Dragon Ball is undoubtedly one of the most beloved manga and anime series. 

A global audience still enjoys the story of Son Goku’s adventures and travels in the fantasy world created and imagined by Akira Toriyama. 

There are many concepts in Dragon Ball that are crucial to its success and understanding.

One of these concepts is the Super Sayian levels that certain characters can transform into.

We have identified 17 Super Sayian levels within the franchise.

This article will provide a list. This list will include all Super Sayian levels, ranked in order of strength to weakness, as they were identified in the franchise.

Super Saiyan Levels Ranked

1. Pseudo Super Saiyan

Debut: Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug

Pseudo Super Saiyan

Appearance

This form does not show the user’s pupils or iris. Their body appears to bulge a bit, their hair almost straightens and their skin colour is yellow.

However, there is not much else to notice except a reddish tint to their hair due to the reflection of the yellow aura, which the black hair does not have the colour red.

It is not clear if this is a part of the actual shape. The film’s dark lighting can make it difficult to determine if the user is seeing the same thing. 

A yellowish aura wave is received by the user, which is almost identical to a Super Saiyan aura. However, it sometimes contains white ki waves.

Power and usage

The PseudoSuper Saiyan form provides a significant power boost, sufficient to allow Goku, who had been easily defeated by Slug before, to quickly overwhelm him. 

King Kai implies that even this state will not be able to defeat Great Namekian Spider.

Goku’s strength quickly began to deteriorate during the battle against Lord Slug. Goku was left with no other options and his anger rose.

He gained a huge power boost, which enabled him to manifest his Super Saiyan powers. This made him a Super Saiyan enough to overwhelm Slug. This was still the Pseudo Super Saiyan.

After a while, the form began to fade. More specifically, Goku seemed like he was back to his normal self after Slug took his arm off and rebuilt it. 

This could indicate that Goku was not in his normal state of mind as evidenced by his pupilless eyes and erratic attacks. 

Its power and Goku’s behaviour led King Kai to mistakenly identify it as the Super Saiyan form, possibly because it matched the legend.

2. Super Saiyan

Debut: “Life or Death” manga / “Transformed At Last” anime

Appearance

The most striking physical change is the Saiyan’s hair turning golden blonde. It appears as if it is standing on its own, giving it an ethereal, flame-like appearance. 

This is true for all Saiyans, except the tail. Due to the light and energy of the golden aura, the natural eye colour will change to greenish-blue. The muscle tone and skin tone become clearer.

The body’s natural floodgates open with the transformation. Excess energy radiates from the body as a glowing, flame-like aura. 

Saiyan’s personality changes noticeably, becoming more aggressive and more prone to acting spontaneously. You can see that a Saiyan character who is bald will be given a mohawk with golden hair in Dragon Ball Online.

Power and usage

The physical changes are not dramatic, but there is an increase in power output. Akira Toriyama stated in the manga that the manga’s shape should be 10 times the size of Goku. 

The shape in Daizenshuu 7 is supposed to increase the Saiyajin’s proficiency by 50x, which Toriyama considered exaggerated.

Dragon Ball Z: The Anime Adventure Game’s multiplier for forms is 2.5 times normal performance. This is rare when the multiplier is precisely defined. 

In Dragon Ball GT, the shape multiplier appears to have changed. The mutant machine that Goku uses to defeat General Rilldo in Super Saiyan indicates that Goku has a strength just above twice his base form.

This is in contrast to previous guides which only referred to a 50-fold performance increase.

After witnessing Frieza’s death of Krillin, Goku was able to transform into this form. Goku’s power in this form is far greater than that of the evil alien dictator.

This is made more impressive by the fact Goku couldn’t keep up with Frieza before the transformation. Even with Kaio Ken multiplying his power 20 times, Goku was unable to keep up. 

This indicates that the transformation increases the user’s power by well beyond 20.

Frieza used 100% (of which only half) of his strength to stop Goku’s 20-times multiplied by the Kaio-ken Kamehameha attack. He appeared to have the upper hand, while Goku was holding back.

However, he begins to lose confidence as he realizes that his attacks are not debilitating and Goku is simply putting up his best fights. 

This is because Frieza, in his final 100% state, had not only gained strength and speed but also had increased his energy to the point that his body was unable to withstand the force he controlled.

3. Super Saiyan Second Grade

Debut: “Beyond the Super Saiyan (manga), / “Super Vegeta (anime).

Super Saiyan Second Grade

Appearance

This stage is very similar to the Super Saiyan standard form, but with some subtle differences. The golden, flowing hair becomes stiffer and paler. 

The user’s muscle mass increases but not enough to make them less mobile or to weigh them down. This allows the Saiyan maintains his coordination and agility. 

The muscle buildup causes the Saiyan to have a ripped jacket. Future Trunks transformed into shape during the fight against Broly shows this.

The aura grows in size and becomes more jagged. This is often accompanied by a bioelectrical release during transformation or preparation for a major attack such as the Final Flash. 

The initial transformation’s aggressive and ruthless behaviour is magnified. Any control over emotions that are evoked by the Super Saiyan transformation becomes impossible.

In addition, the energy required to maintain it is noticeably higher than the regular Super Saiyan state. This reduces its effectiveness. This deficit forced Goku and Vegeta, along with Trunks, into abandoning the form.

Power and usage

During training in the Hyperbolic Tim Chamber, Vegeta and Future Trunks reached Super Saiyan second grade. Vegeta took two months to complete the transformation. 

Vegeta used this state to defeat Cell in its semi-perfect condition, thanks to his ability to absorb Android 17. This form was achieved instantly by Goku in the Hyperbolic Tim Chamber. Future Trunks also had this form.

This ability was demonstrated to Gohan by him before he converted to the Super Saiyan Third Grade. He soon realized the flaws of these forms. 

The anime was the only time that the second-grade Super Saiyan form appeared to return when Vegeta, Future Trunks and the Cell Juniors battled them.

In the manga, Vegeta, Future Trunks and Vegeta were regular Super Saiyans, but in anime, they had enlarged muscles at multiple points. His strength was not enough to defeat the miniature clones, at least for a brief time.

They were however relieved by Gohan, in his Super Saiyan 2 status, who defeated every Cell Junior with ease. 

Two Dragon Ball Z films also featured the second grade Super Saiyan form: Dragon Ball Z: Broly-The Legendary Super Saiyan, and Dragon Ball Z Z: Bojack Unbound.

These forms were used by Vegeta as well as Future Trunks in their respective conflicts. This form briefly appears in Dragon Ball Super, when Future Trunks recalls Vegeta’s training in the hyperbolic time chamber. Future Trunks are impressed when Vegeta displays his newly transformed form.

4. Super Saiyan Third Grade

Debut: “Trunks Steps In” (manga) / “Trunks Ascends” (anime)

Super Saiyan Third Grade

Appearance

The Saiyan at this stage looks very similar to the Super Saiyan shape but is smaller. Due to increased blood flow, the Saiyan’s skin may turn a little darker and make it difficult to move. 

The Saiyan’s hair grows larger, spikier and in different directions. The aura does not flow upwards anymore but is reflected outwards.

Bioelectricity fluctuations are more frequent and more clear. Sometimes, the transformation causes the temporary disappearance of the pupils or iris.

The difference between the forms is notable. However, unlike the Super Saiyan state, Super Saiyan Third grade maintains the user’s size after puffing.

This is particularly evident with Future Trunks. After accessing the form, Cell was approximately the same height as before he transformed.

But, with Broly transforming, Broly was significantly taller than Cell and much larger than any of his Saiyan counterparts.

Caulifla’s version of the Saiyan is slightly smaller than that of male Saiyans. However, she still displays a strong, muscular, female physique with an hourglass figure, and pronounced abs.

These traits would likely be similar to female Saiyans who are in third-grade Super Saiyan forms. Caulifla’s form is slightly lighter than that of a male Saiyanjins.

However, their muscles are still strong enough to affect their movements. This shows that even though they have less muscle mass than men, the increase in their mass can still cause problems for female Saiyajins.

Power and usage

A source claims that the Super Saiyan Third Grade form of Super Saiyan 2 is weaker than Super Saiyan 2.

However, another source says that Super Saiyan Third Grade forms are ten times more powerful than the former form. The user is however slowed down. 

This form increases the Super Saiyan’s power to the limit. Future Trunks believed he had defeated his father Vegeta in strength and switched to his Super Saiyan third grade form to defeat Perfect Cell right after Vegeta was defeated.

He held his ground and Cell admitted that Trunks had outsold him in sheer strength. However, Future Trunks couldn’t defeat Cell because he couldn’t match his speed. 

Future Trunks was not experienced with these transformations and did not realize his bulky body would impact his fighting ability.

This trait was later noticed by Cell and Goku. Cell informed Future Trunks that Vegeta also knew about this disadvantage and Vegeta didn’t use the Grade 3 Super Saiyan Form.

It takes a lot of effort and force to move the muscles due to their weight. This form can cause fatigue very quickly. 

Trunks might have used the Dragon Ball Super form to suggest that it was stronger than Super Saiyan 2. 

Vegeta believes that Trunks tried to bridge the power gap between Father, and son by using Dragon Ball Super’s form.

5. Super Saiyan Full Power

Debut: “The Emergence (manga), / “Meet Me in the Ring (anime).

Super Saiyan Full Power

Appearance

It is still basically the Super Saiyan shape. The form can be used as a natural state so that the user’s eyes, facial features, and emotions can relax and even become happy. 

Their aura also changes, which decreases the radiant energy in tandem. This is visible by their aura changing into a steady stream of waves instead of rapid bursts. 

It is still the first Super Saiyan grade, so the basic traits remain unchanged. In anime, the user’s hair is often depicted as yellowish-white rather than the yellow-gold of a regular Super Saiyan.

The Super Saiyan can become less sensitive to the effects of transformation by training themselves to stay transformed for longer periods

They can control their wild emotions and remain focused. This results in a more strategic fighting style, pattern of thinking and reduced ki consumption. 

They can use their energy for other important tasks in combat while remaining relaxed or just doing their daily tasks.

Power and usage

This form can push the Super Saiyan’s power to the limits and surpass the Super Saiyan’s power limits. One source claims that this form has a power equivalent to Super Saiyan Third Grade but without any drawbacks. 

Goku was the one to come up with the idea to bring the Super Saiyan form into a natural state in Hyperbolic Time Chamber. He explains that they must get rid of the feeling of instability and restlessness.

Although other Saiyans were not mentioned in the series, it seems that they did attain this mastery later. Future Trunks was able to attain this form when he confronted Future Cell. 

Both Goten and Trunks were able to achieve Super Saiyan forms and seem to have done so at an early age. Gohan had to confront some bank robbers when he enrolled at Orange Star High School

He became a Super Saiyan to hide his identity and was awarded the title of Gold Fighter. He had to confront another gang of robbers on his first day at high school and transform himself into a Super Saiyan. 

He heard his classmates talking about the mysterious gold fighter that resembled him and decided to use Super Saiyan as a disguise.

Gotenks, a fusion of Goten, Trunks and Goten, was seen in Dragon Ball Z. It quickly gained the ability to transform into Super Saiyan 2 or 3 and a master Super Saiyan. 

Caulifla, meanwhile, was able to manifest the Super Saiyan form in Dragon Ball Super for the first time. He also managed to remain calm to attain Super Saiyan 2 anime. 

Cabba also reached Super Saiyan 2, which indicates that he has mastered Super Saiyan. Goku and Gohan use this form in Dragon Ball Z Broly – Legendary Super Saiyan. It is still seen in all of the Dragon Ball films, including Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon.

6. Super Saiyan 2

Debut: “Gohan unleashed” (manga), / “Cell Juniors Attack!”! (anime).

Super Saiyan 2

Appearance

The original transformation makes the hair look even spikier, and it stands up better. Some users, such as Gohan, Vegito and Bardock, have their bangs blend in with the rest. 

The aura takes on a more violent, jagged appearance due to increased energy radiation. The aura pulses at a higher frequency because the energy output and radiation are higher than those of a Super Saiyajin.

Although the muscle mass is not increased, the energy output is more than the regular Super Saiyan transform. 

This allows the Saiyan to use more of its increased energy reserves immediately, allowing for greater energy attacks and avoiding exhaustion later. 

The speed increases proportionally to the Super Saiyan Third Grade, which is characterized by a swelling of the muscles that causes the user to be impeded.

The aura of electric discharge is another notable characteristic of the Dragon Ball Z shape as seen in the images of the manga and some scenes from the show. 

The body is surrounded by lots of electrical sparks, usually blue in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 or Dragon Ball Heroes. 

However, they are not always present (especially in anime) and occasionally appear on super-charged Super Saiyans (like Vegeta). This causes some viewers to confuse the Super Saiyan with a confused Super Saiyan.

Future Trunks’ hair in Dragon Ball Super as Super Saiyan 2 is the same as his Super Saiyan 2 in the anime. This trait was also carried over to Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 His hair becomes spikier in the manga version. 

Gogeta’s Super Saiyan 2 in Dragon Ball Heroes is quite different to his Super Saiyan version. It is easier to see the differences between the two hairstyles.

Vegito’s Super Saiyan 2 looks the same as the one from Gohan. Super Saiyan 2 is the same prickly version as Xeno Trunks. Bardock’s Super Saiyan 2 form is the most distinctive because it has the hair like a regular Super Saiyan.

It has been fixed for Xeno Barrock who has two side bangs. One of them is longer in the middle. Future Trunks Super Saiyan 2 in the manga Dragon Ball Super looks very similar to his Super Saiyan form, except for the two thin bangs which frame his forehead and then disappear. 

Cauliflas Super Saiyan 2 points her hair up while leaving the lower portion hanging over her shoulders. Bangs are separate from one another, with one on each side and one in between, much like Goku’s Super Saiyan 2 shape.

Power and usage

Zamasu claims that the form enhances the user’s power by ten times more than the basic Saiyan state. Some guides claim that the Super Saiyan 2 form is twice as powerful as the original Super Saiyan. 

Goku claims that Gohan transformed into this form technically during his training in Hyperbolic Time Chamber.

Gohan was too tired to keep himself fit when he first transformed. Goku was aware of this power long before Gohan transformed into it in his fight against Cell. This is also why Goku decided to defeat Cell by transforming Gohan.

After witnessing the attack of Cell Juniors on the Dragon Team, and the death by Cell, Android 16 and Gohan respectively, Gohan’s first Super Saiyan 2 form was achieved. 

Cell, who had self-destruction, also obtained the Super Saiyan 2 form, which is now known as the “Super Perfect Form”. 

The Super Saiyan 2 form’s power is far greater than that of the Super Saiyan and Super Saiyan Second Grade. Perfect Cell and Bojack were both able to dominate the second-grade Super Saiyan forms.

They were also stronger than the Super Saiyan powers without full access. Bojack and Perfect Cell were easily killed by Gohan in his Super Saiyan 2 Form.

Gohan, however, was able to easily defeat the Cell Juniors with single blows, even though he was fighting in Super Saiyan 2 form. 

Gohan continued fighting, inflicting severe injuries on Perfect Cell with only two strikes, even though the android unleashed its full potential. 

Gohan was unable to fight in the Kamehameha against Super Perfect Cell match. He broke his left arm in the attack by Super Perfect Cell and was defending Vegeta.

The explosion claimed to have reduced Gohan’s performance to half of its normal level. However, the manga implied that Cell didn’t put all his power into the explosion. Gohan was able to defeat Super Perfect Cell with the help of Vegeta and Goku.

7. Legendary Super Saiyan

Debut: Dragon Ball Z Broly – The Legendary Saiyan

Legendary Super Saiyan

Appearance

The Legendary Super Saiyan’s appearance is quite different from regular Super Saiyan forms. Dragon Ball Z: Broly, The Legendary Super Saiyan’s hair colour is yellowish-green. 

Broly’s hair changes from a green to a golden colour when it reaches its maximum strength. This is the form Bio-Broly has always had golden hair.

In other iterations, Kale’s Super Saiyan shape, and Broly’s Legendary Super Saiyan, initially had golden hair that looked like a Super Saiyan. 

Kale, when transformed into the Legendary Super Saiyan (and his higher level in anime), her hair becomes solid green while her eyebrows remain yellow as regular Super Saiyans. 

Broly from Dragon Ball Super: Broly’s Full Power Super Saiyan form gives his hair and eyebrows a light green colour, which indicates that each user has a different shade.

The full-colour manga features the Broly form with full strength golden hair. This is the same as an ordinary Super Saiyan, but slightly darker in the coloured manga.

The most striking difference between the legendary Super Saiyan’s shape and the regular Super Saiyan’s is the height. 

This transformation gives the Saiyan a taller body and increases his muscle mass, giving him the appearance of a third-grade Super Saiyan. 

This final form of Super Saiyan is more height-enhancing than the third-grade Super Saiyan. Broly is three meters tall.

Power and usage

This form is first awakened in intense sadness. Broly becomes a Super Saiyan in Dragon Ball Super: Broly while still in his Wrath State. 

Kale does not need the Wrath State to become Super Saiyan. This could be because the Saiyans from Universe 6 has evolved to not have the power of great apes or because the Wrath Form doesn’t require him to become Super Saiyan. 

Cabba and Caulifla noted that this form is also known as the demon Saiyan, who rages and grows in power until he eventually kills it. If this is true, the transformations can’t be used for long periods without risking death.

This form is an extreme example of a power-based transformation. It can be easily circumvented despite its speed. 

The form can cause serious health problems, which will result in a dramatic drop in performance and speed. The Legendary Super Saiyan Formula is an activated form of the original Super Saiyan Formula. 

The user can return to their previous form if they take enough damage. Although it is very similar to the third-grade Super Saiyan of the same speed, unlike the Third Grade, Legendary Super Saiyan is “ultra top-notch” in its speed. 

This is how Broly managed to easily dodge both Piccolo and Goku with several manoeuvres. The form also has a noticeable increase in height, which is not the case with Super Saiyan Third Grade.

Although this shape does not seem to increase strength, it is stronger than an ordinary Super Saiyan and weaker than Super Saiyan 2. Broly’s strength, speed and power increase dramatically in this form.

This is more than the Dragon Team could have achieved at the time they faced him. Piccolo explained that Broly can feel his ki from Kami’s vantage point because of the way he is so strong in this form. 

Broly was able to deliver powerful attacks and not flinch, making him at least twice the strength of Z-fighters that he faced. 

V-Jump reports that Broly’s power in this form during the battle against Z-fighters from the new planet Vegeta was approximately 1,400,000,000.

8. Super Saiyan 3

Debut: “Super Saiyan Level 3!” !” (manga) / “Super Saiyan 3? !” (anime)

Super Saiyan 3

Appearance

There are profound changes to the physical appearance of the transformation. The transformation’s most prominent feature is the user’s hair.

The stiff hair in the Super Saiyan 2 state is transformed into flowing, sleek hair that falls to the waist or sometimes even beyond (unless the user is bald). 

Users with hip-length hair already in the basic form will notice an extension of the hair under their feet.

Super Saiyan 3’s hair colour remains golden blonde, but it takes on a deeper and more yellowish shade of gold than previous Super Saiyan shapes. These were a paler gold shade when not surrounded with an aura. 

The eyebrows are completely gone, which makes the forehead and edges of the eyes look larger. A prominent forehead crest is visible. 

These characteristics do not apply to female Super Saiyan. This shape is not recommended for use by an evil Saiyan such as Cumber.

There is a slight increase in muscle mass and a sharply defined muscle tone. This form can also cause a loss of voice. 

The aura vibrates at a very high frequency and almost appears static. Super Saiyan 2’s aura has a higher sound quality than the Super Saiyan 2. 

As in Super Saiyan 2, the electrical discharge remains constant and can extend further from the body than ever before.

The transformation does not affect the personality. A notable change in this state is the “glow” that the user experiences when their skin and clothes are lighter, but not as much as the colour change of this form.

Power and usage

This shape draws strength from every drop of blood and uses all the potential of a Saiyajin. The shape is a challenge to the user’s hidden power, but it also consumes a lot of energy. 

The Super Saiyan 3 shape provides four times the power of the Super Saiyan 2. This makes the Super Saiyan 3 eight times stronger.

To transform into Super Saiyan 3, the Saiyan needs to be in his previous Super Saiyan form. Then, he must push as hard as he can to find the energy within himself to transform. 

He must then use the energy to transform. To hold Goku up long enough for Trunks and the dragon radar to be found, he uses the Super Saiyan 3 transform in a quick fight against Majin Buu.

He almost beat Buu stroke for stroke and was able to overcome the monster. As he couldn’t stay there for too long, he decided to withdraw from the fight and wanted Goten & Trunks to defeat Buu with their fusion technique. 

Goku later said that he believed Buu could be killed if he tried. However, he was confident in Gotenk’s abilities to defeat him if they attempted the fusion dance.

In the final fight against Kid Buu, the Super Saiyan 3 status was stretched to its limits. Goku was unable to match the seemingly inexhaustible power supply of the Majin, despite his Super Saiyan 3 strength. 

While he appeared to be the victor for most of the fight, the Majin’s seemingly endless power supply made it clear that he was in control. However, Buu’s attacks seemed futile and he eventually succumbed from exhaustion.

Later, he revealed that he could have defeated Kid Buu at full strength but decided to let the fight drag along to give Vegeta another chance. Vegeta then climbed on to a Super Saiyan 2 to give Goku time to recover his full strength.

However, the stress of gathering his strength caused him to return to his normal state, which left him severely dehydrated and unable to transform.

It took a super ghost Bomb, a combination of all energies on Earth, Yemma’s office ogres and Namek villagers to defeat Kid Buu. The Super Saiyan 3 form was in that.

9. Golden Great Ape

Debut: “Goku’s New Power” (anime). / “A Rival Appears?” !” (manga)

Golden Great Ape

Appearance

Saiyans with tails can achieve this state, as well as the ability to transform into Super Saiyan. The Saiyan can transform by looking at a full moon, or any other planetary body.

(Sunlight reflected off a planet also creates blood waves since Goku used “full earth” to transform. The user is a Super Saiyan ape. Their fur is gold and stands on its own, much like the Super Saiyan’s spiky head.

The user appears identical to a normal great-ape, except for Ape Baby (whose blue-coloured eyes could be due to Baby’s mutation of Vegeta). Sometimes, the user may also have a crackling, golden aura.

Power and usage

The power of the golden Ape is multiplied, and it far exceeds all other apes in all areas. This shape is even more powerful than the Super Saiyan 3 transform. 

\This state allows a Saiyajin to increase their power and strength dramatically, and then continue to grow. They are just as powerful as the great ape but more destructive and their anger is so intense that they can cause great damage.

Dragon Ball Z: Scouter Battle Taikan Kamehameha- Ora to Omee, Scouter, Golden Great Ape Baby has a strength of 1.2 times that of Super Baby Vegeta 2. 

The user’s berserk condition also increases to the point that it is impossible to control. Goku could not focus on his fight against Baby because he was stronger than Baby. 

Vegeta, still infected with Baby, transformed into a golden ape, allowing him to perform ki-blast attacks from this state. 

This form can be used by purebred Saiyajins (like Goku or Vegeta) to unlock their identity and control their powers.

Vegeta, who was in complete control of his standard form for great-apes, admitted that he couldn’t become Super Saiyan 4. He was part of Baby at the time.

However, the Shadow Kite was Saga and was able to overcome Vegeta’s berserk form and move to Super Saiyan 4 soon afterwards.

Goku first shows this shape in the Baby Saga Dragon Ball GT. He uses it by staring directly at the “full Earth” after regaining the tail.

Then he overpowers the strongest Baby Vegeta, the Shape 2 until Pan manages to get him to regain consciousness and transform into Super Saiyan 4.

Baby Vegeta uses the form due to the Blood Wave Generator created by Bulma to defeat Super Saiyan4 Goku.

However, he loses to this Super Full Reached Power Saiyan 4. Vegeta achieves this form during the Shadow Dragon saga. Thanks to his royal legacy, and the control of the state he is instantly a Super Saiyan.

Cumber uses this form to win against Vegito’s Super Saiyan Blue Kaio Ken. Super Fu interrupts his transformation and uses the surprise blade (spiked by a Powerball) to restore the Saiyan to his original form.

10. Super Saiyan 4

Debut: “Back in the Game”, (anime)/ “The Mightiest Heroesine, Note!” !” (manga)

Super Saiyan 4

Appearance

Saiyajin’s hair is different in this form. The tail is also different. And the body is covered with red fur. This form of Saiyan has a shadow border that runs around the eyes and covers his eyelids.

As the hair grows longer, it becomes wilder and reaches the middle of the back. Two long, pointed hair strands appear on either side of its neck.

The aura also increases the size and muscle mass of the person, as Vegeta demonstrated when his time limit expired and he returned to his much smaller size. 

In this form, the aura is shaped like a Super Saiyan aura. However, in many video games, the aura is reddish with a slightly yellowish tint and sparks bioelectricity.

Gogeta, a Fusion Dance warrior, had his hair turn a light red shade while his fur became dark brown. The rim around his eyes also changed to black. 

Its aura has yellow glints. Broly’s Super Saiyan 4 Transformation is very similar to that of Goku, Gohan and Vegeta in Super Saiyan 4.

They all have long, dark hair and reddish-coloured fur. Broly’s legendary Super Saiyan 4 transformation has the main difference. It has no visible pupils and is massively muscular. This form also has a yellow-coloured aura.

Power and usage

The Super Saiyan 4 is a compressed form of the great ape power. It pushes its user’s power to the limit. Baby Vegeta didn’t seem to be bothered by Goku’s Super Saiyan 3 version, but Goku transformed into Super Saiyan 4 after he grew up and took on the role of Super Saiyan 4.

Super Saiyan 4 was at the time the most powerful form of the series. It is possible that Vegito was even more powerful than Super Saiyan 4. 

This transformation allows users to use stronger signature techniques. Goku creates an attack that he calls 10x multiplied Kamehameha.

This attack is ten times (10x!) stronger than the Super Kamehameha. Goku in video games uses a combined attack called 100x Big Bang Kamehameha and Broly has an attack known as Gigantic Destruction.

If the user so desires, he can still use his signature techniques in their regular variations. This form appears to be able to absorb energy attacks, just like the Super Saiyan God. 

The Super Saiyan 4 form, however, does not consume power to absorb energy attacks, unlike the Super Saiyan god. This is evident when Goku absorbs Great Ape Baby’s Revenge Death Ball finale and transforms it into a 10x Kamehameha.

Super Saiyan 4 also increases the user’s Saiyan powers in real-time. Goku was frozen by the shadow Dragon during Goku’s battle against Ice Shenron.

Nuova needs Shenron to help her escape. Goku was able to adapt to Eis Shenron using the next attack and was completely unaffected when he escaped the event.

Goku also pointed out that the same technique did not work twice for him. Goku was blinded by ice by Syn Shenron’s attack, but despite this, he quickly adapted to the attack and used his other senses to respond to every Shadow Dragon’s attack. 

This form, unlike Super Saiyan 3’s ki-based load, doesn’t require as much energy to sustain and can be maintained for longer periods.

The form is easy to use and maintain but can be thrown out of when the energy level drops. This is similar to Super Saiyan. 

Although the form’s ki consumption is not excessive, it can be exhausting for the user. Fusion dance is much faster than usual. Gogeta can be defused in ten minutes rather than the normal half an hour.

11. Super Saiyan Rage

Debut: “Zamasu’s Ambition The Storied Project 0 Mortals” of Terror” (anime}

Super Saiyan Rage

Appearance

The official anime artwork depicts the user as a Super Saiyan 2 character with a golden aura. The appearance of Super Saiyan Rage is very similar to the standard Super Saiyan 2. 

The aura emits a golden glow with a blue tint around the body. It is similar to an inverted Super Saiyan Blue aura. His aura emits particles that are similar to the ones emitted from Super Saiyan Blue or Super Saiyan Rose.

It emits dense, blue flashes from bioelectricity. However, it’s Super Saiyan 2 form is, even more, bluer, denser and angrier. 

His hair grows longer than his Super Saiyan 2 forms and has a more golden hue than the Super Saiyan 3 version. His muscles grow up similar to Super Saiyan 3 grade, and then the blue glow around his body disappears.

His pupils and irises become temporarily invisible when he feels anger. This is similar to Legendary Super Saiyan or Pseudo Super Saiyan. 

Trunks were able to absorb the energy and hope from humanity by creating a ghost bomb. This gave him a new power-up.

His aura became completely blue, and his body created a blue energy aura. It is similar to Goku’s Super Dragon Fist attack videogames that give users a blue aura.

Power and usage

Super Saiyan Rage is different in that it’s represented differently from Super Saiyan 2 and Super Saiyan 3. This Super Saiyan form enhancement can be achieved by intense anger, just like in Wrath Mode. 

Future Trunks is angry at Zamasu and Goku Black, who blame him for everything. Future Trunks can use the power of this shape to fight Super Saiyan Red Goku Black, and Future Zamasu simultaneously.

Future Trunks will take on the form of a Super Saiyan 2. His eyes go blank and his appearance changes to one of his forceful forms.

Then, a blue aura takes over and his muscles shrink back to normal. Future Trunks can now take on Super Saiyan claim Rose Goku Black, despite having previously outperformed Future Zamasu.

He meets Super Saiyan Rose Goku Black, the immortal Future Zamasu later and forces them to defend themselves with a strategy to separate them. 

Future Trunks uses his mould to keep the two of them apart, while Vegeta and Goku return to the present to discover a way to defeat Black or Zamasu. 

Future Trunks is defeated by Future Mai and treated accordingly, Vegeta uses the mould again to fight the pair.

Future Zamasu is defeated by Future Trunks with one explosion, and Goku Black is defeated with a relentless attack. 

Future Trunks was also able to retain enough stamina for Future Zamasu to be sealed with the Evil Containment Wave. 

This state was demonstrated during the fight against Fused Zamasu. It can be increased even further by the energy of others all over the globe and give rise to a huge boost in performance. This force could easily demolish Fused Zamasu’s physique.

This form is very similar in appearance to the state of anger mode. Both are huge powerups from the Super Saiyan 2 that temporarily obscure the eyes and can be accessed through anger. 

However, the Super Saiyan Rage power-up requires the stress power state to be used. The Quake of Fury power-up does not.

12. Super Saiyan God

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods – Debut

Super Saiyan God

Appearance

The legend of the warrior race, Saiyajins, is the “Super Saiyan God”. To become this legendary form, one must have the power of six Saiyajins who are kind and generous. 

Shenron was confirmed by the Dragon Team and Society. However, there was only one super Saiyan god found on the planet Vegeta. He failed to fulfil the form’s time limit.

Namekians knew about the Super Saiyan God, and they wrote legends in their book of legends about how to hear the shape. The Saiyan in this form has very little difference from its normal appearance. The most noticeable change is the slightly pinkish skin tone, similar to Rage Mode.

Also, the hair is a darker shade of red. This form shows Goku with magenta hair and Vegeta with purple hair. Each hair is unique and can be seen differently. 

The eyes of the Saiyan become more detailed and the iris becomes redder. The whole body is framed and the physique becomes thinner. The Super Saiyan God departure from a raging flame. This form makes a Saiyan cool-headed.

Power and usage

Super Saiyan God, at the time of its debut, was “a being surpassing all”. This form’s power is so great that Goku was able to defeat Beerus, the god of destruction who is less powerful than Goku.

Super Saiyan 3 Goku easily defeated Beerus. Old Kai saw that three strikes could destroy everything in the universe, even without any control.

Broly Light’s novel says that the Super Saiyan God has a far superior level of power to the Super Saiyan. This powerful form does have its disadvantages. It takes some time for the user to use it fully and their energy reserves are quickly depleted. 

The Super Saiyan god also has a time limit that it will disappear seamlessly after. However, Goku’s actual power didn’t decrease even after the time limit expired. He could still fight the God of Destruction in both his Super Saiyan and basic forms.

Beerus suggested that Goku’s experience and adaption to the Super Saiyan God made it possible for him to unconsciously access his power, which seemed to negate the power consumption. 

Goku worked on his remaining effects and eventually mastered the power of this form after his fight with Beerus.

This shape can be used to complement Super Saiyan Blue, by switching instantly between the two. Whilst claims that Super Saiyan God can move faster than Super Saiyan. 

Super Saiyan God can be used to move, but Super Saiyan Blue can be used for defence and attack. 

Vegeta could maintain his stamina better than Goku Black and keep up with him in fights. This could only be done through intense training, Goku said.

13. Super Saiyan Blue

Debut: Dragon Ball Z Resurrection – ‘F’

Super Saiyan Blue

Appearance

The shape of this Super Saiyan is nearly identical to the original. Only the main difference is that the hair and the iris are now cyan (although the iris takes on an even darker colour than the hair). 

Dragon Ball Super Broly’s colour is darker and more similar to Vegeta in her evolved state. The physical form of the Saiyajin is not the same as the divine form.

The manga shows that the state appears initially without sparks, but gains them after Vegeta and Goku’s training at the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. 

Super Saiyan Blue has a fiery, bright, electric blue aura, which contrasts with the bright orange aura that surrounds the Super Saiyan god. The aura surrounding the Super Saiyan Blue shape appears to shimmer a little, with small sparkly energy particles moving up the flames and occasional electric surges. 

A subtle yellow glow can be also seen outside the aura. Although it wasn’t immediately clear why this glow was present, it could be remnants from the original Super Saiyan transform.

This aura has two tones and is very similar to the Super Saiyan Rage form of Trunks. The aura does not appear on the body of the user, unlike the other major Super Saiyan transforms. 

The transformations that follow are similar to an ordinary Super Saiyan. Users’ hair rises and turns blue. 

A Saiyan who is bald simply gets a Super Saiyan aura. However, his eyebrows will still change colour as normal.

Power and usage

This form, according to Goku, is when a Super Saiyan transforms further into a Super Saiyan and has the power of a Super Saiyan god. 

It is the first Super Saiyan Form combined with the power, crimson divine Ki of a Super Saiyan God who has become cyan from absorbing it.

A Saiyan can obtain the shape from someone who is a Super Saiyan God and then retains power. If the Saiyan harnesses Super Saiyan’s power and then attempts to transform into a Super Saiyan then they will naturally become a Super Saiyan (Super Saiyan Blue, or Super Saiyan Rose depending on their status). 

As shown in the anime, and as seen in the manga with Goku Black, the Saiyans can transform their Super Saiyan forms into Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan forms as they gain strength. 

According to Dragon Ball Z Extreme Butoden, Super Saiyan Blue transforms are the most powerful. This form gives its users the ki of a god.

This shape increases the strength, speed, and power of the user beyond the previous Super Saiyan levels. It also has a calm mind, which makes it and its Ki lighter than other Saiyan forms such as Super Saiyan. 

Goku can then push himself to Kaio-ken x10, and later x20. They can fight in the form without ki drain and have the area reserved for ki-based attacks. 

Vegeta and Goku both state that this form requires calmness and focus. Only those who can perceive the divine Ki of form can recognize the Saiyajin’s ki.

Despite the incredible performance improvement of the form over the original Super Saiyan God, neither Goku nor Vegeta were able to challenge Beerus on their own and they had to fight together to win. 

Although this shape was not strong enough to defeat Golden Frieza at full force, Super Saiyan Blue was still able to overcome Golden Frieza due to Goku’s extensive experience with the shape. 

This form can be strengthened by training. Goku was able to bring Golden Frieza back to power at their next meeting despite the fact Frieza had become stronger.

It can even increase its strength by combining sufficient combat strength. This can be seen in the fact that Goku could easily defeat Jiren the next time and was able to keep up with him, making him more serious.

This form, with its innate ki control and calm mind, can be combined to make the Super Saiyan Blue Kaio-Ken. The Super Saiyan Blue form is not without its disadvantages. However, it requires a lot more stamina when unlocked for the first time.

14. Super Saiyan Rose

Debut: “Rematch With Goku Black!” Enter Super Saiyan Rose” (anime) / “The Zero Mortal Project” (manga)

Super Saiyan Rose

Appearance

This state is similar to the Super Saiyan Blue form in anime. However, the aura changes to a pinkish colour on the inside.

The user’s hair becomes a pale pink colour with faint white reflections. Their eyebrows match the colour of their hair, and their eyes become light grey. The aura takes on a very dark red tone from the outside but turns to a pinkish colour inside.

Goku Black (since he can only access this form) sees his clothes becoming lighter and his eyebrows and hair colour changing slightly.

This shape seems to improve Black’s techniques such as his Super Black Kamehameha, and his Violent Fierce God Scrimper, which allow him to expand them into more complex shapes. The colour of the shape also affects his other techniques. 

The manga’s Super Saiyan Blue shape is the same as that of the anime. The aura of Super Saiyan Blue is more flame-like and jagged than the aura that Super Saiyan Blue emits. Goku Black’s hair appears spikier in a close-up. This is true for all characters that have been enlarged.

Some people have made false claims that the hair is more pointed or changed than it is. The Super Saiyan Rose form of Goku Black merged with Future Zamasu and the Potara earrings to create Fused Zamasu.

Later (in the manga), the result is a being who is continuously and permanently in Super Saiyan Rose is shape. Fusions with Potara earrings automatically give the Potara earrings the altered state(s) at the time of the merger and they were unable to take them off-form.

Super Saiyan Rose is the dark counterpart to Super Saiyan Blue. Divine ki is used. Future Zamasu believes that this shape is pink because it is the result of a deity who has overpowered the Super Saiyan God (blue being the result of a mortal who has overpowered it).

Power and usage

V-Jump’s January 2017 issue featured Goku Black, as well as Fused Zamasu, rated 12/12 on this form’s danger scale. This state can be achieved the same way as its mortal counterpart in the manga because it is a Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan type. 

Goku Black achieved the form when his Super Saiyan powers exceeded Super Saiyan God. He then naturally evolved to Super Saiyan Rose. He won the form simply by incorporating Goku’s fighting style into it.

They are not called the Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan forms by Dragon Ball Super anime or Dragon Ball Fusions, but rather Goku Black’s Super Saiyan standard form. 

Like its mortal counterpart, this form provides Black with the exact ki control necessary to properly use and maintain it. 

Super Saiyan Rose’s control of ki is more precise than its mortal counterpart. This is due to Black’s status in the divine realm. He was capable of crafting various energy weapons at will.

This form is not affected by any loss of endurance, unlike Super Saiyan Blue which required more training. Goku Black can use the form whenever he likes. This could be because he already has the power to master it and because he was born as a divine being.

All he needs to do to increase his power is to use that form. The shape doesn’t appear to affect how long Fused Zamasu can remain fused. This is in contrast to Super Saiyan Blue Vegito who was defused well before the hour expired.

The anime shows Black Super Saiyan revealing Rose for the first time in his fight against Vegeta and Future Trunks. Black was attacked by Vegeta, Super Saiyan Blue.

He fought back and finally speared him through his chest with his energy knife. When Goku became a Super Saiyan Blue, he fought him. Goku held his own but Black used his energy knife to press Goku.

Black defeated Trunks and Goku after his ally Future Zamasu had held them for long enough. He then used a single explosion from the Black Kamehameha to defeat them both. Goku Black transforms into Super Saiyan Rose in the super manga.

15. Super Saiyan White (theoretical)

Debut: None

Super Saiyan White (theoretical)

Appearance

Super Saiyan White, an advanced form of Super Saiyan transformation, is the last natural evolution of Super Saiyan God forms. 

The ‘Super Saiyan white’ form, considered the purest form of a divine Saiyan is unrivalled in strength.

It places it above a god and at the level of angels such as Whis and Vados. It is the “ultimate transformation” of the Saiyan Race.

The Super Saiyan White transformation is similar to Super Saiyan God or Super Saiyan Blue. It’s a marked departure from the Super Saiyan Transformation that a typical Saiyan uses. 

Although it is similar to the original Super Saiyan transform, the hair is lighter than the original and highlighted with vivid cyan.

The eyebrows are also lightened. On the other side, the eyes turn dull blue. The aura becomes a bright white flame that is highlighted in the same colour as the hair. Due to the intense divine ki, the sparkle and flash of previous forms have vanished.

Power and usage

The fan theory behind this transformation, which has been around since the Resurrection Of ‘F’ movie, suggested that it was the last form of the evolutionary line of Super Saiyan God. 

Super Saiyan White represents the last evolution of the “Concept” of Super Saiyan. A Saiyan must first acknowledge their anger to achieve Super Saiyan Blue. Then, Super Saiyan Blue teaches a Saiyan how to control and refine his emotions and learn to deviate.

Super Saiyan White is when a Saiyan becomes free from anger and can no longer be influenced by worldly worries. 

This alters the flow of the Saiyan’s ki, which triggers the new transformation. This state causes a Saiyan to experience a drastic change in their ki. It is similar to an angel’s signature, which is without ki. Saiyans cannot be attacked by those who lack divine ki.

This form enhances the skills of a Saiyajin and gives them an inborn understanding of combat and Ki. They can also negate ki attacks completely and fight like a second-nature fighter. 

This halo gives them the unique ability to create the angel’s costume, which allows them to have special abilities. They can also sense the intentions of others, just like Hakaishin and angels.

16. Ultra Instinct Sign

Debut: “Goku Enkindled! The Awakened One’s New Ultra Instinct!” (anime). / “Sign of Son Goku’s Awakening”(manga).

Ultra Instinct Sign

Appearance

This state is for male Saiyans. His hair becomes spikier and more firm, often with silver highlights, and has looser strands. His eyes are defined and more defined, with visible pupils and silver-coloured irises (similar to Super Saiyan 3 or Super Saiyan God). 

It also has a complex, silver-coloured, and purple aura that is made up of fire-like energy and sparkling particles. These sparkle particles move upwards, similar to the Super Saiyan god in front of it. The manga shows that the user slims just like the Super Saiyan god.

This form allows the Saiyan to keep their hair the same but with a silver sheen. Namekians, Earthlings and Core People members of the Demon Realm Race get silver eyes in this form. 

Members of the Frieza Race, Majin, and others, will receive the silver eyes, silver organic gemstones, and the ability to add as in the state Golden Frieza.

It emits a bright blue glow around itself and another transparent aura that shoots upwards when it is switched on. The overwhelming energy creates a powerful tremor that can blow away the surrounding area.

Like other forms, the stronger the power-up, and the stronger the aura until it stabilizes, is similar to other forms. 

Goku’s voice gets more raucous as he uses Super Saiyan 3 or Super Saiyan 4. Contrary to other forms, Goku’s aura surrounds him even when he is not switched on. It is a blue, very thin aura that covers his entire body.

Power and usage

Goku achieves this state by breaking his “self-limiting beliefs” (his limitations) and unlocking his deeper potential. 

In the anime, Goku resists an extremely powerful attack. However, in the manga, it is the culmination of all of Goku’s martial arts training under various masters. The shape is initially only usable for a brief time in the manga.

This shape is expected to be more powerful than the Super Saiyan shapes, depending on the skill level of the user. Piccolo couldn’t see if Goku was stronger than the previous time he used this form against Moro when he revealed it. Piccolo could see that Goku was using his perfect Super Saiyan Blue on this occasion.

Ultra Instinct Sign’s greatest strength is its ability to give the user the Autonomous Ultra Instinct capability, which allows them to instantly and automatically respond to any threat by using the most efficient and seamless ways of attacking and defending. The form’s only real weakness is its lack of agility and lower attack power.

This state allows Goku to use his powers to a higher level than the X20 Super Saiyan Blue Kaio Ken state.

It also expands his mental parameters, allowing him to quickly shape fights without having to think about them. 

In the promotional material for the anime, Goku was recognized as being possibly more powerful than Beerus (either in its final use of Ultra Instinct Signal or in its full form).

This manga compares to Vegeta’s Super Saiyan God SS Evolution, which Jiren created. This form, which uses god ki, is similar to Super Saiyan Blue and Super Saiyan Blue. 

In anime, Goku’s instinctive fighting style is enhanced by the Ultra Instinct Status status. This allows him to increase his Saiyan strength ability and to continue fighting an opponent with equal or greater strength.

17. Autonomous Ultra Instinct

Debut: Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods

Autonomous Ultra Instinct

Appearance

The form of the Ultra Instinct sign is almost the same, but the user’s hair becomes silver. This hairstyle is more wild and firm than normal.

There are no loose strands. The eyes are more defined and straightened, with visible pupils and silver-coloured irises.

The manga also has a calm, focused expression. The anime gives the user a complex blue and silver aura. This is made up of rippling fire-like energy with sparkling particles of magenta. 

The manga gives the user the complex blue and silver aura. This is composed of rippling fire-like energy without the sparkle particles of magenta. The aura disappears once the user has more control over it.

The user’s muscles are virtually the same size and shape in anime. The manga shows the user’s muscles being slimmed down to look like the Super Saiyan god. 

The user’s first successful conversion to Autonomous Ultra Instinct saw a “shell” made of bright white and black covering the body.

As the hair fades from white to grey, it crumbles. Similar results were observed with Super Saiyan Blue.

The extreme energy of transformation in anime tears apart the user’s clothing on his torso. In the manga, his clothes are unaffected. 

Toriyama’s artwork, Super Dragon Ball Heroes manga and in-game Super Dragon Ball Heroes show that Goku’s Super Saiyan God’s shape has hair and eyes.

However, they are silver. As they dodge and dodge, Goku’s movements as this form are reflected in the anime. Although his voice is now rougher and deeper than before, he speaks his native language.

Power and usage

This form makes Goku the most powerful he’s ever been, and his power skyrockets. He is the most powerful unit in the multiverse. 

It is believed to be stronger than the gods. Beerus admits in promotional materials for Goku that he might be more powerful than him in his power.

Whis claims that Vegeta would be able to defeat Beerus if he achieved Perfected Super Saiyan blue. 

This shape allows Goku the ability to strike Jiren with full force, taking advantage of any openings in his guard.

Jiren refers to this as not being strong enough to match his strength. Merus later remarks that Goku can master this skill and no enemy can defeat him in combat. This makes him virtually unbeatable.

If the condition is good enough, it can also harden the area of the body about to be hit. This was evident when Moro tried to punch Goku in his chest with his fist. 

It is stated throughout the manga that you must maintain complete control over your emotions to not upset Ultra Instinct’s balance. 

The anime doesn’t seem like there is such a risk, as Goku was even able to use anger to increase his power.

Goku, Uubs and his Ultra Instinct state were restored. He then demonstrated the ability to create an enormous avatar of energy. 

Goku then stormed out from the avatar and destroyed Moro’s crystal, ending the conflict once and for all. All angels are in the Autonomous Super Instinct state.

The form is revealed for the first time by Whis when Beerus awakens Beerus, as a result of the prophecy from the Super Saiyan god. 

This condition is first revealed to Goku and Vegeta by him when he trains them before Frieza takes revenge.
