Although the same and you already have your suspicions…
From the second stage From Dragon Ball, we have seen how Akira Toriyama has been shaping his characters to be great antagonists of powerful villains, whether with alien beings like Frieza or with creations of human engineering like Cell and Androids 17 and 18. However, what?what is the true rival of the franchise? The more the franchise has grown, it seems that the answer is diluted.
The first response that comes to mind when we think of this saga is, without a doubt, that of our protagonists. Goku and Vegeta have been rivals ever since they met.something that has been maintained even in the last chapters of Toyotarou and Toriyama’s work.
Vegeta met Goku for the first time after he invaded Earth along with his partner Nappa, their mission was to destroy the planet’s races. After their initial battle, Vegeta and Goku found themselves on the same side as they fought Frieza and his army on Planet Namek, where Goku once again proved his superiority by unlocking Super Saiyan form for the first time, while Vegeta hadn’t even done it. dreamed of accomplishing such a feat. Let us remember that, for this moment, there was only the legend of the legendary warriorthere was no such possibility for any saiyan.
Since then, Goku has always been one step ahead of Vegeta. in terms of power level upgrades, transformations, and other power kills that go way beyond the established limits, and while their relationship has grown over the years from reluctant ally to genuine friend (and Vegeta to caring about Goku’s family more than himself), their rivalry remains strong, as the saiyan prince will not rest until he finally surpasses Kakarotto.
But, this is not the only possible final antagonistic rivalry, in Akira Toriyama and Toyotarou’s Dragon Ball Super Chapter 29, fans become aware of another rivalry, one that is much older and fiercer than Goku and Vegeta’s. In this chapter, all the Gods of Destruction are called to the temple of the great Zeno-sama, the almighty god, who plans to hold a multiversal tournament, later to be known as the Tournament of Power. As he reviews how the tournament should go, Zeno requests an exhibition match between all the Gods of Destruction. Not daring to reject the all-powerful king, all the Destroying Gods jump into the ring prepared for them and start fighting each other, although one fight in the middle of the actual battle is a bit more charged than the rest.
There is no single final rival in Dragon Ball Super
At the end of the match, the Destroying God of Universe 7 (or the main Dragon Ball Universe) Lord Beerus is preparing to face the Destroying God of Universe 4, Lord Quitela. Evidently, these two had been waiting for this moment, since many years ago Quitela defeated Lord Beerus in an arm wrestling match and believes that this is enough to show that he is more powerful. However, earlier in the match, Beerus takes on all of the Gods of Destruction at once and emerges victorious, making it seem like the more powerful between the two is yet to be seen.
In that chapter, Beerus and Quitela decide to fix things once and for all, but Zeno ends the battle before the two can fight.. The conflict between Beerus and Quitela puts Goku and Vegeta’s to shame, as the Gods of Destruction have been at odds for much longer, and their mutual disdain is much more prominent in their relationship. Goku and Vegeta have at least reached a level of mutual respect and still train together in an effort to push each other to be the best they can be, a rivalry that is beneficial to both.
Thus, we see that the final antagonism of Dragon Ball Super could be taken on a larger scale, with the imminent rise of Goku and Vegeta as the strongest figures in the entire universe, It does not seem unthinkable that they end up fighting other gods of destruction like Quitela and Beerus do. It will be a matter of seeing the continuity of the saga to find out.
