Go for the Gold

The Galactic tyrant who destroyed the Saiyan home planet was born with an immense power even for his race. He ruled the stars with an iron fist before being brought down by Goku, and later Trunks. Not even death could stop him however, as he returned and with just 4 months of training, he was able to walk on even footing with Goku who had already ascended past Super Saiyan God. It was this showing that would inspire Goku to bring him back again for the Tournament of Power, where he proved to be an invaluable asset.

The Supreme Kai candidate Zamasu had a lot going for him, except one thing held him back, his pure unrelenting hatred for mortals. Zamasu would go on to take over the body of Goku becoming Goku Black. He would fuse together with his counterpart from another timeline becoming Fused Zamasu. With such power at his disposal, Zamasu was truly unstoppable and took every bit of Goku, Vegeta, and Trunks’s effort to bring him down. Even that wasn’t enough, as Zamasu endures. Only the mighty Grand Zeno stepping in could end his reign for good, leaving the once unsurpassable wall gone without a trace.

The newest additions to the Universe 6 team, Kale and Caulifa proved to be their most valuable members.

This culminated in the Tournament of Power, where he attained the legendary Ultra Instinct form, something even the Gods of Destruction have trouble with.
