That's fine. It's really my fault for assuming that you were being snarky. I guess I misinterpreted the comment... again.JazzMazz wrote: I apologize. I wasn't trying to come off as snarky.
I guess in the sense that he is somewhat of a loner, he's not a team player, but he is actively going around the ring in search of fighters to eliminate. Which is in fact actively helping his team win. In the anime he just sat there and meditated while his team did most of the work. And even when he targets other fighters, he most of the time failed to eliminate them so for some reason even though he has all the power in the world to do so, even when he catches them off guard, to the point where I question is he even trying to help. In the manga it's obvious that he is trying to eliminate Goku, but had to leave because of some invisible foe. He didn't deliver some half-assed blow that failed to eliminate the most dangerous fighter he came across. He left the fight out of Dyspo's advice.Personally, I'm of the sort that thinks Jiren really hasn't done anything to suggest he is a team player. Yes, he fights people from other universes, but he doesn't really work with anyone from his own universe, hell, even when offered to be helped by Toppo and Dyspo against Hit and Jiren, he adamantly refused. I feel this aspect of him still very much defines him as a loner.
EDIT: Aparrently I can edit my comment now.
But just to clarify my point, in the manga there actually seems to be an attempt from Jiren in eliminating people, where as in the anime, he seems to be going in weird direction where they can't decide what his motivation is and what he wants to do.
