Goku Black"s appearance in Future Trunks"s timeline is complicated, to say the least. The body-swapping, time-traveling, multiverse-hopping villain has likely made more than a few viewers pause to grab a pencil & paper.

Dubbed "Goku Black" by Future Bulma because he looks like Goku, wears black and is evil, the true identity of this villain is eventually revealed to be Zamasu, the apprentice to the Supreme Kai of Universe 10.

Despite having an admittedly compelling origin story for a villain, Zamasu"s journey from a disgruntled Kai into an evil clone of Goku required a tremendous amount of hoop-jumping. In the main timeline, thanks to lớn knowledge gained from Future Trunks"s arrival, Beerus travels lớn Universe 10 & destroys Zamasu, thus sparing the series" main timeline from his plans.

Dragon Ball has always been a fan of evil Gokus, lượt thích the non-canon Turles or when Captain Ginyu also stole Goku"s body.

Zamasu"s plan probably would have worked if he didn"t have to lớn spend so much time explaining it khổng lồ everyone.
