'Dragon Ball Super': Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan now called 'Super Saiyan Blue'


The events in Dragon Ball Super had a major development lately, with the release of the latest chapter of its manga, a new name for the Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan was coined, and families of both Lord Beerus and Whis were introduced, and the concepts of multiple Universes and multiple ‘Earths’ were teased, too.

With a detailed translation courtesy of Saiyan Island, the latest chapter of the Dragon Ball Super manga had Goku and Vegeta fighting while Whis observes them. In the heat of the moment, Vegeta charged up and transforms into Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan, making his hair blue with it.

Goku then transformed to Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan, too. He talked about the transformation but bit his tongue in the process, possibly due to the transformation’s long name. Goku asked Vegeta if they can do something about the very long name of the transformation. Whis then suggested, “How about… Super Saiyan Blue?”

The scene faded with a narration that also called the transformation with its new coined namesake: “In fact, a little while before this, the terrible emperor Freeza who had previously terrorized the universe came back to life and attacked Earth. However, after meeting Beerus and Whis, Goku and Vegeta received training from Whis, managing to evolve into Super Saiyan Blue, a form surpassing Super Saiyan God. And so they even managed to defeat the revived Freeza!”

The term Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan refers to the transformation done after someone achieves Super Saiyan God form, and then transforms once more into Super Saiyan. In the process, the hair gets its usual Super Saiyan look, only that now it’s colored blue instead of the usual yellow. This transformation form was first introduced in the most recent blockbuster film Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’.

The manga translation detailed also revealed that the fat look-alike of Lord Beerus is in fact his twin from Universe 7, Lord Champa. And the girl that looked like Whis is actually his sister, Vados.

The said story from the manga took place after the events of Resurrection ‘F’.
