sickening. Marron asks what's wrong with her dad, and 18 says he's fighting with himself.
Goku fights with the illusions by himself, constantly destroying them and they keep re-appearing. Goku then becomes a Super Saiyan 3 to destroy them all at once. As he does this, the fake Frieza, Cell, Nappa and Super Buu that are surrounding him grow to be even more giant. Goku realizes something and powers back down to base, beginning to meditate. The illusions then mysteriously disappear, and Goku says he was right. Master Roshi remarks that Goku has figured it out, and wonders if Krillin can do the same. Krillin is then frightened as he's surrounded by a large number of fake Friezas. Goku hears Krillin's scream but comments that if he tries to fly the illusions will re-appear, deciding to call the Nimbus. Krillin wonders why Master Roshi is making him fight these enemies, watching as they transform from Frieza to Tambourine to Cell to Nappa. Krillin resolves to surpass this as he uses Solar Flare on the attacking illusions, but as he does they grow more giant. Krillin then uses the Destructo Disc, and cuts one fake Nappa in half, but the illusions grow even more. Krillin realizes that the illusions are moving cause he is using energy.
Krillin sits down and meditates, and the illusions are frozen in place. Krillin remarks that calming his mind was key, as his fear was causing the illusions to grow gigantic and multiply into bigger numbers. Krillin concentrates his energy, defeating the illusions by attacking him as they are frozen in place. Master Roshi is proud of Krillin for figuring it out, but Baba unleashes one more trick: creating a fake Super Shenron that ambushes Goku and traps him. Goku tells Krillin that he can't go full power or he'll blow away Nimbus. Krillin prepares to save them both, powering up and attacking Super Shenron with his aura-clad fists. Goku thanks Krillin for saving him, and Nimbus drops him down to the ground and flies away. Krillin powers up and Goku becomes a Super Saiyan Blue, and the two fire Kamehamehas to destroy the Super Shenron illusion. Many herbs of the paradise plant then grow right in front of Goku and Krillin. As they are flying carrying the herbs, Krillin decides to start fighting again, for his sake and his family's sake, wanting to be as strong as Goku.
The two deliver the paradise plant to Master Roshi, and Krillin realizes 18 and Marron were watching him, and 18 is proud of her husband. Master Roshi says there is no real secret skill to boosting energy, and 18 wonders if he bribed them with a false promise, but Krillin corrects her saying it's about controlling the energy and mind. Goku agrees with him, saying that the illusions disappeared only because he and Krillin suppressed their energy. Master Roshi eats the paradise plant, which is for his vitality, exclaiming he can live on for another 1,000 years.
Krillin then has his head shaved bald by 18, and Marron says he looks cool. Goku shows up and wants to spar with Krillin, and Krillin accepts this, happily saying that going Super Saiyan is banned.

The "Future" Trunks Saga retcons the reason why Goku and Vegeta defused from Vegito during the Fusion Saga, despite the Potara fusion being permanent. While Goku originally guessed it was the acidic fumes inside Super Buu's body that defused himself and Vegeta it's actually revealed in this saga that the Potara fusion is permanent but only for the Supreme Kais, anyone else who undergoes a Potara fusion is only fused for an hour, meaning as soon as he entered Super Buu Vegito's time ran out and he simply defused like a regular fusion would.
It is also shown that using Super Saiyan Blue will drastically decrease the time to just a few minutes, very similar to Gogeta's time being fused being shortened when using Super Saiyan 4. However, the latter lasted longer.
This is the first Dragon Ball saga where the main antagonist has successfully completed their evil plan and lost at the same time; with the present day Zamasu gaining Goku's body and killing everyone in his timeline, Future Zamasu wishes for immortality and goes about enacting his plan in the future timeline, yet both eventually lost at the hands of Future Trunks as Fused Zamasu.
Also, this is the first saga where the protagonists could not save the world. Their last resort, Future Zen-Oh, had to erase the whole universe from existence so the villain could be defeated.
This is also the first saga to feature a villain created by Potara Fusion, in the form of Fused Zamasu. It is also the second saga to feature a fused villain created from two counterparts of the same person the first being Super 17 (the fusion of Hell Fighter 17 and Android 17) from the Super 17 Saga.
This is the second Dragon Ball saga where the main villain steals Goku's body, the first being when Captain Ginyu stole Goku's body during the Captain Ginyu Saga.
If one counts the Garlic Jr. Saga, this is the second saga to feature a villain with immortality. However it is the first manga and canon saga to feature an immortal villain as the Garlic Jr. Saga was filler.
This is the second Dragon Ball saga where Future Trunks defeats (and physically kills) the saga's main villains when he kills Fused Zamasu's physical body (however Fused Zamasu's bodiless essence survives due to his semi-immortality and is erased by Future Zen-Oh), the first being the Trunks Saga when he killed Mecha Frieza and King Cold. Interestingly, both sagas are named after Future Trunks.
This is the second saga, where the main villain is physically killed by a variation of the Spirit Bomb as Future Trunks uses the Spirit Bomb Sword to kill Fused Zamasu's body with the Final Hope Slash, the first being Kid Buu with the Super Spirit Bomb in the Kid Buu Saga.
Universe Survival Saga
The Universe Survival Saga is the fifth major saga of the Dragon Ball Super anime and the fourth major saga of the Dragon Ball Super manga under the name Tournament of Power Saga. The Tournament of Power planned by Zen-Oh begins, with multiple universes partaking—with each universe having a team of 10 fighters who battle alongside each other. The arc will feature continuous debuts of elites from each universe. However, this also proves to be the beginning of universal destruction. If a team were to lose, then the universe they come from will be destroyed immediately.
The first part of this story arc is referred to as the Universe Survival Gathering of Warriors Saga.
The Tournament of Power is Announced
The two Zen-Oh are playing a planet-destroying game at Zen-Oh's Palace, they are at exactly 101 wins and 101 losses, bored, they are striving that they can do something else.
Goku is selling his freshly-cropped vegetables to a trader, exclaiming that they are very popular so he is "excited" about earning money, so Chi-Chi will stop nagging him about working and he can focus on training. While driving away in a Capsule Corporation truck, Goku stumbles upon a person whose truck is stuck in the road. Goku helps him out, however, he was tricked by a band of robbers. They attempt to to attack Goku when the latter refuses giving his truck. Goku knocks one of the robbers out with a kick, and after catching the other two robbers' bullets, knocks them out. One of the robbers fire his last bullet at Goku, which scratches his arm, he then retaliates by flicking the robber from the left, sending him flying into a rock, knocking him out as well. Goku laughs, and, realizing he was also getting rusty, since the same thing happened to Krillin not long ago.
Goku calls Krillin and asks him to train, however, Krillin is busy fighting robbers himself. Goku then decides to call Whis for one training in exchange for a present. Goku decides to give them bean Daifuku, as they already ate regular Daifuku. After telling him to meet at Bulma's, Goku rushes home and puts on his Dogi, and Goten asking to come with him, however, Chi-Chi forbids it. While Chi-Chi is rambling on about studying, Goku and Goten sneak off, much to Chi-Chi's great anger. Goku and Goten pick up some bean Daifuku for Whis, and then head to Capsule Corp, where they meet Bulma. Bulma tells them she got a call from Chi-Chi, who told her to not let Goten leave with Goku. Bulma reveals her large belly, Goku guessed if she was eating a lot, Bulma yells him and corrects him by the fact that she is pregnant.
Goten congratulates Trunks on his new sibling, and asks which he would prefer between a brother and sister since Bulma wants it to be a secret. As Goku decides to give his bean Daifuku to Bulma, he is reminded by his son that it was supposed to be Whis'. Goten and Trunks later spar out of boredom. Goku finds Vegeta, and asks him to go training with him, only to decline because Bulma is giving birth soon. Whis arrives, and prepares to take the two Saiyans to Beerus' planet, Vegeta refuses however, wanting to be with his wife for his child. Whis and Goku then head off, and they meet Beerus at his planet. After eating the Daifuku, Goku and Whis start training.
In the midst of training, Goku, who transforms into a Super Saiyan to deflect a ki blast from Whis,. As Beerus points out that Goku is rusty, and Goku had not fought anyone strong in a while, this reminded Goku of something, and asks about Zen-Oh's Universal Martial Arts Tournament. Beerus tries to convince Goku to forget about that idea and not get too involved with Zen-Oh, Whis agrees. Goku reveals the button Zen-Oh gave him as two sides: one that sends him to Zen-Oh and the opposite that sends the Zen-Oh to the exact area. fearing for his universe, and his life, and to avoid Zen-Oh remembering it, Beerus attempts to destroy Goku, berating him for his "leniency", and Goku's naïve nature would get them in trouble. As he is about to destroy him for the consequences it will cause, Goku tricks the God of Destruction by throwing the button in the air to make Beerus look, then pressed the button while the two are distracted, sending him to Zen-Oh's palace, fooling the two deities, with Beerus cursing at himself.
Goku is greeted by the Great Priest, who takes him to see Zen-Oh. Goku asks Zen-Oh about the tournament, and the present Zen-Oh, remembers, that he forgot. Future Zen-Oh asks what a tournament is, and Zen-Oh, having witnessed the Universe 6 and 7 Tournament, tells describes to him that a tournament "is fun", much to his excitement. Great Priest later states that once they figure out the tournament details, he will contact the Supreme Kais of each universe. Goku agrees and heads back, only to be gutted by Beerus for ignoring his warnings. Later, Whis takes the group to the Sacred World of the Kais, and the three head there and meet Supreme Kai, Kibito, and Old Kai, who ask them if there are no crisis' going on. The Grand Priest soon appears and announces the details for the tournament: on a specified date and time, 10 warriors from each universe will fight in the Tournament of Power.
The Grand Priest has arrived to the Sacred World of the Kais in Universe 7, in order to relay the details of the Tournament of Power to Goku, Beerus, Whis, Supreme Kai, Kibito, and Old Kai. After stating when the tournament will take place, Great Priest announces that the tournament will be held in the World of Void, a world with no time or space, so that all fighters can use the full extent of their powers freely. Grand Priest also announces that he has collected the Super Dragon Balls for the tournament, and that Champa has offered him the three that he already had. Beerus curses Champa under his breath for secretly collecting them again. Supreme Kai asks what the victorious universe will win, only for the Great Priest to claim that "nothing" would be won. Great Priest also announces an ultimatum for all participants, though he regrets announcing it so soon, he feels like he should announce it as Goku is Zen-Oh's friend: Zen-Oh will instantly destroy any universe defeated in the tournament.
The Universe 7 group proceed to panic upon hearing this. Grand Priest also announces a personal request to Goku from Zen-Oh: as Future Zen-Oh does not know what a tournament is, there will be an exhibition match called the Zen Exhibition Match, where 3 fighters from Universe 7 will fight against 3 fighters from Universe 9, and the two Zen-Oh will be personally watching. Grand Priest tells Goku to find 2 more fighters to team up with in the next hour, and to head to Zen-Oh's Palace before leaving. Beerus berates Goku again, asking him just what he has done to every universe. Supreme Kai comments that should Universe 7 lose and be destroyed, he will be too ashamed to face all living beings. Goku offers to personally ask Zen-Oh to not destroy any universes, Whis advises against this however, saying that should Zen-Oh or Grand Priest get annoyed at Goku's pestering, he would be destroyed on the spot. Elder Kai later reminds him to find 2 partners for the match, and 9 more partners for the tournament. Beerus yells at Goku to take responsibility and go find 2 more people to fight with him.
Goku goes to Earth and asks Vegeta to come with him and fight, however, Vegeta refuses because Bulma is giving birth soon. Goten and Trunks, greeting Goku later. Vegeta suggests that Goku should ask his son, after thinking that he was referring to Goten, Goku remembers his other son, Gohan, thanking Vegeta. Goku meets Gohan at his house and tells him about the tournament. Gohan is hesitant at first, later, Goku tells him about the extreme stipulation about the losing universes being destroyed, also wanting Gohan to keep it a secret to himself, much to his awe. Gohan berates his father about the consequences that will happen if the people learn about the tournament. Gohan and Goku agree to keep this a secret from everyone else. Videl appears and asks them about their whispering, Goku claims that Gohan refused to participate in a tournament when he asked him. Videl suggests that Gohan helps his father. Pan appears, flying into her mother's arms, happy. Gohan, proudly watching, decides to join his father, vowing that he is not willing to lose everything that he loves. Mr. Satan appears with Buu and Bee. Mr. Satan greets Goku. Goku flies past him and goes to Buu, also asking him to join.
Goku takes Gohan, and Buu (with Mr. Satan) back to the Sacred World of the Kais, after a few questions, Beerus secretly asks Goku if they know about the stipulation, Goku answering that he only told Gohan and they agreed to keep it a secret to avoid panic; Beerus agreeing as well. Supreme Kai takes the entire group and gets them to Zen-Oh's Palace. While there, Beerus warns the group to avoid saying or doing anything careless. While they walk to the main altar, the group meets the Universe 9 group: the Supreme Kai Roh, the God of Destruction Sidra, his angel Mojito, and the 3 fighters representing them: the Trio De Dangers: Bergamo, Basil and Lavender.
Zen Exhibition Match
The Grand Priest gathers both groups and transports them to the World of Void, where he has prepared a World Martial Arts Tournament-style ring with spectator seats. The Grand Priest then calls for every god in the multiverse to appear, and every single God of Destruction, Angel, and Supreme Kai from each universe all gather to spectate the match. As Goku loudly greets Champa, the Grand Priest orders Goku to be silent. Grand Priest explains the Future Zen-Oh's request to watch a tournament match as he has never seen one before, and he and Zen-Oh appear to spectate. Goku flies to and greets them, calling them "Zen-Chans" (Champa is flustered at Goku calling them "Zen-chan"). An embarrassed Beerus immediately grabs and throws Goku back to the seats, apologizing to the supreme god. The other disgruntled Gods speculate on how vulgar and impudent Universe 7 is acting. Grand Priest, overhearing them, announces that the Tournament of Power was Goku's idea (Zen-Oh's initially, but he forgot about it until Goku reminded him). Goku thanking the omni-kings for letting them fight first, with them thanking him back.
Grand Priest explains the rules for the fights: there will be one-on-one matches in order, there is no time limit, and the winner will be chosen if his opponent surrenders or is unable to continue fighting. Rou greedily asks Grand Priest if there are any prizes, and the Grand Priest answering the purpose of this match is solely to provide anticipation for the tournament, and to show Future Zen-Oh what a tournament is. Sidra nervously asks if they will be destroyed on the spot if Zen-Oh considers the fighters to be boring, and Grand Priest answers about its possibility, as all is as Zen-Oh wills it. The Great Priest calls for the two beginning fighters to go to the stage, Basil, the youngest, goes first. Just like they decided, Goku decides that the first fighter will be Buu, but the group notice that Buu fell asleep during all of the talking. Beerus quickly orders Mr. Satan to wake him up, Mr. Satan wakes Buu with a chocolate bar, promising more if he goes to play with Basil. Buu agrees and heads to the ring. With both fighters present, Grand Priest announces the match to begin.
Basil quickly goes on the offensive and kicks Buu around, showing that his fighting style revolves around using his legs in a kickboxing-like method. The two Zen-Oh are impressed with Basil's speed. As Buu lays on the ground motionless, Basil comments about what a real buffoon he is, and Supreme Kai and Beerus are worried as Rou arrogantly smirks. Lying on the ground, Buu grins. Basil quickly gains the upper hand and beats down Buu, who is not taking the fight seriously and thinks of it as a game. Goku goads Basil into showing his full power to get Buu's attention, which leads to Basil using his ultimate attack. As the Supreme Kai of Universe 9 claims victory, Buu emerges with a hole in his stomach, but he is otherwise unmoved. Basil and the Supreme Kai of Universe 9 are awed to see this. This had Mr. Satan injured during the attack, falling unconscious, Seeing his best friend's suffering, Buu becomes very enraged to the point where he effortlessly beats Basil and knocks him out of the ring. However, since neither Zen-Oh is satisfied with the fight, Basil is allowed to get back into the ring. The Supreme Kai from Universe 9 gives Basil a drug that makes him far more powerful. Although Beerus demands that Basil is disqualified for obvious cheating, Zen-Oh ignores this whatsoever. The Great Priest announces that the rules will be improvised as the tournament goes along. Basil overpowers Buu and seemingly beats him, which causes the Supreme Kai to prematurely gloat about the "superiority" of Universe 9. However, an enraged Buu emerges unscathed and launches a Majin Kamehameha at Basil. This inflicted extreme damage to him, although, Basil appears to be unscathed, as he approaches toward Buu, his body cramps and collapses due to the side effects of the power-up drug he dosed, returning to normal in charred rags afterwards, the Grand Priest clinches Universe 7 the victory. As the Universe 9 team laments Basil's loss, Lavender commenting that if he had been allowed to kill his opponent, then he would have won. Gohan volunteers to fight next against Lavender, who is allowed to kill to his heart's content.
The next match of the Zen Exhibition Match is Gohan of Universe 7 against Lavender of Universe 9, later, as Lavender silently chuckles to himself, Gohan suggests to himself that he must see how Lavender fights with his eyes since his ki cannot be sensed, with Goku advising him from afar. Later, The Great Priest commences the match to begin.
Immediately, Gohan attacks and he and Lavender exchange a number of blows. When Gohan throws a punch, Lavender dodges it and wraps himself around Gohan's arm. Lavender then sprays a mist of poison gas in Gohan's face, blinding him. Lavender then sprays the same gas on his fists and uses them to attack Gohan, further immobilizing him. Whis exclaims that Lavender is using a very powerful poison. While Lavender is overwhelming Gohan, Rou boasts about Lavender's capabilities. Mr. Satan yells out that this is cheating, Goku reminding him that in this tournament, anything goes. Despite Rou's boasting, Shin pulls out a bag of Senzu Beans, attempting to imitate what Universe 9 did previously. However, Gohan refuses a Senzu Bean offer, not wanting anyone to interfere in this battle, wanting to use only his power. Goku agrees with him, claiming that against an opponent whom Gohan cannot see or sense, this is the perfect training for him to regain his fighting sense.
Ignoring Lavender's boasting, Gohan quietly concentrates to hear and feel Lavender's movements. When Lavender tries to attack from behind, Gohan blocks his attack the instant he feels Lavender's leg connecting on his head. Meanwhile, the two Zen-Oh are impressed and gleefully watch. Thinking it was a fluke, Lavender tries attacking again, Gohan blocks every single hit and counterattacks. Bergamo points out to a surprised Rou that since Gohan lost his sense of vision, his other senses have been heightened, also commenting that Gohan is a worthy opponent. After more trial-and-error, as Lavender flies into the air, Gohan can no longer hear his footsteps, he said. Lavender then fires poisonous Ki blasts at Gohan, whom he has trouble defending himself. Goku exclaims that this could be bad for Gohan, nonetheless, is confident that his son will be able to overcome things the harder they get. When Lavender prepares to finish Gohan off, Gohan laments about not able to handle this match on his own, transforming into a Super Saiyan.
The two Zen-Oh are amazed about Gohan's shining golden form, and Grand Priest informs them that he is a Super Saiyan. Toppo realizes that Universe 7 has fighters that can willfully alter their power level. Lavender arrogantly claims that despite Gohan's power increase, he should still be helpless in sensing his attacks, and again, Gohan shrugs the claim off. Lavender attacks, Gohan deflects a ki barrage from him, and flies straight towards Lavender and relentlessly assaults him, much to his confusion. Whis and Shin praise Gohan for wisely using his Super Saiyan powers like an active radar, however, the form could be a double-edged sword, according to Whis. As Gohan tries to finish off Lavender, he collapses and reverts to his base form. Whis and Beerus comment that due to becoming a Super Saiyan, the poison spreading in Gohan's body is accelerating. Lavender takes this opportunity to assault a helpless Gohan and spraying even more poison on him. Despite his disadvantage, Gohan transforma a Super Saiyan again and the two fight a heated battle, also entering a beam struggle with Lavender's poisonous energy wave and Gohan's Kamehameha. However, Gohan is overwhelmed due to gradually getting weaker from the poison, which has begun spreading throughout his entire body. Lavender sprays more poison gases, but Gohan simply penetrates, attacking Lavender and grabbing him with a Full-Nelson. Gohan then slams himself and Lavender to the ring below, causing an explosion.
When Lavender is knocked out, Gohan momentarily stands up, stating his victory, and falls down himself unconscious. Grand Priest exclaims that the match is a tie due to both fighters being unable to continue. Goku feeds his son a Senzu Bean, proud of his performance that also got him excited, while Gohan tells his father about himself being still weak. Grand Priest announces to all of the spectators his rankings of the universes, giving Universe 7 an average of 3.18, which is second from the bottom. Whis then asked which universe ranked below them, and it turned out to be Universe 9 with an average of 1.86. Grand Priest reveals the stipulation of the losing universes to be destroyed in front of publicity. While each universe discusses this, Shin asks Grand Priest if every universe which enters will be destroyed if they lose which the Grand Priest confirms. Grand Priest nonchalantly informs him that Universes 1 & 12, along with 5 & 8, are exempt from entering as their average is over 7. Whis simplifies his words, also nonchalantly explaining that every other universe would have been erased because of their low development, but will be spared if they win in the Tournament of Power. Mr. Satan falls in despair and faints when he realizes their fate if they lose in the tournament.
Beerus and Shin argue about their own problems. As Old Kai asks what will happen to the gods, the Great Priest answers that they will also be erased with their universe, except for the angels, much to the nonangel gods' flustering. Preparing to announce the third match, Grand Priest repairs the ring. The final fight between Goku and Bergamo is about to begin.
The third match of the Zen Exhibition Match between Goku and Bergamo is about to begin. The gods of each universe all discuss their potential fates if they are defeated in the Tournament of Power. Goku suggests that he and Bergamo go all-out since their fight will not have any universes destroyed. Bergamo shuts Goku up, while ridiculing him to the universe gods. Bergamo points out that Zen-Oh gave his Universe 9 the lowest mortal level, but he points to Goku, accusing the Saiyan of having a much lower mortal level because he (although Zen-Oh suggested it before created it back at the previous tournament) created the idea of the Tournament of Power, and if was not, then every universe could have lived in peace. Bergamo takes it upon himself to crush Goku, calling him the enemy of every universe. Bergamo then bows down to Zen-Oh, politely asking him to rescind his rule of erasing the defeated universes once he has defeated Goku, impressing the Universe 9 gods of his smooth talking, and an outraged Beerus and Whis realize that Bergamo was trying to name Goku the villain so that every universe would consider him an enemy; Whis also points out the animosity towards Goku is increasing. While the gods agree with Bergamo, Goku points out that he does not care about being the villain to every universe, saying that as long as he is on the edge, he can fight to the fullest, being his typical Saiyan trait, because the other universes (except Universe 6) do not know anything of Saiyans and their traits.
Zen-Oh agrees with Bergamo's proposal, and the rule is set: if Universe 9 wins, the rule of erasing every defeated universe will be scrapped altogether. However, Grand Priest warns Goku that if he holds back because refuses to be erased, Zen-Oh will immediately destroy every universe. Goku agrees and planned to go full force, he said. Later, While Champa boos Goku, the Supreme Kais of different universes ask him who Goku is, wondering why he acts so casually in front of Zen-Oh. Champa answers that Goku's limit seemed unfathomable, also pointing out Universes 1, 5, 8 and 12's nonchalant attitudes due to being exempt from the Tournament because of their high mortal levels.
The match finally begins. Goku and Bergamo start exchanging blows, feeling each other out. Bergamo then purposefully leaves himself defenseless, taunting Goku to hit him so he can show him why they call him "Bergamo the Crusher". Goku obliges, and lands a number of blows on him. Bergamo then suddenly glows and grows larger and stronger, knocking Goku back with a punch. Goku keeps attacking him, and Bergamo keeps growing, taunting him to keep attacking some more. Gohan advises Goku to be careful, pointing out that Bergamo is using his power against him. Rou of Universe 9 loudly and boastfully exclaims Bergamo's ability: the more he is hit, the more he grows and the stronger he becomes, claiming his strength as "truly limitless".Goku then becomes a Super Saiyan. Goku comes up with a strategy, as Bergamo grows bigger and bigger the more power he absorbs, he is left wide open, allowing Goku to continuously land combos on him, not to mention that Goku is too small and fast for him to catch, as Bergamo steals more of his power. Bergamo eventually becomes gigantic in size, and Goku once again uses his speed to constantly land hits on him. While Bergamo grows bigger and bigger, Goku solemnly smiles.
Goku taunts Bergamo, exclaiming that the bigger he grows, the more blind spots he gains. Bergamo soon grows so large that the ring under him is beginning to crack from his steps. Goku taunts if he can still get stronger, Bergamo tries to hit him, to no avail, Goku backflips into midair, then transforms into Super Saiyan Blue. The gods (except the present Zen-Oh and the Grand Priest) are stricken with awe about this display of power, feeling the form's pressure, Zen-Oh informs Future Zen-Oh (who was impressed at Goku's display) of the Super Saiyan Blue form. Goku "offers" Bergamo more power, using the Kaio-ken. Bergamo also charges his absorbed energy up while Goku charges a 10x God Kamehameha. Bergamo uses his special attack, Wolfgang Penetrator, clashing with Goku's Kamehameha. Goku uses his full power to push the attack back and hit Bergamo, defeating him instead of powering him up further. Grand Priest announces Universe 7 as the victors of the Zen Exhibition Match.
Goku informs Zen-Oh about him not holding back, much to their happiness and impression with his match. While Basil and Lavender help their brother up, Bergamo promises Goku that every universe will come after him. Goku fearlessly taunts to every god of universes to come at him with all their strongest warriors, exclaiming that he will beat them all, much to all their chagrin and annoyance. While Great Priest confirms the Zen Exhibition Match a success, he announces the rules for the Tournament of Power: it will be a survival match and victory is gained by knocking opponents off of the ring. The use of weapons and killing opponents are prohibited in the tournament and using Flight outside the ring is nullified. Also, the time limit for the match will be 100 Taks, which is about 48 minutes on Earth, the Great Priest further announces that since the ring will also be huge, the tournament will have all 80 participants from the 8 universes participating all in the ring at once, and the universe with the most survivors will win; also if there is a single survivor, that universe will win. The Universe 7 group discuss that power alone cannot be enough and tactics and teamwork will be important; teamwork not being Goku's forte. Goku confidently comments that he should be fine, since he has Gohan at his side.
Toppo suddenly jumps to the ring and confronts Goku, wanting to talk to him. He then introduces himself as the leader of the Pride Troopers of Universe 11, taking off his cloak and challenges Goku to a fight, an excited Goku claimed that he was never satistfied with Bergamo. Toppo claims Goku as evil (which is ironic to the fact that Goku's race, the Saiyans, are downright evil), declaring that his fists will bring ruin upon all evil. After obtaining Zen-Oh blessing to proceed, Goku and Toppo begin their battle. Toppo quickly gains the upper hand and dislocates Goku's shoulder. Goku responds by attacking with a flurry of blows, but Toppo manages to grab Goku in a powerful bear hug. He begins squeezing the life out of Goku, which forces Goku to turn Super Saiyan Blue to escape. He and the Pride Trooper undergo an extreme battle, and damages Toppo's suit with a point-blank God Kamehameha, much to his anger, later, Goku (who used the Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-Ken technique, also claiming what he would look like if his limit had passed) and Toppo begin to power up to extreme heights. However, the Great Priest brings an end to the match on the grounds that one of them will likely end up dead at the rate they are going. As Toppo leaves, he reveals to Goku that Universe 11 has a warrior even stronger than him named Jiren. The Great Priest explains that he will begin creating the arena for the Tournament of Power, which will be completed in 40 Earth hours. Back at the Sacred World of the Kais, Beerus and Goku get into an argument over Goku's laid-back attitude, which Whis breaks up. The group agrees to convene at the Capsule Corporation to discuss their strategy.
At Capsule Corporation, Chichi is preparing a feast for the new baby when Goku, Gohan, Hercule, Majin Buu, Beerus, Whis, Shin, and Elder Kai arrive. Chichi offers the food to them since the baby hasn't been born yet, and Goku and Beerus happily accept. Bulma is exercising in the gravity room with Pilaf, Shu, and Mai, and she apologizes to Vegeta, who is watching them close by. He says she is making him rusty but worries if she is able to move so much. Trunks says Mai said exercise will ensure a healthy birth and Goten asks Vegeta if he is excited about the baby. Turning to walk away, Vegeta retorts he is only staying because Bulma told him to and decides to go train somewhere close, and he reminds Trunks that he has to move the baby's bed. Trunks asks Goten to help him and they run off, and Vegeta takes his leave and thinks about a name that is worthy of Saiyan royalty.
As everyone eats, Goku states his excitement about fighting strong opponents and repeats his assertion to Beerus, who reminds him to be serious, that they only need to win. Shin goes about which participants of Universe 7 will be entering. Gohan asks how many planets are there with powerful life forms in the universe and Shin explains that since the loss of Planet Sadla, Planet Vegeta and Planet Namek, there are 28 planets. However, Beerus suggests they stick with warriors in Earth due to not knowing how strong people from other planets are and with those already known on Earth, they have a 12.5% of winning. Goku and Gohan start thinking of their friends and Goku wants Monaka but Beerus lies that he is unwell. They consider Krillin, however, Mr. Satan reminds them Krillin gave up martial arts a long time ago. Goku and Gohan have a mind battle between Krillin and Basil, and it appears that Krillin's Destructo Disc and Solar Flare have little effect on Basil. This worries Gohan, but Goku concludes Krillin can hold his own because he has resumed training. Shin suggests Trunks and Goten, but Goku declines, because their rivalry might be a issue. Gohan suggests Master Roshi, because, as he stated, of being experienced and having tricky techniques at his disposal, Mr. Satan suggests Android 18, which Goku excitedly agrees, Gohan also reminds him that there is also her brother, Android 17, as he could potentially enter. Shin questions them, because the siblings are androids, Goku tells him that both androids used to be just ordinary humans, and were modified to be "super-humans". Goku decides to get Senzu Beans for the tournament, however, Whis tells him that Senzu Beans are forbidden in the tournament. With one member left, they ask Vegeta, who is still thinking of a baby name. Goku informs him of the battle with Toppo and of 80 fighters fighting simultaneously. Although Vegeta is intrigued of the battle royal, he refused due to not knowing when the baby will be born and, suspicious, asks why Goku wants him to participate so badly. Beerus, desperate, orders him to participate. Vegeta informs him that he will not enter unless they should convince Bulma. With little choice, Whis decides to intervene.
Chichi and Bulma are discussing her pregnant belly when Whis comes in and uses his Time Warping abilities to bring out the baby from inside her, impressing and surprising everyone. Whis announces to Vegeta that he can now participate. As Bulma coos to the baby, now revealed to be a girl, Vegeta instantly comes to love his daughter. Everyone later gathers to properly meet the baby and hold her and remark how she looks nothing like Vegeta, who stands nearby, listening. The baby smiles at being held and cooed by her grandparents and Goku, however, she cries when Mr. Satan makes a face at her, which angers Vegeta into turning Super Saiyan Blue. Yamcha shows up to visit and holds the baby but she cries, angering Vegeta again. Trunks and Goten finish putting the bed down when Gohan informs Trunks that he is now a big brother. Goten states that a brother would mean that Trunks gets to train with him, and a sister would be cute. Trunks, not interested in having a sister, prefers a brother so he can train. Trunks meets the baby, and is disappointed about it being a girl, and is reluctant to hold her, but later gives in when Bulma tells him he needs to protect his sister. Seeing Vegeta wants to hold the baby, Bulma requests Trunks to ask him to hold the baby. After a silent moment, Vegeta asks Trunks to give him the baby and he holds her. When asked what her name is, Vegeta is about to suggest the Saiyan name Eschalot unfortunately for him, Bulma announces she has decided to give her the name Bulla. Everyone was adored by the name, calling it beautiful, but Vegeta frantically yells he needs to give his daughter a name worthy of a Saiyan. Goku decides to start recruiting members for the team and informs Gohan that he will be visiting Krillin first. When Goku leaves, Yamcha, who overheard the conversation, confronts Gohan and he thinks he will be recruited as well, and heads home to wait for Goku, while Vegeta finally settles to the name of Bulla, much to the baby's delight.
Goku and Gohan are flying in the air, heading to meet Krillin. Krillin has just defeated a burglar and saved the clerk of the store, who thanks Krillin. Krillin just got through with catching another criminal when Goku and Gohan meet up with him. They return to Krillin's house and tell him about the Tournament of Power and the rules. Back at their home, after a brief discussion about the tournament, Android 18 tells Krillin to enter, otherwise all of his exercise equipment would all have been used for nothing. Goku also asks 18 to participate, and 18 immediately declines, as she has to look after Marron, not to mention that, she never works for anyone unless a prize is involved. Goku suggests that she can leave Marron with Bulma, telling Marron that Bulma's house has an aquarium and amusement park, to her excitement. 18 suspiciously asks Goku about why he is pushing her to participate, if this tournament is for fun. Goku nervously agrees, quietly discussing with Gohan about keeping the extreme tournament outcome a secret. 18 is suspicious about how the two are acting. Goku comes up with a lie, claiming that he forgot to mention that the tournament winners gain 10 million Zeni. 18 is unimpressed, as she would (selfishly and greedily) only have 1 million for herself after dividing the prize for the entire team. Goku "corrects" her by stating that each participant would gain "10 million zeni". 18 shows more interest, but still suspicious if Goku is lying or not. 18 then accepts Goku's offer and joins the team. Krillin (also suspicious) reminds Goku that he better not be inviting him just to invite 18. Krillin also decides to enter, but Gohan immediately interrupts, asking Krillin for a request.
Gohan asks Krillin to spar with him, and he agrees, and they choose to spar on top of two rock formations to simulate the tournament's ring-out rule. Gohan requests Krillin to show him his power to gain a better understanding, so that he can come up with a plan for the tournament. Gohan thinks to himself about his image simulation battle of Krillin vs. Basil, and is worried that Krillin would not be able to stand a chance in the tournament. He wishes to fight Krillin himself so he can understand why Goku insists on recruiting him. Android 18 is suspicious about the whole thing, noting Gohan's eyes to be far too serious for a simple tournament. Goku claims that Gohan wanted the prize money seriously, after a couple of more suspicious talks from her, Goku, trying to avoid 18's suspicions, directs her attention back to the match.
Gohan is distracted by Marron's cheering, and Krillin immediately attacks. After Gohan blocks his attacks, Gohan knocks Krillin back, who immediately flies in front of the sun and uses his new technique, Solar Flare x100, and Gohan is still blinded despite having his eyes closed. Goku wonders if it is a new technique, and 18 hands him some sunglasses. While Gohan is blind and also unable to sense Krillin's ki, Krillin attacks him and knocks him into the water, forcing Gohan to stop himself from falling in. Krillin remarks that Gohan has lost due to being knocked out of bounds and being forced to use Flight.
Gohan is impressed by Krillin's performance and his new technique. 18 is about to go home when an excited Goku wants to fight Krillin himself. Krillin ensures Gohan that they can get stronger together, and with Krillin's skill and experience with Gohan's power, their victory is ensured. Gohan is ashamed of his own inexperience. Goku challenges Krillin, and the two relocate to Satan City on top of a skyscraper with a helicopter landing pad. Gohan reminds Goku that the tournament will start soon, and he would forced to step in if he feels that Goku is going too far. A18 protests that Krillin is tired from the last match and that with his Solar Flare x100 being for surprise only, he cannot repeatedly use it. The excited Krillin stops her, wanting to fight right now. While Krillin and Goku stare at each other, Krillin recalls his match with Goku in the 22nd World Martial Arts Tournament many years ago. Once a rainstorm comes, and 18 hands her daughter an umbrella while the two begin to fight.
Krillin fires a number of Destructo Discs at Goku, who dodges them and as he attacks, Krillin prepares to use the Solar Flare technique. While Goku braces himself, Krillin reveals to have faked the attack and fires energy blasts at Goku, also controlling his Destructo Discs to attack him from different angles. Goku barely dodges the attacks and destroys the discs with his own blasts, and Krillin charges and fires another blast, intending to push Goku off of the building. Goku cancels out the blast and goes Super Saiyan, and Krillin takes the time to hide behind the debris and masks his ki. Goku finds him and exposes him, and Krillin smirks as the floor under Goku slices apart, and Goku barely saves himself from falling. Krillin tells him he launched a fourth Destructo Disc to slice the floor while Goku was distracted with the three attacking him. Goku is impressed, while Android 18 and Gohan talk about needing a plan for the tournament. Goku reverts from his Super Saiyan form, and prepares Krillin for phase two of the fight, he then transforms into Super Saiyan Blue, and Krillin feels the intense pressure but remains strong. 18 remarks that there's nothing he can do about the huge power difference. Krillin says that this is fun, and he and Goku each charge a Kamehameha. The two energy blasts collide, and Krillin is being pushed back from Goku's bigger beam. Krillin is saved by 18, who forces Goku to direct the beam into the sky.
18 checks on Krillin, who asks why she interfered. She reminds Krillin about the tournament being a battle royal, and announces to Goku that it won't always be a one-on-one, and they must be prepared to be at a handicap, also telling Krillin to fight together if he can't alone. The two prepare to fight Goku, also telling Gohan to join if he wants. Goku turns back to base and says its enough, saying there's a lot he can learn from them about the tournament, also telling Gohan to learn, too. Goku remembers about Android 17 and asks 18 if she knows where he is. She says that the last time they talked on the phone, he told her he works at a wildlife reserve, but he didn't tell her where. Krillin suggests that Goku ask Dende where he is. Goku agrees and prepares to head out. Android 17 is seen watching the sky on a cliff.
While Goku and Gohan are flying, Gohan is about to go meet Piccolo, who Goku says would quickly agree to participating in the Tournament of Power, being a fighter himself. Goku is about to head to meet Dende, but notices an explosion in a nearby city. He uses Instant Transmission to sense whoever's ki is there, which turns out to be Majin Buu.
Meanwhile, on the Sacred World of the Kai planet in Universe 11, Kai summons the Supreme Kais of every other universe in a conference call fashion. Kai requests that the other Kais refrain from mentioning the universe destruction stipulation to their inhabitants. Gowasu, the Supreme Kai of Universe 10, agrees, but asks why Shin, the Supreme Kai of Universe 7, is not present. Kai answers that he has not invited Shin, due to the Tournament of Power being Universe 7's idea in the first place. Rou, the Supreme Kai of Universe 9, yells that this is a waste of time and Kai reminds him that they are meeting to discuss their situation. Rou says he is too busy gathering warriors and signs off. Peru and Ea, the Supreme Kais of Universe 2 and 3 respectively, begin to argue about their universes' intellectual levels and how Peru thinks it is irrelevant in the Tournament of "Power". They are both silenced by Kai, and Kuru, the Supreme Kai of Universe 4, slander them for spouting out their egos. Kai advises that all of the Supreme Kais join together to request Zen-Oh to reconsider the universe destruction rule to give them a chance to raise their universes' mortal levels. The Kais agree but all realize that Zen-Oh has made his decision and if he is displeased, it would mean erasure on the spot. All of the Kais sign off as they are all busy gathering warriors, and Kai settles on the idea that his universe will have to win, as he believes it is home to the strongest warriors.
Back on Earth, Goku finds out Mr. Satan is helping Buu train. Due to constantly training since the Zen Exhibition Match, Buu has lost weight and has gotten much slimmer in appearance. Buu tells Goku that he had fun "playing with the doggie guy" (referring to his match with Basil) and is excited about fighting more strong guys in the tournament. Mr. Satan asks if Goku wants to spar with Buu, and Goku eagerly accepts. Mr. Satan says the two will be using the tournament rules, and whoever touches the ground first will be the loser. Goku and Buu start fighting an even match, and Goku comments that Buu has gotten much stronger and faster. Buu is excited about eliminating everyone in the tournament, and Mr. Satan and Goku remind him that killing is against the rules; he must knock them out of the ring. Buu continues the fight by assaulting Goku with an endless barrage of ki Blasts, and while Goku keeps deflecting them, letting his guard down, Buu attacks him and knocks him to the ground, winning the match. Goku compliments Buu's strategy and is very impressed, and Mr. Satan reminds Goku not to get knocked out of bounds so easily in the actual tournament. Goku tells Mr. Satan he successfully recruited Krillin and Android 18, and goes to find Android 17. When Goku flies off, while Mr. Satan exclaims that there is nothing he can do now but wait.
Meanwhile, back in Universe 11, Toppo appears and talks with the General of the Pride Troopers: Kahseral, who asks him what happened at the Zen Exhibition Match. They are called to fight an attacking monster on the Planet Daldon, and they ride a ship to head there. In Universe 6, Champa calls for a meeting with the Gods of Destruction after finding out about the Supreme Kais' meeting. Mosco, the God of Destruction of Universe 3, asks why Champa has not invited Beerus. Quitela of Universe 4 says they should leave Beerus out due to his universe being responsible for the tournament. Vados argues that everyone should be in Goku's debt because if he didn't suggest having the Tournament of Power, the lower level universes would have already been erased, and this way they have a chance for survival. Sidra of Universe 9 and Rumoosh of Universe 10 show ill will towards Goku and his chummy attitude towards Zen-Oh. Helles of Universe 2 calls Goku beautiful. Belmod of Universe 11 is confident that Universe 7 will be unable to stand up against his fighters.
On planet Daldon, Aragney and Drakiyon are running amok. Dyspo of the Pride Troopers shows up and fights Aragney head-on, but is trapped in its tentacles. Before he is eaten, he is saved by Toppo and Kahseral. United with his teammates, Dispo poses with Toppo and Kahseral, who launch a combined attack on Aragney and defeats it. Toppo throws Drakiyon into Arageny's mouth, destroying them. On the ship, Toppo tells his team about the Tournament of Power. They agree on recruiting Pride Trooper members from other planets, including Jiren, who is currently meditating.
Goku arrives to The Lookout to ask Dende where Android 17 is. When Dende says that 17 is located on an island to the south, he offers to take Goku there. Dende calls for the Power Pole to retract and uses a technique to make the entire Lookout move, saying that he can take Goku to the island where 17 is this way. Goku asks if 17 is still plotting to kill him, and Dende says he is a new person compared to his former self and he is now working hard, providing for his family. Dende also says that 17 has gotten much stronger compared to back then. Dende then brings up a young boy from a small village having immense martial arts talent, but he is still very young. Goku is impressed but says he can't recruit him for the Tournament of Power. Dende suggests that Goku teaches the boy how to use his power once he gets older, and Goku says he's no good at that. Dende surprises Goku by saying this boy is the reincarnation of the evil Buu, and Goku remembers the wish he made before obliterating Buu. Dende says that in order to fulfill his promise of meeting him one day, Goku must prevail in the Tournament of Power so Universe 7 doesn't get erased.
The Lookout arrives directly above the island where 17 is, and Goku thanks Dende and flies down there. Goku says it'll be hard to find 17 on such a large island since he can't sense his ki, and notices an explosion nearby. Goku comes across 17 battling a large group of poachers, and their Guns and Rocket Launchers have no effect on the Android. Goku meets 17, and 17 does not recognize him. Goku introduces himself, and 17 says he recognizes his voice (due to his programming). A battalion of more poachers arrive, and 17 asks for Goku's help in detaining them, also telling him not to hurt the animals and not to kill the poachers. Goku and 17 easily destroy the poachers' vehicles, forcing them to retreat.
Goku asks what the poachers are after, and 17 leads him to a rare Minotaur he is protecting, telling him its horns are valuable and can be sold for a fortune. The Minotaur notices them and attacks, and before Goku can attack back, 17 tells him to stop and just fly, explaining that the Minotaurus gained a distrust in humans due to constantly being threatened. When the Minotaur walks away, 17 says he is surprised that he is meeting Goku so suddenly, saying back then he wanted to kill him because of Dr. Gero's orders, only to be absorbed by Cell, so the two never had a chance to meet, let alone fight. Goku is thinking the same thing, and asks 17 to let him test his strength, becoming a Super Saiyan.
Goku immediately attacks, and the two take their fight in the air. When 17 knocks Goku down, he tries to save the forest before Goku crashes into it, but Goku stops himself. The two fight an equal battle, and Goku becomes a Super Saiyan Blue, saying he didn't intend to go full power, also noticing 17 hasn't been going full power either. Goku tells 17 to go all-out since they're above the clouds and they are posing no danger to the forest, charging a Kamehameha. 17 blocks the attack with his Energy Shield, but it ends up getting destroyed. The two collide punches, and they crash back down to the surface fighting an equal battle. 17 suggests they stop there, as any more would destroy the island. Goku agrees, and is relieved 17 is not an enemy with his level of power.
As the two are drinking tea by a bonfire, 17 is thankful for his resurrection via the Dragon Balls, since being revived allowed him to gain his job and meet his wife. He shows Goku pictures of his wife and 3 children (2 being adopted) on his cell phone, also saying he works away from home. 17 then asks Goku why he tracked him down, and Goku starts to explain.
Meanwhile, at Capsule Corporation, Beerus is eating a lot of food and prepares to take a nap, only to ask Whis to wake him up in an hour so he can eat again. Whis tells him not to be greedy and only eat or sleep, and Beerus reminds him that he could be erased in a little while. Goku explains the situation to 17, but he refuses to enter despite winning 10 million Zeni. 17 refuses because he already has enough money from his job, and he cannot leave the island in order to protect it from poachers. Goku offers for Trunks and Goten to watch over it during the tournament, but 17 still refuses, also realizing Goku is lying to him. Goku tells him the truth about being erased, and 17 still remains indifferent, saying that if everyone is erased then it can't be helped, while he is leaving and tells Goku to find someone else.
Meanwhile, a bizarre spaceship is approaching Earth, full of a mob of intergalactic poachers wanting to extract the Minotaur and other rare species.
Android 17 has declined Goku's offer to join the Tournament of Power, despite hearing about being erased should they lose. Goku tries to persuade 17 again, saying that the prize will be the Super Dragon Balls, further tempting him by telling him about how superior they are to Earth's Dragon Balls. The two suddenly hear the Minotaurus howl, and 17 and Goku both sense that something is approaching. An enormous spaceship flies over them, and it fires a binding light to the ground, abducting all of the animals on the island. 17 immediately tries to save them, and Goku follows him, but they are too late as the spaceship prepares to take off. Goku tells 17 to grab him and he uses Instant Transmission to teleport inside the spaceship where more animals, even some from other planets, are being kept. An alarm sounds, and soldiers on the spaceship immediately head to Goku and 17's location. Goku engages them while 17 reminds him not to destroy the spaceship, as the animals would die if they get tossed out.
On Earth, Krillin can sense Goku's energy moving far away. Android 18 can sense the same thing, and hopes that Goku and 17 aren't off playing around somewhere as she says they both have an immature side. On the spaceship, the two defeat all of the soldiers, but two more show up. 17 tells Goku to deal with them while he goes to find their boss. Goku says that's not fair as that would make him the strongest out of all of them, and offers to play rock-paper-scissors to decide who gets to fight him. The soldiers suddenly attack Goku and 17 leaves, confronting the boss in the spaceship's main room. The poacher boss asks if 17 is alone, and 17 responds saying he usually is, but he has a partner with him this time. The poacher boss summons two more fighters, and asks if 17 is scared, but 17 easily defeats them, also threatening the boss to return the animals he has poached.
Goku finds 17, and 17 asks the poacher boss why he's after the Minotaurus. The poacher boss responds saying its horns are valuable, and it is said they can be used to create immortality medicine. He tries to bribe 17 with money, but 17 attacks him again. The boss then pulls out a remote device, threatening to self-destruct along with the spaceship. Despite Goku yelling not to, the boss presses the switch, and the spaceship blows up. However, Beerus suddenly wakes up yelling, as this was a nightmare he had. Bulma is about to put a crying Bulla to bed, and Vegeta is irritated that Beerus and Whis are lounging at Capsule Corporation like its some cheap hotel. Beerus says his dream about Goku dying is a bad omen.
In real time, the boss has not pressed the button yet, but is about to. He tries to blackmail 17 and Goku by having them let him go or he will blow himself up, killing everyone on the ship, including the animals. After thinking for a bit, 17 suddenly tells Goku to protect the animals, and to give his regards to his family and to his sister, 18, before pushing himself and the boss through the ship into outer space. When the hole in the ship causes a huge vacuum, Goku goes Super Saiyan Blue and teleports to the boss and 17, then teleporting them to King Kai's planet. King Kai is shocked, and Goku introduces 17 to him, telling him the boss was about to self-destruct and he brought him here like he did with Cell. King Kai yells to Goku that his planet is not some bomb disposal unit and tells him to go home. Goku leaves the boss with King Kai, but King Kai objects, even though the boss should present no threat as he's not strong enough to move under the increased gravity. Goku is suddenly contacted by Dende, who tells him the boss was lying about having a self-destruct device, and it was all a bluff to try and ensure his escape. 17 orders the boss to press the button, and he fearfully complies, revealing fireworks and confetti.
The captive animals have been safely returned to the island, and Jaco thanks Goku and 17 for helping him capture the poachers he's been chasing after for years, saying he will take the credit for their work despite not being there. Jaco leaves on his spaceship which has the poachers' spaceship attached to it. 17 then decides to accept Goku's offer and join Team Universe 7, leaving the island to Trunks and Goten, and wanting to use the Super Dragon Balls to wish for a boat for him and his family, specifically a large cruise ship that costs five billion Zeni. 17 says it's weird for him to fight on the same team as Goku despite being modified to kill him. Goku says it's not weird at all, saying that Tien, Piccolo and Vegeta are all good guys now despite starting off as bad guys. 17 asks if his brother, referring to his brother-in-law Krillin, is on the team, and he says he is, including Majin Buu, despite 17 being confused and under the impression that Goku killed Buu with the Spirit Bomb.
In a secluded place in the mountains, Gohan and Piccolo are training, where Piccolo tells Gohan that he is aware of the Tournament of Power and about the universe being erased should they lose. Piccolo tells Gohan about Goku meeting with him after the Zen Exhibition Match, saying he'll enter the tournament, and they begin to discuss Gohan. Goku tells Piccolo that Gohan did well at the Zen Exhibition Match, but considering his original power he should have done way better, as he is out of practice. Piccolo asks if Goku has any Senzu Beans left. Piccolo requests Goku to get him two Senzu Beans, determined to train Gohan so he can get his fighting sense back. Goku agrees and leaves the rest to him.
Piccolo, holding the Senzu Beans, says that they won't eat them until the very end, and that it's going to get tough from here on out. Gohan is prepared and becomes a Super Saiyan, and the two start fighting again. Meanwhile, at Capsule Corporation, Bulla is crying as Trunks tries to change her diaper with Goten helping him. Bulma is talking about Bulla while on the phone with someone, and Beerus and Whis are irritated by Bulla's crying. Trunks calls for Vegeta, who effortlessly changes Bulla's diaper, stopping her crying. Beerus watches the others, saying that they could be erased soon and they're acting so carefree. Whis suggests telling them the truth, and Beerus imagines Bulma mouthing off to him, blaming him on not stopping Goku from going to Zen-Oh. Whis asks if he should tell Bulma, and Beerus says it's not necessary.
At Krillin's house, he and Android 18 are sparring. While two civilians walk by and are shocked that lovers' quarrels have escalated so much, Marron cheers on her parents as 18 defeats Krillin. Krillin advises 18 to hold back a little, and 18 is determined to not only win her 10 million Zeni, but gain Krillin's 10 million Zeni for herself, telling Marron she'll buy her whatever she wants. Gohan and Piccolo continue training, and Gohan is being pressured by Piccolo. While Gohan is determined to keep going so that he can protect everyone, Piccolo tells him that his overeagerness is hurting him more than helping him and that he needs to calm down, saying that he won't be able to think clearly that way. While Gohan powers up, Piccolo tells him that he should accept the fact that he will be erased if he loses, then tells him to win, saying he can win and that he needs to be more confident.
In Universe 6, Cabba is flying in a spaceship, and he says that even though Hit is strong, it's not guaranteed he'll be able to win against 70 opponents. He flies to a planet to meet his friend, Renso, but Renso injures his leg as he tries to open the door for Cabba. Renso praises Cabba for his hard work being the ace of the Saiyan elite unit, the Sadala Defense Force, and Renso is revealed to be Cabba's former Captain. Renso heard about Cabba's new ability, and Cabba agrees to show it to him, turning into a Super Saiyan. Renso is impressed and is relieved that the universe is safe as long as Cabba is here. Cabba then tells him about the Tournament of Power, and asks him to enter since his battle experience will come in handy. Renso refuses, due to his retirement and his injured leg, but advises Cabba to take his sister, Caulifla, with him, saying that even though she seems like a punk, her potential power is even greater than Renso's.
Piccolo says that the warm up is over and takes off his weights, telling Gohan to come at him using his full power. Gohan does so and transforms into a Super Saiyan 2. Piccolo says that even though Gohan is powerful, he does have a weakness, and unless Gohan overcomes it he won't be able to last in the tournament. The two start fighting, and Piccolo eventually traps Gohan with his extended arms, asking him if that's all he has. Gohan asks when did Piccolo get so strong, and Piccolo says he hasn't been sitting around doing nothing while Gohan has been studying and researching. Gohan powers down and is defeated, and Piccolo helps him breathe by using a Kiai on his chest. Piccolo tells Gohan that his heart isn't fully like a warrior's, saying he lets his guard down at vital moments, reminding him of his arrogance and overconfidence when Elder Kai unlocked Gohan's full potential to fight Majin Buu. Piccolo tells Gohan to not be arrogant, as he will not win the tournament that way. Gohan, listening to Piccolo's words, powers up. Piccolo says that Super Saiyan 2 isn't Gohan's real power, telling him to awaken the power he used when he fought Buu. Gohan powers up and a light engulfs him, revealing his returned Potential Unleashed state. Gohan says that he will not be holding back now.
Piccolo creates a large number of clones and they all attack Gohan, who is able to read their moves and defeat them with one blow. Gohan then chops off Piccolo's arm, however he is surprised to see that that was the real Piccolo, hesitating. Piccolo says that that's it, and if Gohan fights like that, he won't lose. Gohan thanks Piccolo, who attacks him from behind with his severed arm, saying he still let his guard down. Piccolo reminds Gohan about assuming the fight is over and letting his guard down is what caused him to eventually be absorbed by Buu. Piccolo tells Gohan to lose his arrogance and to not let his guard down until the fight is over, and Gohan agrees, and the two begin to start again.
Later that night, while eating a severed dinosaur's tail, Piccolo tells Gohan that he believes he can get much stronger, and he offers to train him some more in the time they have left. Gohan agrees, and also offers Piccolo to create a double-team combinations for the tournament, and Piccolo says that it seems interesting. At his house, Yamcha rehearses his answer should Goku eventually come to him to ask him to fight in the tournament, while Puar watches him with a bothered face.
Goku heads to Master Roshi's island, where Oolong informs him that Tien and Chiaotzu have started a martial arts dojo. Roshi has headed there to act as a special instructor. At Tien's dojo, a woman named Yurin with a grudge against Tien arrives and requests to join the dojo. Roshi drags her off to ogle her. Goku arrives and asks Tien to join the Tournament of Power, but he is reluctant. Yurin escapes Roshi's advances and uses witchcraft to drive Tien's students on a rampage throughout town. Goku, Tien, Chiaotzu, and Roshi arrive at the village, where Yurin confronts them. Yurin explains that she is a former classmate of Tien's during his time at the Crane School and that she swore revenge on him after he left the school and refused to fight her. Meanwhile, Cabba sways Caulifla into joining Universe 6's team by promising to teach her how to become a Super Saiyan. Back on Earth, while Goku, Chiaotzu, and Tien cure the students of their brainwashing, Roshi battles Yurin. He lowers his guard after catching a glimpse of Yurin's panties, which allows her to brainwash him. The brainwashed Roshi quickly defeats Tien, but Goku intervenes. While Chiaotzu temporarily disables Yurin, Goku subdues Roshi with a Kamehameha wave and cures him of the brainwashing. Tien orders Yurin to apologize to everyone she hurt and offers her a place at his dojo. Tien decides to join the Tournament of Power in order to raise enough money to repair the village. Master Roshi quickly agrees to join as well.
Out in the wasteland, Piccolo finishes training Gohan. Now Gohan must test out his power and Piccolo knows just the person for that. Elsewhere, Goku, Tien Shinhan, Chiaotzu, and Master Roshi are eating at a restaurant. Tien wonders what they’ll do with the remaining time before the tournament, and Roshi offers to teach a few of his techniques. But just then, Piccolo and Gohan walk in, and Gohan requests a sparring match against Goku and Tien.
Back out in the wasteland again, the group selects a suitable spot to serve as their ring. It will be a two on two match: Goku and Tien vs. Gohan and Piccolo. Falling out of the ring means a loss, and since this shall be a battle royal, they should focus on teamwork. Tien warns Goku to remember that this is a practice match: he should be careful not to hurt anyone! But Goku thinks they might be the ones who should worry about getting hurt.
The match begins, and Goku and Gohan rush at each other and trade blows, while Piccolo begins charging up an attack. Tien aims his Tri-Beam at Gohan, but Goku tells him to focus instead on Piccolo, who’s still charging. However, Gohan steps in and prevents Tien from successfully attacking Piccolo, and Piccolo now unleashes a powerful energy wave from out of his entire body.
Goku manages to tough out the big blast, and while Gohan rushes in for a follow-up attack, Goku blocks this too. He compliments Gohan and Piccolo on their wonderful combination, saying that Gohan has managed to get back his knack for fighting. Tien notes that the mountain they’ve been using as an arena has been blown to smithereens, so the match is over. However, Gohan insists on fighting another match against Goku. Though Tien thinks this would be pointless, Goku readily agrees.
Over in Universe 10, Gowasu is fretting over which warriors he should select to fight in the tournament because he doesn’t want to mess up and pick someone like Zamasu again. Rumsshi and his Angel Cus stop by to tell Gowasu he’s overthinking things and rather than using his head, he should decide with his body. To that end, Rumsshi and Cus have brought along ten warriors Rumsshi has already selected. Their leader, Murichim, introduces himself, but he and his fellow fighters soon need to take a time out to drink their protein drinks. They must do this regularly to build up their beefy bodies! Rumsshi thinks he can depend on this group, but Gowasu doesn’t seem quite so certain.
Back on Earth, Goku and Gohan take a Senzu Bean and power up to begin their match. Tien thinks this is a waste of Senzu Beans, but even he now wants to see how these two Saiyans square off. Gohan says he is now at his full power, though Goku notes he’s not a Super Saiyan. Gohan confirms that he is aiming for an "ultimate form" never seen before, and that he is going about it in a different way than Goku. Goku is impressed and figured fighting warriors from other universes would make for the best training. But he forgot he had Gohan there the whole time! The two begin trading blows and firing a barrage of ki blasts, before at last firing off a Kamehameha at each other.
Their battle shakes the ground, and even Vegeta and co. off in West City can tell something’s up. Though Gohan more than holds his own, he remains unsatisfied, and asks Goku to fight with his full power. Goku agrees, and first powers up into his Super Saiyan Blue form, then uses Kaio-Ken to boost. The two clash and when the dust clears, Gohan collapses, though not before vainly trying to get in one final attack. Goku catches Gohan before he hits the ground, saying that they will go forward together. Later after Gohan regains consciousness, he thanks Goku and apologizes to Tien for the trouble. Goku announces that he’s selected Gohan to be the leader of Team Universe 7.
At Zen-Oh's Palace, Zen-Oh and Future Zen-Oh's are playing a strange version of Rochambeau where they hit each other with hammers, but they soon grow tired of this. To entertain them, the Great Priest gives them an update on how the various universes are preparing for the tournament. They are happy to hear that in Universe 7, Goku has successfully assembled a team of ten fighters. At that moment, Goku and most of his team members are holding a strategy meeting with Beerus, Old Kai, and Shin, while Vegeta has flown off to The Lookout to use the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. Popo kindly asks him not to break the room again, but Vegeta is noncommittal. Stepping inside, he vows to defeat Goku and be the last one standing at the tournament. At the meeting, Old Kai suggests using his ability to draw out Goku's potential, but sadly that ritual takes over 24 hours, so they no longer have enough time. Instead, Goku decides to train with Whis until the tournament. Seeing Goku makes the Omni-Kings want to hold the tournament right away, but the Great Priest insists they stick to the predetermined time.
After all, the Great Priest explains, not all the universes' team-gathering efforts are going so well. For instance, Universe 9 is having a tough time: word has gotten out about their universe's potential destruction, causing hoodlums to run wild and attempt to flee to other universes. Sidra destroys the city and decides to look for contestants on some other planet. So far they still haven't managed to gather anyone besides the Trio De Dangers.
In Universe 6, Hit tracks down Frost, who's on the run from the law and slumped over in an alley somewhere. Assuming Hit has come to kill him, Frost at first seems to accept his fate, but this is a bluff to catch Hit off-guard. While Hit blocks the attack, he can tell Frost has improved; being on the run seems to have toughened him up.
Hit explains that Champa has sent him to recruit Frost, and tells Frost about the upcoming tournament. If Frost refuses to enter, Hit vows to kill him on the spot. Frost is happy to enter, but is annoyed to hear he won’t be allowed to use his poison needles. If he cheats and gets caught, he’ll be annihilated!
On Earth, Yamcha watches TV at home, bored and waiting for the tournament invitation he’s sure is coming. Master Roshi and Oolong stop by, but they have business with Puar rather than Yamcha. To prepare for the tournament, Roshi is determined to conquer his one weakness: his dirty-mindedness. To that end, he wants Puar to turn into a hot babe so he can learn to control himself.
Yamcha thinks this plan is hopeless, but gets Puar to cooperate after Oolong had already refused, having been traumatized when Roshi puff-puffed him way back in the day. While Roshi chases the transformed Puar around, Yamcha asks Oolong if he’s ever going to get invited to the tournament. Oolong reassures Yamcha that he will... probably. While Goku and Whis train in the gravity chamber, in Universe 11 Toppo and Dyspo wait at a fancy restaurant for their comrade Kahseral to arrive. They call him, but he’s preoccupied saving a cat for some kids. Back at the palace, the Great Priest explains to the Zen-Ohs how Toppo and his friends are not merely strong, but all good people as well. Still, the Great Priest continues, while Universe 11 has a good chance of winning the tournament, its counterpart Universe 2 is interesting as well.
Right then, an audition is being held in Universe 2 to select their universe's "idol warrior" to enter the tournament. A slim, green-haired girl lines up, and some other ladies in line harass her: did she think this was merely an idol audition? But the girl, Brianne de Chateau, quickly transforms into a pink, chubby warrior known as Ribrianne, who proceeds to blow her opponents up with her Pretty Cannon attack. In Universe 10, Cus has Murichim and his nine warriors dance together in order to "improve their team bonds". Off on the side, Gowasu tapes the event, which he’s sure will get plenty of views (presumably on GodTube). The Universe 10 warriors dance has the Omni-Kings excited, but the Great Priest notes that there's trouble brewing in Universe 7. Back on Earth, Goku cools off after his training while Gohan and Shin consider strategy. Gohan thinks they should stick to the center of the arena to avoid ring-outs, but Shin figures everyone else will try the same thing, turning the center into a fierce battlefield.
Suddenly, Bulma comes in with news from Mr. Satan: it seems that Buu has fallen asleep, and won't wake up again for two months! Shocked, Goku decides to go try and wake Buu up. Beerus insists on coming along too, to give Buu a good pounding. Beerus is plenty ticked off at Buu, first for failing the written test during Universes 6 and 7 Gods of Destruction Selection Martial Arts Competition, and now this, plus the infamous "pudding incident". But while Beerus stews, Goku has already left.
The Emperor of Evil Returns
After arriving at Mr. Satan's mansion, Goku realizes it is hopeless to wake up Buu and Mr. Satan offers to join as a replacement but immediately backs out after remembering the Zeno Exhibition Match. Beerus panics over finding someone else in the three hours left. In Universe 11, Toppo finds Kahersal and asks him to enter the tournament, and although Kahersal has some reservations, he agrees. In Universe 6, Cabba shows his Super Saiyan form to Caulifla and she demands that he teach her how to transform. He instructs her to focus on bringing out her energy from the center of her back. She easily transforms into a Super Saiyan and agrees to participate in the tournament. She introduces Cabba to her protégée, Kale, and asks her to try transforming as well. Back on Earth, Krillin and 18 arrive at Capsule Corp. with Maron, who goes to see Bulla with Trunks and Goten. Krillin is surprised to hear that Master Roshi is training to overcome his weakness to seduction. Elsewhere, Vegeta blows up the Hyperbolic Time Chamber again which irritates Piccolo. Beerus is still concerned about Buu sleeping and asks Gohan to pick a replacement, but Gohan believes Goku will wake Buu up. Krillin brings up about the prize money being on the line but Piccolo and Gohan are confused. When Goku returns, everyone angrily confronts him about lying to them about the prize money and the fact the universe will be erased if they lose. Goku offers to pay them the money himself but Vegeta points out Chichi has control of the money. Goku then asks it from Bulma but she refuses. Krillin condemns Goku for bribing them with money because Goku thought he would be too scared to participate. Krillin and 18 no longer want to participate but Beerus threatens to kill Krillin if he refuses, and Krillin changes his mind. But he says 18 won't participate since there is no prize money and Bulma offers to pay everyone the money. Beerus reminds everyone they are still short one team member, berating them how the universe is so large yet the number of warriors is limited because they destroyed all of Frieza's army forces. Goku has an idea and suggests they recruit Frieza, much to everyone's shock.
Everyone is shocked at Goku's suggestion that they recruit Frieza as the team's tenth member. Goku explains that he heard from Dende that Frieza remains in Hell because he will never repent. Vegeta is the most opposed to this and angrily tells Goku to not think of using the Dragon Balls to resurrect Frieza. Goku asks Whis if Universe 7 can win easily if Frieza joins. Whis is unsure because he doesn't know much about the other universes and mentions there is God of Destruction from one of the universes who beat Beerus, who retorts he lost only once in an arm wrestling contest. Shin says recruiting Frieza is impossible because there is no way of knowing what Frieza will do to them. Everyone is still uneasy even after Goku explains his plan to ask Fortuneteller Baba to bring Frieza back for 24 hours. Goku insists that if Frieza gets out of control, he and Vegeta will defeat him. He then leaves to speak to King Yemma, but everyone is unaware that someone is watching them nearby.
Goku arrives in the after life and asks King Yemma to let him meet with Frieza, much to King Yemma's shock. He asks what business Goku has with Frieza and Goku explains the situation. Although he warns Goku that Frieza will never repent and may cause chaos on Earth, King Yemma is more concerned about the universe being erased and gives Goku permission to go to Hell. In Universe 6, Cabba and Caulifla try to teach Kale how to transform into a Super Saiyan. Kale struggles to transform by focusing on releasing her energy from her back. Caulifla starts insulting Kale to force her to transform through anger, and Cabba is confused. Kale apologizes because she is a weak Saiyan. Caulifla then orders Cabba to insult Kale but he instead makes her cry, and Caulifla berates him for hurting Kale's feelings. Kale, through jealousy of Cabba and Caulifla's friendly arguing, abruptly transforms into a completely different Super Saiyan form. Caulifla is stunned and wonders how she did this, and Cabba thinks it's because Kale thinks Caulifla likes Cabba. Kale attacks Cabba, trying to kill him while Caulifla praises Kale for her newfound power. However, Caulifla realizes Kale's instability and transforms into a Super Saiyan 2 to save Cabba from getting killed by an energy blast. Caulifla tells Kale she doesn't need to get upset because she would never fall for Cabba. Kale turns back her normal state and collapses into Caulifla's arms. Cabba tells Caulifla that she has accidentally found a team member.
Back in Hell, Goku frees Frieza and explains the Tournament of Power to him. Frieza is interested but asks if it would be problem if he didn't go. Goku says it would be a problem but would accept being refused. Frieza then asks if he will return to Hell after the tournament and Goku confirms this. Frieza explains his terms for agreeing to participate: if Universe 7 wins, Goku must use the Dragon Balls to resurrect him. Goku retorts Frieza is in no position to bargain with him. Frieza says he was looking forwards to fighting him again, hitting Goku's weakness in fighting. Goku lies that the winner will win the Super Dragon Balls and asks Frieza to use those but Frieza prefers the Earth's Dragon Balls. Frieza then asks if he can kill his opponents and is disappointed when Goku says no. Frieza says he can endure anyway and Goku goes to Baba, who is reluctant to oblige. She demands a gift as payment and Goku offers his button from Zen-Oh but Baba refuses it, calling it dangerous. Goku takes off to find her a gift. In Universe 4, the God of Destruction Quitela learns from his spy about Team Universe 7 recruiting Frieza. Kuru is afraid of Zen-Oh finding out they are spying on other universes but Quitela says there are no rules about spying. He is amused that Beerus is so desperate that he agrees to resurrect the dead to find a warrior and says Beerus must go.
After negotiating with Frieza, Goku is eating at Capsule Corp. while he waits for Fortuneteller Baba to bring Frieza back. Krillin and the others are still uneasy with Frieza joining but Whis points out that Frieza's resurrection compared to the universe being in jeopardy is small. In Universe 4, Quitela is communicating with Sidra from Universe 9 about Frieza, and Quitela repeats his desire to assassinate Frieza in order for Universe 7 to get disqualified and eliminated by Zen-Oh. In Universe 9, Sidra asks Roh about Quitela's plot, Roh states that there should be no hesitation and decides to send assasins to Universe 7 to kill Frieza.
In Universe 7, Trunks is curious about Frieza after seeing his picture in the board with the rest of the team. Goku tells Bulma that Trunks and Goten do not know about the Tournament of Power and Vegeta says knowing will be a bother. Bulma tells Trunks that everyone on the board are guests for the celebration of Bulla's birth but Trunks points out Frieza is evil. Vegeta reluctantly lies that Frieza has redeemed although Vegeta is disgusted with himself for defending Frieza. Goku asks Trunks if he wants to go to 17's island to protect all its animals and monsters so 17 can attend. Vegeta is about to protest but Trunks excitedly agrees and goes to tell Goten. Bulma and Vegeta are irritated at Goku for using their son as a bargain to get 17 to agree to the tournament. Goku asks Krillin to take the boys to the island to pick up 17. Krillin is reluctant but Goku reminds him of how much 17 has changed and Krillin, comparing this to 18, agrees. Goku leaves to pick up Frieza but not before asking a gift from Bulma to give to Baba.
Krillin, 18, Trunks, Goten, and Marron arrive at the island and meet with Android 17. 18 and 17 coldly greet each other while Krillin tries nervously to initiate a friendly conversation, but he is told by his wife not to force it. 17, having met Marron for the first time, kindly greets her, but, mispronounces her name to "Maron" with 18, threatening her brother to kill him if he mispronounced her name again. While Trunks and Goten explore the island, 17 wonders if is safe to entrust the island to the boys and Krillin confirms it is, stating that they are, after all, the sons of Goku and Vegeta. Marron asks if she can stay with Trunks and Goten. Krillin initially refuses, worrying for her safety, but 18 claims that Marron is tougher than he thinks. As Krillin and the two androids leave, a pair of poachers watch from inside a submarine, thinking that the insland is completely unprotected, and guarded by a "couple of kids", but one of them senses that Goten and Trunks are not ordinary kids, because he saw the two flying. Krillin, 18, and 17 arrive at Capsule Corp. Gohan encourages everyone to put the past behind them so they can fight for the universe. Piccolo and 17 met for the first time in years since their last encounter, to Gohan's slight worry, rather than fighting, the two once bitter adversaries shake hands and share thanks to each other by. Meanwhile, Frieza is finally brought back, Goku is about to greet him, but Frieza used a heavy punch on Goku's stomach as "greeting", claiming that he "slipped" his hand, Goku does the same in retaliation, also claiming that his hand also "slipped". They are about to leave when they learn there are many strange-looking figures asking for Goku and Frieza. Goku suspects they were sent to stop him from entering in the tournament, they, however refuse to give out information and he is shot by Frieza using a Death Beam, who sees this as a warm greeting. Meanwhile, an impatient Beerus complains about Goku being late, while Krillin asks Whis what will happen if they are late, with Whis casually replying they will be disqualified and the universe will be erased. Goku desperately wants to leave with Frieza because they are running out of time, but Frieza transforms into his Golden Frieza state, stating that his body has grown soft in Hell and wants a warm-up and if there is no time left, he claims is not at fault.
Frieza, having transformed into Golden Frieza, tells the assassins not to think he's a cheater for launching a surprise attack since they were the ones who started the fight. Goku figures out that the assassins are from another universe, and the assassins say their universe isn't weak like Universe 7, saying their universe is full of rough fighters, which fascinates Frieza. The assassins offer them to forget about the Tournament of Power and to play with them. Goku accepts the fact they have to fight, and asks Frieza if he is fine transforming, knowing the form's drawbacks from their previous fight. Frieza dismisses him, saying that during his time in Hell, he has been conducting mental training to keep his composure, thus dramatically increasing his energy control and reducing the stamina weakness of his Golden Frieza form. Frieza, explaining his energy control skills are "delicate enough to not stir water" but keeping his usual intensity, now calls himself the "true" Golden Frieza.
Frieza then begins his assault on the assassins, killing a large number of them with his Death Beams, asking them if they like the new and improved him. When Goku tells Frieza not to kill anymore, Frieza dismisses him, saying that them dying by his hand and having their universe erased if they lose in the Tournament of Power is no different. Goku is forced to join in the fight when some assassins try to attack Fortuneteller Baba. Goku tells her and Ghost Usher to hide in the palace. Goku then steps in front of Frieza.
While Goku and Frieza are arguing, the leader assassin prepares a ball of Energy of Destruction, which was granted to him by Universe 9 God of Destruction Sidra, telling him that anyone hit by this energy will be completely destroyed, even preventing them from going to Other World. When he tries to sneak behind Frieza, Frieza easily notices him and mocks him, telling him to aim properly, knowing the assassins were relying on that energy since they did not appear to be worried despite the large difference in power.
The leader assassin desperately throws the attack, and Frieza easily dodges it and destroys it. However, the leader assassin reveals that was just a normal blast and fires the "real" energy, but Frieza destroys it before he could throw it. To Goku and Frieza's surprise, the leader assassin reveals the true energy which was hidden underwater, and Frieza is struggling to defend against it, being engulfed by the energy. However, Frieza was only pretending to be hurt by the attack, and to everyone's shock, Frieza manages to compress the energy back into a sphere, also killing the surprised leader assassin.
Goku is surprised that Frieza managed to escape the energy, noting his power has increased despite being unable to move in Hell. Frieza and Goku figure out that such pure, condensed dark energy most likely came from a God, the same person who sent the assassins. Goku yells at the assassins that Universe 7 will not run or hide, and they can settle their business in the Tournament of Power. Suddenly, Frieza hits Goku with the Energy of Destruction, saying security is the greatest enemy. In the World of Void, Great Priest has finally finished constructing the fighting stage for the Tournament of Power, and the two Zen-Oh give him candy, impressed by his work.
Frieza says Goku is still as soft as ever, turning his back on him despite him thinking about killing Goku. Frieza advises Goku to hurry and escape from the Energy of Destruction the same way he did. Goku tries to do so, but the Energy proves to be too much for him to handle, much to Frieza's entertainment. Frieza confronts the remaining assassins, ordering them to let him converse with the Gods from their universe. Sidra and Rou are waiting impatiently, until they are suddenly contacted by Frieza, who stole one of the assassins' communicators. Frieza tells him he will not inform Zen-Oh about their failed assassination, but wants to bargain with them about joining the Universe 9 team, showing them that he captured Goku and saying Universe 7 will not be able to win without him.
Frieza says that if Sidra and Rou recruit him and resurrect him, he promises to perform well in the Tournament of Power, not wanting to be collateral damage should Universe 7 lose. When Rou asks why he would betray his own universe, wondering about any memories or loved ones Frieza may have, Frieza coldly dismisses him, saying he has no idea what he's talking about. Sidra and Rou discuss this, confirming that recruiting a warrior from another universe is not against the rules. Rou shows concern, saying that Frieza is a psychopath and more cruel than even Sidra, and Sidra says that's beneficial for them, and he can destroy Frieza should he betray them. Beerus and Whis arrive to the scene, and Frieza instantly destroys the communicator.
Beerus asks what Goku is doing, and saves him from the Energy by blowing it away. Beerus recognizes that energy as Energy of Destruction, asking Frieza why they were taking so long, and wondering if he's plotting with another universe. Goku says it's his fault for letting his guard down and forgetting how scum Frieza is. Whis shoots out the idea that Frieza may have been obtaining information from the other universes. Frieza secretly plots to himself that since the Tournament of Power is making even the Gods uneasy, this is the perfect chance to manipulate them. Goku asks Whis for a minute, and challenges Frieza to a short match, making whoever lands the first punch the winner. If Goku wins, Frieza will forget his grudge and act obedient for Team Universe 7, and if Frieza wins he gets to do whatever he pleases. Frieza thinks to himself about his time in Hell, doing not just mental concentration to increase his power, but conducting endless battle simulations of killing Goku.
The match begins, and Goku and Frieza move around each other, creating shockwaves. Goku goes Super Saiyan Blue and the two charge at each other, landing a punch on each other at the same time. Goku warns Frieza about not killing more innocent bystanders, stating that he will not forgive him Frieza, states otherwise, he refuses to take orders from him, and what they have between each other is not over. The four go back to Capsule Corporation, and the other universes prepare themselves for the Tournament of Power.
The time for the Tournament of Power draws near, and before it begins, the Supreme Kais, Gods of Destruction, and their Angels of the 4 universes exempt from entering (Universe 1, Universe 5, Universe 8, and Universe 12) arrive and observe the fighting stage. They comment that the stage looks plain, but accept this as no decorations are needed for a competition of power. They wonder if this stage would be able to stay stabilized as the matches go on. Great Priest arrives, telling them that the two Zen-Oh are in their antechamber waiting for the tournament to begin. Great Priest explains that the fighting stage is created from Kachi Katchin, a material harder than Katchin of Universe 7. Great Priest offers them to test the stage out, believing Zen-Oh to be bored until the tournament begins, and Liquiir, God of Destruction of Universe 8, happily accepts, wanting to show Zen-Oh their superiority over the other universes. Liquiir, along with Iwne and Arack, the Gods of Destruction of Universes 1 and 5 respectively, prepare to battle in a free-for-all using the Tournament of Power's rules. Geene, the God of Destruction of Universe 12, is asked why he won't be competing, and he says the results would be obvious if he did.
The match begins, and the three Gods of Destruction begin fighting each other to such intensity that their movements can barely be seen and each attack decimates part of the fighting stage's floor. The three collide huge energy attacks, creating a large crater. Great Priest calls the match to an end, and the three Gods thank each other, also asking if Zen-Oh was satisfied with their match. Great Priest shows that Zen-Oh did not watch their match because they are taking a nap, and Great Priest also requests the perplexed Gods to repair the fighting stage, as he will be too busy opening the gates.
Meanwhile, in Universe 7, everyone goes on their guard as they reunite with Frieza. Frieza notes that there are some familiar faces, and Beerus threatens him if he does anything stupid. Vegeta mocks Frieza for his Halo, and Frieza says he'll give him his own if he wants. Tien asks Goku if he really wants him to be a member, and Goku says he'll keep Frieza in check, and he is needed since no one else would be suitable to replace Buu. Shin tries to explain to the team their strategy to win, and Vegeta says that all they need to do is take out the ones who look strong, and Frieza agrees, much to Vegeta's chagrin. Shin explains the strategy to the group: stick together and preserve their stamina, and to also avoid fighting alone and work together to fight opponents, using two people to fight one opponent, three people to fight two opponents, and so on. Goku wonders if that's a little unfair, and Vegeta agrees since Saiyans do not rely on numbers to fight. Gohan and Piccolo agree to maintain command since Goku and Vegeta will most definitely not rely on teamwork. Whis instructs everyone to hold hands in a circle, and Vegeta is completely against participating in a "friendship circle" with Frieza. Vegeta hesitates holding Frieza's hand, until Beerus angrily steps in-between them. Whis contacts Great Priest, who uses his power to instantly teleport the group to the fighting stage. As they leave, Bulma wishes them luck.
Goku is fascinated at the stage, and soon the groups of the other universes arrive, first being Team Universe 4. Beerus notes to Whis that they could have teleported without holding hands, but Whis was jokingly attempting to raise the team's morale, even though Beerus says that almost tore it apart. Android 18 directs the group's attention to the side of the stage, revealing pure darkness. Whis reminds the team that they cannot fly to counter falling off the stage, and Goku confirms this by attempting to fly, showing that their Flight is nullified. Android 17 directs the group to Team Universe 10, showing that a couple bird-like warriors are flying, and Whis says that they can do so manually due to their wings. Whis, Beerus, Shin and Old Kai head to the spectator seats, wishing the warriors good luck.
Team Universe 6 has arrived, and Frost introduces himself to the group, particularly Frieza. Goku says hello to Hit, and Cabba reunites with his de facto mentor, Vegeta, introducing him to Caulifla and Kale. Goku tries to shake Caulifla's hand, but Caulifla slaps it away, saying she's not going to be buddy-buddy with an opposing universe. Goku agrees with her. Krillin asks Master Roshi if he's okay with going against women, and Roshi says he has overcome his weakness. Team Universe 9 shows resentment towards Universe 7, but show confidence in their warriors. Frost and Frieza engage in a secret conversation, agreeing to work with each other.
Great Priest is contacted by Team Universe 11, and as they arrive, Goku, Vegeta. and Cabba feel their ki and stand on guard. Caulifla says if Universe 7's Saiyans are afraid, then they are nothing to worry about. Goku goes to greet the Pride Troopers, wanting to settle his business with Toppo. Toppo says he is uninterested with personal squabbles, and he is determined to fight to save his universe. Goku tries to greet Jiren, but Jiren suddenly appears behind Goku, telling him to get lost. Goku wonders how he got behind him, and Liquiir, Iwne and Arack notice the warriors gathering and they pick up the pace, with everyone being forced to dodge the blocks they're throwing around, but to Goku's surprise, Jiren is unfazed as the blocks narrowly pass by him.
The fighting stage is finished, and every universe has gathered. Goku notices a Yardrat on Team Universe 2, saying they should watch out for him if he knows Instant Transmission. The group also notices that Universe 4 has only 8 warriors, but Tien realizes that even though it's faint, he can sense the presence of the remaining two, who are concealing themselves. Every universe is formally introduced, and Gohan says that once the fight begins, they should gather and strengthen their defense, and to work together to fight, however Vegeta and Frieza disagree. The two Zen-Oh greet everyone and tell them to make this fight exciting to watch. Thus, the Tournament of Power is about to officially begin.
The Tournament of Power Begins
The eight universes participating in the Tournament of Power are staring each other down. The two Zen-Oh are excited as the Grand Priest makes his entrance on top of the stage's main pillar. Grand Priest goes over the rules again: the time limit is 100 taks (48 Earth minutes), and the use of weapons, killing, and Flight are not allowed, however warriors with wings may still fly. Gohan goes over the strategy again with Universe 7: stick together and always fight with superior numbers, however Vegeta and Frieza once again show sarcastic disagreement. Kale is afraid and Caulifla tells her to remember to "go flashy" again. Goku and Toppo stare each other down, and Frieza is amused at the amount of tension and bloodlust in the air. Master Roshi offers to fight against the female warriors, and Tien shows skepticism. Shin is worried about his universe, and Old Kai tells him to just trust in them as their fates rest in the warriors' hands. Beerus yells at his fighters about teamwork, and Quitela mocks and laughs that Beerus, of all people, would spout teamwork which Beerus refuses to retort to.
The Tournament of Power finally begins, and every warrior rushes to face another warrior, soon engulfing the entire battle stage with lights and battle sounds. Universe 7 sticks together in the ensuing chaos, however Goku spots Toppo fighting with Magetta and flies away to fight him, but he is interrupted by Ganos. Gohan tries to remind Goku about their teamwork strategy, but Android 17, Android 18, Vegeta, and Frieza also fly away to fight. Narirama, a modified robot warrior from Universe 3, begins spinning himself in order to knock some fighters away, and Helles of Universe 2 comments that it's not beautiful for her female warriors to be attacked before they transform. The Universe 3 gods dub this method the "Super Survival Mode", however it was easily shut down by Hit and Basil. A female warrior from Universe 10, Lilibeu, fights against Basil, however he counters her attack and knocks her out of the ring, revealing that defeated warriors are instantly transported to the stands to spectate. In order to keep track of the fighters, Zen-Oh reveals they have a tablet, called the GodPad, that they use to mark the fighters who have been knocked out.
The Universe 10 God of Destruction, Rumsshi, berates Lilibeu for forgetting to use her wings, and for the fact that his universe is the first to have a fighter be knocked out. Beerus cheers for his universe, however he overhears Champa cheering for Universe 6 to knock out Universe 7 out of spite. Android 18, Vegeta, Android 17, and Goku are fighting their respective battles, and the remainder of Universe 7: Gohan, Piccolo, Krillin, Tien, and Roshi are surrounded by Botamo, Shosa, Comfrey, Dercori, and Lavender, who wants revenge against Gohan. The Universe 7 fighters assume a Manji Formation, following the plan, and they initiate a combo attack: Tien's Solar Flare, Piccolo's Special Beam Cannon, Krillin's Destructo Disk, Gohan's energy beam barrage, and Master Roshi's MAX Power Kamehameha to attack the fighters. However, the fighters remain unharmed, and Master Roshi compliments them as they are indeed worthy of entering the tournament.
Basil is fighting a sumo-wrestling warrior, Napapa, and fails in knocking him out. While Goku continues to fight Ganos, he is knocked aside and Goku lays eyes on Toppo, who is also knocked aside by Murichim, revealing Jiren to be standing still in the ensuing chaos. Zen-Oh spots Jiren and they agree to keep an eye on him. Goku prepares to battle Jiren one on one, but he is grabbed behind and held in a headlock by a muscly warrior from Universe 4, Nink. Despite Goku fighting to be free, Nink prepares to jump off the ring, intending to sacrifice himself to eliminate Goku. Before they both fall off, Goku goes Super Saiyan Blue to overpower the fighter, sending him knocked down and saving himself. Beerus yells at Goku for not going Blue before, but Goku wants to save his power. Goku is then surrounded by a number of warriors, including the Trio De Dangers, however he smiles, wanting to be in this kind of situation.
Several warriors from Universe 9, including Basil, Lavender, & Bergamo immediately surround Goku. Roh cackles while he waits for Goku to feel despair. Goku immediately engages the warriors in battle, excited to fight them again, especially Bergamo, commenting that Bergamo hid his power in the Zen Exhibition Match and only used the power he stole from Goku. Shin asks why Goku is not going Super Saiyan Blue to finish them off quickly, and Whis answers by saying since the form drains stamina heavily, Goku is pacing himself by making sure he has enough stamina to last the whole tournament since the use of Senzu Beans are prohibited. Old Kai criticizes Shin for not figuring this out. The two Zen-Oh and even the Great Priest show interest in Goku going against the Trio De Dangers' combination attacks. Lavender reveals his Poison Blow, and relentlessly attacks Goku with his brothers, as Goku desperately dodges Lavender's attacks to avoid being poisoned, knowing about how dangerous it is. To counter it, Goku creates a ki barrier around himself, having discussed with Gohan about how to counter the poison, and is able to attack and defend against it. However, the combined might of the three brothers seem to keep Goku on the defensive.
Frieza, having defeated Napapa, notices Goku having fun and prepares to have fun himself. Roselle tries to attack Frieza from behind, but Frieza casually fires a Death Beam without turning his back and shoots Roselle's wings, rendering it useless. Helpless, Roselle screams in despair as Frieza ruthlessly attacks him, wanting to turn him into his "plaything". Bergamo explains that in order to survive in the "garbage dump" that is Universe 9, the Trio De Dangers had to work together to team up and defeat opponents more powerful than them individually, revealing their combination attack: Dangers' Triangle. Vegeta, knocking back Nigrisshi and Obuni, notice Goku having trouble and goes to back him up, asking him why he's having trouble with mutts. Goku reminds Vegeta that it's tough to fight three of them at once when their energy can't be sensed. Whis is aware that even though Goku and Vegeta working together would mean they would have no trouble, but Whis cannot see them working together. With Goku and Vegeta against 8 enemies, they agree on fighting 4 each, and Vegeta charges and fights Lavender, knowing about his poison and creating his own ki barrier.
Vegeta is then suddenly attacked by Hop and her claws, and Lavender also attacks him. Chappil goes against Goku with his iron body, and Goku and Vegeta find themselves fighting all 10 Universe 9 warriors and their combination attacks. To Beerus' annoyance, Champa roots for Universe 9, knowing that if Goku and Vegeta are out of the picture, the rest of Universe 7 is easy pickings. Goku and Vegeta are pushed back by the Universe 9 warriors, and Vegeta's hand is frozen solid by Hyssop's Ice Lance. Despite this, Vegeta narrowly dodges Hop's claw slash, and she accidentally attacks Lavender. With the two distracted, Goku takes the opportunity to go Super Saiyan and knock Chappil and Comfrey off the stage. Vegeta then unleashes a combo attack on Hop, knocking her out. Whis explains that after they froze Vegeta's hand, they rushed trying to end things, but their coordination got sloppy and they were left wide open. Vegeta's other hand is trapped by Oregano's webs, but he goes Super Saiyan and frees both of his hands, telling him not to underestimate his power. Vegeta assaults Hyssop with multiple attacks, knocking him and Oregano out with a single powerful attack. With 7 warriors eliminated (Sorrel was knocked out off-screen by Android 18 and Roselle was scared of Frieza and willingly jumped off), the Trio De Dangers are left to face Goku and Vegeta.
The three are overwhelmed by the two Super Saiyans, and unleash their final, desperate combo attack: Triangle Danger Beam. Vegeta and Goku go Super Saiyan Blue and unleash their Final Kamehameha combo attack, knocking the Trio De Dangers out of the ring. With this, every Universe 9 warrior has been eliminated, and as a consequence their universe will be erased. The remaining warriors watch as the two Zen-Ohs immediately erase the frightened Universe 9 warriors, Roh, Sidra, along with their entire universe, except Mojito, who mischievously smirks to himself. Beerus has Whis confirm that Universe 9 has been completely erased from existence, and every remaining fighter realizes the severity of the situation they're in, especially Goku.
Having stopped their fighting, every warrior stood in disbelief over the sudden erasure of Universe 9, including the spectating Gods. Vegeta is surprised that Zen-Oh really followed through with the extreme stipulation, and Goku earnestly points out that this is the second time they witnessed an entire universe being erased (the first being when Future Zen-Oh erased Future Trunks' timeline). Goku reminds Vegeta that if Zen-Oh decides to erase something, then it's getting erased no matter what, and he confidently states that he will be the last warrior standing, with Vegeta replying that he'll be the last one standing. Mojito, the Angel of Universe 9, snidely comments that he is the first out since his universe was erased, and it was to be expected. Anat, Supreme Kai of Universe 1, states that Universe 9's sacrifice was necessary, given that thanks to Goku bringing up the tournament, the lower-level universes have a chance to survive instead of being arbitrarily erased, and since they were defeated, they deserved to be erased to balance the universes. The spectators of Universe 7 are shook that Zen-Oh erased Universe 9 with no hesitation, and Vados laughs at Champa's nervousness and reminds him that he needs his fighters to try hard so he won't get erased.
Krillin, rattled by what transpired, takes a deep breath and calms himself down, and Gohan makes sure his teammates haven't lost their morale. Frieza notes that Zen-Oh's actions are vexing, and vows that he will one day rule over even them. Android 18 is also a little rattled, but Android 17 reminds her that if they lose, they will be erased and there won't be a chance for them to feel despair. He reminds her of their advantage as being Androids with infinite energy and they will never tire, also noting that it's good that she has gotten kinder since they last fought together. 18 agrees with her brother, and they both agree to cut loose. Zen-Oh wonders why everyone stopped fighting, and Great Priest says they should start again once they regain their composure. Old Kai notes that since everyone witnessed Zen-Oh actually erasing a universe, they will be more lenient and rethink their plans.
Hit and Botamo start walking towards Goku and Vegeta, and they both remind each other to not waste their power. Vegeta wants to repay them back, transforming into a Super Saiyan and tries to attack Hit, but Botamo blocks his attack while Hit teleports. Vegeta continues to punch Botamo, but he takes no damage. However, when Botamo attacks, Vegeta tries to throw him, remembering Botamo's ability from their last encounter. Botamo, remembering that Goku threw him the same way, stops himself, but Vegeta ties his arms together and picks him up, preparing to throw him off the side. Champa screams for someone to help Botamo, and Auta Magetta punches Vegeta aside. With Botamo free, he and Magetta prepare to jump Vegeta, but Vegeta smirks.
Jium tries to attack Krillin, but Gohan counters the attack, saying there's no need for them to exert too much. Piccolo takes off his weights, and Krillin, despite Beerus telling him to just run, uses Destructo Disc Triple Blade to cut Jium's wings, and he is knocked out of bounds by Master Roshi's Kamehameha. Beerus reminds Vegeta that Magetta's weakness is insults, and Vegeta calls him several names, and Champa laughs and says Magetta overcame that weakness. Botamo sits on Magetta's shoulders, calling themselves Bota Magetta with Botamo's invincible body and Magetta's mental strength, but Vegeta points out that Botamo is covering Magetta's ears to counter the insults. Magetta shoots his Lava Spit, and Vegeta dodges and tries to punch Botamo off, but Botamo absorbs the damage.
Whis points out Android 18's battle with Shosa, who is overwhelmed and knocked out by 18, but after a hard attack, he was considered to have been killed. However, his specialty is playing dead, and he attacks 18 when she checks on his body. Before she is knocked off the stage, Krillin saves her. 18 says she'll pay Shosa back in full, but Shosa offers them to jump off the stage while they still can, saying that 18's pretty face shouldn't get messed up. 18 and Krillin agree to try a new attack they practiced, and Krillin fires a ki blast that Shosa dodges, but 18 knocks it back. Krillin and 18 play ping-pong with the ki blast with Shosa in the middle, and he notices that after each hit it grows bigger. 18 then knocks the huge ki blast towards Shosa, who is knocked off.
Krillin is suddenly attacked from behind by Majora, but 18 protects him. He wonders if they can defeat him, revealing his closed eyes, and Krillin gives 18 the shades he suddenly took from Master Roshi without him noticing, using the Solar Flare x100. However, it proves ineffective, and Krillin is knocked down, with Majora commenting that his eyes lost their sight long ago. Krillin wonders how he was able to pinpoint their location despite the light, but 18 points out that he's using his sense of smell. Krillin prepares to fight Majora alone, dismissing 18's concern. Krillin and Majora go head-to-head, and when Majora attacks, Krillin throws his shoe at him, stunning Majora with its stench. With Majora distracted, Krillin knocks him off with a Kamehameha. Krillin is triumphant on his victory, but 18 is embarrassed, saying when they get home she'll wash his shoes. With Krillin distracted, he's suddenly knocked off by Frost. When 18 tries to retaliate, Frost creates a smokescreen and disappears.
With Krillin eliminated, Beerus shuns him but implies that what's done is done, and all he can do now is cheer on his teammates. Supreme Kai looks sternly down at Krillin and says that he is not disappointed, but Krillin is not reassured due to the fierce look in his eyes.
Gohan, Piccolo, Tien, and Master Roshi discuss Krillin being eliminated. Master Roshi pulls the group together by reminding them that they still have nine people left. Android 17 and Android 18 both criticize Krillin for letting his guard down, with 18 also telling him that the money he used for his training equipment has been put to waste. Krillin apologizes, and Champa teases Beerus about the countdown to Universe 7's erasure having started. Champa points out that another warrior may be on the verge of being defeated as Vegeta is having trouble against Auta Magetta and Botamo's teamwork. Vegeta is pushed on the other side of a smoke cloud, and he is suddenly confronted by Cabba.
As Cabba walks towards Vegeta, Murisam of Universe 10 and Nigrisshi try to attack Cabba, but Cabba easily parries them and knocks them off the stage without even directing his attention to them. Cabba turns into a Super Saiyan, telling Vegeta that it is time for him to drop off. Hit destroys Narirama's body, and threatens him to jump off before he is knocked off. Narirama tries to use his trump card, a cannon blast from the core on his chest, but Hit uses Time-Skip and finger-flicks Narirama off the stage before he can fire the attack. Ea is distraught that his warriors are being defeated one after another.
Kale is seen fighting Methiop of Universe 3, and she lands a weak punch, but he easily shakes it off, punching her in the stomach. As Kale backs off, she steps on Napapa's foot, who grabs her by the hair as Methiop keeps punching her. Kale is knocked out, and Napapa calls her a weakling as he knocks her off the stage. Before she falls, she is saved by Caulifla. Caulifla tells her protégé to rest, and confronts her attackers, turning into a Super Saiyan and telling them not to underestimate her. Caulifla immediately attacks Methiop, sending him flying with a barrage of punches, and wrestles with Napapa, landing a suplex on him and causing him to fall off.
Caulifla goes back to Kale and tells her that she's stronger than she thinks. She tells her to go win a fight against Goku, who is currently fighting Jimmies from Universe 2. Jimmies teleports all around Goku, and as he tries to attack, he is knocked off by Caulifla. Caulifla asks Goku about him turning into a Super Saiyan with a color she never saw before and tells him to teach her how to become one so she can beat him up. Goku says that she isn't ready for Super Saiyan Blue, and Caulifla is angered at this, telling Kale to transform so they can defeat Goku. Kale tries to do so, but fails. Goku, disinterested, asks if he can leave, but Caulifla tells him to hold on, transforming into a Super Saiyan Third Grade. Goku is impressed by Caulifla's talent, and Caulifla challenges Goku to a one-on-one, but is too slow to land a blow on him. Goku, knowing all about the form and its drawbacks, tells her that the form is too slow and is a liability in a fight. Goku tells her that she should be aiming to become a Super Saiyan 2, also showing her the form.
Caulifla is fascinated, and tells him that she became one once but hasn't been able to do it since Kale's first transformation. Caulifla succeeds in becoming a Super Saiyan 2, and Goku is impressed, saying she might be able to reach Super Saiyan 3, but she should work on mastering Super Saiyan 2. Caulifla and Goku prepare to fight, and they fight an equal battle. Kale tries to console Caulifla, but Caulifla ignores her as she is having fun fighting Goku. Kale tries to support Caulifla, firing a ki blast at Goku, but Goku asks her to not interfere. Kale meekly asks Caulifla if she is a bother, but Caulifla disregards her question, which sparks Kale and causes her to cry. Her sorrow then turns into animosity, and she gains a hatred for Goku that drives her to transform.
Goku and Caulifla stop their fight, distracted by Kale's power up, with Vegeta and Cabba also distracted. Goku is shocked at how strong Kale is, and Kale immediately attacks Goku, with the impact almost knocking Caulifla off the stage but she is saved by Hit. Hit tells her that she woke up quite a beast, and Caulifla realizes Hit used Time-Skip to save her, thanking him. Vegeta tells Goku to be careful, saying that Kale's transformation might be the true form of a Saiyan, and Kale directly attacks Goku, who tries to fight back but is unable to do a thing against her. After Goku is knocked away, he becomes a Super Saiyan Blue and charges a Kamehameha as Kale walks towards him. However, Kale easily shakes off the blast and continues to walk forward, grabbing Goku by his face. Piccolo comments that Kale cannot control her power, and she gives in to her rage and powers up, sending a number of ki blasts throughout the entire stage and eliminates Methiop in the process.
In the ensuing chaos, Kale walks towards Goku again, but she is confronted by Vuon who restrains her, saying they will not allow anymore violence. Kale breaks out of Vuon's Justice Whip and knocks him off the stage. The other Pride Troopers watch Kale as she lets out a loud roar, and Jiren springs into action. Hit points out that if Kale goes too far and kills someone, she'll be disqualified, and Caulifla tries to calm Kale down. Kale suddenly appears and tries to attack Caulifla in her blinding rage, but Jiren sends her flying with a ki attack, causing a huge explosion. Hit confronts Jiren as Kale, unconscious, is caught by Caulifla. When Goku appears, Hit and Caulifla fall back, and Goku and Jiren once again confront each other.
