"A Peacetime Reward Who Gets the 100,000,000 Zeni?!" (平和の報酬１億ゼニーは誰の手に！？ Heiwa no Hōshū Ichioku Zenī wa Dare no Te ni!?, lit. "Who Will the 100 Million Zenī Peace Reward Go To…?!") is the first episode of Dragon Ball Super. This episode first aired in Japan on July 5, 2015. Its original American airdate was January 7, 2017. It was the first episode of the new series to feature its original plotline in eighteen years.
Six months after the defeat of Kid Buu, peace has returned to Earth once more, and Majin Buu has been wished to be erased from the Earthlings' minds. Sometime has passed since then and Chi-Chi makes Goku get a job since the Ox-King has been running low on money to support them, so he starts working as a radish farmer, although he really wants to train. On a far away planet, Beerus is having a ravish dinner hosted by the planet's residents. He likes a drink made by them, but finds the food too greasy, so he blows up only half the planet.
Back on Earth, Mr. Satan is in a press meeting at Satan House where he declares to be the strongest in the universe and offers the Earth his protection. Majin Buu interrupts the meeting because he is hungry and Mr. Satan explains to the public (whose memories have been wiped of Buu's existence) that Buu is a space soldier who came to Earth to become his disciple.
Meanwhile, Gohan is married to Videl, and Goten wants to give Videl a wedding present. He asks Trunks for advice and they go off searching for a present. They eventually decide to get her a bottle of fresh spring water that they got right near a hot spring that can be used to make her skin soft. While scooping the water they were attacked by a giant snake and fought it while trying to keep the bottle of spring water safe.
Goten and Trunks arrive at Gohan and Videl's new house to bring Videl her wedding present which she rubs on her face and thanks them for it. Later on as the sun is setting, Goten comes back to the farm where Goku is working. Feeling guilty for taking credibility for defeating Buu, Mr. Satan arrives in a limo driven by Miss Piiza to bring a large amount of money worth 100 million zeni to help Goku's family. Goku politely declines but eventually relents, realizing it is an opportunity to take time off from his job and go off training. Right after Goku leaves, Master Roshi busts into their house telling Goku that he heard about the money and that he knows of a bunch of interesting DVDs that he can buy with it but Chi-Chi kicks him out saying that their money isn't going to be used to buy his perverted things. The episode ends on the Sacred World of the Kai with Kibito Kai and the Old Kai sensing that another planet was lost.

Differences from the manga
- Goku's image training of him fighting Frieza, Cell, and Kid Buu isn't shown in the anime.
- Beerus destroys half of a planet because their food was too greasy. In the manga, he destroys the entire planet because they put poison into his food, which did not affect him.
- In addition to this, the aliens in the anime who served Beerus food resembled hogs. In the manga, they resembled centipedes.
- Miss Piiza is Mr. Satan's limo driver in the anime but in the manga it is an unknown character.
French dub edits
- The fight between Super Saiyan 3 Goku and Kid Buu in the recap scene were replaced by the slower version of the next scene in the Toonami France airings. Also, Vegeta's fight with Kid Buu were also replaced with scenes of Goku pushing the Spirit Bomb into Kid Buu.
- Eight seconds of Master Roshi saying that he knows of a bunch of interesting DVDs that he can buy with the money before Chi-Chi kicks him out of the house were cut in the Toonami France airings.
- The scene that shows Trunks hitting a snake multiple times was cut so he only punches the snake once. This also occurred in UK POP! airings version.
- Vegeta fighting Kid Buu in the recap scene was cut out in the UK POP! airings.
- People giving energy to Goku for the Spirit Bomb was slowed down in the UK POP! airings.
- Like the edited FUNimation dub of Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball GT, Mr. Satan was renamed "Hercule" in the UK POP! airings version. This was a ongoing change since this episode.
- The episode begins with footage from the Kid Buu Saga and even plays the slow orchestrated version of Cha-La Head-Cha-La that played during the episode recaps in Dragon Ball Z. However, the footage was actually recycled from Dragon Ball Z Kai.
- The Giant Snake that Goten and Trunks fight resembles the snake that appears in the Dragon Ball Z episode He's Always Late, which is the last Dragon Ball Z episode that happens before Dragon Ball Super.
