In Dragon Ball Z, the abbreviations for Super Saiyan 1 and 2 are SSJ and SSJ2. However, there is no 'j' in Saiyan, so where does this 'j' come from in the abbreviation?


It comes from the Japanese original name for Super Saiyan: 超{スーパー}サイヤ人{じん}, pronounced Sūpā Saiya-jin.

You can read more about it at http://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/Super_Saiyan.

Jin means "people/person." 'Gaikoku-jin' means foreigners.


It means Super Saiya Jin , jin is "people" Saiya Jin = saiya people , Namekusei Jin = namekusei people , Nihonjin = japan people
