Super Saiyan God (超サイヤ人ゴッド) is a Super Saiyan form that goes even beyond Super Saiyan 3. It appears in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, and it represents the other God in the Japanese title for the film: Dragon Ball Z: God and God (ドラゴンボールZ 神と神), as well as the reason for the plural "Gods" in the English title.
The "Super Saiyan God" is the legend among legends of the warrior race, the Saiyans. This tremendous being contains wondrous legends passed down to the Saiyans, the mightiest warriors in the universe. The power of six pure-hearted Saiyans is needed for one of them to achieve this legendary form.
Super Saiyan God once appeared on Planet Vegeta to stop bad Saiyans, but he failed because of the form's time limit; when Shenron explains about this in the movie, an image of a Great Ape is shown. 39 years before the events of Battle of Gods, the Oracle Fish foretold the appearance of the Super Saiyan God to the God of Destruction Bills. This revelation is what hastens the God of Destruction's awakening in the film and the genesis of the events of Battle of Gods.
Goku decides to use the Dragon Balls and ask Shenron how to reach the Super Saiyan God. He and his friends summon Shenron, and the dragon reveals that they need the power of six pure-hearted Saiyans for one of them to reach the form. Goku transforms into a Super Saiyan God thanks to the power of himself, Vegeta, Gohan, Trunks, Goten, and Pan (from inside her mother, as she was not born yet). The Saiyans hold their hands, float in the air, and Goku is surrounded by a blue aura and white aura while powering up to this form. Goku then appears with his hair glowing red and with shape similar to that of his base form, and he has flame like red aura. The power of this ultimate warrior excites even the God of Destruction Bills. The form gives Goku the power to resist Bills, but he reverts back to his regular Super Saiyan form due the form's time limit. However, he learns the form's godlike feeling, which allows him to use Super Saiyan God's power against Bills. The two seem to be equally strong at some point, but Bills eventually wins and he says that the Super Saiyan God was not that strong and the Oracle Fish's prediction was a little exaggerated. As Bills is completely worn out, Whis karate-chops him and puts him to sleep for 3 years, and the two then leave. Vegeta says that he will be Super Saiyan God next time.
