Episode Summary

On Beerus’ planet, Goku and Vegeta are sparring with Whis while Beerus himself naps nearby. Mai interrupts their training, telling Goku and Vegeta to come with her: it seems that Trunks has disappeared! Shin notes how Future Trunks had come to this planet for training. A purple man suddenly appears, saying he will tell them what has happened. He calls himself “Fu” and claims to be a friend of Trunks, who has gotten mixed up in something terrible, and is now on the Prison Planet.

Vegeta wonders how Fu knows this, but Fu explains that it is only natural for him to investigate the situation since his friend is in trouble. Fu explains how many dangerous criminals from throughout the universe are gathered on the Prison Planet; they had better hurry or Trunks will be in trouble! With that, Fu disappears. Vegeta and Goku resolve to head off, while Whis is concerned about this “Fu” person. Shin meanwhile asks Mai to do him a favor.

Goku teleports himself, Vegeta, and Mai to the Prison Planet. Goku is amazed at the planet’s huge chains surrounding it, while Vegeta immediately senses someone’s ki… which turns out to be another version of Goku, dressed in odd, red clothes. While Fu observes things from a distance, this new Goku spots him and says “I found you”, then immediately transforms into Super Saiyan 4. This new Goku charges regular Goku, who counters by becoming Super Saiyan Blue.

While the two Gokus battle, Goku: Xeno figures that regular Goku must be his counterpart from another place, and wonders if he is an ally of “him”. As the fight continues, Goku flies up and hits his head on an invisible barrier. Goku: Xeno explains that this is a fully sealed-off space, so escape is impossible. The two Gokus each fire a Kamehameha at each other, which cancel each other out. Goku: Xeno says it was no use, though regular Goku does not know what he means.

Fu laughs; just as one might expect of the Saiyans, two Gokus make for extremely interesting specimens. Goku: Xeno angrily fires a blast at Fu, but he easily deflects it. Fu knows that Goku: Xeno was trying to use the Kamehameha clash to break through the sealed space, but assures him this is impossible. Still, it is incredible for Goku: Xeno to have thought up a plan like that on the spot; just what you would expect of the Time Patrol!

It turns out that Goku: Xeno is a member of the Time Patrol; he is a version of Goku from another dimension, who works as a trans-dimensional cop. Vegeta points out that Fu sure knows a lot about the Prison Planet, and Fu happily explains that he created it as a laboratory. He gathers strong warriors from different universes here and has them fight forever! However, Fu rightly figures that Goku: Xeno got captured on purpose, as part of his investigation.

Mai is angry that Fu lied to them, and wonders if Trunks is even here. Fu declares that Trunks has travelled through time, an unforgivable offense for a mortal, and so Fu is now having him pay the penalty. Besides, Fu knew bringing Trunks here would serve as excellent bait for the others. Vegeta demands to know where Trunks is, but Fu says they will have to find him themselves. Even if the group does locate Trunks, they will still need to gather a set of special Dragon Balls to escape the planet. Goku: Xeno already has one which Fu gave him, but the rest are all in the hands of strong prisoners.

Fu declares a start to his experiment and takes off. Elsewhere on the planet, Trunks awakens in a cell, and the doors mysteriously open. Venturing out, Trunks soon encounters Coola, who demands Trunks hand over the Dragon Ball, though Trunks does not seem to know what he is talking about. Fu monitors the situation on the planet from some sort of control room. All the players are assembled, and the most interesting experiment in the universe can enter its main phase. Behind Fu, a mysterious chained figure crackles with energy. Fu assures this “evil Saiyan” that his turn will come a bit later.

Next Time:
“Goku Goes Beserk! The Evil Saiyan’s Rampage!”

Episode Notes

  • Like the Dragon Ball XENOVERSE video game series before it, Dragon Ball Heroes has begun to take elements from the now-defunct MMORPG Dragon Ball Online, including the concept of a Time Patrol.
  • Fu is likewise a character originally created for Dragon Ball Online, though the incarnation used here is significantly updated from his original concept. (Fu also made a “re”-appearance in Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2 before surfacing again in Super Dragon Ball Heroes.) The character’s name is likely taken from the English word “future”:
    フューチャー (fyū·chā)  ›  フュー (fyū)
  • Though the alternate “Goku” character — the Time Patrol version with Super Saiyan 4 — is not actively referred to as “Goku: Xeno” in dialog during the episode, this title is taken directly from the series’ official website character biographies and the episode’s end credits, as well as previous Super Dragon Ball Heroes stories and supplemental information. This designation in the above episode summary is used for clarity.
  • The “evil Saiyan” (悪のサイヤ人; aku no saiya-jin) is not referred to by name during the episode, but prior to the episode’s debut it had already been revealed as “Cumber”. Being a Saiyan, he would take his name from a vegetable; in this case, it is likely “cucumber”, as his name is simply the end of the English word in katakana with its spelling otherwise intact:
    キューカンバー (kyū·ka·n·bā)  ›  カンバー (ka·n·bā)
  • Additional fighters appearing in Fu’s monitors include: King Cold (Freeza’s father from the original Dragon Ball series), Bojack (the main antagonist from the ninth Dragon Ball Z theatrical film), and Ozotto (the final boss from the 1994 Sega arcade game Dragon Ball Z: V.R.V.S.).

Staff & Cast Notes

  • As with the Dragon Ball GT and Dragon Ball Super TV series, the role of Shin (the Universe 7 Kaiōshin) is portrayed by Shin’ichirō Ōta, rather than the character’s original voice actor Yūji Mitsuya.
