In the preview for the next Dragon Ball Super episode, we can see Mr. Satan turning into a Super Saiyan. Wait. What?

The episode’s teaser is blink-and-you’ll-miss-it short. We don’t have much more to go on that a few frames of animation (via 2ch). But the teaser seems to clearly show Mr. Satan (aka Hercule) in Super Saiyan form.

This is so bonkers.

Does this mean that Mr. Satan actually becomes a Super Saiyan? This theory seems to think so, while this one does not. It could be, you know, a dream or something.


Even if Mr. Satan doesn’t really turn into a Super Saiyan in the next episode, there’s some good that comes of all of this: That golden moustache.
