Super Saiyan (A type) is a Legendary Super Saiyan's own version of the first Super Saiyan form exclusive to a Legendary Super Saiyan under the control of Paragus' control ring. This Super Saiyan tranformation is an unnatural Super Saiyan state. Most media simply refers to this form as the first Super Saiyan (超サイヤ人 Sūpā Saiya-jin, lit. "Super Saiyan person")form.
This form is the result of a Legendary Super Saiyan not being able to tap into their true Super Saiyan power due to some kind of suppressant. In Broly's case it was the control ring placed on his head. Unlike the common Super Saiyan forms, this state possess blue hair (or, if the user is in a dark environment, purple/pink hair) and is inferior in power. However, even in this suppressed state, it is implied that Broly was still powerful enough to completely obliterate the South Galaxy.
Broly utilizes this form throughout the first half of Dragon Ball Z: Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan, when becoming enraged at the appearance and mention of Kakarot he takes on this form, easily taking the attacks of Super Saiyan Second Grade Vegeta without even flinching. He then proceeds to transform into Super Saiyan (C type) and then into Legendary Super Saiyan. Broly first assumed this form in a flashback shortly after Paragus placed the ring on him, where he attempted to grab Paragus's head with the intent to kill him, although the ring coming into full effect forced him to back off.
- Technically, this is the first Super Saiyan form to have blue hair, predating Super Saiyan Blue.
- In the level depicting the events of Dragon Ball Z: Broly - Second Coming in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2, Broly when in Super Saiyan is depicted in this version rather than the actual version used in the film.
- This was later fixed in Budokai Tenkaichi 3, where his Super Saiyan form has both the A type and the C type as selectable skins.
