Super Saiyan Red vs Super Saiyan Blue

Sharing is caring!

Many DBZ fans are confused about which form of Goku is more powerful.

Is Super Saiyan Blue more powerful than Super Saiyan Red or vice versa. Lets discuss.



It is said that a SSB transformation uses the power of Super Saiyan God  with the Super Saiyan form. This form can be accessed by absorbing the powers of god, activating them and then transforming into a Super Saiyan, or through vigorous ki control training. This form exceedingly surpasses its predecessor, Super Saiyan God or we can say Super Saiyan Red.

According to Akira Toriyama as well, SSB is when a Super Saiyan Red becomes a Super Saiyan.

In relation to Goku, Toriyama says on Goku he made his hair light blue to express how “by overcoming a certain limit he has become both strong and tranquil, able to keep his composure in a fight”

In Goku’s words, this form is what happens when a “Saiyan with the power of a Super Saiyan God further transforms himself into a Super Saiyan”. The form can be obtained by a Saiyan who has become a Super Saiyan God and then retained the power, if the Saiyan utilizes the might of Super Saiyan God, and then attempts to transform into a Super Saiyan, they will instead naturally evolve into a Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan (Blue or Rosé, depending on the inividual’s status).

In the recent episode  of DBZ i got a clearer picture that can differentiate these two forms.  


Goku appears as Super Saiyan Red in a battle against Universe 11 Pride troopers.


Whis, upon seeing Goku’s Red form says that he is faster than a  Super Saiyan(which is not god level)

He even points out that Super Saiyan Red consumes less stamina than Super Saiyan  Blue.

Then , as Goku’s fight against Dyspo progresses, Dyspo begins to overpower the Super Saiyan Red form. So Goku

very quickly changed to SSB form.

Goku shocks Dyspo in his new form. Dyspo backs off from attacking Goku and is surprised that Goku could read his

movements since Dyspo is considered to be faster than the speed of light.

On seeing this Whis also becomes surprised and indirectly says that SSB is more powerful and faster than SSR.



So finally it concludes that SSB >SSR.

But SSR looks way cooler than SSB.

What do you guys think??
