** Like [[spoiler: Goku Black and Future Zamasu, Merged Zamasu]] believes that he's creating a paradise by wiping out the mortals who disrespects the gods. However, it's clear after all his AGodIAm speeches that this is all a thinly veiled excuse to remake the multiverse in his image and rule as the sole supreme god.

* JerkassFacade: To push Cabba to his RageBreakingPoint Vegeta briefly becomes his old SpacePirate self and threatens to destroy Cabba's entire planet and kill his family once he kills him. This pushes Cabba over the edges and he ascends to Super Saiyan.

Added DiffLines:

** Cus, the angel of universe 10, is the Grand Priestís oldest child, but she looks like a little girl. Of course, the fact that she also acts like one doesnít help either.

Added DiffLines:

* TheLawOfDiminishingDefensiveEffort: Demonstrated by Jiren in Episode 109. He stands still and absorbs countless blows from Goku at Super Saiyan 1 and 2 (to [[NoSell no effect]]); when Goku goes Super Saiyan God Jiren starts blocking with one hand but otherwise remains still; and only when Goku uses Super Saiyan Blue does Jiren begin dodging and blocking properly.


* MeanCharacterNiceActor:
** [[spoiler: Frost is a [[TheSociopath sociopath]] who start wars that kills millions just so he can buy planets more cheaply before selling them. He is also played by Creator/RyuseiNakao, the same Japanese voice actor as Frieza, and he is said to be a [[NiceGuy sweet and romantic gentleman]] with a gentle and lovely singing voice]].
** Creator/MasakoNozawa is known for being one of the sweetest voice actresses in the industry and has played the beloved Son Goku since the beginning of the anime. Her role as Black has been praised both in the East and West for being creepy and sinister.

Added DiffLines:

* MarilynManeuver: In the 89th episode, Chaiotsu uses one of his psychic powers to lift Yurin's skirt and make it flow, though she's not shown below the waist. She almost immediately covers up and tells others not to look.

Added DiffLines:

* OctopoidAliens: The Galactic King resembles a large green octopus wearing a crown.


** Chi-Chi in Episode 18. Gohan and Hercule were perfectly happy throwing baby Pan back and forth. Videl was perfectly happy watching them. Pan was perfectly happy to be perpetually airborne. Chi-Chi was the only one who walked in the room going [[CrowningMomentofFunny 'You guys are throwing a BABY.']] Though granted, Gohan did strike a point about Pan's Saiyan blood probably enough to keep her from any real danger.

Added DiffLines:

* MoveInTheFrozenTime: the effects of Hit's Time Freeze can be countered by someone sufficiently stronger than him (such as a powered-up Goku or Jiren). This leads to the infamous comment that Jiren is "stronger than time."


** After Ribrianne is defeated by 18, Zirloin, Zarbuto and Rabanra become Universe 2's last chance for survival, copying the powers of the Maiden Squadron. They managed to give Goku, 17 and 18 a hard time before being knocked off the stage.

** When Android 18 is reluctant to enter the Tournament of Power, Goku makes up a ten-million Zeni prize to entice her. He uses the same lie for 17, Tenshinhan and Master Roshi, though 17 isn't interested in the money. As with the previous examples, this comes out and causes problems: once all the tournament fighters are assembled, the true nature of the Tournament is revealed, causing Krillin and 18 to drop out until Bulma irritably offers to provide the money.

** At his heart, this is what Goku is. He prefers to live in isolation in the mountains with his family and train. He is also protective of animals and treats them like people. When poachers from space takes a bunch of animals to sell on the black market and even tries to bribe 17 and him, Goku coldly says that there is no saving him and walks over to smash the guy.
** What 17 becomes as a park ranger. He lives by himself on a small island, protecting it fiercely from poachers even if they come from space. While he tries not to kill anyone, he isn't afraid to spill blood or sacrifice himself.

** 17 managed to propel himself onto the "sun" illuminating the ring. When Champa demanded to know if that was allowed since it was technically out of bounds, Zen'O let it go.

** Most of the U6's Saiyans have designs devoid of muscle definition, far thinner than Saiyans like Vegeta's brother Tarble, or Trunks and Goten who are human-hybrid children. Also notable, their eyes are in a thin design similar to Android's 17 and 18 that, while have been seen on Saiyans in the past, were never before seen on a Super Saiyan.
** Brianne's design is quite different from Toriyama' usual style. She is drawn cuter with wide eyes in her human form. She wouldn't be out of place in ''Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure'', which makes sense since she's an obvious homaged to the Magical Girl genre.

** Marron, Krillin and 18's daughter, looks the same as she did during the Buu Saga. Unlike Goten and Trunks she doesn't have the excuse of having Saiyan blood.

** Episode 47 is filled with these to the point that you may need a neck brace. We see Future Trunks in a world that has all but been destroyed. He meets Bulma who gives him the fuel needed to power the time machine, only for [[spoiler: Goku Black]] to crash into the lab, blow it up, and [[spoiler: kill Bulma]]. We then cut to the present with Goku and Piccolo having a race to see who can harvest the most vegetables from Goku's farm. We also get some humorous interactions with Goku, Vegeta, and Beerus. We then go back to the future where Trunks meets Mai and tell her that [[spoiler: Bulma is dead]] and the time machine only has enough fuel for a one-way trip. After the commercial break, we go back to the present on Beerus' planet where everyone eats instant ramen noodles. In the future, Mai can only find one canned food that isn't dog food and they're practically starving. They then leave for Capsule Corp to use the time machine only to be caught by [[spoiler: Goku Black]] who disarms Trunks and [[spoiler: nearly kills Mai]]. [[spoiler: Goku Black]] speaks for the first time in the entire episode, saying today was the day Trunks takes his last breath. Cue happy ending credits.

** When Goku summons Shenron, Bulma tells Goku that if he does a favour for her then she'll let him have the last wish. The favour involves tunneling to the center of the Earth to find the mineral needed for time travel. By the time Goku gets back, Shenron's physical form expires before Goku can get his wish granted. To add insult to injury, Beerus finds out and destroys the mineral, along with the time machine and its notes, so Goku helping Bulma worked ''against'' her.

** PlayedWith. Bulma slaps Beerus for calling her an old auntie, much like she does with every powerful fighter in the series. However, she is fully aware that hitting Beerus is ''not'' a good idea given her fearful reaction when Beerus glares at her. Thankfully, Beerus decides to forgive her this time since she is the one who suggests using Shenron to track the last Super Dragon Ball.

Added DiffLines:

* NewWeaponTargetRange: In a relatively rare non-VideoGame example of the trope, the very first thing stopping Frieza's ressurection for the Tournament of Power is a horde of {{mooks}} - perfect for Frieza to showcase his ability to curve his Death Beams, and to prove his GoldenSuperMode is no longer burdened by stamina drain.


** Obuni of Universe 10 is practically the only warrior (aside from Napapa) that can prove to be formidable in his universe, and he fights Gohan for the fate of his universe and family.
** After Ribrianne is defeated by 18, Zirloin, Zarbuto and Rabanra become Universe 2's last chance for survival, copying the powers of the Maiden Squadron. They managed to give Goku a hard time before being knocked off the stage.

** After being an IronButtMonkey for most of the Tournament, Universe 3 stops pulling its punches after Viara's elmination and reveals its last resort--Anilaza, a fusion of 4 fighters from their universe. This opponent proves to be real formidable--it took all of Universe 7's remaining warriors' combined power to defeat it!
