Super Dragon Ball Heroes' promotional anime series has shown off fights fans would never be able to see in the official series canon, and the latest episode even brought back Goku's Ultra Instinct Omen state thanks to the help of the Grand Priest.
And with Ultra Instinct's return, Episode 9 of the series also sneaks in a subtle shout out to Ultra Instinct's appearance in Dragon Ball Super. You can check it out below.
As spotted by @MrOppaiSenpai on Twitter, when Goku makes his big return to Super Dragon Ball Heroes in the latest episode his Ultra Instinct use mirrors the way Ultra Instinct was displayed in Dragon Ball Super Episode 115. In that episode, Goku had reached Ultra Instinct for the second time due to fighting the super strong Kefla. He swiftly dodges Kefla's ki blasts with little effort, and it was a big showcase for the state.
In Episode 9, he dodges Oren Vegeta's ki blasts in the same swift, effortless way. He then punches Oren Vegeta with the same effortless motion and knocks Oren out of Vegeta completely. It's a great return for Ultra Instinct in the series especially after the Mastered version appeared a few episodes prior. But now the Grand Priest is here and giving Goku a new edge that fans will want to see develop further.
If you want to catch the series for yourself, Episode 9 of the series is currently live now. It's titled "Goku Revived!! Strongest vs. Strongest Collide" and the synopsis for it reads as such, "Jiren stands before Cumber, who has appeared and run amok in Universe 11. A fearsome battle unfolds between the two. Just then, Goku, whose whereabouts had been unknown, appears alongside the Great Priest."
