After the Dragon Ball Super series concluded in April, fans are still wondering if Vegeta will also achieve the Ultra Instinct form like Goku did.

During a recent interview with Megumi Ishitani, the director of Dragon Ball Super's finale episode, he talked about Vegeta's Beyond Blue transformation, and his potential to achieve the Ultra Instinct form.

"Vegeta'sevolved version of Blue is an anime original. Like you said, that form is the result of him mastering his strength in a different way than Goku. Strength-wise please think of it as about the same as Goku's Blue Kaio-Ken.
"The following is merely my own personal opinion, but I think Vegeta would never call it quits on his own strength. Being as proud as he is, I doubt he would shut up while Goku has surpassed him with Ultra Instinct."

Ever since Goku defeated Vegeta in the first arc of Dragon Ball Z, Vegeta has been determined to catch up to Goku's levels, and we've seen him eventually achieve new transformations that Goku had first like Super Saiyan 2 and Super Saiyan Blue. Recently, we learned that the upcoming Dragon Ball Super: Broly film will show him transforming into Super Saiyan God for the first time ever in the anime.


"This is the story of a new Saiyan. Earth is peaceful following the Tournament of Power. Realizing that the universes still hold many more strong people yet to see, Goku spends all his days training to reach even greater heights. Then one day, Goku and Vegeta are faced by a Saiyan called 'Broly' who they've never seen before. The Saiyans were supposed to have been almost completely wiped out in the destruction of Planet Vegeta, so what's this one doing on Earth? This encounter between the three Saiyans who have followed completely different destinies turns into a stupendous battle, with even Freeza (back from Hell) getting caught up in the mix."
