Fans Weigh In On Jiren's Chances At Winning The Tournament of Power

Dragon Ball Super's Tournament of Power seemed like is was made for Goku and Universe 7 to win. With the danger of being erased on the horizon, it fans didn't really expect Goku to lose.

But now that Dragon Ball Super is officially ending in March, it sort of throws their chances of winning into doubt and now fans are questioning how realistic a win for Jiren and Universe 11 could be.

Reddit user jand999 posed the questions to other fans, and fans are notably mixed about what could happen. Other fans chimed in mentioning how lopsided Universe 7's win rate has been throughout the entire series with user Apatches going as far to say, "Honestly, them winning anything at this rate in Super without outside help would be surprising."

User Anotherguyrighthere has a theory that Jiren will end up like Universe 6's Hit after his bout with Goku, "He could win but end up falling in love with Goku and "forgetting" his wish (like Hit with the Cube) and ending up restoring everyone."

User tambrico takes the idea of Jiren winning one step further and imagines a hilarious world in which he takes over the series, "I'm hoping that Jiren wins the tournament, U7 gets erased at the end of the episode and during the NEP instead of "hey it's me goku" it will be "hey it's me jiren" with jiren narrating."

User JerBear_2008 mentions that the timetable will lead to Universe 7's win instead, "Goku showed that he isnt trying to win just via strength anymore as he almost ringed out Jiren. I dont see him being defeated but either running out of time and losing from least number of fighters or a ring out seems likely. Goku always wins in the end and I dont think they would change that after both he and Vegeta got new forms."

But user CGARcher14 still hols out hope for Universe 7, saying there's still enough time for Goku and Vegeta to reach a new level of power in the Tournament's final six minutes and defeat Jiren, once and for all.

Regardless of how the Tournament of Power ends, surely fans are excitedly waiting to see the outcome.

There is a new Dragon Ball film in the works for 2018. The film will focus on the Saiyans, the "origins of Goku's power," and potentially the story of the very first Super Saiyan God. Not only does it aim to be the best film in the series, original creator Akira Toriyama will be contributing to the film's script and new character designs.
