In Dragon Ball Super, it is told that Gods of Destruction and Supreme Kais come in pairs, so if a Supreme Kai dies, Beerus also dies. What about the other Kaioshin? West Kaioshin, North Kaioshin, South Kaioshin , Grand Supreme Kai, Elder Kai, Gowasu, Zamasu, shouldn't they have or get Gods of Destruction?

And what about Kaioshin students who later on become Kaioshins, do they have a God of Destruction when they are born or when they are upgraded to Kaioshins? How does it work?

    This wasn't elaborated on very well in the manga or the show. As you already said supreme kai always has a god of destruction counterpart. But nothing was ever said about the other kais.

  • I think either Toei or Toyotaro or Akira Toriyama just throw new concept or ideas without caring too much if they conflict with old ones, and if at some point doing this brings conflict with the story they are trying to make they try to fix it somehow. In some Dragon Ball wikia they suggest that all the kais together are the countepart of the god of destruction, and they all have to die for the god of destruction to die. That doesnt clarify either that the series suggest kais are countepart when they are born, and in the series we see kais are promoted to that position after being students

    That is litterally how toriyama works. I mean this is the guy who said that the reason why Gohan's tale disappeared was because he just got tired of drawing it and eventually forgot.

  • I remember that God of Destruction dies when all kaioshin die.

1 Answer 1


Supreme Kais are chosen from the regular Kais, for a single universe. One of the 7th Universe's Supreme Kais is the East Supreme Kai. This is process is elaborated in Chapter 16 of Dragon Ball Chou, when Zamasu undergoes training to become the Supreme Kai of the 10th Universe.

There are 12 Gods of Destruction, for each universe. It means that in one universe, there can only be one God Of Destruction.

From the wikia article on Supreme Kai:

Normally there are three Supreme Kai in each Universe, with two on duty and if one of the Supreme Kai was to die in an accident, then the currently-inactive third Supreme Kai would grow in the Sacred World of the Kai like a plant.

Therefore, each God of Destruction is linked with the Supreme Kais of that universe.

But the article also states that:

[Supreme Kais] are the Gods of Creation who provide the catalyst for life and planets to be born, as opposed to the Gods of Destruction who destroy life and planets, which maintains the balance of the universe.

This states that a God of Destruction and their Supreme Kais have a yin-yang relationship. One cannot exist without the other.

So the other normal Kai aren't related to the God of Destruction's well being.
