Super Saiyan 5 is the successor of Super Saiyan 4. Goku Jr. is the first Saiyan to obtain this transformation, which he acquired during his training with his grandfather in the Other World.

Super Saiyan 5 is takes resemblance of Super Saiyan 3, and Super Saiyan 4. The red color of the Super Saiyan 4's tail and fur turns to a gold color and power naturally radiates off of the person. The hair and tail are lengthened as well, giving an appearance similar to a Super Saiyan 3.The eyebrows disappear and the brow of the user is much more prominent.

Usage & Power
Super Saiyan 5 is the strongest a Saiyan can reach with pure strength alone. It utilizes their primal power and the overwhelming strength of a Super Saiyan. Though not as strong as Super Saiyan God 4, Super Saiyan 5 can reach level exceeding that of Dark Super Saiyan 4 and Saiyan Rage 4. Goku Jr. at his best could hold his own against Zaiko with his demonic Saiyan powers in a sparring match.
While the form is quite powerful, it can be strenuous to maintain in the mist of battle. The Saiyan must have constant control over the instincts of their Saiyan nature as well as the powerful emotions of a Super Saiyan. These effects can be less if one mastered the Super Saiyan transformation.The transformation first appears during Goku Jr.'s training for the Time Tournament in order to find an alternative to the immensely powerful transformation Super Saiyan God 4, a form that Goku Jr. had not learned how to achieve. His ancestor, Goku, was initially amazed by the younger Saiyan's ascension but immediately saw the drawbacks of the form. Disregarding his grandfather's warnings, Goku Jr. trains to master his new transformation. Goku Jr. displays his strength against Zaiko, holding his own against the powerful demon Saiyan who just a few days prior took him out without a sweat.
- Saiyans in this form can only be defeated by other Saiyans, Demigods or Gods.
