Dragon Ball Super has spent much of its time expanding both the cosmos & the mythology of the Dragon Ball universe. As if 11 other universes each possessing their own Gods of Destruction, Angels & Supreme Kai weren"t enough, the series decided to lớn bring time travel bachồng inkhổng lồ the mix for its most complex villain origin story yet. Goku Black"s appearance in Future Trunks"s timeline is complicated, khổng lồ say the least. The body-swapping, time-traveling, multiverse-hopping villain has likely made more than a few viewers pause to lớn grab a pencil and paper.

Dubbed "Goku Black" by Future Bulma because he looks like Goku, wears black và is evil, the true identity of this villain is eventually revealed to be Zamasu, the apprentice khổng lồ the Supreme Kai of Universe 10. But where did he come from and why does he look like Goku? In order khổng lồ comprehover the series of events that led lớn Future Trunks"s timeline being destroyed again, it"s important khổng lồ underst& Zamasu himself.

A Supreme Kai"s responsibility khổng lồ their assigned universe is khổng lồ kickstart life, then simply observe sầu its progress. Zamasu hails from Universe 10, where he studied to lớn become the new Supreme Kai. However, Zamasu grows lớn despise the mortals he is tasked with watching over, seeing them as violent, selfish, ugly stains on the beauty of life. This hatred even warps inkhổng lồ a hatred for the other gods, who allow the mortals khổng lồ run rampant because they refuse lớn interfere.

Despite having an admittedly compelling origin story for a villain, Zamasu"s journey from a disgruntled Kai into lớn an evil clone of Goku required a tremendous amount of hoop-jumping. In the main timeline, thanks to lớn knowledge gained from Future Trunks"s arrival, Beerus travels to Universe 10 & destroys Zamasu, thus sparing the series" main timeline from his plans. However, in an alternate future where Beerus does not Destroy Zamasu, the evil Kai apprentice kills his master và steals his Time Ring before traveling khổng lồ Universe Six, trang chính of the Super Dragon Balls.

In this new, alternate future, Zamasu uses the all-powerful Super Shenron to wish khổng lồ swap bodies with that timeline"s Goku. As a Supreme Kai, he is severely limited in terms of combat strength, explaining why he wanted Goku"s Saiyan abilities, so that he may carry out his plan himself. Once Zamasu obtains Goku"s toàn thân và power, he promptly slaughters Gohan, Goten & Chi-Chi before using the stolen Time Ring to travel khổng lồ Future Trunks"s timeline. There, he joins the Zamasu of that time lớn enact Project Zero Mortals. It is here that he becomes known as Goku Blaông xã, as Future Trunks và Bulma are unaware of his real identity.

All that said, it doesn"t quite explain why Goku Blachồng turns pink. Zamasu"s wish transferred his being inkhổng lồ Goku"s body toàn thân, meaning he is now technically a Kai and a Saiyan, with access to all of Goku"s Saiyan power. When mortals lượt thích Goku và Vegeta use god power to become Super Saiyan, their hair turns xanh. However, Zamasu is a god, so when he uses god power lớn become a Super Saiyan, his hair turns pink, or Rosé, as he calls it. Put simply, Super Saiyan Blue and Super Saiyan Rosé are the same forms, the difference in color just reflects whether the user is mortal or a god.

Dragon Ball has always been a tín đồ of evil Gokus, like the non-canon Turles or when Captain Ginyu also stole Goku"s toàn thân. Super showed impressive determination to making another evil Goku, folding in the expanded series mythology as well as the return of Future Trunks for good measure. Unfortunately, most of Goku Black"s time in the series was spent explaining how he came lớn be in the first place. Zamasu"s plan probably would have worked if he didn"t have lớn spend so much time explaining it lớn everyone.
