Power Impact (パワーインパクト Pawā Inpakuto) is an energy sphere technique utilized by Jiren. It is his signature technique.
The user pulls their hand back, charging a red energy blast, and then pushes their hand forward, firing the attack. The user can also guide the attack wherever they choose. Once the blast hits and "grabs" the target, it will travel as far as its user wills it to be and then finally release a massive explosion.
Usage and Power
In his bout with Goku, when Jiren defeats Super Saiyan Blue Goku, he uses Power Impact in an attempt to knock Goku off the stage; however, Goku manages to grab the edge of the stage and so avoids being eliminated. After blocking Ultra Instinct -Sign- Goku's final attack, Jiren defeats him by blasting him away with this technique, but Hit's intervention distracts Jiren long enough to prevent him from dealing the finishing blow to Goku.
Jiren later uses this against Hit to eliminate him after Jiren shattered the Cage of Time and knocked Hit back.
During his fight with Vegeta, Jiren used this attack to send Vegeta across the fighting stage and almost off of it. However, Vegeta managed to deflect it thus preventing himself from being eliminated.
It can also be used in an orb form where Jiren wraps the energy of the blast around his opponent. The orb then explodes, causing massive damage. This version was powerful enough to knock out Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta and revert him to his base form.
When at full power, Jiren uses a more powerful variant where he makes and combines two small "ki" balls then charges it to make a normal Power Impact however when he fires it, the fireball massively increases in size making this attack can be very devastating. It can easily break multiple Android Barriers and it took Android 17 self destructing to completely stop the blast.
This attack can also be used as a defense. As shown when Jiren used it to block then counter Goku's Imperfect Instinct Kamehameha. Goku was blown away by the attack.
During his second bout with Ultra Instinct -Sign- Goku, Jiren used an extremely powerful Power Impact by charging up to a massive level of strength and compressing it to palm size. However, Goku, after completing Ultra Instinct, was able to catch the orb and dispel it with ease.
After breaking through his own limits, Jiren's Power Impact becomes more of a beam than a ball and it's destructive power is more powerful then ever before with it being able to overwhelm a Kamehameha from Ultra Instinct Goku.
When Goku's Ultra Instinct abilities fade away due to the sheer stress and concentration strain brought upon him, Jiren tries once more to eliminate the Saiyan with his Power Impact. However, as Goku is blown away, Frieza fires a focused kiai to knock Goku back onstage.
