Dragon Ball Super has spent much of its time expanding both the cosmos và the mythology of the Dragon Ball universe. As if 11 other universes each possessing their own Gods of Destruction, Angels & Supreme Kai weren"t enough, the series decided to bring time travel back into the phối for its most complex villain origin story yet. Goku Black"s appearance in Future Trunks"s timeline is complicated, to lớn say the least. The body-swapping, time-traveling, multiverse-hopping villain has likely made more than a few viewers pause khổng lồ grab a pencil và paper.

Dubbed "Goku Black" by Future Bulma because he looks lượt thích Goku, wears black và is evil, the true identity of this villain is eventually revealed khổng lồ be Zamasu, the apprentice lớn the Supreme Kai of Universe 10. But where did he come from & why does he look lượt thích Goku?

A Supreme Kai"s responsibility khổng lồ their assigned universe is khổng lồ kickstart life, then simply observe its progress. Zamasu hails from Universe 10, where he studied to lớn become the new Supreme Kai. However, Zamasu grows lớn despise the mortals he is tasked with watching over, seeing them as violent, selfish, ugly stains on the beauty of life.

Despite having an admittedly compelling origin story for a villain, Zamasu"s journey from a disgruntled Kai into an evil clone of Goku required a tremendous amount of hoop-jumping. In the main timeline, thanks lớn knowledge gained from Future Trunks"s arrival, Beerus travels khổng lồ Universe 10 & destroys Zamasu, thus sparing the series" main timeline from his plans. However, in an alternate future where Beerus does not Destroy Zamasu, the evil Kai apprentice kills his master & steals his Time Ring before traveling to lớn Universe Six, trang chủ of the Super rồng Balls.

In this new, alternate future, Zamasu uses the all-powerful Super Shenron khổng lồ wish to lớn swap bodies with that timeline"s Goku. As a Supreme Kai, he is severely limited in terms of combat strength, explaining why he wanted Goku"s Saiyan abilities, so that he may carry out his plan himself. Once Zamasu obtains Goku"s body and power, he promptly slaughters Gohan, Goten and Chi-Chi before using the stolen Time Ring to travel lớn Future Trunks"s timeline. There, he joins the Zamasu of that time khổng lồ enact Project Zero Mortals. It is here that he becomes known as Goku Black, as Future Trunks & Bulma are unaware of his real identity.


All that said, it doesn"t quite explain why Goku black turns pink. Zamasu"s wish transferred his being into Goku"s body, meaning he is now technically a Kai and a Saiyan, with access to lớn all of Goku"s Saiyan power. When mortals like Goku và Vegeta use god power to become Super Saiyan, their hair turns blue. However, Zamasu is a god, so when he uses god power to lớn become a Super Saiyan, his hair turns pink, or Rosé, as he calls it. Put simply, Super Saiyan Blue và Super Saiyan Rosé are the same forms, the difference in màu sắc just reflects whether the user is mortal or a god.

Dragon Ball has always been a fan hâm mộ of evil Gokus, like the non-canon Turles or when Captain Ginyu also stole Goku"s body. Super showed impressive determination khổng lồ making another evil Goku, folding in the expanded series mythology as well as the return of Future Trunks for good measure. Unfortunately, most of Goku Black"s time in the series was spent explaining how he came khổng lồ be in the first place. Zamasu"s plan probably would have worked if he didn"t have lớn spend so much time explaining it lớn everyone.
