A few days prior to the release of "Dragon Ball Super" Chapter 115, an image was revealed from episode 116 of the popular anime series created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. This image was published by Shonen Jump magazine of the Shūeisha publishing house, usually a reliable source for "Dragon Ball" information.

A few hours ago, an official image of episode 116 was revealed, in which we can confirm the return of the most powerful transformation that exists for Goku up to now, this being Ultra Instinct. Below you can see the image in question.


Official image

As you can see in the image above, Goku is using the Ultra Instinct state that the fandom has been clamoring to see again in the Tournament of Power. The image is not very relevant since it is simply a still shot of Goku. Most likely this image will appear in higher quality at the end of episode 115 when the preview for episode 116 is revealed. In the past, these images have wound up being in those previews.


Episode 116 will be centered on the ongoing battle between Ultra Instinct Goku and Kefla of Universe 6. The fusion of Kale and Caulifla will corner Super Saiyan Blue Goku, triggering him to once again ascend to this state, which even the Gods of Destruction cannot completely master.

This could draw the attention of Jiren during his meditation by feeling the overwhelming power emanating from Goku when he is using this state. However, we believe that Jiren will not interrupt his meditation because, after his fight with Kefla, Goku will revert from his Ultra Instinct state to his base form again due to exhaustion.


After losing the power of the Ultra Instinct, Goku will be weak and at the mercy of Ribrianne and the other remaining Universe 2 competitors. The warriors of this universe will try to eliminate Goku from the platform, although they will not succeed due to the intervention of Android 17 and 18, defending Goku from the treacherous attack.

A universe erased

It has been confirmed that in an upcoming chapter we will see a new universe defeated and erased. However, it has not been confirmed which universe it will be, although we believe that Universe 2 is condemned to be eliminated for several reasons.

One of the reasons is Ribrianne and how her character is generally disliked by the fans, which could be a point in favor of her elimination from the Tournament of Power. Another reason is that Android 17 and 18 will defend Goku from her attacks, and this leads us to believe that she could face elimination then.
