DBZ had its characters travel from Earth to space, and even to the afterlife, yet DBS has so much more. With the inclusion of a multiverse, defending Earth seems small compared to fighting enemies from beyond your own universe. It also allows Akira Toriyama to create some new Saiyans, doppelgängers from parallel universes, and other possible stories that didn't previously exist in DBZ.

While Dragon Ball Z featured former foes such as Vegeta and Piccolo teaming up with Goku and his friends to defend Earth, this "team of rivals" concept is much bigger in Super. From the fandom's collected knowledge of conflicts in the DBZ series, it is hard to fathom seeing the Z Fighters team up with the Androids to defend the universe. Imagine how crazy it is to see Frieza join the team! This strange bedfellows scenario in Super dwarfs any of the unlikely alliances built in DBZ

Many of the main plots of DBZ involved defending Earth or Namek from a worldwide threat. In Super, Goku and the gang now have to defend their home planet and the entire galaxy. Between this and battles against gods, the stakes are higher for humans and Saiyans alike.

Look upon this immensely colorful and powerful form. Get ready for hyper-speed violence because that's what this form will bring. It's arguably Goku's most powerful form - more potent than the power he displayed on DBZ. It even took down the formidable Hit as everyone else looked at Goku in awe.
