Dragon Ball Super Moro Arc Could End:
Dragon Ball Super has done a rather splendid job with its Moro arc. Moro, an unbeatable ancient sorcerer, has the power to absorb energy from entire planets at a time and add on to his power. Not even Goku with his Ultra Instinct powers or Vegeta with his Super Saiyan Evolved power, has found a breakthrough. Moro is currently winning the fight against Goku all thanks to his magic. Vegeta is still yet to enter the fight. With each passing chapter of the Dragon Ball Super manga, Moro looks more and more unbearable. But there has to be an end somewhere. And we might have some ways in which the Moro Arc could end.
Vegeta defeats Moro by himself
This one could be the game-changer for all Dragon Ball fans. We think it is safe to say that there are more Vegeta fans than fans of Goku in the Dragon Ball Universe. People love an underdog and Vegeta has been the greatest underdog in the history of the anime industry. In the Tournament of Power, he finally let go of his desire to master Ultra Instinct – something fans watched teary-eyed, only to master Super Saiyan Blue Evolved – the final Super Saiyan Blue form. Vegeta has always lived under Goku’s shadow for all this time. We believe it is about time he gets his moment to shine brighter than Goku.
Currently, he is on the Planet of Yardrat, where he is learning the ancient technique of Spirit Control. The Ki Control technique allows for several additional techniques like cloning, healing, and even size alteration. Goku is finding it near impossible to defeat Moro with his Ultra Instinct Sign. But Vegeta’s Ki Control powers just might do the trick.
Spirit Control could be the wild card here because of its highly differentiating factor. It is unique and unlike anything, the Z Fighters have in their arsenal. The number of techniques it grants and the variety of skills it gives the user access to is something that should not be taken lightly. From what we have seen up until now in Goku’s fight with Moro, Power alone is not enough since Moro has a complete advantage there. If he gets weaker, he can just absorb energy from others like a walking spirit bomb. To defeat Moro you require a different skill-set that does not just bank on power. That is where Vegeta might be able to make a dent.
Goku and Vegeta team up to defeat Moro
This might be the most likely scenario. And that is why we would not be too sure to put all our cards on this one. It has happened in the past. Goku and Vegeta have joined forces to defeat a common enemy. Vegeta has had to swallow his pride and fight alongside his rival a lot of times in the past starting from the arcs of Dragon Ball Z. Moro is an enemy that neither Goku nor Vegeta might be able to defeat on their own. They might need to work together to end this.
The very reason Goku and Vegeta parted ways was that Vegeta wanted to gain more power on his own rather than relying on Goku to save his tail every now and then. He had some terrific upgrades as a warrior in the Tournament of Power but all of that was for naught since Goku achieved Ultra Instinct and changed the game entirely. Right now his Spirit Control techniques might look and sound potent but just like every other arc Akira Toriyama writes, this one would also end up with Goku helping Vegeta defeat Moro.
Vegeta has never been a team player but after fighting alongside the Z Fighters for so long, he is no longer a lone wolf either. Granted he will be a totally new person when he arrives on the battlefield to fight Moro, he would be more than willing to help Goku in saving Erath and the rest of the Universe from Moro’s wrath.
This might sound a little farfetched. But it is completely plausible. It is for the first time that a Dragon Ball arc has not relied on the Saiyans going Super Saiyan to save the day. There has been more focus on supporting characters like Krillin, Master Roshi, Yamcha, and Tien. Dragon Ball Super’s Moro arc is breaking stereotype after stereotype. When the Dragon Ball Super arc began, Beerus showed up to reveal that he wants to destroy Earth and Goku cannot do anything about it since against a God of Destruction, he is pretty much powerless.
Beerus was the first villain to actually defeat Goku in single combat with Goku never asking for a rematch. It was the first fight where we realize that there are beings way more powerful than even Goku. Moro could be the next guy to fall into that category. He has the power to absorb limitless energy from any source available – living or non-living. This would add to his power and make him stronger.
He can even steal energy from the enemies he can fight. So the stronger Goku gets, the easier it is for Moro to steal more energy from him and become more powerful. A villain like that will have a hard time being pinned down and pushed to a corner. If Moo wins, this would signal a twist ending for Dragon Ball. What happens next in the Dragon Ball Universe will be left to the whims of a cliff-hangar. And that does sound very intriguing to us.
Moro is defeated but Super Saiyans become extinct
And when we say Super Saiyans go extinct, we do not mean that Goku, Vegeta, and the rest of the Saiyans die. What we do mean is that the power of a Super Saiyan is no longer applicable in future Dragon Ball storylines. Moro’s ability to siphon power from the Z Fighters might have a larger role to play. To decrease the writer’s reliance on the Super Saiyans, Akira Toriyama might use Moro’s energy stealing ability to permanently rob Goku Vegeta and the rest of the Super Saiyans of their ability to transform into one. This would eventually lead to more focus on an evening out playing field where the Z Fighters do not just use the Super Saiyans as a Deus Ex Machina to get out of every fix and have to use their wits and skills to solve any problem from then on.
The Moro arc has had an increasing focus on supporting characters. Dragon Ball Super, in general, has expanded the Dragon Ball Universe. The horizons are extending. The only thing that is limiting the anime and manga from exploring things further is the Sup[er Saiyan transformation. Dragon Ball needs to look beyond that. Now that the focus is on Goku’s Ultra Instinct and Vegeta’s Super Saiyan Blue Evolved and his Spirit Control technique, Dragon Ball Super just might help the manga get out of its Super Saiyan Shell. Moro might be the bane that finally ends the saga of the Super Saiyans and leads to different, unique story arcs in the future that do not rely on this legendary transformation to save the day.
Goku Master Ultra Instinct
We pray that this is now how the Moro arc ends because it is the most obvious and predictable way it ever could. Goku is currently only at the stage of Ultra Instinct Sign – which is the initial gateway to Mastering Ultra Instinct. Throughout his fight, fans believe that Goku might be just pushing his limits as he did with Jiren till he masters Ultra Instinct for the better. It would be the most expected way in which Goku defeats Moro. The fans will like watching Goku finally master Ultra Instinct but they will hate this arc for ending so poorly.
The last Dragon Ball arc to have been featured in the Manga is the Galactic Patrol Prisoner Saga. Released in the year 2018, the Manga is still on-going and again sees the Dragon Ball Universe in grave danger from an ancient enemy that has broken free of its prison. The official synopsis for the arc reads:
Galactic Patrol Kidnapping. Following the ordeal surrounding Broly, Goku trains with Vegeta in the Gravity Training Room. … Vegeta asks why he needs Buu and Merus explains that a dangerous criminal has broken free of the Galactic Prison and in order to recapture him they need the assistance of the Grand Supreme Kai.
