As the waves from the orb meet his gaze, a huge flash of golden light is unleashed. This light shines as bright as a supernova and blinds Frieza. When Frieza is able to see again he is startled by a massive roar. He looks up to see a massive golden ape towering over him. Frieza has no time to react and gets grabbed by the head and slammed into the ship. The ship explodes instantly and Frieza is knocked all the way down to the ground of the planet.

It is unknown if the blast waves from the Golden Great Ape can be strengthened like the Ki-based techniques. Fire Breath : Like the normal Great Apes, they can use this ability. The Golden Great Ape user fires a gigantic blaze that severely incinerates the surrounding area and any foes within it.
Baby could use Ki-based blasts in the Golden Great Ape state because of the elite level Vegeta holds. Rush Attacks : They can also attack their opponents by inflicting high physical damage. Flight : Depending on who the user is, Golden Great Apes can levitate like other fighters. Speed : Depending on who the user is, Golden Great Apes can also be faster than some other giants.
Other Techniques : Depending on who the user is, they could also perform other actions that a human-sized fighter would do. The lighting in the scene makes it difficult to tell whether it is a Golden Great Ape or the weaker, regular form.
In Dragon Ball Online , a Saiyan cannot be transformed to this form if the one is using a mask provided by the Time Breakers, since it blocks the Blutz Waves, no matter how much time one spends looking at the moon. However, in Dragon Ball Heroes it is shown that if the mask is broken then the Saiyan's ability to transform is also restored as shown when Time Breaker Bardock transforms after his mask is broken.
In Dragon Ball Super: Broly , Paragus warns Beets against staring at Vampa's moon and points out to Beets who had never transformed that the form should only be used as a last resort indicating that experienced Saiyan warriors generally avoid transforming unless absolutely necessary especially if they lack complete control over it. Saiyan it instead multiplies it by four. It is unclear whether the speed rises in proportion, but according to Goku, at the very least the Saiyan remains as fast as they were before the transformation.
A Saiyan's tail will not grow back if they have surpassed the power of their Great Ape form in their base form. Bardock middle along with Tora on the right and Fasha on the left beginning their attack as Great Apes under Kanassa's moon. The color for the Great Ape's fur is usually brown and eyes are red as well.
A Saiyan loses the ability to reason in this form, and will typically display berserk and destructive characteristics, even in the cases of protagonists. To quote Yamcha , "When Goku transforms like that, he loses all sense of himself. He's just a big hairy ape with a sweet tooth for ripping people's limbs off.
Krillin theorized that half-earthling Saiyans that have transformed retain their human mind, enabling their loved ones to break through to them. This is also shown in the Bardock special as the transformed Team Bardock were able to focus on attacking their Kanassan enemies while avoiding attacking each other despite displaying the same berserker mindset as Goku and Gohan did in the form.
Despite the lack of self-awareness, as Saiyans mature, they can potentially be taught how to rein in their instincts and retain normal cognitive functions as Great Apes. This was displayed by Vegeta, who unlike Goku and Gohan, did receive this training, and was even able to talk. However, in the video games, it is implied that only super elites like Vegeta and his father or elite Saiyans like Nappa are capable of retaining their reason in this form, while low-class Saiyans like Turles and Raditz are not.
Saiyans who maintain their reason in this form are capable of utilizing its power to the fullest and as shown by Vegeta can even transform into their Golden Great Ape form from their Great Ape form which allows them to easily transform into Super Saiyan 4 as their ability to retain their reason transfers over to the Golden Great Ape form.
Saiyans can still manipulate their energy in this state for feats like flight and shooting beams, most commonly from their mouth in a manner akin to and possibly an intentional homage to Godzilla 's Atomic Breath. As the transformation causes the Saiyan to grow to several times their original size, the Saiyans wear special armor which can stretch to fit the Great Ape form and shrink back to fit their normal form, Goku and Gohan don't have this, since they live on Earth , so the transformation rips their clothes apart, meaning they revert to their normal forms naked.
The transformation process back to normal appears to be very exhausting as even Vegeta, a fully-trained and "Super Elite" Saiyan was left very winded from the experience, whereas Goku and Gohan were always rendered unconscious. A Great Ape's size remains mostly inconsistent throughout the Dragon Ball franchise, ranging from at least 50 feet tall to titanic stature. When first shown in Dragon Ball, it was the size of a Toei Kaiju, easily dwarfing Pilaf's entire castle, though later depictions shrank its size.
A generalization is that most average humanoid Saiyans can fit into the palm of a Great Ape's hand. As far as Goku's first shown transformation goes, he is much larger in the anime than he is in the manga. In the Budokai Tenkaichi series , the Great Ape's size was significantly cut down to likely 25—30 feet tall but they are still the largest characters in the game. Goku first transforms when Emperor Pilaf seals him and his friends inside a chamber designed to amplify the sun's rays, effectively cooking them alive when the sun rose, but a full moon rose first so Goku proceeded to go on a rampage destroying Pilaf's Castle.
While Yamcha and company decided it would be best to stay away from Goku until morning, Goku suddenly left the castle and attacked them. In the anime, Pilaf tries to fight Great Ape Goku before his plane crashes, but machine-gun fire only annoyed him, while a missile only knocked him out for a short time.
Yamcha then decided to try and cut his tail, thinking the pain would cause him to faint. Fortunately, removing his tail causes him to change back to normal. Earlier, Goku also mentions before transforming that his Grandpa Gohan told him never to look at the full moon and that Gohan was killed by a monster that comes out at the full moon, implying that Goku had transformed at least two times.
Goku transforms again during the 21st World Martial Arts Tournament when his tail grows back, and once again the transformation saves him from being defeated. Although Yamcha is ready to try and cut his tail off again, Jackie Chun comes up with a more permanent solution and uses a Kamehameha to destroy the moon. Interestingly, Goku recovers from this de-transformation and is conscious again before the delayed 10 count finishes. Although Goku never transforms again due to the lack of a moon, a Great Ape appears as a representation of his hidden power possibly symbolizing that he has become as strong as if he really was in his Great Ape form, most evident when he kills King Piccolo using his Penetrate!
It should be noted that the Great Ape was used to represent Goku's hidden potential that was unlocked when he drank the Ultra Divine Water, implying that by drinking it granted Goku to access the power of his Great Ape form while in his base form. By the time Goku is introduced as a young adult during the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament, his tail is absent.
When asked about this, Goku claimed Kami once offered to restore the moon in exchange for his tail to be removed. Gohan transforms when he is out in the wild. Once again, the transformation proves to be useful in a way as it gets Gohan down from a high peak he was stuck on.
Piccolo then destroys the moon, and just in case, removes Gohan's tail. The power Piccolo saw Gohan display in his transformed state caused him to become frightened by the idea of how strong Nappa and Vegeta would be in that state. In the anime only , Gohan's tail grew back again, coincidentally during a time when Goku's space pod started projecting an image of the full moon in the night sky.
Piccolo tries his best to stop him but is unable to match the Great Ape Gohan. He eventually finds the source of the moonlight and destroys it, reverting Gohan back to normal. He then removes Gohan's tail once again. Several homages to Goku's second transformation occur here, including Gohan transforming while being hit with an electrical attack.
As King Kai tells Goku about the history of the Saiyans, a flashback shows that the Saiyans were able to completely destroy the Tuffles: By transforming into Great Apes due to a Full Moon that happens only once every seven years eight in the dub versions , the Saiyan race was able to exterminate the Tuffles overnight.
After Goku's Kamehameha manages to overcome Vegeta's Galick Gun , Vegeta becomes furious and decides that he needs to transform to beat him. He soon takes note of the lack of a moon as he had planned the arrival to coincide with the full moon in case transformation was needed.
Unfortunately, he reveals that he is able to create a Power Ball to simulate the full moon's light, though this drains his power significantly. He then promptly transforms, overwhelming Goku completely and nearly killing him. His transformation is halted by Yajirobe cutting off his tail. Vegeta's transformation into a Great Ape also causes Goku to finally realize the truth of his own Great Ape transformations in the past were responsible for the death of his Grandpa Gohan and for the damage at the World Martial Arts Tournament.
When Vegeta's tail is cut off, Gohan learns about the process. During the same battle, Gohan's tail grows back and he uses the Power Ball still in the sky to transform. While Vegeta was able to initially get away from Gohan due to his unfocused rage, Goku was able to help Gohan focus on fighting Vegeta. Vegeta does surprisingly well against the beast but is ultimately outmatched. He manages to cut Gohan's tail off with an energy disk, but then Gohan falls on him when transforming back, which coupled with all of the other injuries forced him to retreat.
When Dodoria tells Vegeta about how Frieza got concerned about the Saiyans and destroyed them, a flashback shows a group of Saiyans transforming into Great Apes after one of them creates a Power Ball and destroys an entire planet. When Goku confronts the Ginyu Force , Vegeta's explanation of the legend of the Super Saiyan is a lot more detailed in the anime as it shows the original Super Saiyan as a Great Ape with yellowish fur instead of the standard brown. When Vegeta's spirit tells Goku about the Saiyans' near extinction at Frieza's hands, Vegeta appears in his original form, child form, and Great Ape form.
Ironically, an actual Great Ape appeared in a montage told by Krillin mentioning his awe at the Saiyans' evolving powers. After this point, there are no Saiyans with tails remaining and the Great Apes are mostly ignored for the rest of the series.
It makes one final appearance during Goku's Super Saiyan 3 transformation once again representing his hidden powers. The special features a Great Ape during the opening animation, as it is an updated version of the original intro sequence. Also, Tarble has a tail but he does not transform in the special. Main article: Golden Great Ape. In Dragon Ball GT , the design for the Great Ape form is slightly different than in the original, as it is more muscular and appears to have a large round belly.
When even Super Saiyan 3 Goku proves to be no match for Baby Vegeta , Old Kai decides that the only way he will stand a chance is to regrow Goku's tail. In this form, he seems to be able to overpower Baby Vegeta but is too primitive to focus on fighting him. Eventually, Pan is able to make Goku regain his composure and self-awareness long enough to undergo the transformation into a Super Saiyan 4. The beam is proven successful when Baby Vegeta transforms into a Golden Great Ape instead, increasing his power drastically.
He reveals he is able to control his form, even able to use ki based attacks. As the battle progresses, it becomes obvious that Baby Vegeta is slowly becoming more and more out of control. Eventually, Goku stops Baby Vegeta by blasting his tail off.
The machine transforms Vegeta into a regular Great Ape. In this form, Vegeta feints an attack against Goku. The morning after, they have a conversation about how much they remember of the night prior and it is revealed that Bardock can apparently remember everything he does as a Great Ape, whether or not he has control of what he is doing is not said. Although technically they should be berserk, the entire team seems to be able to work together in Great Ape form and refrain from attacking each other which could be a reference to the fact that Saiyans are trained to control their Great Ape forms, like Vegeta in the Vegeta Saga.
Interestingly, even though the movie is set after Goku's first transformation, the scene plays out almost exactly like Goku's first transformation. Goku's transformation frees Yamcha and co from a dire situation, though, instead of destroying everything around him, he immediately chases after his friends. Yamcha once again grabs onto Goku's tail and although Goku isn't completely immobilized like last time, Puar is still able to cut Goku's tail off by transforming into scissors.
A complete transformation and reversion sequence is lacking in this movie. Deciding to have a little fun, Turles creates a Power Ball and makes Gohan look at it. Interestingly, he destroys the Power Ball while Gohan is transforming without having an effect on the transformation.
Goku fights Gohan with little luck against the beast, but Icarus appears and is able to calm Gohan down. Turles, annoyed at what is happening, blasts away Icarus, causing Gohan to attack Turles. Turles is ready to take down Gohan with one attack, but Goku uses an energy disk to cut Gohan's tail off saving him from Turles' attack. An evil Saiyan is shown in this state during the flashback of his battle with the original Super Saiyan God. In Dragon Ball Super: Broly , Paragus warns Beets against looking at the moon while searching for Broly on Vampa noting that a non-combatant like Beets would not be able to control himself.
An experienced soldier and warrior, Paragus himself points out to Beets who had never transformed that Saiyans generally should only resort to the Great Ape transformation when backed into a corner. Upon finding Broly, Paragus realizes his son had looked at the moon and transformed after noticing his son's battle armor was stretched and torn in places and Broly's standard Great Ape form appears in a brief flashback of his first Great Ape transformation.
During the time Broly and Paragus were stranded on Vampa, Paragus removed Broly's tail as a precaution due to Broly's inability to control himself. However, while fighting Super Saiyan God Vegeta, Broly transforms into his Wrath State which Paragus surmises is the result of Broly accessing the power of a Great Ape without transforming into one though he notes to Frieza it has a major drawback as Wrathful Broly loses control over himself. Lychee 's flashback. Raichi is also shown being originally killed by a kick from a Great Ape, though is later brought back by Hatchiyack as a Ghost Warrior.
In Dragon Ball , Great Apes were just large and powerful, without any special abilities; they just rampaged about destroying anything in their way. They did, however, share the same weakness as a regular Saiyan in that they can be rendered powerless if their tail was squeezed tightly enough. In Dragon Ball Z , however, Great Apes became much more destructive with the ability to fire overwhelmingly powerful Ki blasts from their mouths. Additionally, Vegeta has shown that certain Saiyans of "Elite" status can control their Great Ape forms, even being able to speak while transformed.
Vegeta's speed was not affected by the transformation and he could still fly, despite his massive size. It is also said that a Saiyan's power is multiplied tenfold when transformed into the Great Ape. In Dragon Ball GT , Great Apes gain the ability to breathe fire , which is further shown when Baby Vegeta uses the ability as well as the same ki based attacks he could use while not transformed.
The remade Dr. Slump TV show features a crossover with Goku, during his time there, he transforms into a Great Ape and starts destroying Penguin Village , although Arale Norimaki does not find him threatening. Several attempts are made to bring him down, but it is only when Arale grabs onto his tail and throws him into an open area that Goku transforms back to his base form, presumably from exhaustion. The Great Ape transformation appears in the film Dragonball Evolution , where it is revised so that it is not a Saiyan transformation, but instead a god called Oozaru who works together with Piccolo to destroy the world before the latter is imprisoned.
What happened to Oozaru after Piccolo's incarceration is never revealed. However, he somehow bonds with Goku and after his eighteenth birthday during an eclipse, Goku transforms into Oozaru. While Tekka wins the fight, Ultra Pinich merely recovers from the damage due to Piccolo 's cells, though their Ki is lowered. Due to that, they proceed to create a Power Ball to turn themselves into a Golden Great Ape , claiming it was meant for Beerus. Tekka and his team proceed to fight Great Ape Pinich, and during the fight, Pinich gains control over himself for his final battle with Tekka.
Tekka's team is, once again, victorious. As Ultra Pinich falls into the timespace hole, the Ultra Fusion ends. Tekka himself jumps in after them to save Pinich. Ultra Pinich is extremely powerful, easily killing Super Saiyan Blue Goku with a single attack, and then destroying Earth. Had it not been for Whis rewinding time, he would have won. Beerus was also capable of deflecting Ultra Pinich attack easily.
Unlike other Ultra Fusions, for unknown reasons, Ultra Pinich's fusion lasts for an indeterminate amount of time, far longer than other Ultra Fusions. However his strength is slightly higher due to being a boss character. Main articles: Super Saiyan and Fusion forms Thanks to Pinich being in his Super Saiyan form when he did the fusion, Ultra Pinich possesses a Super Saiyan form as his regular state mixed with Frieza's final form and Cell's perfect form which has a Super Saiyan aura due to the influence of his Saiyan genetics and S-Cells.
Main article: Golden Great Ape. This form is very powerful and Ultra Pinich planned to save it for fighting Beerus. While this form is at first in full control of Frieza and Cell as the original Ultra Pinich form was, turning into a Great Ape awakened Pinich's Saiyan powers, ultimately leading to him taking control over the Ultra Fusion. As his Super Saiyan form is always active, presumably he is unable to transform into a normal Great Ape. Dragon Ball Wiki Explore.
