Super Saiyan Transformations have been a staple of the Dragon Ball Super franchise for a long time. The emotional and dramatic build-up to every transformation has made the series popular all around the globe. With so many transformations, whether they are canon or not, it’s often hard to keep track of them. The addition of new transformations every series is ridiculous but fans have grown to love it. Aside from Super Saiyan Transformations, there are plenty more which we will not discuss today. So here is a list of all the Super Saiyan Transformations ranked from weakest to strongest.
Dragon Ball Super: All Super Saiyan Transformations Ranked
Regular Super Saiyan may seem weak compared to the other transformations but it is still one of the greatest feats for Goku. He was the first Saiyan to ever achieve this mythical form. The death of Krillin at the hands of Frieza was enough to push Goku over the edge as he just couldn’t control his emotions anymore. The form multiplied his power by x50, just enough to defeat Frieza.
Ascended Super Saiyan
Also knows as Super Saiyan second grade, Ascended Super Saiyan is when a Saiyan pushes past his limits of the regular transformation. The form proved to be useless as it sacrifices a lot of speed for only a small amount of power. The form was stronger than imperfect Cell but was insignificant compared to Perfect Cell.
Super Saiyan Full Power
Super Saiyan Full power is the perfect version of the regular Super Saiyan. Goku and Gohan were able to master this transformation by staying in the form for extended periods of time. By doing this they were able to properly harness the great amount of energy released from the transformation.
Super Saiyan 2
Gohan was the first Saiyan to achieve Super Saiyan 2 during the Cell saga, very similar to how his father achieved it through emotional turmoil. The form is x100 the power of a base Saiyan making it roughly twice as strong as Super Saiyan 1.
Super Saiyan 3
Super Saiyan 3 may not have been the most perfect transformations but it was definitely strong. The form is x400 times stronger than base Saiyan meaning it is 4 times stronger than SSJ2. The greatest drawback of the form is its 100% utilization of physical stamina resulting in massive fatigue. This is one of the many reasons why the other Saiyan’s decided not to learn SSJ3.
Super Saiyan 4
First appearing in the controversial Dragon Ball GT, Super Saiyan 4 was dubbed the final transformation of the Saiyans. It can only be achieved by gaining control over the destructive Golden ape transformation. The form gives a massive power of boost of x4,000 as compared to SSJ3. However, since it is not recognized to be canon, the form is considered to be weaker than the forms introduced in Dragon Ball Super.
Super Saiyan God
Dragon Ball Super changed a lot of established lore in the series, like the addition of gods and god Powers. Super Saiyan god is the form a Saiyan achieves when he is able to control godly Ki. Goku was the first to do so by performing a special ritual where five Saiyans infused their energy into him. SSJG is a massive improvement from SSJ3, in the latter form Goku could barely take on Beerus but with SSJG he made the god of destruction use 70% of his power.
Super Saiyan Blue
Super Saiyan Blue is achieved by transforming into a Super Saiyan while in the Super Saiyan God form. It is much easier to understand if you take SSJG to be the base form and SSJB to be the Super Saiyan form. SSJB is way more powerful than SSJG and is the most commonly used transformation as of now.
Super Saiyan Rose
When a Saiyan obtains godly Ki, a blue colored aura surrounds the Saiyan. Both Goku and Vegeta are mortals born without godly Ki but if they were immortal their transformation would have been very different. This is exactly what happened when Zamasu stole Goku’s Body to become Goku Black. With Goku’s Body and his godly Ki,, he was able to go Super Saiyan Rose, which is even stronger than SSJB.
Super Saiyan Blue Evolved
Super Saiyan Blue evolved is the next level of the SSJB transformation, it the empowered state of SSJB. Vegeta was able to achieve this form during the tournament of Power arc. The form looks similar to the Ascended Super Saiyan form but is way stronger. It is on par with SSJB Kaioken Goku.
Legendary Super Saiyan
The Legendary Super Saiyan is an extremely powerful and rare transformation that only appears once every thousand years. The form grants its user a seemingly endless supply of energy. It is the true form of the regular Super Saiyan. So far only Broly and Kale are known to have achieved this form. Considering that the form is only equivalent to regular Super Saiyan, the next levels of this form would be incredibly strong and way too overpowered. Watch khatrimaza
