Super Saiyan 3

'Bold text'
Super Saiyan 3 Goku

The stage that surpasses even Super Saiyan 2. It was first introduced by the series' main protagonist, Goku. When confronting Majin Buu in a stalling attempt, he soon realized that Super Saiyan 2 would no longer suffice. Goku then performed an Earth-shaking transformation which lasted for several minutes. The result was Super Saiyan 3. Goku's power proved more than a match for even Majin Buu. Goku however, didn't defeat Buu and instead announced a new challenger, after which he returned to the Lookout. Due to performing the Super Saiyan 3 transformation, Goku's remaining time on Earth greatly diminished as a result of the huge strain the form puts on the body. In the Other World, the Super Saiyan 3 form is said to be much easier to sustain. Throughout the remainder of the Buu Saga, Goku performed this transformation several more times, as well as in Dragonball Z movies 12 and 13, and Dragonball GT. The second character to perform this transformation was the fused warrior Gotenks, during his fight with Majin Buu.

[edit] Abilities

Super Saiyan 3 Gotenks

Goku didn't use any new techniques in this form but due to his greatly increased power level, his strength, speed, and reflexes greatly increase. The same applies to Gotenks.

[edit] Characteristics

A large amount of difference occurs when this happens, it's clear when Goku first time ever transforms into the Super Saiyan 3 stage and faces Buu and succeeds in damaging him. Unlike most transformations Saiyans perform, to achieve Super Saiyan 3, the Saiyan only has to increase his/her's Ki, Super Saiyan 3 is technically a forced transformation, but is considered a transformation anyway. When transformed, the hair grows up until the knees and there's no longer any eyebrows. The eyes of a Super Saiyan 3 are green and with blond hair. Soon enough, there's an aura revolving around the Saiyan, with lighting bolts surrounding the Saiyan.

[edit] Characters that used this transformation:
