Hey everyone! Goku’s was able to achieve a new form in Dragon Ball Super Episode 110. This happened during this fight vs Jiren. Goku had to face a foe that was as strong as a God of Destruction, and possibly even stronger. You need to have huge power in order to take down someone of that stature.
Naturally, Goku’s regular attacks didn’t really have any effect on him. Even his Kaio-ken x20 was pretty much useless. Jiren toyed with him when Goku was in Super Saiyan Blue form. However, Goku soon absorbed the Spirit Bomb and that triggered a new form, which was known as Ultra Instinct. Ultra Instinct the official name of the new form, and it is something that allows Goku to be feared even among the Gods.
Ultra Instinct has actually been taught to Goku and Vegeta by Whis. This happened around the time of the Freeza’s resurrection. It is the power which can basically be called complete awareness. He doesn’t need to think to react to incoming threat. Instead, his body moves on its own, even if he is not looking at the threat that’s coming his way. Goku’s Ki in this form is said to be extremely hot.
But, since it’s a state of all-awareness, he is very calm at the same time. This power awakened in Goku because his Spirit Bomb collided with his willpower, and his will didn’t give out, which ultimately led to the breaking of the “shell” of his innermost potential. This power can be learnt by many, yet, not even some Gods have completely mastered it.
That’s what makes it so great, and because of that, I think Goku’s mastery of this technique will make him God of Destruction level. People like Whis can use this power at any time. Whis in particular is using it all the time. Goku is so far the only one who needs to transform in order to use this power. In the case of Beerus and others, they can use it without transforming. Even then, Goku’s version of this power is not complete yet.
He may have achieved the mastery of this technique, but we don’t know if he’ll be able to re-awaken its power again. But, in my opinion, that’s likely to happen again in the Tournament of Power. Goku’s new form is something that cannot be a one-time power only. Jiren still exists in the Tournament of Power, and to beat him, Goku needs the power of Ultra Instinct. Without it, there is no way Goku can even get close to his level.
Why Jiren Can Use Ultra Instinct As Well – Explained
Ultra Instinct is a power that allows some to react to incoming threats without having to think about it. It was first mentioned in the series by Whis. Whis taught it to Beerus at first, who seems to have a hang of this technique, but he mastered it completely. Later, Whis taught it to Goku and Vegeta.
While neither of them were able to grasp it at first, Goku seems to have learnt this ability completely now. At the Tournament of Power, Goku unleashed this ability against Jiren, and he was able to match him in combat completely. This shocked all spectators, and even the likes of Beerus and Whis were left stunned by it. Using Ultra Instinct, Goku’s powers reached a whole new level.
At some points, it appeared as if Goku was able to overwhelm Jiren, but the energy he was using wore off. In this major fight, there was one thing worth noticing. Jiren was able to keep up with Goku even when he used Ultra Instinct. Now, we saw that Beerus used Ultra Instinct against all other Gods of Destruction in Zen exhibition match as well, but they weren’t able to hit him at all. Yet, Jiren was able to hit Goku and forced him to block the moves.
Could it be that Goku is not the only mortal who knows how to use Ultra Instinct? I think that’s highly possible. Jiren is described as someone who has the power of a God of Destruction, and maybe even beyond. The concept of Ultra Instinct is very notorious among the Gods.
