…20 years after Goku went gold for the first time at the end of the Frieza Saga in Dragonball Z, the first FEMALE Super Saiyan is now canon. For those of you who are watching Dragonball Super for the first time on Toonami, you probably only know about what I revealed in my previous blog post about the first two Arcs (Battle of Gods and Resurrection F). I’m going to talk about the Martial Arts Tournament between Universe 6 and 7, which contains major spoilers and takes place after the Resurrection F Arc.
After the events of Resurrection F, Goku and Vegeta are trainining with Whis on Beerus’ planet. While there they meet Beerus’ brother Champa, who is the God of Destruction for Universe 6, which is paired with Universe 7. There are 12 Universes and each are paired so that that sum of both numbers combined is 13 (1 and 12, 2 and 11 and so on).
Beerus and Champa don’t exactly get along. Since they’re both Gods of Destruction, if they were to actually fight both of their universes would be destroyed. That’s when Goku proposes Universes 6 and 7 have a martial arts tournament. The prize: The planet-sized Super Dragon Balls.Beerus used the wish to restore Universe 6’s Earth, which no longer existed. Had Universe 7 lost, Universe 7’s Earth would go to Universe 6.
Here is a picture of Universe 6’s team:
Now here’s another picture of the so far unnamed Female Super Saiyan from Team 6:
Thanks to this still, we know for sure she’s definitely from Universe 6: The male Saiyan Cabba goes Super Saiyan for the first time during the tournament while fighting Vegeta (which his help, actually). Frost, who is the same race as Frieza is revealed to be as bad as his Universe 6 equivalent after he cheated during the tournament. The Female Saiyan is presumably his replacement. She bears a striking resumblance to the non-canon Broly while transformed, who also has the same green-yellow aura. She is presumably Universe 6’s most powerful Saiyan. We’ll find out for sure when the Universal Survival Arc begins.
Speaking of: After the Future Trunks Arc, Goku hired Hit, who is the deadliest Assassin across all 12 Universes to kill him. He did it so Hit can fight him at full power (Hit wasn’t allowed to kill during the previous tournament). Presumably, the contract will be on hold during the tournament. As was revealed when they fought on Earth, Hit is alot more powerful than he let on during their previous battle.
