The Original Super Saiyan God (初代の超サイヤ人ゴッド Shodai no Sūpā Saiya-jin Goddo) was an unnamed, righteous Saiyan who once took on the Super Saiyan God form.


The original Super Saiyan God appeared identical to Vegeta, even wearing the same armor as him.


According to the story, the Original Super Saiyan God was righteous and wanted to defeat all of the evil Saiyans. Using the power of five other pure-hearted Saiyans, the Saiyan took on the Super Saiyan God form in order to fight and overwhelm the evil Saiyans of Planet Vegeta, eventually failing due to the form's time limit. 

Many years later, after being asked by Goku how to attain the Super Saiyan God transformation, Shenron tells the Z Fighters, Beerus, and Whis the story of the Original Super Saiyan God.


The Original Super Saiyan God was incredibly powerful due to his Super Saiyan God state. He was seen battling against Great Apes and dodging most of their attacks, proving his immense power, but his power ran out "as quickly as it came."


  • Flight - The ability to fly using ki.


Great Ape

Super Saiyan God

  • The original design of the Super Saiyan God having him wearing a cape,[1] and the original Super Saiyan God fighting evil Saiyans on Planet Vegeta are very similar to the Guardian of Planet Vegeta (god wearing a cape) wanting to destroy the Saiyans because of their evil behavior and described in King Kai's story about the destruction of Planet Vegeta.[2]
  • The Original Super Saiyan God looks strikingly similar to Vegeta, this is uncommon among most Saiyans and it may suggest that Vegeta could be related to him. Strangely, in the scene of Goku turning Super Saiyan God during the ritual, the original Super Saiyan God even appears wearing the same clothing as Vegeta.
