"You two are still thinking before you move rather than just moving. I'm afraid this habit is especially strong with you, Vegeta. This overthinking is limiting your fighting speed. Messages can only travel through your nervous system so fast. When you rely on thoughts for physical action, you lose precious fighting time. (...) Your end goal should be to master the ability to have each part of your body move independently of the other parts. But I admit this is exceedingly difficult; In fact, not even Lord Beerus has mastered it, and he's a god."
― Whis to Son Goku and Vegeta (Dragon Ball Super)

The ability to possess extraordinary automatic reflexes. Sub-power of Autopilot. Advanced form of Enhanced Reflexes.

Also Called

  • Adaptive Superhuman Reflexes
  • Automatic Reflexes
  • Instinctive Reaction
  • Ultra Instinct (Dragon Ball Super)

Capabilities

The user possesses extraordinary reflexes that are entirely involuntary. Due to this, they can be used to attack and counter instead of for just defensive purposes. They can flawlessly coordinate their movements, automatically achieving maximum efficiency in any action.

Because the user's body moves without the use of their brain they are free to strategize and can dodge a wider variety of attacks. The reflexes can enhance the user's physical speed beyond their norm.

Applications

Associations

Limitations

  • May be tricked into hurting themselves because they're acting on reflex.
  • Being involuntary actions, user can be "led" by any opponent capable of learning and predicting their reflexes.
  • Still vulnerable to feints and illusions as these reflexes still rely on users perception. May in fact be more vulnerable due to said involuntary movement reacting to any perceived threat.
  • Users of Enhanced Speed/Supernatural Speed may be too quick for the user to evade.
  • May require more stamina than normal reflex.
