Could Kefla Defeat Jiren? | Dragon Ball Super

by Jeremy Carden

Obviously, this post will contain spoilers about the results of Dragon Ball Super Episode 116. Make sure you take that into consideration before going any further. 

Now, I am glad that this episode took its time in terms of having the characters describing the amount of power each fighter had. However, I think that Kefla was way too overpowered!

For starters, Whis stated that Super Saiyan Kefla’s power rivaled that of the Universe 7 Spirit Bomb; which Roshi said would have defeated Jiren had it hit its target. This explains how Kefla was able to push Goku far enough for him to reactivate Ultra Instinct.

After she went Super Saiyan 2 against Goku, Piccolo theorized that her power might have even surpassed Goku’s during his first bout with Jiren using Ultra Instinct!

Before charging at Goku, Kefla boasts that she feels like her power could destroy an ENTIRE universe!

It is hard to believe that only a couple of days ago, these female Saiyans did not even know what Super Saiyan was. Now, they have obtained one transformation after another, and Potara on top of that!

Fans have been in an uproar about the Universe 6 Saiyans obtaining all of these transformations with ease, but Universe 7 Saiyans had to go through years of training to obtain their power.

I do not fault Cabba at all because for the two levels of Super Saiyan he has gained, he had to actually work for them! His body was nearly broken and his emotions were pushed to the limits. Even though he is weaker than Kale and Caulifla, I think his characters speaks volumes above the girls.

After becoming enraged over her attacks not hitting Goku, Kefla digs even deeper for more power. Cabba states her power is swelling even larger than before, and Roshi says Goku would lose if he got hit with even one of her attacks at this level.

In the video below, I go into far more detail about Kefla’s power. However, I think that she was written to be too much of a good thing. Yes, it was good to have female Super Saiyans introduced into the franchise, but it was all too much too soon.

It is crazy to think that if she went Super Saiyan 3, her power would have been multiplied by four. However, I think that four would have been the minimum increase because of her bottomless potential! For all we know, she might have obtained some sort of Super Saiyan 3 Berserker transformation! Which I think would have been the trigger to defusing Kefla before the battle could be won.

Remember that Super Saiyan Gotenks could only be utilized for five minutes before Goten and Trunks’ Fusion Dance would split. So, Gotenks had to think carefully before using this form.

Based on the two pictures above, I actually thought that she was going to go Super Saiyan 3 based on her frustration and posture. That hunched positioning of the body is the typical stance for someone about to go Super Saiyan 3!

Considering all of the power that she was using, I was not going to be the least bit surprised had she defused before landing a finishing blow on Goku.

I dare say that she may have been able to surpass even Jiren! That might come across as an unbelievable statement, but look at what the writers have done with her so far.

Overall, I have watched the episode around eight times alright. It literally felt like a Dragon Ball Z episode because the first 8-9 minutes consisted of nothing but Goku and Kelfa powering up while everyone is in awe of their strength!

I was a bit bored in the sense that watching two characters fighting, but one not being able to land a blow can get kind of old. Anyone reading this a Pokemon anime/video game fan?

Don’t you feel that same level of annoyance whenever an opponent uses Double Team, Sand Attack or anything to increase their ability to dodge attacks? It gets so annoying because the battle drags on longer than it should because one Pokemon can’t land an attack at all, and their opponent just attacks whenever it wants to.

One of the worst examples of this was in the Black and White anime (arguably, the worst Pokemon series). It was during the finals of the Jr. Cup World Tournament between Trip’s Serperior and Ash’s Pignite.

During this tournament, Serperior was able to make quick work of every opponent that it was up against. To add insult to injury, this was the only Pokemon that Trip used in the entire tournament. Pignite did everything that it could, but none of its attacks landed.

Serperior was just using its natural speed without the use of a move like Double Team and it was able to move around each attack like it was nothing. Heck, Pignite was spamming Flame Charge to increase its speed, but even that did not work! That resulted in probably one of the worst battles to watch because it was about five minutes of straight attacking and dodging until Serperior won…

I did not feel as upset about watching Goku and Kefla but it was almost getting to that point. However, Goku made up for it with that EPIC Kamehameha to the face! It was so epic that we had to see it THREE times from different angles before Kefla was knocked out of the match.

At least in this episode, we get a twist since Whis points out that even though Goku is handling Kefla with ease, he can’t utilize Ultra Instinct when he attacks because he is still “thinking” of the attack instead of naturally allowing himself to attack. That explains how Kefla as able to get up and dust herself off after each attack.

That is kind of ironic because Kefla’s attacks had the potential to defeat Goku if even one blast landed, but none of Goku’s moves that made contact could finish the job!

Maybe he will be able to master Ultra Instinct before his next match with Jiren.

Do you think Kefla was too overpowered? Do you think she could have defeated Jiren had she obtained Super Saiyan 3? Are you a bit surprised that she did not defuse after exhausting so much power as an enraged Super Saiyan 2?

Will Fusion Lead To Universe 6’s Downfall? | Dragon Ball Super

by Jeremy Carden

1509246421-CV-Dragon-Ball-Super-114-Kale-Caulifla-Fusion

Considering the two female Saiyans from Universe 6 will merge using the Potara Earrings, could this possibly have a negative impact for Champa’s team?

maxresdefault (6)

Even the two Namekians for Universe 6 might fuse as well because Gohan and Piccolo are giving them a run for their money.

In the video below, I go into my full thoughts on the subject.

 

Do you think that Vegeta and Goku will merge as well in this Tournament of Power?

There is no telling if the Grand Priest and the Omni-Kings will allow the fusion because it is merging technique with tools for the gods, but if Zeno thinks it is cool then it might be allowed…

Will the power go to the fused female’s head? I mean they were memorized by Super Saiyan 3, and they might reduce their fusion time.

The next couple of episodes should answer these questions and more! The biggest one being whether or not this new fusion will count as one or two fighters for Team Universe 6! Remember that Champa’s plan for victory has more to do with the number of fighters left by the end of the tournament, but he only has four more left.

Dragon Ball Super: Will Cabba Have a New Super Saiyan Transformation?

By Jeremy Carden

It goes without saying that this Universal Survival Tournament is going to be insane! With 80 fighters in the same arena going at it in a battle royale, I think we are going to see a ton of new techniques and characters.

CcApDYIUkAAhU6O

We are going to be reintroduced to some of the Universe 6 fighters, and Vegeta’s protege from the Universe 6 vs. Universe 7 tournament is going to make his return to the ring.

However, we see that Cabba did not have complete control over the Super Saiyan transformation. Yes, he was able to transform on Vegeta’s command before he got knocked out by a Super Saiyan Blue-powered punch, but Cabba still has a long way to go.

tumblr_inline_oi0bvoHklh1r45iid_540

Considering that the only time we saw him after the tournament was during the baseball game episode, I think we can assume that he has been undergoing some intense training back on his home world.

12919674_980124892043126_8584196076261500822_n

The question is whether or not we will see Cabba reveal that he has either mastered his Super Saiyan power or unlocked a new transformation.

He does not have a tail meaning that we will not see a Great Golden Ape or anything of that level of power. Perhaps he will go Super Saiyan 2 or 3 and considering that a new form (since Goku and Vegeta did not utilize those levels during the matches).

Honestly, I would not be opposed to the young Saiyan using a new form of Super Saiyan that we have not seen before. I think this would be something fresh in terms of the series’ progression.

I know we just had Super Saiyan Rose, but it would be interesting for a Saiyan from another universe to have a Universe 6 exclusive form if you want to call it that.

ddc8b528e1e881deaf5c2b1acf2c77a2b9efb004_hq

Is it possible? I think it is not something that is completely impossible. Remember that the Universe 6 Saiyans evolved to the point that they no longer had tails. Yes, I know the standard Super Saiyan transformation was triggered by rage just like it is in Universe 6 (unless you are Goten and Trunks who transformed almost on instinct).

I go into more detail on my thoughts about Cabba in this video:

Overall, I am excited to see Cabba again. Regardless as to whether or not he gets a new form, I hope he is not easily knocked out of the tournament.

Tearful-Cabba

Do you think Cabba will have a new transformation or technique up his sleeve?
