Warning: this note includes spoilers for chapter 69 of the Dragon Ball Super manga by Akira Toriyama, Toyotaro and publisher Shueisha, now available on MangaPlus.
The new chapter of the Dragon Ball Super manga did not have much action in the form of fights, but it was loaded with new data that increases the lore of the franchise created by Akira Toriyama.
We learned more about Granola, more about the Cereal planet; even more about the Namek race; and the first glimpse of the gods of destruction technique that is equivalent to Ultra Instinct was also given.
But what is most talked about in this new episode is about the new set of Dragon Balls that appeared, because they are very different from the other three that we had seen before, within the franchise’s timeline: those of Earth. , Namek, and Super Dragon Balls — yes, we had to skip Dragon Ball GT again.
Dragon Balls of the Cereal Planet
The Dragon Balls of the Cereal Planet are this new set of spheres and have the same principle as their counterparts: when they meet, the dragon is summoned and it fulfills the wish of the one who called it, if it is within the limits of its power. .
The great difference between these artifacts and the previously known ones is that this time only two spheres are needed to call the dragon and not all seven, as it commonly happened. They are also distinguished by being very small. It is still not entirely clear whether in all there are seven spheres or just two; Although this last option is not entirely far-fetched, since the views in the manga are those of one and two stars.
These spheres were created by Monite, the Namek who lives with Granola on the cereal planet and who became her adoptive grandfather. He, like Dendé on Earth or Kami-Sama on the same planet, hundreds of years before, created the artifacts with the aim of rewarding the heroes allowing them to make the wish they wanted as a reward for their exploits.
According to a translation made by @KenXyro, the name of the dragon invoked through them would be Trombo, which would come from “trombone”. It is curious that this is a reference to a musical instrument, since Piccolo Daimaio’s children had similar names: Tambourine, Drum, Cymbal and Piano.
Normally, to be fulfilled, wishes must be something that does not require more power than each dragon possesses. This is why Shenlong cannot tell the Z Warriors where the last Super Dragon Ball from Universe 6 is located.
And we mention this because at the end of chapter 69 of the Granola manga he asks Trombo to make him the most powerful warrior in the universe. If we talk only about mortals, this would be to put him above Goký, Vegeta and even Freeza; not counting deities like Whis or Bills; and it is unlikely that this dragon can fulfill that wish.
Without a doubt, Granola will not stay with this no and at least, he will ask the dragon for an answer, which could guide him towards the Super Dragon Balls of universes 6 and 7? This would be very interesting to see.
