Jiren vs Broly! Here’s a discussion I didn’t think I’d do anytime soon but thought it would be fun regardless. So as many of you have seen the new Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie, we can all agree that Broly is a complete beast in his own right. However, some people still feel he could still be out-bested by another warrior named Jiren. I didn’t come up with this match up myself, I just witnessed it on Twitter (@EmperorPyros) and thought “huh, let’s talk about it some more”. So here we are!
Basically, many in the Dragon Ball community still believe that Jiren holds the upper hand against Broly in a fight simply because he was able to go toe-to-toe with the likes of Ultra Instinct Goku. So premise here is that unless Broly can match Ultra Instinct level, here’s not match against Jiren. I beg to differ to be honest. Heck, I’ve even seen people make the assumption that Gogeta, the ultimate fusion of two of the most powerful warriors in the universe would LOSE to Ultra Instinct Goku, simply because Gogeta wouldn’t be able to touch him. That’s wild to me. Not only would Gogeta smoke Ultra Instinct Goku, he’d do it with relatively ease. And if it took Goku and Vegeta fusing just to keep up and best Broly in battle, who kept up with them in his base form while fighting SSJG Goku and SSJG Vegeta, then it’s safe to say Gogeta Blue out-best UI Goku.
So my argument here is that, as it stands Jiren would “technically” beat Broly as he is now, as Broly lacks a number of things which he needs to beat Jiren. He hasn’t learned how to properly harness the true potential of his powers yet and lack actual combat experience. Sure he’s learned how to fight from his father and the monster of the barren world he grew up in, but no amount of training can prepare you for actual combat. With Goku promising to train Broly, there’s no doubt that Broly could beat Jiren in a fight.
I know that some of you will probably bring up the fact that Broly was punching the shit out Golden Frieza and Frieza still remained in his state, whereas Jiren knocked him out of the Golden State with one hit. Well, this is what I’m talking about here. Jiren know show to focus his attack well, while Broly is just launching attacks wildly. Trust me, if Broly gets that experience from Goku, Jiren isn’t touching him at all.
But that just one weeabo’s opinion. I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below and see if you can change my mind.
