To understand Jiren's full power, one must first understand the unbelievable gap between his Limit Break and his ordinary self.

When Jiren is introduced, he makes quick work of SSBKK, a U7 Spirit Bomb, among other things. At this point Whis already says Jiren surpasses the level of the GoD. I need to point out here that you CANNOT be about the level of a GoD if there are GoD's stronger than you. The whole statement wouldn't make sense. So Jiren is stronger than EVERY GoD, even Beerus. But this was implied already when Belmod, who was called stronger than Beerus, was stated weaker than Jiren.

We also see Jiren shrug off SSBKK Goku and SSBE Vegeta in a 2v1, literally being on the advantage the whole time. SSBE Vegeta was capable of beating GoD Toppo, who is stated to be "no different from a regular GoD". Even if you want to argue that he's the weakest of the GoDs, he is still definitely on their level. Since Vegeta beat him, that means both Goku and Vegeta are on that level. So Jiren was winning against BOTH of these at the same time. He was effectively fending off two Gods of Destruction simultaneously. Now, here's the thing. This whole time Jiren is holding back his full power. Him being above the GoD level, beating GoD-level opponents, all of this happened while his ki was suppressed.

I feel like a huge reason people misunderstand Jiren's characterization and subsequently dismiss it as "bland", "boring", and "generic" is that they don't recognize the meticulously-crafted nuances that give him form. This isn't an insult; newcomers--also known as "casuals" to the more uncouth individuals--are unfamiliar with shonen tropes, and only regurgitate what they perceive as ultimate truths as a result of blind hearsay. Again, this is not meant as an insult: ignorance in and of itself is not an imperfection. It is only when that ignorance germinates and blossoms into WILLFUL ignorance that it becomes detrimental to one's continued existence as a worthwhile member of humanity.

Jiren the Gray transcends the quintessential tropes of a shonen character who lost someone important to him/her and seeks to atone and rise above this tragedy. He does not cleave to his deceased master's teachings as if they are gospel merely because he was unable to safe him; he instead crafted his own ideals, virtues, and motivations in the way he saw as most advantageous in regards to accomplishing his ultimate goal: to utterly, WITHOUT FAIL, espouse his master's teachings. Jiren is not beholden to Gicchin's viewpoints or personal, individual ideals: he instead recognizes that his fallen master would want him to walk his own path, regardless of the possible and probable contradicting vectors their respective moral codes could cross.

This, more than anything else, cements Jiren as his own character--indeed, his own man. He pulled himself up by his bootstraps, using his beloved master's demise not as a crutch, but as a singular motivation to reinforce HIS OWN beliefs, HIS OWN ways of life, while at the same time deftly weaving Gicchin's persona into his own mode of existence.

Jiren is more than a character in a legendarily-influential shonen story that will never be surpassed. He is an ideal. A belief. A way of life.

He is the summit.

No one will ever replicate what CHADren did. He was literally an unstoppable force and immovable object. He was pure, absolute strength. Every technique, every trick and gimmick, every asspull, he was unfazed by. A spirit bomb by SSBKK Goku was easily repelled. Frozen in time? Who cares, he's like, stronger than time. Goku finally asspulls Ultra Instinct, and it does fucking nothing against a barely-even-trying Jiren. Unlocking new power doesn't help, fighting smart doesn't help, he facetanks beams, he beats people up by just looking at them. They unlock new powers, they team up to fight him together, it doesn't fucking matter. Nothing they do can reach his might. No antagonist has ever felt this far above what the protagonists could muster. He was truly a juggernaught.
And Broly? This pencil-necked, bitch mowgli looking fucker gets manhandled by base Vegeta. YAMETE BEJITA-SAMA YOU'RE HURTING MY HANDS! Jesus fucking christ. Oh, but he grows stronger while fighting! That makes it okay. Oh wait, he STILL gets blown the fuck out, shitstomped by Gogeta to the point he has to get RESCUED by his bitch, trembling with FEAR.

Some anime is art but not very much, it's rare and most is shit
Some films are art but not very many, it's rare and most is shit
85% of everything is pure garbage. Another 14% is mediocre.
