I don't think we can tell from their symbols.
We should be able to, they clearly mean something, just the right algorithm is needed

Well, lets check some of them:

Beerus has 3 diamonds (Universe 7)
Champa has 3 spheres (Universe 6)
Robot GoD has 2 inverted triangles (universe 4 ?)
Fat Angel has 1 diamond (universe 1 ?)
Dwarf GoD has 2 inverted triangles and 1 sphere (universe 5?)

Maybe each symbol represent a number, or even the color that they are painted, there white and orange.

Somehow I knew that the clown and his attendant would gain a lot of popularity just from that one image. :think:

A lot of people seem to be comparing the angel in particular to Harley Quinn, but as someone who's never liked the character, I can't say that comparison is going to win me over.

I'm kind of wondering now, are all the angels supposed to be siblings, with the Daishinkan as their father?

We don't know that yet. The "angel" thing is a concept that is still to be worked upon.

imo Toriyama's design sucks such much lately.

Botomo= bear
Frost= rip-off Frieza
Robot
skinny saiyan

i really think he cannot design characters like Cell or Frieza anymore.

The fat angel could be an uncle lol.

No he could do better, see Mira and Towa.

Anyways, found a good picture of the Goddess of Destruction. She'll probably be my favorite out of the Hakaishins.

He's intriguing indeed. Shouldn't it be allowed just the Hakaishin with his angel and a Kaioshin (which, by the way, should be the Dai Kaioshin, not a random Kaioshin)?

Yeah, so far the symbols don't represent anything yet.

Toriyama's design aesthetic is fine. Merged Zamasu is just as good of a design as anything he's ever come up with in the Z era. Dragonball is just more of a laid back series overall so he doesn't draw anything nearly as detailed like he does for Dragon Quest.

I could see the hooded figure being a character like Hit. An anti-hero who's not a villain yet will have a dark history that can paint him as one. Don't see this saga having a villain just yet.

Do you think his parents died when he was young?

Yes, and he was afraid of bats but ultimately overcame his fears to become... the Batman! :P

This is a really interesting observation! Mind elaborating?
Well it seemed fitting since they are of a higher relem and if you look at the two omini kings they have two separate symbols to tell them apart. So once the trailer came out and they showed the rest of the gods I figured maybe the outfits might mean something like the order of their universe.
