Twitter is a place where people can post their honest opinions on any subject matter, but it also sparks heavy debates and arguments because of the trend of posting “hot takes”. Anitwt is, by all means, not an exception to this trend, especially with One Piece broadcasting its most ambitious episodes yet.
If you’re on Twitter a lot, then I’m sure you’d come across posts like “Gear 5 is more iconic than Super Saiyan and Ultra Instinct” or “Goku solos Luffy Gear 5” and so forth atleast once.
One anime twitter user @BasedNika decided to conduct a tournament poll, in August 2023, for the Greatest Transformation in anime and manga history.
The user chose 32 forms and pit them randomly against each other one by one.
The 32 forms are:
- Goku Super Saiyan Blue
- Luffy Gear 3
- Ichigo True Bankai
- Goku Super Saiyan
- Gojo Domain Expansion (Not exactly a form but it was there in the poll… for some reason)
- Guts Berserker Armor
- Naruto Sage Mode
- Phos Devine Form
- Luffy Gear 4 Snake Man
- Ichigo Vasto Lorde
- Chainsaw Devil form
- Naruto Sage of Six Path
- Super Saiyan 2
- Gon’s rage mode in HxH
- Usagi (Sailor Moon)
- Shinra Bansho Man
- Goku Super Saiyan 3
- Boruto Borushiki
- Luffy Gear 5
- Asta Devil Union
- Ichigo Final Getsugo Tens
- Johnny Task Act 4
- Naruto Baryon Mode
- Eren Attack Titan
- Goku Super Saiyan 4
- Luffy Gear 4
- Eren Founding Titan
- Giorno GE Requiem
- Mob 100%
- Luffy Gear 2
- Goku Ultra Instinct
- Griffith Femto
Most fans thought Gear 5 Luffy or Goku’s Super Saiyan would win the tournament but to everyone’s surprise, neither took home the trophy.
The surprise winner of the Greatest Transformation in anime and manga tournament is….
Giorno’s Gold Experience Requiem from Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure!
- Gear 5 in the Semi-finals by a 10% margin with a total vote count of 17,424
- Super Saiyan in the finals by a 12% margin with a total vote count of 13,411

One Piece and Dragon Ball fans were livid by the results but Jojo fans were jumping for joy.
Finally, Jojo fans now feel relevant in the discussions.
"In particular, you will not arrive at the reality where Gear 5 or Super Saiyan won"

About Dragon Ball
Dragon Ball is a manga series by Akira Toriyama. It first began its serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 1984. The manga was later adapted into a multitude of animated series, movies, and games.
The franchise consists of five different anime series, about 21 animated movies, and around 10 games spanning various platforms, from Famicon to Playstation and Xbox.
Synopsis of the Dragon Ball anime:
Goku Son is a young boy who lives in the woods all alone—that is, until a girl named Bulma runs into him in her search for a set of magical objects called the “Dragon Balls.”
Since the artefacts are said to grant one wish to whoever collects all seven, Bulma hopes to gather them and wish for a perfect boyfriend.
Goku happens to be in possession of a dragon ball, but unfortunately for Bulma, he refuses to part ways with it, so she makes him a deal: he can tag along on her journey if he lets her borrow the dragon ball’s power.
With that, the two set off on the journey of a lifetime.
