If Freeza had a good amount of ki left he would try to fight in his golden form. He used this form just for a quick assault, which means he was dramatically drained as well, as pretty much everyone post Ultra Instinct debut.theherodjl wrote: ↑Sat Nov 23, 2019 4:36 amSince the claim here is that Goku & Vegeta's bases are a minor degree greater than their Boo arc selves, I totally can. Beerus was puzzled as to how Goku could have beaten Freeza, a Namek arc level fighter. Goku & Vegeta are claimed to only be a bit greater than their base selves from Beerus' estimate so that means weakened versions of these characters are Namek level. Additionally, Freeza at the end of the ToP wasn't nearly as drained as Goku & Vegeta. Freeza still had the power to launch a massive Ki blast at Jiren and then transform into his golden form afterwards, that's a rather big implication that he has a good amount of Ki left.
On top of that, Jiren could have easily knocked out Goku as he did to Vegeta. Goku just had lucky to not be chosen first. The best he could do was trying to hold a tired Jiren and he would have failed if Freeza didn’t charge into their position.
So, I don’t see how exactly you can made a valid comparison with characters at that level of drain, it’s a futile and excessively pedantic effort.
