Dragon Ball Super's newest villain has immediately caught the attention of fans as Planet Eater Moro not only seems to be getting stronger as his fight with Goku and Vegeta continues, but he's also beginning to show fragments of a personality fans have been missing from the villains lately. As he's growing stronger and closer to reaching his prime, he's begun to toy with Goku and Vegeta.
This, of course, includes Dragon Ball's usual barbs and jabs, but Moro's power to back them up increases the sting tenfold. Especially when Moro tells Goku and Vegeta that they were never a threat to begin with, and essentially burning the entire Saiyan race in the process.
In Chapter 46 of the series, Goku and Vegeta are at their weakest point yet as Moro's gaining strength. He's even managed to change his body into a more youthful state, and absorbs or counters every one of Goku and Vegeta's attacks. After wiping them out with a huge ki blast, Moro says their resistance was surprising as beings like Goku and Vegeta did not exist in his time.
He mentioned how the only one who managed to stop him was the Lord of Lords (now resting within Majin Buu's body) who stole his abilities. After delivering a swift knee to Goku's ribs, he grabs both Goku and Vegeta by the necks and says that he ought to mention that they were never a threat to him. That he, in fact, welcomes them as they add to his power.
Rubbing further salt in the wound, Moro completely drains Goku and Vegeta of their energy and implies that they'll die not too long after having it drained. This blend of fearsome power, cocky attitude, and mysterious abilities are quickly cementing Moro as a strong villain that fans hope stays as strong as the newest arc of the series continues.
