Power Stressed[1] is an enhanced state that can be taken on by Saiyans who have achieved a Super Saiyan form, or beings who can change their size and shape and also have Saiyan DNA (Cell).


Utilizing a Power Stressed state causes the user to use up energy and stamina at a rapid rate in exchange for increased power. By pushing it even further, the user can gain more power but at the cost of speed. The power of this state causes the user's muscles to bulk up.


With the basic Super Saiyan form, the first Power Stressed state is the Super Saiyan Second Grade and the second Power Stressed state is the Super Saiyan Third Grade.

Due to his Saiyan DNA, Cell can assume his own Power Stressed form, which he does to display to Future Trunks the flaws inherit in the form, and later when enraged at Super Saiyan 2 Gohan overpowering him.

In the anime, after forcefully spreading his disfigurement via the Light of Divine Justice, Fused Zamasu (who was in a Super Saiyan Rosé state) enters into a Power Stressed state via his anger, resulting in him almost being defeated by Vegito due to the decrease in speed he gained in exchange for his drastic increase in power. In the manga, Fused Zamasu powers up his Super Saiyan Rosé state greatly in an attempt to finish Perfected Super Saiyan Blue Goku, overflowing his power to the point that - according to Vegeta - even his immortal body would take damage.

In the anime during the Tournament of Power, Caulifla used this form to fight Goku, but she was unable to hit him due to lowered speed and overused stamina. She then stopped using this form when Goku explained the drawbacks, after-which he showed her the more preferable Super Saiyan 2 form.
