A Super Saiyan (Japanese. 超 サ イ ヤ 人 (ス ー パ ー サ イ ヤ じ ん), Sūpā Saiya-jin) is next to the form of Ōzaru a possible transformation of Saiyajin and their descendants. The Saiyan who undergo this transformation get blonde hair that stands up in a spiky hairstyle. Because of her appearance, she is initially confused by Freezer with the shape of the Legendary Super Saiyan. But even if the transformation looks like this and means a great increase in the fighting strength of a Saiyajin, it is nowhere near capable of unleashing such forces.


Unlike the Ōzaru form, the Saiyajin do not need their tail, but can trigger the transformation from a certain combat strength through extreme anger and thereby enormously increase strength and speed.[1][2]

The Super Saiyan can reach three strength levels, in which his strength increases enormously, but he has to pay for this increase in strength with a lack of speed. This disadvantage is overcome by the subsequent transformation stages of Super Saiyan 2 and Super Saiyan 3.[3][4]

Super Saiyan with enhanced powers

The second (Japanese 超 サ イ ヤ 人 第 2 形態, Sūpā Saiya-jin Dai ni-dankai) and the third figure of a Super Saiyajin (Japanese 超 サ イ ヤ 人 第 3 段 階, Sûpâ Saiya-jin dai san-dankai) are im Basically Super Saiyan, whose sheer strength exceeds that of a simple Super Saiyan.[5][6]

After Son Goku has reached the second and third level of the normal Super Saiyan in the space of spirit and time, he soon realizes that the disadvantages of these forms are not worth the boost in power.[7]
