UI Goku, or Ultra Instinct Goku, has been the hot topic since introduce in Dragon Ball Super. The debated “new transformation” of Goku, obtained from absorbing his own Spirit Bomb during a fight with Jiren, is what all fans are talking about. Released in the JP version of Dokkan Battle immediately after his arrival in the Show, UI Goku is now available for players of Dokkan Battle Global.
In Dokkan Battle, UI Goku is titled A Surging New Power Goku (Ultra Instinct -Sign-). UI Goku came as part of Dokkan Battle’s Christmas celebration, and offered Christmas-specific items and summon promos. Players could take advantage of summoning on UI Goku’s banner by use of 5 Dragon Stones, 15 Stones and 30 Stones.
Each summon gave extras such as Candy Canes (for training), special tickets for additional summons, and Christmas Master Roshis (Characters to increase other character’s Super Attack). After two rounds of these specialty summons, Dokkan Battle reverts the banner to a 50 stone multi-summon.
UI Goku is Dokkan Battle’s Latest Category Leader
UI Goku, while unable to be Dokkan Awakened at this time, brings quite a bit to Dokkan Battle. For starters, Ultra Instinct Goku offers a leader skill that promotes a new category called “Realm of Gods”. Characters of this category, which is essentially all of the God characters, will receive the following benefits from UI Goku as their leader:
- Ki +2
- ATK, HP & DEF +120%
Examples of characters who have now been assigned the category “Realm of Gods”:
- SSGSS Goku
- SSGSS Vegeta
- Goku Black
Alternatively, UI Goku’s leader skill offers INT-Type characters Ki +2, and ATK HP & DEF +40%.
Ultra Instinct Goku Passive Skill
UI Goku’s passive could be one of the most unique in Dokkan Battle. Called “A New Feeling”, the Ultra Instinct passive skill gives UI Goku a boost in ATK and DEF, additional KI, and even more ATK. On top of that, UI Goku has a high chance to avoid attacks when certain conditions are met, check it out:
A New Feeling – ATK & DEF +70%; plus an additional Ki +3, ATK +70% and high chance to evade enemy’s attack for 7 turns when HP is 50% or below (once only)
This passive skill offers a standard 70% increase in UI Goku’s ATK & DEF. On top of that, if Ultra Instinct Goku drops below 50%, he will trigger an additional effect. This effect gives UI Goku 70% more ATK, +3 Ki, and a high chance to dodge attacks for 7 turns. As stated in the description above, this can only happen one time per fight.
Ultra Instinct Kamehameha (Farmable SA)
UI Goku’s super attack is Kamehameha, though not the standard Kamehameha that we are accustomed to. UI Goku charges up, then quickly teleports and launches an upward Kamehameha out of nowhere. With that said, the JP version of Dokkan Battle allows players to farm Ultra Instinct Goku’s super attack.
Currently, in Global Dokkan Battle, the character used to farm UI Goku’s super attack – New Form on the Horizon Goku (Ultra Instinct -Sign-) is unavailable. In the JP version, players can farm this character from the Dragon Ball Super: Universal Survival Arc Event.
Here, you will have to obtain Long-awaited FightGoku ,which can be awakened into the UI Goku shown above. Hopefully, Dokkan Battle Global will release this stage soon for players to farm UI Goku’s super attack.
What to expect in the future for UI Goku in Dokkan Battle
Ultra Instinct Goku in Global Dokkan is somewhat unfinished. In the picture above, you can see the stats and details on UI Goku as he is in the JP version of Dokkan Battle.
While there is not a massive difference, there is a category “Universal Survival Saga” that is not currently available in Global Dokkan. Also, the link skill “Tournament of Power” is excluded from Global at this moment. As mentioned above, the event Dragon Ball Super: Universal Survival Arc where UI Goku’s super attack can be farmed is also in transit.
With that said, UI Goku feels like an incomplete character to many. Even in the JP version of Dokkan Battle, it feels as though UI Goku is strong, but not worth the trouble and Dragon Stones. Maybe if Dokkan Battle gives him a Dokkan Awakening we will see a version of Ultra Instinct Goku that truly makes players amazed.
Additional Details on UI Goku
Clarification: The way Goku’s passive works is that once your HP falls to or below 50%, he gets his additional buff for 7 turns. However, you do not need to stay below 50%. You only need to fall below 50% once to get his buff, after that it will be active for 7 turns, so healing yourself will not take away his buff.
► His stacks only apply for his base ATK after leader skill and passive
► 12 Ki Multiplier is 150%
Dragon Ball Super May Determine the Fate of UI Goku in Dokkan Battle
As with the release of UI Goku in Dokkan Battle, Dragon Ball Super’s reveal is what caused the instant creation of this character. As the Tournament rages on, maybe we will see a Dokkan Awakening that is inspired by a new event in Dragon Ball Super.
