Dragon Ball Super's Ultra Instinct debut is one of the most memorable moments of the Tournament of Power and the series overall, and it reached such a height with fans because the form was immediately much different than every other form that's come before. Though the debut of the form in the series' English dub on Toonami has been the center of debate among fans, there's been no doubt over Sean Schemmel's portrayal of the moment.
One of the coolest aspect of Ultra Instinct is how it alters Goku's voice, and one fan made that element even cooler by combining the roars of both Masako Nozawa and Sean Schemmel into one.

@DbsHype shared the above edit to Twitter, and there's a fine balance between Masako Nozawa's vocal performance in the original Japanese language release with Sean Schemmel's performance in the English dub and makes a Goku roar that instantly feels much bigger as a result. This also improves one of the biggest issues of the original English dub version of this moment as when Ultra Instinct Goku fights Jiren, the frame rate of the episode seemed to slow when Goku was throwing punches.
Many of the changes are rooted in translation choices, and are no less or more correct than the English subtitled releases of the series. Though the debut of Ultra Instinct Goku on Toonami was marred with controversy it's still important nonetheless as it marks a major shift in the Tournament of Power. As of the latest episode of the series, Dragon Ball Super's Tournament of Power has now officially crossed its halfway point and now fans will be seeing how the series builds up the fervor toward its end.
It's no spoiler that the Ultra Instinct form will be making an appearance in a future episode of the series, so fans will definitely going to be keeping an eye out each week to see Ultra Instinct in action all over again.
