Dragon Ball Super is down to about the last five minutes in the Tournament of Power, and things are literally getting more drastic by the minute! Freeza's megalomania proved to nearly be his undoing in the battle against the God of Destruction Toppo, leaving Android 17 facing imminent elimination. However, as you can see above, there's a chance that No. 17 is about to get a big save!

Vegeta will break from his tag-team assault with Goku against Jiren, in order to face Universe 11's new God of Destruction in a final showdown!

This preview will only add fuel to the recent fan speculation about what the synopses for episodes 126 and 127 have been teasing. There's been something of a translation debate about episode 127 in particular, as the title "Entrusting Hope to the Final Barrier!" has been seen as possible reference to either Anndroid 17's energy barrier technique, or the more figurative meaning of Goku being the final contest on the Universe 7 team in a battle against Jiren.

It all depends on how this next pivotal episode shakes out! If Vegeta sacrifices himself against Toppo, then it would be down to Goku and Android 17 to take out either Jiren or the Jiren/Toppo tag team. In that case, the episode 127 title would make a lot of sense on a very literal level. But will Vegeta really die? It would add a major twist to the "Universal Survival" storyline, but would also send a large portion of the fanbase into a rage, as Vegeta-mania has never been higher - especially since the Saiyan Prince just broke his limits and achieved this new transformation.

The next episode of Dragon Ball Super, "Suprass Even A God! Vegeta's Desperate Blow!" will air on Saturday February 4th.

Dragon Ball Super's "Universal Survival" arc is part of the recent simulcast agreement that sites like Crunchyroll and Funimation have scored. DragonBall Super airs on Crunchyroll Saturday evenings at 7:15 p.m. CST. Adult Swim airs the English dub during its Toonami block Saturday evenings at 9:30 p.m, and is now available to stream on FunimationNOW and Amazon Video.
