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.

I have to ask, but how are you going to approach the power multiplier for Hitōzaru God? Are you going to make the multipliers for Hitōzaru and God stack with each, add the multipliers together, or do something else entirely?

The intention is for them to stack, but I honestly can't tell you how it will actually end up until I get there. The arcs after Buu are going to be written via a combination of desired plot and referencing battle powers from the previous arc as well as intended powers for the arc being written.

You do know that if you end up stacking them you're going to get a power multiplier in the millions, right?

Well, that would depend entirely on what I settle on as my multipliers for those forms.

Anyway, I should have been clearer. As things currently stand with the transformation (before I decide if I need to revise the chart), the intention is to stack the multipliers. It's still the pseudo God mode multiplier from before though, not the fully active SSG (his hair would be fully magenta if it were). Before the partial God forms were to try and make sense of Goku keeping the power in Battle of Gods, but I've just decided to say the hell with that. Now it's just Hitozaru nature of being able to combine traits of the user's transformations, which can include God. But the God form is it's own special, divine thing and so the full transformation can't be used in conjunction with anything else. It gets diluted, so to speak, by doing so.

So Hitōzaru God will still be weaker than Super Saiyan God?

Si. As things stand (future franchise content excluded for this statement), Super Saiyan God is in a league all its own. It ruly is a divine state of being and functions on a different type of ki, etc. None of the other forms can even hope to stand up to it. Not even Hitozaru while drawing on its divine power (and there will be some risks in using it that 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.
