Super Saiyan 4 Form Explained!!

A Secret to Super Saiyan 4's Transformation with Ki Consumption, Artificial Moon, and More!

Welcome, Dragon Ball fans!

Today, I will do a full breakdown of the Super Saiyan 4 transformation and how the form is created.

So, without further ado, let’s dive in!

Golden Great Ape Goku

Now the only way a Saiyan can achieve the Super Saiyan 4 form is if they become a “Golden” Great Ape and regain full consciousness of the form. In Dragon Ball Heroes, Broly also has a Super Saiyan 4 Great Ape form, which is ridiculous in itself. 

So let’s continue!!

Blutz Wave Generator

Now even after you obtained the Super Saiyan 4 once, it still can’t be accessed for a Blutz Wave Generator, which Vegeta used to transform. 

Now, let’s discuss further what are “Blutz Waves” and what they do! 

So Blutz Waves is an energy source emitted by large celestial bodies, such as the “moon” or even the “earth”, as in the case of Dragon Ball GT when it reflected the rays of sunlight.

Now in order for the Great Ape transformation to occur, a Saiyan must absorb 17 million Zenos, which is used to measure the celestial light through the retina. Then a reaction occurs in a cell that will cause a Saiyan to undergo a transformation into a Great Ape.

Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta

If the moon is not present, there are other ways to create an “artificial moon” to allow Blutz Waves to be created. As we saw from Vegeta in the Saiyan saga, he created an artificial moon and throw it in the sky to transform into a Great Ape. Now, Blutz Waves are basically a Saiyan’s best friend and it does not have any chemical side effects, and the device was created by Bulma, who is an inventor. 

If a Saiyan were to receive extra Blutz Waves, it will raise their power far beyond their usual power level. The device can also heal a Saiyan’s wound as well, as long as they receive a good amount of Blutz Waves during that time.

Super Saiyan 4 Designs

The Super Saiyan 4 design was actually created by Toei Animation designer, Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru, who made most of the Dragon Ball GT character designs. The Super Saiyan 4 form itself is a combination of a Super Saiyan and a Great Ape transformation, which obtains a “Golden” Great Ape form. 

This gives a Saiyan raw, primal power while letting them retain their human appearance. This form also grants the Saiyan with super strength and super speed of a Great Ape, along with a clever and alert mind. Although for some, it can make them even more cold and aggressive.

Super Saiyan 4 Goku

Now in most cases, the fur will be red and the hair color is black. Also, the shadow trim around the eyes and over the eyelids has other colors as well, such as: red, orange and yellow.

Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta

As with the case of Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta, his color palette basically switches as his hair is red and his fur a darker brownish, black tone. The trim around Gogeta’s eyes switches from red to black as well. Also, the Super Saiyan 4 form maximizes its powers to their maximum limits.

After Goku was given power by Gohan, Trunks, Goten, and Pan, his power increased even further. Goku gained a red aura and became completely superior to Golden Great Ape Baby. This is called a “Full Power” Super Saiyan 4. Unlike the Super Saiyan God form, this form allows a Saiyan to seemingly absorb energy attacks when we saw Goku absorbed Great Ape Baby’s attack.

Now, the Super Saiyan 4 does comes with its benefits over the other Super Saiyan forms with huge power increases.

Unlike Super Saiyan 3, which requires an intense amount of ki to maintain the form. Now, Super Saiyan 4 does not require as much energy and ki as Super Saiyan 3. Although Super Saiyan 4 does not rely on as much ki as Super Saiyan 3, you can still be knocked out if your energy is too low.

Now, the ki consumption does get extremely intense when the Super Saiyan 4 form is combined with a “fusion dance”, which shortens the time limit.

So that is how Super Saiyan 4 is created!
