Official “Dragon Ball Super” Website Unveils Universe 9 & 11 Characters and Voice Actors
Published by 10 February 2017, 11:19 AM EST

Toei’s official Dragon Ball Super website has unveiled character designs for several gods and fighters from Universe 9 and one god from Universe 11, all in conjunction with and anticipation of the new, on-going “Universe Survival arc” in the series.

界王神 ロウ


Universe 9
Kaiōshin: Rou
Voice Actor: Yasunori Masutani

The Kaiōshin of Universe 9. Tends to make fun of the other universes a bit.

While “rō” (老 meaning “old” or “elder”) has been used before in the series (in reference to the Elder Kaiōshin that had been locked away in the Z-Sword several generations prior), this new character’s name is written out in katakana (ロウ ro – u). Masutani had previously contributed the voices of the anthem singer at the Universe 6 vs. 7 tournament, and as noted via his Twitter account, the voice of the Universe 6 Kaiōshin (which was not credited during the respective episode).

破壊神 シドラ


Universe 9
God of Destruction: Sidra
Voice Actor: Yasuhiro Mamiya

The God of Destruction of Universe 9. Is indecisive and hardly able to destroy anything.

Sidra’s name (shi – do – ra) likely comes from the Spanish “sidra” referring to an alcoholic cider (fitting with previous God of Destruction puns on beer and champagne). Mamiya previously played a chef in the first episode of Dragon Ball Super.

戦士 バジル


Universe 9
Fighter: Basil
Voice Actor: Tsuyoshi Koyama

Also known as “Kicker Basil”, he’s the youngest brother of Trio the Dangers. A fast and agile warrior who specializes in footwork.

Basil’s name (ba – ji – ru) is taken directly from the word for “basil“. Koyama previously played one of the Barbarians during the “Future Trunks arc”.

戦士 ベルガモ


Universe 9
Fighter: Bergamo
Voice Actor: Eiji Takemoto

Also known as “Poison Bergamo”; the middle brother of Trio the Dangers. A warrior who freely manipulates poison. He always uses poison, and never wins fair-and-square.

Likely a pun on “bergamot” (ベルガモット berugamotto in Japanese), with the character’s name leaving off the final hard-“t” sound. Takemoto took over the role of Kewi in Dragon Ball Kai following the passing of Kōji Totani, and had played Namu in the 2007 video game Sparking! METEOR following the passing of Kaneto Shiozawa.

The third and final member of the Trio of Dangers (トリオ・ザ・デンジャーズ Torio za Denjāzu) — Lavenda (ラベンダ Rabenda) — will be previewed in an upcoming issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump in Japan.

界王神 カイ


Universe 11
Kaiōshin: Kai
Voice Actor: Taishi Murata

The Kaiōshin of Universe 11. A gentle Kaiōshin with a strong sense of justice who values life.

The name “Kai” is self-explanatory (written here for the new character in katakana as カイ ka – i), likely coming from the 界 (kai) in “Kaiōshin” meaning “world”.

The “Universe Survival arc” began 05 February 2017 with the seventy-seventh episode of the television series. The Dragon Ball Super television series airs Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. on Fuji TV in Japan. The series is available for free and premium viewing on licensed sites such as Crunchyroll, Daisuki, and AnimeLab. New episodes are added — in their original Japanese language with accompanying English subtitles — the same day as their Japanese broadcast.
