Spoilers will be talked about below, so please be sure to watch the latest episode before reading on! This review is based off of the dub version of Super that currently airs on Toonami.
After the erasure of Universe 2 and 6 from the Tournament of Power, only four universes remained with Universe 7, 3, 11 and 4. And with less then 15 minutes to go, it’s becoming a mad dash to be the last universe standing as Universe 7 and 4 go at it. Which of the two was left standing and did another universe meet their demise in Episode 119? Lets get right on into the review and find out!
We pick up where we left off last week with Vegeta in a pissed off mood fighting against that Super Sentai fighter from Universe 3. It’s a legit boxing match as that’s all they’re doing, throwing punches everywhere. Well, that is until the Super Sentai fighter gets too close to the edge and get’s knocked out by an unseen opponent.
From here things get serious as everyone from Universe 7 are on edge trying to find and fight that unseen opponent. First Vegeta almost get’s knocked off, but he saves himself. Then Gohan gets tossed out of the ring, but Piccolo grabs him before it’s too late. Then 18 gets hit with a string of punches. Eventually it’s discovered that the fighter is indeed invisible 100% and the only way they can ever find him is if they used the environment. So Piccolo uses a smoke screen attack to make the fighter slightly visible again. With that they easily toss him out and Universe 4 is down a fighter.
But Universe 4 is still not done and another fighter creates a red barrier around all of Universe 7 that summons these shadow creatures, who look strangely like the other perished fighters of the tournament. Universe 7 tries to punch and kick they’re way through but they cant, since everything goes through them. Gohan deduces that it’s just an illusion and that the real fighter is somewhere. Goku then finds them, it was a tiny little guy with zero fighting skills, and smacks them out of the tournament. Universe 4 drops down to just one more fighter left.
The last fighter is at first presumed to be invisible as well, but this turns out into a costly misjudgment by Piccolo who is actually eliminated from the tournament! This last fighter of Universe 4, is not invisible but instead is actually an insect and no bigger then a finger. At first everyone is having a hard time trying to hit him and at the same time they don’t want to kill him either. Eventually it’s up to Goku and 17, where Goku starts punching the ground to prevent the little guy from landing and jumping around while 17 shoots a barrier ball at the guy to trap him. From there, 17 flings him off the stage and eliminates Universe 4 for good, leaving only Universes 3, 7 and 11 left as we reach 12 minutes left.
It was a super straightforward episode this week as we hurried across and tried to get rid of another universe that didn’t mean much in the grand scheme of things. Obviously with how things are playing out we’re going to get that Ultra Instinct Goku vs Jiren rematch eventually for the final few episodes. The only big shocker of the episode though was the fact that Piccolo got so easily eliminated by the tinniest fighter in the tournament. I was expecting 18 or Gohan to be eliminated from out of no where randomly and not Piccolo. Another interesting tidbit of the episodes is the fact that Valdos is sitting in the stands with Whis and the others now that Universe 6 is gone, so far she’s the only Angel who’s shown a bit of personality and sympathy with the lost of her universe compared to the others sitting by themselves.
Anyway, I wonder what other dramatic twist and turns the next 12 minutes of the tournament will bring? Till next time!
