So fans were slightly relieved to learn that Goku had body swapped by Zamasu, and it wasn’t actually Son Goku that committed these atrocities. But at the same time, fans were still puzzled at just how did Zamasu get Goku’s Body?
Zamasu got Goku’s Body by using the Super Dragon Balls to summon Super Shenron and then wish to swap bodies with Son Goku. Zamasu travelled into the future using his time ring to target a future version of Goku, not the Goku from the present timeline.Click here to take our Dragon Ball Z quiz!!!
What are the Super Dragon Balls
The Super Dragon Balls are the original and most powerful version of Dragon Balls. They are the Dragon Balls that all other Dragon Balls are based on.
They are absolutely massive, being the size of planets, and are used to summon a solar system sized beast known as Super Shenron.
As you can imagine, they can grant even more powerful wishes than the regular Dragon Balls and can do an extraordinary amount of evil were they to fall in the wrong hands…
How did Zamasu get the Super Dragon Balls?
Being a Kai has several advantages that allowed Zamasu to get the Super Dragon Balls fairly easily. First of all, he had his time ring to go to a time when the Super Dragon Balls weren’t used.
He was also told the location of the Super Dragon Balls by Master Zuno and was able to teleport to them quickly using his Kai powers. So getting the Super Dragon Balls was very easy for someone as clever and resourceful as Zamadu.
What happened when Zamasu wished to swap bodies with Goku
After gathering all of the Super Dragon Balls, all Zamasu had to do was wish for his evil plan to come into fruition. After he summoned Shenron and wished to swap bodies, he found himself opposite his old body with the spirit of Goku.
He then proceeded to kill Goku, along with Goku’s family, before riding off into the sunset to kill many, many more mortals. So his old body was dead, and he was free to leave with his new, much more powerful body.
