Dragon Ball Super‘s Future Trunk Saga is giving a few hints on Goku Black’s true identity as he interacts with Goku himself.

Goku Black is known to be the villain who stole the body of the original Goku. Black is actually the original Zamasu. According to the producers, he is one of the strongest fighters alongside the God of Destruction, Beerus.

Goku and Goku Black meet for the first time in Dragon Ball Super‘s 50th episode. Surprisingly, Black wasn’t totally what he seemed to be. He came across as someone else; someone more than just the evil future Goku.

Black didn’t expect Goku to challenge him to a battle upon locking eyes with him.

“I can’t begin to guess who or what you actually are, but Trunks down there tells me you’re really strong. Why don’t you show me,” Goku challenged.

During their fight, Black spoke about his body strengths and mentioned “you Saiyans.” He further stated that the wounds on his body will only make his body stronger. Goku was surprised, as Vegeta is the only who openly speaks of this Saiyan gift.

Black also possesses a Time Ring. Only Gods and Kais have access to this special artifact. However, Black was equipped with it and was able to use its power.

Dragon Ball has confirmed a new film to be released in 2018. The film will revolve around the first Super Saiyan God. The original creator, Akira Toriyama, will be contributing to the script and character designs.

“Very long ago, before Planet Vegeta was the Saiyans’ planet, there was a man named Yamoshi who had a righteous heart despite being a Saiyan. He and his five comrades started a rebellion, but he was cornered by combatants and became a Super Saiyan for the first time, though his transformation and fearsome fighting style shocked the other Saiyans,” Toriyama told Saiyko Jump.

“Outnumbered, Yamoshi eventually wore himself out and was defeated, but this was only the beginning of his legend. Afterwards, Yamoshi’s spirit wandered in continuous search of six righteous-hearted Saiyans, seeking a new savior: Super Saiyan God.”
