Personality Of Zamasu
Zamasu’s personality undergoes significant changes throughout his arc in Dragon Ball Super. Initially, he appears as a calm and composed individual, typical of a Kaioshin. He takes his duties as a god very seriously and believes in maintaining order and justice in the universe.
However, as Merged Zamasu’s disdain for mortals grows, his personality becomes increasingly twisted and fanatical. He develops a deep-seated hatred for humanity, viewing them as inherently corrupt and unworthy of existence. This hatred fuels his desire to eradicate all mortals and create a world of his own design.
Merged Zamasu personality becomes characterized by arrogance, self-righteousness, and a superiority complex. He feels himself to be superior to all other beings and sees his acts as legitimate in his quest for a purported “utopia.” He displays a contemptuous and arrogant attitude toward people and their emotions, thinking that they are the root of all evil.
As Corrupted Zamasu gains immense power through his fusion and transformation, his personality becomes even more unstable and deranged. He becomes consumed by his own godly status, viewing himself as invincible and above the laws of the universe. This arrogance leads to a distorted sense of justice, where he believes that his actions are beyond reproach.
Zamasu’s physical appearance undergoes several transformations throughout his appearances in Dragon Ball Super. Initially, as a regular Kaioshin from Universe 10, he has a similar appearance to other Supreme Kais. He has pale green skin, pointed ears, and wears the traditional Kaioshin attire, consisting of a purple and green robe with white lining.
After switching bodies with Goku and becoming “goku black and zamasu,” Zamasu’s appearance changes to resemble Goku’s physical features. He retains Goku’s spiky black hair but with a slightly altered style, where the hair stands up more prominently. His eyes turn from their original green color to a sinister shade of gray.
When Corrupted Zamasu fused with his alternate timeline counterpart, he transformed into “Fused Zamasu.” In this form, his appearance becomes even more menacing and distinctive. His complexion turns a light grayish-white tone, and he has a powerful and commanding figure. On top of his head, he has a big white mohawk that is matted, and two long, curving horns protrude from his forehead. His eyes become a piercing light green, giving him an otherworldly and intimidating gaze.
Power Of Zamasu:

- Manga Mastery: In the manga, Zamasu’s prowess is evident as he effortlessly outmaneuvers Kibito in an exhibition match. Gowasu stops the match before Merged Zamasu can land a decisive blow. Shin, another Supreme Kai, acknowledges Zamasu’s skills as nearly unmatched among all Supreme Kais across the twelve universes.
- Respect for Universe 7 Supreme Kais: Zamasu holds Universe 7’s Supreme Kais in high regard due to their victory over Majin Buu.
- Anime Battle with Goku: During his battle with Super Saiyan 2 Goku in the anime, Zamasu showcases remarkable skill by carefully intercepting Goku’s punches. However, he struggles against Goku’s surprising power, which Gowasu believes rivals that of a God of Destruction.
- Defeat by Goku: Ultimately, Goku overpowers Zamasu with his sheer strength and defeats him. Merged Zamasu later admits that he could have performed better during their fight but was distressed at the time.
- Potential to Surpass Beerus: Despite his defeat, Goku suggests that Corrupted Zamasu may have the potential to become as strong as Beerus, the God of Destruction. However, Beerus dismisses this notion, claiming that their power levels are on entirely different levels.
