Goku utilizes this form in Dragon Ball Z: Super Android 13! by transforming into a Super Saiyan while he creates a Spirit Bomb, and then proceeding to absorb the Spirit Bomb into himself because of the impurity in his heart. While utilizing this form Goku becomes greatly empowered - however he is unconscious while using it and as such his actions are not his own. He did this as a last resort against the titular form of Android 13.
