Warning! Spoilers for Dragon Ball Super lie below!
The ‘Universal Survival’ arc is going strong on Dragon Ball Super, and its debut of Ultra Instinct still has fans buzzing. After taking on Jiren, Goku debuted the mysterious power-up only to fall out of the transformation when the Pride Trooper overtook him. Now, Toei Animation has revealed when Ultra Instinct will return, and it will be back before you know it.
Weekly Shonen Jump released its newest issue, and the update is stuffed with new Dragon Ball spoilers. A slew of new episode titles and synopses were shared with fans, and the description of episode 116 confirms it will see Goku go Ultra Instinct once more.
“Through his extreme battle with Kafla, Goku once against utilizes ‘Ultra Instinct,’ a region which even gods cannot easily obtain.”
So, there you have it. In just two more episodes, Dragon Ball Super will unleash Ultra Instinct on the world, and it seems like Kafla will be the one put at its mercy.
So far, Goku has only used Ultra Instinct once before, and that was against Jiren. The Universe 11 fighter pushed Goku into the power-up as the Saiyan could barely land a hit on Jiren. It seems the Pride Trooper’s use of meditation helps him see blows before they are sent, so Goku needed to fight unconsciously to speed up his moves.
Kafla will be the next fighter to witness how strong Ultra Instinct is, and fans are not sure how to feel about the encounter. Caulifla and Kale’s fusion is a powerful one, but there are fans who feel like the character shouldn’t be strong enough to require Goku to go Ultra Instinct. For now, no one knows quite how strong Kafla will be once the fusion gets serious, but fans can expect the character to push back hard against all of Goku’s advances.
