He wears a black and white shirt underneath, with the kanji for “all” () on the front. Like many deities, such as the angels, Zeno seems to have a general indifference about life, as well as all the other stuff within the multiverse, having destroyed six of the eighteen universes after a bout of anger, and also destroying several planets in a game he played with his future self 202 times.
He apparently wished to decrease that number further for some time, giving no excuses for such a decision beyond saying 12 universes are a bit too much to keep track of, with the Tournament of Power being the perfect opportunity to do so. Even more, this indifference seems to extend to the gods themselves, seemingly rendering him a remorseless being to his peers, and was shown to not even be affected by Roh's horrified crying out of his name.
He also shows some degree of sadism, as shortly after erasing Universe 9, he proceeded alongside his future counterpart to say “bye-bye!” In a joking tone, as well as being heard laughing childishly while erasing the universe.
He and his counterpart also said “squish” in a light-hearted, delighted tone when they were erasing Universe 3. Furthermore, he seems to be incapable of understanding the horrible action of erasing trillions of lives in a single universe, since he and his future counterpart wonder why everyone in the Tournament of Power stop fighting after witnessing the entire universe getting erased.
In spite of all this, Zeno and his future counterpart, at least in the anime, showed wisdom worthy of supreme beings, as the Great Priest revealed that both of them intended the tournament prize, the wish of the Super Dragon Balls, to be used for an incredible virtuous act (e.g. like restoring all the erased universes as it was the case). ), all existence would have been erased, including the exempt universes as that would have meant that the winning universe was no better than the erased ones and that the exempt were no more worthy of existing than the others.
At the same time, Zeno is also shown to be flexible, tolerant, and even willing to go back on his word on occasion. For example, he accepted Bergamo's proposal to rescind universal destruction were he to win against Roku, despite his earlier decision.
He condoned Top's challenge to Roku as an additional fourth match to be witnessed, despite the end of the Zeno Expo. His flexibility, combined with his childish tendencies, also prompts Zeno to permit what otherwise would be rule violations in the Tournament of Power, such as permitting the Evil Containment Wave and use of the Polar earrings.
He immediately erased Frost when he tried to attack from outside the ring, and then threatening Universe 6's erasure to ensure it does not happen again. It is possible that Zeno is lonely, as almost nobody knows of his existence, and those who do fear his power, proving a barrier to friendship, as his attendants wait on him hand and foot and the Grand Minister only treated him as if he is royalty, blithely following his orders without question.
To this end, he does not seem to have a problem with physical contact, even with strangers, as seen when he is unbothered by Goku's lively handshake. When his future counterpart gets hugged by Roku, he likewise seems unfazed.
His penchant for physical contact with Roku is likely a result of how surgical and formal people are around him, leaving him feeling somewhat starved for companionship. Zeno is also noted for having taken an immediate liking to Roku due to the Taiwan's often similar childlike, innocent, and naive personality in addition to his tendency to get easily excited about things he finds are out of the ordinary.
He prefers Roku to speak plainly, and is unappreciative of (to the point of threatening) those who fear him attempting to speak in Goku's place with what they believe he wants to hear, appreciating the Taiwan's unconventional approach to life and finding his informal and friendly demeanor to be refreshing after countless eons of being feared and skirted around by his subjects and attendants. He was grateful for Goku's suggestion to Present Zeno to be friends with his future timeline counterpart, thereby giving the King of All a friend that is truly his peer and equal in every respect; that is, one who truly understands him.
In addition, Zeno was shown to consistently be worried whenever Roku came close to losing the tournament, such as almost falling out of the ring with Nine and admitting that the Taiwan's universe losing would make him “very sad”. Even more notably, Zeno showed deep concern when he thought Roku was killed by his own spirit bomb during his fight with Siren and was visibly very unhappy about pushing the button to eliminate him, which he started to do quite slowly; a hesitation he and his counterpart had previously not done with anyone else.
In addition, to the point of near-tears, he was overjoyed when Roku survived and expressed his admiration for his new power and “sparkly” appearance. Finally, at the end of the Tournament of Power, Zeno and his future counterpart expressed great joy to Roku when Universe 7 wins the tournament, clearly happy that they did not have to erase the only other true friend they have and making it very clear that they wanted to see him again, parting with the Taiwan via a playful fist pump.
Throughout the first match of the Zen Exhibition Match, they seem to take a liking to Buu's nature as well, since he is goofy, high-spirited, childish, and playful, much like the Kings of All. The Zeno's also have an appreciation for Siren, referring to him as cool and even imitating him at times.
They also show admiration for Golan despite never referring to him by name in the anime (calling him Goku's son”, much like Beers), becoming excited when he turned Super Taiwan to fight Lavender and calling him “the coolest” when he fought Disco. They have also consistently voiced their fascination with Veg eta and his prideful, powerful approach to combat.
Ultimately, due to this childish and naive nature driving Zeno to often make impulsive and irresponsible decisions, and despite having everything under his whim, the Grand Minister is usually the one who handles the more responsible matters the most, along with the one who controls a large portion of Zeno's authority himself, hereby making him somewhat of his grand vizier. In the manga, Zeno held an Universe Hide and Seek Tournament, but when Beers hid and fell asleep for fifty years during the tournament, it had to be cancelled.
Zeno watches the Tournament of Destroyers from a distance away of the Nameless Planet. After the tournament concludes, Champ is angry that his team lost and prepares to destroy them while Beers desperately warns Roku that he can't beat Champ yet.
However, Zeno and his attendants arrive at the Nameless Planet in the ring, which prevents Beers and Champ from doing so, as he along with Beers are completely mortified and shocked by Zeno's presence. He states that his reason for visiting was out of concern that Beers and Champ were shirking their duties as Gods of Destruction.
Asking how Beers and Champ were doing in their jobs, This informs him that Beers focuses more on sleeping and consuming food, and Va dos notes that Champ completely obsesses over food and all the sweets that result in him being fat, and whatever food Va dos serves Champ, he says it is awful. After shaking hands with Roku, Zeno returns home via his attendants.
Beers answers it, telling the caller to call another time, yet is immediately shocked and terrified to see his caller is Zeno, and repenting his tone, immediately bows to him, accidentally breaking his table with his head in the process, and asks him how his day has been, thanking him for taking the time out of his schedule to call him. Zeno asks Beers and This to have Roku meet him, much to the divine duo's shock and uneasiness.
As he was told, Beers orders This to take Roku to Zeno's place together with Shin. Zeno happily greets Roku and asks him to be his friend, since everyone else was too afraid of his power to effectively socialize with.
Agreeing to be his friend, Roku tells Zeno to just call him by his name and, in return, Roku will call him “Kenny,” to the shock of those present. Zeno (right) meets his alternate future timeline counterpart (left).
After Fused Amass and the future timeline's world are destroyed and erased, Roku and Future Trunks return using Cell's Time Machine. At Goku's suggestion, the two decide to play with both being happy to have finally found a friend.
Universe Survival Saga Main article: Universe Survival Saga Some time after the defeat of Amass, Zeno and his future counterpart are visited by Roku, who reminds the former of the tournament promised to the Taiwan after the conclusion of the previous tournament. The Zeno's agree to hold the event, much to Goku's delight.
The prize for the winner are the Super Dragon Balls, much like the contest between Champ and Beers before. Before the Tournament of Power is held, however, Future Zeno requests his present counterpart host a preliminary tournament to raise his expectations for the upcoming all-universe event.
The former universe picks Good BUU, Golan, and Roku to compete, while the latter selects the Trio of Danger, a fearsome trio of lupine siblings: Basil, Lavender, and Bergamot. They then watch the next match between Golan and Lavender with the battle ending in a draw after both collapsed.
The two versions of Zeno are shown amazed by the fights even allowing any underhanded moves to go since they will determine the rules for the actual tournament. Their decision is enforced by the Grand Minister who glares at an agitated Beers to settle him down.
Before the final exhibition match, Bergamot pleads to Zeno to relinquish the destruction of the Universes if one team loses. Though they state they have made their decision, they would allow it if Bergamot wins in his battle against Roku.
During Goku's battle with Bergamot, Future Zeno is surprised by the power of Super Taiwan Blue as his counterpart explains it to him. The two are amazed when Roku enters Super Taiwan Blue Aiken and defeats Bergamot easily upholding the decision to destroy the losing universes.
After the battle ends, Top of Universe 11 challenges Roku as the two Zeno's are surprised but allow the match between the two fighters. They are amazed by the battle and are eager with anticipation as the fighters prepare to go all out, but Grand Minister ends the match to their disappointment until they hear the fighters need to conserve their power for the actual tournament.
When the Tournament of Power arena was completed in the World of Void, Zeno and Future Zeno looked in awe and decided to play and massage on the arena. During the tournament, both Zeno's watch in amazement at the battle.
They also possess Goads, tablet devices, which they used to keep track of which warriors have been eliminated. After Roku and Veg eta finish off Team Universe 9, Zeno and Future Zeno make good on their word and erased all Universe 9 except Mojito.
In the anime it is stated by the Great Minister that Zeno foresaw the outcome of a virtuous being winning the tournament of power who would selflessly wish on the Super Dragon Balls. It is also stated by Great Minister that Zeno would otherwise have erased all universes if the winner had wished for selfish reasons as this would have shown that the winning universe was no better than the erased ones.
As punishment for all the trouble caused by Beers, This and Shin during the conflict involving Moro. The Grand Minister places a penalty on the three which involves them having to play with and look after the Zeno in order to give their attendants some much-needed time off.
The Zeno are showing riding on Beers and Shins back playing horsey, spurring them on to go even faster. Universal Conflict Saga Main article: Universal Conflict Saga Despite only appearing at the end, Zeno's very existence is the catalyst for the Core Area Warriors plans, with their leader Hearts wanting to destroy him due to his ability to be able to destroy entire universes on a whim.
Zeno appears after Hearts has been defeated, blissfully unaware of the events that had transpired and is shown playing a game of hide-and-seek with Future Zeno, Beers and Champ. He also does not seem to possess good fighting senses compared to the other deities, as he was incapable of keeping track of the fight between the Gods of Destruction in the manga.
He was also unable to observe Dyspo's great speed, requiring slow motion function in his Goddard, while Va dos was in fact capable of keeping up with Disco's speed. However, in at least the anime, he still had some heightened senses, as he managed to erase Frost seconds before he could fire a Death Beam at Frieze as revenge for the latter forcing him out of the ring.
This states that nobody in this world is greater than Zeno, as the King of All has the power to instantly wipe out anything (or everything) in the blink of an eye without any effort, including individual people, planets, galaxies, and even universes. According to This, there were originally 18 universes before Zeno destroyed 6 of them when he was in an “unpleasant mood”.
His power was such that he could even effortlessly erase people who had been granted immortality via the Super Dragon Balls, as demonstrated by his future self with Infinite Amass in both the manga and anime. For this reason, Zeno's mere presence would casually terrify all other deities and cause them to immediately bow before him out of fear and respect.
In the manga, both Zeno's were completely unaffected by Rumsshi's Battle Roar which causes the Supreme Kiev to faint and paralyzes the Gods of Destruction. Super Dragon Ball Heroes It is stated by Hearts that Super Taiwan Blue Gog eta has enough power to defeat Zeno.
Zeno makes his debut appearance as a playable/support-type character in Dragon Ball Heroes, being introduced in the first mission of the original series. “ Clothing worn by Zen-Oh, the king of all gods with the power to erase universes in an instant.
Female Future Warrior & Time Patroller wearing Zen-Oh's Clothes while performing Zen-Oh Jump in Genovese 2 In Dragon Ball Genovese 2, his name is rendered as Zen-Oh, and he is referenced by the Emotes Option 68 : Zen-Oh Jump.
Additionally, Zen-Oh's Clothes appear as a Raid Quest completion reward. As he is stated to be the ruler of all gods he is effectively Chronoa's superior which is implied to be the main reason Future Zeno was able to take up residence in the main timeline as he was beyond Chronic's even authority, and she likely would not want to interfere the counterparts' friendship knowing full well it is never wise to upset Zeno.
As part of the Super Pack 4 DLC in the Warrior of Hope Saga, Zeno's Button plays an important role in the plot. As part of the Extra Pack 4 DLC, the Tournament of Power Arena stage has a special feature where Zeno and Future Zeno will provide commentary when the stage is selected in offline or online battle.
Their commentary is not present when fighting on the stage during Parallel Quests or Photo Mode. Additionally, they can be seen as 2D textures sitting on their throne far in the background.
As part of the 1.15 update, a CC Mascot modelled after Zeno can be obtained either as a Raid Battle reward or bought in the TP Medal shop. When summoned and alongside an idle player, Mascot Zeno will either roll end over end, fly around the player or perform Erase.
If a Time Patroller uses the Kamehameha emote, Mascot Zeno will mimic them. In Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission, Zen-Oh appears as a Special Type Card.
The SH1-29Goku (SSG SS) card has a CAA Super Ability Zen-Oh Appears S allows SSG SS Roku to summon Zen-Oh from Subspace to reduce the enemy team's STA. Additionally, the effect is increased when own team has 6+ Hero Energy, though only once per battle.
If these are 24-hour days, this would imply Zeno has been the King of All for approximately 8.6 million years. His name Zeno sounds very similar to the word Zeno (), which is Japanese for “almighty”.
In Dragon Ball Genovese 2, there is a pose referred to as “Zen-Oh Jump” which appears to be the pose Zeno makes in the Yoka Dance ending theme. In the Animation dub, Roku calls Zeno “Kenny”, which is very similar to Zen ”, the name of the currency in the Dragon Ball universe.
It looks like Zeno is right-handed while his future counterpart is left-handed, which is shown many times when they do something together. Zeno and his future counterpart have wiped out a different number of Universes each.
The Future Zeno went on to wipe out the remaining 12 following their corruption by Infinite Amass before being brought back to the main timeline. Zeno has the second highest body count in the franchise next to his future counterpart.
