The episode 110 of Dragon Ball Super featured one of the biggest fight yet in the Tournament of Power. Jiren vs Goku was one heck of a fight and you got this vibe that one universe could get erased any minute. Jiren’s power was shown in full view for the first time, though I need to say that he hasn’t shown anything special but his colossal Ki.
It has been a one-sided battle, with Goku being the underdog even on his Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken x 20. He planned to use his trump card, the Spirit Bomb, but this also failed. Jiren let out more of his power through only his glare and deflected the Spirit Bomb. Gathering all his strength, Goku let out another Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken x 20 and redirected it to Jiren, but that also failed. Jiren has come out scot-free for Goku’s defeat.
And for a moment, everyone thought that Goku was finished. Even Zeno-sama is preparing to tap that fear-inducing GodPad. Everyone thought that this is the end for Son Goku of Universe 7, well, except for the Universe 7 team. Universe 7 was right and everyone got to see Goku ascending from mortal into a God.
According to Whis, the energy from Goku’s Spirit Bomb entered the Saiyan’s body as he falls into that exploding energy. Goku fought the primal urge which surfaces in the body’s acceptance of a huge power. This, as Whis put it, made Goku broke through the shell to the deeper potential within himself. Though he is still a mortal, he has been capable to achieve this God-like state.
This unknown state is dubbed by fans as the Limit Breaker state. The Limit Breaker state made Goku achieve the “Ultra Instinct”, this is when an entity learned to move their body parts without them thinking. Even the Gods of Destruction cannot achieve this easily. Hence, in this unlikely moment, Goku basically surpassed all the Gods of Destruction.
The reason why Goku cannot carry on his power is that he cannot contain the power of the Spirit Bomb in his body. Limit Breaker form is not a Super Saiyan form so it means that he cannot achieve this form willingly. Basically, the energy is leaking out of Goku’s body because he cannot contain it even in full calmness. It takes a lot of his concentration to suppress that primal urge inside his body.
Goku is simply not ready to use this state. Though he might have the requisites to access it during his moment in the Tournament of Power, he doesn’t have the requisite to maintain it. But because of this, his current limit has been broken, and his potential was heightened to yet another level.
Jiren’s Real Identity In Dragon Ball Super
Jiren is the most powerful mortal we have ever seen so far in the whole Dragon Ball series. Even Goku is not a match for him in his Super Saiyan states. Goku was owned even on his Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken x 20. This furthermore reinstates the idea that Jiren is actually that mortal that even a God of Destruction cannot defeat.
It seems like Jiren is the one that is on the rumors about a mortal that even a God of Destruction cannot defeat. It was confirmed in this episode that Jiren is in the God of Destruction level, even surpassing Belmod, the God of Destruction of Universe 11. If Jiren decided to challenge Beerus, even the God of Destruction in Universe 7 will have to use a large amount of his power.
Jiren’s achievement seems too much for a mortal, even in Goku’s caliber. This huge power can only be achieved by undergoing an intense training for mortals and even Gods under their Angels. Jiren’s power is so OP that he even reminds me of that gag character from another anime.
The God-like Ki and the perfect movements, this makes me think if Jiren is actually a mortal. It is possible that Jiren will be a God of Destruction candidate if here really want to. But what if he doesn’t really need to be a God of Destruction candidate? What if he is a former God of Destruction?
This theory can explain some unexplainable things that surround Jiren’s character.
