Shueisha has been releasing new chapters of the Dragon Ball Super manga series by artist Toyatarou and series creator Akira Toriyama monthly, and after Chapter 84 was released in May 2022, fans are excited to find out how the next chapter will continue the Granolah the Survivor saga with the release of Chapter 85 this month.
Granolah the Survivor saga is a revenge-driven story of the shonen series about Granolah, the lone survivor of the Cerealian race whose mission is to kill Frieza and avenge the extermination of his race. Goku and Vegeta realize what Saiyan pride is about after seeing Bardock's memory of his battle with Gas in Planet Cerael forty years ago. With Granolah down, it's up to the two Saiyans to take Gas of the Heeter Force down, but will Ultra Instinct Goku and Ultra Ego Vegeta be powerful enough to take him down?

Dragon Ball Super Chapter 85 Spoilers: Will Ultra Ego Vegeta defeat Gas?
In the previous chapter of Dragon Ball Super, titled Pride of the Warrior Race, Goku and Vegeta unleash their most powerful transformations yet in order to stand a chance against Gas. Ultra Instinct Goku and Ultra Ego Vegeta team-up for the first time, giving everything they got to defeat Gas, but the Strongest Warrior in the Universe is able to defend himself against the Saiyan's powerful attacks.
In the final scene of Chapter 84, Vegeta punches Gas hard in his face. Gas wonders what kind of technique he's using and how he is able to move despite his injuries.
Vegeta says that the damage he inflicted on him is like his fuel, and that in other words, he's getting stronger.
Chapter 84's end note says: "It is neither revenge nor atonement. Just with the deisre to win, Vegeta stands!"
On June 13, the official Dragon Ball website released the first preview for Chapter 85, which is titled To Each His Own Answer. As you can see below, the overpowered Gas continues to beat up Vegeta in what appears to be a one-sided battle, but will the Saiyan Prince's Ultra Ego form continue to build strength as he takes more damage?
Twitter user @DBSChronicles shared an English translation of the first draft pages for Chapter 85:
Major spoilers about the entire chapter have been leaked, revealing that Goku will save Vegeta's life by using a shield. He begins to fight Gas, and uses his Ultra Instinct - Sign form (black hair) instead of the mastered form (silver hair), and Goku says that he figured out the best form to use while fighting Gas.
The villain asks him why he transformed this way because he thinks that silver is the strongest, and Goku replies that the perfected Ultra Instinct form requires a calm mind, but his current form allows him to use it with his emotions "as they are".
Goku is able to gain advantage in the battle vs. Gas, but after the Heeters get concerned about Gas losing, Elec reminds Gas of his purpose, and tells him to unlock his full power. Goku sees a huge outburst of power behind Elec, and it looks like Gas has transformed into his most powerful state: old and wrinkly.
