Beerus was always this strong. Anyone who thinks otherwise is in denial.

Some guys here call out DB YouTubers for using a headcanon training excuse or retcon to justify Beerus' upscaling because they'd believed Beerus was long since surpassed.

But if the GoD Royale exists, how do they even believe Beerus was always this strong? (Goes out to @Peak , @AnonDB , @lilhurk1985187 )
As memory can be a paradise which we can't be driven, it can also be a hell which we cannot escape.

I can’t choose between option A and B, because they’re BOTH true from one perspective!

From an in-universe perspective, he was ALWAYS this strong..

From an out-of-universe perspective, his power was clearly retconned!

Beerus is written to always be better than Goku or Vegeta. So in a sense, it's both he's always been this strong *and* it's a retcon, since his "goalpost" keeps moving.

Well, this is meant to be a belief, which is out of universe.

You can call it a retcon or not.

Either way. It’s being written as him always being this strong.
