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.
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."
- The original design of the Super Saiyan God having him wearing a cape, 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.
