I assume the Universe since later, Herms states the context for the nullification scene "The universe fails to inexplicably end" along with thr visuals in the episode, like a light exploding and covering rhe universe all the way to the Kaioshin realm.
The term used is sekai
) and it's generally open to interpretation, but when they're going for "all of existence" that's the term they use. The line from episode 13:
Simmons: ...it produced a super-duper-high-density energy. If it were to burst open, then it would be the end of the world (sekai) for sure.
Toei: That clash also produced super, super highly dense energy. If that energy disperses, the world (sekai) is done for.
Dragon Team: ...that clash also produced super, *super* dense energy. If that energy disperses, the world (sekai) will end for sure.
One quote that's useful for demonstrating how sekai
is used to mean "absolutely everything" is this one from episode 47:
Toei: Zeno-oh sama can erase anything from existence in an instant. Not just evildoers, but stars (星/hoshi), galaxies (銀河/ginga), and even universes (宇宙/uchū). If he so wished, he could erase all existence (sekai).
Dragon Team: ...the King of All can wipe out anything in the blink of an eye. Naturally this includes evil-doers... Planets... (hoshi) Galaxies... (ginga) Even universes. (uchū) If he felt like it, our entire world (sekai) would be no more.
In this context, since "sekai" is the superlative above even "uchū", it has to mean "all existence" (or at least, the entire timeline).
