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.

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.

I think the concepts were easy enough to grasp from his drawings.

I have a question. If the God form could be achived if a saiyan was granted a position in the God hierarchy, then when Kami offered to give is throne as Gaurdian of the Earth to Goku, would Goku have become a Super Saiyan God, if he had accepted?

If Goku already had the blonde transformations at his disposal when he was made a god, he could have basically transformed into Super Saiyan God the moment the ritual was done. Those forms aren't required to reach the god mode, but they do make it a lot easier. Without them unlocked, he couldn't have just transformed the moment he became a god. He'd be able to feel the power and know it was there, but it would require a little bit of training to figure out the internal "locks" and tap into it. The training wouldn't be as hard as what they'd have to do to unlock the other Super Saiyan forms the hard way. It's mostly a spiritual, meditation thing this time.

I thought of a way to include Broli's Legendary Super Saiyan form. Basically, Broly can use a little godly Ki for some reason, but not enough to completely go Super Saiyan God. He mixes a little in with his Super Saiyan transformation, which powers him up greatly. However, since godly Ki is only supposed to be used by those without any evil, when Broly used it in conjuction with the rage-inducing and hate-filled Super Saiyan form, the godly power was corrupted and drove him insane. He wasn't really lying when he said he was the devil. Goku could mix them together because he long since got rid of the anger and violent tendancies in his own Super Saiyan forms. In short, think of Legendary Super Saiyan as an incomplete, corrupted Super Saiyan God.
