Zamasu (ザマス) is a Shinling that trained as a Kaiōshin apprentice under Gowasu. He is the future counterpart of Zamasu.

Background

Two Zamasu team up

Two Zamasu team up.

Much like his two other counterparts, under Gowasu's training, Zamasu had likewise developed feelings of disgust towards mortals. He met with his alternate self, Gokū Black, when the latter came to the future and killed his master. Knowing Zamasu also wanted to do this, Black anointed him a Kaiōshin, and asked for his assistance with the Zero Mortals Plan. Zamasu accepted the partnership, and the two teamed up in the name of their justice. The two later collected the Super Dragon Balls to wish the future Zamasu immortal and used the Time Ring to jump forward one year in the future and had the balls destroyed themselves so that they could never be restored. Prior to arriving on Earth, the two had killed countless mortals as well as gods, and made Earth, and the Earthlings, their latest target.[1]

Personality

Appearance

Equipment

  • Potara (ポタラ): A mystical earring belonging to the Kaiōshin. Zamasu wears a single earring. When worn on the same ear by two individuals, the Potara enables fusion. Furthermore, wearing the Potara brands one a Kaiōshin, and Zamasu was given one by Gokū Black for this reason.
  • Time Ring (ときゆび, Toki no Yubiwa): A magical ring, belonging to the Kaiōshin, that allows Zamasu to travel through time.[3] He used the Time Ring to investigate the other parallel worlds and assess their power — a scouting mission for the Zero Mortals Plan.[4]

Abilities

Like his present counterpart, Zamasu is a fighting prodigy. Between the time gap of the present and the future, his battle power and fighting abilities increased significantly. He could fight on par with Super Saiyan Trunks and Super Saiyan Blue Son Gokū in a certain time, though this can be attributed more to his immortality. He eventually hold both of them in place long enough for Black to attack them, albeilt the two being exhausted after a quite long battle.[5] Gokū states that Super Saiyan God is enough to handle Zamasu, and that when Zamasu is alone, even Trunks is stronger than he is.[6] Due to training under Gowasu, the Kaiōshin of the Tenth Universe, Zamasu developed the ability to heal wounds.[7]

Immortality

Zamasu's immortal body.

According to Zamasu, at some point in the future, he used the Super Dragon Balls to wish for a immortal body,[8] which allows him to be unaffected by ki attacks, as he remained unharmed after taking the full brunt of Trunks' Final Flash and Black's Kamehameha. Thanks to his immortality, after being stabbed by Trunks' sword, Zamasu also gains the ability to heal any wound within seconds.[5]

Black and Zamasu

Zamasu uniting with Black.

Right before Black could finish off Gokū, a strange voice from above told him to stop—Zamasu descended from the sky, warning Black he's the one who would kill Son Gokū, which Black promised to, much to everyone's shock.[9] Gokū asked Zamasu if he was Black's comrade, which Zamasu simply referred the two to as a pair of kindred spirits.[5]

Showing his desire about a ideal world without mortals around, Zamasu insisted Gokū was his prey and started attacking. Initial fighting on par with Gokū, Zamasu showed no hestitation in tag-teaming with Black to overwhelm the Saiyans, which he called the biggest failures race in the world. Right before they could accomplish, Trunks, however, suddenly appeared to block Black's deadly move.[5]

Zamasu vs Trunks

Zamasu began fighting the half-Saiyan, who managed to stab him with his sword, but the wound quickly healed, much to the Saiyan's shock. Trunks then managed to blast him by the Final Flash, but it showed no effect. Zamasu revealed he possessed the immortal body and thanked the Saiyans for using their strength to help him even further show off his immortality.[5]

Zamasu grabbed Gokū and Trunks, holding them in place while Black fired a Kamehameha at them. All three were hit, but Zamasu remained unharmed when the bad injured Gokū and Trunks collapsed to the ground. Zamasu and Black then charged up a joint attack to finish the two off, but at the last moment their attack was disrupted by a intercepting blast of Vegeta, who fell unconscious one more.[5]

Zamasu promises to destroy his opponents in the utopia.

With Gokū and Vegeta now vanished, Zamasu decided to dispatch the Saiyan prince first. However, Mai's soldiers released a tear gas grenade, blinding Black and Zamasu and taking Vegeta away. Zamasu and Black attempted to locate where they were by ther managed to escape as the Time Machine had successfully left for the past, leaving Black angry while Zamasu showed unconcerned though—he'll personally destroy them in his utopia.[5]

Trivia

  • Zamasu's name likely comes from zamasu (ざます), which means "to be", shares with Gowasu the same name pun scheme.
  • In Dragon Ball Fusions, Zamasu is stated to have a "pure heart", as it is one of the character perks he possesses. This is reinfornced in the series itself, with Zamasu himself truly believing his actions to be just and righteous (therefore lacking traditional evil intent), and Gowasu himself noting the flavor of Zamasu's tea stems from his pure heart.

Quotes

  • (about his partnership with Gokū Black) "We are not allies. I suppose you could call us kindred spirits."[5]
