This article we would get you the key difference between Super Saiyan God and Super Saiyan Blue. Once up on a time, they were actually used interchangeably in the manga and now that we have a clear distinction between them, I thought to write something on it.
Starting with the appearance then going to the power usage, I personally like the Blue form more but let’s start with the Red.
When in this form, the Saiyan’s general appearance has only slight differences. The most notable change is the darker skin tone and magenta/red hair. The hair remains its natural style yet more refined (losing any stray hairs). The Saiyan’s eyes become more detailed and the irises become red, generally becoming more relaxed even in battle until becoming angered enough. The overall body structure appears to become younger and thinner in the frame and build. The aura of the Super Saiyan God resembles a raging fire.
The power of this form is great enough to allow Goku to fight against the God of Destruction Beerus, who had effortlessly defeated Super Saiyan 3 Goku, Ultimate Gohan, Majin Buu, Super Saiyan 3 Gotenks, and a super-charged Super Saiyan 2 Vegeta.
It was so intense that the amazing power of Goku and Beerus’s fists colliding sent ripples throughout the whole universe, with Old Kai passing a statement that just three punches could wipe out everything in the universe, leaving a void of nothingness!
This form also allows the user to sense and possess godly ki which can only be sensed by deities while simultaneously preventing non-deities from sensing the user. This form also has the ability to absorb and nullify enemy attacks upon contact, which Goku accomplished in a last-ditch effort to stop Beerus’s Sphere of Destruction and also to take the trap hit in the last episode.
Then let’s look at Blue. For anyone of you who think that any super saiyan form is stronger than Blue, it is not. It has been said and said and said a million times in the anime and also the Manga.
In Goku’s case only, a difference from his normal Super Saiyan form, a large forward-curling bang appears to be protruding upwards from the main bangs, from either the left or right side. Super Saiyan Blue boasts a vibrant, fiery, electric cyan blue aura, as opposed to the blazing orange aura from Super Saiyan God.
The aura surrounding the Super Saiyan Blue form also appears to be glittering somewhat, with small sparkling particles of energy travelling upwards within the flames, with occasional surges of electricity. If one inspects closely, a very subtle yellow glow can be seen on the outside of the aura as well.
It was not directly stated why this is present, but it could be remnants of the original Super Saiyan transformation. This dual colored aura resembles that of Trunks’s Super Saiyan Anger form. Unlike the main Super Saiyan transformations, the user’s body does not glow in Blue form without an aura.
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 individual’s status).
And reactivating their non-god enhanced Super Saiyan form. Alternatively, as shown in the anime and by Goku Black in the manga, the Saiyan can evolve their Super Saiyan form into Super Saiyan Blue if they increase its strength until it surpasses Super Saiyan God. In fact Trunks did go till Dummy God form!
That was the basic difference between the Red and Blue form. Last episode we saw Goku doing the switching from strategy. That by far is the best strategy ever for Manga and the Anime. The red form is not as powerful as the Blue but what it has is the speed which the Blue form lacks. We can expect a form which is both faster and stronger at the same time. There will be a new form and that is confirmed by various legit sources but for now I find this strategy awesome.
