Your Saiyan character has the ability to transform into the powerful Super Saiyan, an advanced transformation that increases a character’s combat prowess. Using the Super Saiyan transformation changes your appearance, the most noticeable change is your hair becomes a golden blond and stands on end, this flame-like look gives your hair the appearance of rising like fire. This color change applies to all your hair, your tail, and even fur if you have any. Your eye color also changes to a strong greenish blue. Moreover, your muscle mass and definition are greatly increased. You are also enveloped with a golden aura of energy the gives your skin tone a lighter appearance. Many Saiyan’s will similarly experience a slight change in personality, behaving more aggressively and prone to instincts. These appearance changes are a part of all stages of Super Saiyan, although some stages have more exaggerated features such a stage three having long golden hair down to the knees or Super Saiyan Four covering the major of your body with red fur.
When you attempt to transform into the Super Saiyan Form you must declare which stage of Super Saiyan you are going to use, stage one, two, three or four.
