- This article is about Goku's version. For other uses, see Ultra Instinct (disambiguation).
This form possesses the same eyes as the standard Ultra Instinct Sign, however unlike the original version of the state, this form does not have to maintain an aura at all times. When it is not doing so the user's hair stays the same as in their base state and they do not possess glowing highlights. When this form has its aura active it is identical in appearance to the original Ultra Instinct Sign, though it lacks the specks of energy/clothing that surround the original form's aura.
Usage and Power
Allowing Goku to fight as he likes and not have to focus on remaining calm and emotionless, this form surpasses Goku's standard usage of Perfected Ultra Instinct. It allowed Goku to slightly surpass Gas with his instincts unleashed, who could stand up to both Perfected Ultra Instinct Goku and Ultra Ego Vegeta fighting together.
During the Granolah the Survivor Saga, Goku achieves this state in battle with Gas by opting for the Sign form over the Perfect form to lessen the emotional compromise that comes with the Perfect form, allowing him to concentrate on besting Gas completely. Goku's new clarity of his nature being more suited to the Sign form allowed him to wield Ultra Instinct to an even higher level than he had in the Perfect form. Vegeta himself noted that Goku's fighting in this form was different to the usual fighting style he used with Ultra Instinct.
While this state allows Goku to fight more effectively and harness Ultra Instinct to a higher level, Goku himself noted that he still did not have long in this form. This indicates, even with his new clarity and control, this form still drains a large amount of energy and that he wouldn't be able to maintain it for long.
