I hope the idea the staff are getting at is that Gokuu is trying to mentally fatigue Jiren, which will lead to him making mistakes and those being his downfall.

If I were a betting man I'd say that Goku techniques will do a whole lot of nothing to Jiren, regardless it will be interesting to see. Also is 123 the episode were 17 paralyzes Toppo and Gohan hesitates or was that 124?

Ha! Wouldn't that be awesome, but naah, it's certainly most likely going to be him trying to catch Jiren off guard with an attack or something..

Knowing jiren, he is probably immune to such tactics. He also doesnt seem to be the guy to get mentally fatigued (the dude meditates 90% of the time)

I said 'try'. I think his mental fortitude will come into play. Still, Gokuu should try breaking his nose. That would sap hos stamina due to the lack of oxygen.

Jiren's nose is too durable.

I like your style of thinking. Vegeta could maybe do something himself by using the Shine Shot to burn Jiren's eyes, causing damage to the ganglion cells and maybe the optic nerve leading to the occipital lobe in the brain.

Why Dragon Ball Consistency in something such as power levels matter!

Hit him on the back of the ear to damage his sense of balance, then break his nose. Use judou if he tries to counter so that in his moment of disrupted balance he cannot so easily break off his attack and he is slammed at full force into the ring, which is made of a very durable material.

Jiren tends to glow his eyes when he does major attacks. Obviously Goku needs to use his ol' Rock-Paper-Scissors technique and poke his eyes out, ultimately diffusing his power and finally left eliminated.

Jokes aside, i honestly think jiren isnt going to be defeated this arc. There seems to be something of importance to him, something that maybe is being saved for another story... thats what I'm thinking. Theres a lot of attentiom on what he is seeking that is beyond what strengh can achieve.

I think it's fairly likely that Jiren will go undefeated this saga. As for him playing a role into something bigger later on, I think that's up in the air, but I would love it.

This new form is probably mastered blue form but what about ultra instict super sayan? (like super sayan god - super sayan/blue). In this last case vegeta would skip 1 form but it's not the first time.
We'll see :D

That's weird since the manga had its own exclusive transformation in given Vegeta Super Saiyan God and then later Mastered Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan.

Goku barely took a backseat in the Buu saga, at best he took a leisurely stroll round back while everyone else cried for him to come back.
