    Start of ToP
    Berserker Kale > SSJB Goku
    SSJ2 Cauli ~ SSJ2 Goku

    After first UI
    base Goku > SSJ2 Cauli (start of ToP) ~ SSJ2 Goku (start of ToP)
    SSJ2 Goku > LSSJ Kale > Berserker Kale > SSJB Goku (start of ToP)

    After second UI

    SSJB KKx20 Goku can fight with Jiren who uses power above anything sensed previously (includes Kefla and god Toppo)

    In the actual Japanese dialogue Goku, after going SSB against Berserk Kale, says that he'll put in a little more power (than the previously did, which is SSJ2).

    I don't think the SSB Goku that Berserk Kale fought was anywhere near full power.

    Also, do you guys realize the monstrous difference between SSJ2 and SSB? It was displayed even against Jiren in the first encounter. SSJ2 Goku could barely move Jiren's head an inch, while SSB got him to finally start moving and fight Goku.

    Saying that SSJ2 Goku after his first Zenkai is stronger than SSB Goku from the start of the ToP is absolutely ridiculous!

    Proof? It's the Japanese dialogue. You want me to write it down?

    How is the difference between SSJ2 and SSB a mere 16x gap, lol? SSJ3 is 4x SSJ2 and SSG is an immense boost over SSJ3. SSB is even implied to be SSGx50.

    Kale traded blows with SSG Goku multiple times, deflected his energy ball and despite taking a knee to the face didn't have a scratch on her

    SSG Goku >= SSJ2 Kale > Berserk Kale > Blue Goku

    If 113 SSJ2 Goku is > Blue Goku from the start of the ToP then so is Cauli. She was fighting on par with him and gained the upper hand at certain points too. She also dodged a couple of God Goku's attacks

    even if we stupid lowball the difference between ssj3 and ssjg to just 2x, that still puts ssjb at 400 times stronger than ssj2 if we're going with the notion that ssjb = ssjg x 50

    Kale couldn’t do a damn thing against SSJG. She had to use all her might to deflect a one-handed attack from him. Stop your bullshit Weiss.

    @xmysticgohanx You’re reaching cain level of terrible.

    I disagree, Goku was not using his full power as ssj blue. It even says in the official sub that he will let out more power. Later on we see a tired ssg overpowering a more powerful kale. Everyone keeps saying Goku is low on stamina, he is tired etc. Only after Goku goes all out along with Vegeta vs Jiren, it is mentioned by Jiren that his attacks are sharper, then Piccolo explains that the reason Goku n Vegeta r doing well vs Jiren is because they cant coordinate well and that confuses Jiren.

    Goku got stronger when he powered up alongside Vegeta vs Jiren, hence the ' your attacks are sharper' statement from Jiren.

    And dont use how well one does vs Jiren for a short time as a measuring stick. Since it is stated by his kaioshin that Jiren matches his opponent's strength and after that he overpowers them.

    There is no actual statement backing it up tho. The only statement we have is after Goku goes kkx20 and attacks Jiren with Vegeta and Jiren says that their attacks have gotten sharper. Plus Jiren scared the blue out of Goku with a casual punch while showing a smal glimpse of his power.

    Ep 123 seems very familiar to how Blue Goku did vs Jiren in the special, held his own for a bit, then got owned, then used kkx20 and Jiren just flicked him away with his eyes. Based on the showings, ud say blue Goku from the special is stronger than the same kkx20 from the special, lol.

    What im trying to say is, they made it look cool but ultimately, it was just Jiren doing his thing, matching someones PL then overpowering them.

    So when we have a character blatantly doing better in later episodes than in previous ones against a STRONGER opponent, we're to conclude their power remained static unless we're spoon-fed the information?

    It was also said Goku was constantly surpassing his limits and Vegeta added towards the climax of the TOP that Saiyans were constantly doing that(showing himself, Gohan and Kefla in the flashback).

    Dude, Belmod literally states in 123 after Jiren power up that he hasn't used that much power in a long time! That means that 123 Jiren was stronger than even the one seen in 110 against UI Omen Goku, yet Goku wasn't instantly crushed and managed to hold his own for a bit.
    Even a barrage of those machine gun punches couldn't take out a base Goku and then moments later he not only powers back into SSB, but goes SSBKKx20 as well.

    There is a clear increase in power and it is backed up by statements. Even before this episode it's states by Whis several times after Goku unlocked Omen that although out of stamina, he was gradually getting stronger throughout his fights.

    So blue Goku fighting semi decently against a Jiren using more power than he had in a long time means Goku somehow is the same power he was at during the special ?


    Episode 110 Jiren > 1st UIO Goku and he used more power in episode 123, I could argue as much power as 2nd UIO Goku if not more , then later Goku and Vegeta kept pushing him back and frustrating him

    Also Jiren powered up AGAIN in episode 124 and still at the start of 126 was visibly frustrated by Goku and Vegeta and told Toppo to take Vegeta, theres no reason for Jiren to keep powering up if Goku and Vegeta didn’t improve past Goku’s level of kkx20 from the special

    Then you have no grasp of basic understanding. Statements are there to support and explain what happens. Not to make things happen. Feats override statements, not the other way around. Feats aren't "implied logic" either.

    Vegeta and Goku got stronger throughout the tournament. It didn't magically happen the moment Vegeta confirmed it.

    Apparently some posters are dumber than a rock if they believe Goku & Vegeta didn't get any stronger throughout the tournament despite them forcing Jiren to power up numerous times as well as Vegeta himself stating how they surpassed their limits time and time again.

    I guess First Form Frieza from DBZ is also stronger than Jiren since the lizard one-shot a planet with a finger while Jiren never showed any destruction feats that come anywhere close to that.

    They did, as stated by Jiren in ep 124 i think it was, but not to the degree some of you make it out tho. However, u want me to believe Goku got hundreds of times stronger in the ToP without adding UI in the mix?

    And he is still below Beerus? Ridiculous.

    Non-UI Goku is very much still below Beerus, that's obvious.

    Oh, is it so hard to believe? When SSG back in BoG turned out to be just 0,001% of Beerus's power? Or when he gained SSB later which is implied to be SSGx50? Or how about when Goku gained SSBKKx10 and shot up in power again? Or SSBKKx20?

    Between BoG SSG and just U6 arc SSBKKx10 Goku there's already a 500x gap, yet he was still an ant compared to Beerus.

    The only objectively verifiable fact is that he gave them a hard beating. But concerning the reason why he performed well, there is nothing but glorified guess work.

    And yes, exposition and statements don't make things happen. They reveal what and why. It is the difference between "Vegetto's fusion ended, but we don't know why" and "Vegetto's fusion ended because Goku and Vegeta aren't supreme kais".

    I dont care about the number per say. What bugs me is this constant retcon of Beerus' power, Goku got a bit stronger pre u6, then he uses kkx10, still below Beerus, he got stronger in FT arc and has kkkx10, still below Beerus, beginning of ToP he has kkx20, still below Beerus, ep 123, regular blue is above kkx20 blue and still has kkx20 on top of that, still below Beerus, Goku then gets even stronger again and has kkx20 on top and is still below Beerus, he even gets 2 increases in power on omen UI and no mention of surpassing Beerus. Then masters UI, no mentions of surpassing Beerus, but if they have him still below Beerus, then the writing is garbage and ridiculous. I dont mind Beerus being stronger, but they should have a reason, like he secrelty trained or idk did some mind training.

    So i prefer to think he didnt get much gain in power out of MUI, so it makes more sense.

    Sadly that percentage was not stated, infact Beerus used 10% vs Vegeta. Ofc that got changed with each arc. Basically poor writing. All we know is what Whis said, that he never thought Beerus would have to use that much power vs ssg Goku.

    How the hell can it be glorified guesswork when the only explanation available is that they got stronger? If I ran 100m in 10s yesterday and in 9s today under the same conditions, obviously I got faster. Do I need to go the doctor to compare my physiology of yesterday to that today to get a confirmation when it's quite literally the only explanation? Then consider the show you have, Dragon Ball where the main gimmick is the characters consistently getting ridiculously stronger. Something that's been hammered down since the first part of the manga.

    Yes we all agree to that.
