Super Saiyan Blue is one of most powerful transformations that we’ve ever seen in Dragon Ball history. It was first introduced to us in Dragon Ball Resurrection F movie, and has also made its way into the Dragon Ball Super anime, and manga. As you all know this form is extensively used by both Goku, and Vegeta. It has been a while since they’ve powered up beyond a form now.
I think pretty much everyone agrees that there are levels to Super Saiyan Blue as well. There isn’t just one level. Just like the regular Super Saiyan, I think Blue will have levels too. In the manga, we already have them. We have Super Saiyan Blue, followed by Perfected/Completed Super Saiyan Blue. In the anime, there is no such thing. However, the recent episode of Dragon Ball Super put a lot of fans in a state of confusion.
As you know, Goku and Vegeta went all out against Jiren in Dragon Ball Super Episode 122. Both of them powered up Blue to its absolute maximum, and it seemed like Goku achieved the Super Saiyan Blue 2 form. There was a lot of difference in hair style, and the aura of Super Saiyan Blue was surrounded by Yellow sparks. So, was it Super Saiyan Blue 2, or not? It certainly did look like that to many fans.
But, to me it looked like the normal Super Saiyan Blue form. The only difference was the way the characters were drawn. Different artists draw characters in a different way. Some of you may know that the staff for each episode of an anime is different. There are different animators working on a scene, and then there is the key animator as well.
The staff that handled Dragon Ball Super Episode 122 made it appear like Goku was in Super Saiyan Blue 2 form, while that wasn’t really the case. If that were the case, I think we would’ve seen a significant increase in his powers, and he would’ve been able to fight again Jiren better. I’m not saying that Super Saiyan Blue’s next stage is unreachable, or that it doesn’t exist. I think it will come into play as the story progresses.
However, what Goku’s different appearance was due to Yuya Takahashi’s way of design, and that’s it. We all know that Vegeta is getting a new form, so it is possible that he might be the one to take Super Saiyan Blue beyond its capabilities, and unlock either Super Saiyan Blue 2, or Super Saiyan Blue Perfected state. Either way, we have to wait till Sunday to actually see it.

Dragon Ball Super’s Tournament of Power is at its climax right now, with Universe 11, and Universe 7 fighting it out between them. I think a lot of fans predicted the Tournament of Power’s finalists to be these two. Right now, there are only the strong ones left on each side. All the weak ones have been eliminated, and we have some mouth-watering fights going on right now.
Goku and Vegeta are fighting against Jiren. Freeza is fighting Dyspo. Meanwhile, Gohan and 17 are fighting against Toppo. I’m mainly going to talk about Dragon Ball Super Episode 126 from here onward. Please note that this post contains spoilers. If you’re not okay with reading them, I suggest you don’t continue. However, if you don’t mind being spoiled, then let’s get straight into the discussion.
As you all know Vegeta will be awakening a new power in Dragon Ball Super Episode 123. There have been lots of theories on what the form is, and I think we’ve got it narrowed down to Ultra Instinct, or Perfected Super Saiyan Blue. It’s either one, or the other. However, the interesting thing is the title of Episode 126 of Dragon Ball Super. The title of Episode 125 is “Surpass even the Gods! Vegeta’s Life Risking Blow”.
Now most people think that Vegeta is going to try some kind of attack here. But, apparently that is not the case. According to translator KenXyro, Vegeta’s Life Risking blow is something similar to Kaio-ken. Remember how Goku said he might mess up his body if he used Kaio-ken? It is a similar situation here. So Vegeta is getting another power up in Dragon Ball Super Episode 126.
As the title suggests, he is able to go beyond the level of Gods here. Now, the term Gods could refer to any God. It might even refer to Super Saiyan Blue. But, I think it refers to the Gods of Destruction here.
