Super Saiyan Level 1

Goku went SSJ1 for the first time in the Freeza Saga, after Freeza killed Krillin.

Physical description: Incredibly increased muscle mass, and his hair turns gold/blonde and stands up.

 A Saiyan is always born with a tail. As long as he keeps his tail, he can turn into a Oozaru  when he stares at a full moon. 

Super Saiyan Level 2

Goku achieved this stage in movie #3, when fighting Cooler. In movie #9, Gohan was told by Goku to go SSJ2, he tried to go SSJ2, but reached a more incredible stage, The Ultimate SSJ Level, doing so he killed Boujack and the rest of his crew. This level is incredibly more powerful than SSJ1.  SSJ1 proved inefficient in stopping Boujack's crew, and when Gohan reached SSJ2, he easily overpowered the aliens.

Physical description: Much greater muscle mass than SSJ1, and a few more inches of gold hair also pointing up. Occasionally accompanied by silver lightning.

Super Saiyan Level 3

Goku first achieved this level during a fight with Majin Buu. This is the most powerful level of Super Saiyan. Majin Buu could overpower SSJ3 Goku, but this level did destroy Fat Janenba in movie #12. 

Physical Description:   About 4 and half feet of gold/blonde hair and a larger muscle mass. Also in this form the Saiyan is very quick and fast.

 Only Goku and Gotenks have achieved this level. No other Saiyan's have achived it, but others have gone past this level (Vegita goes SSJ4).

Super Saiyan Level 4

This is actually not a SSJ level. They do have increased muscle mass. This is also the only stage with a tail ( Saiyans already have a tail, but they grow it back in this form). In SSJ4, Goku is almost god-like, and he can use "Times 10 Kame-hame-ha." or "Ultimate Kame-hame-ha".

Physical description: Although Goku was wished by the Dragon Balls to become a child again, in SSJ4 form, he has his normal adult body with a bit more muscle mass. His upper torso is covered in redish/brown fur, his hair is black, and his eyes are red rimmed.


  When a Saiyan stares at a full moon, he/she will change into a 45-foot tall, monsterous monkey called a Were-monkey (Oozaru, in Japanese, translates to "Big Monkey).  All Saiyan (excluding Goku and Gohan) will be able to control themselves during this stage. It doesn't matter which full moon they look at (in Dragonball GT, Goku turned Oozaru by looking at the full Earth from Space. And, Vegeta had the ability to create a pocket-sized full moon when he first arrived on Earth to fight Goku and Gohan that made him turn into the Oozaru.)

 A Saiyan must have a tail to be able to turn Oozaru. If the tail is cut off, they revert to normal. If the tail is pulled out by the roots, the Saiyan will not turn Oozaru ever again.

Golden Oozaru

A level that was achieved by Goku and Bedi-Vegeta in Dragon Ball GT. This is the most powerful form of Oozaru demonstrated by Goku in DBGT when he swatted Bedi-Vegeta all over Planet Plant (Bedi's recreation of the Tsufuru home planet.) The main physical difference with the Oozaru stage, is that the fur is yellow instead of brown.
