Here's a full episode summary because it's vital to the thread at this point and not at all because Terez needs something to link to on r/dbz:
Super Dragon Ball Heroes Episode 9: "Goku Revived!! Strongest vs. Strongest Collide!”

Trunks and Vegeta find themselves in Universe 11, floating above a devastated metropolis. Trunks notes that it looks like Hearts’ gang has already done considerable damage. Vegeta gazes at the crystalline structure of the Universe Seed hovering above them and responds that it would appear so.

The Universe Seed begins to glow, and Vegeta is transformed into a white-skinned, blue-armored version of himself, the result of a successful possession by Oren. With his new power, Oren-Vegeta blows Trunks away.

Jiren, meanwhile, begins his battle with Cumber, who turns Super Saiyan 3.

After a skirmish, Hearts calls in Oren-Vegeta to test his might against Jiren, sending Cumber along to Universe 3. Oren goes at Jiren, and Kamin asks to be let in on the fun too. Before she can join the fight, however, Zamasu lands in front of the two Tsufruian creations and begins to attack Jiren himself.

After a series of close dodges on both sides, Trunks attempts to attack Zamasu, but is blasted away by Oren, who moves in for the kill.

Before Oren can finish off Trunks, a beam of light appears in the middle of the battlefield, revealing both Goku and the Great Priest.

Goku rushes Oren, and the Great Priest declares the rest is up to him. What’s more, Goku appears to be utilizing Ultra Instinct (Omen). Zamasu is shocked to see Goku in such a form, and Hearts recognizes it as something godly.

Zamasu moves in on Goku, but Jiren rushes to Goku's defense. Goku effortlessly dodges a series of blasts from Oren, and with a single punch, removes him from Vegeta’s body. With an exhausted Vegeta beside him, Goku stares down the grinning Hearts.

These links go on the Wiki. I can just link Twitter on r/dbz. In any case, thank you for your service. :clap:

I noticed another thing.

Can't Kamin and Oren use their hosts attacks? Are they only so lazy in anime or it's like this in game as well?

Baby was using Kamehameha, Galick Gun and Final Flash.
Meanwhile Oren/Kamin only use their "Breaker" attacks every episode.

I did not know that the anime had its own topic
I'm going to admit that it's interesting to have jiren, zamasu and kamba together although tsufuru vegeta fell unfortunately unfortunately at least goku ui looked good.

The worst part about this story in general is a fact that they're using a counterpart of GT villain but Xeno Goku/Vegeta are nowhere to found.
CC Goku/Vegeta do not know anything about Kamin/Oren, but Goku Xeno would obviously recognize them and could fight Oren Vegeta as a nice reference. Seeing CC Goku/Vegeta fighting Tuffles isn't really that exciting, because instead of nice fanservice reference we simply get a ripoff of Baby saga.

I have two problems with this episode

1. Super Oren shouldn't have white skin. All of Baby Vegeta forms had human skin color and possesed Caulifla/Kale also had normal skin. Why change it here?

2. Super Oren shouldn't be anywhere near Jiren's power. Oren and Kamin are weaker than full power Baby and even in Caulifla and Kale bodies they weren't that strong, so they do not provide as huge boost as Baby does. While Vegeta is stronger than girls + he has Strongest Form 1 here, he should still be too weak to compete against Jiren. Oren Vegeta in this form should be weaker than regular SSJB Vegeta or equal at best as well. But well, it's DBH so it's probably dumb to look for any logic.

Other than that it was pretty good episode.

I'm pretty sure the 'Break' attacks are just easier to animate.

What do you think the chances are that Moro could appear in an upcoming episode?

It would be impressive to see Heroes ruin a powerful character before they even got a chance to do or be very much in the story itself, but I really doubt that's likely to happen. Manga-only stuff is the least-pervasive and officially-recognized by promotional material like Heroes, and Moro doesn't have much marketability to him yet, even if he ends up being a part of Toriyama's drafts anyway. Not that it'd be a big loss with what we've seen in the manga so far.

Ah, I forgot to add my review about the episode.

First things first, I enjoyed the fast-paced fights a lot. It doesn't take away from you the feeling of the action, but it also gives enough time for each fight, so the characters can at least interact with each other.

Lore-wise, we didn't really get anything new regarding Hearts' plan, his alliance with Zamasu or what was Goku's training. Nonetheless, I must admit that the overall showdown was pretty entertaining.

Now for the things I loved. Zamasu's reaction towards Goku arriving with the Grand Priest and Goku's UI ability was one of a kind! That punch that he got from Jiren was even more satisfying! Cumber's new SSJ3 form appeared out of nowhere, but it has a cool design. Makes me think if SSJ2 Berserk (the one that Goku used in the first episode) is connected.

For the things that I would like to see now. It would have been too much, or we could get two different episodes. In the first one I would like to see Kefla vs Zamasu and perhaps Oren Vegeta's creation. Also for a preview some of the fight between Toppo and Cumber. Inn the next episode, Zamasu would defeat Kefla and proceed to battle Jiren (post-Cumber fight) who would do what he did in Episode 9. Also, instead of Goku going for the kill with Oren Vegeta, I would prefer it if Trunks unlocked his SSJ2 Rage to release his father from Oren and then Goku would take on the siblings similarly to how he did it in the Anime.

Last but not least, I really want Trunks to kill Zamasu once and for all, giving a proper ending in their clash, because...finale of Future Trunks saga (which wasn't necessarily bad).

When's the next manga chapter out? Does it have it's own thread? The last one ended with Goku left alone on the planet?
Yamcha almost certainly did not cheat on Bulma:
He was afraid of Women, Bulma was the flirty one.
Yamcha wanted to get married (it was his gonna be his wish)
He suggested they settle down in the Trunks saga.
Alternate future Trunks is not a reliable source.
Toriyama wanted new SSJ Kids and not make new characters.

Wait. Is this series based off it's manga, or is it the other way around?

I think they're both based off the game.

It's a fact that they're both based after the game. The manga and anime are promotional material for the arcade game. All three sources have different adaptations of the same general story outline like with the DBS manga and anime (e.g. different character strengths, different telling of events, different character inclusions).

However, the main canon story is the arcade game, since all SDBH merchandise and media is both based after and used to promote the arcade game.

I really enjoyed Jiren getting the better of Cumber and Zamasu!

This show is getting very interesting. I can't wait to get some backstory on Zamasu. How he survived, where he got those upgrades, why he joined Hearts...
Now for the things I loved. Zamasu's reaction towards Goku arriving with the Grand Priest and Goku's UI ability was one of a kind!
It was cool watching him react to Ultra Instinct. Fused Zamasu probably already knew about Ultra Instinct since he was a Kai fighting genius, who knows if he ever tried to achieve it.

Fused Zamasu with Ultra Instinct, now that would be an unstoppable enemy.
That punch that he got from Jiren was even more satisfying!
No it wasn't. Mere mortals shouldn't even dare lay their filthy hands upon a God.
At long last, on this most glorious day, Project Zero Mortals will culminate with the eradication of all remaining life on this planet! And then the great utopia will rise from the ashes!

I hate to be a party pooper but I doubt we may get some insight, at least in the anime.

Probably not in the anime since every episode is quite short and the main villain of the arc seems to be Hearts instead of Zamasu, but hopefully in the manga or the game they will explain what's the deal with the new Mecha Fused Zamasu.
