"If so, then that is the fate of our Universe. I'm not about to save our Universe at the cost of erasing all the others."
— Jiren initially refusing to enter the Tournament of Power in The Man Named Jiren

Jiren (ジレン Jiren), also referred to as "Jiren The Gray" (灰色のジレン Haiiro no Jiren), is a member of the Pride Troopers who participates in the Tournament of Power with the purpose of obtaining a wish from the Super Dragon Balls.



Jiren is a tall, very muscular humanoid with an appearance similar to the folkloric aliens known as the Greys. He has gray skin, big round black eyes enlarged pupils and nostrils in place of a full nose. He wears the uniform of the Pride Troopers consisting of a red, spandex-like suit with black sections around the collar and legs, white gloves, and white boots.


"Jiren is a man who is completely devoted to justice. He never acts on any of his own desires or interests. And no matter how evil a villain he's up against, his absurd conviction is such that he won't ever kill them. But there is one thing... He has a wish that he'd even be willing to set aside his convictions to have come true."
Belmod to Khai in The Man Named Jiren

Jiren devotes everything to justice and never acts for selfish reasons, he lives to protect Universe 11, even stating that he would leave the tournament while it was happening in order to return there if any problem arose in the 48 minutes of the tournament. He will never kill any villains he defeats and instead captures them. When Toppo tells Jiren to participate in the Tournament of Power he initially refuses to enter - as while it is his duty to protect Universe 11, he will not cause the destruction of other universes to save his own. However, Jiren has a wish that he wants to fulfill, to the point that he will go against his own principles to get that wish - and as such he enters the tournament to obtain the Super Dragon Balls, although he still states that if any trouble should occur for Universe 11, he would immediately leave to help.

Like Toppo, Jiren is shown to be very stoic and serious about the tournament, as he knows that his entire universe is at stake, this was shown when he did not perform a pose like his teammates and when he told Goku to get lost when he tried to greet him. Jiren also appears to be a quiet person as he remained silent and spoke very rarely and when he does so he only spoke in short but clear sentences. Similar to Toppo and other Pride Troopers, he shows disgust against those who actively kill and do not follow justice. This is seen when Jiren mocks Hit's "honor" as an assassin, deeming it as rubbish.

He is a very brave and disciplined individual, remaining unfazed while everyone was in either awe or fear of Kale's unleashed state, however, he still took immediate action and defeated her easily.

He appears to be a rather cold and merciless individual, as seen when he had absolutely no visual distress or shock at the erasure of Universe 9. Although another possibility is that he simply hid his emotions from his teammates to show that he was still calm and collected. His eyes also did not possess the same amount of force that is usually behind his glare at the time. Nevertheless, Jiren is not without a measure of concern or annoyance; he showed some surprise when Super Saiyan Blue Goku fired his Kamehameha at him, and again when he realized that Hit had managed to land his Cage of Time on him. He also was shown to be bewildered when Vegeta managed to avoid his high-speed punches and hit him solidly. He has also shown genuine shock and fear on a few but rare occasions such as his near eliminations by the hands of Goku and Hit

While Jiren respects Toppo, and willingly listens to him and follows his orders, he may be direct and blunt even to his friend, as he sternly told Toppo to step aside so that he could handle Maji Kayo, who was restraining Dyspo. While not intentionally blunt, this was enough to take Toppo by surprise. Jiren also only began to truly fight when ordered by Belmod, indicating that despite his terrifying power, Jiren obeys his superiors. However, Jiren didn't reply to Belmod in a respectful manner when the god ordered him in a telepathic conversation. On the other hand, when Goku arose to his new power and managed to hit it, Jiren refused to accept even the help of his comrades after seeing that this new power was a serious threat.

Jiren is very proud of his strength.[1] Like Goku, Jiren feels uncomfortable knowing that an opponent is not using their full power against him and will not use any more strength than necessary. He is also open in his praises of others, as he commented on Goku's growth since their first exchange and the sheer might of Vegeta's Final Flash.

Jiren's usual approach to fighting is to let his opponent come to him. When fighting, Jiren only uses as much power as is necessary to overpower his foes and allows his opponents to attack him with their ultimate abilities, only to counter them in order to display his superiority. Not only does Jiren take pride in his strength, but Belmod and Khai show equal pride in Jiren's strength as well, stating him to be the Pride of Universe 11. As such, Jiren shows a great excess of confidence border-lining on arrogance; after beating Goku and eliminating Hit, he withdrew from the tournament to meditate, openly declaring that his help to secure the victory of Universe 11 was no longer necessary.

However, after Goku awakened his hidden power again, Jiren returned to the side of his colleagues in order to observe Universe 7 defeat the other Universes. This ultimately did not stop him from underestimating them, because soon after the fall of the Universe 3, he said that regardless of what Goku and his allies did, they would still be defeated by Universe 11.

When the battle between Universe 7 and Universe 11 resumed, and Jiren and Goku fought each other again, Jiren asked Goku on why he sought strength, only for Goku to respond that he doesn't know. In their talked, Jiren revealed that he sought what lies beyond strength.



Jiren's power is greater than that of a God of Destruction however, he is not interested in becoming one and so his comrade Toppo was chosen to be the God of Destruction candidate for Universe 11 instead. Jiren has a wish that he wants to fulfill, no matter the cost. His very existence was considered a rumor in other universes; he is known as the only mortal that a God of Destruction cannot defeat.

Jiren meditating

In the anime, when Universe 7 is selecting their team, Jiren is one of the foes from another Universe pictured by Old Kai. He is seen meditating prior to the tournament.

Belmod asking Jiren for help

Belmod asking Jiren for help.

In the manga, Jiren was on Planet Towale dealing with the prisoners that broke out of the galaxy prison and started a riot. When the Pride Troopers were combating Choki, who was attacking Planet Bas, Jiren suddenly arrives and defeats Choki instantly, capturing it by turning it into a capsule. Toppo tells Jiren they need to talk in the ship, however, Jiren states that they must ensure the safety of the civilians first. Once this is done, Toppo requests that Jiren enter the Tournament of Power, however, Jiren refuses - stating that he will not destroy other universes to protect his own. However, Belmod arrives and tells Jiren that if he wins the tournament he can use the prized Super Dragon Balls to grant "his wish", hearing this, Jiren agrees to participate on the condition that if anything happens in Universe 11 while they are away he can return immediately to help.

He, along with the rest of the Pride Troopers participating in the Tournament of Power, arrive in the World of Void to start the Tournament of Power. Jiren, along with Toppo, looks just as serious for the tournament, as he knows the stakes of the tournament if they lose. When Goku arrives to greet him, Jiren manages to get right behind Goku and tells him to get lost, surprising Goku because Goku had his eyes on him the entire time, yet he was still unable to actually read his movements.

The Katchi Katchin missing Jiren due to his advanced movement analyses

When the Gods of Destruction who were reconstructing the arena realize the teams have already arrived, they begin to increase the speed of the reconstruction, causing the Katchi Katchin to fly at incredible speeds. All of the other fighters dodge the blocks, but Jiren was able to perfectly analyze the movement patterns of the blocks and found his position was perfectly fine, so just when they seemed like they were about to hit him, they avoided him completely. This leaves Goku very impressed, as he remarks Jiren is truly no ordinary fighter. He and the rest of the Pride Troopers prepared to fight as the Tournament of Power finally begins. When Rabanra prepared to fight him, Jiren scared him off by a single look.


Jiren defeating Kale

During Kale's rampage, Jiren defeats her with a single attack and at Goku until Toppo showed up and blasted him with Justice Flash. They then retreated to preserve stamina. Later on, when Brianne de Chateau, in her Ribrianne form, unleashed her Light of Love all over the arena, Jiren knocked away one of the projectiles and tried to stop the attack completely with his Power Impact, only for Vegeta to beat him to it. He, alongside Toppo and Kunshi watched Dyspo's fight with Hit. He and Dyspo are ordered by Toppo to drop all restraints, even moral ones, in order to save their universe.

After Dyspo was tricked and trapped by Maji Kayo, Jiren came to his aid and immediately intercepted his giant fist with the force created by the power of his punch, resulting in the jelly-like humanoid getting knocked out of the arena and eliminated from the tournament.

Jiren's Ki blocking Goku's Kamehameha.

In the special, approximately halfway through the tournament, Belmod commands Jiren to crush Goku. Jiren unleashes his Ki which permeates through the entire World of Void, shocking everyone including Beerus. Goku fires a Kamehameha only for it to be completely negated by Jiren's wall of energy. Goku then turns into a Super Saiyan and begins landing blows on Jiren, which have no effect on him whatsoever. Goku turns Super Saiyan 2, which also demonstrates little success, and then Super Saiyan God, but his blows are easily blocked by Jiren with only one finger. Goku powers up to Super Saiyan Blue and begins trading blows with Jiren. Jiren easily counters all of Goku's attacks and overpowers him, even when he starts using X20 Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken. After knocking Goku down, Jiren grabs him by the hair and blasts him off the arena, only for Goku to be barely hanging on by the edge.

Jiren momentarily struggling against Goku's Spirit Bomb

As Goku attempts to attack Jiren again in his X20 Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken state, Jiren seemingly glares at Goku and deals several invisible blows, knocking Goku away. It is revealed that Jiren's attacks were so fast that even fighters such as Vegeta were unable to see it coming. Goku then resorts to his trump card and creates a Spirit Bomb using the energy of Team Universe 7 (except Vegeta, who refuses to give Goku energy). Jiren allows Goku to charge the attack, intrigued at how powerful Goku's trump card is. As Goku tosses the Spirit Bomb at Jiren, Jiren easily repels it with one hand much to everyone's shock. Goku then turns Super Saiyan Blue, forcing Jiren to use two hands, albeit with only minor difficulty. Goku uses Kaio-Ken once again, but ultimately prove ineffective as Jiren is still able to push the Spirit Bomb back. Eventually, Jiren used a concentrated glare to push the Spirit Bomb back at Goku. The two clashing powers of Goku and Jiren cause the Spirit Bomb to implode upon itself, covering Goku in the explosion.

Jiren and Ultra Instinct Goku face off

As the smoke clears, it seems as though Jiren had won the battle and Goku was vaporized by his own attack. However, Goku re-emerges in the state of Ultra Instinct -Sign-. In this state, Goku attacks Jiren, the only one out of the three Pride Troopers in the area that saw the attack coming and dodged it. Goku is able to dodge Jiren's attack in this state and exchange a few blows before being interrupted by Toppo and Dyspo, who attempts to attack Goku, only to be quickly thrown aside by him. Jiren signals to Toppo that he doesn't want his help, and the two begin fighting. In Goku's state of Ultra Instinct, he is able to dodge and counter most of Jiren's attacks and have even shown to be able to push him back, although he is unable to land any serious damage on Jiren. However, Goku soon loses this power due to the imperfect state of the form, and Jiren blasts Goku aside with a Power Impact, severely wounding him. Hit comes in an attempt to attack Jiren when he's open, but Jiren easily blocks his attack and questions Hit as to what he's doing, and Hit says that he's working.

Jiren stops Hit's attack

Jiren stops Hit's attack

Jiren and Hit began their battle with Jiren blocking all of Hit's attacks and counter his Time-Skip as well, much to Hit and Champa's shock. Jiren begins to corner Hit until he finally lands a hit on Jiren, which is also his trump card. With that attack, he manages to paralyze Jiren, but Jiren still manages to move somewhat slowly. Seeing that he can't hold Jiren much longer, Hit goes for a final attack on Jiren but Jiren manages to stop it with his glare. Then, Jiren grabs and crushes the energy sphere Hit was attacking him with, which released him from the paralysis. After attacking Hit for a while, Jiren sends him flying out of the ring with a Power Impact. After Toppo and Dyspo arrive, Jiren sits down and starts meditating, claiming that the opponents he was needed for are finished and he is no longer needed, staring at Goku as he says so before meditating. He was then attacked by Viara and Katopesla but they were unable to breach his barrier.

While he is meditating, his arm twitches when he feels Kefla's energy, but he still feels there is no need for him to intervene. Once again, when Kefla and Goku power up to their respective Super Saiyan Blue and Super Saiyan forms, Jiren's right eye twitches, yet he still does nothing. It is only when Goku reaches a new height in his Ultra Instinct -Sign- form that Jiren finally stops his meditation and decides it is time for him to fight once again. He then watches Team Universe 7 eliminate Universes 2, 6, 4, and 3 from the tournament with Toppo and Dyspo by his side. After the elimination of Universe 3, the remaining members of Universe 11 finally confront the remainder of Team Universe 7, to which Jiren proclaims that no matter what they do they will not emerge victoriously.

Jiren clashing with Vegeta

The final battle starts off with Jiren fighting a fully powered Super Saiyan Blue Goku and asking why Goku seeks more strength, oddly saying that Goku doesn't know when Goku answers by saying he simply wishes to become stronger. When Goku asks if Jiren wants to become stronger too, Jiren only responds by saying he seeks what lies beyond strength. Vegeta soon charges in and fight him as well. Jiren at first lets Vegeta attacks him, taking no damage from the relentless assault, however, when Vegeta proclaims he will be the one who gets the Super Dragon Balls, Jiren becomes annoyed and punches Vegeta away. He prepares to blast him only for himself to be knocked aside by Goku. The Pride Trooper then fights both Saiyans at the same time easily dodging their attacks. However, when Jiren attempted to land a flurry of punches at Vegeta; the Saiyan Prince (who had watched Jiren attack Goku) easily dodged them and landed a devastating blow against the Pride Trooper, much to his intense shock. Jiren is then pushed back by Vegeta and once again takes another heavy blow thought soon turn the tides and nearly knocks Vegeta off the stage with a Power Impact. Jiren proclaims that Vegeta will never be able to defeat him and that his fighting style has no purity. Vegeta then powers up a fully charged Final Flash and fires it at Jiren who blocks it this time. When the dust settles, Jiren is briefly seen on the ground seemingly knocked out by the blast, only to appear in front of Vegeta in an instant without a scratch and commends him for the attack. He engulfs Vegeta in a massive orb of energy which implodes onto itself and knocks Vegeta out.


Jiren faces Goku and Vegeta beyond their limits

After defeating Vegeta, Jiren turns his back to them and acknowledges Vegeta as a warrior before telling him to stay down. However, Goku then powers up and once again challenges Jiren to which the Saiyan begins to use Instant Transmission around him while avoiding his attacks. Unbeknownst to Jiren is that Goku planted Ki landmines that explode once Jiren stepped on one. However, it is revealed that Jiren avoided the first explosion by jumping up in the air. He then proceeds to destroy several Destructo Discs thrown at him by Goku before literally grabbing one with his bare hand and tosses it back which slices through the platform that Goku was standing on before he punches the latter away. He begins to pummel Goku atop of the collapsing platform before unleashing a devastating punch into Goku's chest. As Jiren charges energy into his fist and preparing to eliminate Goku from the tournament, the Destructo Discs return and slice through the platform where Jiren was standing shocking the Pride Trooper. He tries to blast Goku but the Saiyan kicks him off before he could. Despite this, Jiren is not so easily defeated as he begins to show his aura and jumps off the debris before returning to the ring thus preventing himself from being eliminated. Jiren begins to casually walk towards Goku all while shrugging off the Ki landmines that Goku planted earlier. He attacks Goku once again, quickly overwhelming the Saiyan, before he starts to power up which is actually something of a rare event to Belmod and Khai. Goku and Jiren clash once again, exchanging fierce blows across the battleground, before Jiren evades an attack from Goku and charges up energy into his fist then shoots outward, creating a beam that pierces through several slabs of concrete and renders Goku from Blue to his base form in sheer shock. The Pride Trooper then begins to pummel Goku with a multitude of punches before stopping, causing Goku to state that Jiren hits harder than anyone he has ever fought before but will not back down much to Pride Trooper's frustration. Jiren then notices Vegeta standing back up and once again declares that he will be the one to defeat Jiren and obtain the Super Dragon Balls. The Pride Trooper faces off against both Saiyans who start to power up to their maximum; resulting in Goku going X20 Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken and Vegeta attaining a new transformation that is said to be beyond the power of Super Saiyan Blue. Jiren invites them to attack and the Saiyans begin to pummel Jiren relentlessly while the Pride Trooper attempts to defend himself. He notes that their attacks have gotten much sharper only for them to attack once again and begin to gradually overwhelm Jiren. Tien initially is stunned to see Goku and Vegeta working together but Whis notes that they actually aren't and instead are fighting their own separate battles with Jiren, which is ironically throwing him off-balance, all while the Pride Trooper and the Saiyans stare each other down.


Manga and Anime

Jiren is the strongest warrior in Universe 11, vastly surpassing even Toppo, who is the leader of the Pride Troopers and a God of Destruction candidate for Universe 11.[2] Despite only being a mortal, Whis notes that his power enters the domain of Gods of Destruction, potentially even surpassing it. Even more, he is the only known mortal that a God of Destruction cannot beat in combat, making him equal to if not exceeding a Destroyer in power, rendering him the most powerful mortal in all 12 universes. Belmod even claims that Jiren is a being that will never lose. He is considered the Pride of Universe 11. In the manga, Jiren states that he doesn't need a spaceship to travel from one planet to another because he can do it in less time by flying, showing such extreme speed, even for cosmic standards, and can survive the vacuum of the space. His raw speed is even shown to exceed his ally Dyspo, who defining skill is light-speed movement.

Despite his overwhelming might, Jiren's fighting style is mostly defensive as, according to Belmod, Jiren tends to let his opponents come to him. He will calmly allow his opponent show their hand, refusing to strike back until either required to or the opponent shows enough strength to actually compete against him, and even then use no more strength than truly needed. Once engaging in battle, his attack methods are very basic but solid and efficient, quickly decimating the foe with sheer force. Jiren has extremely advanced movement analysis, able to near-instantly perceive and determine the flow of events. When the Gods of Destruction finished fixing the ring faster, Jiren did not bother to dodge the high-speed movement of Katchi Katchin, as he quickly determined that they would not strike him - whereas everyone else opted to dodge.

After seeing Goku's Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken might, Toppo notes firmly that the Saiyan would have no chance of winning against Jiren. Upon meeting Goku, Goku immediately became in awe at the might of Jiren's mere presence. To which, when Goku approached the stoic warrior, Jiren instantly got behind Goku, who was completely unable to follow or react to this despite looking right at him, leaving Goku stupefied.


The shockwave from Jiren's punch defeats Maji Kayo

During the Tournament of Power, Jiren scared Rabanra away by just looking at him. When Kale went on a rampage in her Berserker Super Saiyan form, Jiren effortlessly knocked out and launched Kale away with a single Power Impact, while everyone else was completely overwhelmed by her power as even their strongest attacks barely even fazed her. Hit, Universe 6's strongest warrior found Jiren a "disturbing presence", opting to fallback against Jiren after witnessing his power against Kale. Jiren effortlessly deflected a projectile from Ribrianne's Light of Love, which most of the other fighters had great difficulty dealing with. Against Maji Kayo, the sheer force from Jiren's punch sent a shockwave that knock the foe out of the arena without direct contact.

Once Jiren began to get serious, he unleashed such intense ki that it shook the entire World of Void, a realm of infinite size, and stupefied everyone present. Beerus was shocked and sweating over his massive power, wondering how one person can unleash that much energy. With no effort to defend, Jiren took no damage from Goku's attacks up to Super Saiyan 2 and blocked Super Saiyan God Goku's assault with a single finger. Against Super Saiyan Blue, Jiren initially was pushed back until he put more effort, casually thrash Goku about. Even X20 Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken only somewhat helped Goku against the relaxed Jiren. Jiren was able to easily push back the Universe 7's Spirit Bomb with just a release of energy. Only with X20 Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken did Goku just make Jiren use both hands before gradually wearing Goku down. When Goku re-emerged with Ultra Instinct -Sign-, only Jiren could follow the empowered foe. Jiren initially deflecting Goku's assault without much effort, but Goku's prowess kept steadily growing, forcing Jiren to fight seriously and keep on par. While Goku gradually started pushing Jiren back finally overwhelm him to land solid blows, while rattled by them, Jiren quickly emerged with no signs of fatigue or physical harm. Before Jiren could be fully tested against Ultra Instinct power, Goku regressed to normal, letting the Pride Trooper instantly knock out Goku. Immediately afterwards, he effortlessly block a preemptive sneak attack from Hit with his free hand. Frieza also noted to Goku that he wanted to avoid having to fight Jiren at all costs.

Against Hit, Jiren effortlessly anticipated and reacted to Hit's Time-Skip each time, effortlessly countering as Hit couldn't touch Jiren. Jiren was also able to see and easily block Hit's Flash Fist Crush and likewise emerged unfazed by the same attack hitting him at point-blank. While initially trapped in Hit's Cage of Time, Jiren was able to move with significant effort despite being suspended in time. Realizing he couldn't hold him for the remainder of the tournament, Hit attempted to eliminate Jiren, who stopped Hit with a simple glare and proceeded to break the sphere which kept the Cage of Time active. Vados and Shin states that Jiren possesses power that transcends time itself. Jiren then easily overpowered Hit and knocked him out of the arena with a Power Impact, taking out Universe 6's apparent ace player.

After defeating Hit and essentially Goku, Jiren calmly decided to leave the rest of the tournament to Toppo and Dyspo, stating that the opponents he was needed for are no longer a threat, instead resigning to meditation. In credit to his claim, his body would continuously produce a powerful barrier in this state, to which Dyspo notes that no one is worthy of fighting Jiren if they cannot even get through the barrier. As the Universe 6 Saiyans began showing a tremendous increase in power and even fusing together, it only momentarily deterred him from his meditation. It is only when Goku's Ultra Instinct "Omen" form arises once again that Jiren stopped his meditation to observe his foe's fight. During the rampage of Anilaza, Jiren was the only one who could deflect the giant foe's blasts unaided, using his Power Impact. Also, the debris launched by Anilaza was calmly repelled by Jiren's sheer energy.

In the final confrontation against Team Universe 7, while impressed with Goku's sudden growth, Jiren still proved to be fighting half-heartedly. Even when Vegeta joined the fight, Jiren was unfazed by the change, easily beating away Vegeta while forcing back Goku without much effort. After Vegeta analyzed Jiren's attack patterns against Goku, Jiren was shocked by Vegeta avoiding his assault and hitting him back. From this, Vegeta began pushing Jiren back, getting through Jiren's defenses and landed solid blows. However, Vegeta noted that Jiren was showing much less strength than against Goku. To which, once Jiren got more serious, he quickly knocks Vegeta down to badly injure and exhaust him back into base form. After mocking Vegeta's pride, Jiren was hit by a supercharged Final Flash from Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta. While he was unable to block it and knocked to the ground hard, Jiren quickly emerged unharmed. He then noted that the force from the Final Flash wasn't half-bad and quickly delivers an energy attack that defeats Vegeta. When battling Goku again and nearly getting eliminated by him, Jiren manages to save himself by methodically jumping off the various falling debris to return to the arena. He then proceeds to unleash a hint of his true power (Belmod noted that Jiren has used this much in a while), firing off a regular punch with such power that the shockwaves he generated pummeled Goku back into his base form. After Goku and Vegeta push their Super Saiyan Blue forms well past their limits, they both attacked Jiren together. While technically fighting together, they were in reality fighting individually, which actually worked to their advantage as it through off Jiren off-balance and began pressuring him.

Statements by guidebooks and authors

Jiren is a key player for Team Universe 11 during the Tournament of Power.[3]

Jiren possesses unthinkably colossal ki.[4]

Even with the X20 Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-ken, Goku is no match for Jiren.[5][6][7]

Jiren's power has reached the domain of the Gods of Destruction.[8]

Techniques and Special Abilities

  • Flight - The ability to take flight through the manipulation of ki. Combined with his ability to survive the vacuum of space and his tremendous speed, Jiren's flight leaves any spaceship useless to travel from one planet to another.
  • Ki Blast - The most basic form of energy attacks.
  • Ki Sense - The ability to sense ki and power levels.
  • Power Impact - Jiren's signature move, Jiren fires a red-orange ki blast in the form of a fireball. It starts out relatively small but expands massively upon impact. He used this attack to stop Kale's rampage and several times throughout the Tournament of Power. He also has an orb variant of the attack where he uses it to surround Vegeta with a Ki orb and knock him out.
  • Energy Punch - Jiren charges his fists with red ki and launches powerful punches. These are simply Jiren's normal punches when he is displaying a hint of his true power.
  • Energy Barrier - Jiren's ki is powerful enough to serve as a barrier against attacks considerably weaker than it.
  • Invisible Strikes - Jiren is capable of moving at extreme speeds, which allows him to launch a barrage of powerful punches in an instant. He can also use this attack by simply glaring at his opponent. When he does this, Jiren moves so fast that from other's perspectives, he doesn't seem to be moving at all.
  • Vacuum Survival - In the manga, Jiren is able to survive in the vacuum of space as he proved able to travel through the vastness of space from one planet to another, finding it the quickest way to continue his duties.


Jiren possesses a device on his wrist, which he can use to shrink his opponents into capsules in order to capture them.

  • Jiren was originally set to debut in episode 78, and appeared in the initial preview for it. However, he was replaced by fellow Pride Trooper Toppo in the final version. He was also meant to fight Goku in episode 82, and the statement of him fighting Goku was accidentally kept in the episode synopsis.
  • Jiren's name appears to come from the word renji, Japanese for stove.
  • There appears to be an inconsistency with Jiren's height, as in some scenes, he is shorter than Toppo, while in other scenes, the two are of similar height.
  • Jiren is the second person to repel the Spirit Bomb, the first being Kid Buu.
    • However, Jiren is the first and only person to ever successfully deflect the Spirit Bomb back at Goku.
    • He is also the third person to survive the Spirit Bomb, the first being Vegeta, and the second being Frieza.
    • He is also the only person who voluntarily waited for the Spirit Bomb to fully charge. Every other victim of it either tried to interrupt it, or didn't know until it's too late.
  • Jiren's first fight with Goku is similar to that of Frieza:
    • He was clearly superior to Goku, even with a X20 Kaio-ken, not fighting seriously.
    • Goku used the Spirit Bomb as a last resort, failing. However, unlike Frieza, Jiren was completely unscathed.
    • After the failed Spirit Bomb, Goku "awakened" a new and unusual form never seen before, result from some events shown before (Super Saiyan with the constant Saiyan Power boosts and Ultra Instinct -Sign- with the constant training with Whis).
  • Jiren's fight against Vegeta shared similarities to Cell: When Vegeta used his Final Flash, he goaded Jiren to take the blast head-on which, he charged-up to extreme levels that left him exhausted. Afterwards, Jiren was seemingly defeated, leaving Vegeta to laugh in victory before swiftly being proven wrong and defeated.
