"So, see I was thinking, see, maybe next time I'll try gathering fighters from all the universes, see...We'll do a tournament then, see. Sometime soon, see."
Zen-Oh (全王 Zen’ō, literal meaning "King of All") is the king of the 12 universes, an entity that is above all living beings of all the universes.
Zen-Oh has a very small, childlike humanoid figure. He has a rather blank expression on his face and has purple and blue stripes on his face as well. he also has no visible nose. He wears a pink vest on his body and on the front has two "all" kanjis (全) present. His head has a rather lemon like shape, with his two ears being pointed and grey.
Zen-Oh can come off as childlike at times. He is shown to have a sense of humor, although he does take his responsibilities seriously, ensuring fairness and balance in all 12 universes. He can be easily swayed by a good fight, as shown from his interest in setting up a tournament after witnessing Goku's fight against Hit. He also took a liking towards Goku, letting the Saiyan talk directly to him and shake his hand to the point of lifting him, even saying he found Goku interesting. His interest in Goku led him to ask the Saiyan to become his friend and allow him to gave the nickname "Zen-chan" to him. However, he doesn't appreciate or want anybody to speak in place of Goku simply to please Zen-Oh. It is possible that Zen-Oh is lonely, as next to nobody knows of his existence, and those who do, fear his power and don't see him on a friend level. He also has an extremely high and childlike voice. Apparently, Zen-Oh is shown to be somewhat careless and irresponsible if not amoral, as he destroyed 6 universes after getting angry.
At some point in time, Zen-Oh destroyed 6 universes from the 18 universes that were present.

Zen-Oh watches the Universe 6 and Universe 7 tournament from a distance away of the Nameless Planet. After the tournament concludes, Champa is angry that his team lost and prepares to destroy them while Beerus warns Goku not to interfere as he will never defeat Champa. However, Zen-Oh and his attendants arrive on the Nameless Planet in the ring, which prevents Beerus and Champa from doing so, as he along with Beerus are completely mortified and shocked by Zen-Oh's presence. He states that his reason for visiting was out of concern that Beerus and Champa were shirking their duties as Gods of Destruction. Asking how Beerus and Champa were doing in their jobs, Whis informs him that Beerus focuses more on sleeping and consuming food, and Vados notes that Champa completely obsesses over food and all of the sweets that result in him being fat, and whatever food Vados serves Champa, he says it is awful.
Goku attempts to meet Zen-Oh, but Zen-Oh's attendants shield him from the king. Zen-Oh allows Goku to speak to him, and even shakes hands with Goku when the latter offers his hand out, though has a long pause before doing so. After shaking hands with Goku, Zen-Oh returns home via his attendants.

While Beerus and Whis are at their temple, Beerus is waiting for his food when a call comes through. Beerus answers it, telling the caller to call another time, yet is immediately shocked and terrified to see his caller is Zen-Oh, and repenting his tone, immediately bows to him, accidentally breaking his table with his head in the process, and asks him how his day has been, thanking him for taking the time out of his schedule to call him.
As he was told, Beerus orders Whis to take Goku to Zen-Oh's place together with Supreme Kai. Zen-Oh happily greets Goku and asks him to be his friend, since everyone else was too afraid of his power to effectively socialize with. When Goku seemed to hesitate, Supreme Kai desperately interrupts, saying Goku would be happy to oblige, but Zenō orders him to be silent and allows Goku to answer for himself. Agreeing to be his friend, Goku tells Zen-Oh to just call him by his name and in return, Goku will call him "Zen-chan", much to the shock of everyone. Then, Zen-Oh gave Goku a button. If Goku presses it, Zen-Oh will come right to him.
Later, while Goku is looking for Senzu beans in his pocket in an effort to recover and battle the non-corporeal Zamasu, he finds the button and presses it, calling the Zen-Oh of the future timeline to him. Although this Zen-Oh did not know Goku and seems fairly stunned that he was called, he judges the situation and agrees with Goku that Zamasu had to be erased, deeming him "annoying". Following that, he uses his powers to create a huge and bright explosion that nearly destroys Goku and his friends, who barely manage to escape in the time machine. Zamasu, Earth as well as what appears to be majority of the surroudings is completely erased as a result of this explosion, leaving behind colorful glowing particles.
Zen-Oh is the most powerful character in the entire Dragon Ball franchise. While the true capabilities of Zen-Oh are unknown, as Beerus notes he does not fight, Zen-Oh possesses immeasurable power, far beyond comprehension. Whis states that nobody in this world is greater than Zen-Oh, as the latter has the power to instantly wipe out anything in the blink of an eye; from individual people, planets, galaxies to entire universes and if he so wished he could wipe out all of existence. According to Whis, there used to be 18 universes but Zen-Oh destroyed 6 of them when he was in an unpleasant mood.
Beerus states that if Zen-Oh felt like it, he could wipe out all 12 universes in an instant. Zen-Oh is the single most important person in existence, and holds complete authority over everything in existence. For instance, at full power Beerus might wipe out one Universe, while Zen-Oh can effortlessly decimate several of them.
Goku used the button to call the future Zen-Oh to him, seeking his assistance in stopping Zamasu - who had taken a non-corporeal and highly destructive form. Without much prompting, Zen-Oh deems the non-corporeal Zamasu "annoying" and uses his power to noticeably erase Zamasu, along with Earth and most of the surroundings - leaving only bright, colorful particles that have a similar color scheme to Zeno's clothing.
