The first match in the dreaded Tournament of Power will kick off this week. A fight between Majin Buu vs Basil happens in the latest Dragon Ball Super episode 79 preview.
The pink alien will be facing off against Basil of Universe 9 who has extremely strong kicks. In the sneak peek for episode 79, Buu appears to be taking the battle lightly to the horror of Gohan and the rest of Universe 7’s fighters.
In the Dragon Ball Super episode 79 preview, Goku begs Buu to take the match seriously, Comic Book noted. Goku knows that Buu needs to win because this is a battle of survival now.
The winner of the tournament will be granted any wish they want from the Super Dragon Balls, EmptyLightHouse reported. The tournament, however, has dire consequences for the fighters who will lose their respective universes. Everyone were caught off guard by the harsh penalty.
The Dragon Ball Super Universal Survival story arc kicked off earlier this month. In the story, Goku suggested the Omni-Kings’ Tournament of Power martial arts tournament between universes. Every Kai and God of Destruction from every 12 universes, alongside the two Omni-Kings and Zen-Oh, gathered to see what the competition is like.
Dragon Ball Super Episode 78 Recap
In the previous episode, Zen-Oh’s assistant, the Great Priest, explained the details of the Tournament of Power. He said the battle will be held on the World of Void. It is a place of infinite nothingness where the warriors can fight without rules.
Zen-Oh then announced that all of the losing universes will be erased from existence. Goku did not want this to happen. He wanted to talk to Zen-Oh to change his mind
However, Whis told Goku that it is futile to do so as the king of all universes had already made up his mind. Goku will also be erased on the spot if he will defy Zen-Oh’s orders.
Moreover, Beerus demanded that Goku should take responsibility for asking Zeno-Oh to hold the tournament. Goku declared that he will defeat any opponent he will face to make sure that the Universe 7 will not vanish.
Before the actual Tournament of Power begins, the future version of Zeno-Oh wants to see a preliminary exhibition match. Three fighters of Universe 7 is up against three fighters from Universe 9. The Universe 7 fighters include Goku, Gohan, and Buu, while Universe 9 has three canine-like fighters as seen in the Dragon Ball Super episode 79 preview.
