Note: Due to the different interpretations of characters shared with Xenoverse, we are dividing the tropes between the characters of Mira, Towa, Demigra and Fu.
Time Breakers/Dark Demon Realm Foundation/Dark Empire
- Depending on the Writer: Their characterization is quite inconsistent between Xenoverse, the Heroes commercials and the Heroes manga. For that reason, we separated their tropes between the two games.
- Original Generation: The characters who weren't created for Online were created for Heroes. Putine and Gravvy, however, expanded a bit on Demigra's backstory from Xenoverse too.
- Our Demons Are Different: All of them belong to the Demon Realm, and can become Demon Gods, which makes them as strong as a Super Saiyan God.
Besides tropes featured in Xenoverse, this incarnation of Towa features examples of:
- Adaptational Badass: She gains more transformations than her Xenoverse counterpart due to the Kili she absorbs.
- Breakout Villain: Alongside Mira, they debuted in Online and have appeared in most videogames of the series like Dragon Ball: Fusions, Dragon Ball Xenoverse and Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle.
- Non-Action Big Bad: She is capable of fighting, but she lets Mira to be the one to face the heroes. She takes a more active role after reviving as Dark Towa.
- Unexplained Recovery: After her initial death at the hands of the Time Patrol, she apparently revives from sheer malice, though World Mission suggests that Dabura helped her.
Besides tropes featured in Xenoverse, this incarnation of Mira features examples of:
- Adaptational Badass: He got some Super Saiyan-like transformations his Xenoverse counterpart lacks.
- Breakout Villain: Alongside Towa, they debuted in Online and have appeared in most videogames of the series like Dragon Ball: Fusions, Dragon Ball Xenoverse and Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle.
- Fusion Dance: Mira can fuse with Towa to obtain a Super Saiyan 4-like transformation.
- Super Mode: Mira has the "Demonic Super Saiyan" transformation, a corrupt version of the Super Saiyan, and the form he obtains by fusing with Towa (first seen in Xenoverse 2).
- Ancient Evil: He is considered to be the strongest evil in his prime and has existed for millions of years.
- Big Bad: Of the "Dark Empire" and "Dark King Mechikabura" Sagas.
- Black Eyes of Evil: Black eyes with red irises.
- Complete Immortality: In the manga, Mechikabura gains this after wishing for eternal youth and absorbing space-time, the latter granting him infinite regeneration. He has to be sealed away to be dealt with.
- Demon Lords and Archdevils: The strongest of all demonkind, essentially making him a demon lord.
- Expy: He is the second Demon King Piccolo clone after Lord Slug, but he is more subtle about it.
- Evil Old Folks: White hair, wrinkles, over 75 million years old, totally qualifies.
- Evil Versus Evil: Him against Demigra in the "Dark King Mechikabura" Saga.
- God of Evil: Deliberately called this in the final battle with him.
- Meaningful Name: Mechikabura's name comes from Cinderella's Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo song, specifically the lyrics: "mechicka boola".
- Physical God: Mechikabura is described as being the "strongest evil" from the Demon Realm, and that's considering how immensely powerful other members like Towa and Demigra have proven to be. He can also turn others into Demon Gods, so it's very likely he has the potential to be one himself.
- He becomes an even clearer example after regaining his youth, as he easily defeats every opponent he faces. It takes sealing him away to put him down, and it only sticks after his youth is negated.
- Satanic Archetype: As a leader of demons in charge of an entire realm of them.
- Super Empowering: Transformed Towa, Putine, Gravy, Dabura, Salsa and Shroom into Demon Gods, and contributes some of his energy to Fin.
- World's Strongest Man: In his prime, he was called the strongest evil, and when he used the Darm Dragon Balls to wish for his youth to be restored, Chronoa had to seal him away using her full power however it ultimately fails. In his Dark King form, he was able to battle the Time Patrol and Demigra with little difficulty, and in his Time Power unleashed form he was able to fight both the Time Patrol and the Dark Empire traitors on his own until he was defeated and sealed by Xeno Trunks.
Twin Majin sisters who, despite their size, are dangerous fighters with elemental ki abilities. They don't really get along all that well.
- Canon Immigrant: Originally from Dragonball Online.
- Cute Monster Girl: This is despite the fact that they are both being evil.
- Dark Chick: The sisters share this role in the Foundation.
- The Glorious War of Sisterly Rivalry: Despite working together, the two have a bad relationship.
- An Ice Person: Shun Shun and her special attack, the Blizzard Bomb.
- Playing with Fire: Haru Haru and her special attack, the Volcano Bomb.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Shun Shun uses ice and is a better fighter offensively while Haru Haru wields fire and is more tactical, focusing on strategy.
Devilmen from Hell who wear armor made of skulls and wield deadly power.
- Canon Immigrant: Originally planned for Dragon Ball Online but never released.
- Big Red Devil: They're not red, but they do have the horns, batlike wings, red eyes, and a pitchfork, so they more than qualify.
- The Dragon: Psi Devilman to Towa and Mira's Big Bad Duumvirate.
- Kamehame Hadoken: Like Akkuman/Spike before him, Psi Devilman's Psidevilmite Beam is a beam of energy that is more effective the higher his victim's negativity is.
- Meaningful Name: Psi Devilman means "worst devilman", being reviled for his vicious nature.
- Sixth Ranger: The Great Devilman card was added sometime after Putine and Gravy, and appeared as a member of the Time Breakers much later than the others.
- Skeletons in the Coat Closet: They wear a chest piece and shoulder pads made of skulls.
- Battle Aura: A yellow and red one during his special attacks.
- The Brute: He may not be the strongest in terms of actual power level, but he fits the trope by his build and the fact that he's a bull man.
- Canon Immigrant: Originally from Dragonball Online.
- Our Minotaurs Are Different: A massive bull man hybrid.
- Sleeves Are for Wimps: Gen. Bon's denim jacket looks like the sleeves were torn off.
- Wrestler in All of Us: General Bon's signature attack, the Wild Typhoon, looks very similar to Zangief's Spinning Clothesline.
A wizard formerly of the Heavenly Realm, she became Demigra's ally and assisted him in his attack on Chronoa.

- Super Mode: Was transformed into a Demon God by Mechikabura.
- Butt-Monkey: Despite being an ally of Demigra, he can't seem to remember him at all, as he was mostly interested in Putine's help, according to the manga adaptation of Heroes.
- Drop the Hammer: Gravy's weapon of choice after being transformed into a Demon God.
- Edible Theme Naming: A brown sauce usually made from meat stock and served with poultry, mashed potatoes or poutine...get it?
- Shock and Awe: Gravy is skilled in Thunder Black Magic and his special attack is Lightning Sentence.
- Super Mode: Was transformed into a Demon God by Mechikabura.
A wizard allied with Mechikabura who was already a Demon God at the time of his introduction.

The shinigami of the Dark Demon Realm who serves Mechikabura.
- Bad Boss: Kills a perfectly loyal demon just because he can, in the manga.
- Edible Theme Naming: Shroom's name comes from mushroom sauce.
- Enemy Mine: Alongside Putine and Salsa, he appears to aid the heroes (and Hearts... and Cell) in the New Spacetime War arc, having lost most of his power following Mechikabura's defeat.
- Playing with Fire: He is able to conjure it with his Flame Death Scythe.
- Shinigami: Shroom is the grim reaper of the Dark Empire.
- Sinister Scythe: His Flame Death Scythe which he uses against the heroes.
Besides tropes featured in Xenoverse, this incarnation of Fu features examples of:
- Adaptational Badass: He shares Mira's "Super" transformation, meaning he is no slouch despite the geeky outfit.
- Adaptational Villainy: In Xenoverse, he is more of a curious trickster that wants to use his powers to see the different What If? stories he can pull off, even with him at the end of the Infinite Storytelling the Patroller that he doesn't really care for the gloomy paths, and thinks people should be happy with his changes in history. In Heroes, the kid driven by curiosity is still in there but is more of a Mad Scientist seeing what he can pull off from his changes in history.
- Badass in a Nice Suit: Shows up on Earth with a new haircut and a suave black suit in the Universe Creation Saga.
- Big Bad: He was the main villain for a majority of Super Dragon Ball Heroes, until he was finally defeated by Goku being empowered by the Universe Tree.
- Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: He is extremely untrustworthy, having tricked or betrayed everyone he has feigned allegiance with.
- Depending on the Writer: He is Obviously Evil in the Prison Planet anime, but more discreet about it in the manga.
- Hidden Agenda Villain: His goals are mysterious for most of the Prison Planet and Universal Conflict sagas, befitting his shady personality.
- Let's You and Him Fight: While he does have a practical aim to gather high battle powers for a sinister purpose a la Babidi, he takes great pleasure in observing the fights he sets up between powerful warriors.
- Mad Scientist: Heroes greatly plays up this angle of his character, as he creates a laboratory made out of several planets chained together to conduct his "experiments".
- Master Swordsman: He nullifies Cumber's Golden Great Ape transformation with a single slash of his sword.
- Physical God: He becomes the new Dark King during his fight with Vegito. He has the same powers as the previous Dark King, and can revive the Universe Tree. Fu takes even further after absorbing Dogi dogi and being empowered the Universe Tree, Hearts even states, he has become a being akin to the Omni-King himself!
- Super Mode: He has Mira's demonic transformation.
- Villainous Breakdown: After subduing Cumber, Fu returns to find his laboratory destroyed by Xeno Goku and Xeno Vegeta. Fu doesn't take it well.
A demonic entity that came to the Earth during the Cell Games and was eventually defeated. He was later part of the Prison Planet experiments by Fu.
- Adaptational Badass: In V.R.V.S, he was weak enough that the heroes were able to defeat him at the time of the Cell Games Saga. In Heroes, he's powerful enough to go toe to toe with post Super base Goku and Vegeta, with Vegeta noting that he is a tough foe. He later defeats a stronger Hatchiyack who almost killed Future Trunks, and later defeats Future Trunks when he tries to prevent Ozotto's wish.
- Adapted Out: He doesn't appear in the anime version of the Prison Planet Saga beyond a cameo on one of Fu's screens.
- Big Red Devil: He looks like the unholy hellspawn of King Cold, Semi-Perfect Cell and Tenshinhan.
- Canon Immigrant: Majin Ozotto was the Final Boss in the game Dragon Ball Z: V.R.V.S, an obscure Sega System 32 game. To say that seeing him anywhere else is quite something.
- Generic Doomsday Villain: Don't kid yourself, he doesn't have much backstory to speak off. According to V.R.V.S, he simply appeared one day to challenge Earth's fighters, and was defeated. However, Heroes expands his characterisation and motivations.
- Immortality Seeker: In the manga, like many past villains, his desired wish with the Dragon Balls is for an undying body.
- Non-Indicative Name: He is a demon, but he isn't related to Majin Buu or his species.
- One-Winged Angel: He has a grotesque transformation that resembles a Resident Evil monster, but it was scrapped from his original game appearance.
- Planet Eater: In Heroes, Fu states that Ozotto once ate a planet... somehow.
- Power Copying: In his original appearance, he could absorb and mimic the Z-Fighters' abilities similar to Shang Tsung. After catching up to Lagss during the Universal Conflict arc, he steals her powers by absorbing her.
- Smarter Than You Look: While he may look like a generic evil brute, he can be very cunning. He outwits all of the other prisoners to gather the Special Dragon Balls and gets his wish in the game, while in the manga he is only prevented by Oolong interrupting him.
Core Area Warriors
A group of dangerous individuals from different timelines and universes that were captured by Fu in the core area of the Prison Planet, they managed to break free with one objective: to forge a new universe with the Universe Seed.
- Equal-Opportunity Evil: A team of villains from different backgrounds which includes a genocidal deity from Universe 10, two insane machine mutants from Universe 6, a Saiyan with demonic powers from the distant past of Universe 7 and two other unknown individuals.
Hearts (ハーツ, Hatsu)
The enigmatic leader of the Core Area Warriors with the power to read the hearts of others. He seeks to use the power of the Universe Seed to overthrow the gods.
- Anime Hair: His hair is normally neat and slicked back, but when he powers up into "Super Hearts", his hair spikes up like a Super Sayian.
- His temporarily resurrected form in the New Spacetime War arc has a more normal hair style.
- Attack Drone: He can use his Gravity Cages in this fashion, sending them out like homing projectiles. Upon becoming Ultimate Hearts, he can use the green orbs floating behind him to attack opponents, the orbs exploding upon contact with someone. His Gravity Finale technique has him assail opponents from below with countless Gravity Cages before merging them into a gigantic, golden Gravity Cage to crush opponents.
- Ax-Crazy: Downplayed, he does take some excitement from beating someone down, but he doesn't go out of his way to make his opponents suffer and is otherwise fairly pragmatic.
- Back from the Dead: Not quite. In the New Spacetime War arc, he merely escaped Hell and has a halo over his head to signify that he's still a dead man walking.
- Bad Boss: He seems like a Benevolent Boss at first, saving his comrades from being defeated whenever pressured by the enemy and vowing that Kamin and Oren's deaths will not be in vain. Then he shows his true colors when he takes control of the completed Universe Seed; his first act is to deem that Fused Zamasu has worn out his usefulness and gleefully erase him from existence. He also caused Kamioren's sanity slippage by giving them the Universe Seed without warning, which they were visibly concerned about and ends up dying not long after.
- Badass Baritone: Has a very deep voice and is extremely powerful.
- Badass Longcoat: Wears a black coat. He takes it off when he's ready to fight.
- Big Bad: Of the "Universal Conflict" Saga, usurping Fu as the main threat.
- Blood Knight: Despite the fact that his gravity manipulation powers can subdue almost any opponent (including Jiren), he prolongs his fight with Goku for his own enjoyment.
- Card-Carrying Villain: While he hides behind promises of benevolence, its blindingly obvious that his goals are purely selfish and maniacal in nature; hes actually proud to admit to being a hypocrite when Vegeta calls him out for his posturing.
- Casting Gag: One of Takehito Koyasu's most popular roles is of DIO Brando, a villain associated with hearts due to the heartbands of his outfit.
- The Coats Are Off: When the Universe Seed is near completion, Hearts throws off his coat and enter the fight with Universe 7 himself.
- Combination Attack: Performs one with Lagss, with her encasing herself in a glass shell while Hearts uses his gravity powers to increase the shell's weight, crushing the opponent. This was powerful enough to revert Goku into his base form, allowing Lagss to finish him off with glass shards.
- Composite Character: As a former criminal who was trapped by higher powers and having a female underling, Hearts is one to Bojack. His fusion with the Universe Seed making him the most powerful enemy in the cosmos, alongside the evil spines from his back, come from Omega Shenron.
- Cool Shades: Wears a pair of yellow shades.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Episode 17 might ask well be titled "Curb-Stomp Battle: The Episode". Once he fuses with the completed Universe Seed and becomes the Ultimate Godslayer, he pretty much steamrolls over most of the fighters. Even the mighty Jiren is no match for him and Goku and Vegeta are forced to fuse into Gogeta just to level the playing field. After he fails to kill Gogeta Blue and the rest of the group with a Colony Drop, hes promptly mortally wounded with just two blows by the Saiyan.
- Curb Stomp Cushion: His fight with Goku. At first, he completely overwhelms Super Saiyan Goku until the latter goes Super Saiyan Blue, at which point the fight is dead even with Goku momentarily gaining the upper hand. But then Hearts gets back up revealing minor damage and gains the upper hand smashing Goku into the ground with his Gravity Fist. His fight with Gogeta Blue also counts, as although he manages to temporarily overpower him with a gravity-powered asteroid to the point that Jiren and Hit had to step in to help, but otherwise is overwhelmed and killed with ease by the fused Saiyan.
- Cessation of Existence: His Gravity Cages seem to fully erase anybody that is caught in them long enough, as when he kills Zamasu with one after becoming the Ultimate Godslayer, he destroys him so thoroughly that the previous side effect of killing Zamasu is not an issue whatsoever.
- Colony Drop: After being toyed with and easily manhandled by Gogeta Blue, he proceeds to take control of a large meteor and set it on a collision course right on top of him and the rest of the fighters present. Its notable in that its the only technique Hearts displays in his fight with the Fusion that actually gives his opponent a legitimate struggle.
- Dark Is Evil: In the climax of the Universe Conflict Saga, when he transforms into his Super Hearts form, he has a unique shadowy purple aura surrounding him.
- Do Unto Others Before They Do Unto Us: In short, he wants the gods exterminated dead so the threat of their Jerkass God tendencies and nigh-infinite power no longer looms over mortalkind.
- Enemy Mine: Quite shockingly, he teams up with Goku when they find themselves trapped in Fu's mirror universe.
- Enhanced Punch: His Gravity Fist technique, where he smashes an opponent into the ground with a gravity-enhanced punch.
- Evil Laugh: Does this quite often, especially when he gains the upper hand.
- Face Death with Dignity: Take his death quite gracefully and even take the time to explain his plan and admit that he was always impressed with mortals and their potential to break limits.
- Fantastic Racism: He has a deep, unexplained grudge against the gods and wishes to wipe them from existence. Its pretty ironic then that one of his major collaborators is Zamasu, a disgraced Kai who despises both mortals and gods.
- Faux Affably Evil: Hearts is quite cordial to both enemy and ally alike, but underneath is a genocidal maniac with a twisted definition of freedom.
- Graceful Loser: As he dies, Hearts congratulates the mortals for breaking their limits and defeating him, even admitting that this is the reason why he appreciates mortals.
- Golden Super Mode: Upon fusing with the completed Universe Seed and becoming Ultimate Hearts, his entire body turns golden.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has a large X-shaped scar on his chest.
- Gravity Master: Hearts' Signature Move is to increase the gravity around his opponents, pinning them to the ground. This is even powerful enough to stop Jiren dead in his tracks. In the manga, his energy cubes are called Gravity Cages and they can magnify the gravity of anything trapped inside as well as any shocks from the outside.
- HeelFace Turn: In the New Spacetime War arc, he seems to have turned over a new leaf as he teams up with Goku to escape Fu's corrupted new universe. Key word being "seems", as he did try to commit multiversal genocide against the gods only two arcs prior, so take it with a large grain of salt. Goku, being Goku, doesn't hesitate to trust him.
- Hidden Depths: Hearts appears to have a fondness for the Tuffle twins, allowing them to do their whims, and after their defeat as Kamioren, honoring their deaths. This is despite the fact he gave them the Universe Seed without warning, and caused them to be a rampaging monster.
- Hypocrisy Nod: Vegeta calls him out on being a pretentious hypocrite, pointing out that for all his talk of true freedom and peace, he has no qualms against attacking planets and killing countless people, seeing it as all for the sake of being "nourishment" for the multiverse. In response, Hearts not only agrees with Vegeta's assessment, but proudly accepts his hypocrisy.
- Kill the God: Hearts' ultimate goal. His plan is to power the Universe Seed with the energy from other universes, then merge with it to become the Ultimate Godslayer and kill all of the gods of the Multiverse. And as Zamasu learns the hard way, "all gods" includes him as well.
- The Leader: Is the leader of the group responsible for the Universal Conflict Saga.
- Make My Monster Grow: He performs this on Kamioren to help them be "the strongest" with the Universe Seed, growing the Tuffle fusion to a bulkier, colossal form in the anime adaptation.
- Mysterious Past: Nothing is really known about Hearts as a character or why he wants to destroy the Omni-Kings, making him a very one-dimensional character. Not surprising considering who he may be inspired by. The manga adds a little more to his motivations where he claims that mortals subconsciously don't want to be ruled by gods and he believes that killing the gods of the Multiverse will help mortals realize their freedom. At least, his final moments in the anime version reveals that he sought to dethrone Zeno because of how dangerous Zeno's power is, and he plotted to free mortals by taking them down.
- Not-So-Well-Intentioned Extremist: He hides behind a veneer of good intentions, but this veneer is extremely superficial, and ultimately when Vegeta calls him out on this, he makes no bones about the fact that hes just out for his own gain in the end.
- Physical God: He ironically becomes one after absorbing the Universe Seed despite his hatred for all gods in the multiverse.
- Power of the Void: His Gravity Cages are cubes made from Hard Light energy that can vaporize anything trapped inside them for too long.
- Punny Name: His name derives from his ability to read people's "hearts".
- Purple Is Powerful: Hearts' aura is dark purple-colored and is quite a formidable opponent even the likes of Universe 11's Jiren.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: He has red eyes underneath his yellow-tinted shades, as if he didn't look evil already.
- Spikes of Villainy: As Ultimate Hearts, he has six spikes protruding from his back.
- Story-Breaker Power: While Hearts is a formidable fighter on his own, his gravity powers make it near impossible to get close to him, let alone fight him as he can simply immobilize opponents by increasing the gravity around them. Even a being as powerful as Jiren is completely incapacitated. Then he becomes Ultimate Hearts and his power outclasses nearly everyone to the point that Goku and Vegeta are forced to fuse into Gogeta to even the odds.
- Super Mode: Has a form called "Super Hearts" which is powerful enough to be on par with Super Saiyan Blue Goku and as the Ultimate Godslayer, he gives a Curb-Stomp Battle to all the heroes during the final fight against him.
- Telepathy: He can read people's hearts. During the game campaign, he asked Hit who was the strongest person in the twelve universes, and despite Hit not saying anything, Hearts could read his thoughts, thinking of Jiren from Universe 11. In the manga, he uses it to predict Hit's moves and so to easily counter his Time Skip and overpower him, though Hit later adapts by thinking of an attack before switching to another one while skipping time.
- Villain Has a Point: Given all the Jerkass God moments from the Battle of Gods Arc, the Future Trunks Arc, the Universe Survival Arc, etc., can you blame him for wanting a Multiverse with no gods? However, this falls flat when it turns out his motives are superficial, and he's really just out for his own gain.
- Walking Shirtless Scene: When he takes off his coat and powers up into "Super Hearts".
- World's Strongest Man: He has proven to be one of the strongest characters in Heroes, with his gravity manipulation he brings down the main heroes to the ground, has used one of his gravity cubes to destroy a planet with ease and powerful enough to restrain even the mighty Jiren. As Super Hearts, he fought on par with Super Saiyan Blue Goku and eventually defeated him with his Gravity Fist. As the Ultimate Godslayer, Hearts can erase Zamasu from existence, wipe out an entire city and has easily dominated the main characters without breaking a sweat.
- Worthy Opponent: In the game, he fights against Jiren along with Cumber and Zamazu but the mighty Pride Trooper manages to beat them. Hearts then notes that Jiren is worthy of being called the strongest mortal in the Multiverse. In the manga, he also seems impressed when Hit manages to counter his mind-reading and to land an attack on him.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Upon merging with the completed Universe Seed and becoming Ultimate Hearts, he kills Zamasu as he plans to kill all the gods, which includes him as well.
Cumber (カンバー, Kanba)
A mysterious and powerful Saiyan experimented on by Fu during his Prison Planet experiments.
- Adaptational Badass: In the game Cumber was unable to keep up with Vegito Blue even as a Super Saiyan, whereas in the anime his base form was able to keep up with Vegito Blue using the base Kaio-ken state.
- Adaptational Wimp: In the game and the anime, Cumber easily defeated Toppo even after he used his God of Destruction form, whereas in the manga Toppo was able to fight evenly with him in Super Saiyan form.
- Affably Evil: Despite being called the Evil Saiyan, he has some shred of affability as he claims to like Goku, Vegeta, Trunks and the others for challenging him. When Vegeta defeats him with his own Evil Ki, Cumber sincerely congratulates his foe before falling unconscious.
- Always Someone Better: The only character so far to have actually bested Vegito in combat in the anime. Xeno Vegito on the other hand
- He's on the receiving end of this by Jiren in the original game as Jiren was able of defeating him, Zamasu and Hearts at the same time, and in the manga where Fu states that Cumber has no chances to win against Jiren.
- Ancient Evil: He's an ancient Saiyan who was brought back via Fu.
- Ax-Crazy: He's in a straight jacket for a reason.
- Barbarian Long Hair: Similar to Raditz, Cumber has long black hair that reaches his legs.
- Berserk Button: When he sees Goku as a Super Saiyan God he absolutely freaks out. Which implicates that he has either seen or fought against a Saiyan with red hair.
- The Berserker: He is powered by pure evil and Unstoppable Rage, and he fights without finesse or mercy.
- Blood Knight: He is battle-thirsty, and loves to have a good brawl. "Fight me!" is basically his Catchphrase.Cumber: Fight me!
- Bound and Gagged: Stuck in a straight-jacket and mask, though he can create two demonic floating hands beside him. And he can break free from his binds once he get serious enough.
- The Brute: Hes pretty much the muscle of Hearts group.
- The Corrupter: His ki is so evil that merely touching it will corrupt anyone and cause them to go berserk, as seen with Goku.
- Alongside Turles, he tries to convince Vegeta that evil is the way of the Saiyan race. Vegeta contemplates his own Character Development across the franchise, but concludes his disagreement by showing them both the overwhelming power he has gained from his own indomitable pride.
- Determinator: Just like Goku and Vegeta, even when faced by a much superior opponent and/or heavily injured Cumber won't give up and will continue to try to fight. In the manga, he tries to challenge Jiren to a fight despite the Pride Trooper being very superior to him as he easily took down Ultimate Kamioren, the same Kamioren who accidentally injured and knocked Cumber out of Full Power Super Saiyan 3 with one attack, and after Golden Metal-Cooler blasted a hole through him he still managed to stand up and to power-up until Cooler used a quadruple Golden Super Nova attack to knock him out. Even as he was falling unconscious, Cumber was still asking Cooler to fight him, showing how stubborn and strong-willed he is.
- Disc-One Final Boss: He was the main threat of the Prison Planet saga, yet he was only a minor menace, as there is a whole group working with him including Zamasu in the next saga.
- Dramatic Unmask: When Vegeta defeats Cumber on Pseudo Planet Vegeta, his mask shatters, revealing his face for the first time. Surprisingly, there's nothing nightmarish under there. In fact, he's quite handsome and heavily resembles Goku (or Turles, or Raditz, or Bardock).
- Edible Theme Naming: Cucumber, named after a vegetable like all Saiyans. Although cucumbers are actually fruit...
- Due to Kale and Dragon Ball Super's reinterpretation of Broly being overall decent people, Cumber was created using the original Broly's most superficial elements: Evil Is Bigger, Card Carrying Evil, The Juggernaut, a weird color in the transformations and a personal incident with another good Saiyan, implied to be Yamoshi.
- Cumber likewise is based on Beerus's original concept, as a dark entity capable of turning people evil like a virus.
- Evil Sounds Deep: He is called the "Evil Saiyan" or "Saiyan of Evil" (悪のサイヤ人, Aku no Saiyajin) by Fu, is Ax-Crazy, and has a very deep voice.
- Generic Doomsday Villain: He is the evil Saiyan, he may have had something to do with the original Saiyan god... and that's it.
- The Gloves Come Off:
- The moment Vegito goes Kaioken, he decided to fight seriously and unleash an artificial moon to turn into a Golden Great Ape.
- He goes Super Saiyan 3 as soon he challenges Super Saiyan 4 Goku and Vegeta Xeno.
- Graceful Loser: Although Cumber never gives up easily, even he can't help but smile contently as Vegeta takes control of his Evil Ki and defeats him with it.
- Hidden Depths: In the manga adaptation of the Prison Planet saga, he recognizes what a Super Saiyan God is, and even scares him, implying he met something like it before.Cumber: Red hair... a Saiyan with red hair!!!
- Mysterious Past: Cumber's backstory is simply never revealed, with the only hint of backstory he has is that he fought a red-haired-Saiyan implied to be Yamoshi.
- Mythology Gag: The overall concept of an evil entity capable of turning people evil is taken from Beerus' original concept.
- Only Six Faces: Once his mask breaks, it's revealed Cumber's face is almost exactly like most Saiyan males, virtually indistinguishable from Goku's barring his hairstyle.
- Physical God: This guy is so strong that he could go up against Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken Vegito! However, he is bested by both Super Saiyan 4 Vegito Xeno and Ultra Instinct Goku.
- Shortly after invading Universe 11, he managed to defeat all the Pride Troopers (including Toppo, a newly-ascended God of Destruction) barring Jiren offscreen. He then manages to put up a decent fight against Jiren, although eventually even as a Super Saiyan he gets pushed back.
- Prophet Eyes: He has complete blank eyes just to prove how insane he is. After freeing himself from his straightjacket, he recovers his normal eyes.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Oddly, hes the only pure-blooded Saiyan seen to possess irises in his base form (all other Saiyans have completely black pupils with no irises). And of course, theyre red, just in case his evilness wasnt obvious already.
- Spell My Name with an S: His name gets variably translated as "Cumber" or "Kanba".
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: A tall, bulky evil Saiyan that is stronger than the heroes? That sounds just like Broly, but without the green hair or the raw and petty hatred for Goku.
- Super Mode: He has the Super Saiyan transformation. When the moment arrives, he creates an artificial moon to turn into a Golden Great Ape. He's also able to go Super Saiyan 3.
- Walking Shirtless Scene: When he goes Full Power Super Saiyan 3, his shirt gets ripped off.
- Wolverine Publicity: Enforced Trope. He is a Saiyan, and is the most promoted character of Super Dragon Ball Heroes, even alongside established characters like Bardock and the cast from the original manga.
- The Worf Effect: After being The Juggernaut who simply won't go down even after being bested by Super Saiyan 4 Xeno Vegito, Ultra Instinct Goku, and Jiren, he is ultimately defeated by Golden Meta-Cooler. Downplayed in the manga where Cumber is heavily injured when Golden Meta-Cooler confronts him, just after his fight with Toppo and having been accidentally hit by Ultimate Kamioren, and Cooler doesn't give him any chance to recover and counter-attack.
- World's Strongest Man: In the anime, he is this in Golden Great Ape form, being 500 times stronger than his first form, which is already powerful enough to fight with base Kaio-Ken state Vegito Blue. And has enough power to match the likes of Jiren and Golden Meta Cooler in power and strength.
Zamasu (サイボーグザマス, Zamasu Saibōgu)
An alternate version of Fused Zamasu, implied to have been rescued by Fu for an experiment. He joins a group of villains for dark purposes.
- Adaptational Wimp: Significantly weaker than he was in Super, going from being able to go toe to toe with SSB Vegito to only being on equal standing with Future Trunks using Super Saiyan.
- Arch-Enemy: Future Trunks. In any given group battle scene, the two will be seen split off from the rest just to duel each other.
- Came Back Strong: Video game only. He is stated to have become stronger, but this being a videogame, is hard to tell. He overwhelms Super Saiyan 2 Kefla, and later fights evenly with Jiren. His previously gimped Healing Factor is now complete and he can sustain damage without mutating.
- Complete Immortality: Unlike his previous self, his immortality is now complete. Thanks to this, he can tank even Jiren's hits despite being no match for him offensively. It is also implied that this how he came back from being erased out of existence by Zeno which will mean that in this continuity, he can come back from nothing.
- Demoted to Dragon: Once the Big Bad of his own arc, now he's been relegated to The Brute and just muscle power for the Big Bad Ensemble he is a part of.
- Ex-Big Bad: Zamasus defeat in the Future Trunks Saga wasnt the last we saw of him. Hes back again but now mostly Demoted to Dragon for Hearts.
- Eyepatch of Power: Zamasu wears an eyepatch on the side of the face that was destroyed by Goku back in the Future Trunks saga.
- Fantastic Racism: He may be working with mortals and gods, but he still despises them both greatly. During the game's campaign, Oren suggests that since Saiyans also exist in Universe 6, they go there, which Zamasu doesn't react to favorably.Zamasu: Don't order me around, mortal...
- Hidden Agenda Villain: It's not clear why he's working with a group of mortals to destroy the Zenos when he himself used to hate mortals with a passion. Whenever someone asks him about this, he just sidesteps the question.
- Joker Immunity: The last time we saw him, his physical body was destroyed and he was completely erased alongside the timeline his essence had infected shortly after. Later, Hearts seems to have killed him off for real, but considering the previously set precedent, he may have survived.
- Motive Decay: The same Zamasu that wanted complete genocide on all mortal life due to them being violent creatures and wanted all the gods dead as well for being too lazy to do anything about them is working with mortals and gods in order to eradicate the Zenos. Lampshaded by Trunks during their fight, who questions why he's working with mortals after seeking their eradication, though he doesn't get a proper answer.
- Revenge: Take a wild guess, he wants revenge against the mortals and gods who foiled his Utopia.
- The Starscream: In the manga, he tries to betray Hearts and to take the Universe Seed for himself but is foiled by Lagss who encases him in Crystal before he can get the seed power.
- This Cannot Be!: Has this reaction upon seeing Goku activate his Ultra Instinct.
- Tranquil Fury: Its clear that Vegeta and Future Trunks showing up to deal with Oren and Kamin really struck a nerve in him, and even though hes holding himself together emotionally a lot better than the last time he clashed with them, his murderous hatred of them hasnt changed one bit.
- Unexplained Recovery: It is never explained how exactly he survived being totally erased by Future Zeno or who rebuilt his body. Though it is implied that his Complete Immortality is what allowed him to come back. The official dragon ball wiki also states this as the reason.
- Unstoppable Force Meets Immovable Object: In his fight against Jiren, Jiren is the unstoppable force as the World's Strongest Man in the whole multiverse, while Zamasu is the immovable object with his Complete Immortality. A fight between those two could last a century.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: The minute Hearts gains his Ultimate form, he destroys Zamasu, reminding him that his goal is to destroy all the gods.
Oren (オレン) and Kamin (カミン)
Kamin: I hope they make worthy time-killers.
A pair of Neo Machine Mutant twins that started to cause havoc on Universe 6.
- Adaptational Wimp: They are very formidable in the anime version, but their manga incarnations are less impressive. Without going into power specifications, they can fight against almost everyone in the anime, including Hit, but in the manga, they are closer to combat pragmatists than straight up brawlers. Likewise, Oren's possession of Vegeta was absolute in the anime, but in the manga, Vegeta takes him out of his own free will.
- Artificial Human: A pair of Neo Machine Mutants, parasitic artificial life forms made by the Tuffles in order to be the ultimate warriors.
- Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: After merging with the Universe Seed, Kamioren is mutated into a colossal titan of its original form, easily towering everyone.
- Breath Weapon: Ultimate Kamioren is able to exhale a powerful purple beam to level city blocks.
- BrotherSister Team: A brother-sister twin duo that wreaks havoc wherever they go.
- Blood Knight: They're almost like Saiyans in this regard, taking a childish enjoyment in fighting and creating mayhem.
- Body Surf: Just like their inspiration Baby, they can control the body of their victims, with their hosts turning into slaves. In the game's campaign, the Sadala Saiyans are mind-controlled by them until Vegeta saves Cabba, Caulifla and Kale. Oren and Kamin later possess Caulifla and Kale offscreen, ending similar to Baby, with Oren taking control of Vegeta.
- The Brute: Takes over this role from Cumber after merging with Universe Seed.
- Calling Your Attacks:
- Crush Breaker!, Kamin charges a red energy shield around her, creating a powerful explosion.
- Smash Breaker!, Oren's variation. Is the same attack but in blue.
- Creepy Twins: Two twin Neo Machine Mutants with Baby's influence.
- Designated Girl Fight: Any time Kamin fights Caulifla and Kale.
- A combination of Future Android 17 and 18, combined with Baby. They are a pair of Neo Machine Mutants twins created by the Tuffles that want to kill all of human life due to their creators betraying them. Oren took most of Baby's role by taking over Vegeta and the result being very similar to Baby Vegeta.
- Kamioren's One-Winged Angel form resembles Agnilasa/Anilaza, who already resembled a similar-looking Tuffle creation known as Hatchiyack. Their ape-like proportions and role is also reminiscent of Baby's Golden Great Ape form.
- Edible Theme Naming: From fruits
- Oren comes from the word "orange".
- Kamin is an anagram for mikan, a type of orange.
- Fusion Dance: When Ultra Instinct Goku proves too powerful, the duo merge into a single being called Kamioren.
- Good Thing You Can Heal: Like Baby, they can regenerate from any injury they receive, making them tough opponents even for someone like Hit.
- Light Is Not Good: Kamioren is mostly white with red and blue stripes, making them look somewhat like a toothpaste tube, but is far more psychopathic than the sum of their parts.
- Informed Attribute: Despite Kamioren being called the "strongest" by their components, their performance becomes much worse, going from giving Vegeta and Trunks trouble to having their ass kicked by 17 and Piccolo.
- Omnicidal Maniac: They want to destroy all of humanity because their creators tried to destroy them afraid of their power.
- One-Winged Angel: As Kamioren is getting beaten into pieces by Piccolo and Android 17, Hearts shrinks down the Universe Seed and forcefully implants it into the fusion. The result transforms Kamioren into a monstrous titan and serving the second-to-last boss before Hearts himself.
- Otherworldly and Sexually Ambiguous: The male-coded Oren with the female-coded Kamin combine into a gender-neutral looking Kamioren.
- Paper Tiger: Kamioren, despite how much of a menace Kamin and Oren were separately, is hardly a threat the twins were. 17 and Piccolo handle them rather easily without much effort, and even when they've forcibly given the Universe Seed, they don't do much damage to keep them out of the fight, and is dealt with rather quickly.
- Physical God: Kamioren with the power of the Universe Seed is a titan of destruction, easily defeating the Z-Fighters until Goku activated the incomplete Ultra Instinct again. In the manga, Ultimate Kamioren easily knocks out Toppo in his God of Destruction form and accidentally knocked Cumber out of Super Saiyan 3 with just a swipe of its arm.
- Psychopathic Manchild: Neither of them are exactly mature.
- Purple Is Powerful: Seeing as Kamioren is the merged form of the red-themed Kamin and the blue-themed Oren, they sport energy blasts, an aura, and a gem in the merged color of purple. They proudly proclaim themselves to be "the strongest" together. However, this is largely an Informed Attribute.
- Recurring Element: A pair of twin villains just like Shun Shun and Haru Haru (who weren't in the manga adaptation), and the second BrotherSister Team after Android 17 and 18.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Kamioren adopts this trait once it's merged with the Universe Seed, signalling that they've gained a serious power boost.
- Spared by the Adaptation: In the manga, Kamioren is defeated by Jiren who hit it so hard that it defuses in Kamin and Oren. The twins are then captured by Dyspo.
- Spell My Name with an S: Oran is the alternate translation for "Oren", keeping it closer to the name origin.
- Transformation of the Possessed:
- When the twins possess Kale and Caulifla, they mutate the Saiyan girls' base forms to adopt white hair and red Facial Markings. It's similar to Baby's case with Vegeta, except he didn't change Vegeta's base form hair color, only his Super Saiyan.
- When Oren possesses Vegeta, the Saiyan shares familiar traits of Baby's Super Baby 2 form, but replace Baby's vest with Oren's attire.
- Turned Against Their Masters: The Tuffles created them to be the strongest warriors in the universe, however, their power grew so greatly they tried to destroy them. The twins killed the Tuffles, and started their genocide on all mortal life.
- Villainous Breakdown: In episode 13 of the anime, when Kamioren is on the losing end of his fight with Piccolo and Android 17, he flips his shit and unleashes a powerful explosion while ranting that he's the strongest.
- Voice of the Legion: Kamioren speaks with his counterparts shared voices, just like Potara fusions.
- Would Hit a Girl: Oren doesn't mind fighting the female Saiyan, and is unlikely he would mind killing female humans.
- White Hair, Black Heart: Whenever the malicious twins possess someone, this is the end result.
Lagss (ラグス, Ragusu)
An enigmatic member of the Core Area Warriors who follows Heart's orders. She is a member of the Glass Tribe, a race of aliens with the ability to manipulate glass.
- Combination Attack: Performs one with Hearts, encasing herself in a glass shell while Hearts uses his gravity powers to increase the shell's weight, crushing the opponent. This was powerful enough to revert Goku into his base form, allowing Lagss to finish him off with glass shards.
- The Dragon: So far, this appears to be her role as Hearts' loyal lackey.
- Glass Weapon: She can manipulate glass.
- Hypercompetent Sidekick: Is clearly the most no-nonsense and competent of Hearts' followers in the manga where she foiled Zamasu's attempt to betray Hearts, saves Hearts from Jiren and Hit and gave him the Universe Seed so he could increase his power.
- Last of Her Kind: Her profile on the SDBH anime site says she's the last of the Glass Tribe.
- Light Is Not Good: Her design invokes this, with a completely white outfit with gold decorations, alongside a very pale skin and Icy Blue Eyes, and considering she is working with a group with universal plans, she is definitely up to no good.
- No-Nonsense Nemesis: Lagss doesn't play around. After she and Hearts weaken Goku with a Combination Attack, she immediately finishes him off with glass shards.
- Out of Focus: She has received the least attention out of the six members in the anime. She appears more consistently in the game and manga versions, however.
- Significant Anagram: Her name is an anagram for "glass", referencing her ability to manipulate glass.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: In the anime she disappears after the fight in Universe 11, last seen defeated off-screen by Golden Metal Cooler. In the game and manga, she is shown to be absorbed by Majin Ozotto.
Besides tropes featured in Xenoverse, this incarnation of Demigra features examples of:
- Adaptational Badass: Dragon Ball Heroes makes him stronger than his Xenoverse counterpart, and gives him at least one more transformation.
- Bishōnen Line: His Transcended Form crosses it, which is essentially "human" Demigra's upper half with legs and a tail like Demigra Final (plus spiky Super Saiyan-like hair).
- Depending on the Writer: He is either associated with the Dark Empire (The Heroes commercials) or is his own independent villain (Xenoverse and the Heroes manga). The game itself splits the difference by having him associated with the Dark Empire until the "Dark King Mechikabura" Saga, where he turns against them.
- Enemy Mine: He joins forces with the heroes to defeat Mechikabura.
- Evil Versus Evil: Him against Mechikabura in the "Dark King Mechikabura" Saga.
- Make Wrong What Once Went Right: Demigra attempts this by helping his past self betray Chronoa, though his plan is foiled by the Time Patrol.
- Man Behind the Man: In the manga, he was in charge of Chamel making an alliance with the Time Patrollers.
- Voiced by: Megumi Toyoguchi
- Edible Theme Naming: Her name is derived from "Sauce Robert", of which is a brown mustard sauce derived from Demi-glace (of which her boss's name is based on).
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Like with most demons, she has red eyes.
- Spell My Name with an S: Some translations have her name spelled as "Robelu".
A former member of the Galactic Patrol and the original Time Patroller that is an enemy to the Supreme Kai of Time due to his fierce sense of justice.
- Big Bad: He is the main antagonist of the video game Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission on the Nintendo Switch.
- Bishōnen Line: He looks pretty alien with tentacle dreadlocks and a bulky body that looks like Cell or Frieza, but his fusion with Ahms turns him into a slender black humanoid with white hair.
- Dreadlock Warrior: An interesting variation due to his hair being tentacles, but looking like Predator-like dreadlocks.
- Fusion Dance: He fuses with Ahms for the final battle at the Time Nest.
- Non-Standard Character Design: He is much bulkier and more intricately-designed than any other Galactic Patrolmen seen in the franchise. Maybe he was kicked out for showing the others up?
- Promoted to Playable: In the first major content update for his debut game, he was given a card and made playable.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: He believes in his own brand of justice, implied to be regarding the Time Travel Taboo of the Supreme Kai of Time.
- Fusion Dance: Throughout the game, he absorbs Frieza, Cell, Goku Black, and Hit to become more powerful.
A mysterious Mad Scientist character in a white lab coat who has his own objective to gather battle data from Goku and Vegeta. His true identity is the humanoid form of Dr. Wheelo, or an alternate version of him at least.
- Awesomeness by Analysis: He deconstructs Xeno Goku and Vegeta by analysing their fighting styles and weaknesses, then uses that combat data to enhance a newly revived Janemba.
- Beard of Evil: His human form has a white goatee.
- Brain in a Jar: As it turns out, his humanoid form, while presumably based on Wheelo's original human appearance, is merely a facade. Beneath it, he is still stuck in a cyborg body with his brain exposed in a glass casing, though this metallic shell is much more compact than before.
- Canon Character All Along: It turns out he is actually a new version of Dr. Wheelo, the Big Bad of ''The World's Strongest''.
- Confusion Fu: He fires energy waves from unpredictable angles, making him a tricky opponent to deal with.
- Cyborg: Although he looks human, he reveals that he is still a Brain in a Jar cyborg, though a much sleeker and stronger model than before.
- Evil Old Folks: He looks like an elderly human scientist, but he can throw down with Xeno Goku and Vegeta in their Super Saiyan 3 (and later, Super Saiyan 4) transformations and his plans are decidedly sinister.
- Evil Plan: His original plan was to resurrect Janemba, but since that scheme barely got off the ground, he has continued to show up as an obstacle for the heroes.
- Mad Scientist: A typical one, though he is much more capable in combat than he looks.
- Red Right Hand: The claw-like appendage on his right arm is an early hint to his true identity.
- Technology Marches On: Invoked. In contrast to the crude, towering cyborg body from the second Z movie, his cyborg form here is far sleeker and more compact. He has also found a way to shrink his brain back down to normal size.
- Took a Level in Badass: Compared to the original Dr. Wheelo who was defeated by the combined efforts of the Z-Warriors during the Saiyan arc period, his humanoid form is capable of outmatching Xeno Goku and Vegeta in their Super Saiyan 4 forms.
Another mysterious masked Saiyan resembling Goku who wreaks havoc throughout Fu's newly created Pseudo-Universe. Turns out he is an alternate version of Goku Black.
- Adaptational Wimp: In the promo anime, only a powered-up Super Saiyan Blue Gogeta is able to put this version of Goku Black down. In the game and manga, Gogeta defuses early, forcing Goku and the Warrior in Black to finish Black with a combined Kamehameha. However, its heavily implied that the reason Goku and the Warrior In Black were able to kill Goku Black was because he had already been critically wounded from Gogeta Blue Evolveds assault on him shortly before.
- Alternate Self: An alternate version of Goku Black, and by extension Zamasu.
- The Warrior in Black Clothes, a mysterious being who also resembles Goku and has pursued Crimson through time and space to stop his Evil Plan.
- His main counterpart was already this for killing Goten and Chi-Chi, but this version goes even further by killing 99 alternate Gokus prior to encountering the current one.
- Big Bad: Of the "New Space-Time War" Saga.
- Captain Obvious Reveal: Invoked. Although his identity is treated as a mystery, it can be quite easily deduced that he is Goku Black, especially when he uses his "Subarashii!" catchphrase. Later, his Super Saiyan Rosé form is revealed, which seals the deal. It seems that his identity is less significant compared to the Warrior-in-Black, whose name has yet to be revealed.
- Evil Counterpart: To Goku, of course. He fully embraces his status as Goku's ultimate dark mirror by going on a killing spree throughout the multiverse, racking up a body count of 99 parallel timeline Gokus.
- Evil Twin: A mysterious evil entity who resembles Goku. That's because he is actually Goku Black, who had stolen Goku's real body.
- Fantastic Racism: As always, he shows disdain for mortals, Saiyans in particular, despite being in the body of one himself.
- Hero Killer: He has already murdered 99 Expendable Alternate Universe Gokus. The main 'Capsule Corp Goku' of Super Dragon Ball Heroes is his one-hundredth target.
- No Body Left Behind: After Gogeta beats him to death, he quickly disintegrates into nothing in a manner not unlike a God Of Destructions Hakai attack.
- Omnicidal Maniac: Has gone from attempting to wipe out mortals in one timeline, to wanting to wipe out all mortals in every reality.
- Planet Destroyer: He obliterates the Pseudo-Universe's Planet Vegeta when Goku puts him on the backfoot.
- Polite Villains, Rude Heroes: Speaks with a refined, intellectual manner in contrast to Goku's crass demeanor, which serves as yet another clear hint to his true identity.
- Red Herring: The mystery of his true identity, which is revealed early on, proves to be secondary to the mystery of the Warrior-in-Black, another disguised Saiyan.
- The Rival: He is pursued throughout the Pseudo-Universe by yet another mysterious disguised Saiyan known as the Warrior in Black. The Warrior in Black also strongly resembles Goku and can match the Crimson-Masked Saiyan's Super Saiyan Rosé 3 form with a mere regular Super Saiyan transformation.
- Took a Level in Badass: After slaughtering 99 alternate versions of Goku throughout the timelines, he has grown powerful enough to match Capsule Corp Goku's Ultra Instinct Sign transformation and even implies that he has already killed at least one parallel Goku who had reached said form. Furthermore, he can boost the power of Super Saiyan Rosé to a Super Saiyan 2 level... And even a Super Saiyan 3 level. Eventually, he manages to attain his own unique equivalent of Super Saiyan 4, which allowed him to steamroll a powered up Vegeta, along with Frieza and Cooler in their Golden forms simultaneously. In the end, only Super Saiyan Blue Evolved Gogeta had what it took to put him down.
Yet another mysterious disguised Saiyan character who heavily resembles Goku, though this one seems to be working against the Crimson-Masked Saiyan. He is later shown to be one of many hooded warriors in the employ of Aeos, the former Supreme Kai of Time.
- Alternate Self: Heavily implied to be another alternate version of Bardock, judging by his familiar techniques and his resemblance to Goku.
- Anti-Villain: He helps Goku and the others resist the Crimson-Masked Saiyan and he later uses the Dragon Balls to restore the natural balance of the universe by erasing Fu's parasitic Pseudo-Universe. However, his allegiance to Aeos throws his moral alignment into question.
- Black Cloak: He and his comrades wear dark cloaks to conceal their identities.
- Identical Stranger: Lowering his hood reveals that he has the exact same hair as Goku.
- Inexplicably Awesome: His regular Super Saiyan transformation is somehow able to keep up with Goku Black's Super Saiyan Rosé forms, which are powered by divine ki. It seems that he and the other cloaked warriors are empowered by Aeos's dark magic, similar to Towa's masked servants.
- No Name Given: He claims to have abandoned his name long ago. So far, he has only been referred to as the Warrior in Black.
- Super Mode: He confronts the Crimson-Masked Saiyan as a basic, yet unusually strong Super Saiyan, which allows the Warrior In Black to hold out against his foe until the Crimson Masked Saiyan is forced to go Super Saiyan Rosé 3 just to take him down. Later, he goes head to head against Ultra Instinct Sign Goku as a dark magic-empowered Super Saiyan 3.
A group of hooded warriors of various species under the employ of Aeos. They participate in the Super Space-Time Tournament hosted by their leader.
- Alternate Self: The "Future Warrior" and "Namekian Warrior" turn out to be alternate timeline versions of Future Gohan and Piccolo, respectively.
- Angst? What Angst?: In the manga, the Female Warrior acts as if she's not bothered by being the sole survivor of her race. This gets Subverted when Hearts reads her mind to reveal that she is bothered by it (though she tries to deny it).
- Ascended Meme: After the Future Trunks arc of Dragon Ball Super finished airing, fans commonly speculated how the arc would have gone if Zamasu had stolen the body of Gohan instead of Goku, creating "Gohan Black" instead of Goku Black, with particular focus on how Trunks could have reacted to fighting a villain with the face of his beloved mentor. After this popular What If? concept has featured in many fan works, Heroes officially gives us an emotional showdown between Time Patrol Trunks and a dark-clothed Gohan as a "close enough" do-over of sorts.
- Black Cloak: They all wear dark cloaks to conceal their identities.
- Dark Is Evil: They all have darkened auras enhanced by the Dark Dragon Balls, which explains their incredible power levels. And while not entirely evil, they certainly aren't up to any good.
- Foil: This team's version of Gohan acts as one to Jiren, surprisingly enough. Both of them narrowly survived an attack that took all of their remaining loved ones away from them, and both resolved to never be as weak and helpless again. Whereas Jiren channelled his pain and grief into becoming his universe's greatest superhero and martial artist, this Gohan gave into despair and joined Aeos to get a taste of the power that he desperately lacked, losing sight of himself in the process.
- Last of Their Kind: The Female Warrior in Black becomes this, after Laggs has been absorbed by Majin Ozotto.
- Palette Swap: Beneath their already black cloaks, Gohan and Piccolo simply wear black variations of their usual outfits.
- Rescue Romance: The Female Warrior in Black becomes smitten with Yamcha, after he saves her from being killed by Hit.
- Smurfette Principle: There is only one female Warrior in Black, who turns out to be a new member of the Glass Tribe, the race that Lagss also belongs to.
- Stepford Smiler: The Female Warrior in Black acts rather sunny compared to the others, but this is to mask her loneliness of being the last of her kind.
- Tragic Villain: The Gohan recruited by Aeos hails from an alternate future timeline in which Trunks and Bulma were killed by Androids #17 and #18, a contrast to the main storyline in which Gohan dies in his friends' place. Blaming himself for the tragedy, he resolves to never be weak again and gladly accepts Aeos's Dark Dragon Ball power boosts, even though he has nothing left to protect.
Aeos once held the title of Supreme Kai of Time before Chronoa. Alongside her entourage of cloaked Warriors in Black, she now seeks to reclaim her authority by wiping out the increasing number of alternate timelines, which she believes have grown out of the gods' control in her absence. Her first move is to host the Super Space-Time Tournament, which a number of powerful warriors from different timelines attend.
- Big Bad: Of the Supreme Kai of Time saga.
- Control Freak: She believes that only one timeline is necessary and that all others are aberrations in need of culling. While she may be a control freak, she isn't entirely wrong as several other godly characters (including Beerus, Whis, and Gowasu) have commented that alternate timelines shouldn't exist and they place restrictions on time travel in order to prevent their propagation.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: he gives one to her successor Chronoa, while both were in their Time Power Unleashed state.
- Evil Counterpart: She is this to Chronoa. While Chronoa has good intentions and allows alternate timelines to exist, Aeos only cares about maintaining order and plans to wipe out the alternate timelines so that only one remains.
- Expy: Her motivations are basically the same as Zeno's in the Universe Survival arc, though she seeks to cut down the number of alternate timelines rather than the universes within them. Even her Super Space-Time Tournament resembles Zeno's Tournament of Power. Her design also seems to be based on an early unused concept sketch for Chronoa, possibly lending a neat meta angle to their rivalry.
- Hero's Evil Predecessor: To her successor, Chronoa.
- Physical Goddess: She is the former Surpreme Kai of Time, to the point she gives a Curb-Stomp Battle to her successor, Chronoa, and is able to fight evenly with Goku in Ultra Instinct Sign.
