Dragon Ball Super Kills Off a Major Villain

Dragon Ball Super Chapter 87 officially kills off Gas, the main villain of the “Granolah the Survivor Saga” arc.

In the latest entry in the manga series, Goku and Vegeta face off against Gas, who appears in an old-looking form after having seemingly been defeated last chapter. However, the two Saiyans aren’t able to beat the villain, even using True Ultra Instinct and Ultra Ego. Just when all looks lost, Frieza appears and kills both the villain and Elec, the leader of the Heeters gang, with no problem. In the end, the last two remaining Heeters, Oil and Macki, opt to join Frieza.

Who Was Dragon Ball Super’s Gas?

Prior to the start of the current arc of Dragon Ball Super, “Granolah the Survivor Saga,” Gas worked with the Heeters on behalf of Frieza, helping the villain in his conquering of the universe. However, Gas ended up fighting against Bardock, Goku’s father, and losing, which angered him greatly.

At the start of “Granolah the Survivor Saga,” the titular Cerealian used his planet’s Dragon Balls to make himself the most powerful fighter in the universe. Soon, though, the Heeters tricked Goku and Vegeta into coming to fight Granolah. While the three were preoccupied, they used Planet Cereal’s Dragon Balls to make Gas the strongest fighter in the universe, a title he lived up to by besting Goku, Vegeta and Granolah in combat. The villains did this with an eye towards overthrowing Frieza.

What Is Dragon Ball Super?

The original Dragon Ball manga debuted in 1984 in the pages of Weekly Shōnen Jump. Soon, the story was adapted to anime. Since then, the franchise has flourished, and there have been numerous video games, films, and other media based on the series. Dragon Ball Super itself started in 2015 and ran until 2018. The story itself has continued both in the manga and in the form of films, though there’s been some divergence in terms of the story being told in the two mediums.

New chapters of Dragon Ball Super release monthly in English through Viz Media. The most recent entry in the anime series is Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. That film is available in theaters in North America now after having proven successful in Japan
