Super Saiyan 4 (サイヤ,Sūpā Saiya-jin Fō) is a type of Super Saiyantransformation which first appeared in Dragon Ball GT. The form is a different branch of transformation from the earlier Super Saiyan forms, such as Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2 and Super Saiyan 3.[5]

Overview

The only way a Saiyan can attain Super Saiyan 4 is if they have a high enough power level and become a Golden Great Ape (or Broly's variant) and regain conscious control over the form. Even after this form is attained, it cannot be accessed at will and requires exposure to Blutz Waves every time the user wishes to transform, however, Goku is apparently a special case, capable of using the form whenever he wishes.[6] In Dragon Ball HeroesGohan acquired the form without a tail while training, and Xeno Trunks was originally going to have acquired the form too showing that even Half-Saiyans born without tails can still acquire Super Saiyan 4.

The Super Saiyan 4 form was designed by Toei Animation's character designer Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru.[5] The form is a combination of the Super Saiyan and Great Ape forms attained through the Golden Great Ape form, it gifts the Saiyan with primal power,[7] though they retain a humanoid appearance. It is possibly the Legendary Super Saiyan that appears once every 1, years.[8]

This form gives the user the super strength and speed of a Great Ape, but with a calm, clever mind. But for others, it can make them very cold and aggressive.[9] A user of this form loses some of their rationality.[10]

The form's power is too great to be utilized by a child and so a child user is aged into an adult when using it. The form possesses all of the power of Golden Great Ape.[11]

Appearance

In this form, the Saiyan's hair color differs, the same goes for the tail and the body is covered in red fur. A Saiyan in this form also possesses a shadow trim around their eyes and over the eyelids that varies in color, such as crimson. The hair is lengthened while becoming wilder, reaching down to the middle of their back, while two long pointed bangs of hair appear on both sides of the neck. It also makes the individual considerably larger in height and muscularity, as shown by Vegeta when his time limit ended and he reverted to his considerably smaller size.

The aura in this form loses the arcs of electricity, once again shaped like a regular Super Saiyan's smooth aura, (although in various video games, the aura was depicted as reddish with a small yellowish glow and sparks of bio-electricity).

In the case of the Fusion Dance warrior Gogeta, the coloration of the aforementioned features seemingly switches, as Gogeta's hair became a bright shade of red whereas his fur became a dark shade of brown and the trim around his eyes were black instead of red. His aura also has yellow sparkles to it.

Broly's Super Saiyan 4 transformation is fairly similar to Goku's, Gohan's and Vegeta's Super Saiyan 4 transformation. All of which possess having very long black or dark colored hair, a reddish colored fur, and a red outline for around the eyes. However, the main key differences are that Broly is utilizing his Legendary version of the Super Saiyan 4 transformation, which does not have any visible pupils in his eyes, and has massively oversized muscles. While in this form, there is also a yellow colored aura.

Usage and Power

"Light breaks the darkness! This form is my instrument - I have no limits."
&#; Goku in "Baby Put to Rest"

The Super Saiyan 4 form is a condensed version of the Great Ape's power,[12] drawing the power of its user up to its utmost limits.[5] While Goku's Super Saiyan 3 form was unable to even faze Baby Vegeta, as soon as Goku transformed into a Super Saiyan 4, becoming an adult once more in the process, their roles in power became polar opposites, with Baby Vegeta being almost unable to hurt Goku. At the time of its debut, Super Saiyan 4 was the mightiest form in the entire series.[13] However, it is noted that Vegito may have been even stronger than Super Saiyan 4.[14]

This transformation allows users to utilize more powerful signature techniques. For example, Goku develops an attack he calls the 10x Kamehameha, as it is ten times (10x) stronger than the Super Kamehameha, Gogeta uses a powerful combined attack named x Big Bang Kamehameha in video games, and Broly has an attack named Gigantic Destruction. Despite this, the user can still perform the regular variants of their signature techniques if they so wished.

Like the Super Saiyan God form, this form also seems to allow the user to absorb energy attacks. However, unlike Super Saiyan God, the Super Saiyan 4 form does not use up the user's power when absorbing energy attacks. This is shown when Goku absorbs Great Ape Baby's Revenge Death Ball Final and turns it into a 10x Kamehameha.

Super Saiyan 4 also enhances the user's Saiyan Power ability in seemingly real time as during Goku's battle against Eis Shenron he was frozen solid by the Shadow Dragon, requiring Nuova Shenron's aid to escape. Afterwards, however, Goku adapted to and became completely unaffected by Eis Shenron's next usage of the attack as he instantly broke free while completely unfazed from the event. To which, Goku noted firmly that the same technique does not work twice on him. Later, against Syn Shenron, despite being blinded by Eis, once recharged by the other Saiyans' ki, Goku adapted so completely from Syn's previous assault that just using his other senses let him react to all of the Shadow Dragon's attacks effortlessly.

Unlike the Super Saiyan 3's strain due to the utilization in ki, this form does not require as much energy to maintain as Super Saiyan 3, allowing the user to stay in the state at a much longer duration. Although the form doesn't require much energy to use or maintain, the user can still fall out of the form if they run low, similar to Super Saiyan 3.[15] And while its ki consumption does not strain the user himself, it does become straining when used in conjunction with Fusion Dance, significantly shortening the fusion time limit; as evidenced by Gogeta defusing within ten minutes instead of the regular half-hour limit.

In the Xenoverse series, both Beerus and Whis note the form to possess amazing power, and Goku, Vegeta, and Gogeta think that the form might be able to surpass Beerus. Whis considers it powerful enough to ask Goku if he would be willing to become a God of Destruction.

In the Prison Planet Saga, Super Saiyan 4 Xeno Goku proves to be able to battle Super Saiyan Blue Goku evenly in the manga and anime, however, in the game, Xeno Goku is defeated and has to catch his breath after the battle, while Goku does not, with Xeno Goku noting that Goku is a step above him in power.[16] In the anime, Xeno Vegito manages to fight on par with Super Saiyan 3 Cumber using this form, seemingly indicating that he was more powerful than Super Saiyan Blue Vegito - who could only clash evenly with base Cumber, while in the manga Super Saiyan 4 Xeno Vegito appeared to be the weaker of the two versions of Vegito, as he was the one who could only clash evenly with base Cumber.

In the Extra Pack 2 Story Mode, thanks to Fu altering and messing around with the timelines, a post Tournament of Power Goku as your partner meets Vegeta and himself while they are training in Whis' arena of godly ki, both of whom are being manipulated by Fu. Vegeta opts to battle the Future Warrior as the concept of two Kakarots annoys him. During the fight, Fu begins to flood Goku and Vegeta with Blutz Waves and turns them into Super Saiyan 4, much to Elder Kai's dismay, to which the Goku working with the Time Patrol responds with Super Saiyan Blue and feels compelled to fight himself who is using a form he does not even know about. During the fight, it is also implied that Super Saiyan 4 Goku (whose Super Saiyan state possessed the mastered energy of a god and was close to awakening Super Saiyan Blue) has comparable power to Super Saiyan Blue Goku (from the Tournament of Power), with Super Saiyan 4 Goku having the advantage in power. However, both he and Vegeta inevitably lose the battle.

In the English version of a Gohan and Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta post-match quote of Dragon Ball FighterZ, Gohan states he has never seen anything as powerful as Super Saiyan 4.[17] This is not in the original Japanese version.[18]

"HahahahahI am the prince of all Saiyans. I could never allow my reason to be overpowered by the primal mind."
&#; Vegeta declaring his control over the Great Ape form

This form is a transformation from Golden Great Ape, achieved when a Golden Great Ape has achieved a "human heart" - causing the birth of this form, which has both the tremendous power of the Golden Great Ape and the reasoning of a "human heart".[5] Unlike the main Super Saiyan forms, a user of this form will always appear as an adult,[5] this is because this form raises the power of the user to their prime physical condition, the user will not only appear as an adult but also look considerably younger, similar to the way they did during their prime years, (e.g. Goku's skin turning back into its original peach color, Vegeta's hair becoming the iconic flame-like appearance he always sported through his prime years).

The Super Saiyan 4 form is first achieved by Goku in Dragon Ball GT after transforming into a Golden Great Ape and witnessing his granddaughter Pan crying to calm him down. In this new form, Goku has enough strength to dominate Super Baby Vegeta 2, whose attacks (including the Revenge Death Ball) have no effect on Goku in this form. However, after Baby Vegeta transformed into a Golden Great Ape, things are far more even but despite Baby Vegeta's new power (even gripping Goku between his hands Goku still broke out of it with minor difficulties). Eventually, the two have a double Knock-out. Baby Vegeta is rejuvenated by Bulma's Blutz Waves Generator, however, and Goku regains the full power of Super Saiyan 4 to face him.

Goku's next opponent upon achieving the form is Super 17, who has easily defeated the other Z Fighters and proved to be Super Saiyan 4 Goku's first real challenge. Because of his energy absorbing abilities, Super 17 is able to turn all of Goku's energy attacks into his own power, making him stronger with each attack. Eventually, Goku reverts to his base form and kills the android (with the assistance of Android 18) using his Dragon Fist attack followed by a Kamehameha.

Super Saiyan 4 proves to be incredibly helpful when Goku uses it to take down most of the evil Shadow Dragons. However, he meets his match in Syn Shenron, the strongest of the seven Shadow Dragons, who absorbs all of the Dragon Balls and becomes Omega Shenron. Omega Shenron's power proves to be far greater than that of a Super Saiyan 4, and Goku is thrashed around for most of the fight. Seeing how bad this situation has become, Vegeta uses Bulma's Blutz Wave Generator to grow a tail and become a Golden Great Ape like Goku. When he finally gains control, Vegeta is successful in becoming a Super Saiyan 4.

However, even as a team, Goku and Vegeta still stand no chance against Omega Shenron. It is not until they fuse into Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta that their power vastly exceeds that of the Shadow Dragon. However, Gogeta spends too much time playing around with Omega Shenron and the fusion wears off in ten minutes rather than the usual 30 minutes, due to his own tremendous power, ultimately failing to finish Omega Shenron off in time (but manages to land a Big Bang Kamehameha on Omega which made him regurgitate the Dragon Balls, reverting him back into Syn Shenron). Goku eventually kills Omega Shenron with the Super Ultra Spirit Bomb.

During the Dark Empire Saga, Xeno Goku and Broly Dark both utilize this form in their three-way battle with each other and Mira (Towa absorbed). Xeno Vegeta later uses this form against Demon GodGravy, though is unable to take him down due to his injuries, at the same time Xeno Goku uses the form against Demon God Shroom, but is at a disadvantage for the same reason. This leads to the two fusing into Super Saiyan 4 Xeno Gogeta to battle the demons.

Xeno Goku utilized this form for nearly the entirety of his appearance in the Prison Planet Saga of Super Dragon Ball Heroes, battling Super Saiyan Blue Goku with it. Xeno Vegeta also utilized this form for the entirety of his appearance and fuses with Xeno Goku to form Super Saiyan 4 Xeno Vegito. Xeno Vegito then battles and defeat Super Saiyan 3Cumber before defusing back into Xeno Goku and Xeno Vegeta.

In the Universe Creation Saga, both Xeno Goku and Xeno Vegeta take on this form while battling the mysterious Dr. W while in Hell. Xeno Goku uses his Kamehameha along side Xeno Vegeta's Galick Gun but the combined attacks cause no damage to Dr. W who claims that his analysis on the two are completed. He then takes the data that he has received to Janemba.

Super Saiyan 4 Broly is fought by Beat and his friends in the Dragon Ball Heroes: Victory Mission manga repeatedly, and acted as a minion for Genome, who wished to access the Dragon Balls. He was powerful enough to defeat Eis Shenron, Nuova Shenron (true form), and Rage Shenron (Electric Slime Body Build) with minimal effort, and also easily take out Super-Class Froze and Super-Class Beat, as well as being completely unaffected by attacks from the latter's Super Saiyan 3 form. During instances where he is present, he is also accompanied by a thunderstorm.

Dragon Ball Super&#;s Transformations Can&#;t Match GT&#;s Super Saiyan 4

Many fans still regard Dragon Ball Super's Super Saiyan God and Blue transformations as the fourth and fifth forms that the indigenous species of Planet Vegeta can unlock respectively, straight up ignoring Dragon Ball GT's proprietary Super Saiyan 4 (SSJ4) form. This undoubtedly comes as a result of GT being anime-only and involving numerous writers besides mangaka Akira Toriyama exclusively. Moreover, Toei Animation's Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru designed the overall look of SSJ4.

Dragon Ball Super clearly doesn't consider Dragon Ball GT canon, either. SSJ4 has yet to appear and Super Saiyan God and Blue have taken on many of the same qualities as their forgotten predecessor, severely lessening the possibility of it ever returning. But no matter how hard Toriyama might try to erase SSJ4, it is still vastly more compelling than any of the new Super Saiyan transformations.

The relationship between Super Saiyan God and Blue in Dragon Ball Super emulates the connection between the Golden Great Ape and SSJ4 in GT. Saiyans can only achieve SSJ4 after successfully transforming into the super versions of these monstrous creatures, as becoming SSJ4 essentially requires the power and appearance of the apes to be condensed into a humanoid form. Super Saiyan God is also the natural stepping stone to unlocking Super Saiyan Blue. It occurs when a Super Saiyan God goes Super Saiyan, hence why it was originally given the overly clunky name Super Saiyan Super Saiyan God.

Additionally, both how a Saiyan becomes a Super Saiyan God and how a Golden Great Ape turns into a SSJ4 requires the involvement of third parties. Ascending to a Super Saiyan God is contingent on a ritual that involves five righteous Saiyans channeling their ki to a sixth Saiyan. Similarly, the Golden Great Apes need to be exposed to so-called Blutz Waves to transform more than once, except for Goku, of course. However, Dragon Ball Super's rule only applies to the first time a Saiyan achieves their God form. The same isn't the case for SSJ4. Super Saiyan God also possesses a unique trait originally applicable only to SSJ4. Both forms can absorb the energy from attacks directed at them. But SSJ4 takes this to a level beyond God as the utilization of such a technique drains the latter's power unlike the former. SSJ4 can redirect this new energy to bolster a preexisting signature technique, like when SSJ4 Goku recycles Great Ape Baby's Revenge Death Ball Final into a 10x Kamehameha.

What made SSJ4 so innovative at the time was not only how it incorporated a super version of a classic and forgotten Saiyan form (i.e. Great Ape), but its overall design. Until that point, all Super Saiyan forms were aesthetically similar to the first, just slightly tweaking their signature golden hair to some degree. However, SSJ4 put an abrupt end to the then-beleaguered pattern by introducing a new innovative design that was fresh yet still looked like a Super Saiyan. Dragon Ball Super followed GT's example with Super Saiyan God with the user losing their natural bulk and appearing to shed some years off their face. Super Saiyan Blue, however, reverted back to old habits, with the color of the hair essentially being the only noticeable change.

Another standout feature of SSJ4 that far exceeds Super's forms includes how some Saiyans adopt a few of the Great Apes' characteristics, such as becoming colder or less rational. This resumed a traditional aspect of most Super Saiyan transformations where the personality of the Saiyan changes (usually for the worst), a phenomenon that the third level unfortunately dropped. Dragon Ball Super fails to continue this compelling tradition again, since God causes the Saiyan to react more levelheadedly. Although it's reassuring that mangaka Akira Toriyama adopted certain aspects of Dragon Ball GT's most innovative transformation for Dragon Ball Super's forms, it's upsetting that fans might never experience the epic nature of Super Saiyan 4 again.

Dragon Ball GT, not mentioned in the manga. The only way a Saiyan can attain Super Saiyan 4 is if he is already a Super Saiyan, can transform into a Golden Great Ape and regain conscious control over the form. This transformation is the ultimate combination of both the humanoid Super Saiyan and the Golden Great Ape. After this form is attained once, it can be accessed at any point. It is also hinted that only pure-blooded Saiyans can achieve this final and ultimate Super Saiyan transformation, as Baby had full consciousness while as a Golden Great Ape, but he still did not transform. However, Baby was a parasite, possibly halting the final evolution. Another possible reason for Baby's inability to transform is that since it was Vegeta's body, Vegeta needed to be fully conscious, which he was not because of Baby's control over him. It is unknown if Gohan or any of the other Human/Saiyan hybrids could ever reach this form, as they too had tails at birth. Somehow, the Elder Kai already knew about the Super Saiyan 4 form and its abilities. It was unknown if the transformation is possible to use if the tail is removed until Vegeta transformed to SSJ4.

Appearance and power[]

In this form, the Saiyan's hair color differs, the same goes for the tail and the body is covered in red fur. A Saiyan in this form also possesses a shadow trim around the eyes and over the eyelids that varies in color, such as crimson. The hair is lengthened, but not nearly as long as a Super Saiyan 3's. The aura in this form loses the arcs of electricity, instead becoming pure fire. However, in the case of the Fusion warrior Gogeta, the coloration of the aforementioned features seemingly switch, as Gogeta's hair became a bright shade of red whereas his fur became a dark shade of brown and the trim around his eyes were black instead of red. The massive power and speed enhancements brought on by this form easily make it the strongest Super Saiyan form in the series. For example, while Super Saiyan 3 Goku was almost unable to even phase Baby Vegeta, as soon as Goku transformed into a Super Saiyan 4, their roles in power became polar opposites, with Baby Vegeta being almost unable to hurt Goku at all. The users of this Super Saiyan transformation have signature techniques. For example, Goku develops an attack he calls "10x Kamehameha", as it is ten times (10x) stronger than the average Kamehameha Wave, while Vegeta, in his Super Saiyan 4 state, uses an attack he calls the "Final Shine Attack", which is a more powerful version of his Final Flash attack, although he is first seen using this attack against Super 17 with one hand.

Unlike the Super Saiyan 3's strain due to the utilization in ki, this form does not require as much energy consumption as Super Saiyan 3's, allowing the user to stay in the state at a much longer duration. It also appears that the form makes the individual larger in height and muscularity. In scenes with Goku standing next to others such as Gohan, Goten and Trunks, Goku appears much taller and bulkier than all of them, even though in his normal state, he is relatively the same size. A highly debated subject, many fans believe the Super Saiyan 4 form to be the true form of the Legendary Super Saiyan, first spoke of by Vegeta in the Namek Saga. Vegeta states in his monologue, that "the Super Saiyan could only maintain his maximum power in the transformed state". Also, Elder Supreme Kai appears to know of the Super Saiyan 4 form, cementing the thought that Super Saiyan 4 has existed before Goku attained it, most probably by a previous "Legendary Super Saiyan". The Super Saiyan 4 form even has enough power to break through a wish made with the Dragon Balls as it turned Kid Goku into an adult again.

Usage Edit[]

Goku, upon reaching Super Saiyan 4 for the first time.Added by BeadtmdcThe Super Saiyan 4 form was first achieved by Goku after transforming into a Golden Great Ape and witnessing his granddaughter Pan crying to calm him down. In this new form, Goku had enough strength to dominate Super Baby Vegeta, whose attacks (including the Revenge Death Ball) had no effect on Goku. However, after Baby transformed into a Golden Great Ape, thanks to Bulma, things were far more even but despite Baby's new power (Even gripping Goku between his hands Goku still broke out of it with minor difficulties). Eventually the two had a Double Knock-out. Baby was rejuvenated by Bulma's Blutz waves however, Goku borrowed energy from his friends and family and gained enough power to defeat Great Ape Baby, and finally finished the Tuffle with a powerful 10x Kamehameha. forcing Baby to flee Vegeta's body, and try to escape inside a spaceship. Just before Baby could escape, Goku fired a powerful Kamehameha wave up at the spaceship, hurdling Baby into the sun and finally killing the evil Tuffle parasite. Vegeta upon reaching Super Saiyan 4 for the first time.Added by BeadtmdcGoku's next opponent would be Super Android 17, who proved to be Super Saiyan 4's first real challenge. Because of his energy absorbing abilities, Super 17 was able to turn all of Goku's energy attacks into his own power, making him stronger with each attack. Eventually, Goku reverted to his base form and killed the android (with the assistance of Android 18) using his Dragon Fist attack followed by a Kamehameha.

Super Saiyan 4 proved to be incredibly helpful when Goku used it to take down most of the evil Shadow Dragons. However, he met his match in Syn Shenron, the strongest of the seven dragons, who had absorbed all of the Dragon Balls becoming Omega Shenron. Omega's power proved to be far greater than that of a Super Saiyan 4's, and Goku was thrashed around for most of the fight. Seeing how bad this situation had become, Vegeta used Bulma's Blutz Wave generator to grow a tail without having to wait for it to grow naturally. With a tail Vegeta was able to become a Golden Ape like Goku, and then when he finally gained control, he was successful in becoming a Super Saiyan 4. However, even as a team, Goku and Vegeta still stood no chance against the dragon. It wasn't until they fused into Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta that their power finally surpassed Omega Shenron's. However, Gogeta spent too much time playing around with Omega Shenron and the fusion wore off in minutes due to his own tremendous power, and he ultimately failed to finish him off in time (but managed to land a Big Bang Kamehameha on Omega which made him regurgitate the Dragon Balls, reverting him back into Syn Shenron). Goku eventually killed Omega Shenron with the Universal Spirit Bomb. It is unknown if, with proper training, Goku and Vegeta could have become powerful enough to match Omega Shenron without needing to fuse, as the saga ends with Omega's defeat and Goku leaving with Shenron.

Video games Edit[]

Goku, Vegeta, and Gogeta, in their Super Saiyan 4 transformation, also their strongest, appeared in several video games.

  • Dragon Ball GT: Final Bout (SS4 Goku alone)
  • Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 (SS4 Goku, SS4 Vegeta, SS4 Gogeta)
  • Dragon Ball GT: Transformation (SS4 Goku alone)
  • Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World (SS4 Goku, SS4 Vegeta, SS4 Gogeta)
  • Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi (SS4 Goku, SS4 Vegeta, SS4 Gogeta)
  • Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai - Another Road (SS4 Goku alone)
  • Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 (SS4 Goku, SS4 Vegeta, SS4 Gogeta)
  • Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 (SS4 Goku, SS4 Vegeta, SS4 Gogeta)

Trivia Edit[]

  • When transforming into Super Saiyan 4, both Goku and Vegeta lose their shirts, but when they revert back to their base forms, their shirts can be seen again (however, Gogeta still has his vest on when he is a Super Saiyan 4). The clothes are even repaired; in the Super 17 Saga, when Goku attempted to sacrifice himself, he reverted to his child state, and his gi was fully intact, when previously, it had been blasted off.
  • Goku rapidly ages back to an adult whenever he becomes a Super Saiyan 4. Upon transforming for the first time, Goku says, "This body and its amazing power is needed right now to defeat Baby."
  • When Goku goes Super Saiyan 4, his clothes change compared with his child clothes, including his size and his shirt part is removed by the transformation leaving him only with clothes up to the waist.
  • When Goku reverts back to his base form from Super Saiyan 4, Goku still has his tail yet, when Vegeta reverts back to his base form from Super Saiyan 4, his tail vanishes. This is most likely due to the fact that he achieved this form via non-natural means (ie, the Blutz Wave Generator) and not via the usual method of absorbing Blutz rays through his tail due to him not having a tail.
  • Only Goku and Vegeta (and Gogeta) were able to achieve this transformation.
  • It is hypothesized by Bulma that only full-blooded Saiyans can achieve the Super Saiyan 4 form; however, it is equally plausible that the part-Saiyan children of Goku and Vegeta merely never became Golden Great Apes by sheer coincidence, and that Vegeta did not originally transform in the Baby Saga because it was Baby himself, not Vegeta, that was in control. This would mean that any Super Saiyan that could obtain Golden Great Ape status could theoretically become a Super Saiyan 4.
  • It could be possible that Goku is not the first Saiyan to achieve Super Saiyan 4. This is due to the fact that Elder Kai already knew about the form.
  • There are three variations of Super Saiyan 4.
  • Goku's variation is the first to be seen. When he transforms into a Super Saiyan 4, he has scarlet red fur on the top half of his body, his hair turns black, and his eyes change to golden-yellow.
  • Vegeta's is the second seen variation. When he transforms into a Super Saiyan 4, his hair turns dark brown, the fur on the top half of his body is crimson red, and his eyes are green.
  • Gogeta's variation is a completely different coloration from Goku and Vegeta's. In this form, Gogeta's hair is red, the fur on the top half of his body is brown, and the eyes change to a blue color. The reasons for these alterations in Gogeta's Super Saiyan 4 form from Goku and Vegeta's forms are unknown.
  • Super Saiyan forms have gold hair, and the Super Saiyan 4 form does not. This could be a different type of Saiyan transformation though, but it has been officially stated to be part of the Super Saiyan line.

Super Saiyan 4: Dragon Ball&#;s Most Controversial Final Form, Explained

Dragon Ball GT introduced the Super Saiyan 4 transformation. Here's how it was achieved and why it may have inspired Dragon Ball Super.

Dividing fans since its debut in , Dragon Ball GT has largely been dismissed as no longer canon to the overall Dragon Ball due to Dragon Ball Super continuing the manga/anime property. However, the short-lived anime continuation does still have its own vocal fanbase, with characters and concepts that have since lived on beyond its run. The most notable of these concepts is Super Saiyan 4, the final Super Saiyan transformation seen in the series -- and one of the most controversial.

GT introduced the genetically engineered villain Baby, who was able to possess the minds of those he took control over. Deciding to use Vegeta as a host body, Baby easily defeated Goku, even at Super Saiyan 3 and after the Saiyan hero had regrown his tail to unlock his latent power. From their battlefield and the new Planet Plant, a beaten Goku stared into the Earth's horizon, triggering a transformation into a Great Ape as the sight of the full moon. However, having long since unlocked the powers of a Super Saiyan, Goku's Great Ape form took on a golden fur while becoming even more destructive than ever before.

RELATED: The Dragon Ball Z Scouter: What It Actually Does (and Why), Explained

Goku's granddaughter Pan helped calm her grandfather down, allowing the older Saiyan to fully master the Golden Ape transformation and consolidate it into a human form he dubbed Super Saiyan 4. No longer sporting a Super Saiyan's iconic golden hair, Goku was now a combination of his normal form with a more bestial state, reflecting the transformation's simian origins. Goku's body was covered in bright red fur, while his hair was long and black. By the end of the series, Vegeta similarly achieved this transformation after Bulma immersed him in Brutz waves, triggering his own Golden Ape transformation which he quickly mastered. Upon his debut as a Super Saiyan 4, Goku and Vegeta used the Fusion Dance to merge into the composite warrior Gogeta. Gogeta was also Super Saiyan 4 due to his components.

Due to the drastic visual differences and Vegeta skipping Super Saiyan 3 altogether, reception to Super Saiyan 4 was mixed, with some praising its unique design and inspiration from Saiyan genetic origins while others were put off by its departure in appearance and methodology through which it was achieved. Dragon Ball Super ignored this form entirely to introduce its own Super Saiyan God, Super Saiyan Blue and Ultra Instinct transformations -- through the canonical Legendary Super Saiyan form in the anime film Dragon Ball Super: Broly was conceptually similar to Super Saiyan 4.

While Broly lacked the combat experience of Goku and Vegeta, the Saiyan warrior was more than capable of fighting against his more seasoned counterparts in his base state, even while each of his opponents were transformed into Super Saiyan Gods. Broly's father Paragus theorized this was due to his son channeling the raw primal fury of a Saiyan Great Ape, as evidenced by Broly still possessing his tail. Similar to a Great Ape, Broly lost complete control of his actions to a berserker fury, which augmented significantly when he transformed into his Legendary Super Saiyan state.

Since the conclusion of GT, Super Saiyan 4 has only been seen in non-canonical video games, merchandising and the non-canonical tie-in anime series. While Broly was able to channel the power similar to a Super Saiyan 4 in his canonical debut, the actual controversial transformation is unlikely to be re-integrated into the franchise's official canon any time soon.
