"I'm gonna finish this right now."
— Goku in "Signs of a Turnabout! The Autonomous Ultra Instinct Erupts!"

Instinctive Reprisal[1] is a more powerful variant of the Kamehameha invented and used by Goku while utilizing the incomplete state of Autonomous Ultra Instinct during the Tournament of Power.

The Instinctive Reprisal is effectively a Kamehameha wave performed with much more energy output and force than even a God Kamehameha. Much like its original version, it can be manipulated to the user's advantage, such as sliding along an incoming blast to close the gap or quickly converting the energy into a defensive barrier.

Usage and Power

Goku used this attack while in his incomplete state of Autonomous Ultra Instinct to defeat Kefla during the Tournament of Power after she attempted to defeat him with her Ray Blast and Gigantic Burst, claiming he was unable to dodge the blast in midair. By flipping in the air and sliding the Kamehameha energy sphere on top of the Gigantic Burst, Goku was able to close the distance between them and unleash the Instinctive Reprisal point-blank, sending her flying off the stage and forcefully shattering the Potara, eliminating her (and by effect, Caulifla and Kale together).

Later during the Tournament, Goku uses Instinctive Reprisal in his battle against Jiren, although it is negated by a concentrated Power Impact, enabling Jiren to blast Goku away, but he managed to use the energy of his Kamehameha as an energy shield to reduce the strength of Jiren's blast.
