Episode 100

Kuririn has been ringed out, leaving the Universe 7 team with only nine members. Back in Gohan, Piccolo, Tenshinhan, and Muten Roshi’s formation, Roshi takes an optimistic view of things, focusing on the nine team members they still have left. No.17 chews out Kuririn for letting his guard down, while No.18 is annoyed at her husband for losing after spending so much money on training equipment. Kuririn meekly apologizes to his wife, while Champa taunts Beerus that the countdown to U7’s destruction has begun. 

Back in the fight, Vegeta is still having a tough time against Botamo and Magetta, when suddenly Cabba arrives. Cabba quickly takes out two fighters (U10's Murisarm and U3's Nigurissh), then goes Super Saiyan to fight his “master”, saying it’s time for Vegeta to retire! Elsewhere Hit uses his Time-Skip ability to knock U3’s Narirama out of bounds before he can fire off his main cannon, while Kale struggles against U10’s Mechiop. To make matters worse, Kale is caught by Napapa, who holds her up by the head so that Mechiop can use her as a punching bag. Once Kale is knocked unconscious, they lose interest in her and toss her aside, only for Caulifla to swoop in and rescue her. 

Caulifla tells Kale to rest, and vows vengeance on Napapa and Mechiop for what they have down to her protégé. Going Super Saiyan, Caulifla quickly beats Mechiop before getting grabbed by Nappa, who tries to push her out of the arena, but Caulifla flips him out of the arena instead. Caulifla goes back to Kale, who’s woken up, and wonders why she didn’t use her full power. Caulifla reassures Kale that she has faith in her; she can manage if she only puts her mind to it. She tells Kale that they should next go take out “that guy”, indicating Goku, who’s currently fighting Jimizu, the U2 team’s Yardratian. 

Jimizu teleports around, bragging that nobody can lock on to his position, but Caulifla rushes in and kicks him out of the way. She approaches and asks Goku to teach her how to become that weird Super Saiyan form he showed off before, Super Saiyan Blue. However, Goku doubts that she can handle that transformation yet. Determined to show off their stuff, Caulifla tells Kale to transform into Super Saiyan…but Kale can’t manage it at the moment. Instead, Caulifla powers up into an extremely muscular Super Saiyan form. She again tells Kale that she believes in her, and begins battling Super Saiyan Goku. 

However, it doesn’t take long for Goku to gain the upper hand. He explains that Caulifla’s form sacrifices speed for power, and is unsuited for long battles. He powers up into Super Saiyan 2, which he says is the form Caulifla ought to be aiming for. Caulifla recognizes this transformation as the one she managed to do once before, but has had trouble with ever since. She copies Goku and manages to become it once more, impressing Goku, who thinks she might even be able to reach Super Saiyan 3 during this fight. The two Super Saiyan 2s clash, and while Kale assures Caulifla she’ll be transforming any second now, Caulifla only seems interested in continuing her fight with Goku. 

Kale fires a ki blast at Goku to try and help Caulifla out, but Goku just deflects it and tells Kale not to interfere with their fight. Kale asks Caulifla if she’s just getting in the way, and when Caulifla merely looks away without responding, Kale begins to cry. Her anger at Goku for (in her mind) taking Caulifla away from her erupts, and she finally transforms into her giant Super Saiyan form. She attacks Goku, who is impressed by her ki, and Vegeta warns Goku not to be caught off guard. Kale knocks Goku around for a bit, before he finally transforms into Super Saiyan Blue. But even in his Blue form, Goku’s Kamehameha has no effect on Kale, who continues to attack. 

From the sidelines, Gohan is concerned for Goku, while Piccolo realizes Kale can’t control her power. Indeed, Kale soon stops focusing on Goku and begins firing off energy blasts indiscriminately in all directions, knocking Mechiop out of bounds in the process. This assault even causes Goku to revert to his base form, but before Kale can keep going, she is wrapped up in an energy whip by the Prider Trooper Vuon. Despite Vuon boasting that his “Justice Whip” leaves evildoers powerless, Kale quickly breaks out and knocks Vuon out of bounds. With even Toppo impressed by Kale’s power, Jiren decides he’d better act. He fires a single ki blast which envelops Kale and sends her flying, before finally exploding in midair. 

Kale reverts to her base form and falls down unconscious, and Caulifla flies in to rescue her yet again. As Hit and Caulifla fly Kale off to safety, Goku emerges to challenge Jiren…

Episode 101

Off on the sidelines, Caulifla looks over Kale as she wakes up, and tells her how strong she was, but Kale doesn’t remember her rampage at all. Meanwhile, Goku challenges Jiren to battle, but Jiren remains silent. Suddenly Toppo flies up and knocks Goku far away with his “Justice Flash” technique. Toppo tells Jiren he’ll send a team of five Pride Troopers over to defeat Goku. This way, he and Jiren can conserve their stamina for later.

Goku pops up nearby Caulifla and Kale. Caulifla wonders what he’s up to, but he explains that he was sent flying and only ended up here by coincidence. Soon Kahseral and four other Pride Troopers arrive, and Goku guesses from their uniforms that they’re from the same universe as Toppo. Kahseral and his troops introduce themselves: besides Kahseral himself, there is Tupper (a tall, blue man with a beard), Zoiray (a short blue man), Cocotte (a purple woman), and Kettol (a green, goblin-like man). Tupper identifies Kale as the one who defeated the Pride Trooper Vuon, and Kahseral vows to avenge his comrade by defeating all three of them. Though Goku warns Caulifla and Kale to get to safety, Caulifla insists on sticking around to fight these "interesting" opponents, and convinces Kale to do the same.

Elsewhere, Muten Roshi uses his Bankoku-Bikkuri-Sho technique to paralyze U3's The Preecho, though this means Roshi himself is also unable to move so long as he keeps the technique going. Fortunately Tenshinhan arrives and finishes The Preecho off with a Shin-Kikoho, and Gohan and Piccolo aren’t far behind. Their group was separated during Kale’s rampage, and now they had better focus on reuniting the Universe 7 team. Freeza arrives, holding the U10 warrior Murichim by the head. Vegeta follows close behind Freeza, insisting that Murichim is his prey, but Freeza doesn’t care and sends Murichim out of bounds. Now that just leaves No.17, No.18, and Goku.

The Omni-Kings use their godPads to check off the defeated warriors, which are starting to pile up, and the Great Priest notes that the fighters are beginning to tire out now. They wonder where Goku is, and it turns out he is fighting Tupper. Tupper can manipulate his bodyweight, and he climbs onto Goku’s back to see how much Goku can endure. While Tupper holds Goku in place, Zoiray spins his body at high speeds and hits Goku with the resulting tornado attack (his “Justice Spin”).

Meanwhile Caulifla is having a hard time against Kettle’s barrage of ki blasts. Kale is distracted by Caulifla’s plight long enough for Cocotte to imprison her in a “Cocotte Zone”, an alternate dimension she creates (resembling a circular barrier). On the sidelines, Kahseral laughs that perhaps it was overkill to have five Pride Troopers take on three opponents, but he is suddenly sent flying by 17, who has arrived along with 18. Kahseral is surpised that 17 was able to sneak up on him (presumably since 17 lacks ki). 17 and 18 taunt that with them there the battle is now five against five, so Kahseral should have no excuses if the Pride Troopers lose!

Kahseral turns his ki into a pair of blades around his hands (a technique he dubs “Justice Saber”) and attacks the twins, but they dodge. 18 flies off, leaving 17 to block Kahseral's "Justice Bomber" attack with an energy barrier, and goes to rescue Goku from Tupper and Zoiray’s clutches. The two Pride Troopers now team up to perform a “Double Pride Spin”, with Tupper rolling up into a disc which Zoiray throws around with his tornado. However, 18 manages to grab Tupper and hurl him towards the edge of the arena. Though Tupper stops himself right on the edge, the ground beneath him breaks off, taking him with it.

Zoiray escapes and radios Kahseral to inform him of Tupper’s defeat, so Kahseral breaks off his battle with 17 and regroups with his remaining troops. Kahseral’s new strategy is to first eliminate Caulifla and Kale, who he’s certain they can handle. Cocotte creates a dome-shaped "Cocotte Zone Max” around them to prevent any other warriors from interfering (even Goku is unable to teleport inside, since the dome prevents him from sensing the ki of those within). Though Kahseral would normally be ashamed to use such tactics, the situation leaves him no choice. He sends Zoireay to go finish off Kale, but Caulifla shields Kale from attack, vowing to protect her protégé.

As Caulifla is buffeted by Zoiray's attacks, Kale’s anger towards herself causes her to once again transform into a Super Saiyan, though this time she is not as extremely muscular as before. The transformation allows Kale to burst through the Cocotte Zone imprisoning her and stop Zoiray's attack. Caulifla is impressed that Kale can now consciously control her ki without going berserk. However, Kahseral dismisses Kale's transformation as merely a change of hair color, and he fires a “United Justice Stream” attack together with the other Pride Troopers. Kale and Caulifla (now a Super Saiyan as well) fire back with a combined beam attack of their own, and Kale returns to her full-on beefy mode once again to finally break through the Pride Trooper’s max power, sending Kahseral, Kettol, and Zoiray out of bounds.

Cocotte’s max dome is destroyed in the beam struggle, allowing Goku to meet up with Caulifla and Kale again. Caulifla thinks Goku should thank them for defeating three enemies, and explains that Kale was able to control her “ultra-super power” (though Kale quickly reverts to her regular form and falls unconscious). Meanwhile Cocotte is still inside the arena, having retreated to safety inside a smaller Cocotte Zone, but 18 simply picks her up, barrier and all, and tosses her out of bounds. The U11 God of Destruction Vermoud is aghast that five Pride Troopers have been defeated back-to-back; now only four are left! 

The Great Priest notes that the opening stage of the tournament is now over, and the strong remain; the battle will only get more intense from here! Goku allows the exhausted Caulifla and Kale to get away. He realizes they will grow stronger, and wants them to have their real battle then. Caulifla says Goku might regret this, and 18 finds it questionable too, while 17 thinks it’s humane.

But Goku and the others don’t realize they are being watched by a mysterious shadow…

Episode 102

The Omni-Kings use their godPads to review the current state of play, and see that quite a few warriors have already been eliminated. Elsewhere, the U2 warrior Brianne de Chateau tells her comrades Sanka Ku and Su Roas that it’s time they show off their power. As the three stand atop a tall piece of rubble, Brianne first shouts to draw all the other contestants’ attention, then she and her friends introduce themselves and begin their transformation. Beerus mocks their transformation process, but the U2 God of Destruction Helles explains that this is a ceremony demonstrating their fighting spirit.

Suddenly though the transformation is interrupted by a huge explosion. It turns out No.17 attacked the trio since they were leaving themselves wide open. Brianne (now covered in dust) angrily tells 17 that the entire transformation process has meaning, and therefore must not be interrupted. Toppo (a big fan of poses himself) calls 17 rude, and Goku likewise is eager to see the trio’s full power. With Toppo’s approval, they begin their transformation again…all the way from the very beginning, with their self-introductions.

The three complete their transformations this time, with Brianne becoming the rotund Ribrianne, Sanka becoming the bestial Kakunsa, and Su becoming the all-around silly-looking Rozie. Helles brags that regardless of their mortal level, the trio’s “love level” is the highest in all the universes. While Kuririn thinks that they were cuter before the transformation, Whis maintains that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, something true from person to person as well as from universe to universe. 

The trio start off by firing their “Light of Love” technique, which fills the arena with an aroma that makes those who inhale burn with desire. While this technique seems to rob the U10 warriors of their fighting spirit, the stoic U7 team manages to tough it out. Even Muten Roshi seems to be immune, thanks to his training with Puar. Gohan changes strategy and tells his group to leave their current location and go fight on their own. Vegeta mocks the “Light of Love” technique as not being worth the wait, but Ribrianne brags that it was merely a greeting, and that the real fight starts now. 

Super Saiyan Vegeta and Ribrianne trade blows, and before long Vegeta realizes that their transformation wasn’t just for show. Ribrianne rolls up into a ball and charges Vegeta, who prepares to punch her as she approaches, but he ultimately finds her so creepy that he can’t help but dodge out of the way. Instead, Ribrianne runs into the U10 warrior Jirasen (currently squaring off against Piccolo), and sends him flying out of the arena.

Meanwhile, Goku is having a hard time against Rozie, whose “Yacchaina Fist” attacks grow sharper the more times she punches at him. Rozie next fires off a volley of energy blasts, but when Goku tries to parry one, it stops in midair before his fist can make contact, then flies at his face. Helles explains how Rozie’s attacks are as fickle as a maiden’s heart, able to freely switch from gentle to intense. 17 likewise seems to be having a hard time against Kakunsa, who has the instincts of a wild beast. Once she picks a target, Kakunsa will hunt her prey to the very end, and she’s still angry at 17 for interrupting her transformation earlier. 

At home in the “wilderness” of the heavily battered arena, Kakunsa jumps off the various pieces of rubble to continuously attack 17 from multiple angles. Confident in her bestial stamina, Kakunsa’s strategy is to continue attacking 17 until he collapses, then finish him off. When it looks like 17 is about to go down, she closes in for the kill, but is suddenly stopped by 17’s energy barrier. 17 was merely pretending to have weakened; being an android, he’s confident in his stamina as well.

17 sends Kakunsa flying out of the ring, but at the last moment she is caught by the winged U2 warrior Vikal, and knocks 17 back with a counterattack. Kakunsa and Vikal share a special moment together, and the rest of the U2 team is touched by their love and cooperation. 18 offers to lend 17 a hand, but he says he’s got things covered; while he had gotten careless around the “beast warrior” since she reminded him of the animals on his island, he’s determined to fight seriously now. 17 first takes out Vikal, earning Kakunsa’s wrath. Even when Ribrianne steps in to help her, Kakunsa vows to defeat 17 on her own to avenge Vikal.

17 and Kakunsa trade blows once again, and 17 fires off a beam attack which fails to hit her. However, 17’s real reason for firing this beam was to propel himself backwards onto the glowing orb that lights the stadium. Now with a firm footing, he nails Kakunsa with a large beam attack, finally sending her out of bounds. Goku notes that 17 never used a technique like that when they sparred on 17’s island, so 17 really was concealing some of his power back then. 

With Kakunsa officially eliminated from the tournament, Ribrianne is furious at 17 for defeating two of her teammates, and vows revenge. There are still 39 minutes to go in the Tournament of Power!

Episode 103

Ribrianne vows vengeance against No.17 for knocking out Kakunsa, calling him an evil that threatens Universe 2. But 17 doesn’t seem to mind being called “evil”, and says he’ll force Ribrianne from the stage in order to ensure Universe 7’s survival. They begin fighting to see which is stronger, Ribrianne’s love or 17’s wish, and seem to trade blows evenly.

Meanwhile Goku is still fighting against Rozie, who is likewise upset over Kakunsa’s defeat. She fires a barrage of energy balls to fully surround Goku, cutting off all escape routes, but 17 jumps in at the last minute to shield Goku with an energy barrier. 17 offers to help Goku out further, but Goku refuses, so 17 goes back to fighting Ribrianne (who’s mad at 17 for ignoring her). Goku begins his counterattack, having now grown accustomed to Rozie’s fighting style, and has her on the ropes before too long.

Ribrianne steps in between Goku and Rozie to break up their fight and check that Rozie isn’t injured, before the U2 Yardratian Jimeze pops in and teleports the two of them to safety. Goku and 17 go off to find new opponents, leaving Beerus annoyed at Goku’s behavior, but Champa says Beerus has more than Goku to be worried about...and indeed, at that moment Gohan and Piccolo are confronted by Botamo. Gohan elects to fight Botamo on his own, unleashing a flurry of punches that don’t faze him in the least. Piccolo knows Gohan must be aware that Botamo doesn’t take damage or tire out, so he’s curious how he plans to fight him.

Goku stops by to observe Gohan’s fight. He told Gohan about his own battle with Botamo, so he’s sure Gohan has some strategy in mind. Sure enough, though Gohan’s constant stream of punches don’t hurt Botamo, they manage to lift his feet off the ground and slowly push him back towards the edge of the arena. Realizing too late, Champa warns Botamo first to counterattack, then to run away, but Botamo fails at both. Gohan finally sends Botamo flying out of the arena with a Kamehameha, and easily blocks Botamo’s parting shot.

Satisfied, Goku goes off elsewhere, while new challengers appear before Gohan and Piccolo: the U10 warriors Obuni and Rubalt. Obuni has picked Gohan out as a worthy opponent, while Rubalt is itching to fight Piccolo. Both accept the challenge, while elsewhere Jimeze takes out U10’s Jilcol, leaving Obuni and Rubalt as U10’s last two remaining fighters. On the sidelines, Gowasu thinks they should accept their fate, but Rumoosh is still pinning his hopes on Obuni and Rubalt. 

The two pairs of fighters begin to battle, and Obuni is impressed that Gohan can keep up with his movements; he was indeed right to select him as an opponent. However, Obuni starts splitting up into a series of afterimages, and though Gohan can still sense Obuni’s ki, he can’t pin down his position. As Gohan struggles, Gowasu’s mood turns around as he now thinks they have a shot at winning. In the U7 section of the bleachers, Whis explains that Obuni is shifting his internal ki away from his body’s movements, thereby foiling Gohan’s ability to track his position by sensing ki. 

Meanwhile, Piccolo fires a series of energy blasts at Rubalt, and while they seem to miss, in reality they surround him and cut off all escape routes. Piccolo directs these blasts at Rubalt all at once, knocking him unconscious. To finish the job, Piccolo throws Rubalt out of the arena, thus properly eliminating him according to tournament rules. After being teleported to U10’s part of the bleachers, Rubalt apologizes to Gowasu for losing, but by now Gowasu is so certain Obuni is unbeatable that he doesn’t even mind.

Gohan continues to be pummeled by Obuni’s attacks, but he refuses to give up. The next time one of Obuni’s attacks connects, Gohan immediately counterattacks, this time managing to hit Obuni. Beerus and Whis realizes that Gohan is letting himself get hit in order to determine Obuni’s position and successfully counterattack. While effective, this means that Gohan will continue to take damage from Obuni’s attacks. Thankfully though, before too long Gohan’s attacks are hitting more and more, due to Obuni no longer having enough energy left to continue feinting. Gohan finishes off with another Kamehameha, sending Obuni out of bounds.

With that, all of U10’s warriors have been eliminated, and the Great Priest announces that their universe will accordingly be destroyed. Despite this, Gowasu genuinely commends Obuni for putting up a good fight. Gohan sees a locket on the ground, which fell from Obuni’s body as he was sent flying. The locket contains a photo of Obuni with what appear to be his wife and child, and Gohan sighs deeply as he looks at it. As the two Omni-Kings combine forces to annihilate U10, the U10 fighters and gods all vanish, leaving only the angel Cus behind to mourn for Rumoosh. Piccolo calls for Gohan that it’s time for them to go, and after bracing himself Gohan agrees and follows after.

37 minutes remain in the Tournament of Power.

Epiosde 1-4

The Pride Trooper Dyspo introduces himself to Hit, declaring that he’s come to beat Hit’s Time Skip for the sake of his universe. On the side-lines, Caulifla reassures Kale that there’s no need for them to help Hit out; he’s sure to beat the tar out of his opponent. Yet when they square off, Dyspo manages to land a solid blow to Hit’s face. Champa freaks out, but writes it off as a fluke. He notices that Dyspo resembles Beerus, but objects when Vados points out this means Champa looks like him too, claiming that his face is far more “fashionable” than theirs. 

Dyspo is impressed that Hit has still managed to keep his cool after that first attack, but Hit’s confidence displeases him. They go at it again, and Dyspo lands a second attack. Champa is now panicking over Dyspo’s speed, and asks Vados if she could see Dyspo’s attack. While Vados could, it was too fast for the two Omni-Kings, so the Great Priest helpfully explains how their godPads allow them to watch slowed-down replay footage of the match. 

Observing the fight, Toppo brags that Dyspo is battle-hardened to the point that he’s now faster than sound and light. Baffled, to Hit it appears as if Dyspo is using Time Skip against him. But it doesn’t take him long to figure out the truth: Dyspo attacks at incredible speed immediately before he can use his Time Skip. In fact, Dyspo explains that he can momentarily move thousands of times faster than normal, although this still leaves unanswered how he knows exactly when Hit is about to use Time Skip. 

For their next round, Hit doesn’t even try to guard against Dyspo’s attack, which lands the same as before. Now though, Hit has figured out that Dyspo is listening for the sound his muscles make as they tense up before he uses Time Skip. Champa figures they should make lots of noise to drown out the sound of Hit’s muscles, but Vados points out that Dyspo can probably pick out different frequencies to distinguish his target sound from any background noise. 

Hit abandons trying to use Time Skip and engages Dyspo in hand-to-hand combat instead. While it looks like Hit’s getting pummeled, Toppo can tell that he’s actually adjusting to Dyspo’s speed and dodging to avoid any critical damage. This suggests Hit’s letting the attacks land on purpose, which may mean he’s plotting some sort of trap. Toppo therefore orders the Pride Trooper Kunshi to go help Dyspo out, while Jiren continues watching the fight in silence.

As Hit continues to be knocked around by Dyspo, he is at last pushed right up to the edge of the arena. Dyspo closes in for the finishing blow, but passes straight through Hit as if he were a hologram (the same dimension-hopping technique he used in his rematch with Goku), and ends up falling out of the arena himself. Just as it looks like Dyspo is finished, Kunshi steps in and saves him with his energy ropes (being made from his own energy, these don’t violate tournament rules against using weapons).

Dyspo and Kunshi now team up against Hit, but when it looks like he’s had it, Goku joins the fight…in Super Saiyan God form. Using this form means that Goku is faster than in his regular Super Saiyan form, but can still conserve his stamina better than with Super Saiyan Blue. While Hit objects that Dyspo is his prey, Goku is itching to fight someone so strong, and dares Hit to stop him. Goku goes off to fight Dyspo, while Hit is literally roped into fighting Kunshi. 

Though Dyspo moves too fast for Goku to even have time to teleport, Goku soon figures out that he tends to move in a straight line. This means that as long as Goku times things right, he can counter Dyspo by temporarily transforming into Super Saiyan Blue to maximize his power and speed. Meanwhile, Kunshi covers the ground around himself with landmine-like energy ropes to prevent Hit from approaching, but Hit simply attacks Kunshi from afar using the same shockwave-like attack he used against Goku during their rematch.

When Goku and Dyspo’’s fight happens to bring them close to Hit and Kunshi, Hit insists that he and Goku trade partners. Going after Dyspo again, this time Hit manages to successfully attack him by first making the same noise as when he does Time Skip, then using another attack to catch him off-guard. For his part, Goku handles Kunshi by going Super Saiyan Blue and going right over all his landmine ropes, whose explosions fail to harm him. He counters Kunshi’s energy blasts and gets in close to mercilessly attack him.

Hit’s tactics continue to confuse Dyspo, who can now no longer tell if he’s about to use his Time Skip for real or is only pretending. Even this sort of momentary hesitation makes all the difference in so fast a battle. With Dyspo beaten to a pulp, Hit gives him the ultimatum of jumping out of the arena himself or being thrown out. Dyspo refuses to surrender, but Kunshi again saves him from a ring-out. He tells Dyspo to retreat and recover, and plans to cover Dyspo’s escape by taking Hit down with him. However, Hit doesn’t waste much time knocking Kunshi out of the arena.

Now Universe 11 is down to only three warriors, but with two of them being Toppo and Jiren, their Kaioshin isn’t too worried. Dyspo vows vengeance in the name of justice, but Toppo says that they should drop the hero act; here there is no good or evil, only survival. Hit decides to pay back Goku’s help by letting him go without fighting him. Goku is still determined to defeat Dyspo himself, and vows to finally settle the score with Hit if they both can survive to the end of the tournament. 

35 minutes remain in the Tournament of Power.

Epiosde 105 

With many warriors eliminated at this point, the Omni-Kings try to work out how many remain, but soon lose count and settle for “a lot”. On the battlefield, Muten Roshi claims that there are less than half remaining…so it’s probably time to get down to business. The U4 warrior Caway suddenly attacks him with a hammer materialized from her own energy, but he easily dodges and tells her she can’t beat him. It turns out Roshi’s been observing the other fighters since the tournament began, and so has a good grasp of how powerful everyone is and what sort of techniques they use. 

In that case, Caway decides to use her other special technique: the art of seduction. On the sidelines, Kuririn notes that Roshi trained with Puar to control his desires, and so that technique should no longer work on him. While Roshi does seem to lose control for a moment, he snaps back just in time to block Caway’s energy spear. Roshi boasts that his body is now brimming with all the energy he once wasted, and Caway runs out of the arena before he has the chance to ruin her marriage prospects.

Next up is the U4 warrior Darkori, another female fighter. Using her talismans, she can create 76 attacks and 129 illusions, so while Roshi has been observing her fighting style up to now, he still doesn’t know all she’s capable of. Roshi deals with Darkori’s illusions (including phantom flames, an illusionary edge of the arena, and a giant version of Darkori herself) before she manages to pin his shadow to the spot where he’s standing. Now that she’s trapped Roshi in a dark area of the arena, Darkori explains that she comes from a planet where there is hardly any light, so as a result she is invincible in the shadows.

Roshi can see that Darkori is powering up, and reflects that his teammates are powerful but too straightforward, meaning that they sometimes have trouble against trickier opponents. That’s why it’s up to him to handle such opponents himself, so it’s for the best that he be the one to fight Darkori. He produces a small jar and uses the Mafuba to seal Darkori inside it, then tosses it out of bounds. Quitela objects that using an item like that should be against the rules, while Beerus claims that it’s merely an accessory, not a weapon. Besides, Darkori herself used talismans…though these were materialized from her own energy. Finally, the Omni-Kings weigh in and decide to allow Roshi’s use of the jar because it was interesting.

While this marks Roshi’s second victory, Kuririn is worried about the toll using the Mafuba must have taken on his body, though Roshi seems more than fine at the moment. Next up is the U4 warrior Ganos, who’s out to avenge the defeat of his two teammates. He transforms into a more muscular, birdlike form, but Roshi is easily able to dodge him and toss him around. Despite the transformation, Ganos still has the same attack patterns, which allows Roshi to read his movements. Ganos may have the edge when it comes to power and speed, but Roshi has greater experience, and he soon seems to finish Ganos off.

Ganos refuses to give up though, and comes at Roshi again, this time crackling with electricity. Roshi can tell he might be in trouble now, and sure enough, Ganos finally manages to land a blow on him. Quitela explains that thanks to Ganos’ youth and the tense atmosphere of the tournament, he is able to constantly grow stronger. Now the tables have turned, and Roshi is getting knocked around and running out of stamina. Worried that at this rate Ganos will continue to grow stronger until he can give even Goku and the others a hard time, Roshi resolves to take Ganos out here and now.

To that end, Roshi uses the same hypnotic lullaby technique he once used against Goku back at the 21st Tenkaichi Budokai, but Ganos manages to shake off its effects by hitting himself. That technique might have worked on him five minutes ago, but he’s improved since then! Ganos urges Roshi to accept his limits and give up; he may have been a great martial artist once, but his day is done. However, Roshi refuses, saying that Goku and Kuririn taught him to never accept one’s limits and always aim higher. Telling his students to both work and rest well in order to enjoy their lives to the fullest, he knocks Ganos out of the arena with a massive Kamehameha.

While Beerus celebrates Roshi’s third victory, Roshi himself immediately collapses to the ground. Kuririn tries to go to his side, but Shin reminds him that he is not allowed back in the arena. Instead, Goku breaks away from his current opponent (going Super Saiyan Blue in the process) and goes to try and resuscitate Roshi via a series of ki bursts to the chest. When these prove ineffective, Goku lets out a blue light and reverts to his base form. Finally Roshi awakens, wondering where all the cute angels have gone. Everyone is thrilled, but Roshi reminds Goku that the battle isn’t over yet, and has Goku help him to his feet.

34 minutes remain in the Tournament of Powe

Episode 106

Muten Roshi decides to rest for a bit following his battle with Ganos, and tells Goku to go off and fight for him. Meanwhile, Gohan and Piccolo are battling Dr. Rota, the warthog man from Universe 6. Rota announces that he shall teach them why he is called “doctor”, but before he can explain his ability, he is suddenly shot down by a ki attack from afar. Piccolo and Gohan take cover from the shots that follow, which Piccolo deduces are a type of concentrated ki attack similar to his own Makankosappo. 

The two are unable to sense their attacker’s ki, and are hemmed in by the pinpoint accuracy of the shots. The two discuss strategy, unaware that they are being observed by one of many small floating balls, which also serve to reflect the shots. Piccolo decides for them to suppress their ki and relocate to another piece of rubble for cover, but as soon as they move, Piccolo’s arm is shot off. He grows it back and reassures Gohan that he is fine; their first priority is still to locate the sniper. Taking cover, Piccolo stretches his arm out to draw the enemy’s fire, giving Gohan the opportunity to observe the direction the blast comes from. 

Since there is no sufficiently big rubble to use as cover over in the enemy’s direction, Piccolo has Gohan throw a boulder into the air, and blasts it to produce smoke to conceal their approach. On their way over, they discover a floating ball, and wonder if the sniper is using it to track them. Indeed, another shot soon comes their way, and Piccolo smashes the ball. He thinks about how they can still be tracked in this smoke. Is it heat? 

Off in the audience, the Omni-Kings wonder why Gohan and Piccolo have remained in one spot for so long, and the Great Priest explains to them what a “sniper” is. Tenshinhan comes across the unconscious Dr. Rota (he was left alive, since killing him would disqualify the sniper), and warns Goku and Vegeta about the sniper when they show up. Vegeta contemptuously thinks it should be easy to dodge attacks like that, but the sniper’s next shot zooms past his head, narrowly missing him. Vegeta is annoyed at this enemy for attacking without showing himself. 

Meanwhile, Piccolo has now lost both of his arms from the sniper’s attacks. He grows them back, but regenerating so much is taking a toll on his stamina. Still, his only concern is that Gohan is safe, and he has now confirmed that the sniper is tracking them by their body heat. The two start warming up various spots on the surrounding rubble to create multiple heat sources, confusing the sniper. But the sniper responds by firing off a huge number of shots all at once, to draw them out of their hiding place.

Goku, Vegeta, and Tenshinhan observe Gohan and Piccolo as they dodge these numerous shots, and spot what they think is the sniper. In fact, this first enemy (the U2 warrior Prum, who also creates the floating balls) is merely reflecting energy blasts fired by the true sniper (the U2 warrior Hermila), located elsewhere. Vegeta and Goku go off to take out Prum, while Tenshinhan goes to help Gohan and Piccolo. Vegeta and Goku confront Prum, blasting him with a Galick Gun and Kamehameha, but Prum reflects Vegeta’ second blast back at them.

It turns out Prum is simply a decoy. He conducts reconnaissance, but when it comes to attacking he just reflects Hermila’s blasts, meaning Goku and Vegeta should have gone after Hermila first. Vegeta tells Goku to handle Prum, and tries to go take care of Hermila, but Hermila keeps changing position. To track him down, Tenshinhan splits into four people: with all the extra eyes, he can track Hermila down, but splitting his power and speed in four has left him defenseless against Hermila’s blasts. It is now a question of if he can reach Hermila before all of his clones are shot down.

Since ki blasts don’t work on Prum, Vegeta and Goku start throwing rubble at him. Hermila is now too busy dealing with Tenshinhan to fire at Prum, leaving him defenseless. Hermila manages to eliminate all but one of the Tenshinhans, but the remaining one is close enough to nail him with a Shin-Kikoho. Hermila is too wounded to lift his arms up to fire, and seems to surrender. Tenshinhan praises him for putting up a good fight, and prepares to finish him off. 

However, Hermila fires straight down at the ground, causing Tenshinhan to fall out of the arena. This time it is Hermila’s turn to sarcastically praise Tenshinhan, but Tenshinhan’s three clones reappear and drag Hermila down out of the arena with them. Tenshinhan and Hermila are both officially eliminated, and without Hermila’s support, Prum has no way of attacking. Dr. Rota has recovered, and goes after Prum for revenge, once again declaring that he will show why he is called “doctor”. But before he can explain about his ability, Vegeta blasts him and Prum out of the arena.

Though Prum and Hermila have been dealt with, Universe 7 has lost its second team member. Still, Vegeta is unconcerned, saying that he simply needs to take out all the remaining enemies himself. Goku agrees that they will just have to do Kuririn and Tenshinhan’s share of the fighting too.

32 minutes remain in the Tournament of Power.

Epiosde 107

As the Tournament of Power continues, Frost recalls how he struck a deal with Champa to have his crimes absolved if Universe 6 won the tournament. At first Champa refused, since Frost had already humiliated him so much during the Universe 6/7 tournament, but he seemed to change his tune once Frost promised to ensure Universe 7’s defeat. Back in the present, for the sake of his revenge, and for the sake of his business, Frost must prove useful to Universe 6. 

With many warriors now eliminated, the Great Priest helps the Omni-Kings take stock of the situation once more. Currently a total of 36 warriors remain: U2 has six left, U3 has seven, U4 has four, U6 and U7 both have eight (more than any of the other universes), while U11 has only three. Beerus notices that while U4 is supposed to have four warriors remaining, only two are visible in the arena (though Tenshinhan had faintly sensed the presence of the remaining two back when the tournament began). Whis notes that this could be trouble, since U4 is supposed to have many warriors with special abilities.

While U11 would seem to be at a disadvantage with only Jiren, Toppo, and Dyspo left, the U11 gods Vermoud and Kai aren’t worried: it’s quality, not quantity, that’s important! After all, those three are the strongest in their universe, and Jiren and Toppo have still sustained no real damage. Suddenly, the U11 warriors are sneak-attacked by U3’s Maji Kayo. With Maji Kayo’s unusual, liquid-like body, the U3 Kaioshin Ea is sure he’s the perfect fighter to send against Jiren to try and learn more about his strength. 

Dyspo goes after Maji Kayo but seems to struggle, so Jiren steps in. This suits Maji Kayo and Ea’s plans just fine…except Jiren immediately knocks Maji Kayo out of the arena simply by pumping his fist, thus defeating him before he can gather any useful intel. Meanwhile, Frost goes after Muten Roshi, his strategy being to pick off weakened fighters. Goku tries to go to Roshi’s aid, but is stopped by Ribrianne, who still has a bone to pick with him. While Roshi still has some fight left in him, Frost soon gains the upper hand (complaining that it’s difficult for him to hold back enough to not kill his opponents).

Roshi counterattacks with another Mafuba, but unfortunately this time around he misses the jar, leaving Frost free. Frost is amazed that Roshi still had such a technique up his sleeve, and seeing Vegeta nearby, he gets an idea. He fires a volley of finger beams at Roshi, while also firing one off at Vegeta to get his attention. With Roshi’s defeat looking imminent, off on the sidelines Beerus tells Kuririn to get a Senzu ready to keep Roshi from dying. But before Frost can finish Roshi off, Vegeta swoops in and knocks him away. He’s not here to save Roshi though; it’s simply that Frost ticks him off.

Frost claims that he’s gotten weaker since the last tournament (due to always being on the run since then) and warns that another attack from Vegeta might kill him, but Vegeta sees through this attempt to stall for time. Soon thereafter though, Magetta comes crashing in, and proves impervious both to Super Saiyan Vegeta’s Big Bang Attack and his insults (he’s used magma to block up his ears). As Vegeta struggles against Frost and Magetta’s tag team, Frost emphasizes that “normal attacks” won’t work against Magetta, and Roshi takes the bait and decides that another Mafuba is in order.

Frost has been waiting for this though, and he deflects Roshi’s Mafuba over at Vegeta. While Roshi quickly breaks the jar he was going to seal Magetta in, Frost still has the jar Roshi tried to use against him, and he successfully seals Vegeta inside it. Not wanting Vegeta to lose on his account, Roshi uses the last of his strength to fire off a tiny ki blast to try and break the jar. He misses the first time around, but manages to guide the blast back, catching Frost off-guard and freeing Vegeta. 

Now thoroughly angry, Vegeta goes Super Saiyan Blue and blasts off the gunk covering Magetta’s left ear, then insults him. Magetta collapses, but Frost disappears in a puff of smoke before Vegeta can deal with him. Vegeta pushes the now immobilized Magetta out of bounds, and turns his attention to Roshi, who he advises to bow out now and eat some Senzu before he dies. Roshi agrees and willingly drops out of the arena. Once teleported to the bleachers, Kuririn feeds him a Senzu and Beerus (after some customary insults) congratulates him on a job well done.

Elsewhere, Goku and Ribrianne prepare to face off. 30 minutes remain in the Tournament of Power.

Episode 109-110 Episode summery

Goku continues to battle Ribrianne in his base state, but his attacks seem to be no match for the power of her love. In fact, Ribrianne is determined to win the tournament and use the Super Dragon Balls to become a “goddess of love” adored by all the universes. She asks Goku what he wants the Super Dragon Balls for, but he hasn’t quite decided yet: he could use them for Chi Chi’s sake, or for his sons…or to meet someone stronger than anyone he’s ever met before. 

Ribrianne counters that in that case, his wish is already granted: she is that strong person! She absorbs the power of love from her teammates to transform into “Super Ribrianne”. Though physically she looks pretty much the same (except for newly added butterfly wings), Goku can sense incredible power from her. She fires off a barrage of love-based attacks, the last one of which creates a big explosion. Ribrianne declares victory, but Goku (now a Super Saiyan Blue) suddenly swoops in and sends her flying with a kick. 

Ribrianne lands at Jiren’s feet, and from his silent gaze she thinks he might love her. However, she soon grows annoyed at this continued silence, and storms off in a huff. On the sidelines, the gods of Universe 11 decide that the time has come for Jiren to go into action. Vermoud telepathically contacts Jiren, ordering him to take out Goku and ignore any small fries. As Kale, No.18, and co. sense Jiren’s ki shaking the entire World of Void, Toppo likewise tells Jiren to fight to his heart’s content, in order to obtain the Super Dragon Balls and have his wish granted.

Goku and Jiren prepare to finally square off, and as Jiren powers up Beerus is shocked to see so much ki coming from just one single fighter. Goku, back in his base form, fires a Kamehameha off at Jiren, but the force of Jiren’s ki is enough to completely protect him as he remains motionless. Shin wonders why Goku doesn’t become Super Saiyan Blue; is he underestimating Jiren? Kuririn however thinks that Goku is simply testing out both Jiren and himself; he wants to show Jiren what he can do, and draw out Jiren’s full power.

While Goku may be interested in Jiren, Tenshinhan wonders if Jiren has any interest in Goku. But Kuririn says Jiren has in fact been watching Goku this whole time, and probably wants to see all of Goku’s power. Muten Roshi says that they have acknowledged one another as opponents worth powering themselves up for. Meanwhile, Goku continues to attack, going all the way from regular Super Saiyan up to Super Saiyan God, the latter of which merely warrants Jiren raising a hand to block him with.

Seeing that Jiren can’t get serious like this, Goku reverts to base, then finally powers up into Super Saiyan Blue. Vermoud is confident that even with the power of Blue this fight is a pointless struggle, but Kai thinks it is crucial: after all, Jiren defeating Goku’s full power will cause all the other contestants to lose their fighting spirit. Goku will be a sacrifice to show off Jiren’s power! While Marcaritta thinks they had better not get ****y, Vermoud declares that no one, absolutely no one, can beat Jiren. Indeed, despite Goku occasionally even using Kaio-Ken on top of Super Saiyan Blue, Jiren easily knocks him around, before finally grabbing him and blasting him at point-blank range.

Goku gets back up and charges Jiren with Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-Ken, but Jiren stops him seemingly just by glaring at him. In truth, Jiren attacked Goku countless times in an instant, so fast that even Vegeta couldn’t see. Kuririn still hasn’t abandoned hope though, saying that Goku should be able to use Kaio-Ken x20 on top of Super Saiyan Blue. But this fails to cheer Beerus up. As Whis explains, Goku is already using Kaio-Ken x20! Even with Kaio-Ken x20 failing to damage Jiren, Goku still has a trick up his sleeve…the Genki-Dama! 

Goku begins gathering energy from his teammates, though he first reverts to his base state since (as Kuririn tells Tenshinhan) Super Saiyan has some evil mixed in and therefore can’t be used to gather energy. No.17 and 18 are happy to contribute their energy, as is Freeza, despite his unhappy memories of the attack. For some reason Vegeta refuses to donate his energy…though he does stop Ribrianne from attacking Goku while he charges the attack. Goku soon realizes that it will take too long to create the attack, but fortunately Jiren is willing to wait. He’s eager to see Goku’s special attack…then crush it with overwhelming power. That’s his style! 

Goku finally finishes the Genki-Dama and throws it at Jiren, telling Jiren to not regret waiting. But Jiren starts pushing it back! Gohan’s shocked, since Goku should still have a fair amount of stamina left. Goku goes Super Saiyan Blue, then uses Kaio-Ken x10 and x20 all in an effort to push the Genki-Dama onto Jiren, but Jiren holds his ground. Despite Goku’s struggles, Jiren manages to push the Genki-Dama back onto Goku, threatening to envelope him with his own attack…

As Jiren pushes the Genki-Dama back at Goku, the U7 team are shocked to see even their old standby fail against him. Kai and Vermoud are pleased with Jiren: with Goku gone, U7’s morale is sure to collapse. While Goku continues to hold out with all his might with Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-Ken, Jiren only needs to stare at the Genki-Dama to keep it at bay. Clearly he’s got power to spare, and all watching are amazed at his strength. Seeing that Jiren is as strong as a God of Destruction, if not stronger, Whis realizes that the rumors of a universe with just such a mortal were true after all.

Still, Goku continues to try and push the Genki-Dama over to Jiren. Caught between Goku and Jiren forces, the Genki-Dama’s expansion finally reaches its limit. Suddenly it disperses and Goku falls to the ground as a tremendous explosion shakes the arena. Toppo declares Jiren the winner! The Omni-Kings are amazed at first…but they and everyone else soon start to worry about Goku. Not only does he seem to have lost, but there’s no sight of him anywhere, within the ring or out, and nobody can sense his ki. Was he killed in the explosion? And if so, does this mean Jiren is disqualified?

The Great Priest steps in to declare that since Goku was (apparently) killed by his own technique, Jiren will incur no penalty. Though the remaining contestants haven’t lost their fighting spirit, for a whole nobody makes a move. The Great Priest reminds everyone that the tournament’s time limit is not even halfway over, and so they must continue to fight. As Beerus wonders if Goku really is gone, the entire World of Void starts shaking from an intense flow of power. Could it be…?

Yes, Goku’s back, and all sparkly this time! With bright silver pupils, dark silver upturned hair, and a blazing aura to match, it is clear something has happened to him, but what? Though he’s releasing a stupendous amount of heat, his ki seems fearsomely calm. Even Whis has never seen Goku like this before. Jiren attacks Goku, but this time he easily dodges all of his attacks. Gohan can tell that Goku’s movements are totally different from before: not only is he fast, it’s also impossible to tell when he’s going to attack or dodge. Vegeta likewise finds Goku’s new movements unreal.

Toppo and Dyspo step in, but Goku has no trouble tossing them aside and avoiding Toppo’s Justice Flash blasts, causing Tenshinhan to marvel at the speed of his reactions and the accuracy of his movements. Finally, Jiren signals to Toppo to stay out of this. Jiren and Goku begin to battle again, and the two seem evenly matched. While No.17 is still not sure who has the upper hand, he can tell Goku has instantly closed the previously overwhelming power gap between himself and Jiren. Piccolo can tell that even now Goku continues to evolve as he fights, with his attacks against Jiren growing steadily more effective. Watching this unfold, Kai and Vermoud freak out to see someone go toe-to-toe with Jiren. 

The Great Priest and Whis have a hunch as to the identity of Goku’s change, and Beerus thinks the same thing: it’s Ultra Instinct! Hearing this, Champa and the other gods can’t believe that a mortal like Goku could reach a state that even gods struggle with…though his movements seem to confirm this. The Great Priest thinks it is still too early to tell for sure, but this new development is definitely something to keep an eye on (meanwhile, the Omni-Kings seem not to know about Ultra Instinct…and neither does Shin). 

Even if it is Ultra Instinct, Beerus doesn’t understand how this could have happened so suddenly. Whis thinks that the Genki-Dama was the trigger, causing Kuririn to wonder if Goku powered up by absorbing its energy. Tenshinhan points out that the Genki-Dama itself was no use against Jiren, so why would absorbing its power put them on even footing? Whis explains that Goku is indeed using the Genki-Dama’s energy as a temporary power source for his exhausted body, but the key factor is something else. Namely, struggling to overcome the Genki-Dama’s explosion as its power entered into him triggered Goku to crack through the shell of further possibilities hidden inside himself…or at least, that is what Whis thinks.

Goku and Jiren continue to evenly trade blows, but when Goku goes in for the kill, Jiren suddenly blocks his attack. Saiyans certainly are interesting, he says, but Goku seems to truly be at his limit this time. Indeed, the Ultra Instinct seems to have only been temporary: Goku reverts to his regular form and Jiren blasts him away. As he does so, Hit rushes in to attack, but Jiren effortlessly blocks his attack too. As Vados points out, warriors tend to leave themselves wide open when finishing off an opponent, but Jiren doesn’t even have that weakness.

While it looks like Hit and Jiren are about to fight, Vegeta approaches Goku, still flat on his back from Jiren’s attack. Vegeta wants to know what Goku’s new power was, but Goku isn’t too sure himself, and he seems to be out of energy regardless. As Ribrianne approaches Vegeta and Goku’s position, Goku suddenly Goku vanishes, snatched away by Freeza. Aiming a blast at Goku, Freeza is reminded of what happened on Planet Namek…

25 minutes remain in the Tournament of Power.

Episode 111

Freeza has snatched Goku away, and now seems to be aiming a blast at him. Exhausted from his battle with Jiren, Goku no longer has the power to run away, and in their hidden location nobody can see what Freeza’s doing. Freeza fires…and Goku is fine! Freeza has actually shared a little bit of his ki with Goku, thereby enabling him to move once again, just like Goku did with him back on Planet Namek. Now they’re even! Besides, Freeza needs Goku to keep on working for him, since he doesn’t want to take on “that monster” Jiren himself. Before leaving, Freeza tells Goku how the gods up above referred to Goku’s new power as “Ultra Instinct”, and Goku wonders if pulling that off once again will enable him to beat Jiren.

Meanwhile, Hit and Jiren continue to fight. Hit’s Time-Skip doesn’t seem to be much use against Jiren, whose heavy blows he can feel all too well. Jiren asks if Hit seriously intends to defeat him, and Hit says that yes, that’s his job. Watching the fight, Toppo is surprised to see Hit doing so well against Jiren. Hit now starts using the same dimension-moving technique he used during his rematch with Goku, storing up skipped time in order to conceal himself in another dimension, leaving only an illusionary image of himself behind. However, Jiren isn’t fooled by the illusion and still manages to track Hit’s movements, which keeps Hit’s attacks from connecting.

With Jiren able to fully counter Time-Skip, Hit is unable to land a solid blow. Yet despite its ineffectiveness, he continues to use Time-Skip against Jiren. What is he up to? Jiren tells Hit to stop this pointless effort, but Hit maintains that this is his job, and tells Jiren to stay with him until the end. Elsewhere, the U6 Namekians Saonel and Pirina try to sneak attack Goku, but Gohan and Piccolo step in to fight them (the two are surprised to see another Namekian). Vegeta is doing well against Ribrianne, until Rozie steps in to protect her. As the two escape and hide, Ribrianne starts to lose confidence in U2’s chance of victory, but Rozie slaps some sense into her, telling her to remember the power of love. Ribrianne recovers her confidence: “If I can’t believe in love, who can?!” 

Seeing Hit having this much trouble, Caulifla wants to go help him out, but Cabba stops her, saying Hit has some strategy in mind. Though Hit keeps on taking Jiren’s attacks, he’s still properly guarding and so should be minimizing damage, all while waiting for the right chance to strike back. Indeed, Hit has by now memorized Jiren’s attack pattern, and finally manages to land a solid attack on Jiren’s chest, which sends him skidding to the edge of the arena. This one attack is what Hit needed to finally lock Jiren into a time cage, paralyzing him. 

This ace-in-the-hole technique consists of Hit continually using Time-Skip against Jiren alone, but keeping Jiren frozen seems to require too much of Hit’s concentration for him to do much else. He tells Cabba, Caulifla, and Kale to leave Jiren to him and go do the job only they can do, namely defeat other warriors to ensure U6’s victory. While Hit normally works alone, now he’s resolved to use all of his power to keep Jiren frozen until the end, and so needs his allies’ help to handle everything else that must be done.

As Jiren struggles to break free from this paralysis, Hit soon realizes that his power won’t last until the end of the tournament. He therefore has no choice but to put everything he has into one last attack in order to defeat Jiren then and there. Though it’s not like an assassin to gamble, he must take this risk to carry out his job of making sure U6 wins. But as he goes in to finish Jiren off, Jiren blocks his blow with merely a glare, and finally breaks free. Those on the sidelines are amazed to see Jiren’s strength surpass time itself. Jiren recommences attacking Hit, finally knocking him out of the arena with an energy blast. 

The Great Priest confirms Hit’s loss, and Hit materializes in the bleachers next to Champa, admitting that it was all over once his final blow against Jiren failed. While Champa looks on the bright side and says Hit’s work ethic has been passed on to Cabba and co., Vados notes that Hit’s loss is a major setback for U6. As it happens, Hit’s defeat coincides with the halfway point of the tournament (only 50 taks or 24 minutes now remain), so the Great Priest changes the sky green to mark the start of the second half.

With Hit defeated and Goku exhausted, Jiren judges that there is nobody left worth fighting, so he leaves the rest up to Toppo and Dyspo and begins meditating. The U3 warrior Piara distracts Toppo and Dyspo while his colleague Katpesra moves in to take out the seemingly defenseless Jiren, but Katpesra is repelled by the wall of ki surrounding Jiren’s body. The two of them are clearly unworthy of fighting Jiren!

The Tournament of Power is now halfway over.

Episode 112

Jiren has begun meditating after defeating Hit. Beerus wonders how Goku is doing, and Whis says that while he is physically exhausted, his fighting spirit remains undiminished. With the tournament halfway over, the Omni-Kings ask again what happens when time runs out, and the Great Priest explains that the universe with the most members left will win. In that case, Universe 7 is currently in the lead with seven members left, so the U3 God of Destruction Mosco orders his team to eliminate Goku.

As a trio of U3 warriors goes after Goku, Gohan and Piccolo continue to battle the U6 Namekians Saonel and Pilina. Piccolo tells Gohan to go help Goku, but Gohan thinks it’s best to focus on their opponents; they’ll just have to trust Goku to manage on his own. While Saonel and Pilina put up a good fight (even Piccolo is surprised that another universe would have such strong Namekians), Champa orders his team to cut down the U7 team’s numbers but otherwise run away. Since they can’t defeat Jiren, they’ll just have to try to be the team with the most members left at the end.

Elsewhere, Kale is intimidated after witnessing Jiren’s strength, but Caulifla remains optimistic: seeing Goku and Jiren’s battle showed her the infinite potential that she as a Saiyan must possess. Suddenly the two are challenged by U4’s Monna, who is targeting U6 now that they’ve lost Hit. Though Caulifla is eager to take Monna on singlehanded, Cabba arrives and insists that he be the one to fight Monna, so that Caulifla and Kale can escape and conserve their stamina. Caulifla initially refuses, but eventually relents after both Cabba and Kale insist.

Caulifla and Kale escape as Cabba holds off Monna. After struggling in his normal form, Cabba becomes a Super Saiyan and successfully counterattacks. However, this just leads Monna to morph into a giant ball and start knocking Cabba around even harder. Reverting to normal, Cabba is thrown to near the edge of the arena. While Cabba tries to trick Monna into rolling off the arena, this tactic fails and Cabba himself is sent falling out of bounds. While regretting that he couldn’t wear down his opponent’s stamina more, he is at least satisfied that he managed to buy some time for Caulifla and Kale.

However, at the last moment a hand reaches out and grabs Cabba. It’s Vegeta! He roughly tosses Cabba back into the arena and knocks Monna away. Cabba is happy that his “master” saved him, but Vegeta simply knees him in the stomach. He tells Cabba not to misunderstand: he wasn’t really trying to save him, he just couldn’t stand seeing a weak Saiyan. Besides, Vegeta doesn’t want Cabba to lose before fulfilling his promise (from the last tournament) of taking Vegeta to meet the king of Planet Sadala.

Cabba is sad that, since at least one of their universes will be destroyed by the end of this tournament, he can’t possibly keep that promise. But Vegeta vows that if he wins, he’ll use the Super Dragon Balls to resurrect Cabba and co. Thrilled, Cabba likewise vows to resurrect Vegeta and co. if he wins, but Vegeta gets angry: he’ll be the one to win, not Cabba! Finally, Vegeta tells Cabba to fight as a Saiyan, without regrets, then departs. Nearby, Freeza has been eavesdropping on this conversation, and is sickened by the idea of a Saiyan master and disciple relationship.

With his Saiyan pride restored, Cabba takes on Monna again…but it still doesn't go well. Monna calls Cabba weak and threatens to defeat Vegeta next, then Caulifla and Kale. She even calls Vegeta a coward for getting in a cheap hit on her before running off. Angered by these threats and insults, Cabba vows to defeat Monna himself, and transforms into Super Saiyan 2. Cabba uses his newfound strength to blast Monna out of the arena (reverting to base immediately afterwards), leaving U4 with only three fighters remaining. Champa is thrilled at Cabba’s victory, though Vados points out that earlier he had told him to simply run away.

Vegeta is also pleased at Cabba’s victory as he approaches to challenge Jiren. But Toppo appears and insists Vegeta fight him instead. While Vegeta isn’t interested in fighting a second fiddle like Toppo, Toppo shoots back that Vegeta is a second fiddle too. Angered, Vegeta becomes Super Saiyan Blue and begins battling Toppo. Freeza meanwhile approaches Cabba and very politely asks that they fight. Cabba obliges but is quickly overwhelmed. Freeza says he’ll go after Cabba’s fellow Saiyan once he’s defeated him, and this threat towards Caulifla and Kale pushes Cabba to become Super Saiyan 2 once again.

Cabba unleashes a mighty blast against Freeza, and while he feels it hit, when the dust clears Freeza is there in his Golden form, unharmed. He repeatedly blasts Cabba before finally knocking him out of bounds when he refuses to surrender. Reverting to normal, Freeza thinks it a waste to use up so much stamina against a garbage opponent. Materializing in the bleachers, Cabba apologizes to Champa, who’s angry at Freeza for intentionally targeting Cabba when he was exhausted. Thinking to himself, Freeza vows to win the tournament and use the Super Dragon Balls to control the gods.

Vegeta and Goku meet up in the middle of their respective fights. Vegeta sees that the exhausted Goku is struggling against his U3 opponents, and Goku says he’s recovering his stamina as he fights. Goku notes that Cabba has lost, but Vegeta isn’t too concerned: so long as he wins the tournament, the Saiyans will survive! Vegeta goes off to continue his battle against Toppo, and Goku has no choice but to continue his fight against the U3 trio.

Suddenly however, Caulifla swoops in and knocks the U3 fighters out of the way. While Goku thanks her for her help, Caulifla transforms into a Super Saiyan 2. Thanks to Cabba she’s managed to recover her stamina, and now she wants to fight Goku!

23 minutes remain in the Tournament of Power.
