Besides being a nefarious character, Goku Black can transform into the pink-haired Super Saiyan Rose form.

But who exactly is Goku Black? Online people have been shooting around theories, but in upcoming episodes will finally find out the character’s true identity.

As pointed out by Yaraon!, the trailer for episode 60 is up on Toei’s official YouTube channel. The clip’s title is “Return to the Future: Revealing Goku Black’s True Form.”

This episode, however, apparently does not actually reveal Goku Black’s identity. Instead, what appears to be a television guide listing states Goku Black’s true shape will be revealed in episode 61.

This latest leak is unconfirmed, but as we’ve already seen, the Super Saiyan Rose spoilers leaked last month in a Japanese television guide were later proven true.

The latest leak, which is titled “Goku Black’s True Form Revealed!!,” states that Zamasu (pictured, below) used Dragon Balls to change bodies and minds with Goku.

YouTuber The Fan Guy pointed out that there are other similarities, including their ki, their motives, their fighting techniques, and even their aura.

The thing that has thrown people off is that Zamasu has been shown with Goku Black, but that could probably be explained by there being different Zamasus in different timelines.

YouTuber Geekdom101 wonders if there could even be a Zamasu with Goku’s mind, which would certainly be an interesting development. Stay tuned.

The whole DBZ thing has been taken too far for me. I loved it when the Super Saiyan states were just where they still had gold hair. Now its blue and pink and god knows what else.

It’s getting milked to a point where it just tastes sour now...
