Plot

Pseudo Universe's Fierce Battle

The Warrior in Black

In the anime, within the Pseudo Universe, a Warrior in Black stands a top a building in West City while Goku runs down the streets below dodging various spaceship blasts being fired in his direction. Goku is contacted telepathically by Xeno Trunks who informs him that he is currently in the universe that Fu had created, a fake copy of the original Universe 7 that has no signs of life within but soon finds out the two universe are connected. Though not fully grasping the situation, Goku nevertheless flies away from the city.

Hearts makes his return

Frieza and Meta-Cooler leave their ship and fly Goku down, kicking him to the ground. As Goku struggles to get to his feet, the two tyrants charge in for another attack only to be struck by Hearts Gravity Cage technique that pins the two to the ground. Goku is surprised to see Hearts, not knowing that he was still alive but Hearts points out his Halo above his head saying that he was instead freed from Hell by Demigra. Hearts asks Goku to join forces with him, needing his power and with the intention of taking down Fu and Goku agrees.

Golden Frieza and Meta-Cooler with Dark Dragon Balls

Frieza and Meta-Cooler re-emerge in their Golden states. Meta-Cooler points out that Hearts is an ally of Cumber who he still holds a grudge with and charges at Hearts in a rage. As Hearts and Meta-Cooler battle, Goku takes on Frieza, withstanding a powerful attack to enter into the Ultra Instinct Sign state where he quickly takes Frieza down. Suddenly, both Frieza and Meta-Cooler are given Dark Dragon Balls by an unknown assailant, the orb powers the two up dramatically as Goku and Hearts prepare for an even tougher fight.

Broly appears in the Space-Time

From above they are all watched by the Crimson-Masked Saiyan who urges them to fight for his own upcoming plans. Empowered, Frieza and Meta-Cooler prove to be to much for Goku and Hearts to handle. However Broly unexpectedly appears, also having been swallowed up in this new universe and without warning, he charges forward and strikes a mighty blow to the midsections of both Goku and Hearts to knock them aside then turns around to face Frieza and Meta-Cooler and with a single blast he takes the two galactic tyrants out.

The Warrior in the Black retrieves the Dark Dragon Ball

The mysterious Warrior in Black appears before Meta-Cooler and attacks, hurtling him into the sky before taking his Two-Star Dark Dragon Ball. Frieza goes after the warrior next though he is effortlessly overpowered and once again, the warrior takes the One-Star Dark Dragon Ball from him. The Warrior in Black turns his attention next towards Broly, gesturing him to follow after him as they take off across the sky. The Crimson-Masked Saiyan appears before Goku and Hearts and urges the two to keep fighting. Hearts asks if he is one of Fu's followers though he is cryptic with his answer and immediately takes his leave.

Hearts gives Goku a Senzu Bean

Hearts tosses Goku a Senzu Bean that he had found in his time before the confrontations and Goku recovers from his injuries. Hearts then brings out the Four-Star Dragon Ball and tells Goku that if the Senzu Bean had the same effect in this Space-Time then the same should be true for the Dragon Balls as well. The two decide to collect all seven of the Dragon Balls and use them to escape from the Space-Time. They both head to Capsule Corporation where Goku collects the Dragon Radar. Turning it on, he picks up two signals, one of which belongs to Hearts and other up above them.

Pride of the Warrior Race

Evil Saiyan Turles

Up past the clouds, Planet Vegeta looms near to Earth. A top Vegeta's Palace, a wounded Vegeta is shown engaged in a battle against Turles and Cumber. Vegeta charges at Cumber, but is easily blasted away and suffers severe damage. Cumber is suddenly ambushed by Turles, who tells Cumber that he should've remembered him. Turles goes on to claim that he is the strongest Saiyan thanks to continuously eating the Fruits of the Tree of Might and thereby gaining endless evil power from it. As Cumber and Turles fight each other, Goku and Hearts teleport there and immediately notices the unconscious Vegeta.

Suddenly, the Crimson-Masked Saiyan arrives and informs Goku that he is his opponent before transforming into a Super Saiyan Rosé. Goku realizes that this is indeed Goku Black, revived through unknown means. Black proclaims that he will defeat his original counterpart and prove himself to be superior. Goku goes Super Saiyan Blue and the two fight, with Hearts following after them transforming into Super Hearts.

Vegeta controls his new power

Vegeta manages to recover, wondering how and why Goku Black is alive and in the Pseudo Universe, but is then punched into a wall by Turles before being ambushed himself by Cumber. As Turles continues his fight with Cumber, Vegeta gets back up. Turles attempts to corrupt Vegeta using his Evil Aura. As this happens, Vegeta remembers several of his past deeds. He reasons if the nature of Saiyans is truly evil or not, and then remembers his death at the hands of Frieza and Goku's battle with Kid Buu. Finally, Vegeta proclaims that it is wrong and manages to overcome the corruption, making that power his own.

Cumber without his mask

Cumber and Turles are both shocked at this, and Vegeta suddenly attacks Turles. He easily defeats Turles and then Cumber using a Galick Gun strong enough to shatter Cumber's mouth mask, who only states that it's admirable for Vegeta to make his power his own before collapsing unconscious to the ground. Vegeta turns to a terrified Turles, telling him to train and come back if he has any Saiyan pride left in him. Turles replies that if it means that he will become a low-class Saiyan again, then he is fine with that.

Turning his attention to a nearby energy signature, Vegeta is shocked to see that Goku Black has just defeated Goku and Hearts, holding the former by the neck.

Game Version

Pseudo Universe's Fierce Battle

Having woken up in the Pseudo Universe, Goku looks around West City and is contacted by Xeno Trunks. Goku asks whether he is inside the universe Fu created and Trunks confirms it to be the case, though he clarifies that it is only an empty space-time that became connected to the original universe. He explains that the new universe is forcing the original universe to copy what it does, though Goku fails to understand. He notices Frieza's Spaceship and Cooler's Spaceship in the distance and goes to investigate.

Trunks starts warning him not to destroy the buildings around him, but is interrupted by the Crimson-Masked Saiyan. Goku asks about his Mask, and Trunks tells him to get away from the masked man. The Crimson-Masked Saiyan offers to explain the universe's rules, and proceeds to destroy the buildings around them. Trunks exclaims that the corresponding buildings in the original West City just collapsed, confirming that the two universes are connected. Goku fights the Crimson-Masked Saiyan, and asks if he is working with Fu. The Crimson-Masked Saiyan says that Fu used him as a tool, but that he will now use the new universe to grant his wish, starting by exterminating everyone in the region. Goku struggles to continue fighting, having reached his limit from all the preceding battles.

The Crimson-Masked Saiyan declares that he will get the Time Patrol out of the way, and Trunks's voice starts breaking up before cutting out entirely. Frieza and Meta-Cooler both arrive and engage Goku together, who struggles to defend himself. He is saved by the arrival of Hearts, who explains to Goku that a Demon freed him from Hell. Recognizing him as Cumber's ally, Meta-Cooler transforms into his Golden form and attacks him. Frieza meanwhile transforms into his own Golden form and attacks Goku, who transforms into Ultra Instinct Sign. Goku is able to overpower Frieza, and he suggests working together to escape from the new universe. Seeing that Frieza is considering the offer, the Crimson-Masked Saiyan decides to force him and Meta-Cooler to continue fighting by taking out two Dark Dragon Balls, and latching them onto the brothers' chests.

As they battle, Broly charges in to attack Goku. The Warrior in Black also arrives and joins the fight, helping Goku and Hearts. He removes the Dark Dragon Balls from Frieza and Meta-Cooler, reverting them to their normal selves, and forces Broly to retreat. Hearts criticises the Crimson-Masked Saiyan for sightseeing from above, and the masked man agrees to come down and fight them himself. Both the Crimson-Masked Saiyan and the Warrior in Black end up disappearing, and Hearts comments that he couldn't read either of their hearts. Hearts gives Goku a Senzu Bean, explaining that he found it atop Korin Tower and learnt what it was when he read Goku's mind during an earlier encounter. He suggests that they use the Dragon Balls to escape, and Goku leads them to the Dragon Radar. He picks up one of the Dragon Balls, and they move out.

Pride of the Warrior Race

On the pseudo Planet Vegeta, Vegeta engages in battle against Cumber and Turles. The pair claim that evil is a Saiyan's true worth, and that Vegeta has no value for lacking it. Turles eats a Fruit of the Tree of Might, using it to envelop his heart with evil rather than merely amplifying his power, transforming him into an Evil Saiyan. Cumber compliments Turles and asks for a battle, and Turles heartily agrees.

Goku and Hearts teleport onto the planet, but are prevented from helping Vegeta by the Crimson-Masked Saiyan who teases them with a Dragon Ball if they don't interfere. Goku and Super Hearts battle the Red-Masked Saiyan, while Vegeta proclaims that he doesn't need their help. The Red-Masked Saiyan transforms into Super Saiyan Rosé, proclaiming that by defeating Goku he will complete his body. Immediately realising the Red-Masked Saiyan's true identity as Goku Black, Goku transforms into Super Saiyan Blue. Vegeta also recognizes Black, but is ambushed by Turles who decides to share his Evil Aura with him. Vegeta is enveloped in the evil Ki, remembering his past actions, but he reaffirms his belief in battling being a Saiyan's true goal and manages to control the Ki. Having made the power his own, Vegeta accuses Turles of losing his pride from his dependence on the Fruit of the Tree of Might and fights him and Cumber, ultimately ending up victorious. Cumber congratulates Vegeta before passing out, while Turles reverts to his base form and asks why he can't win. Vegeta tells him to find his way if he has a shred of Saiyan pride left, and Turles replies that he's fine with becoming a lower-class warrior again.

Black tells Goku that he has travelled across countless spacetimes defeating Gokus, and that this Goku is the hundredth he's faced. He decides to destroy the planet if they are unable to defeat him. Goku transforms into Ultra Instinct -Sign-, which Black derides as an insignificant power-up. Musing that he can still ascend further, Black attacks Goku, telling him to prove that he can survive.

Vegeta tells Goku to hurry up and get them out of there before the planet is destroyed, but Goku laments that he could only get to Planet Vegeta by sensing Vegeta, and with nobody else detectable he has nowhere to escape to. Hearts tries to wake up Cumber, who remains unconscious. Suddenly a revived Cell appears, causing Black to complain about the Demon Gods interfering. He prepares to stop Cell from rescuing them, when Turles attacks him. Black easily kills him, but the distraction allows Cell to escape with the others. Black disappears, and Planet Vegeta is engulfed in a massive explosion.
