Goku has another new form in Dragon Ball Super

2 min read

Dragon Ball Super (1)

I’m starting to think that Goku may have more power-ups than I have fingers, and my mom drank Uranium while I was in the womb. Going through hair colours like Lady Gaga’s touring wardrobe, Goku’s no stranger to the odd power-up here and there. What began with the Kaio-Ken in Dragon Ball Z quickly evolved to what appeared to be the zenith of that power during the Frieza saga: Super Saiyan.

That form would see several upgrades over the years, going from an Ascended Super Saiyan through to Super Saiyan 3 and GT’s (probably non-canonical) Super Saiyan 4. Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods would introduce Super Saiyan God mode, as well as the more refined and efficient Super Saiyan Blue form. Get ready for another new form then, as Goku now has another trick up his sleeve.

According to Kotaku, Goku’s new form is currently titled “Migatte no Gokui”, or “The Key of Egoism” when translated. It’s official name so far is Ultra Instinct, and it’s a power-up that has been used by both the god of destruction Beerus and his attendant Whis. Essentially allowing a user “react to and counter any threat without having to acknowledge it”. That leaves the brain free to come up with new strategies, while the body adapts to any attack used against it.

Imagine Forza 7 with every assist on then, but with fists. I think, look this is a weird analogy. As for power? It’s stated that Goku’s Ultra Instinct Omen may be more powerful than his previous plateau, which was a combination of Super Saiyan Blue and the Kaio-Ken techniques, dialled up to a magnification of 20.

Currently used against Jiren in Dragon Ball Super, Ultra Instinct didn’t ensure a victory for Goku as he had yet to master the form. Which will probably all change in a few episodes or so. Probably.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • VampyreSquirrel

    Goku in every series… “THIS ISN’T EVEN MY FINAL FORM!”

    • Hammersteyn

      Inorite? So many people have needlessly died because he’s holding back most of the time.

  • For the Emperor!

    Well, Beerus hasn’t actually mastered it yet, so we have that going for Goku. It was a great episode, Goku getting thoroughly outclassed. And then the cherry on the cake is his new transformation also didn’t work right off the bat – that was a great changeup!
    Did anyone notice the change in Vegeta? Normally when Goku gains a new level, he is all weepy/mopey/angry. This time he was just curious…does that mean he is hiding something of his own for a change?

    • Hammersteyn

      I hope so. Vegeta is an important rival. He needs to keep pushing Goku to new levels.

      • For the Emperor!

        Vegeta is actually the guy I root for most between them (glad he got his moment against Freeza, even if Goku did the killing). He wants to be the best, he wants to protect his loved ones. Goku just wants to fight and is reckless in his pursuit of that. He only cares AFTER his loved ones were hurt. Vegeta would make a much better God of Destruction than Kakarot!
        This is for Kakarot:

        • Hammersteyn


        • Same here, favourite character, though that scene where Vegeta had Frieza pissed me off, they should have let him have his revenge

    • Yondaime

      He’s probably hiding something as well. Our prince never reacts calmly to being outclassed by Goku.

  • Hammersteyn

    How in”form”ative.
