It was only one year ago that we got a brand new hair color in the Dragon Ball universe (blue Super Saiyan hair), and now it seems series creator Akira Toriyama is ready to dive even deeper into the world of pastels with a pink or “rose” colored hairdo.

For those who don’t know, the significance of hair color is that it’s a side effect of a “transformation” or a drastic raise in a character’s power level. If you watch the show, you get it. It’s a whole lot of fun.

Kotaku reports that, in the ongoing series Dragon Ball SuperBlack Goku might get a transformation in an upcoming episode of the show. When translated into english, it looks like folks are calling this “Super Saiyan Pink,” but according to this Japanese TV anime listing (via Dragon Ball Sokuhou), it’s called “Super Saiyan Rose” (超サイヤ人ロゼ).

Just what does it look like? Well a leaked picture may shed some light on the new transformation:


Not gonna lie, the pink-on-black combo actually looks pretty awesome. But I want to know what you think, Dragon Ball fans! Let me know in the comments below, and stick with ITM for all things fun!

    It’s Rosé (RO-ZE). Not Rose.
    Anyone that can read Hiragana can see that. “Roh-ZAY”. It’s a pun of Rosé Wine. Rosé wine has a dark pink color to it. The alcohol puns continue the ongoing god naming gimmick. Whis: Whisky, Beerus: Beer. Champa: Champagne and Vados: Calvados (French Apple Brandy).

    The Rosé pun is a connection to the gods, SPOILER ALERT:

    Zamasu is connected to Black in some way. It’s no surprise that Black’s SSJ form is the spectrum opposite of SSJ Blue’s light blue color with a SSJ form having dark pink. It’s also no surprise that it’s tied to the gods with the pun because like SSJ Blue, SSJ Rosé is going to be using god ki as well. If you disagree, how the hell else would it keep up with SSJ Blue?

    Even though db gt was created by a diff person, i think it would b cool to bring those characters into the series and state that they r from a diff universe, n compare power levels n fighting skills. I also feel that db super needs to get more creative with transformations for saiyans, all that really is changing is the hair color and the aura, which makes it boring.
