If there is one thing the Dragon Ball fandom does well, it is cook up theories. Over the years, anime fans have perfected the art of out-guessing shows, and Vegeta just called for all of their attention. The fighter's new power-up has got everyone buzzing, but there is no consensus on its purpose.
However, that doesn't mean fans will not give it their best guess.
Over on Reddit, fans flocked to share their hunches about Vegeta's power. Dragon Ball Super's latest episode saw the fighter unlock a new form after he got his butt handed to him by Jiren. The Pride Trooper was busy with Goku when Vegeta unlocked the shiny power-up, and it is one fans have yet to see. Its base is clearly Super Saiyan Blue, but there is way more to it than that.
If you are caught up with the anime, you will know the power-up alters the base SSB form. Vegeta's hair is more defined, his eyes turn a silver-blue shade, and his spiking aura is filling with sparkles. The power-up also gives Vegeta a massive boost in strength, but the anime has yet to detail (or name) the form.
But, as you can see below, fans have plenty of suggestions where that is concerned:

For now, fans will have to wait and see what Dragon Ball Super has to say about this power-up. The anime's preview for this week promises to see Vegeta take it out for a spin, but fans may not get a good look at the form for a bit. After all, Gohan and Freeza have a score to settle with Dyspo, and the Pride Trooper isn't about to let that attention go to waste.
