The Zen Exhibition Match (全覧試合 zenran-jiai) is a short preliminary event held in order to heighten anticipation for the fights of the Tournament of Power, and to show the Future Zen-Oh how tournaments take place, as he did not witness the previous tournament. It takes place in Zen-Oh's Palace.

The two universes selected for the exhibition match, Universe 9 (lvl 1.86) and Universe 7 (lvl 3.18), are those with the lowest average mortal level among the twelve universes.


When Great Priest announced the intended date of the Tournament of Power, he informed Goku that the present Zen-Oh and future Zen-Oh had agreed to host a preliminary match between three warriors from Universe 7 and 9 to test the abilities of the participants.

Goku was given one hour to recruit two of his allies for the Zen Exhibition Match. His first choice was Vegeta, who declined due to Bulma about to give birth. Trunks and Goten were not considered because there was no way of foreseeing how strong the opponents are. Goku then chose Gohan and Majin Buu, and allowed Hercule to accompany them in order to keep Majin Buu under control.


The participants of the Zen Exhibition Match are three members of Team Universe 7: Goku, Gohan and Majin Buu against Team Universe 9's Trio De Dangers: Bergamo, Lavender and Basil

The losers of the Zen Exhibition Match will have their universe wiped out if Zen-Oh is not pleased with the fight.

Bergamo uses the energy of Goku's attacks to fight him (who was a Super Saiyan).

Goku later overpowers him after using the Kamehameha while transformed in Super Saiyan Blue combined with Kaio Ken. Bergamo returns to his normal size and falls to the ground, making Goku the winner of the final match.
