The Dragon Ball Super anime left us stunned and with high expectations and a lot of questions regarding a continuation. The Tournament Of Power ended, all the Universes had been restored, Frieza has been revived by the gods themselves, and Jiren has been beaten by Goku. While a lot of people are eagerly waiting for Dragon Ball Super’s return to the big screens, we’re glad to have the related manga.
We’ve seen Goku in the Tournament Of Power achieving unprecedented powers against Jiren and Kefla – the Ultra Instinct is easily Goku’s strongest transformation yet, but it runs out of fuel very fast. Chapter 60 from the manga version for Dragon Ball Super reveals that Goku once again uses the Ultra Instinct technique against another villain, Moro, but it didn’t go too well for our hero.
Ultra Instinct Goku loses against Moro
Moro punches Goku so hard that the superhero loses his Ultra Instinct state. This is a very humiliating thing for Goku, and totally unexpected. By this move, Moro proves himself even stronger than Jiren. Goku was able to fight Jiren and almost defeat him in his Ultra Instinct state. Furthermore, Moro is preparing to absorb all the powers out of Goku, but Android 17 and 18 are ruining the villain’s plan. The two androids can’t hold off Moro too long, as the villain is much stronger. But Vegeta arrives out of nowhere using his new technique: the same Instant Transmission that Goku has been using so many times. Furthermore, the Saiyan Prince seems to have a strong ace up his sleeve for fighting Moro, a secret technique that could give the monster a very hard time. Chapter 60 of the Dragon Ball Super Manga leaves us curious for what’s next after the arrival of Vegeta, as he may be the one who defeats Moro.
But yet another mystery appears: what on Earth is happening to the Ultra Instinct form? Why isn’t Goku finally able to master and maintain it? Why does the form burn out so fast? The chances are low that Moro’s hit could have been far stronger than Goku’s form.
How did Goku achieve the Ultra Instinct form
Goku achieved the transformation while fighting Jiren in the Tournament Of Power. Our hero did it right after he fell into his own Spirit Bomb that he charged for defeating Jiren. While everybody thought that Goku is dead, the mighty Saiyan came back in his own way: much stronger than before. He somehow absorbed the energy of the Spirit Bomb, which triggered the new transformation within him. Not even the gods like Beerus or Champa can’t keep up with the Ultra Instinct form, and Jiren was supposed to be the only mortal stronger than the gods. Goku then became the second. However, while fighting with their maximum powers, Goku with his Ultra Instinct form proved himself stronger than Jiren.
It was a long road before Ultra Instinct
Before achieving the Ultra Instinct form, the Super Saiyan Blue accompanied by the 20x Kaioken technique was Goku’s strongest transformation. He achieved it by intense training with the angel Whis along with Vegeta. The two Saiyans also had been training together in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber.
Before the Super Saiyan Blue era, Goku had his Super Saiyan God form as his strongest. He achieved it with tremendous help from his friends, who practically gave their energy to him. Goku received information from the Eternal Dragon himself for how to become a Super Saiyan God. The purpose of the power boost was to defeat Beerus, the God of Destruction who came to Earth with the goal of destroying it. Surprisingly enough, Beerus wasn’t evil, as he had to destroy the Earth just for maintaining some sort of balance in the Universe. Goku fought Beerus bravely and managed to keep up with the deity during his new Super Saiyan God powers. The Super Saiyan God form was a tremendous increase in power, far beyond the regular Super Saiyan technique.
The Super Saiyan era
The regular Super Saiyan transformation is the most iconic one for the Saiyans, including Goku. However, when Goku became the first fighter to achieve the Super Saiyan transformation during the legendary fight with Frieza from Dragon Ball Z, no other fighter could stand a chance against him. The Super Saiyan transformation with the iconic gold hair was far stronger than the base form of the fighter who was using it. However, further improvements and variations for the Super Saiyan form were made by Vegeta, Trunks, Gohan, and of course: Goku. Trunks had the Ultra Super Saiyan, Gohan had the Super Saiyan 2, Vegeta had the Ascended Super Saiyan, and Goku had the strongest of all: the Super Saiyan 3 form, when his gold hair grew very long and his eyebrows disappeared. Goku also went a long road for becoming a Super Saiyan. He trained on King Kai’s planet, under 100 times normal gravity in the spaceship that drove him to planet Namek, in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber when he was a kid, and more. Goku defeated many powerful villains along the way, as some of them even tried to destroy the Earth: King Piccolo, Piccolo Jr, Nappa, Vegeta, Captain Ginyu, and more.
We’re eagerly waiting to find out if Goku will manage one day to control the Ultra Instinct technique. The Dragon Ball Super anime will return someday to the big screens, and we can’t wait to delight our eyes with it again.
