In "Dragon Ball Super", Majin Buu was already overpowered and Goku lived a normal life since Earth is already at peace. However, they all seem to be restless. Far off the universe, the supreme God of Destruction, Beerus, roused to a prophecy declaring his death at the hands of a more dreadful presence. His pursuit of the Saiyan God led him to Earth, with Goku and friends facing another enemy ordeal.
