I’m a nerd.
Sketchy territory as a kid but I’m pretty happy with how it all turned out. Dragon Ball Super has been a highly entertaining return of the Dragon Ball franchise and I’ve enjoyed it thoroughly. I only started watching a few months ago but I’m fully caught up and I probably have YouTube to thank for that. I didn’t know how big the DBZ community was. The amount of content that’s put out on a weekly basis is impressive, with all kinds of reviews, predictions and breakdowns. So I’ve been inspired to make one of my own.
Jiren is a fusion between a Supreme Kai and a God of Destruction from the 13th universe.
This crossed my mind during last week’s episode, with Jiren had some dialogue with Goku and Vegeta. He kinda spoke like a Kai, but a touch of destroyer. Kinda like wise advice from a jerk. There was also a moment where Goku asked Jiren what motivated him, and he said he wanted to know what was beyond strength. If you were a destroyer or a supreme kai who wanted nothing more than to know what was beyond strength, a fusion with your divine counter-part would probably be a good place to start. Then I took a look at all the destroyers and supreme kais to see if anyone had purple skin – check. The kais all looked the same, but the destroyers were all pretty unique. Jiren’s ears and all-black eyes would probably have to come from the destroyer so that still holds up. The fact that fusion was pretty central to the plot line for the Goku Black story line and was then brought back for this season with Kefla, it makes me think that it’ll pop up at least a couple more times before the season is over. Finally, there’s a lot of talk about a new god of destruction. Whis asked Goku, I think Vegeta was asked at some point, and I think there was something about Toppo or Jiren being in the discussion.
Nothing more than a hunch.. but it’s nice to put a hunch out there and see what happens.
