Super Saiyan 3 is the third variant of Super Saiyan and the next in line to the SSJ 2 Transformation. This form removes every drop of potential from a Saiyan’s blood. Goku was the first to achieve the SSJ3 form.
Super Saiyan 3 transformation is to escalate the utilization of ki, and as a result, the change consumes far more energy than even SSJ 2. SSJ3 notably leads to extended levels of fatigue, even long after powering down.
As we know, SSJ3 just never quite felt right. It didn’t seem like a natural extension of the Super Saiyan line and Goku using it always extract his power too quickly. Whereas SSJ2 was just a powerful version of Super Saiyan that wasn’t even named when it introduced in the Cell saga, SSJ3 came out of nowhere.
As we know, SSJ2 and SSJ3 are just Variants or levels of the usual SSJ form itself, rather than being completely different transformations like Freiza.
Akira Toriyama stated in the Saikyō Jump’s June 2014 interview that Super Saiyan Powered up variants are SSJ2 and SSJ3 and that mastering Super Saiyan could increase its power beyond that of SSJ2 and SSJ3 without being exhausted.
I’m damn sure multiple guides and maybe even the manga state Super Saiyan 3. Can’t be achieved in standard conditions.
Goku was able to achieve it because he was dead at that time and Gotenks is a fusion body.
We have never seen Super Saiyan or Super Saiyan 2 transform with a tail before, but during the battle with Baby in GT, Kid Goku went Super Saiyan 3, his tail became gold in color just like his hairs.
The first sketch of Super Saiyan 3 by Toriyama had a Golden Tail, It kind of look like Goku from GT with a golden tail.
Nowadays, apart from GT, Most probably they are not going to reintroduce tails in the series.
In the Upcoming Dragon Ball Movies, I would love to see Goku and Vegeta get their tails back.
They were such a big part of Saiyans identity in the early days, after SSJ they became utterly pointless.
Honestly, this sounds like a cool idea. Tails are probably the coolest thing about Saiyans, not to mention that they are the only thing to distinguish them apart from humans.
All pure-blooded Universe 7 Saiyans are born with a tail that allows them to Change into an enormous Ape when they look at a full moon. Most of the Saiyans in the anime get their tails removed, but on some occasions, they grow back.
The Real Super Saiyan God Design Revealed
Super Saiyan God is one of the most popular form in Dragon Ball Super. We got our hands on the details of original Super Saiyan God design.
Super Saiyan God
Akira Toriyama Design:-
- Hair being pushed slightly up by a purple-red highlight
- Eyes are sharper, somewhat different retinas with purple-reddish in color.
- His body built becomes narrower than Super Saiyan.
- His aura becomes more flame like and explosive in appearance.
- This transformation holds Godly Ki which can only be sensed by gods.
In an interview with the Battle of Gods character designer Yamamuro. Initially, he wants to give muscular form with wearing a cape and a unique Saiyan hairstyle in between Super Saiyan 3 and 4 to the Super Saiyan God transformation.
The series’ original author, Toriyama, came up with a picture of SSJ God that was completely different than Yamamuro’s initial muscular design. He discussed it with Toriyama before settling on the final design, and Toriyama was insistent on the design not being too different from Goku’s usual appearance, specifically not being muscular.
When the red-haired Super Saiyan God transformation was discovered it surpassed the SSJ3 transformation. The Super Saiyan God Transformation was obtained through a ritual of Six Saiyans with an honest heart.
However, In the Anime, he does not hold the hands with the rest of Saiyan, but instead, they channel their energy to him.
In the anime, Super Saiyan God form could heal its user. When Beerus stabbed Goku with his bare hand, Goku was able to recover his wound because of SSG form.
In the Dragon Ball Manga, Vegeta reveals that he can become Super Saiyan God at will.
According to Vegeta, he obtained this transformation during his intense training with Whis and thus allows him to possess Godly Ki.
