Hey everyone! Dragon Ball Super Episode 123 aired today, and I think it was one of the best episodes that we’ve had so far. The episode was packed with action from start to finish, with Goku being at the center of it all. Before I begin discussing this post, I want you guys to know that it contains spoilers from Episode 123 and potential spoilers from the remaining part of the Tournament of Power.
If you haven’t watched the episode already, please do so. Now that you’ve watched it, let’s continue. Jiren’s unbelievable powers were once again displayed in Dragon Ball Super Episode 123. As most people expected, he was not at full power when Goku fought him before, or in the previous episode as well.
Only after being outmaneuvered by Goku, he powered up, and according to Belmod, he began to show what his full power was like. I’m sure that Jiren has got a lot more in store than what we saw in Episode 123, but there was something interesting that caught my eye. When Goku used SSBKkx20, and then Vegeta went past his limits with his blue form, Jiren was actually pushed back, and he couldn’t keep up with the two of them together.
This was very interesting to me, because it means that they’re close to Jiren when they fight together with every ounce of energy that they have. But what if they were to fuse? If we see Vegetto Blue at this point, then I’m sure Jiren will be defeated. With the new Super Saiyan Blue form of Vegeta, and Goku’s Kaio-ken, Jiren can surely be defeated by Vegetto.
It looks that’s the best way for Universe 7 to deal with Jiren. Sure, Jiren is very powerful. But, can he handle Vegetto Blue? Opinions may vary, but I don’t think so. Last time we saw Vegetto, he diffused in 5 minutes. The time remaining in the Tournament of Power is just 7 minutes.
So, maybe after 2 minutes, Goku and Vegeta will fuse, and they won’t have to worry about diffusing while fighting Jiren because Vegetto can last at least 5 minutes the last time. But this is just one of the possibilities. It is possible that Ultra Instinct Goku returns, and then he manages to take down Jiren, which I think is something that won’t happen. I don’t think even Ultra Instinct Goku has what it takes to beat Jiren. But that’s my opinion. We’ll find out as the Tournament of Power progresses.
2 God Level Warriors Almost Got Eliminated
Hey everyone! Today, I want to talk about Dragon Ball Super Episode 123. The episode aired a couple of hours ago, so I hope you guys have already watched it. If you haven’t, I suggest that you do, because this post contains heavy spoilers from the episode. With that out of the way, let’s begin.
Dragon Ball Super Episode 122 saw Vegeta beaten by Jiren, and Goku picking up from where Vegeta left off. The new episode was mainly focused on Goku, and his fight against Jiren. There wasn’t much to be excited about in this fight, considering we already know how powerful Jiren is, and that Super Saiyan Blue is no match for him. Even Goku knew it, and he approached Jiren with caution. This time around, it was different, however.
Unlike last time, where Goku went all out, he took a strategic approach against Jiren, and tried to turn his overconfidence against him. Goku’s strategy for this fight was to trap Jiren, and then try to eliminate him.
He almost succeeded in this plan as well. But this is Jiren we’re talking about. There is absolutely no way he could’ve been defeated that easily. He’s just too powerful, and it would also have been a huge disappointment. As expected, Jiren climbed back up instantly, and he battered Goku. It took help from Vegeta in his new form to push Jiren back, and even then Jiren wasn’t using his full power.
Further, Jiren wasn’t the only character who was on the verge of being defeated in Dragon Ball Super Episode 123. Toppo was nearly eliminated as well. Strength-wise, he was levels above both Gohan and 17. But, 17’s strategy worked wonders, and Toppo would’ve been eliminated if Gohan wouldn’t have stopped his attack.
