The Dragon Ball universe is the universe teeming with creativity and intricacy, where even the names of characters hold a deeper significance. Among the pantheon of mighty beings, the Gods of Destruction stand out not only for their immense power but also for their cleverly crafted names that pay homage to the world of beverages. Let’s explore the delightful origins of these names and the subtle references they make.
All Easter Eggs in Dragon Ball’s Gods of Destruction
1) Iwan and Awamo
The tradition of naming Gods of Destruction after beverages continues with Iwan and Awamo, the God of Destruction and attendant of Universe 1, respectively.

These names infuse the characters with cultural richness.
2) Heles and Sour
In Universe 2, Heles and her attendant, Sour, bring a unique twist to the beverage-inspired naming convention. Heles’ name originates from “sherry,” a fortified wine, while Sour’s name alludes to a type of drink mixer. Together, they offer a flavor of distinction to the divine lineup.
3) Mosco and Camparri
Universe 3 introduces us to Mosco, also known as Mule, whose name pays tribute to the Moscow Mule cocktail. Similarly, Camparri, Mosco’s angelic counterpart, draws inspiration from an Italian beverage of the same name. These names add a touch of international flair to the ensemble.
