When used by the original version of Broly and Kale in the anime, it is their equivalent to an ordinary Super Saiyan.
Most media simply refers to this form as Super Saiyan (超サイヤ人 Sūpā Saiya-jin).
The appearance of Super Saiyan C-Type varies slightly with its user. For Broly, his eyes turn blue and his hair flares out and turns gold, much like the standard Super Saiyan form. Right before his first transformation into the Legendary Super Saiyan, Broly's hair flashed green as his mind control device shattered.
In the anime, Kale becomes slightly taller with noticeable musculature increases in mass and definition, but not nearly as much as the Legendary Super Saiyan. Her hair takes on a dull yellow tint compared to usual Super Saiyans in its first appearance. However, the aura retains the untinted golden hue of a typical Super Saiyan transformation. Her skin also becomes pale. In the manga, her appearance is relatively the same, though her eyes are blank and her hair more greatly resembles that of the Legendary Super Saiyan form, hinting that unlike in the anime, this form causes Kale to go berserk.
Usage and Power
In the Dragon Ball Z movies, in this form Broly is powerful enough to defeat both Goten and Trunks as Super Saiyans at the same time and is able to outmatch base Gohan, despite Gohan having powered up considerably since his previous encounter with Broly, though base Gohan is able to hold his own. Upon seeing Gohan turn Super Saiyan 2, Broly responded by taking on his Legendary Super Saiyan form.
This form is a Super Saiyan form with perfect energy control. It is very similar to and is a variation of the first Super Saiyan form, though it is of a different evolution. In the Dragon Ball Z films, this form is treated almost exactly the same as the regular Super Saiyan.
In the Dragon Ball Super anime, when Kale used the form she possessed enough strength to allow Kale to partake in the battle between Caulifla and Goku - who were both in the Super Saiyan 2 form, though it is weaker than the Legendary Super Saiyan form.
A user of this form cannot maintain the form while they are either in a coma or otherwise asleep unlike the Super Saiyan Full Power state, which is especially evident in Paragus' flashback to his outfitting the crown onto Broly, and later when Broly fell into a coma seven years prior. It is also noted that the legendary Saiyan is born strong enough to become a Super Saiyan. Aside from the standard gold hair, it also has various different hair colors depending on the lighting, including Auburn as well as pink/purple and lime green.
In the anime, Kale gained this form when rather than feeling self-loathing, she felt a greater desire to become better due to Caulifla's belief in her even in a dire situation, granting her control over her formerly Berserk form and also gaining this transformation. Kale utilized this form in battle with Kahseral's team of Pride Troopers, attaining it to break out of Cocotte's Cocotte Zone. She then uses it alongside Caulifla to clash with the Pride Troopers, before powering up into Legendary Super Saiyan. She later uses this form again in order to fight Goku in his Super Saiyan 2 form alongside Caulifla.
Broly utilizes this form in flashbacks of Dragon Ball Z: Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan, when becoming enraged at the appearance and mention of Kakarot he proceeds to transform from Super Saiyan A-type into C-type Super Saiyan (with green hair) - back to A-type Super Saiyan - and then into Legendary Super Saiyan.
Upon arriving on Earth in Dragon Ball Z: Broly - Second Coming, Broly transforms into this form, he utilizes it in his battles with Videl, Goten, Trunks, and Gohan until Gohan becomes a Super Saiyan 2, and thus Broly responds by becoming a Legendary Super Saiyan.
Video Game Appearances
- In the colored version of the Dragon Ball Super manga, Caulifla is mis-colored in one panel to have the C-type variation's hair color as a Super Saiyan.
- In Dragon Ball Super: Broly, when Vegeta transforms into a Super Saiyan, his hair first turned green for a brief moment before turning into the usual gold color. The same happens to Goku when transforming from Super Saiyan God to Super Saiyan Blue as he gained green aura for a brief moment before turning into a form similar to Ultra Instinct for a moment, then blue usual blue color.
