First thing first, I want to emphasize “eliminate”, not “beat” because in Jiren’s state right now, he is undeniably unbeatable. Unless Goku would have the power of Ultra Instinct again, we would never see anyone who can take Jiren one on one without being the underdog. And this is just my opinion so please take all your flamethrowers away, thank you.
This list is based on two things: power and luck. You cannot include logic in this list because Jiren is far beyond our minds can comprehend. I am no Akira Toriyama but I’ll do my best to make this more Dragon Ball Super-esque than opinion.
Gohan, who is a capable warrior like his father, is at the end of my list. There are a lot of factors that need to be considered when it comes to Gohan’s character. Compared to his father, who becomes more powerful when pushed back in a corner, Gohan becomes more powerful when he is in a state of pure rage.
What he got in the two factors I consider is power. His Mystic Form is not really that weak because he can fight with characters who we believed to be stronger than him like Super Saiyan Blue Goku. And if there is something that can make it all more convincing, if Gohan takes Jiren in a better timing (tired or heavily damaged), Gohan could pull the victory for Universe 7.
All Vegeta fans are hoping that Vegeta will have something relevant to do on Tournament of Power other than being the center of theories. What Vegeta has is power and luck, with luck having a stronger effect than power. We all know that Vegeta got less raw power compared to Goku and Hit. But while Goku was running around trying to beat enemies, Vegeta has been inside the Mafuba Jar and almost got eliminated.
He was in trouble early on, with Bota-Magetta teaming up with him and being constantly bothered by Ribrianne throughout the tournament. But that big forehead and his lucky gloves are saving him all the time. In addition, he still has options, to use his secret ROSAT technique or to fuse with Goku to bring out Gogeta. It is hard to know what would happen (or if both things would happen) but things will escalate quickly for Vegeta after that.
Frieza got both the factors that I consider, power and luck, and in addition, the wit to match his evilness. He got perfect plans and can execute it in the greatest timing, like a predator and his prey. And because of this, I can’t even tell if Jiren will be able to predict Frieza’s plans.
How lucky might Frieza be? Kinda lucky if you ask me. The thing about Frieza is his luck with opportunities to gain an advantage. I think that Frieza meeting Frost in the Tournament of Power is a pure luck for Universe 7 ice-jin. Not because he can beat the hell out of Frost and also exact revenge in Universe 7, but because of Frost, he can set up his stage for the final moment of his plans. If you ask me, he can get opportunities for eliminating Jiren and I think it will have an element of surprise, as always.
Before you even got your Kamehamehas thrown on me, hear me out. I will ask you one question, would you rather see this person stay in the tournament of power for an important role later on or just for our annoyment? I think Akira Toriyama still did not decide to push the eject button for Ribrianne because she has something to do with Jiren.
Ribrianne got a lot of luck in the Tournament of Power. Her luck is mainly because no one doesn’t really take a time to fight her seriously. I’ll root for Vegeta to eliminate her out.
Goku got the power, the luck, and his new unleashed potential. Remember the first time he got Super Saiyan God? His body adapted to that power that he was able to fight against Beerus even in his Super Saiyan form. And I noticed something about this picture here. Does this look familiar to you? Yep, this is the first appearance of Ultra Instinct form.
I think he can transform into that form one more time and will look like this. There is a red aura which was never shown on the last episode. I kinda hope that we will see this form one more time in the tournament of power.
I forgot to mention to Hit but according to latest news *don’t read further if you don’t wanna get spoiled* Hit is going to get eliminated.
3 Possible Ways To Defeat Jiren In Dragon Ball Super – Explained
After seeing a little of what Jiren is capable of in the back to back episodes this past weekend, it got me wondering “just how can this behemoth of a fighter actually be defeated?”.
It seems like a head on battle with force and power will not work unless you have the power of a God of Destruction or an Angel, and higher. Then I started thinking and came up with a few theories of my own. So let’s talk about the possible ways Jiren can be defeated in the Tournament of Power!
Theory #1: Over load his Senses!
This is one of my favorites! It has been shown that Jiren has sense’s that are basically second to none, and definitely the best sense’s in the Tournament! From knowing where the blocks for the Tournament Stage were going, to knowing how much energy to hit someone with, and knowing where attacks are coming from to block them! This is what led me to think “Over load Jiren’s sense’s!”. It makes perfect sense, distract Jiren by over loading his sense’s with an attack like “Solar Flare” or something of the sorts. Also by making noise, maybe by shooting a barrage of ki blasts around him? This could be the key to over whelming Jiren and getting the upper hand!
Theory #2: The Strongest Fighters of ALL Universe’s unite!
This is another theory that could potentially work! All the Universe’s left participating realize there is no one that can take Jiren out of this Tournament alone. Coming to the conclusion that Jiren has this won, the other Universe’s come together in order to take on the remaining 3 members of the Pride Troopers from Universe 11! Yes, we are shown Hit fighting Jiren, but could Hit really eliminate Jiren on his own when Goku bests Hit every time? Believe me, it will be an amazing fight between Hit and Jiren, but Jiren won’t be going anywhere for a while!
Theory #3: The Miraculous FUSION!
Yes, I needed to throw this in here! Now before I get the normal replies of “Potara is an outside item which is illegal” or “Vegeta doesn’t know the Fusion Dance” let me explain something first! First off, we know when faced with someone as strong as Jiren which could arguably be the strongest opponent we have seen Goku and the other’s face besides Beerus.. Also when faced with a fighter of Jiren’s magnitude and the existence of our World is on the line Vegeta would put his pride on the side.. But I’m not talking about Vegeta!
I’m talking about Goku and.. Gohan! All the way back in Dragon Ball Z, Goku when armed with the Potara Earrings to fight Majin Buu, Goku was looking for Gohan to fuse with! Goku didn’t know Gohan was taken by Majin Buu.
