As the last living Cerealian, Granolah makes a devastating wish for revenge against the Saiyans who destroyed his people. This kicks off a titanic three-way battle between Granolah, Goku, and Vegeta. Their clashes blaze across ruined cities and shake entire planets. This arc gives quite a unique dynamic between Granolah and Vegeta due to both of them being survivors of their race.

One of the most impactful developments in the recent story arcs is Goku finally mastering the incredibly difficult divine technique of Ultra Instinct. After training with the angel Merus, Goku is able to tap into the full power of this form, granting him lightning-fast reflexes and strength that surpasses even the Gods of Destruction. The manga is filled with jaw-dropping displays of Goku utilizing completely autonomous Ultra Instinct to battle fearsome foes like Moro.

1. Vegeta Unlocking Ultra Ego

Not one to let Goku steal the spotlight, Vegeta has attained a form of his own called Ultra Ego. By drawing on the destructive powers of a God of Destruction, Vegeta can use this state to become stronger the more damage he takes. Ultra Ego makes Vegeta seem perpetually on the edge of losing control, emanating astounding auras of power. As Vegeta pushes Ultra Ego to its limits against warriors like Granolah, fans can finally see him steal the show’s thunder for once without being overshadowed by Goku.


With these new storylines and Goku and Vegeta reaching unprecedented levels of power, Dragon Ball Super’s return promises fans epic new sagas and electrifying action. Whenever it comes back, expect Super to deliver exhilarating new content that takes the beloved franchise to greater heights, especially due among fans of the series who have been patiently waiting for its return.

  1. Lol I really hope it does come back…but come on it’s going beyond 5yrs now, I’m not so sure it’s ever coming back.

  2. If they pull a Demon Slayer and make the first season back a episode version of the Super Hero movie, I’ll be so furious ๐Ÿ˜ก like Ultra Ego x20. I didn’t wait 5+ yrs to just get repeated content ๐Ÿ™ƒ
