A year has past since the encounter with Beerus. Goku and Vegeta had been training under Whis who had taken them as his students to master on controlling their flow of energy, maintaining it from within themselves. During this time, the remaining remnant of Frieza's army had went to earth to use the dragon balls to revive the long dead galactic ruler. Being revived and regenerated from the army's latest technology of regeneration, Frieza had began to plot his revenge on Goku who had defeated him on planet Namek. Learning that he had defeated Majin Buu, one of two beings warned not to fight with from his father; the other being Beerus, Frieza decided to begin intense training to reach new heights of power to face Goku. Frieza's army had arrived on Earth while Goku and Vegeta still training with Whis. Tien, Piccolo, Gohan, Krillin, and Master Roshi had fought the remnant until their return. Once arriving on Earth, Frieza and Goku had fought showing their latest forms and power. Goku achieved a form beyond the Super Saiyan God form being the Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan (shortened Super Sayian Blue). Frieza revealed his new form achieved after training stating he has not done before, calling it his Golden Frieza form.
Freiza became a handful with Goku but was bested yet again. However, with his commander Sorbet's help, defeated Goku with a severe shot when he was no longer focused. Vegeta then came in to fight Frieza being able to transform to the form as well. Vegeta outmatched Frieza, showing the flaw of his new form where his body has not been used to the energy that gets consumed. Out of desperation, Frieza had destroyed Earth, killing him and almost everyone, later with Whis reversing time, Goku was able to prevent Frieza from destroying the Earth after being too over confident against him in the first place and destroys him once more.
After Frieza's return, the God of Destruction by the name of Champa and his attendant, Vados appears who are Beerus and Whis' relatives. Also being the God of Destruction and Angel of Universe 6. Champa arrived to Beerus' home to see whose universe was superior. Eventually, it was settled in a tournament using the Super Dragon Balls, planet-sized versions of the titular artifacts, to grant a wish as the main prize for the two universes to swap their Earths. The universes' fighters were selected by the Gods of Destruction. During the tournament, many surprises and turn of events occurred. Each universe having formidable warriors in their respected universes. Following the elimination of Frost, Vegeta singlehandedly eliminated most of Universe 6's fighters until being defeated by the assassin Hit. The tournament reached its peak with the match up of Goku vs Hit. Each fighter raising hew heights in power with Hit being the winner by forfeit following Goku's failed attempt to lift the tournament rules to fight Hit at his full power.
