The transformation causes some stark changes in physical appearance. The trademark characteristic of the transformation is the user's hair: the hair of the Super Saiyan 4 state changes drastically, and grows down to or sometimes passes the user's waist, similarly like the Super Saiyan 3 form. But traces of the Super Saiyan 4 hair can be seen as well, forming bizarre hairstyles. The brow ridge that is seen from the Super Saiyan 3 transformation is visible as well, though not as much as it is with the Super Saiyan 3 form. In this form, the Saiyan's hair color differs from silver to a dark grey, the same goes for the tail and the fur covering the body. A Saiyan in this form also possesses a shadow trim around the eyes and over the eyelids that varies in color, such as a dark bluish-gray or crimson. A similar aura like the Super Saiyan Blue transformation erupts around a Super Saiyan God 4 as well.
