Overview[edit]


DBFZ UI Goku Icon.png UI Goku
"You don't stand a chance against me."
Lore:Pushed to his limits during the Tournament of Power, Goku tapped into this powerful mental state in order to battle Jiren, a technique of such strength that not even a God of Destruction could rival it: Ultra Instinct. Through repeated use, Goku manages to complete the form, allowing him to lead his Universe in standing a chance against Jiren. With his mind and body separated, Goku becomes fast enough to swiftly evade incoming attacks, while fighting purely on instinct alone.
Voice:Japanese: Masako Nozawa. English: Sean Schemmel

Ultra Instinct[edit]

Goku (Ultra Instinct) is invulnerable to Ki Blasts while walking forward, starting from frame 4. This is indicated by a short bubble on a successful dodge, similar to 2H against Head attribute attacks. Since it's a walk, Goku can stop and block at any moment, or "cancel" it into other moves. This invulnerability goes away the moment he switches to a different action.

Playstyle[edit]

Playstyle
DBFZ UI Goku Icon.png UI Goku plays an entirely different game than everyone, and puts fear into his opponents with all of his unique abilities.
Pros Cons
  • Autocombo: 5L has an obscene hitbox and range, and 5LL shares that while also ignoring low-hitting attacks.
  • Defense: Difficult to approach and pressure thanks to 22S, 214H, Unrestrained Will, 6H, and his air-OK counter Super that can be used after any of them.
  • Powerful Neutral: Multiple defensive options, counters, and zoning bless him to dominate the screen at will. Autocombo can even snatch aerial opponents.
  • Solid Pressure: A total of three lows, two of which can stagger. 214X heavily encourages conditioning, and can allow UI Goku to continue pressure.
  • Zoning Capabilities: 5S and 2S cover significant parts of the screen from full distance, and also beat superdashes while clashing with other ki blasts.
  • Negates Zoning: Godly Display and 6H instantly close the gap, and 6H can win neutral with the proper read.
  • Unsafe Blockstrings: No specials true-blockstring from any of his normals, and can only safely end with 5M.
  • Resource Hungry: Needs assists or meter to make options safe and maximize tools.
  • Super Moves: Lackluster damage off Supers along with virtually no Okizeme, and also leave UI Goku full-screen.

Inv.The number of frames this attack has invincibility, and what attribute(s) this invincibility applies to.
5L 400 All - 7 - - -9 -
  • Huge range with really good pushback on block, putting Goku out of range of most normals.
  • 5L (blocked) > 2L (whiff) is actually 2 frames better than letting 5L recovers all the way (being -7 instead of -9).

UI Goku doesn't have a 6f button and has to rely on his counters during clashes.

The range on this is not to be understated, most of the cast can't punish UI Goku if he staggers with this despite its frame data due to the pushback. The ones that can punish can still be beaten with spacing. The hitbox is massive, which will lead to this move beating out a lot more than it really should.

5LL 700 All - 14 - - -5 4-17 Low
  • Ground bounces on hit.
  • Tracks horizontally for about half screen.
  • Fastest startup is 26f if done raw.

Because of it's slow speed and low crush, a delayed 5LL can be used as a fake Dragon Rush once the opponent is conditioned to look for a gap after 5L. This move is amazing and it just catches people because of all its weird properties.

5L > 5LL also auto-confirms most of the time due to how high both of these moves hit.

5LLL 300, 800 Throw U3+ 11 - - - -
  • Sides switch on hit.
  • Cancelling into this from a blocked 5LL always leaves the opponent in too much blockstun for the throw to work.

Some low-blockstun assists like Trunks A/Base Vegeta A may allow for tick throws, which can be made into a 50/50 if 2M is used instead of 5LLL. Useful in vanish combos sometimes because of it's side-swap properties.

700, 400 All, Low - 10 - - -5 -
  • Both hits can be jump canceled.
  • Second hit counts toward scaling mid-combo.

The second hit kills your combo damage but is great for blockstrings. Forms a basic mixup between 5M(2) and 5M(1) > 6M. Once you can get them to block, then you can start to use 214L/M.

  • Smash hit has good corner carry, launches more upwards than other 5H's like SBroly's 5H.

This move is a pretty good in neutral due to it's comparably fast startup to other 5H moves.

  • On hit, automatically shoots 3 extra blasts and causes a wall splat. Goku can only cancel the first or the last hit.

Chains from M/H normals will have a 6-frame gap, but the wallsplat makes it a trade in your favor. Off of said trade, you can connect a 5L in the corner.

[1-10 All]
  • Command dodge for everything but throws and Supers.
  • On successful activation, Goku will slide behind the opponent allowing for immediate followups. If the opponent is grounded during the super freeze, he'll stay grounded, and if they're airborne, he'll also become airborne.
  • Air counter recovers faster than ground counter. Counters have 2f of lingering full invul after recovery if you choose to stand still.

Advantage is dependent on what is countered and the distance from it. For example, countering a jab will leave UI Goku neutral at best, but moves with high whiff recovery allow him to go for punishes. In general, anything outside of light normals will give enough time to land an uncontested punish with 5L/2L/j.L. UI Goku can also always defer to block regardless of any attack that was countered. Although this can mean you forfeit neutral if the opponent presses buttons, you can also opt for his multiple invincible options if they do decide to challenge.

  • The spinning portion are strike attacks with very good pushback on block, launches the opponent on hit.
  • Shot Ki Blasts wall splats on hit.

Mostly used in corner combos. Depending on the position, you can get both Ki Blasts to hit which allows for otherwise impossible combo route like midscreen 6S > SD.

  • Goes half screen.
  • Smash hit wall splats.

In a blockstring, 6S > 236L will whiff, allowing for Reflect bait if used in tandem with 6S > 236M.

As a combo ender, DR > 236L > Super will put the opponent back into the corner.

M 1280 All U1+ 28 - - -2 28-35 All

  • Smash hit wall splats.

If used preemptively, the full invul during active and the gigantic range allow this to beat things like beams... Though if it's really a beam then you can just react with 6H and get a full combo punish instead.

On a midscreen hit, the wall splat is long enough for you to add a 5S before Vanishing.

All versions can be used to challenge superdash better than regular normals can, as they can be better in anticipation/reaction due to their start-up and active frames.

  • Soft knockdown.

Used for assist extension. The fast startup also allows it to combo from j.LL2H with autocombo boost.

If you don't have an assist that allows j.LLL > j.214L + Assist, DR due to it being a pop up assist, you can go for j.LL2H > j.236L + Assist, DR instead and it'll deal the same damage.

2H(1) > j.236L is Goku's only gapless blockstring ender, but it's unsafe at -7, so without assists it's better to just do 2H(1) > j.214S.

  • Air version teleports to the ground. When the opponent is in untech time, it will also have reduced startup, better tracking, and will wait till they are in range before attacking.
  • Smash hit causes a sliding knockdown.

At around 2H height and up, non-Smash j.H > j.214L is a guaranteed combo into SKD with a lot of corner carry. Smash j.H > j.214L only works at higher up (due to increased falling speed) and is used for easy assist extensions.

While being +3 on block, 7f 5L/2L means it's equal to +2 with most other characters (they can backdash away from midscreen).

  • Autocorrects if he overshoots the opponent.
  • Air version teleports to the ground.
  • Smash hit switches sides, wall splats.
  • Cannot hit airborne opponents, not even mid-combo.
  • Can combo without meter in the corner.

This is your prime conditioning tool. Once you make them block, use this to make them antsy again so you can frametrap them to death.

Like 236M, connecting this in midscreen gives Goku enough time to add 5S before Vanishing, or even pick up with certain assists. Using against a corner opponent will most likely attack from behind them, so if it lands Goku will go back to facing the corner for a meterless combo.

  • Hits directly in front of Goku.
  • Smash hit causes a crumple state on grounded opponent, wall splats airborne opponent. Non-Smash launches them forward.

Useful for a lot of things. When using Unencumbered Mind, it's a good way to beat out opponents who are ready to 2H you out of it. Can be used as a psudeo-Vanish of sorts during blockstrings due to it costing less meter and having a bigger reward on hit, being able to escape gaps that are larger than 4F.

10f of landing recovery sounds pretty risky... until you realized that Goku recovers in the air and is free to do literally anything to avoid being punished, say for example, using another j.214H. Fun fact: since this move is a hitgrab, despite j.214H version having Head attribute, if it were to trade with a 2H, it'll win.

214X~S is safe on block and even safer against Reflect (-3), have fun with an unpunishable beam.

As a combo ender, DR > 22S > Lv1 is really good for DHC purposes because of its high damage.

  • Homes in on the opponent until frame 20 before punching straight forward. Goku attacks from the direction he was facing after teching.
  • Smash hit causes a sliding knockdown.
  • Works on any ground wakeup, air tech and DR tech. Doesn't work with grounded hitstun and snapback.

Insane tracking, but is super negative on block, cannot call assists, can be anti-air'd on reaction, and can also be safely meatied with lights. So 22S is better to use on the ground if possible.

  • Hits all the way to the top of the screen.
  • Huge amount of hitstun, low amount of blockstun.

While its horizontal tracking (to you) isn't great, its vertical range is unparalleled. Doing things like L Rebellion Spear with Bardock on block is difficult due to where UI Goku teleports in, but the hitstun and height of the hitbox helps characters that struggle to get sliding knockdowns. With proper timing, Trunks can connect j.S > j.236M midscreen as an example.

  • Goes fullscreen.
  • Launches at a very combo-friendly angle.
  • Slower than the average beam assist, comparable to Cell's.

This would've been good if it had the Unencumbered Mind version's projectile invulnerability. Assist A is better in a lot of ways however, leaving this beam assist feeling somewhat underwhelming due to how slow it is for what feels like not that much reward both on block and on hit. There's much better beams in the game, but if you absolutely 100% need a beam assist and do not want to change your team, this is an alright option.

  • Parry super similar to Cooler's Lv3:
  • On parrying strikes, Goku acts instantly and punishes the opponent without any chance of escaping.
  • On parrying projectiles or assists, the counter attack is a throw that grabs both standing and airborne opponents, but not crouching, allowing them to act or even punish him.

Don't think of this as much as a reversal as it is a tool to keep other things safe. Cancelling into this from 22S will catch an opponent punishing you with a strike, but it can also be used to catch a panic vanish after a 6H that puts you airborne (which will happen a lot).
