Trunks's new transformation, also known as "Super Saiyan Rage" has only been achieved by him. Neither Goku, Vegeta or Gohan has achieved it. We don't know much what it's required to acquire this transformation, one of the requirements seems to be being extremely furious, but this doesnt seem to be the only one. Gokú was very furious when in Super Saiyan Blue he was told Chichi and Gotenk were killed in another dimesion, he had an increase in power but he didnt transform into Super Saiyan Rage. Gohan had been many times very furious, particulary the time when he already had acquired the super saiyan 2 level, when Spopovich almost kills Videl, he didnt turn into Super Saiyan Rage. And particulary Vegeta, when he was already a Super Saiyan 2, and Beerus slaps Bulma, he was so furious than when being in Super Saiyan 2 it is said by others (Roshi, Beerus, etc) that he surpassed the power of Goku's super saiyan 3, but he didnt become super saiyan rage. What does this mean then? Can any other saiyan become super saiyan rage?

Trunks's first actual super saiyan transformation was when he saw his role model Gohan die after that he got really angry and swore revenge on the androids.

A reason Goku cant get super saiyan rage is even though he got mad and transformed into a super saiyan and wanted to avenge Krillin he wasn't as mad as Trunks as you could see Trunks got so mad that his tears were being vaporised off his face.

A reason it didn't happen for Vegeta was that he was super Vegeta, a custom super saiyan based more on ki based attacks and super Vegeta can only transform twice so he still wasn't as mad as Trunks.

  • In all honesty......the vaporised tears I thought of a side effect of the power he was streaming out not the anger exactly.

Maybe it's a transformation only half-Saiyans can get.

With the exception of Vegeta turning mad against Beerus and reaching a level close to SSJ3 (x4 multiplier), the only Saiyans who seem to get such incredible boost of power with rage are Gohan and Trunks who are half-Saiyans. Gohan, when against Frieza, got a power boost from around 20,000 to close a million to be able to take him down (over x20 for sure). Also, when against Raditz, he just went from the power level of a regular kid to 1,300. Trunks with Super Saiyan Rage went from a level near SSJ2-SSJ3 to the level of a Super Saiyan Blue.

When Goku fought Beerus in SSJ3, Beerus was using less than 1% of his power, later he used 70% of his power IIRC. Then, Super Saiyan God boosted his power x60 times from SSJ3. That means when Trunks jumped from SSJ2 to Super Saiyan Rage (he got a boost with a lower bound of at least x60 times), the lower bound is more likely 960x times since he jumped from SSJ2 to a transformation that goes beyond SSJ3, Super Saiyan God and close or over Super Saiyan Blue. Adding all the multipliers of these transformations (we know the multiplier for SSJ3 is x4 SSJ2 and the multiplier of SSJGod most likely has a lower bound of x60, then we know nothing about the multiplier of Super Saiyan Blue. Most likely, it has a lower bound of x4. Otherwise, it wouldn't make sense to use it in many situations since it drains your power and stress you more than Super Saiyan God)


Trunks always had Super Saiyan Rage but he couldn't fully harness its power, not until he absorbed Goku's Genki Dama (spirit bomb) like when Vegeta did the same thing in fusion reborn (I know that it isn't canon but it is to prove a point) and Goku absorbed a Genki Dama in Super Android 13.

The point is that when a Super Saiyan absorbs a Genki Dama, their dormant Super Saiyan energy is released.


Trunks and Vegeta did rage when Beerus smacked Bulma. And for Trunks, it was kind of an emotional thing when he thought he was weak and couldn’t defeat Goku Black and Zamasu.


Well..goku can use super saiyan rage all he has to do is channel so much rage use super saiyan 2 and obsorb the spirit bomb which should be step one and if goku does all of that he can go super saiyan rage but he doesn’t need to cause he has got ssb and it is clearly stronger
