'Dragon Ball Super' Confirms Moro's Ultimate Wish

Dragon Ball Super's newest villain has been shrouded in mystery as the manga has built up Planet Eater Moro as a dangerous presence that Vegeta and Goku should be wary of.

As the arc takes these three to New Namek, the latest chapter has revealed why Planet Eater Moro is chasing after the Namekian Dragon Balls in the first place. He wants to return to his prime.

As Vegeta continues to fight with Moro, Moro actually falls for Vegeta's big ploy in Chapter 45. Vegeta actually lies to Moro and hides his power, getting him to trust in Vegeta enough to reveal his plans. Hoping to work with Vegeta, Moro reveals that he is indeed searching for the Dragon Balls. When Vegeta asks what he'll wish for, Moro laughs and says that Vegeta would have never survived against him at full power.

Moro explains that at his prime, he would've eaten New Namek in an instant but his long imprisonment has left him in a decrepit state. So he wants to wish for a return to his full strength, his prime before he was put in prison. This type of Dragon Ball wish has been featured in the franchise before, such as the non-canon Lord Slug successfully attaining this.

But with the magic Moro possesses that continues to throw Vegeta and Goku for a loop, there's no way they can let him gather the Dragon Balls and get his wish. But given the twists already happening within this arc, Moro could very well have another magic power to help him get what he wants.

Dragon Ball Super currently airs its English dub on Adult Swim during the Toonami programming block Saturday evenings at 11:00 p.m. It is also available to stream on Funimation and Amazon Video. The Japanese language release of the series is complete, and available to stream on FunimationNOW and Crunchyroll. The manga has chapters that can currently be read for free thanks to Viz Media. Dragon Ball Super: Broly is currently in theaters as well.

If you wanted to catch up with the English dub of the series, there's actually a pretty nifty way to do so. You can currently stream the first 91 episodes of the dub on FunimationNOW, which brings the series from the beginning all the way to when the the universes began gathering their fighters for the Tournament of Power. It's not too far off from where the Toonami run of the series is at currently.
