Within the huge universe of Dragon Ball, many attempt to be the strongest fighter on the planet. Nonetheless, that is typically a brief state, and the tactic you utilize to develop into the strongest will typically determine simply how lengthy your place on the prime of the meals chain lasts. And, whereas the most recent strongest being within the universe is extraordinarily harmful, they could discover their reign rapidly reduce brief. Nonetheless, in contrast to most Dragon Ball villains, it’s the actions of their allies that can determine their destiny.
Chapter 78 of Dragon Ball Tremendous is a rollercoaster. After studying about his previous from Monaito, Granolah is livid. However issues take a flip for the more severe when the sky out of the blue darkens as Elec Heeter, who has lastly obtained all of the Cerealian Dragon Balls, summons the dragon to make his want. What he wished for is rapidly revealed when his siblings when Macki and Oil seem and announce that they’ve the brand new strongest being within the universe with them: Fuel. Fuel rapidly exhibits that his new title is not any joke by completely losing the heroes — however he’d higher get his punches in whereas he can, as a result of there are simply sufficient variables in play for Fuel’ new standing to be precarious at finest.
Throughout the combat, Granolah admits that he used Planet Cereal’s Dragon Balls to develop into the mightiest being within the universe. Nonetheless, clearly, this want was made moot when Elec wished for Fuel to develop into the brand new strongest. Nonetheless, the distinctive properties of Planet Cereal’s Dragon Balls will closely have an effect on how lengthy Fuel stays the strongest. Not like the Dragon Balls Goku and buddies are aware of, Planet Cereal set is a pair a lot smaller than earlier Dragon Balls and, as soon as used, they don’t flip to stone, permitting somebody to make needs in fast succession if they will discover them. Additionally, as proven by Elec’s want to make Fuel stronger than Granolah, it’s doable to make use of these Dragon Balls to override another person’s want.
This makes Elec’s wording particularly essential.

The want solely makes them the strongest being at that second, ignoring future will increase in energy. However after all, this might additionally open the door to the Heeter’s regaining the Dragon Balls and wishing for an additional in their household to develop into the strongest within the universe. This, after all, would inevitably end in a endless arms race, with every individual attempting to one-up one another in a battle of energy creep the likes of which Universe 7 has by no means seen.
Nonetheless, if Elec was intelligent, he may have worded the want to future-proof it in opposition to such a scenario. He may, as an illustration, have made a want that ensures Fuel is all the time stronger than a particular individual, like Goku or Vegeta, that means that even when they use a want, Fuel stays the strongest. He may even have wished for Fuel to all the time be the strongest individual or just the strongest individual on the planet it doesn’t matter what occurs sooner or later.
It ought to be remembered that Granolah’s want had a caveat. When he made it again in Chapter 70, the Cerealian balls’ dragon, Toronbo, knowledgeable him that his powers had a restrict — he can solely make somebody as sturdy as their latent potential. Toronbo stated that he may grant Granolah’s want by giving him all of his future potential energy now, however it required Granolah sacrificing the remainder of his lifespan, decreasing it to a mere three years. This, after all, raises questions on Fuel and what he may need had to surrender to outclass Granolah.
Solely time will inform how lengthy Fuel stays the strongest being within the universe. Nonetheless, Elec’s wording of this want will probably be essential to future chapters as, with out understanding what the want was, Goku and Vegeta won’t be able to take down this highly effective new foe. However who is aware of what the long run holds and what different needs these new Dragon Balls may grant.
