"Justice and evil. I have moved beyond that binary now. There is only being and the absence of being."
In the anime, the state is attained by one who has received training to become a God of Destruction and has gained the ability to use the powers of one. However, the state can only be utilized when the user makes the conscious decision to give up their beliefs and become a God of Destruction.
In this state, Top's body gains a large increase in muscle mass and definition. The user's skin tone becomes much darker and his/her sclera turn light purple. The user also gains a red symbol identical to the cuirass of a God of Destruction of a particular universe on his/her chest extending to the midsection.
All Gods of Destruction possess this state in full. The Universe 11 God of Destruction candidate Toppo is able to access it by giving up his belief in justice, which he does during the last minutes of the Tournament of Power in an attempt to defeat Team Universe 7.
The user's aura is purple in color and completely made of Energy of Destruction, potentially causing things it touches to be destroyed.
When the user is fully charged up in this state, the markings on their body turn a glowing purple color.
Usage and Power
When this transformation is in use, the God of Destruction or God of Destruction candidate in question is able to utilize their power to the fullest extent. In this state the user is exponentially more powerful than before and gains the Power of Destruction, allowing them to use Energy of Destruction for offensive and defensive purposes.
In the anime version of the Universe Survival Saga, deciding that justice was worthless, 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 World of Void 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 powered up due to his determination to save his family and Cabba, 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 does not exist in the Dragon Ball Super manga, 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.
