Chapter 1: Dire Consequences

Tournament of Power… Age 780…

The entire World of Void was being shaken apart. The infinite 3-Dimensional area where there was no time or space. It was the perfect place to hold the Tournament of Power. A Universal Martial Arts Tournament where 8 universes fight with teams of 10 each, against each other. The rules were simple. You eliminate a member of a team, by throwing them over the fighting stage. Once all 10 members of a universe were eliminated, the respective universe was completely erased by Zeno, the Omni-King. This was done because Zeno noticed that 8 universes had extremely low Mortal Levels compared to the 4 highest universes. So in order to get rid of the bad universes, he decided it was best to destroy all of the universes except one who will be the sole surviving universe.

It truly was a war for survival.

It was currently the final 2 minutes of the Tournament of Power. The last two remaining universes that were left were Universe 7 and Universe 11. The last two competitors left in the Tournament of Power were Jiren The Gray, and the Super Saiyan Son Goku.

Ever since Goku had heard of Jiren's unbelievable strength from Toppo, the Saiyan raised from Earth couldn't wait to face the strongest Pride Trooper himself in the Tournament of Power. And when he had the chance, Goku, of course, like always, started off with his base form and then increased his Power Levels until he got to Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken X20. He was able to land some hits in, but nonetheless, he got completely decimated. Goku almost couldn't believe it. Jiren was the strongest and toughest opponent he had ever faced. He was even stronger than Lord Beerus!

Goku, with no other options left, only had one thing left up his sleeve. The Genki Dama! He gathered the energy from all of the members in Universe 7 (minus Vegeta of course) and threw it straight at Jiren. But it proved to be futile since Jiren simply blinked the Genki Dama away like it was nothing. Goku was shocked but he didn't have enough time to freak out at Jiren's amazing feat due to the fact the resulting explosion of the Genki Dama directly landed on Goku. There was a huge boom and when the smoke cleared, Goku was nowhere to be found.

At first, everybody thought he was dead. But then Beerus was calm and simply said, "He's coming."

After the Hakaishin said that, Goku rose from the rubble and opened his eyes to reveal silver orbs…

He had unlocked the Migatte no Gokui... The key of egoism. It was the Mastery of Self-Movement and the Secret of Selfishness. Also known as… Ultra Instinct.

Even though it was only the omen, the Hakaishins and other deities were still dumbfounded. How could a mortal attain such a state that even gods could not easily master? It was unheard of. Blasphemy. It should not be possible. But like always, Son Goku was able to make the impossible possible.

Then after Vegeta was eliminated, Goku was able to break through his limits and attain the omen of Ultra Instinct once again. But the Pride Trooper, Jiren, was still giving him trouble. While Goku was in the omen state, he could only dodge without thinking, but he still could not attack naturally without thinking. This, of course, gave Jiren the advantage, as if Goku couldn't do any damage to him, then he only had to wait until his time with Omen ran out and then immediately eliminate him.

But then, something spectacular happened. Goku was able to figure out the secret of Ultra Instinct. And as Jiren was backing him up into a corner, Goku yelled out an almost deafening battle roar as he outputted all of the energy he had in his body. He broke his limits once again. His hair turned silver along with his eyes. He had a mixed silver and blue liquid aura that just screamed out Godliness. He had done it! He achieved the true form of Migatte no Gokui. He had Mastered Ultra Instinct.

He could now dodge and attack without thinking and simultaneously. There was no need for him to plan his movements. It all just came naturally to him. He had done it. He had Mastered a technique that not even the Hakaishins were able to do. And now he could win the tournament and save his universe.

At first, he was completely dominating Jiren, but of course, the Pride Trooper was not going down without a fight. So he unlocked his Hidden Power and gained an even more crimson and passionate aura. Jiren was now actually giving a challenge to Mastered Ultra Instinct Goku. Jiren managed to hold his own against the now Limit-Breaking Saiyan God but Goku was still not going to give him the victory. He had his friends and family counting on him so he was not about to give up!

He was low on stamina… but still! After hearing the cries of Krillin and the others, it gave him all of the motivation he needed to get back up.

Jiren couldn't believe what he was seeing, "Impossible! You shouldn't have any more stamina!"

Goku stared at him as his Godly silver and blue aura swirled around his frame, "Jiren, it ain't over yet."

Jiren grit his teeth, "How?! How can you still stand after being beaten so many times, Son Goku?!"

"No. 17 and Vegeta… and everyone else is trustin' me. I swear on that faith I can never back down now!" Goku powered up as his Godly white aura became even more potent.

"Such a thing is meaningless before my power!" Jiren shouted.

Right as he said that both Jiren and Goku jumped towards each other and began to brawl once again. Jiren aimed a punch, but Goku effortlessly dodged it.

"I'll show you that it ain't meaningless!"


"Son Goku's speed has increased even more!" The Kaioshin of Universe 11 said nervously when he saw Goku weaving Jiren's attacks like they were nothing.

Belmod, the Hakaishin of Universe 11, stood up in a fit of anger and shouted, "Impossible! How can that be?!"

"You can't even figure that out?"

Belmod and the Universe 11 Kaioshin looked towards where the voice was coming from and realized it was Piccolo who spoke.

"Goku isn't fighting only for himself. It's because he's bearing our hopes too."

"Piccolo's right." Muten Roshi, Goku's old Master, suddenly said. "Goku has people who help raise each other up. Not only do we all treasure each other greatly, but our existence also gives Goku strength. I'm sure he doesn't believe, even for a moment, that he came this far by himself."

Krillin nodded in agreement, "It's because of Goku that all of us are here now. When we first met, some of us fought or were enemies, but here we all are, trusting Goku."

"Even when fighting, he has a way of drawing in those around him. That's just the sort of person Goku is." Tien added, reminiscing of how he and the others met Son Goku for the first time.

"Exactly," Beerus said, as he too couldn't deny the fact that Goku has certainly changed him for the better as well.

"Father! You're the greatest! Win this for us!"

Vegeta smirked, "You hear that, Kakarot?! We're all counting on you! Your failure will be unacceptable. Show Jiren, what you showed me when we first fought! Teach him what True Power really is! Now, go and beat Jiren for us! Do it in the honor of our Saiyan Race!"

As Goku heard the encouraging words of his Rival, he couldn't help but smile. Vegeta and many others have changed so much throughout the years that it's unfathomable. To think that the same Prideful Prince of all Saiyans would be cheering on a low-class warrior to prove the honor of the Saiyan Race. How ironic.

Goku powered up, "No problem, old friend! I'm going to win this for you and everybody else!"

Goku clashed with Jiren once more. They kept on trading blows before Jiren kicked Goku down and sped towards him with momentum. The Silver Haired Saiyan God easily landed on his feet and evaded Jiren's attack. Goku then outstretched his hand and gathered Ki in it. He sent out a pulse of fierce wind that was condensed into a single point. This sent Jiren flying to the other side, but the Pride Trooper was still on his feet and fired a barrage of crimson Ki blasts towards Goku.

Goku dodged these blasts like the Martial Arts Master he is and flew to Jiren at a speed far surpassing that of light and punched him square in the chest. This made Jiren get stuck to a wall as the force of the punch was too much for even the strongest Pride Trooper to tank.

Goku gazed at his strongest enemy with a determined look in his Silver irises.

"This is our power, Jiren!"

Jiren grit his teeth in utter frustration, "Who cares about friendship?! Who cares about trust?! To accept that would be to deny everything that I've ever been. I won't believe in such power. Such a thing… "

Jiren's left hand ignited as violent crimson energy began to empower it. He then crushed the wall he was trapped in using his beyond Godly Ki.

" easily erased!"

Jiren fired a full powered energy blast towards the stands where Universe 7 was sitting… with intent to kill!

Everybody sitting in the stands just looked on at shock with their mouths agape. They couldn't react to their impending doom due to the pure shock they were in. That blast was strong enough to surely vaporize all of the Universe 7 members and even some of the Hakaishins sitting beside them.

But before the blast could make contact, it was effortlessly knocked away by none other than Son Goku…

"You… "

Goku's eyes were shadowed. He was shaking uncontrollably in pure wrath. This fool just intended to wipe out his comrades.

"The power you believe in is easily erased. Just like that!" Jiren shouted as everybody watching were baffled at the audacity of the strongest Pride Trooper.

Goku grit his teeth. He balled his fists as his Mastered Ultra Instinct aura began to transform into a fiery white.

"I don't think I'm a Hero of Justice or anything. I never perceived myself as such. But… those who'd hurt my friends, family, or anybody precious to me…."

Goku lifted his head and shouted at the top of his lungs,


The liquid Silvery blue aura of Mastered Ultra Instinct transformed to a white hot inferno of fury. Goku's Power Level exponentially shot up. His presence alone made the entire dimension they were all in shake uncontrollably. All of the gods couldn't believe it. The white hot flames of Goku's aura had heat that made even the Angels sweat. The Gods of Destruction shook in fear. They knew that once Goku Mastered Ultra Instinct, he had surpassed each and every last one of them… but this heat…. It was enough to give them nightmares. They were relieved that the Saiyan known as Kakarot was on the side of Justice. Even if all 12 of the Hakaishins fought him at once…. They would all get demolished at the hands of this now enraged Silver Haired Saiyan God.

"W-What is this HEAT! It feels like my skin is burning just from the sensation of Goku's Ki!" Tien shouted as the others also had the same thought process.

"N-No way! This can't be happening! Impossible! How can a single mortal have so much raw power that it makes us look like specks of dust!?" Belmod said as he definitely did not see something like this coming. He never for a second thought there could be another warrior in another universe that could rival, much less surpass Jiren's Ki and aura. To see Son Goku do so right in front of his eyes… It was enough to really humble the deity.

"Father! Calm down or you will burn us all to death!" Gohan yelled to his Father but it completely fell on deaf ears as Goku's Power just kept on multiplying more than Kaioken could ever dream of doing.

"WHIS! What in the hell is going on with Goku!? His power makes mine pale in comparison. Even if all us Hakaishins went all out and combined our powers, we would get burned to bits! What is this raw strength!? This doesn't look anything like Ultra Instinct? If anything, this would be the exact opposite!" Beerus cried out in fear as he did not want to be on Goku's bad side when he was in this shocking state of power.

Whis was visibly sweating as he too was dumbfounded by Goku's outburst, "My Lord…. It seems as though seeing Jiren almost kill Goku-san's comrades has awakened the Righteous Fury hidden deep within his heart. The fires of Goku-san's temper have flared. And his rage now burns with the heat of a mighty inferno. The flames of Mastered Ultra Instinct augment his anger and now the heat of his energy has expanded to the point where it knows no boundaries. Ultra Instinct not only has made it so that his body can defend and attack for him without needing to think about his movements. But it also made his body instinctively adapt to a whole new level that otherwise wouldn't be possible without it. Well, at least it shouldn't be possible for a mortal like him. This power was thought to be exclusive to only deities. But it seems as though Goku-san's Saiyan instincts have broken that rule. This is his true Limit-Breaking power."

Whis, although still sweating from the pure heat from Goku's Righteous Fury, couldn't help but give him a proud smile. A smile that only a Master can give to his student when the student had exceeded and shattered every expectation placed upon him.

"Just like you said earlier, my Lord. This mortal is truly something else. What a guy, huh?"

"But to have such a high amount of power and Fury, but still be able to maintain the Mastered Ultra Instinct state? Especially for a Saiyan mortal? It's unheard of. To be able to control such a grand shock to his emotions and use that emotion to his advantage to unlock a whole new realm of power and potential that he should not have access to… this is concerning."

The Great Priest, father to all of the Angels, observed the Silver Haired Saiyan as intently as possible. He was getting a bad feeling from this. Mortals should not be able to even perceive such a level of strength. Jiren is one thing, but for a Saiyan to use the technique of the Angels, and use it in his own way, even knowing the fierce limitations, and forcing it to adapt his body to heights of power that can make his own children sweat? To master the Angelic technique in less than 48 minutes when it can take some deities eons to even learn it? Perpestrous.

Whis raised an eyebrow, "What do you mean, Oto-san? What are you concerned about?"

The Grand Priest took a moment to think before responding to his son.

"Whis… you were the one who trained Son Goku, did you not?"

Whis nodded, "Yes, sir, I indeed did train Goku-san. However, to be fair, I was not his first Master."

"Really? Do you happen to know who was the Saiyan Warrior's First Master?"

Whis nodded. He wondered why his father was all of a sudden so interested in Goku's Martial Arts history. Knowing him, there is a purpose behind his question.

Whis turned to the Turtle Hermit, "You were the first to teach Goku-san, Martial Arts, right, Roshi-san?"

The Great Priest directed his attention to the Invincible Old Master.

Roshi, upon hearing his name, immediately stood up and bowed to the Father of the Angels.

"I did in fact teach Goku the way of Budō, all those years ago, when he was just a lad. However, I was not the boy's first Martial Arts Master. The credit for that goes to Son Gohan. He was Goku's adoptive grandfather. He was the one who found Goku when he crash landed on Earth from his home planet Vegeta. Son Gohan taught him manners and Goku's Earthly Nature. I believe if it were not for Gohan's teachings at that age, Goku would not have become the Martial Artist he is today. The reason why he has a Pure Heart is due to the teachings he received from Gohan. I simply taught him the advanced arts of Budō. But if it wasn't for what he already learned under Gohan, then I probably wouldn't have even taken him as my student, to be quite honest with you."

"Hmm…" The Great Priest was now in even deeper thought after what Roshi told him. If what he said was true, then Goku just became even more interesting to the Grand Priest. A Saiyan warrior with enough raw power to shatter a God of Destruction, and yet his heart is Pure? And it's all due to the teachings he received from a mortal named Son Gohan?

"How very peculiar."

"Hold up, Master Roshi! Didn't you also teach Goku's grandpa as well? Wasn't he your number 1 student before you taught Goku?" Krillin, Goku's best friend, asked his former Master.

"Why, yes he was. Knowing that, I guess you can say that even today, now in the battle for our very existence, Goku is carrying the teachings of the Kame school on his shoulders!" Roshi laughed, which caused the others to begin laughing as well.

'The teachings of the Kame school huh? And the teachings of an Angel, along with the Pure Heart of a Saiyan Warrior? Is that the secret to Goku's power?'

The Great Priest's thoughts were interrupted by the voice of one of his daughters.

"Oh hohoho, this Son Goku… his heat. While terrifying, it is at the same time, very exciting! There's never been a mortal like him before, and there may not ever be a mortal like him, after. After the tournament, I'm going to train him as well. It isn't fair for Whis to keep the Saiyan Prodigy to himself." Vados, the Angel of the 6th Universe, exclaimed with a small but noticeable blush on her face. While Goku's heat was making the Angel sweat, just like her brother, there was a sense of excitement that his heat was making her feel that no other man, mortal, or god, made her feel.

"Hey no fair! Who said you get to be the one to train him right after the tournament? As the oldest and the fairest, I believe that privilege should go to me. Besides, Goku would want a Master that's more experienced in Martial Arts." Kusu, the Angel of Universe 10, and the oldest of the Angels yelled at her younger sister. She was also sweating and blushing from the enormous temperature from Goku's ki. Just like her sibling, Goku's energy was making her feel something that no other being had ever made her feel before. Kusu is an anomaly among the Angels, given that she openly cared for her Universe and was the only Angel to show sadness after Universe 10 was erased. Seeing Goku care so much for his friends and universe made her glad that a mortal with such love, power, and compassion exists. Naturally, after the tournament, she would want to train him herself.

"You are definitely the oldest, but you act the youngest. And fairest? Please, sister, don't make me laugh. We all know who among us that title goes to."

Marcarita, the Angel of Universe 11, one of the two only universes remaining, spoke up after her sisters. Just like her sisters, Goku's White Hot Ki had awakened unfamiliar feelings within the deity. Something that she knows she isn't supposed to feel for a mere mortal. But in her mind, Son Goku has proven that he is no mere mortal. There is reason why her younger brother Whis decided to train him. And in the short and limited timespan that he has had in his mortal life, he managed to not only achieve, but Master the technique of her own species. A feat that surely deserves attention and praise.

Marcarita couldn't help but lick her lips as sweat drenched down from her forehead as she embraced Goku's heat.

"Since my Universe has made it much farther than either of yours, and due to our relatively higher Mortal Level, I believe the right to training the Saiyan should go to me, with all due respect."

"Oh my… " Whis could only chuckle at the antics of his family. Not only has Goku had an effect on Beerus, but the Angels as well? Is there no limit to this Saiyan's power and influence?

'Such a strange and powerful one, you are, huh? Goku-san?'

"MARCARITA?! We're trying to win a tournament for our survival here and you're arguing with your sisters about which of you will get their hands on Goku first?" Belmod shouted to his attendant.

The Angel looked at him with a stoic and neutral expression, "Yeah, what of it? He's hot."

"Well, let's be glad that Chichi isn't here…" Krillin said sheepishly as shuddered at the thought of what would happen if Goku's wife was here to listen to how the female Angels were talking about Goku.

"Goku, you have achieved Heaven, my boy!" Roshi exclaimed as he got a nosebleed, imagining the three female Angels fighting over Goku in bikinis.

Krillin rolled his eyes, "You sure do have an imagination, old man."

The Great Priest observed the chatter between his daughters. He then looked back at Goku. He was now even more interested in the Saiyan. How could his mere heat affect the Angels?

'Is he… is he surpassing his limits even more to the point where he could rival even us Angels? No, that sounds like a joke. But… '

The Great Priest spoke up for all to hear.

"Let us see if Goku's mortal body can withstand the limit breaking power of the gods!"

"Kakarot, so this is your true power…. Go beat Jiren! Make our Fathers and Saiyan Brethren proud!" Vegeta yelled.

Goku immediately flew towards Jiren at speeds never seen before and landed a sucker punch that completely knocked the Pride Trooper off of his feet. Goku was now exponentially stronger than what he was before. The power increase from Mastered Ultra Instinct has given him more power than even fusion could ever hope to achieve. Goku stared at Jiren with a face that was the absolute epitome of Fury and Wrath. His current state of Rage was comparable to when he first transformed to a Super Saiyan on Planet Namek.

'Such…emotion.. And yet…' The Great Priest kept thinking about how what he was witnessing was even feasible.

Jiren slowly recovered from Goku's rage induced punch and stared at him with wide eyes.

"What in the blazes was that?! Your power is on a whole different level than before!" Jiren then rushed Goku, but Goku easily countered and threw him up. Jiren powered up and fired crimson Ki blasts. Goku dodged the high speed blasts and met Jiren with a clash of fists. They then began to fly and fight all over the arena as all the spectators could see was a Crimson and White hot aura battling for dominance as the two strongest Mortals in all of the Universes blew even Zeno away.

Each time they clashed, it had enough force to destroy whole macro verses as cracks began to form in the World of Void. Even the Great Priest was shocked as the World of Void was supposed to be infinite, so how were these two Mortals making cracks in an infinite realm?

Truly this is the Greatest Showdown of all Time! The Ultimate Survival Battle!

"What's happening?! It's like the World of Void is breaking apart!" Tien exclaimed

"To think that their battle would reach this level. The World of Void was specifically picked as the fighting arena to prevent this very event from happening." The Great Priest's words put everyone at an unease.

"Wow! Goku and Jiren are so cool! They're punches are so strong that they could even destroy the World of Void!" The two Omni-Kings shouted in glee. The spectacle of the Tournament of Power had far exceeded their expectations as well.

Jiren fired even more blasts but Goku tanked it all as his White Hot aura completely disintegrated all of the Pride Trooper's attacks to dust.

Jiren widened his eyes but continued his onslaught on the Silver Haired Saiyan God. Goku dodged all of the punches and sidestepped to the left and landed a massive uppercut to the strongest fighter of Universe 11.

Goku then cupped his hands in a familiar position. White energy began to form in his hands as he charged up an insurmountable amount of pure raw power.

"Supreme Kamehameha!" Goku shouted as he blasted the strongest Kamehameha he's made yet. Instead of its usual blue color, it was pure white, and it was filled with the flames of Mastered Ultra Instinct.

There was a huge explosion that enveloped the World of Void. After the smoke cleared, Jiren was found lying on a crater…. Defeated.

"JIREN!" Toppo yelled in worry.

"Wow, he survived that? If I had been hit with that blast, I'm not sure if there would be any trace of me left!" Belmod was astonished at the level of power Goku displayed with the Supreme Kamehameha. For Jiren to still be alive and in one piece after getting hit head on spoke volumes of the Pride Trooper's strength and durability.

Goku dropped down to the crater and stared at Jiren with impassive Silver eyes.

"Well? Why won't you finish me?" Jiren asked in confusion. Jiren had lost. It was proven already that Goku was by far the better warrior. He had Mastered Ultra Instinct, the form that not even the Gods of Destruction could attain. And unlike Jiren, Goku was not only fighting for himself, but for his comrades who put all of their trust in him to win it all for their Universe.

But then for some reason…. Goku began to feel guilt.

All of this… this whole Tournament of Power… It was his doing. He was the one who went to Zeno and asked for this tournament to happen. And in the process, it cost the lives of so many innocents. Whole universes were erased just because of his selfish desires to fight strong opponents and to break his limits in order to become the strongest there is. He remembered the faces of the people who were erased. All good and innocent people and they were all gone just because the so-called "King of All" wanted to clear out the bad Universes with low Mortal Levels. It made him sick to his stomach whenever he realized just how many people, innocent lives, died just for their entertainment. He did a good job of hiding his anger so as to not worry the others.

Goku knows that he isn't exactly a "Hero" in the sense of Justice or anything but this Tournament of Power changed him. It made him realize that there were bigger things than his selfish desires. The lives of countless innocents were much more important than his need for fighting strong opponents. He remembered the two Saiyan girls, Caulifla and Kale. He saw great potential in those two and he hopes to get the opportunity to train them in the future. Kind of like how Vegeta's relationship with Cabba. When he saw them get erased, it broke his heart.

And when Goku thought about Hit and the others being erased…. A new resolve burned within him.

He made a decision.

Goku looked at Jiren with soft eyes and a look of guilt, "Jiren… I'm sorry… if it were up to me none of you would have to get erased. Thank you for pushing me to limits I could never dream of. I have attained this newfound power thanks to the experiences of this entire Tournament of Power. I promise I will pay each and every one of you back. I'll keep my word on that even if I die!"

Jiren widened his eyes in shock, "R-Really? W-What do you mean? Once I'm knocked off, my Universe is gonna get erased."

Goku shook his head, "Just trust me on this. I'll bring you all back… I promise!"

"Why are you having small talk at a time like this, Goku?! Hurry up and finish it!" Beerus shouted all the way from the stands. None of the spectators could hear the words that Goku and Jiren exchanged but Goku nodded his head to Beerus and walked towards Jiren.

Goku outstretched his hand and readied a yellow Ki blast strong enough to knock Jiren off.

But before that could happen, Goku collapsed to the ground.

The Great Priest smiled, "Just as I thought."

He got on his knees and panted heavily. Harsh purple lightning enveloped him as he reverted to his base form. He screamed in agony as pain coursed through his entire body.

"Goku! What the hell is going on!?" Beerus yelled.

"The limit-breaking power that surpasses even the gods… I didn't think the toll would be this great." Whis said as he now was worried for Goku's health. "This is not good. He took too long. That moment of hesitation will cost him."

"But, Goku had won! He'd won! He was just a blast away from victory! DAMN IT!"

"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!" Goku kept on screaming in pain as he was currently experiencing hell. He underestimated the power of Mastered Ultra Instinct. The heat of his energy was just too great for his mortal body to maintain. It drained his stamina way too quickly. It was only his first time using the form. He had no idea the drawbacks of using such a legendary form that not even gods could obtain.

"What's happening to Dad?! Is he going to be alright? It looks like he's… dying." Gohan said with a horrified tone. He had seen his father die once before. Never does he believe he should ever witness that again.

"That's because he is dying," The Great Priest replied to the son of Goku. "What Whis said is true. Goku's limit breaking power power was indeed a sight to behold. But such a power comes with a price. A price that unfortunately, your father's mortal body cannot afford to pay.

"What are you saying?" Gohan was smart enough to understand the implications of the Great Priest's words, but he didn't want to believe it.

"A mortal should not have access to all of that power. Such a power that is unrestrained and unbound by the laws of deities. No, it just cannot exist. Son Goku's time has run out. But of course, this was fated to happen. Everyone has limits for a reason. Even us gods."

Vegeta sat up in anger, "No that cannot be! Saiyans have no limits! I refuse to accept that nonsense!"

"Vegeta, calm down this instant!"

Vegeta turned to the voice of Beerus. Who on the surface was sitting down calmly. Watching Goku intently.

"How could I be calm, Lord Beerus?! Kakarot-"

"-Will be just fine." The Destroyer firmly stated. All of the other members of Universe 7 look at Beerus with surprise. Even Whis was a bit taken aback by his student's confidence.

The Saiyan Prince stared at the purple cat, "How do you know?"

Beerus sighed, "You said it yourself. Saiyans have no limits. Son Goku is the strongest Saiyan there is. All we can do is have faith in his power."

The Great Priest raised an eyebrow at the Destroyer, "You think Son Goku will survive?"

Beerus smirked, "More than just survive."

"Jiren, knock him off!" Belmod screamed at his Universe's greatest Warrior. "Do you want to lose?"

Jiren looked at Goku who was completely defenseless. He grit his teeth. He was hesitating to take advantage of his opportunity to finally win. But the words of Goku came back to his head.

'What if he was actually being sincere…?' Jiren thought.

"What are you doing? You'll get the Super Dragon Balls! Do it!"

Jiren sucked his teeth and got up, "Fine!"

The Pride Trooper outstretched his hand and aimed a crimson energy blast towards Goku.

"Proud warrior, Son Goku. It is not my wish for our showdown to end this way. But, even though you will cease to be, you shall live on forever in my memories. Farewell."

Goku could only watch as Jiren was ready to eliminate him.

'Damn it! I was so close to winning, and I blew it. Why am I such a failure? Even with Ultra Instinct, I still couldn't win!'

Son Goku was devastated as he felt excruciating pain. How could he fail? He had power that even surpassed the gods themselves, And yet he was about to ket everyone down.

Jiren blasted Goku. Goku was helpless as he was sent flying towards the outside of the ring. But before he could be eliminated, a sudden force of energy pushed him into the direction of a platform, thus saving him from elimination.

"Huh? YOU!" Jiren shouted.

"FREEZA!" Universe 7 yelled.

Then out of the ruins of the arena came out Android 17.

"No. 17 san!"

"So you didn't self-destruct."

Android 17 held onto his arm as he walked out of the dust, "It was a gamble whether I'd survive or not. Looks like I lucked out."

"You really are amazing!" Android 18 yelled.

"Jiren, you'll run out of time at this rate. Hurry up and knock them off!" Belmod yelled.

17 stood next to Freeza as he powered up, "With Son Goku in that condition, it looks like it's just us."

"I'm well aware!" Freeza replied as he powered up as well.

"How futile. Is dragging one who can no longer fight back to the stage… this 'trust' thing that you're always going on about?" Jiren said.

"Trust? What's your point?"

"Don't make me have to repeat myself."

"He's just insurance. I'll be winning the Super Dragon Balls, so there's no need for you to worry about repeating anything! I don't sense that absolute strength you exhibited earlier anymore. You shall experience the taste of defeat once more… by my hand!" Freeza said.

That got Jiren pissed off as he then rushed the two combatants. It seemed to be an even fight as 17 and Freeza used teamwork to get the edge over a weakened and fatigued Jiren. They were able to corner and trap him between rocks and 17 and Freeza were able to combine their attacks together to put JIren to the ground. Everybody thought they had won. Freeza went up to finish the job but….

"Jiren did well." Belmod said in a grave tone. Everyone knew why he was saying it. He believed this was the end.

"You've lost the spirit to even look at me." Freeza told the Pride Trooper. Jiren was do

"What are you doing, Jiren!"

Everybody looked to see Toppo on his feet.

"You would kneel before an enemy? Is this pathetic image how you end?! Get up, Jiren!"

"Your friend is quite obnoxious." Freeza said.

"I have no friends!"

"What did you build your strength while trusting no one all this time for?! Fight for your pride until the end! You may not believe in your own strength, but I do. Until the end! Jiren. You are strong! You are… stronger than anyone!" Toppo yelled as his words sparked a new resolve within Jiren.

"Honesty, I feel like vomiting." Freeza said.


Everybody looked on with gasps as Jiren's crimson aura flared and his power shot up to even higher than before.

"Run, Freeza!"

But it was too late…

Jiren immediately took the chance to grab Freeza and blast him with heavy and dense energy shots. He then flew all the way and blasted him all the way out of the ring. Freeza had been eliminated.

"Freeza has been knocked off." The Grand Priest said as Zeno pressed his button to indicate that Freeza was no longer in the game.

Freeza appeared on the stands.

"T-This can't be happening… We were so close! We were going to win!" Beerus said as he now feared for his Universes' destruction.

It was now 17 and Goku left.

'Damn it! Jiren isn't playing around anymore! He's gonna make quick work of 17 and then he's gonna come finish me off! I wish I could do something but I'm all out of juice! DAMN IT! I have to do something or else my Universe is gonna get erased and I won't fulfill the promise I made.' Goku thought in frustration as time was running out and he barely had any power left.

But then it hit him. He knew exactly what he needed to do to save his Universe and fulfill his promise….

He quickly Instant Transmissioned to where 17 was at and then teleported to a secluded hiding spot within the ruins of the arena.

"You can move?!"

"Look who's talking, No. 17! Listen, I'm going to need to ask a favor of you. It's really important that you do this in order to save our Universe and help me keep my promise." Goku said as he explained his plan to 17.

"What?! Are you out of your mind? You'll die!"

"I don't care. I rather risk my life than allow my Universe to get erased. I'm doing this for the greater good. Please promise that you will follow the plan!"

17 nodded sadly. "Alright you can count on me… it was nice knowing you Son Goku. Now go and save us all just like how you've always done!"

Goku smirked and then instant transmissioned to a platform all the way to the top of the arena. He then raised both of his hands to the air…

"EVERYONE! I hate to ask you this again, but please lend me your energy ONE MORE TIME!"

"Huh? But didn't he do this before? Why would it work now?" Krillin questioned.

"It doesn't matter! Just do what he says damn it!" Beerus yelled. Everybody in Universe 7, including Vegeta, gave all of the energy they could muster to Goku.

"That technique again? You must know that won't be enough to defeat me now. What are you planning?!" Jiren asked the Saiyan.

Goku gave the Pride Trooper a grin, "You'll see!"

"Jiren! I don't like that look on his face. He's got something up his sleeve. Don't let him finish charging that attack up!" Belmod yelled at Jiren.

Jiren nodded but before he could attack Goku, he was intercepted by 17.

"Sorry but you will have to go through me if you want to get to Son Goku."

"Fool! You have no chance against me and my ABSOLUTE POWER!"

"Then come and show me just what that power of yours can do!" 17 yelled as he fired blue energy blasts at Jiren. The blasts were nothing but a distraction, and Jiren understood this. He knew the Andorid was just trying to buy time for Goku. He dodged the blasts and went straight for Goku who was still busy charging up the Genkidama.

"NO!" 17 gasped as he realized what Jiren was doing. Universe 11's strongest warrior was too fast for the Android.

"Oh that's not good. 17-san won't be able to stop Jiren going at that speed. He's heading right for Goku-san." Whis stated.

"CRAP CRAP CRAP! Goku, watch out!" Beerus screamed at the top of his lungs. He was sweating profusely now due to the amount of nerves he was wracking up. His entire existence was on the line on the outcome of this battle.

Goku saw Jiren fire a crimson ki blast at him. He didn't have enough strength left to dodge as he was too focused on charging the Genkidama.

'Damn it, I can't dodge it in time! What do I do?!'

The blast made contact. There was an explosion that caused a bunch of smoke to appear. When the smoke cleared, everyone feared the worst and expected Goku to have been eliminated but what happened next took everyone by surprise.

Goku was completely shielded by a green orb of ki. Android 17 had surrounded Goku with his signature shield that was strong enough to tank one of Jiren's blasts.

"Nice one!" Android 18 yelled to her twin brother.

"What?! But how could he still have that much energy left to shield Son Goku from Jiren?!" Belmod exclaimed.

"That's right! Androids have infinite stamina! They don't lose any power or energy!" Krillin explained.

Beerus sighed in relief, "If that's the case then we may actually still have a chance. Come on Goku, hurry up and finish charging that Genkidama!"

"Right!" Goku kept on focusing as the Genkidama kept on getting bigger and bigger.

"Not on my watch!" Jiren was about to blast Goku again, but was stopped by 17.

"You are a pest. It's about time I get rid of you."

Jiren rushed towards 17 and before the Android could react, the Pride Trooper easily took him out of the ring.

"No. 17 has been eliminated." The Great Priest announced.

17 appeared next to the rest of his universe.

"Oh no, now it's only Goku left!" Tien said worryingly.

"Don't worry. I bought him enough time." 17 said confidently.

"You did well! Now Goku, you better not fail or else I'll DESTROY YOU MYSELF!" Beerus yelled to the Saiyan.

"You got it, Lord Beerus!"

The Genkidama formed almost instantaneously as it was now far bigger and stronger than it ever was before.

"Son Goku! Again you stand before me!" Jiren shouted as he powered up and sent shockwaves of his energy.

"An amazing amount of energy is gathering in Jiren!" Gohan said.

"It looks like Jiren's gotten over his issues!" Vegeta said in amazement as he never thought they would meet somebody so powerful.

"Jiren really is amazing… He got this strong all by himself. Even all of us together might not be able to beat him. But still…. I won't LOSE!" Goku shouted as he then began to absorb all of the energy of the Genkidama into himself. He then looked deep inside of himself. He thought of all of the things he had to do to get to this point. He then thought of all of the lives that were at stake. He couldn't lose no matter what! He had to keep his promise. He won't let everybody be destroyed damn it. He then emptied his thoughts and found the power he was seeking once again.

He then yelled out a deafening roar that seemed like it had two voices, one which sounded like an Oozaru! Goku's hair and eyes turned Silver, he bulked, gained a White hot aura like before , and his power shot up exponentially to new heights never seen before!

Son Goku has done it again! He reached Mastered Ultra Instinct!

"H-HE DID IT! He transformed again! YES! WE CAN WIN NOW!" Beerus shouted in happiness.

'Alright, I have one shot at this! I have to finish this now!' Goku thought.

Goku then balled his fist and used all of the energy he had left into one attack and rushed Jiren.


Goku's body once again was emitting an absurd amount of power and heat that made everyone present, even the Great Priest sweat a little.

'How is this possible? His mortal body shouldn't have been able to absorb all of that energy in his condition! How does this Saiyan keep surpassing his limits in such a short amount of time?!' The Great Priest thought in shock as he was once again witnessing the great power of Ultra Instinct Goku.

A giant Shenron-like White dragon materialized from Goku's energy and dived straight to Jiren. Jiren had no idea what was happening and was unfortunately caught in the dragon attack and was sent outside of the ring…

"Jiren from Universe 11 has been eliminated. Universe 11 will now be erased!"

Jiren was devastated. Even with all of the power he held, he still could not win. He still failed. He won't be able to see his Master.


The Pride Trooper looked up to see Goku smiling at him.

"I want to see you again. Train hard and get stronger! I will wait for our rematch!"

Zeno then erased Universe 11, leaving only Universe 7 in the stands.

"YES! WE DID IT!" Beerus shouted in joy as everybody began to celebrate their victory.

Goku gave a sad smile as he saw Universe 11 be erased.

Due to constantly breaking his limits over and over again, Goku's body could no longer hold it. Thus it was falling apart as harsh purple Hakia energy began to encircle the Saiyan God. He was gonna die.

However before that could happen, from the cracks of the void that was created by the clashes of Mastered Ultra Instinct Goku and Jiren, a vortex appeared.

It seems as though the Dragon Fist caused a rift in time. The limit breaking power of Mastered Ultra Instinct Goku was strong enough to transcend time. Goku had surpassed time itself.

"Wait! The Super Dragon balls! They could save you, Dad!" Gohan told his father.

On cue, The Great Priest summoned Super Shelong.

"Well Son Goku, what is your wish?"

Everyone expected for Goku to wish to save his life. But the sad smile he gave to his Universe confused them.

He then looked at his comrades and waved.

"Well, then guys… I guess this is goodbye…"


"I'm going to keep my promise."

Goku looked up to the Dragon and Great Priest.

"Please restore all of the Universes that were erased!"

The father of the Angels raised an eyebrow.

"Are you sure? You will die-"

"Yes, that is my wish! Please revive all of the universes that have been erased!" Goku stood firm on his wish!

"Dad… but why?"

Goku saw the tears in Gohan's eyes. He hated seeing his son in such a state. But this is what had to be done.

"I'm sorry Gohan. I don't want to leave you again. But this is the price I have to pay. Tell your mother and brother that I'm sorry. I love you all."

Goku, who was still in his Mastered Ultra Instinct form, was then sucked in by the massive vortex. He didn't even have enough time to prepare himself. His comrades called out his name as some tried to fly towards them as fast as they could but to no avail. The vortex closed before they could reach him.

Son Goku was gone….

"Whis, what the hell just happened?! Where is Son Goku!? He was the one who won the whole tournament for us!" Beerus yelled.

"I-I-I d-don't know…." Whis said.

Goku was not having a good time… He thought that after he unleashed his final attack, that his body would give out and die. But the vortex seemed to have saved him and helped him restore his injuries. He felt his body changing. Not only was his body recovering, but it felt like it was transforming to a prime and peak position. As if the vortex was trying to make him the best vessel possible. His Mastered Ultra Instinct and Hakiaishin energies began to merge to create something infinitely powerful.

Once that was done, there was a huge flash of light as Goku was finally transported by the vortex.

When Goku opened his eyes, he was met with a pair of Silver ones as he noticed that dozens of arrows were aimed at him. He looked around to see himself to what seemed to be a camp in the wilderness. All he saw were girls dressed in hunter clothing as they all stared at him with caution as if he were a threat.

"Who are you?! What is your name, male?!" One of the Hunters said venomously.

Goku thought for a second before he answered.

"Son Goku. Or… Kakarot!" He then passed out on the floor.
