Goku goes Ultra Instinct in episode 129 of Dragon Ball Super named Limits Super Surpassed.

Which Episode Does Goku Master Ultra Instinct?

Goku first uses Ultra Instinct in episode 129, during a battle with Jiren. Goku decides to inflict damage on his opponent, so he switches to offensive mode using the Kamehameha wave. He gets close to Jiren for unleashing the wave, but it doesn’t affect Jiren because he has studied Goku’s fight moves already. Jiren manages to block the wave and shoot a power blast at Goku, because of which he is thrust to a distance.

When Belmond shouts at Jiren to knock off Goku, our hero responds with a ballet cry and an upsurge of power. The battle between the two gets intense. Throughout the battle, Goku tries increasing his Ultra Instinct energy. Just when Jiren decides to deliver a finishing blow with a full power blast, he is easily overcome by Goku, who now has mastered Ultra Instinct!

Goku now has a bright white neon aura around him, and his hair has turned white neon as well. He gives multiple blows to his opponent. The Gods of destruction stand, and Whis confirmed to Beerus that our hero’s Ultra Instinct is complete.

What is Ultra Instinct?

Ultra Instinct It’s a technique separating the consciousness from the body, allowing the martial artist to move and fight independently of his thoughts and emotions. It’s a highly difficult technique to master, even for Hakaishin. But Whis has mastered it, which is why it is called the state of the gods.

Most users who master Ultra Instinct do not change in physical appearance. However, Goku received a transformation. His eyes and hair become silverfish. His aura comes crystalline, and we are able to see additions of white and blues. He wears purple and red colours.

Trust Goku to accidentally discover one of the most powerful transformations. There’s Vegeta sweating blood in a million times gravity and getting in secret training sessions with Whis only for this to happen. #vegetas
