The Original Super Saiyan spoken of in legends and myths. His own power destroyed him.
The Original Super Saiyan was the first Super Saiyan known to exist, who lived on the original Saiyan home world. Vegeta states that according to the Super Saiyan legend, the Original Super Saiyan lived 1,000 years prior to the events of Dragon Ball Z (3,000 in the Ocean dub) and was only able to control his power in the Great Ape state. This would mean he transformed into a Golden Great Ape, or something similar, rather than just a Super Saiyan. Vegeta also said that the Original Super Saiyan's power was so immense that it destroyed not only him, but the entire home planet of the Saiyans as well. This forced the Saiyan race to evacuate, ultimately migrating to Planet Plant, which they later conquered and renamed Planet Vegeta.
The Original Super Saiyan's name is unknown and he lived so long ago that his existence became more of a myth than a legend, however Goku proved that the legend was plausible by transforming into a Super Saiyan himself. In the manga Vegeta never mentions the Original Super Saiyan but merely says that every one thousand years a Super Saiyan appears.
