DBR Saiyan Transformations by The-Devils-Corpse DBR Saiyan Transformations by The-Devils-Corpse
Showcased
Base Saiyan, False Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan 2, Super Saiyan 3, Ōzaru, Super Ōzaru, Hitōzaru (Super Saiyan 4), Legendary Super Saiyan God, Legendary Hitōzaru God (Super Saiyan 4 God)

Notes:
Everything is fairly self explanatory, I think. Though I will clear up some issues for new comers:

Where is Legendary Super Saiyan?
I really dislike the idea of Broli's "Legendary" Super Saiyan form from the original franchise. It really served no purpose other than to confuse the fans. That being said, I've discarded it. I've applied the traits unique to the form to Broli himself and swapped him over to the standard, buffed-up grades of the Super Saiyan transformation like Vegeta and Trunks used during the Cell Arc, only without the drawbacks due to his unique traits and body proportions. This works much better in my opinion, as it was Trunks' Super Saiyan grade 3 form that spawned the idea for Broli in the first place. Also, seeing how he was given a buffed-up version of Super Saiyan 3 in games a couple years ago, I've also created graded stages for Super Saiyan 2 and 3, but they will be exclusively used by him.

Why is Super Saiyan 4 called Hitōzaru?
Hitōzaru, or "Super Saiyan 4", is obviously not a linear transformation from the others. The GT Perfect Files guides even state that it is something entirely different and was only named "Super Saiyan 4" out of convenience, so that's what's going on in the project. Characters in-universe will still call it Super Saiyan 4, but the official terminology for it will be Hitōzaru. As for the form and its traits, well it's something pretty similar in function to the Elder Kaioshin's power-up that was preformed on Gohan...kinda. The short version; Saiyans take this form when they try to mentally master Super Saiyan and Ōzaru, with a successful transformation creating a new Base-like state that has none of the drawbacks from the other forms (power drain, stress, rage, etc). So long as a Saiyan has a tail and has unlocked Super Saiyan, the first transformation can happen from any of the four forms; Base, Super Saiyan, Ōzaru or Super Ōzaru. The latter requires the least amount of effort by far, since it's easier to try and reign in the transformations when both are already active.

How about that Super Saiyan God?
Super Saiyan God is unlike anything else a Saiyan can achieve; altered physical traits, effortless to maintain and grants unimaginable power, but it only lasts for brief periods at a time. Unlike the ritual in Battle of Gods though, I've changed it so that instead of the transformation granting the user "Divine Ki", the form is only achievable when a Saiyan has Divine Ki. Such ki can only be obtained by actually being granted a position in the Dragon Ball god hierarchy. I've also tacked on the word "Legendary" to the name, for now anyway, because of it's truly forgotten place in Saiyan lore.

I have to ask, but if the God Ki enhanced forms no longer exist, then why is SSJG still referred to as LSSJG in this?

Also, I'm not sure if anyone has asked you yet but what is your take on the Super Saiyan-esque form that Goku used on the Ginyu Force in Hell?

Actually, now that I think about it, I may just need to reevaluate most of the chart again now that BUFF SS4 Broli is on the way.

Your guess is as good as mine. All I did was take out the hybrid god forms for the time being and then reorganize the chart to make sense after that. I haven't actually addressed anything else about the situation though. Especially not with another movie on the way and having no idea what it's really about or if this form will play a part in it. If it looks like Super Saiyan God isn't going to be used anymore, then I guess I'll start thinking about how I want to handle it now. xD

It's nothing. Officially just Goku going Super Saiyan, but they decided they wanted to have Goku hide the form from Paikuhan till the tournament at the last
minute. So the animators digitally recolored the hair to black because they didn't have time to reanimate it. Thus it's now just "poorly" animated base Goku.

Well actually, about that last thing, Dragon Ball Heroes actually has an ability for several base Goku cards named Super Saiyan power, which makes it so that if Goku transforms on the second turn after an attack, power is +2000 (or +5000 if it is greatly successful).  One of the cards for this actually has Goku in the same state he used against the Ginyu Force, spiky black hair that's styled like his SSJ hairdo and everything.

Yes, i know. Even though it basically goes along with the series (which is nice), what the game does is still pretty much irrelevant to anything else. I'm not going to base my interpretation of any events off of what they do with a card game (especially not art that has no impact on anything and is just to make the card desirablem as wekk as an ability that basically all Saiyans that have more than one form are given access to). I'm going to base it off of much more important information. This time they basically just happen to overlap.

Technically speaking, it's for a video game that uses cards, though I get what you're saying. You should have seen what the actual trading card game did with the Super Kaio-ken; they basically made it so that you could use it with every single one of Goku's forms, which in the game were SSJ, ASSJ, SSJ2, SSJ3, Golden Ōzaru, and SSJ4. Though the thought of a giant, glowing red baboon flying at you at Mach 80 while screaming at the top of its lungs just amuses me for some reason.

Nice job! This does clarify things a bit! Though I disagree about the LSSJ concept. They said the first appeared about 1000-3000 years ago (depending on the dub)- and some believe it might have taken the form of a golden Oozaru like the anime showed. But who knows for sure? Maybe someone will ask Toriyama himself.

You can disagree with whatever you like, but more importantly, I think you're confusing concepts here. I'm removing Broli's "Legendary Super Saiyan" form, which has absolutely nothing to do with any of the other stuff you're talking about (all of which is attributed to the "Legend of the Super Saiyan"; not the same thing) and never has.

Here is Toyble's take on this in his DBAF comic, which I translated. He uses a pretty similar style of chart but just a different take on it.
