Is Vegeta stronger than Goku in Dragon Ball Super? This is one of the most frequently asked questions since the Dragon Ball Super Season one ended.
After seeing Vegeta break his limits, evolved, and ascends to Super Saiyan Bule Evaluation, many fans wanted to know if Vegeta has finally surpassed Goku?
So, there are many reasons why most people think that between Goku and Vegeta, Goku is the strongest. Nonetheless, in this post, we are going to state the reason why Vegeta was stronger than Goku in season 1 of super anime and the manga version if Goku did have Kaioken and Ultra Instinct.
So if we go back to Dragon Ball Super episode 109 to 110 when Goku makes his first attempt to fight Jiren in the tournament of power.
Whis, reveal to us that Goku was utilizing his Super Super Saiyan Bule Kaioken x20 against Jiren which is far stronger than Vegeta’s Super Saiyan Blue.
However, Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken x20 Goku was still not enough to harm or hurt Jiren in the battle.
Jiren pushed Goku to use his trump card the Genkidama against him which pushes Goku to break his limit and achieve Ultra Instinct Omen.
Now, form What we know Ultra Instinct Omen Goku far exceeds his Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken x20 form. So the question is, How can Vegeta keep up with that kind of Power out of Goku and Jiren?
Was Vegeta Stronger Than Goku in Dragon Ball Super?
Vegeta was stronger than Goku in Dragon Ball Super season 1 physically without Goku using Kaioken x20 and Ultra Instinct Omen technique. This was due to Vegeta’s intense training in the time chamber before he fought Goku Black. Vegeta’s Super Saiyan Bule Evolution is stronger than Goku’s full power SSB.
We could all agree that both Vegeta and Goku are pretty much at the same level without using any transformation. So to clarify this statement, let’s jump forward to Dragon Ball Super episode 123.
Vegeta figures out a way to unlock Super Saiyan Evolution Blue and defeat God of destruction Toppo while teaming up with Goku against Jiren the gray.
So, both Goku and Vegeta held up pretty well against Jiren equally with Goku using his Super Saiyan Bule Kaioken x20 and Vegeta using his Blue Evolution.
However, Goku, on the other hand, was able to attain complete Master Ultra Instinct which widens the gap between him and Vegeta.
Anyways, we found out that Goku cannot hold on nor attain Mastered Ultra Instinct at will, and suffers serious strain on his body after the technique runs out.
So, this only means that Goku’s stronger from is his Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken x20.
Goku’s Kaioken x20
Goku’s Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken x20 transformation takes a major to on his body when he uses it in battle, as seen when he uses it on top of blue versus Hit.
So, what this means is that Kaioken takes up a lot of stamina, and stamina efficiency becomes a major issue for Goku. If Kaioken x20 Blue Goku and Vegeta Evolution Blue evenly match in power, Vegeta will have the upper hand over Goku.
However, we don’t know for sure if Vegeta’s Evolution Blue has any stamina issues, but it certainly looks like it does not have any downsides.
Not to mention, most transformation does not have the repercussion as Kaioken x20. We cloud say that Super Saiyan 3 comes close when it’s about stamina strain, but not like Kaiken x20 on Blue.
Dragon Ball Super Manga Vegeta and Goku
In the manga version of Dragon Ball Super, Goku revealed a new version of Super Saiyan Blue when he fought Merged Zamasu. Basically, Goku’s new version of SSB involves scaling off the overflowing power in one’s body to have perfect ki control.
However, Vegeta achieved and figured out this new version of Super Saiyan Blue as well, this was when he squares off against Beerus in the manga.
Goku after fighting Jiren In the manga powers up even more in his Blue form, potentially surpassing Vegeta then on to achieving Ultra Instinct Omen.
However, Vegeta realizes all that is happening around him in the manga, and pushes himself future and unlocks Super Saiyan Blue Master in the tournament of power.
Is Vegeta Stronger Than Goku in Manga?
Vegeta and Goku in the Dragon Ball Super Manga tournament of Power were both equal in power when compared with Super Saiyan Blue Mastered. However, it was not until Goku breaks his limits and achieved Ultra instinct Omen to face off against Jiren.
So, if Goku did not have Kaioken x20 or complete Ultra Instinct technique, Vegeta Super Saiyan Blue Mastered or Evolution in the manga would be the strongest form.
Is Vegeta Stronger Than Goku in Moro Arc?
After both Goku and Vegeta got defeat by Moro on planet Namek, Vegeta decided to find his own way of getting stronger by visiting Planet Yardrats. Goku trained with Merus and finally could tap into Ultra Instinct Omen at will. However, Goku uses his Ultra Instinct Omen technique on Moro and loses, while Vegeta steps in a defeat Moro with his new Fore Spirit Fission technique.
So this leads many to believe that Vegeta has now has surpassed Goku in Dragon Ball Super Manga chapter 61.
