Goku vs. Vegeta
- Vegeta wins, justified by the fact that Vegeta has two (albeit dubious) wins under his belt against Goku.
- Goku wins, justified by the advantage he had (and apparently maintained) after the Buu saga.
Bojack vs. Cell
- Saiyan Cells allowed him to improve.
Gast vs. King Piccolo
- More Nameks = More power
- It happened, as in Chapter 42.
At some point, Gogeta will fight Vegetto
The logo on the page is a giveaway. Unless it's a fun picture meant to symbolize how these two can possibly meet, it will happen in the comic.
- I think Bardock's vision of the future of Bra telling Goku and Vegeta that not even they can stop Vegetto hints that Goku and Vegeta at least considered using the Fusion Dance to make Gogeta.
XXI is the real villain of the comic
Or at least, will be shown to be really powerful. There is a reason why he hasn't been fully revealed yet.
- Yes and yes.
- It is possible... Although, some of Bardock's visions seem to hint that Vegetto will become the big bad... Might be a herring though.
Universe 5 is one where the Red Ribbon Army took over Earth.
XXI is Android 21.
- If that's true, one can only hope that Android 21 is Son Goku
XXI is the adversary who sealed the Old Kai in the Z-Sword, without ever being defeated.
Salagir has stated, for example here
, that A) XXI is more than 1000 years old, and B) U5 diverged more than 1000 years before DBM. Seriously, how many notable characters from the Dragon Ball universe could fit? We only have either Buu (and we already have U4 and U11 Buu), a Kaioshin (and we already have U1 South Kaioshin), or that guy (more suggestions accepted). That guy could be a serious threat, since he has had millions of years to get stronger. Besides, the apparition of U9 Old Kai would somewhat prepare the ground for its apparition, being the only one in the 20 universes that has faced ¿him? before.
- It is a him, and this was hinted at, but U9 Old Kai said that it wasn't who he thought it was. Still, Old Kai is, well, old.
U18 Pan will become a Super Saiyan in her next matches of the tournament
Unless she will go on her word and really quit after what happened to her U16 counterpart.
- Confirmed.... Didn't fight in the form though.
- Confirmed but she gives up soon after against her foe U13 Kakarotto saying she isn't ready to use it.
U13 Raditz and Nappa will become Super Saiyan
The authors love showcasing never-before seen, comic exclusive transformations.
- Nappa and Raditz lost to U8 Freeza and U3 Bardock respectively. So probably not.
- Played with in one of the mini-comics. Raditz strikes out to become a Super Saiyan only to find everyone else is already SSJ3 by the time he does (including Nappa).
U12 Trunks and U18 Vegeta will become Super Saiyan 3
To coincide with their appearances in Dragon Ball Heroes and Raging Blast respectively.
U13 Kakarot and U18 Goku will fight
Well, Kakarot and Goku will fight a bit, Kakarot show off his Super Saiyan powers, and taunting Goku about killing everyone he cared about and enjoyed it. Pissed beyond belief, Goku will possibly kill him on his full power... without
going Super Saiyan.
- Given the two's far placement in the tournament brackets, it's unlikely.
- It could happen, depending on what happens in U18 Pan vs U13 Kakarot. There a chance of him facing him next round.
- It's pretty much impossible, since before facing Goku, he has to defeat the winner of the match Trunks/Vegeta (most likely Vegeta) and the one from the outcome Cell/Bojack/Tapion/Krillin (most likely Cell). Both of them are supposed to be stronger than him.
U9 Bulma was her universe's Android 18 and U9 Yamcha is the father of U9 Trunks
Hey, even Yamcha needs his day in the sun.
U9 Goku was like U13 Kakarot, but got killed by the U9 heroes
Judging by how U9 Krillin adversely reacted to U18 Goku, Goku could have been their version of Raditz.
- Nope. In page 150, Krillin doesn't recognize Goku at all, which means he has never met him, either good or evil.
- That doesn't mean it's not true, it just means that U9 Krillin never met him. It's possible that Grandpa Gohan or Master Roshi killed him.
The potential wishes of various people from the universes
Since whoever win this thing will get 3 wishs from Universe 1 Namekian Dragon balls, I wonder what the wishes would be.
- Some of them have been stated in the novelization. The U7 Namekian wants to bring back the Namekian race, and U12 Trunks wants for #16 to become a human.
- U16 will probably wish for Vegeto to be defused, if his issues with getting enough to eat and not having anyone that can give him a good fight (apparently these are mentioned in the novelization) are any indication.
The winner of the tournament will give their wishes to three universes that need it
The ones who get the wishes are U12 Trunks, U7 Gast Carcolh, and U3 Bardock. Each of them likely have a noble wish that the heroic fighters of U6, U9, U16, U18, and U19 would respect. U14's two fighters may not have problems with it either, considering they did end up as neutral characters in other universes.
- I wouldn't speak for U19. They apparently require authorization from the leaders on their home world to use their war armor, which was granted off-screen for the sake of this tournament. Whatever they're going to wish for, it seems to be pretty important to them.
- After what happened in the fight between #16 and Eleim of U19 my guess is that if this does happen and (lets say U18 Goku wins) U12, U7, and U3 are offered a wish, #16 will give up his wish to universe 19.
- Confirmed U18 has vowed to use one of their wishes to save U19's universe from its pending destruction.
Ginyu will possess Zen Buu
Frieza's line about Ginyu being alive after all implies that Ginyu pretended to be dead, which means that at some point Ginyu will take over someone's body and pretend to be them (Most likely). Zen Buu saying "this masquerade ends now" could actually be Ginyu deciding to stop pretending to be Zen Buu.
- Based on the fact that Ginyu doesn't seem to be participating in the Tournament, this seems unlikely.
- Zen Buu has since noted that one of the members of that universe is not in his original body, and Frieza said that Ginyu is the only one with such an ability. So Ginyu's apparition is now more likely. Though Zen Buu's ability to notice a bodyswap makes his being possessed unlikely.
- Conversely, because Zen Buu can tell which of the members is not in his original body, he could be just flat out telling the heroes who it is after saying "this masquerade ends now" since it is interfering with his potential fights.
Explanations for Baddack's visions
Vegito says he will kill everyone if he has to and Frieza states Ginyu isn't dead. Likely, Ginyu body surfs to an unknown character and Vegito is trying to find him by attacking everyone
. Bra's statement to Goku and Vegeta is a response to them trying to stop his rampage. Since Piccolo claims all the universes are in danger its likely that either Ginyu has taken over someone truly dangerous or Zen Buu or XXI (potentially) are doing something to threaten every verse. Most likely, Zen Buu tries to steal the Vargas Technology so he can consume everyone across the multiverse; he's ending the masquerade because this has been his plan from the get go. Goku befriends a Cell Jr. somehow, probably due to Cell abandoning it or dying. The Super Namek I am convinced is ending Baddack's visions (note that his hand exits the frame, and that him saying "stop" is the last vision Baddack has.)
When Nappa dies, he will come back as a ghost for a few pages as a shout out to Team Four Star
- He will then disappear immediately afterwards.
King Piccolo of Universe 3 merged with Kami
It seems likely, take a look at his appearance, he looks more like the Nameless Namek than the young King Piccolo of the manga. Just how he merged with Kami again though is anyone's guess.
- Confirmed in Chapter 42. U18 Piccolo affirmed that U3 King Piccolo was him.
XXI is the Legendary Super Saiyan before Broly.
- In the cannon, on Namek, Vegeta said that the last super saiyan was 1,000 years ago, but blew himself up. Salagar has said that XXI is 1,000 years old and 1,000 years ago was when U5 diverged with the rest of the DBM (here and here).
- If that is true, XXI is terrifically powerful, if in this canon, a Legendary Super Saiyan's powers keep continuously growing, and it took only a few minutes for Broly overcome SSJ2 Vegetto, XXI bight be powerful enough to rip the multiverse apart with a thought...
Nappa will be the first to receive the Mystic Power-Up of the U13 fighters
U13 Vegeta and U13 Kakarot will probably be wary of the Mystic Power-Up overwriting their Super Saiyan Transformations and Raditz has been defeated in the tournament already. It would thus make sense for Nappa to be the guinea pig of sorts for the Mystic Power-Up, should Kakarot keep his word.
Thus, we'll get the U18 Goku vs Superman
fight we've always wanted!
Vegito will be taken over by Captain Ginyu
It would certainly explain why he goes evil in Bardock's vision.
Come on, it is too perfect to let go, which he will be depends on your opnion of how well it is set up so far...
Android 16 will kill U13 Kakarot.
He did say that he's hoping to be able to kill a Goku, and the U13 version is pretty much the only one he could kill without feeling guilty.
As an extension of the above (since 16 is out of the tournament at this point), eventually, the tournament will be overshadowed by a much more important conflict
All the fighters will basically launch into a free-for-all, and 16 will fight U13 Kakarot.
The final battle seems like it's aiming between XXI and U16 Bra
- Please god no...And how is it aiming toward that at all? XXI has barely been hinted at in the main comic, and hasn't been referenced by any of the characters except the Vargas.
- Well he has been confirmed to be the Big Bad ofthe comic... But I thik it should be Gogeta, or Vegetto, not Bra.
U4 Buu will get access to the ultra armor
It is said that the ultra armors only respond to the users brain waves, in this case Xeniloum, so Buu should not normally be able to use it. However it is stated that Buu has absorbed most of the universe into his being, and I bet that U4 Xeniloum was one of them.
King Cold can access a fifth form like Cooler
His response to Cooler's shock he can master his true form is 'you could do it', why would he say that if Cooler had done something he can't?
Super Saiyan God will make a debut in this manga
They can't possibly
pass this up, especially the way it seems to be heading with Vegito as a villainous figure (or so Bardock's visions would imply), and we all want to see what Vegito would be like with that kind of power. The final resort would be for Goku to use his own SSJG form, and any of the available pure Saiyans to give Vegeta the power as well, and fusing into Gogeta, leading into the second WMG on this page, only far more epic than they every predicted.
Universe 13 split off during the King Piccolo arc
What if Goku's fall from the Kinton cloud after his confrontation against Tambourine made him recover his lost Saiyan instincts, just as his first fall made him forget them? That would explain several things: Kakarot's reaction after seeing Krilin (it seems they were friends at one point), how he managed to get enough power before Raditz's arrival (he had already underwent training under Roshi and karin by that point), and why it seems Kakarot's rampage started quite late (there were still intact cities by the time of the first U13 special, that one at the start had just been destroyed).
In the final battle...
Gast Carcolh will be hit hard with the Worf Effect
for the simple purpose of showing how strong the last opponent is.
Mary Sue was created by the Vargas of Universe 2.
She's a Cell-like experiment created solely for the tournament; it would not only explain how she's related to so many of the characters, but also how she allegedly knows every fighting style - the knowledge could have been programmed directly. She could have been an incredibly fierce contender, but Arale just happened to be even stronger
; this isn't much of a stretch of the imagination, either. It's outright confirmed in the Dragon Ball universe that Arale during the General Blue saga was stronger than King Piccolo saga!Goku; it's entirely possible that in all the time that's passed since then, she could have easily kept on upgrading and improving to become a pint-sized super android
Universe 4 diverged when Buu decided not to give Goku the five seconds to fuse.
If he'd absorbed Vegito, he could have easily curb stomped him when they fought in space.
- Unlikely, since this would have prevented Vegito from existing in Universe 4, and it seems Buu had already met Vegito before the tournament. Most likely the split happened after Vegito's defusing: it would have been much easier for Buu to defeat Goku and Vegeta instead of Vegito, and it would explain why Buu is so obsessed with fighting Vegito. Buu would have never defeated Vegito in his own universe, and now he's got a chance for a rematch.
It's pretty clear in Bardock's visions that Vegetto's going to become the Big Bad
, and Chapter 33's starting to see the realization of some of the visions. He's been unchallenged in power for who knows how many years until his humiliating defeat
at the hands of XXI, so in his sulking, he's going to go after the dragon balls in order to make himself truly
invincible, and he's not going to let anyone
get in his way.
Universe 2 had an evil Kaio Shin
This resulted in one of the Kaio Shins to destroy the entire universe. After the rest of the Kaio Shins took care of him, they rebuilt that Universe into the unique one it is today.
Universe 11 (Babidi universe) diverged from a universe where Bojack won
I think the reason Babidi was successful in universe 11 is because Bojack defeated the Z-fighters. I believe Bojack and his gang defeated Z-fighters like they did in universe 6. When Babidi came to Earth he discovered Bojack and his crew had the power he needed to revive Buu. He lures them into his ship like how he did with the Z-fighters. The battles between Babidi's forces and Bojack's forces was used power up Buu. This would explain why some Babidi's forces like Yakon aren't competing in the tournament. Dabura would get involved and could have a drawn out battle with Bojack that would revive Majin Buu. After Buu was revived it is easy to see Majin Buu and Dabura would be enough to kill off any stragglers. Bojack's gang is likely to play around and let themselves have fun and giving Babidi opportunities to steal their energy for Buu's revival. This would explain why both Dabura and Buu are alive and under Babidi's control. Babidi and Dabura don't appear to even recognize Goku and company even when they interacted with universe 18. While U11 Buu did fight one of Bojack's fighters it's not a stretch to assume Buu wouldn't comment on seeing him before. Bojack and his minions not recognizing Babidi, Dabura, and Majin Buu could be explained that they never encountered them in universe 6. For all we know universe 6 could also be a universe where the Supreme Kai killed Babidi before he ever enslaved Dabura thus never coms to revive Buu.
In the aftermath of the events of the U8 special, Goku finds out that his son and two best friends were obliterated by Freeza, and all their efforts in vain. In a rage, he goes Super Sayain, and proceeds to start hunting down Freeza, trashing his capital, but unfortunately, probably runs afoul of all three Frost Demons, who were able to overpower him, but in the end their total victory over the Z-Warriors was pyrrhic at best.
Universe 9 diverged for Universe 3
It seems fairly likely that Kakkarot wasn't sent to earth in either universe (we know that's fact in universe 3). Furthermore, Krillin recognises Cooler but not Freeza, indicating something happened to him. The differences are whether the Z-Fighters or Piccolo won, and for some reason Raichi didn't manage to eliminate all the Saiyan's in universe 9.
