Beerus and Champa have decided to hold a tournament, and now the it is time to iron out the details. For the location, they pick the “Nameless Planet”, which floats in neutral space and is therefore fair to both sides. The planet is near a small sun, but otherwise devoid of anything, even an atmosphere. For the rules, Goku suggests making it like the Tenka’ichi Budōkai, where contestants lose if they surrender or fall out of bounds, and killing one’s opponent is against the rules. Weapons and performance-enhancing drugs are also prohibited. Furthermore, Vegeta insists on a simple written test, to prevent any monsters too stupid to understand the rules from participating. The tournament will begin at 7:00 PM one week from now according to the “8th Solar Calendar”, which Whis explains is in five Earth days. As Champa starts to leave, Beerus warns him not to chicken out, since this whole thing was his idea to begin with, and Champa likewise warns Beerus to uphold his end of the bargain. As a parting gift, Champa tosses Goku one last Don-Don Bird egg, which Goku awkwardly manages to catch.
Champa and Vados depart, with Vados wondering if it was a good idea to put the Super Dragon Balls they worked so hard to collect on the line like this. Champa is confident this will be an easy win, judging by Goku’s slow reaction time when he caught the egg. If he is the best fighter Universe 7 has to offer, then they have got this in the bag! Outside on Beerus’ planet, Goku and Vegeta remove their heavy clothing. Though Goku is excited for the tournament, Vegeta dismisses it as merely a stepping stone. His ultimate goal is to be No. 1, and defeat Beerus, Whis, Champa, and Vados! Goku wonders if Beerus will select the remaining fighters for their team, but Vegeta declares he will defeat all of the Universe 6 fighters on his own. Just as Vegeta is getting really cocky, Beerus calls out that they are leaving for Earth, and that he and Goku had better hurry. Vegeta meekly rushes off to join Whis and Beerus, much to Goku’s amusement.
At Capsule Corporation, Bulma is filled in on the situation. Although Whis wants her to build a machine for locating the final Super Dragon Ball, Bulma believes that there is a simpler way — they can just gather Earth’s Dragon Balls and ask Shenlong to tell them where to find the remaining Super Dragon Ball. Beerus is impressed, saying Bulma is not just a “stubborn old broad” after all. Bulma immediately slaps him, but Beerus lets this slide, due to her clever idea. Still in a subservient mood, Vegeta grabs the Dragon Radar from Bulma and promptly flies off to gather the Dragon Balls.
Over in “neutral space”, Champa and Vados bring their six Super Dragon Balls to the Nameless Planet. The balls are indeed planet-sized, each about the same size as the Nameless Planet, and the two arrange them in a circle around the planet. Champa takes this opportunity to provide the Nameless Planet with a name: he dubs it the “Empty Planet”. Vados compliments him on his fine naming sense, worthy of a God of Destruction, and says this will also be good for his diet, since thinking so hard uses up a large amount of calories. Speaking of Champa’s diet, Vados has him drink some 100% fruit juice made from the Niga-Niga Vegetable of Planet Yargo. The two then turn to renovating the planet into one suitable for a tournament. First Vados creates a dome-shaped shield strong enough to not be broken during the matches. She then fills it with the fragrant atmosphere of the highlands of Planet Zoreet. Next Vados creates a square arena, 50 meters by 50 meters. Champa insists Vados add snack stands, and finally she creates large portraits of both Champa and Beerus.
On Earth, Vegeta has very quickly finished gathering the Dragon Balls, and Bulma summons Shenlong, then kisses Vegeta for a job well done (he gets mad at her for catching him off-guard). Shenlong materializes, saying he will grant three wishes, but is startled to see that Beerus is still on Earth. Beerus calmly explains that Earth is now a very important location both for Universe 7 and 6. Bulma asks Shenlong to tell them where in Universe 6 the final Super Dragon Ball is located, but after a slight pause, Shenlong admits that this is beyond his power. Finding a single object in a vast universe is simply too much for him, let alone finding something in another universe! Whis comments that this shows the limits of Earth’s Dragon Balls. They conclude that they have to stick with their original plan of creating a radar capable of locating Super Dragon Balls. Shenlong timidly asks if they have any other wishes he could grant, but Beerus simply tells him “Get lost. That’s my wish.” Shenlong prominently obliges. After Shenlong has gone, Goku realizes he once again forgot to wish Kaiō back to life. Bulma thinks that is not important right now, but over on Kaiō’s planet, Kaiō seems dejected.
Back at the newly-christened “Empty Planet”, Champa is looking forward to his imminent victory over Beerus. Vados asks if he is decided on their five team members, and Champa says that those two guys over at Beerus’ place were Saiyans, so they will need to have a Saiyan on their team as well. They will go scout one as soon as they fix “that”. By “that”, it turns out Champa means his portrait: he’s not that fat in real life!
That night at Capsule Corporation, Beerus and Whis are enjoying some West City-style beef stew. It tastes so good that Beerus is more determined than ever not to hand Earth over to Champa. Whis says the two of them have to leave now, to go tell “Monaka” about the tournament. “Monaka” is the warrior Beerus has selected for Universe 7’s team; Goku and Vegeta can select whoever they want for the other two members, but Beerus insists on Monaka. In fact, it turns out Monaka is the strongest opponent Beerus has ever faced (Goku was merely #2). Goku is excited at the prospect of sparring against this mysterious person, but Beerus says his opponents are the Universe 6 fighters, and he should instead focus on beating them. Goku replies that it is hard, since he has no clue what those guys will be like. Besides, even if they lose and Earth gets moved to another universe, will it really affect their lives that much? Outraged, Beerus warns Goku not to forget the debt he owes him for not destroying Earth, and Goku assures Beerus that no matter what, he always gives fights his all. As Beerus and Whis depart, Goku tells them to give his regards to Monaka.
The next morning, Bulma has already finished building the “Super Dragon Radar”. Goku is amazed at her speed, but she explains her reasons for being in such a hurry. The scene flashes back to the previous night, right before Beerus and Whis left. As the two promise to pick Goku and Vegeta up at 1:00 PM five days from now, Bulma notes that Champa is kind of dumb. After all, with the Super Dragon Balls he could simply wish for the Earth of Universe 6 to be restored, or cut out the middleman and wish to receive delicious food every day; there’s really no need for this tournament. Beerus comments that no matter how smart Bulma may be, she still thinks like a human, not a god. For gods like them, the Super Dragon Balls are merely an excuse to fight. Since the two universes are counterparts to one another, if there are Super Dragon Balls in Universe 6 then Universe 7 should have a set of its own. Beerus says that a god like him does not make wishes, but if forced to, he might wish for the entire world to be obliterated. Wouldn’t that be fun! Bulma points out that if the world were destroyed, there would be nothing left for him to eat. Beerus laughs that she is right, and he and Whis depart.
Back in the present, Goku assures Bulma that Beerus was simply joking, but Bulma is not so sure. Since they have no way of telling what Beerus might wish for, she insists on gathering Universe 7’s set of Super Dragon Balls first in order to prevent his wish. Vegeta likewise assures Bulma that, while Beerus may be a God of Destruction, he still operates according to a logic of his own, and would not simply destroy the world for no reason. Since Goku and Vegeta will not help her, Bulma calls someone who will, her older sister Tights. Tights is sitting at a beach, and tells Bulma she has not heard from her in a long time. Bulma knows that Jaco received a new spaceship in return for his role in taking care of Freeza, and she asks how long it would take him to reach Earth with that ship. Tights thinks it would take 50 minutes, and Bulma asks her to tell Jaco to come over right away.
Off on an alien world, Jaco is sitting around balancing rocks on top of each other to create a tower, his new spaceship parked nearby (it looks nearly the same as his old one). When his phone rings, he yells at Tights for interrupting him during important Galactic Patrol business. Tights relays Bulma’s request to Jaco, but Jaco does not want to do it. He tells Tights to say she could not manage to get a hold of him, but Bulma is also on the line, and yells at Jaco so loudly that his rock tower crumbles (“It took all day to build that…”). Bulma threatens to send Vegeta after Jaco if he does not hurry on over, and Jaco reluctantly complies.
Back on Earth, Goku asks what Bulma wants Jaco for, but she refuses to tell him, instead saying he should go off and train. But Goku insists on first trying out the new Super Dragon Radar… but when he tries it, it does not pick up any signals. Bulma explains that Earth is out on the edge of the universe, so the radar cannot search the entire universe from here. She cannot build a more powerful radar, so instead they need to go to the center of the universe, where the radar will have better range. They have got to get those Super Dragon Balls first, and prevent Beerus from getting his way! Goku says that is all well and good, but requests that Bulma not do anything to interfere with the tournament itself. Bulma is annoyed: which is more important, the tournament, or the entire universe?! Goku laughs, saying he just wants to meet Monaka no matter what!
Similarly, the Planet Yargo is likely a rearrangement of the word gōya, the term used for the same bitter fruit on the main island of Okinawa. The Okinawan term gōya is now commonly used nationally across Japan to describe the bitter fruit.
