Hey guys. As we saw in Dragon Ball Super Episode 119, that two more Universes kicked the bucket. Universe 2 and Universe 6 have been erased after losing all of their fighters. Ever since the beginning of the Tournament of Power, there were speculations that the Super Dragon Balls would be used to bring back. However, with the speculation of revival, there was also the speculation of Zeno getting mad at the revival of the Universes.
A new theory has appeared in Reddit, which tackles this problem. So, today I’m going to analyze this theory. Let’s begin. First and foremost, one thing is different about Dragon Ball Super than its predecessors and that is the continuity between the arcs. Secondly, the new characters have interesting designs as well as quite intriguing backgrounds. So, it’s very likely that their erasure is temporary and these erased universes will come back. But how?
The super dragon balls are the obvious answer.
However, as we know that Zeno held the whole tournament because there were too many universes, resurrecting the universes would mean going against his wishes. So, how can they effectively use the Dragon Balls without angering Zeno? There has been a suggestion of merging all the Universes with Universe 7. The writer of this theory disagrees with this particular suggestion. Merging universes would cause a lot of confusion. Not only among the people living but also among the Gods. It would be mean that only the God of Universe 7 will remain.
I’ll let his post do the rest of the talking—
“I think the answer has already been foreshadowed. In the Manga, it was shown that Zeno decided on the tournament while playing with F. Zeno. This means it would not have happened if not for the F.Trunks arc. At the end of that arc, our original timeline has 2 Zenos, the one F.Trunks moves to has 1, and his original has no Zenos whatsoever. This would be a perfect place to wish the destroyed universes back to – the only active divine beings are likely the Grand Priest and Zeno’s guards if they remain active without a Zeno at all.”
“As for the extent of destruction loosed on F.Trunks original timeline, that remains to be seen. We know F.U7 was destroyed and that all of the gods are dead in the others, but that’s all we know. I posit that either a. The other universes are intact with all of the characters we met in the ToP (besides gods), or b. This is where they will be wished back to.”
This is quite a fascinating read, I must say. This is one of the best theories that I have read in a long time. Credits for the theory goes to the redditor, Anyael.
