Plot

The Secret of Seven-Three

Seven-Three's still-living head

With the universe now at peace following Moro's death, Jaco joins Calamis on a visit to the Galactic Prison, where they visit the surviving members of Saganbo's Galactic Bandit Brigade. Calamis asks Yunba if he knows anything about a faint distress signal that came from the crater on Earth after Moro's demise, though they do not. Zauyogi speaks up, berating them for having destroyed Seven-Three, a being they had stolen that was filled with data and turned into a powerhouse. Yunba then asks if Seven-Three has truly been destroyed and, when Jaco assumes that he must have due to there no longer being a trace left of Moro, starts chuckling, calling them "fools" for not making sure. The two head to the crater on Earth, where they try to find any trace of Seven-Three, but are unable to, as two other beings had found him first and placed Seven-Three's head into a container. They soon get in their spaceship and take off.

The OG Soldiers are unleashed to deal with Granolah

A few months later, on a spaceship far away from Earth, an attendant approaches his master Goichi to relay information that the data from Seven-Three has been copied into all of their units. Seven-Three had previously been stolen from Goichi by Saganbo and the Galactic Bandit Brigade, but has now been returned to them, stronger than ever. Elated by this news, Goichi believes it is now his time to rule the universe. Just then, in another ship, Granolah, who is receiving support from a person named Oatmeel, approaches and boards Goichi's ship. Using his weaponry, he is able to dispatch the guards that were sent out to confront him as well as the OG Soldiers. After a specific unit in mind, Granolah enters another room where he finds his target: OG73-i, otherwise known as Seven-Three.

After securing him, he heads for the Heeter's Base. Along the way, Granolah has a flashback to a time when the Saiyan race invaded his planet and killed his people, also remembering a Great Ape with a cross-shaped scar. Granolah awakens inside his spaceship and speaks with Oatmeel, who asks him why he continues to obsess over the Frieza Force. Granolah explains that his obsession stems from the Saiyans who slaughtered his race, the Cerealians, and that the Saiyan race themselves were reportedly wiped out by a meteor that destroyed their home planet, robbing him of his chance to get revenge.

Training on Beerus' Planet

Goku spars with Whis

Meanwhile, on Beerus' Planet, Whis injects the Oracle Fish with some vitamins to put him to sleep due to his insomnia. Whis explains that, when the Oracle Fish is suffering from a lack of sleep, it can be a bad omen for the future. Following this, Goku and Whis continue training, with Goku taking on the Autonomous Ultra Instinct state at will, though he still proves to be no match for Whis. Whis explains that wielding Ultra Instinct is merely the starting point, as it is possible to gain a much greater level of control over it than what Goku currently has. Beerus asks if Vegeta plans to master Ultra Instinct too, but he declines. Beerus then mentions that there may be another way for him to grow stronger, as Ultra Instinct is not the only technique of the Gods as that is merely what the Angels use, and that the Gods of Destruction use something else entirely. Although Beerus refuses to tell him what the technique is, he does tell Vegeta that he is going to get some exercise and that, if he sees anything he wants, he is free to steal it.

Granolah and the Heeters

Elsewhere, Granolah makes it to the Heeter's base, running into Soshiru along the way, who suggests splitting the prize money that will be obtained for handing in Seven-Three. Instead, Granolah threatens Soshiru and makes his way inside. There he speaks with Elec, the leader of the Heeters, and hands over his bounty. After receiving payment, Elec explains that he does not intend to create an army but to simply gain intel from Seven-Three instead. He also informs him of Frieza's revival. Eager to get his chance for revenge, Granolah demands to know where he is. Finding his actions to be unacceptable, Gas restrains Granolah. Elec says that taking on Frieza will take time and planning and he must bide his time until they are ready. Granolah agrees to leave things until then and takes off. Elec speaks with his family, saying that they would be in hot water if Granolah surpassed Gas in strength and truthfully intends for Frieza to take Granolah out and plans to use Seven-Three in order to locate Zuno.

Granolah's Right Eye

Granolah's Cerelean right eye

Granolah snipes at Soshiru's men

As Granolah makes his way to his home planet, he is ambushed by Soshiru and his men. He tricks them into boarding his ship and begins sniping away at them. Oatmeel explains that Cerealian's right eyes are adapted for sharpshooting and that Granolah is a cut above the rest. After Soshiru retreats, Granolah tells Oatmeel that he missed one of his targets, admitting that he is still not powerful enough to take on Frieza but vows to get stronger than anyone. Back on Beerus' Planet, the Oracle Fish talks in his sleep, saying that the balance in Universe 7 is shifting and the strongest warrior in the universe will soon rise up.

Granolah arrives at his home planet which is now inhabited by Sugarians. The Sugarians treat Granolah as one of them, but Granolah refuses to live in their city because he feels the planet now belongs to them. He now lives in the mountains, with a view of the Cerelean's former city, now destroyed.

Vegeta battles Beerus

Meanwhile, Beerus questions Vegeta about the Saiyan's destructive history. Vegeta doesn't understand how this relates to learning a technique used by the Gods of Destruction. Beerus shows off his powers and destroys a decorative planet, then tells Vegeta that if he doesn't let the sins of his race go, he will never be able to wield the power of destruction. Beerus reveals to Vegeta that he was the one who told Frieza to destroy Planet Vegeta, causing Vegeta to outrage and attack Beerus. Beerus dodges Vegeta's attack then hits him with a Hakai , destroying part of his armor. With Vegeta defeated by Beerus once again, the God of Destruction tells him that to grow stronger he must rebuild himself from scratch as that before creation comes destruction.

Planet Cereal

At the Heeter's base, Elec uses Seven-Three to view memories of the Galactic Bandit Brigade interrogating Zuno and learns of the existence of the Dragon Balls. Reminded of the Namekian race, Elec mentions that there is a lone Namekian named Monaito that still lives on Cereal with Granolah.

Back on Cereal, Granolah arrives at his home where he sees Monaito. During a conversation, the elderly Namekian advises Granolah not to seek revenge against Frieza as he is not strong enough. Granolah suggests using the planets own set of Dragon Balls in order to grant a wish for strength but knows that he is unable as he requires a second Dragon Ball in order to summon the Dragon. Monaito once again advises Granolah to enjoy the life they have and forget about revenge and Granolah reluctantly agrees.

The Dragon Toronbo

However as night rolls by, Granolah, learns on the news that the second Dragon Ball had been found by a local and is currently being researched at an institute. Donning a disguise, Granolah heads into the city, sneaks into the institute and steals the Dragon Ball before escaping back in to the mountains. There he summons the wish granting Dragon, Toronbo and asks him if he can be turned into the greatest warrior in the universe but soon finds out that the wish can not be made so easily. Though Toronbo is able to increase his strength, he is not able to increase his power beyond his own latent potential unless he agrees to a specific condition. Willing to do whatever it takes to achieve his goal of defeating Frieza, Granolah accepts the condition.

Vegeta uses Hakai

On Beerus' Planet, Vegeta continues to train, attempting to destroy a small rock using Hakai but instead destroys it via a simple energy blast. Having done it wrong, Beerus explains the technique and shows the correct method, creating a large blast in the process. Close by, Goku trains with Whis, commenting on which of the two will become the strongest in the universe. Whis however says that perhaps neither will become the strongest but someone else entirely though he does not know of anyone currently stronger than the Saiyan pair. The Oracle Fish awakens, proclaiming that the strongest warrior in the universe will soon rise up. Vegeta overhears this and appearing in front of Goku and Whis, displays the Hakai ability by destroying a tiny pebble saying that soon he will be destroying much larger things.

On Cereal, the Dragon departs, leaving Granolah alone, now with hair that has grown considerably down past his shoulders. After testing out his new found might, Monaito having felt the aftermath from his own home heads out to see him. Granolah explains that he has used the Dragon Balls to become the strongest warrior in the universe and is now capable of taking down Frieza. Monaito criticises his decision though it falls on deaf ears as Granolah quickly takes off to see Elec to ask him for Frieza's location.

Granolah's Power

Granolah shows off his new strength

Two days later, Granolah arrives at the Heeter's Base demanding Frieza's location. Annoyed by the interference, Elec asks Oil to see him out only for Granolah to easily overpower him. Elec then tells Oil to fight him. The fight proves to be one sided as Oil is unable to land a single blow with his comrade Macki faring no better. Satisfied at Granolah's power but curious all the same, Elec has Granolah explain where he got his strength from. Granolah tells the Heeters that he has sacrificed 150 of his remaining years in order to obtain his current power and now only has three years left to live as a result. Elec accepts the explanation though tells Granolah to head home as they do not know Frieza's exact location and finding out such a thing will take time. Granolah then takes his leave.

Later on while the Heeters have dinner, Elec discusses the current situation, believing that it is not wise for Granolah to take Frieza out as he will take his place in his stead, a position that he believes belongs to them. Not wanting Granolah to destroy the Frieza Force either due to wanting control of the force for themselves, Elec decides to pit the Saiyans Goku and Vegeta, who had they witnessed defeat Moro through Seven-Three, against Granolah believing that he would not be able to defeat the two of them by himself.

Granolah is seen aboard his spaceship while Goku and Vegeta continue their own separate training.
