Goku SSGod vs Goku SSBlue Comparison:
Who is stronger? Goku SSJ God(red) or SSJ Blue? This is a question that many of us have been asking for a while now. Does Strength only take in the factor of power level? Toriyama gave a little not so satisfactory rather contradictory answer to the same. He said SSJ God, the red form was stronger than SSJ Blue because to him Red as a color seems stronger than Blue in an interview. Well, no.
Let’s get into the real reason why Red could be stronger than Blue. As far as power level is concerned, I think may be Red might just be stronger than Blue. I say that because of previous evidence. Remember the time when Goku fought Beerus? Beerus had to use over 70% of his power level which he said himself. So, if Blue was actually stronger than Red, shouldn’t Vegeta and Goku together beat the God out of Beerus?
The Downside of Red of course is it’s instability meaning Goku can’t maintain it for a long amount of time. While Blue is stable but consumes a large amount of energy. As far as official statements go, Goku himself said it, Super Saiyan Blue is the power of the God form mixed with the Super Saiyan form. Which in a simple sense means Blue is just a part of Red.
I know the manga and the anime is not really related but the story line does match to a large extent. So why not give a look to clues that we might just get from the Manga. In the manga, Vegeta too, has been given the Super Saiyan God form. Unlike the anime Super Saiyan Blue is said to have a really big drawback in the manga, that is, It requires a lot of energy when one has to switch into the Blue form.
Again, it is confirmed in both Anime and Manga that the Blue form is way stronger than any form attained by any Saiyan yet. But that is what gives the Super Saiyan Red or God forms its advantage. It consumes less stamina. Vegeta masters the trick to switching between God(red) and Blue form in the Hyperbolic time chamber and uses his ability to fight Black Goku. Believe it or not, He is confirmed to have a better stamina than Goku in the manga.
Usage and power
The power of this Red form is great enough to allow Goku to fight against the God of Destruction Beerus, who had effortlessly defeated Super Saiyan 3 Goku, Majin Buu, Super Saiyan 3 Goten and a Super Charged Vegeta in his Super Saiyan 2 form, and was thought to be strong enough to defeat even a fusion of Goku and Vegeta.
The sheer power of Goku and Beerus’ fists colliding sent ripples throughout the universe, with Old kai commenting 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’ Sphere of Destruction.
In the anime too, it has been told more than just once that Super Saiyan is harsh on the body, though there is no such heavy loss of energy to switch between forms but the God(red) form would logically be a better choice for the long fight, given it is definitely stronger than any of the yellow transformation and as it is less powerful than the Blue form, wouldn’t it be a better pick for fighting fatal fighters? Well, not always power level wins.
It might be a debatable to ask Which is stronger, The Blue or Red, but think about this, Why would the red form ever come back if it was not significant enough? Goku would be using it against Dyspo, who indeed has the speciality of super speed, the level of speed which could actually challenge Hit’s time skip, could this mean Red is faster than Blue too? That makes complete sense given, the Ultra form gives you strength but at the cost of speed, could Blue form be the Ultra form for the Red?
