The latest Dragon ball animated series, has been through a lot of changes, especially in the visual department. Naohiri Shintani, the character designer behind the new designs for the Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie, Played a major role in the success of the movie. Fans and Critics alike are praising his designs for giving the series a fresh new look.
As a part of the latest trend, fans are now imagining what other classic character designs would look like in Shintani’s style. After the movie, many fan theories surfaced. Amongst them the potential return of Super Saiyan 4 was one of the craziest. Fans are wondering what SSJ4 Goku would look like in the upcoming series if he were to be made canon. One artist managed to imagine Shintani’s take on Super Saiyan 4 Goku. Check it out below.
Artist Imagines SSJ4 Goku
Artist @CELLMANart and @SkrillerArt shared their take on Super Saiyan 4 Goku. It looks very likely that this is what Shintani would have designed himself as well. Super Saiyan 4 was also teased during the Broly movie when Broly managed to draw out his Oozaru power. Unfortunately, however, he did not change into the Super Saiyan 4 form but rather his Legendary Super Saiyan form. This development could possibly lead to the first ever canon transformation into Super Saiyan 4.
Many fans believe Akira Toriyama, the series creator, wants to introduce Super Saiyan 4 into the official canon. Broly’s golden eyes, which look exactly the same as the golden eyes first seen in Super Saiyan 4, also hint towards this theory. Fingers crossed the upcoming series will delve into this transformation and will finally make it canon. The latest Manga arc has also introduced a new Villain that is stronger than Super Saiyan God. This is the perfect moment to use Broly and introduce SSJ4.
