How Did Vegeta Become Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan? 

In recent Dragon Ball video games, as well as in the new Dragon Ball Super anime & manga, Vegeta demonstrates his strengths by turning into a Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan, also referred to as Super Saiyan Blue by Whis – I will call it Blue Mode for the sake of the article.

When Lord Beerus came to Earth searching for the legendary Super Saiyan God, he stumbled on Goku. Searching for answers to help the destruction God, in order to save their planet, Shenron was summoned and asked about this curious new form. At that point, we learned that a ritual was required; five righteous Saiyans need to hold hands and a sixth righteous Saiyan to channel the ritual and ki into. Doing so makes the chosen Saiyan turn into a Super Saiyan God, the form with the red hair we see in “Sorry for Waiting, Beerus-sama! Finally, Super Saiyan God is Born!”

Once that is achieved, the energy of the God mode remains in the body. Goku was able to tap into it and bring it out in the form of Blue mode, as seen in “Clash! Freeza vs. Son Goku! This is the Fruit of My Training!”. Later, in “Earth Explodes?! The Decisive Kamehameha Wave” Vegeta demonstrated that he can become Super Saiyan Blue as well. Was the ritual performed with Vegeta as the receiving Saiyan as well? The answer is no! Actually, in that same episode, Goku explains that Vegeta was able to reach this level on his own, without borrowing anyone’s power.

Compared to Goku, Vegeta is a lot smarter when it comes to combat. While the former has natural fighting skills and often on the front lines, the ladder analyses thoroughly fights and even trains harder than others in order to catch up and hopefully surpass Goku. That being said, his intellect was necessary to achieve this new form.

Did Vegeta really reach that level on his own?

In my opinion, Vegeta was able to tap into Blue mode by searching deep inside for the God energy that was linked to him during the initial ritual performed on Goku. Moments before the completion of the ritual, all six selected righteous Saiyans, including Videl with her unborn child, had Super Saiyan yellow hair and started glowing with a similar blue aura the Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan form evokes. After seeing how Goku was able to tap into it, Vegeta trained hard in order to achieve this form. It was probably during one of Whis’ training that Vegeta figured it out and trained to use and control it.

Does this make Vegeta stronger than Goku in that form? While some would argue that Goku always remained on top, I believe that at the time being, Vegeta in Blue Mode is slightly stronger. The reason why I came to this conclusion is because of the fact that during their training on Beerus’ grounds, Whis increased the weights Vegeta used. Whis even went as far as to say that they are “twice as heavy” as those Goku were using. Are these signs that the Prince of Saiyans caught up?

Based off my theory, Blue mode was achieved mainly because of the fact that Vegeta was exposed to the God energy aforementioned above. However, you might recall that, in addition to Goku and Vegeta, Trunks, Goten, Videl (and her unborn baby Pan), and Gohan were also exposed. What about them?

Do Gohan, Trunks, Goten and Pan have to potential to reach Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan? Will we see them reach that level sometime in future episodes from the Dragon Ball Super series? Give us your opinion on the matter in the comment section below!
