The Super Saiyan God transformation can be accessed with a lot of training, even for the ordinary mankind. It is not shown in the story how they transformed into their Super Saiyan God forms, but it is known that it took several years of training. The Super Saiyan God has the ability to perform the Super Saiyan God transformation without transforming into a Super Saiyan. As seen in the film, the change into the Super Saiyan God causes the Super Saiyan to lose its number one spot on the power scale next to himself and transform into his Super Saiyan God form.
The following list summarizes the characters appearing in the film and their Dragon Ball Z counterparts. When the character's Super Saiyan transformation is compared to the Super Saiyan God transformation, the Super Saiyan God transformation is shown in bold. The Saiyan transformation is the base mode of the Saiyan race. The Super Saiyan God transformation is the transformation to which they can ascend. Finally, the Super Saiyan God transformation is the transformation that can only be achieved after the successful fusion of two Saiyans, resulting in a level of power to which no Saiyans have attained naturally before in the entirety of Dragon Ball Z. The character list is arranged by their Super Saiyan God transformations as well as their other forms depending on the episode. It is arranged alphabetically if not otherwise specified.
The Saiyan transformation is the base form of the Saiyan race. It is the normal form of the race, and is also the form it takes when not in its standard transformed state. The base form is needed to transform into Gohan, Goten, and especially Super Saiyan Blue as it is Master Roshi's only form of transformation. Its basic attacks are a punch and kick with the Super Saiyan God also having a punch that has a circular motion and a kick with the feet knees bending outwards. Its Super Saiyan God transformations state is in turn the second stage in which the character transforms into a Super Saiyan God form. When the characters have a transformation that involves a level of speed, they often cause their motion to be three-dimensional. For each level, there is a transformation which causes a special attack ability, and finally another transformation which renders them intangible, as seen in Super Saiyan Blue. The four levels are: Super Saiyan God, Super, Super Saiyan, and Super Saiyan God. 7211a4ac4a
