It worked. The power of Super Saiyan Blue combined with Kaiōken! If I made a mistake while doin' this, I might've ended up dyin'! But it looks like I was able to perfectly control it. Kaiōken... is my trump card!

The Super Saiyan Blue Kaiōken is a technique that combines the fighting technique, Kaiōken, created by the Kaiō of the North, and Super Saiyan Blue, which Gokū created for the purpose of fighting Beerus.



Gokū in this enhanced state.

This technique drastically increases the power output of the Super Saiyan Blue transformation by boosting it with the power of a Kaiōken. Due to the fact that the Super Saiyan Blue form is comprised of great ki control, Gokū can utilize the Kaiōken with it. Gokū has been seen pushing this technique up to a ten-fold Kaiōken enhancement. His speed receives such a boost in this state that he is able to overcome Hit's Time-Leap technique.

In the manga, Gokū applies the principles of Kaiōken to the Perfected Super Saiyan Blue, resulting in a dramatic increase in his power. Jiren compares the transformation to Kale's Legendary Saiyan form. While the appearance of this technique differs from its anime interpretation, Kulilin confirms that it is, in fact, the Kaiōken.[2]


Gokū has limits on how long he can use this technique, as it can even undo his Super Saiyan Blue transformation. After the technique expires, Gokū experiences extremely painful muscle spasms and temporary paralysis.[3] He also contracts Delayed Onset Ki Disorder as a direct result of this transformation. Furthermore, Gokū states the technique is, as of the moment, incomplete, and has only ten percent chance of working properly.[4]


I'll show you what it looks like when I've gone passed my limits!

After accumulating more experience with this technique, through further training, these weaknesses disappear as Gokū's body becomes accustomed to the strain. He is able to use it against the merged Zamasu despite the injuries he'd suffered, and again during the exhibition match prior to the Tournament of Power, where he's able to use Super Saiyan Blue Kaiōken without any drawbacks against Bergamo.
