The powers of the Dragon Ball’s Saiyan have been taken to the next level thanks to Dragon Ball Super. The Dragon Ball Z sequel series commences with the introduction of the concept of Super Saiyan transformation. In addition, the powers of Goku and Vegeta also feature in the series. However, Dragon Ball fans have one significant question in making up their minds. Which is, who is stronger between Super Saiyan God, or Super Saiyan 4?
What is the difference between Super Saiyan God and Super Saiyan 4?
After the Dragon ball character Beerus defeats Super Saiyan 3 Goku, he believes that a new character can be formed by channeling the energies of all other Saiyan’s.
This leads to the formation of Super Saiyan God. Meanwhile, the only way a Saiyan can gain Super Saiyan 4 level is when he can harness the inner power to do so. Goku did this when the sight of his house caused him to transform into a gigantic ape.
Why is it difficult to pick a winner among the two?
At first glance, it seems that there is not enough evidence present to decide a winner between the two. The comparison is difficult to make since Super Saiyan 4 is not a part of the Dragon Ball canon. The character has made his appearance in the Dragon Ball GT series, and a few other video games of the Dragon Ball franchise. Meanwhile, Super Saiyan God is an official part of the Dragon Ball canon.
How the new Dragon Ball movie settles the debate
However, with the release of the recent movie Dragon Ball Super: Broly, the debate regarding the comparisons made between the two characters may be finally over. Broly’s father Paragus attributes Broly’s superpowers due to him channeling a Saiyan ape’s power.
His powers were gained as a result of his father amputating his tail. The movie answers the question as to who is stronger between the two characters. The film depicts that Broly’s power is too much to be matched by Goku and Vegeta in their Super Saiyan forms.
Even in an instance where Goku has Broly locked in an energy trap, he simply muscles his way out of it. Thus, it is known that Super Saiyan God is a more powerful character.
