The Debut of the “Gods & Cosmos Guide”!
Published by 25 February 2018, 9:00 PM EST

Growing with each new adventure, the “Dragon World” has expanded from the small blue planet of Earth to the expansive twelve universes that comprise it. Along the way Akira Toriyama has also established a bureaucratic, hierarchical system of gods, from the individual planetary gods to the Omni-King, to oversee nearly every aspect of the world he has created.

In 2012 we began working on a “Gods & Cosmos Guide”, but with the then-upcoming Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods movie only months away from premiering, which would be introducing the series’ first God of Destruction, the guide’s development was put on hold. With a flourish of new information covering the make-up of the “Dragon World” coming from the movie, newly published guide books, and several new Toriyama interviews, we began re-working the guide. However, just as all this new information was finally incorporated into the guide, Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection “F” was announced, and then shortly thereafter the Dragon Ball Super TV series debuted. So now with Dragon Ball Super ending in March, it seems as good a time as any to finally unveil the “Gods & Cosmos Guide”!

The guide is split up into multiple sections covering the hierarchy of gods established in the series and their various responsibilities, as well as the general setup of the universe itself. Some additional sections are also included, such as an overview of the concept of gods and religion in the “Dragon World”, a detailed look at the governing rules of death and the afterlife in Dragon Ball, and a dissection of the various Dragon Gods that appear throughout the franchise.

While the guide as it sits now is up-to-date with the most current information, we do want to stress that this is a living guide that will continue to be updated as new information becomes available. In the meantime, the guide has been added to the main navigation and is live for your reading pleasure!
