VIDEO: Dragon Ball Super’s Spirit Control, Explained

Dragon Ball Super has introduced a number of different powerful abilities since beginning in 2015, but one thing has remained pretty constant: Goku has gotten the lion's share of the new, cool abilities before Vegeta. This has been something of a pattern with the two ever since the latter's introduction in Dragon Ball Z. However, in the Dragon Ball Super manga, Vegeta has finally learned Spirit Control, which means bigs thing for him as a character. In this video, we're going to break down just what Spirit Control is and how Vegeta's use of it may close the gap between him and Goku.

After traveling to Planet Yardrat -- where Goku learned Instant Transmission -- Vegeta learns how to use an ability called Forced Spirit Fission. This ability allows Vegeta to essentially tear apart things that were combined through absorption or fusion. When battling the energy-absorbing Moro, Forced Spirit Fission proved useful for Vegeta, even if it didn't end up winning him the battle. But there's much more to the technique, and that's precisely why it may close the gap between Goku and Vegeta.

Created by Akira Toriyama in 1984, the Dragon Ball franchise is one of anime's most successful properties. Over the decades, the original Dragon Ball manga has received several sequel series, including Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball Super and the non-canon Dragon Ball GT. While there's no indication that the Dragon Ball Super anime will return anytime soon, a new movie in the franchise, subtitled Super Hero, is slated for 2022.
