This article is about the version of the form accessible by Saiyans who possess proper god status. For the version of the form accessible by ordinary Saiyans, see Super Saiyan Blue.

"How is this color? Isn't it beautiful? If I were to name it in your style, it would be... Rosé. Yes... 'Super Saiyan Rosé.'"
Goku Black after transforming.

Super Saiyan Rosé (スーパーサイヤじんロゼ Sūpā Saiya-jin Roze) is the Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan transformation of a Saiyan who is an actual deity, as such it matches Super Saiyan Blue in strength.[2] This form can only possibly be accessed by Saiyans who have proper god status.

This form is a counterpart to Super Saiyan Blue, and possesses a different hair color due to the user already possessing the status as a god prior to surpassing Super Saiyan God.[3]

In some video games, this form is simply referred to as being Goku Black's and Fused Zamasu's own version of the first Super Saiyan (スーパーサイヤじん Sūpā Saiya-jin) form, although with natural Godly ki.

Overview

Concept and creation

The Super Saiyan Rosé form was created by author Akira Toriyama uniquely for Goku Black, though he simply referred to it as a "Super Saiyan of a slightly different color than Goku."

Appearance

"Huh? Pink? Why is it pink?"
— Goku confused about the transformation's appearance.

Super Saiyan Rosé Black

Super Saiyan Rosé possesses the same aura seen in Super Saiyan Blue

In the anime, this state is identical to the first Super Saiyan form as well as Super Saiyan Blue in all but color. The hair takes on a pastel pink color with pure-white highlights, the eyebrows are light pink, and the eyes turn light gray although they appear light pink through the form's aura. The form also seems to possess the ability to turn Black's eyes pink, as seen when his eyes briefly turn pink at the climax of his first fight with Vegeta. The aura is dark red on the outside, transitioning into a more pink-ish color on the inside, the clothing gains a purple hue, and the user has a dark purple glow around their body. The form is also mostly depicted with a single loose strand of hair when compared to Goku's Super Saiyan hairstyle. Usage of this form also appears to greatly augment Black's techniques, including his Super Black Kamehameha and his signature Violent Fierce God Slicer, allowing him to extend it into various more elaborate shapes. His other techniques also change their usual appearance to match the form's.

When Fused Zamasu and Infinite Zamasu are in the Super Saiyan Rosé form, they possess white hair, instead of pink. Furthermore, Fused Zamasu in the anime possessed a colorful, primarily white, bright aura in his Super Saiyan Rosé state.

In the manga, the form is differentiated from Super Saiyan Blue in other ways. The hair is longer, spikier and fiercer than the normal Super Saiyan hairstyle. In addition, the aura is more jagged and flame-like than the aura of Super Saiyan Blue.

The form utilizes god ki, as it is the same form as Super Saiyan Blue. In the Super manga, it is noted by Future Zamasu that this form is pink in color due being what happens when a deity surpasses Super Saiyan God (with Blue being when a mortal surpasses it).

Usage and Power

"So this is what happens when a Divine being surpasses Super Saiyan God, instead of turning blue they turn pink."
— Future Zamasu's possible explanation of the transformation

The January 2017 issue of V-Jump ranked both Goku Black and Fused Zamasu in this form as a 12/12 on the danger scale.[4]

In the manga, as it is a Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan form, this state is achieved in the same ways as its Blue counterpart. Goku Black achieved the form when his power as a Super Saiyan surpassed Super Saiyan God, naturally progressing his Super Saiyan form into Super Saiyan Rosé. In the anime, he gained the form by simply integrating Goku's fighting style into his own. Dragon Ball Fusions does not list it as a Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan form, instead referring to it as Goku Black's version of regular Super Saiyan.

This form, like its blue counterpart, provides Black with precise ki control, needed to properly use the form. Unlike its Super Saiyan Blue counterpart, the ki control of Super Saiyan Rosé is so precise and efficient, again due to Black's status as a true god, that this allowed him to create various weapons of energy at will. Unlike Super Saiyan Blue, which needed additional training to fully master it, this form does not display any sort of stamina decrease. In the manga, Goku Black is shown using the form as much as he wants with no drawbacks, possibly because he already mastered Goku's power and also because he is a true god, and all he needs to do is keep increasing his power in this form. The form also appears to have no impact on the amount of time that Fused Zamasu can remain fused, unlike Super Saiyan Blue Vegito - who defused well before an hour had passed.

Rose Black Kamehameha

In the anime, Black first revealed Super Saiyan Rosé in his battle against Vegeta, Goku, and Future Trunks. Black fought against Vegeta as a Super Saiyan Blue and withstood his vicious assault and stabbed him with his energy blade. He then fought against Goku when he was transformed as a Super Saiyan Blue where Goku was able to hold his own but Black used his energy blade to pressure Goku. Once his ally Future Zamasu held down Goku and Trunks long enough, Black was able to take them both down with a single blast of the Black Kamehameha, which the Saiyans barely survived. In the Super manga, Goku Black attains this form by having his regular Super Saiyan form evolve into it, by powering up massively thanks to recovering from a near death experience Goku Black's ordinary Super Saiyan form powered up and then evolved into the Super Saiyan Rosé.

Black later shows off this form to Future Zamasu, to show that he does not need immortality and his strength is already satisfying as is.

Fusion Zamasu Full Body

Fused Zamasu in Super Saiyan Rosé

Fused Zamasu possessed a permanent Super Saiyan Rosé state, due to Black having remained in his Super Saiyan Rosé form when he underwent Potara Fusion with Future Zamasu. However, Fused Zamasu's Super Saiyan Rosé state possesses white hair, presumably inherited from Future Zamasu.

In the manga, after Fused Zamasu defuses both Goku Black and Future Zamasu are able to independently transform into Fused Zamasu, and thus possess this state. Infinite Zamasu has access to this form since the entity is simply a mutated version of Fused Zamasu.

Under any normal circumstances, living with a permanent power up of this magnitude, would be incredibly stressful and would drastically shorten one's lifespan. Due to Future Zamasu's immortality, this problem may be nonexistent; however, it is not confirmed. After the fusion, Zamasu's body in the anime does not regenerate in the same way it used to, due to Black's body not being immortal. He also loses energy in a rapid rate, a trait when fusing with a permanent power up. In the manga, however, the fusion due to Fused Zamasu fully retaining his immortality does not have any decrease in power, and was capable of lasting long enough to undergo the usual hour time limit of Potara Fusions for those who aren't officially considered Supreme Kais.

Rage empowerment

In the anime, Black is able to power up the Super Saiyan Rosé form through rage. He utilized his anger towards the "Mortals" to attain this state and used it to combat rage empowered Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta. With this power, his weapon forging abilities evolved once more as he created the Scythe version of the Violent Fierce God Slicer capable of - with some help from his Time Ring - creating a rift capable of spawning several "clones" of himself or in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 can create time anomalies strong enough to bring entities with ki similar to Black's.

Video game appearances

Super Saiyan Rosé Goku Black makes his debut appearance in Dragon Ball Heroes. The EX-Fusion with Broly - Karoly Black - utilizes a hybrid Legendary Super Saiyan/Super Saiyan Rosé form in Dragon Ball Fusions.

Trivia

  • The form was revealed to the world before it made its initial appearance in the anime due to a merchandise leak on Amazon Japan.
  • Future Zamasu gives a possible explanation of the form's color being due to a Saiyan possessing proper god status when they surpass Super Saiyan God, implying that it is likely that Goku, Vegeta, Vegito, or any mortal Saiyan Beyond God, could have obtained this form instead of Super Saiyan Blue had they held the position of a God such as Guardian (a position which Kami had once offered to Goku) or God of Destruction (as Whis considers them both to be candidates to replace Beerus, if he were to die) when they surpassed Super Saiyan God. It should be noted that Goku Black attained the form due to the fact he was originally Zamasu, the North Kai of Universe 10.
  • Fused Zamasu's, along with Infinite Zamasu's Super Saiyan Rosé forms possess white hair and have white auras, rather than the light pink hair and reddish/pink/purple aura that Goku Black has when he transforms into a Super Saiyan Rosé. The reason for this is never stated or even implied in either the Dragon Ball Super anime or manga. They presumably inherited white hair in his Super Saiyan Rosé form from Future Zamasu.
    • This can be possibly due to Fused Zamasu being an evil Saiyan hybrid. As hybrids such as Baby Vegeta and Super Mira, whose hearts are impure, possess this trait as well.
      • Interestingly, not a single character in either the Dragon Ball Super anime or manga itself ever reference, or otherwise note that Fused Zamasu or Infinite Zamasu are in the Super Saiyan Rosé form throughout their entire appearance in Dragon Ball Super.
  • This is the only Super Saiyan transformation (or the only transformation overall in the entire Dragon Ball franchise) that acts as 2 different forms in different media: In the Dragon Ball Super anime, as well as the Dragon Ball Fusions video game, Super Saiyan Rosé acts as Goku Black and Fused Zamasu's own version of the first Super Saiyan form, albeit with Godly ki. However, in the Dragon Ball Super manga, Super Saiyan Rosé is confirmed to be an equivalent of Super Saiyan Blue, with the different color for the form being explained by Future Zamasu that when a naturally divine Saiyan surpasses Super Saiyan God, the form results in a pink color instead of blue.
    • However, even in the Dragon Ball Super anime, Super Saiyan Rosé has Godly ki, due to Goku Black originally being the original Present Zamasu who stole Goku's body. Also, Goku Black stated to Goku shortly after transforming into Super Saiyan Rosé on-screen for the first time that "I've reached a level where a mere mortal cannot reach." This, coupled with the fact Goku Black has natural God ki, implies that even in the anime, Super Saiyan Rosé acts as a Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan form as well.
    • Furthermore, a promotional poster for the Dragon Ball Super anime depicting Goku Black in the Super Saiyan Rosé form states that Super Saiyan Rosé is a Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan form.
    • It is important to note that the Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan forms (Super Saiyan Blue and Super Saiyan Rosé) are simply the first Super Saiyan form combined with Godly ki, so it is accurate to consider Super Saiyan Rosé as the first Super Saiyan form as well.
