- This article is about the anime transformation. For the manga transformation, see Power of Destruction.
"Justice and evil. I have moved beyond that binary now. There is only being and the absence of being."
The state is attained by one who has received God of Destruction training and has gained the ability to use the powers of one. However, the state can only be utilized when the user is in the right mindset to act as a Destroyer. All Gods of Destruction presumably possess this state in full with no drawbacks.
While individuals with the God of Destruction status typically exude a purple aura of Energy of Destruction and nothing more, those who do not have the status of a Destroyer but have trained in such a manner additionally experience noticeable physical changes. For Top, his body gains increased muscle mass and definition, a darker skin tone, and light purple sclera. He also gains a red marking matching the pattern of Belmod's cuirass on his chest, extending to the midsection. At full strength, Top's marking glows bright purple.
Usage and Power
When this transformation is in use, the user becomes exponentially more powerful than before and gains the Power of Destruction. In the anime it allows the user to use Energy of Destruction for offensive and defensive purposes.
In the anime version of the Universe Survival Saga, deciding to give up his principles of justice for the sake of survival, Top was able to enter Destroyer Form. When Top used this transformation in the Tournament of Power when fighting Frieza in his golden form, his power increased dramatically to the point where it surpassed Frieza's - even without Top using the form's full power. Simply one Energy of Destruction sphere was enough to greatly wound Frieza and revert him to his previous form, at the same time warping the entire Null Realm to change the sky color from green to a cosmic space theme of deep purple and blue hues. From then on, Top was able to pummel Frieza into submission. Even in this mode Top was captured by Frieza's Imprisonment Ball but was able to break free by powering up. Facing Super Saiyan God SS Evolved Vegeta, Top quickly overwhelmed his foe and almost defeated him. However, when Vegeta fully adjusted to his new form, fueled by his determination to save his family and Cabba, plus determined to prove the value of keeping to principles, Top found the situation reversed, with his Energy of Destruction being overcome by Vegeta's ki. Even with the full power of this state Top was knocked out of bounds by Vegeta's Final Explosion. This form is not in the Dragon Ball Super manga's Universe Survival Saga, with Top instead using the Aura of a God.
In the manga version of the Universal Conflict Saga, with the battle between Top and Super Saiyan 3 Cumber at a near stalemate, Top decided to take on this mode while Cumber began utilizing the full power Super Saiyan 3. The two fought equally before both being taken down by a single swipe from Ultimate Kamioren.
