|“||Jiren is a being who will never lose. No matter who he is up against.||”|
|Epithet||Jiren the Gray (灰色のジレン, Haiiro no Jiren)|
|Game Debut||Super Dragon Ball Heroes|
Jiren is a large muscular extraterrestrial being, who appears with the unique characteristic of having gray-skin and fully black-colored eyes. Jiren is bald and has a snub nose with rugged face with bulging eyebrows formations and a small chin. Being a Pride Trooper, Jiren wears a red and black jumpsuit, with white gloves and boots.
Jiren has displayed relatively little personality of his own, a stark contrast to the rest of the Pride Troopers, all of whom are bombastic to the point of boorishness. What minimal personality he has displayed has shown a business-mindset; he will fight to crush the enemy, but doesn't partake in unnecessary cruelty; on both occasions, he used what he deemed enough force to dominate the enemy and render them unconsciousness or knocked from the arena. At the same time, he appears to have a warrior's spirit, as he waited out Gokū's Genki Dama until it was fully prepared, as he wanted to test Gokū's trump card.
|“||'There is a universe where lives a mortal even a Hakaishin can't defeat.' It appears the rumor is true||”|
—Whis after seeing Jiren's power., DB110
Jiren is the strongest mortal of the 11th Universe, who's strength is Hakaishin level. In combat skill, he's regarded as stronger than Vermoud, and is rumoured to be strong enough that even a Hakaishin can't defeat.
His power is notably immense, and it's been stated that Jiren possesses colossal ki. Using nothing but his ki, which he constructs into some manner of wall, he was able to block a Kamehameha from Son Gokū in his Saiyan Beyond God state. Later, his willpower alone was enough to allow him to bounce back the Seventh Universe Genki Dama: an attack that combined the energy of the 7th Universe Team and Gokū's Twenty-Fold Super Saiyan Blue Kaiōken.
Jiren has tremendous endurance. During the Tournament of Power, he was capable of tanking physical attacks from Gokū in his Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2, and Super Saiyan God transformations without making much of a conscious effort to defend himself. He was only forced to fight seriously after Gokū brought out the power of his Super Saiyan Blue transformation. Afterwards, he quickly proved himself superior to even that level of Super Saiyan power, forcing Gokū to take on his Super Saiyan Blue Kaiōken state. His speed is impressive, as he was able to take to Gokū's back without the latter noticing, despite Gokū being one of the strongest fighters in the 7th Universe.
Against Blue Kaiōken, Jiren proved himself to be faster, even once Gokū pushed his power to twenty fold, knocking the Saiyan out of the state within seconds.
Universe Survival Arc
Main article: Universe Survival Arc Hours before the start of the Tournament of Power, Jiren was training elsewhere in the 11th Universe. Jiren arrives with his fellow Pride Troopers announced as the representatives of his respective universe. Jiren remains calm, as Gokū emerges to confront Toppo challenging to a rematch. Jiren bothered instantly appears behind Son Gokū asking him bluntly to leave.
While the Hakaishin were repairing the Survival Venue, they toss large portions of debris onto the competitors, Jiren was able to dodge with a unique fluidity avoiding each of incoming material.
As the bout begins, Jiren goes on the attack alongside the Pride Troopers.
- Jiren's name originates from the english word range (レンジ, renji), a kitchen appliance designed for the purpose of cooking food, stylized in its native katakana spelling.
- Jiren bears a stark resemblance to the grey aliens, the difference being merely a far more muscular build. This is most likely where his title, Jiren the Gray, is derived.
