The Universe Crumbles?! Clash! The God of Destruction vs Super Saiyan God!

Episode Summary:

Bulma’s ship struggles but manages to catch up with Beerus and Goku in the upper stratosphere. The energy of the two gods has a noticeable effect on the atmosphere, which causes trouble for the ship’s engine. All the way back on the cruise ship, Vegeta pays close attention by staring deep into the sky. Whis shows up and notices he might hurt his neck looking up so inverted, so he shows him the battle through his staff. Vegeta says nothing and doesn’t look over once. Goku and Beerus finally begin to start their battle once again, they both power up and charge each other with a single powerful punch. Both of their fists collide, and the power of their full-fledged attack exerts a strange shock wave that radiates all across the universe. Elder Kaioshin becomes worried, he explains that the destructive force of these shock waves become more powerful the further out they travel from the original impact point. He goes on saying the universe can only survive this collision two or three more times, after that everything in the universe will be decimated.

Kabito Kai tries to telepathically contact Goku and warn him on what he might unintentionally do, but is put off by the focus of Goku and Beerus as they power up for a second time. The two gods collide once more with their fists, and creates more universal shock waves! These waves knock people over on Earth in Satan City. Meanwhile whole planets and asteroids in space are being completely vaporized. Mr. Satan is contacted by his frightened followers who believe he might have answers on the mysterious shock waves. Mr. Satan comes up with an excuse that he is at a birthday party that has stolen goods, humorously ending the call by pretending he can’t hear anything because of the terrible connection. Mr. Satan gets furious and wants to know where Gohan could be at an omnious time like this, leaving his wife. Right after he says this Bulma’s ship comes crashing down towards him. Whis comes to the rescue and casually stops it with his staff. Whis says Beerus promised to spare the Earth if he lost, and since the fight is not over yet Whis will not let anything on Earth get destroyed to keep his promise.

Beerus and Goku display their full strength by powering up even more. They produce formidable dragons from their raw aura energy, and then absorb their respective dragon aura which causes them to surge with power. They fly towards each other for the third time. Elder Kaioshin perceives this as the end and says his humorous good byes to Kabito Kai, and gives him an explicit parting away gift to which Kabito Kai swiftly denies. Goku and Beerus’s punches collide, however no shock waves were produced this time. This surprises the Elder Kaioshin, because he claims Goku canceled out Beerus’s punch by matching it with the same exact speed and angling with his punch. Nulling out the energy imbalance. Goku says he actually wanted to try this on the second punch, but Beerus made it too difficult to even bother trying. They continue fighting and Goku cuts Beerus’s face with a mere punch, it instantly heals however. This angers Beerus and he creates another purple energy sphere and fires it at Goku who stops it with a Kamehameha. They then have a beam struggle between one another, and Beerus strengthens his ki blast attack with more power the more leverage he gains on Goku, who seems to be struggling. The universal shock waves are created once again, and everyone on Earth panics as part of the ground ripples. More planets are destroyed by the shock waves, and the Kaioshin fall to their knees believing this might be the end of the universe. Elder Kaioshin says even gods will not be spared when everything is destroyed. Goku is pushed to his limits, and it looks like Beerus will win this beam struggle. As it looks like Goku will lose, the Super Saiyan God manages to surpass his limits once again and push back Beerus’s attack.
