Dragon Ball is a very successful franchise that’s been staying at the top since its inception. Chapter 69 of Dragon Ball Super continues the Granolah the Survivor Arc by following its titular warrior and is still in its early phase of the arc. Dragon Ball Super has debuted a new set of Dragon Balls with the newest chapter of the series! The Dragon Ball franchise has a lot of memorable characters and moments, but the series would not be as impacting without its titular Dragon Balls. Fans find out about a new set of wish-granting Dragon Balls belonging to a Namekian who is now living on Planet Cereal in the rebuilt community following the death of Granolah’s people.
The chapter introduces us to Monaito, the final survivor from a tribe of Namekians that were living on planet Cereal. He currently lives with Granolah on the outskirts of a rebuilt town, and he currently has a single small (at least compared to the original set) Dragon Ball in his possession. He says Granolah would need two to make a wish, but the second ball had been lost for forty years. it seems a prophecy will accompany this arc which foretells the birth of the universe’s greatest warrior to date.
According to the Oracle Fish, a warrior is about to be born into Universe 7 that surpasses Goku. The first is more literal as fans are curious if a new fighter is about to be born. Bulla was born amidst the drama of Dragon Ball Super, so it is possible. There is always a chance a new Saiyan could be born perhaps on Broly’s side, but any warrior could be literally birthed this arc according to the Oracle Fish.
Dragon Ball Heroes episode 33, “New Space-Time War! The Ultimate Fierce Battle Begins!”, certainly lives up to its name. As soon as Goku wakes up in the new universe, he’s greeted by new versions of Freeza and Cooler, who immediately try to annihilate him. However, Goku gets a big save from none other than Hearts, the former leader of the Core Area Warriors. Dragon Ball Heroes previews teased that Goku would be getting a reunion with Hearts, while also floating the question of what the circumstances would be. Now we know that Hearts will actually be fighting beside Goku in this brave new world, as the two combine their powers to take out Freeza and Cooler.

As we have seen earlier, Hearts is a gifted fighter. He used a combination of psychic abilities with devastating effects. He is so powerful that SSB Goku couldn’t even stand a chance against Hearts in their battle. There was no way for Goku to cop a win. It was only when Goku and Vegeta fused and went SSB Gogeta to finally end Hearts for good. However, the formidable fighter is out of Hel and is fighting along the good side. Or maybe it seems. We do not know that yet.
Hearts’ ultimate goal was to defeat Grand Zenos and free mortals from the grip of the gods; instead, he wound up being a pawn of the demon prince, Fu. As Hearts and Goku no ally with each other in this new universe, you can bet that Hearts probably has some new scheme to both get his revenge on Fu, and still take out the Omni-Kings, as well. Chapter 69 of Dragon Ball Super continues to explore the kind of character Granolah is, and he (and fans) are introduced to a new kind of Dragon Balls from a Namekian that is living with him. It’s here that he eventually discovers they can grant any wish, and Grenolah reveals that his wish is to become the greatest warrior in the universe.
This is increasingly looking like Granolah will actually take on this role as the foretold warrior. This could very well be the case, but it’s also looking like it might be a fake-out. The wish-granting dragon is a different kind than we have seen in the past, and with it only being two Dragon Balls strong, there’s a good chance there will be limits on the type of wishes it could grant.
As for the types of wishes that are possible with Monaito’s version of the Dragon Balls, we’ll be seeing that soon enough as Granolah ended the chapter by successfully finding out the second ball and wishing to become the greatest warrior in the universe. The chapter ends before we see it granted (or find out the new dragon’s official name), so that brings into question whether or not it can be.
