But Whis would be out of job, meaning he can't function if Merus takes over with Moro. Whis would have to go back to the angel realm and I don't think Whis would appreciate just getting sidestepped like that. I bet Whis would be silently judging knowing he can't do anything and he'll have to wait for a universe of his own to appear.
Technically, all Whis told us is that a Guide Angel's function is suspended if a God of Destruction dies until a new God is appointed, which isn't quite the same thing as saying that an Angel is unable to do anything
if they're not a Guide Angel anymore - the example of Merus itself makes pretty clear that, subject to the usual constraints of Angelic Neutrality, even non-Guide Angels
can have a pretty broad scope of action, particularly if the Grand Priest sanctions it.

This makes me think - why is Beerus even a GoD? He doesn't like the job, and it's not like he's getting something out of it anyways from what we've seen. If anything, he's actually getting restricted by sharing a life-link with someone as prone to disasters as Shin.
Is he just doing it for the clout (the high position in the god hierarchy), or is it because becoming a GoD gives you greater power or something?
He could be doing it just to get Whis's coaching for free, but then again, see how easily Goku and Vegeta got the same treatment.
Also, I want to say - great username and picture lol.
Beerus likes the 'perks' of it - like he says, "Being a God of Destruction is amazing! You rarely have to work, and you can sleep for however long you want. All you gotta do is destroy some unnecessary planets once in a while. It's easy!" Of course, the things that Beerus values about being a God of Destruction are the same things that make him terrible at the job, and everyone knows it - even Shin's willing to say it to Beerus's face (not least because Beerus can't kill him for it).
(and thank you for the compliment).

I think if DBS had true courage it would kill Goku and/or Vegeta off for a year or so to let the other characters HAVE to develop more. I know their popularity makes that hard though and am realistic.
I get the logic of this position in theory
, but when you consider the times Goku has actually
died in the series so far, they've really just been springboards for him to surpass everyone even more completely than he already did, both in the Saiyan Arc and the Buu Arc (and in the Saiyan Arc, the other heroes had all the motivation they needed to get stronger).
I can't see a faithful portrayal of Goku's character allowing a little thing like death to lessen the gap between him and the heroes on the next tier down, however hard they work on it (we're in a world where Dead Freeza got noticeably stronger basically by just thinking
about it, after all), or even to keep him from the fights that go down in the meantime. You'd have to either erase him from existence (which would indeed be bold), or contrive to put him decisively beyond the reach of whatever the current battle is - and that's how we got the Garlic Jr. arc...
