Storyline

The events of Battle of Gods take place some years after the battle with Majin Buu, which determined the fate of the entire universe. Bills, the God of Destruction, is tasked with maintaining some sort of balance in the universe. After awakening from a long slumber, Bills is visited by Whis and learns that the galactic overlord Frieza has been defeated by a Super Saiyan from the North Quadrant of the universe named Goku, who is also a former student of the North Kai. Ecstatic over the new challenge, Goku ignores King Kai's advice and battles Bills, but he is easily overwhelmed and defeated. Bills leaves, but his eerie remark of "Is there nobody on Earth more worthy to destroy?" lingers on. Now it is up to the heroes to stop the God of Destruction before all is lost.

Trivia

Bulma declares she is 38 years old; however according to the "Dragon Ball" timeline she is actually 45 years old. See more »

Goofs

When Bulma asked Mai's age, she answers 41. If Mai is 41 years old, it means she was only 12 years old at the beginning of the Dragon Ball series, the same age as Gokû, one year younger than Krillin and 4 years younger than Bulma, despite looking older and acting more mature than all the mentioned characters.

Quotes

[English dub]
Bulma: Oh, good! You're finally here, Vegeta! But, This is my birthday, not a Halloween party. So, why are you sitting around in your combat gear? What's wrong? You look even more sullen than usual. Mad that humans do this little thing called aging and your poor wife's another year older? Forget the powers. The best part of being a Saiyan must be never having to worry about losing your looks.
Vegeta: [waiting for Beerus and yells at Bulma] SHUT UP!
[All the Z-Fighters look shocked]
Bulma: It's my birthday, ...

The strongest being in Universe......
2 October 2013 | by peacech23See all my reviews

I believed: Since for the past few years, people like to make crossover/ comparison between the heroes from manga, anime or video games, "Who is the strongest superhero on EARTH or UNIVERSE". & the answer simply drop to DBZ - Son GokU. The strongest superhero in Universe. Indirectly cause unpleasant (or u may called it butthurt) to other manga, comic & superhero die-hard fans.

To make it Clear: DBZ BOG illustrated that bside Goku, there have another well powerful being, & they were totally difference level compared to GOku - the Saiya tribe.

"Finally, I'll tell you something good....This is the 7th Universe. I am the 7th God of Destruction. There are 12 Universes in total. Don't you think there were would be, many more powerful being?"- Lord Bills

Well, u may enjoy the fighting scene & hilarious jokes from Vegeta in this film.
