The villains in "Dragon Ball Super" include Beerus, Frieza, Hit and Zamasu. The story is set after the Super Saiyans defeated Majin Boo. The inhabitants of the earth are living in peace when suddenly Beerus came to bring destruction.

The God of Destruction for Universe 7 has seen Son Goku in the prophecy as the Super Saiyan God so he wants to challenge him. He wants to know how powerful Goku is. Beerus ended up defeating the Saiyan in "Dragon Ball Super" but he spared the earth because he was satisfied with their battle.

After Beerus, the resurrection of Frieza will follow in "Dragon Ball Super." Using the dragon balls, he returns to make Goku pay for making him suffer in hell. But just like the old times, he is once again defeated by the great warrior.

Gamenguide earlier reported that the strongest opponents of Goku in "Dragon Ball Super" are Zamasu and Black Goku who are actually just the same person. Goku and Vegeta will have no choice but to do a fusion technique to combine their powers together and defeat their immortal enemy.
