Can Gear 5 Luffy beat Ultra Instinct Goku?

When a hero like Luffy from One Piece gets a power-up, like Gear 5 Luffy, it starts a long conversation. Fans of One Piece and Dragon Ball Super have fought before, but this one has been going on for a long time and hasn’t really stopped since Gear 5 Luffy was first featured in the manga for One Piece.

People have called Ultra Instinct Goku “the new god” of shonen anime and “the top of power scaling” in the same way. Both sides have a lot of proof that they are right. Many things show that Gear 5 Luffy is better than Ultra Instinct Goku. This piece will show that the word “stronger” can mean many different things.

Luffy Gear 5 vs. Goku Ultra Instinct- Who Would Win?

Even though Luffy’s Gear 5 is the strongest power-up in the world of One Piece, it can’t beat Goku UI right now. Goku took a long time to figure out how to use Ultra Instinct. Second, he beat Jiren, who is thought to be the best person in the world.

Gear 5 Luffy is strong, but he is not as strong as Jiren. How can he beat someone who is stronger than Jiren if he isn’t stronger than Jiren? Goku has also learned his way, so he doesn’t get tired even after a few hours of using UI. But when the time limit for Gear 5 is up, Luffy starts to feel tired.

Can Gear 5 Luffy beat Ultra Instinct Goku?

So, Luffy has no choice but to stop fighting as soon as he can. We’re not saying that Luffy will never be able to beat Goku’s UI, though. Before he can fight someone as strong as Goku’s Mastered UI version, he just needs to learn how to use it.

Ultra Instinct is said to be a godlike power that makes the person fight better even though they are still awake in their minds. Ultra Instinct is the strongest power in the Dragon Ball universe. In fact, whoever masters it becomes stronger than Super Saiyan Blue, which is the strongest Saiyan. Beerus was surprised when Goku first got the UI skills, because not even gods had been able to get that power-up before. Beerus tried to learn how to do it for a long time, but he couldn’t.


In the world of Dragon Ball, Beerus is the God of Destruction. He can destroy the whole universe with just a snap of his fingers. He tried to learn Ultra Instinct like Goku did, but he couldn’t. This shows that after Goku has learned Ultra Instinct, he is even stronger than Beerus.

Goku went up against the powerful alien Jiren and knocked him down without even getting hot. This showed how good UI was. Because he was so strong, even the Gods in Jiren’s world were afraid of him. The fact that Goku was able to control Jiren shows how strong Saiyans are. Goku was able to beat Jiren when he was in his UI form because he could use big attacks and shields.
