Dragon Ball's Newest Super Saiyan Name Was A Mistake

Dragon Ball's Newest Super Saiyan Name Was a Mistake

The newest Super Saiyan form is Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan. Which sounds silly, yes. That's why, as Kotaku previously reported, it was changed in the manga. Now the most recent Dragon Ball Super is following suit. As mentioned before, a Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan is when a Saiyan gets the power of a Super Saiyan God and then becomes a Super Saiyan. The result is Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan (スーパー サイヤ人 ゴッド スーパー サイヤ人) or SSGSS. The form was revealed in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F.

In the most recent Dragon Ball Super episode, Vegeta faces off against Cabba and then transforms.

In a manga issue last spring, Goku asked Vegeta if they could do something about the long Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan moniker, and Whis replied, "How about... Super Saiyan Blue?" Looks like that is now the official, preferred form in anime, as the previous SSGSS naming was simply too ridiculous and confusing.

    I'll always be a fan of calling it Super Cyan.

      I was going with Super Dooper Saiyan, but your name is way better :-)

      I had to resurrect this old comment account to up vote this.

      You, sir, won my internet today.

    Never understood how the original name was invented in the first place. Their species is named Saiyan. Super Saiyan uses the word super to describe a form said species can attain. A god form of said species would thus be Saiyan God not Super Saiyan God. A Saiyan God achieving super status would logically be Super Saiyan God. I can live with Super Saiyan Blue though.

    Next one will probably be, Super Saiyan Jesus fucking christ is that a super saiyan? saiyan

    Dragon Ball leading up to the end of the Freeza Saga was pretty compelling as a kid because the whole 'Su-pa Saiya-jin' thing meant something; Vegeta had gone on about it being this legend going back millenia for the Saiya-jin and so when Goku makes the transformation it's seriously epic.

    But like most things, popularity effectively ruined it by forcing it to go on and on and encourage escalation. So by the time we get to the end of the Z series litereally everyone with a bit of Saiya blood in them is now easily able to become a star busting golden god, which makes the very notion of the legend utterly meaningless and calls into question why at the very least a small proportion of the Saiya-jin on planet Vegeta weren't constantly reaching this level.

    The logical conclusion of keeping all this progression going is that you have to come up with newer and more fantastical levels of supa- 'saiyajin-ness' which leads us to this BS we have now with SSGSS, which frankly not only just sounds absolutely ridiculous but just further undermines what these power levels mean and also the entire early cannon of DBZ.

    The whole super saiyan nomenclature is a god damn mess.
