The retcon makes no sense, I mean they could use the same excuse to have Shin and Kibito defused again (Dragon Balls), we could even have some casual Vegetto moments later, but I guess a fusion shouldn't get the main kill of the arc in this series for whatever the reason, right? It's a mere fanservice that kinda damages the story for me.
The retcon was invented for Merged Zamasu. He would defuse, and Goku and Vegeta could now win with SSB. Toyo then convinced him to bring back Vegetto, so the retcon was used on him too.
The anime kept it only for Vegetto, and disposed of Zamasu a different way. This is what I'm seeing in all the various translations

Yeah, otherwise we should start saying Toriyama was "forced" to come up with Androids 16, 17 and 18, to give Cell transformations, and everything else that wasn't originally his idea.

People thinking Toriyama has no power of decision REALLY should remember this is the guy who changed pretty much the entire BoG scenario. Post-Evolution Toriyama seems far from the "eh, do what you want, i just don't care" man back from GT days.

A bit more from the Toriyama/Toyotaro interview:
- Some nice talk in the ToriToyo interview about the struggles of writing a villain that's more complicated than just a bad guy to beat up.
- Toyo notes that Nozawa's Black voice was so sexy, there were many fan letters from girls about her performance

Why would the Pothala fusion between Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black (who is even stronger than SSB Goku and Vegeta) and Future Zamas (who's at least SS3 Boo Arc tier and has immortality) be weaker than just Goku SSB? Thank God Toei has its own set of writers.

Shhhh.

Don't mention this. It's too logical.
What's logical is that being from a different Universe means they can function differently. None of your bias matters in this case.
Sorry, but that excuse is just a lazy way to justify bad writing. And I'm not sure where people are getting this "different universe, different rules" from. When it's more "different events happening" more than anything else. The rules remain internally consistent for the most part. For example, it's not like we have any reason to believe that mastering ki requires a different method in U6 than it does in U7.

It has nothing to do with "bias".

In both the manga and anime, Future Zamasu is stronger than that.

The only explanation is that Black and Zamasu were even weaker in the original outline. I actually want to see how that would even work.

Goku barely took a backseat in the Buu saga, at best he took a leisurely stroll round back while everyone else cried for him to come back.

The likes of Kishimoto are better in that aspect.

Sorachi, Araki are probably the best imo.

Anime Black kinda reminded me of a JoJo antagonist.

The only way to make sense of the whole Merged vs SSB thing would be that Merged Zamasu would separate because of the pothala, and the SSBs would be strong enough to beat the Zamasus by separate. Then again, that would make SSR Black weaker than a SSB...which would kind of fit with Vegeta's speech about Saiyan Cells, yet would be extremely underwhelming.

I kinda expected Toriyama to say something about the great ending of this arc to be honest.
DB, Jojo and Gintama fan, and proud of being so. Sometimes I may never post, other times you will see my messages are over the forums.

According to Toei, Vegeta cares more about Cabba than for his own family. Vebba confirmed? Will we get drama between Golifla and Vebba in a Sadala arc? And will ma boi Gohan find love there as well?

English is not my first language. Please excuse my gramatical mistakes.

Except that’s not what happened with GT at all.
They ran the plot points through Toriyama first just like with Super and they got his input on it. If I remember the interview correctly he was even involved in meetings. Sounds like the production of Super is much closer to GT than it is to his manga or Z.

Yeah, otherwise we should start saying Toriyama was "forced" to come up with Androids 16, 17 and 18, to give Cell transformations, and everything else that wasn't originally his idea.

I heavily disagree with that. I can named several that did it better than Kishimoto.

Regular Zamasu was stated to be weaker than ssj2 Trunks, so he probably isn't stronger or even at ssj3 Buu saga tier in power. And SSR Black was SSB tier, not above. And I'm pretty sure the interview said they could beat him together as SSB, not by themselves (besides mastered SSB). It's like the same with Golden Frieza. He was stronger than 1 SSB, but together they would stomp him.

Oh sorry, I meant that even the likes of Kishimoto are better than Toriyama when it comes to making villains "complex".(Kishi did a good job with Zabusa, Pain, Kisame even Itachi)

Today we live in an Era where fans love complex villains, one of the reasons why Bleach was popular during the Arrancar Saga, because the fans loved Espadas(Ulquiorra, Nnotria, Grimmjow) and of course Aizen.

While currently in DBS we have Jiren, who is like a joke compared to the Espadas, Akatsuki, Genei Ryodan, Yonkou, etc. The ToP shouldve built up more antagonists, its probably one of the biggest flaws the arc has imo.

So basically the anime staff chose to beef up Merged Zamasu's strength, so that beyond his immortality, he was a genuine threat in battle. While Merged Zamasu remained below the realm of SSJB in the manga, as originally intended in Toriyama's plot outline.
It sounds like you are misinterpreting it or maybe you wrote it out wrong. Two SSB could handle him, but he is still above one SSB.

But none of the people you named are complexed.

Also, people liked different the of villains, not necessarily those who have great motives than being a dick. Why do you think people loved Disney villains despite most of them being evil for the sake of it. And Jiren isn't even a villain. He's just the strongest antagonist in the ring.

Trunks was even with Goku who currently took a roar from a God of Destruction that caused the Supreme Kais to faint while remained conscious in base form.

Well then, if they are so different then why not have them with unique Super Saiyan transformations? Even if they have a different evolution from the U7 Saiyans they still can acquire the same transformation, so people can question it's methods.

That same roar seemed to affect the GoD just as much as base Goku, so is base Goku and Trunks GoD tier? It may be more of a max power thing. I don't know the manga scaling was a little weird because it also makes it seem ssj2 Vegeta is leagues above ssj3 Goku. But to make sense of this lets say Goku and Vegeta are equal, then ssj2 Trunks<=base Black<ssj Black<ssj2 Vegeta=ssj2 Goku. Though it's impossible to say. However the fight between Trunks and Goku to me seemed like it was meant to show Trunks' power against ssj3, which doesn't work if Goku's current ssj3 is leagues above before, however I do think it is above Buu saga ssj3, however his ssj2 should still be below. But if Goku's ssj2 is equal to Vegeta's, then I would say Goku was holding back to his Buu saga strength against Trunks, and his actual ssj2 and 3 are far above Trunks.

You can question it's methods all you want, that doesn't change the fact that they are different and your guesses are as good as mine when it comes to stuff about these saiyans they don't blatantly tell us.

Masako receiving fan mail for her Black voice by fan girls is hilarious. Just shows how well she did with her performance.

They evolved differently (which is more of events being different than rules being different regardless).

That doesn't mean their "powers" work differently. That goes beyond simple evolution. You're basically telling us to not think about it because they're from a different universe.
