2018 is a helluva year for Goku, Vegeta, and the others in Dragon Ball Super. Tournament of Power ended with Jiren claiming the spot as Goku’s greatest opponent yet. Dragon Ball Super Broly is expected to replace Jiren’s spot as the big guy by putting Broly back again in the spotlight. Before Dragon Ball Super Broly reached the theaters, Super Dragon Ball Heroes’ promotional video introduced the Evil Saiyan Kanba. The most important question right now is: who is the most powerful among these three?
Jiren, Broly, And Kanba: The Most Powerful Opponent
This article will try to compare Goku and Vegeta’s three major opponents. Since the common thing that these three opponents encountered are the transformations. That’s why I will try to compare their lethality based on how Goku and Vegeta’s transformations did against each of them. Let’s start with Universe 11’s most powerful mortal: Jiren.
Jiren fought Goku and Vegeta and it happened during the Tournament of Power. He is the supposed to be God of Destruction candidate, but he refused the offer and decided to be a member of the Pride Troopers. The highest transformation that was able to give him trouble (before Mastered Ultra Instinct) was Goku’s Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken x 20 and Vegeta’s Super Saiyan Blue Evolution.
The next one is Broly, who is expected to fight both of the Earth Saiyans in the upcoming movie this December 14. But based on what we saw in the Dragon Ball Super: Broly trailers, Goku was sporting his Super Saiyan Blue while Broly is just getting started with his Legendary Super Saiyan form. Vegeta’s Super Saiyan form is seen having a hard time in Broly’s base form.
Last but not the least is Dragon Ball Heroes’ Kanba, the Evil Saiyan. Goku’s Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken x 20 was never enough to even hurt him in his Super Saiyan 3 form. The only one who can touch him was Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken Vegito. Although it is worthy to note that he is the only one who fought Goku and Vegeta’s fusion entity and that he is a character from Dragon Ball Heroes.
Based on what happened in the past fights, Jiren might be stronger than Broly because Goku can hurt Broly in SSB while he can’t even touch Jiren back then using SSBxK20. However, it is worthy to note that after the Tournament of Power, Goku and Vegeta is now powerful than before because they have been training with Whis and Beerus. Kanba should be stronger than both Jiren and Broly because he fought a fusion entity (which is stronger than the usual Goku and Vegeta), but his power is not conventional and might not be a valid one in the canon.
