The final episode of the Dragon Ball Super” animated television series finally aired and it delivered one of the most heart-racing fight scenes in the Tournament of Power. With just 30 seconds left in the tournament, it was a battle for survival between Universe 7 and Universe 11.

As expected, Jiren of the Pride Troopers was one of the few warriors remaining. The others were all from Universe 7, namely Son Goku, Android 17, and Frieza. This week’s episode of the anime revealed a tag team of the most unlikely allies in the Universe Survival Saga.

Jiren’s renewed strength

After Goku's unexpected burnout in last week’s episode, Android 17 comes back from the dead in the finale and joins forces with Frieza to put a stop to Jiren.


Android 17 and Frieza almost succeeded in finally eliminating Jiren, but the latter proved that a warrior from Universe 11 is a force to be reckoned with.

Thanks to some heart-warming encouragement from Toppo, the leader of the Pride Troopers, Jiren was able to get back on his feet and let go all of his issues. With Jiren’s strength renewed, he lashed out a devastating attack at Frieza and Android 17, who held on till the end. However, Goku was able to regain his strength as well at the nick of time, and he was able to save Android 17 and Frieza from getting eliminated from the tournament.

Universe 7’s last stand

Dragon Ball Super revealed one of the most unexpected tandems in the franchise. Frieza agreed to join Universe 7 and even fought side by side with Android 17 against one of the strongest opponents in the Tournament of Power. These two warriors were two of the biggest villains of the "Dragon Ball" franchise, and now they’re helping Goku to save millions of lives.


The anime series also made sure to show some bromance between Goku and Frieza in the finale. The two eventually made up as they reminded each other of their promises. With the fate of 12 universes on their shoulders, Goku, Android 17, and Frieza fought Jiren with everything they got. This finale’s fight can be considered as one of the most iconic bouts.

Frieza and Goku eventually eliminated Jiren by sacrificing themselves, falling off the arena with the Pride Trooper. With Android 17 left alone and declared the winner of the Tournament of Power, he unexpectedly wished the revival of all the erased universes.

Fans already had the gut-feeling this was how things were going to end, however, the anime unexpectedly explained that even the make-a-wish part was a test. The Grand Priest admitted that Zen-Oh has already planned on annihilating even the winning universe if they asked for an unvirtuous and selfish wish.
