The Spirit Bomb is Goku’s last resort for enemies that cannot be defeated by strength alone. It was a one for all – all for one attack that (failed to) destroyed some of the nastiest villains of the Dragon Ball series. It was also an attack that only Goku is able to do among the Z-warriors.
The latest preview of Dragon Ball Super showed Goku’s first bout against Jiren in the Tournament of Power. He was seen using a Spirit Bomb while on his Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken x 20. He made a Spirit Bomb with a considerable size of energy, and Jiren’s not moving at all to avoid the killer technique.
Where will Goku gather the energy needed to throw a spirit bomb that size at the first place? He could not use the help of all the living things of Universe 7 (though I am curious how big of a spirit bomb that would be.) Even the benched baldies cannot help Goku this time because the Universe 7 will be erased immediately if they did.
And because of this new rule of no outside interference, Zeno will not bend his own rule. So Zenos will not lend their energy to Goku. Other participants could be convinced to lend them energy as Jiren is really a threat to their survival. If this is the case, I can see Universe 6 lending a fraction of their energy to Goku immediately. Goku’s teammates can also be the source of the spirit bomb energy. But you can’t really expect Frieza to help because well, he had a taste of that blue floating energy and it was never a good experience.
Or maybe that was all his energy that he accumulated in his whole body. That was all his life energy amplified by the power of Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken x 20. It is worthy to note that he can access and use God ki now, which, I think, makes his soul stronger and his life pool increased. This spirit bomb might be Goku’s full power.
The Spirit Bomb is Goku’s trump card. But I personally think that Jiren will eat up the Spirit Ball easily because he is way more powerful than Goku. If this is not the last time that we will see the spirit bomb in the Tournament of Power, the second time we’ll see it will be during Goku’s last stand against Jiren. This might be the catalyst of Goku’s new limit breaker transformation.

Origin of The Strongest Warrior Jiren The Grey
Jiren got this colossal amount of Ki, according to the spoilers from different outlets. Even Goku’s Super Saiyan Blue x 20 was proven to be ineffective against Jiren’s enormous power. Jiren might be the most powerful opponent that Goku will ever face. He is Universe 11’s ace warrior after all. In this first round of Goku vs Jiren fight, there is no doubt that Jiren will win.
But aside from knowing that this Pride Trooper is very powerful, we have no clue on who Jiren is and what is his past. We don’t even know his real ability, unlike Gok’s other opponent in the past. That’s why there is a big hype about Jiren’s ability because this is the first time that a powerful opponent like Jiren will appear in the Dragon Ball series.
What is Jiren’s past? Where is he from? Is there any other Jiren the Gray out there? What is the source of his power and what is his other abilities? There are just so many things that are still unknown about Jiren. But I am more interested in his origins.
