Except Darwinian struggle is struggle against blind forces. Animals do not hate each other and Nature is not deliberately aloof or cruel.

But this tournament pits intelligent beings against each other in the knowledge all their loved ones will die if they lose - for the entertainment of a god who is apparently completely amoral or worse. Don't call it Darwinian Law. It isn't. It's a sick parody.

I call it that because as far as the universes are concerned it is. Regardless of how it started, they must fight for survival, do or die, kill or be killed. Be the situation natural or artificial the rules are the same. There is no parody.

It's just made horrible by the fact that its being played out by intelligent beings who have had it forced upon them by an uncaring God....but aside from a few "intelligent rules"....really its just the law of the jungle, regardless of how it starts. 

It would be a parody or a mockery if this were about power alone, but this is also about team work, intelligence and abilities. For it is not the strongest who will win but the fittest. 

For Zen-Oh this is a game, for us a sick game.....but for those who must fight what is it other then Darwinian Law?

Edit: It may be cold hearted of me to think of it that way but thats what this boils down to for the fighters. They are in a fight beyond good and evil, were the morality we cherish has no foot hold, this is the fight for survival.

No, they are in an evil fight. Heroes are pitted against heroes and the loser gets killed along with everybody they have ever known and fought for.

If Goku does not do something about this, stop the destruction of the other universes, this show has really passed the ethical event horizon.

It seems obvious to me that Goku plans to win and then use the giant planet dragonballs to bring the other universes back or stop zen-o from destroying them.

That's all they have ever done in the past.  Goku doesn't care so much for consequences because up til now, any consequence has been nullified by the dragonballs.

But this not Hero vs Hero.

Not counting the reformed assassin, demons, space pirate and killer cyborgs on his team, Buu is going to be unable to participate and the first person Goku thinks of to replace him is Frieza! 

C_s5UUbVwAIV-dW.png

Yes this mass murderer, who destroys worlds on a whim and torturous people to death for fun, is really going to be a part of the Universe 7 team. 

Universe 6 has Frost, Frieza's counterpart who starts wars with his space pirate gang, swoops in to act the hero and the buys up all the cheap land from the war ravaged people and became the Emperor of known space. No only that, this rat basterds also uses hidden poisons, some of which can kill people. Then they have Hit, a legendary assassin who's over 1000 years old. This guy is a professional killer who likely has a body count that any slasher villain would envy. 

Universe 9 has the Trio De Dangers who are clearly total scum bags. None of them show the slightest hint of consideration for the well being of others lives, one cheats by using drugs to power up and another uses poison that rots his opponents body and would have killed Gohan.

Universe 4 has suicide bomber type warrior.

Their are some really nasty pieces of work in this tournament and thats why its beyond good an evil, because only the best warriors are picked regardless of which way their moral compass points. Each universe is doing anything and everything they can to win and its lucky the tournament has "no killing" as a rule otherwise this would be a blood bath. Hell nothing in the rules says they cant maim each-other so it could get nasty anyway since you can only win by Ring Out.

We have already crossed a pretty big moral horizen when some of these Universes start bringing guys like this into the fight. Hell the only good one so far is my Universe 11 since its Pride Troopers are all heroes. The irony of which in not lost on me, the main Universe is 7 and they have Frieza...as an audience we are cheering for Frieza to win over a team of dedicated heroes! 

Edit: Its also worth noting U9 brought the Trio De Dangers befor they knew about universal destruction.

Edit 2: In fact U6 is going one immoral step further by throwing Kale, a timid and shy saiyan, into this battle and the mental stress will turn her into a insane berserker.

Episode 91 Summery. 

At the Omni-Kings’ palace, the two Omi-Kings are playing a strange version of rock-paper-scissors 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 and the rest of the U7 top gods, while Vegeta has flown off to Dende’s temple to use the Room of Spirit and Time. Popo kindly asks him not to break the room again (as he did last time), but Vegeta is noncommittal. Stepping inside, he vows to defeat Goku and be the last one standing at the tournament.

At the meeting, Elder Kaioshin suggests using his ability to draw out Goku’s potential (as he did with Gohan before), 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, U9 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 (U9’s God of Destruction) destroys these hoodlums and decides to look for contestants on some other planet. So far they still haven’t managed to gather anyone besides Trio de Dangers…

In U6, 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 U6’s God of Destruction 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. Muten 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 (Oolong himself has already refused, having been traumatized when Roshi puff-puff’d 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 Khaseral 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 Omni-Kings how Toppo and his friends are not merely strong, but all good people as well. Still, the Great Priest continues, while U11 has a good chance of winning the tournament, its counterpart U2 is interesting as well... 

Right then, a martial arts tournament is being held in U2 to select the U2 “idol warrior”. A slim, green-haired girl lines up for the tournament, and some other ladies in line harass her: did she think this was merely an idol audition? But the girl, Briandchateau, quickly transforms into a pink, chubby warrior known as Ribrian, who proceeds to blow her opponents up with her “Pretty Cannon” attack.

In U10, Kuru (the U10 angel) has their ten 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 U10 warriors’ dance has the Omni-Kings excited, but the Great Priest notes that there’s trouble brewing in U7…

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 Champa’s tournament, and now this (not to mention the infamous “pudding incident”). But while Beerus stews, Goku has already left…

Only four hours and ten minutes remain until the Tournament of Power!

Episode 92 Summary

Goku arrives at Mr. Satan’s house, where Satan explains that despite all his efforts, he cannot awaken Buu. Normally Buu only needs a second or so of sleep, but when he falls into a deep slumber like this, he’s out for a whole two months. And they’ve only got about three hours to go until the tournament!

Off in Universe 6, Toppo meets up with Kahseral, who has just completed his “urgent mission” saving a cat for some kids (these kids are thrilled to see Toppo in the flesh). Toppo and Kahseral discuss having some of the up-and-coming Troopers defend the universe during the hour in which they will be at the tournament. Toppo has seen via the interplanetary network that the main warriors have all gathered and begun training for the tournament.

Back on Earth, Mr. Satan volunteers to enter the tournament in Buu’s place, but quickly changes his tune once Goku points out the main tournament will have fighters even more incredible than the ones at the exhibition match. Meanwhile, Beerus bemoans Buu falling asleep at such a critical time, though Whis thinks this is like the pot calling the kettle black.

In Universe 3, the gods visit Nigrisshi, their universe’s greatest “restructuring warrior”, to gain his help in winning the tournament. Nigrisshi shows off one of his enhanced warriors, the (seemingly robotic) Narirama, who’s equipped with an iron claw to keep from falling from the arena, a suction cup in case his arm comes off, and other gadgets. Nigrisshi is also working on restructuring other warriors for the tournament; together they’re sure to come out on top!

Kuririn, No.18, and Marron arrive at Capsule Corporation. Kuririn is happy to see Tenshinhan again, but wonders where Muten Roshi is (apparently he’s off finishing his “training” with Puar). Tenshinhan and Piccolo explain to Kuririn about the trouble with Buu, and Kuririn suggests they simply enter with nine warriors. However, Shin warns that since the Omni-King specified ten warriors per team, they’ll have to meet that number.

Beerus demands that Gohan, as team leader, resolve this problem. Gohan is confident his father will awaken Buu, but if not, he’ll take responsibility and find someone else to be the 10th member. Kuririn offers to help too; after all, he wants that 10 million zenny! But once he mentions the prize money, it quickly becomes apparent it was all a lie on Goku’s part. Meanwhile, up at Dende’s temple, Vegeta smashes his way out of the Room of Spirit and Time.

In Universe 6, Cabba and Cauilfla meet out in the wastelands of some planet, while Kale hides nearby and watches them. Cabba shows off his Super Saiyan form again, and Cauilfla is eager for him to teach her how transform like that. But Cabba’s not too confident he can teach the secret, since he only just learned it himself from Vegeta not too long ago.

Cabba tries to get Caulifla angry in order to trigger the Super Sayain transformation (using some very mild insults), but it doesn’t work. Caulifla asks Cabba is he’s always angry when he transforms, but Cabba says no, now that he’s used to it he just transforms by concentrating power in his back (between his shoulder blades). So Caulifla tries that approach, and it works. Cabba is suitably impressed; Caulifla really is gifted!

Cabba teachers her how to revert to normal (by releasing the tingling sensation from her back), and tells her the transformation will be less of a strain once she gets used to it. Caulifla agrees to enter the tournament, but wants to bring Kale along too. Kale comes out of hiding and Caulifla introduces her to Cabba: Kale is another Saiyan, and Cauilfla’s protégé. Though Kale doubts she can become Super Saiyan, Caulifla encourages her to try.

Goku returns to Capsule Corporation from Mr. Satan’s house, saying that waking up Buu proved impossible. But that’s not the only problem: it looks like Kuririn and No.18 might not enter now that Goku’s lie is exposed! Goku offers to pay Kuririn out of his own pocket, since he got all that money from Mr. Satan, but Vegeta points out that Chi-Chi keeps control over that money. Goku next asks Bulma for a loan, but she turns him down.

Ultimately though, Kuririn isn’t really upset about the money. Rather, he’s upset that Goku lied and tried to hide that their universe was in danger of being destroyed. While he understands Goku and Gohan’s motives for wanting to keep that under wraps, he and Goku have been through too much together to keep secrets like that. While Kuririn is now nervous to enter the tournament knowing that their universe hangs in the balance, he still thinks Goku should have told him that from the start. 

Beerus orders Kuririn to enter and use any means necessary to remain in the ring until the very end, and threatens to destroy him on the spot if he refuses. Kuririn quickly agrees to enter, but he thinks No.18 will probably still refuse without prize money. Bulma finally agrees to foot the bill and give prize money to whoever wants it…provided they make sure and win the tournament.

Though that problem has been cleared up, they still lack a 10th member. Beerus chews them out for only selecting warriors from Earth despite the vastness of the universe. It’s all their fault for squashing Freeza’s army! Hearing this, Goku is inspired: Freeza! They can get Freeza for their team!

Only three hours left until the Tournament of Power.

Episode 93

Everyone is shocked to hear Goku suggest they recruit Freeza as the 10th team member. Goku has heard from Dende that Freeza’s spirit is still in Hell; he still hasn’t reformed and been purified (which is a real hassle for Enma Daio). But Goku doesn’t plan on resurrecting him with the dragon balls. Instead, he can just ask Uranai Baba to bring him back for 24 hours, like she did for him and Vegeta.

Shin protests that Freeza surely won’t be cooperative, but Goku thinks he will, if the alternative is their universe being destroyed. Vegeta is confident that they don’t need Freeza’s help to win the tournament, so Goku asks Whis about their chances. Though Whis isn’t that informed about the other universes, he has heard that there is a universe with a God of Destruction even stronger than Beerus…and a mortal even stronger than that God of Destruction (Beerus retorts that he merely lost to that God of Destruction at arm-wrestling one time). 

Hearing this, Kuririn thinks that perhaps they do need Freeza after all. Besides, Goku is sure that if Freeza tries to backstab them, he and Vegeta can put a stop to it. With that settled, Goku teleports off to Enma Daio’s place so he can go talk to Freeza directly (nearby, a strange man with a hat watches him leave). At Emna Daio’s place in the afterlife, Goku informs him about the upcoming tournament and his desire to recruit Freeza. Enma agrees to let Uranai Baba revive Freeza for 24 hours, but requests that if Freeza goes on a rampage, Goku take care of him someplace other than Earth (that way, Enma won’t have to deal with him).

Over in Universe 6, Caulifla is still having trouble getting Kale to become a Super Saiyan. Though Kale is convinced she doesn’t have it in her, Caulifla tells her to concentrate her power in the middle of her back. Caulifla and Cabba both show off the transformation for Kale, but Kale still can’t manage it. Next Caulifla explains the process in more depth: anger can also trigger the transformation! She tries to insult Kale to set her off, but her heart’s just not in it. After all, Kale is her precious protégé!

Caulifla has Cabba try insulting Kale, but she gets mad at him when he causes Kale to cry. Kale continues to cry, feeling useless and like a burden to Caulifla, and her feelings cause her to transform at last. Except…Kale’s Super Saiyan transformation is a little different. She becomes incredibly big and muscular, and her ki rises so much that Cabba gets worried. The transformation complete, Kale points at Cabba and tells him that she’ll finish him off first.

In Universe 4, the God of Destruction Quitela listens to a report from his spy Ganos (the strange man with the hat from earlier). Quitela is amused to hear that Beerus is apparently so hard up for warriors that he’s forced to recruit from among the dead, but Ganos is worried that this dead warrior might be a threat to their universe, since the people in U7 talked about him like he was quite formidable. Now Quitela wants to hear more about this warrior.

Back in the afterlife, an ogre drives Goku out to Freeza’s personal Hell (the field of flowers previously seen in Resurrection “F”). Goku goes up and greets Freeza, who is still in a cocoon hanging from a tree. While Goku doesn’t think this field looks so bad, Freeza claims that for him this is the worst Hell of all. Goku offers to get Freeza out of there for 24 hours, but Freeza is suspicious.

In Universe 6, Caulifla is amazed at Kale’s unleashed power, but Cabba is having a hard time as Kale rampages around. Cabba speculates that seeing him and Caulifla getting along has caused Kale to lose it, so Caulifla tells Kale to not get the wrong idea: she’s not the sort of woman to “fall” for Cabba so easily. Hearing this, Kale calms down and reverts to her base form. Caulifla catches the unconscious Kale, and is glad to see that they’ve found a great new team member (Cabba seems a bit more nervous).

In Hell, Goku cuts Freeza down from the tree. While Freeza is interested to hear about the Tournament of Power, he at first refuses to enter. Goku calmly accepts this and starts to leave, but Freeza says he was only joking. He promises to enter, but on one condition: if they win the tournament and their universe survives, Goku must use the Dragon Balls to wish Freeza back to life. 

While Goku is reluctant to accept that condition, Freeza assures him that he will grow even stronger, and he wants to spar with Goku again sometime. Surely Goku wants to see his further evolution? Goku is impressed at Freeza’s skill in taking advantage of his weakness (his desire to fight strong opponents). He tells Freeza that the top warrior in the tournament will receive the Super Dragon Balls as a reward, so Freeza can win those and use them to revive himself.

However, Freeza points out that even if their team wins, he might not be the team member to win the Super Dragon Balls. With that in mind, he is content to just use the Earth’s Dragon Balls. Goku agrees, though gathering them might take a while. Freeza is disappointed to hear that the tournament rules forbid killing one’s opponent, but he’ll have to make do.

With that, Goku leaves Hell and goes to see Uranai Baba. She has already heard from Enma Daio about Goku’s idea. While she is not happy about having to bring back someone as bad as Freeza, the circumstances leave her little choice. Goku offers her his button for summoning Omni-King as a reward, but she doesn’t want it; it’s too dangerous! Goku promises to get her something else, and takes off. Meanwhile, in Universe 4, Quitela has come up with a perfect plan for taking down Universe 7…

Only an hour and a half remains until the Tournament of Power.

Well looks like Goku has successfully resurrected Frieza with the promise that he will use the Dragon Balls to resurrect the cosmic tyrant once more. But U9 has been tricked into sending assassins to try and kill Frieza by U4. Unfortunately the assassins are really not equipped to deal with the Golden Emperor of the Universe!!!

Episode 95

Freeza and Goku are surrounded by a gang of assassins sent by the gods of Universe 9. Goku figures they come from another universe (though he doesn’t know which), and the assassins brag about how their universe is tough and hardcore, unlike the softies in Universe 7. Freeza thinks this other universe sounds like a splendid place…

Though Freeza has powered up into his Golden form, Goku wonders if he’ll be alright like that. After all, there’s barely any time left until the tournament, and that form uses up a lot of stamina. Freeza explains that enduring the “tortures” of his Hell (all those stuffed animal parades and whatnot) have honed his mental concentration. Now his energy control skills have greatly improved, making him into the “true Golden Freeza”, combining the ultimate in intensity with the delicacy to avoid even disturbing the surface of water.

With that, Freeza begins mercilessly killing the assassins. Before long, Goku urges him to stop, but Freeza figures that killing them here is no different than defeating them at the tournament, since losing at the tournament will mean their entire universe’s destruction. In a panic, the assassins try and take Uranai Baba hostage, but Goku stops them and tells Baba to hide inside her palace.

As Goku and Freeza butt heads, the doglike boss assassin recalls how Rou (the U9 Kaioshin) instructed him beforehand to maintain the cover story that he was going after Goku and Freeza purely of his will. At the same time, the U9 God of Destruction Sidra entrusted him with a ball of “destruction energy” capable of harming anyone. Those hit by this energy will utterly cease to exist, and not even pass on to the afterlife.

The dog boss now tries to sneak attack Freeza (who is still talking with Goku), but Freeza is already on to him, and arrogantly orders the dog to throw his attack while he leaves himself wide upon. The dog throws the ball, which Freeza easily dodges, then blows up with his own energy when it boomerangs back at him. However, this first energy ball was just a fake, and the dog produces the real ball of destruction energy…which Freeza simply blasts out of his hand, where it seemingly explodes.

However, the dog can still remotely control the energy ball, and he brings it up from under the water directly underneath Freeza, catching him by surprise. As Freeza struggles against the ball, its energy envelops him. It seems like Freeza has had it…but he’s just joking. With great effort, he manages to concentrate the energy around him back into a small ball which he holds safely in hand. The dog can’t believe his eyes, and is quickly shot down by Freeza.

Goku is greatly impressed with Freeza’s feat, and wonders where that energy ball came from. Freeza thinks that such pure energy probably came from some god, so odds are another universe’s God of Creation or Destruction wants them out of the way. Goku warns the remaining assassins that Universe 7 won’t run or hide; they’ll settle things fair and square at the tournament! But while Goku is shouting this, Freeza catches him off-guard and hits him with the ball of destruction energy.

Over in the World of Void, the Great Priest has finally completed the arena for the Tournament of Power. The two Omni-Kings are both very pleased with it, and give the Great Priest a candy as a reward. Back on Earth, Freeza taunts Goku for being naïve enough to let down his guard. Freeza advises Goku to escape from that energy the way he did. But try as he might, Goku can’t manage it, and Freeza wonders if he has grown too strong.

As Goku continues to struggle, Freeza confronts one of the remaining assassins: he wishes to speak with their universe’s gods. At first the assassin refuses to speak, but he changes his tune after Freeza riddles him with energy beams. Still, Freeza wants him to keep quiet a little longer, so that he can enjoy torturing him some more. Desperate, the remaining assassins now all attack Freeza together.

Off in Universe 9, Rou and Sidra wonder what’s taking their assassins so long; it’s almost time to leave for the tournament! They receive a call on their crystal ball, but are surprised to find Freeza on the other end. He’s borrowed a communicator from the assassins, and now knows their whole scheme. However, rather than rat out U9 to the Omni-Kings, Freeza proposes that he join the U9 team. After all, with Goku caught in the destruction energy, U7 has no hope of winning. If U9 will resurrect him, he’ll be sure to serve them well in the tournament.

Sidra and Rou can’t believe Freeza would be so callous as to betray his entire universe. While it seems there’s no explicit rule against recruiting warriors from other universes, Rou thinks even if they recruit Freeza, he’ll be sure to betray them too eventually, and he’s not sure even Sidra could stop him. While Freeza watches the two argue via the communicator, Beerus and Whis arrive. Realizing he’s out of time, Freeza destroys the communicator.

Beerus blows the destruction energy away from Goku, and it explodes harmlessly. He and Whis came since they were wondering what was holding Goku and Freeza up. Recognizing the destruction energy, Beerus wonders what happened. Whis thinks Freeza was perhaps trying to gather intel on another universe, but Freeza remains evasive. Either way, Goku says it was all his fault for forgetting what an evil guy Freeza was.

Thinking to himself, Freeza realizes that this tournament is the perfect opportunity to manipulate even the gods; he’ll eventually gain the upper hand against Beerus and get the last laugh! Meanwhile, Goku asks Whis for just one minute to spar against Freeza. Their match will end once one of them lands a punch. Goku says if he wins, Freeza will have to bury the hatchet and be their teammate in the tournament…but Freeza says if he wins, Goku will have to let him do as he wants.

Freeza has spent his time in Hell endlessly fighting simulated battles against Goku in his mind, and is totally certain of his chances of victory. Whis blows the starting whistle, and Goku and Freeza power up and charge each other (with Goku turning Super Saiyan Blue). They punch each other square in the face at the same time, and fall exhausted down into the water. It’s a tie! 

Goku reflects that Freeza’s not the only one who’s improved; while Freeza’s been in Hell, he’s been fighting strong guys from other universes. Goku vows to stop Freeza from killing any more bystanders, but Freeza won’t take orders from Goku. As Beerus and Whis suspected, this sparring match has by no means settled the score between the two.

With the Tournament of Power about to begin, Goku, Freeza, Beerus, and Whis join the rest of the U7 team at Capsule Corporation…

So we are finally at the big tournament. Some new rules are in, the arena is designed so that each fighter experiences the unique gravity of their home worlds and ki fly is not allowed but people with a natural ability to fly are.

Also the arena is made out of a metal hard then the hardest known metal in the dragon ball multiverse.

 

Here are all the fighters.

the arrangement bugs me. it goes from bottom left :- 2, 3, 4, 7, 6, 9, 10, 11

if the top two were switched around, it would be better.

Excellent work.

All the same, this is deeply worrying. The Almighty is playing a game to decide which universes he will destroy. Heptillions of lives are at stake and no matter what, most of them will end. Is there a way out of this that does not involve sacrificing the majority of living beings in this multiverse?

As nice as the praise is, I must admit I did not make this. It was merely passed on to me by someone over at Kanzenshuu.

Also I think they are set up that way because of the connection of each universe. They were all made in pairs.

6&7, 4&9, 3&10 and 2&11

When the Almighty is a spoiled child....I dont think so. Also you cannot use the Super Dragon Balls since that would just piss him off.

But I did have one idea, you cannot wish to restore the universes but you could wish everyone and their planets to the winning universes. Zen-Oh is doing this because looking after all these universes is a pain (Funny, a child hating hard work), so if you move everyone to just one universes it might be enough to appease him since the result is the same.  

But still, all the Gods of Destruction of the losing universes would still dye. But its better then losing countless numbers of innocent lives.

Episode 97

With the warriors all assembled, the Great Priest explains the tournament rules once again. The time limit will be 100 tak (about 48 Earth minutes), marked by the gradual descent of the pillar in the center of the tournament arena. Killing and the use of weapons or healing items are prohibited, and contestants are eliminated by being knocked out of the ring. Flying or floating is prohibited unless the contestant has wings.

The explanation over, Gohan advises the U7 fighters to rely on teamwork: they should guard each other’s backs and use superior numbers to take on opponents. However, Vegeta hates this plan, and Freeza seems uninterested. Elsewhere, Kale is intimidated by all the tough-looking fighters around, but Caulifla says she can win easily if she just cuts loose. Beerus shouts to his team about the importance of team work, and gets mocked by Quitela.

Finally, the Great Priest declares the start of the Tournament of Power, and all hell breaks loose as warriors rush at each other and begin fighting. Goku spots Toppo and goes off on his own to fight him, but gets intercepted by U4’s Ganos. Back with the other U7 fighters, Gohan calls out to Goku and again stresses the importance of teamwork, but Vegeta, No.17, No.18, and Freeza all likewise go off to fight on their own. Gohan is disheartened to see his strategy fall apart so soon, but Muten Roshi tells him not to worry about it.

Meanwhile, the robot-like U3 fighter Narirama enters his “Super Survival Mode”, a spin attack that sends U2’s Ribrianne and many others flying. Soon though, Hit and Basil step in and each take out one of Narirama’s arms. Basil goes on to kick U10’s winged fighter Lilibeu out of the arena. Lilibeu screams as she plummets down into the void, but suddenly finds herself sitting in the stadium seating next to the U10 gods (it turns out this is what happens to fighters when they get knocked out of bounds). 

The Omni-Kings pulls out their “godPad” tablets they use to track the tournament’s progress, and mark Lilibeu as eliminated. U10’s God of Destruction Ramoosh yells at Lilibeu for getting knocked out despite having wings, and is ashamed that one of his universe’s fighters was the first to be eliminated, but Gowasu remains optimistic. Gohan, Piccolo, Tenshinhan, Kuririn, and Roshi are surrounded by Lavenda and a horde of other enemy fighters. Though they stick to Gohan’s plan and guard each other’s backs, their special attacks prove ineffective against their opponents. Basil continues to fight against U10’s Napapa, a pig-man sumo wrestler, but Napapa manages to repel Basil’s energy blasts and avoid a ring-out. Ramoosh brags about Napapa’s skills at “Dohyodoru”, a U10 martial art (essentially just sumo wrestling).

Still fighting Ganos, Goku suddenly spots Toppo, but Toppo is attacked by U10’s Murichim. Next Goku sees Jiren, who is just standing there. Regardless, the Omni-Kings can tell Jiren is someone to keep an eye on. As Goku sizes Jiren up, he is caught off guard and grabbed by another fighter, U4’s Nink. As Goku struggles to break free, Nink backs up to the edge of the arena. He plans on going out of bounds and taking Goku with him! Nink is fine being eliminated if it means getting rid of a powerful enemy like Goku. 

As Nink reaches the edge of the arena, Goku suddenly becomes Super Saiyan Blue and breaks free of his hold. Nink falls down into the void, but Goku manages to grab onto the edge of the arena and pulls himself up (reverting from Blue to his base form immediately afterwards). Beerus chews Goku out for not becoming Blue immediately, but Goku explains that he wanted to conserve his power. Though he’s back in the game, Goku is soon surrounded by a group of enemies, including all three members of Trio de Dangers. Regardless, he’s still itching for a fight.

47 minutes remain until the end of the Tournament of Power!

A battle royale rather than elimination bouts? That surprises me.

Potentially.

Gohan is the official team captain of U7. Toppo is the leader of the Pride Troopers and since he whole team is made up of them, he's is obviously team leader. Brianne de Chateau (who turns into Ribrianne) is the leader of the Kamikaze Fireballs from U2, however its unknown if thats everyone on her team or just the girls with her. But she is in a leader position and the most likely candidate. Nigrisshi of U3,  Bergamo of U9 and Murichim of U10 all apper to be or did hold leadership roles in smaller groups so again their the most likely team leaders.

The odd one out is Hit. We have no evidence he is leading yet.

Episode 98

Goku has narrowly managed to avoid a ring-out, but is now surrounded by Trio de Dangers and other U9 warriors. U9’s Kaioshin Rou taunts him from the stands: it’s time to pay back their grudge from the exhibition match! Goku though is pleased to have a rematch against U9, particularly since during their last fight U9’s warrior Bergamot fought by absorbing Goku’s power, rather than using his own. As Goku battles Bergamot and the others, Shin wonders why he stays in his regular form and doesn’t use Super Saiyan Blue, but Whis explains that Blue uses up a lot of stamina. In this long tournament where healing items are forbidden, Goku has got to properly pace himself to ensure he keeps on fighting to the end.

As Champa cheers on Trio de Dangers (since without Goku, U7 will be in a weakened position), Beerus reminds Goku that all he needs to do to win is knock them out of bounds. Lavenda covers his fists in poison, and all three members of Trio de Dangers charge at Goku, who fights them off and covers himself in a glowing barrier. This barrier protects Goku from Lavenda’s poison, and was something he and Gohan thought up after Gohan’s match with Lavenda. Elsewhere, Freeza beats up on Napapa and sees from afar that Goku is enjoying himself. Freeza decides to enjoy himself too, and goes after U9’s gargoyle-like Roselle.

Goku continues to have a hard time as Trio de Dangers jointly attack him from three different directions, a technique Rou dubs their “Dangers Triangle”. Annoyed, Vegeta jumps in and asks why Goku is screwing around, but Goku protests that fighting them is tricky since he can’t sense their ki. Rou now orders all of U9’s warriors to team up against Goku and Vegeta. Whis is sure this shouldn’t be a challenge for the two of them if they worked together…but he thinks they probably won’t. Indeed, Vegeta quickly takes off on his own to battle Lavenda, while Goku takes on Basil, effectively ending their “Dangerous Triangle” combo. Vegeta likewise shields himself in a barrier from Lavenda’s poison, but is caught off guard by the U9 female warrior Hop’s claws.

Though Goku is concerned for Vegeta, he has his own problems to worry about. The dragon-like Chappil allows Goku a free shot at him, but Goku’s punches doesn’t faze him at all, due to his iron skin. Champa continues to cheer on U9 in the hope that they can eliminate Goku and Vegeta, while Beerus notes that two of U9’s warriors have yet to join the fight. They’re waiting for something, but what?

Vegeta has his hands full guarding against Lavenda’s poison, when suddenly one of the remaining U9 warriors, Hyssop, fires an “absolute zero” freezing attack that freezes Vegeta’s right hand. Hop rushes forward to slash Vegeta, but he dodges out of the way just in time and she slashes Lavenda by accident. With the U9 warriors distracted by this mishap, Goku takes this chance to turn into regular Super Saiyan and knocks Chappil and Comfrey (a green U9 warrior) out of the ring, while Vegeta likewise rings out Hop.

Next, Vegeta’s left hand is wrapped up in web by the red U9 warrior Oregano, but he goes Super Saiyan and knocks Oregano and Hyssop out of the ring. The bunny-like U9 warrior Sorrel has also been beaten (apparently by No.18), and Roselle loses when he flees the arena in an attempt to get away from Freeza. Now only Trio de Dangers remain out of all U9’s team! Rou yells at them not to lose, but the three are having a tough time against the Super Saiyan Goku and Vegeta, and find themselves cornered together on the edge of the arena. They charge up a joint beam attack, “Triangle Danger Beam”, but Vegeta and Goku go Super Saiyan Blue and counter with a Final Flash and Kamehameha, sending Trio de Dangers out of bounds.

Now U9’s entire team has been beaten! The Omni-Kings happily check off all the warriors on their godPads, while the Great Priest announces that U9 itself will accordingly be annihilated. As Rou screams in protest, the Omni-Kings join their hands and in a flash all the U9 warriors and gods vanish, except for their angel Mojito (who seems bemused more than anything). Whis uses his staff to confirm that U9 itself is completely gone. The Omni-Kings have destroyed an entire universe!

I thought it was a pretty good episode. I figured that white aura was nothing more than a barrier, even though everyone speculated it being his new form. Honestly from the opening it just looks like he has completely mastered Kaio-Ken, rather than achieved a new form. Now if you're going to talk about the Dragon Ball Super manga, I would say his SS Blue appears to have been mastered, based on his fight with Merged Zamasu. To be honest I'm not really expecting any new specific transformation for a while. He can still power-up but will only be able to go so far, as Vegeta mentioned that they're already at the limits of their strength. I would really love to see more of the original Super Saiyan God (red form) than blue. While I enjoy blue it doesn't seem like red matters. Yet, in contrast it would save them stamina since blue drains pretty drastically, according to Goku.

 

About the episode, I really thought it was great. That ending sure was ominous though. Not only did it look like the angel (Mojito) was smiling after his universe got destroyed but also the Grand Priest. I feel like there's more going on behind the scenes. And after Goku requested the tournament it was the perfect opportunity for them to take action against Zeno, or use his powers to rid the remaining universes from existence. Either way it's definitely getting more interesting with each new episode!

Episode 99.

The warriors are shocked into silence by the destruction of Universe 9. Goku notes that this is now the second time he and Vegeta have seen the Omni-King wipe out a universe (the first time being Future Trunks’ world). Goku reiterates that winning this tournament is the only way to ensure the survival of their own universe, and Vegeta vows that he will be the last man standing and obtain the Super Dragon Balls. The U9 angel Mohito regrets that his universe was the first to go, but thinks it was only natural, while the U1 Kaioshin Anato explains that thanks to Goku’s suggestion to have this tournament, the low-ranking universes that would have been erased anyway now have this chance to win their survival. Yet the losing universes will still have to be destroyed as a necessary sacrifice to keep the universes’ levels balanced.

Vados teases Champa that they must soon say farewell, making him irritated that Vados doesn’t have to worry about getting erased. Kuririn tries to calm himself down, and Gohan makes sure the other team members are OK after this big shock. Off on his own, Freeza notes the disparity between the Omni-Kings’ cute looks and their universe-destroying antics, and vows to one day be top dog over both of them. No.17 tells No.18 that their infinite energy means they will never tire out, which gives them the advantage in a fight like this.

The battle starts up again, and Vegeta picks out Hit as his next opponent. He’s got a score to settle! But as Vegeta rushes in to attack, Botamo suddenly blocks him. Botamo and Champa both taunt Vegeta that his attacks will have no effect, and even trying to throw Botamo won’t work this time, but Vegeta calmly ties Botamo’s rubbery body up in knots. As Vegeta goes to throw Botamo out of the arena, Magetta steps in and saves Botamo. Meanwhile, Kuririn, Gohan, Piccolo, Tenshinhan, and Muten Roshi are attacked by the U10 bird warrior Jium. Gohan’s strategy is for their group to avoid fighting unnecessarily, but they will still beat anyone who comes after them. They quickly take Jium out with three Kienzans from Kuririn and a Kamehameha from Roshi.

Vegeta tries to weaken Magetta with insults like he did at the last tournament, but this time U6 is prepared: Botamo sits on Magetta’s shoulders and covers his ears, thereby creating the mighty “Bota-Magetta”. As Vegeta struggles against this tricky opponent, 18 easily beats up on the U4 wolfman Shosa. She seemingly goes too far though, apparently killing her opponent. However, Shosa is simply playing possum, and catches 18 off-guard with an attack that sends her flying. Before 18 goes out of the arena, Kuririn jumps in and grabs her, then fires a ki blast to propel them back onto solid ground.

18 vows revenge against Shosa, but Shosa advises her to give up now before he spoils her good looks. Kuririn and 18 decide to team up and use the technique they practiced, a ki ball they pass between them that gets faster and bigger over time. When it finally hits, it knocks Shosa out of bounds. Beerus applauds the couple on their teamwork, but before they can celebrate too much, Kuririn is attacked by another U4 warrior, the vulpine Majora. 18 knocks Majora back, and Kuririn gives her sunglasses (which he stole from Roshi) before launching his Taiyo-Ken x100 technique.

However, Majora is completely unaffected by this light, and kicks both Kuririn and 18. It turns out that he is already blind, and relies on his sense of smell to track his opponents. Though 18 is nervous, now that Kuririn knows Majora’s secret he is confident he can win. He’s got a strategy! Kuririn and Majora start to fight one-on-one, and Kuririn takes off his shoe and hits Majora in the face with it. The shoe’s stench blocks Majora’s sense of smell, distracting him long enough for Kuririn to knock him out of bounds with a Kamehameha. That makes three warriors down for U4! 

18 isn’t happy about this method of winning, and promises to wash Kuririn’s shoes when they get home. Kuririn is in high spirits, but while he’s rejoicing over his victory, Frost steps in and quickly knocks him out of bounds, then runs away before 18 can counterattack. As Kuririn is teleported into the benches with the U7 gods, Beerus berates him for getting carried away, while Shin says he did his best (though his eyes tell a different story). Now all Kuririn can do is cheer on his teammates.

43 minutes remain in the Tournament of Power.
