The Super Saiyan (A-type)[1] is part of a separate line of Super Saiyan transformations and has, thus far, only been displayed by Broly. It is an unnatural aberration of Super Saiyan that is the direct result of Broly's true transformation being suppressed via the ring around his head.


In this form, Broly's muscle mass increases slightly and, with his hair and eyes turning blue. His hair also stands straight up, like a traditional Super Saiyan. Unlike the common Super Saiyan forms, this state possesses blue/purple hair and black eyes when heavily suppressed, and blue hair and blue or red eyes at full power.


This transformation is an unnatural state that is the direct result of Broly attempting to adopt his Legendary Saiyan form, but failing due to the control device placed around his head by his father, Paragus.[1] Though his exact strength while in this form is unknown, he has been shown fighting a base state Son Gokū equally.

However, even in this suppressed state, it is implied that Broly was still powerful enough to completely obliterate the South Galaxy. Although not to the same extent as his Legendary form, the form also could dramatically increase its power over time. This is especially evident Broly's first fight against Goku: Goku at one point managed to kick Broly in the face hard enough for him to reel back and bleed from the mouth, but after being knocked into the lake, he managed to shrug off another kick to the face and even lick off another bloody wound inflicted from the kick, and then completely shrug off a punch to the face. Similarly, right before Broly transformed into the Legendary Super Saiyan state, he managed to completely shrug off a kick to the neck from Super Saiyan Vegeta as well as a direct hit from an energy blast shortly afterward (which was powerful enough to send Paragus flying, as well as for Goku to clear out of the area in a panic just prior to him firing it). It is heavily implied that the reason for this significant increase in power was due to Goku unknowingly damaging the crown during the fight.


  • Technically, this is the first Super Saiyan form to have blue hair, predating Super Saiyan Blue.
