Dragon Ball Super” Universal Survival Arc is already in its meat of the Tournament of Power, which pits all 80 warriors from eight participating universes in an attempt to defend their homes from the Omni-King’s annihilation. Long before the battle royal was initiated, the Zen-Oh has planned to wipe out all the weaker universes to balance the galaxy. However, Goku requested to host a tournament instead to give these universes a chance to prove the king wrong. The other four strongest universes are exempted to fight since their mortal level ranking is enough. This is what we know so far, but there are experts and contributors of the hit anime series that also have other theories.


Why are these four strongest universes exempted in the tournament?

Universes 1, 5, 8 and 12 are not part of Dragon Ball Super” Tournament of Power since they have highest mortal level while the others are low. These four universes have yet to reveal all of their warriors and many fans believe that one of them is the mortal warrior that Whis was referring to. The Angel of Universe 10 previously said that there is one mortal fighter, whose power is even stronger than a God Of Destruction. People were quick to speculate that he must be referring to Jiren The Grey, a muscular humanoid fighter who is also a member of the Pride Troopers from Universe 11.

However, some experts suggest otherwise.

According to some “Dragon Ball Super” contributors, this mortal fighter has not been introduced to the anime just yet, and it’s highly possible that he or she is from one of the four strongest universes. Since Goku is expected to champion his team in the Tournament of Power, the mortal fighter might be coming out soon after the Saiyan warrior wins. Thus, the other reason why Universes 1, 5, 8 and 12 are not competing in the tournament is for Goku to be challenged to become more powerful.


As the anime’s main protagonist, fans expect him to become the greatest fighter in the battle royal. This is despite the fact that he still has to face Jiren, Frost or Hit.

Universes 1, 5, 8 and 12 against Goku?

As Whis revealed in the previous “Dragon Ball Super” episode that there is a mortal fighter that’s stronger than a God of Destruction, it’s possible that he or she will be Goku’s next challenge. Therefore, we may have a hint here for the anime’s next possible arc. It could be that soon after Goku’s victory in the tournament, he will have to face this mortal warrior or even all the other four universes.

Either way, we are pretty sure that there is another explosive waiting in the pipeline.

What do you think of these “Dragon Ball Super” theories? Do you have your theory too?
