Will Toppo Going God Of Destruction Eliminate Him In 'Dragon Ball Super'?

The preview for Episode 125 of Dragon Ball Super teased a godly transformation for Universe 11's Toppo that Universe 7 is going to have a tough time dealing with. But will this transformation follow the rules of the Tournament of Power?

The title for Episode 125 of the series is "Majestic! Advent of the God of Destruction, Toppo!!," so fans won't exactly be surprised to see Toppo's final transformation into a God of Destruction. But fans are wondering about his eligibility for the Tournament of Power if this is indeed the case.

Gods of Destruction aren't allowed to compete in the Tournament of Power, and rather than just gain the ability to use the God Ki, it seems that the actual title for the episode (and the new look for the foe that the Ki gives him) implies that Toppo becomes a full God of Destruction.

If he does become a God of Destruction, will this eliminate him from the tournament? Although there's no explicit rule in the series, it does seem a bit unfair to Universe 7 to fight a God. There is also still a lingering question of whether or not the two Zenos would allow for this since they prefer fun over the rules, really.

Seeing that the synopsis for the episode teases a near defeat for Toppo from Android 17 and Freeza, Toppo could be in for a loss either way:

"It looked as if Toppo had been defeated by the combined assault of No.17 and the rest of Universe 7! However, right as he prepares for the worst, something strange starts happening to Toppo's body?!"
