Hey everyone! In today’s post, I want to talk about Goku and his Super Saiyan Blue transformation. As you all know, the Super Saiyan transformation was unlocked by Goku during the Namek Saga, when he fought Freeza. Back then, this transformation was something that was considered to be the strongest in the Universe.
However, later, stronger enemies appeared, and because of that Goku and the rest of the Saiyans had to power up even higher. For instance, Gohan unlocked the Ssj2 transformation during his fight against Cell, or Goku displayed Super Saiyan 3 against Majin Buu. Later, in Battle of Gods, the concept God forms came in, and Goku was the first one to actually be able to use a God from among the Saiyans.
After getting the Super Saiyan God transformation, Goku took it a step beyond, and he was able to achieve Super Saiyan Blue, of Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan (SSGSS), as some people like to call it. This transformation is simply the Super Saiyan version when utilizing God ki. But one of the biggest questions is, why doesn’t Goku use Super Saiyan 2, or Super Saiyan 3 with God Ki. Why doesn’t he go Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan 2, or Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan 3?
We know that he’s capable of the transformation, so why doesn’t he do so? What holds him back? Well for one, the Super Saiyan transformations like Super Saiyan 2, or Super Saiyan 3 aren’t going to be used as much in Dragon Ball Super. This was mentioned by Akira Toriyama himself.
But most importantly, I believe that Goku doesn’t even have perfect control over the other two forms. The normal Super Saiyan is already straining on the body. When you talk about Super Saiyan 2, Goku hasn’t even mastered it yet, let alone Super Saiyan 3. His body can’t handle it for a long duration of time. So, with God Ki, it is obviously harder to do so.
In order for Goku to be able to use those two forms with God Ki, Goku needs to master the Ki control in both those forms. If he does that, I’m sure he’ll be able to pull it off, and once he can handle the strain it puts on the body, he can even stack Kaio-ken on top of it to make it even stronger. That’s it from me, guys. I’ll see you guys in another post soon.
