Over on Dragon Ball Super, it looks like Goku has managed to irk the wrong opponent. After facing Bergamo of Universe 9 in an exhibition match, Goku found himself facing a new fighter thanks to Universe 11. The world issued a challenge to Goku through Toppo, an immensely powerful fighter who is a candidate to become a new God of Destruction. Known for his keen sense of justice, Toppo challenges Goku to a match to discover whether Goku is a villain which leaves the rest of Universe 7’s representatives stunned. And, when the two men finally get to battle, Goku finds he has met a formidable match.
Thanks to Weekly Shonen Jump, fans can read up on the synopsis for Dragon Ball Super’s next episode. The anime will return on March 19th with a new episode titled “I Won't Forgive Son Goku! The Warrior of Justice Toppo's Intrusion!!” You can read the synopsis for the episode below:
“The Warrior of Justice Toppo has descended in front of Goku! As Goku and the others have achieved victory for Universe 7, the Universe 11 warrior Toppo suddenly appears! Toppo rages about not forgiving Goku, but…?!”
“Omni-King This Week: showing interest in Goku and Toppo's battle! The Omni-King has his interest piqued by Goku and Toppo's battle, and accepts a proposal from Universe 11's gods to have a special match.”
Looking at the synopsis, the two seem to focus less on fighting and more on bolstering their arguments. But, in a different synopsis by Animedia, the episode is said to “show off close combat with neither side giving an inch.” However, before the two warriors can display their full strength, their match is stopped by the Great Priest.
After Goku and his Universe 7 team soundly took down Universe 9, fans are encouraged to hear another universe can challenge the Saiyan squad. In the past, longtime fans have complained no villain can match the might of Goku’s collective forces, but the multiverse tournament has pitted the group against new and untested opponents.
So, if Goku knows what’s best for him and his home, he’ll make sure to recruit the best warriors possible for the Tournament of Power.
