Transformations in Dragon Ball:
Throughout the years, Dragon Ball has given us some really cool transformations. But fans have been asking for more and Akira Toriyama is finding it hard to deliver now. So the fans took it upon themselves to come up with some fan-made but very potent forms that could change the entire ball game that is Dragon Ball.
1. Great God Ape
The Oozaru or Great Ape form is the ultimate Saiyan technique. It gives any Saiyan an incredible boost in strength and speed making the guy turn into a huge ape-like figure that mas massive destructive and explosive potential. Broly showed the actual power of the Great Ape form when he turned into the Legendary Great Ape form, where he turned into his Oozaru state all the while entering into the berserker and unstoppable Legendary Super Saiyan form. The Great God Ape would have been an even more potent transformation. It was supposed to combine the Super Saiyan God’s power with the energies of the Great Ape form.
2. Super Saiyan 6
The Super Saiyan 6 is special because it was actually a concept art created by none other than Akira Toriyama him-self, the very creator and father of Dragon Ball. He had plans to incorporate this form into the fabric of Dragon Ball after Dragon Ball GT. Since Dragon Ball GT tanked and was reviled by all Dragon Ball fans, Super Saiyan 6 never got to see the light of day. Dragon Ball GT will always be remembered for the new transformations and an amazing villains’ roster. The Super Saiyan 6 transformation, which combined golden hair with the Super Saiyan 4 transformation, would have been the ultimate pick of the litter.
3. Super Saiyan Rose Evolved
The Super Saiyan Blue transformation is one of the most epic forms ever seen in Dragon Ball Super. Both Goku and Vegeta mastered it but have since digressed from the Super Saiyan mantle. Goku is learning Ultra Instinct while Vegeta is trying to master Spirit Control. Although the latter has mastered Super Saiyan Blue evolved – the final Super Saiyan Blue form, the form itself seems to have the very little scope in Dragon Ball’s future. To invigorate new life into the Super Saiyan mantle, we have the Super Saiyan Rose evolved. Super Saiyan Rose was the Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan transformation of Goku Black. Imagine if he could access a similar level of power as Vegeta did!
4. Namekian God
Namekians have the innate ability to merge with each other. We have already seen it in action. Nail merged with Piccolo that gave the latter a power well beyond anybody’s imagination. Namekians can fuse indefinitely. Their fusion ability is so powerful that every Namekian can fuse together into one Namekian, giving the latter individual entity the power of an entire race! That forms the very basis of the Namekian God technique. The Saiyans had their own legend in the form of the Super Saiyan God technique and it turned out to be real when Goku became one. Namekians are also an ancient race and they must have something up their sleeve just like the Saiyans did. Maybe to protect themselves from ever being picked on again, they fuse with Piccolo to turn him into the Namekian God.
5. Frieza Grey God Form
Dragon Ball has always been about transformations. Every hero and villain has undergone some level of change, both literally and metaphorically in the series. Frieza is one of the greatest examples of that trope. Frieza revealed multiple forms of himself during his fight with Goku on Namek. During the Tournament of Power arc, Frieza showed the true might of his Golden Form, a new transformation Frieza learned after starting to train for the first time. Well, Frieza trained for the first time in his life and transformed into his Golden form. What if he trains some more? Will he gain a new form if he pushes himself further? Fans claim that the answer is yes. One fan theory even claims that Frieza’s new form after his Golden form could be called the Gray God form.
6. Great White Ape
Although just a technique the Ultra Instinct ability does give Goku white toned hair! All Saiyans have the ability to transform into their great ape form which gives them an enormous increase in destructive power. Some Saiyans are so adept at the Great Ape form that they do not even need to be under a full moon to do it. They can just do it voluntarily and access the Great Ape power of their own volition like Vegeta and Broly. Goku though does not have the power to transform into a Great Ape since he no longer has his tail. But you never know what might happen in Dragon Ball in the future. We have already seen the Golden Great Ape form in the now non-canon Dragon Ball GT. What’s to stop Toriyama from combining the Great Ape with Ultra Instinct to create an absolute monster?!
7. Super Saiyan Blue 3
The Super Saiyan God transformation was the first transformation that actually pushed the limits and boundaries of the Super Saiyan form beyond mortal realms. Goku fought Beerus to a standstill with this much power. But the Super Saiyan God transformation came with massive flaws. To eliminate those flaws, Goku and Vegeta mastered Super Saiyan Blue, by combining Super Saiyan God with the original base Super Saiyan transformation. The Super Saiyan Blue has multiple levels. Vegeta unlocked Super Saiyan Blue Evolved through sheer will and desire to improve as a warrior. A fan theory states that what Vegeta sub-consciously did was combine the Super Saiyan God transformation with the Super Saiyan 2 form. Since Goku does know how to become Super Saiyan 3, he could combine it with Super Saiyan God to turn into a Super Saiyan Blue 3.
8. Legendary Super Saiyan God
No matter how powerful Broly gets the one thing that sets Goku and Vegeta apart from the muscular behemoth is the fact that the former two can access and manipulate Godly Ki. Much more potent and refined than normal Mortal Ki, Godly Ki grants an incredible power upgrade and is more efficient than Mortal Ki. In his Legendary Super Saiyan form, Broly holds the power to take down a galaxy with his Omega Blaster technique. If the guy manages to unlock the secret Super Saiyan God technique, gaining access to Godly Ki just like Goku and Vegeta did, there might be some hope for the green giant in the future of the Dragon Ball Universe. Considering the rumors that Broly is about to become a Z Fighter, the Legendary Super Saiyan 3 form would do the guy justice.
9. Legendary Super Saiyan 3
The Legendary Super Saiyan form is the true Super Saiyan form. It is what made Broly such a famous name in Dragon Ball’s history. Once a technique that was common to ancient Saiyans, the Legendary Super Saiyan form grants an immense power boost but comes at a great cost. The user of the Legendary Super Saiyan form loses all sentience and enters a berserker rage mode, which makes the user attack anyone in sight regardless of friend or foe. The Legendary Super Saiyan form was enough to give Broly the power to fight both Goku and Vegeta in their Super Saiyan Blue forms. Despite having no formal martial arts training unlike Goku and Vegeta, Broly proved that his brute force was enough to utterly destroy the two of the greatest Martial Artists in the history of Universe 7. If Broly could somehow unlock Legendary Super Saiyan 3, then this would completely change the game.
10. Super Saiyan Blue Ultra Instinct
This might actually be possible in Dragon Ball. But from the looks of the recent Moro arc, it is being indicated that Goku is slowly moving away from the domain of the Super Saiyan and focusing on a whole new discipline – the Godlike Ultra Instinct ability. Goku has currently only learned how to master Ultra Instinct Sign, the first stage of the technique of the Gods. The technique has multiple stages. Goku has revealed to be still learning since he is yet to find a way to sustain Ultra Instinct for a longer period of time before he runs out of Godly energy. Super Saiyan Blue allows Super Saiyan to sustain the Godly Energy within a mortal vessel by granting near-absolute Ki Control to the point one can completely stop the flow of Ki out of his or her body. The two techniques seem like a perfect match. But Akira Toriyama has other plans for Goku and it is but a distant dream now.
